pretty girl headphones binaural beats stress

​​Have you ever noticed the music being pumped into the sound system at the locations where you do business? There's a hidden agenda behind this music you hear being played when you shop.

This is conducted for a certain purpose and it all has to do with getting you to whip out your credit card. The business wants to you to react to the psychological conditioning that's associated with the sound of frequencies you receive from the music that's being broadcast. So it will pump in music that's soft and uplifting or makes you feel amped up and energized.

The psychological reactions you have from the music you hear is that you start to feel more relaxed - even if the music is pepped up. In fact, some types of music are known to cause the level of serotonin production to be elevated in the brain.

When this reaction happens, you feel inspired and you are more open to part with your money. While the science supporting binaural beats is significantly different, this same physiological reaction to music is what happens when your brain “tunes into” precise audio frequencies–even if you only listen for a short time each day. Of course, this latter process is intended to attain results that benefit you.

The brain entrainment created by the binaural beats can positively affect your mood by influencing how you feel at that very moment. Your brain responds to frequencies you hear input into both ears, but with stereo headphones. It doesn't matter if you're doing some activity like reading or lying down to relax–these precisely calibrated frequencies are what will interact with your brainwaves.

Each frequency range corresponds with a certain category of brainwave, and you'll experience different reactions based on the brainwave state you tune into. In effect, that specific brain wave state is what influences how you respond to whatever is happening in your life.

Most neuroscientists report that Gamma waves in the brain are associated with the neural response. These are the brain waves that are associated with a higher, mental binding kind of repetitive action in the brain.

These gamma brain waves are supra responsive when you're doing a task or engaged in a thought process that requires higher mental exertion. When you need to focus in a free flow state at work, your gamma brain waves are the ones handling most of the highly focused inter-communication.

These are the waves responsible for you being able to solve complex problems at work or social issues in your personal life. If you need to solve a challenging puzzle like a crossword game, then the gamma brain waves are busy at work.

These types of brain waves are also connected to certain emotions like empathy and compassion. When you enter a state of fight or flight, this in part is linked to the gamma brain waves state. When you're very awake and alert, it's because these waves are kicking in. The frequency range of binaural beats associated with the gamma brain wave state is > 40 Hz.

The frequency range for beta brain waves is between 13-40 Hz. These brainwaves are activated more often when your body requires a physical exertion from you. When you're exercising at the gym or when you're running errands, these are the brain waves that are most active.

Beta brain waves assist your ability to concentrate or be consciously aware of the task at hand that you're doing–like when you're exerting mental energy while taking a test, or when you have to fill out a complicated form.

During intimate times within relationships, these brain waves are also stimulated, because they cause you to experience the feelings and effects of physical arousal (shhhh…when you get turned on).

These are all the beneficial, positive sides to what the beta brainwaves accomplish for you. On the negative side though, these same brain waves are also responsible for high stress levels that can lead to anxiety. That is, when you let your daily stress levels creep up on you and get out of control.

When you experience frustration and ​become worried, it's your brain’s beta waves that are communicating that message to the rest of your body. This is why stress can make you feel extremely anxious and cause you to feel those knots in your stomach. Incidentally, the stomach contains its own kind of neuronal network that communicates with your brain. But we’ll save that topic for another article.

Your brain is primarily sending that anxiety signal through the beta brainwaves. Using what's taught in the ParallaxMind Guided Meditation System, you will learn how to manage and control the stress signals that your brain’s beta brain waves are broadcasting to the rest of your nervous system and body.

When your day is winding down and you begin to enter a state of light relaxation, that's when your alpha waves are predominant. Their frequency range is between 7-13 Hz. Alpha brain waves are responsible for the way that you feel right before you fall asleep, known as “twilight sleep”–that very free, dosing in and out of deep relaxation, yet still awake feeling.

They're also the same brain waves attributed to how you feel when you're ​first waking up in the morning. You know, like when you want to keep hitting the snooze button for that “10 more minutes” of restful yet conscious sleep? As I mentioned in the last article, the time that the theta brain waves are most active is when you're in your REM, dreaming sleep time.

During this time is when you're having any vivid or lucid dreams while you're experiencing deep, restful sleep. The frequency range for these brain waves is between 4-7 Hz.

As your sleep time progresses into the night, you enter into a state of dreamless sleep–an ultra-deep sleep state that is highly regenerative in nature. This is due to your delta brain waves. At this level, the frequency range is at < 4 Hz. In reality, the human brain ebbs and flows into all the aforementioned states of sleep as you venture into sleep throughout the night.
