The flow state is an altered state of consciousness in which we feel our best and perform our best. Once you've learned how to access it, you can apply it to cricket and all areas of your life. Research has shown that those who learn how to access flow are the happiest people in the world! Kinda makes sense to check it out , hey? ;-)
If you look at the TELL diagram to the right, and specifically at the brainwaves section, you will see that when you are in flow, your brainwaves will have gone down into the low alpha/high theta range. If you learn to follow the TELL process without the accompanying flow training, your brainwaves will probably follow the red line and you won't access the flow peak performance state. It is still hugely beneficial to make the basic TELL routine a habit. Accessing flow is what all the fuss is about in other sports and in certain major corporations.
Below you will find the audio that begins many of my programs and is all about accessing an altered state of awareness. It's done by lowering your brainwaves from the beta brainwave range to low alpha/high theta. It is the gateway to flow!
It's a relaxation audio. It has been developed by me over the past ten years and involves two intertwined backing tracks to enhance your relaxation experience. You can play it from this webpage or download it onto a device.
Before you begin listening to the audio, I'd like you to think of a scale from zero to 10. Zero is completely stressed out and 10 is completely relaxed. What number are you now? Remember that number. And at the end of the audio, think of that scale again and the number you have got to. I was working with a client a few years ago and he started at 4 and at the end he said he had got to 25! :-)
Find somewhere comfortable to sit or lie down.
Make sure you've got headphones.
Make sure you won't be disturbed for half an hour or so.
Definitely don't listen to the audio whilst driving or operating heavy machinery!
You can download the audio to a device or listen to it directly from this webpage.
The audio takes you to a place where you build your ideal property..... your dream home in your dream location. This becomes a place where you can return again and again.... to relax.... or to do a variety of processes to support you in getting the most out of your life.
What we can use this space for is virtually limitless.
We all have huge inner resources which we can learn to access..... and this audio is the beginning of that journey.
It is the first step in learning how to access your peak performing flow state.
It lasts about 30 minutes so sit/lie back, turn the audio on and enjoy!
