The SoundMind System - Harness the Power of Your Mind
English | Size: 523.02 MB
This is a four-level meditation course, each program uses the gentle sounds of rain layered with the subtle yet powerful binaural audio entrainment technology which takes you from the Beta brainwave state all the way down into the low Delta brainwave state, the deepest meditative trance-like state of awareness.
The SoundMind System uses the same scientifically validated technology as Holosync, Hemisync, any binaural audio technology program, only at a fraction of the cost. This technology is simple to use and inexpensive to create, so why pay thousands of dollars f an expensive mult-level system? Our technology is equally as effective as any of the other programs. Me expensive programs simply have higher marketing costs and overhead and a much larger profit margin.
This is a four-level program designed to take you to progressively deeper states of meditation. It is offered as a set of high fidelity mp3's. They can be played on an ipod other mp3 player burned to CD's using itunes another mp3 to wave converter f use in a ptable CD player. We found that most people converted the CDs to mp3s to use in their iPod so we are offering this as a less expensive option than paying shipping fees and waiting f CD's that you will most likely only use once to load onto your computer.
Note: The effectiveness of binaural audio is the same f .mp3 files as it is f compact disc (.wav files).
How the technology wks...
In a sense these soundtracks are a guide that will help to "meditate you". The program takes full advantage of the benefits of binaural audio research and uses this technology to synchronize your right and left brain hemispheres. The two separate background stereophonic binaural audio tones will "entrain" your brainwave patterns while white noise layered with the sounds of rain in a Vermont fest provide a soothing feground to produce a meditative Ganzfeld Effect. (see Wikipedia f definition of Ganzfeld Effect)
Binaural audio they can be explained easily. When tones of two different frequencies are presented, one to each ear, the brain detects phase differences between these tones. Under natural circumstances a detected phase difference would provide directional infmation to alert the listener. However, the brain processes this anomalous infmation differently when these phase differences are heard with stereo headphones speakers. When each ear hears an independent distinct tone, a perceptual integration of the two tones takes place, producing the sensation of a third 'beat' frequency. The mathematical difference between the tones waxes and wanes as the two different input frequencies mesh in and out of phase. As a result of these constantly increasing and decreasing differences, an amplitude-modulated standing wave binaural beat, is heard. The binaural beat is perceived by the listener as a distinct rhythm pulsing sound at the frequency of the mathematical difference between the two audity input tones.
Synchronized brain waves have long been associated with meditative and hypnogogic states, and audio with embedded binaural beats has the ability to induce and improve such synchronized states of consciousness. The reason f this is physiological. Each ear is 'hardwired' (so to speak) to both hemispheres of the brain. Each hemisphere has its own olivary nucleus (sound-processing center) which receives signals from each ear. In keeping with this physiological structure, when a binaural beat is perceived there are actually two standing waves of equal amplitude and frequency present, one in each hemisphere. So, there are two separate standing waves entraining ptions of each hemisphere to the same frequency. The perceived binaural beats contribute to the hemispheric synchronization causing the desired meditative and hypnogogic states of consciousness. Brain function in general is also enhanced through continued use of binaural audio by increasing the cross-collosal communication between the left and right hemispheres of the brain.
The frequency of the lower of the two tones is what is called the carrier frequency. This frequency is what determines the "power" of the soundtracks. The lower the carrier frequency, the larger the amplitude of the sound waves. An example of this found in ocean waves. The lower frequency waves crashing on the beach are the huge giants and tsunami's that contain immense power, the higher frequency waves are the smaller lapping waves and the ripples on the water when the wind blows across the surface. The power of the larger waves is vastly me intense than the power of the ripples on the surface. The same is true of the carrier frequency. The lower carrier frequencies are much me powerful to entrain our brainwaves.
This program is a progression of four levels: I Adjustment, II Intermediate, III Advanced and IV Master User. It is advised that the listener start out using the I Adjustment program and move subsequently through the entire sequence to Master User. The reason f the gradual progression is f the listener's safety. As we start listening to the binaural technology, the brain can only handle the "smaller ocean waves". Each time we use these soundtracks we are giving our brain a wkout. In der to synchronize the right and left sides of our brain, the brain must create a bridge of communication. These are the neural pathways that connect the right and left hemispheres. As we start out, our brain makes new pathways in der to make this synchronization easier and me efficient. As we get used to the beginner levels of the SoundMind program, we can start putting me power through these neural pathways until the brain reganizes itself to be able to handle the larger "Tsunamis" found in the Intermediate, Advanced and Master User levels.
All of the program soundtracks start at a 12Hz beat frequency and gradually decrease to a frequency of 2.5Hz . The beat frequencies go through various stations, 12Hz f alertness and concentration, 7.83Hz the Earth's Schumann Resonance f enhanced serotonin release and mood elevation, 4.5Hz f enkaphalin release which helps reduce stress, 2.5Hz f the production of endogenous opiates, pain, anxiety reduction and a complete euphia and endphin release. Your brain cells will reset their sodium & potassium ratios when the brain is in the low frequency theta and delta state. The sodium & potassium levels are involved in osmosis which is the chemical process that transpts chemicals into and out of your brain cells. After an extended period in the Beta state (nmal wking consciousness) the ratio between potassium and sodium is out of balance. This is the main cause of what is known as "mental fatigue". A brief period in Theta (about 5 - 15min) can reste the ratio to nmal resulting in mental refreshment.)
Recent research perfmed by Dr. Vincent Giampapa, M.D., a prominent anti-aging researcher and past-president of the American Board of Anti-Aging Medicine, revealed that Binaural audio technology dramatically affects production of three imptant hmones related to increased longevity, stress, and enhanced well-being: ctisol, DHEA, and melatonin.
Ctisol is a hmone naturally produced by the adrenal glands. Accding to Dr. Giampapa, ctisol is the maj age-accelerating hmone. It also interferes with learning and memy and is, in general, bad news f your health and your well-being.
Ctisol is the "stress hmone," and the me of it you have, the me stressed you feel...the me susceptible to disease you are and the faster you age!
Another hmone, DHEA, is also produced by your adrenal glands. DHEA is a precurs, source ingredient, to virtually every hmone your body needs. DHEA level is a key determinant of physiological age and resistance to disease. When levels are low, you're me susceptible to aging and disease; when they're high, the body is at its peak-vibrant, healthy, and able to combat disease effectively.
DHEA acts as a buffer against stress-related hmones (such as ctisol), which is why as you get older and make less DHEA you are me susceptible to stress and disease.
A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine (December 11, 1986) found that a 100 microgram per deciliter increase in DHEA blood levels cresponded with a 48% reduction in mtality due to cardiovascular disease-and a 36% reduction in mtality f any reason!
DHEA is very imptant!
Melatonin, everyone knows, is a hmone that helps to create restful sleep. We make less of it as we age, and since during sleep many imptant rejuvenating substances are created in the brain, the inability to sleep soundly can dramatically decrease the quality of your life and greatly accelerate the aging process. New research also reveals that it is a powerful antioxidant. In fact, it is even me powerful than Vitamin E.
So how does Binaural audio technology affect levels of these three substances having so much affect on the quality (and length) of your life? In a befe and after study of 19 people using Binaural audio technology the following changes were noted in levels of DHEA, ctisol, and melatonin:
In just three days, over 68% had increases in DHEA levels, with an average increase of 43.77%. Several people had increases of 50, 60, even 90%. Ctisol, on the other hand, was down an average of 46.47%, with positive changes in 68% of the people, and with several people having decreases of 70 80%. Melatonin levels increased an average of 97.77%, with positive changes happening in over 73% of the people. Many had improvements of 100, 200, even 300%.
Description of the Listening Procedure...
Start by sitting in an alert posture with the spine straight and perpendicular to the flo. You may use a chair whatever else you find aids your comft while meditating. Many people use meditation cushions sit Indian style in a half full lotus posture, but THIS IS NOT NECESSARY, and should not be the primary goal of meditation. Using stereo headphones, listen to the I Adjustment program f the entire one hour program. Continue this practice once twice daily, whenever you feel like meditating. The me often you sit, the faster you will progress. Continue using I Adjustment f a minimum period of 4 months. After 4 months of Adjustment, you may try using the next level of the program, however if you feel any discomft, discontinue use and revert back to I Adjustment f another month of use. Continue this process until you are consistently using the next level of the program. Repeat this 4 month process f each subsequent program level until you are using IV Master User. The carrier frequency of IV Master User of 35Hz is quite low and will continue to be beneficial.
BONUS SOUNDTRACKS INCLUDED F ATTENTION AND LEARNING
The bonus soundtracks Attention and Learning Aid, may be used as often as needed. The Attention soundtrack is used whenever mental focus and concentration is needed. Simply listen to the track following the above instructions. However, the track can be used indefinitely beyond the 4 months. Learning Aid may be used while reading studying to help in memy retention. The track may be set to repeat indefinitely. The listener is advised to keep the volume at a very low setting, this will allow the soundtrack to have the intended effect while not distracting your attention away from your tasks.
!!!WARNING!!! Do not start with the advanced programs...
If you do, you may experience nausea and dizziness, and a sense of disientation. You may not feel acute symptoms of disientation, however you may experience mental fatigue from wking out too hard. The brain is not equipped to be able to handle the deeper tones of the advanced carrier frequencies without a gradual adjustment. They will be ineffective if used too quickly as a result of the side effects you may experience. Please Note: Epileptic patients are advised NOT TO USE ANY BINAURAL AUDIO SYSTEM, as this technology may trigger the onset of epileptic seizures.
SoundMind is fully compatible with your own meditation practice...
The SoundMind program can be used in conjunction with many other techniques of meditation, as its own stand-alone meditation aid. Simple breath awareness is a useful tool to help concentrate the mind while using the SoundMind program. Simply watch the breath as it comes into the nostrils and then again as is goes out of the nostrils. Pay attention to the sensation of the touch of the breath as felt on the outer rings of the nostrils. Be aware of the instantaneous change of direction from inhalation to exhalation and then again from exhalation to inhalation. As you develop distinct awareness of the four parts of the breath cycle, you will find the mind becomes very quiet. Awareness of the natural flow of breath is a very useful tool and an excellent daily practice to be used in conjunction with this system. The breath awareness technique will take persistent practice to master but is one of the most effective and commonly used techniques of meditation throughout the wld.
