Sleep issues
« on: January 09, 2014, 04:05:13 am »
I have been having precognition dreams since I was little. I often have been afraid to sleep and often woken completely drained and sickly. My doctor prescribed me sleeping pills and anti-anxiety meds to help me sleep better. By the time I was 18 I was abusing them to help stop me from dreaming. Around that time I started experiencing sleep paralysis (while waking) with life like visions. Thankfully I no longer use medicine to help me sleep, because during research and finding my path I was able to accept and come to terms with these experiences. Lately, I only have these a couple times a month now, which I believe my deity has helped me with. I was just curious how many other people have had these experiences and what you do to help yourself cope and handle them? Also, I know everyone goes through things differently and in the beginning they were very frightening for me. Was it this way for anyone else?
but without the dark, we\'d never see the stars.

Precognitive dreams, yes, and I began writing them down but then they didn't come up as often, and when they did they were just moments. Nothing really cohesive. Or, I would interpret a metaphor too late. So, eventually I decided that there wasn't much of a point to pushing for it. Although I've been told that keeping a dream journal is healthy, so I continue to do so. Lucid dreams are pretty cool, too.

I have suffered from sleep paralysis, and began out-of-body meditations because one interpretation said that OBE's were just like dreams and could turn sleep paralysis into a lucid dream. That was a dead end too. Or, maybe it was more of a forked road, because I still have out-of-body experiences, and I still have sleep paralysis, but always always separately. Grr!
