WALESKA, GA How does music put you in a trance? It is simple; it is all about binaural beats. Your brain creates an imaginary tone when it is introduced to two different frequencies at the same time. A frequency of 315 Hz in one ear, and 325 Hz in the other ear, results in a 10 Hz Binural beat.   When you listen to this music it can put you in a meditative state, you can get a better night’s sleep, and you’re able to concentrate very effectively. It can even have healing capabilities, without taking a drug or medication, your body will calm your body down.

By listening to specific tones, it can change your state of mind, and there are even different frequencies of binaural beats. If you want a feeling that is almost spiritual and a feeling of floating, listen to 38hz-42hz – Gamma waves. If you want to be really focused and productive, listen to 12hz-38hz – Beta waves. If you want to meditate, listen to 8hz-12hz – Alpha waves. If you want to escape the world around you, and almost drift out of consciousness, listen to 6–10 Hz theta waves. If you want to fall into a deep asleep, listen to 5hz – 3hz – Delta. People who are in rehab use binaural beats because some of the frequencies can give the brain the same sensation that a drug would. It’s worth a try, especially if someone has problems with sleeping or studying. It doesn’t do any harm to the brain if anything its good for it!
