Frequency following response

Shamans are known for their ability to enter altered states of consciousness at will, allowing them to access the non-physical world and communication with its spirit denizens. These ‘magical’ abilities are not restricted to shamans, but are natural human traits that lay dormant in most people. Although tribal shamans are traditionally chosen by a higher power, in recent decades there has been a surge of interest in shamanism, and many people would now like to explore ‘shaman consciousness’ and the spirit worlds for themselves.

Thanks to a natural phenomenon known as the ‘frequency following response’, the brain will synchronize with, or ‘entrain’ to the external rhythm. Brainwaves of certain frequencies are associated with particular states of consciousness, so using brainwave entrainment can help you to access different states of consciousness relatively easily, by changing the frequency of the stimulus. The three main types are binaural beats, monaural beats, and isochronic tones.

Achieving a similar state of consciousness to that of shamans as they journey in the spirit worlds is relatively easy if you use a brainwave stimulation recording that includes the correct frequencies. Shamanic abilities such as astral travel and spirit awareness are associated with the production of theta brainwaves (in the 4 – 8 Hz range).

Theta waves are produced in dreaming sleep, but the theta state is also linked with the kind of deep trance state.

The fundamental purpose of Psytrance and Shamanic drumming is to bring you in that state and let you to dig within yourself, feel the Oneness and raise your consciousness.
