The intention for this video is to provide a meditation aid for those who are interested in synchronizing their brain waves to a commonly used shamanic ceremony chant modulation rate. It is in the theta range, and will help guide individuals into an insightful meditation experience.
Neural entrainment is also known as brainwave entrainment or brainwave synchronization. It is the theory that our brains have a tendency to synchronize themselves to external stimulation, which could include auditory, visual, tactile or electromagnetic stimuli.
It is believed that the human brain contains approximately 80+ billion neurons which communicate with each other to form our thoughts, emotions and behavior. When our neurons communicate in mass, it produces a synchronized electrical pulse known as a brainwave. Our brainwaves can align with an external stimuli, and as a result we can stimulate our brains in ways that could positively effect our psychology and physiology. Using this method we could alter the state of our consciousness in ways that we would usually have difficulty reaching. Entrainment is an effective method which allows you to experience what these states feel like, and how they affect the body.
Theta waves are faster than Delta waves, and range between 4 – 8 Hz. We typically experience these brain waves in the NREM sleep stage or during deep meditation. They are beneficial for meditation, learning, memory, sub-conscious organization, intuitive thinking and trance states. These waves are important for memory consolidation, the maintenance of health and psychological well-being.
When used properly, Theta waves can offer a sense of interface with parts of the mind which are responsible for subconscious reprogramming. The ideation that takes place during this state by-passes some natural brain filters. Without the use of neural entrainment, or a particular external stimuli it may take consecutive hours of meditation to gradually lower brain waves into the Theta range.
Theta brainwave activity may stimulate the production of:
– DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone)
– GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid)
Theta brainwave activity may help to reduce:
