The bardo of dreams



In general, we include in the bardo of dreams throughout the period of sleep between sleep and waking (although the periods of deep sleep without dreams are).

When we sleep, the unconscious tendencies that will manifest it through dreams habits and inclinations are generated and strengthened during the waking state.

These trends plunge an ordinary individual in a dreamlike illusion conditioned by previous actions and experiences, the dream is a direct karmic consequence.

The dream world is seen as perfectly real, insofar as we see places and people we knew at one time or another, already experienced circumstances which we aspire, or that we fear, all of which are in makes extrapolations of our lives to the waking state. The dream is experienced as all-in-fact real, objective and stable, although eminently insubstantial and impermanent, lasting sometimes for a brief moment, but where we are in the dream, it never comes to mind that this dream will stop!

As in the waking state, the underlying trends that make us consider our vision of the universe as real as we lead the production of emotions such attachment, aversion, jealousy, etc.. But if our experience of the world is somewhat illusory, let alone most dreams are like the illusion of an illusion!

However, it should mention the existence of certain premonitory dreams can announce future events, or other types of dreams that are reminiscent of previous existences referring to events deep in our past. These dreams usually occur, however illusory the early morning, just before waking.

Yoga Nidra



The Yoga Nidra is a visualization technique in deep relaxation very similar to the slow light sleep (stage 1 and 2 of NREM sleep).

Hindus defined not two, but four states of consciousness: the first two correspond to the day and sleep, The third phase is the dream which they identified as a specific state of consciousness separate from sleep "calm".

Yoga is the fourth state called "conscious sleep" is the Yoga Nidra which is similar to a medical standpoint stage 1 (and sometimes 2) REM sleep.

In our opinion, this state of consciousness is very similar to what happens during sessions of hypnosis or relaxation therapy, when properly conducted. Note that it would be misleading to consider the Yoga Nidra as a true sleep state (so we read here and there that this is the "Master of Sleep").

However, these relaxation techniques developed over centuries by Tantric masters remain attractive as a means to relax when the stress and the elements somnotoxiques accompanied by hyper-arousal state of cerebral incompatible with sleep.

While we are careful not to proselytize vis-à-vis theories from time immemorial, but based on approximate physiological knowledge, we find it interesting to describe here that this practice can be called "visualization technique in deep relaxation" .
Some people may find a way to soothe their nervous system but we must not lose sight of that in the end, the only conditions for sleep are, above all, have to sleep and lie down comfortably and safe.
