What Are Binaural Beats?
Binaural means "two ears". A binaural beat is created by simultaneously playing two slightly different tones in each ear, which causes the brain to create the illusion of a third tone. This third tone is what the brain then resonates with, following the frequency and shifting the brainwaves to that same rate. In order to entrain our brain, or adjust the internal rhythm, it is important to listen through headphones, so there's no cross-channel bleed across both ears and the mind.
For example: If a 198 Hertz (Hz) sound frequency is sent to the left ear, and a 205 Hz to the right ear, the brain will process the difference of those two frequencies and perceive a new frequency at 7 Hz. The brain will then resonate with the new frequency, producing brainwaves at the same rate (7 Hz).
Meditation Made Easy
Meditation is an extraordinarily effective way to naturally improve your well being. Beautiful, but not easy. With all that goes on in our modern lives, it is challenging to practice meditation every day. When we can carve out the time and space for ourselves, it can sometimes feel impossible to actually concentrate and allow our minds to detach from the physical world. This is where binaural beats come to the rescue. Using the binaural beats with music, intentional frequencies, and guided meditations, we are able to drop into a deep meditative state more easily. With regular binaural beats mediation practice, the brain becomes entrained to access those deep states quickly and efficiently, allowing your body and mind to relax, release stress, and target key areas of health and personal development.
Below is an image that shows the five different brainwave states and the general associated benefits from each. The effects and benefits can vary base on the individual.
It is important to listen to these soundtracks with headphones to get the optimal effect of the binaural beats.
