There is a scientific principle called entrainment. If two items are vibrating side by side at different speeds then the item that vibrates at the lower speed will adjust to vibrate at the same frequency as the other object.
Examples of this are swings in a playground that are swinging out of sync and adjust. Also, in a clock store you may notice the pendulum clocks of the same size swinging back and forth in unison.
Research has been done into the brainwaves of people in relaxed meditative states, such as yogis, swamis and creative people. Dr T has incorporated these brainwave patterns into his music to entrain your mind to reach the Alpha state, which is a light meditative and relaxing state.
So, if you were to be subjected to these Alpha waves which are embedded in the relaxing sounds, your mind will reattune itself, so you can reach a similar state. This change is not permanent. Yet, the more you listen to it the more you will learn to attain these states yourself, effortlessly, when you need to.
Dr Jeffrey Thompson has done extensive research into stress and the power of relaxing music and entrainment and has used that research to create pulses, chord patterns, sounds from nature. This cd contains many sounds such as flowing water, jungle, rainfall, bird songs, whales and dolphins. Sometimes these sounds are electronically changed to accelerate the mental response.
Alpha is a state of mind associated with relaxation, and light meditation. Often, you are in this state when you close your eyes, or are on the verge of sleep. As you listen you may notice the 3D sound effects, so you can hear and feel these sounds coming from all directions around, above and through you. Mentally, this is like listening to these sounds in reality, and enhances the experience.
I have most of Dr T's systems. This one is probably the most interesting to listen to. I do strongly recommend the Awakened Mind System, which does stimulate your imagination to the point where you are floating flying in that inner world. With me, I feel like I am flying above the sea the with many different colors of sea and and sky at my disposal.
If you have never used this type of music before, don't you think you should give it a go. This program helps with problem solving, stress reduction, and relaxation.
I highly recommend another of Dr T's products Awakened Mind system, which I find very good for creativity.
I hope you find this review helpful.
