Most people make plans to visit family and friends during the Christmas holidays and often stay in their families homes. During this special time of family gatherings, sleeping accommodations can quickly become an issue.
Stores are bustling with shoppers, reservation books are full and cars are packed with luggage and ornamental, wrapped packages filled with surprises.
You will also find a few boxes of chocolates, Christmas cookies and fruitcake sitting beside the wrapped packages in the rear compartment of the car.
And with this hustle and bustle comes the tension of blending our homes with more than one family. It can get a bit harried, a little chaotic and sometimes tensions can brew just below the surface if we don’t address it and clear the air quickly so that everyone can enjoy the holiday.
Recently, some dear friends came to visit for the holidays.
In order to comfortably accommodate them I offered our guest bedroom, which is situated near my outdoor porch sleeping area.
If it hadn’t been so cold, I would have moved my sleeping area further away in the yard and under the trees. But with the rain and snow that was coming, I had to stay on my porch, near the bedroom where my visiting friends were sleeping.
They were sleeping less than twenty feet away so I knew that things might change just a bit for me as I was going to be influenced during my sleep with them positioned near me.
I love how it feels to wake up in my own aura and without the impression of another person’s chemistry or the sensation of their physical condition. However, during this visit, I decided to comfortably accommodate my friends and take the risk of being influenced during my sleep.
The first night, outside, tucked warmly into my bed on the porch, I smiled and drifted off to sleep. I slept deeply for a couple of hours but then started to toss and turn. Through out the night I wrestled with my thoughts and spent a great deal of energy trying to process and figure things out. It was exhausting.
I also noticed that when I woke up my body was in an incredible state of pain. I thought that this was very strange because I was sleeping in a very comfortable bed. I usually don’t wake up with aches and pains. I usually wake up with my body feeling fantastic and my spirit rested.
This morning, I was off a bit and in terrible pain.
Once all of us were awake and moving about, I asked my friend who was sleeping near me how she slept throughout the night, “I slept great, how about you?”
“Actually, I woke up this morning with my body in incredible pain. I was surprised. I’m not sure what that is about since I don’t usually have pain in my body. I tossed and turned all night with my thoughts, too”, I responded back with a slight chuckle.
“Oh, I guess I should tell you. I have had serious injuries to my spine and neck and I am in constant pain in my body”, she said. She continued to share her story about the injuries that she has suffered, the treatments that she has sought out for healing and the challenge of living a life full of pain in her body.
Now I understood why I woke up with so much pain in my body. We both sat in our chairs massaging our necks, trying to get some relief from the pain. I smiled and carried on with the conversation feeling compassion for her as I watched the pain make its impression in my own body.
Fortunately, as the day progressed and our auras separated, the pain diminished and so did the busy mental activity that I was picking up from her defined Ajna and her partner, another Projector.
However, throughout the night as I was sleeping I felt the penetration of a Projector aura. I was very uncomfortable and not getting much sleep because of it.
Once again, I was greeted the next morning by my dear friend, “How did you sleep last night?’
“I actually did not sleep well at all. I felt the presence of our friend all night long.”
I turned to our friend and spoke, “I know that you did not sleep very deep last night. You were plugged into me all night long, sweetie”.
“It’s true. I have been very upset”.
No wonder I could not access deep sleep.
Later, it was time to go to bed again. We discussed among ourselves how I might get more comfortable with my sleeping environment. But the winter weather was not accommodating any options outside of my porch sleeping area so I settled into the same space for the night again.
I needed some kind of rest.
When I awoke in the morning, surprisingly, I actually felt better than the previous two nights and much more rested.
“How did you sleep?” asked my Projector friend who had been upset the evening before.
“I slept fantastic, actually”, I responded with a smile and a bit of relief.
“That’s good because last night I decided to send you vibes of love the entire night while you were sleeping”, he said with a smile and with a loving, warm look in his eyes.
“It made a huge difference for me, thank you sweetheart” I responded as I made my morning tea and sat down to write.
