Insomnia in Love...

Updated on August 5, 2010

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.

      There is a great deal of truth to this article, Blaise25. This is the basis for what we call the, "Empath phenomenon," which includes psychic healing. Keep this in mind throughout your sojourn here.

      That is a great hub :) someone somewhere in the world has you on their mind and vice versa.. perhaps on a subconscious level until you're both fully aware of it.

      thanks for your honest views. I think this phenomenon might occur to everyone—even if they haven’t been with each other for a long time.

      then again, cheers! :-)

      Yup nice article, cheers. I think I can relate to it and experienced surges for countless times now. But on the side, I'm not wondering why this phenomena occur; maybe its because when you're with someone for a very long time, I think chemistry will abide by itself and let everything come into place for both people.
