I think I might have taken an extra nap. Then again, my entire night was a blur of me running circles in my house jumping on the furniture and yelling, rapping at the top of my lungs in the theater, slamming into walls by accident, trying to go on a walk outside, but walking directly into a prickly bush, and trying to clean but being unable to keep my eyes open.
I don't know how I got through that, but I''ll do it every night for a week if necessary. I'm getting this polyphasic thing no matter what.
Before I went to Massachusetts, things were peachy. I did 4 days with only one hour of oversleeping. Then during Massachusetts I did rather poorly, but still not too bad. When I got back I was settling back into my polyphasic/gangsta lifestyle, but that got interrupted for my trip to Vegas. And Vegas, surprisingly, wasn't kind to the schedule.
Since then I've been trying to get back on the boat, so to speak. Last night I only overslept by 90 minutes, but I just woke up from a 4 hour (!!!!) oversleep. So now, I confess that I've been keeping something from you, dear reader.
I recently began the habit of meditation. I had neither practiced it before nor learned anything about it, so I came up with my own 3 step process to follow:
I chatted with Ari, who practices meditation daily and has done so habitually for some time. He suggested that the first 2 are appropriate for meditation, but not the third.
That is when I learned a new concept: That of the distinction between meditation and manifestation. Manifestation is equivalent to a term I am more familiar with: Visualization.
Meditation : Present :: Manifestation : Future
