As a meditation teacher one of the questions I am asked more than any other is “How can I cure insomnia with meditation.”
Perhaps it’s not surprising that I am asked this question so frequently. Forty-Eight percent of people are reported to suffer from occassional insomnia and 22% suffer from insomnia every night. That’s a staggering statistic.
Thankfully, there are powerful mantras for good sleep and mantras for curing insomnia.
I will share these mantras for sleep and insomnia in just a moment, but first I’d like to share a story of my friend Emma.
How Emma Cured Her Insomnia with Mantra Meditation
Emma suffered from insomnia for years. Every single night of the week she struggles with insomnia, and to a devastating effect. It left her fatigued, demotivated and depressed.
She spoke to the doctor about ways to cure insomnia and the doctor prescribed medication for it. Emma took the medication and it worked. She was able to get to sleep consistently.
I was somewhat surprised when Emma came to me and said, “I’m not happy with my pills.”
Even though she was sleeping, was happy to be taking medication. “It’s not healthy. I should be able to get to sleep naturally. I need an alternative solution.”
When I suggested using mantra meditation Emma was enthusiastic. She spoke to her doctor about going off the pills, which she did.
The first time I taught Emma the mantra meditations for sleep and insomnia, they didn’t work. This didn’t surprise me. She had a very deep-seeded belief that she could not get to sleep. She truly believed that without medication she couldn’t sleep. If she was to sleep we first needed to change this belief. We did this using a mindfulness meditation for depression. This allowed Emma to overcome her negative belief that she could not sleep.
Having practised the mindfulness meditation it was time to focus on specific mantra meditations for sleep.
The mantras which we used were Sa Ta Na Ma, Har Har Mukunday and Ang Sang Warhegaru. She practiced these meditation for twenty minutes before bed.
The first night she didn’t actually sleep, but she said she “felt even better than if I had slept.” Meditation is actually more effective than sleep, as was recently proved in a scientific experiment on insomnia. Emma was alert and awake the next day, but she still wanted to sleep.
For four days Emma practised the mantra meditation. It was on the fifth day that they worked. She was ecstatic. “I’ve finally done it!” she said, gleaming with joy. She still uses the same mantras today. On the next page I’ll teach you how to use those same mantras.
Today’s meditation quote. . .When thoughts subside and we sit together in silence, all people become one. It is only thought and the delusion of the "Self" that leads man to think he is separate. Silence the mind, silence the ego, and live as one with people and nature. ---- P.m Harrison, author of How To Meditate Properly, Anytime, Anywhere
