Cognitive rhythm exercise for brain smiling

Cognitive rhythm exercises

Three note combinations change brain patterning, resulting in a change in the belief system, triggering positive personality shifts. Low note in the center (the downbeat), then the next note out at the edge of the drumhead with the OTHER hand. Then following up with another edge note with the other hand which is hopefully the hand you started with. Then following immediately with another downbeat tone in the middle of the drumhead with the consecutive hand. Never playing two notes with the same hand in a row. After that low downbeat tone with what is probably your less dominant hand, then hit an edge note with the other hand, then final edge note with the opposite hand from which you started the whole sequence with. Repeat in slow time. This creates a flowing cooperation between brain hemispheres, that result in a feeling of well being in the participant. This pattern played as a six note phrase is common in all indigenous cultures as a powerful ceremonial and ritual dance. In America it is the Blues, march music, American Native, also African Rhumba, Afro Cuban, Celtic, Mediterranean, Brazilian, etc. This six beat is the foundation rhythm for the heartbeat. By mastering this sequence of notes, the brain makes cognitive realizations that impact the belief system and behavior. When the brain witnesses its own interference with doing this simple action, it accepts that it has to change itself. That is why it is important to do this exercise SLOWLY, so as not to create anxiety. The feeling is subtle but there can be a sense of the brain smiling.

excerpt: “History of the Groove” book two

Everything is groovy now to order “History of the Groove” on Amazon

Apparently there was only one copy of a mistaken printing going out to Amazon.



Warning for “History of the Groove”

If you ordered my book, “History of the Groove” from Amazon make sure it is the right text inside the colorful cover. The guys in the printing department were probably on Ayahuaska when they bound the cover to the text because they sent out the wrong book! The right cover but the wrong insides! (History of Federation of Women’s Clubs). Too weird.

Order it here on my website and I’ll sign it. I have good copies.

History of the Groove reviews

“What an amazing book! I think it would be a best seller if you did some editing. Such a lot of great message about society, the music biz, and above all – rhythm. Reminds me of the fun that got me into it in the first place. I’m trying to piece together all the different angles for a thorough book review..”
