Around the change of season & always at the full moon phase I am liable to bouts of insomnia. There is nothing worse than lying there at 4am with your partner blissfully in the arms of sleep, knowing that you have appointments looming in a few hours. It is true that the darkest hours are before the dawn, it is then that the howling wolves & prowling dogs of my Tarot card take over my mind. The Moon card always throws up feelings of insecurity, where the past returns to haunt you, you are unsure of where the future lies. The Moon card connects to your subconscious & brings through things that you need to deal with before you can progress to the next phase of development. Slightly half asleep surreal dreams surround the Moon card, if this occurs to you, write them down immediately on waking as there is almost always some intuitive advice to be gleaned. Interestingly The Golden Dawn title for the Moon card is Ruler of Flux and Reflux, Child of the Sons of the Mighty… Another reason for many a sleepless night, reflux, particularly horrible if you are afflicted believe me !.
Insomnia – My solution
After struggling recently with a period of sleeplessness, having tried hot baths, warm milk, relaxation & eventually sleeping tablets that left me feeling like a zombie, my doctor surprised me with some suggestions that I am putting in to practice with great results. Hypnosis has worked a treat, though waking up entangled in the earbuds can be a little disconcerting, the real eye-opener & totally unexpected suggestion, Feng Shui. Being open to anything I consulted a Feng Shui friend on if they had any ideas as to how Feng Shui could improve my sleep & the first thing they said was ; ” Just how much rubbish is under your bed ?”. Well I was shocked, ( and slightly embarrassed ), under there were long obsolete printers, myriad computer bits, miles of cables, old bank letters & even stuff going back to when I was at college !.
As you know the primary element of Feng Shui is to enable the positive energy or ‘Chi’ to flow freely through your environment, bringing success, happiness & prosperity whilst carrying away negative forces. Needless to say the energy field under our bed was a complete Chi ‘trap’ & no wonder I was spending some uncomfortably sleepless nights !
It is a long process as, much to the distaste of my long suffering partner, I find it hard to let certain things go. Being an Aries sometimes in my life I have locked the door & moved away leaving everything behind !. However this time there are many things, including belongings of friends no longer with us, that I am finding harder to let go. We are awaiting a delivery of a storage bed & I am on my way to de-cluttering & guess what ?, last night I slept like a baby !
