What are Binaural Beats and Why you should use them

Binaural Beats are two different frequencies played simultaneously one in the left ear and one in the right ear creating a tone.

For example let’s say that your left ear receives a frequency of 310 Hz and the right one receives 300 Hz . The frequency that your brain will listen to is the difference between these two.

In our case 10 Hz will be the tone that your brain will listen to and your brainwaves will resonate with the 10 Hz beat.

When your brain hears that beat , your brainwave syncs with the frequency. These brainwaves may have psychic , spiritual healing and cognitive enhancing properties .

Binaural beats are a form of brain entertainment and can be used in healing meditation , relaxing meditation , as yoga music , or any other way .

There are several benefits of listening to Binaural Beats

The following waves are useful for studying :

Alpha has problem solving proprieties. When you can’t figure out a way to solve a problem that means there’s a lack of alpha waves .

Alpha is able to get rid of mental blocks(these blocks prevent you from solving problems) and enhances your cognition speed leading to improved thinking.
