Sleep Well for Prosperity and Happiness
A good night’s sleep has many benefits. Give care to your sleep pattern and habits because sufficient and quality sleep can make you happier and more prosperous in life.
Sleep is very important. It is more important than what doctors say, because doctors do not believe in the existence of Astral body inside our physical body. It is a fact that during deep sleep a normal person’s Psyche with his or her astral body goes out of the physical body. The psyche can go into the astral world and watch whether the entity is moving on the right path in life or not. It can pass on this important feedback on its return to the physical body, to the sub-conscious mind which in turn can guide the conscious mind. So sleep has spiritual benefits as well and these are very important for our evolution.
Sleep is important because:
(1) An adequate and sound sleep every day is the best medicine for many diseases.
(2) Sound sleep and rest in night repairs damaged cells of the body and removes tiredness.
(3) Sleep gives strength, nourishment and life source.
