Yesterday night I had to do a sleep practice, as it was unavoidable, but as it turns out my initial fear of doing sleep practice for Level 2 were completely unfounded- it’s actually suggested in the Level 2 explanation video, as I found out two days ago!
Of course, it did take me a good couple of minutes to get relaxed and start to fall asleep, but as I was doing so, I had increasingly vivid/interesting visualizations as the brainwaves took me deeper, something I knew was a possibility thanks to the explanation video. In fact, I’ve noticed that in general I always tend to have nonsensical visualizations JUST before falling asleep, and I can use them as a reliable sign that I’m about to fall asleep, but these were just a little more vivid/I was more consciously aware of them.
After that, I have no idea how the rest of the session went- I fell asleep and never woke up again as I would during Level 1 sleep training. I woke up (get this) exactly a minute before my alarm was to go off, realizing that my headphones were still plugged into my phone and I was initially worried that I hadn’t heard my alarm and had overslept by an hour or something. Nope- I woke myself up literally 60 seconds before it went off. Good morning!
