Six Tips for Better Sleep
I have been having some interesting things occur with people that I’m coaching and other people that I have been interacting with and it’s around sleep. I’m wondering if you have had any difficulty sleeping. Have you awakened in the night more than maybe once or twice? Do you wake up and find it hard to get back to sleep? Do you find it hard to get to sleep? Do you wake up early in the morning and you’re ready to get up or you’re tired but you can’t go back to sleep either? It appears that what’s occurring is that we have a lot of things happening on our planet. I know I say this every time, but we come back to the energy. There’s a lot of things that are going on as we are progressing very rapidly through some very fun, interesting, and for some people, challenging times.It's been proven through studies that at least seven hours of sleep is critical.

Sleep is an absolute necessity in our bodies. It is a time when it gets to recharge and rejuvenate itself. Your immune system is increased because it has a chance to relax and get rid of all of the toxins and things that have been going on. In fact, at night is when we have an opportunity to utilize our dreams to release toxins, mental and emotional. In our physical body, we give all of the organs a chance to release the things that have been caught up in the lymph system and the organs that are needing to filter out the things that we caught during the day. In addition to all of that, there’s a resting stage that goes on that’s very important. Sleep is very critical. It’s been proven through studies that at least seven hours of sleep is critical.
I know some of you don’t sleep that much and others of you may find that you need eight or nine or ten, and especially at certain points in your life. Whatever it is that your body is saying, it’s very important that you listen. There are factors that have to do with our sleep being interrupted that don’t have anything necessarily to do with energy. Before we get to those, let me speak about some energetic things. For one thing, the moon. It is a very powerful energetic influence on our planet. We have a new moon about every 30 days and we have full moon about every 30 days. That means every other week, we have something going on that has a very intense energetic impact on our bodies. The moon has something to do with the emotional body and it also has something to do with an input of different energies.Whatever it is that your body is saying, it’s very important that you listen to it.

The full moon is when everything gets bigger. Some people that are very sensitive, such as myself, feel bigger. I might even gain a pound or two and it appears to just be fluid. Around the full moon, I feel bigger and fuller. I also noticed that most people are more emotional. You might find that you’re more irritable or grief-stricken and sad. You might find yourself crying when you see a commercial on television. The moon, in general, has to do with emotions. It is also during the new and full moon that we have parasites that are in our body, which everyone has in your colon in particular, although they can be anywhere. They have their first cycle occur around the full moon and the new moon. You may notice that around the new moon, you might feel more irritable. When you have parasites or amoebas or things of that nature going on in your body, they’re bursting at a very high and rapid rate around that time.
What occurs is they can cause irritability and agitation in the body. It can cause nausea, sometimes even vomiting, and the feelings of being out of sorts and not together. It can have a lot to do with depression. It can have a lot to do with your stomach having gas and bloating. You might have diarrhea or constipation. The body gets out of sorts when the parasites become agitated or activated or increased. It doesn’t mean that that can’t be happening all the time. It’s that when they are going through their life cycle at a more prevalent state, it also happens around the full moon as well as the new moon. If you’re having any of these symptoms, contact me and I can give you some guidance about doing a worming program for yourself, which is delightful for the body. I suggest that you do that at least twice a year. Some people do it every three or four months. That’s something that you can contact me at Esateys@UltimateRelationshipAcademy.com and I’ll be happy to tell you more about that.
Sage Your Home
The second thing is that the basic energy on the planet is changing. There are certain, not just moon cycles, but planetary cycles that have to do with eclipses. That also has to do with the moon, sun, and all different kinds of planetary changes. Those things are influencing your sleep cycle. The parasites influence your sleep cycle. Here are some things that you can do. First of all, if you haven’t done so in the last 30 days, sage your home. Sage is an herb that you can buy at most health food stores. It’s dry, you light it on fire, you blow out the flame, and it turns into smoke. You walk around in every single room in corner of your home and hold pleasant, kind, clean, clear thoughts and say, “I love living in an open, clear environment.” Some prayers or chants or whatever it is you want to do or you don’t have to do anything. The bottom line is that the smoke of the sage will help clear out any incongruent energies.
Do Not Eat Three Hours Prior To Sleeping
Another thing that I recommend that you do is to not eat at least three hours prior to going to sleep. This is important, and the reason is that, first of all, your body starts going into trying to digest your food properly. The second thing is that, depending upon what you eat and your body, it will cause a spike in your blood sugar. When that blood sugar drops, you may go into reactive hypoglycemia, which will cause you to have low blood sugar. It will wake you up and you won’t necessarily feel very good in the night. That causes very fitful sleeping. Please do not eat close to bedtime and be sure that you eat a good amount of protein as your last meal of the day.
Do Not Watch Or Read Anything Upsetting Or Stressful
The third thing you can do is do not watch any movie or TV or read anything that is upsetting or stressful or like a thriller kind of thing. If you do that three hours before you go to bed, your body is going to release a certain hormone. An adrenal response occurs, and actual real triggers can be up to 72 hours before those hormones are completely absorbed back into the body. If you have a certain body type and a certain way that your body handles things, you might be in a stressful situation without you even realizing it because you watch something that was stressful or upsetting. Even though you don’t consciously think you’re upset about it, it can definitely play a part in how well and how deep you sleep, and when you wake up or not.
Do Relaxing Meditation Before Sleeping
The fourth thing is to listen to or do a meditation that is relaxing before you sleep. That’s a powerful thing to do. Remember to say, “Take me beyond where it is that my mind knows to go.” When you do that, you give your mind permission to get away from all the recycled stuff and go to something that is peaceful, loving, and a true connection.
Do Not Take Naps During The Day
The fifth thing is if you are not sleeping well and you already do this, do not take any naps during the day. Sometimes, I tell people to take a nap. If you’re not sleeping well, it may be that you’re getting enough sleep and your body isn’t tired at night. That can sometimes, for some people, interrupt the circadian rhythm that allows them to sleep peacefully in a cyclic manner. That’s not true for everyone. You determine for yourself whether a nap works well for you. If it does, great and if you’re not sure, then try it both ways.
Watch What’s Going On In Your Head As You’re Lying Awake
The sixth thing is to watch what’s going on in your head as you’re lying there awake. If you observe and notice what kind of thoughts are going on, you will know what’s happening in your subconscious mind. Is it about money? Is it about health? is about your relationship? Is it about your kids? Is it about what’s going on? That’s something that you are perhaps going to want to address. If you’re not clear about that, come to me and we can do a coaching session or something that will help you get clearer about that. You can relieve your busy, recycled mind from doing what’s not in your best interest for your sleep pattern.
These are some things that can be very helpful to you. I invite you to write these down and review them, especially if you’re not having a good night’s sleep. Please send these written materials to everyone and anyone you could possibly think of who might benefit from some of these little clues because they’re for all of us. I’m here for you. I want to do what it is that will allow you to experience a life that is more awesome than you could ever imagine. Until next time, feel a hug.
