‘Binaural beats’ is a form of guided meditation which can facilitate an alpha, theta and delta brain wave state. When you listen to the sounds, do it at your ‘being level’. Let it come in. Experience it. Don’t examine it ‘intellectually’ or you won’t achieve your meditation goals.
Don’t have expectations. Having a goal or intention to work on a particular problem or seeking information is OK. Let the sound be the background. Have the attitude of ‘whatever happens, will happen’.
You might not enjoy the sound of the ‘beats’ at first, but later you may have a ‘favorite’. You have to experiment to discover which sounds or frequencies you like. It is just another tool for meditation and relaxation. Ultimately, the ‘goal’ is not using binaural beats at all.
You can create your own version of binaural beats. Men tend to like lower frequencies and women the higher. I didn’t make my own, I downloaded the online version which works fine for me. I prefer ‘pink noise, rain drops and rain’. You might be different, but that’s OK.
Lately, when I use the software during meditation, I often ‘visualize’ things in nature like a body of water surrounded by trees with shale rocks below on the shore. You may see things, maybe not. I would keep an open mind, but be skeptical. Stay open to anything, yet be sure to question whatever comes your way.
Your body might vibrate. You might feel like you are flapping in the breeze. You could see similar things of nature like I do, but you can also view things through ‘feeling’ they are there. Don’t think and don’t judge. Let it happen. Let it be.
You are ‘free’ to do whatever you decide your ‘consciousness’ is open to receiving. If you are ‘fearful’ something might ‘get you’, it might take some time to dispel those fears. Be patient. Keep practicing. Be brave. Continued.
