ACHIEVING LUCID DREAMING, SLEEP, & MEDITATION

The key to deep sleep and having lucid dreams expresses itself in the deductive and inductive mind.

I spent 40 of my 56 years as an insomniac. I would be exhausted when I fell asleep, but just as I was dozing, my heart would begin to beat rapidly. Then, lying awake for hours, the symptoms worsened as the loop of sleeplessness continued.

Then, I tried hypnotherapy, which helped me learn the difference between #lucid_dreaming, #visualization, and #deep_sleep.

Every thought in your mind expresses itself in some way. So, if you fall asleep thinking about lack, you will unconsciously create lack as you sleep. If you fall asleep in the arms of an angel and imagine financial security for the rest of your life, you are likely to sow the seeds needed in the subconscious Mind to express this Truth in your life.

Like begets Like! You cannot think negatively and have a prosperous and healthy life. However, you can consistently hold on to positive, affirmative thoughts that reject and replace the negative ones and unconsciously sow the seeds for an amazing life.

Continued from Above:

The deductive thought process is the reasoning part of the mind. When you add 2 + 2, you need the deductive processing part of the mind to come up with the answer. (Did you hear yourself say “4” in your mind?) This is the voice of the deductive mind. When you are in this part of the mind, you cannot and will not fall asleep. It’s simply impossible. So, if you’re thinking about what the day will be like, how you will do on your new job, your shopping list, worry about a friend—all of these things will keep you conscious.

Subconsciousness rest is what is considered deep sleep. To get to this part in the mind, you must visualize or dream. You don’t have to fall asleep to dream or visualize. You can practice this dreaming state.

In your bed, before you go to sleep, look around you. Find an object that attracts your attention. Stare at it long enough to keep the image and thought about it in your mind. When you close your eyes, try to recapture the image in your mind. This is the start of creating space in your mind to sleep.

To keep this simple, lets simply speak about the main two stages of sleep—(1) lucid dreaming and (2) deep sleep. When we dream, we are awake enough to experience the dream, sometime as clear as if we are living the dream in real life. Deep sleep, however, is when your mind and awareness stop communicating with your human brain. Science can only speculate about what happens to our thoughts during this deep stage of sleep. Personally, I believe we escape the confines of the body and rest in heavenly places or in the One Divine Mind.

The Toltecs have a theory about inducing this lucid state of consciousness called “Mitote.” Don Miguel Ruiz, the author of The Four Agreements speaks of a process the Toltecs call “Dreaming.” One or two people lead a group into lucid dreaming by alternately relaxing and awakening them periodically all through the night. You may have to take a walk, or splash water on your face, but you are required to awaken completely between dreams. This allows your body to awake as well, so that when you fall back to sleep, your body stays awake for a while with the brain—long enough, in fact, to induce lucid dreaming.

You can achieve this more simply by meditation and using The Insight Timer. A chime or a gong rings every few minutes to startle your body and brain functions just enough to keep your body slightly awake. As long as the body is awake, the brain functions. When the brain functions it can receive the images that are either awakened by Spirit or coming from your own subconscious fears or joys.

These subconscious images often tell a story about what bothers, angers, and keeps you secure or insecure in your awakened stage.

The Buddha says:

If you sleep, Desire grows in you Like a vine in the forest. Like a monkey in the forest You jump from tree to tree, Never finding the fruit – From life to life, Never finding peace. If you are filled with desire Your sorrows swell Like the grass after the rain. But if you subdue desire Your sorrows shall fall from you Like drops of water from a lotus flower.

What Your Subconscious Creates #relationshipadvice

Recently, I met a man who absolutely exemplifies who I should NOT be dating according to Attachment Theory. He had the swagger of confidence (for me confidence relates to control), he was muscular (a protector), he was a lawyer (a “fixer”), and had other qualities that made him fit just perfectly into that niche of Avoidant Behavior, which has been to my detriment my entire life.

(What I’m about to write takes some knowledge about Attachment Theory. If you haven’t been reading my blog for long, go back to http://findingauthenticyou.com/?p=5066 to read more about this psychological issue. Also, the book Attached. by Amir Levine and Rachel Heller is also the perfect manuscript to understand how relationship works according to Attachment theory.)

After we met, in a class about spirituality, I convinced myself that he was a good catch. Though after having a date, I realized that he was exactly what I should NOT be reaching toward. Still, a part of me held out hope that I could fix my own pattern of anxious attachment if I persisted consciously, which is a lie unless both people are aware of the problem and available and ready to fix the issue. So, I lay my cards out on the table with him in an email and simply asked if there was room for me to hang out with him sometime, because I really thought he was a nice guy.

When I didn’t hear from him for three days after the email, I decided that this was a message from Spirit that I should stop contacting him. My prayer and my conscious message to myself was this affirmation: “Divine Love draws together and holds together those who belong together, so that the glory of God may be made manifest.”

In recent blogs, I have been sharing how to create and manifest in your life. One certain way is to dream big and use your power to create from the subjective mind into the subconscious mind. But, what we have not talked about is the messages that flow to and from your subconscious without your deliberate attempt at manifesting. In other words, I believe, even though I prayed the affirmation above, I secretly wished for the opposite. The power of my wishing held much more power than the blank words of an affirmation, which proves a theory about mental equivalents that Ernest Holmes shares in The Science of Mind.

A mental equivalent is a feeling you get when you imagine something that holds incredible meaning to you. For instance, if you dream about prosperity and think about a great friend you know who is rich, easily shares her wealth, and is loving, you may more clearly manifest your dream of wealth, because you have attached a mental equivalent to your creative thought.

After the weekend with no phone call from my new friend, I had a legal issue that blew up in my face as a major problem. Of course, the person I reached out to was this lawyer friend. He immediately came to my side as the “fixer.”

As I prayed about this and sat in the silence in meditation, Spirit ripped down the walls of self-deception. I realized that I had manifested this legal problem somewhere in my subconscious mind, so that I would have an excuse to reach out again to this lawyer. It’s an ugly truth for me to share with you, but it’s an honest one.

What our subconscious thinks and believes from our attachments often supersedes the frontal cortex of the brain and allows you no access to the truth unless you become a careful observer of your own life and actions. So, I was unconscious of the underlying message my mind sent out to the universe. What I got in return was a horrible reason to have to call anyone.

Waking Up in a Fog #nightmares #revenge

Last night I woke up in the middle of the night. It was as if I were another person completely. I was vengeful, angry, and couldn’t get my mind back to peace for at least 30 minutes to fall back to sleep. Where exactly does our brain go when we sleep? Are we “out of body” or simply resting in our subconscious mind?

I believe that most dreams are metaphors representing something that bothers you in your awakened mind. To make sense of the dream you have to let every character in the dream be you. Even the inanimate objects many times have meaning. What is most significant to you when you awake from the dream is often the metaphor that needs your attention.

Let’s take my dream last night. I woke up wanting to exact revenge on a beloved person in my dream. Time didn’t fly by that quickly before I realized that the dream was simply showing me, I was hurt from the action of a friend. My reaction to the dream could have been completely different if I would have thought that the propensity for me to be vile and vengeful was the key. I played the part of the person I exacted revenge from and realized that was I, also. But the Ego would rather me focus on a way to get rid of my feelings than attend to them. If I were to believe the dream at face value, I may have considered that my feelings were justified and continued to focus on “getting back” at the person who hurt me, which only perpetuates anger in this world. We will never get anywhere, as a society, if we believe that fighting or blame is the answer. What we end up with is generating more anger and fighting.

I know that if I continue to sit with my feelings of hurt, I will eventually understand how to get over the pain and move on with my life. But if I choose to exact revenge and begin to try and hurt the person I love, because I’m hurt, I only complicate my problem. I’m sure you can see this issues as I explain it. But much harder is it when you are in the place of trying to heal from hurt.

Psychologists suggest that anger is the final stage of hurt. I would have to add my theory to this. I don’t think that anger at the person who hurt you is all that importance. I think that the anger that is healthy is the one that helps you realize you have spent far too long wallowing over the past and should move on. The anger should be at your own wasted time. This will prepare you to get on with your life and leave the past where it belongs, in the past!
