Learn how binaural beats were discovered and how they can dramatically change your life.

Binaural beats are specific sounds that are created to alter brainwave frequencies. By changing someone's brainwave frequencies,Guest Posting through a method called brain entrainment, with binaural beats you can change your mental and physical state.

Research has shown that all physical states have corresponding brainwave states. This means that anxiety, stress, emotional distress or any number of negative mental and physical states have certain brainwave patterns associated with them. By using binaural beats you can alliviate the symptoms of these states and even remove them by changing the brainwave pattern associated with them.

Likewise, positive states such as deep relaxation, sleep, calmness etc., also have certain brainwave patterns. It is easy to create these states by using binaural beats.

There is strong empirical evidence that suggests certain braibnwave frequencies can be induced for increased creativity, better retention and recall and removale of emotional disharmony and memories..

There are people who have known this for thousands of years and who have practised their own method for inducing these brainwave patterns. Before binaural beats the only other way to create changes in your brainwave frequencies was through deep meditation. It normally takes over 20 years to learn how to enter these deep states.

Now though, we can have access to these states easily through brain entrainment.

Binaural beats allows anyone to enter deep meditative states within minutes. All you need are stereo headphones and a well chosen brain entrainment track.

Binaural beats were discovered in 1839 by Heinrich Wilhelm Dove. He discovered, as an Associate Professor at the University of Berlin, that when he played one sound into the right ear and a similar sound, that was only slightly different in frequency, to the left ear, the brain produced a beat effect. Even though no beat exists the brain interprets the difference between the frequencies of the two sounds and creates the illusion that there is one. These are binaural beats.

In 1973 a paper was published titled "Auditory Beats in the Brain" which outlined the findings of Dr. Gerald Oster who investigated the uses of binaural beats.

The report showed how Gerald Oster expanded on Dove's discovery. Oster discovered that through the use of binaural beats he could alter a subject's brainwaves to match the beat.

On every occasion the listener's brainwaves would begin to resonate to the same frequency as the binaural beats. Oster had discovered that by using these beats he could create precise mental and physical states.

Later research has concluded that binaural beats can be used as a method of meditation which brings all the same benefits that traditional meditation does. This means that as well as using them to create relaxation, deep sleep, calmness etc., it can be used as a means for personal, emotional and mental growth. Binaural beats can literally be used to change you from the inside out!
