Cot Deaths

I dreamt that an enormous amount of my energy was in-turned into seeking states of mind – seeking my own womb condition. I came across an interesting piece of research in the dream, the possibility that cot death babies die when they dream about being in the womb. The reason being that the body follows the dream and in the womb there is no need to breath, so they stop. This reminds me of my own experiences of finding a ‘mystical’ state when my breath stops, and how in yoga practice there is a need to slow and stop the breath to reach altered states of consciousness.
