Having perused the internet for videos that assist with meditation
a common thread in my searches was the tagline-“with binaural
beats and isochronic tones.” I have to admit; the images that were
attached to these videos were a bit intimidating. As I was already
vulnerable I was doing my best to remain as grounded as possible.
Fearful of the unknown I stuck to the meditations I knew and
loved-the ones with ethereal music; dream locations that were
lovingly described by a calming voice-the ones you see daily on
this blog in fact.
The theory behind binaural beats is neither religious or terrifying.
They must be experienced with headphones and each ear experiences
a different frequency of auditory sound-the middle section of
your brain then creates a beat (a phantom beat) to make up for
the difference in frequency from ear to ear.
Binaural beats are experienced by people for many reasons:
to assist with-insomnia; improve focus for study etc.; to
induce healing and stabilize mood. There are a plethera
of scientific terms and theories to explain these funky
beats with a purpose-I have shared some videos that explain
how they work and what they are-I have also placed some
reading suggestions if you would like to learn more.
I lost my binaural beat virginity last night and slept soundly and
with a sense of calm and ease. I fell asleep much faster
than I usually do and my body lost its restless features.
and until my flipsy, flopsy ten year old daughter came
into our bed-rolled around in the blankets and …
Becoming educated erased my fear that these beats
would somehow send me into an uncontrollable state
in an uncontrollable alternate reality. Instead I have
added them to my ever increasing alternative healing
Today’s focus is based on how binaural beats and isochronic tones
work and how to add them to our healing repetoire.
