Shamanic consciousness is one of the terms that's often used to refer to the state of mind into which shamans enter when they journey into the spirit world. It typically involves going into a deep trance, in which the shaman might communicate with the spirits of the dead, or take on characteristics of their totem animals. Such journeys often provide the shaman with a source of higher wisdom and insight.
Traditionally, shamans used various methods to transform their state of consciousness, many of which would be considered dangerous or undesirable by most people today. Examples include starvation, use of hallucinogenic drugs, sleep deprivation and hazardous solitary journeys into the wilderness.
Fortunately these methods are not the only ways to achieve shaman consciousness. Thanks to modern technology, you can now access a similar state of mind in the comfort of your own home, by using brainwave entrainment (also known as brainwave synchronization).
Accessing The Shamanic State Of Mind With Brainwave Entrainment
When listening to brainwave entrainment recording, your brain is exposed to repeating sound pulses of specific frequencies. The brain has a natural tendency to match its brainwaves to the frequency of the sounds it's hearing; this is known as the 'frequency following response'.
Whichever type of brainwave entrainment method you decide on, it's very important to use a high quality recording that's specially designed for achieving shamanic consciousness. I recommend the 'Shaman Consciousness' recordings from The Unexplainable Store. This is a very popular site with a reputation for producing high-quality products.
