A Simple, Portable Device That Helps You Achieve A Peaceful Meditative State, Even If Your Mind Usually Wanders!

by Bob Olson, OfSpirit.com editor


RelaxMate II

I've written a lot of articles about experiences I've had with self-improvement and spiritual practitioners, but I've never written about a product. I guess I've never discovered one before that made such a significant impression. Now that I have found a product worthy of an article, I feel compelled to tell you about my experience using it. This is a simple, portable device that has allowed me to reach a deep, peaceful state of meditation like never before.

I must admit that Iím one of those people who knows the benefits of meditation and would love to meditate every day, but the truth is that I simply donít do it regularly. Why? Because when I do finally meditate, it seems to take me forever to calm my brain down. And by the time my mind stops racing, the music stops and Iím like, ďWhat? Itís over already?Ē Yet I usually meditate for 45 minutes. So I often wonder if it was a complete waste of my time since all I did was think, which is not very relaxing. Thatís been the gist of my meditation practice. At least until recently. 

Not long ago, my wife gave me one of the best gifts Iíve ever received. Now Melissa has given me some really cool gifts in the pastóincluding a saxophone that is far too nice for my talentsóbut this newest one takes the cake. Itís a Shealy RelaxMate II, a product that looks like a pair of sunglasses connected by a cord to an mp3 player, but itís actually a photostimulation device that delivers therapeutic light pulses for deep, fast relaxation. These light impulses quickly shift mental and emotional states so that people like me, whose mind wanders during meditation, fall into a deep state of relaxation in record time. 

I was excited to get the RelaxMate II, but if you know me, you already know that I was skeptical about its true effectiveness. Iíve tried products in the past that proved to be nothing more than a gimmick. But thatís not what happened this time. I put the mock-sunglasses on my head, closed my eyes and turned on the switch. Immediately, even though my eyes were closed, I was watching a light show. I was seeing reds and blues, or a combination of red and blue, through my eyelids, and they were pulsing at a particular frequency. I had it set for 1 cycle per second, which Iíd learned in the past was a therapeutic beat for music. Baroque music follows this beat and has been documented to have all sorts of benefits for faster learning, relaxation and stress reduction. So I figured that if the 60-cycles-per-minute beat was good going through my ears, it was probably good going through my eyes, too.

There are three time settings on the RelaxMate II, one for 20 minutes, one for 40 minutes, and one for 60 minutes. So you can choose the length of time for your meditation. As far as I know, the colors change with time, as do the pulses from one eye to the next. At least thatís been my experience. However, I must tell you that I get in such a deep state of meditation with this unit that these changes might just be in my imaginationóIím really not sure. 

The first time I finished using this machine, I was deeply relaxed after using only the 20-minute setting. When the light show stopped, I was in one of those delightful moods where the plane I was flying in at the time could have been heading towards a cliff and I would have stayed calm and relaxed. The next time I used it, I went a full 40 minutes. This time I also listened to music, which coincidentally just happened to be at the same beat as the color pulses. OhÖmyÖGod! That was a mindbender. It was like I was watching a light show that was designed to go with the beat of the music. Now I wasnít only getting the 60-cycles-per-minute benefits visually, I was getting them auditorilly, as well. I felt so peaceful when it was over, I was an instant RelaxMate junkie. 

The more often I put on the glasses, the better it got. My mind no longer wandered when I began to meditate. The pulses of light that flashed on my eyelids distracted me from focusing on anything but the colors. And before I knew it, my body was beginning to tingle into that numbing feeling that is only achieved during deep meditative states. These funky glasses helped me to experience what I thought only monks and spiritual gurus could achieve. And now I finally get it; I get what all the hubbub is about regarding meditation.

If you've studied meditation techniques at all, you know that most teachers recommend that you focus on your breathing. This is a great way to keep your thoughts on one focus rather than thinking about your bills, your to-do list and what you should have said, but didn't, at the meeting yesterday. However, people like me who live in our heads need something extra, something beyond focusing on our breath. Our minds are so busy that our ability to focus on our breathing is weak and undisciplined. That's where photostimulation has the edge. Rather than disciplining my mind to focus on my breathing, the photostimulation device commands my attention, thereby taking my focus away from my mind-chatter and onto the pulsating lights. Incredibly, what once seemed impossible now comes easy.

If youíre interested in trying the RelaxMate II, I highly recommend it. Youíll be glad to know that it uses the specific bandwidth of pulse frequencies and color chroma that were determined to be most effective in the extensive research of Dr. Norman Shealy on ďphotostimulation.Ē Photostimulation is the use of therapeutic light pulsed at specific frequencies. And Iím not the only person who loves this machine. Apparently, 30,000 people used Dr. Shealyís light pulsing machine and 90 percent of them entered a deep state of relaxation within only 10 minutes. However, according to his research, if you use it for 30 to 40 minutes per day, itís demonstrated to offer such benefits as lower stress, improved digestion, migraine relief, reduced stress-related illness, and the proper mind/body states to lower blood pressure. Not bad for a little machine that fits in your purse, briefcase or coat pocket. 

If youíve tried to get into meditation but havenít had much luck with it because your mind wanders all over the place, you might do what I did and check out this effective, yet simple, photostimulation device. Try it with and without music; they both work. To me, itís where technology meets spirituality. To others, it assists us in achieving what Dr. Herbert Benson called, ďThe Relaxation Response.Ē All I know is that itís made all the difference for me, and Iím now someone who actually meditates regularly and achieves that mind-calming, body-numbing state that I once only read about in books. 

Warmly,
Bob Olson

P.S. If youíre wondering about the cost, this is the most amazing part: The RelaxMate II costs less than two massages at a spa. Heck, less than one massage at some spas.

A former skeptic & private investigator, Bob Olson has been an Afterlife Investigator & Psychic Medium Researcher since 1999. In 1997, Bob Olsonís father died of lung cancer at the age of 64. Bob was just 35. The event ignited spiritual questions for Bob that heíd never before considered. Is there life after death? If so, what evidence exists to prove it? And, if one could prove the existence of an afterlife, was it also possible to know if our deceased loved ones exist in this afterlife, if they are okay, and if they are watching over us? Bob decided to use his skills as a private investigator to obtain answers, and this was the catalyst for Bobís investigation into the afterlife.

In his search for evidence of the afterlife, Bob has tested hundreds of psychics, mediums & other afterlife-related practitioners. Bob is the host of AFTERLIFE TV, founder of BEST PSYCHIC DIRECTORY and BEST PSYCHIC MEDIUMS, and offers his PSYCHIC MEDIUM WORKSHOP to help psychics and mediums improve their abilities and business.
