Optimizing your brain with binaural beats and a set of headphones! Is it really possible to create spectacular changes in your body and mind by just listening to binaural beats masked with a thunder storm?
Optimizing your brain with just your set of headphones!
Binaural beats are unique sounds recorded in such a way that they re-adjust the brain wave frequencies of the listener automatically. Through a technological technique that has been named brainwave entrainment, binaural beats can change the mental and physical state of anyone who listens.
Analysis has shown that some brainwaves, like intense relaxation, are ideal for learning and retaining new information while delta brainwave states promote relaxed healthy sleep. Until the adaptation of binaural beats tapes, CDs and MP3s, the only technique to create deliberate changes in your brainwave patterns was with deep meditation. For thousands of years this type of meditation has only been possible for practitioners of meditation with over 20 years experience, such as Zen Buddhist Monks.
However, by using binaural beats it is now possible for every person to enter these kind of meditative states within minutes only by using good headphones and a specifically recorded pre-made binuaral beats recording.
Although the science consisting of brainwave entrainment is a bit complex to research, the basic premise is easy to comprehend. Binaural beats were discovered by Heinrich Wilhelm Dove when he was an Associate Professor at the University in Berlin. Prof Dove discovered that when 2 similar sounds, that differ only slightly in frequency, are presented separately to the left and right ear (Binaural) they will cause a pulsation or beat type effect to occur in the brain.
Brain Waves (brainwaves) Entrainment
It was in the late ’70s when Scientific America published the research paper by Dr. Gerald Oster called “Auditory Beats in the Brain”. This paper showed how Dr. Oster took Prof. Dove’s discovery and through research found that by utilizing these binaural beats he could direct the brain processes of the listener to match the internal beat created by the binaural beats. When this occurred the brainwaves of the listener began to resonate with the same frequency as the binaural beats. Thus Oster found that through this technology he was able to change the brainwave frequencies of the listener and bring about deliberate mental states.
To the normal person this would just be another scientific discovery that has nothing to do with real life and our everyday routines were it not for the fact that everything you do in life has a corresponding brainwave pattern. Most times the effects you wish to create are affected by or correspond to the state your brainwaves are in at that moment. Every action you take has a dominant frequency associated with each and every one.
When you are in a state of deep relaxation or asleep your brain has a specific frequency associated with specific patterns such as Theta waves. When you are in an awake state, alert and intensely concentrating your brain is engaged in Beta or even Gamma frequency patterns. When you enter a state of focused relaxation like enjoying TV, imagining or while under the influence of hypnosis, you are in the Alpha state.
Binaural Beats: A Meditation Shortcut
This is also the state experienced with most forms of meditation. However, only men and women with 20 years of meditative experience, like Zen Buddhist Monks, can enter Theta and Delta states while staying aware. These states, would normally take an entire life to achieve by practicing meditation, but can now be prompted within minutes using binaural beats.
“This all sounds great”, you may say but how does it affect me? It is possible to induce meditative states at will using binaural beats? Is this relevant to you and me? In order to answer that question it is best to look at the benefits of meditation. Some of the benefits of meditation include:
1. Deep relaxation.
2. More profound more restful and energizing sleep.
3. Higher levels of creativity.
4. A slower aging rate.
5. Releasing of past negative emotional turmoil.
6. Relief from Stress.
7. Heightened physical energy.
8. Heightened focus and concentration.
9. Better retention of learned information.
10. Faster recovery times after surgery.
This list is a small sample of the benefits of meditation and it’s certainly not extensive.
It is evident then that the benefits of having a technology that can induce desired brain states that correspond to positive changes in mind and body is very beneficial. We are very blessed to live in a time where we have access to different forms of this technology from Fit In Wholebody and Brainwave Entrainment, designed for major self improvement, to individual Binaural Beats recordings designed to create specific states in mind and body.
The experiments conducted into binaural beats and its effects shows that this technology produces results and can be used very successfully by any person. For more information, you can read over our programs to find if it’s what may work best for you, because using this process can rewrite your beliefs and radically change the character of your life.
