Question: As per the article on healthy celibacy ===There is a link between celibacy and sleep time specially when dealing with the subtle level of consciousness. Learn to balance the dual energies within yourself, called “ying-yang” popularly. Cud u kindly explain how sleep time affects .Thankyou

Thank you for your question!

Dear soul,

For most healthy males there is a period of “automatic arousal time” usually at early morning hours. Here is a chance for “unconscious” emissions to occur. If you keep the healthy habit of waking up early, let us say 3:30 am or so, meditate and then exercise, cook, etc; that time of arousal will not be there. To be able to wake up at 3:30 AM, you will need to go to bed early; which as we know is another healthy habit.

“Normal” people retire to bed after midnight. In Spirituality every hour before midnight will only increase the quality of your sleep.
Sleeping need varies according to individuals, thus; find how many hours you need and work it out accordingly.

Another unrelated advice to your question, but very important to keep your sleep time profound and sound, is to turn off all electronic devices in your bedroom. Unplug them completely. Phones should be out of your bedroom even if they are not connected to a power source. Their electromagnetic field will interfere at the time that “you” leave your body to sleep; thus you will feel tired when you wake up.

I learned this tip from a wise friend of mine. It works like a charm.

Best wishes!

    Dear soul,
    Ideally, the same should apply for women. We cannot generalize. Some people take naps in the afternoon to recharge. There are many “tips” on that. 30 minutes, 15 minutes, 1 hour, etc. It is on a personal basis. Find what works for you.

    When practicing celibacy, your diet (Satvicc) is very important as well as meditation. It is “natural” for the old sanskaras to appear and “bother” someone. It is part of “growing.” Just be aware of them during your dreams. If you can remember your dream, there is a chance that you could have been aware. Those dreams will go away as a “new sanskara” that of celibacy, appears.

    Best wishes!
