There are three powerful sleep mantras that will cure your insomnia problem and let you get a good night’s sleep. I’ll share all 3 sleep mantras in this article…
Today I’ve been continuing my mission to discover all the best cultural and spiritual techniques from around the world.
I’ve just finished writing my Ultimate Guide To Mantras, which will tell you everything you will ever need to know about mantras. And on this article I’d like to share some specific mantras to help you sleep.
If you’re interested in learning about mantras yourself, I recommend THESE BOOKS.
Today I’d like to share my favorite mantras for sleep.
The Ayurveda states that sleep is the “nursemaid to humanity”. Sleep enables the body to restore itself to its natural, energised, pure form.
But in this day and age sound sleep is not a given. A combination of stress and pressure is making it near impossible to catch enough Zzzzzs.
According to the World Health Organisation, approximately 40% of people will experience insomnia at some time in their life, while 10% are currently suffering from chronic insomnia.
Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised to find that sleeping pills are selling in record numbers. Today, 4% of people are taking sleeping medication.
But sleep medication is known to suppress the immune system, to cause digestion problems, to lower energy levels, and to cause many other side effects.
There are a lot of products to help you sleep.
The sleep industry is constantly pushing out new products to help you sleep.
- You can try using natural supplements for sleep. (I recommend THIS ONE)
- You can use tranquility pods, that relax you while you sleep.
- Air purifying Himalayan Salt Lamps produce a better air quality that is more conducive to sleep. (I recommend THIS ONE)
- Relaxation eye masks cut-out light to help you relax.
- And starry night projector lamps produce a more relaxing quality of light.
And of course, sleep is the best form of meditation (Dalai Lama quote).
However, one of my favorite solutions is using mantras.
I always recommend trying meditation for sleep as the first step.
After meditating, mantras are second.
In my experience, mantras make a big difference.
I personally used to suffer from chronic insomnia (mostly thanks to the lads above my room in University who insisted on playing Unreal Tournament at a billion decibels every night). It was only thanks to sleeping mantras that I was able to solve the problem and start getting sound sleep. Simply by practicing mantras before sleeping I was able to silence my mind and get quality sleep at night. I’m confident that these mantras will grant you a peaceful night sleep too.
How mantras help you sleep
The science of these mantras is based on Ayurvedism.
Ayurvedism states that insomnia is caused by imbalance of Vata dosha, the movement of energy inside the body. If you are suffering from an imbalance of Vata dosha you will feel cluttered, your mind full of noise.
To get good sleep you need to balance vata dosha.
To balance Vata dosha, Ayurvedic tradition advocates a lifestyle that is conducive to holistic health and wellbeing, incorporating nutrition, exercise, and relaxation.
The relaxation part of that trio should come from a combination of meditation and mantra recitation.
IMPORTANT: You can balance your vata dosha using THESE VATA TABLETS
Once you’ve tried the exercises above, continue with the following mantras
I am sharing a variety of powerful mantras. They come from different cultures and encompass different spiritualities.
First of all, let’s take a look at a few English mantras for good sleep and insomnia.
- “I am calm and still.”
- “The world is sleeping and all is well.”
- “I welcome sleep into myself.”
- “I am breathing deeply and calmly, becoming more and more relaxed with each breath.”
These are very basic mantras that work by the power of suggestion. These mantas will quiet your mind and help you to drift off.
But you may be looking for specific spiritual mantras, so let’s take a look on the next page.
Mantra for Good Sleep and curing insomnia # 1: Sa Ta Na Ma
Sa Ta Na Ma is a very powerful mantra.
Sa Ta Na Ma is one of the best sleep mantras. Recite this mantra before bed and you will get a good nights sleep.
This mantra has five sounds (it is a panj shabad mantra). It balances the brain’s hemispheres. Poor sleep and insomnia are frequently caused by a lack of balance in the chemicals of the brain. The Sa Ta Na Ma mantra promotes balance and returns us to our regular, healthy mental state.
Mantra for Good Sleep 2: Har Har Mukunday
Har Har Mukunday is another powerful mantra for sleep. This will relax your mind so you can get to sleep at night.
Often, insomnia is caused by a mental block. In order to overcome these blocks we need to enter a state of flow. This is where this mantra comes in. It removes fears and other kinds of mental blocks so we can relax and get to sleep.
Mantra for Good Sleep 3: Ang Sang Wahegaru
The mantra Ang Sang Wahegaru will balance your mind and body, helping you to get rest.
