I don't remember everything that happens while I am sleeping but I do know that often I am dreaming of things that have no relation to normal life. Other times I dream of positive normal life events. So... I am in a state of allowing, am I not? I have successfully "let go", I am no longer "attached", "desperately needing", etc. So what gives? I know this question is going to sound like I'm just making fun of these ideas but I am really not... can I sleep my way out of resistance/into manifestation? This thought came to me because I was thinking about how animals grow and heal during sleep. Am I just not sleeping enough?
Yes, you are quite right.
Sleeping is an allowing state and if it wasn't for sleep periods, many people who are continually focused on what they don't want (whether they are aware they are doing it or not) would lead lives of much greater turmoil and trouble.
In that sense, periods of sleep act as a vibrational safety valve for many.
However, there is a difference between sleep and meditation and it is important to understand:
It is true that if you got yourself focused clearly on what you wanted (not the absence of it) and then just slept non-stop, it would eventually manifest in your reality...but you wouldn't be aware of it because you were sleeping :)
Sure, you could get someone to wake you up once your life sorts itself out but, on waking up, your life would then start to un-sort itself out again to match your conscious resistance-filled patterns of thought.
In order to counteract that, you would then need to give your undivided appreciative focus to what you have manifested as a way of quickly habituating to the "new" physical reality.
While that may sound like an easy way to get your "stuff", it's not all that practical because you have a broader intention to focus consciously within this physical reality and there are physical limitations in place to prevent yourself from withdrawing consciously from it for too long...hunger, thirst, for example. Try sleeping non-stop for a few days and see how well you do :)
For that reason, sleep - while a useful vibrational safety valve - is not a particularly useful method for physically manifesting what you want...if you want to focus for any period of time in this physical reality, that is :)
Meditation (or better, appreciation) is much more valuable because you are able to train yourself to maintain your resistance-free state while being conscious.
