Nearly Lost Dynamic Life Changing Information
When the student is ready the teacher will appear…
You may be familiar with the work of Dr. Masuro Emoto. He looked at water crystals that had intentional statements spoken to them to see how they formed under a microscope. This work revealed how our vibration and intention gets a response from the world around us, how our intentions impact other people, creatures, and our environment. Emoto’s research also showed how directing spoken word phrases, some positive and some negative towards rice changes its development. While the rice with negative words spoken toward it became ugly and overgrown with dark furry mold, the rice that had loving and kind words spoken to it remained fresh and pristine much longer than ordinary rice kept at the same temperature. (See Emoto’s research in the video, Hidden Messages in Water).
While Emoto’s research was about human’s intentions towards water and rice, there are stimuli upon us that also create similar reactions of negative, positive, or dynamic transformational responses. This can be considered because we are like water since we are on average about 60% water.
How Human Neurons Respond Like Water and Have Double Resonance
Our own inner dialogue, what we say out loud, and incoming intentions and messages whether overt or covert reverberates within us since we are made up of so much water. Another area of our resonance occurs through our neurological functioning that responds to frequencies, and rhythms as in music and sound patterns.
Neurological Resonance Through Entrainment
Entrainment is the process of making something have the same pattern or rhythm as something else. Brainwave entrainment is any practice that aims to cause brainwave frequencies to synchronize with the beats or rhythms of music with natural body function or processes and causes a response in our neural anatomy. The influence of the stimulus can lift or shift our consciousness. In using particular sounds and their patterns, like saying positive statements to water or rice, entrainment occurs within which can be transformational. And speaking or hearing negative statements do not get the positive responses but instead can cause stagnation and sometimes deterioration.
Consider if a one-time exposure to a resonance pattern brings benefits, what about engaging in intentional listening that creates entrainment to transformation? Then, with repeated listening to the positive entraining stimulus, we deepen and expand. This deepening offers expansiveness in stimulating regions of our creative, insightful, intuitive, and problem-solving abilities because these areas are accessed during listening to particular rhythms. Many cultures with less exposure to westernization still use these repetitive sound practices for aligning groups of listeners in their sacred ceremonies and healing with individuals.
Knowledge Alone Will Not Suffice
About fifty years ago human beings were thought to no longer be able to learn beyond the time our brain completed its growth which was around the age of 18-20. Newer research reveals our brain continues to create new neurons and growth in response to learning (Cherry). How? It is through accessing these states of creativity, insight, intuition and problem-solving. Why?
Why are Key States of Creativity, Insight, Intuition, and Problem-solving Highly Valued?
Because it is now recognized these areas are of extreme value to a world culture that has to have innovation and thinking out-of-the-box solutions to problems that cannot arise from the existing components that created them (as Einstein said, We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.). There are now a few universities (Taleyarkhan, Lucietto, and Hobson) that are teaching creativity, problem-solving, insight and intuition because they understand these abilities are precious, priceless, and necessary in business, cybersecurity, innovation, and the medical industry (Gilhooly, (2016)).
Knowledge alone will not suffice.
Going beyond the status quo or having a vast amount of knowledge alone is not enough for our survival as humans and all creatures and Earth, but to heal the myriad of issues we are faced with as well as going beyond this to thriving, enjoyment, and connection.
But these states of creativity, problem-solving, insight, and intuition are more than business solving tools to accelerate a growth economy (and to move beyond the growth economy model). As discussed above, human beings are malleable, we can create new neurons and learn new things and ways of being. The characteristics of creativity, problem-solving, insight and intuition are not only states of consciousness but also have a feeling connected with them. As we develop and use these states we have the ability to influence our health, wellness, enthusiasm, resilience, release stagnation, complacency, traumas, and negativity, while building and expanding into positive and dynamically expansive ways.
What are High-gamma, Epsilon and Lambda?
Considering we are entrainable we can expose ourselves repeatedly to higher level entrainment where we lift ourselves out of old neuron firing patterns into expansive new connections that also heal trauma and develop resilience. Considering the scope of our entrainability we have a long way to go. Meaning we do not even know what we are capable of in terms of our expansive problem- solving, creativity, intuition, and insight cultivation and abilities. This correlates with the ‘newly’ discovered brain waves of high-gamma, epsilon and lambda that are beyond the main five of beta, alpha, theta, delta, and gamma. High-gamma, epsilon and lambda are related to extraordinary states of consciousness in the highest states of meditation, deepest levels of insight, personal original creative problem-solving and high degrees of self-awareness!
How Do We Get to these Higher Levels? What Accelerates Us Into Accessing these Amazing Highest States?
Individually and collectively, using entrainment helps to release and heal the generational traumas and oppressions we are sorting through. Entraining through particular sound patterns immediately begins subtle changes in our responses that contribute to healing from being a walking wounded person. Holding the intention towards ourselves, like the positive statements towards rice and water occurs in the entrainment process because it begins to reprogram our brains. At first we may not feel the passion or purpose with entrainment because it is subtle, however, continuing, develops and deepens the neurological responses and pathways.
What are We Entraining Ourselves From and Then To?
Here are the main issues of our day. There are levels of stress, anxiety, depression, and isolation as well as other mental health issues. Most, if not all physical issues are also exacerbated by negative stress that can create secondary issues or cause the physical diagnosis to not improve or worsen. Other major issues are getting good sleep, pain, and dealing with normal life challenges we all face that cause stress.
The grassroots movements are solutions to not only a system in crisis but a culture in crisis. Shining the light on other cultures’ treatment of individuals who have an experience outside of the culture norm has resulted in a movement. Phil Borges produced the film Crazywise showing how people with these experiences are trained and valued by their respective culture because they are accessing other levels of consciousness. The Spiritual Awakening movement also offers other healthy responses than the western approach of pahtologicalizing or medicating. Additional organizations making significant contributions to changes are the Association for Near Death studies and even the work of Dr. Steven Greer. What all these groups have in common is the recognition that when we access different brain waves states we are shifting our perspective of reality that is essentially grander than the limitations of the western view. Recognizing people who are accessing these states are invaluable for wise solutions beyond the brainwaves we all stay in most of the time, (as referenced above by Einstein).
While the Crazywise movement moves on there are more and more psychedelic assistance, and microdosings offerings whether in the country or out, legal, or illegal, that are making significant inroads into expanding healing. Using entrainment to solve problems as another valuable ancient tradition leans into the benefits as they support our transition into the new paradigm.
There are two different things happening at this time that are lifting us as individuals and collectively moving us.
Entrainment is a powerful and potent method of listening to specific tones that carry us into a deep place of connecting within of peace, releasing stress, negative thoughts, and cyclic thoughts, and connects us to our inner resilience where positive hormones are released.
Accessing our mystical selves of possibilities and experience of inner creative flow energy is another component that guides our experiences in peacefulness as the cosmic energy enhances and evolves receptivity, healing, understanding, and feeling good, simply by listening to specific sound and music patterns with entrancing rhythms.
But this is Not Only What is Happening!
As we, as individuals, connect into this network of dynamic vibration there is a resonance that is building across the planet of those who are also drawn to these significant changes that are transforming our collective as a culture.
There is an interconnection within and resources building as an emergence of consciousness healing traumas passed through time, rebuilding our responses and our nervous system, tapping into a greater field of energy and possibilities that offers solutions that have not been discovered before.
Enhancing these creative processes are guided by our engagement in practices that are not one-time interventions but are tools that continue to deepen and build our body, mind, emotions, and spirit, heightening our awareness and insight, creativity, sensitivity, and understanding, while deepening our inner relationship with our spirituality, and connection with our selves, with others and Earth.
Who is Musical Listening and Entrainment for?
If people with PTSD, depression, anxiety, pain, inability to get good sleep, and life’s inevitable challenges (3Melete Meditation Programs) get benefits from using musical listening entrainment is it even possible there are other people who benefit? Yes. Beyond the connection with the same brain wave patterns, these same patterns also support and expand into the inner spiritual awakening journey. The same practices are reliable and offer guidance with continuous use because of their expansive nature into deeper brain wave patterns.
And when people are looking for deeper insight with psychedelics there is always a need to continue the benefits, to sustain their experience and not lose what was gleaned and gathered. Therefore, regular entrainment practices aid exploration and longevity of healing with psychedelics.
Although humans are innately attracted to peak experiences, it is through daily expansive, integrative practices that create the foundation that supports the gentle transition or the appearance of a leap forward.
Having reliable methods and tools that carry the listener into the numinous and mystical regularly changes us because we are of a mystical nature, and we are re-connecting to the mystical nature of the world that has been nearly completely lost through industrialization, separation from nature, and forgetting who we are.
As referenced above with ecstatic states and developing creativity, insight, intuition and problem solving, the same neuro responses create patterns of responses that take the listener into deeper states. When we refine the intentions as well as build and deepen our responses to these states we go deeper, thus creating receptivity to deeper, wider, satisfying, and more expansive discovery and development.
Specific musical listening, as an ancient practice, is a guidance method that transcends limitations that will develop more as we collectively dive into its expansive nature to discover even more. What if the statement, “When the student is ready the teacher will appear…” means when we access these advanced brain wave states through entrainment it is us who is emerging as the teacher?
