Obtaining Information as You Travel
You obtain information on these planes much like a computer does, in large batches very quickly. It is also mostly raw data. It takes a period of time for the mind to first comprehend and then visualize this data. The processing of this data collected from the astral is usually done when you sleep. The result of this activity is there may be times during your sleep when your sleep will not feel like sleep; it will feel as if you were processing information. We call this state of mind, sorting. Sorting is the process where the mind takes time to thoroughly digest and categorize the information it has received, allowing it to be processed so it can be recalled when prompted by specific experiences. During these periods, the mental mind accepts information and details in the dream state and processes the data it has collected.
Sorting and Sifting During Sleep
During sleep, and through the dream process, the conscious and subconscious mind exchange information, insights, awareness, and understandings. This is called sorting or sifting. Eventually the mind has had time to thoroughly digest and categorize the information, allowing it to be recalled when prompted by specific experiences. This is usually called remembering.
But the fact of which trigger this sorting or sifting usually relates to how involved mentally the person may feel. If they are totally consumed with some project, then the information will not be sorted until a later time. This is detrimental in the fact that there will be some loss of the raw information before sorting takes place. The mind sensing this will try to indicate to you through this desire for sleep before the information is allowed to evaporate. So when you're tired, sleep.
Feelings of Exhaustion
However, sometimes you can feel a bit displaced and exhausted during these sorting periods. The sorting process can be expedited with an increase in sexual activities during these sorting times. This allows the spiritual energy to be renewed. However, an obvious contradiction may come to mine; “how can I be sexual when I am exhausted?”
Sleep Will Help
When one feels completely overcome, then sleep is the best resort, however, after sleep, as one becomes awakened, then sexual activity can be very useful. The sorting process occurs during the sleep time, therefore, when you feel that overpowering urge, then you should allow yourself to accommodate it; but in order to avoid the drug-out after affects, once you have awakened, then sex is useful.
Question: How often does this occur?
Answer: One does not regulate or control when a sorting period occurs. Nor can sorting periods be predicted. What usually happens is that a tremendous amount of information has been digested mentally but the mind has not quite had the opportunity to allow the subconscious to fully experience and understand.
