Turn On Brain Power, Motivation, Energy, & Confidence In Just 15 Minutes

Review of Brainwave Shots

Can you imagine being able to listen to a 15-minute MP3 to turn on any mind state you want.

For example, want to experience razor sharp focus? Just listen to an audio.

Want to feel happier? Listen to that audio. More brain power? Pop in that audio.

That’s what a new “brainwave entrainment” site claims you’ll be able to do. And, apparently, they have the science to back it up.

Today, I’m going to pull back the curtains and see if their claims are the real deal – or nothing but hot air.

My Brainwave Shots Review: A Scientific Answer to Self-Help?

The Premise: Every one of your mind states or moods is marked by a distinct brainwave pattern.

If you’re feeling happy, there is a particular pattern. Feeling relaxed, that’s another pattern. Experiencing clarity and mental focus, still yet another.

The Promise: Listen to an MP3 recording for just 15 minutes and you can instantly activate any desired mind state you want.

How It Works: Brainwave Shots has apparently created a proprietary way to duplicate brainwave patterns using soundwaves.

So, supposedly, all you need to do is listen to one of their MP3s and your brain will automatically begin mimicking or mirroring the brainwave pattern of your desired mind state.

But, The Question Is: Do They Really Work?!

To find out the answer to this question, I had to try it out for myself.

So, I headed over to BrainwaveShots.com and got started. Nice site. Easy to navigate. Very professional.

The Pitch. Before I chose my Brainwave Shots from the 35 currently offered, I watched a brief video presentation that explained the science behind the technology.

After watching the brief video, I selected my Brainwave Shot from the 35 options. These include:

  • Brain power. Learning. Focus.
  • Creativity. Relaxation. Stress Relief.
  • Sleep. Confidence. Happiness. Motivation.
  • Peak Performance. Energy. Pain relief. Success.

There’s even have a party mood Brainwave Shot!

I have a really full schedule at this time of year, so I went with their signature Energy Brainwave Shot.

Getting Started: Within minutes, I had my shot and was ready to listen.

It was super relaxing and – if I’m being honest – the music was beautiful. After the 15 minutes were up, I actually didn’t want the session to end.

The Result: Relaxing or not, I wondered if listening to a 15-minute MP3 could realistically change how I felt.

I opened my eyes after the short session was up and I felt more alive, clearer, and more energized than I had in quite some time.

Really? I don’t even know how to explain it. It was like I’d enjoyed a nice, long deep sleep, then followed it up with a HUGE cup of coffee (without any of the jittery side effects of caffeine).

It might just be placebo, but I actually felt younger too.

All it took was a few short minutes and I felt like a new person. It was actually pretty incredible.

My Conclusion: I’m no scientist. But I know my own body. I also know the difference between feeling low and feeling fully energized.

The results of listening to a 15-minute MP3 were pretty impressive.

In reviewing Brainwave Shots, I was ready to expose its faults and flaws, and poke a little fun at something that seemed a little “out there”.

But, honestly? It just didn’t work out that way. Brainwave Shots actually made a difference in the way I felt, exactly as they promised.

These guys managed to turn a skeptic into a fan. Highly recommended.

Disclaimer: I did only try one shot, so I can’t speak for the other 34 of them.

UPDATE: In the last week, I’ve used the Energy Shot twice more. Each time I used the shot, the results were the same: more energy than I had just 15 minutes earlier. So, it does what it’s supposed to do. I can’t argue with that, and am about to start experimenting with more from their range.

Rating: 9.5/10. Brainwave Shots are inexpensive, transformational, quick, and easy.

Pros: Low price. Based on proven science. 365-day guarantee. Most importantly, these seem to actually work!

Cons: No telephone support. Limited to 35 ‘shots’ in total.

You Are Already Enlightened

I realize I am making a lot of statements in this book that are obviously not true. After all, how can I say that every human being on Earth is already enlightened when there are so many evil, horrible, and obviously unenlightened people all around us?

Not only that, but every spiritual path ever devised claims that enlightenment is a long arduous journey of self-discovery.

Well, that’s one way of doing it. Or you could simply ease into the reality that you are already a spiritual being living in a spiritual universe and realize that everything is already “perfect” just the way it is, with a simple change of perspective.

The Beginning & End of Humanity

A short fiction story about a man who finds himself at the beginning and end of everything.

This story is entirely fictional. The concept of artificial intelligence, mind uploading, and a future “singularity” is immensely complex, uncertain, and could go any number of ways. This story is not intended to be educational or speculative on those matters, but rather a reflection on the idea of achieving everything those matters seem to be striving towards, and what might come after.

This video comes from a very fascinating YouTube Channel which I highly recommend: Pursuit of Wonder

How to Break Out of Negative Thinking in 30 Seconds

By Nate Klemp / Inc.

You just got off the phone with one of your most important clients. The game-changing deal you were trying to close is off. They’re not interested.

You’ve just pitched 10 potential investors. They all say they’re “interested” but it’s been two weeks. You refresh your inbox hourly, and yet still no word.

How do you react in these situations?

If you’re like most people, your mind floods with negativity. “Maybe our product sucks,” “Why can’t I just get a break?” or “Maybe there’s something wrong with me.”

Neuroscientists have a name for this automatic habit of the brain: “negativity bias.” It’s an adaptive trait of human psychology that served us well when we were hunting with spears on the savanna 120,000 years ago.

In modern times, however, this habit of the brain leaves us reacting to a harsh email or difficult conversation as if our life were in danger. It activates a cascade of stress hormones and leaves us fixated on potential threats, unable to see the bigger picture.

Buddha's Brain

Neuroscientist Rick Hanson has a great analogy for this strange quality of the mind. “Your brain,” he writes in his book Buddha’s Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom, “is like Velcro for negative experiences and Teflon for positive ones.” When you lose a client, when the investors don’t come calling, or when you face the hundreds of other daily disappointments of life, you’re wired to forget all the good things and to instead obsess over the negative.

The ultra-efficient transformation of Notice-Shift-Rewire

How can we reverse this hard-wired habit of the mind?

Three words: Notice-Shift-Rewire. This simple strategy puts into into practice the core insight coming out of the neuroscience revolution of the past 30 years–the insight that, in the words of early neuroscientist Donald Hebb, “neurons that fire together, wire together.” It’s the insight that reminds us the brain isn’t fixed. Its habits aren’t like plaster. They’re more like plastic, strong enough to resist the occasional push but pliable enough to change in response to repeated effort.

That’s the magic of Notice-Shift-Rewire. By taking a moment each day to bring our attention to this practice, we build the habit of shifting out of negativity bias to more useful mind states: remembering our past wins, celebrating our strengths, and seeing life as a series of opportunities rather than a relentless slog through setbacks and heartbreak.

How do you integrate the practice of Notice-Shift-Rewire into the midst of everyday life?

1. Notice your negativity bias.
The first step is to bring awareness to this ordinary habit of the mind. Catch yourself when you slip into self-doubt, rumination, anxiety, and fear. Notice when your mind starts spinning out worst-case scenarios about how it’s all going to come crashing apart.

2. Shift to a moment of gratitude.
Noticing opens the space for carving new neural pathways. Shifting allows you to flood this space with a more productive focus of attention. A few seconds of gratitude is the most efficient way to do this. Think of one thing you’re grateful for right now. Your home. Your job. Your health. Your family. Your talents and strengths. Your drive.

3. Rewire your brain.
Here’s where the real work of begins. Hanson calls this the simple act of savoring. It’s taking 15 seconds to stay with this new mindset — to encode it deep into the fabric of your mind.

This last step is where we transform our ordinary habit of overlooking the positive. It’s where we shift the brain’s response to all the good in life from Teflon to Velcro. We’re flipping our evolved wiring on its head — taking just a few seconds to build stronger memories around all the good things happening in life.

The best thing about this practice is that it’s time efficient, portable, and powerful. It takes less than 30 seconds, you can do it anytime and anywhere, and you will begin to experience an immediate shift in your mindset.

The moment you make this shift, everything changes. You remember your purpose, look forward to new challenges, and face life with renewed optimism.

Try it once a day, every day for a week, and see what happens.
