What to do during your sessions.



To use Shakti effectively, you need to understand something about the brain.

You don't need to understand all of it, just a bit.

You need to understand how three parts of the limbic system work together, the amygdala, the caudate nucleus, and the hippocampus.

You have two of each, one on each side.

The AMYGDALA is an emotional structure.

On the one side, it supports a broad range of negative emotions, most importantly fear (along with many other functions).

On the other side, it supports a broad range of positive emotions, such as elation (along with many other functions).

Based on previous work with the amygdala using it's signal.

The Hippocampus is a cognitive, or 'thinking' structure.

On the one side, it supports silent, non-verbal ways of thinking, positive thoughts and expectations, spatial perceptions, and several kinds of inner imaging, including imagination, visualization, and pictorial memories (along with many other functions).

On the other side, it supports verbal skills, negative thoughts and expectations, and logical thought (along with many other functions).

Based on previous work with the hippocampus using it's signal.

The Caudate Nucleus is a somatic or 'bodily' structure.

On one side, it seems to support arousal (including anger, excitement, sexual desire, and a sense of anticipation.

One the other, it supports relaxation, calm, and even lethargy.

Each of these structures has a signal that belongs only to it. The two signals appear on an EEG (An electroencephalograph. The signals that come out of these are also called 'brain waves'.)

An EEG signal is a record of an electrical signal. Shakti begins when these EEG signals are converted into magnetic signals.

The magnetic signals are applied to the head at very low strength (close to what comes out of a telephone receiver when you're holding it next to your ear.) The signals are short bursts, followed by intervals of silence.

Each signal speaks a language that only one brain structure understands.

So only the one brain part responds. It communicates with other parts, of course, and they, in turn, also start responding.

You have two hippocampus(s) and two amygdala(e), one on each side of the brain.

Shakti is applied using the structures own signal, but only over the side of the head where it supports something positive.

When these structures respond, they put the person in a positive altered state of consciousness.

Shakti uses signals derived from specific brain structures, including two taken from the amygdala and the hippocampus, and they activate these two structures, as well as areas that are naturally connected to them.

The amygdala and the hippocampus are parts of the limbic system.

The Hippocampus is a cognitive structure, and the one on the right supports positive thoughts and expectations as well as non verbal information processing.

The amygdala is an emotional structure, and the one on the left supports positive emotions.

Like Shakti (Irregular Bursts)

The Shakti wave forms are irregular. Their shapes can't be expressed with a frequency.


Not like Shakti (frequencies)

Even though we can apply the wave forms "symmetrically" (one each side at the same time), your brain probably doesn't work symmetrically. For example, if you have low self-esteem, you probably use your right side more. If you're prone to irritability, you might be more active on the left side. If you're very emotional, your amygdala's activity might offset your hippocampal activity a bit. If you think in pictures, you might have a busy right hippocampus. If you think in words, you might have a busier left hippocampus.

This means that some session designs may not be as dramatic as others for you.

The things that affect the way individual brains respond to Shakti often relate to long standing, even lifetime, personality traits. If targeted structure has a history of low activity, Shakti might produce quite a marked experience for the person.

What you experience depends on who you are and how you choose to use Shakti.

If you want to try to have intense experiences, you do one-hour sessions, no more than one every three weeks. These sessions need sensory deprivation, including silence and darkness.


If you want to try to have spiritual transformations, you use Shakti once a week, for 30 minutes at a time, for six weeks. Then, you stop your sessions for three weeks.

Now that you have your Shakti hardware, you need to know which side is which in your limbic system.


The amygdala on the left supports positive emotions,

and the one on the right supports fear.

and Usually,

The hippocampus on the right supports positive anticipations and non-verbal cognition,

and the one on the left supports negative anticipations and verbal cognition.


One or the other is 'reversed' so that functions usually found on one side appear on the other side.


To make sure your session design is good for you, you will have to run a test, but only if you plan to use signals over only one side of the brain. You don't need them if you do sessions that treat both sides of the brain the same.

There are two ways to use Shakti. Short sessions for meditation enhancement and transformation and long sessions for more intense experiences. Click HERE to learn more.
