Comments from Bob Monroe regarding the Gateway Experience
What can you expect from the Gateway Experience? As much or as little as you put into it. The exercises provide you with a set of tools - how you use them and what you do with them is your responsibility. Some discover themselves for the first time, and thus live more completely, more constructively. Others reach levels of awareness so profound that only one such experience is enough for a lifetime. Still others become seekers after truth and add ongoing adventure to their daily activity.
There is only one basis - that you seriously consider the Gateway Affirmation at the least a possibility: that you are more than your physical body, that you can and do exist in energy systems that are not limited to time-space, that you can and do communicate with intelligence beyond your physical consciousness - call it what you will.
What is Hemi-Sync?
Hemi-Sync is a patented, scientifically and clinically proven audio-guidance technology developed by The Monroe Institute and refined with over 40 years of research. Researchers learned that specific sound patterns could lead the brain to various states of consciousness ranging from deep relaxation or sleep to expanded awareness and other "extraordinary" states.
The audio-guidance process works by sending different sounds (tones) to each ear with stereo headphones. The two hemisphers of the brain then act in unison to "hear" a third signal - the difference between the two tones. This is not an actual sound, but an electrical signal that can only be perceived within the brain by both brain hemispheres working together. The result is a focused, whole-brain state known as hemispheric synchronization, or "Hemi-Sync." Different Hemi-Sync signals are used to facilitate deep relaxation, focused attention, or other desired states.
Music, verbal guidance, or subtle sound effects are combined with Hemi-Sync signals to strengthen their effectiveness. These recordings contain no subliminal messages. You are always in control.
