My experience with NeurOptimal® came on a day I was feeling pretty upbeat. I felt good, there was nothing particularly stressful on my mind, and I was trying out this new technology that could help people in need (but not me I thought, I felt great). Although I felt great, I did have some struggles with nervousness, worry, anxiety, stress, and sleep issues. To my surprise after my session I felt clearer, less bombarded with thoughts and more in the moment of my experience. It was very weird to me to have something alleviated that I didnt even know was affecting me, I thought obsessive thoughts were normal.
As I continued training I felt more and more interesting experiences. I had more confidence, I slept more deeply and fell asleep faster. My movements felt better and my thoughts were more organized and fluid. I felt more joy and less suffering in the most mundane aspects of my daily life. It was awesome.
After so much improvement I was shocked and confused when some difficult feelings came up. I felt anxiousness, worry, anger, and they all caused me stress because “Why am I feeling this way!? I’m supposed to be free from all negative feelings because of the brain training!” After the feelings passed, as they always would, I realized that the difficult feelings were less intense, and passed much more quickly than they had in the past. I realized that I couldn’t escape experiencing my more difficult emotions, but they were dealt with much more easily than before.
This brought me to view my life in a slighty different way, more like a ride, like a roller coaster. They both have peaks and valleys, which can’t be avoided, but it was my perception of the valleys that ultimately decided my enjoyment level of the ride. Could I enjoy every up, down and twist of the ride or would I fear and stress every drop and turn, its ultimately up to me.
NeurOptimal® has opened my eyes to my thoughts, habits, eating and lifestyle choices and helped me to make the changes that are best for me, and I’ve decided to share this oppurtunity with others as well.
