Falling asleep in a negative state of mind means destroying the good feelings you experienced during the day, while falling asleep in a positive state of mind means alleviating any sadness or destructive accumulation.
Omraam Michael Aivanhov is one of the greatest spiritual masters of the modern era. The remarkable psychic abilities and incredible comprehension of the subtle world helped him to develop a profound philosophy of individual’s personal transformation with an emphasis on how people can better live their life here on Earth. Aivanhov gave over 5000 free open lectures and private interviews in France, Switzerland, Canada, US, UK and Scandinavia , published over 32 complete works and 44 pocketbooks based on his lectures and traveled all over the world to visit spiritual places and share knowledge. About sleeping Aivanhov taught his followers that it is deeply connected with the subtle world and that, as sleep represents about 30% of the time spent on Earth, it shouldn’t be wasted!
“Disciples know that the way they fall asleep is very important because it is the night that determines what the following day will be. Before going to bed, therefore, they put themselves in touch with the invisible world and lay aside all their worries, cares and sorrows, all the things that had troubled or pained them during the day. They then recall any mistakes they may have made the last day to compensate for them during the night and, finally, they put themselves into the hands of the Angel of Sleep”.
Suppose that following a day you have been happy and in good mood, just in the last waking moment, before falling asleep, disturbing thoughts of sadness and discouragement come into your mind with no particular reason. The next morning you will be amazed to watch that the happiness you felt the day before is all gone replaced by the last moment unpleasant sensation, like it was more significant than the entire day. Contrarily, if following a bad day, you succeed by means of positive thinking, prayer or meditation to forget all the disturbing thoughts that bothered you and fall asleep in harmony, then this bright last waking moment will work to clean everything inside you. The next morning your body will be full of energy, good intentions and constructive projects.
Hence, falling asleep in a negative state of mind means destroying the good feelings you experienced during the day, while falling asleep in a positive state of mind means alleviating any sadness or destructive accumulation. It may happen to experience bad dreams, about culpable actions that you wouldn’t do under no circumstances while awake, you should take this as a warning about the inadequate way you prepare to sleep. In his lectures Aivanhov taught that getting ready to sleep is similar to preparing for a sacred journey which will reward later in the near or distant future, as sleep is an exercise of disconnecting from reality, switching from real to subtle world and back again, like a rehearsal routine in view of … the final passing!
How should you get ready to fall asleep?
You should anchor a good thought in your mind when you go to bed and put it to work during the night ... You should never go to bed bearing negative emotions since this will certainly affect your subconscious.
If it happens to be invaded by anxiety just before dropping off to sleep, you should not keep laying on your bed while fighting the disturbance, get up instead and do some breath exercises, say a prayer or read a page of enlightened thinking and try again later. If the anxiety returns at some point get up again and resume your effort to get over it.
To fight a negative emotion you need to be really strong, to mobilize all the resources you can find, however this is not possible while laying down on your bed … since horizontal positions are passive and draw weakness. Only when in upright position you will have the capacity to access the right strength you need to get over the anxiety.
