Waking up early rather than sleeping in

Waking up early rather than sleeping in

The other day I received an email question that went something like this: “I have a very difficult time waking up early in the day. I have tried getting into a routine but I find it is just not as effective. Previously my habits were as such that I loved sleeping in. However, now I would like to wake up very early and become more productive. However, it seems like my body just is not ready to get up when I want to. How would I use my mind machine to help me with this challenge?”

Stress keeping you from a good night's sleep?

When you start getting up earlier, make time to do an energize/beta session on your Delight Pro. Use the same type of brainwave entrainment session if you have a DAVID Delight Plus by Mindalive or Procyon or Kasina by Mindplace. The light and sound brainwave frequency session doesn’t have to be long, say around 15-20 minutes and you may like binaural beat frequencies the best. This mind machine session is excellent for clearing away sleepiness and the cobwebs making for a great way to start your early mornings. And should you get sleepy in the afternoon, try a quick break light and sound mind machine (also known as brain machine or psychowalkman) session consisting of beta or perhaps high alpha brainwave frequencies.

Overcoming Fear

Overcoming Fear

 

A customer asked: “We all have fear and most of it comes from our thoughts. And in my business there is fear of rejection, fear of looking foolish, fear of failure, etc…. How would I use the mind machine to help overcome fear?”

DAVID-Delight_PlusDAVID Delight Pro w/ CES Mind Machine

My answer: “By realizing fear is not worth it. Being afraid of something is one thing, but fear is like a preconceived notion that something is going to go wrong. That causes undue stress and anxiety and can lead to failure. Screw-ups are going to happen, so is being rejected. It sucks, but it happens to all of us. Make fear less important in your thoughts, try smiling when you have thoughts of fear. Fear is an unnecessary emotion when it comes to sales so learn to relax and don’t dwell on what makes you fear the unknown, instead turn those negative thoughts of fear into positive feelings of self-confidence. Try an alpha/theta session that is built into the DAVID Delight Plus or Delight Pro by Mindalive or the Procyon or Kasina by Mindplace light and sound brainwave frequency entrainment systems to get you into a hypnogogic state of consciousness where you can visualize any fear into asking yourself why you are fearful of something that hasn’t even happened yet. And smile when fear enters your thoughts, like you are challenging that word because you are better than fear, smarter than fear, and it has no place in your thoughts. It is not welcome in your life the same as all other negative thoughts. Alpha sessions and alpha/theta sessions that are part of the above mentioned mind machines (also known as brain machines and psychowalkmans) are great for reducing anxiety associated with fear.”

If you are in the direct selling business

If you are in the direct selling business…

A customer asked me a very interesting question the other day about training with mindmachines  that is worth sharing with those of you in the business of direct selling. She is in the direct selling business which requires going out talking to people and making phone calls and such. In her past that hasn’t been her personality, She has decided to change herself. She truly enjoys the growth and personal development that comes with it. She studies a lot of training like with Grant Cardone and Tom Hopkins. And she asks: “How would I use my mind machine to help me memorize the training better, and is there a way to make it a part of myself sooner. (Than say the 10000 hours rule)”

To which I replied: “Something I learned long ago from listening to Tony Robbins was where he said your mind will listen to your own words moreso than listening to someone else saying the same thing. So what I do, and have suggested to many others, is record in your own voice the material you want to commit to memory and listen to that audio track while doing a light and sound session. Light and sound brainwave frequency entrainment systems like the DAVID Delight Pro, DAVID Delight Plus, Mindplace Procyon and Proteus are excellent choices when committing to memory what you are learning. Most people choose to use a theta binaural beat frequency session, some find alpha the better choice. For me theta works best, but as all of us are different, what works best for one not always works best for another. Your mind machine has an input port and comes with a stereo patch cord for connecting your audio device to the mind machine unit (sometimes referred to as brain machine, dream machine and psychowalkman) enabling you to do this method.”

HOW TO ACCESS NEW MARKETS FOR SELLING YOUR PRODUCTS

HOW TO ACCESS NEW MARKETS FOR SELLING YOUR PRODUCTS

 

When looking at the prospect of entering a new market that you think could benefit from the products you offer seems like an excellent idea but wondering HOW you can gain access inhibits you from trying, there is a visualization method you can employ by using the DAVID Delight Plus or DAVID Delight Pro light and sound mindmachines by Mindalive that just may hold the answer.

mind-machines51

Both the Delight Plus and Delight Pro mindmachines, also referred to as brain machines, dream machines or psychowalkmans, contain visualization sessions targeting the theta brainwave frequency state of consciousness. When experiencing a theta session, your mind is gently guided into theta with absolutely no conscious effort whatsoever. You just sit back, close your eyes and relax. The soft pulsing of the lights and binaural audio beats do all the work.

And the method is simple. Do one 30 minute theta brainwave session once a day for five consecutive days then set aside your mind machine. In two days the HOW should be realized. It’s like the idea was always there, and entering the new market was already in your mind, but you just did not recognize it due to mind fog, brain chatter, anxiety or whatever.

This method is what I used to enter several new markets, ranging from medical professionals, athletes, law enforcement agencies and academics. I employ this method often, and being a business owner for over 25 years can testify to the fact this visualization method of using mindmachines can increase public awareness of who you are and the products you offer.

The result… increased sales.

Creativity & the California Drought

Creativity & the California Drought

Water conservation has been at the forefront of local news for several months because of the extreme water shortage here in Southern California. So I put my DAVID Delight Pro mind machine to the test, using an alpha / theta light and sound brainwave frequency session and thinking ‘creativity and the California drought’.

mind-machines76

I came up with an idea that saves my household over 150 gallons of water per week. We have rain barrels connected to the gutters surrounding our home for those rare moments when it actually rains and after that one alpha / theta brainwave entrainment session, I had an ‘aha’ revelation…

Since I rarely use bleach-based laundry detergent when I wash clothes and such, why not connect the washing machine grey water to one of the rain barrels?

So I did. Behind the washing machine I changed the pipes so I could either let the grey water flow directly into the rain barrel or flip a switch and have the water flow into the drain pipe like before. It took less than three hours of labor and $40 for parts.

The result has surprised us all and gotten the attention of our neighbors. Since the retrofit, I have not had to use tap water for inside or outdoor plants or for washing our cars. And concerning the plants, we’ve noticed that affids and other unwanted bugs no longer find our plants to their liking and have gone elsewhere, yet ladybugs and the occasional preying mantis’ still call our yard home.

So if you are like us, living in a drought and looking for ways to decrease your water consumption, think about redirecting the used water from your washing machine. You’ll notice a huge drop in water usage on your next Department of Water and Power bill and feel good about saving water wherever possible. And to come up with original ideas of your own for conserving water, try a creativity light and sound session on the DAVID Delight Pro mind machine!

R.I.P. David McLaughlin

R.I.P. David McLaughlin

 

David McLaughlin was well known in the light and sound mind machine community. Having worked with the late Rayma Ditson-Sommer, Ph.D. in Scottsdale, Arizona for years, then later taking his knowledge of brainwave entrainment to Egypt and for the last few years Mexico City. It was in Mexico where David did his greatest work, helping women empower themselves who before had little to no self-esteem. David McLaughlin was a leader in his use of mindmachines and his absence will be greatly missed by many.

For me, one of the most fascinating examples of David’s ability in utilizing light and sound brainwave equipment was what he called the “Principle of Thwack”. That name he gave it was hilarious and yet extremely defining. His approach to helping those in need through this principle improved the lives of many. In my book “Mind States: An Introduction to Light and Sound Technology” you can read about David’s principle and exactly what it’s purpose is.

Before his death, David visited his sister in Santa Barbara, California. It was here that the following four 30 second videos were taken. They illustrate how witty and insightful David McLaughlin could be.

Is your blood pressure rising?

Is your blood pressure rising?

 

A few years back I met an assistant coach for a local professional basketball team that had high blood pressure. He was being constantly monitored by a nurse as his team traveled around the country making sure his blood pressure was stable. Being followed around by her 24/7 drove him crazy – his words, not mine. So I turned him on to a light and sound mind machine (also known as a brain machine, dream machine, even psychowalkman). I showed him how to use the mind machine and suggested he try the built-in sessions in the alpha and theta brainwave frequency ranges. The sessions helped immensely and the team was able to scale back the nurse’s long hours of making sure his blood pressure was in the healthy range. And I was the lucky recipient of several excellent tickets for some exciting NBA games. Volunteer work does have its perks!

 

With advanced technology mind machines have become even more effective. And as I’ve gotten older I find I too am beginning to see my blood pressure gradually rise. So I practice what I’ve preached and depending upon if I’m home or away use the Bluetooth MindLightz by Mind Gear or my Delight Pro by Mind Alive.

My doctors tell me to keep exercising, eat healthy and keep using my mind machines. So I do, and I feel great.

 

If you are experiencing the symptoms of high blood pressure consider purchasing a mind machine. It will help you feel less stress, you’ll sleep more soundly and you’ll have a more positive mental, emotional and physical state of mind.

 

One fifteen minute light and sound mind machine session two or three times per week can do wonders for your personal wellbeing. Try it and you will understand…
