Sleep aides such as zzz quill or any other put the sleeping subconscious into a lower state, a lower realm, where beings plant seeds into the consciousness. These seeds affect the waking mind, knowingly or unknowingly.
Drinking tea before bed can put one into a higher realm, but know this, the boogie man gets bigger the higher you go, so to do this on a regular basis can be dangerous as well.
It is best to go to sleep without these things, working consciously to raise one’s state of mind while awake so the sleep pattern is level, balanced between the higher and lower realms. This is where we are meant to be, in balance.
Pharmaceuticals and OTC sleep aides, alcohol and illegal drugs throw this balance off, affecting the waking state, and therefore affect the balance of the seen realm we walk in during our waking hours.
