How to Meditate Using Brainwave Entrainment and Create the Life you Desire?

Author: Simon Wan

Do you know that we meditate because we want to alter our Brainwaves? Yes, Meditation helps us do just that. Modern science and technology has come forward to help those of us who look forward to reap all the benefits of meditation without being involved in the traditional rituals, boredom and difficulties that new meditators often face. With the discovery of brainwave entrainment, now just anybody can meditate easily and effortlessly just by listening to an audio.

That's right. You put an headphone, relax, breathe and listen to the music, and the special sound-track will synchronize or 'entrain' your brain to produce a specific brainwave that creates the desired states of calmness, relaxation, bliss and much more! Read on to know how some brainwave entrainment programs can even unlock your hidden subconscious power and potential to bring you the life you want!

What are Brainwaves and how do they affect our minds?

Let us begin with a question. Why do we meditate? Most people will agree that we meditate because we want to attain inner peace, clarity, health and well-being, or gain concentration and mind power to transform our lives for better. Right? What do we do precisely when we meditate? We actually change the state of our mind, when we meditate. That's another way of saying that we alter our brainwave frequencies.

Our brain is made up of billions of brain cells called neurons, which use electricity to communicate with each other. Just imagine that billions of neurons are transferring signals in your brain in this moment to communicate and interpret the information you are reading. What a tremendous amount of electrical activity this produces in the brain!

The electrical impulses generated in the brain are commonly called Brainwave Patterns, because of their 'wave-like' nature. Our brain operates by generating these electrical pulses that create different frequencies of the brainwaves, which can be registered and measured by a medical instrument called electroencephalogram.

Scientists have identified five categories of brainwaves, which fall between the most active state of mind to the most passive or dull states. They are Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta and Gamma. Every state of mind has its corresponding brainwave pattern.

Beta brainwaves are known as the most active brainwaves falling within the frequency zone of 13 to 40Hz. They are generated when your mind is actively engaged and alert, like when you are solving a maths problem, conversing with someone or driving. Beta brainwaves are most conducive to activities requiring concentration.

Alpha brainwaves are generated when we are in a state of physical and mental relaxation, although fully aware of what is happening around us. Alpha state of mind is conducive to imagination, learning and intuitive thinking. Alpha brainwaves have slower frequencies and they fall between 8 to12 Hz.

Theta brainwaves have an even lower frequency of 4 to 8 Hz. They produce a deeper level of relaxation and meditation. Theta is a state of passivity with reduced consciousness. In this state, you may be daydreaming, feeling sleepy, or are in the first stages of sleep.

Then there are delta brainwaves. Delta waves are generated when there is unconsciousness, deep sleep or catalepsy, and the brainwave frequency falls between 0.1 and 4 Hz. per second. That's the state when you go into a deep, dreamless sleep and wake up totally refreshed.

Gamma brain waves are the fastest brainwave frequency having the smallest amplitude. People with peak concentration and extremely high levels of cognitive functioning have also been seen emitting a substantial range of gamma brainwaves. Gamma brain waves fall between 25 and 100 Hz, with around 40 Hz being typical in humans.

Gamma Brainwaves: Meditator's High

A dominance of Gamma waves in the brain is associated with the "feeling of blessings" reported by experienced meditators. Neuroscientists believe that gamma waves are able to coordinate and integrate information from all parts of the brain. The entire brain is influenced by the gamma wave, though they are produced in the thalamus. Sports persons are also seen emitting gamma brainwaves during their peak performance. Gamma brainwave state generates the feeling of being "in the Zone," which makes you feel that you are capable of doing anything you want.
Eminent athletes, celebrity musicians, enlightened spiritual masters and high achievers in all fields produce far more gamma waves than any average person. People with high gamma activity are naturally happier, calmer and more at peace.

You are probably reading this and wondering if you could also control your brainwaves to attain a happier, calmer and better life. Fortunately, there is a way, nowadays. It is possible to design your mood and mental states according to your wish, even if you're not an experienced meditator. How?

Brainwave Entrainment for a Better You

Brainwave Entrainment is becoming more and more popular as a method to alter states of the consciousness and change lives. Many are using it to achieve certain mental states that correspond to certain behaviors. If you are unfamiliar with this, brainwave entrainment is a means to change or synchronize your brainwave frequencies to the desired one by means of applying an external auditory stimulus.

Brainwave entrainment is based on the natural behavior of the brain. Our brains always respond to the external stimuli that we are being exposed to all the time. For example, when you hear a musical beat, your body tends to move naturally to it and certain sensations are produced in your mind. Another instance is when the gentle utterance of an esoteric mantra or prayer evokes in you a sense of peace and inner calmness. What brainwave entrainment does is to use a more systematic way to synchronize your brain.

Brainwave Meditation helps Health, Healing and Recovery

Brainwave entrainment has come a long way since they have been discovered decades ago. They are now being successfully used for healing and recovery. They have been used in health clinics, alternative-therapy institutes and hospital to cure insomnia, depression and for speedy recovery from illness.

Unlocking Subconscious Mind by Brainwave Meditation

There are many good brainwave entrainment products out there in the market. I've used many of them. Some programs are really good while some others fail to deliver what they promise. The one I'm using now is developed by USP Mind Power Institute. It has been created to unlock the power of your subconscious mind. I'm using it for about one month and experiencing very good results.
Besides being able to focus more on positive emotions like love and compassion, I'm also seeing many positive changes around.

I use these albums for my daily meditation and they work. If you really want to get good results in your life using brainwave entrainment programs, beyond the beginner's level, and you are interested in the opening of your hidden subconscious power rather than simply enjoying brainwave music, then you can try this out. USP Mind Power System is developed by extensive research on the exploration of the subconscious mind power using and integrating ancient esoteric system with the modern brainwave technology. I have gone through this program and I've been benefited by it; so I don't endorse it simply because it's there. I've tried it and it has produced good results for me. The most wonderful thing is that it doesn't interfere with my Christian belief and still improves my life. What you get out of this program is really worth the price. Awakening your subconscious mind power is no small thing! Besides helping you to learn new things they create new neural pathways to create permanent change in your habit, behavior and temperament.
