Holosync Meditation - Does It Really Work?
By GiGi Konwin
Chances are, if you are on a quest for self-improvement, you've already heard of the Holosync Meditation CD's.
What It Is:
Developed by Bill Harris in the late 1980s, the Holosync Solution is an audio program designed to bring your brain waves to the alpha (and lower)levels automatically just by listening to the cds. According to Bill: "Holosync is a way to create deep meditation easily, precisely and consistently."
Beyond The Hype:
I thought it was about time someone talked about what it's REALLY like to use the Holosync cds. I've been using the program for 2 years fairly consistently. That means sitting down almost every day, putting on my headphones and doing nothing else for an hour. It's a huge time commitment and there were times I wondered if it was worth it.
In The Beginning:
Unlike the other testimonials you may have read, I did not experience profound changes after listening to the first cd. In fact, for the most part, I fell asleep! But that's okay, because the more I listened, the less sleeping I did. Truth be told, I still doze off when I'm starting a new level. Each new level takes you into deeper meditative states and requires an adjustment.
As Time Goes By:
Here I am, two years later, still making the time and financial commitment to stick with it. Why? Because I'm amazed at the person I've become. Over the course of the two years:
- I'm calmer
- I rarely get angry.
- I have a more positive attitude.
- I've become more spiritual.
- I'm happier - negative thoughts creep in, but they don't stay.
Would I have experienced this growth without Holosync? Maybe, but I believe it would have taken much longer.
Have I reached the "nirvana" state while meditating? A couple of times I have experienced that deep all-encompassing sense of peace, but for the most part, my thoughts tend to drift. I try to start each session with an affirmation or goal statement, but often I'll end up working out a problem or thinking about other things. It seems to work anyway and I always feel refreshed and calm at the end of a session.
What About Using Other Programs?
Absolutely! I've used and still incorporate other programs into my Holosync meditation. I mentioned affirmations, but other types of releasing programs work well, even different meditation techniques can work with Holosync.
Self improvement should be a never-ending quest. You can usually gain some new insights by listening to a different point of view.
