Introduction to Zen12 – Meditation for the Busy Individual
Meditation has been PROVEN to help us release stress, anxiety and worry, achieve a deep state of relaxation (leading to a great night’s sleep or a day of enhanced energy levels, focus and creativity), and elevate mood levels. The calm, focused state of mind achieved during meditation will often continue for MANY hours following the session.
An experienced meditator would be able to access deeper states of mind, unlocking DOZENS of health and brain power benefits, as well as increase his/her sense of inner peace and master his/her emotions.
Yet with so many incredible benefits, why aren’t more people meditating today??
Well firstly, we don’t have time, correct? 30 minutes of sitting down each day ‘doing nothing’? IMPOSSIBLE!! Also, a busy mind and restless body – that’s always a killer.
Someone I know recently recommended to me an audio meditation program that I am now using every day and recommending to all my family members and friends. It’s a set of audios (MP3s) that uses special “brainwave” sounds to meditate for you. Yes, you heard it right — it MEDITATES FOR YOU. The program is called Zen12.
One Hour of Advanced Meditation. In Just 12 Minutes.
Zen12 is a powerful audio meditation program that uses special “brainwave” sounds to shift you into a state of total relaxation. The results are instant. As I listen to it, my problems become a few shades lighter (and I am NOT imagining this!), and most times a wave of optimism would just wash over me. I would normally end the session feeling invigorated, focused and motivated – having the ‘get up and go’.
Zen12 is based on over 100 years of research into an area of science known as “brainwave entrainment”. It speeds up the meditation process by taking brainwaves down to a deep state, which would usually only be reached after a full hour of expert meditation. That means you get the benefits of an HOUR’S advanced meditation in 12 minutes.
There are no rules, no tricky sitting positions and no chanting. You don’t even need to empty your mind. All you have to do is play one of the audio MP3s, sit back, gently focus on the audio and let the MP3 do the rest. If you want to itch, or reposition your body, or even write down an idea that just came to mind, then do it! No time spent listening to these audios is wasted :).
Each MP3 lasts for just 12 minutes, so I believe you can easily fit it into your schedule. As suggested by the Zen12 quick start guide and user manual I now set my alarm 12 minutes earlier than usual and listen to it every day while I sit up in bed. I also listen to it daily before sleeping, because I found myself waking up FRESH in the morning when I do that.
Zen12 contains 12 levels, with each level designed to be listened to for about a month before moving on to the next level. I am currently at Level 2 and loving every minute of it. It is claimed that with each level, you will be able to access a deeper state of meditation, thus bringing about greater results. I can’t verify that at this moment but I can’t wait to get on to the later levels. These deeper states of mind would normally take YEARS of meditation to achieve.
If you’re anything like me, then you have a hard time letting go, and it may take you several listens before you experience these benefits. If you’re still not seeing results after a few listens, shift to Level 2 and see how that works.
A word of caution though: Brainwave entrainment technology can induce very RELAXED states that may endanger you in situations that require your attention. Do NOT use it if you are:
- Driving a car or operating dangerous machinery
- Epileptic, have a serious mental disorder, or have brain injuries (Although rare, there is a small risk of seizure associated with individuals who are epileptic)
- Wearing a pacemaker
- Under 18 years of age
There are Four ‘Flavors’ to Choose From
Each level in the Zen12 program comes in four different ‘flavors’, meaning you get 48 MP3s by purchasing the full program.
There is the Relaxation mix, which contains relaxing spa-like music. Then we have Guided Meditation, in which a guy named Karl Moore (a member of the Zen12 Team) talks you into a deep meditative state. There’s also Sounds of Nature (my favorite along with the relaxation mix), in which you can hear countryside sounds to babbling brooks. Finally there is the White Noise mix, which is a fuzzy sound that blocks out background distractions. You can listen to any of the four, depending on the mood you’re in. The brainwave magic working in each ‘flavor’ is exactly the same; it’s just the sounds/music that is different.
Cool, But How Much Do I Have to PAY???
The price of the full program is $87 (but hold on – just use the voucher code at the bottom-right corner of the Zen12 homepage to get a $50 discount). A picture of the voucher is shown below.
When you arrive at the Zen12 homepage, you will be asked to provide your full name and email address. Enter those and they will send you the Level 1 audio MP3s for FREE. You may choose to skip that (click on skip this gift at the bottom of the page) and go directly to their homepage. The voucher code should be at the bottom-right corner. Just ignore the countdown timer there, the voucher is always valid. If I have any complaints about the Zen12 Team, it is that they have a few unnecessary marketing gimmicks in their sales campaign.
You can also opt for the Beginner Zen12 Course, in which you get the 24 MP3s from the first 6 levels. I don’t recommend this because they do provide a 1-year money back guarantee, so if you’re not happy with the program after a while you can always get your money back.
Experience meditators may want to get the Advanced Zen12 Course, which gives you the 24 MP3s from the last (typo on the Zen12 site) 6 levels.
Final Verdict:- The Zen12 Meditation Program Rocks!
Again, I just want to say that I tried it, and it rocks! It really does. It’s a great way to “cheat” at meditation, and get all the benefits EFFORTLESSLY.
