In the health store I’m presently working in, I’m finding an increasing number of people coming in with sleep problems. Many can’t fall asleep at all where others fall asleep fine but awaken in the middle of the night unable to fall back asleep. Although the store carries many combinations of sleep formulas, I need to bring awareness of understanding of sleep so everyone can best find their best sleep solutions. Enjoy gathering these few gems of knowledge.
Many take melatonin for a quick fix before bedtime, but the body can become dependent on it and stop its natural ability to create its own sleep brain chemistry, if taken for a long time. Some take magnesium to get the body to relax. Others take herbs to calm the nerves, like Valerian, Skullcap, Chamomile, Passionflower, California Poppy. Ashwagandha Root is a wonderful adaptogenic herb to balance the nervous system and help it handle stress more efficiently, thus making those herbs aforementioned to be more effective. Some take hormones like L-Theanine or 5HTP a precursor to Seratonin, while others take a neurotransmitter called GABA to reduce anxiety or mood disorders. I have also found Inositol a messenger for neurotransmitters in the brain to also assist some with insomnia.
All of creation displays a Yin and a Yang aspect. Our nervous system also displays its duality through the sympathetic and the parasympathetic. The sympathetic nervous system is our “fight or flight” response which creates a whole cascade of stress hormones like Cortisol and Adrenaline. Your normal sleep cycle depends on your body to shift into the parasympathetic nervous system. Its a lot like having the alternator in the car connected to the motor and the battery so that the battery can recharge while the car is running. Let’s face it, we are biologically chemical / electric organisms. If our heart stops, the doctor jump starts it with electricity a lot like the AMA jump starts our car battery when it’s dead. When we sleep connected to abundant energy in the Field, we awaken recharged and refreshed. Those that had little connection at night, awaken exhausted. The epidemic addiction to morning coffee, is a false feeling of energy through continued stimulation into the Sympathetic nervous system. A really quick way to get connected is to sleep grounded. check out www.earthing.com for awesome sleep mats that plug into the ground plug in any outlet. Research has shown the pattern of cortisol release in insomniacs completely normalizes when sleeping grounded, while connecting to the healing frequencies/rhythms of Mother Earth.
When you close your eyes in a dark room, as you relax and fall asleep, the light to your physical eyes turn off and the light to your pineal gland in the geometric center of your brain turns on. Many call this pinecone shaped organ, the pineal gland, our third eye. In fact, if you were to slice it open down the center, you would find only micro-clustered water with some calcite microcrystals.
The inside lining of this pinecone shaped gland contains rods and cones just like what is in our physical eyes. This is why we can imagine what our kitchen or bedroom looks like and we can see the picture of it in our mind even if our eyes are open somewhere else. The pineal gland has the highest demand for electricity of any organ in the body. As those calcite microcrystals become activated in a piezo-electric response to energy and cerebral spinal fluid flowing up the spinal column, orbitals of electricity revolve around the pineal gland and begin the release of Melatonin, which cause us to fall asleep, then DMT is released to send us on a trip. This is our experience of dreaming, as the soul moves through the gateway of the opened pineal gland. There is a reason why the Pope has a pinecone in the center of his staff and the Vatican has a Pinecone courtyard with the largest sculpture in the Vatican is of a pinecone. The pineal gland is the doorway between the material world and the world of spirit.
There are superconductive single atom minerals in our brain that are responsible for electrical transmission throughout the brain. They have been rediscovered by a man named Dave Hudson. He named them O.R.M.E. which stands for Orbitally Rearranged Monoatomic Elements. These elements bridge the Energy from the Field with our body. Without their active presence, energy transmission throughout the brain is limited.
