Today I had definitely the best Level 2 practice that I’ve had so far. One potential reason that it went so well and I didn’t fall asleep: I drank a soda ~20 minutes before my practice. I think having some caffeine in my system kept me from falling asleep, without having so much caffeine in me that it negatively impacted my practice.
Interestingly enough, I saw a return to the form of my good Level 1 practice sessions: My mind was decently active for about the first 10 minutes of practice, then I went into a deep state of relaxation and quiet mind for 15 minutes, and then the brainwaves accurately started to bring me out and into a more conscious level of awareness for the last 5 minutes.
I felt so refreshed and was in such a deep state of mind that I had to open my eyes as I was coming out, because I wasn’t sure if I had accidentally let the track repeat! Sure enough, there were only 3 minutes left in the program, and it was right about time that the brainwaves should be pulling me out.
I count today as a major success, and by far the best I’ve felt using Level 2. This is pretty encouraging to me, and I look forward to watching my progress as the level progresses!
