What Are Binaural Beats?

A Binaural Beat is an illusion created by the brain when you listen to two tones with slightly different frequencies at the same time. Your brain interprets the two tones as a beat of its own. The two tones align with your brain waves to produce a beat with a different new frequency. 

To give an example, you must be listening to Binaural Beats with headphones on or good surround sound to produce the effect. i.e. One ear is listening to 432 Hz while the other ear is listening to 444 Hz, your brain interprets the difference by cancelling out, listening to now a 12 Hz wave frequency. (444-432)
This is called the Frequency-Following Effect, meaning you can use Binaural Beats to train your mind to reach certain states of consciousness.

When you listen to certain binaural beats, they can increase the strength of certain brain waves. This can increase or hold back different brain functions that control thinking and feeling, allowing you to feel your most authentic true self.

The brain’s response to binaural beats can increase communication between its left and right hemispheres, thus aiding the benefits of well-being and a sense of calm. The brain generates electric pulses that fluctuate in rhythmical patterns. These patterns correlate our thoughts, emotions and state of being. If you play two different tones into each ear, the brain will attempt to find a balance. 

Each frequency holds a specific pattern, and when we immerse ourselves in these specific geometric vibrations, we create those balancing patterns within.
Each pattern then unlocks various states of mind, healthy states of function, initiates healing, and DNA activations, depending on the frequency. These frequencies are broken down into brain wave states; delta, theta, alpha, beta, and gamma. (Learn more below)

Even our internal organs and chakra systems run at a specific frequency. For example, a healthy balanced liver vibrates at 55-60 Hz, where the heart vibrates at 67-70 Hz. Depending on the vibration, it may be functioning in a healthy state, or an out of balanced, dis-ease, state. Its all about the frequency!

Balanced and healthy energy states is what we can achieve when listening to these healing frequencies. We reset or recalibrate our bodies back into their natural states of functioning.

The brain waves can be observed with an EEG (or an “electroencephalograph”) – a tool that allows researchers to note brain wave patterns. Each brain wave has a purpose and helps serve us in optimal mental functioning.

Different Frequencies Link to Examples Below:

Delta pattern: 0.1–4 Hz are found most often in infants as well as young children. As we age, we tend to produce less delta even during deep sleep, stage 3. They are associated with the deepest levels of relaxation and restorative, healing sleep. They have also been found to be involved in unconscious bodily functions such as regulating heartbeat and digestion. If there is abnormal delta activity, an individual may experience learning disabilities or have difficulties maintaining conscious awareness (such as in cases of brain injuries).

Theta pattern: 4–8 Hz correlates with improved meditation, daydreaming and restorative stage 2 sleep. It is seen to reduce anxiety, boosting creativity, increased memory recall, and connects us to experiencing feeling our deep raw emotions. Theta has its benefits of helping improve our intuition and makes us feel more connected to the Unified Field, or natural state.

Alpha pattern: 7–13 Hz frequency range bridges the gap between our conscious thinking and subconscious mind. It helps us calm down when necessary and promotes feelings of deep relaxation. If we become stressed, a phenomenon called “alpha blocking” may occur which involves excessive beta activity and very little alpha. The alpha is seen in drowsiness, awake and relaxed states, stage 1 sleep, and often seen throughout the day when a little bit of muscle is present and in a balanced flow state. 

Beta pattern: 14–30 Hz is linked to awake states and are involved in conscious thought, logical thinking, and tend to have a stimulating affect. Beta waves allows us to focus and complete school or work-based tasks easily. Having too much beta may lead to us experiencing excessive stress and/or anxiety. The higher beta frequencies are associated with high levels of arousal. You can stimulate artificial beta activity by drinking caffeine, on some medications or have another stimulant. These are very fast brain waves that most people exhibit throughout the day in order to complete conscious tasks such as: critical thinking, writing, reading, and socialization.

Gamma pattern: 30–100 Hz are involved in higher processing tasks as well as cognitive functioning. Gamma waves are important for learning, memory and information processing. It is thought that the 40 Hz gamma wave linked to overall cellular healing, is important for the binding of our senses in regard to perception and learning new material. It has been found that individuals who are mentally challenged and have learning disabilities tend to have lower gamma activity than average. Gamma waves are also associated with high level states of deep meditaion.

Additional Benefits of Binaural Beats include:

-Increased Creativity & Cognitive Enhancement
-Reduced Anxiety & Improved Mood
-Helping Enter A Meditative State
-Improved Sleeping Habits
-Helping Improve Focus, Attention, & Memory Retention

Remember, Different Frequencies React and Activate Various States Within the Body.

When you become aware of the impact the frequencies play on your health and happiness, you can begin to use Binaural Beats as a tool to keep in balance and alignment.

Listen to Binaural Beats, and begin to recalibrate your life to vibrate in harmony!
