i A w a k e Technologies Biofield Brainwaves Meditation (2016)
iAwake's pioneering catalog consists of powerful sound sessions combining the latest advances in psychoacoustics and energy medicine. All of our products have been carefully engineered and tested to make sure that they increase our body-mind coherence, gently taking our emotions and consciousness towards better functioning states.
iAwake's unique approaches to session design entrain both our nervous and our subtle energy systems, by combining traditional entrainment methods with newer applications based on the power of resonance. In addition to increasing intelligence, creativity, flow, and skilfulness in practically any activity that requires the human body-mind, with iAwake Technologies, we enter into deep healing brainwave states almost immediately while listening to these audio tracks.
We are living in the golden age of understanding the human brain: neuroscience has learned more about the human brain in the last few years than in the previous 5,000. We now understand that the brain is an incredibly evolutionary and dynamic living system that is truly the most complex and wondrous organism in the known universe. We have discovered that the brain is capable of growth and transformation throughout our lives and has the capacity to keep functioning at ever-higher levels.
Binaural - Monaural - Isochronic - Biofield - Psychoacoustic - Fractal
Binaural beats were discovered in 1839 by a German experimenter, H. W. Dove, and first described by Oster in the early 70s. How exactly the brain produces the perception of these beats is unclear, but they are said to be produced as the olivary body of the brain tries to "locate" the direction of the sound in response to two different tones being presented separately to each ear - which, if you think about it, is not something that would happen in nature unless via technological aids. The resulting phantom frequency (which is not heard in the ordinary sense, as it's created inside the cranium) equals the difference between the tones, and prolonged exposure to its beating has a marked yet still debated psychoacoustic effect: while they do not seem to significantly impact the thalamus (no measurable entrainment response), their relaxing, even hypnotic effects can tangibly affect mood and performance and are enjoyed by most listeners.
Monaural beats result from the combination of two pure tones that produce a rhythmic beat. While binaural beats are considered an auditory illusion that elicits what might be described as a form of cognitive entrainment, monaural beats are considered an acoustic, purely physical phenomenon that directly affects the basilar membrane, where the sensory cells of hearing reside. Monaural beats aren't headphones-dependent and have repeatedly shown strong cortical responses during EEG-based experiments (evidence of detectable electrical activity indicating entrainment is taking place).
Isochronic tones are sharp and regular pulses of sound created by a single tone being turned on and off at fast speed. The first study showing their effectiveness was published in 1981 by Arturo Manns. Contrary to binaural beats, isochronic tones don't need to be played back through headphones to preserve their effectiveness, which in that same study demonstrated a significant reduction in facial tension, insomnia, and muscular and emotional pain.
Biofield entrainment is a digitally infused subtle energy process designed to affect our subtle body. As energetic signatures "pull" our energetic system, we can reach states of greater coherence that take our experience beyond brainwaves. Different energy qualities correlate to various states of consciousness, so our energy fields can be entrained to help us function at higher levels of order. For example, as you entrain to the energy of the golden mean, you might feel or benefit from its profound centering and balancing qualities.
Psychoacoustic entrainment uses multi-layered sound frequencies that create musical and organic entrainment effects through the musical soundtrack itself, producing deep, relaxing trance states. Through hypnotic cues and textures of musical phrasing, vibro-acoustic frequencies (low resonating tones), and psychoacoustics (sounds that spark mental and emotional responses in the listener), this technology is designed to create a more organic entrainment for the listener.
Fractal entrainment is a novel technique inspired by nature (bio-mimicry). It is based on how the unpredictable cycles of change in nature have a harmonic precision to them that seems to emerge from similar, yet never identical repeating patterns. Its innovative compositions are filled with complex and ever-changing sonic scenes that mimic nature's irregularly regular approach, and are specially designed to meet listeners where they are, allowing the mind to gently turn inwards. Fractal entrainment is a "liquid" entrainment experience, in which sessions usually unfold in a more dynamic and open way than those designed with traditional methods: rather than targeting specific brainwave frequencies, the moving sounds come "alive" and induce a state of natural resonance.
comment: The key component in these audio files are hypnotic subliminals, but this is never mentioned in their documents. You may ask yourself why this is so. Their explanation about their bio-fields is pseudo-scientific to say the least, and yet they do seem to work. They claim that they even work without any headphones or speakers. Don't ask me how. Please note the illuminati style occult symbology on the covers of these audio files. Listen to these files at your own risk. You may remember the movie iRobot, and what happens when their red light gets activated - iAwake for iRobots.
