Your higher consciousness from a convenient CD

The audio technology, embedded on a CD beneath the sounds of rain, uses our proprietary harmonically layered binaural frequencies to guide your mind into a highly focused and attentive mental state that is extremely conducive to higher-level thinking. Using the CDs in the Focus 2-Disc Set, you can easily and effortlessly attain a state of intense clarity, enhanced concentration, and superior focus.

The Focus CDs swiftly ease your mind into a highly focused brainwave state that will take your mental processing to new levels. Each time you listen, the audio technology will work to stimulate your brain while in this highly focused state, triggering neural pathways to fire, enhancing communication between various parts of the brain and bringing your brain into a state of hemispheric synchronization. Research has indicated that this same state of brain synchronization is consistently found in the brainwave patterns of highly intelligent, creative and successful individuals.

By listening to the Focus CDs while reading, studying, or working, you can dramatically improve your levels of concentration and clarity, significantly increase your memory retention, and enhance your mental functioning.

The Focus collection is comprised of two discs. Each disc works in a unique way to enhance your focus, clarity, attention, and concentration for a variety of situations.

The tracks are designed with long running times (ranging from 22 to 72 minutes) in case you would like to read, work, study, or exercise for a long period of time, but you do not need to listen to a track in its entirety to obtain the benefits. You may listen to only a portion of the track if you’d like. The frequencies were also arranged with continuous peaks to keep you as focused as possible if you need to concentrate for long stretches of time.

Disc 1 contains one 72-minute track titled Clarity:

Clarity is intended for listening in situations that require relaxed concentration, such as reading or engaging in a hobby. Clarity may also be used during an exercise session—while jogging, for example—to assist you in achieving the “zone” described by many athletes. Clarity utilizes the Alpha brainwave state.

Disc 2 contains two separate tracks:

The first track, titled Focus, is a 50-minute track intended for listening while performing tasks that require heightened attention, such as working, studying, or any situation requiring specific attention to detail. Focus utilizes the Beta brainwave state. The second track, titled Envision, is a 22-minute track to be used whenever a creativity boost is needed. Envision may also be used for quick problem-solving and brainstorming sessions in order to trigger creative and innovative solutions. Envision utilizes the Theta brainwave state.

Both the Clarity and the Focus tracks may be used to trigger enhanced mental processing and higher-level thinking. Several research studies have proven the effectiveness of using Alpha and Beta brainwave states to enhance mental performance.

Clinical Studies

Binaural audio has been used in the classroom to enhance learning ability. Under the direction of psychologist Devon Edrington, students taking an Introductory Psychology course used audio tapes containing binaural beat technology to influence learning ability. The study found that students who were taught, studied, and took tests while listening to the binaural audio tapes did significantly better than a control group not using the tapes. Students using binaural audio tapes scored, on average, approximately ten points higher than students not using the tapes. (Edrington, D., 1984, A Palliative for Wandering Attention, research paper.)

In studies conducted by Harold Russell, Ph.D., and his associate, John Carter, training of the brain hemispheres of students was found to significantly improve the students’ performance scores on the WAIS I.Q. test.

In a 1984 Megabrain Report, Dr. Gene Brockopp reported that “coherence of high frequency EEG (brainwave) patterns is apparently related to increased intellectual functioning.”

Research indicates that brainwave audio technology can improve concentration and help fight memory loss.

The Focus 2-Disc Set may be used by adults or children with ADD or ADHD to improve levels of concentration and clarity, offering a drug-free alternative to enhance attention and cognitive functioning. In the past two decades, several research studies have proven the effectiveness of binaural audio in increasing attention, improving concentration and focusing skills, and treating ADD.

In 1991, at the annual meeting of the Association of Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback, Harold Russell, Ph.D., presented research showing that Beta frequencies improved the cognitive functioning of children with ADD.

In addition, the results of a 1997 study conducted by the Departments of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Duke University Medical Center indicated binaural audio is effective in increasing cognitive performance. The study reported that “binaural auditory stimulation can affect both the task performance and changes in mood associated with the task…

Binaural beats in the Beta frequency range were associated with improvements.” (Lane, Kasian, Owens, Marsh; 1998, Binaural Auditory Beats Affect Vigilance, Performance, and Mood; Physiology & Behavior, Vol 63, No. 2)

The track called Focus on Disc 2 of the Focus set swiftly eases your mind into a highly focused Beta state. The CDs can be used while reading, studying, working, or even exercising.

The Focus 2-Disc Set may also be used for long-term mental enhancement in the prevention of mentally debilitative diseases such as Alzheimer’s Disease. Robert Cosgrove, Jr., Ph.D., M.D., an authority in biomedical engineering, noted that technologies that alter brainwave patterns “have been observed by us to be an excellent neuropathway exerciser.” Dr. Cosgrove went on to say “As such, we believe it has great potential for use in promoting optimal cerebral performance…”

Furthermore, the long-term effects on maintaining and improving cerebral performance throughout life and possibly delaying for decades the deterioration of the brain traditionally associated with aging is very exciting.” (Hutchinson, Michael; 1996; Megabrain: New Tools & Techniques For Brain Growth and Mind Expansion )

    The word “Focus” is used by people, books, articles and in the world on the average 1 Million times in the day all over, however Focus is still a misunderstood term. My dissatisfaction with the data available on the subject made me search some research journals and I was surprised by what I discovered.

    In spiritual studies, FOCUS is known as the power everyone wants to develop stronger than others. The reason is like in a hierarchy in the workplace, where the boss on top have the power to control others daily goals in the workplace, likewise in the world, the most powerful person is the one whose FOCUS is highest in intensity. This is the reason why so many esoteric sciences tell us that sages have been trying to increase focus since billion light years. Sages spend many years on their lives in dark caves trying to develop this power.

    If we take two beams of light and CONVERGE them (Inverted V), we can say the two beams are working in coherence. The point at which the two beams converge can be called as being FOCUSSED.

    If we take both the beams of light and completely DIVERGE them, they can actually become a straight line. (Open the V). Now the beams are DIVERGENT. When we are doing some activity which is leading to a result or outcome, our focus beam is in CONVERGENT Mode and when are meditating the focus beam is in DIVERGENT mode.

    So how this knowledge does helps us! In no manner whatsoever till now. Read on and it will make sense.

    Focus point always needs to have an objective or an outcome stored in it to make any difference in our lives. So to say, if we are outcome focused, we can call ourselves focused.

    We are daily focused on the outcome of the result (which is guided by positive and negative expectations), hence we are focused every minute, every day , every week on some outcome. Sadly most of these outcomes are negative outcomes.

    The good news is that whatever is the subject of our FOCUS will get converted into Reality (by our own unconscious actions). The bad news is that when the subject of FOCUS is negative (our expectation of negative is mostly stronger than the expectation of positive), we are unfortunately INTENSELY focused on the Negative Goal. When it comes to a positive goal, there is something that comes in the way.

    It has been known that if we can intensely focus on any goal, we can achieve it and unconsciously other people will help us achieve our goal. (The Universe will conspire to give us what we want). However this is not exactly true. Whenever we focus on the goals which we want so badly, we experience something called Scattering of Focus , wherein distractions and negative blocks reduce the intensity of focus and delay the achievement of goal or altogether cancels the goal. On the other hand, when we are focused on the negative outcome, we are highly focused and even if there are positive distractions (like positive inputs, positive thoughts), we continue to fear the worst (and hence FOCUS on the worst).

    You must be thinking, What can happen incase I can reduce this scattering of focus. What will happen is that not only will you achieve your goals much faster and with least struggle, but also you will start becoming unconsciously more powerful over people who has lesser intensity of focus and you will unconsciously control and guide their goals in a way that everyone will unconsciously help you achieve your goals.

    This will however happen in ways which are for the highest good of all concerned.

    When we voluntarily concentrate on any goal, the so-called executive center in the front of the brain — the prefrontal cortex is in charge. But when something distracting grabs our attention, the signal originated in the parietal cortex, toward the back of the brain. While concentration occurs at lower frequencies, Distraction occurred at higher frequencies. As distraction was developed as a survival tool, it has more power over us and therefore distraction has a stronger impact on our thinking than concentration.

    A lot of products teach us to increase focus, but very few teach us to reduce scatter. The moment we are able to reduce scatter, our focus automatically and effortlessly increases to the next level. I can guarantee you that if you put in 5% of the efforts of what you have dedicated to increasing Focus, you will radically improve your results and change your life faster than you can handle it.

    I have found the best way to reduce scatter is to use techniques taught by Astromind Research at http://www.improve-focus.com . Also you can look for various Focus CDs on the internet, however I have not had any major breakthroughs with any of these CDs.

    As a bonus in this article, I will explain what happens neurologically in the brain when we focus. As soon as we focus, all our resources are aligned with the goal. We become charged and determined to achieve the objective (unconsciously) and thereafter our unconscious or mind, immediately starts computing the various possibility in which it can take us forward towards the goal. The unconscious thereafter computes various computes various permutations/combination to make us take unconscious and conscious actions (a mixture of both) to make us achieve our objective.
