Simply put there are no short term or long term fix
A new way of being is embraced by denial , reluctance and even dodging
and that could be you or the people around you
guess that depends on location location location ... Or maybe not
The choice as well wisdom to adjust will come in time
The teething stage can be tough.
Whether you believe in enlightenment or not …
I don’t know...
come to think isnt even important
I remember going back to college
I remember stumbling upon the word ‘enlightenment ’
apart from knowing initial association lightning from sky,
or a tree struck with thunder
[this not is not a Thor - avenger moment]
my comprehension of that word, at that time, that was about it.
Imagine my curiosity repeatedly using that word
in my abysmal creative writing….
What am I trying to say to myself ?
Some newbies have awkward sleeping hours literally night owls
[ is it possible to be avoiding sleep
because dreams weird / nightmare zone]
Some very proudly gulp down entire big bottle fizzy drinks,
and not a thought, as to why?
Me I find myself mimicking sugar junkie mode
in short when am in fear state
[ usually down to some incident or another with voldermort sibling]
Or doing the night owl thing on a full moon ,
or unavoidable nightmare dream ,
which basically stills needs to be dreamed through [don’t ask/ ok still beats me ]
Occasionally I come across some newbie’s in the bookstore looking,
& finally looking into ‘self help books’ [if not the mind, body spirit books]
Re learning knowing thyself is just one,
one of many positive steps to reclaiming control
Knowing how your stress patterns
as well as natural body function fall into natural rhythms.
I only refer to zodiac moon cycles
as i find it to be sufficient
to create observational records on you stress patterns, [the causes or triggers]
body function as well as sleeping pattern.
These personal observational records upon yourself
should enable you to put into practice counter measures
Say you understood spiritual as well as physical benefits of a full moon day/night?
How would you counter measure ?
Yes it would depend increasing knowledge in spiritual sense …
and acknowledging factors that orthodox science / western medicine dismisses
without thought or consequence
So how c/would we deal it ?
My easy answers
For some of the questions asked above
Trouble sleeping due falling into nightmares zones
[this maybe viewed by Chinese psychology as a quick fix category]
Dabbing on st john-wort infused oil-
for the long winded explanation on why it works
you’ll need to read Gurudas flower remedies books
Trouble sleeping full moon night…
well you can make a marathon movie night, etc
or those more spiritually inclined can be quite profound meditation experience
if nothing else that definitely put you to sleep P
Last and by no means least,
the sugar junkie mode regardless of trigger
best to have nutritionally dense wholesome superfood
‘but simple to take/eat/drink’ on standby
Adjusting will depend entirely
upon your ability to digest information
and adapting to ever changing internal condition.
I think in relation to this note
the adaptation of the spiritual term ‘gradual enlightenment’
might be most fitting.
The gradual growing of adaptable knowledge
leads to stable grounded way of being!
