So recently I experienced sleep coming over me while I was completely conscious, and it was... interesting.
To describe this as best as I can I’ve got to add a little back story..
Within my third eye chakra (or.. my “mind’s eye”. Whatever you’d like to call it) there is a room. This room is usually where my “mind” is when I’m thinking. It’s also the place within my mind where I receive the most messages from Spirit. It’s basically a manifestation of what I imagine my “mind” looks like. I usually go here at the end of the day, while laying in bed, and go over the events of the day. When “going over” memories I have had during the day, I’m almost remote viewing them - I feel as though I’m separate from my brain, and I’m watching these memories being pulled from where they’re stored and almost projected like a video clip.
So the other night, while watching my memory video montage, I noticed a strange wave begin to take over. It started on the left and began to ripple across my consciousness. It wasn’t an organic type of ripple though, like water.. it appeared more electrical. Almost exactly like how old TVs looked when they were powered down. I’m talking old, turn dial TVs. When you click the knob and the power is cut from the TV, there’s a short little wave at the point of disconnection.. like the whole picture does a wave before it disappears. That’s what I saw.
This obviously makes sense that sleep would look / feel like a machine being powered down because that’s basically exactly what it is.
While I’ve experienced my body being powered down as I fall asleep, I’ve never witnessed it happen from the outside. As it began to happen I noticed immediately and knew it must be sleep creeping in. So after a moment of “whoa, that was sleep. Cool”, my conscious mind ‘layed’ back down into my body and was turned off.
But it was so interesting I had to share.
I’m curious to hear others’ experiences with sleep. Leave a comment with your story!
The Law of Correspondence
This law assumes that one can influence something based on its relationship or resemblance to another thing. It's the magical law that describes Sympathetic Magic and also influences many other forms of magical workings. It can be further broken down into two counterparts: The Law of Contagion, and The Law of Similarity.
The Law of Similarity
Like the magical Law of Contagion, The Law of Similarity governs Sympathetic Magic. This law states that a Magician can produce any effect by simply imitating it. In other words, having a physical or mental representation of a thing facilitates the ability to have control or influence over said thing.
This law supports magical workings like voodoo dolls, poppets, figure candles, and all other spells that involve assigning representation to an object to effect the thing/person it represents.
THE LAW OF CONTAGION
First introduced by George James Frazer in The Golden Bough, the law of contagion states that once two objects/people have been in contact, a magical link persists unless/until a magical act (such as cleansing, consecration, exorcism, cord cutting, or other act of banishing) breaks the non-material bond. This law is one of the two fundamental laws that Sympathetic magic is founded upon.
This is a powerful law (with parallels in Quantum Physics according to Isaac Bonewits) that holds true for non-magic believers (read: muggles) as well. For example, a person who does not believe in magic or believe themselves to be 'superstitious' might still have reservations about living in a house where murders took place, or owning an item previously belonging to a person deemed to be 'evil'.
ertility spells seem tricky to me. If a fertility spell is performed then it's highly likely that whoever the spell was done for is also actively trying to conceive in other ways as well. (These aren't the only spells like this, but just one that I think about a lot). So if / when conception is achieved, was it the spell which caused it? I mean obviously there's really no way of knowing, but the wonder I guess is what makes magic so... magical.
