Today was Day 3 of Level 1 in my journey with the Brain Evolution System. The past two days I’ve been struggling with unwanted falling asleep during my practice, and today I’m happy to report that I’ve made an improvement in that area!
Two things helped me to stay awake today:
- I took a REALLY long nap this afternoon (was travelling today, so it was a freebie)
- I kept the lights on while practicing
I practiced at the same time of day as usual (~5PM), so tomorrow I’ll practice earlier in the day instead of taking a nap, but overall things went well.
I was definitely awake and aware for the first 10 minutes and the last 5-8 minutes of the practice, but there was a nice section in the middle where I had reached a pretty deep level of relaxation and wasn’t really consciously aware (but I don’t think I actually fell asleep either). I naturally came out of the deep state near the end of the audio for the first time (as I should), which was nice.
The only downside was that during those periods of being well-alert, it was really hard to empty my mind of thoughts and create a space/stillness. Obviously this is only Day 3, so I have a lot of time to work on that (10x this, PLUS 6 more levels!), but it was indeed a challenge today.
If you’d like to try things out with me, it’s definitely not too late to grab yourself a free mp3 and come along for the ride!
