Have you heard of Binaural beats? It is a kind of sound which can be used to stimulate mind in a certain state.
What are binaural beats?
Binaural beats are a technique of combining two slightly different sound frequencies to create the perception of a single new frequency tone.
The theory is that when exposed to two different frequencies at the same time, one in each ear, the brain actually perceives a single tone that is the difference between the two separate frequencies. Your brain, in a sense, “tunes” to this new frequency.
You listen to binaural beats using headphones. In each ear, you receive sound at a slightly different frequency (often accompanied by some relaxing background sounds). If your left ear receives a 300-hertz tone and your right ear receives a 280-hertz tone, your brain will process and absorb a 10-hertz tone. That’s a very low-frequency soundwave—one you can’t actually hear. But you don’t need to hear the sound for your brain to be affected by it.
Why is exposure to these soundwaves helpful to sleep and relaxation? Science shows that exposure to binaural beats can create changes in the brain’s degree of arousal. Listening to these sounds that create a low-frequency tone, research indicates, triggers a slow-down to brainwave activity—and that may help you relax, lower your anxiety, and make it easier for you to fall asleep and sleep more soundly.
For what they are used??
There are a lot of such beats on the internet for different things such as for sleep, relaxation, study etc.
Do they really work?
There are both type of thoughts on if these binaural beats work or not. It simply depends on our belief. If we believe that this will work, then it does work and the reason behind this is scientific as explained above.
As per my experience, I have tried various binaural beats and these worked for me.
You can try some:
What to take care of?
When you use such beats, use only from trusted source. There are a lot of stuff on internet for unusual reasons.. like changing face shape etc.. You should only use these for good reasons, in case you want some relaxation or you want to overcome your fear.
Let me know in comments if you have ever used these or how you felt after trying?
My purpose of this post was to only make people aware about the binaural beats if this can help them in any way. I am not promoting anything. Whether these work or not, is upon you to decide.
