Binaural Beats are an audio stimuli that use sub-audible frequencies to synchronize the left and right hemispheres of the brain to a desired brainwave pattern and effect.
Headphones are necessary when listening to binaural beats to gain the full benefit. Binaural beats work by playing two separate audible frequencies into each ear. The difference of those frequencies is the binaural beat frequency.
As an example, to replicate a sub-audible 4Hz Delta frequency you could play 100Hz. in the right ear and 104Hz. in the left ear. The difference in frequencies creates a “wub” or “beat” sound that occurs in the listeners brain. This works similar to a tuning fork to help entrain the brain to the desired frequency pattern.
You Get Different Binaural Beats – Alpha, Beta, Theta, Delta
- Alpha at 10 hz
- Beta at 14 hz
- Theta at 5.5hz
- Delta at 2 hz
The binaural beats are superficially created to stir up a desired response, at a frequency that our ears would not be able to pick up. The brain creates the binaural beat from the tones that are provided, based on different sound hertz that is detected by your left and right ear, allowing the brain to turn the difference in hertz into a beat. This beat can have a relaxing effect on the brain, or promote alertness, depending on the actual difference.
Binaural beats were first discovered in 1839 by an Associate Professor, at the University of Berlin, who accidentally discovered that two similar sounds that are slightly different in frequency cause a pulsation or beat type effect within the brain when given separately to each of our ears. However, it was Dr Gerald Oster who found out in 1973 the benefits of the binaural beat on the mind and body.
Binaural beats gives us the ability to enter instant deep states of meditation, and can also reprogram the subconscious mind. Binaural beat recordings at specific frequencies make use of an assortment of audios to alter the listener’s brain activity. By bringing you into this state of meditation, binaural beats can bring about positive changes in your emotional, mental and physical make-up. The beats are also able to restructure your neural network and raise your “comfort level”, reducing stress levels.
This meditation is a hypnologic trance, which is a deep meditative state, and usually most probably requires a lifetime to master. The changes in brainwave patterns are translated to changes in chemical reaction within the body. This works hand in hand with positive affirmation to heighten your personal development, heal emotional issues and cure phobias, and result in behavioral changes. They can also bring about energy boosts similar to that received when the body rests.
Other advantages of binaural technology include being able to access to your subconscious mind. Binaural technology gives one the ability to create deep states of meditation, erase stress, improve your intelligence and create behavioral changes. All this can be done with just minimal effort, other than putting on the earphones and listening.
It can erase negative thoughts in your subconscious, take away negative emotions even from your memories, without affecting them.
With the numerous uses of binaural technology, it is not hard to figure out whether it would be able to suit your needs, be it in personal improvement or as a stress buster. The possibilities are limitless.
