Meditation and the Power of Binaural Beats.Even if you have never heard of binaural beats I am sure you know at least a little about meditation.The act of performing meditation dates back millennia. The use of binaural beats is very recent. Meditation is an art form that has been widely practised by eastern traditions over the centuries and only relatively recently gained popularity in western societies.Meditation is believed to be a way of accessing our own inner minds to develop a connection with a Higher Power by many religions and spiritual teachers. But, it is not only used for religious or spiritual purposes.There are many other benefits to meditation besides the spiritual aspects. Bodily healing has been reported due to meditative practises and meditation is a great way to uncover and remove negative thought patterns, beliefs and memories with strong negative emotional connotations. Meditation is also a powerful way to deal with stress Because meditation can be used as a way of stilling the mind it has become extremely popular as a self improvement tool. Its ability to reduce stress has had a profound effect on many thousands of people and helped them to overcome illnesses, recovery faster after surgery and deal with deep-seated psychological issues.Although there are many different forms of meditation that all aim to produce the same results. The only drawback to meditation is the time it takes to learn how to do it effectively.Scientific investigations into meditation uncovered the fact that experienced meditators enter very specific mental states while meditating. These mental states have corresponding brainwaves associated with them and it discovered that these same states could be produced using binaural beats.Binaural beats can now be purchased that will allow anyone to experience extremely deep states of meditation with minutes merely by listening to them through stereo headphones.Binaural beats enter the scientific consciousness in 1839 when they were first discovered by Wilhelm D ove and then again in 1973 when Gerald Oster wrote an article in Scientific American about their affects on the brain and ability to create specific brainwaves.Because of Oster’s findings and subsequent scientific experiments there are now recordings that use binaural beats which can induce deep states of mediation within a few minutes of listening to themTo use sound for creating deep states of meditation it is necessary to have two tones that are different only in frequency. When these sounds are merged they create binaural beats in the brain. Let me explain.These sounds are then used to create binaural beats in a very unique way. By sending one sound to one ear and the other sound to the other ear the brain creates a beat type effect to be heard. The illusion of hearing a beat that does not really exist has an amazing affect on the brain. These binaural beats create brainwaves that are the same frequency as the frequency difference between the two sounds.This is how binaural beats can be used to create the very same state as a person who can enter deep states of meditation.Even though using binaural beats will guarantee you succeefully enter deep states of meditation you may want to try it using a more traditional approach.Over the centuries many different forms of meditation have been established. Some use breathing techniques while others use mental techniques such as concentrating on one focused thought and holding it.By far the easiest way to experience meditation is through the use of binaural beats. However you can experience the state right now by relaxing, closing your eyes and repeating a question you want the answer to over and over in your mind. With each answer you get you ask “is it more than that?” until you feel you have reached the final answer.If you are interested in learning meditation then I strongly suggest you try it. If you don’t have the time to invest in learning the techniques involved then get some binaural beats. Binaural beats will ensure you enter a meditative and there are man y differ ent ones intended to produce different results.
