I've been playing around with beta and theta waves and guided meditations in recent months, so it's about time I pushed the boundaries and tested some new ground.
Enter iAwake Technologies.
Listing themselves as a “Brainwave and Biofield Entrainment” project (more on biofields later) they say that through the use of their products we “will be guided toward deeper and deeper levels of happiness, joy, peace, prosperity, and emotional freedom.”
Headed up by two master’s degree holders in Transpersonal Psychology, the company certainly has the credentials to back up what they are saying. The trouble is, a lot of what they are saying will probably go right over your head 🙂
So this is why, like me, you should take the leap of faith and try their free audio track.
I’ll explain. Up until today, I had no idea what a biofield was, and I’m still getting to grips with it. According to the theory,
“When two energy fields enter into resonance with one another, this is called the universal language of resonance. What happens is an interchange―as two fields interface, they exchange energy and information.”
As we are all made of energy, and so is everything around us, these subtle energy fields can be manipulated- like when we practice Qi Gong or tai chi.
iAwake go on to link it up with Sattva, sacred geometry and technology to amplify the subtle energies that already exist in… err… everything, to play with our biofields. Yeah, it's pretty deep.
How Does iAwake Work?
Anyway, the tech of iAwake, unlike brainwave entrainment, works on the electric field of the device you are playing the track on, so even if the volume is set to zero, the electric field manipulation will continue.
This means you can have it playing on your phone, on silent, and still get the effects!
So, as mentioned, there’s a free track, which will give you a full taste of the full program that accelerates progress into deep meditation states, increases your creativity (always good news for a hobby writer to hear) and deepens your compassion for self and others. Which, I think I’m doing ok at, but you can never have too much compassion I suppose.
Co-founder John Depuy says, “I suffered from severe depression and emotional trauma, found healing through the application of this technology – and now use it as a core part of my work as an addiction recovery professional and teacher.”
It seems a little like iAwake is claiming to be a cure-all to almost all things and turn me simultaneously into an ascended super being.
Normally this is where I’d turn on my bullshit deflectors to double-front, but that would be unfair without giving the sample at least a fair crack at convincing me.
Twenty Minutes Later…
Well, that was interesting. I feel chilled, and mentally clean as usual after meditation. The track itself wasn’t the binaural beats type sound I had expected, but a relaxing rainfall soundscape that once I had gotten over the psychosomatic urge to pee, was rather pleasant. The background chatter of my mind settled down pretty swiftly, I would say a little quicker than usual.
It was surprising as I had thought that it would harder for me to slip into a meditational state while in the back of my mind I knew that I had to take notes to write this section of the review.
Clear your mind, but remember everything. Don’t think of anything, but don’t forget anything either. Ugh.
Was it a good meditation?
Hell yeah, it was a superb experience. Naturally, I’m unable to report to you that I achieved enlightenment, but it was an enlightening look at what iAwake is all about.
The products range in price between around $15 and up to $65, and there is a vast array of programmes to follow, with over thirty separate packages designed to entrain brainwaves, heartwaves, improve your golfing or workouts, and many more.
If you're unsure what to grab, go for the starter kit like me and see how you get on from there.
iAwake is an alternative technology to binaural beats, which is really exciting and I'm pumped to mix up the two this week.
Whether it does all the stuff it says about balancing my electric fields and that I couldn’t tell you quite yet, but my first encounter has been super promising.
If you're still on the fence, check out this customer testimonial, which really struck a chord with me.
I've been using your product for several months. I started using shortly after I ended a 7 year business relationship. It was a very stressful time in my life. Yet, with the help of your program, I felt more relaxed and centered than normal.
I find that I am more focused on peace, and better able to resolve conflicts during intense negotiations. I find that when problems arise, I tend to just breathe, re-center myself, and start thinking of creative solutions. My progress in the gym also seemed to accelerate and I believe there is a correlation. I find that I am sleeping better through the night, and more awake and alert during the day. – Michael Halbfish
Their website might look a tad 1990s, but iAwake is certainly a look into the future of brainwave entrainment, and it's already doing good things in my head space.
