A number of people
who have used this method of mood improvement have said that it
'cut off' their negativity. Something would happen that would trigger
of anger, fear or sadness and they would begin to feel the first
intimations of those feelings, but after a very brief time, they
found that these same feelings would move in a positive way, as
though they had effortlessly gotten hold of themselves in just a
second or two.
A similar effect,
though not as dramatic, can be had by applying the "amygdala
and hippocampus signals in sequence" to the frontal lobes.
The feelgood session
can create an enhancement in mood unlike anything to be had from
pills, meditation, or even a new pair of shoes.
this session has little effect on those who are already feeling
good, just like aspirin has no effect if you are not in any pain.
Equally interesting is that it can sometimes have no effect until
the morning after the session (this is very different from the action
of psychiatric medications. Taking note of this can help you understand
how this is not a treatment for psychiatric disorders). This brings
us to another point.
One of the best
guides for telling if this session will help you to feel good is
if you are at your worst in the morning. If you are not
a "morning person", then this sessions might be for you.
Feeling bad in the morning is usually a sign that the temporal lobes,
with their role in negative emotion, are out of balance with the
frontal lobes, possibly due to bad dreams or to your brain not waking
up smoothly in the morning. Your frontal lobes can still be partly
asleep, while the temporal lobes are fully awake. Although this
phenomena has been studied in clinical situations (1,
it can also happen to healthy people; people who don't have a psychiatric
This Shakti session
is not intended for people with psychiatric disorders. If you have
one, you should read THIS
page before you order. If you have a diagnosis from a physician,
and are being treated using psychiatric medications, then your mood
issues are more serious than the Shakti 'feelgood' session is intended
to address. Consult your psychiatrist or doctor before you order
the 8-Coil Shakti.
Shakti does not
diagnose, treat or prevent medical or psychiatric disorders.
The Shakti feelgood
session isn't one to induce altered states, especially the intense
kind. It's more to help you enjoy the things you do in your normal
states of consciousness. To get out of your head and into the world
that surrounds you.
It uses two signals,
not just one, and the combination of the two allows positive thoughts
and emotions to come out.
If your spiritual
life is inhibited by fear, worry, anger, sadness, or other negative
patterns, but you are not a psychiatric patient, the 8-Coil Shakti
is for you.
The feelgood session
should be done for six sessions (either weekly or every three days),
followed by a three-week break.
How long do the
effects last? The effects of one session will usually fall away
in about 3 to 4 days, and when the session is repeated once a week
for six weeks, the effects can last about six months. When you notice
that negative patterns in your thoughts and feelings return, you
can repeat a series of six weekly sessions. Let a minimum of three
weeks pass between each series of six sessions.
Shakti is a safe
technology. It's an example of 'complex magnetic signal' neural
stimulation, which has been studied in the laboratory. Click here
to see some of the research done with this class of technology using
the amygdala ("burst-firing") signal. The study done with
the hippocampal signal is here.
Another study, with both signals, is here.
Over 2000 people
have experienced this kind of neural stimulation, without any kind
of brain damage. Lab rats have been exposed to these signals throught
gestation and into adulthood, without any evidence of lesions, growths,
or other tissue damage appearing. The concern that brain stimulation
can lead to brain damage is a piece of 'media hype". Several
movies have been made showing brain stimulation with bad consequences,
but none have been made showing it's benefits. Complex (weak) magnetic
stimulation, stimulation with MRI, infrared light, TMS, and even
electricity have all been found to have worthwhile benefits. Not
all of these have been limited to clinical and medical settings.
The fear that Shakti might not be safe is not based on any actual
of this class of technology has issued an open letter about Shakti,
attesting to it's safety, which you can see here.
The testimonials page has some reports from the 'feelgood' session.
