Something New, Something Different
Dear Hemi-Sync® User,
…hmmm, that sounds a little bit boring and impersonal. Moreover, it understates what we’re doing here, right? After all, we’re building a community of people who are willing to reconsider who they are and who they take themselves to be. This involves being willing to set aside limiting beliefs, directly facing fears and becoming comfortable with the unknown. That takes courage (and not a little bit, at that). I guess you could liken it to the early explorers who were sailing to unknown lands (without the genocide, of course). You guys good with “Explorers”? Cool, let’s go with that.
There’s a lot going on at Hemi-Sync® this month. On the 13th, we released Deep Connection: A Meditation for Two with the brilliant, Tim Freke. This is the first partner meditation we have produced in a long time and continues our recent effort to provide users with exercises that are directly applicable to their daily lives. This album mirrors what Tim does in his workshops (highly recommended btw). First, users are introduced to the Deep Awake state, which is a state of being marked by a sense of deep knowing, of quiet, calm confidence and joy, unmediated by concepts. Various wisdom traditions have different names for this condition, such as “Spirit,” “Atman” or “Buddha-Nature.”
An underappreciated aspect of this experience is that it can be both individual, as well as shared. After all, we are both individuals and All-One. The second part of the exercise invites the listeners to establish a connection with each other through eye gazing. While this may be uncomfortable at first (perhaps intensely so depending on whom you’re doing it with) before long you begin to see the other person as they really are (and vice versa). The result is to experience yourself as Being itself, and to see Being looking back at you. From this place, we are able to relate authentically, without the veils of the ego personality, and realize how rare this experience typically is in our lives, even with those whom we many consider to be close.
On a related note, Tim and I also recorded a podcast. This is my longest one yet, so we created a helpful table of contents. The bit about the Hemi-Sync® exercise ends around the 40 minute mark. To understand why no Bible Belt locations were included on Tim’s recent US stand-up philosophy tour, skip to the 1:10:00 mark. As a natural introvert, I was exhausted after the 90 minutes were complete and promptly isolated myself for several days.
I was fortunate to be able to attend the Remote Viewing I program with Joe McMoneagle at The Monroe Institute last week. For me, it re-affirmed the understanding of consciousness not being limited by space or time. Some of you may also enjoy watching the new documentary film, Third Eye Spies. However, I’m told that 80% of the remote viewing research took place after 1982 (the film primarily handles subject matter up to that date).
In other news, we are working on curating and producing more blog content. If you would like to contribute a post, or know someone who would, please let us know. It generally needs to relate to one of our main application areas of meditation, relaxation, sleep, concentration, manifestation and wellness. For example, here is a recent article about sound & meditation.
Lastly, we are currently QC’ing the subscription version of our app, Hemi-Sync® Unlimited, which I hope to be writing more about in next month’s letter.
Getting It Out There
For a long while, I feel like we’ve been hanging out alongside Route 29 in Lovington, VA, toiling away in relative anonymity as one of the world’s best kept secrets. Only those “in the know” were aware of us. While it’s kind of cool to have our own little club, it’s also time to start letting everyone know we’re here. Today, many of the world’s problems seem intractable or unsolvable, and they very well may be from a conventional perspective. It is only from expanded states of consciousness that the solutions may come into view, that we may come to see that we aren’t just separate “meat bags” pitted against each other in senseless, endless competition for material resources and ideological supremacy. I firmly believe that the world would be a better place if more people we’re using Hemi-Sync®. Let’s start making it happen. If you found this email to be useful, or even entertaining, please forward it to a friend.
Let’s Keep Meeting Like This?
Well, I guess that’s probably enough for this first letter. I’ll try to start doing this more often (at least once per month). Unless, of course, this triggers a massive number of unsubscribes, in which case I will have more time for my hobbies. Speaking of which, the Chairman is weary now, and in need of a cocktail.
See you in Home or along the way,
