What is brain wave entrainment?

Music to Power your Mind - Brain-Wave Frequencies Feeling better emotionally and physically with imagery and the vibrations of sound. Seemed far-fetched, but having little to lose from it, I experimented with various brain wave entrainment exercises.  To be specific, it was “Aural Entrainment” which uses audio frequencies in relation with brain frequencies that influenced me most.

Binaural beats, Monaural beats, Isochronic tones are the three types of aural entrainment used today. Of the three, Binaural beats have been the most helpful for me. To help you understand each one better, here is brief explanation of each.


Binaural Beats : Involves two frequencies/tones with a close range that play just microseconds apart, creating  a subsonic tone that’s said to affect your brainwaves depending on the sounds produced. The tones almost run side by side with each other.

Monaural Beats : Similar to Binaural, but instead of the tones running milliseconds apart, when the wavelength of the first frequencies reaches the high point, the next tone begins. This creates a humming sound that gets louder than quieter, then louder again.

Isochronic Tones : These are slightly different. A tone exactly like what you would hear on an off air TV station with the colored lines. Might make you wonder if we’ve been programmed through brain wave entrainment all our lives. Commonly, these singular tones are played and paused in even intervals.

Recorded studies on Audio and visual entrainment from the 1950’s up until now show promising benefits to using subliminal imagery and sound frequencies. Many others who I respect highly of, support using aural entrainment. So I had to give it a try, and  it changed my view on meditation forever, and for the better of course.

 

My reason for brain wave entrainment

The biggest flaw in myself before discovering brain wave entrainment was lacking concentration or easily distracted because of it. Repetitive clicking would annoy me and sounds that overwhelmed my mind would be like a wall being created between me and my thoughts. Trying to work while a dog barked outside was impossible. I knew that many others are not bothered by this, so I had to try something.

 

My results from using brain wave entrainment

After just a month using binaural beats, I realized it was my thoughts that were blocking out the rest of the universe. I’ll explain myself more in my conclusion below, but little did I realize, I was overcoming my most dreadful flaw that caused me endless frustrations.

 

Reasons for other people to use brain wave entrainment

  • Higher Focus – This is where binaural beats helped me with distractions.
  • Reducing Stress – Monaural beats seem to have a large impact stress reduction.
  • Increase Energy – Many support Isochronic tones to help energy levels.
  • Improved Memory – Seems to vary between binaural and monaural beats.
  • Emotional and Physical Healing – Studies are revealing that Isochronic tones have healing attributes.

 

In conclusion to my aural entrainment experience

Having little expectation for results of a higher well-being, I started listening to various binaural beats. The settle audio automatically intrigued me. With the headphones on listening, I was able to steadily focus on work. Not because the binaural beats worked magic on my brain however. I just couldn’t hear the annoying buggers that bothered me. Oh well, I was more productive with the beats so I continued to use them.

Why wouldn’t I right?

I enjoyed it and I was productive at the same time. So I continued my days listening to brain wave entrainment of similar types, and I few really grew on me. Many of them have specific tones blended to gentle music, which make it very enjoyable.

Funny thing happened though – I was cleaning up the house one day and had an idea. I jumped to the computer and started to write an article. Becoming engaged into the topic, I spent an hour doing research while writing this article. All of a sudden I hear a yell, “COCO, BE QUIET OUT THERE” The neighbor was annoyed by the barking of his dog…

My headphones! I forgot to put them on.. Obviously, I grinned and chuckled in thought. My frustration towards distractions is decreasing at a level I would never have imagined. There is no other explanation I can offer for this other than using aural entrainment as a tool. I will tuck this wonder in my tool belt for later with other uses. This has been one of many fun personal development activities for developing your mind which helped me in my own progress. Keep in touch, and always have an open mind.

      Glad you found it so. I would suggest mentioning this to your instructor and see what she know of it. It might very well be a practice which she knowingly brings to her class.

    I agree, binaural beats seem to me to be the most beneficial but that can be different for different people.
    The downside to using binaural beats is you really need to use headphones. If you want to use brain wave entrainment or aural entrainment to help with sleep, it might be better to use monaural tones or isochronic beats.

    This is a great post… and yet another example of how we can take control of our hectic and sometimes disturbing world. Thanks for sharing.

      Also a sensitive topic due to its sophisticated nature.

      What I mean is that certain beats are for certain people. Frequencies that focus on aspects of the brain which you should not focus on my cause you more frustration than anything. This is why it’s important to understand your emotions, and be mindful of your thoughts. With the right practices however, it is as you say, the most beneficial way of improving your thoughts, emotions, and perspectives.

      Glad you took time to share your input, it is really appreciated!
