How Chakra Balancing Helps You Sleep Better

How Chakra Balancing Helps You Sleep Better

 

Sleep is one of the basic necessities of life though it tends to get lighter as you age. As toddlers, you can sleep 14 to 16 hours straight, wake up fresh and active, play around a little, and go back to sleep in 8 hours thinking it’s been a long day.

As you grow older, your sleep hours decline from 16 hours a day to 8 hours a day. The average well-rested teenage and young adult gets a little over 8 hours of sleep a day.

How Sleep Declines

As kids and teenagers, your minds, hearts, and souls are pure. There’s nothing to worry about whether it’s a worldly affair or spiritual blockage. They may be worried about friendships but nothing that has a far-reaching impact on life. They play heartily and sleep well, knowing there’s somebody looking after them.

But as you grow up, you begin hoarding worries – either intentionally or unintentionally. You worry about graduating, building a career, making ends meet, and keeping the love of your life happy. You juggle so many worldly responsibilities and they take up so much of your time that you slowly begin to lose touch with yourself. This is one theory that explains the loss of sleep, anxiety, and insomnia that impacts the overall quality of life. Some people refer to it as the quarter-life or the midlife crisis. Things will get out of hands during this period. The key is finding your balance when everything goes off.


Finding the Middle Way

Chakra balancing doesn’t work overnight. Anybody who’s practiced it knows it takes a long time just to get hold of the idea. Chakra balancing is doable albeit a little complex. It takes discipline and consistency to get the results you’re hoping for.

How do imbalanced chakras actually feel?  When your chakra is blocked or imbalanced, you’ll feel restless, particularly during the night time. It’s your body telling you to get out of bed and do something about it. Your mind will refuse to shut down and you’ll find yourself lying wide awake in bed, thinking about all that you did and all that you could’ve done differently.

When your alarm clock goes off, you’d feel as though you had just slept. Truth is, you don’t truly understand when and if you slept at all. You’ll feel drained, irritated, aggressive, and most of all, unfulfilled. Unhappiness seems to follow you everywhere. You worry about worrying so much. Spiritually, you feel lost. Not just this, you lack the motivation to turn things around in your favor. The only thing that keeps you going through days and nights is a bunch of responsibilities that define your life. If this sounds like something that happens to you more often than once in a blue moon, you need to realize there’s a problem. “Healthy” people don’t lose sleep over nothing.


Sleep Like A Baby

Once you’ve realized there’s a problem, the next step is getting rid of it. And I’ve collected the best advice from all top chakra experts including mindbodygreen.com, roohi.com, chopra.com, and chakras.info to give you this list. These lifehacks will work, that I can assure you. Here’s what you need to do to get your sleep patterns right.

  1. Turn it off. Your laptops, tablets, smartphones, beepers, televisions, telephones, and everything else that connects you to the world. In particular, turn off your Wi-Fi device. Rid your house of all these signals and artificial energy. You’ll feel a big difference the moment you do.
  2. Dim the lights. Unless you’ve trained your body otherwise, your body contemplates this activity as a signal that it is time to sleep. It’s like a natural body mechanism. About an hour or a half before your bed time, dim the lights around the house. It’ll help you ease your way to sleep.
  3. Meditate. Even 15 minutes would do. Night is the ideal time for this because it’s peaceful and there’s no urgency blocking your aura. Sit on the floor with your hands beside you. Breathe deeply. Imagine you are exhaling all your problems and inhaling all the goodness that this world has to offer. Even 15 minutes of meditation will help you cleanse your body and mind, paving the way for a healthy sleep.
  4. Consume light meals. If you’re eating something that’s too spicy, too oily, too creamy or too heavy, your tummy ache will keep you up at night. Eat a light meal before bed. Top it off with some warm milk or yoghurt. The happier your stomach is, the better you’ll sleep.
  5. Light it up. If you’re not particularly allergic to incense, light up a few in your bedroom before you sleep. The smell can also work wonders in getting you to sleep. Same is the case with essential oils. A brief session of aromatherapy can help ease you into bed.
  6. Mentally scan your body. Analyze the tension in your body parts and release them before settling into bed. In yoga, it is the equivalent of the dead body pose. Visualize it with your mind’s eye. You won’t just sleep better, you’ll wake up relaxed too.

Hope this helps. Let me know if this worked for you or didn’t. I’ve experienced phenomenal benefit following these specific guidelines. There’s a lot of other things you can do to improve sleep. These I’ve tried and tested and personally endorse on all levels.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for
    only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
