 Information for Consumers

Shiva Neural Stimulation Technology (“Shiva”) is an example of “rotating” Complex Magnetic Neural (God Helmet) Stimulation, which, prior to Shiva, has only been used in laboratory settings. The windows-software based approach used with Shiva allows many possibilities not yet researched or described in the scientific literature, and some of them are included with this software. There are studies that demonstrate that these signals, about as strong as the ones from a (land-line) telephone handset, do not have adverse effects on brain tissue or cells.

However, some sessions are expected to have unpleasant effects for many people, and are openly discussed as such throughout the session pages. Other sessions do not use potentially unpleasant session components. Read the information for each session carefully.

If unpleasant after effects happen for you, contact brainsci@jps.net for tech support.

Some signals have not been used in the God Helmet prior to Shiva, and one has had only user testing (the modulated 40 hertz ‘chirp’), though it’s based on principles which have been well-tested with other complex magnetic signal technologies.

Headaches have been reported with complex magnetic signal technology. These have not been headaches in the usual sense of the word. These have been described as a feeling of pressure rather than as pain in most cases. Shiva is too new for data on this subject to have been gathered, but a previous version of complex magnetic signal technology showed low rates for headaches (more info). Most of these have been associated with the hippocampal signals, and have been alleviated using common headache remedies and have occurred with a few sessions before they stopped happening.

It’s important to be very careful with any session designs you might create for yourself. The manufacturer strongly suggests that you not develop your own session designs, both for safety and for effectiveness. However, there are always a few individuals who will disregard this suggestion, and in the event that unwanted effects occur, they are advised to ask for advice from Shiva’s tech support.

All units are guaranteed against defects in workmanship for one year, and may be returned for a replacement. Contact tech support prior to returning yours to be sure a replacement is called for. All units are tested prior to shipping.

Order HERE. Sacred Pathways is the Principia (“book of basic principles” or “first work”) of the scientific investigation of spiritual experiences. … Individuals who appoint themselves protectors of “true knowledge” may find this book disquieting.” – Dr. M.A. Persinger
“In this book, Professor Todd Murphy recounts what he has discovered about the brain’s role in religious and mystic experience; findings that interested readers will no doubt find illuminating” – H.H. The Dalai Lama

1.5% reported them occurring briefly during sessions. 2% reported minor or subtle headaches after sessions. 4% reported sensations that were like headaches, but were not unpleasant. 3% reported ordinary headaches following sessions. If you experience headaches using this technology, lower the volume (field strength) by one third.  This has proved to be the simplest way avoid them.
