Binaural beats have become an increasingly popular method of achieving quicker states of meditation, relaxation, and solving a host of other problems such as insomnia, depression, addictions, and more. They can be easily learned and without a great deal of practice.
Binaural beats are created by listening with a set of stereo headphones to a set of different frequencies that are introduced to each ear. This frequency differential produces a third frequency that is "heard" internally by the brain. This third frequency will correspond to the one or more of the four major frequency ranges that have been identified through research as existing in the brain.
Binaural beat recordings have been used to help people stop smoking, cure sleep disorders, depression, improve your health, relieve anxiety, and increase learning ability. You can alter or induce almost any kind of behavior that you want.
The beauty of listening to binaural beats is that they can be easily obtained on the internet and downloaded and are reasonably inexpensive. You can learn how to use them at your own pace and they can be tailored to whatever problem you are trying to solve.
They mostly involve some level of a meditative state. Engaging in meditation has been shown to have numerable health and emotional benefits. It's a good idea to set aside some time every day to sit and meditate.
