Brain Entrainment or brainwave entrainment/brainwave synchronization refers to any such process that tries to bring about a brain wave frequency which would fall in step with a particular periodic stimulus. This would have a frequency that is in correspondence to the intended state of the brain.
The process of brain entrainment or brainwave synchronization is more often than not carried out with the help of updated and advanced medical software for purposes like inducing sleep.
Brainwave synchronization or brain waves entrainment, to a large extent, depends on the response of a “frequency following”. Frequency following on the other hand is a natural process whereby the human brain always tries to bring about a change in the standard EEG frequency. It tries to pick upon a frequency of a stimulus that is dominant and external in nature. Often such stimuli tend to be of aural, monoaural or binaural beats with tones of iso-chronic nature. These stimuli that cause brainwave synchronization can be of a visual kind as well a dreamachine, electromagnetic radiation or even a mind machine that is a combination of both.
Brain Entrainment Helps Increase Mind Power
No matter how intimidating and how clinical it may sound but brain entrainment is a process that is not as much complicated and bizarre as it sounds. Brain entrainment or brainwave synchronization no wonder is a scientifically proven procedure but when it comes to hardcore science, there is nothing much scientific about brainwave synchronization.
The basic process of brain entrainment focuses on the simple procedure of listening to binaural beats which are sound recordings that have an immensely relaxing effect on the brain wave. On listening to such beats the listener is soon deported to a state that can only be reached through a disciplined process of meditation. Having read that, you must have realized by now that brain entrainment/ brainwave synchronization is an immensely advantageous process hugely of assistance as a relaxation technique for building mind power by inducing the brainwave. Brainwave synchronization helps bring about positive effects that can otherwise only be achieved through meditation.
Using music and sound in order to affect the mind is a trend rather old in history. We all know and have felt that music tends to have a very deep trodden effect on our minds and hearts that is of a unique kind which also helps us relax. In fact this quite rightly justifies the use of rhythmic tones, harmony and music in situations when motivation and influence is aimed at. Music is a medium with immense capabilities and no one is as such immune to its powers and influence. Hence music finds indispensable use in brain wave entrainment.
How does music help in Brain Entrainment thereby increasing mind power?
The fact that rhythm, harmony and music tends to have such deep trodden and powerful effect on both our mind and heart is because on hearing music the existing brainwave patterns in our mind tend to change. And the change in brain wave patterns is generally into a state where the brainwave patterns become similar to the ones that occur during meditation or during any relaxed state of mind.
Hence music initiates our brain to reach such a level when we can manage to initiate the deepest levels of our mind, the level that controls our memory and the course of our life. Music manages to enter the deepest corners of our brain, dig into the subconscious mind and change the pattern of brain wave. This is an idea that is not new but only recently did the scientists manage to know exactly how music initiated the nooks and corners of the brain and manage to bring about relaxation through brain waves entrainment.
Science has finally managed to decode the rhythmic codes that tend to have such invincible effects on the brain wave. Any form of sound or harmony is basically made of vibrating waves that have their own unique frequency and amplitude. All sound frequencies do not have positive or relaxing effects on the brain or brain wave. And that is what the scientists have finally managed to know. They have finally managed to trace out which are the particular sound waves that have a positive effect on the brain and the existing brain wave bringing about a stage of relaxation when even the deepest corners of the brain can be penetrated.
Brainwave synchronization is effective in manipulation of the brain and the brain wave
Brain entrainment or brainwave synchronization is actually the scientific term that is used to refer to the process of manipulation of the brain wave through the use of external sound waves and rhythmic tones.
Each of us have experienced it more than once in life, how while walking with a friend that we tend to get in sync of the rhythm of walk with the other person automatically. This is so because the brain is organically oriented to follow an external wave and get in sync with it. Hence, on listening to music our brain automatically starts following the harmony and the rhythm, neurons get initiated at a simultaneous pace finally getting the brain wave in the same sync.
Scientists are of the view that if one intends to put the brain in the optimal state of brain wave; they simply need to listen to music that is purposely created in similar frequencies for such an elevated purpose. Such music frequencies are commonly termed as binaural recordings.
