The first time I ever listened to binaural Brain Beats, I swore I would never listen to them again. What they did to my mind, was some “next level shit,” and they scared the hell out of me. Since then, some time has passed, some growth has taken place, and now I find them to be rather resourceful.
They are scientifically proven set audio sounds intended to entrain our brainwaves to reach the most powerful frequencies of the mind. They are able to influence the way that our brain resonates.
The human ear is not capable of hearing frequencies below 20Hz, however, this is where the most powerful brain frequencies live.
Binaural beats are achieved when two slightly different tones with a specific frequency are played at precisely the same time, in each ear. The ‘difference’ between these two tones creates a third ‘binaural tone’ which is perceived only by the mind. This perceived tone is what our brain resonates to.
For example, lets say you play 210Hz in your left ear and 209Hz in your right ear, after a few minutes, your brain will combine the two frequencies into a middle frequency of 9Hz. (9Hz has been proven to improve memory retention).
Synchronized brain waves have been associated with meditative and hypnotic states, and audio with embedded binaural beats has the ability to induce and improve such states of consciousness.
You can listen to binaural beats on YouTube, though some of the YouTube videos have the word “warning” in capital letters, so proceed with caution, but enjoy the ride! (It was one of these videos that really took my mind for a spin)
You can also download binaural beats apps to your phone and try different ones out. I have used Giorgio Regni’s binaural beats therapy app and found it to be pretty effective. He has some really cool choices to pick from and each one explains its intended use and how long it lasts for.
