Coping with Benign Anxieties

Coping with Benign Anxieties


My problem is if I don’t have anything to worry about I’ll think things up. I’ve been this way for as long as I can remember. The scenarios rarely become reality, but that doesn’t stop my overactive mind. All this mindful chatter causes undue anxiety, whether perceived or real, and since most of my internal chatter is harmless I refer to them as my benign anxieties. They may not be malignant, but they can get overwhelming, like my own mind is trying to bully me. For me coping with benign anxieties has become a daily ritual, and it can zap my mental, emotional and physical states of feeling normal.

Physicians have tried to help quell these anxieties through medication. Maybe that works for some people but not me. Instead of helping most often they led to insomnia, disorganized thoughts or feelings of uselessness. Ridiculous!

So I looked beyond traditional western medicine and found brainwave frequency training. This is not biofeedback or eeg neurofeedback. It is the opposite: biofeed-in. No consciously trying to generate the desired brainwave frequency like the two aforementioned technologies. Instead, I choose a built-in light and sound session in the beta, alpha, theta or delta brainwave states or a combination of those states and lay back and relax. No conscious effort is needed, these light and sound sessions gently guide my mind to my pre-chosen targeted conscious state through a process referred to as entrainment.

What exactly is entrainment and how does light and sound stimulation produce this entrainment? The method by which this entrainment occurs is known as the Frequency Following Response (FFR). Through the use of audio (headphones) and visual (eye frames) stimulation, participants are gently guided into specific states of mind. Each audio beat and light pulse is a specific frequency. Our minds “think” in terms of frequency. Brainwaves change frequencies based on neural activity within the brain, be it by hearing, touch, smell, vision and/or taste. These five senses respond to activity from the environment and transmits that information to the brain via electrical signals. Hearing and vision are considered favorable senses for affecting brainwaves safely. By presenting these beats and pulses to the brain, within a few minutes, the brain begins to mimic or follow the same frequencies as the stimuli (the beats and pulses). This process is referred to as entrainment. In essence, light and sound instruments speak to the mind in it’s own language- the language of frequency.

The Frequency Following Response that the mind experiences through light and sound stimulation provides a focus for the brain. This focus safely quells any internal dialogue or “brain chatter”, and enables the participant to reach more quickly and effectively the optimum state of mind targeted for the task at hand (i.e. energizing, learning, relaxing, etc.).

So a light and sound instrument can entrain your mind to experience different levels of your consciousness and help quell my benign anxieties. As such it is a tool, but it is a very enjoyable tool. For a whole new musical experience combine your favorite playlist with a light and sound session. You can actually see, as well as hear, the music as it travels along your brainwaves. It is also for exercising your mind. After all, your brain is like a large muscle. Use light and sound to train your brain to run faster and more efficiently; to show you how to find and access your “zone” and to help clean up that mental fuzz that occasionally interrupts our mental clarity.

The light and sound instrument that I choose is the DAVID Delight Pro by Mindalive. This system has everything I have been in need of: built-in light and sound sessions targeting all four general brainwave states, plenty of information on how to maximize my session experiences and most importantly, it works for me. I’m still aware of my benign anxieties but they no longer control me. I have learned to shut off those anxious thoughts before they interfere with my normal daily life, making life so much more worth living. And I’m a whole lot more productive!



Airports & Travel

Airports & Travel


I enjoy traveling but I do not look forward to going to the airport. I usually fly out of Los Angeles International, LAX for short, although there is nothing lax about it. Must always get there early so we can wait. Oh well, these days it could be a lot worse.  It is the kind of place where you could use a stress management guide.

I really don’t mind going through the security checkpoints, just a fact of life these days. Fortunately we have that fast pass / pre check that makes things a bit easier. Then it’s finding a place by the gate to wait. And wait. People watching can be entertaining, especially the stressed, the intoxicated and/or the families with little kids having conniptions.

Once boarded and all the rigmarole is finished I look forward to the take-offs. Kind of a rush. After that comes finding something to stay occupied with for a few hours. In-flight movies can be entertaining, working on the computer gets old after a while, there’s always gazing out the window. Best to pack a mind machine on my carry-on.

There are several reasons why I always bring my light and sound system on flights.  It can help you sleep on a plane of at home.  For more information about insomnia I recommend you take a look at this article: Beating the Demon of Insomnia.

Foremost is the fact that entraining my brainwaves to relax helps immensely when having to sit in a confined position for several hours. Relaxing my mind, accessing deep alpha and theta mind states, actually relaxes me mentally, emotionally and physically. Being totally relaxed is a great way to fly. Crying babies? Overly-active little kids? Obnoxious adults? Meh…


My mind machine’s headphones block out the noise, the lightframes block out the passengers and the audio/visual frequency stimulation coupled with my favorite playlist takes me on an inner-experience of complete R&R. When I’m traveling with a companion I always pack the extra user package so we both can enjoy a mind machine session simultaneously.

My mind machine of choice is the DAVID Delight Plus by Mind Alive, Inc. Their headphones are excellent, their multi-color lightframes produce incredible visual effects, and the built-in sessions are very effective.


So the next time you find yourself buying an airline ticket, spend a few dollars extra for a mind machine of your own. It takes the stress out of airports and travel.

The ever-powerful presence of my deep understanding of well-being is restoring and revitalizing me… I am healed… I listen to the voice of truth that comes from deep within as it reassures me on every level of awareness that I am designed for well-being. I am meant for well-being. I enjoy my ever-increasing well-being as I heal now and always…


I remember to remind myself that this truth is active within me always… My ever-increasing knowledge of this presence is a source of pure life and health that revitalizes me and restores me so that I am whole and well in all aspects of my being; in every area of my reality…


The truth of my well-being is continually renewing me. Divine life is present in every cell of my body, renewing each cell and organ, infusing each one with cleansing light. Every impurity is washed away, and I feel stronger and better with each passing moment. Better and better with each rising and setting of the sun…


Within every cell of my body, I am restored and renewed and Anointed in my ever-increasing knowledge of my well-being. As my understanding of these truths improves, my health increases dramatically. As healing takes place, I am energized and revitalized. I am at peace with my healing…

I remember the power of faith whenever I embrace healing. With faith, I move beyond the appearance of illness or injury to the spiritual wholeness that permeates all creation.

Overcoming Fentanyl Addiction Script for use with your Mind Machine

Overcoming Fentanyl Addiction Script for use with your Mind Machine


Fentanyl is an opioid pain medication that is highly addictive with rapid onset and short duration characteristics. Record the following script in your own voice and play back while experiencing a deep Theta brainwave frequency session on your light and sound mind machine.

This Drug Addiction script is designed for achieving an aversion to Fentanyl and should be construed as a tool for personal use while simultaneously receiving professional medical treatment.



You are in a comfortable position. Your eyes are closed and your mind machine is generating soft pulses of light and sound stimulation while your consciousness is relaxing, gradually going deeper and deeper. You are beginning to imagine the symptoms of withdrawal. Your stomach aches, you feel nausea, your muscles are ready to cramp. You feel horrible all over. Imagine all these feelings, visualize what they are doing to you, and associate what you are experiencing with Fentanyl.

Associate these negative feelings of withdrawal with Fentanyl itself. It is Fentanyl that is causing these mental, emotional and physical feelings. From now on it is not the withdrawal from Fentanyl that is causing these feelings, it is Fentanyl itself that is bringing on these feelings. You despise how Fentanyl makes you feel.

Fentanyl makes your body physically sick. Your body responds to taking Fentanyl with very uncomfortable feelings. Whenever you take Fentanyl these physically sick feelings begin. You are aware of them. You feel them deeply, very deeply. These negative feelings are extremely uncomfortable. You know this is true. You know it will happen.

Three. You begin to completely withdraw from Fentanyl. What you are feeling, instead of getting worse, is getting better. You are feeling better. You are more alert, more energized, happier than you have been in a long time. Two. You realize it is easy to withdraw, because you feel better. Much better. You understand how bad Fentanyl makes you feel, how depressed and used it makes you. You are no longer it’s puppet. You are amazed at this reverse effect as being an ex-Fentanyl addict becomes a permanent part of your deep subconscious mind. One. Your need for Fentanyl is gone.

Right now you are beginning a new phase in your withdrawal. Your stomach is no longer upset, your pain is gone, your troubles are gone. You are less anxious. Feel good about yourself. Feel good all the time. You know Fentanyl makes you feel bad. You have always known Fentanyl makes you feel bad. Fentanyl is a drug that causes you problems, makes you physically sick, makes you an emotional wreck. You are done with Fentanyl.

You are deeply relaxed. You are allowing your mental, emotional and physical being to completely absorb your positive healing suggestions. You feel how these suggestions are having a complete and thorough effect upon your psyche. Nothing can disturb you. Nothing will bother you. Your withdrawal has begun and you feel relaxed, happy and better than ever.

Alcohol Cessation script for use with the Delight Plus or Kasina Light and Sound Mind Machines

Alcohol Cessation script for use with the Delight Plus or Kasina Light and Sound Mind Machines


Individuals suffering from alcohol dependency oftentimes need assistance with their self-esteem and confidence. Think about what you succeed at, and have an anchor for positive feelings with a physical response, like squeezing your hand into a fist or tightening then relaxing your shoulders. This will help to direct attention away from internal thoughts (brain chatter) and empower you with positive feelings. Do this while listening to the following script while simultaneously running an alpha or theta light and sound session on your Delight Plus or Kasina brainwave frequency stimulation mind machine. Be sure to record this script in your own voice as your mind is more prone to listen to your voice moreso than that of someone else.









“You have been acting and feeling in ways that have taken you away from your own, natural self for a very long time. You have relied more and more on alcohol to help you through the negative feelings which you’ve been experiencing for too long, and you have done so to such a degree that you find yourself denying your self of your own true feelings.

Nobody feels on top of the world all the time and there will be days that could be better for you. It is only by experiencing the lows in life that you can really enjoy and appreciate the highs. Denying your feelings with alcohol does not solve a thing, it just makes things worse, which is why you have now decided that you have had enough of drinking alcohol and you really want help.

Focus now on an area of your life that makes you happy, that is enjoyable for you to remember, like an achievement you accomplished or praise you received. And when that feeling comes to you smile. Now feel it totally and completely, feel it mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually and notice how you feel inside: proud, confident and happy. Allow those good feelings to grow stronger, while you relax, and just let go. When those good feelings are filling you anchor those good feelings by touching your index finger and thumb of your dominate hand, breathe deeply and squeeze your finger and thumb together while your subconscious mind commits those good feelings to memory and anchors it in. Whenever you want to feel this way, all you need to do is take a long, deep breath and touch your index finger and thumb together and feel the negative feelings disappear, replaced with a sense of pride, accomplishment and peace.

Now imagine being in a situation where you would usually reach for your first drink of alcohol. Notice where you are, what you are doing, who is with you or if you are alone. Picture the scene and remember it in as much detail as possible. Notice the feelings inside you as you reach for that first drink and imagine yourself touching your index finger and thumb together. Take a deep breath and as you exhale feel the need and desire for that drink to disappear and be replaced with a sense of pride, accomplishment and peace. Remember those good, confident, positive thoughts and sensations, and realize the power of being in charge and saying “No thank you, I don’t drink.”

You feel good. It feels great to be confident and in charge, and to know that you are free from that old, addictive way of life. Free from that depressing burden of having to drink alcohol, free to get on with your beautiful life, to experience the highs, as well as the lows, knowing this helps you to really appreciate when things get better.

Now think of an alternative activity to do. Change your routine. It doesn’t matter what activity it is as long as it’s a break from what you would usually do. You are changing. Your way of thinking and acting is improving. You are in command, you are taking charge, you are in control of your life. You are free from the addictive way that alcohol affects your life. Yes, there will be moments when you feel pain and anxiety, but these moments will get less as time passes, and you will once again begin to really appreciate the pleasurable things in life, the little things that make you smile and feel good. Simply breathe deeply and touch your index finger and thumb together, and smile.”

Light, Sound & Script for Alcohol Addiction

Light, Sound & Script for Alcohol Addiction

In your own voice record the following script and play back while simultaneously experiencing a light and sound mind machine brainwave frequency session targeting the theta or alpha and theta brainwave state of consciousness:

“You enjoy your light and sound session and are relaxed now, and because you are so relaxed you begin to feel free from all stress, anxiety and fear. You now realize that you are more confident and sure of yourself because you have taken the enormous first step toward helping free yourself from alcohol.

You begin to feel this power from within, motivating you to overcome any and every obstacle that may stand in the way of your happiness, social life and home life.

You will find that from this moment on you are developing more self control. You will now face every situation in a calm, relaxed state of mind. Your thinking is very clear and sharp at all times.

You begin to feel that your self respect and confidence are expanding more and more each and every day in every way. You now realize that in the past drinking was an escape and weakness that you are replacing with confidence, strength and self control. You are becoming a happy person now, with a positive attitude toward life. You are succeeding now, and you have all the abilities for success.”

Being aggravated about something is not something any of us needs. Whether it is from something you did, something someone else did or an inanimate object caused it, getting aggravated throws our whole focus and ability to concentrate right out the window. It can lead to anger, saying things to others we regret or breaking that inanimate object that did absolutely nothing except not performing the way we expected.


So our blood pressure rises, our patience disappears and we become frustrated. So we take a deep breath, hold, then let it out slowly. But the thought of what happened can still linger in the back of our mind. What to do?

photo 2[11]

Its times like this a brainwave entrainment session with a mind machine can come in handy. Perhaps a 15 minute alpha session, perhaps longer. And it really doesn’t matter which light and sound machine you use as long as you choose a relaxation session. Your mind relaxes, your thoughts change from negativity to neutral, and within just a few minutes you go from consternation to enjoying positive thoughts. You realize the aggravation was then, and this is now. Its passed and you are over it.

Its that simple.

When you don’t need a light and sound machine

There are times when a light and sound mind machine just isn’t necessary. Kicking back in a boat, wearing only a swimsuit and sunscreen, enjoying the moment with family and friends, is an example of not needing brainwave frequency stimulation. You are already in your desired state of mind.

Belize Barrior Reef 1a copy

Ambergris Caye is a place you’d never come across a mind machine. They’ve got the world’s second longest barrier reef filled with all kinds of sea life crossing the horizon less than half a mile off their coast. They have Chicken Drop Night on Thursdays at Caliente’s. Perhaps the only place in the world where you can place a bet on which number a chicken will poop on. And win $1,000. The island is a paradise of simplicity, of smiling faces and laughter.

But when it’s time to leave, to get back to work and the refreshing feeling of vacationing in paradise becomes a pleasant memory, a mind machine just may be what you need to rekindle those thoughts for rejuvenating your mental, emotional and physical state of wellness. At least until you are able to return to paradise…
