I am curious if any of you have ever heard of or tried Binaural Beats? My teenage son turned me on to this as he finds them on YouTube and has been listening them at night to relax and fall asleep. For those that don't know what this is, here is a basic definition:
Binaural beats were originally discovered in 1839 by physicist Heinrich Wilhelm Dove. He discovered when signals of two different frequencies are presented separately, one to each ear, your brain detects the phase variation between the frequencies and tries to reconcile that difference.
In doing so, as the two frequencies mesh in and out of phase, your brain creates its own third signal — called a binaural beat — which is equal to the difference between those two frequencies.
By introducing a precise harmonically layered blend of frequencies to your brain via our audio technology, you can effortlessly achieve powerful states of focused concentration, deep relaxation and more, all while stimulating parts of your brain to work together in synchronization.
When you listen to this it is intensely relaxing (which as an empath I often struggle to relax). I've started using it while meditating and I've reached a deeper state than I ever have. And after doing a little research I found that listening to Binaural Beats is particularly healing for empaths.
