We’ve heard it many times. Positivity is key to success. Or that the mind can effect great changes. But how exactly do you harness both positivity and mind to produce maximum results? We’ve outlined it for you in 3 steps.
Step 1: Ask engaging, positive questions instead of using typical affirmation commands. The brain naturally resists new beliefs even if the old ones suck. As we saw in the “affirmation vs. questions” article, asking leading, positive questions is a more scientifically proven way to minimize this resistance thus increasing self-motivation to change beliefs and behavior.
Step 2: Make your positive questions subliminal. While consciously saying powerful questions to yourself is far better than saying affirmations, making these questions subliminal will supercharge your results. You see, using subliminal, Inner Asking questions places these questions into your subconscious mind, where it will have a profound effect.
Making your positive questions subliminal not only bypasses your critical conscious mind, going directly to your subconscious mind, it literally helps to positively change your entire view of yourself, the world you live in and what’s possible for you.
Step 3: Apply brainwave entrainment. Now you know “what” makes your brain more receptive to changes. We now ask “how?” How do you create an optimal environment so that asking directed questions works most effectively? Here is where brainwave entrainment enters. You may ask, “Brain what”?
Let’s explore what brainwaves are. You brain comprises billions of neurons producing spectacular bursts of electrical activities to communicate with one another. This electrical activity is known as brainwaves because of their wavelike patterns as reflected in a special equipment called EEG. Further, brainwave electrical activities differ depending on your current mental state. So brainwaves of someone alert called “beta” frequencies are totally unique compared with someone deeply sleeping who produces what we call “delta” brainwaves.
Now brainwave entrainment uses external sources like sounds or light pulses to alter present brainwaves into frequencies like slower alpha and theta brainwaves associated with desired behaviors such as enhanced learning, creativity, relaxation and focus. The tones often use are called binaural beats. The sounds themselves don’t create the changes. It’s the difference between two slightly varying pitched frequencies that creates the changes in brainwaves and consequently, consciousness state.
Because we often have no control over our brainwave patterns, entrainment makes this possible instead. By doing so, you can experience faster changes like calmness and stress reduction. Hence, brainwave entrainment is often dubbed as “meditation-made-easy”. It produces the same rewards of meditation within minutes unlike traditional meditation which takes years to master. And how does brainwave entrainment answer our previous question of “how”? In two ways actually.
First, entrainment further lowers conscious and subconscious resistance because it stimulates, quickly but gently drifts you off to the very brainwaves serving as pathways to your subconscious: your alpha then theta states. As you go deeper, you effortlessly release the filters of your consciousness and make it more natural for these positive questions to become part of you by impressing on your subconscious. Simply put, the deeper you go, the more effectively you can use your mind to create desired changes. And these can be achieved without falling asleep so you still retain part of your consciousness while leaving its “shortcomings” behind.
Second, not only does it lower your conscious and subconscious defenses, brainwave entrainment also puts your brain within a state that boosts specific goals like an instant switch. Yet, it’s no magic pill. Like asking thought-provoking questions, brainwave entrainment has strong scientific basis. If you need to relax and go to sleep, studies show your brain reduces stress producing cortisol levels during entrainment. If you need to feel happier and heighten your energy, brainwave entrainment can effortlessly increase your “happy hormones” or serotonin levels.
However, brainwave entrainment doesn’t begin and end with binaural beats alone. The many benefits of brainwave entrainment cannot be encompassed by the limited capabilities of binaural beats namely: a) requirement of using headphones so each brain hemisphere can identify the distinct tone received by each ear b) impossibility of training each brain hemisphere separately because by their nature, binaural beats have to be combined as pulses or beats in both hemispheres to produce results and c) finally, their inaudibility also weakens any overall effects.
If binaural beats doesn’t fully optimize the powers of brainwave entrainment, what does? This brings us to the final step…
Embed Entrainment into Music. We’re well-aware of the power of music to influence mood, affect emotions and shape perception. So why not use this within brainwave entrainment technology? With the patented neuro-programmer 3 technology, embedding brainwave entrainment into any music file is now possible using a highly unique feature called “frequency band selection”. This harnesses the power of modulation to adjust particular components of sound like volume to target specific frequencies. While adjustments often result in a distorted audio format unpleasant to the ears, “frequency band selection” in particular only modulates certain selections in the audio file rather than the entire file so overall quality isn’t compromised. The final outcome is one that’s still “music to the ears” while producing the desired brainwave states even at higher intensity levels.
Many subliminal programs lack one or two of these steps or stop somewhere in the process. But though each step is distinct, they certainly aren’t independent of each other. Rather, they should all be combined simultaneously to achieve optimal success. By integrating brainwave entrainment into music as you ask positive questions, you can naturally harness the power of your mind to profoundly and willingly change your beliefs into desired attitudes and behaviours.
