Where It’s At

Healing binaural beats and theta waves

    What in our environment creates a sense of peace? Places, sounds in nature, music?

    How many times have you been outdoors on a windy day to find yourself entranced by the movement of trees as the wind gently rocks them from side to side? As the wind moves the tall, thin trunks of younger trees to brush against one another, the sound is reminiscent of wind chimes – coconut shell chimes on a warm, lightly breezy day … The sounds of birdsong, crickets, a purring of a cat; waves splashing and crashing on the beach and over rocks affect us similarly; these sound frequencies of nature resonate with our souls. We and nature are one.

    I know at this point some readers will be thinking, ‘oh here we go with this Age of Aquarius type nonsense’ or worse; but stick with me.

    The power of nature and the sounds of all the creatures within it do more than cause us to feel relaxed; it touches us to our core. And while the sound/white noise machines can provide us with the sound of the ocean, forest, rain, thunder, there’s another source for us to turn to to reduce our anxiety and help us relax … and you can find it on a variety of YouTube channels.

    Sound wave therapy right at your fingertips goes beyond what a sound machine can do for you. Meditative, healing sound wave frequencies that de-stress, relax and infuse us with a sense of well-being, of serenity and peace. You can release negative energy and negative thought patterns; clear your chakras; promote happiness, self-confidence and increased creativity; and perhaps begin healing our DNA.

    Without getting too scientific – because, number 1, I couldn’t; and number 2 if I tried I could potentially undo all the good gained through the meditation music I listened to last night. But, onward now to beats of the binaural kind. On the Medical News Today website/newsletter, binaural beats therapy is based on the fact that the right and left ear each receive a slightly different frequency tone, yet the brain perceives these as a single tone. So, for our brains to pick up on a binaural beat, the frequencies have to be lower than 1,000 hertz (Hz). So, if your left ear registers a tone at 200 Hz and the right ear at 210Hz, the binaural beat for you would be 10 Hz, the difference between the two frequencies. And our brains pick up on binarual beats only if we are listening through headphones because the efffectiveness of the beats that are created in our brains is increased.

    The full explanation gets quite a bit involved with the role of musical theory, the key of “C;” the Schumann Resonance of 7.83 Hz, and more, way more – you can look that all up yourselves.

    Instead, let’s just jump right into one of the therapeutic hertz’s: number 432. Crystalblueent.com/brainwaves on the 432 Hz / Theta Wave, states new information is “demonstrating that the brain and nervous system can, and do, become entrained to whatever frequencies to which they are exposed. Research is now further confirming that when you are exposed to these healing frequencies, your body begins to readjust and all physiological processes slowly normalize over time.”

    OK – tell me that isn’t a mind-blowing bit of info! Now, before I continue about the YouTube channels that dial into therapeutic hertz’s like 432, 528 and others, and before you get carried away by “physiological processes slowly normalizing,” remember: None of these frequencies are substitutes for conditions your primary care provider may be treating you for with medication; yet, they can compliment, can have a positive impact on your life … while you sleep.

    Some of my favorite audios are from The Honest Guys (with over 1 million followers): Here’s the link for one: https://youtu.be/JViKIngPum8 Tune in to this one at bedtime tonight, three hours of “ultra deep relaxation,” binaural beat (432 Hz music / Theta Wave). Here’s how the Guys describe it:

    Specifically designed to induce an extremely deep level of relaxation through the use of a musical landscape tone woven into a binaural beat. The binaural beat is set at a frequency of 4.5Hz to induce the deepest relaxation experience. The tuning pitch of the music is at 432 Hz – said to be mathematically consistent with the universe by vibrating with the universe’s golden mean PHI and unifying the properties of light, time, space, matter, gravity and magnetism with biology, the DNA code and consciousness. The number 432 is also reflected in ratios of the Sun, Earth, and the moon, as well as the precession of the equinoxes, the Great Pyramid of Egypt, Stonehenge, the Sri Yantra, among many other sacred sites.”

    After reading that, you want to go to bed right now, don’t you? Well, perhaps not all of you, but I know some of you do. I have to say that mornings after falling to sleep listening to this audio, I wake up feeling content, positive and grounded.

    Here’s another I like to give a listen: https://youtu.be/8M143iRrbgw - Happiness Frequency: Serotonin, Dopamine, Endorphin Release Music, Release Negativity. After shutting off your alarm clock, or telling Alexa to, this one will make you feel lighter, as if one of the weights that’s been tying you down has become undone – but you, on the other hand, have not.

    Here’s one I found just a few weeks ago, I mean, who doesn’t need tissue regeneration after six-plus decades ... Tissue Regeneration & Rapid Healing | Music for Sleep | Solfeggio sleep music.

    What’s this now? Solfeggio? What or who is that? This is what relaxmelodies.com told me: Solfeggio frequencies were rediscovered by a doctor and researcher, Joseph Puleo in the 1970s who brought the benefits of the frequencies to the public. Dr. Puleo used “mathematical numeral reduction to identify six measurable tones that bring the body back into balance and aid in healing.”

    Puleo, who also referred to the frequencies as mystic tones, said they were “mathematically in tune with the universe and (each one is) believed to hold special healing powers.”

    And here are the frequencies and corresponding power – 174 Hz relieves pain and stress; 285 Hz heals tissues and organs; 396 Hz liberates you from fear and guilt; 417 Hz facilitates change; 528 Hz is for transformation and DNA repair; 639 Hz reconnects you with your relationships; 741 Hz helps provide solutions and self-expression; 852 Hz brings you back to a spiritual order, and 963 HZ creates room for oneness and unity, known as the frequency of the Gods.

    I wonder under what frequency mind-blowing is at …Check it out. Read about it. Or just experience it. Find more peace for your mind and your body; and thank your lucky stars you are living in the Age of Aquarius, a period in which more and more people are open to alternative healing; open to swimming out of the mainstream.

    “It makes sense that listening to music tuned to 432 Hz (8 Hz) would make us feel more calm and balanced; because it's in our DNA. We come from the Earth. We are part of the Earth.”– Binaural Beats Meditation website
