A Simple Way to Sleep like a Baby
My heart grows in love until it can embrace the whole world.— Ioannis Arvanitis
Eliminate the Negativity and the Fatigue of the Day
Years ago I learned a wonderful way to be able to fall asleep eliminating the negativity and the fatigue of the day. Since then, every time I follow this way, I end up sleeping calm and serene enjoying a night of sleep so refreshing, with the result that the next morning I wake up rested and happy, full of wonderful memories.
Each night, when I go to sleep, I die. And the next morning, when I wake up, I am reborn.— Mahatma Gandhi
I lie down on my back and put my hands on my chest, to feel the beat of my heart. I take a few deep, but relaxing breaths to fill with precious oxygen, and then I start to breathe calmly with a stable slow, pace. Then I concentrate my thought on my heart. I think of it as a bright vibrating object that emits light around it in the dark. I think this light is the love I send to the world.
After I create this picture, I feel that this pulsing, glowing heart is starting to grow. At first becomes big enough to fill my whole chest, then embraces my whole body, then embraces all the room and my wife sleeping beside me, grows to embrace the entire house and our children. In my thoughts, I watch my heart grows up calmly so that it increasingly embraces my neighborhood and its people, my city, my country, the whole planet and all the creatures, our solar system, and spreads without limits. So, my mind, my body, and my soul, all are filled with a magical and purifying light.
Usually, until my heart, to embrace the whole planet, I have already been asleep by sending love to the world, and I think there is no better way to surrender to the blessing of the world of dreams.
Nothing glows brighter than the heart awakened to the light of love that lives within it.— Guy Finley
Make It Work
Try to work it. You will see that even if you have gone through the most difficult day, everything will change, because your last attempt will be to offer love to the world that may tease you, bleed you or hurt you during this day. And love in a miraculous way can change not only the present and the future but also the past.
Try it even if you do not believe it will work. Try it and let your pulsating heart make you a believer. You have nothing to lose, but you may gain the most refreshing night's sleep you ever had!
My body rests and regenerates into the wonderful rhythm of love that my heart sings.— Ioannis Arvanitis
