BrainWave Entrainment – Can It Increase Your IQ and Performance?
What Are Binaural Beats?
In a groundbreaking study in brain wave enhancement in 1999, Thomas Budzynski Ph.D. showed that we have the power to unlock dormant areas of our brains and use them for our advantage. He took a group of 8 university level students and increased their GPA by having them just listen to Binaural Beats during study and before exams and a miracle happened: their grades increased! Not only that but their GPA continued to increase even after they were finished with the brainwave test.
The HeartMath Institute has been studying the healing effect of the heart and brain wave synchrony and how it can be used to relieve stress and heal chronic heart disease in patients. They’ve developed a novel technology using sound waves to promote whole body cellular healing and rejuvenation called the EMWave2 which is a portable sound healing device.
Their IQ’s also increased, as well as reported memory enhancement. Who wouldn’t want to increase their learning capability and memory retention just by listening to some audio beats on their phone, iPod, android or audio equipment? I know I do.
Fluoride and IQ
One other thing that I do is use fluoride-free toothpaste and drink filtered water only (fluoride is added to tap AND bottled waters, unless it says on the label that they’ve taken it out! Fluoride is a chemical that is placed in your drinking water (the same fluoride used in concentration camps in Germany, and used in most antidepressant drugs) that is toxic to your brain, and will actually lower your IQ by around 10 points!
Read the following article for the dirty low down on fluoride, and why you will want to steer clear of it. And make sure your children do too: Fluoride Hazards!
Binaural Beats and Isochronic Tones
I’ve been using this wonderful technology for over 5 years now, and I can say that it has improved my own capability to remember names, promote relaxation and even get a good night’s rest when my mind is overactive using the holosync program shown on the movie “The Secret.” I keep the audio on my smart phone and use it regularly.
So, what are these audio beats, and how do they work? Well, we all know how music in general affects us, sometimes profoundly. The beats are interpreted by our brains as different vibrational frequencies (Cycles per Second; CPS or Hertz; Hz.) Our brains attune or match the frequencies that we are listening to and specific beats have specific effects on our mental states.
Do Binaural Beats Work?
Binaural Beats work by using headphones and having different frequencies played into each earpiece. For instance a frequency of 500hz is played into the left ear, and a frequency of 512 is played into the right ear, and the brain is forced to synchronize it and it will harmonize to 12 Hz (the difference between the two frequencies).
Isochronic tones do not require headphones and simply pulse the frequency with a kind of woo-woo-woo-woo sound.
Brain Entrainment Frequencies
There are 5 brain entrainment frequencies that can be monitored. In addition to the the 4 main brain entrainment frequencies above, there is another one that has been recently discovered called Gamma.
Here are the BrainWave Frequencies and how you can use them to improve your IQ, Experience Deep Creativity, Healing, Performance and even connect with the spiritual dimension:
Gamma and Beta are the brain frequencies you can use for conscious breakthroughs. Alpha is the relaxation and creativity phase. The slowest states like theta (healing, lucid dreaming, out of body experiences, and deep meditation) and delta (deep sleep, chronic healing and recovery, growth hormone release) help us heal and regenerate at a very deep level.
Gamma Brain Waves (above 40Hz) – The Insight Wave
Gamma frequencies are the most recently discovered and vibrate the fastest at levels higher than 40Hz. More is being currently being researched and discovered with this ultra transformative brain wave frequency by the day. It is being correlated to bursts of creative insight and genius level information processing. It has now been shown to be the dominant phase that is happening among Olympic level athletes when they are “breaking through” a personal record or winning an event. It also happens when a person experiences a “Tesla” or “Einsteinian” type moment of inspiration where time just seems to stand still and they discover a personal breakthrough.
Beta Brain Waves (14-40Hz) – Alert Daytime Waking Consciousness Phase
The Beta brain wave frequency is associated with normal daytime waking consciousness and a heightened state of physical alertness, logic and critical reasoning. It is what you want while dealing with spacial relationships, map reading, getting to a destination and interpersonal communications.
Although Beta is what you need to feel fully awake, alert and able to accomplish a good day’s work, it can also lead to high anxiety, stress, hypertension and other serious health issues if it is not balanced with the others throughout your day. Naps, Daydreaming and Relaxation Breaks, can help take you to a healthy alpha resting phase so you can decompress and then come back into beta ready for action.
Alpha Brain Waves (7.5-14Hz) – Creative Relaxation Phase
The Alpha brain wave phase is what you experience when you close your eyes for 60 seconds or longer. It shuts out the exterior world and brings a natural sense of peace and relaxation. Daydreams and light meditations happen in this healthy phase. It’s what you want when you’re “cramming for an exam” and actually want to remember things.
When you’re in Beta too long and start feeling stressed out, you body squeezes the blood out of your brain and into your extremeties (fight, fright or flight syndrome). That’s why the harder you think for an answer, the harder it is to actually get it. In Alpha is where you can access your answer. Get there while in an exam or stressful situation and let the right answers be made clear to you.
Alpha is also called the gateway to your subconscious mind and lies at the base of your conscious awareness. The voice of Alpha is your intuition, which becomes clearer and more profound the closer you get to 7.5Hz, which coincidentally is the earth’s natural base frequency, also known as the Schumann Resonance.
Connect with the earth, by standing barefoot, or being in a body of water, and you get to alpha. That’s why earthing is so healing and de-stressing.
Theta Brain Waves (4-7.5Hz) – Healing Meditative and REM Sleep Phase
Theta brain waves are present during physical healing, deep meditation, and sleep, including the all-important REM dream state. Theta is also the place where you can connect spiritually to your higher source, God or universal consciousness as you have gotten out of your own way (Beta Frequency). Meditations in this state are where you experience vivid visualizations, great inspiration, profound creativity and exceptional insight.
It is at the Alpha-Theta threshold, which is between 7-8Hz, that you can enhance visualization, mind programming and use the creative power of your mind to reprogram your subconscious for success in breaking old habits. Also, referred to as re-writing the autopilot script that plays in your mind almost 24/7. It’s the mental state which you consciously create your reality. At this frequency, you are conscious of your surroundings however your body is in deep relaxation.
Delta Brain Waves (0.5-4Hz) – Deep Sleep and Bodily Regeneration Phase
Delta is the slowest of the frequencies (no pun intended for the airline company, lol) and is experienced in deep, dreamless sleep and in very deep, transcendental meditation where awareness is fully detached. You have access here to the collective unconscious, or all that is. Ego is detached here and you can soul travel and experience other deep astral type journeys, like accessing the akashic records. It can be hard to recall or bring back the information, as this is also the phase that correlates to the river of forgetfulness for people who work with life between lives in past life regression therapies.
Among many things, deep sleep is important for the healing process – as it’s linked with deep healing and regeneration. Hence, not having enough deep sleep is detrimental to your health in more ways than one.
You can listen to Binaural Audio and bring your brain to your desired state to accomplish things you couldn’t even dream of before. You can get pre-recorded binaural and isochronic programs that work on specific issues you want to improve on. You can get free binaural beats.
I use it all the time for everything from spiritual and metaphysical endevours as well as excelling in my natural bodybuilding routines. It works where most medicines fail. I use the Neuro Programmer for creating and mixing my own frequencies for IQ boosting and creativity.
