Go Deeper in Your Meditations
By going deeper in your meditations you are harnessing the power of increased focus and concentration. You are strengthening control of your mind and body and from this flows many benefits: deep relaxation, mind reprogramming, clarity in thought, better sleep, emotional balance, body healing and greater day to day energy levels.
By accessing Delta you are moving into the realm of very deep relaxation and body healing and regeneration. Delta can also help you become more attuned to those things around you in your day to day life.
The first track is a Brainwave Metronome sound embedded with beautiful relaxing music. The second track is simply the brainwave metronome for those who like the purity of the sound alone.
On both tracks, over the first 15 minutes, the tone moves gradually from Theta (4Hz) to Delta (2Hz). The last 15 minutes it remains at Delta. This gives you the benefits of the frequency following response (brainwave entrainment) where the brain’s activity “follows the metronome”, moving you gradually deeper in your meditation. A big advantage of this recording is that you don't have to use headphones.
2 Tracks: (60mins)
1. Deeper Meditation from Theta to Delta with music (30mins)
2. Deeper Meditation from Theta to Delta (30mins)
Note from James Wild: Some delightful customers have been asking for a brainwave audio that gradually moves from the Theta dimension to Delta to help them go deeper in their meditations - and so voila!. I have created the two tracks so you can have a choice between the pure sound or the sound with music. I prefer the pure sound but some have said they like metronome with the music. Hope you like it.

How to use the Brainwave recording
Find a quiet place to sit or lie down making yourself comfortable. When listening to the recording the goal is to still the mind, let go of extraneous thoughts and relax into your space. You may like to concentrate on the silence between the sounds, which can help you focus and remain alert. While the best results come from a willingness to focus your attention, if you find yourself drifting off then don’t let it concern you - this can be part of the experience and may lead to insights and unusual perceptions. Acknowledge every experience you have. With practice, you will be able to slip into deeper states of meditation while remaining mindful and perceptively relaxed.
Research information on Brainwave States
Due to the collective electrical activity of neurons, the brain produces a resonant frequency measured in cycles per second or hertz (Hz) called a brainwave state. At any one time the brain produces all frequencies but collectively a dominant one can be measured. The brain is highly dynamic and during the day and night we pass through all states being dependent on our physical and mental activities.
Gamma (40+Hz) associated with a lift in mood, happiness, intelligence and greater feelings of love for oneself and others.
Beta (14+Hz) - everyday working conscious state - as you read these lines you are most likely in the Beta state.
Alpha (7-14Hz) - a calm relaxed state. Occurs while daydreaming and during light meditation but can also occur when one is focused and mentally alert. Has links to dreaming during sleep, simple problem solving and a positive outlook on life.
Theta (4-7Hz) - for deep meditation, relaxation and exploring psychic phenomena. Associated with creative insight, flashes of intuition, advanced problem solving, altered states, better sleep and boosting immune system function.
Delta (1-4Hz) - associated with deep sleep and body healing but also linked to benefits of deep meditative states such as profound visions, bliss and altered states.
Research using techniques known as Biofeedback has shown that an external stimulus (such as the repetitive metronome tone) induces the brain to match the resonant frequency. This enables the subject to access the different levels of brainwave activity. Many people have shown that through practice they can maintain consciousness while accessing the benefits of being in any of these states. These include deep relaxation; more energy and better sleep; enhanced focus and concentration; accelerated learning; feelings of joy, happiness and compassion; body healing; plus phenomena associated with altered states of consciousness such as out of body experiences, feeling of rebirth, vivid dream recall, an explosion in creativity, strange time/space occurrences and many others.
