Sleep is vital to our continued physical and mental health. God's Word (I am a Christian) tells us in Psalm 127:2 that He loves to give His children
rest. If you are not a believer, by virtue of the fact that we as humans require sleep elucidates the Designer or Creator's intention.
Next, the Word says that as a man thinks, so is he. You must stop laying claim to insomnia. Your very words are damning you to this hellish
experience. You are pledging allegiance to its authority to remain in your life. Your words are creative energy that bring blessing or cursing into
your life. One of the greatest tests of any man's faith is to speak creatively that which he is aiming for rather than verbally wallowing in filth
by deifying and enthroning present circumstances.
1. Your SOUL-your mind, will and emotions-were traumatized and that trauma has been imprinted on every cell of your being (read up on the autonomic
nervous system comprised of the parasympathetic and sympathetic systems).
2. Physically, your BODY must get off the medication. You will never sleep properly with that horid poison in your system. You were made for
health-your body was designed for health and to heal itself. Every pursuit toward perfect health must be pure in that it must be a movement toward
empowering the body to once again sustain itself.
3. You must deal with the trauma SPIRITUALLY which will then allow the body to heal itself. God cares for you; He wants you to cast your cares upon
Him. He is the burden-bearing, yoke-destroying God who sent His Son to die not only to take away your sins but to take away your sicknesses. Isaiah
53:5 says, "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his
stripes we are healed." If you can but believe that He did this for you and-to the exclusion of what you are experiencing-allow this to rewrite the
script of your mind, I promise you He will heal, save and deliver you from this hell.
*Get moving. It goes without saying that you should be exercising and trying to eat as close to natural as possible. Try not to exercise after 2 or
3 in the afternoon and steer clear of stimulants ie caffiene after noon.
*No TV in the bedroom.
*Make sure your bedroom is as dark as you can get it and cover the LED light on your alarm. Ensure your room is around 68 degrees. Try wearing socks
when you go to bed-that sometimes helps.
*Once you have turned out the lights and climbed into bed, tell yourself OUT LOUD what a wonderful night's sleep you are about to have. Thank God
(or whoever) for all the wonderful things that happened to you that day. Feel the energy of love move from your heart out into the room around you.
Thank God for the bed, the hot shower, the nourishing dinner... Close your eyes, place your tongue on the roof of your mouth and roll your eyes
heavenward (lids closed) continuing to move your heart's energy out into the room. You will be asleep in less than a minute in time. I promise.
God bless you.
