Binaural beats help you enter a meditative state quickly and easily, allowing you to use meditation as a tool for personal growth, relaxation, and spiritual practices.
How do binaural beats work?
Binaural beats are a psychoacoustic phenomenon that arises in the brain when the right and left ears are exposed to different tones with a constant amplitude. These tones have slightly different frequencies and create a third frequency that we perceive in the center of our brain. This generates a pleasant, gentle, and very comforting sensation.
The method is based on groundbreaking research conducted by the German physicist Heinrich Wilhelm Dove. Dove discovered that the effect of binaural tones on our brainwaves can put us into a state of deep relaxation. Some find the effect so pleasant that they fall asleep. Others experience lucid images because of the close correlation with the distinctive brainwave pattern that emerges in REM sleep. As EEG recordings have demonstrated, the same pattern arises in states of deep relaxation and hypnosis.
With this premium audio book, you'll experience six binaural soundscapes of various lengths, and with overlapping effects on the frequency bands in the brain:
• Delta, 0.5-3 Hz
• Theta, 4-7 Hz
• and Alpha, 8-13 Hz.
These frequency bands are associated with relaxation and contemplation. Research has shown that binaural soundscapes can be very helpful for unwinding, meditating, and drifting off to sleep.
Simply listen to the tracks and find the ones that work best for you. You will generally know within a few seconds which of the six soundscapes has the best effect on your well-being at any given moment.
Please note: Laptop loudspeakers are generally too small to capture the excellent sound spectrum in this premium audiobook. For maximum impact, we strongly recommend that you use good headphones. This will enable you to fully enjoy the intended effect of these gentle soundscapes.
