In sleep we are in a brain state with its own set of rules and possibilities. We connect information in ways we wouldn’t do in the day.
At the same time intuition and emotion are on full speed. This makes dreaming weird, confrontational, connective and also: a super brainstorm.
Don’t take my word for it – psychology professor Deirdre Barrett (Harvard) sees dreams as essentially another way of thinking. Our brains never stop working, and a sleeping brain is at it’s height of creativity and intuition. That explains why we often wake up with a good idea.
So why doesn’t everyone know about this? Well, the neuroscience behind it in it is pretty new. In this blog I dive deeper on that and there’s more blogs to come.
The great news is: this power can be harnessed, and that’s exactly what I am here to teach you. Because the results are transformational. While sleeping on a problem, I have seen my clients figure out:
- where they are stuck, and what to do about it
- a new angle for strategic decisions
- a life direction that truly connected with their heart
Want to bypass your standard train of thought and get un-stuck? Sleep on it. Using sleep with intention we can solve problems, achieve clarity, and increase insight. Mark my words: sleep is the new productivity hack.
