The majority of nights since January, I have ceased to label my not sleeping as insomnia, because I realized the time is presenting itself to me, and I love the special quality of solitude and quiet. But the mind, the consciousness, the body , the nervous system do need rest. Deep meditation provides this in a quantitative way… but my nights have turned into a kind of Inter-dimensional Gateway Altered State Workshop that is some accidental hybrid of kundalini yoga, yoga nidra, lucid dreaming, prayer, meditation, visualization, communication and I’m not sure what. It’s certainly a great time, so I can’t help but recommend it, even in addition to all the good effects that have been coming from it.
Last night was an interesting marker. I hardly slept at all, and had a “blast” of a kind of kundalini energy meditation something that seemed to run it’s natural course in 45 minutes or so. I opened my eyes completely, in the dark, and thought, “It’s 4:04 a.m.” – it took a moment to find the phone. It was 4:05a.m.
I do not know what that means, but it’s kinda fun.
