Enhancing Meditation with Shakti
Shakti can be used to enhance meditation, yoga
and other spiritual practices. This includes other mind machines, like binaural beat technology, light and sound
devices and others.
Shakti can enhance meditation when it's done after
a Shakti session. The effect does not appear until an hour to three hours after a Shakti session ends.
However, you should not meditate
during your Shakti sessions. Meditation during Shakti sessions seems to be ineffective. In fact, some people have
reported that their meditation during sessions was a struggle, and that they weren't able to 'get into it' as they
What seems to be happening is that a Shakti session
activates your brain in one pattern, while meditation or other mind machines activates your brain in other patterns.
Meditation during a Shakti session gives your brain conflicting instructions, so that neither the session nor Shakti
have their intended effect.
When Shakti sessions are done first, and the meditation
(or other technique) is done later on, the extra activity in the brain can be directed into the 'task' meditation
offers. The result is that meditation can run much deeper than usual. The same is true for other mind development
The rule for maximum effectiveness in combining
Shakti with other techniques is "Shakti
first, and the other from one to three hours later".
Foe Vipassana and Zen meditation, both the feelgood
and the "altered states" sessions are good candidates for sessions over both sides of your head, and
the hippocampal signals over only the right side.
Devices using galvanic electricity are an exception
to this rule, which you can read about here.
