Brainwaves, Brain Reprogramming and Human Potential by Ismini Apostoli

“The unconcious has many faces: dustbin and reservoir, childish fantasy and wise vision, coward and hero, destroyer and creator.” D. Glouberman

It is a well-known fact that our brains are electrochemical organs, made up of billions of neurons which communicate with each other by sending electrical signals. When examined by medical equipment like electroencephalographs, brain activity is displayed graphically in wavelike patterns, which are called brainwaves.

Although the different frequencies of brainwaves are not always clearcut, there are gradations within each category, or the categories are often intermixed, basically there are 4 general categories of brainwaves.

Beta Waves

These are the waves that our brains generate when we are wide awake, active and engaged in mental activity, usually involving more the left hemisphere, which is the rational, reality-oriented hemisphere of our brain. When beta wave activity becomes very intense, in actuality, our brain hemispheres become less synchronized in their functioning.

Alpha Waves

These are lower frequency waves, which are generated when we are in a relaxed state and not actively engaged in rigorous mental, problem-solving or task-executing activity. For example, when we are executing routine tasks, like taking a shower, putting on makeup, doing light housework, we are usually in alpha waves. Our thoughts are really not concentrated and our minds wonder freely. When we are engaged in relaxing activities, or when we are meditating, we are usually generating alpha waves. When in an alpha state, a person is more receptive to suggestions, since beta activity, with its reality-checking orientation is no longer in charge. Creativity, and creative visualization can be facilitated by alpha waves. Our brain hemispheres become naturally synchronized, or in-phase with each other.

Theta Waves

The frequency of these waves is even lower resulting in deeper relaxation, and sometimes trancelike states, where the mind feels as though it may have gone to sleep although it hasn’t. Prolonged daydreaming, or meditation can induce this low-frequency brain activity, during which an apparent “loss of time” may be experienced, or the person might say that he had lost touch with the real, material world and was “elsewhere”. Theta waves are also conducive to visualization and creativity and the mind in this very relaxed state is even more receptive to suggestion and hypnosis. Here, too, our brain hemispheres are synchronized and we experience wholebrain functioning.

Delta Waves

This is the slowest band of waves that our brains produce and they occur when we are in deep, dreamless sleep. These waves are very beneficial for the body which restores and heals itself when in this state.
The brainwave patterns that are of interest to our discussion are those of the alpha and the theta waves. Precisely because our reality-oriented, critical, conscious mind is relaxed during these states, they are ideal for embedding affirmations and suggestions directly into the subconscious without the reality-testing filter of our conscious mind.

The power of the subconscious mind is recognized by all schools of psychology, no matter what terminology they choose to describe it. Within our subconscious are contained in a very compressed and highly interrelated form all our observations, experiences, learning, interpretations, thoughts, beliefs, values that we have accumulated over the course of our lives. This data in our subconscious mind is uniquely subjective in that it has been combined with emotional states to produce what comprises our unique mental programming.

Once this mental programming has been established it is as if we are operating on automatic pilot. Our core beliefs, what we believe to be true about the world, ourselves and our relationship to it, and our automatic thoughts, which are off-shoots of our core beliefs tend to form our choices, and shape our destiny. The subconscious mind does not distinguish between reality or fantasy but just accepts our conscious thoughts as facts and instructions. For this reason, new research and technology on how to directly influence the content of our subconscious, by inducing alpha and theta states and using affirmations and suggestions can greatly help in reprogramming the subconscious mind and encourage new, more constructive and positive behavior.

Brain Wave Entrainment is a procedure of balancing the left and the right hemispheres of the brain, causing whole brain functioning and inducing brainwaves to a specific frequency, usually alpha or theta, which are our most receptive states to suggestion and change. While binaural beats are frequently used to induce brain hemisphere synchronization, monaural beats – which do not require the use of headphones – are quite as effective.

We all know that repetition is key to learning of any kind. By repeatedly listening to suggestions while in a relaxed alpha or theta state we can achieve a great variety of results:

  • We can enhance our creativity and intuition.
  • We can improve our learning ability, memory, and concentration.
  • We can improve our physical and mental health.
  • We can increase our confidence, reduce stress and depression, overcome addictions, program ourselves for healthier eating patterns, etc.

All that is required is that we religiously set aside some time, usually 30 minutes, every day to listen to our program, which we can design according to our specific goals.

Gradually, as the subconscious begins to accept the suggestions, a gradual shift is experienced in feeling and thought about the specific issue we are addressing. Our self-talk, our internal monologue, becomes influenced by the suggestions/affirmations of our program. Soon, we “catch” ourselves repeating these suggestions as a new response to events or stimuli in our lives. For example, if we are using the affirmation “I am successful” in our program, when we accomplish something in our daily life, this affirmation will automatically begin to run through our conscious mind. In time, our behavior changes and as our behavior changes so do our results. As we observe our new results, our sense of satisfaction, progress and accomplishment further reinforces the process of reprogramming our minds. Now, our conscious mind can also participate in the process, because it can no longer refute the new beliefs, attitudes or effects – and when conscious and subconscious work together in harmony all sorts of results are possible for us.

    Thank you for this interesting article. I have a question..

    when using brainwave entrainment technology, is there a way to tell when your brain is actually entrained to the supplied frequency? I find when using BWE that I drift in and out of a trance like state, and spend quite a lot of the time actually listening and hearing the track and all the beats. There are even times when throughout the entire track, that I experience no discernible state change, and end up listening actively to the entire track. What does this mean? And what can I do to improve the effectiveness of the track that I am listening to?

    Thanks

    I am not the expert – but have learned some things from the experts that may answer your questions. The first is that our brain is not operating in just one state – it is always (or almost always) in a combination of states. So just because the beta (busy mind) is activated it does not mean you aren’t getting full benefit from the Brain Wave Entrainment process.
    The different states do have different signatures that you can pick up on with practice. Beta is easy – it’s the state of the busy mind – and you can tell it’s active because you are thinking a lot
    I learned to identify alpha by looking for specific body sensations that become pronounced as the brain quiets. With me I notice a tingling in the palms of my hands. With others it may be a sensation of heaviness or lightness or warmth.
    Theta is where you begin to lose the sensation of body boundaries – and it may feel as though you are floating.
    Conscious Delta is the place where Energy Healers and Intuitives work.
    As far as how to make it most effective. I believe it is important to dedicate yourself to the process – not listen while exercising or reading or talking to anyone. It’s best to keep eyes closed and get interested in the process. If you have a meditation technique you like you can use it – but it’s not necessary.
    Sometimes I like to go into a brain entrainment session with a specific question I would like answered. I have gotten some awesome insight that way.
    Those are my thoughts – would love to learn what others think

    Thank you for the interesting article.
    My question was can one use two different brainwave entrainment programmes together or should one concentrate on listening to just one particular track.
    The second question is as your brain adjusts to these brainwaves and changes are taking place, do you feel pain and feeling of ‘ants walking all over your head’.
    I would love to hear some comments on these

  7. AdminCyndi says:

    Over the past four years I have worked with Brain Wave Entrainment Programs (BWE) from three different sources. In each case, the creator of the program strongly recommended working with audios from only one source, at least in the early stages. There are a number of different technologies used to create the entrainment effect, and using more than one of these technologies at a time may decrease the overall effective of them both.
    Within each system there are a number of different recordings, designed to accomplish different things.
    In the Super Mind Academy, where I am presently a member, we are given a choice of recordings to listen to each day for a month. At the end of the month we get access to a few more audios, which build on what we have accomplished during the previous month.
    In addition to the new recordings we are also free to listen to the recordings from the previous month, and many of us do. We are also gifted, throughout the program, with specific BWE audios designed to accomplish specific goals (ie creativity or increased focus). We are given instructions on how to use them along with the training audios.
    As for the side effects you mention…
    We are essentially energetic beings (here the Quantum Physicists and the Spiritual Leaders agree). Without going into too much detail (though this is a favorite subject of mine), energy can sometimes get stuck, causing blockages. Some believe that all forms of suffering – physical, mental, and emotional, are caused by these blockages in the energetic flow.
    BWE works in many ways to clear these blockages, opening areas within us to an energetic flow and a restoration of wholeness.
    Some experience interesting side effects during the clearing process, such as “ants crawling over your head” (though I like to think of it as a head massage) as well as other body sensations, temporary fatigue and periods of uncomfortable emotion.
    All that being said it is important to point out that another thing that happens during BWE work is that we become much more aware of what is happening within our bodies. This awareness can, at times, bring to our attention a medical concern that we may not of otherwise been aware of. That is why it is always highly recommended that we pay attention to the signals our bodies are giving us, and to take anything that is of a concern to a medical professional.
    Again – these are just some of my thoughts. Would love to hear what others have to say

  8. Tami says:

    You know, I keep trying to have some kind of experience with meditation or BWE and I have spent A LOT of money on all kinds of CDs and software. I have yet to experience anything in any way and it has been years of practice. I want to believe because it is hard for me to come to grips with the thought that this is all there is to life. Wake up, drag through your day, fight your way through some argument that arises with some idiot that has screwed up some account of yours, clean up everyone’s mess from the day before, talk to nobody except kids, (don’t get me wrong, they are great!) no friends, husband is intellectually bankrupt, etc. etc. Every day I am truly grateful for everything I have, and believe me it is substantial. What I don’t have is a passion of any kind, and I don’t seem to emotionally feel anything, ever. My mom used to say, “Find something you love to do and it won’t feel like work and you’ll be surprised people actually pay you for it!” I guess that is the problem, I have never found anything that I love doing and I’m 44. Now please, I am not trying to throw a pity party, I am just trying to express some of the reasons I look for something else out there. So far, I haven’t found it. Would like to know if anyone else has had as hard of a time with this. All of the BWE and meditation stuff promises life changing results, that I will be amazed. Still waiting………..

    I totally agree with you, Tami. I am still waiting for the promises of “Life Changing Results” after listening and reading all the BWE and practicing meditation for several months now.

    Even taking a proactive approach to life in general, things are still the same; no change for the better. Very Disappointing!!!

  10. Ben says:

    Hello Everyone,

    I would like to ask those that aren’t seeing results, where you are being taught?
    I have noticed since I became interested in this subject how much garbage is out there. It’s kind of like that movie “The Secret”, its full of people that tell you how they used the law of attraction to achieve their dreams. Can you see what’s wrong yet? Where is the how to? Where is the nitty gritty get your hands dirty way to make it all work? The sad truth is that most of the courses out there are more of the same, I have seen big money being charged for “good content” about this stuff, however it is more of the same, interviews, etc. of people talking about how its worked for them. Still NO HOW TO!!!

    I don’t want to sound biased or anything but right here at mind evolution and the super mind academy, I have received the “how to” and it is working in my life and it’s extremely affordable. You will not find a better “how to” out there, if there even is another!

    Sincerely,
    Ben

  11. Tami says:

    Hi Ben,
    I didn’t mention any names before because I did not want to necessarily give any of the programs a bad rap. Since you have inquired, I will tell you a few. I have tried Holosync, Binaural Beats, Silva Ultra Mind System and The Sedona Method. If you are familiar with any of these you know that they are pretty in-depth. Also, these are just a few as I mentioned before, I am unable to remember all of them at this point. I personally know people who have had tremendous results with two of these programs so I don’t want to give the impression that it is their fault that I just have no results. No offense but I have heard your comment many times over the years and it always sounds condescending. “Well, silly girl, if you had just done it MY special way, you would have found the answer.” Bah. I think that sometimes it really is impossible to change your stars. I used to deeply believe one could, and that is possibly the only “change” I have gotten out of any of this.
    Namaste.
    Tami

    Hi everyone,
    All this programs are learning devices. They are tools that will help you, they don’t do the job for you! When we went to school, we learned lots of subjects. After graduating, we choose one direction and continued, or we went to work. WE TOOK ACTION. We also have to take action in our life situations. If we start meditating and doing all this kind of programs, but don’t change our life style, nothing will happen, everything will stay the same. But if we really start by changing our attitude towards our life, and acting differently, then we will see results. And all these programs are a big help, but they are not the solution. At least, that is how I see it.
    Blessings to all.

  13. John says:

    Thanks for sharing your experience Cyndi.

    Tami, I hear what you are saying, and understand your frustration. Basically, Ben is correct that there is a lot of crap out there. I do however think that some of the programs you mentioned are not the bad ones. I did a lot of research into using BWE technology before I tried it, basically making sure it’s safe to use.

    BWE does a few interesting things. It encourages new neural path growth in your brain. At the same time, it encourages greater left/right brain synchronism. It is well known that people sometimes don’t see results immediately, while others feel something straight away. This is just the same as where some people are easily hypnotisable, and others say they ‘cannot be hypnotised’. Each person has a different threshold that needs to be overcome before they start to feel the benefit. I have been meditating for many years, and never really felt the benefit. I started using BWE, and it’s taken many months to just start feeling the effect of the track.

    I have however felt huge differences in my life, but I cannot give credit to BWE alone. Using BWE is an ongoing process, and it’s an ideal way to get your mind into a state where it’s receptive to re-programming. Re-programming is the key to real change. Each of us have limiting beliefs that prevent us from living life to our full potential. These beliefs have been programmed into us by our parents, our schools, the media, our early experiences etc. For the rest of our lives, these beliefs cause us to live to mediocrity, rather than life up to our full potential.

    What do you think separates a rich man from a poor man. If we have 2 men of equal age that come from similar backgrounds, and their lives take very different paths. One becomes a wealthy person, the other stays poor. What separates them? Their beliefs. Mostly their beliefs in themselves, and their ability to succeed. It’s this programming that we need to change to achieve the results we know we are capable of, just can’t quite reach.

    In this process, BWE is just one of a number of tools that can be used. It is scientifically proven, with the use of EEG monitors, that BWE does in fact cause the brain to oscillate at the entrainment frequencies of the tracks. It’s also proven that the brain states mentioned in the article above are exactly as written. By changing the state of the brain, re-programming becomes possible.

    Bear in mind that the mind is a very powerful thing. Just as the limiting beliefs cause one man to prosper while the other struggles – so is it possible that you can affect the ability of BWE to allow changes to your programming. It’s much the same as believing that you cannot be hypnotised, making hypnosis very difficult.

    I urge you not to give up on your quest to improve your life. You deserve it.

  14. HI everyone!!!
    Being the author of the above article, I am really glad it has aroused so many questions and so much interest. First of all, you should listen to the programs, audios, or whatever of one company only and not try to combine many of them all at once. Second, it really does not matter whether sometimes you are actively listening or drifting or falling asleep. The good work is taking place anyway! Third, as I mentioned in the article it takes a while for the suggestions to get embedded, usually about a month of listening every day. After that, I suggest that you listen to your recordings once or twice a week. We know from studies about conditioning that it is best to repeat the conditioning on an on/off schedule, rather than continuously drilling the mind.

    Finally, I would like to assure you all that it does work, but you should not expect any spectacular results, but a gradual progress in whatever program you have designed for yourself, or have bought.

    Thank you all, for your lively interest. Will be checking back to see if there are any other questions.

  15. Don Pinge says:

    Hi Tami, and Everybody,
    John hit a very important point. If one does not believe they can be hypnotized, either they can’t or it will be very hard to do. This goes for both external stimuli or self stimuli (choice to listen to soundtracks of BWE, etc.).
    In reading your post, Tami, I sense frustration, not only with your lack of progress, but with your feeling of what’s going in in the world around you, as it affects you.
    I was where you are, not being able to “get there”. I have made significant progress in the last 5 to 10 years (I’m nearing 54, now), and I believe I have done this through the method of taking a 3rd party objective view of myself, my thoughts, my actions, my rections and my behavior. I have learned, in all reactions, both mental and outward, to “push the pause button” (in the thought process, this only takes a fraction of second), and ask myself; “Is this the best appropriate response?”; and; “Is this the person I really want to be?”.
    I have learned that the ‘reactions’ we have to any given situation or thought have, by most people, been learned through our formative years from all of the “normal” sources. But, most of these things are not really ‘appropriate’, as these things are what has been passed on through generations without ‘due discernment’ as to being ‘appropriate’, or not. (The bulk of the population follow incorrect paths.)
    Start to implement the ’3rd person, objective’ viewpoint of yourself and evaluate if you are viewing and reacting appropriately to the world, as you would truly do as a person you would admire. Monitor all self talk the same way. On other words, monitor your ‘total self’.
    I found it amazing how I not only found so many facets of myself I wanted to change, but also of how much more aware I became of the world around me…the good things, that is.
    One other important thing that may help, is not only chaning the way our brain works, as in “whole brain functioning”, but in our knowing of what, or who, we really want to be. This takes more basic knowledge. Broad knowledge that can only be learned by more interaction with more sources. I have incorporated a lot of reading through a lot of years, from self improvement sources, spiritual sources, scientific and professional sources, and the like. As a kid, I loved to read science fiction. You may not follow this interest, but follow things that expand your feelings of possibilities, as opposed to other people’s ‘situations’ (soap operas, reality shows, romance novels, etc.). Science fiction certainly led to “more possibilities, for me.
    You may need to develop “You”, in this sense, in order to get a better idea of how BWE can help you ‘go’ there. You need somewhere you what to “go”. This is a thing I had to deal with, even though I was doing so many ‘right’ things for a long time.
    Try other things in life. Ever go rollerblading, motorcycle riding, hiking, camping, visit art galleries or floral shows or home shows? Ever get into real baking or learn about health and nutrition, or sales and marketing? Or how your experiences can help other people?
    Take these things as from someone who does not know you (as I don’t), but as ideas to go in new directions to develop “You” to help yourself “go there” with a positive and loving expectation of what you will find and become.
    As for the movie, “The Secret”, as others point out, no, it does not give the ‘how to’, but is a wonderful movie in that it is an introduction to “more possibilities”, and intro to the energetic laws and principles of the universe, and how to use them to sculpt our lives the way we would most like to see them. But, an intro is all it is, and should lead to more research, learning, etc., as to “how to”. The principles behind the intro are sound, and are being evidenced by quantum physics, after eons of use by peoples the world over, more commonly known as mystics or metaphysicians. It all works.
    Most important in finding “You’, and creating a great life using the Law of Attraction (as from “The Secret”), is going forward while mentally looking at the life you desire, poitive things and expectations, and not at the ‘crap’ you have experienced in the past. The past does NOT equal your future. Create your future, do not re-live your past! You can choose. Choose joy and happiness. Spread these things. Change the way you react (reactions are habits, change your habits with “the pause button” and thinking, and making choices for better responses.)

    With Best Intent!

    Tami,
    One other thing. You opened with saying “You know, I keep trying to have some kind of experience with meditation or BWE…”.
    I have learned that “the experience” in meditating or in BWE is kind of like ‘no experience’. I should be, in other’s words, “going into the void”, or, “allowing a quiet mind”. The object is to completely ‘clear’ your active thinking processes and just “be”. “Be” one with the universe.
    IN “trying to have some kind of experience”, you may be working on some expectation that is contrary to the purpose of meditation and BWE. Try working with NO expectation, NO trying, other than learning total mind relaxation and release.

    Hope this helps,
    Don

    it seems that tami has hit a sore point. I know how she feels wonderful results don’t seem to happen to me either. I have been in this self improvement thing since I was a teenager. upon reflection i have come up with a few ideas that might help.sometimes we PUSH too hard.Sometimes we EXPECT too much.Sometimes we are too Rigid for the outcome.Sometime we are too CRITICAL of ourself and others.Sometimes we are too skeptical(this works for others BUT NOT FOR ME)> RESENTFUL
    Why are they charging so much(Why is there Silva, Super Silva, Ultra
    Silva)after reading all the claims the mental noise is like hawsters in the street with testimonials appearing as shills. With all this going on it’s a miracle we manifest anything.BUT- I am not offering this as an answer-sometimes we have to apply the light touch, the easy does it method. If it happens fine if it doesn’t,what could i have done differently. Some of best experiences happened without me knowing what I did to bring them about.If we can get our ego out of the way we would do better.One example I always hated math and did poorly in it. I had to tAKE pre req. math at Fordham ist quiz I got 10
    out of 100. The prof. said that this was because of a negative attitude implanted by a poor teacher ergo change the attitude. So instead of hating math i started to say I love math, I love this math book, I love this math class, I started to do better. When i had to take the mid-term my spiritual teacher told me to merely have an open mind and act as if I were taking dictation from God or the Universe=I got a 100% on the mid-term; 98% on the Final-WOW-It still rocks me.
    Theres a lesson in there somewhere unravel it and prosper and have a happy life-EVERYONE- Love- Phil

    Hi Tami,

    my feeling is that you may have given up yourself . I would like to encourage you to go ahead in your quest… I can feel your disappointment as well as your sadness, but you are not alone. There are lots of people with similar issues and anything can change for the better.

    You don’t have to listen to other’s promises. The only promises you should listen to should be the ones you give to yourself. You are the only one who can decided if something feels good or nor for you.

    I had also experiences with Holosync, Sedona Method, Yoga, Zen, etc. Let me give you a quite “material” example on this. Every person has something special and when we choose to have a relationship with someone we generally tend to resonate with them fully (at least this has been my experience in the past). Then, as time goes by, you may notice that things seem to develop in a different way as you have hoped, and after years you may finally notice that this relationship may not give you further stimuli.

    This may be a very simplistic way of describing things, but what I want to say is that I consider any of the described self-help methods bad – they may just be useful for some time, then as you may have changed/developed they may not resonate with you any more. I look at every experience – as bad it may have felt – extremely important. It’s my history, it’s in the past, but that was something I have experienced and now I let go of the past.

    Personally, I consider Brainwave Entrainment a wonderful tool that, compared to conventional meditation, gives me the opportunity to accelerate immensely my meditation progress.

    What is the progress I have reached so far?

    1) I am much more relaxed

    2) I have a higher ability to focus on issues and to find more effective solutions

    3) I am much more positive

    4) I am more interested in spiritual subjects

    These are just a few major results in my life. They are great for me, from my point of view. But I think everything may be subjective, isn’t it?

    I want to underline one thing, though: the progress I have been experiencing so far can be considered the result of a kind of “joint venture” between the various powerful techniques I have been learning and practising so far at the Super Mind Academy. BWE is just one training “discipline”.

    At the SMA we are also learning and practising both Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Hypnotic Language, as well as Adaptive Response Training Technologies.

    You are the only one who can decided to enter our Community. I am not making any promises, since I do not know you and don’t know your potential. Maybe the SMA could be the most fantastic and life-changing experience in your life or maybe it could be just another cornestone…

    Anyway, Anything starts from you, you will have to take responsibility for your choices and your commitment.

    You can subscribe to the Super Mind Academy for just $ 4.95 for the first month. If after almost one month of training you will see no progress or you simly won’t like it, you can choose to unsubscribe.

    I can guarantee you “just” the following things:

    - You will find a loving and very supportive international community of people from all walks of life and very different backgrounds truly committed to help you with your daily exercises and or questions/issues. It is a steadily growing family of people who are making a difference in their daily lives.
    - Exercises/tools which can become extremely powerful if applied regularly and consistently everyday. What can you expect from doing these exercises on a regular basis? Well, one thing would be that you become more aware of your language, and, as a consequence, you would change your way of thinking and, therefore, the way you act.

    Wouldn’t this be enough to start with?

    Tami, you have the choice. Choose wisely…

    Be Well,

    Francesco

    Some of your comments are helpful, some are just more of the same rhetoric that comes from some of the mind control programs. Oops, did I say mind control? Anyway, I appreciate the feedback and I would like to point out a few things. First, I have been doing this stuff and searching for about 10 years. Second, I have ACTIVELY engaged in these activities involving “change of attitude” “3rd party ego check”, etc. Third, I have also tried just letting go of expectations and just allowing things to just “be”. I do not have critical self talk, as a matter of fact, I am the only authority I respect. I want to thank Phil for his response, very interesting. I am critical of others although I do not expect too much from others or programs because, well, I’m critical of them, heheh! But seriously, from the responses, although none really hit on the problem directly, it helped me to eliminate what the problem wasn’t, and thereby identifying a possibility. Here it is….I think I am just too self centered! Self absorbed, in love with me, narcissistic! My ego is somewhat justified only in the fact that I actually do have a genius I.Q. (and no, that does not make me more important, although I used to think it did) and I have absolutely no habits, vices or anything else that I see as a sign of mental weakness. So I think I subconsciously resist anything that tries to change me at all… so while I am not actually hindering my life, I am also not advancing it. Unfortunately, I’m not sure I can get past this because I really don’t want to give up my vision of myself. I know, it sounds crass.
    To Don P, I also read extensively. I read EVERYTHING!! I’ll bet if you named a book, I could probably tell you I own it or have read it. I had all of the “Lord of the Rings” books and “The Hobbit” read in three weeks when I was in the eighth grade. I can also meditate effectively and can completely stop my thoughts through sheer will. I am told that this is the answer to having experience with meditation, but I still see no changes large or small.
    By the way all, I have never watched “The Secret” I don’t know how you all got on that dead horse. I read a copy my mom had and just thought it was fluff. Stop assuming that I am using that stupid movie as a basis for comparison!
    Patriciq, sweetheart, you really said it, very simply. “EVEN TAKING A PROACTIVE APPROACH TO LIFE IN GENERAL, THINGS ARE STILL THE SAME, NO CHANGE FOR THE BETTER. VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!”
    You are all great, I love to have and interesting conversation with intelligent people and I apologize if I come off as a b***h. I am admittedly a nerd and not very good with people. This aspect of my personality doesn’t bother me, but it seems to bother others! Again, my apologies. Someone once told me that you can’t change your own life until you start helping others. Perhaps I should work on my people skills so I can do just that!
    Namaste,
    Tami

    OK Tami! Bravo!
    Good response. Yes, giving and helping is a great path. I hope you find it helpful in your journey.
    As for the movie, “The Secret”, I didn’t necessarily mean that for just you. I saw it mentioned in other posts, thus my salutation to include “everybody”. As for it being just fluff, sure, it is for many people, as many have traveled far beyond the intros to LOA, as it sounds you certainly have.
    As for my take on it, I am past that, too. But, as a “teacher”, I recognize it as a valuable source of introduction to the ideas and principles it presents, and I am one who seems to be able to retain that perspective of “the beginner”, which helps me immensly in helping ‘newbies’ to begin their understanding. The ‘newbies’ to LOA understanding are apparent in their amaxement and attraction to the material.
    Carry on! You do display great stength! Use it wisely (I feel you will;)).

  23. HI Tami,

    Some of the ‘struggles’ that you have had described are more common that one would think with people with a calculated IQ above 150.
    I’ve seen it many times. Hence the expression “too smart for your own good”.

    I never really like that expression, although it may close to accurate in your case. I really don’t know for certain.

    Here are some of the repeating patterns I have found with people that are genius IQ that are less than productive to self-evolution.

    #1: ….they usually input information into their brains far more than they output. Lots of learning…not enough doing. This phenomena seems to exist because of the intelligent person being able to run “what if scenarios” on multiple logical levels thereby giving the illusion of “doing”.

    #2:….they usually have extremely fast “decision or opinion strategies” based on an over-reliance on what is believed to be objective logic. These strategies can be so fast that they tend to function as if they were complete unconscious.

    #3…..they have a tendency to “chunk down” in terms of logical processing far more frequently then they “chunk up”. In some cases I’ve seen an apparent disability to their ability to “chunk up”
    Being able to “chunk up” and “chunk down” in terms of logical processing, is very important to a healthy, balanced brain.

    Tami…I do not know if any of these things apply to you. What I can say is that after reading your last post, I see many language patterns that continue to support those struggles that you may like to change.

    I have found creating new linguistic habits seem to produce the best results with people that report the kind of struggles that you are reporting.

    I know that I’ve offered no solution at this juncture. Perhaps I’ve created an insight, I don’t know.

    I will check back another day to read any replies,

    InJoy,
    Jeff

    Hi Tami

    I don’t want to seem rude, so please don’t take my comments as such.

    What exactly are you trying to get out of meditation / self improvement?

    You are obviously very intelligent. You can do anything you set your mind to. Being able to quiet your inner chatter at will is amazing, and is probably one of the more significant benefits of constant meditation. Most of us are meditating to quiet that voice – you already have it sussed.

    Maybe you should consider no more personal improvement as such. At least not directly. Put that amazing intellect (and ego) to work. You have the constitution to do something big with your life. Maybe all you need now is to find your hearts desire and do it.

    You may not agree with me, but I have a feeling that you haven’t found your true purpose in life. You may be doing very important work, but it’s not completely satisfying you. If this is the case, you will always feel like something’s missing, and no amount of self-help or meditation will improve this.

    Be well
    John

    The past four months have been the most educational and transformative in my life. Using the combination of the teachings provided and the BWE tracks has helped me become the person I knew was hiding inside. I am bolder, more confident and out there sharing my gifts. My family and friends are amazed at the change from bookworm to social butterfly. Even when I was downsized I was able to switch effortlessly into resourceful states thanks to the training provided.

    I purchased a BWE system from Transparent Co. in Jan. 2007 and used it regularly until November 2008. Then I switched to using only the ones provided in this system. The jump in my ability to visualize and experience beauty everywhere is beyond description. It is easy for me to make meaningful connections in short periods of time with people, to really hear what they are saying with their mouths and their gestures.

    The peace and inner knowing I feel is worth the cost of the entire program. In the past when I was given a problem to solve I would meekly offer one with my head down shoulders hunched. Yesterday during an interview when presented with a hypothetical problem I came out with five solutions and then looked behind me wondering who said those words that came out of my mouth.

    The peace and inner knowing I feel is worth the cost of the entire program. For me value of the monthly teachings and support from forum members is priceless.

    It is the way all the trainings are broken down and actual real life applications that make this program easy for anyone to use no matter where you live. There are forum members from everywhere in this lovely planet supporting and guiding each other on this exciting journey.

    I encourage you to get involved, the fees are nominal and the results are priceless.

    So many interesting comments! I have a question I’m hoping someone can help me with? In my 50′s I now find that I have serious adrenal exhaustion due to my inability to turn off my “fight or flight” switch. I’ve been using Holosync for about 5 years now and am wondering whether it may be making my emotional anxiety worse not better? I’m really struggling with this and would really appreciate some advice please!

    Hi Derek;

    I have been playing with the wording of my response for a few minutes now – mostly because I didn’t want it to sound like a sales pitch. The truth is that I worked with Holosync for over 3 years before I began working with the audios in the Super Mind Academy. It was only about a week or two into the SMA training before I put my Holosync away. Additionally – I realized just recently that the amount of sleep I need has decreased – to about 5 or 6 hours a night – and that those things that use to really push my buttons – they just don’t anymore. Within the SMA Jeff doesn’t just provide the BWE audios – he also has audios designed to specifically help with many different things, including healing. And trainings that really help bring a sense of emotional control to our lives that many of us hadn’t experienced before. The wholeness of the experience is difficult to put into words.
    With any medical concern it is important to work with medical professionals when deciding what course to take. From all that I have learned – I do not believe that Brain Wave Entrainment “causes” any medical condition – but it can, and often does, make any pre existing medical conditions more obvious.
    If I can be of any further assistance – please email me at cyndi@evolutionezine.com.

  28. Hello Derek,

    I would agree with Cyndi that BWE does not cause any medical condition. If you have been using Holosync for 5 years and you have not been helped with your “fight or flight” switch, perhaps it’s time for you to try a different approach. Without knowing much else about you, I guess that you probably have an over-reactive nervous system, and other methods would work better for you. Have you tried EFT or the Sedona Method releasing technique? They work much better for people who are extraordinarily prone to anxiety because they work with the feelings directly.

    Tami,YOU ROCK! I,often have had the SAME THOUGHTS,DISAPPOINTMENTS over the years …I’ve also reaD EXTENSIVELY,and attended MANY seminars,conferences all on metaphysical,’out there’ topics. I’ve been into BWE and subliminal audios,and visuals for years. However,my problem,seems to be one of not sticking to the program for an anaquate amount of time. But,in the long run,I have to say,that all of my past involvement in these subjecys,and pont of views,has made me a better,more tolerant and compassionate person-I am striving to ALWAYS keep my thoughts positive,non-critical(SUCH a challenge alot of the time!~).and also to be non-judgemental about people and situations. I realize that my childhood history,environment had alot to do with my overall negative outlook(I thought everyone was like that at first),but all the exposure to this type of thinking has really turned me around. I DO BELIEVE we as individuals have the POWER TO CHANGE OUR SITUATION/ENVIRONMENTS,ANYTHING ,with our thoughts(Quantum Physics confirms it as well-it’s absolutely amazing when you read about the latest research on it),so,DON’T be so hARD on yourself,you ARE BEING CHANGED-have you done any reading on DNA activation? To me,that’s another AWESOME PROCESS that we all can avail ourselves of(check out Gregg Braden and Bruce Lipton)-also,there are countless informative videos available for free,on YOuTube(reference:metaphysical,DNA activation,immortality,etc) It’s out there,and it will change you-keep thinking POSITIVE,and request assistance from the Universe,with gratitude. All the Best,June K.

    May I just utter some words,I just am expressing my vast ignorance, so please feel free to discard whatever you do not agree to.
    Having read all the above sincere and erudite comments and I did relish the insights from such diverse angels and prespectives, there is little I can add to the might of wisdom already scattered in the above posts. Mostly all the contributors are active participants in their own lives striving and or shaping the outcomes with their prolonged will.I discovered in moments of mind numbing moments of constant soul searching that, when the exact solution (as we intend it to be or manifest it to be) eludes us the answer is simple that a higher truth or realization still awaits us. At times from the debris of this frustrating soul crunching defeatist surrender comes the humble spark of victory… which alights our path in the direction of our destined destination,at times chaos is the best order.
    With all humility!

    Hi everyone. I’ll just get to the good stuff right off the bat. I have had massive success using the dream program technique. The area I have had the quickest success in is emotion control. This includes everything from fear, anger, depression, worry etc. As I’m going to sleep I say something like this “I will have dreams tonight that will cause me to release my fear of speaking in public” for example. I’ll say that about 30 times. When I awake and think of speaking in front of an audience I can’t remember what it felt like to be afraid to speak in public. The fear is still gone so the results seem permanent. I then used dream programing to get rid of all my fears. I can’t even begin to tell you what it feels like to wake up every day and be excited about life because I have erased my fears. I have done the same for pent up anger, worry, depression etc. Any negative emotion I have I can erase with a dream program in this manner. I also got family members to try this and it worked for them as well. I have been doing a dream program to bring me a million dollar per year income. This one hasn’t happened overnight, but recently I was approached by a business man who asked if I’d be interested in a job that would bring in one million dollars per year or close to it. It hasn’t happened yet but the wheels are in motion. I am constantly experimenting with this material and any new successes I have I will post. I wish you all the best in your journeys!
