Sleep Smarter and Improve Your Sleep Patterns With Hypnosis

by Erika Flint, BCH, OB on

Where does good sleep begin? The night before? The week before? How about now?  Right now. You can sleep better and improve your sleep patterns because you are here right now with the intention to sleep smarter with hypnosis. 

You may feel like it’s impossible to get better sleep, because you’ve tried everything!

Some things have worked.

Yet you’re still here, hopeful that you can truly find ways to sleep better, consistently. 

I’ve helped hundreds of people master their sleep through hypnosis, specifically targeting sleep-related issues. 

What does it mean to sleep smarter? 

Sleeping smarter means focusing on the quality of sleep rather than the quantity of hours spent in bed. When I help a client sleep smarter (even the ones who say they're good sleepers), it’s more restorative and restful on a level they hadn’t thought of or known of before hypnosis.


When we allow the mind to heal, it will do so on it’s own in a grander way then we can ever imagine!

This is why I love hypnosis; we are creating an environment for our clients to change, and they often change and grow way beyond even what they thought they were coming in for.

If you approach hypnosis the right way - meaning lovingly without judgment, clients will always find ways to sleep smarter. 

What Does it Mean to Improve Your Sleep Patterns?

Improving your sleep patterns with hypnosis involves using hypnosis techniques to create positive changes in your sleep habits and the quality of your sleep. This process typically focuses on the subconscious mind, where many of our habits and behaviors are deeply rooted. 

Here are some of the ways hypnosis works to improve sleep patterns: 

  • Tapping into the Subconscious: Hypnosis works by accessing the subconscious part of the mind, which influences our behaviors and patterns, including sleep.
  • Identifying and Healing Root Causes of Sleep Issues: Often, poor sleep patterns are linked to underlying issues like stress, anxiety, or past traumas. Hypnosis can help identify these root causes and address them, which can lead to improved sleep patterns.
  • Creating Positive Sleep Habits: Through hypnotic suggestions and affirmations, we can build healthy sleep habits, such as establishing a regular sleep schedule, creating a bedtime routine, or developing a more positive association with sleep.
  • Using Relaxation Techniques: Hypnosis incorporates relaxation techniques (like those found in our free relaxation recording) that can calm the mind and body, making it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep.
  • Enhancing Mind-Body Connection: Hypnosis helps strengthen the connection between the mind and body, creating a more effective sleep-wake cycle.

Does Sleep Hypnosis Work?

Every client I’ve worked with has improved their sleep with hypnosis.

For some, it’s as simple as implementing a routine of daily hypnosis practice, like the Alpha Sequence, or the Relaxation Recording.

For others, there is trauma in the past associated with sleep, or being safe in one’s own space.

We get the honor as hypnotists to help our client release any past stored overwhelming situations.

Some people call it trauma, and I’ll use my client's language.

Yet to be clear, as hypnotists we are not dealing directly with trauma.

We are helping our clients release erroneous perceptions about a situation they found overwhelming, and some of those erroneous perceptions are stored in the body.

So even if a client comes for weight loss hypnosis, they may sleep poorly from a past experience.

If we don’t address that situation and help our clients heal with hypnosis, the client may not get truly deep sleep.

They may lose weight, but it could be more harmonious if they also improved their sleep patterns and worked through blockers to sleep mastery.

The mind is presenting trauma as sleep issues to be released, to be addressed - and that's often why our clients are aware of them. 

Consider that many of my hypnosis clients report they're just now realizing why they’ve been having trouble sleeping. 

"Oh, I'm just now realizing an experience I had with sleep when I was at college and I woke up and someone was in my dorm room.

I honestly hadn't thought about it until now."

When we recognize the root causes of poor sleep, we can begin to heal and truly master our sleep.

Whether it's through healing unresolved grief or stress and anxiety, hypnosis can pave the way for smarter sleep and personal growth. 

I’ve helped many of my hypnosis clients improve their sleep patterns because it’s a required part of the transformational journey.

They’d lose weight, but if they weren’t sleeping well it would likely come back.

The lack of sleep fed back into overwhelming stress, and it all became too much.

Therefore, as a core element of the work I do with clients now, sleep is an important focus.

Does Sleep Hypnosis Work?

Brian came to my hypnosis office because he retired and his supercomputer mind made it hard to fall asleep.

The issue at the core of Brian’s inability to sleep was painful.

It’s no wonder his mind didn’t want him to struggle the rest of his life with it.

So, he found himself in my office with a symptom of poor sleep.

We found the source and it satisfied the mind.

Brian was at peace from the inside out. 

Then he allowed himself to rest. Then his conscious mind allowed him to surrender the day. 

Once we addressed his core issues through hypnosis for sleep, Brian started experiencing better, more consistent rest. Now, he is sleeping smarter. 

Hypnosis helped Brian not just with sleep, but also in spending more quality time with his grandson.

Create Your Sleep Mastery Blueprint With Our Sleep Hypnosis Boot Camp

Let’s talk now about WHY we teach Sleep Hypnosis as a Boot Camp and how you can create your own sleep mastery blueprint. 

The structure of a boot camp - it’s really a PLAYGROUND, or a SANDBOX.


I prefer the term sandbox because it implies a younger age, when we would play in a sandbox, perhaps at the ages of 2 or 3.

And we used to use it in software development all the time.

An entire server, an entire codebase, was called a sandbox.

The sandbox was there to play. You can’t ruin anything there. If you destroy the sandbox with your piece of code, it can be recreated with a few clicks.

It’s not “for real” - it’s just for fun.

Now do things move out of the software sandbox?

All the time.

For example, with the story of Slack, the messaging platform.

The developers at Slack initially created an internal chat system as a side project to facilitate communication within their company.

They referred to this project as their "sandbox."

As they continued to experiment and refine the platform, they realized its potential and decided to launch it as a separate product.

Today, Slack has become a widely adopted communication tool used by millions of people and businesses around the world.

Similar to a sandbox, the idea of our sleep hypnosis boot camp is to play.

And play serves many benefits to the mind, here are a few of my favorites from one of my favorite books on sleep, The Science of Sleep by John Medina.

In the One Day Hypnosis Boot Camp, you will play all day with different perspectives, hypnotic techniques, and in the end you’ll have discovered your own "Sleep Mastery Blueprint."

Small promises you’ll make to yourself about sleep that serve you at the deepest level.

This is not easy work.

It’s focused. And loving.

You will discover personalized strategies and create a customized sleep mastery plan that allows you to experience restorative sleep consistently.

So the idea is to play.

And play serves many benefits to the mind, here are a few of my favorites from one of my favorite books on sleep, The Science of Sleep by John Medina.

Achieve Smarter Sleep Through Play at Our Hypnosis Boot Camp

When we're at play, the mind experiences several learning benefits.

Some of these include:

  1. Hippocampus and Long-Term Memories: Play helps the brain's memory center, called the hippocampus, to create and strengthen long-term memories.
  2. Improved Attention and Focus: Playing activates different parts of the brain responsible for attention and focus, leading to better cognitive abilities and learning.
  3. Enhanced Problem-Solving Skills: Play often involves solving puzzles or challenges, which can improve problem-solving skills and encourage creative thinking.
  4. Increased Motivation and Engagement: Play is enjoyable and can boost motivation and engagement. When we enjoy activities, we are more open to learning and remember information better.
