Has anyone tried Binaural Beats before meditation for smoothly moving into theta brain waves?
I dunno about theta waves specifically, but I experimented pretty extensively with them in the past. Found they work very well here around 5Hz or so to bring on a state of peaceful relaxation. Haven't messed with them for years tho, so no further suggestions or anything.
I was a bit skeptical in the beginning but it works.
5Hz is indeed Theta.
A great resource to download free mp3 files with binaural beats is http://www.jetcityorange.com/meditation/binaural-beats.html.
hey, tnx a lot for the link.
binaural beats are excellent thing. For our purposes, it is advised to use the simple pure signals (like the ones in the link) and not the "new age" versions that include also music, water sounds etc. Plus, they are free of charge :-)
Glad I stumbled upon this topic. I'd love to get started!
It's super amazing, like taking a drug without taking a drug. Helps a lot in meditation and channeling.
In days when I hear them a lot, I vision people right before I see them in the street and things work out magically.
Just be careful not to rush right away to the Theta but always go through the higher frequencies and also not to listen to it to much (hours), especially not to the beta ones. Just be careful and aware to side effects if occur.
Last thing: they all sound the same to the conscious listener but after some time by the feeling and mood you can tell which of the frequencies you are currently listening without looking at the iPod screen.
I tried them on their own. Not necessarily as a prelude to meditation. They feel really good. Body tingles and vibrates. Good feeling. Nothing scarey at all.
Then I realized you can experience the same with a simple metronome sound of 5-10 cyles per second.
I stopped using them. Not sure why. Lazy I guess.
I can get the same vibrations and tingles by body scanning from toe to head while lying flat on my back before sleep, no pillow.
...whey I stopped using them.
They're a great high. But that's about it. Nothing lasting.
I'd rather spend my time practicing, with my eyes closed, 15 mins or so first thing each morning, focusing narrowing concentrating attention on my breath. Because when I open my eyes again until 24 hours later when sit with eyes closed again, I can practice throughout the entire day that same focus on my breath.
If I have time to waste for kicks, I'll probably put on the stereo headphones again and lie down for 20 mins and enjoy the innerbody waves and vibrations. Pleasant waste of time really. Like playing wii.
Seems there weas a lot of this technology
springing up in the 80's. I was an original
test subject for Acoustic Brain Research out
of Chapel Hill NC way back when. Then came
along a string of other companies experimenting
with higher learning. One very good explanation
of how it works can be found at Center Point,
though their product was a multi-phase progression
that even in the early 90's wasn't cheap. Basically
you are expected to go through catharsis and release
of unwanted mental baggage which for some can be
rather intense or unsettling as in a full blown
spiritual emergency sort of peak experience in
the popular transpersonal vernacular. After all
life is a process and if you do go with Center
Point I see little need in buying into the higher
levels they will try to sale you, the first phase
works just fine for practical purposes of reconnecting
with the awakened aspects of being. Though they
most likely have changed their marketing formate
since way back when.
