Twinkling Starlight, Go Back To Sleep!
We have another new mindfulness sessions we’re releasing on Clarity! We are delighted to bring you the beautiful voice of Nina Rashid who has created the twinkling starlight session for us – You can find her session in the Sleep Pack on our clarity app.
It happens to all of us, we have the best intentions of getting a good night’s sleep, keep the room cool and dark, minimise electronic devices, avoid caffeine late at night, etc.
Sometimes falling asleep is easy, especially when physically tired, the body just wants to rest, eyes are droopy and off to sleepland we go….zzzzzz
It is waking up in the middle of the night for no obvious reason and not being able to go back to sleep that may be a problem, it is simply called insomnia. The physical body and the mind drifted off easily into sleep initially, but now the mind is busy looking at the clock, maybe thoughts racing through the mind about the next day, week?
We wake up during the night regularly due to sleep cycles, usually 90 minute cycles to 2 hours. Most probably this goes unnoticed as we just roll over, move around or very briefly open our eyes, sometimes not even aware of it. It is actually not the waking up that is a problem but going back to sleep is.
There could be several reasons, stress, depression, too much alcohol or a very late meal, or just too many thoughts racing around. We very often worry about the future and ponder on the past!
Being mindful of the here and now, our only moment is where we should try to be.
Doing a mindful meditation may help to stay here, in the present, right now, nowhere else to be , nothing to do, no one to speak to, just simply delightful sensation of being here.

The same force that quickens you in the morning towards growth, fullness to action and light
Is the same force that lulls you to sleep, to dreams, to greater darkness.”
