Brainwave Entrainment - The First Time

The following post was written by a friend who had trouble learning to meditate. He eventually tried brainwave entrainment, specifically isochrnoic tones, to help him learn to meditate. Today he is able to meditate without the tones. I told him to describe his experience in an unbiased manner as possible. Read what he has to say below. I think you will find it very interesting.

At first I had always had trouble meditating. I never could seem to get my mind to focus. I never really seemed to get into a deep meditative state. I always knew I was missing out. I knew meditation was the key to getting in touch with your infinite self and really manifesting anything you want in life. It was frustrating.

I searched on the Internet for meditation Cd's which might help the process. I was fortunate enough to come across a site on brainwave entrainment. A process in which you listen to an audio recording which syncs your brain to a certain frequency, especially frequencies of a meditative state. It sounded interesting, so I decided to give it a try. Why not, what did I have to lose?

So I purchased an isochronic tone which was suppose to sync your brain into a meditative state conducive for manifesting. What I am not going to tell you are the events of the first week I experimented with the isochronic manifesting tone.

I love to play poker. A group of friends and I get together and play poker about once a week. The day I received the isochronic tone I had a poker game scheduled that night. I almost felt silly but I figured what the heck here was the perfect opportunity to try out the isochronic tone.

I sat down in a quiet and room and played the tone for the first time. I was a little surprised. It was just a single tone repeated over and over again. The frequency began to slow and I could actually feel my self syncing with the tone. It was a little scary at first so I stopped playing it.

After a few minutes I restarted the tone and tried again. I was shocked. You really could feel your state of mind changing. Eventually it became very relaxing. Now was the time to try to and see if this manifesting thing really worked. I was going to play poker so I decided to concentrate on getting dealt great cards. I pictured my self being dealt hand after hand of great cards.

The isochronic tone ran for about 15 minutes. When it finished I had to say I felt very relaxed and very refreshed. Now came the fun part. It was time to go play some cards and see if this stuff really worked. Honestly I was hoping but I didn't expect much.

Here is what happened. During the course of the night I was dealt pocket aces twice and pocket kings four times. If you know anything about poker those are the two best hands you can be dealt and to be dealt six of those hands in the course of a few hours, the odds are astronomical.

But here is the funny part. I lost money that night. Even being dealt all those great cards I still lost money. But get this. The next day I get an email from the company I purchased the tone from. The email instructs to be sure you concentrate on the end result not the means of getting there.

There it was right in front of my eyes on the email. I should have concentrated on winning hands and winning money. Not just being dealt great cards. Because as any poker player knows, it's not the cards you're dealt that determine the winner but how you play them.

So was all that just a huge coincidence. If so it was a pretty incredible one. But whatever it was it definitely warranted more experimenting with brainwave entrainment, especially the isochronic tone.

At that point in my life I had been trying for months to start an Internet marketing business. Making money selling products on line. But as of that time I had not sold a thing. So what a perfect way to test the tone again.

If you are familiar with online marketing then you are probably familiar with Clickbank. They have products you can sell for a commission. They handle all the financial stuff and pay you. You can go online and check your Clickbank balance and see how much you are owed. Every day I checked my balance and everyday I saw a big zero. I had never made a sale.

What a perfect way to test manifesting using an isochronic tone. So again I played the tone, entered the relaxing meditative state. This time as instructed in the email, I concentrated on the end result. I pictured myself going on the Internet and seeing a positive balance on my Clickbank account. I pictured numbers ranging from $10 to $10,000.

When I finished meditating I quickly ran to the computer and logged onto my click bank account and checked the balance. Again nothing but a big zero. Oh well it was worth a try. It was late that night. The meditation had relaxed me so I decided to go to bed.

The next morning when I awoke I decided to check my Clickbank balance again. I couldn't believe what I saw. There right in front of my eyes I was seeing a balance of $44.03. I had made my first Internet sale.

Did that sale come because I had manifested it when using the isochronic tone? I was still skeptical. But you had to admit every time I used the tone, things were happening. Even though sometimes not exactly how I wanted them to.

This definitely warranted continuing with the tones. Over the next three days I continued meditating on my Clickbank balance and every day my Clickbank balance grew. The sales kept coming.

Things were really starting to go way past just being a coincidence. So I decided to try it in another area of my life. This is where things got really strange.

I had always had allergies. At this point in my life they were really bad. I was sneezing and coughing constantly every day. So I decided to meditate with the tones one night before I went to bed and concentrate on the end result of being allergy free.

Here comes the strange part. That night after I went to bed I woke up at about two in the morning. My body was tingling and I began to feel very cold. It was a strange feeling. It was scary. My breathing became heavy and my heart started racing. I felt as if I was having a panic attack. But I had no reason to be afraid of anything. Then came the sickening nausea feeling. It kept growing and growing and my breathing and heart kept racing faster and faster. Here it gets kind of gross. But I spent the rest of the night with my head over a toilet seat about twelve times.

I spent the entire next day in bed. But guess what? I didn't cough or sneeze once. My body had purged my system of all the mucus (told you it gets gross) and allergens that were causing it so much discomfort. Of course I still have a little allergy attack now and then. But today is nothing like it was back then. I mean I was literally coughing and sneezing every waking hour. But the night after using the isochronic tone I saw an end to my chronic allergies.

Here is an interesting side note. The two days I was sick I didn't use the tones. I didn't concentrate on my Clickbank sales. And those two days I didn't get a sale.

There you have it. My friends first week experience using brainwave entrainment. I hope this has at least tickled your interest enough to want to experiment yourself. Even though my friend does mention getting sick, trust me when I say it is a very safe practice. Only good can come from it. As you saw in his end result.

I can assure you. Once you try it for yourself you will be amazed

Brainwave Entrainment - The Best Way to Manifest Anything Into Your Life

It really is quite simple. Entrainment is the syncing of two vibrating systems. Here we are referring to your brain and an audio recording that simulates the waves your brain produces.

Once your brain enters an alpha-theta stage, all the unwanted, crazy noise of your conscious mind begins to fade. The 50,000 thoughts you have a day can become one. The one thought being what you want to manifest in your life. You have calmed a raging ocean and turned it into a tranquil pond. Can you not see how effective the Law of Attraction can be for you now?

Entrainment is most often accomplished by one of two methods - binaural beats or isochronic tones.

Binaural beats require the listener to wear headphones. A different tone is heard in each ear. The brain interprets the difference as a pulse or beat. For example one ear may hear a 200 hertz frequency and the other ear a 210 hertz frequency. The brain interprets this as the difference and hears just a 10 hertz frequency.

Isochronic tones turn a tone on and off to simulate the desired frequency. Isochronic tones are actually becoming more popular. Evidence is showing them to be more effective. Plus you don't have to use headphones. But headphones are often recommended to eliminate background noise.

If you have had trouble in the past entering a meditative state then binaural beats or isochronic tones just may be the magic you have been looking for.

They are also so much better than subliminal messages. When listening to a subliminal recording you are limited to impressing upon your subconscious mind only what is on the recording. Using brainwave entrainment you can enter an altered state of consciousness and you decide what to "tell" your subconscious. One recording can be used for multiple purposes.

If you have never tried brainwave entrainment, especially isochronic tone, do so today. Don't delay. You only have everything to lose and everything to gain.

I Can Program A Computer and Didn't Know It

Many times we just take for granted that something is true. We believe it to be true even without evidence to back it up. We just have something inside us that tells us it is true. Many times it isn't true. Many times we are just dead wrong.

Our paradigms make us believe many things that are not true. Unfortunatley many go through their lives without learning to shift untrue paradigms. They live in a suffocating world of unnecessary false beliefs.

Below is the experince of a friend who had a major paradigm shift. He just held a belief in his mind that something just had to be a certain way. He was convinced it was that way. He held the false belief for years, even decades. Boy was he wrong. He has agreed to write down his experience for this blog.

It was 1984. I was 12 years old. It was Christmas. My grandparents had just given me my first computer, a Commodore 64.

I was in awe. To me a computer was the most magical thing in the world. There wasn't anything a computer couldn't do. To learn how to use a computer was to unlock the mysteries of the universe.

I loved the computer and the two games they bought me to go with the computer - Radar Rat Race and Monkey Math. Of course that was what they thought the computer was for, playing games. Hopefully some games like Monkey Math would be educational. I loved the games, but what caught my attention was a little book that came with the computer. A book entitled, BASIC Programming on the Commodore 64.

There it was! I grabbed the book. I now held in my hands the book which was going to allow me to unlock the mysteries of the universe. This book was going to show me how to make the computer do whatever I wanted it to do. Since there wasn't anything a computer couldn't do, once I learned the secrets in the book I would be able to make the computer give me anything I wanted.

I was determined to learn to program the Commodore 64. So I started reading the book. I didn't have a clue what it was telling me. I didn't know what a variable was. I didn't know what a string was. I didn't know what a function was. I didn't know what a statement was.

I could tell the book was trying to tell me but I couldn't quite get it. It was frustrating. But I didn't give up. I kept reading the same pages over and over again. Perphaps this time it would make sense.

Guess what?

One day it did make sense. I don't really understand it. Something just clicked on in my mind. I even remember what it was. The first thing I finally understood was a variable. I had read the section on variables over and over again in the past. The words might have well have been a jumbled mess of letters for all I was concerned. But then one day I completely understood the section on variables. This made the other sections clearer. Eventually everything began to build and I eventually had the foundation for programming BASIC programs on the Commodore 64.

I soon learned that maybe I hadn't actually found the secret of the entire universe. But I could do some pretty cool stuff with the Commodore 64. I made these awesome, or what I thought was awesome, computer games. Which I would send off to try and get some major software publisher to buy. Of course I always got the rejection letter. Give me a break I was only 12 or 13 years old.

Unfortuantely as the years went by and I entered High School my awe for the computer began to fade. Besides who wants to be the high school computer nerd anyway. My interests turned to other things like girls. Spending time with girls was a lot funner than sitting in the corner of some room typing in lines of code on a computer screen. My interest in computers almost came to a complete standstill. Plus it was the late eighties, no one really used home computers in their everyday lives yet.

But then came the nineties, and the internet. Computers started to play a major role in our lives. I was very adept at learning to use these new and more powerful computers. Setting up new computers, installing and working with all the new incredible software and hardware pretty much came naturally . But I never got back to my first love of programming the computer, making that computer do what I wanted it to do.

I just figured that by now with all the advances in computers, computer languages had to have become so difficult and time consuming to learn that the BASIC language I knew had to be obsolete. With everything computers could do I didn't even know if I would even be capable of learning the new languages.

Unfortuantely I just took that belief for granted. I didn't even bother to take a look at any of the current languages the programmers were using to run computers. That was a big mistake.

Flashforward to 2009.

I had just read a book on shifting your paradigms. Changing many of the false beliefs that you think are true but aren't.

Something in me clicked again. Something in me made me sit down at the computer and look up C++ on the internet. C++ is the language used to create many of the programs you use on the computer today.

I found a web page and I saw this...

int main
int x;
int y;

using namespace std;
cout << "Enter a number: ";
cin >> x;

cout << "Enter another number: ";
cin >> y;

cout << "The sum is: " << x + y << endl;

I was in shock!

I understood most of what I was seeing. Yes this is a very basic program which just has its operator enter two numbers then tells them the sum of the two numbers. What shocked me the most was the coding was still very similar to the BASIC lanugage I had learned years ago. Take a look at the same program in BASIC. You do not need to be a programmer to see similarities.

PRINT "Enter a number ";
PRINT "Enter another number";
PRINT "The sum is: "; x+y

I started looking at other programs written in C++. Again I had never looked at a program since I was in my teens. I just couldn't believe what I was seeing. Many of the same commands were still there. There were of course variations, but the basic concepts, the same logic needed, was still there.

This was a paradigm shattering, earth shaking moment for me. I still knew how and was capable of programming a computer. Twenty plus years had passed and I thought I had fallen so behind on an ability as to have to spend years and years of training to recover.


After seeing the similarities of the two languages, I found a FREE site on the internet which had well over 100 lessons teaching you how to program in C++.

I actually went through the first 30 lessons in just ONE day. It was all review. I already knew everything I was reading. I can't count how many times I just paused to contemplate what was happening.

In less than one month I was back up to speed with C++ programming and I am happy to say I am once again making my own programs with the same enthusiasm of my old 13 year old self. It feels good.

All those years I had just assumed and was convinced of something that was untrue. I believed a lie. A lie that I was telling to myself.

If that is not a paradigm shift then I don't know what is.
