What is Neuro Training

Neuro-training was "invented" by the Swedish psychologist Lars-Eric Uneståhl in 1969 and is widely used in the sports world. The idea was to make top athletes perform even better by working with them mentally. Today, everyone can use it and a significant effect has been demonstrated, regardless of what you use the mental training for. This is due to a combination of the state you get into during the training, but also the active ingredients: Suggestions and Conceptions. When you neuro-train, you are in the alternative consciousness - a deeply relaxed state where your brain waves operate at alpha and theta frequency levels. Mental training or not, this state is good for all of us as it gives the brain a chance to recover. We know the condition from when we are on our way to and from our sleep, but this is often too short-lived for us to get the full benefit. If you are not used to sinking into the alpha-theta frequency, we recommend that you start with the "Physical relaxation" program for 2-3 weeks, as well as "Neuro Basic Training" for 1-2 weeks afterward. This will make your concrete mental training exercises more effective because you can get down to the alternative state of consciousness faster. Why is mental training so effective? Imagine that you stand in front of the mirror and tell yourself that you are fantastic, but you quickly get the answer back from your conscious self: "No, it doesn't fit, I've always been told that I wasn't". The conscious voice does not get in the way when you neuro-train. Because it is turned off, there is better access to your beliefs in your subconscious and you can better overwrite them, should that be your desire. When you hear suggestions and imaginings in the alpha-theta frequency level, it will only be your subconscious that hears it and stores it. You can therefore work here with the 'unfortunate' self-images you may have, in a much quicker way than when you stand wide awake in front of your mirror. The suggestions you add through the mental training are designed so that they go in and 'cancel' the unfortunate self-images and replace them with more beneficial ones. This means that these positive imaginings train your brain so that what you want to achieve actually happens.

Getting Started

Neuro training really requires very little. You don't need to sit in a special position or be 100% awake - and it will definitely change your life for the better. All you have to do is listen to at least 1 training program at least 1 time a day for 3-4 months - that's all. You will most likely already start to feel the small changes after a few days, maybe you will fall asleep faster, become more relaxed, have a bigger 'shit' button, and be happier with more energy. Here is a guide on how to get the most out of training according to research in the field: - Lie down or sit somewhere where you can be at peace, put on earphones, and then start the program. - You can train at any time of the day and anywhere, the most important thing is just to do it when you feel like it most. - If you are not used to meditating or 'switching off' mentally, you should start with Physical Relaxation until you feel that your body is naturally relaxed - and not only when you exercise. - After this, you can start with the Neuro Relaxation file, until each time you experience disappearing into a place where there is a 'thought void', or where your thoughts are not disturbed. It can take 1-4 weeks to get there, again depending on how trained you are. It might not always work - that's ok, and it's also ok that you fall asleep during the exercise - it will still work, as your subconscious will still receive the suggestions. - If you can now disconnect both in your mind and your body, you are ready to continue with the training and your specific training program - the most important thing is that you do what you want when you want. Don't be demotivated by the fact that sometimes you will have days when the experience is better than others or you will have brain clutter, it takes time and will slow down - the only important thing is that you get it done. - The good news is that you will most likely find it nice and pleasant and you will want to do it every day. But because retention is important, here are some tips on how you can remind yourself to get mental training every day:

Tips to maintain your training

1. If it suits your life rhythm, find a fixed time of day when it suits you best to establish a new habit.

 

2. Get a close friend, colleague or family member to hold you to your commitment. Preferably every day!

 

3. Train with someone else so you can share retention strategies and experiences.

 

4. Write a short diary where you note your progress, for example, the last thing you do before You go to bed.

 

5. Set your alarm clock for the time you have decided to train.

 

6. Exercise first thing in the day before doing anything else.

 

7. Exercise as the last thing you do before falling asleep. (And when the program ends with that say: "You are fresh and fully awake", so remember that a suggestion is a suggestion that you can only make cancel by saying to yourself. "No, I'm tired and just want to sleep on".)

 

8. If you fall out of the good training loop, remember that it is not a failure, but completely natural. Think back to what you did when it worked best for you, decide what need to get it working for you again, and get back on the horse.
