The InnerTalk Approach:
Whole Brain Hemispheric Synchronization
A Patented Shadowing Technology
In a very real sense every human being has two brains. These two brain hemispheres are commonly referred to as the right brain and the left-brain. For the vast majority of people, the left hemisphere is the analytical brain, and the right hemisphere is the spatial brain. The left hemisphere is in charge of such things as mathematical and language skills, while the right hemisphere is the creative and emotional center. The right hemisphere is indiscriminate, while the left is the logic and reason center with defense mechanisms such as rationalization built around logic and reason. Most researchers assign logic and conscious reasoning to the left hemisphere and emotional and subconscious learning to the right hemisphere.
InnerTalk appeals to both hemispheres in a brain friendly manner.
Whole Brain InnerTalk technology appeals to the two hemispheres appropriately according to the primary hemispheric function. (See the MIP paradigm described in detail in Thinking Without Thinking.)
The left-brain then is interested in literal correctness while the right is more interested in overall associations or relationships. It is believed that the left brain views language literally and according to the rules of language while the right brain views language spatially and emotionally, tumbling the words in a process called subconscious cerebration and even seeing the words as our eyes see the world - upside down.
Some heavy metal recordings have included subliminal messages (usually satanic, drug or sexual in orientation) for years. These messages appeal directly to emotions, causing behavior to override reason. They are also recorded in reverse, a process known as meta-contrast or back-masking. Reversing, or playing backwards subliminal messages in heavy metal music appears to excite emotional expressions and responses often viewed as right brain in their origin.
Reviewing the research, Progressive Awareness Research (PAR) developed the patented InnerTalk programs using an entirely new (electronic encoding) process. On one channel, accessing the left brain, are meaningfully spoken, forward-masked, permissive affirmations delivered in a round robin manner by a male voice, a female voice and a child’s voice, as appropriate. (Research shows that individuals may respond more favorably according to their preference of male, female or child voices.) On another channel directive messages, in the same voices, are recorded in meta-contrast. Since the hemispheres are task oriented both the left and right brain become involved according to their specialties. The channel differentiated messages shadow each other from conscious recognition.
Simple communication practice shows that an individual is more likely to remember a round robin like “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” than a simple song, even if the song is heard many more times. The round robin affirmations are recorded in echo-reverberation giving rise to a singing effect.
All you have to do is listen, no special attention is necessary.
Although earphones are helpful, they are not necessary. What is necessary to making the programs work is to listen to them. The more exposure to the programs, the faster results are obtained.
