Your Brain and Binaural Beats? The Lazy Way to Nirvana?

Brain Candy with Binaural Beats

What the heck is a Binaural Beat you ask?

Binaural Beat technology is the use of different sound frequencies to product different effects to the human consciousness.  Basically, the human brain goes through many frequency cycles during each day. Different frequencies produce different effects to the human consciousness. Using this information, it has been discovered that the receiving and operating frequency of the brain can actually be altered with sound waves. The most powerful brain frequencies are under 20 Hz. Since the ear does not respond to frequencies below 20 Hz, Binaural Beat Technology came about which uses the inner wiring of the brain to produce the frequency with perfect accuracy.

How is this done?

By Broadcasting two separate frequencies in each ear. For example, if you wanted to tune your brain to a 7 Hz frequency, you could play 200 Hz in your right ear, and 207 Hz in your left ear. The brain will compensate for the difference between the two and produce a third tone that will be exactly 7 Hz. This will result in your brain frequency being lowered and tuned to the desired 7 Hz operating stage.

All of this is designed to tune your brain to various brain wave states.

Extensive credible studies have been done with Binaural Beats in attempts to find out what frequencies trigger brain reactions. These studies have produced incredible results that link metaphysical abilities to exact frequencies. Below is a chart that shows the 4 most common brain wave classifications. Each classification can be broken down into frequencies that each affect a different part of the conscious and subconscious mind. Remember, there are many possible variations within each classification, and studies show certain combinations of these frequencies produce different effects.

Frequency range Name Usually associated with:
13 to 40 Hz Beta waves Active, busy or anxious thinking and active concentration
7 to 13 Hz Alpha waves Relaxation (while awake)
4 to 7 Hz Theta waves Dreams, deep meditation, hypnosis
< 4 Hz Delta waves Deep dreamless sleep
