CES (Cranio-electrical Stimulation) was developed in the Soviet Union in the late 1940s and has since been used by millions of people all over the world. Research demonstrates that CES produces a mild stimulation in the hypothalamic area of the brain, resulting in balancing neuro-transmitter activity (in particular Beta Endorphin and Norepinephrine). The effects achieved are similar to that of a “jogger’s high”.

Chakra frequencies are associated with our inner power, referred to in eastern religions as the kundalini. These frequencies can activate certain centers along the base of the spine upwards to the brain. These frequencies are not the natural sounds associated with the activation of chakras, but do an excellent imitation, resulting in very beautiful and powerful experiences.

Chords are combinations of tones that (hopefully) sound harmonious. Harmony occurs when the fundamental pitches of the tones are in ratios of small integers, such as 2/1 (octave), 5/3 (sixth), 3/2 (fifth), 4/3 (major third), or 6/5 (minor third). Most people hear tones closer than a minor third as dissonant. When tones get still closer in frequency, beats occur.

Biofeedback is a process by which participants must generate the targeted brainwave with no outside stimulation.

Biofeed-in is another term used to describe how the entrainment process of light and sound stimulation is performed. The opposite of biofeedback.

Brainwaves are the electrical wave patterns generated by our brain. Our brain contains roughly 100 billion neurons that function by generating and passing these electrical signals. The sum of all these electrical signals and their activity can be recorded and observed via an EEG instrument. These brain waves appear as irregular yet repetitive “wavy lines” that are a mixture of frequencies ranging from below 1Hz to more than 40Hz. The predominance of a certain brain wave frequency is what determines what brain state or state of awareness an individual is experiencing at any given moment. Brain waves are the voltage patterns generated by the brain. The brain contains some 100 billion neurons which operate by generating and passing electrical signals. The summation of all this electrical activity results in signals that can be detected and recorded outside the brain. Different brain wave patterns have been found to be associated with different states of awareness.

Cautions when used as a medical disclaimer: For individuals, AVS / light and sound stimulation has been proven to be extremely save and effective. However, whether knowingly or not, there are a small percentage of individuals with undiagnosed photosensitive epilepsy who experience their first seizure when exposed to pulsing light. Flashing traffic lights, video games, emergency vehicle lights, and entertainment strobe lights have all initiated seizures in such individuals. Therefore, if you experience any uneasiness or nausea during your first light and sound experience, take off the glasses immediately and stop your light and sound session. Consult your physician for a diagnosis and proper medical prevention. Also, seek your doctor’s supervision before using a light and sound device if you: have ever experienced any form of seizure disorder or epilepsy; have ever suffered any type of head injury or concussion; are presently or have recently taken prescription or illegal psychoactive drugs, such as barbiturates, tranquilizers, or stimulants of any type; are sensitive to bright or pulsing light, or find that such light can produce headaches or other discomforts; have a pacemaker or suffer from any form of cardiovascular problems including cardiac arrhythmia’s or other heart disorders; have a history of mental disorders and/or hallucinations; suffer from any major health problem. No medical claims are made for using light and sound products. Do not use a light/sound machine to try to heal yourself. They are a powerful self-improvement tool and can help you achieve deep states of relaxation, but they can in no way replace the knowledge and expertise your physician or other health care professional provides.

AVS Journal vol 9.1

Beats are amplitude variations that result when pure tones spaced close together in pitch are mixed. When tone pitches are far enough apart, the result of mixing tones is consonance (sounds okay). As the mixed tones get within an octave of each other, they sound good only if the tones form good chords. When they get still closer, the effect shifts to beats. A trigonometric formula, long since forgotten by many, expresses the addition of two pure tones as:

sin(a) + sin(b) = 2*(sin((a+b)/2)*cos((a-b)/2))

Interpreting the formula, beats are perceived as the average pitch (a+b)/2 modulated (pulsed) at the difference frequency (a-b). If you are paying close attention and noticed the disappearing 1/2, cos(a-b)/2 has two amplitude peaks per cycle, so the modulation is perceived to be at frequency (a-b) not (a-b)/2. When you listen to a mixture of slowly changing tones on a dual binaural beat instrument, fascinating beat effects are heard.

Beta brainwave frequencies are associated with are normal waking state. Beta frequencies range between 13-34Hz.

Binaural beats result when pure tones at different beats are simultaneously heard by both ears. For instance, say one tone of 200Hz is heard predominantly by the left ear. Another tone of 190Hz is heard predominantly through the right ear. These two pure tones are heard and processed separately, depending upon their arrival time, by our auditory center. If these two tones are of the same pitch, the resulting sound will be perceived as being inside our head. But if both tones have slightly different pitches, the resulting effect will sound more like a back and forth movement. Binaural beats result when pure tones at slightly different pitches are heard by the two ears. The effect is different from a mixed tone beat phenomenon, because the tones are heard and processed separately by the auditory apparatus. Our mechanism for localizing the source of a sound depends on detecting differences of arrival times of the sound waveform — two tones of the same pitch but at different phases will be perceived as being inside the head, closer to the ear in which the sine wave peaks first. Tones of slightly different pitches appear to have constantly shifting phase, and the source appears to move back and forth within the head at the rate of the difference of the pitches. This is commonly but inaccurately described as “hearing the difference frequency”. You can experiment with this effect with a light and sound machine that generates controlled sine wave binaural beats.

AVS (Audio Visual Stimulation) devices influence your state of mind using specially designed light and sound stimulation. Also referred to as light and sound or mind machines. Flickering lights and pulsating sound have been used for centuries to influence moods, from music for relaxation to adrenaline-raising dances around the tribal fire. AVS systems have the advantage that the stimulation is more controlled and better designed for its purpose. They are very effective relaxation tools, assist in meditation and can aid the learning process.

Activation frequencies are used in session design to “turn on” or guide the participant to specific states of awareness, as in beta, alpha, theta, delta.

ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) The American Psychiatric Association (APA) has identified and defined this disorder. According to the American Psychiatric Association (1980), ADD is indicated when children display inappropriate inattention, impulsivity, and sometimes hyperactivity for their mental and chronological age. ADD may be diagnosed as with or without hyperactivity. Approximately 20% of the population will be diagnosed as having ADD.

ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a behavioral condition in which children have difficulties paying attention and focusing on tasks. This common disorder begins in early childhood and can continue into adulthood. If not recognized and treated, it can cause problems at home, in school, at work and with relationships.

In closing…

In closing, I would like to ask all of you who own pets for your assistance. I believe sound frequencies could be of benefit to these members of our family, but have experienced difficulty in having this idea accepted by veterinarians.

virtual515 MP3

This idea came to me when I had to leave one of my kittens overnight at the vets for observation. Picture this: One large room of people’s pets that are in cages. All of them are stressed from being away from their families and being placed together in this room. Many do not feel well. Others are recovering from operations. They all feel alone. It is nighttime and all the lights are out. Hopefully an attendant occasionally checks in on them.

There are sound sessions that could help them relax, perhaps even fall asleep.

Now if relaxing is conducive to our wellbeing, aiding us in our response to medical treatment and recovery, is it too hard to believe that our pets would experience the same benefits? Please give this idea consideration, for your own pets.

In sponsoring learning/relaxation programs, I have had the opportunity of using several light and sound instruments designed by the best manufacturers, including InnerQuest, MindGear, MindPlace and MindAlive. They have all proved to be effective mind entrainment devices.

As mentioned earlier, every light and sound manufacturer that I have met has always been willing to listen and to help when they can. And I am grateful for their understanding that my sometimes critical displeasure stems from an inability to meet a customer’s specific need because a product does not exist, even though the technology is available. The manufacturers all have come a long way, always improving the sessions and features of their particular products, and it will be interesting to see over the next few years the various directions and emphasis each manufacturer takes.

Until now, I have always kept the learning and relaxation programs described in this book confidential. After all, people have a right to keep what is happening in their personal lives private. Plus, when working with public schools and government agencies, for example, there are many underlying issues (mainly politics) that could surface should the general population take notice. Why? Because doctors and psychologists are expected to prescribe pills, not cost-effective instruments, to help people in need. And teachers are expected to follow a lesson plan, regardless of their class size and budgetary constraints. But mainstream America is wising up. There are a great many tools and techniques out there that are proving to be safer and more cost efficient than what has been termed “acceptable” by professional medical practitioners.

Some of my programs will remain confidential. But I wrote this book because so many of my clients thought I should. They believe in this technology. They purchase a unit for a specific purpose and find new ways of incorporating it into their lifestyle. Be it for business, pleasure, academic enhancement or for overcoming pain, they are the ones who share their experiences and they are the reason why this technology is gaining acceptance. To all my clients, you have taught me a lot about light and sound. Thank you!

Now I would like to take a moment to address an issue that has received very little attention from the leaders in the light and sound community. I have always felt that the visually impaired have been neglected when the mention of light and sound is discussed. But how would you react if suddenly your vision began to deteriorate? Would you feel anger? Would you be afraid? Do you think learning the Braille keyboard is easy? There is a lot of frustration involved. And an incredible amount of stress. Okay, granted the pulsating light aspect of this technology would have little effect, but dual binaural beat sound generation sure helps. I have participated in the Braille Institutes’s Open House and have heard their concerns. I have spoken about these concerns with Christopher Oliver on radio (KPFK Challenge talk show) and television (KSAZ Fox News).

Mind States by Michael Landgraf

To illustrate how sound generation can assist the visually impaired, I would like to share the following experience that happened to one of my visually impaired clients. Due to the deterioration of her eyesight, Laura Riggs had to return to school because she could no longer fulfill the responsibilities associated with her profession. Returning to school after twenty-five years was a real undertaking for her. Laura experienced difficulty with retaining new information which in turn caused more stress. Her grade point average was at 2.0 or a “C”. She then began using the 515. Her anxiety level declined and her test scores improved. She began to retain the information being read to her on tape. And her grade point average increased to a 3.2 or “B+”. And at this moment, Laura is completing her final semester at a major California University. Since Mind States was originally written, Laura has also received her masters degree.

Hopefully, research can increase concerning sound generation and the visually impaired. And perhaps those with hearing deficits can receive attention in regards to research exclusively utilizing pulsed light stimulation. After all, we all experience various forms of stress.

 Mind States by Michael Landgraf

I originally found Dr. Jernigan’s work from reading his book “Beating Lyme Disease”. It was then that I realized how focused many of us in the light and sound community are in utilizing L/S technology in mind / brain associated applications and how narrow our thinking is for sticking to that approach. After reading about the “Bio-Crystalline Matrix” I am confident many of you, like myself, will begin to expand your L/S applications to include the entire body. I am fascinated by what Dr. Jernigan is doing and after reading his articles, believe you will be too. Find out what our “Bio-Crystalline Matrix” is and how it can be altered. Dr. Jernigan is part of the Somerleyton Center for Biological Medicine. After reading “Joan’s Story”, you may wish to give them a call (316-686-5900).

Free stuff. I must mention this! My reason for writing “Mind States” is to help you understand what light and sound is and how to confidently use your light and sound machine. But new research and information occurs daily. That is why I publish the AVS Journal. It is available at Mindmachines.com and is designed to keep you “light and sound” current. After ten years and nineteen issues, it is still free. The AVS Journal is a constantly updated report about light and sound technology by the people who make it happen. Current information, especially free, can be hard to find. Now you have access to hundreds of pages of information contributed by industry leaders throughout the world.

And for all of you who are told your child should use light and sound, how do you explain it to them? How do you get your child to understand using this technology could be beneficial for their particular need? What do you say that motivates them to do a session? Is the prospect of using this technology creating apprehension, perhaps anxiety, on their part? If your child is young and enjoys coloring books, download Fossil Phil’s “Light, Sound & Fun” coloring book. It is a free pdf download at AVSJournal.com. Nothing “scientific” is implied. It’s just forty-nine pages of pictures to color with a story by Fossil Phil. Put together to help your child view light and sound as a fun experience, it will provide hours of entertainment for your child as they color in the pictures and read how others their age use light and sound. It is the only light and sound coloring book around, at least as I write this, and it is helpful. Free, too. It is something Fossil Phil wanted to make available for kids and is an excellent way for your children to have fun and learn about the advantages of using light and sound technology.
