Sleep Meditation | Practice Sleep Meditation and Enjoy your Sleeping

Updated on June 20, 2013

Sleep meditation is a form of meditation that helps you to relax your mind and releases it of stress leading to a more peaceful and deep sleep. There are few directions to share here for people who are suffering the insomnia or cannot sleep well.+

1) MUDRA-HAND POSITION

Sit in an easy position keeping the back straight, hands in the lap, palms up, right hand resting on top of left while the thumbs touch and face forward.

2) EYES

Focus the eyes at the tip of the nose; there are several ways one can do this. One would be to bring your forefinger in front of your face and look at it. Keep looking at the forefinger and slowly bring the forefinger to the tip of the nose. To facilitate the concentration at the tip of the nose, do the following exercise. Bring the arms out to your sides parallel to the ground, palms up. Breathe for 1-3 minutes. This exercise balances the right and left hemispheres of the brain, which makes it easier to maintain the focus of the two eyes. Focusing the eye at the tip of the nose causes the optic nerves to cross at the third eye; it is easier to bring your mental focus to the third eye while the eyes are directed at the tip of the nose. Both the pineal and the pituitary glands and the area between them are stimulated by this eye posture, which helps in breaking old habits and creating new ones.

3) BREATHING AND MANTRA

Inhale 4 equal parts through the nose, dividing it into 4 sniffs. Mentally vibrate SA TA NA MA with the four parts of the inhaled breath. Hold the breath and mentally repeat 4 repetitions of SA TA NA MA. Making 16 counts SA TA NA MA SA TA NA MA SA TA NA MA SA TA NA MA. Then exhale in 2 equal strokes, mentally projecting WAHE GURU WAHE GURU means ecstasy. WAHE GURU is the result of integrating SAT NAM into the psyche. When we experience the Truth, we feel ecstasy.

4)TIME

Continue for 11, 15, 22, 31 or even 62 minutes. This meditation will often put you to sleep before the allotted time comes to an end.

      Thank you so much about the focusing on the nose meditation. could you suggest any book that focuses on what you've described so eloquently about the 3rd eye whils't focusing on the tip off the nose. Thank you , Andrew Richmond at andyrich99@yahoo.com
