  1. 5 December 2019 Time: 58 minutes 40 seconds Eyes always closed: No Summary: I opened my eyes at 19 minutes because I had to inform my grandma about something. I also got distracted near the end by a message on my phone, so I opened my eyes before 1 hour. I choose to let go of everything for this session and I think I will do the same for several following sessions to accustom myself to 1 hour in the beginning. I had a lot of thoughts today and the ending was a little painful, however, I felt a little more conscious when I opened my eyes.
  2. @Pramit Thanks, I already did a few 1 hour sessions in the past, but never created a consistent habit.
  3. 4 December 2019 Time: 28 minutes 48 seconds Eyes always closed: No Summary: I didn't meditate that much today, maybe it was because of the apprehension and challenge to push to 1 hour or maybe because of how consistent I have been the last 30 days so that I need a little break from meditation. Anyway, I had a lot of thoughts during this session and was also quite excited. I didn't felt more conscious when I opened my eyes.
  4. Let's Push To 1 Hour I have been meditating every day for 45 minutes without opening my eyes. The first phase of my objective is then completed and it's time to move to the next step. I will start tomorrow and it will go the same as for 45 minutes, my goal is now to meditate for 1 hour for at least 30 days without opening my eyes.
  5. 3 December 2019 Time: 45 minutes Summary: I kept my eyes closed during the entire session and choose to follow @Raptorsin7's advice and found it harder than just letting go. I suppose that's normal as consciousness demands a certain effort. Sometimes I felt some movements in my brain as if the left and right parts were trying to merge. I was pretty aware when my thoughts were taking over so I try to get back to consciousness when it was happening. It wasn't perfect and I failed sometimes, but most of the time I was conscious of it. I felt more aware when I opened my eyes.
  6. @Raptorsin7 Thanks, that's good advice.
  7. I'm not sure. I know I can see my thoughts for a few seconds, but I think I'm still immersed in them. Most of the time, I don't even remember my thoughts after the session.
  8. 2 November 2019 Time: 45 minutes Summary: I kept my eyes closed during the entire session, even if I found it quite difficult. I let go of everything and was in a thought storm today, I also had some burning feelings in my body because of stress. I didn't felt more conscious when I opened my eyes.
  9. @Aeris That's normal and predictable behaviours. I didn't visited their forum in more than 5 years. I would like to read the reactions, can you PM me the link?
  10. 1 December 2019 Time: 45 minutes Summary: Unlike yesterday, I choose to let go of everything. I kept my eyes closed and let my thoughts do whatever they wanted, I didn't move my body a lot, and I felt like this session went very fast. My mind was a little clearer when I opened my eyes.
  11. A Little Of Red I feel like I have a little of stage red inside me, maybe 1 - 2%. It's not toxic, but I can see it appearing when I'm confronted with very difficult people. What's important is that I have control over it, even if sometimes it can be difficult.
  12. Thoughts And Emotions Are Tools I'm currently arriving at a level of consciousness where I can see that emotions and thoughts can be used as tools to go through life. In fact, from a certain level of consciousness, it becomes possible to activate and deactivate them when needed according to our life circumstances. As an example, if someone has a great vision he/she can mix thoughts with love (one of the most powerful emotions) to attain a purpose. Thought specifies a direction and love creates motion. At this moment, I'm not able to do this powerfully, but I have a grasp of the potential.
  13. 30 November 2019 Time: 45 minutes Summary: I tried to do some mindfulness today, but wasn't very successful as I got lost in thoughts a lot. However, I kept my eyes closed a lot and almost didn't move my body, my back was very straight for most of the meditation. I felt a little more conscious when I opened my eyes.
  14. @Raptorsin7 When you pushed to 2 hours, did you did it gradually? Did you try 1h 15m, 1h30, etc. before? Or you went directly to it?
