Waking up in the middle of the night with thoughts that are not amazing!

I love the thought work we are doing, and my first month of scholars has been really great! I am getting so much clarity with understanding the models and thoughts showing up and how to work on managing them – I know it will take practice. When I am awake, I am focused and intentional, and I am making progress.

Last night I woke up in the middle of the night and had lots of awful thoughts – really, old models running in my brain about all sorts of things, with lots of fear and self judgement in the mix. And then a lot of time trying to settle down to sleep again.

Is this normal part of working through this shift in thinking? Is there a point where this is something that will happen less frequently?
