We have experienced the soothing effects of watching light shimmering through a forest or playing poetically on water, the trance-like formula of hearing and seeing the steady flow of waves pounding the shoreline. These natural occurrences create repetitive stimulus that captivate the senses and alter brain frequencies.
We may not have realized that the constant sound and dance of light transforms the brain by producing alpha and theta waves that relax and soothe.
Brain Entrainment is a technology created to do the same things with three different beats, binaural, monaural, and isochronic.
Brain Entrainment employs the use of sine wave generators, which formulate programs that send binaural tones close in pitch to each ear, causing the brain to create a third beat. This third beat is the brain producing the difference between the two beats. This third tone sets a space that clears interference and allows an altered state of consciousness.
The keystone to Brain Entrainment or Synchronization is that the prevailing EEG frequency is inclined to make way for a dominant exterior one. The stimulus is usually aural, consisting of binaural, monaural, or isochronic and the visual relating to a dream or mind machine. The dream/mind machine joins the visual with pulsating light and aural with regular beats.
Monaural and binaural beats usually stem from man-made programs and are rarely encountered naturally. Entraining the brain simply relaxes the mind and assists the listener/observer to move into the state of consciousness quicker through a programmed technique using sounds and light.
Monaural are different from binaural in that the binaural is deciphered in the brain,
whereas the monaural frequency is generated by the ‘neural output within the ear and created within the olivary body within the brain.’ The third beat is an isochronic tone, which is a single toned regular beat and are like monaural beats being outside the brain. “They differ from monaural beats, which are constant sine wave pulses rather than entirely separate pulses of a single tone. As the contrast between noise and silence is more pronounced than the constant pulses of monaural beats, the stimuli is more pronounced than the constant pulses of monaural beats, the stimuli is stronger and has a greater effect on brain entrainment.” 1
The stimulation of the thalamus is crucial in brain entrainment. For example, hearing two chords of a guitar with varying frequencies played concurrently titillates the thalamus. This is an example of monaural beats as it is external from the ears. When beats, defined as binaural, are played through a loud speaker, they become monaural.
What is brain entrainment used for? There are programs created to: assist in inducing sleep, manifesting desired results, freeing oneself from stress and negativity, empowering meditation, mental clarity, peace of mind, protect from EMGs, build the immune system and so many more benefits. Brain Entrainment induces the brain to produce more alpha waves and beneficial hormones.
A matrix using all three tones may be used for the most effective entrainment of brain waves and the highest level of brain synchronization. A good source to hear the different tones and observe a light visual is You Tube. Listening and observing the tones and light pulsations will give you an understanding of the different tones and frequencies used in the applications of Brain Entrainment.
