Let’s take a look at three tips for using your isochronic tone recordings most effectively.
What Are Isochronic Tones? Firstly though, we’ll take a very brief look at what isochronic tones actually are, in case you’re unfamiliar with them. They’re a form of brainwave entrainment technology; sound-based brain entrainment involves listening to a recording of rapidly repeating sounds of specific frequencies.
These have a direct influence on the brain, thanks to a natural phenomenon called the ‘frequency following response’, where the brain has a tendency to match the frequency of its own brainwave output to that of the sounds it is hearing.
Since different mental states are associated with the production of brainwaves of different frequencies, this makes brain wave entrainment a useful method for controlling your mental state. It is easier than using traditional meditation techniques, which can often require months or years to master.
Binaural beats are the most popular and widely known form of brainwave entrainment, but isochronic tones are rapidly becoming more widespread. They’re especially popular because for many purposes they’re more effective than binaural beats, because they feature clearly separated pulses of sound which appeared to be easier for the brain to entrain to.
Although many people have great success with these tones, they’re not guaranteed to work in every case (just like any other method), but there are some things you can do to get the most from your isochronic recordings.
Use Headphones -Tip number one is to listen through headphones. Now, one of the advantages of these tones over binaural beats is that headphones aren’t strictly necessary for their use.
However, it’s still recommended that you use them if possible, because using headphones helps to eliminate external distractions very effectively, and many people find that having the sound source close to the ears also helps to make the recording more powerful.
Listen Consistently-Secondly, in most cases you’ll get best results if you listen to your recording on a regular basis. There are some people who can listen to an isochronic recording for the first time and get mind blowing results – if you’re lucky, that may happen for you as well, but you shouldn’t count on it.
As with anything else, isochronic tone meditation becomes more effective with consistent practice, so if you’re not getting wonderful results within the first few days, don’t give up and decide to isochronic tones aren’t for you – chances are, your brain just needs more time to adapt.
Choose a Recording That’s Designed For Your Purpose
Lastly, it’s important to select an isochronic recording which has been specifically designed for the purpose you have in mind. If you are trying to do something which requires your brain to be in the alpha state, there’s no point in using an isochronic recording which takes you into the theta region!
This may sound obvious, but sometimes people use ‘general purpose’ type recordings that don’t actually target the correct frequencies for their aim, so spend a bit of time finding the best recording for your needs, otherwise you may be wasting your time.
