Seeing as today marked the end of my first “week” with the Brain Evolution System, it was time to take an intentional day off from using the audio and instead spend my daily 30 minutes in self-reflection. I first reflected on my goals for using the program, then spent 10 minutes in silent meditation, and then sat down to write this blog post and some other personal writings on my progress so far.
Here are the goals I came up with for using the BrainEv system:
- Begin and boost a lifelong love and daily practice of meditation
- Decrease stress levels and increase “being in a ‘flow state’” in my everyday life
- Enable and support positive rewiring and reprogramming of my brain
- Reach and explore new, deeper states of mind
- Increase/enhance cognitive functioning
These self-reflection days will be especially great if I use them to practice longer and longer periods of silent mindfulness meditation. Right now 10 minutes seems like a long time and I get frustrated with how pervasive my thoughts are, but after 6 months of practice I’m sure that I’ll get very good at it, plus I’ll have developed a habit where EVERY DAY I spend 30 minutes to myself in some sort of meditative state.
Otherwise, I think my biggest challenge moving forward will be staying consistent in my practice, which I have full faith that I can. It wasn’t an INCREDIBLE first week, but I feel encouraged, and think that plenty of amazing things lie ahead not just in the next week, or even Level 1, but in the entire program.
