My friend uses a “secret method” to wake up early in the morning. Just before going to sleep, she tells her pillow to wake her up at a particular time, visualizes the clock at that time and imagines waking up refreshed. After the short exercise, she lies down to sleep. She’s never been late so far. Her ‘technique’ is a simplistic example of what your subconscious mind can do for you. In a way that answers the question: “sleep programming does it work?
Psychotherapists have been using hypnosis for several decades with subliminal messages to improve people’s lifestyles. In a state of hypnosis, the analytical mind is subdued and the powerful subconscious takes over helping you change habits from the deepest levels. But, hypnosis sessions last barely an hour with a therapist and a self-hypnosis CD can be used only thrice a day.
Sleep programming is a step further. It works on the same premise of sending habit-altering messages to your subconscious but the process continues for almost eight hours that you are asleep.
Sleep programming uses mind-programming scripts, powerful music with binaural and monaural beats. The CD plays while you are asleep. The script puts you into a deep slumber and the verbal commands of the hypnotist direct your mind and thoughts to the inner-most recesses of your mind. The music with special brainwave technology is woven with subliminal messages. With sleep programming, you can, therefore, intensify the benefits of self-hypnosis. It shows different results for every individual. However, you must not use sleep programming CDs while driving or using machinery.
Sleep programming using a CD created by a trained therapist can work almost like magic helping you achieve weight loss, gain confidence, give up smoking, become more patient, etc. However, it supplements your current health program and cannot be a replacement for any treatment. Also, before you buy anything, ensure that the therapist has valid credentials.
