Techniques I use for Anxiety/Panic Part 4 (Get some Sleep)

Jan 30, 2008 - 2 comments

HERE IS AN AFFIRMATION YOU CAN SAY TO HELP YOU CALM DOWN AND GET SOME SLEEP:

Say each statement aloud - softly - to yourself, as you read it. Saying it aloud - to yourself - makes it most effective.

- I take good care of myself;

- I am taking care of myself now as I calm myself;

- I am calming myself;

- I am soothing myself;

- I am taking control.

- I am calming and soothing myself so that I may fall into a deep and satisfying sleep;

- I now allow myself to fall into a deep and satisfying sleep;

- I now release my upset;

- I now release my fear;

- I now release my panic;

- I am letting go of my fear and panic;

- I am taking control.

- As I take control, I let all fear and panic fly away;

- I am letting go of my tension;

- I am letting go of my fears;

- I can picture a little trap door on the top of my head;

- I open this little door on the top of my head - and let all fears and panic fly away from me;

- I am releasing all fear and panic from my system;

- As I release tension, fear and panic, I am feeling more and more relaxed;

- I am letting my muscles relax;

- All the muscles in my body are relaxing;

- I am feeling more and more relaxed and I am getting sleepy;

- I am relaxing and I am feeling more and more sleepy;

- I am giving myself permission to fall asleep;

- I am giving myself permission to drift into a restful sleep;

- I am giving myself permission to fall into a deep and satisfying sleep;

- As I relax I feel myself getting more and more sleepy;

- I feel peaceful,

- I feel peaceful and relaxed,

- I am feeling very peaceful, relaxed and sleepy;

- I am feeling very sleepy;

- I am ready to fall asleep now;

- I'm almost asleep...

- I'm happy to fall asleep.....

Now at this point, you can place yourself in a beautiful, peaceful, pleasurable environment - perhaps some place where you've been in the past, some place where you have happy memories - or maybe some place you can simply imagine - like a lush tropical island, a beautiful garden on a perfect spring day - or a fairytale castle - and see yourself in that lovely, peaceful environment - experiencing a sense of peace and enjoyment .... This concludes the Affirmation

These may not work for everyone, but if I can hep just one person then I feel better for it.

This is almost like EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques)...where you tap pressure points to tap away whatever it is that is bothering you, whether it be anxiety, depression, pain, etc. I dont know if you know about it, if not, if you want look it up on youtube.com..type in "EFT anxiety" in the search, and they have people demonstrating how your supposed to do it, it definately calms me down!
