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 2, Day 28: Vivid Dreams Return

Whoo! I only have 2 more days of practice and 1 day of reflection before I move on to Level 3- wow. This continues to be a really exciting journey for me, and I feel like I’m making good progress on my goal to start a lifelong love/habit of meditation.

Now that I’ve been practicing with the brainwaves a little more consistently again, I’m noticing a lot of the same things coming back into the picture: my brain is following the intended curves of the brainwaves a lot more closely (I come out of a deep state of mind at the end, guided by the brainwaves). I’m entering deep states of mind and staying there even in noisier environments. Also, most interestingly, my dreams are becoming very vivid again and my dream recall has improved again.

I haven’t noticed any lucidity in these dreams like I did a few weeks ago, but I bet that will come with a couple more days of practice. I think the effects of Level 2 on my dreams is absolutely fascinating.

Seeing as I’m getting really close, I’m very curious as to what Level 3 will effect in terms of my dreams, sleep paralysis, etc. We’ll see soon enough!
