Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep: Prepare Your Subconscious for Sleep

Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep: Prepare Your Subconscious for Sleep

The last five minutes of your day before you enter into your sleep state are the most important five minutes of your day. In this brief portion of your day, you are going to tell your subconscious mind how you feel and what wishes God (the universal one subconscious mind) is to fulfill upon awakening from your deep slumber.

Your subconscious mind cannot make a distinction between what you are feeling as a result of all that happens to you throughout your waking hours, or what you feel as a result of what you are imagining for yourself as having already transpired while you are in bed preparing to doze off to sleep.

How You Choose to Approach the Sleep State

You can use this time in one of two ways. Let me explain them both to you, and then you can decide which one you choose to adopt for yourself, keeping in mind that what you impress upon your subconscious mind is what the universal one subconscious mind will offer you in your waking hours.

1. Choosing to Review the Day’s Frustrations and Disappointments

As you lie in bed, you can use this time prior to entering your subconscious mind to review everything that transpired throughout the day that caused you to feel unhappy, dejected, frustrated, angry, and so on. You can think sad thoughts about all of the people who disappointed you, and review in your imagination (via inner dialogue with yourself) how unhappy all of that made you. You can spend these critical moments worrying about all of the things that didn’t work out the way you wanted them to, and projecting onto your subconscious mind evidence for things continuing to transpire in the same way that they always have.

In effect, you are imprinting your subconscious with I am unhappy, frustrated, pessimistic, afraid. Your subconscious mind, unable to distinguish between what you are telling it through your pre-sleep conditioning ritual and what is actually happening in your everyday world, says to you, “Okay, I’ve got it.”

Alas, you awaken befuddled by all of the things you don’t want that keep showing up in your life, not understanding that by assuming the feeling of what you don’t wish for and then going to sleep with those thoughts in your mind, you are programming your subconscious mind to take over. And this is why you so often fail to attract the ideal in your life.

There Is a Happier, Healthier and More Empowering Choice

You do have an alternative — those last five minutes of the day are your five minutes and yours alone. Consider the second option using your last waking moments before sleep, programming your subconscious mind in a new way.

2. Choosing to Assume the Feeling of the Wish Fulfilled

As you lie in bed, feeling drowsy and knowing that you are about to go to sleep, these last five minutes awake are your final pep talk to your subconscious mind. Here’s what Neville offers on this topic — it may be the most valuable information you’ve ever received:

The feeling which comes in response to the question “How would I feel were my wish realized?” is the feeling which should monopolize and immobilize your attention as you relax into sleep. You must be in the consciousness of being or having that which you want to be or to have before you drop off to sleep. (The Feeling is the Secret, Neville Goddard)

So this is what you must ask yourself as you get closer and closer to dropping off into the unconsciousness of sleep — If my wishes were realized how would it feel right here right now in my body? Stay with that thought until you begin to feel your body shift into what that feels like. This is not an empty exercise — it is a programming tool for reteaching your subconscious mind to act on what you intend to manifest, rather than on what you are worried, angry, or fearful about.

As you lie in bed, affirm: I am perfect health — then notice how that feels in your body. At first you will be calling upon your ego, which believes that it is separate from God or the universal source of all, and an inner voice will say, This is silly, I am sick, I am sore, I am dying, and I am only fooling myself. So simply dismiss these mind viruses and conditioned memes, since you are free to use these five minutes in any way that you choose.

Repeat a new I am that shifts you to the state of the realized wish. Repeatedly tell yourself that I am God in action, and immediately check in with your body to feel the shift from fear and anxiety to peace, love, and contentment. After a little practice, you will find that repeating I am in your mind begins to impact how you are feeling. Sensations of worry and pain slowly dissolve as you assume the feeling of the wish fulfilled, and it is at this point that you allow yourself to drop off to sleep.

Use these precious pre-sleep moments to assume the feeling in your body of whatever wishes you desire as already fulfilled. Refuse to go to sleep being upset or disturbed about anything, regardless of how momentous it may appear to be in your life.

You Can Choose Differently... at any moment

When you see a tendency toward negativity, simply pause and gently remind yourself in your sleepy state that you do not wish to enter your unconscious world with these feelings. Then assume that feeling in your body of your wish fulfilled. You want to enter your sleep with reminders to your subconscious to automatically fulfill your life-enhancing wishes.

On many occasions I’ve gone to bed feeling somewhat sick or concerned about what course my body will take with its diagnoses. I’ve faithfully practiced what I am writing about, and I’ve awakened symptom-free. The key is to keep checking in with my body until I can say in all honesty that I’m feeling that my desire is a present fact. Feelings are the tools that the subconscious automatic mind uses.
