Binaural Beats With Meditation

What if I tell you that all you can transform your life with…is a pair of quality earphones?

You might think, “Conny, what are you talking about…?!”

It sounds suspicious and funny, right? But to tell you honestly, there’s a lot more to what I’ve mentioned than only losing yourself to great music.

Months ago, I discovered something that helped lessen my anxieties and sleepless nights– all caused by daily stress.

What is the Binaural Beat?

The binaural beat is a type of sound therapy that affects the function of our brain, as well as it is a technique that merges two different frequency tones to create a single frequency tone. A binaural beat is an audio frequency that stimulates our brainwaves.

How do binaural beats work?

People listen to binaural beats using earphones, and you can get an idea of the music in the video below: Check it out

Say in your left ear, you’re listening to a 300-hertz tone. In your right ear, you receive a 280-hertz tone, and your brainwaves slowly fall into a state of harmony and will then be at an imaginary tone of 10hz.

This is the binaural beat.

Instead of hearing two slightly different tones, your brain tricks you into hearing a single tone.

It is an imaginary beat.

Important Tips:

If you want to try the binaural beats as meditation therapy, I suggest you:

  1. Listen at a volume range of medium and low to prevent any kind of damage that can be caused by listening to loud sounds over a period of time.
  2. Choose binaural beats that have fewer outbursts and explosions of sounds.
