3 minutes: Increases blood circulation.This distributes the neuroendocrine secretions throughout the body.
7 minutes: Brain frequency waves start shifting from Beta waves to Alpha (calming) waves and can continue even into deep relaxation Delta waves. At the same time, the electromagnetic field around the body increases in strength.
11 minutes: Changes the glandular system and the nerves.
22 minutes: Balances and coordinates the three minds (negative, positive, neutral). Anxiety-producing throughs in the subconscious starts to clear.
31 minutes: Total balance in the endocrinological system is achieved. This will affect the whole mind, your aura, and the body’s internal elements (earth, water, fire, air, ether). This will be reflected in changes in mood and behavior.
62 minutes: Changes the gray matter of the brain. Integrates the subconscious “shadow mind” and the outer projection.
2 ½ hours: Holds the new pattern in the subconscious mind througout the cycle of the day.
