Benefits of Binaural Beats
As life’s pressures increase, financially, personally and socially, our ability to relax is reduced, and as such we turn to various aids to help us achieve that mental calm humans require as part of a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Sometimes we find sanctuary in Starbucks and a book, and other times more holistic activities such as massage therapy, yoga, and music.
Binaural beats are capable of cultivating relaxation even during times of high stress, and as such have been labeled the digital drug with remarkable relaxation and meditation powers. The beats are effective in freeing the mind and creating that realm of calm space we all need, daily.
The popularity of binaural beat downloads has soared in the last few years as more scientific studies emerge documenting the benefits, and as the medical profession increasingly turns to use theta therapy to cure behavioral and cognitive disorders.
Binaural beats can be listened to anywhere, anytime, but are most effective when listened to in an environment conducive to relaxation, such as lying on the sofa or even performing yoga or tai chi.
By simply putting on a pair of headphones and pressing play, you can drift off to a realm of peace, while at the same time manifesting the following benefits in your everyday life.
1. Increased Relaxation
Binaural beats allow you to tap into relaxation at the touch of a button, which is great if you’re under a heavy schedule with minimal time to yourself. By listening to a theta recording you can go from highly-strung to ultra chilled in just a few minutes.
2. Better Sleep
The knock on effect of being able to relax on demand is better to sleep. By listening to binaural beats on a daily basis the mind is entrained to learn to relax on demand. There are also specific recordings, such as our Perfect Sleep recording, designed to aid deep, restful sleep and prevent an overactive mind at bedtime.
3. Deep Meditation
Our brains are so used to running in high activity frequency zones that centering the mind for meditation is near on impossible. Binaural beats aid meditators in achieving low brainwave frequency while at the same time maintaining a high level of consciousness. No matter the type of meditation you are practicing, binaural beats will help you access the realm of higher awareness faster, and help you stay there for long.
Even when we do get time for ourselves it’s tough to remain undistracted, even if no one else is around. The mind is easily scattered and is usually everywhere but at the moment we want it to be. Binaural beats enable you to truly access the present, to really be in the now and let go of attachment to the past and thoughts of the future.
5. Increased Positivity
Studies have shown that the calming effect binaural beats have on the brain boosts positivity in everyday life. Users consistently report feelings of increased optimism, contentment, and happiness.
6. Increased Concentration
While binaural beats technology is widely known for relaxing the brain, the recordings can also be used to increase focus and concentration. Binaural beats are capable of eliminating stress and pressure from the mind, thus making us more focused and attentive.
7. Body Healing
Obviously, binaural beats can’t directly heal illness, but science has long since proven the intrinsic link between mental health and physical health. By relieving the mind of stress and anxiety the body will naturally become healthier and stronger.
8. Lower Stress
Perhaps the most highly documented benefit of binaural beat technology is stress relief. Binaural beats transport the user to a place of tranquillity, to another world where there is peace from the tension and challenge of everyday life. Over time this calm disposition will manifest itself in the user’s everyday life experience.
9. Eliminate Anxiety
Like stress, binaural beats provide a sanctuary for those suffering anxiety and related symptoms such as panic attacks and irrational thought processes. Listening to binaural beats can help alleviate anxiety around specific life situations.
10. Spiritual Consciousness
Over the last few years, an increasing number of people have begun using binaural beats recordings to open their “third eye” and gain access to spiritual consciousness, higher learning and heightened awareness of self. In addition to varying forms of meditation, Astral Projection and Lucid Dreaming are two commonly sought after higher consciousness states achieved through the use of binaural beats.
