Solving Brain Chatter
Brain chatter inhibits the mind from achieving total relaxation. Those continuous thoughts keep the mind active and alert. Brain chatter is counter-productive, oftentimes focusing on possible future scenarios, whether realistic or not. So how do you silence all those thoughts when you are trying to relax?

“Continuing thoughts about brainwave entrainment and light and sound machines”
Green color stimulation came next after red, followed by a red / green combination of pulsed light stimulation. After that, it was as if various color LEDs spontaneously generated because lightframes were being offered featuring white, blue, orange, yellow, all kinds of colors and combinations. It was as if the light and sound manufacturers finally found an LED source offering more than the color red. This change from one available color stimulation lightframe to various different color lightframe choices occurred rather quickly – all within just a few years.
There was one glaring problem that light and sound machine users had to deal with for years: If you wanted a different color stimulation you had to purchase that particular color’s lightframe. Mind machine enthusiasts owned boxfulls of lightframes and were annoyed by having to spend so much to use a machine promoting relaxation.
The rationalization was technology possessed the ability to provide several different LED colors capable of generating specific colors within one lightframe so why were the manufacturers sticking with just one or two specific colors in their lightframes? The manufacturers were not keeping up with the times. Why?
Let’s sidetrack a bit and start with just the lightframe, not what color is being generated. Every lightframe manufacturer used a specific polarity – either Common Ground or Common Power. Sure you now have multiple colors contained within one lightframe, but to work on a particular light and sound machine the lightframes had to be a compatible polarity. If you had the wrong polarity the lightframes would not work. The late Chris Williams changed things…

Buying your first light and sound mind machine
The more educated you are about mind machines, the better choice you will make when you purchase. Begin by asking yourself what you want a mind machine for … meditation? business tool? teaching aid? Your answer will tell you what type of mindmachine to look for.
The majority of light and sound systems include a variety of brainwave frequency sessions targeting all four general brainwave states: Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta. Consider which states would best meet your needs. Will you focus mainly on Beta, our normal waking state; Alpha for relaxed concentration; Theta for deep, clear thoughts or Delta for help in falling asleep?
What color light stimulation would you prefer? I recommend the multi-color eyesets because each color can visually stimulate brainwaves differently even though you are partaking in the same brainwave frequency session. And don’t forget the audio frequency aspect… your light and sound machine should include a variety of audio modes including binaural beats.
The light and sound mind machine that best matches those requirements is the DAVID Delight Pro by Mind Alive.
Using Speakers with Your Mindmachine
By Michael Landgraf
In the Spring of 1990 I tried using my mind machine for help in going to sleep. Lots of brain chatter, became quite annoying, so I tried a delta / sleep session. I had no trouble going to sleep, but later I awoke to wires that gave new meaning to the term bed wrinkles. Forget the realization that I still had lightframes and headphones on, the wires were the culprits that woke me. I am a light sleeper and I do appreciate comfort as often as possible, but wearing lightframes and headphones while trying to go to sleep and remain asleep just was not conducive to my comfort zone. And that got me thinking…
Why not put aside the headphones and lightframes? Just connect a pair of computer speakers (like the ones pictured above) to the audio port of my mind machine? I did and it worked. It was a completely non-intrusive experience. Went to sleep, stayed asleep and when I woke up, the mind machine had automatically turned off. I must interject something here, and that is wearing headphones rather than using speakers placed in the corner of my bedroom would have been more effective, and wearing both headphones and lightframes would attain maximum results, but all I wanted was a good night’s sleep, with a little assistance from pulsed audio tones. And with the mind machine and speakers set across the room on a shelf, it was the ideal solution for me.So I began asking others if they had tried this approach. Most of the feedback was describing how one speaker must be placed on one side of the bed and the other directly across from the first. In such a way, the mind can interpret the two distinct channels of frequency, as with headphones.So for example, if Speaker 1 was generating an 8Hz frequency and Speaker 2 was generating a 9Hz frequency, then our minds, because we are situated between the speakers, can interpret the difference between the two frequencies: 1 Hz delta frequency for inducing sleep. One of the neat things about our minds is that they keep surprising us. Forget setting speakers on opposite walls, use small laptop or CD speakers placed next to your mind machine and the mind still hears that 1Hz offset.
Around this time, several of my customers were just starting families. Many tried using pulsed audio tones in their baby’s room to aid in creating a sleep routine. Other couples listened to the tones in their own bedroom. It was by no means a scientific endeavor. My intentions were to share my experience that pulsed audio tones via speakers can be used for achieving the delta state and if they thought it worked for them. They did.
Can pulsed audio sessions be used for entraining a roomful of people simultaneously? Yes. Sound-only applications were tested by psychologists in major law enforcement agencies, teachers and students, hospitals and rehabs, business professionals, retail outlets, even weightlifting. For people that are visually impaired or are photosensitive, sound-only stimulation has also proven to be beneficial.

EFT & AVS
At www.emofree.com, Gary Craig, EFT Founder, describes Emotional Freedom Techniques® (EFT) as “an emotional, needle free version of acupuncture that is based on new discoveries regarding the connection between your body’s subtle energies, your emotions, and your health. EFT has been reported successful in thousands of cases covering a huge range of emotional, health and performance issues.”
A few months ago David McLaughlin, owner of the NeuroLearning Center in Lomas de Chapultepes, Mexico, suggested I visit Gary Craig’s website and download the free EFT manual
and subscribe to EFT’s Insights newsletter, which is also free. After reading the manual and personally trying EFT, it was easy to understand David’s enthusiasm.
David began combining EFT with AVS, finding it a simple and direct method for overcoming personal issues and daily stressors. For the last three years David has utilized EFT / AVS at his NeuroLearning Center with a very high client success rate.
