Falling back to sleep when we wake in the night can be difficult. Allow this meditation to help you let go of your thoughts and easily drift back to sleep.

I really need this one!
What a great idea to make a meditation for falling back to sleep! That is exactly my problem as a sleeper: not going to sleep, but staying asleep. I will use this often!

Sliding into Sleep
Something about her voice was just really, really helpful. It helped me to let go and before I knew it, I was felt my arms physically sliding off my body and I felt as though I could melt into the bed. Definitely relaxing

Falling back to sleep
Feeling sleepy again. To make my body sink and feel heavy on the bed were helpful.

Rest in the Process
Rushes of anxiety can really cause me to feel panic and impatience. It's sometimes very difficult to rest in the process of my destiny unfolding. This reminded me to breathe and let go, feel supported and held, and allow overstimulating thoughts to roll by like clouds.

Power of deep breathing
Deep breathing allows me to rest my mind and relieve the tension in my shoulders so I can fall asleep.

Letting go of sorrows
Things appear more dreadful shortly before bed when you're tired and easy and unimportant in the morning when you're awake and your mind is fresh.

Sleeping
Lately I have been even more restless with hot flashes at night and it has thrown me into a more anxious state. In turn it has encouraged me to delve back into meditation, yoga, and exercise to relieve years and years of anxiety due to over work, excessive pressure, and too many imposed and created by me expectations. For 2018 I am going to slow down, as a resolution to reestablish normalcy. Despite my physiological change, I do not have to be taken down the anxiety rode. Peace, quiet and calm are a beautiful thing, and if sleep happens I feel incredibly blessed and grateful.

Falling back to sleep
Close my eyes, get comfortable, focus on the breaths in and out. Thoughts of tomorrow should be acknowledged as things I’ll have that day to address. Arising thoughts are passing clouds; return focus to breathing. Into a deep state of relaxation; into a deep state of sleep. Lord help me remember this one at 3:45am next time.

4am
Right now it is 4am and I am just attempting to sleep. Why do I do this every night! Every night I go to bed later and later. I don't understand this self sabotaging behavior.

Feel relaxed
It’s great to take a few minutes to breathe. It’s a wonderful reminder not to borrow problems from the future.

Fatigue
Would be a good meditation for the middle of the night! Not so relevant in the middle of the day (free version of Aura), but definitely very relaxing 😌

Mind reeling
I am having a tough time relaxing, my mind is going into overtime. Just can't tune out the voices in my head, if I don't it will ruin my new relationship, and I dearly like this person very much.

Elusive sleep
I am really bad at calming my head. So I might as well get up and get work done until I get sleepy again, bc my brain won’t stop wandering. So let it wander to a productive place instead of making me crazy.

Sleepy Thought Clouds Drift Away
Tomorrow you will have time to deal with your worries or whatever is on your mind. It was hard for me to focus because I felt so much tension in my body, I tried to be still and let my thoughts go like clouds.

Clouds in the sky.
It was helpful and easy for me to put my thoughts into clouds and imagine them float by. It was easy for me to focus on that and I feel more relaxed and ready for bed.
