I thought I'd start a new thread for this, I didn't want to hyjack the dream trouble thread.
I'd like to talk about something I don't yet have a name for - or at least I haven't run across a term that discribes this as of yet.
I'll discribe this to you all, and hopefully others experience the same thing and we can try to figure out just exactly what happens during this
First - I don't know if it's a sleep state or not. I wouldn't say there is any dreaming going on.
This state seems to be not sleep, yet not awake. Time seems to not be an issue, and there is no memory of anything that might be drempt, thought
about or seens during this time (seemingly no mental chatter going on, no thought process - or at least nothing is remembered).
For me, I noticed these times only because I'm a clock watcher. That, and I can only fall asleep in a certain position. I lay on my back to do
energy work, meditate and other mind/body/spirit things jst before I go to sleep (it helps me sleep - I was an insomiac for many years).
I noticed that there are alot of times when I lay on my back, do my energy work or meditate etc and am not sleeping, that I drift into this state of
nothingness it seems. Hour can go by, and when I look at the clock I am stuned thinking that only minutes have went by. (I know I'm not asleep
because I am still and not snoring. LOL If I fall asleep on my back I hurt, move alot and start snoring almost immediately (my husband tells me, and
it actauly startles me awake too. LOL)
Now there are times during this ??? that other things happen. This is usualy the way it happens when I am visiting a loved on already passed over or
seeing something pertaining to someone I care about that is alive etc. But the complete viod of anything is what I'm interested in here. Those
times when there seems to be nothing filling that time (or I don't have any memory of it at least).
Also - there are also different sleeps. There are occations (not ner as many as I'd like) that I sleep so completely and totaly that it amazes me.
Now from the way others discribe how it feels to them to sleep and how they feel when they wake up - it may be just that those rare occations are
actualy just normal sleep and I'm not use to that.
