We’ve all been there – thoughts racing through your head and struggling to sleep, only to be met with horrible dreams when you finally drop off. If this is something that happens over and over again, it can feel like there’s no hope – it’s as if you’re never going to experience a peaceful night of rest again.
But don’t lose faith. There are plenty of things you can do to help yourself overcome this tricky problem – and remember, you’re not alone. Not only have many other people experienced a loss of control over their own sleep, but there are plenty of experts to guide you through.
Why it’s so important to get a good night’s sleep
With some people claiming to need only 3-4 hours’ sleep a night and others advising 8 or more, it’s difficult to know what’s best. Ultimately it’s finding the right balance for you – and remember it’s important to get a good night’s sleep for the following reasons:
- Vital for your health and well-being
- To help improve memory
- For sharpening your attention
- Helps with inflammation
- Lowers stress
- Helps you to maintain a healthy weight
- Fuels your creativity
- Assists clearer thinking
5 ways Theta Healing can help you improve your sleep and control your dreams
In Theta Healing, the subconscious mind is accessed using a theta brainwave state. It is a meditative process which feels similar to prolonged daydreaming, where the mind is relaxed, but aware at the same time.
Entering these states makes us conducive to creative change – allowing Theta Healing practitioners, with permission, to alter self-limiting beliefs. Further benefits of the Theta brainwave include:
- A reduction in mental fatigue
- Increased sense of peace and stability
- Heightened intuition
- Sense of spiritual connection
- Healing potentials
- Improves symptoms of anxiety and stress
With such benefits, it isn’t hard to see how Theta Healing could help you improve the quality of sleep. Not only will it calm the chatter of your mind, making it easier to fall asleep, but it will reduce your overall feeling of tiredness by increasing your sense of peace.
Accessing the theta brainwave can allow your body to recover physically and mentally from the stresses of the day. Think of it as a rejuvenating boost to your mind.
In order to harness this potential, we’ve broken it down into five key ways you can use Theta Healing and the theta brainwave to control your dreams and improve sleep:
1. Change those negative thoughts preventing you drifting off
A lot of the time, we can’t easily drift off to sleep because our minds are occupied by worries. Obsessing over negative beliefs prevents us from relaxing and being able to fall asleep. But what if those thoughts weren’t there?
With Theta Healing, you can deal with thoughts before they turn into a spiral of negativity. After all, your subconscious mind is always working on the information you send it. By sending positive signals, you can control your own reality and maximise the chances of your life being calm and enjoyable.
A Theta Healing practitioner can help identify those beliefs holding you back and create happiness, love, wellness and prosperity in your life. Eliminating those worries will also help you sleep better.
2. Perform energetic space clearing
Your home is an extension of you – so even if you’re treating yourself well, your surroundings could be having a negative impact on your sleep. Everything carries with it a particular vibration, energetic charge, or imprint of a memory and associated emotions.
Consider your home and all the experiences you’ve had in that space. If there’s been conflict or stress, it could still be occupying that space long after the actual event is over. It may be causing you unexpected bad moods and stress, whilst preventing you from sleeping.
Instead, you can imprint your home with positive energy. Watch this video from Anna Kitney explaining how to perform energetic space clearing.
3. Deal with the opinions of others
It is not only the way we talk to ourselves, but the way we allow the opinions of others to affect us, that can impact our reality. If you allow other people’s thoughts to dictate your mood, you’re essentially giving away the control you have over your life.
It’s not healthy. When we dwell on grudges, our blood pressure and heart rates spike and we compromise our immune systems. On the other hand, forgiveness allows us to let go of the toxicity of negative emotions. It’s choosing to heal and move on.
However, letting something hurtful go isn’t easy. In order to achieve the greater sense of peace that’s achieved by letting go of grievances, we must realise that forgiving someone is not the same as condoning their behaviour.
4. Cleanse your body
For those really struggling with sleep, it could be worth detoxing. Unfortunately, parasites are more common than most people realise and can be inhaled, ingested with contaminated water and food, as well as from handling raw fish or meat. Pets or insects that come into contact with your skin can cause problems too.
Responsible for stealing our vitamins, minerals, releasing toxins and causing dysbiosis in your gut (lack of good bacteria), parasites can move throughout the body. They can affect you physically and mentally. You can avoid parasites by following these top tips:
- Avoiding foods such as pork, prawns and crab
- Soaking and rinsing all vegetables
- Freezing meats for three weeks before consumption
- Thorough hand washing
- Avoiding untreated water
- Doing a parasitic detox at least once a year, ideally in spring
- Alkalising your diet

5. Connect to your higher self
Knowing and understanding your purpose can have numerous benefits, including a sense of control and improved rest. Any doubt, confusion and chaos in your life will be replaced when you connect with your divine purpose.
By working with the higher self, you’ll learn how to silence the mind, so that you can hear your heart. Immersion in this moment of peace will bring you into alignment with your purpose. You’ll no longer be making decisions from fear, panic or confusion. Instead, you will be making choices from a place of being centred, calm and in alignment with yourself.
You can achieve this feeling by meditating – start today by learning how to find your purpose.
