For this personal review, I have chosen the meditation music soundtracks created using Synchronicity Sonic Technology. These soundtracks have received positive reviews from the likes of the Los Angeles Times and the CBS Morning Show.
To briefly explain – Synchronicity Sonic Technology was developed by the Synchronicity Foundation and Master Charles Cannon, and utilizes holodynamics to give individuals the ability to experience a precision meditation experience every time they meditate – in other words, the technology meditates you. A quick Google search on holodynamics tells me that it is the application of modern sciences (eg quantum physics, developmental psychology and information theory) to the understanding of consciousness and the unfolding of life potential.
The technology is available in Alpha, Theta or Delta forms – each of these correlates with a specific state of consciousness. Alpha brainwave frequencies occur between 8 – 13Hz and is associated with wakeful rest – a sign of deep relaxation. Theta brainwave frequencies, between 3.5 – 7Hz, are associated with visionary, creative and intuitive levels of experience. It’s also associated with dream sleep. Delta brainwave frequencies, from 0 – 3.5HZ, are said to be the range in which meditators experience unified consciousness (unity with all life), a sense of timelessness and deep contentment and peace. They also represent the unconscious and can be found in deep dreamless sleep.
My favourite compilation is Collaborations: Mystical Strings – The Enchanted Cello. I have always been a fan of Cello music as the deep, earthy tones resonate throughout my body. This CD combines the beautiful sound of the Cello as played by internationally known cellist Tanya Anisimova with the Synchronicity Sonic Technology in the Theta range. To listen to it is to allow the sounds from the cello to take you on a journey into yourself. To hear a sample, visit the Shop.
The only word of caution: Do not drive whilst listening to this music! It really does meditate you…
