Watch your step buying the new low cost hearing amplifiers

The cost of hearing aids has dropped considerably because of competition from low cost hearing amplifiers. These $100 hearing amplifiers now look remarkably similar to $3000 hearing aids, but they do not provide equalization adjustment. Some have preset settings for quiet and noisy environments, but most amplify all sounds and do not allow you to tune them for specific environments

As an example, the Phonak hearing aid shown here sells for $1899.







This Neosonic amplifier sells for $279










This Britzgo amplifier sells for $79

Britzgo Digital Hearing Amplifier – Battery Saving Hearing Device Aid Your Life – Energy-efficient, Personal Amplifier & Digitally Controlled.




All three are similar size and sit behind the ear and all three will amplify sounds. You can buy the amplifiers on Amazon and you need to read the reviews carefully, because about 17% of amplifier buyers are disappointed with their results. The units do not work or they whistle or they are sold by intermediary sellers who do not allow returns.

If you understand the limitations of a hearing amplifier, you may get the hearing help you need. You will find that using one in a car will be frustrating, because they pick up road noise and in a restaurant you will pick up all sorts of extraneous sounds. on the other hand, you will be able to hear your significant other when they ask you to do something and you will not be saying, “What?” and driving them crazy.

One more caution, there is one site which is reviewing the Neosonic Hearing Amplifier Mini RIC and is showing the price of a cheaper model. This site is very misleading and if you run across it do not click on the Buy for Best Price link as it will take you to another Neosonic model. It appears the reviewer did not do his homework.

The real link for buying a Neosonic Hearing Amplifier Mini RIC is here.

I feel these amplifiers will fill the bill until they come out with a fully programmable hearing aid for under $500 where you can control the behavior of your hearing aid from an app on your smart phone. My estimated release date is late 2020.

Good luck with your purchases and let me know if you find a better value.

Some High Points from the 4-14-19 Sunday Webinar

Joachim Held summarized some of the things we discussed during last Sunday’s webinar and made me realize how important this latest discovery is. I am restating his summary with the addition of my own thoughts and you are all invited to add your own realizations to this effort.

1. No matter where you are in relation to the rest of the universe you occupy, you will have greater control of your existence if you take the time to recognize the intentions and counter-intentions that others are experiencing.

2. The counter-intentions that others show to your peaceful existence may have more to do with the pressures they are experiencing from above or from other sources.

3. Each level in a civilization and in a universe has its own rules and its own challenges. Understanding the rules of other levels will give you an ability to make the right decisions for your own survival.

4. If you fully understand their motivation, you can become pan-determined if you wish. When that occurs, your frustration and bitterness at the unthinking cruelty of the world will vanish. You will see what is and you will be able to devise a plan for converting what is to what you desire it to be.

5. When any level is not pan-determined, they do what they think is best for themselves and their people. When they fixate on a solution to the ills that they see, their solution wreaks havoc on the rest of civilization. Every tyrant is trying to accomplish something for the people he feels he represents.

6. Since every level in a civilization is a series of interlocking lives, any solution that does not take into account all of the other lives and work to the resolution of mutual problems will eventually build resistance such that this solution will be considered evil and will eventually be destroyed.

7. The only hope for a peaceful resolution is to maintain open communication, no matter what provocation exists, without losing control of your own group.

8. If separation from the other group is required to continue your existence, maintaining open communication is essential to your continued freedom. In addition, you will need to ensure that your existence is not a threat to the group you have separated from.

9. These lessons from history are available to every practitioner of Spiritual Rescue Technology, because we can communicate with those beings who tried to solve these issues in other ways and failed miserably. Every day we communicate with those who struggled against the constraints of the unfairness of the lives they lived and we find that are still enmeshed in the unfairness of it all.

When we help them discover that they chose a role that came ready-made with overwhelming opposition, they perceive the decision that led to their current and everlasting distress. Inspecting the fatal decision and all of the justifications for making that decision allows the beings involved to let go of the decision and all subsequent results.

We can sum this up by saying, “If a being considers that life is unfair, he doesn’t understand the rules for that part of the universe. Once you understand the rules, you can leave the game or change the rules.”

Free Workshop – Some Ways to Make Others Happy

1. Please read Try Making Others Happy before going on.
2. Refresh your memory on what Caring Communication is and what it does. Caring Communication is the exchange of information between living beings with the intent to help the other being achieve a higher state of existence.
3. Making the other person feel important is one way of making them happy. Cheerfully asking a person their name and introducing yourself will raise a person’s emotional tone level. In many cases, this is all that is needed to make a person happier then they were before.
4. Noticing something about the person and complimenting them on it can make a person happy.
5. Showing interest in a person will often make them happy.
6. Asking them what they do and acknowledging the importance of their work will often make people happy.
7. If you ask enough questions about them and their history to establish a reality on who they are and why they are important, you will remember them and they will remember you. This is not a mechanical activity. You must be interested in them and in learning about them for this to make them happy and to make you happy. Your intention is to determine if you can become friends and to engage in conversation until you have established enough common interests that you will attempt to remain friends.
8. This is not something you have to do with everyone you meet, only the people who you wish to be friends with. You do not have to do this all at once. A simple introduction to some one you will be seeing often like a cashier in a supermarket can be followed by expanded conversations each time you meet the person. It will not be long before the person will smile and become happy when you appear before them. Every transaction with this person will raise their tone level and yours as well.
9 If you can do this simple exercise with people you meet on a daily basis, you will soon be able to do this effortlessly with clients and people you do business with.
10. Once you learn how to make people happy and can do it without effort, you can learn to recognize when the person is resisting your efforts to make them happy and adjust your expectations of doing business accordingly.
11. People who resist your efforts to make them happy are not in good shape and they make poor business or life partners. Handling this kind of relationship will be the subject of the Sunday webinar.
We will be discussing and drilling ways to make people happy in this Saturday’s free workshop. Join me on Zoom at 12 noon using this link: .
