Choosing Brain Coherence

Fear and change often cause the brain to shift from focused purposefulness to frazzled jumpiness. The frontal cortex holds the brain in focus. As the dominance of the neural activity of the brain moves further back, into the emotional and memory centers, the brain begins to wander and jump, playing fears and memories without focused purpose. Task completion is replaced with idle dread and daydreaming. Fear and belittlement push our brains toward an exhausting, high speed idle chatter.

There is no illusion greater than fear. – Lao Tzu

Why exhausting? The brain burns a lot of fuel when each part of the brain is pushed into it’s own loop of unfocused chatter. When the brain is doing 100 things at once, that’s a hundred different areas of the brain that are looping on their own with no coherent purpose. The person is described as “incoherent”. Brain studies show that the coherence of the brain is “low”.

Coherence and Effectiveness

In scientific terms, a coherent brain shows brainwaves throughout the brain pulsing together. The brain functions efficiently with single purpose. We are most effective when all parts of us are working together as a concert. We are ineffective, and our efforts are often useless when each part of us works toward a different purpose.

When a person is in a state of fear, shame, shock, depression, hypervigilance, grief or so many other modes they have lost coherence. They have lost the ability to function effectively in this world.

Music helps set a rhythm in an incoherent brain. The nature of the music strongly affects not only the brain coherence but also the brain frequency. At each band of frequencies the brain accesses specific sorts of capabilities and memories. Music can bring ability to focus. It can also limit the brain’s capabilities by inducing specific brain rhythms.

For efficient and effective brain performance music would need to be selected based on the task at hand. Where we shift from one needed mode of brain function to another for specific tasks, selecting a different form of music would be optimal. The wrong music for a task might be counterproductive.

The lyrics also affect the mental and emotional states. Words can shape attitudes toward teamwork and excellence or toward rebellion, fear, or depression. The words we hear can profoundly shape our mindset and our ability to establish and maintain mental coherence.

The mind can be a finely tuned instrument and it can become a chaotic mess.

What is your objective for the future of your mind?

Creative? Cooperative? Rebellious? Kicked-Back? Intense? Critical? Freaked-out? Depressed, Uplifting, or Supportive?

Mindset and Your Intentions

Your intention has a strong effect on your future. What sort of brain functioning do you want to cultivate? You must be clear about your intention. You must shape your surroundings (including sounds) to support the brain functioning you wish to cultivate. Not just the music you listen to but also the pictures and colors on the walls and every word you hear from others and the media, and especially the words you say and thoughts you think to yourself. Keep in mind that when you say things to others, you are also saying them to your brain. It’s simple. Choose who you want to be. Then shape your mindset and your world to cultivate the best version of you that you can be for the task at hand.

But it is often not easy to get started because we are so overloaded that our brains are incoherent. What does it mean when a brain is incoherent?

Infratonic Stimulation and the Emitted Qi from Qigong Masters Effects on EEG: A Neuroscientist and Physician, Liu Guo Long MD PhD conducted some marvelous research comparing meditation, emitted healing energy (emitted qi) and the application of a very early version of the CHI Palm. It shows that brain coherence truly measures coherent thought. It probes the mysteries of accelerated healing from the hands of natural healers, and shows how the CHI Palm influences the coherence of the brain.

Here's a quote from the researcher:

Using Electroencephalograph (EEG) we found solid evidence that a qigong master can induce real physiological changes in brain waves on subjects from several feet away, and further, may help to explain the high rate of recovery from chronic degenerative diseases in groups of hospital patients under the care of Qigong masters. These studies also show that the Infratonic device can induce similar changes in brain waves.

TABLE 1. Percentage of subjects showing enhanced EEG power spectrum. The Normal Control group did not receive any treatment. The Control Sham group were treated by faked Qigong masters. The QG Master Qi group received the Qi energy emiQed from the hands of masters in Qigong state. The Infratonic Qi group received infrasound energy from the Infratonic device. The Meditation group included only Qigong masters practicing Qigong meditation.

These two control groups are showing the basal levels in alpha frequency. Group receiving emitted Qi from masters in Qigong state, light green columns. Infratonic Qi group, solid blue columns. Qigong masters in Meditation state, blue striped columns.

Why is this research useful?

You can use your Chi Palm or earlier Infratonic device to bring greater coherence to your brain. Here’s a way to become clear and focused enough to start focusing your mindset:

When the CHI Palm on Balance is applied anywhere on the body, especially over the heart, the whole brain and nervous system calms. Much of it’s frazzled localized activity (busy brain) calms down and comes into coherence in alpha (calm clarity). This reduces consumption of brain fuel and increases the ability to focus the mind. The Acute setting probably brings more of the insight and transformation because it includes gamma, the frequencies of the heart, but in the above experiment, a signal close to our current Balance signal was used.

You can use this time of calm clarity to focus your intention on what attributes you want your mind to have, and begin reorganizing the world around you to support the mental world you want to cultivate.

A systems engineer by training, he moved early in his career from efficient use of fossil fuel energy to efficient use of human energy. Human consciousness is severely crippled in most all of us compared to the full potentials of consciousness so Richard has made studying and optimizing human consciousness into a 30 year career choice.
