Different Methods of Brainwave Entrainment

Brainwave entrainment, also known as brainwave synchronization, is the process of using pulses and tones to cause your brainwave frequencies to correspond to a certain brain state such as:

  • Lucid dreaming
  • Chakra tuning
  • Theta meditation
  • ESP, etc.

Brainwave frequencies can be ‘manipulated’ in a few different ways:

  1. An aural stimulus can be used such as with binaural beats, monaural beats or with isochronic tones.
  2. A visual stimulus can be used such as with a dreamachine.
  3. Or a combination of aural and visual can be used like with a mind machine.

The goal is to tune your brain to a specific frequency that will produce the desired results. It has been researched for over 170 years and scientifically proven that experiencing different frequencies can cause specific altered states of consciousness quickly and efficiently.

Which Type of Stimulus is Best?

Visual Stimulus

A dreamachine (or dream machine) is the most common type of visual stimulus used for brainwave entrainment. It consists of a stroboscopic flicker device that produces visual stimuli. It is supposedly quite effective but very difficult to find. I have personally never seen or used one.

Visual and Aural Stimulus

A mind machine if you ever get a chance to use one sounds pretty neat. Basically it uses pulsing rhythmic sound as well as flashing light in order to alter your brainwave frequency. It uses a combination of both an aural as well as a visual stimulus. Sounds like it could make you a bit dizzy but it is supposedly very effective with inducing deep states of relaxation, concentration and altered states of consciousness.

Aural Stimulus

Using an aural stimulus such as brainwave audios on MP3 or CD like binaural beats, monaural beats or isochronic tones is the easiest type of stimulus to find and use.

I have been using this type of brainwave entrainment for a couple of years and have found it to be very effective on my stress and anxiety levels as well as with experiencing numerous mind states.

In fact using brainwave audios such as binaural beats have been used by top athletes, major corporations, healers and individual people from all over the world.

Most Popular Methods of Brainwave Entrainment

Binaural Beats

The most simple and widely used form of brainwave entrainment is with binaural beats. Binaural beat technology works by presenting one ear with one specific tone and presenting the opposite ear with a slightly different tone. When you hear these two different tones in your two separate ears your brain automatically creates a third tone that is the difference between the two frequencies presented. A specific combination of frequencies can create different shifts in consciousness. Which frequency you choose to listen to will depend on what you wish to experience.

Monaural Beats

Monaural beats use two tones of equal intensity. They are different from binaural beats in that they are easier on your brain. The brain does not have to actually balance the tones like they do with binaural beats and there is no adjustment time. The single tone produced by monaural beats pulses on and off in specific patterns that are tuned to a specific frequency… again depending on the desired effect.

Isochronic Tones

Isochronic tones are not as easy to find but are known to be the most effective type of brainwave entrainment. Similar to monaural beats, they use tones of equal intensity but the pulse speed is faster. This causes the brain to synchronize with the rhythm and quickly reach the frequency of the desired effect. Isochronic tones are very powerful and extremely effective and have been used for everything from weight loss, to meditation, to past life regression, to telepathy and even for improved memory and IQ.

Where to Find Quality Brainwave Audios

For the past year I have been using the binaural beats and isochronic tones from The Unexplainable Store. I continue to use their products in my daily life because they are easy to use and most importantly they work!

What are the Benefits?

Some of the common benefits to using brainwave audios such as binaural beats are:

  • Relaxation and deep sleep
  • Less stress
  • Pain management
  • Improved memory
  • Sharper focus and concentration
  • A stronger sense of connection
  • And the ability to reach numerous altered states.
