In optimal health, we should be running at a 10. But in individuals whose health is already compromised—our vulnerable members who are already suffering from degenerative diseases, and done so continually, the gut simply keeps getting continually damaged, suffering continued inflammation, and sending signals the rest of the body to call for help.
There is so much space between the words we speak, and in the events of our days, that go by unappreciated and poorly processed, and this is where the benefit of three cycles of good quality sleep really come into play. In the moments between the meetings and the phone calls, where we’re able to put our bodies into a parasympathetic state, there is a huge opportunity for creative capacity, spiritual wellness, and subconscious processing that is going to be available to us if are able to get that third cycle of sleep.
Our brain remains biologically active while we sleep. In fact, it demands 50% of our calorie intake during sleep, much of which goes into memory processing, storage, and emotional detoxification in the brain. When we start to disrupt REM sleep, we see an accumulation of emotional trauma, emotional stress, unprocessed emotional memory, coupled with a poor processing and consolidation of long term memory.
One such way to begin the detoxification process is removal of all forms of electronic interference, specifically coming from our devices. Since our circadian rhythm follows the movement of the sun, light interference from our phones, tablets, and laptops, all contribute to light interference which our bodies should be free of once the sun goes down in order to begin the natural secretion of melatonin to signal to our bodies that it is time to go to bed.
We as a species begin to change our macro-consciousness as we change our diet, as we change our nutrition, as we get in touch with our food chain, as we put bacteria and fungal communications back into our body
