Sleep and Meditation.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


I've been interested in the subject of meditating and finding relaxation through it, however, whenever I've tried one of the practices, i keep ending up asking myself; Wait! isn't this exactly what sleeping does! Closing my eyes and letting go of all thoughts is exactly what i go through when I am asleep. I might get one or two dreams every now and then but then the whole idea of disconnection from my worries when I am awake is exactly what sleep gives me. What's all the hype about and what am I missing? I'd be interested in understanding the difference between proper meditating and a proper sleep.


Meditation gives the body and mind a much deeper quality of rest than sleep. Obviously it is also a very different subjective experience, and it is a much different physiological experience as well. This can be seen through EEG measurements of the brain, hormone levels in the blood, and cellular metabolism. But the real value of meditation goes far beyond rest; it is how we awaken to our true selves and attain our full human potential. Sleep does not give you that.

    In sleep you are unconscious, in meditation not (your consciousness is heightened). In meditation your thoughts are controlled and in sleep they are not.

    Hello, I tried the 21 day meditation you gave free online and it was great. Thanks for doing that it was a great way to begin meditation. My only problem was that I fell asleep everytime I did the meditation no matter what time of day or night. Is that normal?
