Here at Warrior.do, we’re huge proponents of audio brainwave entrainment to enhance the mind. If you’re unfamiliar with what this is, we’ll give you a brief rundown.
Entrainment is a physics principle in which one rhythmic system falls in synchrony with another rhythmic system. If you’ve ever found yourself moving your body to the beat of your favorite song, then you’ve experienced entrainment in a basic form. Besides music, this principle can be found all around you, probably more than you realize:
- Birds in the sky coming together to fly in synchrony
- Your body’s circadian rhythm synchronizing to the rise and fall of the sun.
- The human heart beating at the same beat of a pacemaker.
The brain is made up of approximately 100 billion neurons, and trillions of connections between them. These neurons communicate through electrical rhythms, which are referred to as brainwaves. Just like any other rhythmic system, brain waves can be subject to entrainment.
Brainwave entrainment is a phenomenon in which a person’s brain waves begin to match the frequency of an external source, usually in the form of pulsing sound.
Why does this matter? Brainwave frequencies are linked to various mental states. For example, faster brainwave frequencies are associated with problem-solving, decision-making, and even stress or anxiety. Slower brainwave frequencies are associated with daydreaming, imagination, and deep relaxation.
By modifying your brainwaves through sound pulsing at target frequencies, you can have greater control over your mind. However, we’ve found a far greater tool than sound to accomplish this. Keep reading to find out what this mind hacking tool is.
