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. It’s odd isn’t it that we have a vast array of books that we can read on the subject, there are many films, t.v. programs based on the subject of ghosts and ghouls etc, our history is littered with them, and yet we still really don’t want to admit that these things exist along side of us. I wonder what it is we are in denial of.

  2. I keep realising how much we actually have our eyes closed or see through our own, self-created glasses. Everything that we see & percieve goes through our lenses, if we are protected, we will always think people are out to get us. If we are fearful, we will always think somebody is going to attack. Some people say that we attract things because of our prayers & so on, but what if we things happen to us as a result of our perception? For example, if you held the perception that you attract needy men because you are needy yourself? So whenever you receive a compliment from the opposite gender, instantly you react and think to myself “here we are again, another needy one” so you distance yourself & cut off all communication. But what if these men are not needy, but genuinely mean the compliment they are saying? What if they have seen something and it is only natural for them to say it? And if so, what if this whole time you have perceived something in the completely wrong light and used your blinkers to shut off the love of those around you?

  3. Unseen energies lose their hold on us the moment we realise they are there and can describe them and possibly name them for what they are. This is power in itself and a form of power that we often neglect to activate, and yet it is one of the the greatest assets we can develop to support our own growth with awareness.

    1. I have found this to be true Henrietta as recently I woke up from a deep sleep to be aware of a tall grey shadow standing in the doorway of my bedroom. I clocked that it was there and went back to sleep again. Now if that had been me in my childhood I would have completely freaked out and have been wide awake in fear in an instance. So we can grow and support our awareness so that these unseen energies no longer have any power over us.

  4. It takes a lot to be truly willing to see all there is to see in our world – to be willing to see all that can be seen physically but also to be willing to see all the unseen too.

  5. This just goes to show in how not to have fear but instead build a relationship with ourselves where we can be claimed and present in our body and attuned to our innermost, its powerful stuff! ❤️ And listen to what our body is telling us, something I am learning more and more in that our body is literally our best friend.

  6. ‘I am wondering how many other people have this same experience?’ Probably far more than who are willing to admit incase of judgement from others or looking foolish. The more we discuss it, the more normal it becomes as part of our daily awareness, the more we can deal with it.

  7. “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” – this is very powerful and applicable to anything in life.

  8. No matter what comes in the way our body is a powerful tool of healing capable to deeply support us in whatever situation we may be in. It knows what to do, how to hold us in a very beautiful way.

  9. It takes courage and honesty to bring up a topic like this. We all once or several times in our life have experienced the cold feeling of fear but not so many are capable to admit it. It seems like expressing how we really feel is for the weak ones and to cope with life we need to be tough. However being aware, feeling vulnerable and admit it is the most empowering choice I’ve ever made, for opens me up a space where I can let go what no longer supports me and step up. Living with my eyes open take me away from the ignorance, the arrogance and the pride about ‘all is good’ when in fact not.

  10. Jacqueline what you reveal here is quite powerful, the fact any darkness can’t longer exists or affects us once we open our eyes and be aware of it. This can be applied to everything in life that makes us feel tight or fearful…this kind of feelings are not coming from love and it’s our responsibility to be there, present, moment by moment, allowing our body to clear and let go the stuff we once let in.

  11. To question everything in life is a healthy approach to live. To give ourselves the space to pause and reflect on a situation, event, something another has said or done offers an opportunity to bring a greater awareness but not just to ourselves but to everyone concerned.
