Brainwave States & Meditation “HOW YOUR BRAINWAVES EFFECT YOUR MENTAL STATES” When we are feeling anxious, worried or stressed, higher or faster beta waves occur, producing heaps of cortisol which is known as the “stress hormone” and this is extremely bad for your health. What’s more, the more cortisol you produce, the more stressed you feel...the more vulnerable to disease you are and the faster you age! This overload of stress can cause us to experience headaches, irritability, tension and suffer sleepless nights. Sometimes we experience panic attacks, feelings of dread or we constantly feel tired, run down and completely overwhelmed. Many scientific reports have proven that "OUR BRAINWAVES EFFECT OUR MENTAL STATES" And while our mental state affects our brainwaves, the opposite is also true. Our brainwaves affect our mental state - we can actually control our mental state by controlling our brainwaves! Here are some comments from just a few scientific reports:- Dr. Elmer Green, prominent biofeedback pioneer, reports:- Increased learning ability, creativity, mental clarity, intelligence, and intuition... and positive changes in mental and emotional health. "With the creation of new neural pathways, more choices are available. Herein lies the theoretical explanation for the amazing personality changes researchers have reported in subjects using technology to change brainwave patterns." Increased Relaxation Dr. Margaret Patterson has shown that certain frequencies in the brain dramatically speed up production of a variety of neurotransmitters. A 10 Hz (alpha) signal boosts the production and turnover rate of serotonin, a chemical messenger that increases relaxation and eases pain, and catecholamines, vital for memory and learning, respond at around 4 Hz (theta). Delayed and Reversed Aging Researcher Robert Cosgrove, Jr., Ph.D., M.D., a biomedical engineer, notes that technologies altering brainwave patterns have great potential for promoting optimal cerebral performance … (and) long-term use may delay aging and deterioration of the brain traditionally associated with aging. NASA has been using EEG biofeedback for years to increase its pilots' ability to concentrate. Researchers Drs E. Green and K.S. Ozawkie report that, "theta feedback can be used for becoming aware of subconscious and superconscious aspects of mind in the same way that vipassana, a form of Buddhist meditation, is used. Vipassana is a meditation method in which the 'witness', or 'observer' aspect of mind develops. When mindfulness is achieved, the 'I' of a person is capable of watching what is happening in body, emotions, and mind without reacting. Experimentally, theta feedback and vipassana lead to states of 'mindfulness' that are so much alike that theta training might, without exaggeration, be called 'instrumental vipassana’." "There's a revolution going on. The present era in neuro-science is comparable to the time when Louis Pasteur first found out that germs cause disease." Candice Pert, Neuroscientist Physical Vitality Vincent Giampapa, M.D. of Longevity Institute International and vice president of the American Society of Anti-Aging Medicine, reveals that placing a listener in the alpha, theta, and delta brain wave patterns dramatically affect production of three important hormones related to both increased longevity and physical well-being: Cortisol, DHEA, and melatonin. Cortisol is the major age-accelerating hormone within the brain. It also interferes with learning and memory and is, in general, bad news for your health and your well-being.DHEA levels are a key determinant of physiological age and resistance to disease. When DHEA levels are low, you're more susceptible to aging and disease; when they're high, the body is at its peak -- vibrant, healthy, and able to combat disease effectively. Improved Mental Capability A study by Dr Siegfried Othmer, international leader in the field of neurofeedback and brainwave training, led him to conclude that brainwave training has exceptional effects on intelligence. On average, individuals experienced a 23% increase in IQ. Individuals that began brainwave training with IQ levels that were less than 100 have been shown to enjoy IQ gains of 33 points on average, in addition to significant improvements in reading comprehension, memory related tasks and logic handling abilities. A year later, a follow up with those involved in the study found major improvements in self concept, creativity and concentration. A study by Thomas Budzynski, Ph.D found that college students who used brainwave training technology drastically out performed those that did not in both academic tasks and by GPA. An M.D. associated with Dr. Siegfried Othmer used brainwave training to treat a boy with an IQ of 70 who was labeled as mildly retarded. A year later this boy was retested and the improvements were startling; he scored 60% higher with an IQ of 112. This specific case is consistent with a myriad of similar cases that have been documented with children with sub 90 IQ scores. Dr. Siegfried Othmer says that "brainwave training clearly facilitates the organization of mental functioning." A 2003 study at Imperial College in London supports the notion that brainwave training improves cognition. Neuroscientists Tobias Egner and John H. Gruzelier recruited test subjects at the Royal College of Music, London's elite school for promising young musicians. Some of the subjects learned, via feedback on a computer screen, how to control the slow waves in the alpha and theta ranges. After neurofeedback, the musicians' abilities had grown enormously, according to expert evaluators. How you benefit from various brainwave frequencies are listed in the following chart. The LifeFlow levels which incorporate these benefits, Gamma Tracks (Awaken and Nirvana) Creative Flow and Optimal Learning which incorporate specific frequencies are written in red :- I hope this gives you a clearer understanding of the tremendous benefits you can achieve through LifeFlow audio technology and how it can be an amazing lifelong aid to you. Thousands of people around the globe are enjoying tremendous benefits from LifeFlow and I’m committed to making this system affordable so it can be in the home of anyone who’s dealing with stress, emotional problems or for people who want to dramatically improve their lives. Here’s what Mr Miguel Hinojosa Nuevo Leon, Mexico has to say …….. "I see life in a much better and beautiful way" "It has been 10 months so far since I started meditating for the first time and, since day one; I could feel only GOOD THINGS happening in my body, my mood and the way I see things around me and most important…. how I react to things. I Must tell you (as a way to say thanks) …Lifeflow is a great product and it has become part of my daily routine….. I’m now using Lifleflow 2 and all levels have been great (gets better after each level by the way…) J I used to live really stressed and my behavior could change immediately if things did not go the way I expected so, I started looking for alternatives to calm myself and live happier so a friend of mine recommended me some videos of Deepack Chopra and Wayne Dyer. Both of them encourage you to MEDITATE as one of the most important ways to find the inner peace for a happier life… For this reason, I looked over the internet and found your page… EXCELLENT !! I read what you offer… read what the people say in the community ….all of them were very positive about meditation and LIFEFLOW as the tool to learn and help you through entrainment waves to get to a deeper states of mind. I ordered the program, followed the instructions and started meditating after a week. WOW!!!... excellent experience. I totally recommend everyone Lifelflow… just give it a try, take it seriously and do it DAILY (even if it is only 5 or 10min..) and you would see results. I have learned that everyone has it’s own results and really important is to let it go and expect nothing.. just enjoy it…. And it does work! Support and service from you is great and for this I have to thank you. Michael, Thanks for helping me live a much happier life. I have just started my own business. I now see and realize that I have a huge potential success in what I am doing and have time for my wife and daughter. I see life in a much better and beautiful way and yes.. it is a lot of good things inside each one of us (just we have to give time to ourselves)."
