Here's a short and sweet 10-minute interview with Naturally Savvy, where we talk about why guided meditation is a great entry point for people who want to try meditation but aren't sure where to start! Listen Here.

Here's a guest blog post I wrote on SelfGrowth.com about drama cycles, and how you can cleanse your own drama cycles with my new app for iOS!
Someone out there owns the url meditation.com. Instead of hoarding it to themselves for only their specific products and services, they have opened it up so that people like me can create practitioner accounts and make guest blog posts. That's the spirit of cooperation and abundance that we all preach as yoga and meditation practitioners. In that spirit, I have written a guest blog post on the topic!

Think you aren’t any good at meditation? Wondering how to find the time to meditate? Too much going through your head to focus? Sit back and relax while you watch the images in your mind’s eye and connect with your higher self using this new meditation app for iOS.
As a follow up to the previous Guided Meditation Treks and Binaural apps released earlier this summer, tune into the latest release, Guided Meditation Treks Volume II. Four new spoken word guided meditations combine guided image therapy with binaural beats, soothing sounds of nature, and this time ambient music help you to work through real-life situations and improve your outlook.
"Cleanse a drama cycle” will help you work through an old pattern and use new ways of thinking. “Program a Quartz Crystal” will show you how to use your intention to metaphysically program a physical quartz crystal to run the program of your intention. “Ask Your Higher Self a Question” was the meditation that helped the author, Russell Eric Dobda, change careers. It will help you find the answer to that burning question you've been asking yourself, whatever it may be. Finally, “Send Helpful Thoughtforms to Another” is a guided meditation that will show you how to use your thoughts to help another person. Remember, thoughts are things.
This app was previously available as downloadable mp3s, but the iOS app versions allow you to control the volume levels of the individual components of each meditation to custom-tailor the sound to your preferences. Download the app or get the original mp3’s today at the Guided Meditation Treks website. These apps will help you create a space for meditation any time or any place with a smartphone.
Here's the next in my series of guest blog posts to promote my new iOS Apps for Binaural and Guided Meditation Treks V1. This one is about the technology that is behind both of them: simple sine waves. It outlines how these tones are not only fundamental to EVERY sound we hear, but also how they have been scientifically shown to induce healing and different states of consciousness!

My second guest post this week is on Brainwave Booster, hosted by another guy who is really into meditation technology. We will soon be collaborating on some future projects together! In the mean time, here are my thoughts on the placebo effect, a force that can be used for healing, as well as a force that can be used to inhibit healing. It might sound strange or outlandish, but you have the choice of how you can use it! Read More...
This week, I joined Lisa Wagner on her Epic Meditations podcast. We talked about so many great subjects in a short timeframe, including meditation, guided meditation, intention, binaural beats, and even a little bit about travel and silent disco. Give a listen to her interview me as we go deep!
This is my first of a series of guest blog posts as part of my publicity push for my new iOS apps, released this week. This article discusses the sometimes taboo subject of healers who charge for their services. This applies to any type of healer, from a musician to a clairvoyant to a yoga instructor to even those healers we don't question sending money to: doctors. The concept comes back to a simple measurement: energy exchange. Read the article on Top Guided Meditations...
Press Release: Sunday, March 1, 2015
“It is wisdom to know others; it is enlightenment to know one's self.” ~Lau-tzu
Guided Meditation Treks has released two new meditation apps for iOS.
The first is an app version of the debut album, “Guided Meditation Treks Vol 1.” Four meditations of spoken word, binaural beats, isochronic tones, pink noise, and nature sounds help you connect to your higher self. The app allows volume control of each element as you take treks to “Meet Your Spirit Guide,” “Reprogram a Counterproductive Thought Pattern,” “Heal a Relationship,” and “Manifestation.”
The second app is a do-it-yourself tool called “Binaural,” which empowers users to generate their own binaural beats and isochronic tones. The app links to a reference sheet that discusses these sound healing technologies, which have been scientifically proven to alter listeners’ brainwave patterns and reduce stress, induce sleep, increase focus, help you relax, and increase creativity. From there, users are taught about the different frequencies and how they induce different effects on the listener. By understanding this technology, users are empowered to create their own tones to use in their own meditation practice or share with others.

Here is a short lecture from the 2012 that explains in simple terms what binaural beats are, how they are used in guided meditations, and how you can create your own binaural beats using free software! It is presented by the founder of guided meditation treks Russell Dobda. Listen to the lecture...
Lucid dreaming is one category of dreams that many people experience. It occurs when the individual is dreaming and during that dream the individual is completely aware that they are dreaming. Some people report a low-level lucidity state where one is aware they are dreaming but not able to alter the content of the dream. Other people have experienced high-level lucidity where one is aware they are dreaming but are also able to alter the dream, and have the freedom to do whatever they desire within the dream.

Binural Beats are the products of two different sounds in harmony; they produce sounds that are only heard by the brain. The effect of this can be quite calming, relaxing and meditative. There are many different types of binaural beats that can suit your specific mood and also help with various ailments. Many people have said that if you are someone who generally has trouble with quieting the mind and meditation (like me), then binaural beats are likely to have a greater affect on your overall ability to reach the higher frequency states. Furthermore, studies have shown that these beats can assist with mental clarity, more focused thought patterns, increased energy, heightened creativity and many more positive changes for your overall wellbeing.
