Lifeflow meditation makes you achieve a deeper state of meditation more rapidly than any other techniques. The causes are physiological; when you reach the brainwaves states of lifeflow, your brain commands your body to produce hormones and chemicals that are closely related to your feelings of well-being. The main value of this type of meditation is that it regroups various brainwaves for which every one of them the body responds differently. Merging them all togetherallows the entire brain to be stimulated and leaves amplified results.
Lifeflow meditation puts you into exceptionally profound and advantageous brainwave states easier than any other meditation technique. These states enhance your feelings of happiness and well-being, as well as your learning abilities and it reduces your stress levels. It is part of the brainwave meditation family. The regular brainwave meditations use a single type of wave; either the binaural, monaural, or isochronic tones. The asset of lifeflow meditation is that it uses all three of them in a meticulous mix.
The monaural and isochronic tones both have the benefit of being able to be listened to in the open air, without a headphones. Doing so, they have the faculty to influence the entire body with their waves in contrast with the binaural beats that have to be listened to with headphones for them to accomplish brain harmonization.
The lifeflow meditation entrainment follow a 10 step system divided in three components. The tracks from 10 to 8 are various levels of alpha brain waves, from 7 to 4 comes the theta brain waves, and the last three steps are made of a range of levels of delta brain waves. The entrainment is intended to begin with the number 10 and gradually go down the ladder to the lowest delta frequency. Even though there are nothing such as a firm rule of when to change level, the suggested timeline is to listen to a track for anywhere between 30 and 60 days prior to moving onto the next level. But in the end, it's up to you to decide when you are prepared to move on. If you feel like you need one more month with this level, do it. On the other hand, if you are a more experienced meditator, maybe you will want to move down the steps a little bit quicker. The guideline you should use to know when it's time to switch to the next step is to do it when you can really feel concrete changes in your everyday life.
The last wonderful thing I would like to bring up regarding lifeflow meditation is that it can be a lifelong practice. After you are done meditating through all the levels, you can come back to any of them, use them in any sequence, and continue to progress even more.
