cd's for wonderful deep relaxation and meditation
Herewith, my experience with the Hemi-Medi CD.
In the past I experimented a bit with visualisations etc. and realised that this is really something for me.
While listening to the sounds of the babbling brook I noticed the following effects. In the beginning stages I regularly drift off to conversations and things I want to say and arrange. A little disturbing, but this changes after a few minutes. Afterwards, I am aware that my ability to visualise is increased. I see a dark cloud before my inner field of vision on which I can lightly concentrate. If I then think about a rose, the cloud becomes smaller and changes to a little black ball which then turns into a rose. The colours are beautiful and as the form changes spontaneously I release my concentration. The image stays more or less 5 seconds in tact before turning back to the little black cloud. You can consciously create an endless amount of images: a car, tree, bird, mushroom and so on and so forth.
In the next phase this activity stops as you move on to a really deep tranquil state in which you can almost touch the calm, so to speak. Strangely enough, I hear all sorts of noises, in addition to Hemi-Medi, that I don't find disturbing: surf, bird and whale noises discretely reveal themselves. These sounds are not on the CD. It would appear that they have been released from part of my auditive memory. At a certain moment I feel a certain 'click' in my head. A little painful but goes away quickly. Apparently, I experience an unpleasant feeling during a transition phase of the CD. I am still looking for a way to time this that isn't disturbing.
These are my experiences until now.
P.S. Don't put the CD on automatic repeat! After 2.5 hours I discovered that I had walked in a familiar area, after which I ????????????????????????????????????. (Time well spent)
From my reaction with the previous version of Hemi-Medi you can conclude that my 'conscious' visualisation was very basic.
With the new CD my experience is very different.
Finally, 2 reactions from René Bolhuis
Congratulations Wim, the 'Filosofendal' brook was really pleasant but the new recording in the Ardennen is just great. The quality is perfect, no background noise, just the sound of beautiful streaming water.
You can really feel the relaxation and also the love and conviction with which you have made the CD.
During the first half I fell asleep and in the second half
I came around.... a sort of zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.......mmmmmmmmmm.
This afternoon I listened to Hemi_Medi again. At a certain point I became aware that I had quite a lot of feelings that, together with accompanying thoughts and images, made me fairly restless. I imagined that each thought, image and feeling could rest on a leaf and effortlessly drift away with the flowing water. Finally, with nothing left to block my relaxation, I let myself also drift off in the water, just going with the flow, which felt wonderful! Ultimately, I fell asleep and when I awoke I felt totally refreshed and full of energy.
