One of the better programs I have come across is something called Holosync technology at the Centerpointe Research Institute. When karma ripens and subconscious feelings of pain, stress and fear start to surface sometimes the suffering can be too much to bear. If that begins to happen, it is wise to seek help from a qualified lama or reiki healer that you can begin to place your trust in to assist you. Getting out of your comfort zone is so important because when you work with someone else they can more easily see the problems you are facing.
There are times when we go through so much pain and suffering and depression that it can be quite overwhelming and we need immediate relief. I considered this the lazy way to get back on track in that you can lay in bed and allow the guided meditation to work on you. It is a really great, emergency tool to have.
From a Buddhist perspective this practice is very good at fixing and repairing broken or damaged channels. In western scientific terms, that means your nervous system can get an upgrade! Here is an excellent explanation of how this sort of technology works from Bill Harris:
While you are listening to the Holosync® soundtracks used in the program, your brain is creating new neural pathways between the left and right hemispheres. After approximately four months of practice with Awakening Prologue, the initial level of the program, the brain will have completed its creation of the new neural structure needed to handle the stimulus it’s been receiving. (It is the creation of this new structure that is responsible for the positive changes in mental abilities, emotional health, stress level, and self-awareness people experience in the program.)
Just as a runner running a mile each day for several months reaches the point where running that mile will no longer push him into better condition, the Holosync® stimulus from Awakening Prologue will no longer push the nervous system to further changes once the brain has created the structure necessary to handle the input it is receiving.
It should be noted that this therapy does NOT take the place of your regular meditation practice and working on your core issues. It is what Tibetan Buddhists would call a “branch practice”. One’s root practice should always be something authentic like shamatha (concentration) and vipashana (insight) meditation.
As you learn new skills and methods of healing you come to know yourself. Whatever went wrong in the first place happened for a reason. When you step forward to receive authentic help you can begin to see progress being made and get your life back in alignment. I hope you can take these tools to heart so you can quickly discern the real causes and conditions of your problems and heal much faster.
