Could Be Exactly What You’ve Been Looking For...
going to tell you HOW to do this and try it out for FREE!
my name is Shannon Sumrall.
If you don’t
already know me, let me give you a quick introduction of who I am and what
have extensive education and experience in the personal development field.
I have a Masters Degree in Medical Anthropology, a Masters Degree in Counseling,
and I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas and Louisiana. I'm
also a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Certified Master Practitioner
and Trainer of Hypnosis, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), NLP Coaching
and Time Line Therapy™.
I have many thousands of hours of experience with the clinical use of
hypnosis, meditation, and brain entrainment.
By the way, you
often hear a lot of people list impressive educational accomplishments and
years of experience being thrown around, and I want you to know that you can
be successful without any of these. I only share my information to give you
an idea of what level of success I’ve achieved. Otherwise, why would
you want to listen to what I have to say?
The funny thing
is that most people think I must be some type of super student with all my
advanced degrees, licenses, and certifications.
what my life has REALLY been like...
was academically dismissed from Law School after suffering a serious and
life altering knee injury that sent me into a deep depression.
was so broke from my student loans I enrolled in my first Master's degree
program just to get the graduate assistant job that came with it as I couldn't
find any other work.
only job I could find after I finally graduated with my first graduate degree
(four years later) only paid $23,000 a year...
The reason I
tell you all this is so you understand that I didn’t have any kind of
“special advantages” when I started my exploration of Brain Entrainment,
meditation, Hypnosis & NLP, before I began my coaching business.
I had to figure
it out all by myself – just like you!
So what I want
you to “get” is that ANYONE can be successful using these tools,
no matter what your background or current level of expertise.
But it makes
sense that the best way to gain the skills to effectively use these tools
would be to find someone else who has already done it, and find out how they
exactly what I did.
I was so desperate
to get out of the dead end job I was in that I searched like a mad man to
find a way to change. I found several mentors and from them learned tools
to assist me in my goals. Now these mentors and tools came with a price and
in those days I definitely didn't have a lot to spare but because it was important
to me I somehow scraped up the money to attend several of my mentors trainings
and acquired several tools. These trainings showed me some of the quickest
and slickest ways to create personal change, build a successful business,
and create a happy life.
Guess what? One
of the single most powerful tools I found was brain entrainment also known
as meditation, also known as self-hypnosis. The only thing that really varies
between these is the INTENT you have as you are doing the process.
I first became
interested in meditation and altered states like hypnosis from my practice
of martial arts. I was so interested in the subject that I actually wrote
a thesis on it for my first Master's degree. To give you proof I've done my
homework in this area you can read my thesis FREE by clicking here.
After I wrote
my thesis I continued my research into ways of reaching these altered states
that seemed to offer so many benefits. I became curious about looking further
at how to influence the brainwave patterns with technology. I found and utilized
many of the available technologies for myself, my clients, and students. This
page will give you my honest opinion about these programs from my personal
experience and from the results of the feedback I constantly receive from
my clients and students.
I don't want
to get too technical or complicated but here is a quick summary of what I
discovered about the main focus of the technology. If this explanation is
not your thing and you just want to know more about what the available technology
can do for you rather than why it works and what it it does then just skip
this part I've colored it red so just scroll through it or read it at your
probably heard how brain wave frequencies vary according to mental state.
For example hypnosis and light meditation take place in the Alpha range of
frequencies. So if you listen to music containing beats at a frequency of
10 Hz it will feel very relaxing, because your brain will begin to follow
this frequency and reproduce the rhythm in the music. You will automatically
generate more brain waves at a 10 Hz frequency and enter a relaxed Alpha mental
synchronization or "brainwave entrainment," is any practice that
aims to cause brainwave frequency to fall into step with a periodic stimulus
having a frequency corresponding to the intended brain-state (for example,
to induce sleep). It depends upon a "frequency following" response,
a naturally occurring phenomenon where the human brain has a tendency to change
its dominant EEG frequency towards the frequency of a dominant external stimulus.
Such a stimulus may be aural (ie your hearing), as in the case of binaural
beats, monaural beats, and isochronic tones, or else visual, as with a dreamachine,
a combination of the two with a mind machine, or even electromagnetic radiation.
beats deserve special mention because of the intriguing manner in which the
desired frequencies are obtained. Brainwave synchronization (entrainment)
may be achieved when audio signals are introduced to the brain causing a response
directly related to the frequency of the signal introduced, called binaural
beats. Two tones close in frequency generate a beat frequency at the difference
of the frequencies, which is generally subsonic. For example, a 500 Hz tone
and 510 Hz tone will produce a subsonic 10 Hz tone, roughly in the middle
of the alpha range. The resulting subsonic tone may affect the state of mind
of the subject. The "carrier frequency" (e.g., the 500 Hz in the
example above), is noted to affect the quality of the transformative experience.
Note that this effect is achieved without either ear hearing the pulse when
headphones are used. Instead, the brain produces the pulse by combining the
two tones. Each ear hears only a steady tone.
So those are
the details of what the technology is based on so now let me ask you:
Would you like
to get the proven benefits of hypnosis and meditation without the practice
Would you like
to listen to a soundtrack, and have it take you easily and effortlessly to
a deep hypnotic or meditative state?
KNOW these days it seems we are under a constant storm of bad news about the
economy, politics, threats to our health, and natural disasters. People seem
to to be drenched in a downpour of stress, and meditation is one of the most
efficient ways to increase your stress threshold.
Our time these
days is a very precious commodity and few people can afford to expend their
limited time or patience into investing the years of practice required to
master the skill of meditation.
From the feedback
I've gotten over the years, from working with my clients and from the many
students I've trained in hypnosis and NLP, I know that you need something
that will fit into your busy life and that will be rapidly effective.
There are several
companies that offer Brain Entrainment soundtracks with binaural
beats, monaural beats, and isochronic tones, or a combination of the visual
and aural with a mind machine. I can report that from my experience all of
these products seem to consistently have some positive results. As there are
so many companys offering these products now I want to just review three of
them that offer products I have used extensively for myself, my clients, and
Monroe Institute was one of the first and they pioneered a lot
of the research and have some great products and workshops. I would certainly
recommend doing any training you can with them and they have some great
has a great initial CD program that can really have a profound impact on
your life. It was the one thing that got me over a broken heart that had
been lingering for a couple of years I just couldn't seem to clear up with
my other skill sets and meditation methods. (One caution is that their follow
up programs get into the thousands of dollars!)
Corporation is in my opinion the best of the best and the most
incredible value. The other companys mainly sell soundtracks but Transparent
sells complete software packages that include major toolkits that allow
you to create your own soundtracks and so much more. Their NeuroProgrammer,
for example, has tracks already done and included for a WIDE range of issues
from ADHD, substance abuse, headaches, insomnia, business improvement, sports
enhancement, stress relief and so much more. Their software is also compatable
to be used as a mind machine with light goggles and with biofeedback devices.
You really have to check out this company. Here are their main products:
All of these
company's websites have great information about the research and technology
behind their products. You can listen to free samples of the soundtracks that
are offered at the Monroe Institute and Centerpointe. Transparent lets you
download FREE trial versions
of their software which I seriously recommend you do NOW
to see how much stuff you get and what a true value it is. I use
with almost all my clients and teach all my students to use it in creating
their therapy soundtracks.
I really do believe in the powerful and positive impact of this technology.
I have experienced its power in clearing up past issues and with dealing with
very immediate ones. The continuing impact of this on my life can be seen
by the fact I live in New Orleans and during Hurricane
Katrina I lost almost everything...
really did like all that stuff that I lost but guess what...
am so grateful that I found and started using this technology before I went
through that life shattering experience. Without
the power of this technology I would have been a wreck but I really believe
that due to having used this technology (along with my training in NLP and
hypnosis) I was able to rebuild my life within ONE month and I doubled my
income that year!
my promise to you:
never as easy as people make out to start on your path to acheiving your
goal. Anything worth doing takes time and effort.
always obstacles and problems to overcome. That’s part of life!
- And there’s
no such thing as an “overnight rags to riches story.” People
tell you about how they went from being broke to financially free in like
a week... but it just doesn’t happen in the real world. What actually
happens is people work their ass off for months or even years, for little
or no reward, and then all of a sudden it starts to pay off.
- The brain
entrainment technology is the most consistent and easy to use technology
that actually DOES work to
make the process of achieving your goals and getting what you want much
easier and effectively than any other single tool I know.
Please look around
the rest of my website and if you find benefit from using any of the recomendations
I've made let me encourage you to come back and consider taking my training
series, in NLP and Hypnosis, as the knowledge I've gained from those fields
has also had a profound impact on my life and the positive results I've been
able to achieve. I have an online self-hypnosis class if you want to check
me out before you commit to a longer training.
Feel free to
contact me with any questions you might have.
