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.
Science Meets Spirit
We live in a time where science is better understanding the mind-body connection, leading us to a variety of solutions that we can use to better ourselves.
With increased awareness shedding light on the many life enhancing benefits, science and research has also been able to play an important role in providing us with the knowledge and technology for personal development and transformation.
With increasing interests in meditation, brainwave entrainment technology may be just the thing for the spiritual seeker aiming to enhance their practice. It is a comfortable way to attain full relaxation while accessing deeper meditative levels. The popularity of this spiritual technology is on the rise as more and more people embrace meditation.
There are five different base brainwave states of the brain. These include Gamma, Beta, Alpha, Theta and the Delta frequencies. These states are determined by the degree of activity in the brain.
Different brainwave patterns correlate with our state of mind and also how our body is experiencing each moment. Alpha state is related to light relaxation; Theta is present during the body’s natural and spiritual healing process; Delta is linked to deep meditative state or directly before sleep; Beta is dominant in our waking state of consciousness; and Gamma is where we enter a high energy state of super focused and inspired creativity.
What Is Brainwave Entrainment?
All of us understand the effect that sound waves can have on our body, mind and emotions. We’ve all been moved by a magnificent piece of music.
We all know how pleasant certain sounds can be – like the sound of ocean waves, falling rain, babbling brook or birds chirping – and what a profound effect they can have on our consciousness.
There are, of course, scientific reasons behind these effects. Once they’re understood, it’s possible to reproduce them and put their wonderful power to use.
In the early 1990s, a team of trained psychologists made a fascinating discovery; they found that sound waves, all by themselves, could improve your brain’s ability to think, learn, create and solve problems.
Through further scientific and consciousness research, it has been shown that individuals can enter different brainwave states when influenced through stimulated audio patterns. This is the science that gives rise to brainwave entrainment.
Brainwave entrainment is generally considered any method by which the brain can be induced into altered states of consciousness by exposing it to controlled stimuli. Despite its modern sounding name, it dates back to ancient cultures: think bonfires, shamanic drumming, rhythmic prayers.
Today, it is possible to use sound waves to modify, regulate and improve one’s brain chemistry by safely and beneficially moving the brainwaves into desirable patterns. Brainwave entrainment has been proven by countless scientific studies to:
- Open the door to realize your full potential
- Reach high levels of consciousness
- Quiet your mind to achieve a deep, relaxed meditative state
- Significantly reduce stress
- Overcome self-limiting beliefs
- Achieve the mindset to attract and manifest the life you want
- Improve sleep and reduce insomnia
- Enhance your intuition and creativity
- Fortify your immune system, physical health and longevity
- Improve memory and concentration
- Feel more happy, confident, inspired and motivated
- Optimize whole brain functioning
