The Pachamama Yoga Podcast features FREE Sound Therapy Healing Music featuring Binaural Beats, Monaural Beats, Isochronic Tones, Pure Solfeggio Tones, and Schumann Resonance. This brainwave entrainment music is composed to shift your consciousness to awaken enlightened thoughts, dive faster into deep meditative states and access different brainwave states. Choose from several Alpha brainwave binaural beats tracks to induce meditative states, while Theta and Delta binaural beats can reach the unfathomable states of the subconscious mind with lucid dreaming and stimulate REM sleep.
Something enigmatic happens to your brain when you play a steady tone at two slightly different frequencies. If one headphone speaker plays a low, constant drone at 400 Hz and the other at 410 Hz, you’ll start to hear a third pulse or beat. The odd thing is there’s no physical beat — it’s all in your head. This is an auditory trick called a binaural beat, sort of like an optical illusion for your ears.
You can hear the curious beat at the center of this optical illusion best with a pair of good headphones to drown out interfering sound. When each ear picks up a slightly different pitch, the brain tries to compensate and finds a frequency somewhere in the middle. This causes both hemispheres of the brain to harmonize their brainwaves, a phenomenon called neural brainwave entrainment. Brainwaves are the regular patterns that firing neurons create in our brains, so binaural beats bring these rhythmic patterns into alignment.
