The user of our brainwave entrainment programs, hereby referred to as programs, is designed soley as an aid to learning, relaxation, motivation, self improvement and experimentation. These programs are not intended as a replacement for psychological or medical treatment. No medical claims are intended to be expressed or implied.
Those with the following conditions, whether knowingly or not, should not use these brainwave entrainment programs:
Epilepsy, Pregnancy, Pacemakers, Seizures, Psychosis, Head Injury
If you are under the use or influence of drugs or medications, please consult your physician before using any brainwave entrainment programs.
DO NOT USE WHILE DRIVING, COOKING, SUPERVISING SMALL CHILDREN, OPERATING MACHINERY, OR ANYTHING ELSE REQUIRING YOUR FULL ATTENTION.
To properly use a Binaural Beat audio program, you MUST use headphones or Ear Buds! Without headphones, you will not receive the benefits of the Binaural Beats. Most decent headphones or ear buds will do, they do not need to be expensive or fancy. The ones that came with your cellphone should work just fine. It will work best if you make sure the right earphone is on the right ear, and the left earphone is on the left ear, since the tones vary on each side, and may be side specific.
DO NOT drive a car, operate heavy machinery, cook, supervise small children, or do anything else that requires your full attention, and may be potentially dangerous, while listening to a brainwave entrainment program. This is especially true for programs that go to a deep Theta or Delta level! So don’t do it! Play it smart and safe!
SIT OR LAY DOWN, CLOSE YOUR EYES, AND RELAX IN A SAFE PLACE! Brainwave entrainment and self hypnosis will work best when you are relaxed, and have your eyes closed. So take a break!
Many people want to know, how often should I use a program like this, and at what time of day? Just start with once a day, and first try it in the evening, after work, and after dinner, just to see what it is like. After you get a feel for it, use your discretion about timing, but it may be wise to reserve the Theta, and definitely the Delta level programs, for later in the evening. (For more information about Gamma, Beta, Alpha, Theta, and Delta, keep reading.)
Many people find that using one of the Alpha programs first thing in the morning is a good way to start the day, as a morning meditation. Also, the programs that use Beta and Gamma brainwave entrainment (such as the study music programs) can be appropriate in the earlier part of the day. Please, do not over-do it with brainwave entrainment programs; just once or twice a day is fine. Also, you may notice that after a few months, the effects you once experienced are not as pronounced; this is normal, and actually desirable. It means you are finding the balance you were seeking, and may not need the program as much as before.
What Are Binaural Beats?
If two different tones are played into each ear, the brain attempts to find a balance- for example, if the frequency of sound in your left ear is 420Hz, and the frequency you’re hearing in your right ear is 430Hz, your brain will process a binaural beat of about 10Hz. These beats are not actually heard, since they are well below the natural range of hearing, but you can often “hear” a sort of “humming” inside your head as the binaural beat.
It’s been discovered that these binaural beats can be used to elicit responses in the brain; the brain becomes “entrained”, which means it starts to resonate at the same frequency as the binaural beat. When this happens, it can change the brain wave patterns in your brain temporarily. This has been shown to have a huge effect- it’s been shown that binaural beats are highly effective at inducing meditative and hypnotic states. This is a great breakthrough for anyone wants to meditate, but didn’t have the time or teacher to learn how. This type of meditation can also more effective than usual meditation because of the binaural beats. Meditation can reduce your stress levels, the amount of sleep you need, and it can increase such things as intuition and creativity.
Brain Wave States
Scientists have discovered that our brains operate in four levels of frequency- beta, alpha, theta and delta. Each level of frequency is measured in cycles per second, or hertz- hz.
Gamma has the highest frequency, at 40 cycles per second and above. Advanced meditation and yoga practices associate the Gamma brainwave frequency with a state of pure compassion. Researchers have also learned the Gamma brainwave frequency is associated with a heightened sense of perception, information processing and mood.
Beta has a frequency, between 13 and 40 cycles per second. This is associated with our normal, everyday waking state. Beta helps in logical thinking, analysis, and active attention. Stress can throw the frequency to the higher ranges of beta.
Alpha operates between 8 and 13 cycles per second. This occurs during daydreaming, fantasizing and creative visualization. This is often associated with a deeply relaxed state, and with a light trance or meditation.
Theta operates between 4 and 8 cycles per second. Theta is associated with intuition, and allows us to access our subconscious. It is activated during dream sleep and deep meditational states. Theta is also associated with creative thinking, and allows us to tap into our inner genius.
Delta has the lowest frequency between 0.5 and 4 cycles per second. Delta is produced during deep sleep.
Most of the subliminal and self hypnosis programs go to a low frequency of 7.83. This is known as the Shummann or Earth Resonance, and it is the frequency of the Earth’s magnetic field. It is also on the cusp between the Alpha and Theta brain wave states. I have found this to be a very beneficial frequency, leaving the listener feeling calm and centered. Most of the programs will ramp back up to a frequency of approximately 12 Hz, leaving the listener on the cusp between Alpha and Beta. Some programs differ, with binaural beats going to deeper, Delta brainwave states, and this will be noted in the descriptions.
Please note, some of our Delta, and our Sleep programs, do not ramp back up, but stay at a deep Delta brainwave level. Refer to the web page where you purchased the MP3 for more specific details on your particular program.
AMBIENT OR ISOCHRONIC BRAINWAVE ENTRAINMENT PROGRAMS
The AMBIENT, or ISOCHRONIC MP3s are optimized to be used Without Headphones. They use either Isochronic Tones, or Monoaural Beats.
To use this type of MP3, for optimal benefits, find a quiet place, free of distraction. Make sure you are comfortable, in a chair or lying down, close your eyes and listen to the sounds.
Sound therapy can be more potent than you may realize, as it actively engages the brain in ways you may not be used to; if you have had a recent head injury, or suffer from a serious mental disorder, such as pschizophrenia, proceed with caution. If you feel any discomfort or worsening of symptoms, discontinue use!
This MP3 is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. Disclaimer
