Walking Asleep Dream

walking asleep

In the West is the place of introspection and intuition, the substance of this wheel. It is the Walking Asleep Daydream. We recognize this type of a dream walk when we eat too much, drink too much, do drugs, breathe improperly, and have little or no ceremony within our life. We become like “Zombies.” We are often at the effect of our substance, our environment. This is the Shideh’s attempt to control the day-to-day awake, yet “unaware,” conscious mind. We walk around without knowing who we are and what the purpose of life is, inflicting our limited view of reality upon ourselves, the planet, and others. The lights may be on in our house (body), but no one is home. We are out of alignment with our substance, our body, and thus cannot live a centered or awake life.
