Binaural Beats - For Sleep, Relaxation, etc.
Have any of you listened to binaural beats? I've been listening to one in particular for I guess two weeks now. I tried a couple of others but they weren't as relaxing. I mainly use these to try and fall asleep and mid-day relaxation/meditation while lying down.
I heard about them last month on an episode of the Dr. Oz Show. The guest speaker and author of Proof Of Heaven Dr. Jeffrey Long had a near-death experience and said that binaural beats are for "enhancing meditation" and "getting into states of consciousness where we are freed." I think those who've been doing meditation for years could have an out of body experience is what he's suggesting. However, that is not important to me right now. I'm using it for relaxation, meditation and falling asleep.
I did try an ambient mp3 since finding out about this and there just is no effect. There is something to these binaural beats I believe. There is a science behind it, but it's considered pseudo-science at the moment. It relates to our brain waves. I can't quite fall asleep with it yet, though. That's probably because I'm a side sleeper. So I lie there on my back. I can feel myself falling into a sleep, but then suddenly taken out. I even feel the hypnic jerks (muscle twitching before sleep). So it definitely is relaxing the entire body. That and the meditative breathing and focus. I just wish I could fall asleep. There is something called "Sleep Phones" that is designed for side sleepers that I may get.
Would like to hear your experiences with this if anyone has them.
