The Ajna Lamp is a brainwave entrainment tool to help you to relax and access deeper subconscious levels of the mind. The Light uses very powerful LED lights that flicker at varying speeds and intensities The user’s brainwaves are entrained through these specific frequencies between 1Hz and 50Hz producing various trance states. This can range from an easy relaxed state to a very deep meditative state. The light sequences bring about a very magical and unique visionary experience. The visuals are produced in the mind rather than seen directly with the eyes and so can draw the user into altered states of consciousness and also out of body. As soon as the lights stop the user is able to return to the normal waking brainwave frequency of beta.
Brainwave states fall within five key ranges. These states range from deep dreamless sleep to a state of high arousal. Although all levels of brainwaves are present in people at all times, one may be more prominent depending on activity level. These “brainwave patterns” are associated with specific states of awareness or consciousness. Specific brainwave patterns are known to occur with dream states, normal waking states, deep states of relaxation, etc.
Gamma Waves (30-100Hz, particularly 40Hz) – Conscious Awareness
The highest, fastest frequency waves associated with insight and high-level information processing. Gamma waves have been observed in Tibetan Buddhist monks during a 2004 study with eight long-term monks in meditation. These gamma oscillations were the largest seen in humans.
Effects of flickering light on consciousness
Flickering lights entrain certain brainwave patterns in the brain to bring about a more relaxed, meditative state. This is also known as the hypnagogic state, between wakefulness and sleep. Since the discovery of fire it has been known that gazing into the flames of a flickering light can lead to altered states of consciousness. Native Americans and Shamans are known for seeking visions through looking into a flickering fire to experience deep peace or enter into other worlds or dimensions.
The deeper states activate the pineal gland (the third eye) due to the bright light moving through the retina and cranium. When activated, the pineal gland produces DMT (dimethyl tryptamine) from the naturally occurring amino acid tryptophan. In a similar way to hallucinogenic drugs, the user can gain great spiritual insights during this process, but the great advantage of using the Ajna Light is that it does not change the brain chemistry, and therefore the effect stops as soon as the lights stop.
USE OF SOUND
The Ajna Light has over 300 demo tracks as mp3 files
Sound and music have been used since ancient times for brainwave entrainment in order to reach higher states of consciousness and trance. Rhythmic repetitive sounds such as drumming and chanting, and even natural sounds of rivers and oceans slow the mind and bring the listener into a deeply relaxed state. You connect to the sounds in a much deeper way when the brain is entrained creating meaning and clarity. An MP3 player is incorporated into the light with 300 demo songs included consisting of solfeggio frequencies, ambient, classical and mantra. You can also upload your own music for your own personal journey.
USE OF LIGHT
There are 18 light sequences installed in the Lamp
The Light sequence Programs deliver varying speeds and intensities of stroboscopic light designed for your own unique journey in a personalized way. Using controlled computer interaction of light sources the experience is in total control of by the user through the iLST Light Sequence Generator, and is able to stop the experience at any point. The light flicker rate and light brightness as well as the sound frequency can be adjusted while different brainwave entrainments are explored.
The effect of sound and light together
Humans have explored the possibilities of combining both light flicker frequencies with rhythmic sound stimulation for thousands of years. Trance states were often reached in ancient times through repetitive drumming and clapping, and flickering lights produced by candles or bonfires. As the sound of the Ajna Light plays, the lights flicker in perfect synchronicity that adds a whole new dimension to the experience. Brainwave entrainment through light and sound therefore has a powerful effect on changing consciousness.
