The Download

I’ve been noticing for a while now that when it’s time for bed, regardless of when I might go to sleep for the night I seem to wake up at specific periods of the early morning, usually anywhere between 3:30 and 5:30 am (no, it’s not to go to the bathroom…not always). This wake-up period seems to usually be accompanied by a highly charged mental state where my mind is ripe and ready to receive important insights and information germane to something I might be encountering for that day, or a new awareness of things I’ve been pondering for some time; answers to questions I might have been struggling with. Very often, this awakened state is followed by my falling back to sleep and experiencing a vivid dream that brings with it other important information and/or resolutions to issues I‘ve been dealing with. I often wake up with a mental to-do list; spiritual tasks that need to be addressed for that day, disciplines to be performed as a part of my ongoing personal and spiritual mission. If you can relate to anything I’m describing here or are going through a similar kind of scenario, you are experiencing none other than the Download.

The download is a very special period when we are keenly receptive and open to important and sometimes prophetic insights specific to our particular level of awareness and state of consciousness. In many ways it could be consider a wonderful gift; one that should not be taken for granted and should definitely be leveraged to the fullest extent. I initially found myself quite annoyed at this inner alarm going off in my head every morning, almost with clockwork precision, but I have now come to both expect it and even look forward to it, for I know that in many ways it is my personal private time with Source. It is my opportunity to both share intimate love with my Creator and receive marching orders as a conscious co-worker to what I need to be doing for that day and beyond.

We are all going through this download whether we are aware of it or not, especially during this intensive period of spiritual transition. This phenomenon is becoming that much more apparent as increasing numbers of Souls who have chosen to incarnate into this particular reality, at this important period of time are waking up to the full and conscious recognition of why they’re here; to become conscious Lightworkers. As more and more people begin receiving their respective wake up call, not just for that morning’s download, but to a conscious recognition as to why they are here in the first place, The tasks at hand become that much clearer, the need to do their part in preparation for the changes to come.

For those of you who resonate with what I’m describing, in a covert sort of way, you might consider yourselves as a part of a spiritual sleeper cell, waking up to your true purpose, to your true mission. As I spoke of in my earlier blog article, Mission Imperative, “…Your mission (should you decide to accept it) is to switch on your internal light and awaken to a clear understanding of who and what you are, Soul. You are then given the important task of helping to inform as many un-awakened Souls as possible to their true identity and assist them in turning on their Spiritual lights. In doing so, we will be able to help each other radiate the fullness of God’s love throughout the entire world.” The download is an important means to that end. It’s pretty cool when you think about it. It is within this context that all of the information and recognition of self and spiritual purpose become clear.

It is probably worth mentioning here that when you become consciously aware of what is taking place during this process, it becomes very important that you do everything in your power to make yourself more receptive to this wonderful gift. A lot of this preparation has to do with how you process the mass of information and stimuli that you had taken in from the previous day. Also, it is important how you spiritually prepare for your night of sleep. In most cases, our sleep cycle begins in the form of what is called a “cleansing dream”; a processing and resolving stimuli brought about by either the day’s activities, or even the last TV show you may have look at before going to bed. This conflict resolution dream period is designed to prepare you for more fluid (R.E.M.) dream state experiences that in many cases are not dreams at all, but your ongoing conscious activity on the other side of physical reality. I’m not going to go into a dialogue of dream analysis here, but I will ask you to ponder dreams that you may have had in the past. Those dreams that are less dream like and more like a feeling of actual waking experience are most likely the nightly goings on of you in different dimensions. Our ability to remember what we experience is important in allowing us to have more control and conscious awareness while in these respective dimensions. A dream journal can be very helpful in these instances. It is after all of this occurs, however, that the phenomenon of waking up with a clear mind and becoming aware of high energy stimuli coming from a very high source into your conscious awareness is what I’m actually talking about in this writing.

Sometimes your best ideas come during this period. I know for myself as a musician, some of my best musical compositions have come to me during this time. My struggle, more than anything else, is to get up and either write them down or record them vocally when I have my digital recorder next to my bed. This is all a part of the phenomenon of the spiritual download. If you are serious about examining this occurrence within your own experience, I would recommend a few things:

1. Do some kind of spiritual exercise before going to bed. This will put you in balance and allow your vibrational rate to already be in a good place, free from negativity and baggage from the day’s experience.
2. Keep a journal or tape recorder by your bed. Record your experiences and insights on an ongoing basis.
3. Become aware of your daily experiences from a more spiritual perspective. Are there any waking spiritual experiences that coincide with your nightly dreams or waking download state during the course of your day? What is the spiritual significance of experiences that you’re going through? Are patterns emerging that you should be aware of? Etc.
4. Review your journal regularly to identify any patterns that relate to your ongoing spiritual insights and experiences.

That’s about all for now. The main purpose of this article is for you to become consciously aware that the download exists. It is designed for your benefit and is truly a gift. I like sleep as much as the next person, but when Source calls, you must answer. Please have pen and paper ready. Good night to you all.
