Snoring for Love
November 9, 2015
Nothing irritates a peaceful snorer more than a light sleeper who complains about it ‘waking ‘em up’! In reality, the complaints mainly come from the ‘fragile sleeper’. Good sleeping habits are crucial to good health! Sleeping soundly is a form of mediation. Sleeping ‘easily interrupted’ needs to be deepened. Many spend their whole life with sleeping disorders. Normal sleepers almost always find sleep to be a pleasant experience with occasional dreams mostly of little consequence and not remembered. Their sleep is similar to a meditation where the mind becomes more or less stilled. In a way, it is a like a reset to hopefully wake up fresh.
There are many odd sleeping manifestations that some people have. For example you could have Narcolepsy which is a neurological disorder caused by the brain’s inability to regulate sleep-wake cycles normally. If practice using meditations to deepen letting go of the mind doesn’t make the difference you would like, seek a sleep specialist and one who preferably uses natural suggestions to fix the disorder. Reasons for sleep problems could go from hereditary to psychological, in any case many sleep problems don’t just fix themselves, and may have infinite ramifications in everyday life from irritability, memory difficulties, insomnia, poor functioning, sexual problems, driving dangers, and infinite contributors to health problems, especially as you age.
Sleep problems are common in this age of stress, infinite distractions, expectations, pains, worries, low self love, and infinite fears. Sleeping deeply for 7 to 8 hours is sleeping well. If it is not deep you will feel hungry for sleep, starved – depth is the question.
When you are in a let go with deep self love, or with someone while both in a deep love, blissful, deep sleep usually results. One partner snoring will likely not be a factor. I had a partner several years ago who was as a Las Vegas show girl, not someone who you’d even think would be a snorer, but who snored as much as I’ve heard anyone snore. I thought it was rather cute actually, and we both easily slipped into a deep sleep with no sleep problems.
Over the years teaching meditations, I found the following as a good technique before going to sleep for those with problems sleeping. Each night before you go to sleep do a small technique, and that will help tremendously. Put the lights off, sit in your bed ready to sleep, but sit up for fifteen minutes. Close your eyes and then start any monotonous nonsense sound, for example: la, la, la – and wait for the mind to supply new sounds. The only thing to be remembered is those sounds or words should not be of any language that you know. Any language is ok that you don’t know, Tibetan, Chinese, Japanese.
It is a very, very old method coming from the Old Testament. It was called in those days glossolalia, and a few churches in America still use it. They call it “talking in tongues”. You start by saying “la, la, la,” and then anything that comes let it go on. Just for the first day you will feel it is a little difficult. Once it comes, you know the knack of it. Do it for 15 minutes, then just lie down and go to sleep. Within weeks you will experience a much deeper sleep, and wake up feeling fresh. Oh, and another’s snoring won’t bother you like before! Deep love too is always a solution!
