How brainwave audios can transform your brain power

One of my favorite topics is “brainwave entrainment“. “Entrainment” is about training your brain to work at optimal levels.

The neurosciences continue to shed light on the remarkable tool we all possess – the brain – and how we can literally train our brain to function optimally – in ways we prefer.

Have you ever wondered how your habits are formed?

The first time you think (or do) something, a neural pathway is created in your brain. Then as you think that thought again and again, the neural pathway becomes stronger.

An easy way to think about this natural process is when you walk across a stretch of grass. You leave light footprints – the grass is flattened somewhat.  But if you continue to walk across the grass in the same place – gradually a path forms.  In time it can become a very well worn path.

The brain’s circuitry operates in a similar way

As you think certain thoughts, it becomes easier and easier for you to continue to think them.  And when a strong emotion is present with the thought, the neural pathway is etched more “deeply” – it becomes stronger – faster. This applies to all emotions – whether they are “positive” or “negative” emotions.

When we label people (or ourselves) as “optimistic” or “pessimistic”, what we’re actually doing is referring to a habit of thought developed over years.  The thinking has become an automatic “set point” if you like – an automatic way of looking at the world.

The presence of a strong emotion

Recall a memorable event in your life – a birthday party, a graduation, the birth of a child, an amazing holiday…. the reason you remember the event better than thousands of other more bland events is because of the “emotional context” of the experience.

The presence of a strong emotion (excitement, happiness, joy, fear, anger, anxiety) – serves to reinforce the neural pathway in your brain – associated with the thought or experience.

How can you change an unwanted habit?

One of the easiest ways to change an unwanted habit is to start practicing the new thought or action you prefer.  With continued practice, you will create a new neural pathway, a new habit of thought or behavior.  In time, if you stop the old habitual thinking or behavior, the neural pathway associated with it, will literally shrivel up and fall away from dis-use.

The brain (and our whole body) is very efficient. It prunes away the “dead wood”.

Listening to brainwave audios

You can train your brain to respond even faster by listening to a backing track that contains an optimal brainwave pulse – such as the alpha state or the theta – or even delta states. In other words, by listening to professionally made “brainwave” audios designed to move your brain into optimal states.

Being “in the zone”

The alpha state of mind is when you are “in the zone” – you are feeling relaxed and confident. Your senses are alert and you are performing well.

This is the state you see top athletes in – when they are playing well. They seem to have an uncanny ability to sense the next move required. Their body moves effortlessly.

Dr Joe Dispenza and the Change Process

I recently listened to a new interview of my favorite scientist/ change practitioner – Dr Joe Dispenza – by Collete Baron-Reid.

Collete asks Dr Joe about the role of our subconscious mind in the change process. Listen to his explanation – about 15 minutes into the interview..

He also mentions that he’s releasing a new book in April 2014 (hard cover) – called “You Are the Placebo: Making Your Mind Matter “

you are te placcebo by dr joe dispenzaFrom the book’s description..

“Citing many amazing individual cases studies, this compelling book will empower you to personally use “the expectation of a particular outcome” to alter your internal states—as well as external reality—solely through the action of your mind. It offers the necessary understandings to change old beliefs and perceptions into new ones.
In addition, it teaches a model of personal transformation that correlates with the placebo effect—without the need for any external influences (“placebos” such as sugar pills, saline injections, and so on).
You Are the Placebo combines the latest research in neuroscience, biology, psychology, hypnosis, behavioral conditioning, and quantum physics to demystify the workings of the placebo effect . . . and show how the seemingly impossible can become possible.”

How To Break the Habit of Being Yourself

In his latest book, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself, Dr Joe Dispenza explains you are not doomed by your genes and hardwired to be a certain way for the rest of your life.  He talks about the new science of the mind (neuroscience) and how it is emerging that all human beings have the ability to create the reality they choose.

Are You Doomed By Your Genes To Be A Certain Way?

Every day for the past week or so I’ve been listening to self help neuro-scientist Dr Joe Dispenza. There are few people who explain the creative process – with greater clarity – than Dr Joe.

How we think and how we feel directly impacts what we “get” every day in our life. If you’re interested in taking control of your life (and destiny), watch a sample clip with Dr Joe Dispenza – Your Immortal Brain – where he talks about mastering the art of observation or focus.
