Level 1, Day 13: Dreaming through a Thunderstorm

Had a very interesting practice session today..

There was a loud thunderstorm outside while I practiced, which created a pretty cool environment to meditate in (and it probably also helped me stay awake). I stayed awake the entire time, which was an improvement over the past few days, and reach deep states of mind in the middle too.

Throughout most of the time where I was more conscious, I had “dreams” (even though this isn’t REM sleep)- i guess “visualizations” would be a better word. I had vivid dreams last night while I slept too, so maybe some of that was carrying over. I let these stay without trying to either engage in them or let go- so I count that as a major success following Lazy Yogi’s advice to “not have a goal”, just to meditate as is.

The one thing that made my practice less than perfect was that I got distracted by my phone 2 or 3 times at the beginning/end and opened my eyes to check out what was going on. Tomorrow I’ll be sure to turn on “Do Not Disturb” before my session.

Overall though, a good day! Grab a free MP3 of the Brain Evolution system here if you’d like.
