A new connection to meditation & brain stimulation yields impactful subconscious reprogramming and a more vibrant, intuitive self
Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
~ Howard Thurman
If I were to ask you how alive you feel on a daily basis, what would you answer?
Neuroscientists have discovered that we operate 95 to 99 percent of our lives from subconscious programs. Considering this we can say that we are spending our lives in a type of hypnotic state, which is the exact opposite of being alive. To become alive means to become aware; to become aware of our subconscious patterns in the form of thoughts, emotions and actions. And what’s most important? To become aware of what we really want in life and what we came here to do…
There are 7.4 billion people living on this beautiful planet and everyone wants the same thing- happiness. What does happiness mean to you, anyway? And when was the last time you asked yourself what makes you happy? I mean, truly happy.
It is said that the number one reason why we don’t live the life we desire is that we don’t know what we want or what makes us happy.
And there’s a profound reason behind that. From cradle to grave we are surrounded by a society that is programming us to shift our attention and awareness from our inner cosmos to the external world. From an early age we are pushed to suspend our thoughts and feelings and conform to teachers, preachers, parents and friends…
Sometimes when you are alone, instead of scrolling social media on your smart device, just take time to observe children. Witness how authentic, pure and connected they are. Then look at adults and see how fragile, lost and unconnected the majority of them appear to be. And as a result of the inevitable programming, most of us begin to identify with our environment and material things. Which means that we have put the responsibility for our own happiness out of our control while subconsciously reacting to external factors. Simultaneously, our cunning ego is tricking us into believing that we are in control.
All that we see and experience in the physical realm is a reflection of our collective mind. If we want our external world to change, we need to start by going within, because all the answers are found in the stillness of the mind. Yes, even the answer to happiness. You’ve probably heard the old saying that happiness is an inside job — those who know it, know it.
I can already hear you asking: “Yes, of course, but how? How can we go deeper within the layers of our mind to find the meaningful answers for ourselves? How can we become more aware and take back control of our lives?”
The answer is simple and I think that you already know it: meditation.
The daily practice of meditation is the most efficient and powerful item in our mental and spiritual toolbox to heighten our level of awareness and raise consciousness.
Modern science has proven the positive effect of meditation on our wellbeing in countless studies all over the world. It has proven what the ancients knew intuitively centuries ago: That focused meditation is the key to unlocking the mysteries of the mind.
It therefore follows that, in order to really awaken and become more aware of our unconscious programming, it would be wise to develop a conscious daily habit of meditation. But based on my experience it happens to be a pretty difficult habit to develop.
In retrospect, my journey to meditation began many years ago when I visited my parents for the weekend. Out of curiosity, I happened to scroll through my parents library and a thin book about meditation grabbed my attention (as they say, when the student is ready, the teacher will appear). As a personal development enthusiast, I had read many different blogs and articles about the benefits of meditation and at that moment, holding this book in my hand, I felt deep down that this was a sign to welcome this ‘weird’ concept called meditation into my life.
During my initial attempts I slowly started to become aware of how much rubbish and nonsense is in my head and that I’m actually not in control of my mind. It wasn’t easy at the beginning, my mind was constantly wandering off and I was very inconsistent. To be honest, I was struggling and was beginning to think that meditation wasn’t for me! As a naturally lazy person, I knew that there must be some sort of shortcut to make my journey of self-discovery easier and more pleasurable. This ongoing search led me to different apps, guided meditations and binaural beats. I tried out every possible tool that I found online, but no matter how hard I tried, I lacked the daily consistency of the practice, because I simply got bored of listening to the same audio every day.
Then fortune smiled upon me. Through a series of mysterious synchronicities, an app called Synctuition showed up as a helpful tool for my ongoing journey of the mind mastery. I was blown away by the concept and audio quality, as well as how utterly easy it made reaching a meditative state, while listening to pleasant musical masterpiece the same time.
It occurred to me by intuition, and music was the driving force behind that intuition. My discovery was the result of musical perception. ~ Albert Einstein
Just as music was one of the preconditions that led Einstein to his discoveries, I became curious and wanted to find the connections between brain, music and intuition. I found out that our brain processes are based on electrical waves that have a frequency. But electrical frequencies of the left and the right side of the brain tend to be out of sync with one another, and therefore there is often less-than-perfect communication between the two. The good news is that these electrical frequencies respond to sound and can be synchronized by what we hear. Some sounds with very specific frequencies are able to achieve this synchronizing effect significantly better than others. For example, the violin that Einstein had a passion for from the age of six and the app I found have the same qualities.
With every listening session, our brainwave patterns of the left and the right side of the brain become synchronized to a specific beat pattern by making neurons in the left and right side of the brain fire together. And neurons that fire together wire together – they wire together across the brain – creating new permanent connections between the left and the right side of the brain.
The formula is very simple: More connectivity between brain hemispheres means more powerful intuition.
Besides helping to deepen my connections to intuition, I can also honestly say that Synctuition has been very practical tool for developing my daily meditation habit, because of its unique structure. The program consists of 60 different sound tracks, but there’s a catch! You can’t simply listen to whichever track grabs your fancy. The system has 12 hour intervals built in between each track, which makes you feel like a kid again, waiting for tomorrow to get the next piece of chocolate from the Christmas calendar. Because humans are addicted to the new, the anticipation and forced wait helped me to meditate almost every day for 80 days until summer arrived — and of course, life happened. However, once the novelty of sunshine wore off (I live in Estonia), I got back on track with another round and am enjoying it more than ever!
Thanks to the 80 days of consistent meditation I can proudly say that I’m not the same person who I was half a year ago. I feel a constant, overwhelming presence and awareness no matter how hectic my day might be, even if the circumstances are testing. I’m incredibly grateful for the countless epiphanic moments that occurred during my daily practice which, combined with unexpected synchronicities, has led me to amazing new experiences. In short, my intuition and baseline happiness have risen and I tackle the game of life with more confidence and a non-judgmental attitude towards everything and everyone, including myself.
During these seemingly dark and materialistic times, the world needs people who have come alive, are connected to their inner selves, and are free to express their true gifts.
I believe that each and every one of us should spend some time – however much time is necessary — to discover and reflect upon our purpose, our deeper calling and meaning in this precious life. It is our job to heed the call of our deeper selves. All the answers are within — but we must take the time to listen to that inner voice. Breathe in, breathe out… Namaste.
