I've had problems with sleep for the last two years. Sometimes I took a couple of Benadryl to sleep and once a guy let me have a Lunesta to try and sleep, I'm against taking medication, but thought I'd try it anyway. It didn't work and I still woke up without being able to go back to sleep.

I've tried meditating on my own and I couldn't settle down. Not getting enough sleep was really impacting my life; I would get tired and couldn't think through issues. I was frustrated and really short-tempered with myself. I got really irritated at 5:30 in the morning when I'd been up for two hours and couldn't go back to sleep, I just felt something was out of control. I always felt kind of cranky and really tired and it showed. At one point, I was trying to stick a bunch of folders in a brief case and they just kept getting hung up, so I ended up throwing the whole thing on the floor.

I heard about A New Day Hypnosis online. I'd done hypnosis before for stress and similar issues, so I thought I would try it again. I noticed that she had a good rating and I felt comfortable on the phone. I've noticed that my health in general is 100% better. It's been pretty easy. At first, I was consciously letting my instincts take over and allowed my tendencies to be overridden. I noticed that when I woke up in the middle of the night I could put myself back to sleep.

Being able to get eight hours of sleep instead of four has really improved things. I've had joint problems in the past and now my joints feel fine, which is pretty amazing. I can deal with stress from my job easily and I'm not getting distracted and frustrated. I also notice that I have a lot more energy. Now if I wake up, I'll go back to sleep. I've been sleeping pretty much through the night and I feel more confident.

After we took care of my sleeping problems, we did some work on my beliefs about abundance. I'd always been taught that I shouldn't expect to have wealth and part of what we worked on was feeling deserving of it. I'm starting to make a lot of money and because of the messages I'd been taught growing up, I was feeling guilty about it. I felt uncomfortable about taking a trip or getting a new car and now I've been able to let go of that. There has been a very basic, deep down change in my attitude and sense of deserving and confidence and I notice the way that it plays out in everything that I do.

I realize now that everything is going to work out and if it doesn't, I'll work it out. There's no sense in worrying about it in the middle of the night or trying to figure out what I'm going to do tomorrow when it's four in the morning.

I would recommend A New Day Hypnosis because it worked for me. The concept of hypnosis is valid and the person implementing it has to have something more than just training. Laura is very empathic and good at what she does. I'm confident about my abilities and I know that there's a unifying force out there that wants us to become the people we were created to be. The only way not to get there is to sabotage ourselves. Through hypnosis you can reconnect with your goals and remind yourself that it's all there for you. Believing in that and removing my obstacles has given me the confidence to know that this is permanent.
