It calls itself the "most powerful self-development technology on earth."
Just slip on a pair of headphones for instant energy, sharper thinking and total relaxation. At least, that's what the box says.
Yes, I'm talking about the Brain Evolution System ("BrainEv") - a 6-CD brainwave meditation program that has been taking the self-development industry by storm since its release back in 2006.
On the surface, its goals seems similar to Holosync, Optimindzation, and other similar brainwave CDs. The intention is to help lower your brainwaves - guiding you into a deep state of mind, so you can quickly enjoy the many benefits of long-term meditation.
But, as many of us have found out, many of these CDs simply don't work. They require massive amounts of time, massive amounts of cash, and can be incredibly, incredibly boring.
So was BrainEv really any better? I put it to the test.
For six whole weeks, I tried out the program. Listening for 30 minutes a day, six times a week, I gave it a truly fair trial.
Yet strangely, unlike other programs, I almost instantly felt a difference with BrainEv.
That's not really something I like to share. As a near-veteran in the self-development world, it's rare to discover something that can have such profoundly immediate effects.
However, without a doubt, after each session, I felt more in control, more focused and more relaxed.
It's hard to describe exactly: I felt a shift in my overall state, rather than feeling like a "different" person.
Within the first week, I was feeling more energetic overall. Despite typically sleeping for nine hours each night and STILL feeling groggy, I was now sleeping just six - and waking up feeling great. My mind was feeling sharper than ever before, and I could sense a greater level of awareness.
Being a closet sceptic, I tried not to credit the change to BrainEv - but there's no denying that it all started the moment I began the program.
Shifting in a few weeks, and friends began talking about my apparent new-found sense of well-being. I had close buddies comment on my "soaring energy levels" and "obvious Zen calmness." These are things that can't be scientifically measured - but are most definitely seen and felt.
The support videos, follow-up e-mail messages and online support all made the journey even more enjoyable. It's nice to see a company using modern media to communicate - rather than newsletters in the post, or long-distance telephone calls when you have queries.
After my first month, I shifted to Level 2.
Initially, those oh-so-relaxing sounds seemed much more confusing. I'd become so familiar with Level 1. Within a couple of days, those sounds became my new nirvana - and I really felt them gently working out my brain muscle for me.
Two weeks into Level 2, and I'm finding myself thinking faster than before, enjoying a greatly improved memory, feeling totally stress-free (something I could never completely do before), and being more creative and imaginative than ever.
And you know something? I did bad...
Because when I set out to review the Brain Evolution System, I had already categorized it alongside Holosync, Hemi-Sync, Optimindzation, and all of the other brainwave entrainment products out there.
But I was wrong. BrainEv is very different.
Is the Brain Evolution System truly the most powerful self-development tool in the world?
I don't know about that. But it's certainly the most powerful brainwave meditation program I'VE ever stumbled across.
My verdict: 11 out of 10!! Great program, amazing benefits, beats all the competitors. Highly recommended! A+++
