Tonight we’re going to open ourselves up to feeling good, and all that may bring. By gently quieting your busy thoughts, you naturally begin to feel better. By feeling better it is easier to be open to the things you want, and they are more likely to make their way to you. There is a sense of ease in feeling good, a letting go, a confidence that even if things don’t always work out the way you expected that they’re still working out.  First, we'll start with some relaxing insight from Karissa (00:00-04:10) Before tonight's Sleep Hypnosis (04:10-37:17) The idea we are positing tonight is essentially the idea of manifestation. That word has gotten a lot of play in recent years, and may elicit an automatic eye roll for some, but what it means to Karissa is just this: being willing to feel good. If you choose to feel good about your career when I’m still trying to get it off the ground, or your health when you're sick, or sleep when you’ve been suffering from insomnia, it may seem silly at best, false or forced at worst. But when you open up to good things happening, and if you prepare yourself to feel good, when those good things come your way you are ready to hold on to them. Even if things don't go as planned, you may find yourself feeling good anyway. This is part of the magic that can come from meditation.  Join Sleep Wave Premium ✨ in just two taps!

In tonight's Sleep Meditation with Karissa we’re going to meditate on the complex subject of trust. If you’ve had your heart broken, or your faith diminished by something our someone in your life, I am so sorry. You are not alone. We are here together tonight, breathing, grounding, meditating, and beginning to open ourselves up to be able to trust again.  First, we'll start with some relaxing insight from Karissa (00:00-05:13) Before tonight's Sleep Hypnosis (05:13-37:23) Tonight’s sleep meditation explores what it is that we can put our trust in to give us a sense of firm footing in our relationships as well as our place in the universe. Just as the foundation of a house must be sound if the house has any chance of surviving, we must be able to trust on some fundamental level in order to function and flourish.  Join Sleep Wave Premium ✨ in just two taps!

In tonight's Sleep Meditation with Karissa, we are going to reconnect to the feelings of safety, comfort and ease of being safe in our beds. Immersing yourself in these sensations will help your body to relax fully and deeply, and a relaxed body leads to a relaxed mind.  First, we'll start with some relaxing insight from Karissa (00:00-04:53) Before tonight's Sleep Hypnosis (04:53-38:48) Our beds are a place of refuge. It doesn’t always feel that way when we are tossing and turning though, or when sleep is more foe than friend. Tonight’s sleep meditation is about becoming the calm at the center of the storm and taking refuge within your own center. To some, this may sound like the exact opposite of refuge. Many people look outside of themselves for comfort when conditions and circumstances seem turbulent. Let's access that place of calm and tranquility with in ourselves, and through meditation become our own shelter from the storm.  Join Sleep Wave Premium ✨ in just two taps!

In tonight's Sleep Meditation with Karissa, we take inspiration from Halloween to help us look at the things that we keep beneath the surface, and playfully acknowledge the darker parts of life so that we can integrate them. Meditation is a wonderful way to integrate all the parts of ourselves, which helps soothe our minds. Get cozy and take a deep breath, as we go on a meditation journey together.  First, we'll start with some relaxing insight from Karissa (00:00-04:13) Before tonight's Sleep Meditation (04:13-38:48) The origins of Halloween have roots in a Celtic festival known as Samhain. The festival was a way to welcome the harvest and usher in the darker half of the year. Light and dark are so fundamental to our lives and the lives of every human being who has come before that we have co-evolved with the light and the dark as essential features of our environment. Let's take time to look at the light and the dark tonight.

In tonight's Sleep Meditation with Karissa, we learn that sometimes, when things are feeling overwhelming, a change of mindset can make everything seem a little better. Instead of feeling gloomy, tonight, we’re going to float in a pool of gratitude together, letting go of all the negative thoughts that are not serving us. First, we'll start with some relaxing insight from Karissa (00:00-03:58) Before tonight's Sleep Meditation (03:58-34:43) It is our thoughts that decide whether we are free or unfree. As Shakespeare wrote in Hamlet, “There is nothing good or bad but thinking makes it so.” So basically, a little positive thinking goes a long way. So, get comfortable and cozy in your bed, take a deep breath, and let’s meditate together in gratitude, before drifting off to a deep and restorative sleep.  Join Sleep Wave Premium ✨ in just two taps!

In tonight's Sleep Meditation with Karissa we’re going to practice self-soothing before sleep, so that you can consciously slow down your mind and relax your body. Honing this skill will help you sleep deeply and also bring more ease and peace to your days.  First, we'll start with some relaxing insight from Karissa (00:00-04:23) Before tonight's Sleep Meditation (04:23-40:12) Tonight, we will take stock of our current allostatic load. That is to say, we will check in to see how much we are anticipating future stress. Through meditation, we can decrease the allostatic load that our bodies carry, not only preventing the knee-jerk reactions to stressful situations but over time, but also preventing the negative health effects of a chronically high level of stress. So, let your intention tonight be to practice conscious relaxation to gently soothe your nervous system to anticipate well-being. Let relaxation become a habit. Before you know it, your stress will be soothed, and you'll drift into peaceful sleep. Join Sleep Wave Premium ✨ in just two taps!

In tonight's Sleep Meditation with Karissa we’re going to explore ways to quiet our minds so that even if the body is in pain it can still find rest. If this is something you’re experiencing tonight, if you are suffering from injury, feeling a little unwell, if you're a little worn out or just having trouble sleeping, know that you are not alone. Meditate with Karissa, and train yourself to reach deep relaxation regardless of any obstacles you may be facing. First, we'll start with some relaxing insight from Karissa (00:00-04:28) Before tonight's Sleep Meditation (04:28-37:18) Pain is like a message from the body to the mind. It isn’t that pain is something to be hoped for, in fact, it can and should be avoided if at all possible but when it is present, its signal should be honored. The first step to honoring the signal that pain is sending is to simply stop trying to push it away. For this brief time, practice mindfulness with whatever is arising in the present moment. Simply watch what is happening without reinforcing the same familiar story that you associate with what is arising. With relaxation comes healing, so meditate with Karissa tonight, and make space for your body to rest, drifting into a deep and restorative sleep.

In tonight's Sleep Meditation with Karissa, we’re going to consciously take off the masks we wear day-to-day, immersing ourselves in the quiet place inside ourselves so that we can rest fully and wake up tomorrow feeling integrated and ready to face whatever the day may bring.  First, we'll start with some relaxing insight from Karissa (00:00-04:27) Before tonight's Sleep Meditation (04:27-38:13) Even today in our modern world, the masks we wear inform others how they should relate to us. The personas we take on from day to day are characters that we have crafted over the course of our lives; a personality that you’ve honed by learning strategies about how best to win friends and accolades, or at least achieve basic goals in social situations. Sometimes we become so preoccupied with putting on social masks and being who people want us to be, that we forget that we are wearing a mask. So consider tonight's meditation as a gentle reminder to take the mask off and allow your identity to shift away from the role you play in society and toward the depth of your being, deep, deep down and way, way in.

Tonight’s Sleep Meditation with Karissa is an invitation to spend some time in the ocean of being, letting the waves come and go. Meditation has taught Karissa that things come and go and come and go. Just like a wave. Emotions can act this way. You may feel totally fine one moment, and some time later, not so much. And that’s okay. You might be at the crest of the wave right now, but soon it will subside. Meditating before sleep can help us both become aware of this impermanence and allow us to become relaxed by the “wave” instead of disturbed by it.  First, we'll start with some relaxing insight from Karissa (00:00-04:48) Before tonight's Sleep Meditation (04:48-38:37)  Let’s not confuse the wave with the ocean. The wave is a transient modulation in the form of the ocean. These waves of emotion can easily carry us away from the peace and contentment that is our natural state of mind. Rather than being hyper-vigilant about never letting waves of emotion get the better of us, another strategy is to pay attention to your point of view. Are you the wave or are you the ocean? The truth is you can be both.

In tonight's Sleep Meditation with Karissa, we are going to learn how to surrender- surrender to our beds, surrendering our worries, opening our mind and body up to all the peace that is available to us. By surrendering we can release our anxiety, ceasing to struggle to control our minds and the world around us, and allowing sleep to take over.  First, we'll start with some relaxing insight from Karissa (00:00-04:36) Before tonight's Sleep Meditation (04:36-35:40) Surrendering is easier said that done, of course. Our minds want to fix problems, and yet the beautiful and mysterious part of meditation is that by releasing thoughts of the how or when or why, the answers can actually make their way to us. Tonight we’re going to practice getting quiet and still so our minds can arrive in the present moment, and drift off to a healing sleep.  Join Sleep Wave Premium ✨ in just two taps!

In tonight's Sleep Meditation with Karissa we’ll focus together on the natural and abundant flow of rain to help soothe our busy minds and connect us to our deeper selves. Let’s take a deep breath, get comfy, and go with the flow of rest so that tomorrow we can wake up feeling refreshed and renewed.  First, we'll start with some relaxing insight from Karissa (00:00-03:57) Before tonight's Sleep Meditation (03:57-38:96) Rain represents a phase in a cycle of renewal and regeneration, without which resources are depleted and life becomes defined by scarcity and deprivation.  With rain, life springs eternal and the cleansing properties of water wash away the veil of obstruction that clouded our vision. Tonight’s Sleep Meditation will remind you that there is refreshment, renewal and abundance falling into your life, perhaps when you least expect it, and that you should acknowledge the difficult times as an opportunity to steady yourself as you persevere until the rain comes, bringing with it the blessings of renewal and regeneration.

In tonight's Sleep Meditation with Karissa, we will create a quiet space in our minds, where we can release our regrets. Let's let go of the questions and instead settle into the stillness of now so that we can begin tomorrow refreshed and more able to face whatever comes our way.  First, we'll start with some relaxing insight from Karissa (00:00-04:35) Before tonight's Sleep Meditation (04:35-35:12) Tonight’s meditation will release you from the negative effects of regret. Instead of dwelling on your regret, accept it. When you acknowledge that regret is a natural part of life, you are freed from becoming trapped by those very natural and even useful thoughts. Regrets are insights as well. You can look back on your past actions and having lived through the whole set of consequences, you can discern certain principles. Then, going forward, let those principles guide your steps. The regret emotion that you feel is like a message from your past that says, “There is another way to go. You don’t have to keep taking the same path.” So, let's meditate together, and begin to work on our relationship with regret, stilling our minds, and finding peace with our past as we drift off to sleep.

In tonight's Sleep Meditation with Karissa we’re going to release any feelings of comparison and bring peace and awareness to our own unique paths in life while we drift off to a soothing rest. First, we'll start with some relaxing insight from Karissa (00:00-04:14) Before tonight's Sleep Meditation (04:14-34:44) When you look at a really beautiful sunset, you may admire it, awestruck, without feeling envy. The beauty you see in the sunset does not diminish your perception of your own beauty. Yet, when we encounter someone who is beautiful, or successful, or particularly happy, we often experience resentment or envy. Tonight, we shine light on this, and learn to embrace the truly transformative potential of practicing Mudita, responding to someones happiness and success with genuine delight and joy, rather than destructive comparison.

Unfortunately the music is too grating and needs to be more in the background. Such a shame!
