Let's discuss principles of psychoneurophysiology (PNP), the way external rhythmic sensory stimili affects the living body. I began learning about brainwave entrainment (BWE) in the early 1980's beginning with biofeedback. I never heard about these things in school, but when I read a few articles about it, I became very curious.
I recall wishing that my school would offer classes on these subjects. I worked with a biofeedback device that I got from Edmund Scientific of my own accord. No teacher I knew in the psych department had expertise in the matters of PNP; they told me I would have to find a school like Stanford that dealt with neuroscience.
I had a few communications with Stanford Instructors; when I asked Blas Cabreras about his SQUID device when I was in college physics. My question were about cosmic energy and how it affects the mind, but the "school of thought" was highly compartmentalized back then as it is now.
Since then, attitudes have changed towards self improvement tools such as BWE; they've gone mainstream as CD's especially with the pioneering works of Dr. Jeffrey Thompson, a neurologist as well as an accomplished musician. Career wise, Dr. Thompson is where I wanted to be, had I known how to approach my academic career in my younger days. Such is life.
How I wish, if only someone, anyone could have explained the basic fundamentals to us as young kids in grade school on how music affects us at deep, psychological levels. The principle of brainwave entrainment can be explained quite simply.
Teachers didn't have to go on about cortical evoked responses or post-synaptic potentials; they simply had to tell us that a song represents an idea. Isn't that simple? Songs are basically ideas generated from the minds of musicians. (I'll tell you what this has to do with BWE very soon.)
The more people who resonate with that song/idea, the more famous that song becomes. The more we resonate with a song, the more we resonate with the feelings and consciousness generated by that song.
Imagine yourself as a musician/song writer for a moment: The primal principle of rhythms such as drum beats is meant to reflect the rhythms in nature. By the same token, brain wave rhythms are part of nature, therefore, those drum beats reflect whatever consciousness we are experiencing when we're writing that song.
The melody as well as the words/lyrics reflects the idea in your song. The rhythm reflects the consciousness. Therefore, a song is like an idea riding on a consciousness.
Of course, a song has to reflect social mood in order to be famous. Pop music tends to reflect social mood. For example, Lady GaGa's "I'm on The Edge, The Edge, The Edge..." reflects mainstream social mood because many people feel like they're on edge these days (as of this writing).
All music contains a form of brainwave entrainment when they contain regular rhythmic / melodic structures. Music containing these regular structures can engrain an idea into anyone as long as it resonates with them.
If only someone had provided that simple explanation, I would have found the courage to bypass the careless instructors to get back into music much sooner. Such is life. Instead of lamenting, let me give you what I wish public school teachers should have given to me: A basic understanding of the way the human mind works.
First, here are the reasons for listening to music spiked with BWE. Not only because I'm one of the people who produces these products; it's because people have been doing this for ages. (e.g. listening to music with natural soundscapes like babbling brook, bird songs, rain, wind, etc.):
BWE can help us reach whatever consciousness we need to obtain our goals and heal chronic ailments. For example, if you enjoy relaxing and sleeping during thunderstorms, a Power Nap CD can help with healing and athletic recovery. A Sleep Induction CD can help you into a deep sleep if you have insomnia.
When you click the Mind Stereo Link you will go to the website for Transparent Corporation:
Thought Sounds 4 Mood Elevation by Transparent Corp. is a large volume of royalty-free soundtracks from an experienced composer of film scores, adept in using music theory to harness the emotional power of sound.
The full power of these soundtracks is in their unique design for use with brainwave entrainment. For example, they feature minimal breaks in the sound that provide a consistent carrier on which entrainment can be delivered to the brain. No other audio collection brings together neurological and psychological audio therapy like Thought Sounds, and the result is pure bliss.
Thought Sounds 4 quality is comparable to Native Instruments' Cinematic Tension Toolkit, RISE & HIT, the ultimate suspense instrument for spine-chilling, cinematic build-ups made for professional composers, but at an affordable price. Check it here.
By studying the neural activity of people experiencing altered states, researchers have been able to pinpoint distinct brainwave patterns associated with intense experiences such as deep meditation, emotional detachment, spiritual experiences, lucid dreaming and even out-of-body experiences.
Beyond Being uses specially engineered sound patterns to affect your neural rhythms to help reproduce these complex patterns in your brain. In doing so, this audio collection aides in giving you access to the rarest and most intense mental states known to mankind.
Here are some of the experiences reported by users of Beyond Being:
Produced especially for you by the neuroscience experts at Transparent Corporation, experience altered states of consciousness NOW with Beyond Being.
Have you ever noticed how life seems so effortless for some people? How they make all the right decisions and enjoy all the rewards - happy relationships, fulfilling jobs, profitable investments, and comfortable homes?
Have you wondered how they got to be so lucky? How everything seems to fall into place perfectly to bring them everything they desire?
These people aren't lucky. They've learned to listen to their natural instincts - their innate sense of intuition that guides them toward the right decisions.
It may be hard to believe, but you have that same natural talent! You simply need to awaken it, and that's exactly what the Infinity Program is designed to do.
What if every time you encountered a challenge - big or small - your mind immediately presented you with the ideal solution, the one you knew in your gut was right, and everything worked out exactly like you'd hoped? What if you could tap into this ability at will to help you handle all of life's challenges?
With the Infinity Program, you can.
Within just a few weeks of listening to the Infinity Program, you'll:
Over the centuries, people have thought of intuitive insight as a form of ESP. They couldn't explain how the mind could get such in-depth answers, such perfect solutions, without even trying.
But now scientists have unlocked the mystery of intuition. They've discovered the mind has a natural ability to present us with important and meaningful solutions to all of life's challenges at exactly the right moment.
This natural talent is called the "adaptive unconscious." It's the mind's built-in ability to gather information, sort through it, and file it away for future use. It's the part of your mind that notices even the tiniest of details - the subtle things that slip under the radar of your conscious awareness.
When you need answers about your life, your mind sorts through all those bits of information and combines them in meaningful ways. Suddenly you're struck with a spark of insight that seemed to come out of nowhere. That's your adaptive unconscious - your intuition - at work.
But sometimes it's a struggle. Sometimes it's as if the answers simply aren't there for you, no matter how hard you work at it.
That's where the Infinity Program can help.
Get lasting results quickly and easily.
The Infinity Program boosts your natural intuitive ability, with no effort required.
Just by listening to audio tracks featuring our brainwave technology, your subconscious will learn how to find the ideal answers more quickly and easily, and to deliver that intuitive insight directly to your conscious mind.
In no time at all, you'll be able to access your intuition with ease and gain a rush of insight whenever you need it:

Please explore some of my research in BWE which is posted at HealingMindN Power Circle. BWE is one facet of psychoneurophysiology (PNP) a division of neuroscience, one of my favorite subjects.
BWE is such a favorite subject of mine that I produced several BWE albums as you see under related posts.
My latest work is based upon the latest research on waking rhythms for increasing learning, enhancing creativity, and building overall mental health; It's called The Big Picture. In retrospect, maybe I should have chosen a different title since there are so many albums with this same title, but the idea within the main song is to be able to see The Big Picture through building mental acuity. That was my intention. You can hear samples from The Big Picture at My Music Stream or get the CD through Amazon's Create Space.
Please see the results on brainwave entrainment which builds upon decades of research at HealingMindN Power Circle including the related posts.
Some people feel they don't have the time to tweak their own sessions, so they want something premade. If this describes you, then you can try the Unexplainable Store, mp3 and CD products at your convenience:
Unexplainable has an expanding, evolving, success oriented library of brainwave entrainment sessions from DNA Stimulation to Self Esteem including an even more amazing 60 day money back guarantee if you're not pleased with the results.
According to the collective works at Collective DNA Consciousness, DNA forms an intelligent network which is influenced and programmed by intention expressed through word language and ideas. In essence, at least 40% of that quintessential material (DNA) which shapes us is shaped by our personal feelings through important interactions and emotionally euphoric/traumatic events. An important tool for shaping and understanding ourselves is neurolinguistic programming (NLP). For this reason, we can include communication and social interaction through NLP Philosophy.
The Delta Brainwave frequency is often thought to be the answer to promoting healthy cellular activity, but what happens when sleep is disrupted? With all the worries of your day, even if you do sleep it may not be the very specific type of sleep required to help repair damaged cells. Even as the world grows more and more carcinogenic, our minds are less and less able to fight back. It's no wonder, cancer is quickly overtaking heart disease to become the number one killer.
Thanks to our brainwave entrainment program, the body can achieve Delta patterns easily. When you listen, your mind will be eased to an enhanced Delta state, where your body's powerful healing mechanism Kicks in. While in this state, energy will be focused on healing and maintenance of your body rather than movement and reaction. In this state a powerful transformation takes place that will help your body become healthier and stronger. Not only does the Delta state promote DNA repair, but can also assist in muscle recovery and healing in general! Start to feel better about your health! Your body works hard, it's time to pay it back.
