Reply To: Question about Sleeping
PAUL! Thank you!
I read this in the middle of the night when you posted it and then I never responded! I am very sorry. Please forgive my tardy response.

I hope so! Right now, I am hitting about once a day about 5 times a week. However, this week has proved to be very intense in my relationship (as I just posted on the “Belief Blasters” forum), so I'm doing a LOT of rounds of PSTEC at one sitting/go.

Oh, thank goodness! It's nice to know I am not alone.
I have been doing the tracks at a variety of times. I will say that this last week (the first week of April) my extreme fatigue/desire to sleep continued. I slept at least an additional two hours every day (good thing I am working remotely and have a flexible schedule so I can make up my hours).
In fact, just today I did two 18 minute rounds of the Belief Blasters and then came home to meditate (I'm using Brain Entrainment software from Iawake). I feel asleep for about two hours!
You wrote: “When doing the Click Tracks, the subconscious mind has to do a lot of work.”
I'm hoping that I am doing it “right” as my mind tends to go all over the place because I have so many interconnected memories for my thoughts/feelings that arise in the present moment, many of which I don't have a “charge” around anymore.
So I'm happy to know that possibly I'm sleeping a lot because I've been waiting so long for a tool like PSTEC (I've done EMDR, EFT, and a host of verbal/analytic therapy things . . . even had a series of soul retrievals by a shaman).
You wrote, “You could experiment with running the Click Tracks at different times of the day.”
I've definitely been doing that. Thank you for the suggestion!
You wrote: “There may be some metaphorical content in your dream. If you have any level of financial or social discomfort, that can be addressed with the Click Tracks.”
I definitely have BOTH. I have been mostly working on relationship issues as they relate to my perceptions/negative thoughts about my body and my loveability/worth as they relate to fears around my partner. I will be moving on to the “money stuff” and my social discomfort soon!
You wrote: “Please let us know how the 30 days go. If you have any other questions or concerns, please let us know.”
I will indeed! Right now I think my combination of a meditation practice supported by brain entrainment and the PSTEC is making me extremely tired! So I'm going to take this exhaustion/need for extra sleep as a good sign.
