BrainEV Follow-up – and some other stuff you can try
Last edition we mentioned BrainEV and its use in getting you brain on the right wavelength. I thought I’d try the free demo so I could comment on it from real experience, rather than just the research I’ve done.
Now, I like the concept of using different frequency sounds to sync with your natural brainwaves to achieve results – as an engineer, I’ve seen energy waves do some powerful things like the Tacoma Narrows Bridge collapse, where the wind invoked an oscillation frequency that caused freaky deck deflection and ultimate collapse (here’s some footage of it from youtube Tacoma Narrows) – so I can kind of believe the concept of using energy waves of the right frequency to achieve targeted results.
So I tried the free download for 2 weeks, and took note of how I felt after each session. The advertising blurb from BrainEV claims that you’ll feel results within a few days – sometimes even after the first session. I tried it for a week, without any noticeable difference in my mind power – although I did have more frequent and vivid dreams, which were quite entertaining at times.
Anyway, towards the end of the second week of use I did start to feel more energetic and focussed – and the movie-scene-dream sequences continue to entertain! Whether or not the increased energy is from BrainEV or the 8 cups of coffee I consumed, but I’m curious enough to try it for a little longer. The concept of the BrainEV process is that you step through a different level each month – so I’ll keep you all posted on how the subsequent sessions go.
In the meantime, if anyone else has given this program a go, give some feedback on your experience. If you want to try it for yourself, you can get a free trial here - and the whole program as a 7 month money back guarantee if you’re still not convinced.
Of course if the concept of brainwave manipulation doesn’t sound like it’s for you, there are also a lot of testimonies on the use of visualisation and self-hypnosis as a means of programming your subconscious mind with your goals, so that your subconscious will then work towards these goals – believe and it will be!
Even Harry Potter learnt this in Part 2 of the Deathly Hallows - in that scene with Professor Dumbledore after Harry had been killed and the Professor was rabbiting on about Harry being able to choose whether to go back or join him in the afterlife, Harry at one point said, “Is this real or is it all in my head,” to which Dumbledore responded “Of course it’s all in your head, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t real.”
I must admit, I’ve had less effect from this method – perhaps my logical brain can’t fully grasp ‘how’ this works even though there are millions of people (and successful people at that) who swear by this approach, and there are many success stories to prove it.
Of course, I understand the need for self-confidence, and positive thinking and positive self-talk certainly helps in this regard, but I’ve always drawn the line at what I think is realistic and achievable and what is clearly unrealistic and just a wild fantasy – I mean, as much as I would like to think I could be an Olympic athlete, it just ain’t going to happen.
But if you want to try this approach instead, try this Free Ebook - How to Create the Life You Always Wanted . The good thing about ‘manifesting’ your dreams through visualisation or self-hypnosis is that you don’t need any resources other than your own ability to believe in yourself and what you desire. Anyway, I’ve attached a few other articles on this topic – so keep reading and happy manifesting or brainwave manipulation (depending on your preference!).
”Using the expectant power of the brain to succeed”There are many examples of optimism and a positive attitude breeding positive outcomes - in sport, massive swings of power are determined by positive and negative emotions. The same exists in everyday experiences - but the scoreboard is not as defined.
Of course, blind optimism is dangerous too – and that’s where goal setting works. It gives you the direction and the plan to achieve your personal success, and combined with a little motivation and a positive attitude – there’s just no stopping you!
Think of goals as your destination, action plans as your road map and motivation and attitude as the fuel for your car. How does attitude make a difference?
Quite simply, if you believe in something enough – so it will be!
I’m sure you’ve all heard of the placebo effect – a doctor gives a patient a sugar pill, but tells them it’s a cure for their ailment. And what do you know, the patient gets better! Why? It’s not because sugar is a magical cure for everything, but it’s because the brain is so powerful, it can cure the body – but only if it believes it can.
This is known as the expectant power of the brain – if it expects an outcome, it will make that outcome happen. If your brain expects you to succeed – you will!
I remember writing a paper for a conference. There was a prize for the best paper and I initially thought to myself – I’m going to write the best paper and win that prize. So I wrote the paper. After presenting the paper at the conference, my confidence wavered – there were lots of good papers and mine just didn’t seem to stack up.
But despite my last minute jitters and doubts, my paper won – because I wrote the paper with a winning attitude [my doubt only crept in after it was all done and dusted].
So as far as I’m concerned – self-belief and a positive attitude really works!
But you need to REALLY believe – not just pretend to believe. You can’t trick your brain into expecting something if at the back of your mind you don’t think it will happen. You need to do more than just say it to yourself, you need to convince yourself – and this isn’t always easy to do.
And this is the secret of ‘The Secret’. You may have heard of ‘The Secret’ – a system that guarantees you untold wealth and success. The system is based on the concept of the expectant power of the brain – believe and you will achieve!
More specifically, the system of ‘The Secret’ is:
Step 1: Ask – ask the “Universe” what you want. Whether it’s a promotion at work, a new house or even a better car park [as claimed by proponents of ‘The Secret’]. This step requires you to define exactly what you want.
Step 2: Believe – this is the crux of ‘The Secret’. You need to really and truly believe that you are going to get what you want. There’s no point pretending to believe to trick the universe [actually, your brain] into giving you what you want. You need to truly and honestly believe that this is going to happen.
Step 3: Receive – once you believe, then you will receive what you want!
But whether you believe the hype of ‘The Secret’ or not [I still can’t quite swallow being able to get a parking space using this system!], it does highlight the power of positive thinking and the expectant power of the brain – believe and you will receive! And this power used in conjunction with a personal strategic plan for your success, which you can develop through the proven process of goal setting – is what will make you a success.

Here’s the Article…
Although you can see that the glass is half-empty, you chose to see it in a positive way. It is still half-full, anyway. The absence of half of the volume of water didn’t even bother you. What mattered was that it still contains water. If this is how you answered the question above and how you justified your answer, then you have a positive way of thinking.
Positive thinking is a way of looking at the brighter side of life. Everything is good, beautiful, and light. There are no worries, problems, or fears. In short, all you see and believe in is, well, positive. I guess that’s already the most suitable word in describing this way of thinking, which is why it is the term being used.
This kind of thinking is very powerful in that if you think that you are going to pass an exam, you are going to pass; if you think that you’ll get noticed by your crush, you’ll get noticed; if you think you will get promoted at work, then you’ll get promoted. This is how powerful the mind is, particularly positive mind. Even the famous Clint Eastwood believes in this general truth that he quoted, “If you think it’s going to rain, it will.”
So, how does the power of positive thinking works? How can it create reality? Do we only have to think of positive things and then will it happen right away? That positive thinking really is powerful may be somehow hard to believe at first, that’s why we may ask certain questions like those above. Because the mind is working on the information you send it, positive thinking leads to positive reality. This is how it works. Yes, we do have to really think of positive things. But it doesn’t stop there.
Remember the ever-famous cliché “Do your best and God will do the rest”? You know, it’s true. Aside from believing in and having faith in something we want to happen, we have to do something about it. You can’t ace an exam just by sitting on the couch and watching TV days before taking it, can you?
Let us take into account again the computer as a metaphor of the human mind. The mind is like a computer, this time due to the fact that we can program it with certain functions and tasks. Sometimes, it even acts as our autopilot. For instance, we use it when we drive and talk on a mobile phone at the same time. Therefore, we can program it with whatever we want to happen.
Say, for example, you want to be attractive. Thus, you say to yourself “I can be beautiful, healthy and slim.” But for this positive thinking to work, you can’t just leave it at that. You still need to do something. You need the right self-programming:
“I can be beautiful, healthy, and slim if… (a) I’ll take enough rest every night; (b) I’ll eat proper balance diet; (c) I’ll do exercises; (d) I’ll brush my teeth every after meal; etc.” And if all these thoughts sink into your system, you’ll see that they wouldn’t be far from happening.
Mind power implies will power. With positive thinking, one does not stop with I can or I am. There will always be an I will after it in which it will cause the realization of his aspirations.
Positive thinking is a powerful tool that helps us build the life we want. It can make us beautiful and smart. It can get us the dream job with the excellent salary we always dreamed of. It can help us find our one true love. But we have to use them properly and we have to continue working with them regularly - to the point where it becomes such a habit that we ought to say them all the time. Isn’t it better maintaining such thoughts than keeping worthless ideas inside our head – the stuff we keep thinking about but doesn't really help us accomplish anything and, in many cases, may actually push us backwards?
We should also understand that some affirmations take some time to take effect. It really depends on where we are and what we want to accomplish. For example, if you're unemployed yet want to be a millionaire, well, in reality, it will take quite some time. You have to get a job first, and from there, start making the big money and earn the millions you want. Successes usually not happen overnight. So the first step is to focus on how we can accomplish our goal. If we are on the right place, plus we possess the right attitude, then it won’t be too far.
