One of the most famous photographers of the most famous rock stars told me the other day that he has been off drugs ever since using light and sound mind machine technology. He uses his Deepak Chopra Dream Weaver everyday. Not only does it keep him drug free and happy, it has also helps boost his creativity. (And he earns his living off of his creativity)
I know what he is talking about firsthand. I had a drug addiction too. I was at a party and someone handed me a glass water pipe with freebase cocaine in it. I took one toke of the clinical tasting sweet white smoke and I was immediately addicted. I just wanted the pipe passed back to me, grumbling about how long other people were holding it. Over the next few weeks I smoked almost everyday. Freebase cocaine didn’t make me feel happy or provide a pleasant trip or anything nice. It just made me want more. And I got mean and stayed out till the wee hours of the morning and starting lying to people about where I had been. I am happy to say my addiction only lasted a few months but in that time it taught me a lot about what a powerful consuming negative life changing thing addictions can be.
Science has learned much about the biochemical pathways of drug addiction. A healthy body normally produces pain reducing opioids called endogenous morphines or endorphins. Your body produces endorphins when you exercise, make love or have a great meal. But opioid addictions are caused when a person takes opioids that come from outside the body like opium, morphine, codeine, heroine or oxycodone. The body recognizes that it needs a certain amount of pain to ensure it does not get into trouble like cutting off a finger or burning oneself and has the opioid receptors convert from pain reducing to pain causing. In order to eliminate that pain a person then needs to increase the amount of opioid they take. Their body reacts to that and flips the opioid receptors back from pleasure mode to pain mode. The cycle continues until the person keeps taking more and more opioids to not just get high but to avoid the horrific pain of opioid addiction.
Other addictions have a pretty similar cycle. Even non-chemical addictions, like gambling, are really chemical addictions. Especially now where the slot machines are electronic. While the odds of getting cherry, cherry, cherry or bar, bar, bar or bell, bell, bell are the same as in mechanical slot machines, the new electronic machines present cherry, cherry, cherry and then the third figure slides to bar. The person playing the machine thinking that the spin would stop on that third cherry has all kinds of internally produced pleasure causing chemicals surging through them just before the last cherry slides to bar. Swearing “I almost won” creates the same kind of biologically addictive circumstances that drug taking produces.
The best way to avoid addictions is to never start taking drugs, drinking, smoking gambling. The next way is to put your body and mind back into balance. So what is balance?
Before there were 60 cycles per second (Hertz) electric current and 20,000 Hertz florescent lights and 300 MegaHertz microwaves and 30 GigaHertz radio waves before all this technology, there was the 7.8 Hertz as the background frequency of the planet earth. Being in tune with nature meant that your brainwaves fired at 7.8 Hertz. It is not surprising that when a person’s brainwaves vibrate at 7.8 Hertz they are in a very relaxed almost dream-like state of peaceful contentment. Normally in our culture when a person is busy with a work related task, their brainwaves are vibrating at something over 15 Hertz. People who mediate habitually have brainwaves of less than 15 Hertz.
The Deepak Chopra Dream Weaver provides flashing lights, experienced through closed eyes at a frequency of 7.8 Hertz along with an oral program written and narrated by health and wellness guru Dr. Deepak Chopra. M.D. For most people the effect of this light and sound mind machine is very restful and very blissful. Depending on the program one chooses one can mediate, relax or even dream instantly and effortlessly.
This machine should not be used if you have photo-induced epilepsy and it should certainly not be used while operating a vehicle or machinery. It needs to be hooked up to a player device to play the light and sound programs such as a CD player, computer, laptop, mp3 player, smartphone or tablet.
Funny that it costs half of the price of an ounce of marijuana to provide years of deep, blissful relaxation, a full night’s sleep and for many, a life free of chemical dependency.
