It was after Midnight here in Germany when Sunday Session 2 ended. I went to bed with some really cool impressions in my head. While I was sleeping, something very interesting happened. I dreamd that I could play the trumpet so easily, so simply, almost without doing anything. The trumpet played by itself. I put my trumpet to my lips – barely touching the mouthpiece and created a nice warm soft and round sound with just a touch of air. Quietly from the lower to the upper register. Wow! In the dream, a quiet joy came over me. When I woke up I knew that the WindWorks method had made its way into my subconscious…
I love that dream and from a scientific perspective, don’t underestimate the role of dream science and sleep in embedding the concepts.
The brain has been underestimated for so long. Even though certain scientists developed hypotheses in the early 1900s around neuroplasticity, mainstream scientists used to believe up until the 1960s that once the brain was fully developed, it was no longer malleable. A bunch of research has been done since and new developments are happening all the time to the present day.
Memory replay may show up in our dreams. Memories move from temporary storage in the hippocampus area in the brain that is thought to be important for short-term memory to permanent storage in other parts of the brain. This makes the memories easier to remember later. Memories improve with sleep because the memories are replayed during sleep. So, even if you don’t dream a cool dream like yours, the memory will still move from the hippocampus. From a psychological perspective, a dream like that is really good around ongoing motivation.
It’s good that you are a science nerd. It ist very helpful to look at things from different perspectives. Many small pieces of the mosaic result in a high-resolution image with many recognizable details.
When I start to push during my exercises or when I want to force something, I remember this liht feeling in my dream. My 1.0 behavior changes immediately! There is no need to force anything. Stay in the process. The results will come at some point…
