Nocturnal processing

In the books by Jozef Rulof our consciousness that we experience when we are awake is referred to as the day-conscious or the day-consciousness:
The inner life must deal with the day-conscious during sleep.
And when that does not happen you are extremely tired in the morning.
Now the soul life has not been able to let off steam.
In this state, the soul is still too active.
Spiritual Gifts, 1943
In the book ‘Spiritual Gifts’, the functioning of the material body is compared to a timepiece:
If the human being cannot let off steam in his sleep, then the physical material system succumbs, that clock then runs unrelentingly fast.
It now gets too much to deal with and that is not possible!
Spiritual Gifts, 1943
Master Zelanus presents the reader of the book ‘Spiritual Gifts’ with a puzzle:
You live in it every second of the day, you do something because of it or you are given something because of it, then your life is fulfilled.
Spiritual Gifts, 1943
Guess what it is!
I repeat, the soul must let off steam during sleep, or the material body would succumb.
Nature takes care of it!
At the age of one the child would already succumb, since the soul life could no longer bear the experiences gained.
Now, how is it at an adult age?
That is weight, which you cannot even calculate, and is still carried unnoticed in your inner life.
The soul – I am coming closer and closer – makes up its own balance.
Can you already feel it?
The soul lives because of it and sleep gave it this great mercy.
Anyone who is not in the fourth grade of sleep cannot let off steam and the soul therefore holds onto all its burdens of the day, stimulating the already exhausted nervous system, which the material disturbances let you know.
You will soon visit a neurologist, because your nervous system is broken.
My dear reader, it is your subconscious!!!
Spiritual Gifts, 1943
The subconscious is represented by the deepest grades of sleep.
During our life on earth, we are not conscious of these grades.
At the most we experience the third grade of sleep, that is the state in which we dream.
In the fourth grade of sleep we already sink away into a dreamless state, which ensures that we can then wake up completely rested.
Your subconscious already takes care of the overload and because of this the soul is completely freed from its own burden, or succumbing will be close-by.
This is why your neurologists cannot establish the most common disturbances, however learned they act.
They must descend into that subconscious if they wish to make a clear diagnosis and determine where the actual pressure lies.
The soul has this in its hands.
They can establish that you are sleeping poorly, but how can the academic descend into sleep?
Where the disturbances lie and live, no medicines help; they cannot remove the cause. Astral knowledge is needed for this purpose.
People can still not give you this research on earth, because the academic claims that this life is the first for the soul!
However, for us – or there would not be any subconscious – the following life, the reincarnation.
The inner life lives in this; the soul entered its own kingdom here and must accept the subconscious, that the last and the highest represent the sixth and seventh grade of sleep.
Spiritual Gifts, 1943
In the deeper grades of sleep, the subconscious takes over the burden from the personality:
Between the fourth and the fifth grade of your sleep lies the balance between material and soul, it is here that the soul lets go of its lumbering and sinks away into the vast subconscious, to still continue to be part of your life.
This centre of balance therefore has great significance for your life. Even if it takes place outside of your own thoughts, this is still the spiritual balance for both organisms, the scales, given to the body by God.
This lumbering must be thrown overboard, or you will collapse.
These last three grades of the subconscious take it over from the personality and keep it for you.
Spiritual Gifts, 1943
Letting go of experiences can only take place outside of our consciousness:
However, if you are overloaded in the day-conscious life, then these three grades come to your aid while you are sleeping; this happens outside of your own conscious thoughts and feelings, or you will hold onto it.
That must therefore take place in your sleep.
Those grades ensure that the balance between soul and body survives. They watch out for the collision of the day-conscious self and the subconscious.
These grades of sleep are the light in your eyes, are the intuition for the inner life and the sensitivity for the spiritual gifts.
Spiritual Gifts, 1943

Feeling and day-consciousness

In the day-consciousness, we also experience our subconscious:
That subconscious, the people think, you will never experience that.
But subconscious is day consciousness.
If the child begins, then that child already had feeling, and this and that, and already does something, already knows something.
Just like a duck; that goes into the water.
But the human being who awakens for a moment, a child grows up, and you see the phenomenon.
That would ...
Look, that would have to go back millions of ages, eras, because where was the first feeling built up?
What was the first experiencing for the soul as divine spark?
Questions and Answers Part 4, 1952
We draw our feeling from our subconscious:
We know this subconscious, for we once lived in that reality, it is the sum total of the lives we have experienced.
What is subconscious?
Do I still have to explain this?
Feel your own depth, your inner life, the feelings that are within you.
The Origin of the Universe, 1939
That can be from many lives at the same time:
But, you will feel, you carry the feeling, the consciousness of twenty, thirty lives with you.
They are conscious.
Questions and Answers Part 6, 1951

The tip of the iceberg

“What does that life look like, what is subconscious?”
“It is the life for the soul, I already told you.
That is subconscious, in which all your lives are to be found and as a result of which you represent a universe.”
“Can you descend into it?”
“I am connected to it.”
“What does it look like?”
“What it looks like here?
The life, in which I am now, lives on the surface of this world.
You can feel this comparison.
All my previous lives, thousands for this world, are part of this conscious.
And you call it subconscious; I find every thought in all those lives materialized, here.
I see, I feel fatherhood and motherhood, laws of life for the organic existence, those for the body, all the material laws, experienced from the jungle, also those of the universe, in this subconscious and it is part of my day-conscious feeling and thinking.
I have experienced thousands of lives, as a result of this I built on my personality.
The life of now closes the subconscious off for the personality.
Masks and Men, 1948
