The Proteus will help you to have an amazing experience. For start, pick one of the sessions that are pre-programmed, light the frames and put on the headphones, and click on the start button. The picked session will softly lead you into some other mental state by using certain patterns of sounds and colored lights that are synchronized accordingly that will stimulate your senses.
Behind your closed eyelids you can see exceptional kaleidoscopic color patterns that dance using thick washes and sound pulses. The specific combination of pulses of sound and flickering color have a certain effect on the brainwaves. Throughout the session, there are geometric patterns that are shape-shifting and color cycles while that are guiding you toward the state of mind you want to achieve.
When your brainwaves start following the frequencies, the stress from the day is released. Proteus sessions have frequencies that are mimicking those frequencies that are found in the brainwaves during dreaming, meditation, and concentration with deep focus – you start experiencing and feeling them as your brainwaves are synchronizing with the sound and lights. Your brain starts with producing more alpha and theta waves, and a lot fewer beta waves – what we usually have during busy periods throughout the day.
The Proteus was designed with the first time user in mind, so it is very easy to use. But you’ll find that there is much more than to the device than using the preset sessions as you become more familiar with its operation. There are enough features included with the Proteus to long satisfy even the most curious adventurer. From Audiostrobe technology that synchronizes special CDs that are encoded with music to the lights, to designing your own sessions with the included software, to controlling a Proteus session as it happens with your own thoughts (with the ThoughtStream – sold separately), and more – the number of possibilities are the reason so many customers become enthusiasts.
Please explore the material on our site if you’re interested in learning more about the Proteus and related technology. We are trying to make the information on our site useful for people coming from many different levels of experience, so you should be able to find anything from basic explanations to published scientific research on related technologies.

The key to a happy life, successful career, strong relationships, and a general well-being has a good self-concept. Sometimes, however, that takes work. Julia T. Wood lines out four steps to developing a good self-concept in her book Interpersonal Communication: Everyday Encounters. She says the key is making a firm commitment to personal growth, gain and use knowledge to support personal growth, set goals that are realistic and fair, and seek contexts that support personal change.
Make a firm commitment to personal growth
The first thing to do when deciding to improve self-concept is actually making the commitment to improve self-concept. It is a challenge and takes work. It’s cliché, but things are easier said than done. This means not letting setbacks prohibit moving forward and persevering through resistance.
Gain and use knowledge to support personal growth
The first thing to do is identify what the current self-concept is and determine how that self-concept came to be. The second thing need is obtaining information about oneself. There are four types of information. The first is open information, which is known to both the individual and others. The second type is the blind area that others can see but the individual can’t. This might be something like an individual believing they are weak but others seeing strength. The hidden area is the area that an individual knows about but chooses not to share with others. The last part is the unknown area that no one has discovered yet. Obtaining all knowledge possible (and asking others for more information) can be very helpful.
Set goals that are realistic and fair
People who decide to work out for the first time will go to the gym and try and run three miles the first day. They burn out fast and give up quickly. The same concept applies here. Pick small goals, and work towards them. Don’t take on too much in the beginning and add or expand goals as the first ones get mastered.
Seek contexts that support personal change
If one wants to stop partying, they might not want to surround themselves with a party atmosphere. Someone trying to learn to be independent might want to move away from parents. Create an environment that will enhance the path toward final goals. Implementing supportive family, friends, and co-workers can also help one work towards creating a self-concept.
In the end, improving self-concept must be done for the individual, not for anyone else. It’s a slow process but important. People should periodically check their self-concept; it changes over time.
