"Seek truth in meditation, not in moldy books. Look in the sky to find the moon, not in the pond. " - Persian proverb

Since the beginning of time human kind has used meditation techniques to search for answers from both within and without.

Until recent years, entering extraordinary states of heightened receptivity and peak performance has been attained predominantly by only a disciplined few, practicing ancient techniques such as meditation, chanting, yoga, and newly revamped versions of the mystical traditions - for example, progressive relaxation, auto-suggestion, hypnosis, and biofeedback. These techniques work. But they take long periods of practice, discipline, and sometimes a leap of faith. It is all too easy to become impatient and give up long before producing results.

In shamanic traditions, drums have long been used to transport the shaman out of his or her body into other realms of reality through the use of constant rhythmic vibrations. Researcher Melinda Maxfield, studying the Shamanic State of Consciousness, found that the steady rhythmic beat of the drum struck 4.5 times per second was the key to transporting a shaman into the deepest part of his shamanic state of consciousness.

With the invention of the EEG (electroencephalograph) Biofeedback researchers discovered that theta brain waves oscillate at 4.5 beats, or cycles, per second. In direct correlation, we see similar effects brought on by the constant and rhythmic drone of Tibetan Buddhist chants that transport the monks and even other listeners into realms of blissful meditation.

The gentle pulsating rhythms of Brain Sync audio programs (http://www.brainsync.com ) act in a similar fashion, yet because the frequencies are precise and consistent they can be targeted to induce highly specific and desired brain states. Just as you can tune a radio to get a particular station, with Brain Sync technology you can re-tune your consciousness - effectively dialing your mind into a wide variety of brain states.

Meditation can be used not only for increased spiritual awareness, but to help focus and center your energies to reduce stress, increase your memory, assist in weight loss, strength conditioning, overcome fears or even help you attract love. By utilizing brain wave technologies you can maximize the power we all already have inside our minds and achieve the results we desire.

Kelly Howell, founder of Brain Sync is internationally acclaimed for her pioneering work in healing and mind expansion. Her clinically proven, Brain Wave Audio Technology is used in hospitals, biofeedback clinics and by physicians and psychologists throughout the world. For more see http://www.brainsync.com
