1. Stress release
Stress release is more important to health than most people realize. The American Institute of Stress estimates that 75 to 90% of all visits to primary care physicians are for stress-related problems. Long-term stress is the cause of countless physiological effects on the body, including increased blood pressure, weight gain and weakening of the immune system.
Staring into the Ganzfeld light is a deep relaxation method that stills the mind and stops the constant chatter in your head. When this internal dialogue ceases the mind settles. Because the mind and the body are so closely related, when the mind is still, the body can begin to rest too.
3. Deep meditation
Rest is nature’s way of healing our body. As deep rest is an essential aspect of recovery and rejuvenation, meditation plays an important role in enlivening your inner healer. Meditation has more benefits than most people realize. It lowers blood pressure, strengthens the immune system, reduces stress toxins in your body and brings peace, relaxation and happiness into everyday life. Meditation is a doorway into the unknown too.
4. Quiet your mind
Today our world is too loud and fast. Have you ever realized how much our senses have to process most of the time? Meditation teach us the importance of reducing the stimulation. Enjoy some quiet time every day with the Light Mask. The less you see and hear, the more settled your mind can become. One third of your brain is devoted to processing vision: to interpreting colour, deciding the identity of objects and many other tasks. Think of it - the Ganzfeld effect makes a third of your brain free from their usual task.
5. Reprogram your mind
Some scientist estimate that we are conscious of only about 5 percent of our cognitive function. The other 95 percent goes on in our subconscious mind beyond our awareness and exerts a huge influence on our lives - begin with making our lives possible. Why it is so hard to change? The beliefs and memories stored in our subconscious prevent us from make lasting changes based on our conscious decisions. The only way you can truly reprogram the subconscious mind is when you are in an alpha-theta brainwave state. The Ganzfeld effect helps you to reach a relaxed, meditative state quickly, when your subconscious will be receptive to the parallel used subliminal messages or guided meditations. This way the benefits of them will be much higher.
The most elemental aspect of creativity - the spontaneous "light bulb" kind where an awesome idea just comes to a person - is that it most frequently occurs while people are in what's known as, a theta brain state. Theta is the brain wave state we are in when we are most relaxed, but not asleep. The calming activities, meditation puts people in this slower brain state that is more conducive for creativity than a mental state like normal beta or alpha brain states. What's so interesting is the way creativity in this brain state just "comes to us" as people so often describe it.
With Ganzfeld and theta state of mind you tap into the creative and intuitive resources of your mind. When you can reach this state of mind, then problem solving and tapping into your intuition becomes much easier. Goal achievement also becomes easier and more efficient process. When you ask questions or visualise a goal after reaching the theta state, do not be impatient. Intuitions will come through visual or “direct knowing” channels – but not necessarily right away. They will come more quickly with practice. However, intuitions may come the next day. The key is to let go and allow these things to come up. Do not try to interpret what comes up. Just take note of everything that goes through your mind. Write them down if you have to. Let your unconscious mind process the information. Then, suddenly, you may have an “Eureka!” moment.
8. New Goals
A habit is a recurrent, often unconscious pattern of behaviour that is acquired through frequent repetition. The use of Ganzfeld with a special audio (subliminal, self hypnosis, guided meditation) is the ultimate tool to change unwanted habits and to create empowering habits.
9. Super Learning
The super learning state occurs when alpha and theta waves dominate. The result is a unique state where the brain can accept a much larger volume of information than it is normally possible. This occurs because the normal conscious filter of the mind is by-passed, instead the knowledge is absorbed directly and in an unfiltered state. Up until the age of six children are predominantly in theta. This frequency allows the brain to absorb and retain massive amounts of information that gets stored in long-term memory. When you need to study and assimilate new information, slip on your Light Mask and headphones, relax and listen to your subject of choice. Theta brain waves are associated with long-term-potentiation. Memory receptors and neural pathways are gently stimulated in theta, and your mind is balanced and relaxed. Groundbreaking research has revealed that theta brain wave activity triggers the formation of new, more complex connections between neurones. This effect, known as "Long-Term Potentiation," is key to forming memories and retrieving information from the subconscious. You'll find that the clarity and speed with which you can concentrate, study, integrate and store information is profoundly improved.
10. Psychic abilities
Various psychic abilities are also linked with theta wave production, including telepathy, remote viewing, clairvoyance and others. So if you want to start to tap into the true potential of your mind, learning to enter the theta state is the best place to start. In the 1970s the term “ganzfeld” became associated with extra-sensory perception. Some experiments purported to show that subjects wearing ganzfeld googles had clairvoyant powers. The CIA, alarmed by reports that the Soviet Union was studying psychic espionage and warfare, spent $20 million on the “Stargate Project,” encompassing studies of ganzfeld telepathy at the Stanford Research Institute.
