Harmonically layered binaural audio technology is something I recently stumbled upon while surfing the web.On a website I frequent, Finer Minds, I heard about a product called Holosync. The idea is to allow even undisciplined morons like myself to meditate as deeply as a Zen monk without the cumbersome years of dedicated practice. I was immediately intrigued in a big way. In the mid 90's I developed a panic disorder complicated by severe ADHD that savagely threw me off the treadmill of normal life and left me agoraphobic to the point of total disability. Part of my long climb back to the land of the living involved learning to meditate through a series of tapes still advertised to cure anxiety. My clumsy efforts did yield results and I now have a modicum of control over anxiety with the help of modern pharmacology. The meditation definately helped but was certainly not on any advanced level, besides my ears ring and normal meditation is less than fun. The idea of a deeper level through CDs seemed a Godsend. The claims made about this tecnology are huge, from whole bran syncronization, which is how geniuses think, to increased creativity and better sleep. You have to go to the web sites to read them all, it's worth the trip.
So with a healthy dose of skepticism I started investigating available sources for this new technology. Just so you know, I am what some people might call "cheap", I like to think of myself as frugal, either way the up front cost for the Holosync product was more than I wanted to risk. I know, Iknow they have a great money back guarantee but I never return anything. I'll eat a burnt steak instead of telling the waiter I ordered rare. So googling Holosync led me to EOC Institute's web site where Equisync is available, a much cheaper version of the binaural technology. I ordered the first CD, Enlightenment, immediately. I was too cheap to order fast delivery and waited with baited breath for my new life to begin. This was a week ago and I will be reviewing my experience on this blog for the benefit of anyone who might stumble upon it, but mostly for myself.
The Cd must be listened to through a good set of earphones, I use Bose. So far I have mostly listened to it leaned back in my cherry red leather recliner with no distractions and my eyes closed. I try to prepare by relaxing my face, my jaws are where I carry most of my stress. The first time I listened, I listened to the entire tape which has three 20 plus minute segments. The relaxation was wonderful. I was pleased but not yet enlightened. For the next 6 days I listened to at least one segment a day and must say the early results are promising. I have definitely slept better and had much more fascinating dreams, clear and more fluid. I hope to start a dream diary but doubt my resolve. Also, I am less anxiuos for the most part, but just slightly. This may be due to the power of suggestion, I don't know yet. I am not sure about creativity, but this is the third entry in this blog since I started using Equisync and I had not written anything in many, many months, maybe years.
After only a week of using Equisync it is too early to give any real insight, but I am very hopeful and definitely not disappointed. I look forward to each session and will do my best to update my progress regularly. Hopefully the new blogs will be less rambling and more to the point, but either way I hope if you read this you will feel free to comment.
Here's to personal evolution!
