Sleep in Meditation.


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


Dear Deepak,
I have been meditating for over a year now. I mostly meditate twice a day or at least once a day. I do both breath awareness meditation chakra balancing guided meditation from your chakra balancing CD. The thing is that for a month or so, sometimes I fall asleep during meditation and my head even bangs. A few times when it happened I gave up my meditation and tried to sleep right away but was perfectly fresh when I gave up the meditation and could not sleep. So now when I feel sleepy I complete my meditation. What can this be? Moreover when I started to meditate my mind did go quiet but soon after I started I am unable to reach a peaceful state of mind. What can I do better or different? I do feel some benefits of the practice.


Don’t overthink or over-evaluate your meditation. If you feel too sleepy to meditate, then sleep. If you then find that you are alert and not sleepy anymore, then sit up and meditate. During meditation there are periods where the mind is quieter when it is moving deep into silence, and there are times when the mind is more active when the body is releasing old conditioning. Both cycles are necessary and productive parts of meditation, so don’t judge the parts of meditation that aren’t “peaceful” as wrong or incorrect.

    Sleep in meditation is wonderful! Just surrender to it and don`t worry. The word `Meditation` has become just as much a buzz word as the word `Consciousness`. We have it and it comes to us naturally. Just relax and that is already enough meditation :). You know there are many teachers but the only `right` teacher is YOU. Just listen to yourself and it is always good. But that is something people just haven`t the courage to do it seems. Someone else knows better. That has been the influence of the Media and all the commerce around it.......
