This is the second in the series on binaural beats – audio programs that change brain states.
Using them we can switch off worries, create deep trance, or trigger endorphin release.
Binaural beat programs work by entraining the brain to slow down brain wave frequencies. The Beta wave, associated with agitation and over-thinking. The next slowest wave is Alpha, the state associated with relaxation and productive thought. Beyond that we have the Theta state, which occurs in deep sleep or profound meditation.
Theta waves were first studied in the 1970s and it was noticed that using equipment to produce Theta wave states produced serenity, reduced the need for sleep, cut out anxiety, boosted the immune system, enhanced creativity, and helped integrate the emotions. In addition, it is impossible to worry or get anxious so long as the Theta state is in operation.
Interestingly, Japanese research, which studied brain scans of Zen monks – showed that experienced meditators can switch down to the Theta wave in minutes.
Now binaural programs are able to create the same benefits without the need to spend years practicing meditation.
I have been testing some of these programs and recommend the one below.
