Brainwave Entrainment Sound Therapy really works! Both Joyce and I use these binaural beats, isochronic tones, and frequencies on a regular basis.
The beats and tones are listened to through headphones, making them the perfect addition to a Reiki session.
We will have some samples for you to listen to at our Reiki shares and classes.
Try for yourself!
What Is Brainwave Entrainment?
Brainwave Entrainment not a passing fad, but has been researched for over 170 years.
The human brain goes through many frequency cycles every day, each frequency producing different effects in the human consciousness.
Using this information, it has been discovered that the receiving and operating frequency of the brain can be altered and even controlled through the use of sound waves.
Unfortunately, it was originally thought these waves were difficult or impossible to tap through sound waves since they happened beneath the 20 Hz range.
Since that time, however, binaural beats have made it possible to hear what was previously thought unhearable.
How Binaural Beats Work
Binaural Beats work by broadcasting two separate frequencies in each ear. For example, if you wanted to tune your brain to a 7 Hz frequency, you could play 200 Hz in your right ear, and 207 Hz in your left ear. The brain will compensate for the difference between the two and produce a third tone that will be exactly 7 Hz. This will result in your brain frequency being raised or lowered, and tuned to the desired operating stage. Headphones are mandatory with Binaurals. Notice the narrow sound wave and it’s lack of uniform. Certainly a good technology, but it has room for improvement.
How Isochronic Tones Work
Isochronic tones are the most powerful type of brainwave entrainment, utilizing equal intensity tones, increasing the pulse speed, and synchronizing your brain with the rhythm. Isochronics use a distinct and clean wave form which is designed to harmonize with the brain much more efficiently. Headphones are optional but recommended.
The Difference Between Recordings
We often receive questions inquiring about the difference between recordings.
Many of our descriptions sound alike and people may assume that the recordings are basically the same.
This is not the case.
Each recording is different, and each recording is tuned for a specific purpose.
Example: 4.2 Hz and 6.3 Hz are both within the Theta Range, but exhibit totally different characteristics.
The four main frequency classifications are large and vague ranges, and within these classifications are an array of frequency options which all produce different effects.
Also, studies show that exact combination of frequencies cause many documented brain reactions.
We can not publicly disclose the exact frequencies used in our recordings for product protection reasons, but you can be assured each and every recording is specifically tuned to stimulate certain abilities.
What To Expect
Simply stated, Expect Results. Binaural Beats directly stimulate the brain by altering the operating frequency. Some of the common physical effects are:
- The body feeling heavy and the inability to move freely
- Total relaxation of the entire body from head to toe
- Vivid visualizations, colors, and patterns
- Separation of the conscious and subconscious mind
- No Anxiety or Stress. Expect a sensation of all Tension leaving your body.
- Feeling of sedation
Every person’s brain works differently, but on the same basic principles.
Some minds are more open to suggestion, while others refuse to let go.
Reports of “Wild Experiences” are not uncommon, while others enjoy more mild relaxed effects.
While each recording is specifically designed for a purpose, experiences will differ from person to person.
Just remember that your mind wants what you want.
Don’t be afraid of your own consciousness. You’re not going to be apart any time soon.
Are Binaural Beats Dangerous?
Brainwave Entrainment uses the exact same frequencies that we touch upon everyday in our daily lives.
They allow you to reach certain levels of consciousness “On Demand”.
You should consult with a doctor before using Binaural Beats if you have heart problems, a history of mental illness, or any other factors that you’re not sure about.
Also, keep in mind that Brainwave Entrainment affect your brain frequencies dramatically while in use.
You can go into a state similar to sleep or suddenly find yourself functioning at your most mentally active and creative level while using them.
Obviously, you should not drive or operate heavy machinery while using Binaural Beats.
Brain Frequency Chart
Extensive studies have been conducted to determine frequency range and the associated behaviors/mental states.
These studies have produced incredible results that link metaphysical abilities to exact frequencies.
Below is a chart that shows the four most common brain wave classifications.
Each of these can be broken down into frequencies that affect a different part of the conscious and subconscious mind.
Each classification has many possible variations, and studies have shown different combinations will produce different effects.
- HYPERGAMMA (85-200 Hz, centered at 100 Hz): Significant synthesis and understanding of sensory information, overcoming barriers to personal change.
- GAMMA (30-85 Hz, centered at 40 Hz): Perception, consciousness, problem solving; fear
- BETA (13-30 Hz): Active, busy or anxious thinking and active concentration, arousal, cognition
- ALPHA (7-13 Hz): Relaxation (while awake), pre-sleep & pre-wake drowsiness
- THETA (4-7 Hz): Dreams, deep meditation, REM Sleep
- DELTA (<4 hz): Deep dreamless sleep, loss of body awareness
History Of Binaural Beats
Binaural Beats were discovered by Heinrich Wilhelm Dove in 1839, and were considered somewhat of a curiosity in scientific circles.
140 years later, a man named Gerald Oster wrote an article entitled “Auditory Beats in the Brain.”
The article tied all previous research regarding Binaural Beats together, and concluded that it would be a powerful tool in neurological and cognitive research.
In particular, he noted how animals are able to pick out specific sounds in a sea of noise in much the same way that people can pick up a conversation in the midst of a noisy cocktail party – hence the name “the cocktail party effect.”
The technology was later developed by physicist Thomas Campbell and Dennis Menerich with the assistance of Robert Monroe.
Together they found the first applications of Binaural Beats, including a program for out of body experiences.
Research continues to this day, as new tools come out to assist people in realizing their dreams and leading better, more empowered lives.
