Master Charles Cannon of The Synchronicity Foundation For Modern Spirituality, USA.
What is the difference between Synchronicity and other techniques of meditation?
- It’s the only one designed specifically for meditation.
- It’s the only one that has meditational soundtracks created by a Master of Meditation.
- Other techniques require more effort and take longer to show results.
What distinguishes High-Tech Meditation from “low-tech” methods?
- There is no pre-requisite, no learning, no belief required to
meditate the Synchronicity way.
- Precision meditation means greater effectiveness and accelerated results.
- You can choose the level of meditation you desire: light, medium, or deep meditation.
- You can continue with whatever meditation technique you are following and use Synchronicity alongside to meditate with greater precision.
Should one use Headphones or Speakers while listening to Synchronicity soundtracks?
- Headphones are recommended when you are sitting for
- Speakers can be used for light, ambient, meditative focus while you are otherwise engaged in work at home or in the office (or exclusively with the
Harmonic Coherence soundtrack).
What is the meaning of the Alpha, Theta and Delta levels of meditation mentioned on Synchronicity Audio CDs?
Alpha soundtrack is for light meditation. Theta soundtrack is for medium meditation. Delta soundtrack is for deep
Does one have to go through Alpha level first or can one directly to Theta level?
If you are a beginner, then you must start with the Alpha level. If you have already been practicing some form of
meditation, you can go directly to the Theta level.
Will it affect my brain if I only listen for 10 to 15 minutes?
No, there will be no adverse effect, only some positive effect. There is the ‘Time Off’ soundtrack that is called
‘The Fifteen Minute Meditator’.
Should I meditate on an empty stomach or can I meditate immediately after having food?
You should meditate on a light stomach. If meditating after a meal, wait for 30 minutes before you sit to
Do I have to listen or meditate to the Synchronicity CDs every day?
Do it whenever you feel like it. However, it is recommended you set aside some time every day to meditate.
Do I have to listen to all the CDs or can one choose any one CD from each level?
If you are a first-time meditator, start with Alpha level. If you are a practicing meditator, go to the Theta level.
If you are an experienced meditator, you can start on the Delta. Although it is best to listen to all the CDs in a particular level, you can play the one you
like over and over again.
I have already practiced Alpha level of meditation. Do I have to purchase Alpha level Synchronocity CDs again
or can I directly listen to the Theta level?
You can go directly to the Theta level. However, it is advised to also listen to some of the Alpha level CDs to get
accustomed to the technology of meditation.
Is there any age restriction for listening to the Synchronicity CDs?
No. Anyone – man, woman or child of any age - can listen to the Synchronicity CDs. Children and teenagers can listen
to the Alpha level to get accustomed to the technology of meditation.
Which are the best Synchronicity CDS in each level?
Each CD in the Alpha, Theta and Delta series serves to advance you in the process of meditation. Therefore, all are
good to listen to. However, you can play your favorites again and again.
How will I know if I’m meditating correctly/successfully or not?
- Elements of success:
- Presence (being in the here and now, in the moment)
- Stillness, detached observation, witness consciousness, holistic awareness, absence, bliss, vibration, euphoria, intoxication, peaceful,
- Observable changes in outer life (these may vary with individuals):
- Increased ability to focus
- More effective in dealing with challenges
- Increased recognition of one’s patterns and habits
- Increased harmony, goodwill, understanding
- Increased ability to manifest one’s intentions
- Greater sense of freedom and spontaneity in daily life
- Creativity, inspiration and enthusiasm
- Sense of surprise and delight
What are some of the problems people face during meditation?
- Falling asleep: If you are meditating while
lying down, sit up and meditate. If you think you are falling asleep also while sitting up, that is not sleep but, rather, an experience of absence or very
subtle-dimensional awareness. Try sitting on the edge of the seat with as little back support as possible. Sitting upright with as little back support as
possible (but without any straining or discomfort) is the recommended posture for meditation.
- Restlessness / boredom: If this occurs only occasionally – it’s normal and there’s no need to do anything about it. Just continue
meditating and observing. If this occurs frequently, it indicates imbalance in the Primary Trinity dimensions – so engage in some exercise or physical
- No time to meditate: You should try to take some time out of your busy schedule. Meditation is an investment, it’s not an
expenditure. Make the time to meditate and you will be that much more effective in life.
- Mind too active: Try some relaxing affirmations (e.g. I am calm, or repeat Om Shanti Om); do some exercise before and/or after
- Environment not quiet enough: Although a quiet space is ideal, noise is no barrier to meditation; just incorporate it into your experience. At home, take
simple precautions: keep the phone off the hook; put a ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign on the bedroom door. Let others know this is your time for meditation.
Other factors to bear in mind:
- Duration of meditation: For maximum results,
plan for an hour of meditation plus ten minutes of transition every day. Otherwise, you can meditate for half an hour (30 minutes) plus ten minutes of silence.
You could then do the other half-hour (30 minutes) at the end of the day.
- Using technology to go to sleep: Avoid the use of technology for inducing sleep. Don’t interfere with natural brain waves. If
‘Recognitions’ meditators are awake during the night, they could listen to the ‘Tranquility Soundtrack’ with headphones while lying in bed.
- Inner phenomenal experience: You may see lights, colors, visions, etc. – the subtle dimensional experience. However, this is not
the goal or point of meditation. They’re all just the by-products of the expansion of awareness and clearing; don’t expect or seek them; just watch and be
entertained. A more advanced experience is stillness, emptiness, absence.
- Synchronicity doesn’t compromise or interfere with one’s beliefs: No, because Synchronicity is based on precision technology, not
beliefs. It doesn’t matter what you believe, go by your experience.
- Timing for meditation: Best time for meditation is early in the morning, before you start your regular workday. However, if you are
very rushed, then pick the time that is convenient to you and meditate at that fixed time as far as possible.
Share your experience with others; invite them to share their experience with you:
- Experienced Meditators: Compare prior
meditative practice with the impact of starting Synchronicity.
- New Meditators: Can discuss the ease and accelerated results from starting meditation with Synchronicity soundtracks vs. more
