Laks - Thanks for the reminder. Stream of consciousness is the way to go, and it's where we're all headed.
I used to have one mystic that would invite me to his conference to teach, then at the last minute say something like "Drop all your notes, whatever you planned to say, and just speak". Initially it was like being thrown to the wolves, but now when I'm doing trainings I'll have an outline of what we're going to cover but completely chuck it if the students are needing something else to shift. Having more presence feels essential rather than having more techniques.
Ssandra - Again thanks for being so willing to share - we never know how our sharing can benefit others who are less vocal about their lives. I'll give some general guidlines in case others are having similar instances, but also feel free to chat with me in a pm to get more specific about this for you. Because you're so intuitive, I have a feeling you're picking up on conflict from others around the world that is needing resolution. There is a lot of conflict, individually and collectively, that is getting resolved on an etheric level.
Are the dreams/nightmares about personal issues that you're dealing with, or other events/situations that seem to have nothing to do with you? If it's personal issues for you, I would invite you to try some holotropic breathwork with a trained professional. It releases conflict on the etheric/physical levels and you'll sleep very well. Or any kind of technique/counseling/coaching which will help you explore any conflicting areas of your life and come to acceptance within yourself.
If it's unrelated events/situations, you could simply be helping others out around the world as you sleep (i.e. find yourself in the Mid-east/Japan doing healing work, find yourself in a battle that has nothing to do with your issues, find yourself inspiring someone in another country, etc). If that's the case, ask out loud before you sleep something like this:
I call on my guides who know my heart and essence to temporarily stop any agreement I have to help around the world. I ask for complete rest and integration on all levels tonight as I sleep.
And in any event, if you were to do some conscious breathing at night after you wake up, it will be easier to go back to sleep. Sometimes a simple breath like the Mother's Breath (inhale for a count of 7, hold for 1, exhale for 7, hold for 1), will be enough to deeply connect ourselves to source and sleep again. Another example is doing a breathing pattern with a ratio of 1:4:2 (i.e. inhale for a count of 4, hold for 16, exhale for 8), we can have spontaneous OBE's. The holotropic breath is great for releasing conflict, but many times we can also fall asleep while doing it, especially if we don't want to see ourselves - so you could use this too. Conscious, connected breathing always helps.
