I’d like to talk today about a new program called Healing Light. Over the last few months, we’ve been receiving emails and posts on our Facebook practitioners’ forum, asking if it would be possible to create a program that carried the signatures of sunlight—as well as all the other types of energies that are either…

When I first began meditating, I did so partially as a way to bring some relief from more than two decades of bipolar disorder in which I experienced periods of severe depression for months at a time every year of my adult life. When I first started meditating, I enjoyed a lot of benefits and…

Last week we defined the shadow, according to Carl Jung, and discussed how to recognize the shadow when it’s trying to get our attention. (See The Neuroscience of Shadow Integration Part I.) Today I’d like to talk about the possible neural correlates of the persona and the shadow. First, I’d like to point out that none of this…

My hope is that this article will inspire you to use the power of your own consciousness to become aware of your shadow, to allow it to be your teacher, and to integrate it. As we become more deeply and mindfully centered in our hearts, the recognition and integration of previously unconscious shadow processes changes our…

An iAwake Techonologies practitioner wrote in recently, saying that after listening to VisionQuest, he felt “a low pressure” in his third eye area for two to three days afterwards. He wondered if anyone else was having a similar experience and what the pressure might signify. This is a common report we hear from people who use…

Biofield technology is an important aspect of what the Profound Meditation Program 3.0 offers, complemented by its uniquely powerful brainwave entrainment technology. Last week, I described how PMP 3.0’s brainwave entrainment technology differs from traditional brainwave entrainment, and this week, I’d like to talk about what biofield technology is and how we use it. In essence, our biofield technology…

Brainwave entrainment represents a way of using technology to take our meditation and our spiritual practices into territory that has previously been very difficult, if not impossible, for us to venture into. My inspiration for creating the Profound Meditation Program 3.0 was not about just adding binaural beats or isochronic tones to music, using conventional audio entrainment methods to create…

The idea behind VisionQuest is to help facilitate the desire to transform one’s life through receiving a deeper insight into what is holding one back or what is necessary for moving to the next level. Shamanic journeying is a different way of gaining knowledge and wisdom than what is generally accepted here in the West, where we…

“We say Newton discovered gravitation. Was it sitting anywhere in a corner waiting for him? It was in his own mind; the time came and he found it out. All knowledge that the world has ever received comes from the mind; the infinite library of the universe is in your own mind. The external world…

I’d like to share two very simple but very profound and powerful practices that can help us to develop deeper self-love and acceptance, and deeper empathy. With these practices, we gain a sense of being attuned not only to others, but also to ourselves. In fact, we find that there’s a reciprocal relationship: the more we become…

The energy of the Golden Mean, is one of the key ingredients in iAwake Technologies’ new Energy Alchemy Series. This energy band has an interesting history for a number of reasons. One is that it turns up at all of the genuine spiritual pilgrimage sites, which are famous for people having profound, brief awakenings, or…

iAwake Technologies’ new Energy Alchemy Series consists of three different tracks: Anahata, Meditative Ocean, and WorldSpirit Remixed. What each of these have in common is that they all include both the “Energy of the Golden Mean”, and the “white energy band, also known as “white light.”  I explained briefly about these energy bands in my recent blog “Introducing iAwake’s…

One of the really important structural changes we see due to long-term meditation occurs in the middle prefrontal areas of the brain. In recent blogs, I have discussed what scientists are learning about the structural changes in the thalamus, the left prefrontal cortex, and the parietal lobe. Here I will discuss the findings regarding the…

In this series we will be looking at four key structures in our brains that change as a result of long-term meditation: the thalamus, the left prefrontal cortex, the parietal lobe, and the middle prefrontal areas. You can read about the implications of changes that occur in the thalamus in my previous blog Meditation and the…

One of the key structures in the brain that has been found to be physically changed through long-term meditation is the thalamus. Long-term meditation also affects the prefrontal cortex, the parietal lobe, and the middle prefrontal areas, but here I will focus on the changes to the thalamus and their implications. The thalamus is a…

One of the most common emotional problems we experience revolves around performance anxiety—whether it involves a job interview, a difficult math test, creating a new relationship, or especially public speaking.  Building on the seven important insights into obtaining emotional freedom that I shared with you in my last blog, this time, instead of theorizing about…

Insight #1: Every emotional experience, including anxiety, has two components: The story which seems to give rise to the emotional experience. The energy behind that experience, the stream of sensation accompanying it. We often get so caught up in the story that is attached to our emotions, that we unwittingly magnify the energy behind such experiences, and in reality…
