The standard versions of the amygdala and hippocampal signals have a significant
"latency" a blank (or silent) period between the actual signals. It's about four seconds long. Although
this four seconds silence is based on the same laboratory work that discovered its effectiveness, removing these
latencies creates an opportunity to enhance the effectiveness of these signals, at least for some people. Before
using these signals, you should use the more standard versions.
"Rapid" means the signals have no silent intervals between the signals.
The "blips" in the signals are the normal length. "High-speed" signals have no silent intervals,
and their 'blips' are 1/3 the length of the standard ones.
If you have tried several different Shakti signals and have been unable to get past "dud" sessions, these
can provide a worthwhile alternative. In addition, they can be useful for eliminating unwanted effects. In particular,
the hippocampal signal with one msec between points (High-speed) works out better where age or other causes leaves
a person with memory deficits or difficulty in concentrating. If you have already had successful sessions with
the amygdala and hippocampal signals, you can try these as an alternative. You should not use these in your very
first sessions using Shakti, but instead use the standard ones.
Each of these signals, unlike the standard ones, have either one or 3 msec "points"
(blips). They are called points as though they had been "plotted", even though plotting does not apply
to Shakti signals. For reference, you might like to know that the standard signals have 3 msec points. Signals
with one millisecond points have the same shape as the standard signals, but are presented in one-third of the
time. You can think of them as "high-speed" signals.
Each brain is different, and there have not been enough studies with these signals
to predict who will and who will not find them more effective, although they have been tested in laboratory settings
for safety. It's a matter of personal experimentation and preference with these alternative examples of the amygdala
and hippocampal signals.
In addition to these, the amygdala and hippocampal signals are also presented
in sequence, one after the other. With the standard signals these two together have elicited some very positive
Compared to other signals in the Shakti software, these are less well tested.
If you are not comfortable with less well tested signals, do not use these.
The more intense stimulation offered by these signals makes it a good idea to
use them with a bit more caution. If you notice more intense effects, make very sure to observe breaks between
series of sessions. A good schedule would be three or six sessions, 72 hours apart, with a 21-day break between
series of sessions. Stop your sessions and email for tech support in the event of unwanted effects.
