Sleepwalking - Is Reincarnation or the Supernatural the Answer
Sleepwalking, somnambulism, call it whatever you like, it can be pretty frightening. There are many reasons why we walk in our sleep.
And nearly all that you read will be scientific, concerning health, lack of sleep or even the tablets that you take every day that may be upsetting your sleep cycle.
But what if it's not any of those things?
Or more to the point, let's say, apart from those things, is there a more sinister reason why we sleepwalk?
Is science always right?
Of course, it's not just sleepwalking that can be a problem, as you will see from my story below.
There may be other reason behind this strange phenomenon.
For example, the Supernatural or Reincarnation?
Or maybe even Genetic Memory?
Yes I know that sounds rather 'out there,' but maybe now we have modern science explaining everything that was a mystery for thousands of years, we have lost the natural sciences that carried us through all of those times.
For example, Witchcraft or the old wise woman who grew herbs and flowers that helped women through childbirth. And of course all the ills of the day.
Most people believe they were women who knew the properties of flowers. But that wasn't always the case.
As science has discovered, many plants and herbs need to be picked at night because their healing properties only appeared then. Witches or wise women always knew this without the help of science.
And in the same way, now that we seem to have an explanation for everything scientific, how do we know that science has the best explanation for sleepwalking?
How to help yourself get the sleep you deserve and stop sleepwalking. A family member used something similar many years ago. Unfortunately, we didn't have this back then. Sounds good!
He can't draw in the day, but at night he sleepwalks and paints!
Lee Hadwin is called the Sleepwalking Artist. He can't even draw a pin man in the day, but at night produces Masterpieces.
Is this Reincarnation?
I nearly killed my Brother!
Many years ago, when I was just a child, I used to sleepwalk every single night. In the end, my mother had to put a gate up at the top of the stairs to stop me from falling down.
I only remember that one time, waking up in my kitchen, I was standing by the hallway door and my mother was guiding me back towards the stairs.
I turned to her and said, 'I cannot go without my hat. Where is my hat?'
I saw her laugh, and move me towards the stairs. I don't remember anything after that.
But one particular night something happened that scared me so much, and nearly gave my mother a heart attack!
She had gone to sleep and it was around 2 am. Suddenly, a mother's instinct or the fact that she must somehow have heard something in her sleep made her jump out of bed and come out onto the landing.
There, in the light from the window, she saw me standing over my brother in his room. I was holding a metal Tonka toy truck and was about to smash it over his head!
She quickly ran over and grabbed me, the truck and all, and literally threw me back into bed. Then she quickly locked my brother's bedroom door!
What the hell?
Kids or Adults?
Sleepwalking is much more common in children, than adults. 1 percent of small children and 2 percent of school kids sleepwalk at least 2 or 3 times a week!
Maybe it's because children go on to remember past lives.
Reincarnation or Possession?
Well let me tell you, that scared the BeJesus out of me!
What was I thinking?
Something or someone had taken me over and I was just about to smash my brother over the head! I loved my brother. There was no sibling rivalry, we got on very well.
And that is my point. If it wasn't 'me' or hatred, then what made me do it?
I could have killed him.
I believe it was something supernatural, possibly even reincarnation.
Many people have dreamed that they were someone else. They walk in unknown places, speak different languages and even love someone within their dreams.
When they wake up they are so surprised to find that they are in fact, just in bed in their real house.
Real Sleepwalkers - On a lighter note!
Peter Langdon 59:
'I have been sleepwalking for many years, and I drive my girlfriend mad as I am convinced the front of the house is falling off!
I constantly dream of Tsunamis, and I chased a non-existent thief along the first-floor ledge of the Barracks (in the army). One of my roommates slept with a knife under his pillow, convinced that I would try to kill him.'
Eleanor, 28 London:
'I woke to find myself in the bath holding a razor. Luckily I had only shaved my left leg!'
'Another time my boyfriend caught me foraging through the fridge looking for food for the 'man in the yellow jumper'.
Zoe Ford 30, Oxford:
'I woke up to find myself just about to jump out of the window! It was only the cold that stopped me. I also wake up screaming or shouting. I also feel that there are other people in the room.'
It gets weirder!
In the video (above) we see four people sleepwalking. Each of them acts out in a way that is completely alien to themselves in the daytime.
Strangely enough one of them gets up at night to eat. I get the impression that maybe reincarnation is involved here. Maybe she starved in her last life?
Olivia is a little girl who sleepwalks most nights. But that's not all. She talks to someone in her bedroom that is obviously not there. Or are they?
And what about sexomnia?
A partner who gets amorous and rough. Sounds scary? Well yes, especially when the wife states, 'He's definitely not the same person.'
And we see more of Lee Hadwin and his amazing talent for sleep drawing.
But there is one thing rather spooky about Lee.
Every single one of his paintings or sketches is different. Not the subject itself, but the 'hand' that draws them.
In other words, each painting seems to be by a different artist!
For over 20 years, I have dreamed that I live somewhere else. I live this other life in a town by the sea. Looking down on the town from above, I can see the old and new town. There is a lot of military activity, planes etc. On the right hand side, is a hill where fete's, fairs and markets take place.
Long story short. It's as real as it can be.
I have never sleepwalked in this dream, thank goodness, but I am aware that others have when dreaming so vividly.
I have also dived out of bed, half awake afraid that someone is after me!
Psychiatrists claim that if you dream of being chased, you are just acting out your fears.
But how much do they really know?
I studied psychology back in the 1990s. I remember sitting there all expectantly waiting to hear the secrets of the mind. Only to be told that most of the diagnosis of dreams, sleep, and sleepwalking is purely guesswork!
Bang went that idea then.
Let's take a look at what happens when we sleep.
Jump to 4 mins 10 seconds
Not dreaming can cause Mental Illness
Basically what is said in the video, is that even though we sleep, our brains do not. And people with any mental illness such as schizophrenia and depression do not have a proper sleep pattern.
Each part of the brain overlaps the mental cognitive side.
In plain English, if you do not get enough sleep, then it can cause mental illness.
But what is my point?
The point is unless we see pictures in our mind (dreams) then it can cause mental problems.
But why do we see things that have no relevance to us?
Going back to the point that I jumped out of bed to get away from someone chasing me, surely that suggests a real life humdinger of a memory?
Adrenaline is the glue that binds
I mentioned before in my article 'Are you dreaming your Ancestors Memories?' that there must be a reason for particular memories to come through. And after researching why certain memories keep on occurring, it seems that I was right about one thing.
Strong memories need glue. And that glue is Adrenaline.
Adrenaline + Memory = Dreams, strong memories and feelings.
So, surely if we need adrenaline to strengthen and glue our memories, then sleepwalking must be a strong reaction to the adrenaline memory?
In other words, something must scare the beJesus out of you to make you (me) jump out of bed, rush into the bathroom, bang against the wall and cut my arm!
(Yep, that's what I did! Ouch!)
Is dream interpretation sleepwalking up the wrong path?
I think people are quick to jump on the 'Dream interpretation' idea. In fact lots of people earn a lot of money from interpreting your dreams in such a way that they make you believe them.
'I dreamed of a Tiger chasing me.'
'That's easy, something at work is worrying you, you are being chased by a deadline and the Tiger in your dream is actually your boss.'
Er yeah right.
Who said that's true?
Maybe, just maybe the Tiger that chased you was real.
It's called Reincarnation!
I believe we need to look into the sleepwalk dreaming thing. Something is going on.
And trust me, I can still remember with horror being told I had nearly killed my brother with a Tonka Truck!
What do you believe?
Is sleepwalking caused by:
Write it down
Write down your dreams when you wake. try to do it as quickly as possible before they disappear.
If you or someone you know suffers from sleepwalking, get them to try and remember as much about it as possible. Even going to a regression therapist may just work.
