Sleep and Awakening

Just stopping by with a friendly reminder to let yourself sleep! As a Medical Intuitive, lately I’ve been hearing the same complaints from lots of people: “I’m just so tired!” “Can you believe it? I had to take a nap!” “I slept 12 hours last night.” “I’m not depressed. Not at all, actually. Things are amazing in my life right now, but sometimes I just wanna lie around on the couch all afternoon with my eyes closed.”

These aren’t people who have Lyme Disease, brain injury, cancer or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Everyone knows those folks need their rest and lots of it. The people craving so much sleep are everyday, high vibe Lightworkers who suddenly feel exhausted — and they want to know what the heck is going on. (Please don’t think that people with Lyme Disease and other injuries or illnesses aren’t Lightworkers. Au contraire! Most of them are. They just didn’t listen to the message to rest, and so Life came along and upped the urgency.) If you feel concerned about feeling extra tired lately, please take a moment to rule out the physical.

Are you getting enough sleep?
If you’re constantly robbing yourself of a full night’s sleep, then it’s no wonder you feel tired and depleted. Coffee is not a sustainable replacement for shut-eye. Find ways to nap or catch up on rest, because your body rejuvenates itself as you sleep. As long as we remain in 3D, no amount of ginseng, coffee, gaurana or raw cacao will magically and totally erase the need to recharge.

Are you eating enough high quality, raw, organic foods, fermented foods, and/or green juice?
You are what you eat, and living foods imbibe you with extra life force energy. If you do eat a high raw diet, you might also want to check the amount of raw cruciferous veggies in your menu. For some people, too much raw produce in the broccoli and kale family zaps the adrenals. For a tasty, vitamin-B filled treat, try fermenting them instead!

Check nutrition levels for things like Vitamins D and B12.
A doctor, naturopath or nutritionist can easily check your levels. Especially for vegans or vegetarians in the winter Vitamin D can run low, resulting in fatigue. B12 can run low year round. There’s plenty of literature regarding these important vitamins, and I felt strongly enough about this message back in 2009 that I had an integrative nutritionist share her article about Vitamin D on my blog. I’ve also spoken and written about B12 before, not just for vegans, but as a wider issue in our society. Kevin Gianni’s interview with Dr. Gabriel Cousens describes what Dr. Cousens has found in his years of research. Please click here for that info. I’m not giving medical advice here, but in your own research you might also want to explore the works of Dr. Weston A. Price regarding Vitamin D. Shazzie is also a great resource on supplementation for vegans, especially raw vegan children.

OK, it doesn’t seem physically related, but I’m still tired!
Right. As I mentioned, I’m hearing this complaint from people who’ve already ruled out a host of physical reasons for fatigue. Most of them don’t even feel bad. They just suddenly find themselves wanting to sleep more, and feel annoyed, judgmental, concerned or curious about that fact. As a survivor of traumatic brain injury, I do understand not wanting to sleep your day away! I spent several years needing to sleep 12-16 hours per night, plus naps, and I can’t say I ever got used to it.

The same reason I needed so much sleep after my brain injury holds true for Lightworkers undergoing Ascension. The brain needs rest to heal and rewire itself. If you break your arm, you can immobilize it in a cast, but the closest thing the brain can do is sleep — or put itself in a coma. Thankfully, I’m not seeing a rush of comatose Lightworkers, but have no doubt, there’s a massive, collective rewiring in the works right now. Bruce Lipton calls it “The Biological Imperative.” Others call it DNA Activation, the Awakening, Human Evolution, or Spiritual Emergence. Lightworkers lead the way in these changes, and the fastest way to Awaken is to fall asleep. Your body and brain can rewire, troubleshoot and activate much more easily in a sleep or trance state, with no other preoccupations like traffic, sales reports or conversation.

This process of Awakening or Ascension also involves cleansing out lifetimes (yes, plural) of toxic junk, mostly emotional and spiritual. Just like a physical cleanse can knock you over with fatigue while old toxins hit the bloodstream before being processed out forever, this kind of emotional/spiritual cleanse takes energy. Our outer world simply doesn’t offer us the time or tools to sort and heal as efficiently as the subconscious naturally does on its own. We can speed up the process by accepting it and honoring this sacred shift. We can hold ourselves in a gentle space and recognize that we’re doing some of the deepest excavations of human history. As Lightworkers transmute our own feelings of shame, guilt, unworthiness and limitation, we create viable templates for humanity as a whole.

I love how Michael Tsarion describes Enlightenment. He rightly notes that most people consider it a term for growing brighter — becoming more and more filled with Light. Then he challenges us to think of the other definition of “Light.” Think of lightening our load, putting down what no longer serves. Instead of hauling around lifetimes of junk and old programming, we en-light-en ourselves by releasing heaviness. The third dimension is known for its density. If we really intend to shift into the higher, less dense dimensions, then this kind of en-light-en-ment makes perfect sense. Our subconscious carries the bulk of our weight through ancient griefs, past life issues, and a confused sense of Self. Why not let the subconscious do its thing?!

Again, we can speed along this process by going with the flow. In our natural state, humans are already far more advanced than most of the species would seem to indicate. Old programming and the barnacles of a past that no longer matters have simply gunked up our gears, slowed our chakras, and otherwise kept us tied to Ye Olde 3D World. As Dr. Joseph Murphy so prolifically explained, the subconscious mind creates reality and rules our life. We can instruct it using our conscious mind, and the subconscious mind MUST create whatever we choose to focus upon. When we sleep, we give it free reign with no interruptions from conscious “but’s,” worries or false limitations.

The subconscious mind chooses life and it chooses to expand upon whatever we direct our attention to. How ’bout we take a moment before falling asleep to ensure we get the most out of our unconscious state? If you need to forgive someone, ask your subconscious to help with that. If you need to solve your money issues, affirm that your subconscious mind already knows how and when to make it so. If you want more intuition, don’t simply request … rather expect … dreams and synchronicities to help you expand your awareness and skills. As Lightworkers we know (on some level anyway) that everything is in Divine and Perfect Order. Even sleep. We naturally evolve in the easiest and most efficient ways possible, whenever we just “lighten up” and go with the flow. If the flow encourages sleep, so be it. Some people believe 5D living won’t even involve sleep anymore. As Frauke of Schizandra and the Gates of Mu says, “We only sleep to dream.” Enjoy this time of cocooning! We’ll all be butterflies soon enough.
