This meditation music features embedded isochronic tones / binaural beats, and has been carefully formulated to help provide a solid foundation to your meditation practice. The article below will explain in detail how meditating consistently can not only lead to a significant IQ increase and boost in overall intelligence, but also reduce stress and improve mood.
The audio cycles through a range of alpha waves (8-11hz) during the first 30 minutes. The cycle then repeats one more time.
5 WAYS IN WHICH MEDITATION CAN BOOST INTELLIGENCE AND PROMOTE AN IQ INCREASE
➊ Beneficial Brainwave Patterns
Meditation results in beneficial brainwave patterns, one of which is the alpha frequency, which administered in this particular brainwave entrainment audio so that you can not only reach that state a lot quicker, but also reach deeper levels of meditation than you’ve ever experienced before. Sustained use of alpha waves can lead to enhanced creativity and an increase in cognitive functioning.
➋ Whole Brain Thinking
Meditation activates both hemispheres of the brain, allowing enhanced neural communication between the two, which results in greater cognition and processing power. When the logical left hemisphere of your brain is communicating efficiently with the right ‘creative’ hemisphere, problem solving becomes effortless and concentration multiplies.
➌ Meditation Increases Brain Size
By taking advantage of the brain’s ‘neuroplasticity’, researchers from the University of Wisconsin found that meditation increases the size of certain brain regions while also increasing the density of neural networks.
➍ Long & Short Term Memory
Meditation dramatically improves both long and short term memory, which is a major aspect of intelligence and IQ. The hippocampus and frontal lobe have both been shown to feature a significant increase in activity during meditation. By stimulating these areas, both long and short term memory increases, making your job and academic life that much easier.
➎ Emotional Intelligence
While at times we cannot control certain unfavourable external circumstances, we can certainly control out reactions to them. Many people are held prisoner by their emotional reactions, but meditation teaches you to objectify them to a certain extent, allowing you to work them through in a calm and thoughtful manner.
CONSCIOUSNESS AND COGNITION STUDY
In a recent study published by Consciousness and Cognition, it has been shown that only four days of meditation training for a minimum of 20 minutes each day improves not just mood and stress levels, but also significantly boosts cognitive processing efficiency, namely long term memory retention and sustained attention. (Note: while you can notice results in less than a week, the real benefits of meditation reveal themselves after sustained, long term practice.)
Fourty-nine volunteers were involved in the experiment. Half were assigned to a 4 day meditation training schedule, while the remaining half were assigned for an equal amount of time to listening to a book reading of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit.
Prior to the experiment, the subjects were given a number of psychological tests assessing mood, memory, visual attention span, attention processing, and concentration. This allowed the researchers to determine if any improvements in cognition or mood were either the result of meditation or simply hearing a story.
While both the meditation and reading groups noticed an improvement in mood after 4 days, only the meditation group significantly improved in terms of cognitive processing. The meditation group scored TEN TIMES BETTER on memory tasks – an important aspect of intelligence. They also averaged around ten successive correct answers, while the listening group averaged only one.
Unlike the reading task, the meditation task boosted attentive focus and concentration, and the efficiency of ‘executive processes’ – the ability to maintain focus without being distracted and straying from a train-of-thought.
The meditation group also experienced an increase in short and long term memory retrieval.
