Delta Binaural Beats for Deep Relaxation: Podcast 6

Delta Binaural Beats for Deep Relaxation: Podcast 6

MUST use Headphones for Maximum Benefit

If they are well-received, I am going to start sharing various audios for my subscribers designed to help in our relentless pursuit of reconditioning the nervous system so to create a healthy parasympathetic reset (i.e., Relaxation Response). Those of you who have watched my videos understand the importance of this goal by now.

The above audio uses binaural beats to encourage delta level brainwave activity which is the level of activity for deep, restorative sleep. Lower theta and upper delta brainwave activity is great for healing and restoration.

Put on your headphones and settle into a comfortable position, relax, and focus on a visualization of your goals for the session. For example, see yourself sleeping soundly all night and awakening refreshed in the morning, See images of the healing you want as if it has already happened, etc. (Turn the sound down to a comfortable level between 25% and 14%)

NOTE: You MUST use Headphones with Binaural Beats. One rhythm is delivered on one side, another rhythm on the left side, and the brain mixes them together for a third rhythm called a binaural beat.

Below are some of my videos that explain why a healthy reset of the nervous system is so important:

Part 13: Window of Tolerance & the Autonomic Ladder
Today let’s talk about the autonomic nervous system which is an important part of the central nervous system. In this fast-paced world we must become expert managers of stress! The autonomic nervous system has two branches. The sympathetic nervous system is the part of the autonomic nervous system that is activated when we trigger the fight or flight s…

Part 3: Basic Neuroplasticity
What is neuroplasticity? This lesson gives us an orientation to the neuroscience behind PTSD, trauma, attachment wounds, and everything we learn over the course of our lives, even the good stuff! The name sounds complicated, and make no mistake, the structure of the brain and central nervous system can be as complicated as we want it to be. But our purp…

Let me know in the comments if you like these audios if you would me to post more of them.

Here is a brief summary of the differences in brainwave activity:

  • Delta Brainwave Activity: Binaural beats in the delta level operate at a frequency of 0.5–4 Hz with links to a dreamless sleep. Studies indicate people who received a delta pattern frequency during sleep entered a deeper stage of sleep, according to electroencephalogram (EEG) brain scan results.

  • Theta Brainwave Activity: Practitioners set binaural beats in the theta level brainwave activity to a frequency of 4–7 Hz. Theta activity contributes to improved meditation, creativity, and sleep in the rapid eye movement (REM) phase.

  • Alpha Brainwave Activity: Binaural beats in the alpha level activity are at a frequency of 7–13 Hz and may encourage relaxation.

  • Beta Brainwave Activity: Binaural beats in the beta frequency are at approximately 13–30 Hz. This range may help promote concentration and alertness. However, it can also increase anxiety at the higher end of the range.

NOTE: Do not listen while driving or engaging in any safety-sensitive activity.
