You deserve a peaceful night’s sleep. These comforting sleep affirmations will help you slow down, unwind, and welcome sleep like a dear friend. Get cozy, curl up, and allow these bedtime affirmations to soothe your energy as you prepare to dream away.
Do Sleep Affirmations Work?
Yes! Repeating sleep affirmations while you fall asleep will give your mind something to focus on, which will help to soothe your nervous system and settle your thoughts.
Using sleep affirmations is also a great way to practice mindfulness, which can relieve stress and anxiety that may be keeping you awake.
Sleep Affirmations + Law of Attraction
Bedtime affirmations allow you to engage the law of attraction to help you sleep. Your thoughts and feelings are molding your life experiences.
So if you’re stressed out about not getting enough sleep, or worrying about whatever’s on your list for tomorrow, you’re evoking emotions that don’t align with the energy of deep and peaceful slumber.
When you repeat your sleep affirmation and focus on the emotions that come with it, your vibration will rise, your mind will settle, and sleep will come more naturally.

Bedtime Rituals to Attract Sleep
Sleep is a sacred time for your mind and body to rest while your spirit roams free. You can honor this very special experience with a nightly ritual. By preparing your body and surroundings for sleep, you’ll signal your brain that it’s time to wind down. As a result, you’ll fall asleep faster.
Usually sleep eludes you because there’s too much going on in your mind. So indulge each of your five senses with focal points that encourage sleep. Here are some ideas to try to practice mindfulness while you’re getting ready for bed.
- Dim the lights
- Try some colored candles for ambiance
- Put your phone on do not disturb mode.
- If you watch TV in bed, only watch things that are easy on your stress levels. Think of it this way: if you don’t want to dream about it, don’t watch it before bed.
- Tidy up. Your inner world is a reflection of your outer world, and vice versa. Climbing into a lovingly made bed makes your bedtime ritual so much more enjoyable.
- Listen to spa or classical music
- Turn on a fan if you like ‘white noise’
- Download a free sleep app. Insight Timer is my favorite (I love the sleep stories!).
Aromatherapy is a powerful tool to help you sleep. The right essential oils can lower stress hormones in your body and help you feel more settled.
Counting Sheep is a warm and woodsy blend of Patchouli, Lavender, Sandalwood, and Ylang Ylang. It melts away stress so you can more easily settle into your bedtime ritual.
Diffuse, or place a drop onto the palm of your hand before hopping into bed. Then, close your eyes, rub your hands together, and cup them over your nose and mouth. Inhale deeply. You’ll notice a shift in mental chatter right away.💜
This may be a no brainer, but brush your teeth with a toothpaste you like, before you go to sleep. Any sensory pleasures you can offer yourself will help.
Did you know they make nighttime toothepaste with chamomile extract to help you fall asleep? How cool is that!
Offer your mind something to focus on with your sense of touch.
- Cover yourself with a super soft blanket or sheet
- Use a weighted blanket to reduce tossing and turning.
- Hold a piece of amethyst or rose quartz while you’re lying in bed. Your brain will enjoy the tactile interaction. In addition, the crystals’ soothing vibration will help relax you.
How Sleeping Can Help You Manifest
Sleep plays a huge role in manifesting your desires. When you’re asleep, your vibration rises because you’re not holding it down with worrisome thoughts.
Sleep holds the same benefits as meditation, because it stops thought.
As a result, solutions and inspiration flow to you with ease. Have you ever awoken with a great idea that seemed to come out of nowhere? That’s evidence that your mind, body, and spirit are in alignment.
So while it seems unlikely, sleeping can be a highly productive activity! If you find yourself having a day where nothing seems to be going well, and you’re too wound up to meditate, take a nap or go to bed early. Sleep is the easiest way to bring yourself back to center and move up the emotional guidance scale.
