Activate the Anterior Amygdala for Limitless Mental Ability
Posted on August 21, 2011 by Visvamitra
The amygdala manages connections and responses between several regions of the brain. It's directly involved with emotional well-being, the flight-or-flight response and fear conditioning. A recent study also suggests that the amygdala plays a role in the complexity of social life. Most importantly, research has suggested that the anterior portion of the amygdala is connected to the frontal lobes. If one activates the anterior portion of the amygdala, the frontal lobes will open to limitless mental ability.
In the video, Neil Slade explains how he learned to "click" his amgydala forward, and the benefits of doing so.
Amgydala Activation with Neil Slade
The amygdala is the most sensitive structure in the brain. It's also one of the most active structures in the brain. It uses more blood than any other part of the brain, and there is reason to believe that the amygdala, in its present form, is one of the more recent deep brain structures. The human amygdala has 20 nuclei, and the amygdala of a chimpanzee has 12. For comparison, a cat amygdala has only five. The amygdala became more complicated when we emerged as Homo Sapiens, making it one of the more "uniquely human" structures in the brain.
Activating the amygdala in a positive way stimulates higher order mental processes. This can improve creativity and intelligence while also elevating positive emotions.
The opposite of amygdala activation is negative reaction. When we react to a challenging situation in a suboptimal way, it's processed as a negative emotion. This feeling is regulated by the amygdala. The emotional feedback allows us to easily determine if we are thinking creatively or just relying on survival instincts.
By noticing the difference in thought processes we can consciously control the direction which the amygdala sends its impulses.
We can choose to stimulate the amygdala forward, turning on the reward centers for positive emotions. When the amygdala is stimulated forward it's sending signals to our frontal lobes. This is where the brain handles cognitive functions such as long-term decision making and appropriate social actions. I'm sure you'll recognize the importance of these functions in life success. When the amygdala signals backwards it's inducing a fear response. In this state we operate from the base levels of instinct, residing in the reptile brain. Needless to say, thinking motivated by this part of the brain is probably not well suited for modern society.
These responses, both positive and negative, are hard wired into us by mother nature. However, because of how clever we humans are, we can consciously control our responses, taking charge of our reactions to the environment.
Stimulating the amygdala with regular practice helps us enter a psychological state of flow. In this state we tend to forget about the problems and drama of life. Being in flow can result in single-minded focus and joy from engaging in productive activity. Trivial problems don't slow you down when you are actively engaged and living creatively.
Practicing meditation, living creatively and being positive are some things we can do to improve our amygdala's responses. Certain practices may take more time and effort, but the outcome will be rewarding.
There are many simple exercises we can do to activate this positive response. Any time we engage our imaginative thought processes we're using the frontal lobes. The images in this article shows precisely where the amygdala is located in the brain. They are about 1 inch inside at the temples.
The Amgydala Technique
The crux of the program at Lingo's brain lab hinged on voluntary self-control of the anterior amygdala. Self-amygdala stimulation can be performed by using the brain's capacity for guided imagery. The following meditation is designed to stimulate the anterior portion of the amgydala. It is composed of 3 parts and lasts for about 17 minutes. Close the eyes, sit in an upright posture and listen to the recording with a good quality stereo headset.
Theta binaural to put the brain into optimal creative mode (this starts after about 30 seconds of silence)
Theta binaural continues as the background of the repetitive chanting of the mantra AUM - during this phase one should imagine the front part of each amgydala is being activated by the vibrations of the mantra, and see them glowing white, illuminating the frontal cortex
Theta binaural continues then fades to silence. During this phase imagine the frontal lobes are glowing from the illumination of the amgydala, that continue to be activated and are glowing white.
This imaging alone increases frontal lobes activity and begins increases in creativity and intelligence. The more frequently you conduct this meditation, the more pronounced the results. These changes are measurable by modern brain scanning medical instruments such as PET and MRI machines. The brain is a thought machine and one controls the brain and it's electro-chemical circuitry with simple thought. This simple meditation brings immediate results, with sometimes very pronounced effects. Overtime the results become permanent.
When a person repeatedly stimulates the anterior amygdala and voluntarily increase frontal lobes processes at will, it can eventually result in a very intense peak phenomenon known as "frontal lobes transcendence" or "popping your frontal lobes". This occurred regularly at the brain lab. Says Neil Slade "generally, this phenomenon can't be predicted exactly - more like when a soap bubble is ready to pop".
The ultimate success of the Amgydala Technique is based on the clarity of the individual's emotional and mental bodies. Ungrounded emotional and mental energies create entropy in the brain and amgydala, making it difficult for the person to succeed with the Amgydala Technique. Âtmavedî III provides the techniques for removing all ungrounded energies, so this course is an important prerequisite.
Beyond that, the amgydala must be normal to start with. If you are suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or Fibromyalgia or some chronic condition with the symptoms of these diagnosed illnesses, then you should look to your amgydala as the root cause. It is likely that you will benefit from a technique known as "Amgydala Retraining" from Dr. Ashok Gupta. Once you have gained relief from your chronic illness, your amgydala will be functioning normally, then you can benefit from the Amgydala Technique.

I came upon this site quite by accident. Once here, my interest was immediately spiked. I read all the content about the amygdala and then came to the meditation recording.
After reading about the process, I grabbed my headphones ... plugged them in and set the timer on my telephone.
I settled into my chair, placed the headphones on my ears and sat back with my hands lightly folded in my lap. I had placed a pillow on the floor under my feet and it was sitting upon a heating pad set at half, establishing a pleasant and warm grounding.
I began to follow a well-practiced method of Zen breathing by counting my breaths ...
After the first 30 seconds, I heard the audio begin followed shortly thereafter by Aaaauummmm.
I then imagined my amygdala turning white (as mentioned) in the text. And as I breathed slowly, in and out ... and focused inwardly, I began to see the faint vision of the right side someone's face from just below the eyebrow down to just below the cheek. The skin had a slightly gold cast and the of the eye I could distinguish an iris and pupil.
From the pupil there was the beginning of a faint kind of spiral galaxy that slowly morphed into a starburst that developed very slowly like dripping food coloring into a glass of water and as it dispersed, it became a very strong royal purple. And the starburst grew a bit more as though it was bursting forth like a vision into the cosmos.
At that point, my mind came in and started to question all the "this and that of it and what is it, and what did I think of it" and so on and so on until I said to myself ... "just let go and be with it." I had to do that a few times and my mind fought it the whole while but I persisted and maintained more of letting go than not. It was certainly worth the effort.
It remained ebbing and flowing like this until the chanting stopped. Then there was just the sounds of the (theta waves) and then it all ended. I sat there for a moment absorbing it all for a moment.
It was, for the first time, an interesting experience to witness.
Once I gathered myself, I downloaded the file and decided that I would begin my day tomorrow doing this again before coffee. And I think that just for the heck of it, I'll try it once or twice again through the day, perhaps once in the middle and then again once before bed.
I will make an effort to bring no expectations with me to the experience and just do it and see what develops. It may be the same and it may be very different. And it may be nothing at all.
Whichever, I appreciate the opportunity and thanks to whomever put this together.

My Yogini, Chavah Aima of Touchstone mentoring sent me this meditation after praying for me in a Houma in Austin, during a terrible time of illness. I am a severely disabled veteran, in a V,I,S,N. Who openly refuse to create for me properly. So mine is one of birth 10 disabling illnesses thwarted by injustice, though I have every insurance now available. Maya Chavah is literally keeping me alive through prayer & email guidance. Namaste to your work. It was very effective on the first meditation sir. It went right t my amygdala. Om Shanti Love & Light Sir for giving me the benefit of your work. Yours in the Eternal Light of God, Mary Kelley

I don't understand how exactly to do it. I mean
I start with a minute silence then start chanting aum and imaging something ?
Sri Visvamitra, Cedar Crest, NM, United States, November 18, 2014 at 8:45 AM
There is a meditation detailed in this article that you perform to accomplish this forward movement of the Amygdala. Did you close the eyes, sit in an upright posture and listen to the recording with a good quality stereo headset? This meditation provides imaging that increases frontal lobes activity and begins increases in creativity and intelligence. The more frequently you conduct this meditation, the more pronounced the results.
Jai Guru Dev,

This has worked for me and benefited me since my young age and it is the first time some one has explained it so very well. Thank You!
Dick, Phoenix AZ USA, April 15, 2014 at 6:24 AM
Very curious about the pleomorphism and modulation hormones and the neuroendocrine system. Thank you.
Sri Visvamitra, Cedar Crest, NM, United States, April 15, 2014 at 9:05 AM
As you probably know, pleomorphism is the concept that cells or entire organ systems or even entire entities can change form under certain conditions. Amygdala activation is not directly related to pleomorphism, i.e., the brain does not change form, but rather it "awakens" to its full potential when the amygdala is focused forward for a sustained period of time.
However, the concept of pleomorphism does apply in the techniques we employ to transform the physiology into its Satyug 12-strand DNA model. This is complex so please review my articles:
KAREN, IRVINE, CA, March 16, 2014 at 1:37 PM
I'm going to try this meditation and report back if this type works for the amygdala. Thank you!
Damein, Australia, May 20, 2014 at 1:16 AM
Did you find that this technique worked?

Brahman Consciousness represents the highest ideal for a human life achievement. Brahman Consciousness is that state of consciousness which resonates in complete harmony with the vast consciousness of the Creator. One who lives in Brahman Consciousness is literally the Divine incarnate, always acting in perfect accord with all the Laws of Nature and radiating a life supporting and uplifting influence to everyone he or she contacts.
Âtmavedi Crystals are packaged in 31 veggi caps containers, sufficient for one individual for one month. Also included in the first order is the Vedic Vortex Vitara.
Brahman Consciousness Meditation Vitara a break-through device that you can use for your own meditation sessions, one, two or more times a day, and also operate in silent mode for the rest of the time. Plus this Vitara has integrated Vedic Vitara Technology® to transmit the silent subliminals directly into the subconscious (pranamaya kosha) and unconscious (manomaya kosha) minds.
The Dasha Bhukti Yajña System is provided for us to melt current negative karma as it arises. This wonderful system, based on Vimshottari Dasha, with its 9 major periods and many sub-periods each year, tell us what negative karma to expect from the various Grahalokas during specific time periods. We can then perform the Dasa Bhukti Yajña appropriate for each period and avoid most of the negative consequences that this karma would otherwise bring into our lives. Many have performed these Dasa Bhukti Yajñas and feel the difference they make in life. The only problem is finding the time to perform the yajñas - 20 minutes a day for almost every day of the year.
The Dhanvantri is the Celestial Physician and the originator of Ayurveda, the science of perfect health. The Dhanvantri Vitara utilizes the Vedic Vitara Technology® to stimulate organ systems and heal and balance your body to structure perfect health and a Satyug physiology. Everyone should be their own physician. Your body has the innate intelligence to heal itself and keep itself healthy and strong, given proper nutrition. The Dhanvantri Vitara provides the way for you to take charge of your health and live your life in perfect health.
The God Vitara is a revolutionary device that balances the karmic traces which dominate and define the lives of most members of the human race. These karmic traces create massive limitations and restrictions on our lives and result in all of the problems life, including lack of abundance, unhappiness, disease and pain the body, reduced intelligence and creativity, and overall lack of peace.
We were made in the image of God, so why are we not living "god-like" lives? The answer to this question is karmic traces that we have inherited from our parents and ancestors. You can now rise above the restrictions imposed on you by these karmic traces with the God Vitara. There are two models of this device: Headband and Pyramid. Read about how the God Vitara will set your life free.
God Vitara Headband
The God Vitara Headband is a device you wear on your head during meditation that allows you to perceive God in your physical body and in your mind, while simultaneously balancing the karmic traces that restrict and limit your life experience to a fraction of its full potential.
What exactly will I experience?
Of course, God is always with us, 24 hours a day. But you may not experience God's Presence in your life clearly. When you place the God Vitara on your head and turn it on, then while seated comfortably with your back straight and not leaning against anything, you are ready to experience the Presence of God. Close your eyes and allow your attention to go deep within the mind and find the Silence that is always there. That Silence is your connection to God. Keep your attention on that Silence, become that Silence, view your body and mind as separate from that Silence, you are the Silent Witness that can watch the body and mind. You are not the body and you are not the mind. They are tools that you, as the Silent Witness, use to function in the physical world. The Silent Witness is your direct connection with God.
You should practice Atmavedi Meditation for best results. Begin to meditate as you usually do, and be sure to watch your mind as your mind thinks the mantra from your perspective as the Silent Witness. Notice that your mind is thinking the mantra, but you are not doing anything except witnessing the mind as it thinks the mantra.
The Goloka Projector utilizes the Vedic Vitara Technology® to project a sphere of influence into the environment that replicates the first day of Satyug. There is a profound effect of coherence, sattva and resonance frequency support experienced. The sphere of this effect is approximately 150 feet (45 meters). The benefits of a Satyug environment for the individual is to enjoy a progressive, long, and happy life, and these benefits are manifested in the Goloka Projector sphere of influence. The Goloka Projector uses primordial frequencies of the Rig Veda along with the Earth Plane Resonance Frequency of Satyug and C60 Shungite.
The Higher Consciousness Vitara is a device that combines Vedic Vitara Technology® with Silent Subliminal Technology to create a profound effect in the higher consciousness mind to actually change the karma of the individual using the device and enhance the quality of life. It is true that karma from the past lives has an influence on this life and leads us into problems with health, happiness, relationships and prosperity. But the actions we take in this life are far more powerful than the influence of karma. If we take no action to create perfect health, for example, then whatever is our karma will manifest. But if we do take appropriate action for perfect health, then we can overcome the karma and have perfect health. Acquiring and using a Higher Consciousness Vitara is the perfect action that you can take to help overcome your karma.
Krishna C60 Amrita is based on the amazing C60 molecule. This molecule is a 3rd form of Carbon, the other two being diamond and graphite, and it is a superconductor with intelligent properties. C60 is clinically proven to have many beneficial health effects in a variety of organisms. It has anti-cancer effects, brain-rejuvenating effects and cardiovascular health effects as well as extremely dramatic longevity effects in a variety of organisms. This molecule "knows" what is nourishing to the human body and what is toxic, and will adsorb (collect on its surface) all toxic chemicals or life damaging electromagnetic energy that comes in its vicinity. When taken internally as an olive oil solution, the C60 molecule becomes a semi-permanent constituent of the mitochondrial lipid bilayer of each cell, where it functions as an extremely effective antioxidant, since it is not used up and keeps getting re-absorbed in the mitochondrial lifecycle.
The MahaYajña Vitara utilizes the Vedic Vitara Technology® to create an effective shield against the assault of all personal karma, just as if the individual personally performed all of the Graha yajñas prescribed by Jyotish to balance all karma in this life.
The Moksha Vitara utilizes the Vedic Vitara Technology® to create an influence in the environment to support the meditation practices leading to Enlightenment (Moksha). This device is based on a rare and important gift to humanity from the Divine, which are His own words to us, recorded in the Srimad Bhagavad Gita. In all of the Vedic Literature, the Bhagavad Gita is one of the only places where we have the Words of Krishna recorded for us. We can utilize these sacred Words of the Bhagavad Gita as Mantras to actually create the influence necessary for us to achieve the Goal of Human Existence, Moksha.
The Nirvana Vitara utilizes a combination of Vedic Vitara Technology and Pulsed Electomagnetic Frequenies to create brainwave entrainment that evokes the experience of Nirvana during meditation and Lucid Dreaming during sleep. Also these frequencies cause the brain to enter neurogenesis mode, creating new brain cells. With the help of your Nirvana Vitara you can advance to Moksha most rapidly and utilize your time both during meditation and during sleep for maximum progress.
We all come into this life with mountain ranges of karmato our credit. To have a comfortable, peaceful and progressive life and to achieve Moksha, we must balance at least some of this karma. So we practice meditation and sadhanaand perform yajñasor obtain vitarasto perform the yajñas for us and give us enhanced karma balancing capability. All of these efforts do balance karma, and if we balance enough karma, the portal into the NOW moment opens and we begin to live in the Bliss of Moksha.
So, our main focus is on balancing karma. Then a better life and Moksha will spontaneously dawn. We have just developed a new virtual vitara that will balance significant past life karma. This will not only improve the quality of your life experience, but will give you a significant boost toward Moksha. Let me explain how this virtual vitara works.
To use the Perfect Vision Vitara to restore your natural vision is simple. Just wear the special eye mask for at least one hour a day. If you wear the eye mask for more than one hour, you should have even faster results. If you meditate, this is the ideal time to wear the Perfect Vision Vitara Eye Mask. You can also wear it at night when you are sleeping. Every few months, you should change to a weaker eyeglass prescription to allow your eyes to return to normal vision. Included with the Perfect Vision Vitara is a complete protocol for this gradual reduction in the strength of your eyeglasses.
The SSB Neurogenesis Vitara is a Vedic Vitara Technology® device that stimulates the brain to create new Satyug brain cells, and produces a wonderful experience of blissful and deeply restful sleep with an opening for Lucid Dreams. This device creates a physical stimulus in the brain that will cause the brain to switch into the Theta frequency. If this is done during a time when we are also practicing Dharana and Dhyana, we find the practice of these techniques is facilitated by this cooperation of the physical brain, and an actual experience of Nirvana is produced. If we guide the brain through the normal frequencies of natural healthy sleep patterns (Alpha, Theta and Delta), then the experience is more restful and peaceful sleep. But also because the brain is experiencing the Theta frequency for long periods of time during this guided sleep process, the brain will spontaneously create new brain cells (neurogenesis).
The Satyug Sanctuary Pyramid is a special design structure that actually simulates the environment of Satyug. In our time now, Kaliyug, the environment is minimally conducive to the development of full human potential and higher states of consciousness. However, in Satyug the environment is ideal for these aspects of life. The Satyug Sanctuary Pyramid provides an environmental chamber for a human being that corrects the weaknesses in the environment that are present in Kaliyug. Many sincere seekers of Truth have been meditating and practicing the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali for 50 years or more and have reached a plateau in their experience. Full manifestation of the Siddhis is not happening, deep transcending to the Anandamaya Kosha is not being experienced. The reason is the thick and dark Kaliyug environment.
The Shanti Vitara utilizes the Vedic Vitara Technology® to balance all current karma as it arises, allowing the individual to experience the Bliss, peace, harmony and prospertiy that naturally surrounds everyone. It is karma that blocks this experience. In addition to creating karma balancing influences with the Sama Veda, the Shanti Vitara projects a number of Dhanvantri Frequenciesto help with your spiritual evolution.
With the Soma Rasa Vitara, the Soma Rasa Meditation is effortless to perform. One simply listens to the entire 9th Mandala throughout the night during sleep. The influence generates Soma in the physiology and Soma creates changes on the level of DNA to structure a Satya yuga physiology. We have prepared a Soma Rasa Vitara for your convenience. This device will play the entire 9th Mandala throughout the night.
Water is the most important aspect of our universe to support life. All life depends on water. Naturally pure and flowing water, like that from a mountain stream, is totally different from the bottled or piped water we have today. We all prefer to drink pure, clean water. That is why bottled water is so popular in the world today.
Freshly vortexed water, or Structured Water, provides the body with some benefit. However, for full benefits, one should drink only Vedic Vortex Energized Structured Water. Only Vedic Vortex Energized Structured Water maximizes structured water’s benefit to the body. This is because water has a memory and water can be reprogrammed because of this fact.
