Insomnia... zzz?

Much discussion of insomnia at Reiki practice session tonight.

Our first Reiki practice session. It's open to the public- mostly intended for our local clients and Reiki students. There were 8 of us tonight. Someone asked about insomnia.

People offered solutions, including: increase activity during the day, journal before bed, and listen to music. No one suggested Ambien, melatonin, or chamomile tea. Self-Reiki, of course.

One Reiki master offered this suggestion: a mix of Sufi breathing and visualization with self-Reiki. He said he starts with self-Reiki at the crown chakra, inhales and exhales through his mouth, and visualizes Earth. He breathes 8 times. He moves his hands down through the chakras, breathing and visualizing fire, water, and air.

He guided us through it and I nearly fell asleep.
