Light and sound meditation with brainwave entrainment and audio visual entrainment can give you deep trance meditation results in minutes. But why use technology for meditation? What does it do? How does it work? And what if you already meditate?


Deep trance meditation with light and sound brainwave entrainment


So, you’ve learnt how to meditate. And now it’s time for a few years of consistent practice. After all., that’s what makes a monk a monk right!? And it’s how they get to a place of such calm and peace.

But hang on, I hear you say., what if I’m not that patient? Well., you don’t need to be.

My guess is that you don’t need to be sold on the idea of meditation. There’s plenty of evidence supporting the benefits of a consistent relaxation practice. You just want a fool proof way to get there consistently. And without much effort.

If you resonate with that then you are in the right place. Here’s how to achieve deep trance and meditation states in minutes… and make a monk jealous!


Is meditation a way to enlightenment


Spiritual enlightenment is seen by some as the reason for existence. And historically spirituality has been connected to elements of secrecy, wealth, and power. Devine light and sacred sound are common terms used today to describe the importance of light and sound in spirituality. And never before has spirituality been on such a rise as more and more people ‘wake up’ or have spontaneous awakenings. Meditation and quiet reflection play a big role in this evolution of humanity. Because to be enlightened, you must be able to notice more of what is already there.

How to shock a meditation teacher


I’ve been meditating for 20 years and teaching it for 10.., it would take me 5 days of focus to get to the state I’m in right now. You’ve just done me out of a job!”

Those were the first words out of my friends mouth after using a deep trance light and sound meditation session on roXiva for the first time. Well.., when I say first words.., I had to sit patiently for about 15 minutes waiting for her to open her eyes. It took that long for her to come back to some level of awareness. And this is common. As stroboscopic light and sound produces profound altered states of consciousness.

Welcome to the world of roXiva, brainwave entrainment meditation, and fast reliable ways into altered states of consciousness at the push of a button.

Choose your session, put on your headphones, lie down or relax in your favourite chair., and hit play. Within minutes you are in a meditative state that usually takes years to master.

You can choose to have a subdued experience or a more impactful one bathed in a beautiful world of colourful mandala’s and moving patterns. And you can adjust and remain in total control throughout.

How Brainwave entrainment is like deep trance meditation

So why was my friend so shocked by her roXiva session? Partly because she hadn’t had meditation as a specific goal. She had just used a session called ‘If found, return to earth’. Yes you read that right, lol. This particular session (as the name suggests) is designed to be pretty out there. A drug free psychedelic light ‘trip’ type experience with visual patterns, colours and movement made to interact with music. Psychedelic brainwave entrainment is an extension of the well known science of audio visual entrainment.

Since the invention of EEG, scientists have been able to measure the brain activity of various states of consciousness. And meditation states show some commonalities in brainwave frequencies.

RoXiva uses audio visual brainwave entrainment techniques (sometimes called a light machine or mind machine) at the leading edge of technology. And it combines light and sound to create an immersive and intense deep trance meditation experience using these same brain frequencies. People come off it feeling totally alive and conscious of themselves and the world around them. Perhaps for the first time! 

Contrast this to the unconscious dreamlike state that most zombies…, erm.., people walk around in. It’s clear why experienced meditators are so impressed with how quickly roXiva can get them there.

Why light and sound meditation stimulation is the best way to relax

Why did my friend relax so profoundly with a session that is a drug free psychedelic light trip?

This is actually quite common. It’s easy to think that the best way to use brainwave entrainment for meditation is to use the brainwave frequencies of meditation. And these are typically relaxing brainwave frequencies. However, sometimes the best way to relax is through stimulation.

The reason for this is a matter of breaking habitual thought and practice by doing something different. A form of distraction that light machines can promote quickly and reliably. Habitual thought is one of the main reasons people find it hard to change beliefs.

Secondary is an effect loosely known as an abreaction. An abreaction is a reaction different from the normal expected one. A common drug related abreaction is an example of this. This happens to hyperactive people that are prescribed drugs like Ritalin. These are prescribed to make them more ‘manageable’ to others. Ritalin is basically ‘speed’.., a recreational drug that for most people (as the name suggests) causes increased arousal and activity. But in people who might be labelled as already over aroused, it causes them to calm down.

Brainwave entrainment meditation causes dissociation

The same abreaction effect often occurs with brainwave entrainment or audio visual entrainment. For example people with ADHD or high functioning dis-orders. For them, using brain frequencies normally associated with arousal and activity.., will instead cause sleep or deep meditation and trance.

In my friends case, this was mainly a case of being in a state of excessive thought flow before the session. And if your mind is in constant thought or worry.., getting to that thoughtless relaxed state may be a challenge. Even if you are an experienced meditator. Typical meditation techniques may not work for you. However brainwave entrainment through light and sound can interrupt that pattern. Rhythmic and changing light and sound frequencies create dissociation by increasing attention on internal experience.

How does light and sound meditation technology enhance presence

When your mind is presented with increased stimulation in a unique way.., your attention is drawn away from habitual thought into the here and now. You become totally present. And that is often enough to result in a profound state of tranquillity. Mindful observation and presence, is one of the foremost goals of meditation. And is part of creating the reality you desire from the abundance of information available.

With the help of expertly crafted light and sound meditation sessions., disassociation becomes easy. Deep trance meditation helps you withdraw from the outside world. And it becomes something you relax into rather than ‘try’ to achieve.

And it is ‘trying’ that stops most meditators from getting the results they want. Encouraged by the success being enveloped in a unique world of light and sound., meditation becomes exciting and repeatable. This leads to regularity of practice. And regularity of practice is the most accurate measure of a persons success with meditation. The results go beyond that though. As can be seen in the comprehensive range of articles on this website about positive uses of brainwave entrainment technology.

Meditation brainwave entrainment – entertainment meets entrainment

I felt like I was going through tunnel after tunnel of some dreamland. The colours were amazing. Didn’t you say that it’s just white light?”

Yes is the answer to that. Just white LEDs flashing at different frequencies, durations and intensities. Stroboscopic light machines work through closed eyelids. Everything you see is your brains interpretation of what it thinks must be there based on those variables.

Light has been part of humanities evolution and celebration since the beginning of the universe and the BIG FLASH.

Lol, yeah OK it’s referred to as the BIG BANG but actually the latest scientific idea’s allow for light energy to have been involved. And in fact it wasn’t really a bang at all, it was a moment of singularity.., but the name big bang stuck.

Stroboscopic light machines can light up your brain like a Christmas tree. And this can be a very unique form of entertainment. But it goes beyond that to a type of stroboscopic light therapy. And this is the exciting world of audio visual brainwave entrainment.

Using light machines, the key to brainwave entrainment

Why rhythmic light and sound meditation trains your brain

Brainwave entrainment is the use of an external frequency in either sound, light or vibration to elicit an altered state of consciousness. Historically the most powerful way being the use of light. Once that altered state is achieved the idea is to hold you there for a period of time so that your brain can ‘entrain’ to the new state.

Fun fact.., science now shows that our brains communicate via biophotons. IE: Light! Light and coloured light has an interesting history and potential for healing.

The brain is very good at pattern recognition and following consistent patterns. And the brains ability to synchronise like this can be used purposely. This is the basis of audio visual entrainment and brainwave entrainment. And is the reason entrainment and meditation work so well together. Light and sound meditation takes advantage of this effect.

Brainwave, is the term used for the frequency of neurological ‘firing’ between neurons via synapses in the brain. This is measured most commonly in Hertz (Hz) or ‘cycles per second’.

And we tend to have dominant brainwave frequencies in our brains depending on what state we are in.

What happens in the brain during light and sound meditation

Trance, relaxation and meditation brainwave frequencies tend to be predominantly in the region of 4-12 Hz approx. Otherwise known as Theta (4-8Hz) and Alpha (8-12Hz).

Normal awake and active brain frequencies tend to be predominantly in the 12-32Hz range (Beta). With higher periods of activity above 32Hz known as Gamma present during almost all states, including spikes during sleep and memory formation.

Interestingly., the moment most people close their eyes they begin to almost instantly settle in the 10-12Hz Alpha range. And this is because the brain knows that closed eyes usually means rest and relaxation. Closing your eyes also cuts off one form of information making it easier to think or relax. Light levels of meditation tend to stay in this Alpha range. Deep trance meditation drops lower into Theta and sometimes even Delta (<4Hz) depending on the style of meditation. Achieving these altered levels of brain activity on a consistent and regular basis is the key to effective long term benefit.


How to avoid common meditation mistakes


It’s actually pretty hard to make mistakes when meditating if you understand that a consistent routine is the biggest key to success. But there are some guidelines of what to avoid for quality deep trance meditation. And most of the risk of these mistakes disappears with the use of light and sound meditation and brainwave entrainment.

  • Stop trying to meditate: ‘Trying’ to meditate is what stops most people from getting results. That doesn’t mean that you don’t make an effort. It means that you allow whatever happens to be part of the process of letting go. You will think thoughts. And with practice those thoughts will have less impact and will move on without much attention to them. Sometimes the easiest way to reduce mental activity is to purposely focus on something regular. And certain practices like breathwork or affirmations (mantra’s) can be of huge benefit with this.
  • Meditation isn’t just something you do once a day: The whole point of light and sound meditation is for the calm relaxed states of mind to find their way into your everyday life. And not just to have an escape once a day. This is the basis of mindfulness and the observation of reality. And mindfulness simply put, is awareness without judgement. Be mindful in how you move about your daily activities. With the addition of awareness, many things become part of your meditation routine. And this includes activities like exercise, music, and reading a book.
  • There’s nothing to achieve: Sometimes when you meditate you get feelings of floating, transcendence, or out of body type experiences. And roXiva light and sound meditation journeys can often facilitate this for you. But this isn’t the goal of meditation in general. Trying to have a specific experience may stop you having something even better. Letting go is its own intention. And when the body and mind let go, that which needs to happen for your continued development as a person will find its way into your awareness. Meditation isn’t an intellectual journey that requires understanding. Progress happens through experience.

Why does meditation sometimes not work


If you’ve ever asked or thought that question, then you’re in the right place. Quieting a chattering mind can be challenging to say the least. And not being able to do so often leads to giving up. How do you let go of thoughts anyway? If you’re anything like me, thinking is a constant companion. One of the most powerful results of deep trance meditation using light and sound, is the ease with which it helps you disassociate from the outside world. Most meditation techniques require you to focus on something or ignore your thoughts before you get to that ‘sweet spot’ of brain activity. With deep trance light and sound meditation from roXiva, the brain activity is taken care of for you. You get to short cut years of practice and enjoy the benefits now. Meditation doesn’t need to take much effort. How you get there is irrelevant. Because the benefits to physical health, longevity and mental health are the real goal.

Why light and sound meditation is the faster way to results

So what does a light machine do with stroboscopic LED lights and music so easily., that normal meditation takes so long to master? Depending on the goal of the session selected., it will start at the normal alert frequency and slowly lower itself down (or up) to the desired frequency. The brain ‘entrains’ or matches and follows the flickering light and pulsing sound to a deeply relaxed brainwave state. And it does so typically in minutes rather than hours.

Trying to quiet the mind of thought is sometimes not easy to do. Technology like roXiva will take care of the frequencies itself while you lie or sit comfortably. Light and sound used this way gets you into states of meditation where you simply forget to think. And before you even realise it, you are in a state of suspended bliss and relaxation.

You get to choose.., and you are in constant control of the intensity and duration of your meditative or psychedelic style experience.

How to use light and sound meditation to speed up the benefits of relaxation

With 10 or 20 years of practice, you too will be a master of your mind” says the yogi.

I don’t know about you, but I want all the benefits now if I can.

And the beauty of using something like roXiva on a regular basis is the ease of which you can get to these beneficial relaxation states. And the more you train your brain to go into these altered states of consciousness, the easier it becomes to go there again. With light and sound brainwave entrainment, meditation and mindfulness become easier even without continuing to use it to help you. So it’s a win win. Meditation entrainment will take you where you want to go while at the same time training you to not need it. Pretty cool huh!? And the results are as easy as choosing your favourite session and hitting play.

How to improve light and sound meditation experiences


Understanding what energies are involved when you meditate allows you to improve your practice. And deep trance meditation states have some common methods that work. It’s no surprise that light and sound are two of the most powerful energies available to us for spiritual meditation practice. Both as an internal guide., and as an external tool for deepening our practice. And the result of light (visual) and sound (auditory) used together often creates more than the sum of the parts.

There is a third part to the equation also. And that is feeling or kinaesthetic experience. Any experience that has significant feeling added to it will be magnified in its effectiveness. Light, sound, and emotion (feeling) together make up the three main senses that govern how we experience life. The other two being taste (gustatory) and smell (olfactory). The most common feelings associated with meditation are of course love and gratitude. Deep trance meditation with light and sound uses frequencies that help elevate mood and reduce anxiety. With audio visual entrainment and brainwave entrainment meditation, you get to flavour the experience however you choose.

Can you multiply your meditation practice by combining techniques

I recommend you also take charge of your deep trance meditation by doing something else at the same time. Like a slow purposeful breathing pattern such as the 5sec in 5sec out coherence breath pattern. Brainwave entrainment and breathwork go really well together. As does hypnotherapy brainwave entrainment. Many of our users combine the technology with other practices also. And many also use it professionally to create a lifestyle business. The result of which is a unique selling point to set them aside from the competition.

You can then use this same secondary practice at any time (even for just 2 minutes) without the external aid. This way you transfer the skill of relaxing with light and sound into your everyday life. And you can practice getting into a relaxed state at will. This works by a process of conditioning or ‘anchoring‘ a specific state to a specific practice. The relaxation and dissociation created by the entrainment becomes linked to a repeatable practice. And the result is more than the sum of the two parts.

It’s like anything in life. If you combine strategies and create a routine that you stick to, then your results will magnify over time.

Can you enhance meditation with brainwave entrainment


What if you already meditate? Will meditation with brainwave entrainment work for you?

As a meditator you will know that practice brings deeper and more profound results. And as a meditator you will also know, that there is power in letting go and being guided. Deep trance meditation with light and sound is like having your own personal meditation partner ready at any time. And brainwave entrainment from roXiva is not limited to meditation. There are sessions for many other uses including specific ones for specific purposes.

“When I arrived for my session I had intense pain in my abdomen. 5 minutes in to the session and it disappeared. And that wasn’t even my goal. I’m amazed” [roXiva crystal LSD session]

If you have an existing meditation practice and you add entrainment technology to it, the results will surprise you. The same applies to guided hypnotherapy recordings. The only way to describe the experience accurately is to not describe it at all. You really have to experience it first-hand.

Inner journeys of consciousness exploration and spiritual connections are very common with people using roXiva. More common still, is the effect it has on handling stress, anxiety and the quality of your sleep. And any improvement in those area’s will radically change the quality of your life for the better.

Are meditation and trance the same

Trance and meditation are closely related. At least experientially. The intension may be different but the feelings of detachment from the outside world and indeed the brain activity is very similar. Trance encompasses the practice of hypnotherapy of course. And sometimes has specific deepening techniques that set it apart. Hypnotherapy mostly has a purposeful intention. And that makes it differ from meditation a little more.

Creating a blend of trance and meditation with brainwave entrainment can be mind expanding in ways that have to be experienced.

Users get spontaneous emotional releases, spiritual enlightnement type ‘messages’ and experiences, and relief from pain. Also common are aha moments of insight (eureka), increased creativity and feelings of restoration.

How to have conscious exploration at your fingertips

You get to control how deep you go and for how long depending on the type of session you choose.

The experience of trance and meditation induced by light and sound is unique and powerful. And of course the holistic use of light has been associated with health and spiritual practices for as long as history has been recorded. Ancient ancestral people also used psychedelics and cultural rituals involving rhythm. Two more effects that are also replicated in purpose made roXiva psychedelic light sessions.

Most of all, this type of technology allows users to escape the world for a while. Coming back with different feelings and thought patterns. Valuable skills to have in a rapidly changing sometimes uncertain world. Brainwave entrainment meditation takes a well established practice and supercharges it. The only thing better than choosing to meditate more, is finding a reliable way to do so consistently. And here you are.
