Insomnia and the Unconscious Mind | Ep 9
Sep 28, 2023 Episode 9
Beth Kendall

This episode is ALL about the unconscious mind.

Sleep at its very core is SIMPLE. There is nothing you need to do or be.

But could we be missing an opportunity to understand insomnia from greater perspective?

Could insomnia itself be a conditioned fear that lives beneath our conscious awareness?

I certainly think so!

In this episode, I share 3 reasons WHY understanding the unconscious mind isn’t just valuable, but transformative.

1. It knows WAY more than the conscious mind does.

  • It’s where emotions are
  • It’s where the immune system resides
  • The nervous system is a representation of the unconscious mind
  • Beliefs and value systems live in the unconscious mind

2. It helps us better understand ourselves

  • Insomnia is a habit 
  • Anything we DO with repetition, THINK with repetition, or FEEL with repetition becomes habituated in the nervous system
  • Repetition creates an unconscious belief or thought like: “I’m not a good sleeper,” which eventually moves over to the unconscious mind (to clear up space in the conscious mind)
  • The story we tell ourselves over and over becomes the reality
  • We can get addicted to a belief,  ideology or story

3. It makes it easier to make changes in your life

  • We’re missing a greater intelligence to work with
  • Helps people tell new stories
  • Changing habits = changing the brain

If you’re curious about your own life experience and want to understand insomnia from an unconscious level, this episode is for you.
