Meditones vs Binaural Beats
Have you ever tried to meditate but found it difficult? Do you get easily overwhelmed and find it hard to calm down? Struggling with stress, anxiety or insomnia?
Then you might be thrilled to discover there is something that can help you feel instantly calm, and gain all the benefits of deep meditation like:
- stress relief
- reduced anxiety
- blissful sleep, and
- better mood
They're called meditones®.
Meditones help you produce calm brain waves effortlessly.
The catch? You don't have to do a thing. You just need to listen to them with headphones.
Meditones help you feel:
- instantly calm
- more grounded
- less anxious
- light and inspired
- clear and focused
- relief from pain
- relaxed and restored
Plus, long term use helps you to become and stay calm more often.
Long Term Benefits of Meditones
As you listen to meditones, your brain is rewiring itself to be more calm and resilient.
This is because of the science of neuroplasticity.
Years ago, scientists believed that we were born with a finite number of neurons (brain cells) that died as we aged.
However, we now know that the brain is constantly changing and adapting to its environment. Your brain has infinite potential for transformative change.
When you use meditones, you expose your brain to calm states of consciousness. Then your brain adapts to that calm environment, creating calm neural pathways.
The more you use meditones, the stronger those calm neural pathways become. They physically become thicker through repetition.
Imagine your brain as a large field of tall grass. There are a few different pathways across the field.
Some are well worn paths, others are slightly overgrown, and there are large patches of thick, impenetrable grass. Which path are you going to choose to cross the field?
The easiest solution is to choose the well worn path.
The same is true for your brain. It loves efficiency. It’s much easier for the brain to choose a pathway that is thick and strong.
Just like the well worn path through a field of tall grass, your neural pathways become thicker through repetition.
And the more you form calm neural pathways, the more your brain will choose calm responses instead.
Which means, the more you use meditones, the stronger those calm neural pathways become. Making it easier to become and stay calm naturally.
How Do Meditones® Work?
The scientific term for meditones are binaural beats (bye-n-oar-al bee-ts).
Unfortunately, the term binaural beats can be confusing. It's difficult to pronounce and it sounds like it might be a drum beat or rhythm.
So we changed it to meditones. Because they're tones that give you the benefits of deep meditation.
But before we can talk about how meditones work, we first need to understand brain waves.
There are 4 major brain wave states: Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta. Brain waves are measured in Hertz (Hz).
If you imagine a wave at the beach, Hertz would be the number of times (or frequency) the waves crashed onto the shore per second.
You’re always producing all of these brain waves but you become dominant in one type depending on your activity.
BETA: 12-30 Hertz. Dominant while you’re awake and actively engaged. Benefits include alert focus and logical thinking.
ALPHA: 8-12 Hertz. Dominant during day dreaming and relaxation. Benefits include calm focus and quiet reflection.
THETA: 4-8 Hertz. Dominant during REM sleep. Benefits include enhanced meditation and deep calm.
DELTA: 1-4 Hertz. Dominant during deep, restorative sleep. Benefits include deep healing and regeneration.
Remember, brain waves are measured in Hertz. But sound waves are also measured in Hertz.
Which means we can use sound waves to stimulate brain waves that resonate at the same frequency.
And this is how meditones work…
The Science Of Meditones
A vibration is created when two slightly different frequencies of pure sound are combined.
For example: One frequency at 420 Hertz and another at 424 Hertz produces a vibration of 4 Hertz (424 - 420 = 4).
When you listen to this vibration with a pair of headphones, your brain synchronises to that frequency.
Which means, when you listen to a vibration of 4 Hertz, your brain will produce brain waves of 4 Hertz or Theta brain waves. Helping you feel deeply calm. Effortlessly.
Meditones vs Guided Meditations
Inside the Seekers' Sanctuary there are a number of meditones tracks that include guided meditations. However, most tracks are simply music with meditones. There are a few particular benefits of meditones only music.
1. Meditones music has no agenda
Because there is no particular journey being dictated to you, your brain will do the subconscious healing for you. Whatever needs to be revealed or released will come in its own time and way. Sit back and relax and let meditones do the deep work for you.
2. Meditones music works immediately
Because meditones naturally stimulate relaxed brainwaves, you’re able to experience deep meditative states effortlessly. You don’t have to do anything to feel calm. This makes meditones perfect for beginners, or for times you can’t meditate – because you’re too tired, in pain, or distressed.
3. Meditones music enhances traditional practices
Because there are no guided vocals, meditones can deepen your personal meditation practice. If you are a seasoned meditator, meditones help enhance focused forms of meditation like Vipassana, pranayama, mindfulness, and Transcendental Meditation. Just pop on your headphones and meditate as you normally would. Feel the difference and the depth that meditones can bring to your practice.
Before you dive into the blissful world of meditones, there are a few important things to remember.
- The meditones effect only works with headphones. This is because the brain processes them differently to normal sound.
- Closed headphones that cover the whole ear (rather than earbuds that sit inside the ear) give you a superior meditones experience. This is because closed headphones have a better frequency range and also help to block outside sound.
- Meditones stimulate neural activity. Whilst there is no clear evidence that auditory entrainment cause seizures, meditones music may not be suitable for people with epilepsy. If you have concerns, please speak with your doctor. Any use of meditones is always at your own risk.
