You Deserve A Good Night's Sleep


Everything is better with sleep. 

Through all my spiritual practices, the most important is sleep

Yes, I totally see sleep as a spiritual practice
And I'm talking good sleep. I mean really good sleep.

If I don't get my sleep, 
all my other spiritual practices go out the window. 
The foundation for a healthy, empowered, spiritual life is 
GOOD F'N SLEEP!

There are numerous ways to create good sleep. 

One practice that really helps me is a calming routine 
before going to bed. 

Create a Routine

When you are about 20 minutes out from heading to sleep, go into the bedroom.

1 - Light some incense or sage.

2 - Light a candle and say, "Thank you for this beautiful day. Thank you for the sleep that will restore my soul tonight."

3 - Make the bedroom comfortable, fluff your pillows, turn down the covers. Play some light meditative music if you'd like. Close the door.

4 - Now – go get ready for bed.

5 - When you re-enter the room, take a deep breath. It should be very calming with the candle, incense, and music. You are wooing yourself to sleep.

6 - Sometimes I take a moment, sit on the bed and rub shea butter or some kind of smelling good (lavender is good) lotion onto my feet. I give myself a foot massage and say, “Thank you feet for getting me where I need to go. I appreciate you.”

7 - Recite 3 things you are grateful for. (Practice gratitude.) Blow out the candle.

8 - Take a few deep breaths, clear your head. 

9 - Crawl into your comfy covers and let it all go. 

Sleep deeply and peacefully. 
Wake up feeling refreshed and energized!
