Title: Strange sensation
Post by: nzakeral on March 27, 2012, 05:27:58 am
Hi,

I'm a few days from finishing level 1 and I'd like to share something that has been happening to me. Every day multiple times per day I am experiencing an intense heat sensation in my middle chest area..

Hi Nzakeral,

I can't really comment on the energy/heat sensation you've been experiencing without going into the area of blind speculation. I don't believe anyone other than yourself can give you a definitive explanation. And that's the challenge...

It's all too common that when face with nebulous and vague conditions that impact our life, that we scramble for an outside explanation, or look to an "authority" to define the problem for us. The mainframe of society does not engender self-trust, and as a result of our inner distrust, we have a tendency to sometimes mistrust everything around us, looking for something to "blame".

I'm going to say flat out that I don't believe energy/heat sensations felt in the body causes relationships to "fall apart" in a person's life, and that the answer to your experience can be found in a close examination of your personal beliefs and behavior. But to "get" that answer, you need to trust yourself.

I hope this helps,

Robert

Hello Nazkeral,
You are very welcome to the forum.
Initially I didn't respond to your post as I wanted time to think. I have a few suggestions to make - they work for me, and I have no reason to believe they won't for you. Also my writing this down will clarify (simplify) things for me, and if it also brings you to a resolution, well, two of us have been served.

Bear in mind I am just a fellow human being. Writing out of a desire to help us all one step further along the path so we can all walk in warmth and sunlight. I am not an expert, just a BrainEv user, who has benefitted exponentially from the entrainment, so note also that I am very, very positively biased.

I am going to address your 'problem' from three perspectives:
1) finding tangled wires and sending in a qualified electrician (you, the Human) to prune out the old and faulty circuits that are making you run 20 times around the track instead of direct from A to B.
2) A Chimp and Human metaphor to help you clearly see when you (the Human) are in control, and when your inner Chimp is running riot and thereby muddying the waters and putting both you and Chimp in a spin.
3) A BrainEv perspective which translates faulty wiring and Chimp/Human behaviour into brainwave frequencies. Faulty wiring and Chimp antics produce beta-frazzle. If you look at EEG readings of beta-frazzle (my expression to describe me at my most ineffective), you will see rapid high amplitude, high frequency scribblings much like a seismograph recording a severe earthquake. BrainEv introduces a whole symphony of frequencies across 6 months, and I have found these to be healing - my beta frazzle is reduced to minor sporadic outbursts - exceedingly rare.

OK. If you agree to join me lets look at the Chimp/Human metaphor first. The metaphor isn't mine. It comes from a book by psychiatrist Dr Steve Peters called "The Chimp Paradox: the mind management programme for confidence, success and happiness".

The Chimp: Peters encourages us to see the chimp just as they live in the jungle. Loud, raucous, domineering, and they travel in groups. To survive they need to be part of the troupe - any threat of exclusion gets the Chimp in total beta-frazzle, i.e. panic-mode, fight to survive. So the Chimp is not an intellectual. He's a see-the-danger-and-run-away kind of guy = survival, but through brutish means. Now think of a troupe of chimps high in the jungle canopy, and one spots a jaguar far below on the forest floor. What happens? Shouting, screaming, rushing to and fro, threatening, panicking, but lots and lots of uncoordinated thoughts and physical activity. Agreed? So the function of the Chimp is to see threats and alert us to them - Chimps are there to help. However they are NOT good problem-solvers (fortunately we have a Human to do the thinking for us). Also bear in mind a Chimp is 5x stronger than a Human, so it is easy for the Chimp to dominate the Human.

The Human: The Human is a remarkable kind of guy. He's a thinker, an analyst, a genuine problem-solver. He is creative, a fast learner, skilled, but his critical, analytical thinking takes 5 times longer than the Chimp's simplistic thinking, so the Chimp always arrives at a solution faster (often an inadequate solution = avoid it, so hide, run away or attack being three favorite strategies). Given the right tools Human can achieve anything. The right tools are critical to Human's performance. If he has been messed up by unskilled electricians (his inner Chimp or members of his troupe) his wiring is going to be extremely haphazard and ineffective. Some idiot (perhaps even the Chimp) may have installed software that is so full of bugs that even when Human is using his intelligence, he consistently arrives at wrong conclusions. The Human often doesn't distinguish between Human behaviour and Chimp behaviour: however the Human is extremely intelligent, and once he sees the Chimp in action, this metaphor becomes a vital tool in harnessing the Chimp, soothing him down, and thus allowing the Human to take over the important, executive thinking and problem-solving. The Human is grateful to the Chimp for pointing out that there is a jaguar on the forest floor, but the Human knows that jaguars cannot fly, and nor do they roam about on the canopy, so really the jaguar - while it is on the ground far from the chimp - poses NO threat.

Nzakeral, if this Chimp Human metaphor speaks to you - then do not delay, go and buy the book. It is funny, and I found it made total sense of the more unhelpful aspects of my behaviour and others!!!! So this is your first tool on the road to freedom. You want to put your Chimp on 'calm', and start to utilise the mental giant of your Human. The jaguar (your over-heating issue) does not affect your ability to relate to other people (as Robert has already pointed out), but your Chimp makes cognitive thinking errors, and seems to be running your show, jaguar/over-heating + women = no win. Change that faulty wiring!!!


As your Human is very smart, you need to supply real data - the new software program to replace all that loopy wiring the Chimp is currently using - to your detriment. The software you require is knowledge (not superstition!). So get yourself checked out by a doctor. What is this over-heating syndrome? What causes it? Why you? What treatment and cures? Get a name for it. ..... Imagine if in a few days, when you have ripped the faulty Chimp wiring, and got a proper 'concept' of what this over-heating vasilo-dilator thing-y is (= installed an appropriate software program to run pertaining to over-heating), your Human can say perhaps something on the lines of...."I know this X (over-heating) phenomenon is pretty special. It alerts me to unique parts of my inner-being. When I over-heat I know I am quite safe, but my system is trying to tell me something. I am fascinated to find out what X is telling me. I will work with it, a team, me and my body in total cooperation. Best of all, I know that when I over-heat I am no longer run by my Chimp (who used to run scary fantasy scenarios all with a bad ending). Now my Human recognises X as my personal signature alarm, and I can behave in a manner which best serves my long-term plans even while I over-heat!"

Wiring Issue.
I am on BrainEv round 2 (level 4) and it is just a fabulous the second time round. I spent most of my life in a state of beta-frazzle prior to BrainEv. Literally my Chimp was standing on the highest branches screaming at me, warning me of every possible - and impossible - danger. In fact my Chimp was so loud that I couldn't hear my Human. BrainEv inputted other brainwave frequencies and gave my poor brain an urgently needed taste of other brainstates beyond anxiety, worry and fear.

At this point I know that my brain is working better and more effectively. I seem to be harnessing my right brain much more these days. So I like to think in pictures - which is why the metaphore stuff serves me so well. One picture really is worth a thousand words. To drive the faulty wiring metaphore home, I went onto Google images and searched under 'tangled wires'. Have a look. You will be delighted at the nightmare wiring scenarios that brilliant photographers and passing tourists have posted for our pure 'tangled wires' oogling pleasure. I printed a few out. When my Chimp starts screeching, I look at that maze of loops going nowhere, and LISTEN CAREFULLY TO EXACTLY WHAT MY CHIMP IS TELLING ME. I write it down. Most of what my Chimp says is inaccurate stuff. My Chimp is doing a great job of spotting the problem and sending up red flags. But, honestly, I now see the solutions my Chimp provides are not in my highest interests.

[At this point you can switch straight to your two posts above. What is your Chimp saying? I don't want to interpret this for you (this is your Human's task), however just to get the ball rolling, here is a start. The Chimp gets extremely agitated when you over-heat. Pure panic mode. You Chimp informs you - based on past experience (which has also been misinterpreted) - that when you over-heat around women, sisters and friends, they vamoose. Your Chimp concludes that this over-heating business is lethal to your pulling power around women. One simple Chimp solution: kill the over-heating. Now. Chimp is convinced that stopping over-heating will solve everything.

Fortunately, if you read between the lines of your posts, the Human is at work too. It wants to help solve the over-heating riddle but the software is not there to deliver the vital stats required to make an intelligent problem-solving strategy. Your Human is using the few resources on hand to make life better for you. Buying and using BrainEv is one example (yes, you need that brainwave-enhancement software package for whole-brain thinking). Posting on the forum is another Human attempt to solve a tricky problem (yes, you may get ideas here from others, which also puts missing pieces of software into the puzzle).

However your Chimp is sooooooo loud. It is in such a flap. Simplistic as it is, remember the purpose of the Chimp is just to save you from danger by hiding, running or attacking - just a front-line defence. There is no long-term Human strategy here. Spot the problem and create total havoc until the jaguar is gone. My take on your number analogy is this is Chimp logic. Why? The Chimp noticed that over-heating (which appears to be a big threat to survival) has occurred at 11.10. A snap Chimp decision. Over-heating and the numbers 10 and 11 are connected. Dammit they are. Now Chimp goes a clever mile further, it warns you everytime a 1 or a 0 are on the clock. Beware of over-heating at 1 o'clock, one minute past one, one minute past two. Just imagine what could happen at 11.11????? Total spontaneous combusion???? You had better go and kill the clock!!! Then it can't show the digits 11.11, or should that be 10.10? ]

This may appear as if I am ridiculing you, Nzakeral. Believe me, I'm not. I am speaking from pure experience. Once I read this book I could see the Chimp in action in other people. My daughter is stressed by exams and future career decisions.... it is amazing to observe how her Chimp is very very concerned about her survival in this situation. My mother has Alzheimers and I regularly get thumped about by her Chimp. The real shift began when I started to spot my Chimp - and simultaneously realise I AM NOT THAT CHIMP. I can choose to calm the Chimp, see what danger it is alerting me to, reason with my Chimp, and then use my Human brain to plot a reasonable course of action based on reliable, appropriate software.

The Finale. BrainEv.
As  a user I can clearly state that BrainEv has been pivotal in turning down the volume of the Chimp screeching - or beta-frazzle. I used to be plagued by insomnia. Sleep time became a special time when my Chimp pulled every possible fear and anxiety out of its big box of Fear toys. Nowadays I sleep much more. And when I don't sleep, there is no beta-frazzle (crazy-making brainwave frequencies that focus on the problem again and again - yes there is a problem, lots of problems BUT never calmly focusing on a solution). Now I seem to be awake, doze, wake, doze and I remember my thoughts and dreams..... and you know what, I feel whole-brained. Suddenly I can hear and understand what my sub/unconscious has stored within. I can add a little alpha (the brainwave frequencies we produce between wake and sleep) and make links, I am filling in bits of the jogsaw puzzle. When I actually listen to myself (the Chimp, the Human and just me) I find all sorts of body sensations (not over-heating yet, but real pain, twitches, fear-pain etc) and I release them by EFT tapping. I listen and accept, I listen more and hear/accept. And eventually I get to the core of it - never anything upsetting or dramatic as our Chimp would have us believe - and then I sleep  - I really sleep well.

A long, long post.
If it speaks to you go and get "Chimp Paradox". Read it (it really is fun and well written). You could order "Gamma Healing" which is were I found the tapping technique to rid myself of emotional and physical energy that no longer served (cutting out the old wiring circuits). The same book gives a method for imprinting new beliefs - the software your Human needs. As does Chimp book. And listen to BrainEv..... see it as a vast symphony playing, habituating your brain to every possible nuance of brainwave frequency. I only played one CD, the Beta-Frazzle one. My reperatoire of available actions were just three: hide, flee or attack. But the Human knows life is richer than that by far. There are many many solutions to every challenge, and exploring those solutions becomes so fascinating, so rewarding, so empowering...... yes, well I could go on for ever. But I won't.

Now the decision is yours. What are you going to do to make friends with and harness the language of over-heating (you need a Human brain and new software for that)? And will you let BrainEv open the doors to a symphony of sounds and music genres rather than just listening to a couple of outdated CSs? And how about listening to your Chimp, understanding him (but recognise his very limited intellectual powers), but free up your Human, for there lies a multitude of joy, fun and adventure in putting all those scattered bits of the puzzle that is your life into one masterpiece?

I wish you an amazing journey, a real round-the-world, inter-galactic trip. You will love it. Buy the Chimp Paradox and fasten your seat belt - remember you need ear plugs to listen to BrainEv once a day when you are calm (do not do this in a Beta-Frazzle mind-state!). Bon voyage, Pure Bliss

Thanks for the thorough reply I shall take that on board ;)

Were you serious about going to see a Doctor? I haven't considered going because I thought It would be out of their area of expertise.. I can't even find any info online about this lol.
Title: Re: Heat sensation in chest area
Post by: Pure Bliss on March 29, 2012, 07:47:35 am
Hello again Nzakeral,

Of course I'm serious about going to a doctor, though ultimately it is your choice where you access the information so your Chimp stops terrifying you everytime this sensation occurs. The point of going to a doctor is to determine whether this is physiological, (so do you treat it or learn to live with it), or is it 'all in the head' (so do you treat it or learn to live with it). View your trip to the doctor as a data collection exercise.

As I see it, you struggle with this phenomenon because you don't understand it. Not understanding causes you to fear it. Fearing it creates resistance. And the whole thing becomes a panic scenario made all the worse because the Chimp sets up such a clamour in your head that the Human cannot reason. To reason your Human needs INFORMATION, first and foremost. Right now it has no data to work on, so it cannot explain the phenomenon, so it obeys the Chimp, who as a non-thinker wants away from the whole problem. But we all know that running away from problems doesn't solve them, don't we?

Another line of inquiry (to give your Human more data) would be to 'stay with the phenomenon' next time it occurs. If it happens during BrainEv, just OBSERVE everything as it unfolds. Get data. Where does it start? Is it more intense at the beginning, the middle, the end? Where exactly are the sensations? Where do you feel the sensations? When you let go of panic and resistance, what happens? The object of this exercise is to separate yourself from all the panic conclusions the Chimp has fed you (you are NOT a CHIMP). The Chimp is a worst-case-scenario kind of guy - he doesn't deal in good outcomes. Your Human brain is much smarter. Given adequate data he can start to calm the Chimp by feeding it real facts.

 BrainEv is one piece of the puzzle. Robert has already told you that this phenomenon doesn't play a role in attracting women or having friendships, another piece for your Human to work with. You have had quite a few 'episodes' and survived them all, so it looks as if they aren't lethal, a third piece of the puzzle already. The doctor may supply more pieces. Calm observation will allow you to look the beast in the eye - what if you are running away from an ant? I wish you a speedy and life-affirming outcome to this masterpiece which is your life.

Here is to perfect outcomes for you! Pure Bliss

Ahhh, Nick and Robert!

Where would I be without you guys? Really! Writing these posts does take ages, and if I wrote into a void I would soon give up and just put it in my journal.

I got the idea of "missing data" from Eureka! Enigma. If data is missing we don't have enough real data to be effective at anything. So missing data accounts for failure more than any of us is ever aware.

The Chimp Paradox was written by a genius. There is such a wealth of good advice in there. I was wowed by his page on setting boundaries. Sadly I have kept my boundaries too open (missing data was that chimps from maurauding troupes are NOT loyal to my band, but serve their own), and have found myself violated often enough. Ever heard of the importance of saying a clear 'No', and meaning it? Chimp book supplied some missing data on boundaries that will make all the difference to me. Now I just have to implement it.

I resolved a real Chimp-think+boundary problem. Mum was in holy war with me over a conversation that literally never took place. She was furious. Using the Chimp book data I could observe my own Chimp getting upset, feeling aggrieved at her false claims, getting hurt, getting angry, and above all..... losing 90% of my energy to this nonsense. No more. I set a boundary. I told her - calmly - I was not prepared to fight over something that had not happened. Full stop. Within 30 mins she was absolutely normal. She accepted my boundary/limit. Otherwise I would have had to put up with aggression and sulking for days - plus she would have obsessed long enough to make the ficticious event real.

As always, thank you for responding. It validates my personal effort to make progress in the right direction. Wish you both exponential progress too..... hugs, Pure Bliss

nzakeral, hello.
While I do not discount anything that has been said thus far, I seem to see a point that has been overlooked.

Do you know anything about the chakra system? You say the heat begins in the heart area and spreads from there. You also, instinctively or not, relate it to your relationships. The heart chakra  I am thinking it could be caused by a difficulty in the heart chakra area. I recall Pure Bliss wrote about how to cleanse and charge chakras in another post on the forum. You might want to find that and try it as well.

Hi All, Pure Bliss,

As always, you never cease to amaze me Pure Bliss, its always alot of interest and intrigue on the stuff you post, here in the forum.  I believe, alot of people could learn to understand by your experience from the BrainEv. For me, its one step at a time. I'm not in a hurry, but seek calmness by being patient.. 

Take care...

Yep I know all about the Chakra system, the only forms of balancing I have tried is by using binaural beats.

Hi Nzakeral,

Just to put your mind at ease, Ennora produces effective and astounding mp3s. I happen to know the two guys who make the products, Peter and Mark, and they're just a couple of very smart men who didn't like what was currently available at the time in audio entrainment on the internet, so after a lot of hard work and a few years of research, they designed their own.

I use their products on a regular basis, and it's been a wonderful compliment to my BrainEv experience.

Nice to hear, I have purchased all of their binaural beats. I haven't been using any lately since I read to not to use other forms of audio entrainment while on the BrainEV program. Nice to see you got some results combining the two ;)

Two more lvl 1 sessions and I'll be onto lvl 2 yay. I have noticed some positive effects from lvl 1, in the beginning my mind would start wandering half way through and I was finding it hard to stay focused and would get really tired. Now I can easily finish the 30 minutes and actually want to keep going! Time goes so fast during it now too last night it felt like all of 5mins had passed. ;)

Hi Nzakeral,
Way to go. This is fabulous. I called that sensation 'losing time' when it happened to me. Shows you are entraining just fine. Good for you. Enjoy level 2 - a totally different soundscape, with elements to distract you. Have you watched the introductory video for each level? If not, do so because they are really informative.
Bon voyage in level 2, Pure Bliss

Hi Nzakeral,
Well done. You are staying put with it. No point of making it your enemy. You need to get to a point of acceptance, letting it be, letting this happen, let it manifest. Just allow it to come and when it does, listen carefully to what it says.
So this makes you hot. When you take off your shirt to cool down, what happens next? Do you cool down? Is it being out of control to this phenomenon that scares you? What is so scary about getting too hot for unknown reasons?
So you feel like a puppet. What is wrong or right with being a puppet? Lots of us feel puppet-like from time to time. I am not in control of all my outcomes (even critically important ones to me like selling our house and becoming financially free - just my perception of what is important and I have little control over). How do you look, feel and act when you are insane? Most of us are quite a bit insane most of the time - for evidence just look at this forum, plenty of people, especially me, who aren't always acting in their own best interests.

I want to congratulate you. I think you have come a long, long way and it has only been, what? 3 days? Well done, Nzakeral. You are taking vital steps towards accepting yourself. Facing what is true and what isn't true. And what's the harm in a little overheating? Maybe, in time, you will come to see it as your special friend and guide, alerting you to when it is time to take a time out to sort fact from fear. Good for you.

I wish you a very special day in getting to know your real self. Congratulations, you have good reason to be proud.

P.S. Millions of women the world over experience hot flashes during menopause. None of them die because of it. Some resist like mad and get all het up about it. Others accept this a part of their process and just live with it. Night sweats and up-wellings of heat at any moment just are, for some people. At the end of the day, it is but a choice. Are we going to drive ourselves insane about something we cannot control? Or are we going to get on with life while having night sweats and hot flashes during the day?

P.P.S. Have you seen a doctor yet? Find out if there is a physiological cause. Then you will KNOW. It's things we don't know about and thus we fear that has Chimps screeching from the canopy.

Again congratulations. You have lived through two more episodes and are getting more curious and less afraid. Good for you!!!!

Here's to feeling cool even when you are scorching hot inside! Hugs, Pure Bliss

Nzakeral,

I have to say I pretty much agree with you about doctors, and have little faith in most of them. Alternatively, do you have access to a fully licensed and accredited acupuncturist? Again, you still need to be careful about choosing who you will see, making sure of their training and such, but if you find one I really think it would help, whether it is physical or energetic.

 Nzakeral,
I admire your tenacity. You will understand this.

Is it my physical heart? is it my heart chakra? Am i possessed by an angel? A demon? Is it coming from another person like a soul connection? am I just crazy ? and well.. I can't get any answers to any of these theories so I'm left confused.

One question: Why do you believe you can't get answers to these questions?
On confusion. I also experience confusion. My experience of confusion is when we hold two opposing beliefs (neither of which are totally conscious so just below awareness or taken for granted) the result is confusion. Confusion is good. It is a piece of the puzzle. You are confused. So ask, what confuses you?

I haven't been to a Doctor yet and to be honest I don't really trust Doctors.. they just like dishing out prescriptions to help pharma make big bucks.

I have to say I pretty much agree with you about doctors, and have little faith in most of them.

As I see this, Nzakeral and Dreamer, these Truths you hold about doctors (note the massive generalisation) are part of your Personal Belief System. Thus a belief, not necessarily the truth. Doctors save lives every day. There are good doctors and bad ones. We need to distinguish between good doctors and non-serving beliefs. I don't mean to sound like a know it all. I'm just tossing it back for your contemplation and examination. Why? Because I have spent years running around feeding myself generalisations based on one negative experience. One swallow doesn't make a summer. And one money-grubbing doctor doesn't represent the profession.

Again, I don't mean to upset or talk down. Be very well, Pure Bliss

Note to Pure Bliss. There are certainly times and conditions where I am more than ready to visit a standard physician. I also have many years of experience with doctors who want to medicate the symptom rather than find the cause of a problem. Not to say they are bad doctors, but I recall one doctor talking about the speech that was given during his graduation from medical school. The speaker stood in front of all these medical student graduates and said something like "Half of everything you have learned in medical school is wrong. The problem is, we don't know which half."

I have simply reached a point where, if there is no crisis involved, I would rather look for non-medical answers before looking for medical ones. And as you know, from outside the forum, I am currently seeing a doctor and taking medication for my ADHD. My search for non-medical solutions was not giving me any results.

This really comes down to self-trust. If there is no trust in the self, and we've all been exposed to a society where the individual self (to a greater or lesser extent) is stripped of all personal power, then you're basically at the mercy of your own condition, and seldom is there effective treatment from competent experts.

Common beliefs absorbed by the mind: You were created....which basically means that you're not the power that made you You, so real power belongs to a "Someone" else, being: god, parents, teachers, the bully, demons, angels, spirit guides, the subconscious, the police, the government, doctors, lawyers, ect... which are all in turn to one degree or another "distrusted".

The flesh is sinful.
The mind is fragile.
Man is limited.
To KNOW is to be punished (need I repeat Adam and Eve, the serpent, and that damn apple).

And the list can go on for a while, and twist and turn depending on the culture you were raised in. The point is, they are all beliefs, and as such, become reality, which is of course designated as TRUTH.

Until sufficient self trust has been instilled and developed, most everything in life appears "intangible" and out of reach.

Very broad sweeping generalization in this post, but I hope its essential point was conveyed.

Here's another belief, again a generalization, but a core aspect in the minds of many: To be Human means to be a Victim....why? Because being Human means to be vulnerable and always at the mercy of a "Something", be it one's own mind, a disease, a person, a society or a government. To be Human means to SUFFER. (Don't you just love that one). Peace and harmony are reserved for the afterlife.

Agreed. Lost was an awesome show, and the writers completely messed up the ending!! Vague, stupid, and lack of real meaning all come to mind when I think of that final episode. It almost completely ruined an amazing show. But that's what happens when writers fail to commit to a concept out of fear of being rejected.

However, Lost was just a show, and didn't communicate anything valid, in my opinion. What it did capture is how people are faithfully convinced that they are at the mercy of Forces beyond their reach or understanding. Whether religious or atheist, people believe that reality is one thing, and that they are something else, disconnected from the events that emerge in their life. Being separate from reality, so much of their well being depends on how much power can be accumulated to manipulate and control what is experienced. It is this exact mind set that breeds fear and enslavement, and makes peace/happiness/fulfillment conditional degrees that must be struggled for to acquire, if realized at all.

Hi Nzakeral,
Once more congratulations. I enjoyed your post - also enjoyed Lost, what I saw of it - didn't get to see the last series so no disappointment for me about the ending.

I see progress in you Nzakeral. More and more Human - taking risks, posting stuff you think may not be 100% relevant, open to feedback = open to fresh data = open to positive change. Well done! It is so rewarding to see the Chimp all quiet and resting, trusting enough to let your Human take over and do the critical analysis.

On to level 2 as well. Good for you. Keep feeding back what comes up. Remember to ask questions about anything of interest and concern. The goal is to reassure the Chimp, so you can relax enough to let BrainEv introduce all those lovely brainwave frequencies that allow you to experience calm, curiosity, creativity, bring up old memories etc. It amazes me how many people on the forum want to improve their memory, and then when memories of the past begin to surface, they start Chimping Off about emotions attached to the memories. The point is they are retrieving memory and immediately they send a message back to their unconscious that they don't like what they are getting! So, let BrainEv do its job, and keep your eyes open for the positives. When you start to spot them, your brain will deliver more positives - it will get the message: deliver positives to Nzakeral!

One thing I have learned from connecting too many dots is that having a wild imagination and being extremely intuitive is more of a curse than a blessing in an existence such as this

Don't want to nitpick - but I sense you really do want to resolve stuff that troubles you, including explosions of heat in heart area. So look at the belief you are holding here. Wild imaginations are great fun and push creative boundaries: the world needs more of this. And really, Nzakeral, DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE THAT INTUITION COULD BE A CURSE???? Watch those random thoughts - your brain does exactly what you say. Use your intuition gift for better purposes than intuiting curses!

Let the magic begin. I look forward to your creativity and intuition being put to good use that makes you feel wonderful. Use your gifts well. Love Pure Bliss

Nzakeral,
I am the odd man out here, I did not watch Lost but heard a lot about it as everyone around me seemed to be following it. I want to say I think both Robert and Pure Bliss made excellent posts.

As far as connecting the dots, the Ancients did that with the stars creating what we now refer to as constellations. Were they right? Wrong? Who knows? Sometimes it is good to spend time connecting dots, but sometimes it is good to remember you may not see all the dots and sometimes you are adding dots that belong in a different constellation. Remember, the Big Bear and the Big Dipper are two different ways of connecting the same dots.

It is good that the heat hasn't bothered you for a time. Enjoy your journey on level 2.

Hi Nzakeral,

It could be that you're letting go of all the tension you held on for so long, this entrainment I believe is rewiring a better you.

Every so offer I get those sensations, and I think its my bodies way of letting it go, to move to greener pastures.  We all have past experiences we can't change, but we sure can move forward for the better, and change will take place.  Hang in their, today is now and a better step towards greatness.

Take care...

My first level two session was great look forward to my next one today :)

Title: Re: Strange sensation

Good morning Nzakeral,
Delighted to hear you have made a safe transition to level 2. Have you looked at the introductory video for that level? It gives you a clear indication of what is going on entrainment-wise and what to expect from the level.

Quote
It's hard to come to conclusions on theories when you're able to see them from many perspectives. Imagination and intuition create these perspectives and therefore more fear and confusion is generated than what is necessary, going from experience
I think that BrainEv will help you tone down the beta-frazzle (high amplitude and high frequency busy-busy stuff) and your intuition and creativity will be more useful and efficient. I found that levels 1 and 2 helped me to lose that scatteredness, I found a calm focus, so the world was a lot more comfortable to live in.

Excellent progress. I am proud of you and for you! Just keep posting. And keep observing the heat-attacks so that you are absolutely comfortable and stress-free around them. At that point (= no resistance from you towards them) you can start exploring them and seeing what use they are to you.

I wish you a wonderful session and new step on your life adventure. Open up to the magic, and ignore that Chimp who keeps shouting from the jungle canopy (just thank the Chimp for the well-meant warning so it calms down and goes to sleep)! Well done, Pure Bliss ;D

Hi Nzakeral,

Frustrated, pissed off, tired all the time, and confused; unable to get the answers you want to understand what you're going through...

Okay... What you're feeling is understandable. So how about you let go and allow the answers to come to you. You might ask, "But how do I do that?" Well, first you have to believe that you're even capable of getting such answers. There are roadblocks you have to eliminate in your mind, one clue being that mercury in retrograde, or any astrological phenomena for that matter, can possibly exert a force that has an effect on you. When you ascribe power and force to objects or circumstances outside you, you will always be a victim in one way or another.

Yes. Anybody who looks up to anything greater than themselves, no matter what that something is, will always be a victim to one degree or another.

And being an atheist doesn't save you from that mind set. Most people I know who say they are atheist have a tendency to lean toward science, and science and its objective view puts the individual in a universe of isolated objects that exert varying degrees of influence on other objects. That would seem to make sense, right? There is me and there is you, separated by space, therefore distance, which equates to time. Now if you're three feet in front of me, I could use my force (my capacity to move) to close the distance between us and hit you, or if I'm unsure of the force you command, pick up a rock and throw it at you. The degree to which you're affected by that action will depend on the level of force you can utilize to counter my energy. Either way, in the view of science, I am "affecting" you. But WHY am I affect you...what is the meaning of the action? All science can do is examine the other causal events that led to us being three feet in front of each other, but that fails to elude to the meaning or the why.

So in comes religion... Here we can speculate on a grand scale, and abandon the restrictive physical observations of the scientific world. Maybe you're being punished by god, and I am his instrument by which that punishment is being carried out. WHY? Perhaps you did something wrong. WHAT? I don't know. Do you know? Guess we're going to have to ask a priest, or some other religious authority to instruct us as to the meaning. But how do they know? What makes them so qualified? Special knowledge or instruction? If you want power to protect yourself, wouldn't it be a good idea if you could learn that special knowledge? How do you qualify?

Perhaps it's your karma to be hit by that rock. Why? Let's find a guru, or some other mystic who can read your chakras and tell you what you did in a past life. But if it was your past life, then why don't you know? What special knowledge can you learn to know, and thereby release sufficient energy to divert the trajectory of that rock?

I could go on and on, but the point is, both religion and science take meaning away from the individual who experiences reality. Because power and force are conditions outside you that can oppose your will, then meaning must be searched for...outside yourself. Good luck with that! Such a position will always come down to the haves and the have nots. Who's the special one, the lucky one, the gifted one; who's the one with the power?? And how can YOU get such power? Religion seeks to manipulate a god, and science seeks to manipulate observable forces, both based on a premise that appears so obvious: you are separate from the reality you experience. That very premise is the common view of humanity, and its motivation behind all conceivable action.

I'm not going to tell you what to think. I'm just going to say that your answers are within.

Good afternoon (my French time that is!) Nzakeral,

Pure Bliss here. Good to see you posting. Well done. I see you making brilliant progress again, so just keep posting. There are no fools and no experts here, just different people with different experiences and different stuff to overcome so we can get comfortable and content with life again. So no need for deletion of posts (unless you ask Tiffany - moderator - to do so). On the contrary this works a bit line an online diary - look how many posts I have written, over 400, and every time I come on here I learn something new, either by writing myself about my process, or by seeing other people being courageously and blatantly honest about some aspect of self that isn't comfortable for them. And then there are the posts about significant gains, which keep us all focused on our own next breakthrough.

Now, lets look at your original post for today.
Quote
Little update - Lvl 2 progress is going ok - I like lvl 2 over lvl 1.

Nzakeral, this is good and important. Well done. You are still on track, using BrainEv as prescribed, progressing through level 2, which introduces deeper, slower brainwave frequencies than level 1 - so you are getting fitter, brain-fitter, CONGRATULATIONS. You like level 2 better too, excellent. Give yourself some praise and recognition for having a goal and finding the discipline to move towards it day by day - most people cannot even do that.

Quote
I can't find the intro videos can anyone link me to them?

I'll go look and see if I can find the link. And then come back and paste it in.

Quote
I am still getting this heat thing every day pretty much and at least once every time I do brainev . I am still clueless in regards to it. It just pisses me off. I monitor my thoughts like you say and my mind just goes crazy and I end up confused and pissed off.

Here is a big win for you already from BrainEv, so don't forget to look at it.

In my opinion, BrainEv is exposing you to a whole spectrum of healthy, healing brainwave frequencies. Some of us, definitely me - and perhaps you to hazard a speculative guess - for reasons perhaps genetic, perhaps environmental (painful past experiences in my case) get stuck on a couple of frequencies, which I call beta frazzle, which feel awful, horrendous (the living Hell you alluded to). If our general mind-state is predominantly beta frazzle we view the whole world through a beta frazzle lens/goggles. Happily for both of us, we have hit on BrainEv, which, to use an astronomy metaphor, has the power to knock us out of our painful, repetitive, scary beta frazzle orbit. It knocks us off the beta frazzle orbit by introducing the full gamut of brainwave frequencies. BrainEv sessions can feel like mental workouts sometimes, or like relaxing sessions at the spa, where we can unwind a little, perhaps for the first time in years.

In a nutshell, "I am still clueless. It just pisses me off. I monitor my thoughts like you say and my mind just goes crazy and I end up confused and pissed off." this is a perfect example of the pain beta frazzle induces. I know this mind state like the back of my hand. I promise you that regular use of BrainEv has TOTALLY CURED ME OF IT. That is my promise. If I have spent 10 minutes in beta frazzle in the past 6 months, I'd be surprised.

Nzakeral, your job at the moment is to get to recognise beta frazzle when you experience it. It is a brainwave frequency, nothing more, nothing less (somewhere in high, jagged beta range). Admittedly it feels like Hell, but the good news is wider access to more brainwave frequencies, such as alpha, theta and delta, over a few months, all of which you are getting from BrainEv, will retrain your brain to utilise the most appropriate and helpful frequency depending on situations as they occur.

Your second task is to use BrainEv six days on, one day off, for 4 weeks and then up a level. Monitor how the sessions are going. If you are tense and upset and beta-frazzled, do something to calm you down prior to a session (maybe vigorous exercise, or stretching/yoga, or deep breathing, anything to be calm and relaxed and receptive to the new frequencies.

Quote
I am still getting this heat thing every day pretty much and at least once every time I do brainev . I am still clueless in regards to it. It just pisses me off.

Now here is a new side of the problem. First you spent significant time in Hell due to beta frazzle. Second, you have this "heat thing" that upsets you, and your brain is currently trained to deliver yet more beta-frazzle every time you find something you hate, fear, resist, worry about. A viscious circle.

Nzakeral, what you need to cope with the "heat thing" is RELIABLE DATA. Look, your poor brain is searching, searching, searching to help you out. Your brain has tried to explain this phenomenon to you, but without sufficient reliable (=expert) data, it comes back "clueless" and "pissed off". You have a creative brain, it even evaluates whether Mercury being Retrograde can have an effect on body strength/fitness, but then it was no longer retrograde and the weakness continued. See, you are desperately searching for reliable data.

1) Please, go to a doctor. Just to access data. You don't have to accept the data, but a good doctor can at least eliminate immediate health issues.
2) It could be psychosomatic - (me speculating here, so NOT reliable data), so again BrainEv will be your ally, as it tends to bring up anything within us that requires healing.
3) Observe the "heat thing", don't let it terrorise you (send you into beta frazzle state). Learn to watch it. Let it take its course. Don't fight it. I am sure you have to accept it, befriend it, be totally intimate with it, before you can heal it.

Quote
Everyday since starting brainev I feel lethargic and weak and pretty much just want to sleep all day. I thought this had something to do with Mercury in retrograde but nothing has changed and Mercury is no longer in retrograde. I am still able to hit the weights three times a week (just!) It feels like I've smoked some terrible indica weed or something 24/7. I actually feel like..numbness in my limbs yet I don't even smoke and haven't done any drugs at all in this lethargic period.  :-[

This is a bit speculative, because I am not you. However, it is a possible explanation that meshes with some of the stuff I have been reading on exposure to calming, relaxing alpha, theta and delta frequencies. If you are wound tight as a ball of string, immersed in jagged, painful, repetitive beta-frazzle, well, relaxation and calm and s.....l.....o.....w frequency brainstates will feel..... well..... pretty slow. I know that our body (which includes our muscles, which will have a direct effect on strength and may feel like lethargy) reacts directly to slow, deep frequencies by falling asleep. It is possible for the body to fall asleep on us, while the mind is awake. Perhaps BrainEv is doing a good job, your body is a faster learner (and so is relaxing) than your mind (which is still busy-busy)? In a nutshell, you have already indicated you work out three times a week - not too bad I would think, certainly better than no workouts. Your body is indicating a need for sleep and rest. Well, listen to it. Get more sleep and rest. Sleep and rest  also are times when the brain naturally produces nice, deep, slow frequencies of theta and delta, so you will further give your brain a holiday from beta-frazzle.

That's all for now, Nzakeral. Let me know how this all 'sits' with you. Take heart, you are doing so so so well. All will be well. Here is to the time when you look back at beta frazzle and shake your head at how differently your brain behaves now. I did it. So will you. Just work the BrainEv program. Keep posting. Love Pure Bliss - hug from France

Well done, Nzakeral.
You have APPROPRIATE DATA. It appears your doctor doesn't believe this is a medical condition. Good news for you. One avenue of research that you can close off. You are not physically ill.

Now you can start working on the psychological aspects. Get to know your overheating symptom intimately. There are lots of rewarding avenues to explore here, all of which will allow you to get to know your real self better (real self as opposed to unconscious beliefs and mini-programs that make us act the way we do in ways that don't serve us).

Well done for going to doc. I wasn't sure that you were really commited to getting to the bottom of this. You proved your determination and I am pleased for you. Steps in the right direction. And one of these steps will be a Giant Step, and then you will be getting places.

Proud of you and for you. Pure Bliss

Hi Nzakeral,
I have read your posts...... all of them..... including the crying..... and I totally sympathise. Believe me.

However I cannot respond right now..... or BIG TROUBLE with the family. Have urgent things to attend to.
I can see the progress you are making. Your ruling things out - this is good. Giggling is good too, as you are not taking yourself too seriously, this is NOT a life or death issue.

I will reply. Bear with me.
In the meantime, just keep observing yourself, just as you are doing on your forum posts. This is the perfect way for you to self-heal.

By the way, lots and lots of people have some misery arising through delving within (whether they do this through BrainEv or through self-discovery).

Just accept that painful things, especially things we hate and resist, can be painful. Our thoughts and emotions can and do cause severe pain.

Talk soon, until then be well and keep looking for ACCURATE DATA. Love Pure Bliss

We on this forum can call ourselves blessed for having, among others, Pure Bliss on our side. Your are welcome to dive into the ideas and solutions that are lovingly offered in these threads. But do know that at the end of the day, it is your choice to apply or reject what is offered.

I reread your first post on this issue, where you mentioned not knowing when the hot flashes began. There were also another couple of posts where you associated them with Brain Ev. Now, you have taken a break and the hot flashes have stopped. Cause and effect? Possibly. Have you also stopped anything else? Began any thing else?

Personally I would give things a rest for a week or so and then try Brain Ev again, keeping everything else the same.

Robert? Pure Bliss? Do you have any suggestions?

Good morning everyone,

Nice to see so many people pitching in to support Nzakeral!

Have limited time. So Nzakeral, I want to draw your attention to the serious effects of taking false beliefs on board. Note: i am not suggesting YOUR beliefs are false. I am suggesting that false beliefs (which we hold to be true for ourselves - so swallowing the lie hook, line and sinker) play havoc with many peoples' lives.

I remember an example from a text book when i was studying statistics, correlation, to be exact. The front page of a newspaper ran a story that the price of gold what increasing daily. The second story adjacent was about the number of prostitutes operatingin  Manilla, in the Philippines was also rising rapidly. Based on this restricted data we can corrolate that the high gold prices result in increasing numbers of women who work as prostitutes. We could assume that high gold prices causes an increase in prostitution, a fair enough assumption based upon the data available.

However, social workers in Manilla added a crucial piece of data. They demonstrated that the increased number of prostitutes was due to severe poverty there, and in order to make ends meet these women were forced to take employment that was abhorrent to them, and that included prostitution. The new data changes everything. We can now question and doubt whether world gold prices and Manilla prostitute numbers are connected in any way.

Nzakeral, I believe you are making correlations (cause and effect just as Dreamer says above) based on a) too little data or, perhaps, b) faulty data. There is only one way to get data and that is to get RELIABLE DATA.

I notice that you are very concerned about the connection between the overheating issue being connected to starting BrainEv. And there is also concern that entrainment may in some way mess with one's mind unfavourably. I  sincerely advise you to get a cheap, second-hand copy of Anna Wise's brilliant book 'Awakening the Mind: a guide to mastering the power of your brain waves'. Really this is what most of us who use BrainEv desire: a brain that is more efficient, a brain that works for us and not against us. Anna Wise explains exactly what entrainment is, how it works, how it affects us, what being in beta, alpha, theta and delta brainstate feels like, and what each frequency does for us. She looks at the brainwave frequencies of genius, of insight, of compassion, of healing and so on and on. Best of all, for you, she is not related to BrainEv, nor does she advocate entrainment, she reads EEG brainwave printouts.

This accurate, unbiased data may help you to decide whether BrainEv and entrainment are a good, health-giving, healing option for you. You will be empowered (in the driving seat). You can choose based on more data - not a snap decision connecting onset of hot flashes and use of BrainEv. If they are in some way connected, then it is because you have made the connection. If you have the power to connect them, you also have the power to disconnect them. To decide you need ACCURATE DATA.

I also point you in the direction of another book called "The Chimp Paradox: The Mind Management Programme for Confidence, Success and Happiness" by Dr Steve Peters. For me, this man is gifted. He has helped me to understand the parts of myself that I don't like AND  shown me how to overcome faulty software programs I run like over-eating, dealing with rejection (a big issue for me), setting boundaries (a current issue) and a whole lot more. For me, this is my book of 2012. I cannot recommend it highly enough. If you want a tool that works to get the life you want, this is the book, in my opinion (and I have read a whole lot of books). Dr Peters was the mental trainer behind the British Olympic Cycling team which won so many golds at the last Olympics. Brilliant man, brilliant concept, and really and entertaining read.

I wish you well, and again congratulate you on the monumental effort you are making to straighten out 'tangled wires'. We are all in the same boat, just some of us run software that really causes chaos, others are blessed at having more efficient software. Reemember IT ISN'T THE PERSON WHO IS THE PROBLEM, IT IS THE SOFTWARE THEY RUN. SOFTWARE IS EASY TO CHANGE WITH ACCURATE DATA.

Love to you and I can't wait to read your next post. Pure Bliss

@ Nzakeral:
I agree with Robert, you must do what feels right for you. I am glad that your heart chakra is peaceful. Good for you! I wish you a whole new adventure in your next chapter of life.

@ The Rest of Us:
I am learning a lot about Beliefs and continue to do all in my power to rid myself of any that cause stress, low emotional scale, or have body-symptoms attached to them. Here is yet more evidence: what we Believe is what we will experience. There is no discord between Beliefs and Reality. So as Robert so elegantly pointed out in his 'green jacket' metaphor, if we don't like our reality, forget labouring to alter reality in the outside world, get busy dissolving Beliefs, Assumptions, Emotional Pains attached to Trauma, and then you really get to change the jacket for one that suits us.

Here is to having the courage to turn a new page, and letting go of yesterday's newspaper which is full of old news - plus those news items saved from when we were 6, 10, or we failed in love or work or play.
I face a new adventure that hits many buttons. Am curious to move beyond the apprehension and laziness of inaction, when I know I should have done this 2 years ago. Content as usual, Pure Bliss ;D

Hello Nzakeral,

You have to do what you feel is correct for you. If Brain Ev is not the path you choose to be on, then blessings to you on whatever path you do choose.

Dear Nzakeral,
This is about what is doing what is best for you.
In my view brainwave entrainment has nothing to do with external mind control - it has to do with empowering me to have more control over my own mind, making better use of it. This has been 100% my experience.

You have doubts about the veracity of this. So go do some research. Determine for yourself what is Your Truth. And follow that.

Again, I wish you a  magnificent personal journey that ultimately leads to personal freedom. Be well, Pure Bliss

I want to keep at this as I feel I will see benefit from it, growing up I spent WAAAY to much time playing video games and listening to fast paced music, Can't have been good for my brainwaves ;P

Hi Nzakeral,

Interesting you are listening to level 2, especially as I reread your posts where you stated you were opting out. My guess is that BrainEv will help slow down and calm your brainwaves over time (I have been at it 10 months!), so that is is easier for you to focus, search out what is true for you and what is false, and taking decisive action will become easier.

I am reading Dr Joe Dispenza's book "Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself: How to lose your mind and create a new one". Great book and I think you would love it. Especially the first section on quantum physics, so well explained, and how this relates to our ability to create reality. [Note he doesn't even consider the alien angle!] I found some great answers there as to why we should allow our outcomes surprise us (i.e. don't fix on how something should manifest), and his data on frequencies, energy of mind and of body getting out of alignment (my case, but I'm getting better).

He really understands the old world view (Newtonian) of cause and effect, when you believe the external environment is controlling your internal environment (thoughts/feelings) AND the quantum view or changing your environment, how we think and feel - and watching how the external environment is altered by your efforts (we cause an effect).

I think this book will answer most of your questions and worries and you'll enjoy the read.

By the way I am sure you are right about computer games: definitely a source of beta-frazzle - the very frequencies you are trying to train yourself out of. These are all about stimulating the mammalian brain (fight, flight or freeze), automated responses (not great either if you take the time to read the Chimp Paradox), and shutting down deep thinking - as this requires slow, slow theta and delta frequencies.

Good luck. Pure Bliss
