Your Brain on Brain Wave Entrainment…

Brain Wave Entrainment

Brain Wave Entrainment


Your brain is comprised of approximately 100 BILLION neurons. A neuron is a specialized cell that transmits information via electrical chemical impulses that travel from one neuron to another via neural synapses (pathways between the neurons).

Depending on the messages being transmitted, these impulses move from neuron to neuron in a regular pattern (a brain wave) that can be measured using specialized equipment called an EEG.

Scientists have been able to use the EEG to distinguish 5 distinct brain waves that equate to 5 different mental states that can be generally described as…

  • Gamma: 30-60 Hz: Associated with compassion, empathy, decision making under stress, and higher brain functioning and processes. Gamma Frequencies are found naturally in higher amounts in long time meditators. It is thought to improve clarity of thought and believed to improve intuition.
  • Beta: 13-30 Hz: Wide awake state and associated with sensory motor awareness. Focused and alert, analytical thinking, learning new information quickly. Usually associated with peak mental and physical performance, but is also associated with stress and anxiety.
  • Alpha: 8-13 Hz: Associated with lighter meditative states and super learning. It is a relaxed yet alert state of mind ideal for positive thinking and creative problem solving. It is used to elevate mood, reduce stress, enhance creativity and is believed to bridge the conscious and unconscious mind.
  • Theta: 4-8 Hz: This is the dream state and is ideal for creative inspirations, enhanced visualization, deep meditation, deep relaxation, inner peace and a general sense of well-being. Key state involved in energy healing work. Believed to increase inner wisdom, enhance intuition, and reduce stress.
  • Delta: 0.6-4 Hz: This is deep sleep with no dreaming. It is associated with physical healing and recuperation, healing of the limbic system and may positively influence symptoms of PTSD. Believed to help with inner growth and wisdom, deep healing, and recovery from trauma.

At any given time a person’s overall brain wave pattern is a combination of the alpha, beta, theta, delta, and gamma brain waves and each of these patterns, in general, equates to different mental, emotional, even spiritual states.

Brainwave Entrainment technology has been designed to entrain your brain into specific brain wave patterns, hence enabling you to move into a desired mental/emotional state.

Brainwave Entrainment is based upon the discovery by a Dutch scientist named Christian Huygens in 1665. Huygens observed that when a number of clocks were put in a room, the pendulums would eventually all synchronize with one another’s rhythm, no matter how intentionally off rhythm they were started. He called this tendency to synchronize entrainment. This natural entrainment was so precise that even alignment with the most advanced machines could not get them synchronized as well.

The human brain also follows the same kind of entrainment response, responding to rhythmic outside stimuli (for example drumming), shifting brainwaves until they moves into synchronization.

Brainwave Entrainment technologies capitalize on this Frequency Following Response (FFR) to help guide the listener into a more desirable state. A number of different methods are used, including…

  • Binaural Beats: Binaural beats are two frequencies played at the same time to produce a third frequency that is used to entrain brainwaves. For instance, a 340 Hz sound played in one ear and a 350 Hz in the other would produce a 10 Hz wave which, in turn, entrains the wakeful relaxing brainwaves mentioned above. This effect is produced in the brain.
  • Monaural Beats: Monaural beats are similar to Binaural Beats in that 2 tones are used to create the entrainment beat. The primary difference is that the 2 tones are combined in each of the left and right channels of the stereo field. Because Monaural Beats are not produced in the brain but rather in the sound itself, they can be heard without headphones.
  • Isochronic Tones: Isochronic tones utilize equal intensity tones, varying pulse speed, and work by synchronizing the brain waves to the rhythm. It’s a fine art to create Isochronic tones that are both pleasant and effective but when done well they are proving to be a very powerful entrainment tool.
  • Proprietary Technologies: Research into new more effective brain wave entrainment methods continue and we are at the forefront. Our Super Mind Music collection uses special combinations of the above technologies in addition to other proprietary methods that all aim to give the listener an ever more enjoyable, powerful experience.

Another benefit to regular brainwave entrainment listening not mentioned above is that in order to enable the entrainment to take place new neural connections (synapses) are formed between the neurons. These synapses enable many new pathways for information to travel, which in turn increases both the flexibility, creativity, and information holding capabilities of the brain.

In other words, listening to brainwave entrainment, just by its nature, makes you smarter.

Some General Guidelines When Listening to the Super Mind Music BWE Audios

1) There is no one right way to listen to the Super Mind Music audios but we do have some general guidelines to help you get the most out of your experience.

2) Use headphones unless otherwise specifically stated. Most of our audios are created with different sounds coming from the left and right channel, and it is how the brain processes this different information that creates the bwe effct.

You can absolutely listen to the Super Mind Music Albums while doing other things, but please don’t do anything that could create injury (no operating heavy equipment or chopping vegetables please). Whether you realize it or not the audios move you into an altered state of consciousness.

3) With each of the audios there is a short term and a long term effect. In the short term (while listening and immediately after) you can expect to receive some level of the benefits described for the individual audio and you can also expect those benefits to increase with repeat listening.

Maximum benefits are achieved after listening daily for approximately 30 days. This is how long it is estimated to take for the new neural synapses to take root and the new way of thinking to become somewhat habitualized.

Continued listening after the 30 days is encouraged as often as you like, not only because the music is so beautiful to listen to, but also because continued listening will strengthen and further increase the permanence of the audios effect.

4) You can absolutely listen to more than one audio a day and we highly recommend that you should limit the total amount of time you listen to brainwave entrainment technology to not more than 2 hours a day for people new to the technology, and not more than 4 hours total for anyone.

Most people have absolutely no issues listening to our brainwave entrainment audios from the first listen, but every once in a while a person may experience some uncomfortable moments (most notable head pressure or heightened emotion, moodiness) when they first begin listening.

When this happens we strongly recommend that you slow things down, perhaps even to just ten or fifteen minutes to start) and then build up your listening time slowly. There is no benefit to working through the discomfort and in fact it can really slow down your process. Give your brain the opportunity to get use to the technology, comfortably, and you will find that before long you are listening with enjoyment and ease.

5) If you can only listen to a portion of a specific audio please always start at the beginning. The Brainwave Entrainment technology in each audio goes through specific phases designed to guide your brain easily into a specific state. More often than not if you begin somewhere in the middle of an audio you will not receive the desired effect.

6) Please do not listen to any of our Brain Wave Entrainment audios on repeat through the night. For one we believe strongly in our total listen time guidelines. Secondly, the brain also needs some quiet time to process and if it is being fed bwe (or affirmation audios or subliminals) throughout the night than this is not possible and much of the benefits of the audios may be lost.
