Brainwave Entrainment has been around for over 70 years, so it is not just a passing fad. Also known as brainwave synchronization, it is a technique that synchronizes your brainwave frequencies with an external stimulus, usually sound waves.
The brain cycles through different brainwave frequencies every day, and each frequency corresponds to a different level of consciousness. For example, your brainwave frequencies when you are awake are completely different from your brainwave frequencies when you are sleeping.
By listening to Brainwave Entrainment audios, you can alter your brainwave frequencies in order to reach a desired level of consciousness. For example, if you need help falling asleep, you can synchronize your brainwaves into the frequency that corresponds to sleep. Another popular reason for using Brainwave Entrainment is to help get into a meditative state.
Brainwave synchronization is possible because the brain has a “frequency following” response. This phenomenon occurs because the brain naturally changes its dominant EEG frequency to correspond with the dominant frequency of an external stimulus.
The most common stimulus used in Brainwave Entrainment is sound waves. Two popular modes of audio Brainwave Synchronization are Binaural Beats and Isochronic Tones. I will discuss these in more detail later.
The History of Brainwave Entrainment
Brainwave Entrainment dates all the way back over centuries ago to Shamanic societies that used drum beating to enter relaxed states. In recent times, scientific studies started to examine this phenomenon and experimental methods were developed to test it out. In 1973, Gerald Oster made an important discovery when he developed Binaural Beats.
In 1981, Isochronic Tones were shown to be effective in a study published by Arturo Manns. His studies were confirmed by others, and these studies continued into the 1990′s in order to explore the potential use of brainwave synchronization to treat ADD and other learning disorders, depression, chronic pain, chronic fatigue, and other psychological and physiological conditions.
Today, the research continues and there have been very promising results. So much so that modern clinical EEG machines often come equipped with brainwave entrianment devices.
It was originally believed that it was impossible to target certain frequencies with Brainwave Entrainment because they could not be heard by the human ear. These frequencies were at a level below the 20 Hz range.
When binaural beats were discovered, it became possible to target these low frequencies by playing two different frequencies in each ear and allowing the brain to tune into the difference between the two.
So if you wanted to tune into a 10 Hz frequency, you could play 295 Hz into the right ear and 305 Hz into the left ear. The brain tunes into the subsonic tone of 10 Hz because that is the difference between the two tones.
In order to use binaural beats, you need to listen with headphones since two different frequencies are delivered to each ear. Alternatively, you can place speakers next to your ears if that is more comfortable.
Isochronic Tones are even more powerful than binaural beats and tend to be more effective. They use equal intensity tones and increase the pulsing speed to synchronize the brain with the rhythm of the tones. Isochronic Tones use clean sound waves that harmonize with your brainwaves more efficiently.
You do not need to use headphones in order to listen to them, but it may produce better sound quality to do so anyway.
How Does Brainwave Entrainment Work?
Many people would love to enter into different states of consciousness effortlessly. It can be an amazing and even life transforming experience. If you tend to suffer from a lot of anxiety, you could enter into a relaxed state almost instantly. If you have trouble sleeping, you can use it to fall asleep quickly. You can even use them to foster creativity and help you meditate.
So how exactly does it all work? By manually tuning your brain to different frequency levels, you can easily enter into Alpha, Theta, and Delta states of consciousness. These brainwave frequencies are associated with deep relaxation, deep sleep, meditation, creativity, and learning.
There are many different types of Brainwave Entrainment recordings to target different states of consciousness. Each recording will be unique and laser targeted to a specific purpose. There is an array of frequency levels within the Alpha, Theta, and Delta states, and these produce different results and stimulate specific abilities.
To give you a better idea of what I’m talking about, the 4.2 Hz and 6.3 Hz both lie within the Theta range, but they will produce different results. One will help you get into a meditative state and the other will help you tap into your creativity.
There have been extensive studies to determine which mental states and behaviors correspond with each brainwave frequency level. Different metaphysical abilities have been linked to specific frequency levels. Here is a chart that breaks down the four most common brainwave frequency ranges and the states of mind it is usually associated with.
|Frequency range||Name||Usually associated with:|
|13 to 40 Hz||Beta waves||Active, busy or anxious thinking and active concentration|
|7 to 13 Hz||Alpha waves||Relaxation (while awake)|
|4 to 7 Hz||Theta waves||Dreams, deep meditation, hypnosis|
|< 4 Hz||Delta waves||Deep dreamless sleep|
How Does Brainwave Entrainment Feel?
Most people experience strong results from Brainwave Entrainment. Remember, you are using sound waves to directly manipulate the brainwaves and alter the operating frequency. This is a very powerful method to achieve many different mental states.
Here is a list of some of the common physical effects:
- Your body may feel heavy, as though you are moving in slow motion
- You feel totally and deeply relaxed in your entire body, from head to toe
- You may experience vivid visualizations and see colors or patterns
- You may be able to feel a separation of the conscious and subconscious mind and be able to access both at will
- You will feel all the tension exiting your body as you leave behind your anxiety and stress
- You may start to feel as though you have been sedated and may enter a sleep
Here is a list of some of the common mental effects:
- You may become deeply relaxed, peaceful, and profoundly happy
- You may be more easily able to visualize your goals and enter into a successful state of mind, believing in yourself as though you have already achieved your goals
- You may experience a slowing down of the swirling thoughts in your mind as you enter into the present and become completely in the moment
- You may experience a strong sense of being connected to the Source, the Universe, and to your higher self and highest level of consciousness
- You may have a clear head when you awaken the next day
- You may have improved focus and memory after using brainwave enrainment for a week or two
You must remember that everybody’s experience using Brainwave Entrainment is unique. Even though recordings are designed with a specific purpose in mind, everybody reacts differently depending on your own individual needs and desires.
While some people are open and relaxed, others may have a harder time truly letting go. Some people may have mind blowing experiences while others have more subtle experiences.
The most important thing to realize is that you will never experience anything you don’t want to because you are always in control, no matter what. You will never be forced into any state of mind against your will. Rather, you can only enter into a specific state of mind if you are willing.
It is necessary to actively listen to the recordings and relax in order to achieve the desired results. You are definitely a participant in the process and are in the driver’s seat at all times.
Who Is The Ideal Candidate For Brainwave Entrainment?
You suffer from high levels of stress and cannot relax and be in the present
You want to reach a relaxed state quickly and easily
You want to learn how to meditate or want to enhance the meditation you already do
You want to visualize or manifest more effectively
You have insomina or you have trouble falling or staying asleep
You want to develop your psychic and metaphysical abilities, such as ESP, Astral Projectino, aura viewing, past life regression, or lucid dreaming
You want to expand your mind and explore different states of consciousness
Who Should NOT Use Brainwave Entrainment?
You are epileptic or susceptible to seizures
You are pregnant
You have a history of heart problems or use a pacemaker
You have a history of mental illness
You do not like “letting go” and exploring different states of consciousness
You are driving or operating heavy machinery
Is Brainwave Entrainment Safe?
Yes, Brainwave Entrainment is completely safe because it utilizes the same frequencies that you enter into every day naturally. It just allows you to enter into these states of consciousness quickly and easily, on demand.
If you have heart problems, a history of mental illness, or any other health issues that concern you, always consult with a doctor before using Brainwave Entrainment.
You also need to understand that it affects your brainwave frequencies, so you may enter into a state of mind similar to sleep where you suddenly feel extremely relaxed. For this reason, NEVER drive or operate heavy machinery while listening to Brainwave Synchronization recordings.
