BETA WAVES 13 hz – 39 hz

during a busy, active day, busy thinking active concetration, arousal, cognition, paranoia. Beta is identified with active, busy or anxious thinking and active concentration. A healthy beta state allows you to think quickly and improve your focus. But too much time in the beta state can cause anxiety, stress, and paranoia, which can lead to muscle tension, depression, high blood pressure, and insomnia, among other sleep disturbances and health problems. While too much time in beta is obviously not good, a lack of sufficient beta activity can also cause mental or emotional disorders such as depression, ADD and insomnia. In such cases stimulating beta activity can improve emotional stability, energy levels, attentiveness and concentration.

ALPHA WAVES 8 hz – 12 hz

Alpha frequencies (Meditate with eyes open or closed) Develop greater stress resilience and lower anxiety levels Better focus, reading and study Calming of the emotional and physical system such as heart rates Improved creativity and meditation skills. When we begin to relax or begin to get drowsy, but are still awake and conscious, we are at the alpha level. Alpha patterns vary from deep alpha, a state of deep relaxation, (often referred to as the twilight state between sleep and waking) to the higher end of alpha that is a more focused, yet still a very relaxed state. Alpha is a very receptive, absorbent mental state and can be used for effective self-hypnosis, reprogramming the sub conscious, accelerated learning and more. When you spend more time in Alpha state, you find it easier to tap into your higher levels of creativity and expression. Light relaxation,  super learning positive thinking, Conducive to creative problem solving, accelerated learning, mood elevation, stress reduction, etc., relaxed, yet alert. Associated with calm, relaxed, unfocused (not concentrating), lucid mental states, dream sleep & pleasant drifting feelings or emotions; promotes mental resourcefulness, aids in mental coordination, enhances relaxation.

THETA WAVES 4hz – 7hz

Theta frequencies (Meditate with eyes closed) Support to the immune system and healing process. Deeper meditation and enhanced problem solving, Greater insight and creative flow Consolidation of information from short to long term memory. When we are asleep and have dreams, and experience rapid eye movement (REM), and even when we experience deep meditation, we are at the theta level. Theta is a dream like stage, pre-sleep or pre-awaken stage (or deep meditation stage). Theta is associated with a number of beneficial states such as: sustained attention over time, enhanced creativity, boosted immune system, increased long term memory, opening the mind to suggestion and new ideas, advanced problem solving, deep meditation and deep relaxation etc., In the slower theta brainwave pattern, the brain makes lots of relaxing endorphins that melt all your stress away. Access to subconscious images, deep meditation, reduced blood pressure, said to cure addictions; Reset the brain &  sodium potassium levels. Increases sex drive; found inner peace, mystical truths ,transforming, Military remote viewers operate in this range. Creativity, intuition, daydreaming, fantasizing, recollection, imagery, dreamlike, switching thoughts

DELTA WAVES 0,5 hz – 4 hz

Delta frequencies (Meditate with eyes closed). Enhanced meditation and expanded awareness, Physical and emotional healing and regeneration Increased feelings of connection and reduced opposition Cleansing of sub-conscious blockage Delta waves are usually associated with the unconscious and deep, slow brain activity found in deep sleep. At the delta level the body replenishes its energy, releases anti-aging hormones like human growth hormone (HGH*), relieves stress, and boosts the immune system. The delta state rejuvenates your mind, body, and spirit. When your dominant brainwave is delta, your body is healing itself and "resetting" its internal clocks so to speak. When we are in deep, dreamless sleep at the delta level the pituitary is stimulated to produce more HGH which is why we feel refreshed and replensished when we get a good nights sleep. The anti-aging properties of deep meditation come from the release of HGH when reaching the delta level during meditation.

Rediscovering the art and science of Sound healing

John Stuart Reid and Annaliese Kohinoor illustrate how sound is fast regaining its place as the pre-eminent healing modality. Having been first used by the ancients, sound therapy has undergone a period of re-discovery and is now poised to reveal the intricacies of healing both at the cellular and psychological levels.

Principles of Resonance
Everything has a frequency to which it is naturally tuned. This is known as its Prime Resonant Frequency(PRF). At this frequency, an object will more readily absorb energy. Each component of your body has its own prime resonant frequency.

Frequency

  • Relaxation  between 5hz and 10hz for different levels of relaxation
  • Meditation  between 4hz and 7hz, either cycle between a few, or stay at a particular frequency for different results
  • Induce Sleep between 4hz and 6hz for starters, then go into frequencies below 3.5hz, settling on about 1.5hz to 2.5hz for sleep
  • Creative Visualization  about 6hz for a while, then up to 10hz works well
  • Stress Reduction  any use of frequencies below 11hz will reduce stress
  • Self Hypnosis    about 8hz to 10hz while playing any self-hypnosis tape, or guided meditation
  • Super Learning about 7hz to 9hz while playing any learning tapes, like foreign language tapes, etc. to increase comprehension
  • Subliminal Programming 5hz to 7hz while playing your favorite subliminal tapes
  • Improve ESP / Intuition     Theta frequencies help in this area, 4hz to 7hz
  • Reaching Higher States of Consciousness  Theta again, with daily half hour sessions
  • Quick Refresher on long days   low Alpha 8hz to 10hz for 15 minutes works well

The role of intention in sound healing

The power of intention involves consciously drawing on the universal field of energy. Utilizing this potent, universal force along with healing sounds has been found to dramatically accelerate the healing process.

 

 

 

Sound is a highly effective tool for healing and, fortunately, an individual does not need to believe in it for it to work. However, there is another factor that can greatly amplify the effectiveness of healing: creative intention. It may be a long time before mainstream medicine recognizes the importance of intention. In contrast, most vibrational energy practitioners, including sound healing therapists, use a holistic approach that addresses both mind and body. When the power of intention is held, the chances of a successful outcome are greatly intensified.

Intention consists of using your focused thoughts, feelings and visualizations to attract whatever is desired, such as enhancing ones health. It seems possible that the energy of intention is carried on the frequencies of sound. American sound healer, Dr Steven Halpern, believes that, "Sound is a carrier wave of consciousness. intention is the spiritual counterpart of the sound and the combination of sound and intention create the outcome of healing. When using creative intention, there is the sense of being deeply inspired. (The word inspiration means in-spirit.) We are motivated to respond to a deeper calling with a firm belief, an absolute knowing, that our desire has already been fulfilled. When we merge the mind energizing force with the universal field of energy for the purpose of healing and creation, our health and the quality of our lives can be transformed.


Naturally, since we now know of the inter-relationship between the mind and the body, that which affects the emotional or mental will also effect the physical and vice-versa. This includes the spiritual body as well, of course.

Whenever we think a negative thought or feel a negative emotion, we shoot 12 volts of electricity into our energy field. Negative thoughts land in our mental subtle body. Heavy emotions land in our astral (emotional) subtle field. If we obsess about our negative thought or feeling, we can send a shock of electricity into our field every three minutes! Multiply this by the number of years of obsession with a problem, and that’s a lot of electricity!

How it works?

Through the use of sound we are able to transform and restore resonance to mind, body and spirit.

To enable an understanding of how Sound Healing works, it is useful to realise that everything in creation is actually energy, vibrating at different frequencies. Modern physicists continue to find evidence to support this belief.

Sound Healing is the therapeutic application of sound frequencies to the body & mind of a person, with the intent of bringing them into a state of harmony & health. In general, the more harmonious & pleasing this sound is, the more beneficial it is to us for healing purposes. Different areas of the body respond to the sounds made, “by locking in” or entraining to the sound and begines to vibrate at the same frequencies, thus bringing harmony & heath.

Sound Healing works on the principle that everything in the Universe is energy in vibration. Behind perceived reality is an incredible cosmic dance of interconnected energy fields.

 

The Origin of the Experience of Binaural Beats

We know that the experience of putting a given frequency tone in one ear and a slightly different tone in the other is that of hearing a third tone which is the difference in frequency of the two tones. Thus, putting a 200 Hz tone in one ear and a 210 Hz tone in the other would cause one to perceive a 10 Hz “beat” tone. An auditory brainstem response which originates in the superior olivary nucleus of each hemisphere.  The beat results from the interaction of two afferent auditoxy impulses, originating in opposite ears, below 1000 Hz; and which differ in frequency between one and 30 Hz.” The difference tone is experienced as the two waveforms flow in and out of phase within the superior olivary nuclei. The first reported use of the auditory effects of binaural beats, as detailed by Oster (1973), occurred in 1839. The originator was H. W. Dove, a German researcher.

Today, the binaural beat phenomenon is employed by a number of audiotape manufactures as a way of producing certain relaxed states in the listener. Foster examined, as part of his dissertation study, the degree to which these binaural beats at alpha frequency could result in an increase in alpha. He found that the binaural beats did indeed produce an increase in the occurrence of alpha however, another group which heard artificially produced surf sounds also showed a comparable increase in alpha. These two groups did not differ  ignificantly. Subjects did find that they seemed to be able to increase alpha more by concentrating on the binaural beat.
