I’ve been meditating for a few years now but I have a real hard time quieting my brain. I’ll try to focus on a sound or an object but my mind will wander to what I did that morning or what I have to do later. Once I realize that there’s something I have to do then I can’t get back into a meditative state.
Another thing that happens to me, although less often, is I’ll actually be doing a good job focusing but I fall asleep within a few minutes of getting there. Then I wake up feeling like I had a nap but not feeling like I meditated on something.
My reasoning for meditation is usually to find an answer that I’m looking for and I always do find an answer but it relates to later in the day chores I have to do. That’s very frustrating when you are looking for an answer to something pertaining to your life that deeply affects you.
I found the best meditation I had ever had was a guided one by a friend of mine.
He instructed my group of friends to relax, then relax some more. I found myself focusing on his words and being able to also focus on the imagery he was giving to us. My mind didn’t have a chance to take over with its rambling thoughts because he would move on to the next instruction before my mind could do that. By the time he got to our reason for doing the meditation I was completely relaxed and focused on what I was meditating for. The answer to my question was as clear as day in my mind and I was extremely excited about the whole experience.
I went home and did the meditation again as we had just done it but this time my mind wandered with no one to guide it. I realized that I needed some sort of guide to help me until I could focus myself.
I found Binaural Beats.
Our 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 po werful b rain frequencies are less than 20 Hz. Hertz, or Hz for short, are a unit of frequency.
Our hearing doesn’t respond to frequencies below 20 Hz. This is where binaural beat technology comes in. It uses the inner wiring of the brain to create the desired frequency with perfect accuracy.
Basically in your right ear will be a frequency of 308 Hz and in your left ear will be a frequency of 300 Hz so your brain is drawn towards the beat frequency of 8 Hz which is the difference between the two.
Among many things that you can use this for, one is meditation.
I find that within seconds of putting the earphones in and laying down I am in a meditative state. I come out of it feeling refreshed and satisfied.
It’s so nice to know that I’m taking that time out of the day to focus on my meditation at that very moment and not thinking about the past or future.
I’ve had excellent results finding answers to my questions now and I’m actually really glad that I have these binaural beats to turn to because my friend is not available to me any time I want like my binaural beats are.
If you want to obtain a calmer and more focused meditation and you think that guided meditation might be for you then check out binaural beats.
I found my meditation binaural from http://binauralbeats-store.com. It also has many other things besides meditation that may help you.
