More Recommendations for Spiritual Growth

Robert Monroe

Robert Monroe, who founded The Monroe Institute, is internationally known for his work with audio sound patterns that can have dramatic effects on states of consciousness. Monroe observed, during his early research, that certain sounds created a Frequency Following Response in the electrical activity within the brain.

Those observations led to some remarkable findings dealing with the very nature of human consciousness. Researchers learned specific sounds could be blended and sequenced to gently lead the brain to various states ranging from deep relaxation or sleep to expanded states of awareness and other “extraordinary” states. This compelling research became the foundation of a noninvasive and easy-to-use audio-guidance technology known as Hemi-Sync®.

With Hemi-Sync

The audio-guidance process works through the generation of complex, multilayered audio signals, which act together to create a resonance that is reflected in unique brain wave forms characteristic of specific states of consciousness. The result is a focused, whole-brain state known as hemispheric synchronization, or Hemi-Sync, where the left and right hemispheres are working with each other in a state of coherence. Different Hemi-Sync signals are used to facilitate deep relaxation, focused attention or other desired states to include profound states of expanded awareness.

The practice of meditation can be highly beneficial, but few have the discipline required to achieve advanced meditative states—like the profound states of expanded awareness alluded to above—on their own. The goal of such states arises from the knowledge that beyond thought, there is being. As a meditative tool, Hemi-Sync can slow excess mental activity. This can assist individuals in obtaining a state of consciousness, with few or no thoughts, where one can become conscious of their innermost being, their true self. As such, Hemi-Sync can be an exceptional asset to one’s spiritual growth.
