Binaural Beats have not just popped up as the newest fad. Heinrich Wilhelm Dove discovered binaural beats in 1839 but it took 134 years, with the publishing of Gerald Oster's article "Auditory Beats in the Brain" (Scientific American, 1973) that the real research started.
The effects of binaural beats on consciousness were first examined by physicist Thomas Campbell and electrical engineer Dennis Mennerich, who under the direction of Robert Monroe wanted to copy a subjective impression of 4Hz oscillation that they associated with an out-of-body experience. In 1978 Monroe founded The Monroe Institute, now a charitable binaural research and education organization.
So how does it work?
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 brains receiving and operating frequency can be altered by sound waves. Many of the most powerful brain frequencies are less than 20 Hz. Hertz, or Hz for short, are a unit of frequency.
Since the ear itself 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.
Basically in your right ear will be a frequency of 300 Hz and in your left ear will be a frequency of 308 Hz so your brain is drawn towards the beat frequency of 8 Hz which is the difference between the two. A neat example is when you fly in a passenger plane; you may often hear a fluctuating droning sound. That is a beat frequency caused by engine vibrations at two close frequencies.
Different Hz are associated with different things. For example 4-7 Hz, which are classified as Theta waves, are associated with Dreams, Deep Meditation, and REM sleep.
When you are just falling asleep at night you are probably in the 7 - 13 Hz range, classified as Alpha waves, which are associated with Relaxation, and before and after bed drowsiness.
During the day when you are awake, you are most likely in the area of >40 Hz, classified as Gamma waves, which are associated with higher mental activity.
So how does this help you?
The precise different binaural beats have been researched and proven to help you in different areas of your life. For example, if you wanted to use binaural beats for stress relief, there are frequencies that will relax you from head to toe within minutes. Your mind and body will be gently guided to a state of inner harmony with the exact variance of Alpha, Theta, and Delta frequency waves.
You can use these binaural beats to help you with different areas of your life or problems you may be having. You can use them to help you with sleep problems, anxiety, confidence, motivation, manifestation, weight loss and the list goes on and on.
