The world is full of natural cycles which affect our body's own rhythms. Deep Meditation uses two cyclical frequences, called binaural beats, to create a very settled state of mind. Now you can enjoy ultra-deep meditation without the need for years of training.
Scientific research and personal testimony both support the effectiveness of binaural beats to alter mood and perception, particularly when used for meditation, concentration and sleep.
This is possible due the brain's natural ability to adopt a frequency stimulus, or rhythm. A very familiar example of this principle is music, which has been used for thousands of years to inspire, relax and excite.
Enjoy deep states of meditation at the touch of a button, try this free binaural beat for yourself!
Deep Meditation is mp3 format and lasts for 30-minutes. You may hear the beats as a faint humming or pulsing behind the sound of rain and wind chimes. You do not need to actively listen to this, nor do you need to be able to clearly hear the tones. Just set the volume of the audio to a comfortable level.
Use the audio on its own or together with your normal meditation.
This audio has been custom-made for deep meditation and should not be used while undertaking activity. Stereo headphones are required.
Deep Meditation is divided into three (seamlessly integrated) parts, as follows.
1. It takes typically 7-8 minutes for the brain to tune-in to binaural beats, use this time to settle down and relax. Start by focusing on your breath or follow any simple meditation/relaxation routine while the alpha-beats (relaxation/openness) relax your mind and help you let go.
2. The middle part of the meditation contains theta-beats. At this stage you are already deep in meditation, less aware of your surroundings and will likely be supremely relaxed. Time may seem to go by either very slowly or very quickly, some people experience flashes of light, voices or dream-like states. This is completely normal for theta-brainwave activity (which is associated with REM/dreaming sleep), and is not an anomaly created by the binaural beats.
3. In the final part of the audio, delta-beats, you are in super-deep meditation. If you are tired you may fall asleep, as this is the normal state of delta brainwave activity. Some of the time, and with regular use, you will remain alert AND be in this ultra-deep, silent state where there is very little or no mental activity.
This is the state of restful-alertness: the 4th state of consciousness referred to in the Mandukya Upanishad as turiya avastha. The mind is fully awake but completely still, often there is no body awareness and a sense of being one-with-all.
The background is our Summer Rain soundscape layered with the sound of gently swaying wind chimes. The hypnotic chimes and pink noise of rain help block out unwanted sound and improve the effectiveness of the binaural beats.
The sound of wind chimes on Deep Meditation is Wind Chimes by psakion, from The Freesound Project.
