Have you read any good books lately?
How about those that will change your mind and the way you think about things…literally. On a couple other posts of Your Daily Shot of Inspiration (one of my personal blogs), I acknowledged a book called Subconscious Mind: The Power from Within by Susi Mora. In the blogs, I mentioned information about brain entrainment. The brain and how it works has always been fascinating to me. My favorite classes when I took my college courses were about the brain and how it learns and develops. Needless to say, now that I just landed a job working with different mental health patients, I am really excited.
For those of you who are scratching their head saying, “brain…what?” The best way I can describe this is through a link I found. The beginning paragraph explains brainwave entrainment as “a method to stimulate the brain into entering a specific state by using a pulsing sound, light, or electromagnetic field” (http://www.brainworksneurotherapy.com/what-brainwave-entrainment). Our brains go through different states when we are sleeping and awake. I’m sure most of you sort of knew that but the fascinating thing is through brain entrainment, and what is called binaural beats and isochronic tones, you are able to reach certain brain states that you might otherwise not be able to enter unless you are sleeping. Why is this important and extremely awesome? Well, first let me brief you about the different brain waves in general.
They are as follows: infra-low, delta, theta, alpha, beta, and gamma.
The infra-low brain waves are generated at less than .5 HZ.
Brain studies are very challenging at this level because it is difficult for them to be detected, but they are important when it comes to “brain timing and network function” (http://www.brainworksneurotherapy.com/what-are-brainwaves).
The delta waves are generated at .5 to 3 HZ.
They are slow and loud. It has said they can be compared to the sound of a beating drum. During the delta phase is usually when a person is in their deepest, dreamless sleep. These brainwaves help with empathy and alertness.
The theta waves generate at 3 to 8 HZ.
They also occur during sleep, but a person can reach the theta brainwave state during deep meditation. It has also been said that during the theta meditation is when your subconscious and conscious merge. The theta state is our dream state and helps with memory and learning.
The alpha waves occur from 8 to 12 HZ.
Alpha waves help with mindfulness and can help people who have low serotonin levels in their brain reach a more calm and happy state of mind.
The beta waves generate at 12 to 38 HZ.
There are three different levels of beta brainwave awareness, but it occurs when we are making decisions, solving problems, or when we are more focused.
Last, the gamma waves occur from 38 to 42 HZ.
They are the fastest of all our brain waves. The way this is described is equivalent to the sound of a flute. At one point, gamma waves were not included in the brain waves state “until researchers discovered it was highly active when in states of universal love, altruism, and the ‘higher virtues’” (http://www.brainworksneurotherapy.com/what-are-brainwaves).
How does this all tie into the book I read?
Well, in the book, it states that there are different ways to trick your subconscious into believing things that were ruled out as untrue at a previous state in your life. To help you understand better, as I mentioned on my personal blog, as children we are deeply influenced by the adults that play the main role in our lives. So, even though you may consciously accept an idea as extreme as the law of attraction as true after you learned from several different people, books, and through research, your subconscious will still rule it out as untrue and block you from experiencing the kind of life you want.
Certain things like meditation, positive affirmations, and brain entrainment can reprogram your subconscious mind.
The subconscious part of your brain is the most important when you need to accept a certain idea or feeling that is different from the one that has been implanted into your brain. Our brains, more or less, can be compared to a computer system. We have to program them to think a certain way in order for them to create certain feelings, ideas, etc. Of course, we sometimes had no control over our brains as children, which is why most people think of the law of attraction as something that someone decided to create out of thin air one day when he was bored.
Brainwave entrainment can quickly trick your brain.
The hardest part of this all is trying to get people who have backgrounds like myself (PTSD and severe anxiety) programmed to think in a more positive way. It’s difficult, and I have been trying this for over a year now, but the more I learn, the more quickly I improve. The book I read states that if you find a way to use subliminal messages with certain types of brainwave entrainment then you can more quickly trick your subconscious into believing what you want it to. I just wanted to share that little tidbit of information with you today because I think it would be amazing if there was a breakthrough with this type of therapy to help others who have been in similar situations as myself.
Check out my YouTube Channel for more info.
If you become more interested in this type of thing, you can check out my YouTube channel. It is in my profile. I have personally made these different types of theta binaural beats with positive affirmations that I have been watching daily. I have noticed a difference, and I plan on doing one less personal for a larger audience soon. I hope to one day have the equipment I really need to do a better job putting it all together, but for now, I honestly know it’s helping me. I hope whoever is reading this is as fascinated as I am so that one day we can figure out how to make the world a more peaceful place.
