Wave Synchronization and Peak Performance
probably know that our brains are divided into two hemispheres and that
in most of us one hemisphere tends to be more dominant than the other.
We tend to call this left or right brain dominant. If you are left
brained you willl tend to be more logical, detail oriented, whereas if
right brained you willl be more artistic creative emotionally
aware. The technical term for this hemispheric dominance is known as
brain lateralisation and when the brain is working in this lateralised
way, it means that the brainwave frequencies of both the two hemispheres
are out of synch.
Brain VS Synchronised Brain
fact that most of our brains are lateralised is not a problem, but what
it means is that we are not taking advantage of the tremendous potential
of our brain, we are just coasting, at best performing in an average
way, or worst, we are underachieving.
the 70’s and 80’s extensive scientific research was conducted to
better understand the significance of brainwave frequencies. The results
were so revealing, it opened up a whole new understanding about our
brain, the state of our minds, how our brainwaves correspond to our
personal experiences, and how successful people’s brainwaves differ
from everyone else’s.
became clear was that the brainwaves of highly successful
regardless of their area of expertise: business, arts, sports,
meditation, were operating differently from everyone
else. Unlike the
lateralised brains of most, the peak performers demonstrated a high
level of brainwave synchronisation and when engaged in their area of
expertise this increased.
The results of these
studies have since been corroborated with further experiments and it is
now well established that successful people use both sides of their
brains in synch more often than the average person and by doing so, slow
down their brainwave frequencies, entering them into the relaxed,
creative, regenerative states of alpha, theta and delta.
Synchronisation Slows Down Brainwaves
important aspect of brain synchronisation and its effect on performance
has to do with the brainwave frequencies in this state. When the brain
is working laterally, its brainwaves are much faster. It is operating in
Beta. Beta is our usual waking state, but it is also the state we are in
when we get stressed, anxious, tired, agitated. We literally become
‘out of synch’ with ourselves. When your brain becomes synchronised
your brainwave slows down. In the lower Beta states, you'll become relaxed, even peaceful but
you’ll remain alert. When your brainwave frequencies slows down
furhter and begins to synchronise, you’ll have entered the Alpha state, the
‘creative’ frequency and the threshold of greater awareness. The
slower your brainwaves become, the deeper you’ll go, entering the
Theta state the door way to the subconscious, the awake dreaming state,
super learning, inspirations. Going slower again you’ll enter the
Delta state a deep meditative state that is responsible for deep
healing, and free flowing intuition.
greater your brainwave synchronization becomes, the deeper you will go,
leading to what many describe as enlightenment, self-realisation,
experiential wisdom, ‘the awakened mind’.
To Increase Brainwave Synchronisation or Whole Brain Integration
Throughout history there
have been a fortunate few who have, by chance, or intuition discovered
how to become master over their mind by developing brainwave
synchronisation. This has been achieved through some form of meditation.
It is now a long established fact (substantiated by science) that
meditation synchronises brainwaves and yields a long list of very
positive effects: better health, peace, joy, happiness, benevolence,
creativity, enhanced learning/ memory, intuition, insights, awareness,
altered states, enhanced performance….
There are a wide variety
of meditation practices to choose from, and it would be wrong to say
that one is better than another. But what one must realise is that once
choosing a practice the key to success is in practicing and being
patient with that practice. Think of it as training the mind. The longer
you practice the fitter your mind will become.
But meditation is not the
only way to synchronise your brainwaves and dramatically enhance the
quality of your life. Meditation is a serious practice and requires
patience, diligence and time. Many find it difficult and hard to
sustain. For those who do not wish to adopt a meditation practice there
is another way: brain entrainment.
As a result of all that
science has uncovered about brainwaves and brainwave synchronisation
(whole brain integration), we now know how to cause our brainwaves to
synchronise. By using sound frequencies (known as binaural beats)
listened to through stereo headphones, we can now entrain our brain to
synchronise its hemispheres. It is proven, safe, easy, and enjoyable.
