How to Use Brainwave Entrainment Effectively

Brainwave Entrainment is Easy

Brainwave entrainment can help you increase intelligence, relieve stress, meditate easily, increase concentration and memory, and much more. The only way to get these benefits is to experience the entrainment yourself and do so in a systematic way.

Although the technology of producing superior brainwave entrainment frequencies is somewhat complex, using it is fairly straightforward. You just put on a pair of headphones, play the special brain entrainment audio and let your brain synchronize to the frequencies of the track.

Not All Entrainment Products Are Created Equal: First, you should know that there are two popular types of brainwave entrainment techniques in popular use: Binaural Beats and Pulsed (Isochronic) Tones.

Binaural Beat Entrainment

Binaural beats have been around for a long time and require good quality headphones for maximum benefits because of the way binaural beats are created. Two slightly different frequencies are fed, one to each ear. When the brain perceives them, a standing wave with frequency equal to the difference in frequency is generated in the brain. For example, one ear receives a tone at 240hz, and the other ear receives a tone at 250hz.  Your brain will then (theoretically) entrain to a 10hz rhythm, which corresponds to a deeply relaxed Alpha state. You change the frequency difference and another frequency corresponding to a different mental state is generated.

They are still widely used but many regular users don’t find wearing headphones comfortable. Others say that over time the brain gets used to it and the audios tend to get less effective. For these and other reasons, the pulsed tone audios are gaining popularity; they are also known to entrain more effectively. Unlike binaural beats, they are not generated inside the brain (hence, do not require headphones) but are presented through the audios.

Isochronic Tones are More Effective

The brain has a natural tendency to follow, or entrain to, rhythmic sound pulses. It allows isochronic tones to create a powerful, consistent state of entrainment that does not “wear off” over time. The pulsed tones must be audible for these effects to occur, and consistent use of isochronic tones will literally train your brain to move into the entrainment state as soon as you hear the tones.

They are extremely effective at entraining the brain to any frequency from a deep meditative state, to mild relaxation, to high level stimulation that can literally exercise the brain’s ability to produce more neural-synaptic connections, which results in increased intelligence in the user.

Go for Systematic Brainwave Entrainment

The best way to utilize brainwave entrainment for your benefit is to follow a systematic approach and go step by step. A lot of people, in their impatience, jump from one type of audio to another or want to go right into deeper meditative states right away. Many others are really so impatient that they try several different types of brainwave audios at the same time. All such people, sooner than later, end up frustrated or confused and really achieve little.

If you want to be a marathon winner, you need to train mile by mile and better follow a system chalked out by some expert. You know what will happen if you aim to achieve everything just in few training sessions. The same is true with brainwave entrainment. For best results, you need to proceed slowly and systematically allowing your brain to adjust to the changes you are trying to make.
