Question: How does insufficient sleep influence oneï¿½s
meditative ability and bioenergetics?
Answer: Let us consider what sleep is. It is necessary not only for bioenergetic
structures of the organism, not only for the consciousness. Sleep is a necessary
process for the brain as well. The processes that take place in the brain during
sleep are thoroughly studied by physiologists and biochemists. During certain phases
of sleep the brain is purified of biochemical products accumulated during the waking
state. The rest process of the brain consists in this.
If one does sleep enough, the brain gets ill. This is seen with the help of clairvoyance
as appearance of dark spots, which disappear if one sleeps oneï¿½s full.
I call on you to sleep properly! The sleep has to be adequate, so that meditation
can be effective! One has to view good sleep as a necessary prerequisite for spiritual
advancement! While we have bodies, we must take care of them, in particular, provide
them with good sleep!
Sleep before midnight is considered to be the most beneficial, and practice proves
it. Therefore, it is important to go to bed early and get up early. I do not know
anyone, who would be successful in our work and would go to sleep and get up late.
