‘ of sleep, it’s no wonder then that so many people struggle with
sleep in so many ways.
The first secret in getting a restful sleep is to change your
paradigm or perspective of sleep. Sleep is not about recharging
your batteries. Sleep is about the natural cycle of birth and death
contained within each day. This sounds a bit heavy or scary, but
in reality, it’s a life changing and empowering perspective about
our sleep cycle.
Like the flower in DH Lawrence’s  poem, each night we go
into the ‘oblivion’ of death and awaken reborn and newly
created.  This is not a literal or physical death. This experience
of death in sleep is what is called deep sleep. That part of the
night which we have no memory of, but we know we have gone
into that deep dark place where we cease to ‘be.’ When we go to
this place we don’t feel scared or worried or stressed. It’s a kind
of soft darkness in which we feel protected and safe. There are
many names for this place of non-being – The Taoists called it
Yin. Others call it the ‘womb of potential’ or the ‘void’.  
Scientists may call it REM or delta.  In this stage of sleep there
is the potential to simply wipe the slate clean and start over. We
