Do you know that you can experience a number of altered states with just your headphones?
You may not have heard of binaural beats, but they have been around for a long time. Recently, with the technology that we have today, we are able to purchase or even create ourselves, CD’s with binaural beats on them that generate different brainwave frequencies. These frequencies sync the right and left hemispheres of the brain to a frequency selected between less that one beat per second up to thirty beats per second and beyond.
Some of the uses for brain hemispheric syncing are stress relief, rapid learning, restful sleep, and more creativity to name a few. Some of the frequencies used will almost immediately cause the person to experience the alpha, theta or the delta state range of frequencies. The alpha state is a state of deep relaxation that most everyone has heard of. The theta state is usually linked with higher creativity and learning. The delta state is a level of deep non-rem sleep. There are almost an infinite number of frequencies available for the researcher to use.
Would you like to experience lucid dreaming where you know you are dreaming and direct the dream to any experience desired? Would you like to have an out of body experience? Would you like help in learning a new language or other difficult subjects? Would you like to experience deep meditation? These and any other experience that can be controlled by the brain are possible.
There is even ongoing research that suggests that certain frequencies can repair damaged DNA and cause the body to heal itself. This is cutting edge research. Someday we may be able to put on a set of stereo headphones and rid ourselves of just about any ailment.
There has been a lot of research in this area of alternative healing methods. In the area of healthcare the future looks much brighter because of the researchers that are devoting their time and energy to this study.
Here is a list of some of the benefits of using brainwave entrainment with binaural beats:
1. Faster healing time from trauma such as accidents or surgery.
2. Relief from a stressful job or just a bad day.
3. Super creativity.
4. Slowing down of the aging process.
5. More physical and mental energy.
6. Retaining more of what you learn in school or on the job.
7. Better concentration and focus.
8. Better and deeper levels of restful sleep.
There are tons of other benefits we are just learning about by using binaural beats to entrain the brain to an infinite variety of altered states. There are a number of software available to use to experiment with binaural beats or you might want to purchase ready made CD’s or MP3’s that are available online. In either case why not give it a try. There is much to gain.
