Are you experiencing a lot of challenges in your life? Are you getting sick too often? Are you dealing with a chronic illness or disease? Are you feeling stuck? My suggestion may shock you, but I invite you to consider the idea that sleep may be the answer. Especially if you are feeling sleep deprived!
Sleep is not what you think it is. For generations, we have been told and we have been telling ourselves that we often cannot remember what occurs during sleep or that we do not always dream. If you believe you cannot remember, you will not remember most of the time. If you go to sleep and ask or command your psyche to remember, with practice, you will start remembering. I invite you to try this.
The body naturally heals itself during sleep. Your brain can operate on a multitude of frequencies, some of which you may have heard of before. According to BrainWorks Neurotherapy, Delta Waves are generated in deepest meditation and dreamless sleep. “Delta waves are the source of empathy and can suspend external awareness. Healing and regeneration are stimulated in this state, and that is why deep restorative sleep is so essential to the healing process.”
In a way, you die to your human self when you sleep. The only energetic difference between a corpse and a sleeping person is a pulse. During sleep, your individual consciousness is returning to Oneness (i.e., the collective consciousness), while still having a connection to your human body. When you are asleep, your psyche is most awake. In fact, it is while you are awake that you are “shutting down” and focusing on one aspect of reality. You are more awake and connected to your spirit while you sleep than when you are awake.
When you sleep, you are healing emotional trauma and energetic wounds. Your psyche is resolving problems that it cannot while you are awake because there is no opportunity to do so. Waking life is so focused that your psyche cannot use the energy it needs to resolve issues hidden deep within your subconscious.
Nevertheless, know that many wonderful and amazing things occur during sleep. You, as the operator of your consciousness, have the ability and responsibility to take charge of your life and direct your energy. Command and ask for what you need during sleep. If you are being too hard on yourself, before bed say, “I command an energy shift to be kinder to myself.” If you are experiencing an illness, try saying, “I ask the Universe to bathe my body with healing energy to overcome this discomfort.”
There is so much more to learn about the importance of sleep, how to direct energy and embracing the possibility of lucid dreaming to enhance our lives. If you would like to learn more, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I enjoy the opportunity to educate others on all metaphysical topics- especially sleep!
