Fall Asleep With Gratitude & Wake Up Full Of Energy - Mindful Cuddles Session 4

Updated: Mar 10, 2021

You may have heard the saying “start as you mean to go on,” but the way many of us start our days is with a yawn, a groan, and a sleepy snooze on our alarms, aching for just ten more minutes in bed. This is to say nothing of the anxiety and tossing and turning many experience before sleep. I used to be terrible in the mornings; I’d often oversleep and then be frantically rushing to get to the office on time. Shamefully, I’d also act grouchy to those I loved out of complete frustration at myself. And then, many years ago, I decided that beginning each day by feeling sluggish, sleepy and reluctant, followed by a wave of panic and stress at being late, really wasn’t working for me as a habit and decided I would change it.

You see, your sleep and wake cycles are actually very amenable to change. When we are little children, most of us woke up feeling bright and refreshed, and then when we’re adolescents, our circadian rhythms temporarily shifted, causing us to want to stay up later and sleep in longer. And then, in adulthood, we typically experienced new sleeping patterns again, depending on our daily routine. Remember that people have a siesta in some hot countries in the middle of the day and stay up later at night, whereas in other cultures, people go to bed shortly after it turns dark. And when we travel to a different time zone, we learn to get up and fall asleep at new times. This is to say, it’s entirely possible to change your habits and adopt a new way of being.

My name is Laura McGregor and I’m a Clinical Hypnotherapist at Nourish Victory. I see so many clients, friends and family not sleeping or coping well and it’s my greatest intention that you will enjoy this session designed to help you fall into a deep sleep and wake with increased energy. Your brain is able to learn when it’s time to wake up and when it’s time to sleep. The habit of feeling groggy and sleepy in the mornings, and feeling reluctant to start the day, is just that; a habit. And it’s a habit that this session is going to help you change. We all know people who wake up feeling bright and chirpy each morning, and what would it be like to give yourself that gift of starting your day well?

If you find this session valuable and you know anyone you think may help then I’d ask that you please share it with them. I drop new relaxation audio each Thursday at 9 pm PST. Be sure to subscribe to our mailing list to never miss a session. Visit for more information.

If your intention is to fall into a deep and sound sleep please be sure your alarm clock is set. Go ahead and place yourself in a comfortable position. Adjust your body so that you’re lying, with your legs and feet uncrossed and slightly apart, hands resting loosely in your lap.

And If I have your permission to guide you into a calm and relaxing state then just begin by taking some deep, comfortable breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth.

And of course, as always you have the power to Accept or Reject suggestions as you hear them. You can practice this in everyday life when you hear something on television or during regular everyday conversations. And of course, you have the power to accept or reject any suggestions that you hear tonight. Please use these two powerful gifts as often as possible. Doubling down on things that resonate with your values and integrity by internally thinking “I accept that suggestion” and quickly rejecting anything that doesn’t “I reject that suggestion”.

And as you begin to relax I’ll bring your awareness to any sounds, just everyday sounds around your house, people or dogs in the background, perhaps cars passing by in the neighbourhood and these sounds do not bother or disturb you, as a matter of fact, they help you relax even more comfortably. And of course, at any time should you need to awaken, you can do so quickly and effortlessly.

And Those moments before you actually drift off to sleep - as your mind wanders and images can flow in and out of your mind - your mind is preparing for rest - to enter the dream world where anything and everything that you desire is possible.

As you prepare to dream your subconscious mind is busy sorting out any problems you've had throughout the day. So I’d like you to imagine bundling up any worries - any cares - and uploading them all to a safe space in the universe. Use your powerful imagination to notice a beautiful box that is a sacred healing space for your concerns. Notice what colour your box is? Perhaps it’s a treasure chest or a safe, or perhaps an elegantly wrapped shoebox. Regardless go ahead and rest your concerns in your special box. Watch as these worries and cares get locked safely away.

And now it’s time to find a home for these concerns in the universe. You can imagine a giant inbox in the sky where you can magically make your box appear and fit perfectly. Or perhaps you’d like to become perfectly weightless and carry your box to the closest star, zooming up, up, up, up all the way up effortlessly carrying your box and dropping it off, then finding yourself instantly safely back tucked up in bed.

And you can now trust that if you ever need to access these again you will have even more clarity and feel even more supported to deal with them.
