Cultivating Moments of Insight

Insight is that “a-ha!” moment when we “get it”; that moment where we gain context, depth, and clarity regarding something that we previously thought we understood.

Recently, cognitive neuroscientist John Kounios conducted a study into the nature of insight in which the researcher observed a unique pattern of neural activity: “There was a burst of high frequency oscillations,” Kounios said, while studying the brains of people solving puzzles that require flashes of insight rather than deliberate strategies.

“Almost everyone has creative insights from time to time,” he said. “But it is possible to cultivate these moments, too. People tend to have more creative insights when they are in a happy, relaxed mood.”

One tool with which we may cultivate these moments is relaxing while listening to binaural beats on headphones. An excellent choice would be Insight, a super-powered creative insight booster! The music is calm, enveloping you in an ethereal cocoon of shifting sound and vibration created to relax you into an expanded state of awareness and openness. During this journey, the embedded binaural beat frequencies shift from a meditative theta frequency pattern to a 4 minute burst of high-frequency gamma brainwaves called the “moment of insight”, an intense shift of awareness that can open the doorway to a powerful “ah ha!” moment. Insight is available everywhere.
