Healthy sleep

The world of the unconscious is the world of connection where the human being as soul goes to in order to be born again on earth.
This world is called ‘the world of the unconscious’ because the conscious memories from the previous life fall asleep here:
This is why this is the world of the unconscious.
The soul which comes back to earth is not conscious of its previous life.
The Cycle of the Soul, 1938
The world of the unconscious can be considered as a deep sleep:
He received a new material body, but his soul life was not changed in any way, this had slept all that time in the world of the unconscious.
The Peoples of the Earth, 1941

From memory to feeling

All the experiences from the previous life sink into the deep inner self of the soul:
Life of the soul, however, came to rest, and all that life and its experiences sank back into the inner self, only to be attracted later.
That is the explanation for the long period of waiting for a new birth.
The Origin of the Universe, 1939
The experiences become feeling:
Also there where consciousness has developed, I mean man on earth, inner life needs that long sleep to dissolve its experiences, but the inner enrichment remains and that is the inner life.
This explains at the same time why man cannot remember anything of his previous lives; this is given only to very few people on earth.
The Origin of the Universe, 1939
Master Alcar allows André (Jozef Rulof) to experience how it feels to stay in the world of the unconscious:
You will feel that now, André, take care and concentrate on me.
Sit down, André.’
André did, as Alcar wanted.
He sat down and felt sleep overwhelmed him.
He looked at his leader and Alcar said: ‘Do you feel sleep overwhelming you, André?’
‘Yes, Alcar, very clearly.’
‘I have connected you with this world and I can do so, because I experienced that.
Is this clear?’
‘Yes, quite.’
‘Very well, I’ll connect you completely and you will feel what this world actually is and means.’
André felt himself sink away still deeper, so that he became fully unaware.
He subsequently felt himself regain consciousness, though that mysterious power detained him.
He heard a voice as from far away say: ‘Do you hear me, André?’
What was that?
He heard someone whisper his name, but he did not understand what it meant.
Again he heard: ‘André, do you hear me?
It is me, your leader and ...’, then he did not hear any more.
He did not know how much time had passed, when he woke up and opened his eyes, he saw Alcar.
‘Where are we, Alcar?
How did I sleep!’
‘We are still in the same place and have not been away.
What did you feel, André?’
‘Sleep, and yet it wasn’t.
It was as if losing consciousness, something like that, Alcar.’
‘Did you hear me speak?’
‘Yes, but not clearly, it was very faint.
As if from a great distance.’
‘Do you know now what this world means?
You did not even know any more where we were and you did not clearly hear me speak and yet I spoke very loudly.’
‘I wanted to listen and it seemed as if your voice stopped and I sank away.
Is that possible, Alcar?’
‘Yes, that is correct, and you have only been in that world in an unconscious condition for a few seconds as compared with several centuries or even longer for others.
The soul is finally attracted and will be born on earth.
A blissful quiet resides in this inner life, it is not aware of anything any longer.
The Origin of the Universe, 1939

Gently steering

It is very important that the soul relaxes completely, in order to be able to inspire the new embryo from that silence:
That rest is necessary, for if this inner life would be conscious, as I told you, it would suffocate the embryo into which it descends and destroy the foetus.
The Origin of the Universe, 1939
For this purpose, the adult consciousness from the previous life must fall asleep:
As an adult conscious the soul cannot descend into the mother body because the soul crushes the foetus to death, since there is now too much inspiration.
Spiritual Gifts, 1943
At that moment, the soul may only be attuned to the small cell:
Do you feel, that is discarding, the completely discarding of the consciousness, the being free, the becoming free, the thinking and feeling of one law: the birth.
And we then became a spark, a small trivial cell.
Lectures Part 2, 1951
For this purpose, we must discard the human thinking and return to the first stage of thinking.
During our life on earth, we think about a great deal of matters, but not for a new birth, that is a very different type of thinking:
If the human being enters a world in order to be attracted again, then you are in the first stage of thinking, for what?
Madam, you are now thinking humanly.
But you are not thinking for the birth.
Questions and Answers Part 4, 1952
The personality of the soul thinks only for the birth in the world of the unconscious, and at one hundred percent:
That personality thinks at a hundred percent, as an embryo, for the birth.
Questions and Answers Part 4, 1952
The soul is the life as a result of which the embryo starts to grow.
Even in the world of the unconscious, we are not without feeling, as soul we are eternal working:
Otherwise the foetus would flow away and you would get a bleed.
If that life no longer thinks, madam, then the life will flow away like that.
But there is never a standstill.
The human being is never without feeling.
We are eternal quickening.
Questions and Answers Part 4, 1952
People could also call it ‘the world for the reincarnation’.
If you must return to the earth, then you enter the world for the reincarnation; we call that the world of the unconscious in the books, the world for returning to the earth again.
Questions and Answers Part 6, 1951
From the beginning of creation, the soul reincarnates from the world of the unconscious.
As the new body grows, the consciousness that belongs to the development phase of the body will awaken again:
And do you also feel that this has been so from the beginning of creation and that people can therefore not know anything about all those former lives any more?
That inner life will awaken in the mother body and can only awaken therein as the child grows within the mother?
