After a month of stay-at-home school, my daughter told me she’s having trouble sleeping.
“I only sleep a couple hours per night. I can’t fall asleep,” she sighed.
“How long has this been going on?” I asked.
“About a month.”
I started her on a routine that evening.
First, I taught her to rewind her mind and de-stress with a combination of Psycho-Cybernetics and Dao Zou, a Zen-like walking qi gong program I released 13 years ago, that dramatically shifts your vibration.
Second, as she followed the slow-motion movements, I showed her how to use mental imagery and deep breathing. She would visualize the number of each step she took while maintaining awareness of her breathing.
When she finished with the movement patterns, she stood still for a minute to feel the relaxing and calming waves washing over her. She no longer felt connected to the stress and strain of the world. Worry and other negative thoughts and emotions were gone.
And then she went to sleep. She slept the whole night.
We repeated the routine the next day, and the next, and the next.
And her sleep troubles ended.
Easily. Effortlessly. Emotion-free.
Dr. Maltz taught the importance of movement in the process of attaining peace of mind. Whether it was hitting a heavy bag or running several miles, we need physical ways to unwind and decompress the stresses of the day.
Maltz dubbed “peace of mind” the greatest port in the world, when he said, “With it you have everything. Without it, you have nothing.”
At the end of a long stress-filled day of homework and other mental activities, I’ve found Dao Zou to be the ultimate exercise to help you fall asleep fast, and dream in a way you’ve never dreamt before.
See it. Feel it. Be it.
