2.  A state between being awake & falling asleep. It is also called the "Borderland Consciousness." It is during this state of consciousness when we are most receptive to images, symbols, impressions, sounds, ideas and feelings. It is also a state very receptive to Intuition. Its counterpart, between sleep and being awake, is called the hypnopompic state.
