1. Fill out your Grateful Log before going to bed.
I consider this my top tip to sleep properly. It is very simple. All you need is a diary and a pen. Make sure that both the diary and the ink you choose are pleasing to your eyes.
I ask clients to write down a full page of things they are grateful for before going to bed. Clients who comply with this advice always report amazing gains in ability to fall asleep and stay asleep. Have you ever hurt your fingers and realized how important they are in your day? You become more grateful for them when they heal again. I ask clients to write down at least 10 things that they are grateful for. Every sentence should begin with either “I am grateful for..." or “Thank you for...” It is very calming for the mind and helps you look at the World in a positive light before falling asleep. It prevents the mind from racing all night, and enriches the quality of your sleep.
Furthermore, what you appreciate appreciates. For example, if you have financial worries and today you got a new client that gave you a down payment, say thank you for it and watch it multiply. The more wisdom I gain, the more I have realized that money is just a mind thing. You just simply need to tune in to the right radio station.
When you are grateful for money coming in, more money comes in. If you focus on lack, more lack will manifest.
By the way, you can be thankful in advance for things you want to manifest. For example, you need a better book keeper? You can write something like “I am grateful for the new honest, diligent accountant coming into my life to provide me with the best services possible to make the most out of my money and keep my financial affairs in perfect order.” I wrote this line two years ago after I had decided to let go my bookkeeper and within 3 days, Jo-Ann, my present bookkeeper finally had an opening for me and now provides me with the best service I longed for.
2. Answer three key questions before you to go bed.
This is a practice I learned from Life 101, a best seller from the early 90’s, a book I highly recommend. I do this single exercise with my daughter as I put her to bed. We both answer to each other these 3 questions:
What good to other people did you do today?
What good did other people do to me today?
What did I learn today?
Since she is only 8 years old, sometimes I have to bite my lips not to burst out laughing. She is quite candid and very expressive. We both find that we sleep much sounder when we complete this daily ritual. Sometimes, when we just play all day, we choose to learn something together like Spanish vocabulary or the history of unicorns. We both feel that we need to know more before going to bed each night.
After you have answered those three questions, your outlook on life is very positive and like attracts like. Again, more positive things happen in your life when you do this daily ritual.
