    At night I can't turn my mind off without sleep meds for last 5 years. On level 8 now for 20 days usually listening to it 20 - 30 minutes lying down before going to sleep by taking meds. In summers we sleep with a quiet ceiling fan. Have used Holosync for 2+ years before starting LifeFlow regularly 4 months ago.
    1. Is it necessary to go 2 months on each level? It seems like the best levels for sleep help are the lower ones.
    2. What are the best uses of LifeFlow to improve sleep?

    The recommendation in the lifeflow instructions is to spend at least 4 weeks (1 month) on each level, and that's why if you buy the CD's to download, they are released to you 1 month apart. You certainly don't have to spend 2 months on each, but generally you will get a feeling of when you are comfortable with a level and ready to move on to the next.

    Looking at the Hz range of each level, yes, there are ones that are supposed to be better for sleep, but in truth, the whole program, along with meditation will start to benefit you in so many ways that your sleep should improve, regarless of which Hz you're listening to.

    Hugs

    If your main purpose is to induce sleep, you may have more success using a binaural beat soundtrack designed for that. You can make your own to any frequency you like using a program like Brainwave generator.
    Certainly regular meditation is likely to improve sleep along with many other benefits. Lying down listening to these soundtracks may well help you go to sleep, I often used Holosync myself for just this purpose, but it wont have the same long term and long lasting beneficial effects that meditation will.
    I know there are folks out there who will tell you that just playing the soundtrack is enough - that the soundtrack will meditate you. But it isn't true.
    You're meditating when you're meditating, sitting, awake, focussing.

    Thanks for the correction & encouragement. I have started to walk for 20+ minutes and meditate for 20+. That seemed to help a lot today.

    Thanks for the info on Brainwave generator. Will see when I can make time to add it to meditation and exercise and work. Thanks for the encouragement.

    Hi Bob,
    To deal with insomnia, create your sleep schedule and avoid over sleeping. Take a hot, relaxing bath and wait until you are sleepy before going to bed. Have the bedroom be dark and quiet and make sure the bed, pillow and room temperature are comfortable.
