Eyes Open

Do you ever feel like you are sleep walking through life? Going through the motions on automatic pilot, your eyes appear to be open, but the reality is they are not in the sense of having blinkers on, focussing only on what you need to do to get by, focussing only on your own little corner, and so in effect your world is tiny. I can relate to all of this.

Life is a great teacher, and let’s just say life delivered some packages to wake me up. Once awake there is no going back because life changes… everything changes. I began to understand life and see through much of the falseness I had bought into. I began to pick at the fog of illusion wrapped around so much in life. I began to question, and the more I questioned the more I began to see. Perhaps it is this questioning of everything, ‘eyes open’ approach to life that supported me to address (without freaking out) a phenomenon that may well be experienced by many others, but is not talked about…

In my sleep last night I felt my body start to freeze as sheer panic washed over me, which I guess is what woke me – I tried to speak, I tried to scream, but no sound came, only this small groan: I felt paralysed with fear, but this time was different from the rest, as I allowed my body to guide me with what to do.

My eyes were closed tight, not wishing to open them as I could sense danger, a force or presence coming near me – instantly I felt a knowing of what to do as I heard my inner voice say “open your eyes:” I did and what I saw was this dark blob of energy… it would be correct in saying it was an entity hovering over the top part of my body. As soon as I saw it, in that same split second it was gone. My feeling is that the very act of opening my eyes and acknowledging what was there meant that the fear left me, and the entity no longer had power over me or was able to interfere with me.

Some may find this a bit out there, while others will admit that they too have had similar experiences. For me it was very real and not the first time either. Perhaps it is time to bring it out in the open and have conversations about things that happen when we sleep, because my feeling is I am not the only one that these entities visit while we sleep. I am wondering how many other people have this same experience?

We could move on and apply this same scenario to children – when they wake during the night scared and run to their parent’s room because they saw a monster or a dark figure in their room, maybe it is time to believe them and maybe it is time to ask:

Were you that child?

And if so, is it possible you are still being visited during your sleeping hours but no longer conscious of it?

When we start asking questions, when we start to ‘open our eyes,’ so much gets exposed, and better to be open and talk about these things, because when we do not, they remain hidden and cloaked under a blanket of fear and ignorance, but nevertheless we still get hugely affected!

We do have a responsibility to start the conversation not only for our children, but also for our own inner child, for the potential of the huge healing that can occur on so many levels. Are we all not being called by our bodies to be more responsible, to really open our eyes and expand our awareness of life, of where we are at and where we are heading? If true, one way to begin is to be honest with ourselves and each other, and to question everything.

  1. ‘Do you ever feel like you are sleep walking through life? Going through the motions on automatic pilot’. I can relate to this, sometimes I go through my day and it is so busy and rushed that at the end I feel like I have been on auto-pilot. I love it when I feel steady in my day and when I appreciate moments and myself and those around me and don’t get caught up in the busyness – there is much more joy this way.

  2. When you start to choose to see what you have perhaps not wanted to see before it can be quite challenging yet I wouldn’t want to change a thing. I would much rather see the honesty of what there is to be seen than live in ignorance.

  3. Entities and such are often a taboo subject or one that is only discussed in horror stories – perhaps that is why as older children or teens, we can often have a fascination with horror stories and movies as we know there is a truth here that is not being discussed openly in society. But if this was the case and people were open about this and discussed it freely, without the fear and disempowerment, then we could learn far more and realise how powerless these entities are compared to the power we can yield being in physical incarnation (that which they are too scared to embrace).

  4. It can be hard to truly want to open our eyes and see what there is to be seen of our current world. There is so much that we do not like to see let alone admit that we can see, and so it can appear that a life pretending we cannot see or feel a lot of these things is easier to live. But living in denial does not give you a life of truth and honesty and openness to see the mess we are in. And what if part of the responsibility we all hold is to see this and accept it, and realise we are here to play a key role in reflecting back how to live in a true and natural way amongst those who may have forgotten it themselves – no different to how we were before we realised this ourselves.

  5. When we want to see all that is presented to us then it supports us to respond rather than react. The more I choose to be aware the more I’m able to foresee what is coming.

    1. Yes, it is much more supportive to see truth and then respond accordingly. If we don’t want to see truth then we waste so much time trying to figure out what is going on!

  6. A good few years back I was lying in bed and felt something get on the bed and hover as if looking at me and I just didn’t want to open my eyes, now I’m thinking maybe I should have. We must sense that these things are there but are we prepared to see them. Maybe that’s the key and it’s time to open our eyes to everything we don’t want to see because as we face our fears we empower ourselves and will no longer be at the mercy of these unseen bullies.

  7. The more we are willing to open our eyes to everything in life the easier it is to stay present in our body and deal with whatever is before us.

  8. There is very little, in fact, no conversation about entities in life. Creating doubt in what we know we have felt is the norm in today’s modern culture, so therefore, we lose touch with our capacity to feel all of life around us. We become unaware of that which is running us and we become unaware of that which is who we are. With that we think that we run and control our lives. There is that saying that ignorance is bliss, but in fact, our ignorance is keeping us in the dark.

  9. I got visited a lot as child by entities.
    Now later in life studying with Universal Medicine I became aware how my night can also be claimed by me same as the daytime.
    If we claim our body And feel our love no entities can sustain.

    1. Yes this is good point Sylvia. The more we claim mastery of our life the more difficult it is for these entities to play with us.

  10. A family member had what was for her a terrifying experience when she was asleep and the experience affected her for months afterwards and even now they sleep with their light on at night. Why is it that as a society we seem to deny such beings? When I was a child and was regularly visited by entities my entire family disbelieved me they said I was making it up. Now they know that there are such things as discarnate beings that visit us to scare us just because they can. For the majority of the time we do not talk about what we experience. If we did they would not be able to affect us as they work off fear but we wouldn’t be frightened of them and we would expose them for what they are cowards and bullies.

  11. I can feel when I am on auto-pilot in life and don’t like the way I am or how I feel when I do. Unfortunately when it’s happening I often am numbed to feeling it and its only when I stop that I get to feel the effects.

  12. It is interesting to consider the things that we can be afraid of – be it a madman with an axe, or an unseen force that we are anxious might get the better of us. Either way good to be looking at going forward.

  13. It is so true once we start to see the truth of things there is no going back, and what I am finding is that I don’t want to go back with my head under the sand. I want to see all the falsity, lies, corruption, abuse… the list goes on… I want to see it because I can feel how it has destroyed everyone including myself by choosing to ignore it and be an enabler. I still have moments where the comfort of not being seen is strong but I am cutting the ties day by day and can feel the enormous freedom in seeing what is truly there to be seen and not reacting to it.

  14. We all feel energy and sometimes more strongly than others. The examples given here are very normal, if we’d openly acknowledge the existence of another form of reality we would have a far more honest relationship with the tangible and solid aspects of life.

  15. To truly open our eyes to all that is going on and what we really feel is a whole way of living that brings awareness, understanding, and our true purpose of life to unfold.

  16. ‘And if so, is it possible you are still being visited during your sleeping hours but no longer conscious of it?’ Great questions. To become aware and admit any of this requires us to acknowledge there is more to the world than our eyes can see. And once we do that then we start becoming open to life being more than going to work just to earn money for the nice holidays or doing good or surviving. I can see why I was told as a child I was just having bad dreams or when awake and seeing spirits I was told I must have been asleep ( I so wasn’t!!) Because to entertain what I was saying as true would have meant the adults turning their world upside down.

    It’s only now, as an adult, do I have friends who are not afraid and remain unfaltered by what is unseen. This in itself gives me strength to stay present in the face of what is unseen. As a child adults not acknowledging what is really happening left me feeling alone and frightened. I don’t have to remain that way..

  17. Through the inspiration of Universal Medicine presentations I have started to become more and more honest about my life and where I am at. It is a great gift to give yourself as often we try to be ahead of ourselves when we could really just be ourselves, accept where we are at, and then see what happens from there.

  18. It is rather disturbing to admit that we so readily discount the clairsentience of a child the way we currently do in our society, as in truth what is presented through their expression is a stark unadulterated reminder of the fact that the world we live in is energetic in nature first, before anything comes into form that we the can see and touch. I agree that we need to talk about it more in everyday conversations and equally so fostering this quality in children so they grow up knowing and understanding everything that life is about.

  19. I agree with you Jacqueline Life is a great teacher, however for most of us we are not awake enough to fully appreciate what we are being shown. Once we start responding to the messages and wake up to the reality of life then there is that choice to remain awake or fall back asleep using the many distractions at our disposal.

  20. Thanks for sharing this with us Jacqueline, I had these fears in the night as a child but never related it with entities or an energy that was trying to grab me, maybe quite naive but like you say we have to open our eyes to truly get what is going on in the world of energy. I still can have these recurring paralysing ‘dreams’ where I could not move or make a sound. The last time at least I could scream but for sure next time I will open my eyes.

  21. No matter if we want to see or not, energies are all the time all around us. So it is better choosing to see and feel them through surrendering with your body, instead of getting surprised by them.

  22. What I find most crucial in your sharing Jacqualine is the surrender you exhibited inwardly which allowed you to have the strength to deal with what you saw without reacting to it.

    1. This is a great observation Joshua. It is the allowing of the surrender to the body that supports us with a much deeper accpetance of ourselves, and the connection to an inner knowing that we are so much more powerful than any energetic force that may try to pin us down or scare us into thinking otherwise.

      1. I agree Sandra. From my own experience since building a deep connection with myself and healing my hurts I no longer see these forces on a daily basis, seen as shapes, figures, animals. When I came to Universal Medicine from which building a loving relationship with myself my ‘visitors’ as I called them, often standing by my bed, sometimes hovering over me and trying to pin me down, stopped coming. The stronger I became the less they came. I can feel they are still there but they do not affect me like they used to. They are real and they are there, to listen to what our children are telling us is so important and not to dismiss this fact in life.

  23. Threats of all kinds are very powerful when they resonate in us and we submit to them. They look pathetic when called out. A short story told about a German during Nazi times who took great delight in phoning people in the middle of the night saying ‘Flee! All is lost.” and seeing them leave their homes immediately. This went on until somebody asked back “Who is this?” – leaving the caller speechless and very afraid himself.

  24. Children are sensitive and see things – and adults alike can still hold onto this sensitivity, or perhaps have re-vived it later on in life…There is so much more to what the physical eye can see and even then with the physical eye alone we can miss so much. The real question as mentioned previously is how much are we willing to actually see?

  25. It is so true that we can walk around with our eyes open, and yet not see all that there is to see. We can be selective in terms of what we are willing to see and open to seeing in this world and this exposes the fact that it is us who choose to not see the whole picture…perhaps we feel that we would not be able to handle the truth of what was there actually to be seen? And yet there is a saying that says that we are never given what we cannot handle, so perhaps the same is true here too that what we see we are actually capable of handling with the inner strength that we all have inside that comes from our connection to our essence.

  26. I have always felt I was living in a continuous nightmare, it is only since meeting Serge Benhayon and taking part in the workshops of Universal Medicine and listening to the presentations, that I have been able to understand that what I have been feeling for years is undeniable, but there is something I personally can do about it. And that is to appreciate what I instinctively knew as a child that we come from the universe the stars and the nightmare is that we do not live who we truly are.

  27. Opening our eyes to the bigger picture of all that occurs in, around and to us, allows us to come to know that there is nothing greater or more powerful than the light we each carry within us.

  28. What a beautiful powerful expose and so important for us to open our eyes and question everything. I love this blog, its very strong and honest. What else would we want to read, there is not much of truth on paper online nowadays.

  29. Yes, I was one of those children. I had so much fear of going to sleep at night because of what I could feel in my room and crawling over my bed at night trying to get me. I remember how frightening and very real it felt. So completely agree we have a responsibility to start to listen to our children and ask how they are feeling and listen to what they are saying. As Lucy shared even if we don’t understand it don’t brush them off.

    1. I also had the feeling that something was wrong as a child though I didn’t experience it in such detail. I didn’t accept it until I was 21.

      1. I can not recall any ghosts but a huge anxiousness, when I was in the dark. I often went to my parents bedroom to retreat but I was not supported in expressing what I actually felt. Imagining that would have been the case, I would have probably kept my sensitivity and clarity of feelings and expressing ME much differently when I grew up.

    2. What a huge difference it would make for our children if we were to teach them all about energy and that there is more to us than our physical body, but as I wright, children already know this, but they do not get confirmed in their feelings of all they are feeling and seeing. We then enter adulthood, long forgotten about our clairsentience.

  30. Life is most certainly our greatest teacher and so much more so if we are willing to walk with our éyes & heart open.

  31. I remember as a child being terrified that something would get me and had a ritual where I would have all the covers drawn around me to keep things out, it was very real and I knew back then there were things around me even if I didn’t quite see them.

    1. Same here Monica – I actually remember how I knew I had to jump into my bed or jump out of it and be very quick in case something tried to grab my leg if I was too close the the bed. I used to hate getting in and out of bed because of this.

  32. Reading this I can feel how easy it is to get busy and caught up in issues and to forget about the bigger picture – getting caught up in our own little corner. I love that you have shared this.

    1. We should in fact never get trapped by what our eyes see, as this world is a world of vibration which we sense with our whole body and not only our eyes. When we limit ourselves to what we can receive through our eyes only, we dismiss the grand scale of vibrations.

  33. The fact that we can go through life not really seeing what is going on, just being played by situation after situation, like a ball in a tennis game is how I used to feel. When I really chose to open my eyes and see all of life I realised that I no longer need to be the tennis ball.

    1. A lovely message to all David that we do not have to be that tennis ball that gets battered around by life, and all we have to do is give up the fight, surrender to what we know is true and life with take care of us.

  34. It is a case of how much do we want to see. I know there can be the tiniest bit of knowing in me of what is truly at play, and the more I listen to that – the more I see the truth.

  35. I have felt energy, I would have called them ghosts in the past, I was hounded by them when I was a child, for sure…children know that they are bothered, but when they tell parents it is rationalised as what they imagined, or a bad dream.

  36. In recent days I feel like I have lived with my eyes more wide open than ever, with a sense of more subtle awareness in all the minute aspects of daily life ready to teach me more.

    1. There were a few instances where one of my sons would sit up straight in bed still asleep and be crying and calling out because something was choking him. It was awful for him and awful for us seeing it. If I was aware of what I know now about energies around us, I would have been able to support him differently. The thing is though, we do know as we remember having these visits when we were young… and still do sense it.
