our physical being awake

The day-consciousness is the consciousness that we possess when we are physically awake.
By Ludo Vrebos, based on the books by Jozef Rulof.


In the books by Jozef Rulof day-consciousness refers to: the consciousness that we possess when we are awake.
We are then aware of the surroundings which we perceive by means of our senses.
With this consciousness, we experience the experiences of the day.
In this consciousness, we are also conscious to a certain extent of our own inner world, our feelings and our thoughts.
If our life of feeling has something to say, then it pushes up the feelings to our day-consciousness and we can consciously express those feelings and act according to them.
We can also experience something of our past lives in our day-consciousness.
For example, we see something on television and think: ‘Hey, I know that!’
At that moment the African, American or another life can be conscious in us, at that moment the past life that we experienced there is part of our day-consciousness for so many percent.
That can be very fleeting, but also permanent in the form of an aptitude, talent or gift.

Recovery of day-consciousness

When we go to sleep, we gradually discard this day-consciousness.
We become less and less aware of our surroundings, until we have fallen into a deep sleep.
In the sleep the tension which has occurred in the nervous system by means of the experiences during the day is discharged.
During the sleep the soul analyses what has entered the life of feeling, and by means of dreaming, what has no value goes overboard.
Those dreams serve to restore the day-consciousness, in order to be able to gain new experiences the following morning, day-conscious and well rested.
During sleep, the soul can better ensure her rest and harmony than during the day-consciousness.

Beyond the day-consciousness

Sleepwalking shows that the human being can also act outside the day-consciousness.
At that moment, it is important not to touch or to disturb the sleepwalker in his actions, because that could cause a nervous shock.
For that matter, while sleepwalking, the human being does not act in the day-consciousness, as a result of which he has no resistance to events which take place outside his consciousness, such as the touching of his body.
During his leaving the body, Jozef Rulof experiences that he can also feel, think and act outside his day-consciousness in the hereafter.
The term day-consciousness is therefore only used in order to indicate the consciousness in the physical existence on earth.
However, the soul has an eternal consciousness which transcends this one physical life.
