But first I want to ask you…
What level of life energy do you feel right now?
On a scale from 1 to 10, with 10 being absolutely full of vitality and inner peace, how do you feel at this exact moment? If you feel that you could be living life more fully, with more vitality and energy, it’s time to enhance your life, and you know it.
You can positively reduce your stress quickly, and experience greater vitality and pleasure at the same time!
Do you want to feel happier and more peaceful?
People who do regular meditative practices tend to be happier, more peaceful and more optimistic than those who do not. Not only that, they tend to have less fears, anxiety, frustration and sadness. When you eliminate emotions that weigh you down, you can more easily manage the ups and downs of daily life…relationships and work.
Did you know that people who do meditative practices create lots of pleasure brain chemicals—the ones that make you feel happy?
Do you want to boost your mental abilities?
People who regularly practice some form of deep meditative practice also tend to have sharper minds and problem-solving abilities than those who don’t train their minds. They generally benefit from greater mental clarity, concentration abilities and creativity.
Do you want to improve your health and even delay the aging process?
It’s no secret that when you reduce stress at a deep enough level, you change your physiology. People who know how to quiet their minds tend to be healthier and even age differently. Scientists have proven that in profound states of mind and body relaxation, you produce less hormones that speed up aging!
The key is to QUIET YOUR MIND.
I would say it largely comes down to lack of awareness…simply not knowing the choices that are available to you. In our busy modern society, we are not taught about all the options we have to use our mind powers.
Many people have the false belief that the only way to experience the benefits of meditation is to actually “meditate.” A common misconception is that you need to sit in a certain position, repeat a mantra and do this for years before you can experience the positive benefits.
And, many who have tried “meditation” say that it feels like a chore and even frustrating, and they give up.
Over the eons, shamans have passed down an ancient meditative-type practice that has stood the test of time. It’s called shamanic journeying. Thousands of people worldwide have practiced shamanic journeying to accelerate their mental, emotional and spiritual growth. You can too.
The shamanic journey takes you into a deep meditative state but it is not a “meditation.”
1. Unlike typical meditations, journeying is not an end result, but rather a bridge to higher levels of consciousness. Shamans believe it’s not enough to just reach a deep meditative state, we need cross that bridge and be active participants while we are in deeper mind states. We need to be active not passive while we access our mind powers.
Shamanic journeys fulfill a purpose. Before you start a journey, you focus on a specific question or issue that you want insights on or help with. In other words, you have a purpose when you journey.
2. Journeying is also different from “meditation” because it does not need to be a sedentary practice. You can learn how to enter a deeper mind state while you walk, run and even in a noisy environment.
Though the main purpose of journeying is to gain insights, answers and help about your life, you ALSO gain many physical and emotional benefits at the same time.
Journeying can change your life in ways that you can not imagine today.
Skeptical? I don’t blame you. Don’t take my word for it. You can prove it to yourself!
And, that’s what I suggest you do—try it. I created an audio that guides you step-by-step through a shamanic journey. It’s called The Journey. Click here to get started today. Experience it for yourself today.
Read on to learn what scientific research proves about the mental, emotional and physical benefits from regular meditative practices… And, discover what shamans teach about mind powers.
Hello! My name is Mary Rivas and I’d like to briefly tell you my story.
Over twenty years ago, I was enrolled in a Ph.D clinical psychology program at the Chicago Medical School where I studied psychosomatic medicine. I was first led to study psychology because I was fascinated with learning about the powers of the subconscious mind and its ability to heal the body.
At that time, I hadn’t yet discovered how the mind could radically affect all aspects of life—not just health. I hadn’t yet realized how the mind, when used in a certain way, could affect finances, business success, relationships and even spiritual growth!
Well to get back to my story, I became disappointed with what I was learning in the psychology program and took a leave of absence from graduate school. I continued my studies, but this time I was inspired to dig deeper and learn about mind powers outside of psychology. I began studying with shamans and what I discovered about mind powers shocked me.
Ancient wisdom opened up a new door for me that psychology did not.
Over the years, I discovered that shamanism holds the most powerful knowledge about mind powers. What I learned from this ancient knowledge is not taught in school!
Shamanism is ancient knowledge that predates all philosophies. It teaches that every thing is interconnected by a web of energy. And. there is no separation between the spirit and physical world. In other words, there is no separation between mind and matter.
I’ll never forgot the day I did my first shamanic journey!
A shaman, who was formerly a medical doctor in Russia, guided me and a group of other students into a deep meditative state. He told us to be open to what our “other mind” would reveal. We were also told to have a purpose for our “journey.” I focused on questions about my work because at that time I felt unhappy about that aspect of my life.
I was a bit skeptical about what kind of success I would have, but I was willing to try it.
As I entered a state of deep relaxation, images began appearing…it was like I was seeing a movie play with my eyes closed! It was very much like a dream, but I was awake during the dream. I was shocked because I never had had any success before with being able to quiet my constant mind chatter. I had never been able to see anything with my eyes closed.
At the end of my journey, I felt a profound sense of peace and excitement about my life. I wasn’t sure why. I just got the feeling that the images I saw in my shamanic journey were a message to me about how my life was going to change…and I deeply wanted big changes in my life! As it turns out, I did experience the big lifestyle changes that my inner mind hinted about. I resigned from my corporate position, moved out of the city, and to an island to work in a completely different path.
My mission is to teach basic shamanic knowledge and ancient wisdom about mind powers to anyone who truly wants to grow emotionally, psychologically and spiritually.
In just a minute, I’ll share scientific research findings on the side-benefits of doing regular deep-meditative practices. But first, I want to explain important basics about how the mind works.
The mind can be described by levels of brain frequency. Every second of your life, nerve cells in your brain generate electrical patterns that change depending on your state of mind—your thoughts and emotions. Scientists refer to these electrical frequencies as brain wave patterns.
In biofeedback, brain wave patterns are categorized into four states or levels: Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta.
As our mind quiets down–or slows down, it starts to produce slower brain wave activity, such as Alpha and Theta. When your brain wave activity slows down, you access capabilities of the mind that you normally don’t use.
In Beta, the brain frequency is between 14-21 pulsations per second.
People spend most of their waking life in Beta. This mind state is associated with constant mind chatter. Have you ever tried to quiet your mind but found that it was impossible to stop thoughts from zooming in from every direction? Or, maybe you’ve had the experience of not being able to remember an answer when you felt tense? That was Beta.
Research has shown that this state is associated with stress-related symptoms such as anxiety, poor sleep and depression. When we’re in Beta, we’re at our poorest potential for learning and healing. Also, our ability to reach creative solutions and breakthroughs is at its weakest in this state.
Given the research, it should be no surprise that if you spend all your waking hours in Beta, you’ll be at a great disadvantage. Your ability to create the life you desire is weakened.
In Alpha, your brain frequency slows down to 7-14 pulsations per second — about half that of Beta.
Alpha is often experienced when we are in a very relaxed state. In states of Alpha, you have a greater potential for creative breakthroughs, insights, and learning.
What takes years to learn in Beta, for example, can take just months in Alpha.
People most commonly experience Alpha when they are close to falling asleep and during meditative type practices. You can also access an Alpha state while spending time alone in nature.
In Theta, your brainwaves slow down further to 4-7 cycles per second.
People can experience Theta during meditative-type practice or even during fasting. Also, you can access this powerful state while being in nature, such as a forest or desert, for extended periods of time.
In Theta, the mind is more open to suggestion. This means you can be more effective in creating the results you want in your life. Theta is associated with enhanced creativity, intuitive abilities, mental clarity and increased abilities to concentrate. Here, you can learn things that you never thought were possible.
Dr. Thomas Budzynski, a researcher in the field of neuroscience has reported that self-defeating filters of the “left brain” are bypassed in Theta, and that people can more easily make positive changes in beliefs or habits.
Dr. Elmer Green, a biofeedback pioneer, has reported increased mental clarity, intelligence, and intuition as well as positive changes in mental and emotional health during deeper mind states, such as Theta.
In Theta, the brain also produces more levels of many beneficial brain chemicals, such as pleasure-causing endorphins. What’s the result of that? Stress melts away, aging slows down and you gain a sense of total well-being.
In Delta, the brain frequency is between 1/2 to 4 pulsations per second.
When your mind slows down even further, you enter Delta, a state that is extremely powerful. Few people can consciously use this mind state because when most people enter Delta, they fall asleep.
At the Delta level, the body releases anti-aging hormones, such as human growth hormone (HGH), and boosts the immune system. As we get older, we produce less HGH, which results in many aging symptoms including loss of stamina, sagging skin, reduced memory and diseases associated with aging. We can delay the aging process when we use our minds in a certain way.
Delta is a powerful mind state available to all but few have been able to consciously tap into it.
For eons, shamans, mystics and sages have known of the powers of deeper mind states—long before scientists discovered mind training. Certain Native American wise elders, such as Sitting Bull, and Apache scouts, such as Geronimo, used deeper mind states for miraculous healings, to communicate with plants and time travel.
Ancient wisdom teaches that Delta is our link to God, to Infinite Intelligence…
You might think it sounds like science-fiction but our minds are far more powerful that most of us can imagine.
Here’s the main point about the four mind states.
When you live all of your waking hours in the state of Beta, life will feel empty and your abilities on every level are limited. As you access deeper mind states, such as Theta, you tap hidden mind powers. You can take a leap in your abilities to use your mind to its fullest potential and to heal emotionally and physically. And, you can have greater spiritual growth. You access that inner voice that’s always there to help you in infinite ways.
Each time you experience deep meditative states, your physical body undergoes transformation. Thousands of scientists have reported numerous health benefits from regular meditative practices.
Vincent Giampapa, M.D. and vice president of the American Society of Anti-Aging Medicine, has found that placing a listener in the Alpha, Theta, and Delta brain wave patterns dramatically affects production of three important hormones related to both increased longevity and physical well-being: Cortisol, DHEA, and melatonin.
DHEA levels are a key determinant of physiological age and resistance to disease. When DHEA levels are low, you’re more susceptible to aging and disease. You want to have greater levels of DHEA to combat the harmful effects of stress.
Melatonin is a hormone that helps to create restful sleep. Since during sleep many important rejuvenating substances are created in the brain, the inability to sleep soundly can greatly speed up the aging process..
By now, you probably can appreciate how quieting your mind can help improve your health, balance your emotions, boost your mental abilities and strengthen your spiritual foundation.
Again, you do not need to “meditate” to gain all the benefits described above. Personally, I prefer to not use the term “meditation” because common meditation practices are limiting. For one, they teach people to be passive. You can’t have true freedom when you just sit back and passively wait for what you want in life. You need to actively participate in life on all levels.
How long does it take to experience the benefits?
Some people report gaining amazing insights the first time they do a shamanic journey. Everyone, at a minimum, experiences deep states of mind and body relaxation in the beginning. The reason for quick results is that you don’t have to learn any complex process or spend months or even weeks in training.
The Journey guides you step by step all the way.
In the first half of the audio, you’ll be guided to deeply relax your body and mind. In the second half, you learn to do the active meditative practice.
I know you might be asking yourself..“Is this going to be a chore where I need to force myself to do it?”
Journeying is not boring or difficult. On the contrary, it’s effortless. You’ll eagerly look forward to journeying. Why? Because the experience is so deeply relaxing and energizing and you feel good afterwards. The pleasurable effects can linger for hours.
Skeptical? I understand. You can prove it to yourself today—right now. The benefits are real. That’s why I created The Journey to guide you step by step–from the beginning to end. Once you listen to it, you’ll experience a state of total relaxation and much more.
We suggest that in the beginning that you practice the full journey each day, which is nearly 40 minutes. Then, later when you’ve practiced enough and can journey without the audio, you can do the shorter version when you want.
You’ll learn how to journey even when you’re walking on a noisy street!
In deeper mind states, your mind is more receptive to ideas that you focus on. That means you need to be very vigilant as to what you focus on when you’re in deep meditative states. Since the filters of your Beta mind are bypassed in meditative-states, what you focus on expands. So it’s especially important that you focus on ideas that give you joy and lift your spirit.
Did you know that when you watch movies, television programs or listen to certain types of music, your mind enters Alpha? That’s why television and movies can be so effective in influencing people’s behavior on a mass level. Think twice before you watch violent and fear-based movies and news.
Always be aware about what you focus on—especially when you’re in deeper mind states.
The Journey does not use subliminal messages for a good reason.
Since this is an active form of meditative practice, you use your own affirmations and focus on what you are inspired to during deep meditative states. Again, you are an active participant, not passive when you practice journeying.
You can help to manifest inspired goals when you journey. Why? When you are in deep meditative states, your thoughts go directly to your sub-conscious mind and create changes at a deep level.
Shamanic journeying has been passed down over the eons and has stood the test of time. People from all walks of life have journeyed—priests, rabbis, atheists, scientists, experienced meditators as well as newbies.
I’ll conclude by summarizing the many real benefits of this step-by step guided audio:
AND, when you order The Journey, you’ll receive a gift to help you get the most out of your journeys!
*how your two minds work and why you have limiting thoughts
*how to interpret messages and insights that you receive during journeying
*the power of your imagination and the power of asking questions
*what you need to know to journey without the audio—while you walk down a street or are in a noisy environment
P.S.: Remember, you’ll receive the free bonus gift to get the absolute most out of your shamanic journeys–whether you order the hard copy CD or the digital download.
