Did you know that the conscious part of our brains can only handle about 40 bits of information per second, while our unconscious minds can process 11 million bits of information per second? It’s true, and it’s the reason nearly all communication happens at an unconscious level. At BrainTap Technologies, we know that tapping the brain’s peak potential takes full access to those 11 million bits, and that’s why we employ several techniques to engage the powerhouse that is your unconscious mind. As an example, several of the BrainTap audio-sessions include a technique called Dual Voice Processing. The listener hears a second voice coming through one side of the headphones and then the other. This is not a mistake. Dr. Porter intentionally recorded the sessions in this way to provide your brain a full holographic experience. The second voice moves from right to left and back again to stimulate right and left hemisphere balance, thus engaging more of the brain’s potential. At first, most people will try to listen to both voices simultaneously, or try to focus on one or the other voice entirely. This process happens through the conscious mind; it’s the 40 or so bits of information per second you become consciously focused on. But, after a few minutes, these same people find their minds drifting, and they begin focusing only on the words and phrases that apply to them – the brain is filtering those suggestions out of all the information that is being delivered. Next, as the mind drifts and dreams even more, the rest of the millions of bits of information start flowing past the conscious mind and become imprinted into the subconscious, waiting to be used as new patterns and behaviors. But that’s not all. There are two more benefits to dual voice processing. First, it helps to bypass the critical part of the mind – the “chatter box” that accompanies our waking state. Dual voice processing produces a gentle overload that leads to a deep state of relaxation, ideal for the absorption of the positive suggestions that are conveyed in each session. The second additional benefit of the dual voice is the development of special linguistic structures to ensure ideal suggestions are presented. These specific patterns enhance the process of learning and change. Dual voice processing can be successful in increasing the amount of material learned in a given time or reducing the amount of time necessary to learn new material. Even though this dual voice processing may seem a little disconcerting at first, don’t worry, your brain will adapt quickly. The good news is, you don’t have to consciously listen to any of the voices, so just relax and let it happen. Want to give it try?
