I would like to tell you about myself. I am feeling rather good. A few days ago I faced some crisis, but now I am ok. As you know, I do not use medicine, because I believe in your method of treatment for depression. I think this is most important thing. I gave a promise to my children - never give up and I can not break it. I became interested in affirmation. Now, several times per day I repeat - I am not the mind and thoughts lord – I can choose what to think and the most important thing is - I believe in these words..I have successfully been using your advice, just have a problem with sleep. I do different exercises, but they do not always work. Could you give me some advice, please. Forgive my English. L
Here it is.
Just say over and over in your mind 1 2 3 4 ( pause, breathe in, then breathe out while you say) 5 6 7 8 . Breathe in while you say 1 2 3 4 , breathe out while you say 5 6 7 8. As you get into a rhythm you will find that you easily fall into taking an in-breath with one set of the 4 numbers and an out-breath with the next 4 numbers.
That's all. As you do it more and more it forms a strong neural pattern that becomes linked, through learned association, with your normal going-to-sleep pattern.
Let me know how you do. A. B. Curtiss
