Sleep walking and REM
Sleep walking occurs during the REM or rapid eye movement part of sleep or dream sleep. Usually the brain body releases a chemical that paralyzes the body. However, those who sleepwalk do not have this chemical trigger, hence the sleep walking.
It can be hard to rouse the sleepwalker during an episode and the general advice is to try to guide the walker back to bed. Afterwards the sleepwalker may have no recollection of the episode.
Dangers of sleep walking
People have been known to boil kettles or even attempt to drive cars whilst sleep walking so we urge you to seek medical assistance and advice if you suffer from sleepwalking. You can use this session in conjunction with other medical interventions.
Reasons for sleep walking
Children tend to grow out of sleep walking-the cause may be anxiety or not having had enough sleep. Sleepwalking doesn't necessarily indicate psychological problems.
Adult sleep walking may be related to alcohol abuse, brain seizures or as a reaction to certain drugs and medications. So it's important to get medical advice if you or someone you know sleep walks.
Hypnosis and sleep walking
Hypnosis and sleep walking are actually connected. Hypnosis is a way of accessing the REM or rapid eye movement state when you are still awake. You are more suggestible during this REM state which is why hypnosis is used to cure all kinds of conditions.
Because sleep walking occurs in the REM state then suggestions given in controlled REM, otherwise known as 'hypnosis' can help the uncontrolled sleep walking REM state.
You'll find this session both relaxing and useful and should listen to it repeatedly for best results.
