Have you ever wondered why you feel relaxed listening to certain types of music? Music itself can sometimes have a very calming effect. One type of music, binaural beats, can indeed affect you in such a way that you think and feel physically different.
It’s been discovered that some brain waves are ideal for relaxation, learning and information retention. These brain waves, binaural beats, are unique sounds that adjust the frequency of the listener’s brain. This technique, called brain entrainment, is said to be able to change the listener’s mental and physical state.
Before the advent of portable music in the form of tapes, CDs, and MP3s, the only way to change your brainwave pattern was through deep meditation. This type of meditation was only thought possible by those practicing meditation for decades. Now, anyone can enter the meditative state just by listening to binaural beats for only a few minutes.
The beauty of binaural beats is that it mimics the effects of mediation on the brain and therefore its benefits as well. The primary benefits of meditation are deep relaxation, more restful and energizing sleep, relief from stress and even physical energy and improved focus and concentration, among many others.
