An Exploration into the Secret Corridors of your Conscioussness with Hemi-Sync

For 20 years, I have practiced a type of meditation called Hemispherical Synchronization or Hemi-Sync.  The technology was developed by a man named Robert Monroe in the late fifties and has been developed and refined over the last 70 years. 

It all started around 1958, when Robert began having “Out of Body” (OBE) experiences. OBE or Out-of-Body experiences “is a phenomenon in which a person perceives the world from a location outside their physical body.

An OBE is a form of autoscopy (literally “seeing self”), although this term is more commonly used to refer to the pathological condition of seeing a second self, or “doppelgänger”. In an effort to explain these experiences, and after consulting with psychologists who weren’t able to provide sufficient answers, Monroe put together a group of, what he called, Voyagers who experienced similar experiences.  Over the next 50 years, Robert Monroe, along with a group of Voyageurs, engineers and training specialists, would explore the power of meditation to access varied levels of consciousness or “Focus Levels”, of which there are 48.

Here is what Hemi-Sync is today:

Hemi-Sync®, short for hemispheric synchronization, is an audio-guidance, binaural beat technology developed by consciousness pioneer, Robert Monroe. Through extensive brainwave research, Monroe and his team observed that specific sound patterns could safely and gently guide the brain into various states ranging from deep relaxation or sleep to expanded mindfulness or “extraordinary” states.

The audio-guidance process works quite simply by sending different sounds (tones) to each ear by stereo headphones. The two hemispheres of the brain then act in unison to “hear” a third signal – the difference between the two tones. This is not an actual sound but an electrical signal that can only be perceived by both brain hemispheres working together. The result is a focused, whole-brained state known as hemispheric synchronization, or “Hemi-Sync®” an optimal condition for improving human performance.

And, here is what can be achieved through Hemi-Sync®:

Specific combinations of Hemi-Sync® signals, for example, can help you to achieve laser-like focus and concentration. Different Hemi-Sync® signals are used to facilitate deep relaxation, expanded awareness or other desired states. Depending on your intended goals, Hemi-Sync® can be combined with music, verbal guidance or subtle sound effects to strengthen its effectiveness. You will remain in total control as these recordings do not contain subliminal messages. Hemispheric synchronization does occur naturally in daily life but typically only for random, brief periods. Hemi-Sync® can assist you in achieving and sustaining this highly productive, coherent, brain-wave state.

Here is Hemi-sync in action. 

At around 5 years, my daughter began having the toughest time sleeping.  I believe it started when her brother told her the story of Anne Frank.  By that time, I had been using the hemi-sync recordings for a few years knew they had bedtime stories for children with the frequencies embedded in the recordings.  I installed speakers on either side of her headboard and played the hemi-sync bedtime story Joy Jumper for her when I put her down to bed.  I came back about 3 minutes later and she was sound asleep.  In light of the success, we continued to use the hemi-sync bedtime stories (I believe there are 3) for the next 7-8 years because she just became conditioned to use the recordings before bed.
