Great point paaji. One of the ways, one can do that is to listen to katha, while in sleeping posture. That might help, especially if you fully concentrate on the katha. Choose the katha according to y

I've dealt with insomnia since I was young. It went away for a good few years and just popped back up recently.

 

I think having coffee just before training in the evening probably doesn't help.

Bhul chuk maaf

Then, try at least 6. Bro, try for some days and see if that makes a difference or not.

Did you check the Shabad Sidhi granth? Is insomnia mentioned in it?

Bhul chuk maaf

Yes. I do go caffeine free periodically. I guess it's time again. Just got to use up that pot of double cream I just bought! lol

Bro, try doing jaap of the following shabad. This shabad is part of Sri Dukh Bhanjani Sahib jee. It seems, one of the reasons Satguru jee has uttered it, is to cure sleep related disorders.

 

ਬਿਲਾਵਲੁ ਮਹਲਾ ੫

Bilaaval, Fifth Mehl:

ਰੋਗੁ ਗਇਆ ਪ੍ਰਭਿ ਆਪਿ ਗਵਾਇਆ ॥

The disease is gone; God Himself took it away.

ਨੀਦ ਪਈ ਸੁਖ ਸਹਜ ਘਰੁ ਆਇਆ ॥੧ਰਹਾਉ ॥

I sleep in peace; peaceful poise has come to my home. ||1||Pause||

ਰਜਿ ਰਜਿ ਭੋਜਨੁ ਖਾਵਹੁ ਮੇਰੇ ਭਾਈ ॥

Eat to your fill, O my Siblings of Destiny.

ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਨਾਮੁ ਰਿਦ ਮਾਹਿ ਧਿਆਈ ॥੧

Meditate on the Ambrosial Naam, the Name of the Lord, within your heart. ||1||

ਨਾਨਕ ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੇ ਸਰਨਾਈ ॥

Nanak has entered the Sanctuary of the Perfect Guru,

ਜਿਨਿ ਅਪਨੇ ਨਾਮ ਕੀ ਪੈਜ ਰਖਾਈ ॥੨੨੬

who has preserved the honor of His Name. ||2||8||26||

I love that shabad. I don't think it was specifically designed to be an insomnia cure though... lol

DalsinghDalsingh, I suggest a physical activity with bhabiji will surely make you go to sleep afterwards.

Hang on man! I thought I could only do that for strictly procreation purposes..... lol

Bro, you can also do a jaap of that shabad using Sampat bidhi. First, recite Mool mantar, then the shabad (recite Satnaam Sri Waheguru, where ever there is a number) and then mool mantar at the end too. For the last tuk, recite mool mantar after the word "ਰਖਾਈ ". Then recite "Satnaam Sri Waheguru" three times, as there are three numerals at the end. This Bidhi increases the effectiveness of the shabad.

 

Some more Shabads, related to sleep:

 

ਤਾ ਤੂੰ ਸੁਖਿ ਸੋਉ ਹੋਇ ਅਚਿੰਤਾ ॥

So sleep in peace, and don't worry.

 

ਮਨੁ ਤਨੁ ਬੁਧਿ ਅਰਪੀ ਠਾਕੁਰ ਕਉ ਤਬ ਹਮ ਸਹਜਿ ਸੋਏ ॥੩

But when I dedicated my mind, body and intellect to my Lord and Master, then I began to sleep in peace. ||3||

 

ਸਹਜੇ ਜਾਗਣੁ ਸਹਜੇ ਸੋਇ ॥

They awaken in peace and poise; they sleep in peace and poise.

 

ਸੁਣਿ ਸਖੀਏ ਮੇਰੀ ਨੀਦ ਭਲੀ ਮੈ ਆਪਨੜਾ ਪਿਰੁ ਮਿਲਿਆ ॥

Listen, O my companions: now I sleep well, since I found my Husband Lord.

 

ਤਿਸਹਿ ਤਿਆਗਿ ਸੁਖ ਸਹਜੇ ਸੋਊ ॥

Give them up, and sleep in intuitive peace and poise.

 

ਜਿਹ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ਸੁਖਿ ਸੇਜ ਸੋਈਜੈ ॥

By His Grace, you sleep in a cozy bed;

 

ਸਹਜਿ ਸੁਖਿ ਸੋਈਐ ਹਾਂ ॥

I sleep in peace and poise.

 

 

ਆਉ ਸਭਾਗੀ ਨੀਦੜੀਏ ਮਤੁ ਸਹੁ ਦੇਖਾ ਸੋਇ ॥

Come to me, O blessed sleep - perhaps I will see my Husband Lord again.

 

ਜਨ ਨਾਨਕ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਦੇਹੁ ਮਤੀ ਛਡਿ ਆਸਾ ਨਿਤ ਸੁਖਿ ਸਉਦਿਆ ॥੨

Please bless servant Nanak, O God, with such understanding, that abandoning false hopes, he may always sleep in peace. ||2||

 

ਅਬ ਮੋਹਿ ਨੀਦ ਸੁਹਾਵੈ ॥

and now, sleep seems sweet to me.

 

ਹਰਿ ਭਗਤਾ ਕਾ ਮੇਲੀ ਸਰਬਤ ਸਉ ਨਿਸੁਲ ਜਨ ਟੰਗ ਧਰਿ ॥

The Lord is the friend and companion of His devotees; all His humble servants stretch out and sleep in peace.

 

ਹਭੇ ਸੁਖ ਸੁਹੇਲੜਾ ਸੁਤਾ ਜਿਤਾ ਜਗੁ ਸਬਾਇਆ ॥੨

I sleep in total peace and comfort; I have conquered the whole world. ||2||

 

ਸੁਖਿ ਸਵੰਧਿ ਸੋਹਾਗਣੀ ਪਿਰੁ ਪਾਇਆ ਗੁਣਤਾਸੁ ॥੩

The happy soul-brides sleep in peace; they find their Husband Lord, the treasure of virtue. ||3||

 

ਤਬ ਕਾੜਾ ਛੋਡਿ ਅਚਿੰਤ ਹਮ ਸੋਤੇ ॥੩

So I have abandoned sadness, and I now sleep without anxiety. ||3||

 

ਸੁਖਿ ਸੋਇਓ ਅਰੁ ਸਹਜਿ ਸਮਾਇਓ ਸਹਸਾ ਗੁਰਹਿ ਗਵਾਏ ॥

They sleep in peace, and intuitively merge into the Lord. The Guru takes away their cynicism and doubt.

 

ਨਾਨਕ ਸੁਖਿ ਸਵਨੁ ਸੋਹਾਗਣੀ ਜਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਸਹ ਨਾਲਿ ਪਿਆਰੁ ॥੨

O Nanak, the blessed soul-brides sleep in peace; they are in love with their Husband Lord. ||2||

I think weather changes play a part too. I find it harder to sleep in warm weather.
