The state we are in at any time, (alert, relaxed, “in the zone”, dreaming, etc.), correlates directly to our brain’s electrical frequency patterns. You can see this on an EEG or many other monitoring devices, such as the EmWave by HeartMath. Practically speaking, if you can manage your brain’s frequency range focus, you can also manage your state. Tune your frequency pattern and you can improve your performance, attain a relaxed or meditative state (or fall asleep) quickly, sharpen your thinking, etc. So how does one do that?Leila and I have been using CenterPointe’s HoloSynch CDs for the last 5-1/2 years, and seen (felt) the benefits. These programs help tune your frequency patterns in pre-programmed ways, and encourage the left brain and right brain to better synchronize their communication activity levels together. It works.But how do you do it on a book budget? How do you learn to manage this yourself, without special equipment or programs? It’s actually easy, and fun. The best resource so far is Anna Wise. She has recently published a book called THE HIGH PERFORMANCE MIND: Mastering Brainwaves for Insight, Healing and Creativity that I’d highly recommend, along with other books and CD programs. That’s the one to get.Another I’m reading now is called THE OPEN-FOCUS BRAIN: Harnessing the Power of Attention to Heal Mind and Body, by Les Fehmi. Slightly clinical but helpful too. Brain Wave Management techniques are clearly explained and exercises provided to make your life fuller, more enjoyable, and help optimize your state to resolve any problems you might be dealing with. Go there.
