Wow, you put a picture
Erika, do you still use the HoloSync CDs? Did you ever try anything else (i.e., Hypnotica's Sphinx of Imagination audio) for a "meditation assist"? Reason I ask is because I've tried a couple of Buddhist mantras, an audio CD program, and simple Christian scripture reading off and on over the years, and gotten nothing that really "works" to truly clear my overactive mind. Is there a product you feel you can honestly give a testimonial on? General opinions on finding something that works for you? A blurb? Do tell.
hi BenPaul,Thanks for your comment, it's always nice to hear from you.Yes, I still use Holosync. I started with the intro a few days before Burning Man in August 2007. I'm now on level 12. I recommend it very highly. I never tried the other brands of biaural sound technology because I liked this one. The most powerful combination of all, in my opinion, is Holosync alternated with Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). Meditation dredges up subconscious crap ... bringing it into conscious awareness, where it can then be quickly cleared using EFT. Most people have no idea what kind of garbage beliefs they have stored away in their subconscious mind. Yet those beliefs are creating the reality they see, so -- for example -- they may have the same crappy relationship over and over again because they're replaying old scripts.The Holosync/EFT combination essentially allows us to get down into the operating system of the mind and rewrite the code that's hidden there ... this erases the "static" from our vibe and results in massive transformation of our daily lives.I've written a lot about Emotional Freedom Technique (easy to find the articles by Googling "emotional freedom technique" and "awakening from the dream"). Does that help?cheers,Erika
p.s. as for your "overactive" mind, the great thing about Holosync is that it does the work for you. no more wasting time "trying" to meditate. your overactive mind doesn't stand a chance ;-)Also, I listen to Holosync at night while I sleep. There is no better use of time than that!
One thing I've noticed is how much more efficient my mind is now. Projects at work take much less time now, and get finished with much less mental strain and effort. It's kinda like rebooting your computer every night. The clutter (such as mental chatter) gets cleared out so that the entire system functions more effectively.
Hemi-synch from the Monroe Institute is also excellent. Yes you just switch on, lie back and it 'does the work for you'! Project Meditation does a variation and has a free 15min download which I saved to cd and play on loop - it's fabulous.I've been using the short tapping sequence suggested by Robert Smith on YouTube. He uses NLP with it too. I'm finding this short sequence is having very rapid and beneficial effects. It feels 'portable' too so I can do it anywhere!Heartbeat x
Your last post about efficiency & clarity is exactly what I expect and hope to get out of the proper meditation practice. My practice with the audio program I have (the same one found here http://www.amazon.com/Ultra-Meditation-5-Level-Transcendence-System/dp/1892805022) is still new, so the benefits may build to a more noticeable level over time.For Erika, and for Heartbeat as well: with the programs you use, do you find that you need a proper stereo environment - i.e., headphones, or speakers directly in front of you? This doesn't fit with the scenario of listening while falling asleep (at least for me), but it does seem that the stereo separation is an important part of the "binaural technology."Also, for Erika: I don't know much about what you do, but I'd be interested to know if your work is creative in nature, and whether the meditation speeds up your left and right brain functions equally, or whether you primarily feel the benefit in, say, multi-tasking & distraction management, or in focused creative work, et cetera.p.s. Yes, I like EFT as a combo to what meditation I have done. Heartbeat, I haven't watched the Robert Smith videos, but there was a fascinating one I stumbled upon by a ... (checks) "magnustapping" that used EFT for chakra clearing. I loved doing that one, and have repeated it since, to good effect.
BenPaul - ah yes I've come across magnustapping as well. He used the longer sequence incorporating the fingertips (from Gary Craig). I personally like Robert Smith's method because it prevents me from getting in my head - the spoken words are fewer so I'm not conscious of words, I'm focused on my body sensation. Regarding Hemisync, I have a portable cd player opposite the bed and I feel a calming effect. I really struggle to sleep with headphones or earbuds, but sometimes I decide I really need a full dose lol! At Project Meditation they claim to use a range of beats, not just binaural, and that headphones are not essential. I certainly found the sample very effective, though I felt a bit bombarded by their email advertising (so I unsubscribed).I feel grateful to have such choice of healing available. I experienced very rapid change using Hemisync - as Erika says, my thinking became clearer, my periods of anxiety reduced to minutes rather than hours and my confidence in my creative work increased.Heartbeat x
There is extreme benefit to old style seated meditation. If you focus on your breath for 15 minutes a day, you will notice a change over time. It never seems to work at first, because you are becoming aware of how chaotic our minds are naturally. This is a good thing, and not something to be discouraged by. In fact you will always have thoughts. Just note them, and bring yourself back to your breath. They say that the masters still get distracted several times in their meditations, they just come back to the breath sooner.There are NO shortcuts to growth and spirituality. Aha moments are not for sale at Target.
To Anonymous at 7,20pm - your Target remark feels unnecessary to me - we are on the same path. Heartbeat
7:20 - Thanks. You addressed some concerns I hadn't even properly voiced yet. Do you blog? I could spend some time reading about your own experiences.Heartbeat - I just made the trip to project meditation and got their free sample. Will try it this evening.Thanks,Ben
