Over the years, research studies have proven that the human brain is far more receptive to sensory input, specifically audio, when we are in a sleep state.    Why?  Because when we are awake, we are typically operating in hectic, multi-tasking-required environments.  We're driving down the road, talking on a cell phone.  We cook dinner while we're watching t.v.  We're studying a homework assignment while we're thinking about a party later that night.  It can be difficult to concentrate on any one thing with everything else that's competing for our attention.

Awake we are distracted.  Asleep is a different story.  In a sleep state, our conscious mind isn't forced to deal with noisy distractions, random thoughts, or the day to day to-do lists that occupy our time.  When we sleep, our conscious mind is at rest.  This leaves our subconscious mind open and receptive to incoming audio stimulation.

The effectiveness of sleep learning and sleep meditation has been demonstrated in multiple studies in both academic and field environments.

One such study involved a Canadian newspaper reporter who was provided an audio Spanish language sleep learning program.  She had previously had minimal exposure to the Spanish language, and had never participated in a Spanish language class or program.

The course consisted of seven lessons.

In the course of seven days, this reporter played each lesson over and over for six hours each night while she slept.

On the eighth day, the reporter was placed in a room with a Spanish language expert.  In the course of their meeting, the reporter was able to identify many of the objects in the room.  In Spanish!

In addition, the reporter was able to converse in Spanish. Haltingly, but certainly understandably.

She was even able to comprehend portions of Spanish language newspapers and magazines.  The professional linguists who were conducting the study evaluated her Spanish language skills and determined that, in the seven days of sleep learning, the reporter had absorbed the equivalent of six months of language training for a normal adult.

Other studies conducted over the years have also shown that sleep meditation is an effective supplement to daytime learning.

This has been demonstrated in multiple academic studies where students supplemented their day to day classes with associated sleep learning programs.  Their progress far exceeded the students relying solely on the day to day classroom training.

Psychologists are also using sleep meditation and sleep learning to teach their patients to unlearn bad behavior ranging from self-control issues to overeating.

Sleep learning is also proving effective at teaching children to manage behaviors associated with thumb sucking, bad dreams, and bed-wetting.

Sleep meditation and sleep learning programs are effective at improving our life.  They can improve our mood and outlook, reduce stress, cure bad habits, and teach us new behaviors and skills. Take advantage of those hours when you sleep.  Plug in your iPod and learn while you snooze.
