Binaural Vs Monaural and Isochronic
Over the last 25 years the pace of technological change has increased so rapidly that one decade’s must-have gadget becomes the next decade’s laughing stock.
Entrainment itself has been used by humans for thousands and thousands of years. The underlying “principle” of entrainment is very old. What is “new”, is the technical methods used in combining and delivering entrainment waves in the nice, digital formats we now have them in. Binaural, Monaural and Isochronic, each have unique benefits and combining them gives you added dimensions of use where you get the best of all worlds.
LifeFlow Meditation® incorporates all three wave forms in its entrainment matrix creating a wider variety of use, benefits and endless possibilities.
The strongest attribute of binaural waves is their ability to create whole brain synchronization. All three wave types produce synchronization, but binaural does a better job than the other two tones. Binaural beats must be listened to with stereo headphones for them to achieve this.
Monaural beats are produced when two tones combine digitally or naturally before the sounds reach the ears, as opposed to combining in the brain like binaural beats.
In a 1973 issue of Scientific American, Dr. Gerald Oster noted that Monaural waves create a far greater entrainment effect than Binaurals.
Isochronic tones incorporate a single tone, which turns off and on in a specific and accurate pattern and is widely regarded as the most effective method of entrainment. Many people who do not respond well to Binaural beats often respond very well to Isochronic tones.
Monaural and Isochronic tones share the big advantage in that they can both be listened to over open speakers, i.e., without the need of using headphones. This is a real bonus for people who don't want to be tied down by a pair of headphones with a cord.
An additional benefit to using LifeFlow® over open speakers is the fact that we "listen" with our entire body, not just our ears.
Those of us with normal hearing may not be as aware of the effect that sound vibrations in the air have on our bodies as a whole, because we focus our attention almost exclusively on those vibrations as they are received through the normal auditory mechanism, but if we tune that out we will often find that we continue to experience the sense of "sound" through our body as a whole.
Taking this a step further, entrainment waves restricted to a set of headphones, such as isolated Binaural beats, will impact only our ordinary auditory senses.
Monaural and isochronics, played out in the open air, however, have the capacity to impact and influence the entire body.
We harmonically layer precision-engineered window frequencies within exquisitely beautiful music and magnificent sounds of nature.
The result is an entrainment experience unmatched by any commercial product on the market today. You really have to experience it to believe it.
These layers of entrainment waves gently guide the brain into ideal brainwave states, perfect for meditation and a multitude of other uses. People are playing LifeFlow® in the background for relaxation, to help their children focus on homework or at bedtime to help them drift off to sleep. They even play it to calm their nervous or boisterous pets.
Can you remember taking holiday photos and taking the last three of your pet to use up the film so you could take it to the chemist, wait an hour for it to be developed and as you quickly checked through them, found 3 out of the 36 that you like and half a dozen had stickers on them for various reasons?
With modern technology we can now share digital photos with family and friends on Facebook all over the world within seconds of taking them.
What was cutting edge technology not long ago is laughable to today’s children, just as today’s technology will no doubt create laughter from their own children.
