At least once a week, I’ll guide a meditation and someone in the group will fall asleep.
When we’re working in our small groups on a conference call, it can be common to hear a soft noise in the background, and realize the snuffling and sighing is the sound of a student, gently snoring away.
This falling asleep instead of entering in to Divine vibration is common, but it can mean different things.
The first thing to look at is simply how tired the person is. If you are really tired, you will go to sleep in meditation because this is what you as soul-in-body need most of all: more than a visit with your spirit guide, more than a clairvoyant view of your future, more than a message from the Universe.
The second thing to look at is what experience you have during this sleep state. Sometimes, people conk out because they need to receive a healing or alignment or download or other type of intensive vibrational shifting that can’t take place if the ego/mind is on full alert. You get knocked out, so the Universe can tune you up.
The next time you fall asleep in meditation, look at those two ideas: how much sleep you’re getting, and how much healing you need.
One of those will be your answer.
