Wouldn’t it be great to lead an amazingly productive lifestyle and make better use of your time each and every day? I firmly believe everyone should have to ability to take control of their mind and use it to achieve unbelievable feats. The mind is a very powerful thing, and if you aren’t effectively using it to improve your life, then you aren’t reaching your full potential. If you aren’t aware of what I’m talking about, it’s ok, don’t fret. It will all make sense to you in just a few minutes.
By this point you are probably very curious as to what I am talking about. So I will let you in on the secret. You may have heard or it, or maybe you haven’t, but I can guarantee you one thing; you will learn something new. Allow me to elaborate. Chances are if you have been browsing around the lucid dream community for some time, then you have probably run across terms such as Binaural Beats, Isochronic Tones, Monaural Beats, and Harmonic Box X. Maybe you’ve seen a few of these terms, or perhaps you haven’t even seen a single one.
Now you may be wondering to yourself, what are these Binaural Beats and Isochronic tones, and what exactly do they do? To answer your question, the possibilities are limitless. Binaural Beats are used for a wide range of various purposes in life. Lets look at an example:
As you can see Binaural Beats can work wonders in life, but you aren’t limited to just mood lifting binaural beats. There are thousands of different effects that can be achieved with Binaural Beats or Isochronic Tones. Another example of these Binaurals in action would be to look at our other friend, Tommy.
Tommy has a very hard time sleeping at night. Every night he is constantly tossing and turning, and once he does drift off into sleep, he is back awake 2 hours later and the cycle starts all over again. Tommy is very hesitant about going to the doctor about his problem, because he knows they will have him take various pills to put him to sleep. The catch is, is that these pills also have nasty side effects, and Tommy doesn’t want this. So he looks online for a solution, when he comes across a Binaural Beat claiming to help him out. He tries it, and it produces the desired effect. Tommy is out like a light, and stays asleep all night!
And don’t be fooled into thinking that Binaurals are just for people that have issues. There are also Binaural Beats or Isochronic tones for pure enjoyment. Some of the ones I have seen floating around can produce feelings of calmness, Caffeine Buzzes, and even Zero Gravity Simulation. I have even seen (and tested) Binaural Beats that can aid in producing Lucid Dreams.
This all sounds really good! But how do they actually work?
So now that you know why you should be using Binaural Beats, and how they can actually improve your life, I’ll give you a quick summary of how they actually work. When you are listening to a Binaural Beat, Two Different frequencies of tones are playing in each ear. These tones are very close frequencies, but still different. The way you brain interprets this, is to take the difference of the two frequencies and merge them into one.
After listening to a certain frequency for a certain amount of time (approximately 7 minutes), that area in your brain associated with that frequency becomes active. Different frequencies will produce different effects and feelings.
Some Binaurals will slowly increase the frequency over a slow period of time producing different feeling and effects throughout the duration of the beat. High quality Binaural Beats will also have background music in the background, similar to the desired effect to help relax you and provide a better experience.
Wow! That was a lot of information. Where do I start next?
So after reading all of this, I’m not going to lie, it’s probably a lot of information to decipher, especially if it’s all new to you. So to help you save some time, I’m going to recommend to you one of my favorite sites for getting High Quality Binaural Beats (Disclaimer: By using this link to make a purchase, I may get a commission).
