Perhaps one of the most potent non-invasive, totally chemical free ways to a healthier being is meditation. Meditation doesn’t require any pills, it doesn’t require expensive trips to the doctor. You can do it on your own or with the aid of something as simple as a CD – and that’s where Cindy Locher, CHT comes in. Cindy Locher is a Qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist who has developed 6 different CD’s to help people improve their lives through meditation. The Modern Meditation Series helps get your brainwaves in line to a desired frequency. It’s fascinating to see where our brainwaves reside, depending on whether we’re awake, asleep, excited, or tired.
I’ve had the privilege of experiencing neurofeedback in the past, and I’ve been able to see my brainwaves on a computer screen before and after meditation; it’s simply amazing to see the difference between someone who’s, say, stressed and someone who is relaxed and refreshed. By using three of Cindy Locher’s CD’s I’ve seen a remarkable difference in my own day-to-day life.
The three I’ve been trying are: Schumann’s Resonance, Cumulative Bliss, and my personal favorite, Blissful Sleep. Schumann’s Resonance is a great CD for relaxing and getting back in tune with nature. Cumulative Bliss is good for relaxing and calming the mind, and Blissful Sleep is my new nighttime friend. As a lifelong insomniac, I’ve tried many things through the years to help me sleep. I cannot, no matter if I tried, make it through this CD without falling into a deep sleep. My mind whirs and talks all on its own with little prompting from me, replaying the day’s events or something that occurred 20 years ago; but with the Blissful Sleep CD, I find myself drifting away and actually thinking of nothing until I drop off to sleep. This for me is an incredible blessing.
I’ve enjoyed all three of the series; I’m fascinated with the sounds and musical quality of the CD’s. They’re pleasant to listen to, and it’s an odd sensation to actually feel your brain sort of wander through the sounds; it’s as if my mind is playing and floating along. Cumulative Bliss, for instance, actually “wakes” you back up out of a very relaxed state at the same point in the CD every time as if someone gently nudges you awake – but you awake slowly, without any annoying voices saying, “You are now awaking from a deep and restful journey.” Overall, I’d say the results I’m getting from the Modern Meditation Series are similar to what I experienced during neurofeedback – and that was a very positive experience indeed!
