Better Sleep Through Brain Wave Training by Patrick K. Porter, PhD

You stare at the ceiling and wait for sleep to come. You know you must get up in the morning and face another day, tired and out of sorts. Desperate, you strive for sleep. The harder you try, the further it slips away. The clock beside the bed pulses away hour after hour…one A.M., two A.M., three…

If this sounds like you, know that you’re not alone. It’s estimated that over a third of the adult population is having trouble sleeping. At times, it can feel as if you’re destined to suffer sleepless nights forever, but I’ll let you in on a little secret: It all starts with
your thoughts!

Fortunately, the field of brain wave technology now offers a drug-free solution for producing the kind of restful and restorative sleep we all need.

Brain wave training is effective because it works on multiple levels, both mental and physical, by using synchronized pulses of light and sound. The pulses, delivered through a specially equipped headset, transport people’s minds into the deepest meditative states, allowing users to experience all the benefits of meditation, including exceptional sleep, without the disciplined effort.

That may sound like technical jargon, but the bottom line is quick recovery from those sleepless nights. Twenty minutes of brain wave training can equal a few hours of sleep. That means the effects of stress and sleepless nights begin to reverse immediately.
When I invented the first portable light and sound machine and combined it with my guided visualization audios, I had no idea that 30 years later thousands of people would be listening to my brain entrainment algorithms.

Today, with the mobile app platform, just about anyone can benefit from brain wave training with just a phone or tablet and headphones. This specialized matrix of sound guides you from the brain wave state of beta, the wide-awake state, and into alpha and theta, the relaxed, meditative states. From there, your brain regains its ability to experience the deep state of delta the deepest sleep possible. We call this process braintapping, and you can experience it for free at

For those who want to supercharge their braintapping experience, the BrainTap Headset adds the dimension of light therapy through closed eyes to guide your brain through the entrainment process. This is all designed to improve your energy levels and help you return to your natural sleeping pattern.

Braintapping Accelerates These 5 Simple Steps to Optimal Health

The most dangerous health epidemic we face today is Super-Stress. This epidemic is a result of the fast-paced lifestyle in this new era of total connectivity. Stress often manifests in disorders such as ADHD, obesity, diabetes, insomnia, headaches, and high blood pressure to name but a few. When we’re under stress, our bodies pump out adrenaline and cortisol, an effect of the fight-or-flight response, which is the mechanism our bodies employ to keep us safe from injury or attack. Problems arise when the daily onslaught of stress leaves us stuck in this highly-aroused state where all resources are focused on survival.

Sadly, we’ve become so accustomed to this super-stress lifestyle that we don’t even realize the damage it’s doing to our mental and physical health. Since we can’t escape the fast-paced, high-tech lifestyle of the 21st Century, we must learn new ways to deal with the stresses of life to prevent it from causing problems for us, both physically and psychologically.

Our bodies must return to a state of homeostasis (balance) for recovery, repair and healing to take place, but few people know how to do that. Keep reading, though, because the 5 Simple Steps to Optimal Health couldn’t be easier.

Our bodies must return to a state of homeostasis but few people know how to do that

Tip #1: Breathe Deeply

Deep breathing is one of the best ways to lower stress because when you breathe deeply, it sends a message to your brain to calm the body. The stress responses that are so detrimental to our health – such as increased heart rate, increased hormone production and high blood pressure – all decrease as you breathe deeply to relax. For this reason, every audio session in our library includes deep, relaxing, guided breathing designed to bring your body to ultimate relaxation.

Tip #2: Focus on the Moment

When you are stressed and anxious, you’re most likely dwelling on a past event or a future one. You’re regretting something you’ve already done or worried about what comes next. This can cause immense stress from which our bodies need recovery time. One way to lessen this type of stress is to bring yourself back to the moment. Rather than seeing only the negatives, focusing on the moment offers you a space to think differently about stress and respond in a more appropriate manner without past regrets or future worries.

Tip #3: Reframe the Situation

When we are stressed or overwhelmed, it may seem impossible to find a positive thought, but it’s not as hard as you think. When you reframe a situation, you’re simply looking at the same situation in a new way that highlights the possibilities. Viewing our stressors as opportunities can help us stop feeling trapped and reduce the physical effects of stress on our bodies almost immediately.

Tip #4: Keep Problems in Perspective

We tend to stay in stress mode when we focus too much on a specific problem. It’s important to remind ourselves of the positives in our lives – we woke up this morning; we can see; we can walk; we have family and friends to support us. It might seem a little silly at first, but the next time you’re feeling stressed, consciously make the effort to think about the things you’re grateful for. This can be a surprisingly easy way to reduce the stress in your life.

Tip #5: Practice Mindful Meditation and Visualization

By practicing mindful meditation and visualization, you can achieve the relaxation response, a physical state of deep rest that changes the physical and emotional responses to stress. Once you enter the relaxation response, the brain sends out neurochemicals that neutralize the effects of stress on the body, allowing you to change your reactions to the stressful events going on around you. By braintapping once a day, you can reduce or eliminate brain fog and negative mind chatter, have more energy, relax and develop positive sleep habits.

Braintappers not only rediscover their innate ability to achieve deep delta sleep, but also enjoy all the benefits of brain balance such as freedom from stress, less pain, peak performance, an optimistic attitude, and an overall great quality of life.
