EXERCISE FOR INDUCING SLEEP

[From The Rosicrucian Digest June 1953]
 
 
The Danish psychiatrist, Dr. Gudmund Magnussen, in a report to the National Association for Mental Health in New York, suggested the following method to bring about sleep:
 
Visualize a restful landscape, one familiar to you.  Fill in all the details of the picture and then concentrate on some small part of it.  Try to hold this part in your imagination.  If outside thoughts interfere, start all over again, bringing the same picture and concentrating on the same point in it.
 
Dr. Magnussen stated that with this "landscape method" one's emotional thoughts, interfering with sleep, are kept away.
