This area of the Secret Mandala revolves around the human brain, operating in a very special manner during sleep. It involves the subtleties of our body enabled by experiencing Epsilon sleep, which helps you attain a state of self-nurturing rest. When you are somnambulistic, which is a state of total rest during sleep, it is possible to gradually reprogram yourself using biophysical training methods using epigenetics. In this process you can tell certain genes that control certain functions to express or repress themselves. This process in effect enables physical and mental changes during your sleep. In other words, during that special time, you are able to influence your body’s DNA to suppress or enhance certain of your physical or mental characteristics.
Enhancing or suppressing your body’s characteristics through epigenetics is a key to enjoying a fantastic state of existence. Holistic Health helps you feel vibrant as you awaken, ready to ‘take on the day’ and excellently go about your life at a mental and physical peak.
Epigenetic is a unique process that during a specific sleep period, which can be identified by epsilon waves, indicates a fully rested mind, which can process mental concepts to produce profound changes in your life. This effect also continues during wakefulness, while feeling relaxed, robust and open to innovative ideas.
And in this regard, the art of Holistic Health can also direct your day’s efforts to integrate your body and mind into a well-organized system.
Things, processes and objectives just seem to fall into place. However, if you find yourself up against a challenging task or short of a goal, just take a nap of less than twenty-minutes to help resolve the problem. While entering this super-nap, as it were, you automatically reflect back to your Holistic Health sleep mode and quickly find ways to resolve your difficulty.
The Holistic Health process begins with preparing for an restful sleep session, which you will find as you get deeper into this phenomenon, is more than a loom knitting up the ragged sleeve of the day's cares. Sleep accually is dynamic and requires some preparation and pre-sleep preparation as listed below.
These are the twelve keys for setting up your sleep area for an excellent rest as part of your Holistic Health and Epsilon sleep session:
These twelve pre-ops can open the door to many extraordinary sleep adventures, and a wonderful life. If in your own experience you discover additional tricks or tips in this endeavor pass them along.
While the brain is extremely complex, with some epigenetic pre-conditioning you can move into beneficial mind-wave patterns that result in telltale brain waves that are observable and can be measured. Interested participants can email for details.
Doing yoga breathing A.K.A. Breath Work and Navy Seal-type breathing can relax the lungs and your entire body and make sleep more productive. The trick is to approach your sleep time with a very quiet body and a quiet mind. Following the ten steps above will enable you experience the powerful secrets of fully restful sleep and even more.
Intensity of these brain waves change depending on your mental and physical state. The waves that are measurable are Theta, Alpha, Beta and Epsilon waves:
The esoteric area of Epsilon waves is involved with the deepest and most restful state, and hover around 0.1 – 0.5 to 1.25 Hz. As your mind and body approaches the somnambulistic state, the brain waves increase and the Epsilon state approaches a condition similar to ‘suspended animation.'
This is a state where you're fully alive but without the twitching and movement of Alpha Sleep. Since your body is in a state of total rest, your breathing is very deep, slow and you’ll manifest a slowed heartbeat, respiration and pulse. This minimal activity makes it difficult to sense and record the Epsilon waves. But here is where the magic of transformation and spiritual growth begins, and you can enter the worlf of the “third eye” with all its spiritual and esoteric traditions. Keeping things simple is best. Think gently about relaxing every part of your body, and read metaphysical books like Lawrence LeShan's book, "Alternate Realites."
One way to recall this experinge is to keep a meditation diary. It's best to use a plain hard cover book and write in pen. Don't be concerned or too editorial about your notes if they are a bit fuzzy and off the wall. The concious mind under control of the left or analytical hemisphere, can be a bit critical of thoughts produced during what Professor Julian Jaynes calls bi-cameral thinking.
It is said that some yogis and meditation masters are able to achieve this state on demand at any time but because they very well versed in this art. Epsilon waves are so low in frequency (Hertz) that most electroencephalogram (EEG) devices are not able to measure them. Epsilon waves around 0.5 Hz require a low-noise environment with minimal 60 Hertz interference. Since our world is immersed in 50 and 60-Hertz frequencies with their harmonics all over the electromagnetic spectrum, the sleeping environment must be electrically quiet and as free as possible from this sort of interference.
The benefits of accessing the Epsilon wave state can be an extraordinary state of consciousness, one of a much higher awareness, and possibly a state of suspended animation. Adhering to the twelve guidelines above will help to get you down into the Epsilon wave state, and experience the magic of connection” between the body and the spirit provided by the epiphysis.
This condition is conducive for inter-human communications during Epsilon wave sleep. Upon wakening from such a controlled or naturally produced Epsilon sleep, the mind is clear and ideas flow like rivers of creation. Most sleepers miss the Epsilon state because of intense mental activity before turning in to sleep. As you relax and go deeper into sleep, Theta waves with frequency components in the 4 to 7 Hz range occur. These provide memory formation thus they are involved with mechanisms of learning, remembrance, meditation, recall, motor behavior, sensorimotor processing or active motor behavior such as walking or physical exercise. Alpha waves occur at around 8-12 Hz and when measured from your frontal lobes provides an estimate of your relaxed state and can enhances your creative energy.
Additional information on the workings of the Epsilon state:
This esoteric area of the Holistic Health paradigm will prepare you to experience some fantastic secrets about the here-to-fore mysterious mind-body connection. The human body contains some 100 billion neurons, which as part of our nervous system including the brain, spinal cord communicates with every part of the body. The body’s nerve channels are made up of almost invisible threads woven into an extensive network all directed by the influence of your Pineal Gland a brain organ that supports many body functions.
The Pineal Gland provides melatonin to assist you to go deep in sleep, and also acts as a nerve control center. This brain like area integrates our right and left cerebral hemispheres in the silence of our deepest sleep, yokes the power of our nervous system to produce a thought transmitting system. Expanding this mode is assisted by the pineal gland by production of dimethyltryptamine (DMT) which is a neurotransmitter dependent on that has particular functions mainly linked to the “connection” between the body and the spirit.During our alpha-wave sleep period after making great leaps in mental activity during the Epsilon wave state this physical extension of our brain is connected by the pineal mind, to enable communication with our wonderful worldwide human Internet. This communication is made possible by your miles of connected nerve fibers composing your body’s nervous system.
The body’s nervous system is made up of neurotransmitters wired into a physical antenna extending for miles. Our nervous system’s communication network produces an extra-corporeal phenomenon that acts as an antenna, of over 2.5 miles in length. As a result of this resonant frequency of 7.5 Hertz, human alpha-waves can propagate through the entire length of our nervous system and beyond the body. Our neurotransmitters develop nerve impulses, during our dream time, at a signal strength of about 110 millivolts. This signal level is strong enough during large excursions of our alpha waves to launch our thoughts like a radio broadcast signals at a speed of up to 100 meters per second right off the ends of our nerves.
We can with this message transmission system produce a grand orchestration of our ideas by joining the Universal Mind and communicate with any living being. In addition, if our ancestors remain strong in our memories, we can contact them as well as any personal spirit. This can be manifested from our readings and research of a famous author or scientist who think similar thoughts. In other words, we are making a mental bond from each creative or literary person in our lives to our mental conceptions.
This is learning of the highest degree, where all thoughts are linked together at that special time of night, to share, analyze and compare. These efforts and the resulting phenomenon have made us the greatest civilization the world has ever known.
Under those specific conditions transmit our ideas into the local environment. This supports the concept, and magical attraction if you will, of a university or college campus to produce higher learning and valuable research. Thus, when similar minds of unique academic persuasions, gather, work and sleep in a collegiate environment, they can assist each other in the expansion of their minds and grow their intellect. This phenomenon can also be seen or observed in more informal gatherings of individuals, such as in a commune, kibbutz, or seminary, where people cohabit one another, share similar thoughts and have similar goals. Therefore, the act of staying at a monastery on a retreat for instance for a period of time enables a religious person to learn and concentrate on the ways of his religion and enjoy the glorious state of grace pervading that environment.
Then when we arise in the morning, we are able to share during our awakening our connections with other awakening minds, and together we can yoke the power of our marvelous nervous systems to produce far reaching thoughts. At that special time, it is possible to create instinctively driven masterpieces of creative art, new modes of expansive living and positive contributions to our all-encompassing culture.
