35 – Music and Binaural Beats in Guided Meditations

Part 5: Deep Relaxation Guided Meditations

- Lesson #35


The meditations in this program have been designed for the ultimate relaxation. For this purpose, the background music has been designed to help with this and contains binaural beats to assist in taking you in to that deep meditative trance.

Binaural beats are a way of changing brainwaves through sound. The way they work is simple and yet really odd at the same time. They are the auditory equivalent of an optical illusion.

You take two pure tones at slightly different frequencies and play one in each ear and the brain creates a pulsing rhythm or beat. The beat doesn’t actually exist in reality, it is just the way your brain interprets the contrasting tones. Because the beat is created within your own mind, your brainwave frequency tends to move towards that of the imagined beat.

For instance, playing a tone of 300Hz in your left ear and 308Hz in your right ear will create a binaural beat of 8Hz, meaning 8 cycles per second. If you read the chapter on brainwaves, you’ll know that this will create an Alpha brainwave frequency that will help with relaxation.

There is a lot of information about binaural beats on the internet if you are interested. Many people create pure binaural beats for specific therapeutic and entertainment purposes. If this is an area you’d like to look into more, be warned that some of the more extreme binaural beats can have some wild effects on your nervous system.

The binaural beats in these meditations are very low and unobtrusive and should have only positive effects on people. If you feel that they are affecting you negatively for any reason, please stop the meditation and use a version of the meditations without the binaural beats.

James is an author of the book Empowering Thoughts, a meditation educator, empowerment specialist, hypnotherapist, filmmaker, and photo-artist. He has had a passion for meditation since being introduced at high school. Since then he has studied various forms of meditation before discovering hypnosis and recognising the similarities. He now teaches hypnotic meditation, as well as creating and publishing guided meditations that people can use for personal development. his creative work can be found at JamesCole.com.au

I believe that education on personal development is such an integral part of human growth that I simply cannot justify making it unavailable to people by charging extreme amounts of money for it. In my opinion, this stuff should be taught freely at schools.

However, we live in a world where money is required to pay the bills and fill the fridge. Your donation will ensure I can continue to provide this service and really does make a huge difference as this is what I survive off.

It takes a lot of time, skill and effort to create the content on this web site, which is why the guided meditations are constantly ranked amongst the highest quality on apps like Insight Timer (the worlds No.1 Meditation app).

As a sign of appreciation for your donation, I would love to shout your name from the rooftops (which probably doesn’t really do much for you) so instead, I can also shout it from the social media rooftops if you like, along with your business name if you have one. And if you want to remain anonymous, we can make that work too.

I am honoured that you took the time to listen to this meditation and overflowing with gratitude for your donation 🙏💜

Wishing you a most beautiful day,

James Cole
