Wakefulness and the willingness and courage to face the realities in our life go hand in hand. Sleepfulness begins to kick in when we want to block our perception of something that makes us feel uncomfortable or fearful. Lack of awareness almost always sets in when a person does not want to face reality. When we seek to block our perception of something, we lower our awareness. Fear and anger are two major blocks to awareness, and they leave our energy field vulnerable to thought viruses, which are always trying to lull us to sleepfulness.
