N.O.W. reduces mental noise so you can hear more of the essential you and change your life for the better. Let’s look at what I mean by mental noise and essential you –– and why you would want less of the former and more of the latter.
In the field of audio communications the term “Signal to Noise Ratio” is used to describe the sonic purity of the communications channel. The Signal to Noise Ratio or S/N, is a numeric value that tells us how clear voices or music are, and how much noise is present in the recording or transmission channel –– noise that tends to obscure the purity of the voices or music we want hear. A high S/N number is preferable to a low S/N number because the signal (voice or music) is “further away” from the “noise floor” of the system and thus more clearly heard.
A good example of the difference between higher and lower S/N ratio systems is heard in FM radio and AM radio reception. With FM radio the voices are clearer than AM radio and there is almost none of the static, hiss, noise, crackle and fading in and out heard in AM radio.
Another example of S/N difference is heard when a cassette tape recording of speech and a digital recording of the same material is heard. The cassette tape has a relatively higher level of background hiss compared to the digital recording.
So we could say that “noise” is any unwanted intrusion into the transmission or storage channel that tends to make the signal –– voices or music, less distinct and easy to hear.
Mental Noise –– Intrusive and unwanted thoughts
“I can’t get that song out of my head” … “I can’t stop thinking about what that bastard boss said to me” … “If only I hadn’t told him ‘I quit’ I wouldn’t be worrying about paying this month’s rent”.
Whether the intrusive and unwanted thoughts are about past occurrences or about events that might or might not occur in the future, these thoughts tend to obscure the essential you –– the you that is at peace, joyous and filled with potentiality and hopefulness.
We are all walking around with mental noise generators in our heads. This is the ego. The ego is a constructed identity, formed from self-identification with our past accomplishments and failures, self-identification with our place in society, self-identification with possessions, relationships, goals, job titles and all the other ephemeral forms which arise, change and eventually dissolve.
The ego, being a non-substantial constructed “self” is always striving to substantiate itself by attachment to, and identification with, forms. It doesn’t matter if the form is a thought, an emotion, a memory, a future-focused imagination or a person, place or thing. “The more forms the merrier” thinks the ego. This is how one ends up with a plethora of junk in the house and junky relationships in one’s life –– the noisy detritus of egoic striving.
If egoic rumination and obsession with a form of any type tends to create mental noise (defined here as intrusive and unwanted thoughts), what is the alternative?
The alternative is the essential you –– pure conscious being. The “you” that is “aware you are aware”, the you that can separate from, and can observe your thoughts, and most importantly … the you that is free from incessant unwanted, problematic thinking.
This is the point in the story when many folks say “But I can’t stop thinking”. Ha. Look this statement –– the “I” that says it cannot stop thinking already knows it is separate from the thoughts it can’t stop thinking. So the simple statement “I can’t stop thinking” is a tacit acknowledgment there is an “I” (signal) and a thought (noise) which are separate. The N.O.W. Tone Therapy System was created, in part, to help you effortlessly experience more of this essential you –– the you that is consciousness, and turn down the noise of incessant, unwanted egoic thought.
N.O.W. shifts your focus from past or future oriented thoughts (which, by the way, take time to think) to special sounds, uniquely created in each and every moment you listen –– sounds, heard in the present moment, and do not require time to be heard. N.O.W. helps you experience you-as-consciousness, right here, right now. And when that happens, intrusive and unwanted thoughts fall away effortlessly. The noise has been turned down. And all you have to do is listen, with intent, attentively for three minutes.
N.O.W. does the “heavy lifting” for you. The advanced aural neuromodulation signals embedded in N.O.W.’s New Origin Waveform tone sequences help create a cognitive shift from an active, worrying state of mind characterized by a preponderance of high frequency brainwave activity to a state of mind characterized by the presence of the relatively lower frequency brainwave patterns that have been shown to be correlated with an open, relaxed and aware meditative state –– the essential you, free of the problematic thoughts experienced in the body as “emotional suffering”.
Being in touch with the essential you –– consciousness, is being in touch with the source of all potential forms that can arise, this is being aware of consciousness that can design your future … that can create a New Origin, now.
Turning down the noise not only feels good, it gives you the space to design a joyous and abundant life from the power of stillness that is the essential you.
