Brainwave Entrainment For Lucid Dreaming

 

Lucid dreamers have been using binaural beats for years to induce lucid dreams. If you struggle with meditation or mental focus, binaural beats make it easier to maintain the conscious awareness when performing lucid dreaming techniques. All you have to do is lie down and be willing to relax.

 

A brainwave entrainment soundtrack played at the correct frequency will induce the frequency following response even while sleeping and your brainwaves will entrain to that frequency, stimulating and activating the associated areas of your brain. Entrainment methods included binaural beats are the best to use in this case as they can stimulate frequencies below the normal range of human hearing that are associated with slow brainwave states such as deep relaxation and most forms of sleep.

 

Lucid Dream Induction Soundtrack

 

A lucid dream induction brainwave entrainment soundtrack works as follows:

 

It begins by entraining your mind to a low frequency associated with light sleep (about 3 Hz); this will help you fall asleep quickly and easily allowing you to keep your mind focused on your intention to have a lucid dream. The last thoughts going through your mind the moment before you fall asleep can have a big effect on your chance of having a lucid dream that night.  Read more

Brainwave Entrainment For Whole Brain Synchronization

 

Having meditated for many years, I discovered that it is one way to access whole brain synchronization. Another way is by using brainwave entrainment technology.

 

Whole brain synchronization occurs when the various parts of our brain begin to work together, resonating at the same frequencies and causing neural pathways to fire more rapidly. This is also sometimes referred to as “whole brain functioning” or “hemispheric synchronization”.

 

The left and right sides of our brain begin to work in concert with each other. Electrical activity and energy patterns in our brain become more widespread throughout the brain instead of remaining confined to certain areas. Our brain reaches amazing levels of performance not normally attainable without years of meditation practice.

 

Research has indicated this type of synchronization is present in the brain at times of intense creativity, clarity and inspiration. Read more

Brainwave Entrainment For Meditation

 

We all have heard of many extraordinary benefits of meditation. However, meditation can be challenging for beginners who struggle with concentration. Binaural beats (especially Theta waves) can get you into a calm and clear mental state which will make it easier for you to practice meditation.

 

The main reason for the technology’s positive reputation is its availability and ease of use. By availability we mean very affordable, hence why so many people are able to gain access. In fact, all you need is a good music player and a pair of headphones or earphones. These pieces of equipment are all you need to experience binaural entrainment, along with some dedicated time to yourself.

 

You should start by sitting comfortably, putting on the headphones and pressing play. Allow the embedded technology in the soundtrack to take over and work its magic. The infused soundtrack technology takes over and induces the desired brainwave level. All you need to do is surrender.  Read more

Methods Of Brainwave Entrainment

 

There are three main methods currently used for brainwave entrainment: Binaural Beats, Monaural Beats and Isochronic Tones.

 

Binaural Beats

 

Binaural beats are the oldest and most widely used technology. Discovered in 1839 by Heinrich Dove, but it wasn’t until 1973 when Gerald Oster wrote “Auditory Beats in the Brain” that scientific research on binaural beats erupted. Our brain produces different types of brainwaves. The frequencies of these waves range from Delta waves (0.5-4 Hz) all the way to Gamma waves (40 Hz+).

 

However, human ears are only able to pick up frequencies between 20 Hz – 20,000 Hz. Since our ears can’t grasp frequencies below 20 Hz, binaural beats work by fooling our brain.

 

How? When you listen to binaural beats with headphones, each ear is introduced to a different frequency. When you hear these 2 different frequencies, your brain reacts by perceiving the difference, called a third auditory beat or binaural beat which can then be used to change your neural rhythm.

 

For example, if you play 30 Hz in one ear and 25 Hz in another ear, your brain will perceive another auditory beat of 5 Hz. You subtract one frequency from the other: 30 Hz – 25 Hz = 5 Hz.  Read more

My Interest In Brainwave Entrainment

 

In this category of articles, we will discuss how brainwave entrainment technology can be used to optimize our meditation and lucid dreaming practices in the modern world.

 

On a personal note, I don’t use brainwave entrainment technology to enhance my lucid dreaming or meditation experiences, because I have been a conscious dreamer since childhood, and I was trained in meditation by an Enlightened Master. Although it was a long journey to become an experienced meditator, I am very grateful for the all-encompassing training that has helped me to attain enlightenment in this lifetime.

 

Since achieving enlightenment, I wanted to contribute something to help make the planet a better place for everyone and for future generations to come. Having experienced the wonderful benefits of meditation, I firmly believe in and advocate for its practice everywhere and for everyone.

 

I researched brainwave entrainment methods and tested them to find out if they can help others who have a difficult time meditating to calm their mind so that they can achieve a deep, relaxed meditative state. The result of my research is the information contained in this section.
