• Due to a popular request, I have decided to upload the highest quality audio files to my website. This allows anybody to download the audio files used in each video before it's compressed. These are large files, and it costs money to host them on a server, so they are being sold for less than the price of a cup of coffee.

An attempt to simplify for the sake of brevity: Neural entrainment is the theory that our brains have a tendency to synchronize themselves to external stimulation, which could include auditory, visual, tactile or electromagnetic stimuli. The average human brain contains approximately 80+ billion neurons which communicate with each other to form our thoughts, emotions and behavior. When our neurons communicate in mass, it produces a synchronized electrical pulse known as a brainwave. With the use of neural entrainment, our brainwaves can align with this auditory stimuli, and as a result we can stimulate our neurons and brains in ways that could positively affect our psychology and physiology.
We experience five primary brain wave ranges. They are known as Delta, Theta, Alpha, Beta and Gamma waves.
— Delta waves are the slowest of all and are defined as having a frequency range between 0-4 Hz. We experience these waves naturally when we are in the deepest of sleep or meditative states. These brainwaves send signals throughout the body to stimulate regeneration, and healthy neuro-chemistry and as a result are vital in the maintenance of health and psychological well-being.
— Theta waves are faster than Delta waves, and range between 4 - 8 Hz. We experience these waves when sleeping or during deep meditation. These waves are the "twilight" state normally experienced between waking and falling asleep. They are commonly experienced in the NREM sleep stage. They are beneficial for meditation, learning, memory, sub-conscious organization, intuitive thinking and trance states. It induces a feeling of a "dream like" state. These waves are important for memory consolidation, the maintenance of health and psychological well-being. When used properly, Theta waves can offer a sense of interface with parts of the mind which are responsible for subconscious reprogramming. The ideation that takes place during this state by-passes natural brain filters. Individuals may experience a flow state when their brains are producing or synchronized to these waves.
— Alpha waves are faster than Theta waves, and range between 8 - 12 Hz. We experience these brainwaves in meditative states or wakefulness. These brainwaves promote a presence of mind, clarity, creativity, and stress reduction. It is a resting state for the brain and aids mental coordination, the learning process, and more. Many report this as an especially comfortable state of mind.
