Most of the BrainTap audio library sessions use guided visualization and relaxation. These techniques transport you out of your current space and into a new space of inner calm, peace, and tranquility. A natural byproduct of guided relaxation occurs when the muscles, ligaments, and tendons go loose and limp, thereby creating the relaxation response—the perfect state for healing.
Once the relaxation response is triggered, you immediately notice the physical benefits, such as a decrease in blood pressure, a lower respiratory rate, and a slower pulse rate. An increase in alpha brain wave activity is associated with deep relaxation, and makes for great access to what I call “the intuitive mind”—where healing is most likely to take place. The relaxation response is neurologically hard-wired. Therefore, you don’t have to “believe” it will work to experience the benefits. The relaxation response happens in the body and not in the mind.
A great example involves how life events, such as being diagnosed with cancer, are stressful. Research has shown the stress of a cancer diagnosis suppresses the immune system. To optimize the recovery process, it’s of vital importance to incorporate a program of stress reduction and relaxation. Minimizing anxiety and stress through relaxation optimizes the immune system. Guided relaxation helps patients let go of the fear, stress, and anxiety associated with their illness and, most importantly, gives them the power of positive thinking. The audio library sessions use advanced visualization designed to activate the immune system. Guided relaxation and visualization help patients deal with the following emotional states associated with diseases like cancer:
This example shows how guided visualization can help in extreme stress situations, but healthy people who regularly take the time for braintapping reap great rewards, including activating their brain’s ability to creatively visualize and imagine life as they wish it to be. These individuals have reported a number of side-benefits, which include increased energy, more fulfilling relationships, a more successful career, a sense of purpose, and last, but certainly not least, an enhanced ability to handle and manage stress.
