|To Sleep or Not to Sleep||From: Homeless Souls|
In chapter 13, Amitakh Stanford examines sleeping and dreaming while sleeping.
The chapter begins,
- Everyone has entered the astral world many times. It is where we travel in our astral body after we fall asleep. It is not a foreign or distant land, and although it is a place people are very familiar with, they cannot remember much about it. Each time a person goes to sleep, it is like having a taste of death, except that the person returns to the physical when they awaken.
That last point, that sleep is like having a taste of death, would seem to be an important bit of understanding that is suppressed in modern society. At what point should a child be informed of this?
The text continues with what is generally accepted common knowledge that “Everyone dreams, but some do not recall their dreams. Most people can only remember fragments or parts of them.” She states this inability to remember dreams is due to:
- a filtering mechanism that can selectively remove not only what you bring into the astral, but what you take out of it.
- In God's Creation, consciousnesses do not sleep. Sleep is an artificially imposed state that is very foreign to a consciousness…
Makes sense, however I don't recall hearing this before.
Next is stated that,
- In order to get consciousnesses to enter such a strange state, they were put into bodies that required rest and rejuvenation at various intervals.
Furthermore, it is stated that all biological bodies require rest, and the consequences of not getting enough sleep are discussed, leading to the conclusion that,
- In order to survive, the bodies must sleep. Therefore, the consciousnesses are forced into accepting this foreign state.
Another interesting statement about the dream state,
- Each time a person falls asleep, they are automatically granted access to certain parts of the astral world, which is primarily confined to the sleep world. Both those who have departed and those who are still living in the physical world are allowed visitation.
Continuing in the same paragraph,
- Many people believe that astral beings do not sleep. This is probably based on reports from astral beings who do not realise that they sleep and dream. Astral beings are unaware of sleeping and dreaming because the process is so subtle and different that only the most aware ones realise that they do so.
Editorial comments to be added later.
- We are not the body, we are the consciousness. The consciousness is not the physical body, although it is housed in the physical body and encased in the soul. The soul was created by the Conspirators to imprison consciousnesses.
- The astral body moves out of the physical body during sleep and travels to many places. However, there is always a link to the physical body, even during sleep. In other words, the consciousness drives the astral body from the home station of the physical body.
- The consciousness does not sleep - only the physical body needs sleep. It is only in the Virtual Reality that consciousnesses are in a state which is best compared to intoxication.
- Sleep is the doorway to a world of virtual realities within yet other virtual realities. The sleep world is like a world of its own with permanent and temporary residents as well as visitors. It is like a huge cosmopolitan, international centre, where language is no barrier to communication as most people communicate telepathically.
- The sleep world is a place where visitors must automatically pay a toll at the doorway in the form of energy. Energy is the currency of the Virtual Reality. People entering the sleep world have a certain amount of energy, but most of this is extracted. The compulsory toll ensures that nobody accumulates too much energy. It is like a high-percentage tax.
- In the physical world, energy is collected by everyone as they go about their daily business. The collection process primarily occurs unknowingly as people take it from the environment. People can take energy from food, other people, plants, animals and minerals. If things were just, there would be an equal exchange of energy, but things are generally not fair and honest in the Virtual Reality. There are many energy thieves in the Virtual Reality, and the entire system is based upon exploitation of another's energy.
- There are energy suckers, who are like vampires that drain large amounts of energy from those from whom they can take it. … Energy vampires can be aliens, humans, animals or astral beings. They can be strangers, friends, family members, sexual partners, shopkeepers, shoppers, soldiers, doctors, nurses, lawyers, police, teachers, homeless people, or anyone at any time, anywhere.
- Sometimes people cannot fall asleep or are afraid of going to sleep because a part of themselves intuitively knows that they will be disadvantaged if they do so. This creates a barrier to sleep. Many young children resist sleep when they are frightened because a part of them intuitively senses danger in the sleep world, but most of them grow our of this due to programming from adults and peers, which brainwashes them into ignoring their intuitive sensing.
- While one's physical body is at rest, recuperating from its energy collection of the day, the astral body enters the virtual reality of the sleep world. The astral body actively interacts with other beings on the mental plane, which is really a part of the astral world.
- What happens in the physical world and the sleep world is analogous to worker bees that are programmed to collect pollen and deposit it in the hive for the queen bee. But, at least the bees are aware that they are slaves to the queen. Being conscious of the energy pilfering process, one can minimise me pollution and theft of their energy by taking certain precautions before they fall asleep. It is a good idea to avoid negative thoughts, anger and other adverse emotions shortly before going to sleep. It is also unwise to go to sleep shortly after watching violent or horror movies.
- Dreams are entered into from time to time while people are in the sleep world. Dreams are activities that are assembled in a location on the mental plane, and played out within the illusions of time and space. The mental plane consists of many sub-levels, all within the mental level of the Virtual Reality. The dream world is a sub-part of the sleep world.
- When people can hold their awareness continuously from the physical to the other planes, they are aware of being in a dream, and can often control the situation in that dream. However, for many reasons, most people cannot always maintain a continuous awareness while in a dream state. Likewise, many people do not recall what occurred in the sleep world or the dream world. Memories of those activities are usually erased upon re-entry to the physical world. They go through a strong magnetic field that jumbles up past, present and future whilst removing most memories of what happened during sleep. What many people believe to be their dreams are, in fact, fragments of encounters in the sleep world that appear to be nonsensical at times.
- Lucid dreams are very active, powerful events that can be brought into the consciousness of the dreamer upon awakening. This is usually because the dreamer was in control of their state of awareness while experiencing the dream. In other words, the dreamer retained a certain degree of consciousness of their physical existence even while they were asleep and dreaming. The more conscious they are of their physical existence while they are in the illusory dream world, the more in control of themselves and their situation they will be. That is, when they retain continuous awareness, they are less disadvantaged when they enter the sleep world.
