Where wild minds come to rest
It's now the fourth week I don't daydream anymore!
I don't know whether it is for good, there were times in my life, when very emotional things happened, that I didn't daydream for days - once I even didn't daydream for 8 months. But now nothing unusual has happened.
In the first days I had maybe 40 times a day the impulse to dd, but it had literally the taste of fake. It was, as if I saw some delicious food, and with the first bite I noticed, it is made of plastic. So I stopped it right away. Now these impulses are far less, maybe four times a day.
In the weeks before I did Yoga, Qi Gong, Nidra Yoga (where you just lay down and concentrate on your body), I read a book by Peter A. Levine about trauma and did some tapping-excersices he recommends and I read a book by Adyashanti about awakening. I also started a course about phytotherapie, which I really enjoy.
Maybe one of these or all together helped?
I thought that after 40 years of daydreaming my brain is so degenerated, that it can't work properly without dd. But I really feel healthy and fit now.
So I don't know how it will go on. Maybe when I'm under pressure it starts again - I can't say. I'll tell you when I have a relapse or when I'm daydream-free for one year.
