The Secret Behind Subliminal Messages

180x150_02

What makes subliminal messages so effective? The secret behind them is a fact that advertisers have known for decades; the more people are exposed to something, the easier it is to influence them.

Suppose, for example, that you want to give up smoking. You know it’s bad for your health, it’s expensive, and it’s becoming more and more anti-social. You have the desire to give up, for all the right reasons, but just can’t seem to take it to that final stage.

Believe it or not, your conscious mind is getting in the way. No matter what you really think, you don’t have the ability to put it into practice in the regular course of events. Your day is busy, you’ve got lots of other things on your mind, and you haven’t given the idea of quitting smoking enough priority.

The Subliminal Advantage

Subliminal messages are positive affirmations presented to your ears or eyes at a rate or volume that your conscious mind is unable to detect. Your subconscious mind, however, takes in everything. These messages bypass your logical conscious state and go directly to your subconscious. If messages are sent frequently enough they’ll start to change the way you think, and therefore the way you behave.

Someone who wants to give up smoking might be presented with subliminal messages similar to these:

• I am stronger than cigarettes
• I respect and nurture my body
• I am able to resist the temptation of smoking

Reading these three short affirmations on a page won’t produce any magical results within your subconscious mind. But imagine the impact if, instead of three messages, your subconscious was exposed to thousands – over and over again – for a couple of weeks. All the research shows the same thing: gradually your attitude changes, and then your behavior.

How Subliminal Messages Work

Some people argue that, if you can’t hear the sounds, or you can’t see the images, how can they possibly make any difference? The point is that you aren’t aware that you’re hearing or seeing the messages, but your subconscious mind still takes them in. That’s the reason why subliminal messages work in the first place – because they sneak into your head, bypassing your conscious rational mind, and getting at the core of your belief system.

You’re exposed to subliminal messages every day. You might have the radio on in the morning when you drive to work and keep hearing about a new film that’s just come out. The first time you hear it you give it your attention. As the days turn into weeks you’re no longer consciously listening to it, but the information flows into your subconscious mind. If it’s a film that interests you, this constant subtle reminder will probably be enough to get you to go to the cinema and watch it.

Now think how powerful that process would be if it was something you desperately wanted to achieve, like giving up smoking. Your determination combined with the mind-changing power of those positive affirmations makes a winning formula. Eventually you’ll think of smoking as a disgusting, destructive habit that you can’t believe you started in the first place.

If you really and truly want to make lasting changes in your behavior but can’t seem to find the impetus to get going, try subliminal messages. You’ve got nothing to lose and the chance to gain a new and more rewarding lifestyle.

My Review of Nitrofocus: “Get More Done in Less Time… With an MP3?”

Nitrofocus Introduction from Inspire3 on Vimeo

www.nitrofocus.net

Sharper focus. Enhanced concentration. Greater productivity. Getting into “The Zone.” More motivation.

In the 2011 film ‘Limitless’, Bradley Cooper simply popped a tiny pill, and suddenly the whole of his brain power activated. All of those traits suddenly flickered into play.

He was able to blast through work, quickly and intelligently. He could study more and better than ever before. He finished chores at lightening speed. He could come up with ideas and predictions at the speed of thought.

‘Limitless’ was a great film — and a brilliant fantasy for the rest of us.

But, what if all those benefits were actually available — right now?

And not using pills, but by using a simple little ‘brain hack’ that involves nothing more than an MP3 file?

That’s the claim of a new program called Nitrofocus. Intrigued, I decided to try it out for myself.

The Power of Brainwave Science

Nitrofocus is a new MP3 audio program. It uses special ‘brainwave’ tones to help increase focus levels, and bring about those ‘Limitless’-style benefits.

Now, all this talk of brainwaves initially sounds quite complex. But it works pretty simply.

The Nitrofocus MP3 audio contains frequency patterns, which match the brains natural ‘focus’ frequencies. All of these frequency tones are cleverly embedded inside audio tracks.

When you play the MP3s, and your brain hears them, it naturally copies them – thereby bringing about a natural state of sharp focus and concentration.

This is a scientifically-proven process known as “brainwave entrainment.”

Researched for over 100 years, brainwave entrainment has been used to help reduce pain levels, increase mood, help patients overcome insomnia, lower stress levels, and so much more. The more I learned, the more I was fascinated by the applications. And for over 40 years, commercial applications of brainwave entrainment have been available to the public – and at the cutting edge of this research was Nitrofocus.

I was hooked. I had to find out more. So I decided to try it out for myself.

My First Listening Experience with Nitrofocus

The basic Nitrofocus experience is available as a free 7-day trial.

Once you start, you’re immediately sent one of the main Nitrofocus sessions — the 1-hour “Nitrofocus Classic” MP3 — alongside a couple of other bonuses.

(By the way, this trial literally didn’t cost a penny. If I wanted to upgrade to a VIP customer later on, they would unlock further sessions. But the trial was completely free regardless, and you can even keep the existing Nitrofocus sessions should you decided to cancel.)

The Nitrofocus MP3 instructions are simple: just listen while you work. It sounded like something from a Disney movie.

So, the very next day, I gave it a go. I had to write a few articles for one of the websites I’m involved in. To help me out, I decided to play the Nitrofocus MP3 in the background while I worked. It’d be a great opportunity to trial the program.

I hit ‘play’. The Nitrofocus Classic sounds begin.

Initially, it all sounded rather strange. A series of very soft, rapid tones, all over a bed of gentle ocean-like static. I slip on a pair of headphones (optional) and begin my work.

Suddenly, it’s lunchtime.

And I’d not just completed one article. Rather, I’d completed a huge six articles, many of which I’d been putting off for weeks. I’d also completely cleared my inbox, and sat there wondering what to do next. I’d already finished the next 2-3 days work, with effortlessly and with zero stress and resistance.

At first, I didn’t credit it to Nitrofocus. I put it down to one of those “good runs” that writers sometimes (although rarely!) get.

I left my office early, and decided to spend time with my family the rest of the day, instead of indulging in even more work. I actually feel reluctant in taking off the headphones. The sounds are so immersive, like a cuddly comfort blanket, I feel I just want to leave it playing.

Encouraged, I decide to take my experimenting to the next level.

Blasting Through Messages, Chores and Reading

Over the next few days, I decided to continue using Nitrofocus, and measure the difference it made to my day.

I listened regularly to this simple 1-hour Nitrofocus MP3, all while doing any task that I needed to get in ‘The Zone’ with. And it started making a huge difference in my life.

I began blasting through my work quicker than ever before. I blitzed through my inbox, my writing, my project planning, my creative work, and so much more. Suddenly things just became easier. I listened while doing house chores. I got through them in minutes, and time just fly by, when it would’ve otherwise been a real drag. I used it when reading, and managed to get through around three business books within a single hour.

The motto of Nitrofocus is “Get more done, in less time” — and, at least in my experience, the statement was really holding true.

Just in case you were wondering, the Nitrofocus MP3 can be played on loop while you work. You can use it with or without headphones. And it includes special “white noise” sounds to help block out background distractions that may be sucking away at your focus levels.

Within the first week of listening, it’s fair to say that Nitrofocus doubled — perhaps even tripled — my productivity, all without any of the downsides usually associated with overworking. I experienced zero stress. To the contrary, I felt happy, breezy, refreshed and content.

Then, my account got unlocked…

Exploring the Full Nitrofocus VIP Program

I decided to continue beyond my 7-day free trial.

The friendly people behind the site sent me a few emails regarding this process, and upgraded my account to a Nitrofocus VIP account. The total cost was $97.

That’s when the full program suddenly becomes available to you. And then WOW. I was impressed. This was where all the real value existed.

The full Nitrofocus program contains 5 main Nitrofocus MP3 sessions, each lasting 1 full hour. These are Nitrofocus Classic, Nitrofocus Digital, Nitrofocus Easy, Nitrofocus Workout and Nitrofocus Ocean.

You use all of them just like the original Nitrofocus Classic MP3, however they each have their own different styles, so you can choose the one which most matches your mood.

For example, Nitrofocus Workout I found to be just brilliant for using at the gym, or when doing household chores. It was a high-energy Ibiza-style workout mix that just had me pumping. And Nitrofocus Ocean was a more relaxing session, which I tended to use more when writing in the evenings.

They all do the same task of sharpening your focus and rocketing your productivity — but each have their own unique style to match how you feel in that moment. Just choose the one you want to listen to!

The full Nitrofocus program also contains a 50-page user guide, and 7 supporting ‘brainwave’ MP3s.

These are: the 5-Minute Break MP3, the 10-Minute Break MP3, the Brain Booster MP3, the Focus Gym MP3, the Memory Commit MP3, the Analytical Builder MP3, and the Anxiety Reducer MP3.

These sessions are all intended to support your use with the main Nitrofocus program. The 10-Minute Break MP3, for example, I found incredibly relaxing, and it made for a nice break between those super-productive hours of using the main Nitrofocus MP3s. Memory Commit helped me commit a full speech I was working on to memory, and Anxiety Reducer helped me to calm down just before delivering it.

When I first heard of Nitrofocus, I had thought it was just a simple, single MP3. I was wrong. Nitrofocus is an entire brainwave MP3 package, designed to help seriously improve your life — all much more comprehensively than I had ever imagined.

It also comes with extremely friendly lifetime support, and membership to a highly active forum, where you can share tips and stories with thousands of other users.

Conclusion

I’m normally quite the skeptic.

Yes, I knew that brainwave entrainment had been scientifically-proven for over 100 years. Yes, I understood how it should theoretically work. Yes, I fell in love with the drama of the marketing.

But I didn’t realize what a genuinely powerful and real-world immediate affect it would have on me. All within minutes, and all just by listening to a simple MP3.

The results using Nitrofocus have just gotten better and better over the past month, and it’s fair to call me a total convert.

I earned back the cost of this powerful program within the first hour of it increasing my productivity.

I genuinely now see it as a no-brainer, and I’ve already recommended it to several of my closest friends. From housewives to executives, and everyone in-between: if you want to get more done in less time, then the Nitrofocus program is absolutely for you.

It’s “Limitless” — but without the risk of taking a pill.

Just hit play, and watch your life change. It literally couldn’t be easier.

My recommendation: Buy it!

PS. I wrote this review in exactly 12 minutes 🙂

Pros – Rapid results. Sharpens focus like nothing else. And it really works!
Cons – Download only (no audio CD version). No telephone support.

Subliminal Messages: How Do They Work?

 

Post 5

You’ve probably heard of subliminal messages. There are lots of urban myths about how companies and advertisers use these kinds of messages to persuade customers to act in certain ways. The truth is, however, that subliminal messages won’t make you do or feel anything you’re not already inclined to do or feel. And, ironically, that’s what makes them such effective and powerful self-development tools.

 

The word “subliminal” is made up of two parts: sub, which means under or below (as in submarine) and liminal, which means threshold (as in the word limit). These kinds of messages are therefore presented “below the threshold” of your conscious mind. So even though you aren’t aware of the information, your subconscious mind picks it up and locks it away in your brain.

 

You Can Literally Change Your Mind

 Download your free subliminal MP3s now at www.subliminalguru.net

Here’s the thing – your subconscious mind is where the real power lies. Everything you think and believe is stored away in there. If you want to make real changes in your life, you have to be able to make changes at the subconscious level.

 

Imagine your subconscious mind is like a robot you’ve built. The first thing you do is program it to work in a certain way. Unlike any sci-fi movies you may have seen, this robot is incapable of doing anything it hasn’t been programmed to do.

 

Your subconscious mind works just like that. Over the years you’ve been “programmed” by the things you’ve seen, the things you’ve heard, and the things you’ve done. Your thoughts and beliefs are embedded in there, and they get fed out to your conscious mind, making you think you’re deciding all this stuff consciously… but you’re not.

 

That’s why so many people find it hard to quit smoking using their willpower alone, or to find the motivation to exercise more, or to lose weight. It’s almost impossible to make any real changes that have a significant impact on your waking or conscious life, unless you first make those changes at a subconscious level.

 

Sublimely Effective

 

With subliminal technology, your subconscious mind gets bombarded with positive messages that can literally change the way you think. They bypass the conscious mind completely, below the threshold, so that this logical mind doesn’t get in the way. The more your subconscious mind is exposed to these new ideas, the easier it is for you to alter your behavior, and that gives you the chance to change your programming from the inside out.

 

Subliminal messages are presented in the form of audio or visual stimuli – background sounds or flashing images – that you aren’t even aware of. They sneak into your subconscious mind and start working to change your attitudes, making it easy to break bad habits and develop new, positive ones, and giving you that extra push you need to take your life in a whole new direction.

 

You might have enormous willpower and determination, but on their own they simply aren’t enough. That’s why so many people give up on their New Year’s resolutions after a month or two… because deep down they haven’t actually changed anything. To do that, you need to get at your subconscious mind and input the new programming that will help you change your beliefs – and ultimately allow you to reach your goal.

How Can Subliminal Messages Help To Improve Your Self Confidence?

Boost Self Confidence

We all know a friend who is naturally confident, they are social and extroverted and they are very outgoing in all situations.

Perhaps you are more introverted and “naturally” shy. You may feel like your confident friends are gifted from birth and you will never be like this, but this isn’t true.

Confidence is a skill that anyone can learn. The only difference between you and these confident people is that they have developed the skill from their childhood and experienced a lot of positive reinforcement, whereas perhaps you have faced rejection or criticism in the past, and where they grew more and more confident you perhaps grew anxious, or a little more shy and entered a negative spiral of sinking confidence.

Confidence is all in the mind – i.e. in the way you process your thoughts, and importantly your self beliefs and beliefs about what you are and aren’t capable of. Once you have the ability to change these patterns of thinking within your mind and change your self beliefs then you will really become more confident.

But How Can I Do This?

This is when subliminal audio can be useful!

Subliminals will can gain easy access to your inner min naturally and make changes to these negative self beliefs. Gradually they will replace them with positive beliefs and stimulate positive thoughts within your mind – basically to stop you thinking like you do and help you to instill the types of beliefs and thought processes shared by the naturally confident people you look up to.

Just imagine what it would be like to have the same set of self beliefs as someone who is just naturally confident – feeling excited by social interactions, feeling more extroverted, actually wanting to voice your opinion – think how confident these beliefs would make you on the outside!

I Can’t Meditate. Yes You Can!

anxious

“I can’t meditate. I can’t stop my mind from thinking. It’s way too hard!”

I hear this fairly often from people who are new to meditation, and sometimes even from people who have been practicing meditation for quite a while.

I have a real soft spot for people who are struggling to find the inner peace that meditation provides, because I know from first-hand experience just how frustrating it can be when that monkey in your mind REFUSES to sit still.

If you feel like you can’t meditate, do not despair! The solutions are probably a lot simpler than you might think. In fact, there’s a good chance that you are better at meditation than you realize. You might just have fallen victim to one of the most common misconceptions about what meditation actually is…

www.guidedmeditation.website

It’s NOT Perfect Inner Silence

This might seem like a controversial statement to some people, but I believe it wholeheartedly.

Newcomers to meditation often become trapped by the belief that they must achieve complete and utter mental silence through meditation. This can really lead to frustration and disappointment. Some people, after practicing meditation for a few weeks, or even for some months, still find it extremely difficult to stop their mind from wandering off.

You know what? This is NORMAL! It does not mean that you are unable to meditate.

So let’s re-define what meditation is, shall we? Meditation is not “complete mental stillness”, it is “sitting with the intention of becoming still”.

That’s right – meditation is not a destination, it’s a journey. The journey will be slightly different every time you meditate. Sometimes it will result in a feeling of profound stillness and relaxation, sometimes it won’t. Meditation is just not something you can judge in terms of success or failure.

So don’t judge yourself harshly if your mind wanders during meditation. This is normal, and even the most experienced meditators still get lost in a few “mental wanderings” during their meditation…sometimes more than a few.

Now is the time to remove the phrase “I can’t meditate” from your vocabulary. You can meditate, you might just have been holding on to a false idea of what meditation is supposed to feel like.

If you are really struggling with meditation, then my best advice is that you take a step back and don’t try too hard. Give yourself permission to be imperfect. If your mind wanders off during meditation – and it will – remember that this is perfectly OK. For some people, this simple realization is enough to take the pressure off their meditation practice and make room for a more relaxed approach to meditating. Sometimes, we just need to get out of our own way!

Over time, you will find that brief moments of silence between your thoughts gradually expand into longer and longer moments, and then one day, before you realize it, you’ll find yourself lost in bouts of long, deep, serene meditation. It does get easier.

Regularity is Your Friend

If you want to make great progress with meditation then it’s important to meditate regularly. If you sit to meditate just once or twice a week you may find that you don’t really gather enough momentum to experience the type of deep inner stillness that we all yearn for.

BUT…
Any meditation is better than none, so if you only meditate occasionally then you still deserve a big pat on the back for making time for such a healthy practice! You will still experience many of the benefits of meditation, however if you wish to become someone who can find stillness and peace in all moments of life, and someone who has the ability to achieve very deep states of relaxation, then daily meditation is a must.

Think you can’t meditate? Practice it daily and you will notice big changes. They happen in a sneaky kind of way. You might not even notice at first. But sure enough, the day will soon come where you reach the end of a meditation session and the first words that come to your mind are, “Whoa! I feel amazing!”

Chronic Stress & Lifestyle Change

Sometimes when someone says “I can’t meditate”, what they really mean is “My life is out of control, and I am so stressed that I am incapable of sitting still for just 5 minutes”.

The French philosopher Blaise Pascal put it nicely when he said: “The sum of man’s problems come from his inability to be alone in a silent room.”

You’d be amazed how many people this applies to. For them, meditation can be a real challenge.

If you live a particularly hectic, stressful life, then meditation will be incredibly beneficial to you. However it might not be a cure-all. If you are chronically stressed then a quick meditation session at the end of your day might not be enough to really bring you back to a state of complete health and harmony.

Sidebar:
My advice in this matter may be contrary to what many websites will tell you about meditation. The world is full of people who will promise you “instant relaxation”, or “super deep meditation at the touch of a button. It’s time for a reality check. Your mind is NOT a machine. You cannot switch it on or off instantly, and for most people, deep states of meditation are not achieved overnight.”

People who are chronically stressed usually became so gradually. Stress builds up in your mind, your emotions and your physical body, and it can accumulate over a long period of time. Ridding yourself of this kind of stress can take time, and it may require a number of changes to your lifestyle.

I like to use the “hitting yourself in the head with a hammer” analogy to really drive this point home:

John spends his days hitting himself in the head with a hammer. He does this all day, seven days a week. As you can imagine, John’s head gets very sore, so every night he applies an ice pack for 20 minutes to reduce the swelling. This is his meditation, and it works quite well. The swelling goes down just enough for him to get some sleep. And boy oh boy does he need that sleep! Without a good night’s rest he won’t have the energy to hit himself in the head with a hammer again tomorrow.

I think you get the point. John doesn’t need more meditation or some magical “quick fix”. What he really needs to do is change his stressful lifestyle and stop hitting himself with a hammer all day!

Unfortunately for John, if we were to tell him to put down his hammer and go for a relaxing walk outside, or to take a nice warm bath, he would probably say, “I’m way too busy to spare any more time for relaxation!”

Ironically, people who feel this way about relaxation are usually the ones who need it the most. Even worse, some people are so incredibly busy that they do not even realize how chronically stressed they really are. It’s not until they try meditation that they realize how much noise and calamity is roaring around in their mind. The noise is so overwhelming that their conclusion is “I can’t meditate. This is way too hard”.

That’s an erroneous conclusion. A more accurate and beneficial conclusion sounds something like this:

“Wow. My mind is out of control. This can’t be normal or healthy. I need to change my life and make relaxation a much higher priority”.

You Can Meditate!

Inner stillness is actually a very normal, very natural part of life. Look into the eyes of a newborn baby and you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.

The stillness you were born with never left you. That profound peace is within you right this very moment, but you have probably piled up a lifetime of noise around it.

To go beyond that noise and reclaim your own inner stillness requires very little in the way of effort. All you really need is the intention to be still and the desire to experience peace in your life. Let your meditation flow from this intention. Let your choices in life flow from this desire and you will know stillness again.

Binaural Heaven – 47 Binaural Beat Videos

To understand how brainwave entrainment works a understanding about brainwaves will be helpful. The 4 most common brainwaves are beta (13 hz – 30 hz), alpha (8 hz – 12 hz), theta (4 hz – 8 hz), and delta (0.5 hz – 4 hz). Although all 4 brainwaves are active in the brain at all times, one of these patterns is usually dominant depending on whether you are busy, emotional, relaxing, sleeping etc. Your dominant brainwave pattern is responsible for your state of awareness at any given moment.

Following is a brief description of the beta, alpha, theta, and delta brainwave states:

Beta waves (13 to 40 Hz ) – Beta is identified with active, busy or anxious thinking and active concentration.

Alpha waves (8 to 12 Hz ) – When we begin to relax or begin to get drowsy, but are still awake and conscious, when we are day dreaming, we are at the alpha level.

Theta waves (4 to 8 Hz) – When we are asleep and have dreams, and experience rapid eye movement (REM), and have hallucinations, and even when we experience deep meditation, we are at the theta level. When we lucid dream (this is when you are conscious while you are dreaming) we are at the theta level.

Delta waves (0.5 to 4 Hz) – Delta waves are usually associated with deep, slow brain activity found in deep sleep. Delta waves are experienced predominantly in newborn infants, as well as in healthy adults in deep rejuvenating sleep, or in very deep states of brain enhancing, emotional cleansing, bodily renewing meditation.

Other brainwave states are:

Gamma and HyperGamma brainwaves (30 hz – 100 hz) which are usually very weak in the average person. However recent studies show that gamma brainwaves have been found to be very strong in Tibetan monks while doing a Loving Kindness meditation.

Lambda brainwaves (100 hz – 200 hz) are very high brainwave frequencies associated with wholeness, integration and mystical experiences. Furthermore, lambda brainwaves have been found to ride on epsilonbrainwaves in the range of 0.5 hz or lower. (Recently the brainwaves below 0.5 hz have been classified as a separate band called Epsilon.)

Those who are advanced in meditation experience hyper gamma and lambda brainwaves which are normally very weak, or even nonexistent, in the average person. Mystical consciousness is associated with hyper gamma and lambda brainwave activity where epsilon brainwaves are present.

Your Brain On Brainwave Entrainment

Your brain is comprised of approximately 100 BILLION neurons. A neuron is a specialized cell that transmits information via electrical chemical impulses that travel from one neuron to another via neural synapses (pathways between the neurons).

Depending on the messages being transmitted, these impulses move from neuron to neuron in a regular pattern (a brain wave) that can be measured using specialized equipment called an EEG.

Scientists have been able to use the EEG to distinguish 5 distinct brain waves that equate to 5 different mental states that can be generally described as…

  • Gamma: 30-60 Hz: Associated with compassion, empathy, decision making under stress, and higher brain functioning and processes. Gamma Frequencies are found naturally in higher amounts in long time meditators. It is thought to improve clarity of thought and believed to improve intuition.
  • Beta: 13-30 Hz: Wide awake state and associated with sensory motor awareness. Focused and alert, analytical thinking, learning new information quickly. Usually associated with peak mental and physical performance, but is also associated with stress and anxiety.
  • Alpha: 8-13 Hz: Associated with lighter meditative states and super learning. It is a relaxed yet alert state of mind ideal for positive thinking and creative problem solving. It is used to elevate mood, reduce stress, enhance creativity and is believed to bridge the conscious and unconscious mind.
  • Theta: 4-8 Hz: This is the dream state and is ideal for creative inspirations, enhanced visualization, deep meditation, deep relaxation, inner peace and a general sense of well-being. Key state involved in energy healing work. Believed to increase inner wisdom, enhance intuition, and reduce stress.
  • Delta: 0.6-4 Hz: This is deep sleep with no dreaming. It is associated with physical healing and recuperation, healing of the limbic system and may positively influence symptoms of PTSD. Believed to help with inner growth and wisdom, deep healing, and recovery from trauma.

At any given time a person’s overall brain wave pattern is a combination of the alpha, beta, theta, delta, and gamma brain waves and each of these patterns, in general, equates to different mental, emotional, even spiritual states.

Brainwave Entrainment technology has been designed to entrain your brain into specific brain wave patterns, hence enabling you to move into a desired mental/emotional state.

Brainwave Entrainment is based upon the discovery by a Dutch scientist named Christian Huygens in 1665. Huygens observed that when a number of clocks were put in a room, the pendulums would eventually all synchronize with one another’s rhythm, no matter how intentionally off rhythm they were started. He called this tendency to synchronize entrainment. This natural entrainment was so precise that even alignment with the most advanced machines could not get them synchronized as well.

The human brain also follows the same kind of entrainment response, responding to rhythmic outside stimuli (for example drumming), shifting brainwaves until they moves into synchronization.

Brainwave Entrainment technologies capitalize on this Frequency Following Response (FFR) to help guide the listener into a more desirable state. A number of different methods are used, including…

  • Binaural Beats: Binaural beats are two frequencies played at the same time to produce a third frequency that is used to entrain brainwaves. For instance, a 340 Hz sound played in one ear and a 350 Hz in the other would produce a 10 Hz wave which, in turn, entrains the wakeful relaxing brainwaves mentioned above. This effect is produced in the brain.
  • Monaural Beats: Monaural beats are similar to Binaural Beats in that 2 tones are used to create the entrainment beat. The primary difference is that the 2 tones are combined in each of the left and right channels of the stereo field. Because Monaural Beats are not produced in the brain but rather in the sound itself, they can be heard without headphones.
  • Isochronic Tones: Isochronic tones utilize equal intensity tones, varying pulse speed, and work by synchronizing the brain waves to the rhythm. It’s a fine art to create Isochronic tones that are both pleasant and effective but when done well they are proving to be a very powerful entrainment tool.
  • Proprietary Technologies: Research into new more effective brain wave entrainment methods continue and we are at the forefront. Our Super Mind Music collection uses special combinations of the above technologies in addition to other proprietary methods that all aim to give the listener an ever more enjoyable, powerful experience.

Another benefit to regular brainwave entrainment listening not mentioned above is that in order to enable the entrainment to take place new neural connections (synapses) are formed between the neurons. These synapses enable many new pathways for information to travel, which in turn increases both the flexibility, creativity, and information holding capabilities of the brain.

In other words, listening to brainwave entrainment, just by its nature, makes you smarter.

Enhance Meditation with Aromatherapy

 

Meditation alone can be incredibly healing and restorative, but it
is also possible to enhance the benefits by combining it with other
modalities like music, color therapy, and holding or placing
specific gems and crystals on the body while meditating.

Aromatherapy (www.simplyaroma.website )is another option that works well with meditation
because specific scents can easily inspire corresponding moods and
enhance visual imagery.  Depending on the purpose of your
meditation, you could choose various scents that would complement
it.  For example, some scents might induce a sense of peace and
well-being while others would be better for boosting confidence,
enhancing mental clarity or stimulating creativity.

Below you’ll find recommendations for various scents that will
complement different types of meditation.  There are a few ways to
disperse the scent through the room, including burning scented
incense, warming essential oils in a diffuser, or even dabbing some
on a scarf and draping it around your neck.

For energy and motivation:

To boost your energy, motivation and personal power, try a
meditation that boosts your mood first, like visualizing an
inspiring or exciting scene.  You can imagine something that hasn’t
happened yet, remember something wonderful that happened in the
past, or even recite empowering affirmations mentally.

For invigorating aromatherapy scents, go with “spicy” choices like
those associated with warmth and energy.  Try cinnamon, ginger,
cedar, orange, lemon, grapefruit, patchouli, mint, nutmeg,
allspice, coffee, or mocha.

For peace and serenity:

To induce a peaceful, serene state of mind choose relaxing imagery,
like envisioning yourself relaxing on a beach, walking slowly
through a quiet forest, or even soaking in a warm bath.

You’ll also want to choose softer scents to go along with the
meditation, and floral scents usually work well for this purpose.
Try violet, lavender, gardenia, carnation, rose, jasmine,
honeysuckle, magnolia, or lilac.

For healing and well-being:

Healing meditations can include anything that inspires a sense of
well-being.  One popular choice is envisioning a cloud of beautiful
light flowing around and through your body, dissolving all illness
and discomfort.  You can make the light any color you want, as well
as adjusting the brightness or softness, or focusing it on specific
areas that hurt.
