I came to realize that success lied at the "center of my being" and could be accessed through a meditative practice that did not contradict my preexisting religious and spiritual beliefs. Rather what I believed, as well as my spirituality, reached a new height and existence. I present to you a miraculous technique from "Kelly Howell, who Body Mind Spirit magazine called 'The best voice in guided meditation.'"
A while back I wrote a piece titled Starting Over: A Zen Approach. There I wrote:
I advocate for a Zen Approach to the life and career of the solo attorney, and for practically anyone. By this I mean applying experiential learning and wisdom to attaining a solid core of enlightenment whether through Zen meditative techniques or through a series of mental exercises that not only create a consistent flow of positive thinking but also of positive energy and action.
There is a strong nexus between Howell's guided meditation and those practiced in Zen. I can state with conviction that the methodologies, mental exercises, and guided assistance offered by her are remarkable, if not mystifying. Never before utilizing such assistance have I experienced the positive outflow of consciousness afforded to me, even in practicing "less passive" methods.
Brain Sync Brainwave Therapy, which is what Howell has successfully provided to over 3 million users, works for those who are open to it. By listening to CDs or MP3s for 30 minutes to an hour a day, even when falling asleep, "brainwave technology blends advanced meditation techniques with harmonically layered binaural beat frequencies." There is science and spirituality composed in what is a fascinating harmonic fusion that triggers profound connections in the brain, where "users have experienced the powerful benefits of deep meditation to accelerate healing, learning, recovery and personal growth."
As for my personal experiences with the techniques and assistance, through The Secret Universal Mind Meditation series (parts I and II), I have been able to uniquely overcome tremendous obstacles in life with meaningful and lasting optimism. The thoughts and visions produced in me during the meditations, unlike in prayer, have evoked such a rich spectrum of inner-mind-being and external connectivity to the world around me that one needs to do the same in order to understand the experience and the results. And I must admit I was very skeptical when starting out. Yet, in almost anything learned in life one often needs a guide and teacher. Howell is able to both effectively guide and teach.
It is very hard for me as a rationalist, on the one hand, to espouse using Brain Sync. Yet the spiritualist in me, on the other, makes such a recommendation rather easy to do. Even as a Christian I sometimes hesitate to adopt something that feels contradictory. But in all of my studies into my traditional beliefs, I can see no contradictions because there is a synergy between meditation and prayer, just like how there are synergies between the scientific world and the world of faith; that is, only when one is open-minded.
If you have ever heard the saying that "We are spiritual beings on a human journey, as opposed to human beings on a spiritual journey," you may or may not have agreed. However, in our limited understanding within a 3-dimensional world the easiest position is to just rule out the spirit-component of such beliefs altogether. Thus you have strict scientific atheism which postulates that unknown things are merely not existent until proven or demonstrated. Many, many, decades of the "Scientific Age" have rested on a concept of a Godless Universe: is this the void of our epoch? The irony is that all intelligent beings desire truth; and the truth lies at the center of each of us and is relative. Truth is something that science cannot completely validate, but neither can it invalidate it. And so by design we are "hard-wired" to discover truth, which in many ways is by finding our true selves. Our spirit is off-limits and beyond the reach of modern day science. No matter who is looking and observing, our natural limitations invariably mean all vision is myopic, save for the mind's eye.
The beauty, though, of powerful and effective meditation is that the spiritual or scientific individual can appreciate what can be discovered or accomplished through harmonically influencing the mind-state. Certain sounds and frequencies are proven to change the brain and can cause positive effects. Brain Sync technology has tapped into these in an unmistakably real way.
Only if you are ready to positively change your life and mind forever, ought you to begin the methods offered by Howell. Should you have a prepared mind I welcome you to join me and many others who have started the journey.

a brief history
"First discovered by biophysicist Gerald Oster at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, Brainwave Therapy sends pure, precisely tuned sound waves of different frequencies to your brain via stereo headphones. In his EEG research, Oster discovered that when different vibrations, or sound frequencies, are delivered to the brain separately through each ear (as with stereo headphones), the two hemispheres of the brain function together to "hear" not the external sound signals, but a third phantom signal. This signal is called a binaural beat, and it pulses at the exact mathematical difference between the two actual tones. For example, a signal of 100 Hz delivered to the left ear and a signal of 107 Hz delivered to the right creates a binaural beat of 7 Hz which in this case falls into the Alpha range."

"With almost three million audio programs in print, Kelly Howell is highly acclaimed for her pioneering work in healing and mind expansion. She's the creator of Brain Sync audio technology and the world's leading innovator in the practical application of brain wave research."
brainwaves and meditation
"Until recent years, entering extraordinary states of heightened receptivity and peak performance has been attained predominantly by only a disciplined few, practicing ancient techniques such as meditation, chanting, yoga, and newly revamped versions of the mystical traditions - for example, progressive relaxation, auto-suggestion, hypnosis, and biofeedback. These techniques work. But they take long periods of practice, discipline, and sometimes a leap of faith. It is all too easy to become impatient and give up long before producing results.
In shamanic traditions, drums have long been used to transport the shaman out of his or her body into other realms of reality through the use of constant rhythmic vibrations. Researcher Melinda Maxfield, studying the Shamanic State of Consciousness, found that the steady rhythmic beat of the drum struck 4.5 times per second was the key to transporting a shaman into the deepest part of his shamanic state of consciousness.
With the invention of the EEG (electroencephalograph) Biofeedback researchers discovered that theta brain waves oscillate at 4.5 beats, or cycles, per second. In direct correlation, we see similar effects brought on by the constant and rhythmic drone of Tibetan Buddhist chants that transport the monks and even other listeners into realms of blissful meditation.
The gentle pulsating rhythms of Brain Sync audio programs act in a similar fashion, yet because the frequencies are precise and consistent they can be targeted to induce highly specific and desired brain states. Just as you can tune a radio to get a particular station, with Brain Sync technology you can re-tune your consciousness – effectively dialing your mind into a wide variety of brain states."
