During an average day, most of us are in a Beta state of mind – meaning that our brain operates in the Beta range of frequencies (12-30 Hz). This is an active state geared toward production and problem-solving. It is great for an industrial civilization, but not so great for the individual longing to spend time in a harmonious and peaceful state of mind.
As any individual relaxes significantly, brainwaves slow down and go through the creative Alpha range of frequencies (8-12 Hz). However, few of us manage to consciously reach the deeper and meditative-like Theta frequencies (4-8 Hz) on a regular basis. These brainwave frequencies occur naturally while someone is in a deep meditative state or is dreaming – for example. Spending time in the Theta state is highly beneficial for the body and mind as it is conducive to healing, reducing stress, peak mental faculties, creative insights and augmented learning capabilities.
Besides meditation and hypnosis, the most effective way to induce a Theta state of mind consciously is by using a brainwave entrainment recording. Brainwave entrainment is the action of synchronizing brainwaves to the frequencies of a particular stimuli – such as sound. Sounds have frequencies of their own and when they are utilized in certain ways, they may harmonize other phenomena, such as brainwaves, to themselves. A Theta brainwave entrainment recording effectively alters the brainwaves of the listener in fifteen to thirty minutes. This brings about a state of consciousness where the aforementioned benefits can take place.
Two of the most interesting types of brainwave entrainment are binaural beats and isochronic tones. Binaural beats require headphones as two slightly different sound frequencies are sent to each ear to achieve the desired effect. Isochronic tones use a single sound frequency to produce a more pronounced effect. The technology used is different, but both binaural beats and isochronic tones consist of pulsating sound tones. They are often mixed with music and sounds of nature to make for a more pleasant listening experience. A vocal track with guided meditations and affirmations may also be added but is unnecessary.
Theta brainwave entrainment may be safely used everyday to relax after a day of work, enter meditative states, use self-hypnosis or affirmations to bring about behavioural changes, undertake a studying session, use creative visualization, etc. It is not necessary to do anything while listening to these recordings. Simply sitting or lying down and listening to the sounds is enough. Besides, the point is not always to be doing something but also to enjoy simply being.
