    Dear Naveen ji, I am Vijay Taragi resident of Nainital, having problem of sleep disorder, I have been to numerous doctors for getting myself cured but to no avail, they prescribed various medicine,s which didn’t help, then I came across your well written book, and after doing the practices as prescribed in the book my sleep improved a little, but still I don’t feel fresh after waking up, and am sleep deprived and depressed. Sir it appears to be a small problem to others but only a sleep deprived person know,s what he,s going through. The bliss you often describe in your book is not known to me. Do help me for which I shall always be obliged and great full. Regards Vijay Taragi Nainital.

    Dear Vandana,

    Vijay had sent his email to support team:

    Although I am using cotton as prescribed, and even after practicing NV have not been able to achieve Yog nindra, please advice.

    Dear Vijay ji,

    Sometimes we make yog nidra a goal/ambition which makes the mind active and makes it more difficult for us to achieve YN. When your mind is too active, you would have many thoughts and that would make observation of breath a difficult task. Observation of breath sounds like an easy task but it takes some practice and dedication.

    So take the process of observation of breath as a gentle process. First few days use cotton and just be with your breath. As you get mastery over your breath, then practice NV Swimming with a curiosity and not a goal to achieve YN. Just lie down do each step slowly and you will arrive at YN. Yog Nidra is not something you achieve, you arrive at the same. As the bliss of YN will increase, the sleep will get restored.

    If your insomnia is chronic, I would also suggest you check the online program Chetna-Digital and consider it. In the last batch, many an insomnia patients have been able to work on them selves and restore their sleep. Sometimes, the distress is to the extent that one is not able to work alone and it requires hand holding and guidance. It is similar to the concept of self study; or taking tuition and learning under the guidance of a teacher. Thus, try working on self, yet if you find it difficult don’t be hesitant of seeking help.

While drawing our algorithm, we start with identifying our symptoms. Do we look at our symptoms of today or from our childhood? Our tendencies also seem like they are about today and not from our childhood. How should I interpret this?

You can start with identifying your symptoms today and make your Algorithm identifying your Lack, Tendency and Pattern. It may seem like the tendencies are loud and clear today. This is only because as an adult, you are either more aware of it, or the tendency is more pronounced. However, if you go back to that age group of 7-14, you will find that the same tendency existed back then as well.  

For example – your lack is abandonment and so your tendency is need to prove/ excel. As an adult, you try extremely hard to prove yourself at work, but maybe as a ten-year-old you wanted to make sure that you win a colouring competition or feel worthy by collecting the maximum number of berries or fruits. 

 So, you would notice how the nature of tendency existed even back then – sometimes subtly, sometimes pronounced. It is just a matter of developing sensitivity to recognize it in that time and space. However, you can always work with current scenarios. 

Now that I have made my algorithm and have identified my lack, what do I do with this? Do I have to re-visit my childhood?

In every moment of disappointment – current or past, you can experience the lack. There are two ways to attend to the lack, once identified – 

  1.  You may simply keep your Algorithm/Lack in awareness by writing the events of the current time and go into breathing 
  2. You can revisit your childhood and write about moments that you experienced the Lack/Algorithm and once you have written a few events (in detail), you may lay down and begin to observe your breath. 

In either of the processes, your Algorithm/lack is in your complete awareness and observing your breath after this would only bring an expansion in your awareness. 

After finding my LTP and mapping my algorithm, I can see how I have suffered in my childhood and continue to do so. What can I do to remedy this and reverse my suffering?

 Since you are seeking the cure, you must know that state of meditation is the state of cure. The more you are in this state, the more you move towards light, thus curing your suffering.  

All the things which come into your awareness, must now be attended to by Observing your breath. For process of attending to what has surfaced, refer to Ques no 8
