Ok, a few people have been asking about the falling asleep thing, so here's my take on it.
If you're doing a meditation specifically to help you sleep, then of course it's fine to drift off, as you won't have been doing any intense chakra
or subtle body work, but working more on quieting the mind and relaxing the body.
However, when you've been doing intense meditation, perhaps working on chakras, it's very easy to leave a routine unfinished, and not close chakras,
or ground yourself properly, simply because you're too sleepy and comfortable, and it feels kinda good. This will cause you problems with
oversensitivity, hyper awareness, which isn't always good, and physical feelings of lightheadedness, tiredness, possibly nausea, and will leave you
very susceptible to picking up unwanted energy that you j ust don't want. The dreamstate particularly makes us very vulnerable.
Grounding properly, and protection visualisations are the two absolute basics that you must be able to do thoroughly, and they are *so* easy to
master. Chakra left wide open and too sensitive is just asking for trouble. Have a listen to the meditations on my signature, and although they might
not be quite your thing, they will all give you some idea of the techniques and visualisations you need, and should be doing in every meditation
session. Any queries, let me know.
