My mother after reading Sasha first book has went from 30 years of bad sleep spending most of her night reading to sleeping from 11pm to 0630am every night now, it took her 4 weeks to turn the 30 year habit around!
I agree with the commentator in the book who calls Sasha and angel! Not many people after suffering what Sasha went through for 15 years would still want to actively engage with something that wreaked havoc on her life for so long! So thank you Sasha both from me who is still recovering and from my mother 30 years of bad sleep gone in 4 weeks! Thank you!
There is also a section on setbacks and what happens when you go through a bad patch again. This was very reassuring to know that this is perfectly normal. It is how you react to these bad nights that will make all the difference.
Sasha's writes in a way that really speaks to you. There's something about the way a person writes when they have suffered what you have, that speaks to you on a different level and there is true understanding.
I would definetly recommend this book, in fact her advice applies not just to sleep but is also a helpful attitude to life in general.
The original teaching centres around the concept that you wont sleep until you stop worrying about it. Im sure every imsomniac knows this already. However it doesnt contain anything more than to just 'relax'.
If you suffer with pain, a psychiatric issue or menapausal insomnia, then this isnt for you. This is a peptalk book only.
I found Sasha's first book, The Effortless Sleep Method, extremely insightful and very helpful. I read it at a time when I was actually sleeping better, after coming to some of the realizations that she describes in the book, myself. I was going through a massive process of self-realization and understanding that your thoughts totally direct your mindset, attitude and, essentially, your life. And Sasha not only reaffirmed these ideas but further strengthened them. And this new book takes the idea even further.
What she stresses over and over is that it is YOUR hands to change your sleep and no one else can control it for you. And I love the way she explains how insomnia is a fabricated concept and that it does not actually exist. What does exist though, is your attitude towards sleep, and once you control that, you'll be in a totally different place.
While this second book doesn't offer so much NEW information (especially the first half). what it does do is strengthen your resolve in changing your attitudes and makes you feel validated for finding the struggle hard. Sasha encourages you to keep at it and she answers every single question you may have, even if you ask the same thing over and over again, in multiple ways! Although I was sleeping better at the time of the first book, soon after I had an awful AWFUL relapse and there were times that I wasn't sleeping for whole nights in a row.Read more ›
