I started the day today in one of the best ways… with a Sacred Cacao Smoothie! I already a BIG realisation before I’d had a couple of sips.
So, I’ve always been fascinated by the subject of SLEEP…. when I was a professional alternative healthcare practitioner, I specialised in insomnia.
It’s a fascinating subject. I kept up to date with tests by The Sleep Institue in Cali – apparently 6-7 hours is best for us, not 8 as everyone thinks & sooo many other facts and research results which blew my mind!
Even though sleep and dreaming is something that’s always fascinated me, I’ve always been really lucky with my sleep patterns. Recently though, it’s up for my focus as I’ve got no idea if I’m a morning person or a night person… I can sleep for 3 hours and feel amazing, or I sleep a ridiculously long time (sometimes 10/12 hours) and I feel super guilty and even shameful….
With all the solar flares & raising vibration of us & the planet everything is changing!
I LOVE when I’m up at dawn or before – I totally adore that space; as Rumi said:
“The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you
Don’t go back to sleep!
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep!
People are going back and forth
Across the doorsill where the two worlds touch,
The door is round and open
Don’t go back to sleep!”
Often I, and many others only sleep for 2/3/4 or so, hours per night. I LOVE those nights (so much I’ll say it again lol)…
However I have been giving myself a v v v (!) v hard time if I sleep for more than 8 hours. Crazy eh!?
I pat myself on the back & beam with joy when I have little sleep – but I have a tendency to beat myself up if I feel I’ve slept “too much”.
I’m just sharing this because it just became soooo clear to me this morning that NONE of it matters. What DOES matter are the stories we tell ourselves. How we’re talking to ourselves, what we’re “making up” about whatever is going on.
When I sleep for 3/4 hours I’m a genius, but when I sleep “too much” I’m lazy, a failure, not good enough blah blah blah. You get the picture. So that’s the kind if day I create for myself… I’m not productive, I don’t approach the day with my usual zest & joy.
So there you go. A few sips into my (Sacred) Cacao Smoothie, having set the intention to get clarity on this – and hey presto, I know I’ll never enter that same space again.
I ‘knew’ all this stuff logically, but with Cacao I get stuff – in my Heart, my Soul, in my entire being…. And it changes my life from there on in. WoW!
Happy festive season y’all!
