Entrainment stimulates the brain through the ears with audio frequencies with which to guide you into different states of mind. Since different brain frequencies can be targeted and changed at will, it is helpful to understand the different frequencies and how they contribute to your different states of consciousness.
Brainwave Frequencies Explained
If we use the word entrainment interchangeably with words like focus, meditation, or flow, then listening to music in your car is a form of entrainment; even more so when you’re singing along. But when we listen to harmonic tones which were composed specifically for entrainment, your brain synchronizes much faster than with regular music.
When we use the word “entrainment,” to refer to a state of mind, we could substitute other words, such as “hypnotized, mesmerized, tranced out, spaced out,” and many others to describe the same state of mind.
Going to a club or a concert, and even going to church, all involve periods of group entrainment, where everyone is “vibing” on the same channel or frequency. Using words to describe how we feel when we’re connected to each other shouldn’t be considered “taboo” or “new-agey” or “esoteric” or “religious” or “not scientifically proven.”
