Ever have those nights where your head keeps spinning, your thoughts betray you and your anxiety is out of control? You toss and turn with fixation on all the negative things that have happened today?
“Sleep deprivation is a major cause of brain health changes”
I see all to commonly in our office. Insomnia is a growing problem as our lives become growingly full of excessive levels of stimulation.
As our brains become more excited through stimulation from technology, noise, work environments and artificial light it’s becoming harder and harder for us to turn off.
The impact this is having on human brain health is becoming significant with conditions such as insomnia, anxiety and other neurological problems are becoming increasingly more common throughout society.
Whilst finding the cause of dysfunction is always the best approach, I want to share with you a little technique we use in our office to help calm people down very quickly. It works great for many people.
Incorporating a few simple steps into your life can often control this stimulation coming us down and allowing us to properly sleep at night.
But for now, I want to show you an amazing procedure I use with clients that you can use in the evening to help turn your brain off and get you to sleep.
It’s a simple technique that I believe was first discussed by John Diamond MD. The procedure is said to resync specific areas of the brain. I’m not sure this is actually accurate and there is no research on it that I’m aware of, but I have seen so many people benefit from it over the years I want you to have it.
Remember the colours of the rainbow? Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Indigo Violet. Ever wondered why they are always in this order?
When fine amounts of water are run through light, they separate the frequencies of light allowing each frequency to be seen. The colours will always separate in the same way: Red being the lowest frequency Violet being the highest frequency.
If we gaze at each of the colours in this order some amazing things happen. People seem to relax, and often fall asleep much easier. It is believed that the colours stimulate sequential areas of the brain resulting in a reboot like event.
Whether this is true or not is unsure, but either way I’ve seen many people benefit and retake control of their sleep with this simple step.
It’s a bit tough to have all these colours handy at any given time. So, this is how you use them:
- Imagine you’re at the bottom of a set of stairs
- Then picture the first stair is red. Once you can see the red stair clearly, step onto it.
- Then picture an orange stair. Again, once you can see the red stair clearly, step onto it.
- Repeat the process until you get through all the colours
It can often take 30 to 60 seconds for people to clearly visualize each of the colours. If it takes longer, that’s ok. Take your time and don’t force it.
It’s a great little trick that we’ve seen help so many people over the years. It’s simple, quick and doesn’t require you to use any equipment or supplements.
