Brainwaves-All You Need To Know


At the root of all our thoughts

Emotions and behaviours is the communication between the neurons inside our brains.

Brainwaves are produced by synchronised electrical pulses from masses of neurons communicating with each other.

The Neuro Light

The Neuro Light is a form of brain stimulation that I term “Brain Engagement” as compared to “Brain Entrainment”. The NL Brain Engagement method utilizes some aspects of Brain Entrainment that are integrated into a number of other advanced brain signaling methods that have evolved forward since the earlier more simplistic Brain Entrainment concepts.

Schumann frequencies

There is increasing awareness in the wellness industry as to the significance of the Schumann frequencies.

For those new to these, they relate to a specific range of organic frequencies found in the cavity between the earth’s crust and the ionosphere. The base frequency is 7.83Hz with the harmonics falling roughly between 5.9Hz and 6.5Hz.

All that has naturally evolved vibrates within this range of frequencies in an exquisite balance of life in harmonic resonance.
When frequencies from the man-made world (wifi, mobile phones, transmission towers etc.) start imposing on this delicate balance, the natural world is subject to a wide range of discordance.

These have an adverse effect on the fine balance of many things including our own energy fields impacting our DNA, immune system and electrical brain signalling.
In the western world, a large majority of people function for a period daily within the left-brain Beta range of logical, analysing, stressing, or anxious frequencies – 12.5 – 30 Hz.

Whereas the Schumann range supports the right-brain relaxed and balancing frequencies of the closely aligned Theta 6 -10Hz.
The Ajna Pineal Light has specific settings of Schumann resonance for balance and higher awareness, and The Neuro Light has within its integrated sound files a range of Schumann frequencies for restorative brain signalling.
Schumann resonances

Winfried Otto Schumann (May 20, 1888 – September 22, 1974) was a Germanphysicist who predicted the Schumann resonances, a series of low-frequency resonances caused by lightning discharges in the atmosphere.

Brainwave entrainment

Human brainwaves

Human brainwaves, as measured by electroencephalogram (EEG), represent

the electrical firing

of the neurons of the central nervous system.

It is through these electrical signals that the brain communicates within itself and with other organ systems.

Coherent and functional brainwave patterns are required for the processing, execution, and successful completion of a task, whether it is physical (e.g., walking) or mental (e.g., solving an algebra problem).

In healthy individuals, specific brainwave patterns are associated with various mental states.

Five common brainwave bandwidths (delta, theta, alpha, beta and gamma) and the related mental activities have been well-described.

Within the five common brainwave bandwidths, sub-categories (high, low alpha and beta, and sensorimotor rhythm) have been identified for different mental activities.

Specifically, delta activity (0.5–3 Hz) is dominant primarily during deep sleep.

Theta (4–7 Hz) is typically seen in drowsy and relaxed states.

Low alpha (8–10 Hz) is the dominant brainwave bandwidth observed during meditation and the state of turning inward (daydreams, dissociation from external stimulation).

High alpha (11–12 Hz) is associated with creativity and the alert but calm state needed for peak performance.

Sensorimotor rhythm (13–15 Hz), often categorized as low beta, is thought to occur predominantly in the still state before a reactive psycho-motor action.

Low beta (16–20 Hz) is associated with intellectual activity and problem-solving. High beta (21–37 Hz) is found in emotional and anxious states.

Gamma  (38–42 Hz) is associated with attention and intense cognitive activity.

In addition, excessive beta and gamma activity has been observed in people in a hyper-aroused state (e.g., stress, anxiety, or insomnia).

Brainwave entrainment

Brainwave entrainment is a method to stimulate the brain into entering a specific state by using a pulsing sound and light.

The pulses elicit the brain’s ‘frequency following’ response, encouraging the brainwaves to align to the frequency of a given beat, as evidenced for example by the sophisticated auditory driving technique developed over thousands of years by shamans and priests.

As anthropologist and shamanism authority Michael Hamer, points out, “The basic tools for entering the SSC [Shamanic State of Consciousness] are the drum and rattle.

With good reason, Siberian and other shamans sometimes refer to their drum as the ‘horse’ or ‘canoe’ that transports them into the Lower World or Upper World.

The steady, monotonous beat of the drum acts like a carrier wave, first to help the shaman enter the SSC, and then to sustain him on his journey.”  – MegaBrain

Brainwave Entrainment – How Effective Is Brainwave Meditation?

Brainwave entrainment is a relatively new phenomenon that has been sweeping the internet. Nowhere has it made its mark more though than on YouTube where lots of young kids can be seen claiming to be having psychedelic experiences or to be high.

Type in ‘Binaural Beats’ into YouTube and you will quickly see this going on. Other people too though are using them, for learning, for meditation and for relaxation.

They appeal to all walks of life and they have seemingly an endless number of effects. So just precisely what is brainwave entrainment and can it work?

The idea behind brainwave entrainment is fairly simple. Here it is believed that you can actually a listener’s brainwaves by playing them a certain pitch.

More specifically the hope is that by playing two separate frequencies in each ear, you can thereby entrain the individual’s brainwaves to rest specifically between the two of them.

This is done using sound files that are called ‘binaural beats’ and which you play through headphones with one frequency in each ear.

The actual sounds themselves sound like a screeching noise or white noise that might recall a badly tuned radio with a kind of pulsating rhythm behind the sound.

HISTORY of Brainwave Entrainment (BWE)

The first known clinical application of BWE was discovered by a French psychologist, Pierre Janet, in the late 1800s. Janet noted that his patients appeared calmer after being exposed to a rotating strobe wheel that was illuminated by a lantern, and thus he used this method therapeutically as needed.

After Berger showed that electrical activity could be recorded from the human brain in 1929, Adrian and Mathews (1934) showed that the Berger rhythm (alpha) could be further amplified by photic stimulation at the same frequency.

In 1942, Dempsey and Morison found that BWE could also be induced by a tactile stimulus, and Chaitran reported entrainment effects with an auditory stimulus in 1959.

Psychological effects of BWE were further explored in 1946 when flickering light produced frequency-dependent sensa- tions of “pattern, movement and color.”

In 1959, BWE was found to reduce the need for anesthesia during surgery, and in 1975, it was found to enhance meditation. The development of BWE tools proliferated after Oster’s 1973 article on the proper- ties of the binaural beat.

Research on the effects of BWE on pain, headaches, migraines, anxiety, and stress followed in the 1980s and expanded in the 1990s to include learning and memo- ry, ADHD, learning disabilities, behavioral problems, and PMS.
