Awareness of this pattern is the path to liberation from it. We all desire to minimize our stress and suffering; we desire peace. We try to find the solution to the problem we see as the cause of stress. We try to avoid situations that are stressful. We attempt to change our job, our partner, or our location. During that time he did no treatment, not even through enhancing focuses and stress relief, although he understood very well how powerful that could be. Instead, he waited. After four months, he called us and told us that he had a rapidly progressing tumor. I immediately arranged for a ticket to be waiting for him at De Gaulle airport in Paris the next morning. He took the plane and arrived at our office. After getting him settled in his hotel, we began treating him. In the first Feedback session, after his arrival, we were setting goals (as Arthur teaches you to do in his article) and asked him to see, hear, feel, smell, taste what it would mean when his health was perfect. He did not do that. Instead, he said, 'I have done all I have come here to do. My work on this planet is finished. I've taken drugs to put me to sleep and drugs to keep me awake. I have interviewed hundreds of people, ranging from firefighters to doctors, astronauts to police officers, about their sleep. I have also begun to look at the impact of food on sleep and test out different ways to improve sleep quality. You may be someone who is desperate to get a good night's sleep.

Or you may simply be interested in what happens to you when your eyes close and you drift off into the land of Nod. The first part of this article is all about the science of sleep: the research that has led to our current knowledge and how this has given us rich insights into a previously undiscovered land. What are common sleep disorders and how do they arise? What really happens to your brain and body when they are chronically sleep deprived? Why are dreams so important and how can you make the most of them? I will use my own sleep adventures to illuminate the journey and I will, of course, provide plenty of scientific studies to justify my more surprising claims. Before that, let's look at the hidden emotion model. The hidden emotion model states that anxiety is caused by a fear of negative emotions. This idea came about because it was observed that people with anxiety are almost all incredibly nice. If you have social anxiety, chances are you don't start arguments and boss people around on a day-to-day basis, its far more likely that you treat those around you well, too well in fact. When people are upsetting you, you probably don't deal with that conflict directly and assertively, you probably keep those emotions to yourself. If you keep your upset to yourself, you cause yourself negative consequences. My father died suddenly when I was eighteen years old. He was the person I was closest to, I didn't know how to process his death. What did I do? I didn't get angry (even though I had good reason to), I didn't get upset, I didn't feel anything. This means that if we are comfortable financially and our needs are met, more money does not increase our life satisfaction. Another famous study in 1978 by Northwestern University and the University of Massachusetts reported that, when people experience unexpected luck (like winning the lottery) or unexpected tragedy (like a catastrophic car accident), their level of happiness eventually returns to the same level it was prior to the event. The truth is, while most of us feel happy' for some part of each day, achieving happiness in life can be like chasing the horizon. <a href=''>It</a> is always there in moments when we have a higher perspective and yet, when we chase after it and try to catch it, it disappears into thin air. <br /><br /><a href=''>It</a> is always just out of reach--our modern mirage. <a href=''>So</a> if happiness is not in money, luck or the future, where is it? <a href=''>Where</a> is that purposeful, on track, meaningful, satisfied, joyful feeling ofarriving' that we are all searching for? I have been researching this question for several years, and here is what I've discovered The human brain, left to its own devices, is unable to make us happy. The human brain is simply a signalling machine that is built to keep us alive and avoid pain. The first of the four strategies for learning what our lives are trying to teach us is awareness. Before we can create beneficial change in our lives, we need to be aware of what is happening. This seems obvious but, in reality, most of us prefer to experience our lives selectively, embracing that which is pleasant, and avoiding that which is unpleasant or causes fear. Over time we develop a personality that is an elaborate network of strategies for dealing with what makes us uncomfortable and what we fear. Avoiding our emotional discomfort keeps us forever separated from the full depth and power of our experience and its usefulness as a teacher. Unfortunately, these strategies can become so much a part of our personality that we become unconscious of what is actually happening in our inner world. Our system runs on autopilot. In a sense, over time, we actually develop and expand our unconsciousness. This unconsciousness spills over into the outer world. It affects our relationship with the world because, when we disconnect with our own inner world, when we don't have the map for this world, we disconnect with the inner world of others, which is so like our own. We try to change ourselves. We read self-help articles. We meditate. We go to religious services.

We talk with people about our problems. We seek professional help. I'm sure you are familiar with whatever you do to deal with your stress. When we have an argument with someone, when we feel hurt in a relationship, when we are having difficulties in our work or face a business loss, we tend to see the problem as being outside of us, something we need to solve. We analyze the issue to find logical explanations or reasons why such a situation has occurred and determine what we should do about it. We might say, 'The problem between my wife and me is that she simply does not understand me; ' No amount of input from us had any impact. His mental/emotional image was that he was finished. Because we loved him, we did not accept that and proceeded to conduct our treatments. Within days after he arrived, he needed emergency surgery because the cancer caused serious internal bleeding. The surgeon came out of the Operating Room and told us that he was so riddled with cancer that there was absolutely nothing to do but make him comfortable and make funeral arrangements. We did just the opposite and three weeks later, when another surgery was performed to debulk, or reduce the volume of the tumor, I was present in another Operating Room when the surgical oncologist stared down in wonder and said, 'There is virtually no tumor here! There is only one tiny patch on the outside of the esophagus! My GOD! What have you been doing? All of this lays the groundwork for the second part of the article, which is primarily aimed at helping you sleep better. After all, I suspect that many of you are reading this article because you suffer from occasional insomnia, or you know someone who does. I will take you through the best that modern science can offer with a sleep programme that should, within a few weeks, set you on a better path. One of my key goals is to help you improve your sleep efficiency', which is a measure of how well you've slept. <br /><br /><a href=''>Your</a> sleep efficiency represents the amount time you spend in bed interesting, as opposed to trying to get to sleep or lying in bed wide awake, fretting. <a href=''>You</a> should be aiming for a sleep efficiency of 85%. <a href=''>More</a> on that later. <a href=''>As</a> for the interesting programme, at its heart are two novel and surprising elements, both based on the latest scientific research. <a href=''>The</a> first thing that might surprise you is that the most effective way to cure insomnia is to reboot your brain by putting yourself through a short course of Sleep Restriction Therapy. <a href=''>It</a> is called Sleep Restriction Therapy because, paradoxically, it demands that you cut back on your sleep. <a href=''>I</a> became totally numb for a period of several months. <a href=''>Unsurprisingly,</a> this had consequences, instead of going through a period of deep (and natural) sadness, I experienced something far more painful. <a href=''>Several</a> months after my father's death, I had my first panic attack. <a href=''>One</a> afternoon, I was playing drums when I noticed a strange pain and numbness in my left arm. <a href=''>The</a> thought crossed my mind, 'Can't pain in my left arm mean I'm having a heart attack? <a href=''>'</a> but I ignored this thought. <a href=''>Several</a> minutes later, the feelings intensified, and my heart started racing, I felt dizzy, and I even felt like I was about to faint. <a href=''>I</a> couldn't help but feel that something very terrible was about to happen. <a href=''>I</a> kept thinking I might be having a heart attack. <a href=''>I</a> didn't want to think this, but the conclusion kept coming up, again, and again, and again. <a href=''>That's</a> it. <a href=''>Most</a> of us are just living according to the programs of our childhood that were installed by our genetics and environment. <a href=''>I</a> call themsomeone like me' programs. This is how much money someone like me earns.
