Immrama Focus 2-CD set review

I’ve previously reviewed Immrama’s Insight CD. That CD is a great tool to relax the mind and expand its possibilities using binaural beat brainwave technology. Another product that Immrama Institute offers is a 2-CD set called “Focus” and it is intended for a totally different purpose. As the name “Focus” might suggest, the audio on this set is intended to let you perform your work better, more productively. It achieves this by utilizing the same binaural beats technology overlaid over the soothing sound of rain, as the in Insight CD. On the pure auditory level, both sets sound literally the same, since the binaural beats, which create the different brainwave patterns, cannot be discerned from the audio of the rain. Immrama Institute states that the Focus CD set can help you in the following manners: Improve your levels of focus and concentration Enhance your memory Increase your focus and attention while reading or working Improve your retention of information while studying Achieve a mental zone while exercising Improve your thinking speed and performance Improve concentration and attention in people with ADD or ADHD The set consists of 3 tracks spread over the two CDs. Disc 1 contains one 72-minute long track, called Clarity. It is intended to be used for a relaxed concentration, like when reading or engaging in a hobby, or during exercise sessions, helping athlete to get...

This is an interesting site where its editor posts about the debate between researchers of psi and skeptics. Anyone who’s into serious debate on parapsychology should check this...

Marc’s story

A reader, Marc, wrote me the following story, asking to help him with explanation. I’m asking you to share your thoughts as well. Here’s what Marc wrote: I was wondering if there is any documented paranormal phenomenon related to what my girlfriend has experienced. About 6 months ago, her german shepard was in very bad health. The dog had a bad hip and was in pain every day. The last 3 weeks of the dogs life, my girlfriend started to feel extreme pain in her hip as well, to the point of limping. I thought there may have been a connection, but kept my mouth shut. Finally, the family put the dog down. So I ask my girlfriend a few days later if she has had any pain the last few days to which she replied, No. I then explained to her what I thought. She is a person who has had paranormal experiences in the past (ghosts and what not), some that I’ve even seen. She also has had a very serious case of allergies and just general bad health lately, while i’ve ejoyed pretty good health. I spent my life in and out of hospitals my whole childhood and now as an adult I usually get sick a couple times each winter, but not this one. It seems that she, almost, adopts the illnesses on those she...

Immrama Institute Insight CD review

One of the prizes in the Psi Experiments that I run is Immrama’s Institute’s Insight CD. “This CD utilizes harmonically layered brainwave audio technology combined with soothing sounds of natural rain to help your brain quickly and effortlessly reach extraordinary levels of enhanced performance not normally attainable without years of training” (from the Insight CD back cover). The CD consists of three tracks, each of them is 24 minutes in length: Track 1, titled “Journey”, guides the mind down from Beta state through the Alpha and Theta states into a deeply relaxed, meditative Delta state. Track 2, Exploration, begins in a Deep Delta and guides deeper to Low Delta. Track 3, Insight, begins in a Deep Delta state and holds the mind in this state the majority of the time, then it gradually guides your mind back up through Theta and into the Alpha. It is advisable to listen to Track 1 every day, tracks 2 and 3 should only be listened to after track 1, which brings the mind from Beta to the deeper levels. My experience with the Insight CD was very positive. The sound of the rain is pleasant and masks outside noise, if you’re in a somewhat noisy environment. The power of Immrama’s Insight CD to induce relaxation is great. In a matter of several minutes after listening to the first track, the mind enters a deep...
