Shameless Promotional Post for Transparent Corp
Yes, I receive a commission if you click on any of the links in this post and buy any of the brainwave entrainment products from Transparent Corp. With that out of the way, let me add that I promote their products with a clear conscience because I use their Neuro-Programmer 3 (NP3) myself and am very impressed with it.
Before I came to Cambodia, I shelled out about $500 for a rival product, Holosync. One of the most successfully marketed brainwave entrainment (bwe) products, Holosync works, but only because bwe works. I became disillusioned with a lot of the claims made by Bill Harris, the company’s founder. He’s a great salesman, but his only actual product is delta brainwave entrainment. Delta is the frequency associated with deep sleep. Holosync worked for me, sometimes spectacularly, like the time I became temporarily paralysed because I couldn’t find my body at the end of a session and the time I consciously “slept” a deep, dreamless sleep. If delta sounds enticing to you, don’t worry — there are delta sessions on the product I am about to describe to you.
Delta is not necessarily the Holy Grail Harris claims it to be. Studies have shown that experienced Zen practitioners and yogis enter other brainwave states. Besides, bwe is good for much more than just meditation. Brainwave entrainment can be used to:
- Relieve stress & anxiety
- Strengthen emotional stability
- Improve mental focus & cognition
- Enhance the effects of affirmations
- Increase energy
Here’s a list of all the categories available on NP3. I’ve just clicked on “Studying-Learning” because it’s one of the shortest lists and should be of interest to freelance writers.
Basically, every state of consciousness we experience, from deep sleep to hyperactivity, has brainwave patterns associated with it. Brainwave entrainment works by introducing frequencies to your brain via sound and/or light. The brain naturally “entrains” to the frequency through a mechanism called the frequency following response (FFR). There’s a mountain of scientific evidence to prove it, but in my opinion, experience is the best teacher.
There are different ways to get your brain to entrain. One of them is with binaural beats. Binaural beats work by introducing different beats to each ear. The Holosync program used binaural beats, but they are not always the most effective. NP3 uses a variety of techniques, some designed for hyperactive people who have trouble with brainwave entrainment.
Most bwe products would have you believe sound is the only way to entrain, but it ain’t so. In fact, light is believed to work better. Neuro-Programmer 3 includes screen visualisations to enhance the experience. Here’s a short demonstration from a screen visualisation for focus session:
That in itself isn’t enough to give you the experience of brainwave entrainment, but hopefully is enough to tempt you to download the free trial version of Neuro-Programmer 3 and try it yourself.
The best pitch I can give for Transparent Corp is that many if not most commercial bwe products available today are made using their professional Transparent Commercial Network (TCN) program.
There are two versions of NP3. I just use the Regular Edition, but for $30 more (as of this writing), you can buy the Ultimate Edition. Click here to compare their features.
