Why You Should Sleep With A Bay Leaf Under Your Pillow

Since ancient Greece, people have kept bay leaves under their pillows to promote intuition and health. If you are on a manifestation journey or just exploring the spiritual benefits of bay leaves, here are nine benefits of keeping a bay leaf under your pillow while sleeping.

1. The Gateway to Insightful Dreams

Throughout the tapestry of human history, many cultures have turned to bay leaves as a conduit for gaining deeper insights during their slumbers. As you settle into bed, take a moment to seek clarity or answers in your dreams. Allow the gentle embrace of sleep to take over, and the bay leaf might just become a key to unlocking these visionary dreams. Keeping a dream journal on your bedside table will ensure you capture any meaningful messages or revelations as soon as you greet the morning.

2. It wards off nightmares

Your dreams can hold the answers to so many things. Therefore, you don’t want it to be filled with your fears transformed into scary form.

Another reason for placing bay leaf under your pillow is to ward off nightmares. Who wants to spend their supposedly refreshing moments engaged in sweat-breaking fear?


Thankfully, a nice little bay leaf under your pillow can help you avoid nightmares. It will certainly prevent you from getting scary prophetic dreams – or even just scary ones that hold no deeper meaning.

However, note that sniffing too much bay leaf before you sleep can also give you the opposite. You may end up with a terrifying version of what you were trying to achieve in dreams.

3. Aids in lucid dreaming

Lucid dreaming is a state of consciousness in which you are aware that you are dreaming. This type of dreaming can be very beneficial as it allows you to explore your subconscious mind and better understand your true nature. Keeping a bay leaf under your pillow can help you achieve lucidity in your dreams. As you drift off to sleep, focus on the bay leaf and visualize it glowing with a bright white light. Doing this will help raise your vibration and achieve a higher state of consciousness. In the morning, review your dreams and look for any signs that you were dreaming lucidly.

4. An Elixir for Morning Vigor

The puzzle of waking up exhausted, despite a seemingly peaceful sleep, can often be attributed to the unseen energies that envelop us. A bay leaf, poised beneath your pillow, may act as a purifying agent, warding off the shadows of negativity and ushering in a cascade of positivity. As the bay leaf works its silent magic, it paves the way for you to rise with the sun, invigorated and brimming with energy.

5. Eases stress and anxiety

If you are struggling with stress or anxiety, keeping a bay leaf under your pillow can help to ease your symptoms. The calming properties of the bay leaf will help to soothe your mind and reduce your anxiety. As you sleep, the bay leaf will help to release any negativity causing you stress and allow you to wake up feeling more relaxed.

6. Safeguarding Your Sleep Sanctuary

Nighttime, while a reprieve for the physical self, can sometimes leave our energetic selves exposed to unfavorable influences. The stillness of sleep might inadvertently lower our energetic defenses. Enter the bay leaf, a silent guardian for these vulnerable moments. Positioned under your pillow, it’s believed to act as a barrier, deflecting intruding negative energies. Greet the morning with an invigorated spirit, knowing your nocturnal energies remained untouched and pure.

7. Helps with insomnia

If you have insomnia, keeping a bay leaf under your pillow can help to ease your symptoms. The bay leaf’s calming properties will help relax your mind and body, making it easier to fall asleep. As you sleep, the scent of the bay leaf is said to help promote restful sleep.

8. It promotes good luck and wishes come true

Because of the shower of positivity that you get, you are immersed In good vibrations. This allows you to pursue more of your dreams. So, yes, you are capable of making your dreams come true.

Bay leaf under the pillow at night also promotes strong psychic awareness and strength. So, doing so can help you connect better to the Universe.

It is in this connection that you can more effectively communicate what you want in life. With better communication, the Universe can perceive what you want and grant it to you.

It may seem like a little fairy tale but putting bay leaf under your pillow goes beyond just getting good dreams from it.

You can find those dreams coming true in real life, as well. There are no limitations to what types of goals you can hope for.

You can manifest love, a wonderful career, or better health. But, of course, you should never wish for anything that could directly harm other people. Using bay leaf for its magical properties is inherently good. You should never mar it with bad intentions.

9. It helps with manifesting your desires

If you are manifesting something, writing your wish on a bay leaf and putting it under your pillow is another way to help make your desires come true. As you sleep, the bay leaf will help connect you to your subconscious mind and the Universe.

A bonus is also burning a bay leaf with your wish written on it first thing in the morning. Doing this will help increase the power of your intention and expedite the manifestation process.

Everybody Is Beautiful

Some people are fat and some people are thin- So What! Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes and everybody is beautiful in their own way.

Everyone is beautiful in their own way, in and out and you have no right to tell them otherwise.

Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.

I still believe that everyone is beautiful in some way and by seeing the beauty in others we make ourselves more beautiful.

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.

Everyone deserves to feel good about themselves, and if you don’t then start because everyone is beautiful.

For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it. For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it. For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it.

Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.

When people make you feel unwanted

When people make you feel unwanted, don't leave to make them feel sad or guilty, they won't. Leave because you no longer have a reason to stay. Sometimes you have to be strong for yourself. What’s meant to be will end up good and what’s not - won’t. Love is worth fighting for, but sometimes you can’t be the only one fighting. At times, people need to fight for you. If they don’t, you just have to move on and realize what you gave them was more than they were willing to give you.
- Unknown

Sometimes you spend your time doing for others and you forget you have a life too. Youshow love, you help them out at the drop of a hat and be there for them when ever you can. You put so much effort in and get very little or nothing in return. You tolerate and endure, you go back for more and you hope things will get better, but you can only take so much before you stick up for yourself and speak your mind. The truth hurts, but surely it is better out than keeping it to yourself and you are the only one hurting, then all you have done in the past is forgotten and those you loved and put before yourself, walk past you as if you don’t exist. We all make mistakes, some we learn from, some we don’t. The weak don’t forgive, that is down to the strong. ~ Nigel Williams 

Only the truth will set us free from the scars of yesterday. Let the pain go by accepting the truth & learn to face the reality that you are not meant for each other. ~ Lizabelle Guzman 

Things are not always what they Seem

Two travelling angels stopped to spend the night in the home of a wealthy family.

The family was rude and refused to let the angels stay in the mansion’s guest room.

Instead the angels were given a small space in the cold basement.

As they made their bed on the hard floor, the older angel saw a hole in the wall and repaired it.

When the younger angel asked why, the older angel replied,

“Things aren’t always what they seem.”

The next night the pair came to rest at the house of a very poor, but very hospitable farmer and his wife.

After sharing what little food they had, the couple let the angels sleep in their bed where they could have a good night’s rest.

When the sun came up the next morning, the angels found the farmer and his wife in tears. Their only cow, whose milk had been their sole income, lay dead in the field.

The younger angel was infuriated and asked the older angel how he could have let this happen? ”The first man had everything, yet you helped him,” she accused. ‘The second family had little but was willing to share everything, and you let the cow die.”

“Things aren’t always what they seem,” the older angel replied. “When we stayed in the basement of the mansion, I noticed there was gold stored in that hole in the wall. Since the owner was so obsessed with greed and unwilling to share his good fortune, I sealed the wall so he wouldn’t find it.”

When a Man is truly a Man?

A man is truly a man when he wins the love of a good woman, earns her RESPECT, and keeps her TRUST.

A man who shows respect and good manners to all at all times, will win the heart of a woman he loves and this woman will want to respect him, and if he continues showing her respect and good manners, he will never lose her respect and trust but this goes to say about anyone’s trust and respect as unfortunately many times people show respect and trust until they think they possess/own the other and the respect and good manners go out the window and then obviously respect and trust is destroyed. Show respect and trust and you will receive respect and trust as it is earned. ~ Stéphanie Carter 

A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father. ~ Frank Abagnale

If you want to be a real human being - a real woman, a real man - you cannot tolerate things which put you to indignation, to outrage. You must stand up. I always say to people, 'Look around; look at what makes you unhappy, what makes you furious, and then engage yourself in some action.' ~ Stephane Hess

True Value Of Life

A man went to God and asked, "What's the value of life?"

God gave him one stone and said, "Find out the value of this stone, but don't sell it."

The man took the stone to an Orange Seller and asked him what it's cost would be.
The Orange Seller saw the shiny stone and said, "You can take 12 oranges and give me the stone."
The man apologized and said that the God has asked him not to sell it.

He went ahead and found a vegetable seller. "What could be the value of this stone?" he asked the vegetable seller. The seller saw the shiny stone and said, "Take one sack of potatoes and give me the stone."
The man again apologized and said he can't sell it.

Further ahead, he went into a jewellery shop and asked the value of the stone.
The jeweler saw the stone under a lens and said, "I'll give you 50 Lakhs for this stone." When the man shook his head, the jeweler said, "Alright, alright, take 2 crores, but give me the stone."
The man explained that he can't sell the stone. Further ahead, the man saw a precious stone's shop and asked the seller the value of this stone.

If She Tells You You’re an Idiot

She doesn’t say ‘I love you’ like a normal person. Instead, she’ll laugh, shake her head, give you a little smile, and say… ‘You’re an idiot’. If she tells you you’re an idiot, you are a lucky man.

Lovers create their own “secret language” to express their emotional near to each other. This is something very intimate and something very special. ~ Ingrid Bahtiyar

No one has a right to judge what is said between two people on how they express their love. If it works for them, that’s all what matters. ~ Brigitte Nicole

8 Lies My Mother Told Me – A Touching Story

This story begins when I was a child: I was born poor. Often we hadn’t enough to eat. Whenever we had some food, Mother often gave me her portion of rice. While she was transferring her rice into my bowl, she would say “Eat this rice, son! I’m not hungry.” 

This was Mother’s First Lie.
As I grew, Mother gave up her spare time to fish in a river near our house; she hoped that from the fish she caught, she could give me a little bit more nutritious food for my growth. Once she had caught just two fish, she would make fish soup. While I was eating the soup, mother would sit beside me and eat the what was still left on the bone of the fish I had eaten, My heart was touched when I saw it. Once I gave the other fish to her on my chopstick but she immediately refused it and said, “Eat this fish, son! I don’t really like fish.”

This was Mother’s Second Lie.
Then, in order to fund my education, Mother went to a Match Factory to bring home some used matchboxes, which she filled with fresh matchsticks. This helped her get some money to cover our needs. One wintry night I awoke to find Mother filling the matchboxes by candlelight. So I said, “Mother, go to sleep; it’s late: you can continue working tomorrow morning.” Mother smiled and said “Go to sleep, son! I’m not tired.”

This was Mother’s Third Lie.
When I had to sit my Final Examination, Mother accompanied me. After dawn, Mother waited for me for hours in the heat of the sun. When the bell rang, I ran to meet her.. Mother embraced me and poured me a glass of tea that she had prepared in a thermos. The tea was not as strong as my Mother’s love, Seeing Mother covered with perspiration, I at once gave her my glass and asked her to drink too. Mother said “Drink, son! I’m not thirsty!”.

This was Mother’s Fourth Lie.
After Father’s death, Mother had to play the role of a single parent. She held on to her former job; she had to fund our needs alone. Our family’s life was more complicated. We suffered from starvation. Seeing our family’s condition worsening, my kind Uncle who lived near my house came to help us solve our problems big and small. Our other neighbors saw that we were poverty stricken so they often advised my mother to marry again. But Mother refused to remarry saying “I don’t need love.”

People Come Into Your Life For a Reason, a Season, or a Lifetime.

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each person.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty; to provide you with guidance and support; to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it. It is real. But only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.

It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant. ~ Unknown

I have just checked in.

How are You and the kids, The place is really nice, but am lonely here.

I have made necessary arrangement for Your arrival tomorrow. Expecting you darling. I can't wait to see you!

When people walk away from you

When people walk away from you, let them go. You shouldn’t have to talk them into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, and coming to see you, because if they really cared about you in the first place; they would not be going anywhere.

If someone can forget you and leave you just like that for one incident, regardless of thousands of good times and memories there’s no point of chasing after that person because there are people who doesn’t remember or treasure good things but keep on stacking only the bad things with hatred. ~ Aditha Rambukwella 

When someone is come to your life for reason they have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support. There are there for the reason you need them to be. Something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. And now it is time to move on. ~ Pranom Sripruk 

A True Soulmate

“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master...”

You Can Never Win An Argument With A Negative Person

Everyone has moments of negativity. What is important is choosing how to get through those moments. If you are dealing with a negative person, it takes a strong person to showthem how to be positive. Although that’s not always possible. ~ Amy King 

Negative people only read the head lines and think at surface level. They allow their emotions to guide them convincing themselves of reality. 

Never argue with an idiot because they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

You can never win an argument with a negative person. They only hear what suits them and listen only to respond.

11 Painful Things

11 Painful Things:

1. Bringing back the feeling you've learned to forget.
2. Reminiscing the good times.
3. Trying to hide what you really feel.
4. Loving someone who loves another.
5. Having a commitment with someone you know would not last.
6. Shielding your heart to love somebody.
7. Loving a person too much.
8. Right love at a wrong time.
9. Taking risk to fall in love again.

11. "What ifs"

Goodbye without reasons is the most painful one. Love without reasons is the most beautiful one.

Everyone says that love hurts, but that's not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Everyone confuse these things with love, but in reality love is the only thing in this world that covers up all the pain and makes us feel wonderful again.

The most painful love there is, is the love left unshown. A love that cannot be expressed, affection left unknown. The love that withholds touching, afraid of what it would say, and the most painful thing about unexpressed love is, it never fades away.
