Your conscious mind or the mind that you use while awake is limited as studies have shown that it can only embrace so many ideas at one time. That is why your unconscious mind or larger mind is the part of you that controls your manners and bodily functions such as; heart beating, lungs breathing, brain thinking and keeps your body healthy and energized. The unconscious mind can multi-task and when you learn how to do something it will remember like riding a bicycle or driving a car. Learning to drive involves many functions that become a habit that after time you don’t have to think about the mechanics of driving anymore such as; knowing when to brake, use a turn signal or when to accelerate. But since our unconscious mind can learn anything that is repeated no matter if we want to or not, it can also instill bad habits. In fact, according to McKenna book I Can Make You Sleep: Overcome Insomnia Forever and Get the Best Rest of Your Life! Book and CD, insomnia is just a bad habit.

Changing how you think by exercises and lifestyle changes you can learn to undo bad habits. The CD also provides hypnotic suggestions that aid in the regulating you sleep/wake cycle. I tried the CD for the first time and found that it helps you to relax, but needed to listen to it a second time to become drowsy enough to fall asleep. I slept six hours straight and felt fully rested upon waking. Publishers Weekly’s review found that the book was easy to follow and didn’t get bogged down in unnecessary explanation. The CD offers help for insomniacs through self-hypnosis and deeper sleep. Library Journal assessment of McKenna’s work as written in a special hypnotic language intended to reset the reader’s sleep cycle with colorful graphics and a low-toned male voice recommending that the listener sleep, make love and use his book/CD only in bed. The book concludes with sleep questions and a list of 14 golden rules of sleep.
