Brainwave Entrainment For Mind Mastery
External Audio And Visual Stimuli Can Change Brainwaves, Brain Chemistry And Your Thinking
Brainwave entrainment is any practice that aims to cause brainwave frequencies to either mimic or to fall into step with a periodic stimulus having a frequency corresponding to the intended brain-state (for example, to induce sleep or to induce focus), usually attempted with the use of specialized light and sound effects. It depends upon a "frequency following" response based upon the assumption that the human brain has a tendency to change its dominant EEG frequency toward the frequency of a dominant external stimulus. Entrainment is not to be confused with subliminal programming where thought patterns are subconsciously or superconsciously receiving actual audio or visual messages to induce behavioral or mood changes.
For Entrainment, stimulus may be audio, as in the case of binaural or monaural beats and isochronic tones, visual, as with the use of a dreamachine (an item of specialized equipment), a combination of both audio and visual with a mind machine, or with electromagnetic radiation. We will only be dealing with audio and visual stimuli for the purposes of our Braintenance regimen.Hemispheric synchronization, a desired result of some forms of brainwave entrainment, refers to a mind state where the brainwave pattern of the right and left hemispheres become alike, or synchronized – in harmony together. A person with similar activity in both hemispheres is prone to be happier, more optimistic, more emotionally stable and less prone to mental illness, although this last claim is purely anecdotal without much hard evidence to support it. Increased levels of synchronization can be found naturally in people who meditate regularly and in people who are very content with their lives.
We've selected several brain entrainment videos (with accompanying audio tracks) to induce different brain states. Remember: Life is an experiment and the world is your laboratory. In the case of these entrainment tracks, it is helpful (but not crucial) to have stereophonic headphones patched into your computer, and to watch the videos on a full screen setting. These will generally work best on devices with larger screens. Turn the volume up loudly so as to be consumed by it, and so that it will block out incidental ambient noise.
The selected tracks are hyperlinked below. The best time to try them is in the early evening after you've finished your day's work and you can relax and focus, uninterrupted, without time constraints. Some of these tracks are fairly long so be prepared to sit still and dedicate some time to each. Do not drive or operate equipment or machinery soon after enjoying any of these tracks – some of them will make you feel drowsy or trippy. Try a different track on each night of the week. If you find one or more to be particularly helpful or just enjoyable, repeat the experience as often as you would like.
Here are the tracks:
