The (Shiva) God Helmet is the same technology used in the famous laboratory experiments, which produced visions of God in some subjects in a neuroscience lab. Other subjects had a range of altered-state experiences, including religious bliss and out-of-body experiences.

THE GOD HELMET ®.
The God Helmet (available here) is a cutting-edge mind technology made famous by Dr. Michael A. Persinger, and seen on many television documentaries. It’s elicited a wide range of spiritual experiences, visions, out-of-body experiences, and even visions of God. There are many online videos showing it in use.
The God Helmet uses quiet magnetic signals to gently stimulate the brain, eliciting spiritual sensations, moods, and experiences. The magnetic fields are about as strong as the ones from a landline telephone speaker or a hair dryer.
It’s name was coined by a journalist who wanted to make their article about Dr. Michael Persinger’s work more interesting by giving the Koren Helmet (built by Stan Koren) a more impressive name. Although a small percentage of Persinger & Koren’s subjects did have meetings with God, most sessions in the lab created other experiences. These included out-of-body experiences, visions of an infinite ‘Void’, patterns of light, paranormal episodes, and a range of other experiences and sensations. God Helmet is the only name many people know for this technology.
These pages will try to explain as much as possible about this landmark technology, now replicated in the Shiva Neural System.
The Koren Helmet is the most important research tool in the science of understanding spirituality, especially the brain’s role in religious, mystic and spiritual experiences. Religious and spiritual beliefs are another matter, of course.
This is the first time this type of device has been available to the public, as part of the Shiva Neural System.
The God Helmet setup for the Shiva Neural Stimulation System uses four USB sound devices (included with the system) to create eight independent stereo channels. Magnetic fields cycle between the four coils on one or both sides of your head. These fields change strength every few milliseconds, so they’re also magnetic signals, with the stimulation passing information to the brain using a magnetic carrier.
It’s name comes from the fact that a small group (less than two percent) of Persinger’s subjects had meetings with God during Koren Helmet sessions. This is too small a percentage to justify the name, but the phenomenon is so striking that it seemed right to some journalists and writers. The name stuck.
The God / Koren Helmet experiments were first developed to test a theory about what happens in the brain when someone has a religious or mystic experience.

This technology feeds information into the brain through fluctuating magnetic fields, and the fields move in two ways.
One of them is fast (several times per second), and the other is very slow (happening once after 20 to 30 minutes).
The fast motion is the rotation of the fields, cycling between the four coils, placed over each temporal lobe (the area above and forward of the ears. The exact place where the field is applied changes constantly.
The stimulation moves in a circle. As one location in the brain responds, the surrounding ones become quieter, like peaks and valleys in a wave on water. Moving the location of the stimulation from one place to another makes it hard for the brain to “get used to” the signal or to “tune it out”.
The slower movement happens as the God Helmet sessions go through their two phases. The first phase uses one signal over one area, and the second phase applies another signal over a second area. Each one lasts 20 to 30 minutes, so that the sessions are forty to sixty minutes long. The “session designs” in the software that drives this technology are based on the most effective ones in the original laboratory experiments.
One signal gets positive responses from one side of the brain, and another signal gets positive effects from the other side of the brain, and this allows different sessions to have different effects, like peace and calm from one signal, and more upbeat, happier feelings from another. The differences are a lot like the way the two sides of the brain support different moods, functions and experiences.
The first phase of a God / Koren Helmet session builds up activity slowly in one brain area. The second phase shunts it into another (brain parts known to support spiritual experiences) very quickly, so that the 2nd area suddenly bursts into activity. The result is a spiritual response that would ordinarily be hard to achieve.
Each brain is different, and these differences mean the exact effects of each session can’t the same for everyone. Spirituality means different things to different people. It isn’t a “one size fits all” process. There are several sessions in the software using a variety of signals, focusing on one side of the brain or the other, so you can find the one that works best for you. Free tech support and advice is available.
A basic introduction to the God Helmet.
This is the most powerful mind technology in the Shakti family of Neural Technologies, and there are possible side effects for each session design, but only for people who have psychiatric problems, or who choose to use it unsafely. These are very uncommon, but are still described in the software on the pages for each, along with ways to stop them if they appear.
This is a safe technology, but there are a few simple safety guidelines.
Interestingly, the Earth’s magnetic field can help make your sessions more effective.

(Shiva) God Helmet Review comments and testimonials:
(Individual Results may vary*)
“I have a Shiva Neural Stimulation system and I’m very happy with it. After the first try (I used one of the God Helmet sessions) I was a little uncomfortable, but I also felt much happier and I felt a kind of flow (energy flow?) inside my body. This continued for a few days before its intensity started to fade. The next time I tried, I didn’t have the uncomfortable feeling, but one of happiness and I would say a different look at things and the world.
Over the next months I used several other sessions and found that their effects differed from one another. Some of them were more effective for me than others. The best feeling it gave me so far is the flow of happiness I mentioned before. It makes me more energetic, and I even started enjoying some tasks at work I had once hated. I also found that it improved communication with other people and made it also more enjoyable and productive. I’ve only gone through 20-30% of the sessions so far and I’m very excited about the many more positive surprises I’ll get from the system.” *
(Using a session called Modulated 40 hertz ‘chirp’ signal over both sides followed by amygdala over the left.)
“I have the (Shiva) God Helmet and have used it about 6 times now. I was interested in it for the right hippocampus stimulation and left amygdala stimulation. I have been ‘vibrating’ while awake. Having more visions and ‘seeing’ peoples auras. My … (friend)… has used it and has now seen someone’s aura. People are starting to tell him very private things after only meeting him for a few minutes. … (I’m) still ‘playing’ with it. I’m keeping a journal of my experiences. So far I’m happy I got it.” *
“I was using (…) a “god helmet” to see if it would boost my OBE experience, it did. I experienced total knowledge and connection to everything. I experienced a level of joy that cannot be explained with words. I was a globe of white light among an infinite number of other white lights. I floated as close as possible to get near the great light, it was massive, pervading everything except the space we were in.” * (Online source.)
The (Shiva) God Helmet was used in filming an episode of the television program Paranormal Lockdown.
“… one of the highlights of the new season was the use of the God Helmet, originally called the Koren Helmet, which was created to study things like creativity and religious experience. Nick (who used the Helmet) said their sessions with the helmet produced “incredible results”, adding: “It was truly an uplifting experience. It really helped me rise above the negativity of this extremely haunted location.”* (Original source.)
“… this morning I did a God Helmet session. This was a pretty intense experience. Think binaural beats or perhaps CES at a delta or theta state, but much stronger. Very pleasant overall experience with lots of very strong and colorful hypnagogic flashes. There was a peacefulness about it. The experience felt very warm and very safe. It’s hard to describe. Now I am no stranger to altered states, so my perception of pleasant might be another’s “weird” or “just too intense”. I can see why people report a presence or in some cases a sense of God. I would describe that element of the experience more like the feeling one has on psychedelics, that feeling of oneness or interconnection. I would describe it that way.” * (Online source.)
“I seem to get good visuals with the chirp signal on the right hemisphere. Using the first half of the original Koren helmet session, the chirp signal does not elicit ‘negative’ emotions in me, but rather strong imagery (for my standards) and intuitions. The amygdala signal on the left side elicits a strong feeling of well-being, affection and ‘connectedness’.” *
“Myself and a handful of others have been using this device, called a “God Helmet”, for several months now and the subjective reporting tends to cluster and lines up with what you would expect. … Stimulate the hippocampus and you’ll get into a more “wordless” space that feels much like a deep meditation for me. Stimulate the amygdala and you’ll get an improved feeling of well-being. I’m not a brain scientist or a researcher, just exploring on my own, but based on what I’ve read, the effects fall in line with expectations. The device was developed by Dr. Persinger and has been used in a number of published experiments in peer reviewed journals. … So far my experience has been very positive and surprising … * (Online Comment.)
NOTE: The “Sensed Presence” experience, common with this technology in Dr. M.A. Persinger’s lab, is less frequent with the Shiva System in its God / Koren Helmet configuration. It may have to do with the rigorous laboratory conditions for the laboratory Experiments, compared to the way people use it at home.
