Generally speaking, we recommend using the InfiniSync programs in the following order- Guided Meditations->NeuroAscent->NeuroPeak->NeuroNova->Awakened Mind->RefinedMind. However, with varying personal preferences and levels of user experience, this is not set in stone (i.e. some people prefer tracks without a spoken voice so they start with NeuroAscent, some people have practiced for years and wish to begin with NeuroPeak, etc). You can try the various programs out yourself and focus on those you find most useful.
We recommend sessions of 20-24 minutes per day, which is roughly 1 InfiniSync track. We have found this to be the optimal amount of time for maximum benefit. Many users say they see greater benefits from using the technology twice per day, so you are welcome to try that if you prefer a quicker result. We don’t recommend going over this, however. Just as it is possible to overdo exercise for the body, it’s possible to overdo exercise for the brain/mind. 1-2 tracks per day is more than enough usage to see amazing results.
A main goal when using InfiniSync is to achieve what we call the “mind awake, body asleep” state, this is where the healing and balancing take place. You will notice your body falling asleep (i.e. deep relaxation) while your mind stays conscious & alert. Your breathing will slow down dramatically while your thoughts occur less frequently — resulting in less physiological response within the body (i.e. developing an immunity to fearful/stressful thinking). Here, your state of mind will naturally move into mindfulness, defined here:
“Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present. When you’re mindful, you observe your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging or labeling them as good or bad. Instead of letting your life pass you by, mindfulness means living in the moment and awakening to experience.” Psychology Today
It usually takes 10 minutes (sometimes more for beginners) to reach a state of meditation, while learning true mindfulness in and out of the meditative state is a bit of a longer process. The more times a person uses the technology, the shorter the amount of time it takes to achieve this highly beneficial mind-state.
It is generally a good idea to be aware of the various layers comprising InfiniSync audio technology. At the highest volume is the tranquil ambient music and/or nature background (calm ocean waves/ relaxing rainfall/ babbling brook, etc), carefully tested to maintain flowing brainwave patterns during your deep meditative state.
Next, you should hear a slight rhythmic volume oscillation, up and down, of the smooth ambient background music- synced directly with the entrainment carrier frequency. This is a new feature, and a very effective form of brainwave entrainment. At varying fractional volumes are the sub-layers of InfiniSync, which contain the harmonic isochronic, monaural and binaural tones of our technology.
Though less prominently audible, these tones have a very beneficial effect on the brainwave patterns, whose distinctive architecture & construction are one of the many potent InfiniSync proprietary secrets.
If we had to give one piece of advice, do not try to listen to the brainwave technology or the ambient soundscape, focus on your breathing. Pay attention to how your thoughts intertwine with your breathing rate — the more relaxed you become via meditation, the less physiological impact your thoughts have on you.
After around 10 minutes of this, your brainwaves will passively mimic and sync with the InfiniSync entrainment frequencies, easily guiding you into various states of meditation.
Just as as an olympic athlete would incorporate a variety of protocols into his/her training regimen to increase the speed/endurance/strength of their body, InfiniSync is a mental/emotional/cognitive toolkit designed to bring excellence to your brain/mind, from a variety of angles. In fact, meditation is gaining huge popularity among professional athletes, with many at the top of their sport declaring their success is in great part owed to the age old mind practice.
Of course, you don’t need to be an elite athlete to experience the limitless benefits of meditation. There are countless people all over the world just like you who have had their lives transformed from the inside out.
We are truly living in the “revolution of the mind” era, with new studies being posted every few days discovering some “new” benefit of meditation. We invite you to experience these limitless benefits with InfiniSync!
The differences between the programs are mostly in the design complexity, the degree to which every proprietary InfiniSync brainwave entrainment feature has been implemented. In other words, during entrainment, certain variables can be turned up and down to tune the session toward a user’s level of experience. For the stronger entrainment sessions, a certain amount of experience and training is necessary for the user to be able to handle the incoming frequencies/features. We have precisely designed InfiniSync with this in mind, ensuring you advance in the most effective and efficient manner possible.
All differ in the degree to which the entrainment variables have been implemented (you can learn about these features in the “How it Works” section):
Binaural Audio Technology, Isochronic Tones, SynchroWave Modulation, Deep Carrier Frequencies, Harmonic Resonance, Polyphasic Patterning, Drum Therapy
You can see our grading of each program from each track’s “Strength” icon location:
All InfiniSync levels bring you the brainwaves of meditation: Alpha, Theta, and Delta, in progression. Levels 1 & 2 are HI/LOW Alpha, Levels 3 & 4 are HI/LOW Theta, and Levels 5 & 6 are HI/LOW Delta, respectively. More specifically, the differences between the brainwave entrainment frequency focus of each InfiniSync program can be found on this benefit chart. The one exception to this rule is the Awakened Mind program, which targets a combination of all brainwave frequencies. You can read more about this program in its respective tab location.
You can see each program’s brainwave state targeting here:
It should be clear at some point during your training with InfiniSync that certain programs/levels are more aligned with your taste/positive experiences, resonating with you on a deeper level. For example, if you find that you really like NeuroPeak Level 2 then that is where you should focus your efforts and sessions (and it’s ok to keep using the same track/tracks if they really work for you). The greatest benefit will come from consistent use, regardless of your preferred program/level. It is important to note that some people respond better to more simple programs, some people like complex, some people like both equally, etc. It is all up to you, there are enough tracks to provide fresh meditative benefits for decades.
InfiniSync’s design is based on the 1000′s of studies conducted on the effectiveness of brainwave entrainment technology, and 10,000’s of studies confirming the powerful benefits of meditation. If you are interested in better understanding the power of this technology and rapidly expanding field of research, then you can find a very abbreviated bibliography here, a very small sample of the studies out there.
There is an incredible array of new physical sensations, thoughts, and feelings one can experience during all levels of the meditation journey, especially for beginners. Much of this is based on user expectation combined with the natural increased level of awareness so easily created through meditation. It is important to know that what InfiniSync is causing you to experience is completely natural and normal, not so much different than what is experienced while sleeping, when many of the same brainwave patterns are present. The difference being is that your normally inaccessible subconscious mind and its heightened awareness is suddenly available to your conscious mind, which is a very profound and good thing. The result? You awaken to a whole new world.
Just like physical exercise for the body, meditation via brainwave synchronization brings temporary benefits that last for a few hours, short term benefits that last all day, and long term benefits that last for a lifetime. If you get to a place where you are happy with your gains, you can simply move to a maintenance routine. 10-20 minutes per session, 2-4 times per week can help you maintain all of your meditative gains. However, most people find InfiniSync so beneficial and pleasurable that they continue use indefinitely.
Though some aspects of the technology will work without them, InfiniSync is designed to be listened to through stereo headphones. Speakers are not recommended because each ear must perceive different tones for the for the full brainwave technology’s effect to work. Headphones that enclose most of both ears are recommended, and definitely do not need to be costly. An inexpensive and highly effective alternative are earbuds/earphones (the kind that fit inside the ear canal).
Used for thousands of years, drum therapy is a time-tested method used to promote and maintain mental, physical, and spiritual wellness. In fact, scientists are becoming increasingly interested in these age-old rhythm healing techniques, with more and more academic studies verifying what our ancient ancestors have known through time.
Research has demonstrated the benefits of drum therapy for its ability to speed up physical healing, releasing of emotional issues, boosting the immune system, creating a deep sense of well-being, reducing stress, lowering blood pressure, and allowing deep relaxation.
What Can Be Helped By Drum Therapy? Stress and all of its countless ugly derivatives, here are a few: anxiety, addiction, chronic fatigue, depression, asthma, hypertension, chronic pain, mental disease, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, emotional disorders, MS, heart problems, & many others. Here are a few results of scientific studies showing the benefits of drumming:
Turn Off Stress Genes. As evidenced by countless studies, stress greatly factors into almost all disease. A landmark 2005 study published in the Medical Science Monitor found that listening to rhythmic drumming not only decreases stress, but also turns off the stress response genes believed responsible for most common diseases. Clearly, the implications for this finding are profound.
Liberate Emotional Blockages. Dysfunctional thoughts and feelings can create energy blockages, eventually developing into emotional and psychological problems. Sound vibration can stimulate deep within each cell of the body, effectively removing blockages and allowing emotional release. In a key 2003 study “Drumming Out Drugs”, researchers concluded that drumming can rebuild & integrate emotional health, while facilitating self expression.
Naturally Release Endorphins. A UC-Irvine researcher discovered that drum therapy can boost the body’s natural painkillers and mood enhancers: endorphins and endogenous opiates. These highly beneficial neurotransmitters are best known for their ability to ease pain, lower stress, bolster the immune system, and slow aging. Rhythmic drumming does all this naturally, and when combined with meditation, can work wonders.
Double Alpha Brainwaves. A study by clinical psychologist Barry Quinn Ph.D found rhythmic drums to double the highly important “meditation brainwaves”, producing feelings of euphoria and advanced mental states. Drum therapy can bypass the sometimes steep meditation learning curve, condensing years of practice, allowing the limitless benefits of this age-old practice to proliferate.
Having a spoken voice on a track does indeed affect the quality of brainwave entrainment. Generally speaking, the brainwaves will not get quite as deep nor be as stable when compared to a voiceless track. Because of this, the voiced programs (Guided Meditation and RefinedMind) do indeed have a reduced strength grade level. While the brainwaves may not get as deep, a well-directed voice can work wonders in teaching you how to meditate (Guided) or providing mind/life improving statements (RefinedMind). InfiniSync was forged with this delicate balance in mind.
Each user will spend a different amount of time with the guided meditation programs. In fact, some users bypass them altogether and start with NeuroAscent (though that is rare). We recommend using each guided program at least a few times — if nothing other than to pick up some meditative pointers to bring to the stronger InfiniSync programs/tracks.
Of course, we also have users who absolutely love the Guided tracks, spending a great deal of time there. We encourage you to follow your intuition and do what you find works best. As long as you use the technology regularly you will see great results, regardless of your chosen InfiniSync programs.
Meditation is the highly-fertile mental environment where an incredible variety of inner and outer transformations take place. All of the benefits listed in the “RefinedMind” section are also common benefits and natural by-products of practicing meditation, as evidenced by countless scientific studies. So, is not entirely necessary to use the “Anxiety” and “Depression” affirmations if you wish to have less anxiety and depression.
However, this type of mind training will help you go the extra mile, speeding up benefits for the already well-trained meditative mind. We suggest building a strong base with the NeuroAscent->NeuroPeak->NeuroNova->Awakened Mind programs and then supplementing with your choice of RefinedMind programs. Using the “base” programs 60%-80% of the time is what many advanced users recommend, regardless of which benefits you seek.
