"Any therapy without meditation cannot help much." ~Osho
The purpose of meditation is to calm the mind and release the
ego's grip so you can experience the oneness of Reality and the
truth of who you really are.
Have you ever tried to meditate when you were emotionally distressed or when your mind was so busy that it wouldn't be quiet? This is a major problem for beginning meditators. It can be so frustrating that they simply give up. Ironically, these are the people who need meditation the most.
Brain scans done on advanced meditators like monks, nuns and yogis show that they make different brainwave patterns than beginners do. The waking mind functions primarily in a beta brainwave state. The faster the beta frequency, the more distressed you feel. As the brainwaves slow during meditation, you feel more relaxed, and the grip of the ego is loosened.
You can slow your brainwaves to an alpha pattern by closing your eyes, breathing deeply, and doing relaxation techniques. But what if you could go even deeper and change your brainwaves to those of an advanced meditator? What if you could experience deep theta and delta brainwaves? These are the brainwaves that accompany experiences of the Transcendent. In the past, only the most advanced, long-term meditators (after meditating for over 30 years) could do this at will.
Modern science has provided us with a way to speed up the process of personal growth by inducing these slower brainwave patterns with sound technology. I've been using a program called Holosync, designed by Bill Harris, for over 10 years now.
I can't even begin to describe the transcendent experiences and advances in consciousness that this program has induced. It has literally rewired my brain. I went from having chronic depression, phobias and social anxiety to being peaceful and happy most of the time.
Research shows that people with anxiety disorder (a severe form of chronic anxiety) always have brain lateralization, which is an imbalance between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. Holosync synchronizes the hemispheres by balancing the brainwaves.
Holosync for Healing
As a life coach, I sometimes work with clients who have experienced narcissistic abuse. I highly recommend Holosync as part of the healing process. During my first few years of doing Holosync, I had many experiences that helped me to heal, including retrieval of forgotten memories and the development of new parts of myself. All of this just naturally happened as my brain created new neural connections in response to the technology.
Bill Harris says that Holosync raises your threshold for what you can tolerate. I noticed that after doing Holosync for two years, the chronic pain from my arthritis had greatly decreased. Nothing had changed in my physical body - only my brain had changed. My tolerance for emotional stressors like difficult people and situations also increased so that things that used to bother me no longer felt overwhelming.
Incidentally, any kind of trauma, such as narcissistic abuse, can lower a person's threshold. How would your life be different if you could raise your threshold, become more resilient, and increase your ability to handle challenges?
If a client were to ask me whether they should do Holosync or life coaching, I would honestly answer that Holosync is the best choice. Holosync works on the unconscious level, which is 95% of your mind. Life coaching works on the conscious level. Of course, I think that people should do both. Why limit yourself to only working with one part of your mind?
Holosync with Other Types of Meditation
Ken Wilber says that the fastest way to become a skilled meditator is to start with a binaural beat program like Holosync, which trains your brain to experience the deeper brainwave states during waking consciousness. Then you can add traditional meditation, in which you learn how to induce these brainwave patterns with the power of your own concentration.
I found that after a year of doing Holosync, I was able to get into deeper meditative states during my regular meditation. Without Holosync, I probably would have needed many years of training with a meditation teacher to reach the same level of skill that I reached after one year of Holosync.
Bill Harris says that one year of Holosync is equivalent to about 8 years of traditional meditation. So I've been meditating for 80 years already! That explains the profound experiences that I've had.
Adding Gamma Compassion
After two years of doing the regular Holosync program, I learned that Centerpointe had a CD that you can add called Gamma Compassion. It helps the brain to create gamma waves, which are a type of brainwave seen in monks who do Metta Bhavana practice, also known as Loving Kindness meditation. During the first year that I added Gamma Compassion to my regular Holosync, I noticed some remarkable changes. First, I started lucid dreaming. My energy body began developing very quickly, and I eventually experienced the opening of all my chakras. Second, my intuitive abilities increased exponentially. I began having frequent clairvoyant and clairaudient experiences. Finally, my emotional intelligence increased. I was more aware of my own emotions, as well as those of others. Awareness is the foundation of compassion.
I recommend Holosync to all my clients, friends and family members. I believe it is the single most important thing I've done in my many years of personal growth work.
In my own coaching practice, I've seen rapid growth in clients who use Holosync, and I know it's not just because of my coaching :)
