Choice of sleep mode for nighttime use is based upon whether or not you lost consciousness during the initial MANUAL MODE session. This is why IT IS IMPERATIVE YOU DO THE INITIAL SESSION.
Effects of your initial ‘head-centric” MANUAL MODE session @ 9.6 Hz should be increased focus, better balance and coordination, better hand-eye-motor synchronization. Others might call it a “grounding” effect. As capillaries dilate some will hear their heart beating, or feel the blood coursing through their veins.
Bend down and touch your toes for the first few mornings so you feel how much more flexible you are.
If you lose track of time or have lucid dreams during MANUAL MODE session @ 9.6 Hz, you should give the same mode a try at night and then SLEEP 3 MODE as fall-back setting if you can’t fall asleep, or if waking during the night.
SLEEP 3 MODE boots to 3 Hz and thus is better as a fallback program.
Usually 3 to 7 days of Sleep 3 or Sleep EZ mode is the best way to get acclimatized and start sleeping better. Once you are sleeping well in Sleep 3 or Sleep EZ, then switch to Manual mode @ 9.6 Hz. Step down to Sleep 1 if you wake up in the middle of the night.
If you experienced no sleep / lucid dreaming during initial session choose SLEEP EZ or SLEEP 3 MODE as your first nighttime program. If you sleep worse than normal please refer to section on AGITATION in Troubleshooting Section. If you experienced some sleep or lost-time, then try MANUAL MODE @ 9.6 Hz the first night, using SLEEP 3 MODE as your fall-back setting.
RBH Test done?
PLEASE DO YOUR INITIAL RBH test PRIOR TO YOUR INITIAL SESSION as the brain is known to consume large amounts of oxygen, so you will be able to take this simple test and measure your progress. Bend down and touch your toes for the first few mornings so you feel how much more flexible you are.
