Are a Few of the Scientific Techniques Behind Them?
by Dr. M. Gedde, MD, PhD
They start with
soothing "White Noise" (similar to the sound of ocean waves) which is
like the visual Ganzfeld effect. This helps you clear thoughts, relax and open
subconscious mind more to suggestion, preparing the way for the next
A soft heartbeat
sound in the background begins at a frequency of 60 bpm (beats per minute).
This has been shown to aid relaxation and
learning ability. Students may be familiar with the effect via "super-learning"
programs. This is also the tempo used in much classical and reggae music.
The heartbeat slowly changes tempo over a half-hour period, "entraining" the listener's heartbeat.
As the listener's heart also slows down, they relax more, and their mind becomes
more receptive and "suggestible" to positive affirmations.
Similar to how a
listeners own heart will slow down as it hears another heartbeat slow down,
brainwaves do the same thing. This is called "brainwave
Why is that important?
Normal waking state of mind brainwaves associated with being active, less
aware, excited, anxious, fearful and "uptight" are quite rapid, upwards from 14 cycles
per second. The frequency of AC electric wiring in a US house, is 60 cycles -
talk about getting bombarded with high anxiety!
The Earth's magnetic field
is in the area of 10 hz (cycles per second). Alpha brainwave frequencies are
also in that range, and are associated with being relaxed, more aware, and
much more intuitive - like being in a very light meditative or hypnotic
state. (Have you ever noticed how it "feels" better, more
"calm and quiet" when there is a power outage?).
slow down even more, they enter the Alpha-Theta frequencies (associated with
deeper meditation, creative thoughts and activity, visualizations/visions),
then down to Theta (deeply relaxed meditation master levels, deep
contemplation, also out of body experiences).
Excellent human hearing can only hear low bass sounds down to about 20
cycles per second. (A bass drum is about 60, just to give you an idea.) But
brainwaves associated with deep relaxation, awareness, and meditation, are
Thus the brain needs to be accessed in other ways to stimulate the slower
frequencies. One way is flashing lights, another is by using a
"clicking" or "tapping" sound.
Thus our CDs use brainwave entrainment
sounds that start
at the normal "awake and active" brainwave frequencies, and gradually
slow over a half-hour, first through Alpha, then slower through the Alpha-Theta frequencies, then
But that's not the only technique we developed.
Since the beneficial
slow Alpha brainwave frequency is so desirable, and can't be heard, we
induce it with another highly unique method. We actually stimulate the brain
to "feel" and move into these frequencies by creating an audio
"interference pattern". (What???)
Our EMDR-assist sounds CDs actually create a sub-audible "beat" in the
Alpha brainwave range that is "felt" inside the head rather than
heard, thus stimulating Alpha brainwave production.
This is accomplished by
using stereo headphones and a stereo CD player. One frequency is fed
to one hemisphere of the brain through one ear, and another frequency is played in
the other. That creates a "difference" of, and sub-audible beat frequency of, 10 hz.
The conscious mind often "blocks out" things it doesn't want to hear, or
deal with, such as traumatic issues or sensitive topics. Instead of using
subliminal techniques to get past the conscious mind "blocking" the sounds
or affirmations/suggestions, a unique 3-D recording technology is used to
help by-pass the blocking.
Rising and descending frequencies are used to help deepen the state, then
stimulate the return to a normal awake and refreshed state of mind near the
end of each recording.
For hypnosis, following techniques are used:
Progressive relaxation - relaxing parts of the body from head to toe.
Guided visualization - keeps thoughts focused and moving for relaxation and deepening of the hypnotic state.
Classic hypnosis - time-proven self-hypnosis techniques are employed for accessing the subconscious mind.
Positive affirmations - after entering a deep state in which the subconscious mind can be accessed, affirmations are used to help reprogram it
to make the desired changes (all different according to the topic chosen).
Hypnotic "trigger words" are given to the user, so they can re-enter the deep relaxed state at
any time, just by repeating the words in their mind.
"Relax, Relax, Relax" is
used for anytime someone wants to quickly return to the state.
"Peaceful now" is used
anytime there is a need to experience calm and feel inner peace.
trigger word sets are only effective when used by the user, or a trusted
friend or loved one (a wonderful aid if you are injured or ill, and incapable of saying them
