The Theory of Sleep

â€œThe Dreamtime Â is not what you think it is,â€ a spirit Â guide told me about a year ago.
Iâ€™d asked if they meant the Shamanic Dreamtime Â or
sleep, and Â theyâ€™d Â been Â a Â little Â impatient Â in Â explaining. They didnâ€™t see the difference, really. Sleep isnâ€™t what we think. Itâ€™s a Â time when our conscious and unconscious minds trade info and itâ€™s a Â way of connecting Â with each otherâ€™s subconscious Â minds. Â Thatâ€™s Â the Â way it was Â explained,Â inâ€¦I donâ€™t Â know, Â Pleaidean?…some Â other Â language translated into English and none too well.
Iâ€™ve gained Â a better Â understanding Â of it in the past year.
One of the things Â I loved about the Florida Pagan
Gathering was Â my Â chats Â with Â Raven Â Grimassi Â and Â his wife, Stephanie Taylor. Raven and I compared some similar spiritual experiences that Â left me feelingâ€¦validated. You can see and understand Â something for yourself but when someone Â else can offer their insights on the same subject, it takes the experience to a whole new level. And itâ€™s Â always fun to discuss quantum Â physics and the like with someone new.
What if, Raven suggested, we in our physical form are â€œparticleâ€ and Â in our sleep we are â€œwaveâ€? Â We cannot stayÂ in Â â€œparticleâ€ Â forever, Â soÂ weÂ lapse Â into Â sleep, Â into â€œwave.â€ But eventually we must come out of the â€œwaveâ€ and back into â€œparticle.â€
This is Â something Â that Â stays Â with Â me, Â even Â as Â the weeks pass. Sometimes I feel I make more â€œrealâ€ connections Â with Â people Â via Â our Â subconscious Â than Â in Â actual physical conversation. There are connections and insights that come in that â€œwaveâ€ form, that Iâ€™m Â able to bring back with me more and more into â€œparticle.â€ In â€œwave,â€ I am Â part of that vast sea of connected Â energy, the Universe, the One and the Law of One. Sometimes physical confirmation Â in Â â€œparticleâ€ Â isnâ€™t Â nearly Â as Â important Â as what Â comes Â from Â â€œwaveâ€ Â and Â yet Â here Â in Â â€œparticle,â€ physical confirmation Â is the only confirmation Â of energy that seems to matter.
Ha! That seems to matter.
