Meditating With Holosync
I'm pretty excited to share the meditation Holosync with all of you. I started this program in the beginning of December 2014, and after about two weeks I was able to get into an elevator a few times in one day while working a wedding without totally freaking out. I was shocked. I was also really thankful to come across the Holosync program because I was struggling with meditation. I know how important and beneficial it is. From the podcasts I listen to and the blogs and articles I read, some of the most grounded, centered, balanced, high performing people all say that meditation is a part of their routine. A friend of mine also credits curing her panic attacks to meditation. I KNEW it was something I needed to do.
A friend and I committed to 60 days of meditation, and it was a struggle. I attempted to meditate ten minutes every day, and it didn't seem to get easier. I tried guided meditation with the app Head Space, meditation tracks I bought on iTunes, and I practiced different mindfulness techniques. My brain just seemed to be SO crowded and all over the place that I wasn't finding noticeable, substantial improvements.
Then one day, my husband asked me to listen to this demo track from a meditation program he found. I put in my ear buds, listened to the 20 minute track, and when it was over I had completely forgotten where I was. I was SO relaxed. The track is comprised of rain and the sounds of bells that melt you into relaxation. I was immediately intrigued how this works!
So, how does it work? Here's the short of it....you can read a more detailed description on the website. The creator Bill Harris found in a study that electrical brain wave patterns resonate to certain frequencies when presented with audio tones of certain frequencies. Essentially, the tracks you listen to guide your brain into the brain waves that are achieved with years and years of practice. Your brain will align with the meditative patterns of a zen monk. All you have to do is listen to it every day.
The first track is 30 minutes and you listen to that every day for two weeks. After the two weeks, you add on the second track of 30 minutes, totaling an hour. I know, who has time to listen to a meditation track 30 minutes or an hour every day. The program says that you can set your alarm an hour early, put the headphones in, fall back asleep and that you will still get the benefits. You can literally do it while you sleep. I often put it in when I get into bed to go to sleep. It definitely helps relax me and knocks me out every time. I personally like to do it when I'm awake because I feel like I see the benefits more and come out of it extremely relaxed, but I most often do it when going to sleep, or in the morning by setting my alarm earlier and falling back asleep.
The program is not free, but I do feel it has been worth the investment! Meditation is one of those techniques that will never go away. It benefits countless people and in countless areas of our lives. Learning to quiet your mind, be more present and mindful is one of the best things you can do for yourself. Whether you decide to invest in Holosync or meditate in another way, just start somewhere. I have just found so much benefit from this program that I would certainly do it all over again. I feel like I have achieved higher states of meditation much more quickly than I had with the other techniques I was using. Like I said earlier, after two weeks, I was able to get into an elevator without having a complete meltdown.
