Waking up is golden. I love that feeling, especially on the colder mornings, when I wake up and feel that soft, gooey comfort of being still in sleepy suspension, wrapped up in my fluffy duvet. Without opening my eyes, I turn over and curl up in glorious bliss for a few more minutes of deliciousness. This is a great time to contemplate any lasting remnants of the nights’ dreams. But mostly, this is a special time for doing some really powerful and transformational spiritual work.
When we are just waking from sleep and slipping into sleep, we are already in an altered state of consciousness that is perfect for deep and powerful manifestation. This is a great time to repeat your affirmations and positive self-statements, to send out healing and gratitude, to manifest and activate all you are calling into your life now. It’s probably amongst the most powerful times for all this work, not to mention for prayer, and maybe that’s why we traditionally teach children to pray just before going to sleep. At this time, you are conscious but also have a foot in the other world. You are operating as both your physical and energy selves combined.
My current waking up practices involve engaging with the energies of abundance in order to overcome any resisting energies of lack consciousness. This work is really, deeply about increasing self-worth and self-love, except it tends to manifest as fear of lack. Lack of money, lack of time, lack of fundamental things we feel we need to survive. It can appear in the form of addictions. The fears are often irrational, perhaps a fear of not having enough to eat when we have a full larder. So, I’m using this early morning sleepy time to repeat some powerful statements that consolidate my being in a constant stream of abundance, which we all are.
And this is also a perfect time for me to send healing out, knowing that it’s so powerful because I’m really connected and open at this time.
Currently, I’m working on a ‘re-homing critters’ project and this is one of my newest offerings. In this case, it’s rats in the attic space. When engaged in this work, I’m addressing the over-lighting great Rat Consciousness. This is the collective archetype energy of all rats. And I request that the Rat Consciousness supports the individual rats in question to understand that their current choice of home in the attic is neither safe for them nor for the humans who live in the house. I will also call in the house spirit, an elemental spirit that takes care of the house, which in this case dates to the 1700’s. And I also call the Elemental Kingdom, who I’m especially asking to support the rats in finding a safe and suitable new home in the vicinity. This activation is repeated several times in order for the creatures concerned to overcome their natural instincts to protect the nest or site they have already chosen to live in. It’s important to appreciate the enormity of asking them to leave their home, after all, it’s not something we would willingly do without good cause, so why should they?
Have you felt called to engage in some energy work during these powerful times of entering and leaving sleep?
