Insomnia in Love...
Because I can't sleep til you're next to me..No I can't live without you no more ..Oh I stay up til you're next to me..Til this house feels like it did before..Feels like insomnia… –from Insomnia by Craig David
There are numerous things that cause insomnia. But for me, there are only two reasons why someone can’t sleep at night.
Either she is thinking about someone or someone is thinking about her…
Gosh I can’t sleep! I told my sister. After a whole day of work, still I couldn’t sleep. It’s twenty past twelve already and I tried all stuffs I could think of just to fall asleep. But not even a yawn came up.
And so I told her maybe it’s because there’s someone that comes in my mind more often lately. But I wanted to sleep, and I wanted to just continue whatever that was, into a dream. But my sister protested, “You can’t sleep that well either, if there’s a person in one corner of the world strongly thinks about you. Not until both of you decided to continue thinking about each other in your dream.”
And damn, she’s right.
Thoughts and Feelings Intertwine...
Do you know that neuroscientists have discovered special cells in the brain, called mirror neurons? These cells instinctively create brain-to-brain links between people. It’s like a human WiFi neurological system, which allows special connections between humans. This means that our brain waves, chemistry and feelings can literally mirror the brain waves, chemistry and feelings of those people who are in our thoughts. Like linking within our hearts and minds – the thoughts, feelings and energies of people we love and admire.
That’s a fascinating discovery! But of course it may not happen all the time. It may not apply to everyone, especially if there’s a broken link. A person with a brain that lacks an active mirror neuron system may find it difficult to establish emotional links with others.
I think it happens when you believe in the power of it. That’s when the emotions intertwine and come strongly alive.
