Level 3 Final Reflection: New Uses for the Brain Evolution System

Hi all! Been a while since I last updated the blog. Things have been going well with BrainEv- on days when I use it (most days) I notice a better ability to focus throughout the day, emotional renewal, more vivid dreams, and a slightly decreased need for sleep.

One thing I wanted to talk about as I near the end of Level 3 is that I’ve begun combining BrainEv with other personal development work I’ve been doing, specifically visualization practice. Since Levels 2 and 3 of BrainEv are particularly suited to facilitating vivid imagery and visualization, while I’m lying down and relaxing into my practice session is the perfect time to visualize goals I’d like to accomplish.

Although I’m not noticing any amazing states of mind from Level 3, I have no doubt that I’m still getting benefits daily from using Brain Evolution System. By combining it with other personal development work, I make it all the more worth my while. One thing I should experiment with as I near the end of Level 3 is varying the time of day at which I practice, to see if that brings me any different effects. Otherwise, I look forward to Level 4 beginning soon!

Level 3, Day 14: Reflection 3.2

So now that I’ve been using Level 3 consistently again for a few days, it’s time to do another reflection. I don’t have too many updates to do on how the actual practice sessions themselves are going, except for the following two points:

  • The overall contour of the sessions is starting to fall into a more regular pattern along the lines of Levels 1+2. I’m taking this to mean that my brain is adapting to the new unique things that Level 3 presents
  • My dreams have gotten EXTREMELY vivid lately, and this is definitely compounded with other work I’m doing on lucid dreaming, but I would not be surprised if Level 3 is somehow contributing to this

That being said, I’m not really experiencing the during-practice visualization that the Level 3 video said I might. I am getting a lot better at quieting my mind when first laying down for the session, which is a good skills to pick up especially for any future meditation practice I take on.

For now, things are neither amazing nor discouraging- I’m just going to keep on using the system and trusting that it’ll work out. It’s been a fantastic tool so far and a great supplement to all of my other self-development work, so I have high hopes for my continued progress throughout BrainEv.

Level 3, Days 9-10: Falling Off and Having Trouble

Hey BrainEv blog readers! I kinda fell off track with my BrainEv practice over the last week and a half or so, and I honestly lost track of days numbers too, so I’m gonna say that Sunday and yesterday were days 9 and 10.

Maybe it’s just because I haven’t been practicing often enough, but I ran into some difficulty, at least yesterday. After a pretty good start to the session, I was interrupted for a moment by my new roommate something like 15 or 20 minutes in, and after that I could not regain the deep state of mind I was in. I felt plenty relaxed, and didn’t have the best perception of time, but I was pretty alert/functioning. I wonder if this has to do with the beta brainwaves in Level 3.

Another interesting thing I’ve noticed- often times somewhere in the first 5-10 minutes of a practice session with Level 3, my mind will be wandering/visualizing and suddenly something will come up (not sure if it’s thoughts that trigger this or just something random physically) and I’ll make a very sudden motion- like I’ll suddenly shoot my arm out or kick my leg or shift positions jerkily. Not sure what it is, but I’ve noticed it a couple times now 😛

I’ll get back on board with BrainEv over the coming weeks and make a vow to be consistent with my practice, in order to see the best results possible and report things to you guys as accurately as possible.

Level 3, Day 7: Reflection 3.1

So it’s now been (really, 7+ days) of doing Level 3 of the Brain Evolution System, which means it’s time for me to check in with how things are going, reflect on Level 3 so far, and think of some adjustments to make moving forward.

So far for me there have been three notable things about Level 3:

Emotions the Level 3 support video talks about how a lot of people feel a lot of emotions being brought up during this level, and I think that’s true for me. Its showing up in my everyday life, and in my dreams. My dreams seem to be doing a lot of emotional renewal for me lately, and as I’ve been going about my everyday life I feel more in touch with my feelings and at peace with them. If I notice sadness or loneliness, I feel okay with those things, which is really nice, actually.

Beta Brainwaves– The other interesting thing with Level 3 is the presence of beta-range brainwaves in the minor entrainment tier, which is somewhat counter-intuitive and new to this level. I think this is having a few effects: First, I feel refreshed and alert after each session, instead of groggy, which is nice. Secondly, I sometimes gain consciousness in the middle of my session, which is interesting.

Overall Contour– Finally, the overall pattern that my brainwaves seem to follow in this level is a little different. In both levels 1 and 2, I followed a pattern where it took 5-15 minutes to start entering a pretty deep state, stay mostly unconscious or at a deep state of relaxation for the middle of the program, then start to come out with 5 minutes or less left (or even 5 minutes AFTER the audio ended!). This level is a little different. It takes longer to “go under”, 10-20 minutes probably, and I stay under for 10-20 minutes (and in this level that feels like a REALLY long time for some reason), but start coming out earlier, usually with a couple minutes left in the audio.

Although there isn’t anything drastic happening aside from the emotional stuff, I’m enjoying Level 3 so far. Interested to see what new things will emerge as I get better trained to this level, so stay tuned!

Level 3, Days 1-3: Solid Start to the New Level!

 

Welcome to Level 3! I have to say, I’m super excited for this one. Even in just the first days of using it, I’m noticing that I get really locked in to the brainwaves which is awesome, come out of each session very well without feeling groggy, and I think Level 3 is having some effects on my sleep cycles as well, but I want to wait and observe that more before I comment on it too much.

One thing I find very interesting is that the minor tier brainwaves peak at beta for a while- I’m noticing that it takes me a little while longer to go really deep- about 10-15min of the session, but then I suddenly get very deep, and come out smoothly at the end of the session.

Level 3 apparently can cause a lot of visualization, which isn’t necessarily something that I’ve experienced yet, but I’ve found that it causes the same non-logic-checked thought patterns that I seem to have while I fall asleep, which is interesting. My dreams continue to be very vivid and easily memorable- no instances of lucidity recently though.

Overall, I’d say that so far Level 3 is very enjoyable- much more like Level 1 than Level 2. It’s different, which is refreshing, and my brain seems to adapt very well to the brainwaves (maybe because there’s a different audio technology used in this level, I dunno).

Definitely looking forward to the next 28 days!!
