Zen 12 meditation is unlike any traditional meditation practice. I used to try and sit on the floor for an hour and clear my mind of unwanted thoughts. However, most of the time I gave up because my bum ached, my legs cramped, and my lower back screamed in pain. And the mind chatter, WHOW, let’s not go there…..
However, I never gave up the idea of establishing a regular meditation practice. I knew the huge number of benefits achieved when practiced regularly makes it well worthwhile. So I persevered and have had an established regular practice for many years now. I did it the regular way, the hard way!
Recently I came across Zen 12, a program that is “Next Generation Meditation’ to say the least. And I wanted to share with you in this Zen 12 meditation review why I think this program is great and how it can be of benefit to new meditators and experienced meditators alike.
Zen 12 Meditation: My Review
We can get the benefits of an hour’s meditation in a shorter time by using ‘Brainwave Entrainment Technology.’ These ‘new’ ways of meditating are based on scientific research and enable the practitioner to achieve deep meditative brainwave states quickly and with relative ease. Zen 12 is ideal for beginners as well as experienced meditators who wish to deepen their meditative experience.
But first, what is Zen 12?
Zen 12 is a series of audio tracks embedded with ‘Brainwave Entrainment Technology.’ This technology enables deep meditative and healing states to be reached relatively quickly and easily compared to traditional meditation techniques.
The program has 48 different audio tracks that can use anywhere and at any time. There are 12 levels in the program. Each level has a choice of 4 different audio tracks to choose from. They each have the same brainwave science embedded into them. You can try one or all of them: Relaxation Mix, Sounds of Nature, White Noise, and Guided Meditation Mix.
The first 7 levels are all 12 minutes each. The later level progressively rises to 20 minutes each.
Each level is designed to be listened to for a month before moving on. Each successive level builds on the last and takes us into deeper meditative states. The results we achieve are accumulated and typically begin as soon as we start using the program. They include feeling deeply relaxed and at ease as stress, anxieties, and worries seem to melt away.
These audios work by replicating the brainwave patterns of expert meditators and tune our brainwave patterns to match. Therefore we are also able to achieve deep states quickly, and not waste 30 to 40 minutes trying to quieten our bodies and minds. That’s why we can achieve an hour’s great meditation’ in as little as 12 minutes.
Using traditional methods, it can take many years (or maybe never) before students can reach these deep levels of relaxation. However because Zen 12 is using brainwave entrainment technology, our minds are easily guided and it may seem the program is actually doing the meditating for us. This technology is the accumulation of over 100 years of research into the workings of our minds.
Why is Zen 12 currently the best way to meditate?
The biggest problem for someone new to meditation is often establishing the habit of doing it regularly. Meditation can be done in classes with other people who are shuffling around, coughing, and generally distracting. There may be outside noises coming in as distractions, and we have to conform to a time structure that the class is run.
I don’t see many advantages of joining classes- except if the teacher is experienced, they can impart their wisdom to us. Classes didn’t work for me back in the nineties, and I only ever meditate in groups at yoga classes with other experienced practitioners now.
More than 20 years ago, I started meditating by myself after work. I would come home from work, shower, and then lay on my bed. I would close my eyes, relax, and just let my mind wander, unchallenged for about 20 to 30 minutes.
In the beginning, not every session was relaxing, however, some were VERY relaxing for me, mentally and physically. And these are the ones that spurred me on to continue meditating.
The trick was to learn how to change my beginner brainwave states that are typically in the high range of beta or gamma. They needed to be lowered to match the proficient meditator’s relaxed brainwave states of theta and delta waves. This took me many years and countless hours to achieve by myself!
With Zen 12, new practitioners can experience benefits after the first session! The specially encoded sounds guide our minds on a gentle path of progressive relaxation. This automatically reduces our stress levels and enhances our creativity and happiness. We basically become ‘set up’ for the remainder of our day, or an amazing night’s sleep. Our self-development journey suddenly becomes much easier.
What are the main benefits of using Zen 12 for meditation?
The Zen 12 audio’s made it very easy for me to achieve a deep state of meditation in a short time. The depth of meditation was also very profound. Often I lose all consciousness awareness, only to come back sometime after the session had ended. I now use a timer that allows me to become conscious again anytime I choose- if I really need to.
The benefits of meditation have been extensively studied by science over many years. Their studies tell us what any expert mediator already knows. A shortlist of the benefits of meditating include:
– less stress, anxiety, and worries
– increased ability to focus, stick with, and achieve goals
– a greater sense of creativity (because of access to larger portions of the brain)
– the ability to remain present in ‘this moment’ instead of having our minds wander
– a feeling of peace and security develops as we intuitively understand that everything is alright
– Improved mental, physical, and emotional health and overall wellbeing
So, who doesn’t want these benefits, plus many more?
How do I get the most out of using the Zen 12 Meditation program?
The people who are the most successful are the ones who establish a routine and stick with it. This applies to business, sports, and also to meditation. Great success comes through a focus on and dedication to our goals.
And NO ONE ELSE CAN DO THIS WORK FOR US. WE EITHER MAKE THE DECISION TO MEDITATE AND IMPROVE OUR LIVES, OR WE DON’T!
If we can establish a dedicated place where we will sit or lay down and set aside a regular time each day to meditate, we are already halfway there. The good news is something that you beginners don’t know yet…. Meditation becomes easier and easier the more we do. Not only that, but it also becomes better and better to the point that we look forward to sitting down to meditate once, twice, or more times every day!
12 minutes a day, either first thing in the morning or last thing at night if repeated for some time WILL POSITIVELY TRANSFORM YOUR LIVES. And if it’s not possible in the mornings or evenings, just choose another time that you can commit to every day. It’s no big deal! Just be sure to do it.
EVERYONE HAS 12 MINUTES A DAY TO MEDITATE- IT’S SIMPLY THE BEST PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT PROCESS ON THE PLANET! And the results we achieve naturally become part of our daily lives long after the meditation session has finished. We will remain calm, relaxed, focused, hyper-aware, intuitive, etc. which all add up to us being a better all-around person – Better for us, our families, friends, work colleagues, and the planet as a whole.
I’ve tried meditating before and wasn’t successful. Will this work for me?
Many new meditators are put off by poor experiences with traditional meditation methods. Others don’t think they are achieving results, so they give up believing the practice doesn’t work, and still, others are constantly allowing themselves to be distracted.
The biggest problem is normally that they did not establish a regular practice, and repeat it for a month. Sure, traditionally, one hour is a long time to sit still when our minds are busy with events of the past and future worries. And it takes a dedicated person to follow this arduous process long enough to begin recognizing the benefits gained by learning to focus our minds.
The simplicity of Zen 12 is that all you have to do is set aside 12 minutes, hit play on your selected MP3, sit back, relax, and be guided into a deep meditative state. And towards the end of the session, the audio will gradually ‘reset’ your brainwave patterns to a more awakened state so you can easily go about your day.
Overly analytical people sometimes don’t experience immediate benefits. Because initially, they may be wary of the process and the ‘strange isotone’ sounds of the audio tracks. However, this is temporary, and because Zen 12 is built on replicable science it delivers consistent results to everyone. So, if you initially have problems, don’t worry because your brain will become accustomed to the sounds and their benefits, and will then begin to crave them.
Level one is just the starter session, and while it is deep, it isn’t the deepest. Better results are accumulated the more we progress into the program.
What is included in the program?
There are three levels of membership available. A beginners package for $67, an advanced package also for $67, and the premium package which is discounted to $87.
Brainwave entrainment provides a ‘cheat’ – a quick method of achieving those deeper meditation frequencies, without requiring years of extensive meditative practice.
By exposing the brain to stimuli (such as an MP3 audio file) containing a specific encoded frequency, the brain copies that frequency, and brings about that state of mind. Expose the brain to a frequency of 4Hz, for example, and over time, you’ll gently be taken down into a deep state of meditation. That’s exactly what happens with the Zen12 audio meditation program.
