Frequently Asked Question about the MindFit System
How do I experience MindFit at Treat Yourself Wellness Centre?
You can use the MindFit System on its own or you can add the MindFit to your Ion foot Cleanse session or BioMat therapy session.
What is the MindFit Light & Sound Device?
MindFit is an extraordinary new technology that delivers gentle pulses of light through special glasses. These lights synchronize with tones known as binaural beats to produce deep and profound relaxation. While research has proven that both flickering light and synchronized tones can produce relaxed states, combining the two takes the body to a more profound level of relaxation; it is a state of tranquility that is optimum for healing, focus, and accelerated learning. And, because a twenty-minute session simulates a sleep cycle, it can be the equivalent of four hours of sleep. If you want to get more done in less time, MindFit is a must-have device in your life!. The MindFit is considered a portable achievement device. It uses CVR (Creative Visualization & Relaxation) sessions that are encoded with ZenSync technology to gently guide the user from the wide-awake state into the optimum learning state. Each MindFit system has a mini computer called the "ZenSync Decoder," which converts the ZenSync encoded signal embedded within each CVR session. The user is guided through the brainwave entrainment process designed specifically for that session. Your MindFit system will work with whatever device you normally use to listen to music as long as it has an audio output. Any iPod®, iPad® MP3 Player, Smartphone that plays MP3s, or your home computer or laptop will work with the MindFit.
What is CVR and Brainwave Entrainment?
Simply put, creative visualization/relaxation (CVR) is the process of reaching deep levels of relaxation and then using guided visualization to form mental images. Visualization it is the primary component of the imagination and is at the core of the human ability to create, innovate and dream.
Brainwave entrainment, also known as visual/auditory entrainment, uses light, sound, and relaxation to help you de-stress and live life more fully. People who regularly use brainwave entrainment learn to operate in the best brainwave mode for creativity, focus, and concentration. If you are the type who likes to get things done, brainwave entrainment can transform you into a mental powerhouse with the right mindset, focus, and energy to accomplish just about anything.
Many of history's inventors and artists attribute their success to an exceptional ability to visualize. Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, Henry Ford and the great composer, Chopin, all reported using creative visualization to spark their imaginations. Additionally, Albert Einstein once said that he came up with the theory of relativity by imagining what would happen if he could travel through space on the tip of a light beam. Creative visualization can transport you out of a state of stress or fear, and into a new space of inner calm, peace and tranquility. A natural by-product of creative visualization occurs when the body goes loose and limp, thereby creating the relaxation response - the perfect state for learning, healing, or focusing on goals.
What Are Brainwave Frequencies?
In order to overcome the brutal effects of stress, you need to get out of the fight-or-flight response and into the relaxation response. The relaxation response can't happen as long as you generate high beta brainwave activity. Your brainwave activity must dip into alpha, the intuitive mind, or theta, the inventive mind. Many believe that theta is the optimum state for creativity and that it's the only mode in which one can make a quantum leap in consciousness. Unfortunately, theta mode is difficult to maintain. This is where the frequency following response comes in; it keeps your brain engaged. By using the ZenFrames, your brain is being trained to generate more alpha and theta waves and fewer beta waves.
Four Brainwave Frequencies
BETA 13-30 Hz: This is the wide-awake alert state where you spend most of your waking life. Beta is your reactionary mind. It is the level of your mind where fears, frustrations and negative emotions are processed. This is also where your strongest filtering system operates. It is called the critical factor. The key purpose in using the ZenFrames is to train your mind to get out of this state where stress is dominant.
ALPHA 8-13 Hz: This is the frequency most associated with creativity, imagination and flow. Alpha is the intuitive mind. It is also the brain state associated with relaxation, tranquility and daydreaming. Flow thinking, or a state of "inward awareness," takes place in alpha. It is also known as a super-learning state.
THETA 4-8 Hz: This is the breakthrough state where you can reinvent your life. Theta is the inventive mind. It borders on sleep and is a meditative state with access to the other-than-conscious mind where you have higher levels of creativity, learning, and inspiration. It is also the state in which the ZenFrames help you to visualize and realize your goals.
DELTA 1-4 Hz: This is deep, dreamless sleep. Delta is the unconscious mind. The ZenFrames is designed to keep you from falling into this state of sleep. This is why the light and sound patterns of the ZenFrames system continue to change throughout the session.
What are the benefits of using the MindFit system?
Creative visualization and stimulation of brainwave activity are among the most studied areas of psychiatry and psychology. The following results have been demonstrated through numerous documented studies and in Dr. Porter's experience with hundreds of thousands of clients:
- The right and left hemispheres of the brain become more balanced.
- Blood flow to the brain increases, resulting in clearer thinking, better concentration, improved memory, and enhanced creativity.
- Serotonin levels increase by up to twenty-one percent, which calms the mind and body and creates an overall sense of well being.
- Endorphin levels increase by up to twenty-five percent. These are the hormones that flow through the body when we feel happy. Endorphins provide the brain with alertness, are a natural anti-depressant, provide relief from pain, and create pleasurable and loving feelings.
- The majority of users of the PorterVision family of products report stress relief through deep relaxation, better sleep, improved memory, improved learning skills such as concentration and recall of information, emotional stability, a sense of calm, increased focus, lucid dreaming, and increased physical energy. We are always researching these benefits with our users and partners in the field. Please be aware that while CVR and ZenFrames are designed to help you reach your full potential, we cannot guarantee your results. Please understand that results will vary from person to person.
Is it safe?
Absolutely. The only known side effects are improved memory, better sleep, focus, concentration, and reduced stress. However, flashing lights have been known to cause problems in people who suffer from serious medical conditions like epilepsy, seizure disorders, brain injury, or photo sensitivity. If you have any of these concerns, you should ask your medical professional if light and sound technology is right for you.
Who Can Benefit from MindFit with Zen frames and CVR Technology?
Anyone who is not sensitive to flashing light can benefit from MindFit technology. The MindFit, used in combination with Creative Visualization & Relaxation (CVR), creates a potent tool for creating laser-like focus and enhanced performance. The light intensity on the ZenFrames is adjustable, so those who have minor light sensitivity can almost always find a setting that's right for them. For those diagnosed with light sensitivity or seizures they should not use the Zen frames due to the flashing lights, but they can still benefit with the MindFit experience of the CVR processes and binaural tones.
What Happens During a MindFit with Zen Frames/CVR Session?
With the ZenFrames glasses (that resemble sunglasses) over your closed eyes and headphones over your ears, you are immersed in a perfect mixture of light and sound frequencies. Your eyes will be treated to a beautiful light show while you listen to specially designed music and the guided visualization process. This all combines to enhance your experience and invite a higher degree of alpha/theta brainwave activity.
Some people may experience colorful geometric patterns while others may lose track of the lights completely. The light and sound pulse rate shifts from wide- awake beta to a dreamy drowsy state of theta as the session progresses. Using the science of frequency following response (FFR), your brainwave activity will follow the pulse rate of the ZenSync system. At the same time, your conscious mind rehearses the changes or improvements you desire for your life. What is most important is that you are quieting the mind,
What is Frequency Following Response?
The frequency following response (FFR) is the effect created through synchronized light and sound. It's how the brain "syncs" to the strobe lights and binaural beats. While your brain follows the frequencies, you experience less inner chatter and improved concentration. After a few weeks of regular use, most people gain a sense of balance and inner calm. Users report feeling serene, focused, and alert even when faced with high-pressure situations.
What are Bin-aural Beats?
Bin-aural beats are two separate tones of a slightly different pitch. One tone is presented to the left ear and the other to the right ear. Your brain combines the two tones to make a single new tone. The single tone pulses to match relaxed brainwave frequencies. Your brain follows the pattern and creates a relaxed state that is optimal for learning, problem solving, and self-motivation.
How Important is the Music and Sound?
The best brainwave entrainment is auditory as well as visual. Environmental sounds and music have been used for centuries in almost all cultures to create an altered state of consciousness. For example, native tribes used drums, chants, and environmental sounds like wind and rain to provide strong mental pictures and associations. There is a reason we find it relaxing to sit by the ocean and listen to waves crashing to shore or the sound of a stream as it trickles over rocks. These pleasant sounds tend to naturally generate alpha brainwave activity.
In today's frenetic culture, though, we rarely get to enjoy nature's relaxing effects. For this reason, Dr. Porter has personally encoded each session so that on a daily basis you can get a perfectly synchronized experience similar to that which nature provides. Plus, because the program is encoded into the digital MP3 file, you can use any of today's high quality music players, such as the iPod or iPad, to ensure the best possible experience.
The music you hear on every PorterVision process was composed specifically to complement the alpha/theta brainwave entrainment. The music is designed to create a full 360-degree experience that floods your mind with beautiful images and peaceful thoughts.
Why are Green, Blue or White LEDs Used Instead of Incandescent Lights?
Light emitting diodes, also called LEDs, are solid-state devices that convert small amounts of safe electrical energy into light. They can be switched on and off much faster than incandescent lights, producing the crisp strobe-like pulses most effective at inducing the frequency following response needed to guide the user through the brainwave states. The blue, green or white LEDs were chosen for their pure cool color. Our operational research showed that users prefer the blue, green or white effect through closed eyes more than any other LEDs available. It is important to note that a person who is prone to seizures should not use the light portion of the MindFit with ZenFrames system and just use the CVR sessions with their favorite MP3 Player.
Is CVR Effective Without the ZenFrames?
Creative visualization and guided imagery have been around for decades. These are scientifically proven modalities for behavior modification, pain relief, and self-improvement. Now they are made even more effective with the added benefit of brainwave entrainment through the ZenFrames technology. While there is a wide assortment of relaxation training systems, such has autogenic (self-produced) training, progressive relaxation, meditation, and biofeedback to name a few, most of these take conscious effort. With the breakthrough of the ZenFrames, you don't have to "believe in" or "do" anything. You are immersed in the experience and don't have to create it.
What is it Like to Experience CVR?
One of the best definitions of CVR came to Dr. Porter from a satisfied client, who said, "CVR feels like my body fell asleep, but my mind stayed awake." CVR is a natural state, very much like sleep. In CVR, you are provided information that you want to apply when you are awake. This is called anchoring your vision to your timeline. It works like writing yourself a sticky note and posting it somewhere to remind you later.
Most people who want to make a change in their lives have the best intentions in the world, but the reality is, we get what we rehearse in life, not necessarily what we intend. Through CVR you rehearse the new behaviors, attitudes, and beliefs you want and create in your mind a timeline for success. During your CVR sessions, you visualize new responses to old behavioral triggers. Then, when you encounter the old triggers, you'll simply "forget to remember by remembering to forget." As your new responses take hold, you'll be convinced that you can be tobacco-free, or lose weight, or change any negative behavior. It's that easy!
Can Everyone Use CVR and the ZenFrames?
Generally speaking, any person can achieve alpha/theta brainwave states and can benefit from CVR. However, the sessions are recommended for persons with an I.Q. of 70 or above. Persons with severe mental disorders should not use the ZenFrames. Flashing lights have been known to trigger seizures in certain cases. While this disorder is rare, people who have a seizure disorder of any kind should not use the lights. These people can still benefit from CVR without the lights. If you are unsure, ask your doctor before proceeding.
How Will I Know I've Reached Alpha or Theta?
Everyone's experience is unique. No two people experience the same feelings or sensations while using the MindFit system. You might experience lightness, heaviness, or a tingling sensation. You might even feel your eyelids flutter. Sometimes, as you release tension, your body might jerk or twitch. All of these are indicators that you are experiencing the alpha/theta state the MindFit is designed to create.
How Does CVR Produce Such Amazing Results?
The CVR system is designed to program behaviors so they become natural, unconscious, and automatic. You know how to drink water. You know which foods are more natural for your body. You know what exercise is. You already have these abilities. Our focus is not to give you these abilities but rather to give you a response to those abilities, creating responsibility. This is the purpose of CVR; it gives you the skills for responding to your own abilities. CVR provides the motivation, the determination, and the drive to succeed. It's a common experience that what the mind thinks about the mind brings about. The MindFit system helps you to get into that powerful state where you can impress upon your mind the results you want in life.
What if I'm Afraid of Losing Control?
Our culture teaches us to strive for control in our lives. However, what we think is control can quickly shift into stress, fear and anxiety. You are actually in more control while you are in the alpha/theta states because you gain discretionary access to your other-than-conscious mind, allowing you to tune into your thoughts, feelings, and emotions on a deeper level. With the help of the MindFit with ZenFrames and the CVR programs you choose, you will gain focus while creating positive habits and behaviors, which mean you finally gain the kind of control you really want.
Is it Safe for Me to Drive After a CVR Session or After Using the MindFit with Zen Frames?
Yes, it is safe for you to drive after a CVR session or after using the MindFit with ZenFrames. You will likely feel refreshed because you have been on a mental vacation. When you come out of the relaxation state, you will feel positive and recharged, as if your entire being has changed. If you feel a little groggy at first, simply have a refreshing drink of water and take a couple of deep breaths. Most people feel the same as awakening from a nap.
Can Children Use the MindFit with ZenFrames or CVR?
As long as the child can sit still in a chair for 10 or 20 minutes, the "Enlightened Children’s Series" can be of benefit. We have children as young as five years old listening to these CVR sessions before bed and getting great results. The "Accelerated Learning Series" can be used by teens and adults alike.
How Soon Will I Notice Results?
Over 90 percent of those trying the ZenFrames for the first time report feeling refreshed and energized right after the first process. While individual results will vary, smokers who want to quit often do so after listening to just one of Dr. Porter's Smoking Cessation processes. Of course, Dr. Porter encourages everyone to listen to the full series to make sure their results are permanent. Those using the Weight Loss Series often notice habit changes, such as a reduction in cravings or a desire for water, right after listening to the first process. Golfers regularly report feeling more relaxed and confident the first time out on the course after listening to Dr. Porter's Mental Coaching for Golf processes.
