brain wave entrainment

At the root of all our thoughts, emotions and behaviours is the communication between neurons within our brains. Brain waves are produced by synchronised electrical pulses from masses of neurons communicating with each other.

Brain wave entrainment is any procedure that causes our brain wave frequencies to synchronize with a periodic stimulus sound, vibration or light, having a frequency corresponding to the intended brain-state to induce a trance, dreams, sleep or relaxation.


It is also called the Flicker-response because of how staring at a campfire or the flickering of a burning candle can lull you into a state of calmness and serenity.

Most wisdom traditions have employed methods that allow the subjects’ brain waves to slow down such as meditation, Hindu kirtan, Gregorian, Menzuma or Sufi chanting, Hebrew davening, Native American drum circles and rain chants, Tibetan prayer bowls, and whirling dervishes and African trance dancing.

By tuning the brain wave rhythms of the person to specific frequencies, people can experience

specific emotional and cognitive outcomes.

Brain wave entrainment increases your brain's processing power and builds new neural pathways

which encourages new dendritic growth within the brain, increasing the surface area available for receiving incoming information.


Therefore the more dendrites the brain has at its disposal, the more quickly and smoothly your brain can process information. This allows your brain to operate at its full potential rather than only using a portion of its potential.


Benefits of entrainment may also counteract the debilitating effects of aging. 


Balancing of the brain's electrical activity through whole brain functioning, allowing the various parts of our brain to start to function as a whole,and as these neural pathways begin to fire more rapidly we to reach greater levels of performance and higher thinking ability,  which in turn produces intense creativity, clarity and inspiration.

There are five main frequency brain waves:  Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta, and Gamma.

These brain waves are in constant motion, the brain produces consistent waves at all frequencies.
Everything we do or say is regulated by the frequency of brain waves.


Gamma Waves (25 - 100 Hz)

Gamma brain waves are a frequency pattern of normal brain activity that measures between 25 and 100 Hz, with around 40 Hz being typical in humans are the fastest brain wave frequency with the smallest amplitude. They are associated with the “feeling of blessings” reported by experienced meditators, such as monks and nuns.


Gamma waves are associated with peak concentration and high levels of cognitive functioning.

Neuroscientists believe that gamma waves are able to link information from all parts of the brain.


The gamma wave originates in the thalamus and moves from the back of the brain to the front and back again 40 times per second. This rapid “full sweep” action makes the gamma state one of peak mental and physical performance. Gamma is the brainwave state of being “in the zone.”

Everyone has gamma brain wave activity, but the number of gamma waves produced varies.

Low amounts of gamma brain wave activity have been linked to learning difficulties, poor memory, and impaired mental processing.

Beta Waves (14-28 Hz)

The Beta wave has a frequency of 14-28 cycles per second. Beta is the state in which you we are active and alert. When we talk to others, for example, our mind is in Beta.


Alpha Waves (7-14 Hz)

In a Alpha state, our brain waves move at a frequency between 7-14 cycles per second.

The frequency of Alpha is a mental state of deep relaxation and meditation.

Alpha is the bridge between Beta and Theta Wave.

Alpha governs daydreams, fantasy, and denotes a state of consciousness detached and relaxed.

Theta Waves (4 – 8 Hz)

Theta Brain Waves occur most often in sleep but are also dominant during deep meditation.

In theta we are in a dream; vivid imagery, intuition and information beyond normal consciousness awareness. It helps us improve our intuition, creativity, and makes us feel more natural.

This is also the Flow State Zone.

Theta brain waves can be considered the subconscious; they govern the part of our mind that lies between the conscious and the unconscious and retain memories and feelings. They also direct our beliefs and our behavior.

Theta waves are always creative, characterized by feelings of inspiration and very spiritual.
It is believed that this mental state allows us to act below the level of the conscious mind.

It is characterized by a feeling of ‘oneness’ and connection with everything in the universe.

Creativity is heightened, insights and inspirations flow effortlessly into your mind.​

Delta Waves (0 – 4 Hz) - The Unconscious or Supra-Conscious Mind

Delta Brain Waves are the slowest but loudest brain waves (low frequency).

It is normally experienced in the deepest of sleep cycles and it plays a vital role in health and well being, dreamless sleep as it’s linked with deep healing and regeneration.

It is also found most often in infants, young children and in very deep, transcendental meditation.


During Delta your body repairs itself on a cellular level.

Delta is actually needed to renew the body.

The highly beneficial chemical Human Growth Hormone has been shown to be released by the brain when it experiences frequencies that fall within the delta range.

Delta brain wave programs are an ideal choice for when you want to access your subconscious for deep and powerful reprogramming.  When you enter Delta you are opening a door to your unconscious giving you the power to receive powerful insights that you were previously not aware of.

whole brain integration

The human brain has two halves—left and right. The left hemisphere is the logical mind that sees things in detail, analyzing in a linear way. The right hemisphere holds a holistic perspective, it sees the bigger picture rather than the fine details.

The overview of the right brain is there to help you make healthy choices that will contribute to the kind of life you want to live. The left brain works out  the fine details needed to make these choices happen. In order to live a healthy and fulfilling life we need both hemispheres of the brain to work in conjunction with one another.

" For nearly a century, Western society in general, and American society in particular, has been dominated by a form of thinking and an approach to life that is narrowly reductive and deeply analytical. Ours has been the age of the “knowledge worker,” the well-educated manipulator of information and deployer of expertise. But that is changing.


Thanks to an array of forces—material abundance that is deepening our non-material yearnings, globalization that is shipping white-collar work overseas, and powerful technologies that are eliminating certain kinds of work altogether—we are entering a new age. It is an age animated by a different form of thinking and a new approach to life…


Today, the defining skills of the previous era—the “left brain” capabilities that powered the Information Age—are necessary but no longer sufficient. And the capabilities we once disdained or thought frivolous—the “right-brain” qualities of inventiveness, empathy, joyfulness, and meaning—increasingly will determine who flourishes and who flounders. For individuals and families, and organizations, professional success and personal fulfillment now require a whole new mind. "

How does Pyradym assist in Whole Brain Integration?

Imagine there was something you could do daily that would simultaneously:

• Build your core strength
• Release stress and tension
• Enhance whole-brain thinking (get your left and right hemispheres to work together)
• Calm your mind
• Energize your body

Pyradym has the ability to create altered states of awareness through brain entrainment and that reinforces the physioacoustic aspect of the instrument thereby enhancing the effectiveness of both modalities.

How do I know when both hemispheres are working in conjunction?

You know those moments when everything just flows? You're in the conference room brainstorming with your team and you can just feel the energy, the cohesion. Or you're writing your book and it's just pouring out of you, the words an effortless stream of brilliance.

What is Brain Integration?

Brain integration refers to the process when the brain is listening to and interpreting concepts and thought patterns through nerve impulses carried from the nervous system to the brain within electrical synapses.  In other words, Brain Integration is simply information received and delivered through brain cellular pathways.

Benefits of Brain Integration Energy Healing

Brain Integration is a type of Advanced Energy Healing work.  It begins to restore the brain and nervous system to a state of greater balance and the body to a state of wellness.  This healing works to clear and remove stuck energies in the entire body. Brain Integration helps Children and Adults change the path they are on immediately by supporting healthy brain function so they can achieve the transformation they desire.


So why is this important?

Brain Integration is important because for many people there are multitudes of blockages that can impact efficient processing in the brain.


Blockages can cause us to have decreased memory functions, unstable moods, we can be lacking in clarity and have difficulty processing sensory information.


Let’s delve into some causes of these blockages to healthy brain integration and learn how Brain Integration Energy Healing can help.

Physical Level

Most commonly, our nutrition is out of balance. We may eat unhealthy foods at unhealthy times and in unhealthy amounts (less or more depending on the consumer). Those foods and other environmental toxins can hugely affect cellular brain function. Other physical attributes are pathogens, toxins, stress, interrupted sleep patterns, to name a few.

Emotional Level

On the emotional level, our brain function or brain processing ability can be decreased by the way we feel about life in general. For example, if you didn’t sleep well through the night and you feel frustrated about that, that frustration (stress) causes interrupted signals through the nervous system and the brain, which results in increased levels of tiredness. Stress like this can create suppression or overproduction of the balance in the neuro hormones and transmitters of the brain and nervous system. Emotions can and do change or alter our brain chemistry.

Mental Level

Mentally, our thoughts, when we are stuck in beliefs about how our body and life in general works, keeps our brain chemistry gets stuck too. For example, if you have a tendency to think analytically and logically, you are unconsciously working your left brain. You are building “mental muscles” or increased neural pathways in the left hemisphere and many times the right hemisphere does get left behind. This creates hemispheric imbalances, and this could look like limited interest in art, music, intuition, and emotional awareness and understanding takes a dip.

Spiritual Level

When we get bogged down with “spiritual issues” we create a wide variety of problems on many levels. Spiritual issues can be anything from negative thought forms, energy that plagues us, conflicting or discordant energies, ancestral issues and entanglements, life lessons that keep repeating – you name it, we’ve seen it. The suffering that occurs on this level is often rationalized by the brain. What we think we are in conflict with, is really driven by something else.

When multiple energetic levels are draining resources from the brain and nervous system, health begins to breakdown and fail. If the underlying problems do not get resolved or offered a resolution the disease state can enter the body, including the brain and nervous system.
