Brainwave Entrainment

What is Brainwave Entrainment? +

Brainwave Entrainment... a brief history.

Brainwave entrainment was first identified in 1934, although its effects had been noted as early as Ptolemy.

In a 1973 issue of Scientific American, Dr. Gerald Oster examined how combining 2 pure tones resulted in a rhythmic beat which he called Binaural and Monaural Beats. In comparing Binaural beats against Monaural beats, Oster noted that Monaural beats were shown to elicit extremely strong cortical responses, which is the electrical activity responsible for entrainment.

In the 1980's studies continued with Dr. Norman Shealy, Dr. Glen Solomon and others researching entrainment for headache relief, Serotonin and HGH release, as well as general relaxation. Michael Hutchison wrote his landmark book MegaBrain in 1981, outlining the many possible uses of entrainment from meditation to super-learning.

In 1981, Arturo Manns published a study which indicated the amazingly strong entrainment value of Isochronic Tones, as opposed to Monaural or Binaural beats. This was later confirmed by others such as David Siever. Studies continued into the 90's with researchers such as Dr. Russell, Dr. Carter and others who explored the vast potential of using entrainment with ADD and learning disorders. Research has also been conducted into PMS, Chronic Fatigue, Chronic Pain, Depression, Hypertension and a number of other disorders. Steady research continues today with the work of Dr. Thomas Budzynski, David Siever, psychologist Michael Joyce and many others. The results of entrainment have been so promising that many modern clinical EEG units presently come with built in entrainment devices.

Every day more psychologists, mental health clinics, coaches, teachers and professionals are discovering entrainment, and finding it remarkably useful.

Dr. Elmer Green, prominent biofeedback pioneer, reports:- Increased learning ability, creativity, mental clarity, intelligence, intuition... and positive changes in mental and emotional health. "With the creation of new neural pathways, more choices are available. Herein lies the theoretical explanation for the amazing personality changes researchers have reported in subjects using technology to change brainwave patterns."

What are the proven benefits of Brainwave Entrainment? +

Here is a piece from a recent study that has been written up specifically so that non-specialists can comprehend it…

This study was carried out in May 2009 under the auspices of the Canadian Center of Science and Education and published in their journal.

It includes work by researchers from the School of Educational Technology, Shenyang Normal University, China, and from the Graduate School of Innovative Life Science and the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Toyama, Japan:

A Study of Brainwave Entrainment Based on EEG Brain Dynamics.

The Benefits of Brainwave Entrainment

These are a few of the benefits you can experience with Brainwave Entrainment.

  1. Increase your focus and concentration.
  2. Increased memory performance.
  3. Increased creativity and problem solving ability.
  4. Enhanced sleep and ease of getting to sleep.
  5. Enhanced health.
  6. Access your intuition.
  7. Relaxation and stress reduction.
  8. Behavior modification (getting rid of your bad habits).

In the above benefits, 1, 2 and 3 is rated to the learning efficiency. When your brain is brought into an alpha or delta state by Brainwave Entrainment, you will find that you have improved your learning abilities.

There are studies that say most of all sickness is strongly linked to stress. Stress causes chemical changes in the brain which in turn affect your health. By using Brainwave Entrainment to change the state that your brain is in, you can affect your health in a positive manner. Just by bringing your brain into an alpha state you will find that your stress melts away and your outlook on life brightens. I do want to mention that diet and exercise is also crucial to reducing stress and you will find that you can use Brainwave Entrainment to help program your mind to change your diet and get you to exercise. The benefits to be realized by controlling your brainwaves are wonderful. You may be thinking, Brainwave Entrainment is similar in the sense that you will find over time you will be able to handle stress and life’s issues more easily… To read more …

Why is LifeFlow® Audio Technology the most effective? +

LifeFlow® is engineered with Instant Tri-Wave Technology which incorporates 3 wave forms... Binaural, Monaural, and Isochronic tones... and developed from the latest, most cutting edge brainwave entrainment technology, based on hundreds of scientific studies so you can…

  • Enjoy greater benefits both with and without headphones.
  • Experience ecstatic brainwave states of Gamma (40 Hz) unachievable with Binaural technology.
  • Reach your targeted brainwave state and rest there for the time you decide suits your personal lifestyle.
  • Achieve better results in less time because each level starts and ends at the target frequency needed for effective brainwave entrainment.
  • Own a lifelong aid that can improve the quality of your entire life.

A report by Dr. Gerald Oster, of Mt. Sinai Medical Center was published in the October 1973 issue of Scientific American.

In this report "Auditory Beats in the Brain," Dr. Gerald Oster stated that Monaural (bi-directional) entrainment creates a far greater entrainment effect than binaurals. He also stated that Monaural entrainment works well for people who cannot perceive Binaural beats.

When tones of different frequencies (up to 26Hz) are presented separately to each ear, pulsation's called binaural beats occur in the brain. This results in the whole brain becoming entrained to the internal beat and resonating to that frequency.

Monaural entrainment is produced when two tones combine digitally or naturally before the sounds reach the ears, as opposed to combining in the brain like binaural beats.

And that’s not all… Monaural tones can be heard with both ears, however, one ear is sufficient to perceive them, making the tracks incredibly effective even for those suffering from hearing impairments.

Isochronic entrainment incorporates a single tone, which turns off and on in a specific and accurate pattern and is now widely regarded as the most effective method of entrainment.

Monaural and Isochronic tones also 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.

It's Not Only the Most Effective, but also Most Effortless Method of guiding you progressively into beneficial brainwave states perfect for Meditation, Relaxation and Mind Improvement.

And if you choose, there are 9 deeper brainwave states descending from Alpha through to Deepest Delta for you to experience and benefit from along with the following free bonus tracks…

Below is a link that you may find interesting which explains very well why each deeper level makes a great and important foundation for the next.

https://www.project-meditation.org/community/meditation-chatter-box/1437-experiences-lf-9-lf-1-a-2.html#post7113

Optimal Learning… designed to gently guide you in to the alpha brainwave state commonly named by scientists as “The super learning state” You can play Optimal Learning as long as you choose to get in the zone instantly and save hours of wasted time.

Creative Flow… designed to gently guide you into the enjoyable and inspiring theta brainwave state associated with enhanced creativity and insight. You can play Creative Flow for as long as you choose when working at your computer, reading, writing, visualising or during any kind of creativity.

Exciting New Gamma Tracks Awaken and Nirvana
The huge demand for these tracks is due to the fact that something very unusual occurs at 40Hz which works extremely well for relaxation, meditation, creativity, study and stress reduction etc. It really is the frequency known as the "Jack of all trades" and has had great success in dealing with conditions such as ADD.

The LifeFlow® program is set up to take you from a place that you already are a little familiar with and to progressively expose you to the experience of deeper and deeper brainwave states so that each becomes familiar to you and builds upon your experience with the previous state. Each LifeFlow® level creates the vital and solid foundation for the next deeper level so you can feel comfortable and familiar with each unique and beneficial brainwave state.

Each track has different background soundscapes of exquisite music and unique sounds of nature. These are carefully chosen to fit significant carrier frequencies so you can enjoy a relaxation or meditation experience unmatched by any commercial product on the market today.

Just as you exercise your body to feel better and improve your physical health, stimulating the brain in this manner “exercises” the brain, bringing better mental and emotional health and increased intellectual functioning.

Here’s what Andra from Romania and Dr. Elenewski from Colorado had to say

“I passed my exam with 100!
LF is just outstanding! I received the CDs on Friday and decided to give it a shot. I have tried all sorts of brain enhancement technologies but this is by far the best. So, on Monday, all my classmates were stressed out about this super very important exam that afternoon so before I went to school I just listened to LF 10 and it worked wonders : all my fears and my anxiety were gone, replaced by a sense of wellbeing and fulfillment. I also listened to optimal learning right before the exam,and I felt very confident and focused. I totally aced it! I am so happy that I stumbled upon this amazing technology!”

Am I ready to move onto my next deeper level of LifeFlow®? +

When each particular level feels normal and familiar and you are enjoying benefits in your daily life, then is usually the time to progress to the next deeper level.

When you have spent enough time at each of the beneficial levels of LifeFlow® (i.e. 30, 60, 90 or 120 days. It's your personal preference and it depends on how dedicated and consistent you are with the entrainment program) you will have learned how to reach this level of meditation more easily, naturally and consciously.

You benefit mentally, physically and spiritually in different ways at various levels of alpha, theta and delta. So it becomes useful to know exactly what the frequency of the entrainment program is.

Will LifeFlow® help improve my sleep problem? +

There is a good chance yes. After listening for just a few weeks, many LifeFlow® participants report much higher energy levels during the day and deeper more restful sleep.

Check out what this LifeFlow® member had to say:

https://www.project-meditation.org/community/project-meditation-success-stories/638-hi-im-t-j-now-i-sleep.html#post2772

This really does depend however on the severity of your sleep problem and how long it has been an issue. It may be that if this has been so severe you would be better considering our 'Sleep Easy Solution'.

This is particularly helpful when you have trouble falling asleep or frequently wake up, staying awake for long periods during the night as it normalizes your natural sleep pattern with continued use.

What are the differences between LifeFlow® and Holosync®? +

LifeFlow® incorporates not only "Binaural" beats but also "Monaural" and "Isochronic" tones in its entrainment matrix creating a wider variety of use and benefits.

Isochronic, Monaural and Binaural each have unique benefits.

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. It is when you are in these deeper states that the brain is able to naturally release serotonin which is your body’s natural happy drug and also release chemicals including Human Growth Hormone (HGH) which slows down the ageing process, creating longevity.

Will there be continued support? +

Absolutely! Project Meditation® offers Lifetime support via email and by way of the community forum www.project-meditation.org/community/. Our commitment to supporting you is an area we feel we excel, leaving you feeling well informed and confident with LifeFlow® at all times. All questions are answered in full asap!

We only progress as a company when you progress and begin enjoying the benefits promised!

Will I still benefit if I fall asleep? +

The entrainment will continue to work if you fall asleep and this happens to many LifeFlow® participants in the early days.

You are beginning to entrain your brain and increase whole brain functioning in a gradual process of self improvement and the more you listen to the tracks, the quicker you're brain will be at locking onto the various targeted frequencies. You will very quickly, with consistent use of the program, notice you are staying awake for longer periods of time, until finally the whole duration.

Another reason you probably feel so tired initially is because you haven't been so relaxed for a long time. This is normal and will soon pass!

I don't hear the entrainment tones! +

Hearing the entrainment waves audibly makes no difference at all in how effective they are. Some people like to hear them, some find them distracting. It's really just personal preference, but either way the entrainment works just the same.

I really want to listen to the free LifeFlow® demo. Where can I find it? +

Must I practice a meditation technique to benefit from LifeFlow®? +

NO... but some people choose to use the LifeFlow® brainwave entrainment program to further their progress in an already chosen meditation practice. Meditation is only one activity that may be enhanced by LifeFlow®.www.project-meditation.org/community/learn-how-you-can-benefit-project-meditation/

When you are relaxed and at ease your brain emits far more alpha waves than when you are mentally busy. Listening to the various levels of LifeFlow® while simply relaxing can enhance your experience of relaxation which, in turn, can enhance your sense of well-being, reduce stress, improve immune system function and offers a host of other extremely beneficial effects, not least whole brain synchronization.

Here's a recent study that explains the benefits of Brainwave Entrainment:

Using LifeFlow®

Do I need to use headphones with LifeFlow®? +

Monaural and Isochronic waves do not require headphones to work. And when used over open speakers, you gain the added benefit of their sound waves penetrating your entire body (not just your ears).

So whether or not you use headphones, Instant Tri-Wave Technology provides superior results over any other type of entrainment product.

If I want to use headphones do I need to purchase special ones? +

Any good quality pair of headphones will do, as long as they are not automatically changing or filtering any frequencies i.e. they just play the sound as it's delivered. If they come with any switches for "bass enhancement" or "movie setting" or suchlike, then these should be turned off to ensure they do not effect the entrainment frequencies.

How many minutes do I need to listen to LifeFlow? +

Each LifeFlow® track is 40 minutes, beginning and ending at the same frequency so you can reach your targeted brainwave state and rest there for the time you decide suits your personal lifestyle.

You may feel that a few minutes a day is all that you want or have time for, still you have the option to meditate or relax for longer if you prefer or time allows.

Just as you exercise your body to feel better and improve your physical health, stimulating the brain in this manner “exercises” the brain, bringing better mental and emotional health and increased intellectual functioning.

Do I need to close my eyes whilst listening? +

We recommend you allow your eyes to close for meditation and/or relaxation. Here is what we recommend in the instructions…

How to use LifeFlow® for either meditation or relaxation

Sit or lie down, get comfortable and make sure you are somewhere that you won’t be disturbed. Turn off your phone and any other devices or equipment that might cause disruption. It’s preferable if the lighting is somewhat dim or even off.

Now, press play, close your eyes gently, take a comfortable deep breath in, pause just a moment, then let the breath out just slightly slower than normal and relax. Repeat the deep breathing two more times, then, if you already have an established technique for meditation, you may begin practicing it while the LifeFlow® track plays quietly in the background.

If you want to simply relax, just remain as you are, relaxing, breathing, relaxing and breathing while LifeFlow® plays quietly in the background. Listening to entrainment while simply relaxing can enhance your experience of relaxation which, in turn, can enhance your sense of well-being, reduce stress, improve immune system function and have a host of other beneficial effects.

You can play Optimal Learning, Creative Flow, Awaken and Nirvana with eyes open while you are doing a variety of activities e.g.

  • Working at your computer
  • Studying and revising
  • Creative work etc

There are numerous posts within the community of people benefiting from playing the various tracks to help their children focus on homework, ease into sleep, relax their pets etc.

Should I use headphones or earbuds to benefit from the LifeFlow® Audio Technology? +

You may use either. It really is personal choice and what suits you best! Most headphones have a frequency range of 20Hz to 20,000Hz or even 22,000Hz. So, when you are purchasing your headphones, just make sure they go as low as 20Hz and you will be just fine.

Michael recommends that LifeFlow® is listened to with regular stereo headphones, some types of headphones (often more expensive) can alter the audio matrix of the tracks and in turn could make the LifeFlow® tracks ineffective. If you're unsure if you're headphones are suitable, feel free to contact our support team.

How often can I listen to LifeFlow®? +

You may or may not know that you can listen to LifeFlow® as it is or if you choose to use to practice a meditation technique alongside, you may do so.

Some people prefer to simply listen to their current level daily, eyes closed, comfortably sitting/reclining or lying down in a place where there will be no distractions.

If at times you find it challenging finding the time to listen for a full 40 or 60 minutes, don't worry. 15-20 minutes will work wonders for the productivity of the rest of your day. If you listen in the evenings after a busy day, then it will wind you down nicely. If you manage to listen during the day, you will feel re-energized for the rest of it.

As you may be aware, meditation can bring up repressed feelings and sensations, sometimes even things we didn't know we were carrying around with us. Bringing up these hidden things can give the impression to a person that they just "came out of nowhere". Meditating with the LifeFlow® brainwave entrainment program will result in quicker and deeper meditation sessions, hence the reason we do suggest not over meditating too early on in the program.

If you choose to meditate along side as you are listening to your current level, we would advise you do this once daily.

If you have time and wish to listen again, this is fine (though this second time without meditating).

The LifeFlow® Tracks

What is the Schumann Resonance in LifeFlow® 7 +

LifeFlow® 7 has been specifically designed using the precise frequency of the 7.83Hz (Schumann Resonance) And what’s more, because LifeFlow® is uniquely designed to allow listening over open speakers as well as headphones, you can bathe your entire home in the earth’s natural EMF protection frequency.

The scientists explain that since life began, the earth has been surrounding and protecting all living things with a natural frequency pulsation of 7.83Hz known as the (Schumann Resonance) and how the wide spectrum of artificial man-made EMF radiation masks this protective 7.83Hz frequency of the Earth.

One documentary states…

“We’ve immersed ourselves in an ocean of electromagnetic radiation. It’s all around us now, invisible, we can’t see it but we know it’s there. Every time you lift up your mobile phone, you know it’s there. It’s impossible to turn the clock back but we need to be aware of the adverse health effects so that we have the choice of taking precaution against the exposures.

The scientists explain how the adverse affects of exposure to EMF are vast and appear to occur over prolonged periods of time; how statistical analysis suggest cancer, hypertension, cardio, neurological, leukaemia, Alzheimer’s, reproductive and other diseases are some of these.

They show how exposing people to the Schumann Resonance has the effect of "protecting" them from electromagnetic field radiation.

Due to popular demand for the Schumann Resonance, we also incorporated the earths natural protection frequency within an exquisite collection of Classical Music known as “Classical Magic” and “Peace and Harmony”

Here’s what one Doctor and Community member have to say…

"Classical Magic" is a grouping of wonderful classical music with the LifeFlow™ technology woven underneath it. I have found that this is great background music during patient treatments. Patients often go to sleep and tell me that they wake up feeling like they have slept for hours and that they feel deeply calm inside. I often do Craniosacral work and having the patient relax fully allows me to do my best work...

“I love Peace & Harmony. I listen to it on headphones, and sometimes just put it on speaker. Last night, I "looped" it on the player, and it filled the room for about 2 or 3 hours, while I did stuff and watched TV. I think it blankets the room with a wonderful, gentle energy. It's getting a lot of use, at my place.”

What are Creative Flow and Optimal Learning and how can they help me? +

Creative Flow has a specifically chosen frequency from within the Theta range which is great for creativity and problem solving.

Optimal learning has a carefully chosen frequency within the Alpha range commonly named by scientists as “The super learning state”.

Although you can meditate to these bonus tracks, they have been specifically designed to listen with or without headphones while you're studying, relaxing, engaging in creative projects, reading, at the computer etc. You can listen to these at any time and for as long as you wish.

Here are a few comments from posts in the community forum of how different people benefit from these bonus tracks:-

What are the frequencies of the LifeFlow® levels? +

Here are the frequencies of the LifeFlow® tracks:

LifeFlow® 10, 9 and 8 are various levels of Alpha brain waves.
LifeFlow® 7, 6, 5 and 4 are various levels within the Theta brain waves and
LifeFlow® 3, 2 and 1 are various levels within Delta brain waves.

Brainwave States & Meditation

How does each LifeFlow® level differ? +

Each level has been carefully designed to gradually help you achieve the progressively deeper and deeper levels of rewarding and pleasurable meditation. Although all of the 10 levels are centered around the natural flow of water i.e. the rainforest, the thunderstorm, the ocean etc each level has different background sounds.

The series begins with you listening to LifeFlow® 10 which focuses on a mid - Alpha meditative state. You then progress each month to a deeper level of meditation until you eventually reach LifeFlow® 1 which is a deep Delta meditative state. This is the state known for deep bodily rejuvenation, science tells us that in this state we naturally release HGH (human growth hormone) which we release much less of as we age. The benefits of this alone are huge and range from higher energy levels and youthful complexion to name a few.

The below link explains why each new level builds a perfect foundation for the next:

Feelings Associated With LifeFlow®

What’s the solution to resistance? +

Meditation allows you to gradually release backlogs of stress and suppressed emotions. In order to do this, suppressed emotions will at some point be brought to the surface during or outside of meditation to allow them to be released. The first thing to remember is that the fact they're coming up at all is a great thing.

Those feelings and memories have been buried deep down inside you. You may not have been entirely conscious of them, but they've been in there, tainting and poisoning you. Some of them may have been working on you for a very long time. Now they're coming out, and as they emerge where you can see them it allows you to deal with them. This robs them of their power to covertly damage you any longer.

With this in mind, if you occasionally feel irritable, restless, agitated or even angry during or outside of meditation, it’s highly probable that you are resisting something that is trying to surface.

Understand, it isn’t the actual suppressed emotion that is making you feel like this; it is the resistance itself that is causing the discomfort.

The solution to resisting is to simply and unemotionally observe any unwanted emotions with unattached curiosity. Don’t try to resist or repress them. They cannot hurt you because they are only a memory – something that happened when you were small and powerless. Welcome whatever comes up, and simply observe it with great curiosity and indifference. When you observe anything that does not serve you well, in the state of conscious awareness it simply loses it’s power and fritters away.

Here’s a famous quote worth remembering…

“Fear knocked on the door, courage answered and there was no one there”

Will I experience overwhelm? +

Brainwave entrainment and Meditation can bring up repressed feelings and sensations, sometimes even things we didn't know we were carrying around with us. Bringing up these hidden things can give the impression to a person that they just "came out of nowhere". You may at times notice this yourself and if and when you do, the reason will often be due to you sub consciously resisting whatever is coming up to be released. Whenever you feel any discomfort during or after meditation, it simply means you are resisting and it is the resistance itself that is causing the discomfort. The below link will explain this in more detail:

www.project-meditation.org/community/meditation-chatter-box/317-you-resisting.html

One very simple but not easy solution to resisting is to simply and unemotionally try to observe your thoughts and feelings with unattached curiosity. With consistent practice, observing will become so much easier until you realize that you're no longer reacting. Simply accept whatever thoughts and feelings you experience, and just observe them, unemotionally. Just be aware of them and watch them with great curiosity and indifference. When you consciously and calmly observe anything that does not serve you well it will simply fritter away.

Most people do not embrace nor enjoy change and feel threatened by it because they feel comfortable and safe the way they are. When change occurs, fear and the resistance to change follow, even if it appears evident that some benefits would be gained. Whenever people resist something, they inevitably experience discomfort and suffer.

So how do you observe an emotion?

To observe or be aware of an emotion is basically the same as observing a thought. The only difference being instead of the thought being in your head, an emotion has a strong physical element and therefore it is first and foremost felt in the body. Allow the emotion to be there without becoming attached to it or identifying it with yourself. When you consciously observe the emotion or sensation it will lose its power and leave.

A guiding principle always to be kept firmly in mind is that entrainment is not causing the brain to experience any brainwave state outside of its natural capabilities. And for the states of Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta, these four states are experienced by every one of us virtually every day many, many times.

Every night when you lay down to sleep you begin in Beta and descend through all the states down to Delta then come back up again and repeat this whole cycle every 60 to 90 minutes. All a brainwave entrainment track does is encourage the brain to produce the exact same natural frequencies it is going to produce while you sleep. So whether you use an entrainment track today or not, at some point you are going to go into those brainwave states all on your own, and you're going to do it multiple times.

The difference between using entrainment versus simply going to sleep is that during entrainment you remain conscious whereas during sleep you allow conscious awareness to fade away. And because you release it you are not aware of any feelings that might arise as the various brainwave states develop. During entrainment you remain aware and you recognize feelings and perhaps even a few physical sensations that have always been there but that you were not aware of because the conscious mind was sleeping.

This is very similar to having feelings, thoughts and even physical sensations arise during meditation. It isn't that the meditative state "produced" these things. It simply allowed them to rise to the surface unimpeded by the normal thinking mind, but while awareness is still high. So the experiences that have been simmering down in our depths "seem" to appear because of meditation. But we know those experiences were always there. We were just too preoccupied or too unconscious to notice them before.

Is it normal to feel physical sensations during or after listening to LifeFlow®? +

YES!... but try not to get drawn into the trap of trying to understand every twitch, itch or fuzzy swirl you feel you experience when meditating with LifeFlow® entrainment tracks. Some people say they feel euphoric, their hands feels hot, their feet feel cold, they feel like they're floating, they feel like they're sinking...

You will never come to the end of the list of things people say they experience. Truth be told, a tremendous number of these experiences are simply the result of expectations.

Your Health & LifeFlow®

Will LifeFlow® still work for me if I have a hearing impairment? +

Yes, because LifeFlow® tri-wave technology incorporates Binaural, Monaural and Isochronic waves. A very close friend of my family is clinically deaf. After using various entrainment tracks over a number of years, and then using LifeFlow he stated…

“LifeFlow tracks vs. a track with only binaural waves is the equivalent of giving a blind person a book in Braille rather than a standard printed book”

If your hearing problem is related to low Hz frequencies and/or if it pertains to decibel volume then very likely the binaurals will not produce much effect for you, so for entrainment purposes it would be better for you to listen over open speakers allowing the waves to interact with your whole body. If your condition affects your hearing at high Hz frequencies and not low ones then stimulation via binaural waves will not be affected by your condition. I would use the LifeFlow® series the same as anyone. Both with and without headphones. That way you will find out which you prefer or you may realize that both ways are beneficial to you. It may be that binaural beats are still effective for you – however if they are not as beneficial, Isochronic and Monaural waves will still be extremely beneficial to you.

Will LifeFlow® work for me if I suffer from Tinnitus? +

Tinnitus is that "ringing" people hear in their ears. The most commonly accepted medical explanation is that the person is actually hearing the movement of blood through the capillaries inside the ears, but not everyone in the medical community accepts that as being the complete answer. In any case, entrainment waves are not perceived as musical tones because they are so low. The lowest frequency the human ear can interpret as having a musical pitch to it is 20Hz. The vast majority of entrainment programs target Alpha waves or below and all of these are lower than 20Hz.

So Tinnitus, while it is heard as a sort of high-pitched ringing in the ears, would not be masking or competing with entrainment waves since they are not going to be heard as a pitch anyway. They will just be those "beating" or "drumming" sounds if they are consciously heard at all. And no ringing in the ears will impair the beating or drumming, so Tinnitus should have no adverse affect.

Can I benefit from LifeFlow® if I suffer from epilepsy? +

Unfortunately this is still an unknown and so it is safer to err on the side of caution. We do state, as do most other brainwave entrainment manufacturers, that brainwave entrainment should be avoided if you suffer from epilepsy, unless it has been prescribed by your doctor:-
