Is brainwave entrainment familiar to you? Do you know what isochronic tones are and what these recordings may be able to do for you? No matter what you’re keen on: becoming more creative, conquering addiction, boosting self-esteem and increasing mind power; or looking for more esoteric experiences like lucid dreaming and astral projection, there’s a brainwave entrainment recording with isochronic tones that can help. What are Isochronic Tones? The word “Isochronic” consists of two parts: “iso” which means equal and “chrono” which is related to time. Isochronic tones are actually sounds that occur at intervals equal to the duration of the tone. Look at the example of a guitar string for a while. If a string is plucked and is muted after 3 seconds, then plucked and muted again after 3 seconds and so on. If this is repeated over and over again – we’ll hear an isochronic tone. We hear the tone for 3 seconds then hear it again after 5 seconds. That is an isochronic tone which is used for brainwave entrainment.
What is Brainwave Entrainment?
Our brains generate different brainwave frequencies at different levels of consciousness. Brainwave frequency is measured in Hertz (Hz), or cycles per second, and they can be recorded using equipment like electroencephalogram (EEG) machines. There are generally four widely recognized frequency bands for brainwaves, namely the delta ( < 4Hz), theta (4 – 8Hz), alpha (8 – 12 Hz) and beta ranges(> 13Hz).
Brainwave entrainment is also known as brainwave synchronization. This is made possible by entraining the waves of the brain to a periodically repeating stimulus, like pulses of light or sound. Since brainwave frequencies during sleep are different from brainwave frequencies while we are fully awake, by listening to an isochronic tone recording, your brain can be entrained to a specific brainwave frequency for a brief period of time so as to harness any benefits that are associated with that specific frequency. You may be able to access various mental states and abilities more easily.
Benefits of Isochronic Brainwave Entrainment
What marks brainwave entrainment out is that it makes it much easier for the user to enter intended states of consciousness and so access particular mental abilities. For instance, people who practice meditation have found that, using brainwave entrainment recordings, it takes a much shorter time to achieve the same level of depth in meditation as those who have meditated for over 5 or even 10 years. Other people have been able to enter a self-induced hypnotic state much more easily. These are remarkable evidence that isochronic brainwave entrainment does make a difference in our personal pursuits.
Apart from meditation and self hypnosis, other uses of brain entrainment with isochronic tones include the following:
- Improving mind power
- Reducing anxiety
- Curing insomnia
- Boosting energy
- Lucid dreaming
- Astral projection
- Balancing ones chakras
- Overcoming addictive behaviour
- Strengthening immune system
… and many more!
Owing to the fact that the single tone of the isochronic recording allows the brain frequency to match with it easily, many experts of brainwave entrainment agree that isochronic tones are the most effective brainwave synchronization method in use.
Who should use Isochronic Brainwave Entrainment?
Is brainwave entrainment with isochronic tones for everyone? Frankly, brainwave entrainment can be beneficial if used properly on a healthy person. It is basically safe to use, although some people have experienced an altered state of consciousness which they aren’t prepared to handle. It may as a result take them some time to return to their normal state of awareness. It is therefore advisable to go slowly when trying out a new recording.
Brain entrainment is not recommended for epileptics, people susceptible to seizures, and women who are pregnant. People who are on medication should expect that drugs may have an impact on the entrainment effects.
