Creative visualization and stimulation of brainwave activity are among the most studied areas of psychiatry and psychology. The following results have been demonstrated through documented studies and in clinical settings with hundreds of thousands of clients:
- The right and left hemispheres of the brain become more balanced.
- Blood flow to the brain increases, resulting in clearer thinking, better concentration, improved memory, and enhanced creativity.
- Serotonin levels increase by up to 21%, which calms the mind and body and creates an overall sense of wellbeing.
- Endorphin levels increase by up to 25%. These are the hormones that flow through the body when we feel happy. Endorphins provide the brain with alertness, are a natural anti-depressant, provide relief from pain, and create pleasurable and loving feelings.
*For additional research information, please refer to the research section on the website or in the back of the SMT catalog.
The majority of SMT users report significant stress relief through deep relaxation, better and sounder sleep, improved memory, improved learning skills such as concentration and recall of information, emotional stability, a sense of calm, increased focus, lucid dreaming, and increased physical energy. We are always researching these benefits with our users and partners in the field.
Please be aware that while MindFit and Self-Mastery Technology are designed to help you reach your full potential, we cannot guarantee which results you will experience as results vary from person to person.
*Is it safe?*
Absolutely. The only known side effects are improved memory, better sleep, clearer focus, enhanced concentration, faster healing and reduced stress.
*Strobe lights have been known to cause problems in people who suffer from
serious medical conditions like epilepsy, seizure disorders, brain injury,
or photosensitivity. If you have any of these concerns, you should ask your
medical professional if the light technology is right for you.*
*Who Can Benefit from MindFit and Self-Mastery Technology?*
Anyone who is not sensitive to flashing light can benefit from MindFit
technology. The MindFit, used in combination with Self-Mastery Technology,
creates a potent tool for creating laser-like focus and enhanced
The light intensity on the MindFit is adjustable, so those who have minor
light sensitivity can almost always find a setting that's right for them.
Even those diagnosed with light sensitivity seizures can experience the
profound benefits from the Self-Mastery Technology processes alone (no
*What Happens During a MindFit/Self-Mastery Technology Session?*
With the MindFit glasses (that resemble sunglasses) over your closed eyes
and headphones over your ears, you are immersed in a perfect mixture of
light and sound frequencies. Your eyes will be treated to a beautiful light
show while you listen to specially designed music and the Self-Mastery
Technology process. This all combines to enhance your experience and invite
a higher degree of alpha/theta brainwave activity.
Some people may experience colorful geometric patterns while others may
lose track of the lights completely. The light and sound pulse rate shifts
from wide-awake beta to a dreamy drowsy state of theta as the session
progresses. Using the science of frequency following response (FFR), your
brainwave activity will follow the pulse rate of the NSA system. At the
same time, your conscious mind rehearses the changes or improvements you
desire for your life. Most people notice the biggest difference after the
sessions end. Many report feeling "calm and focused," or say that they feel
"alert, yet relaxed."
*What is Frequency Following Response?*
Frequency following response (FFR) is the effect created through
synchronized light and sound. It's how the brain "syncs" to the lights and
tones. While your brain follows the frequencies, you experience less inner
chatter and improved concentration. After a few days or weeks of regular
use, most people gain a sense of balance and inner calm. Users report
feeling serene, focused, and alert even when faced with high-pressure
*What are Binaural Beats?*
Binaural beats are two separate tones of a slightly different pitch. One
tone is presented to the left ear and the other to the right ear. Your
brain combines the two tones to make a single new tone. The single tone
pulses to match relaxed brainwave frequencies. Your brain follows the
pattern and creates a relaxed state that is optimal for learning, problem
solving, and self-motivation.
*What are Isochronic Tones?*
Isochronic tones are equal intensity pulses of sound separated by an
interval of silence. They turn on and off rapidly, but the speed depends on
the desired brain frequency. The discrete nature of isochronic tones makes
them particularly easy for the brain to follow. While binaural beats rely
on balanced hearing in both ears, isochronic tones work effectively for
nearly everyone, with the exception of someone with complete hearing loss.
This is one of the reasons the PorterVision NSAs incorporate both types of
*How Important is the Music and Sound?*
The best brainwave entrainment is both auditory and visual. Environmental
sounds and music have been used for centuries in almost all cultures to
create altered states of consciousness. For example, native tribes used
drums, chants, and environmental sounds like wind and rain to provide
strong mental pictures and associations. There is a reason we find it
relaxing to sit by the ocean and listen to waves crashing to shore or the
sound of a stream as it trickles over rocks. These pleasant sounds tend to
naturally generate alpha brainwave activity.
In today's frenetic culture, though, we rarely get to enjoy nature's
relaxing effects. For this reason, the PorterVision team has individually
encoded each session so that on a daily basis you can get a perfectly
synchronized experience similar to that which nature provides.
The music you hear on every audio-session was composed specifically to
complement the alpha/theta brainwave entrainment. The music is designed to
create a full 360-degree experience that floods your mind with beautiful
images and peaceful thoughts.
*Why do some of the SMT audio-sessions have two voices?*
This *dual-voice technique* is *intentional*. It's not a mistake! The
purpose of the dual voice is three-fold. First, you'll notice that the
ancillary voice moves from right to left. This is to activate both the
right and left hemispheres of the brain. Second, you'll find that the
primary voice is more assertive, while the secondary voice is more passive.
This, too, is to activate different areas of the brain. Third, the two
voices work together to create a whole-brain state by inspiring the
conscious mind to let go. When the conscious mind isn't trying to control
every word, it helps the brain to balance while freeing the individual to
relax and enjoy the positive ideas and images being presented. It's
advisable to inform patients about the dual-voice so they don't think
there's an issue with the recording. You'll find that when you tell them
they don't have to consciously listen to either voice, they'll thoroughly
enjoy the deeper relaxation this dual-voice method provides.
