Insomniac? Insomniac? Learn How to Get a Good Night's Sleep, Naturally Nearly half of all Americans suffer from insomnia. Worry, anxiety, stress, and major or minor health problems can all affect your quality of sleep. But you don't need to take sleeping pills -- which can actually make you feel more tired and groggy the next day -- to help you rest easy. You can heal your insomnia using natural therapies like aromatherapy (see our recipes below), homeopathy, and herbal remedies (try drinking a soothing chamomile or linden blossom herbal tea before bed). Of course if your insomnia lasts, you're advised to seek medical help and support. What is sleep and why is it important? In the dark, our pineal gland secretes the hormone called melatonin, which is responsible for inducing sleep. Sleep is a building process that restores the body's energy supplies that were depleted through the day's activities. It is a time to replenish mental energies, emotional energies, and spiritually connect with our higher self. But we're not just relaxing during our sleep. In fact we are quite active. We use this precious time not just to refuel, but also to evaluate, resolve, and release many of our issues. So you can see that when you're not getting sufficient sleep, you're like an eight-cylinder car that's running on four cylinders. How much sleep do we really need? The amount of sleep each person needs varies. Most people require around eight hours each night, but various factors can affect how much more or less you might need, including your weight, age, muscle mass, exercise during the day, healthy lifestyle, and of course stress! Aromatherapy Blends for Insomnia In a 10 ml bottle, pour the essential oils in the following recipes first and then add your organic vegetable oil. Calming a Nagging Mind: Enjoy a Quiet Night Do you feel agitated in your sleep? You subconsciously process your thoughts and emotions during your sleep, which is what makes it restless. Massage the blend below on your temples, forehead, and your nostrils (breathe it in easily) before going to bed: You Will Need: 7 drops basil 6 drops petitgrain 4 drops roman chamomile Ease Worries and Nervous Tension: Gain Calm and Peace Massage the blend on your temples, forehead, at your nostrils (breathe it in easily), before going to bed. You Will Need: 7 drops lavender 7 drops marjoram 4 drops roman chamomile Other Tips to Help Your Insomnia: Cut back on coffee, tea, and other sources of caffeine, especially in the evening. Avoid alcoholic drinks in the late evening. Alcohol may help sleep onset, but cause early morning wakefulness. Avoid eating large, late-evening meals and heavy, fatty foods before going to bed. Take a walk or perform mild exercise such as yoga or Qi Gung before going to bed. Don't use your bedroom as a place to work. Have a cup of warm milk before going to bed. Milk products contain an amino acid precursor that boosts serotonin in the brain. Take a warm (not hot) bath (not a shower) before going to bed. Avoid naps if they interfere with your normal sleep pattern. If unable to fall asleep within 20-30 minutes of lying down, get up and do something else until you feel sleepy. This way your body does not associate your bed with wakefulness. Exercise during the day. If you continue to suffer from insomnia or lack of sleep, seek medical advice Dreaming the Answers Procedure: On Halloween night take a letter from your partner which has a particularly strong statement of love in it. Fold the letter nine times, pin it together, and put it under your pillow. The dreams which you have will tell you the truth about your partner. If you dream of silver, gems, glass, castles or clear water, then your lover is true and genuine. However, if you dream of linen, flowers, wood or uniforms it unfortunately means that your chosen man is false and deceitful. •There is an Old Country superstition that on Halloween, a single lady should eat a salty sardine before bedtime. In theory, the future husband should appear in the dream, with a glass of water to quench her thirst. Dream Problem Solving Your dreams are "written" in your own private vocabulary; that's why their meaning is often unclear (and why dream books you buy at the corner newsstand won't explain your own visions). Moreover, the language of dreams is sensory and visual, whereas the language of daily life is verbal. You need to translate a dream much as you would a foreign language. Unfortunately, the same force s that make us disguise problems in our dreams are likely to hinder our recognizing them when we're awake. Even Freud had trouble with self-analysis. So an impartial listener - attained therapist - can help. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't explore your dreams alone or with a partner. People who keep dream journals say that over time, patterns often emerge. Try This: Program yourself to wake up after every REM period. Put a notebook and pen or tape recorder at your bedside. At bedtime, select a problem and sum it up with a question, such as "Should I take this new job?" Write it down and list possible solutions. Turn off the lights and reflect on these solutions. Stick with it until you drift off to sleep. When you wake up - during the night or in the morning - lie still. To jog your memory, pretend you're a detective interviewing an eyewitness. What's the last thing you remember? Before that? Going backward can help you more easily reconstruct a dream. Write down or tape record all that you remember. Do it before you shower and have breakfast. If you have trouble catching dreams, try sleeping late on weekends. The longest dreams occur in the last part of sleep and many of us cut sleep short on week nights. In her dream-therapy study, Cartwright asks participants to examine and try to change repetitive, troublesome dreams along seven dimensions: Time orientation: Do all your dreams take place in the past? Try positioning them in the present or future. Competence to affect the outcome: Try finding a positive way to resolve a dream. Self-blame: In your dreams, do you hold yourself responsible when things go wrong? Must you? Relation to former role: If your divorced, do you still dream of yourself as married? If you have lost your job, do you still see yourself at work? Consider alternatives. Motivation: Do you dream of being nurtured? Can you think of a way to take care of yourself? Mood: What would make a dream more pleasant? Dream roles: Do you like the part you play in your dreams? What role would you prefer? Lucid Dreaming Power Trips: Controlling Your Dreams A number of techniques facilitate lucid dreaming. One of the simplest is asking yourself many times during the day whether you are dreaming. Each time you ask the question, you should look for evidence proving you are not dreaming. The most reliable test: Read something, look away for a moment, and then read it again. If it reads the same way twice, it is unlikely that you are dreaming. After you have proved to yourself that you are not presently dreaming, visualize yourself doing what it is you'd like. Also, tell yourself that you want to recognize a nighttime dream the next time it occurs. The mechanism at work here is simple; it's much the same as picking up milk at the grocery store after reminding yourself to do so an hour before. At night people usually realize they are dreaming when they experience unusual or bizarre occurrences. For instance, if you find yourself flying without visible means of support, you should realize that this happens only in dreams and that you must therefore be dreaming. If you awaken from a dream in the middle of the night, it is very helpful to return to the dream immediately, in your imagination. Now envision yourself recognizing the dream as such. Tell yourself, "The next time I am dreaming, I want to remember to recognize that I am dreaming." If your intention is strong and clear enough, you may find yourself in a lucid dream when you return to sleep. Even if you're a frequent lucid dreamer, you may not be able to stop yourself from waking up in mid-dream. And even if your dreams do reach a satisfying end, you may not be able to focus them exactly as you please. During our years of research, however, we have found that spinning your dream body can sustain the period of sleep and give you greater dream control. In fact, many subjects at Stanford University have used the spinning technique as an effective means of staying in a lucid dream. The task outlined below will help you use spinning as a means of staying asleep and, more exciting, as a means of traveling to whatever dream world you desire. Before retiring, decide on a person, time, and place you would like to visit in your lucid dream. The target person and place can be either real or imaginary, past, present, or future. Write down and memorize your target person and place, then visualize yourself visiting your target and firmly resolve to do so in a dream that night. To gain lucidity, repeat the phrase describing your target in your dream, and spin your whole dream body in a standing position with your arms outstretched. You can pirouette or spin like a top, as long as you vividly feel your body in motion. The same spinning technique will help when, in the middle of a lucid dream, you feel the dream imagery beginning to fade. To avoid waking up, spin as you repeat your target phrase again and again. With practice, you'll return to your target person, time, and place. When spinning, try to notice whether you're moving in a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction. Spell To Dream Of The Future Dream divination is the power to see the future and enhance clairvoyance through dreaming. To foresee an event in the future through a dream, try this powerful dream ritual. Decide what subject your prophetic/psychic dream will be about: Does it involve you, or someone else? What is the subject you need information on? (Money, love, etc.) How far or near in the future do you wish to see? Do you have a specific question to ask, or just a general topic? How do you want the question answered- by a guide, symbols, emotions, etc.? Once you are sure you know what exactly the prophetic dream should be able, you can gather your items and prepare your working. Lay out a square of pale blue cloth. In the middle, places a mixture of ash leaves, bay leaves, cinquefoil, heliotrope, holly, jasmine flowers, marigold flowers, mimosa, mugwort, onion, and/or yarrow (however many you can find). Bring the corners towards the middle and tie it all together like a small bag with a string, ribbon, or piece of yarn. Then, on a white piece of paper, briefly explain what you need to see in the dream, using the guideline above to tell the main ideas/questions you need prophecies about. Place the herbal bag and the note beneath your pillow, and make sure you record your dream in a notebook or journal as soon as you awake, so you do not forget it. Use what you learn to prepare you for the future. Spell To Have Dreams Of The Deceased You Will Need: 1 white candle 1 picture of the deceased 1 pentagram Procedure: Light the white candle and stare at the flame for a few minutes. Then put the picture at eye level and say: You are gone forever, But through this spell, My dreams to which you will come. Place the picture under your pillow. Let the candle burn to a stub, blow it out, and place it under your pillow also. Sleep with them under your pillow for three nights to receive the dream you want. Spell To Give Someone A Dream You Will Need: 1 dish of earth a cup or cauldron of water 1 candle Procedure: (check color correspondences for whatever kind of dream you will be sending) and some incense (any kind, this is just to symbolize air). If you have an altar it should go in the middle of wherever you are placing these objects. Put the earth to the North the incense to the East the fire to the South and the water to the West. Then sit in the middle by your altar or just in the middle. Visualize the dream you wish to give and after you're done visualizing Say: Lord and Lady I ask of thee Give me the ability to send forth this dream Across the Earth or water's bound Whether he/she be in the sky or on the ground By the powers of fire to let it shine bright By the powers of earth and air to send it tonight By the powers of water to sweep within dream's door And by the powers of 3 shall _____ remember it evermore Sleep in the knowledge the dream will be projected to the person you have visualized. Be sure to go through every detail of what you wish to send. Dream Magick If you find you need a little help in lucid dreaming, or you want to learn the answer to a specific problem, this charm bag is a great tool. It soothes the waking mind and helps your sleeping mind to focus. Make or buy a small draw-string bag about 1-2 inches deep. You Will Need: A pinch or two of... peppermint cinnamon lemon verbena marigold vervain hops Procedure: During the full moon, put the bag together, then consecrate and charge it. Make certain it is tied tightly. Before sleep each night, rub the bag over your third eye (center of forehead) and concentrate on the question, problem or situation. Then place the bag under your pillow. Continue to concentrate on the situation as you drift off. When you wake, jot down whatever you remember in your dream journal. Your question should be answered within the first few nights. Remember dreams can be symbolic or literal. This pouch can also help increase your skill at lucid dreaming, by keeping your mind focused on the fact that you are just dreaming. Dreaming in the Garden Dreams can be merely entertaining or intense and prophetic. Many natural aids to dreaming can be found in the garden! If you want peaceful dreams that are relaxing, place a vase of jasmine by your bed. If you are having nightmares and wish them stopped, place morning glories in the vase instead. If you need to learn something in a dream, place a bay leaf under your pillow and ask for the knowledge. If you just want nice dreams, use a sachet of lavender. If you want to send a psychic dream to a loved one, blow the seeds off the top of a dandelion in his or her direction and project your wish, then go right to sleep. If you want your dreams to come true, you can do one of two spells: At midnight on a Friday, in silence, gather nine small non-spiny holly leaves and wrap them in a cloth. Place them under your pillow, make your wish, and go to sleep. Your dreams will come true. Another ancient spell is to scatter marigold flowers under your bed, make your wish. Say: Wish I want and wish I may Come to me through dream so fair Come by night and come by day Come, thou wish, and ride thee here. Gypsies and Dreaming Gypsies hold much stock in dreams and are renowned dream interpreters. Although Tunisian and Algerian Romanies are the recognized experts in this field, English Gypsies certainly have been practicing dream interpretation for many generations. In common with all Gypsies, the English Travelers maintain that through dreams they are being given secret knowledge that could affect their future, positively or negatively. They believe dreams come from the spirits of their ancestors. Gypsies are actually very observant and, in some ways, very prosaic. The first thing a knowledgeable Romani will do when asked about the significance of a particular dream is to inquire about the person's general health and eating habits. Most of us, Gypsies included, are aware that a lot of dreaming is simply the result of excesses in eating and/or drinking. Charles Bowness, in Romany Magic, says: "Apart from those dreams brought on by stomachic derangement there are also those occasioned by some bodily excitation due to a previous pleasant or unpleasant experience. Another cause is tension owing to brooding over some problem or fear of a future event. To categorize further, dreams of terror can be due to a slight and temporary disorder of the heart. Similarly, a defect in the lungs can be responsible for a dream of bloodshed. To experience some enormous difficulty in a dream, such as hacking a way through a jungle, or trying to penetrate a wall indicates disorder of the liver. Dreaming of sharp pains, knife stabs in the back and the like, is because of kidney disorder. If a dream contains some element of hypnotic regularity such as the swinging of a pendulum, then there may well be a tendency to anaemia." It is obvious that one cannot simply take any dream and say, "Oh, yes. That means such-and-such." The question is, then, which dreams can be interpreted? The Gypsies say any dream that is especially vivid; one that stays with you after you wake. Additionally, it should be one that is dreamed when you are in good health and have not overindulged the night before. Make Someone Dream of You You Will Need: pen and paper square of fabric, batting lavender rosemary Procedure: Determine precisely what it is you want that someone to hear, or perhaps feel. Write down your wish on a piece of paper in a simple form. Make a dream pillow using a small square of fabric and a little batting. Throw in a pinch of lavender and rosemary. Put in the piece of paper last, then sew up the end. Put the dream pillow on your altar. Do an altar devotion to center yourself, then create sacred space. Center yourself, then hold your hands over the dream pillow. Say: Holy Mother, Goddess Divine, I stand before your sacred shrine. This person won't listen or hear My words tickle at deafened ear. Holy Mother, Goddess Divine, Send a dream, awaken the mind. Through his/her vision he/she lives The nightmare/passion/lesson he/she so freely gives.

Dream of One Who Has Passed Through the Veil You Will Need: 1 white candle A picture of the deceased A pentagram Lavender in a natural bag (cotton, muslin) Procedure: Light the white candle and stare at the flame for a few minutes. Then put the picture at eye level Say: You have passed through the veil; But with this spell, I will dream of you soon, This I foretell. Procedure: Place the picture under your pillow. Let the candle burn to a stub, extinguish & place it in the bag of Lavender. Sleep with these items under your pillow for three nights to receive the dream you want.
