Without regular sleep, the aging process is accelerated, our brains aren’t as sharp, we’re more likely to gain weight and our overall wellness can plunge. We all know how devastating it is to be awake night after night while the rest of the world slumbers. Insomnia is defined as difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep and unfortunately, the more you don’t sleep the more anxiety you have about it.What is at the root of your insomnia? Finding this information is an important step because it will determine what the best solution is.
Here are the top five causes of insomnia:
1. Stress and anxiety. Stress and the hormones it releases, cortisol and adrenaline, are major causes of insomnia. Cortisol naturally rises and falls in concert with the circadian rhythm, but a bad day at work, a difficult relationship, or even staring at an electronic screen for hours can cause unhealthy spikes in this “alert” hormone. Long-term stress is especially detrimental for sleep because cortisol rhythm is thrown off, keeping you up at night and leaving you exhausted when it’s time to get up in the morning.
2. Medications or medical conditions. Certain conditions are linked with insomnia and waking in the night, such as indigestion, arthritis, cancer, hyperthyroidism, lung disease, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Any condition that causes pain, difficulty breathing or frequent urination can keep you up at night. Some medications can also prohibit sleep, including various antidepressants, allergy treatments, corticosteroids and blood pressure medications. Many over-the-counter pain medications, decongestants and weight-loss pills contain caffeine or other stimulants, which can also block sleep.
Have an open mind and welcome the experience.
Don't go into thinking "This will never work"
If you come into a reading determined not to tell your reader anything with a closed, skeptical mindset, your reader will be hindered by that energy. A closed mind is the energetic equivalent of a locked door. It’s a waste of time and money to approach a reading this way.
Feedback is welcomed
You are not expected to tell ”the whole story” but the psychic connection will be stronger with a little encouragement such as, “that feels right”, “that makes sense”, “I might recognize them. Can I get a little more information?” If you are getting good information don’t try to stump the psychic with details like, ”What was our secret word?” It makes spirit feel unwelcome.
Identify your own agenda.
This is an important step! The thoughts, feelings, and desires that you currently have will be present in your energy field. With that said, a psychic will be able to pick up on these vibrations. If he/she knows that, they will be better able to sort through the information they receive. It’s crucial that you know what your hopes (and therefore unconscious expectations) are for the reading. You need to understand that a good psychic isn’t just going to tell you what you want to hear—but that doesn’t mean the information is wrong.
*As soon as you book your reading/purchase your ticket be thinking of who/what you want to hear. Have questions prepared when you DO hear from them! It can be overwhelming and sometimes people go blank.
Don’t play “test the psychic.” "Testing" the psychic does not "welcome" spirit in
Many new clients want some kind of proof that their psychic is “real.” This is legitimate but know that not all psychics are able to scan for existing facts. This doesn’t mean they don’t have real ability. The more time you take playing around, the less time you have to spend on issues that are important to you.
“Being under the influence” is not recommended.
Try not to be nervous, it's not scary.
