Beats Not Working For you?

Have you…

  • Tried binaural beats for some time and were unable to get much benefit from them?

  • Used binaural beats for meditation but have found the meditative state as elusive as ever?

  • Tried binaural beats for entraining the mind but have not been successful?

If you said yes to any of the above, the first thing you should do is stop worrying. Relax and take comfort in the fact that binaural beats do work for everyone ... when used correctly.

You may be unknowingly doing certain things wrong, which, in turn, could be preventing you from enjoying the numerous benefits that brain entrainment offers. So the next time you use binaural beats follow the simple tips listed here, and in likelihood you will get the desired results.

  • Do not do any mind-stimulating activity while listening

For entrainment to work, you must listen to them at a time when you are not likely to be disturbed. Additionally, avoid doing any mind-stimulating activities during the course of your session.

  • Listen with your eyes closed

Closing your eyes while listening will help you focus on the music better. Also to get the best results, listen to the audio module lying still. This is because the more you move your body and muscles, the more that is going to disrupt the brainwave patterns, preventing you from fully settling into the mind-state that binaural beats are evoking.

  • Use stereo headphones

Why? Because binaural beats are created in your brain and do not exist at a 'real' level. If you don't use headphones or if the headphones you use are not of good quality, other sounds will mix with the played beats and the brain will then be not able to properly perceive the different frequency of beats.

Noise-cancelling stereo headphones are best for brain entrainment purposes, as they block all or most of the ambient noise. If you don't have a pair of such headphones, consider buying one. Else use any standard stereo headphones, but remember they are not as effective as high-quality, noise-cancelling headphones. Avoid using earphones as they don't block external sounds and can cause discomfort or irritation when used continuously over a long period.

  • Give yourself enough listening time

The brain takes some time—about 7 minutes or so—to enter the mind state that binaural beats are evoking. Therefore, if a session is too short, you will not be able to fully enter and benefit from the intended mind-state.

  • Use an eye mask

An eye mask can prove handy when listening to an audio brainwave entrainment module during daytime or in open. Select an eye mask that blocks all ambient light and is comfortable to use.

  • Use a portable music player

A portable music player is best for carrying and listening to brainwave entrainment audios. While any decent portable music player will do, try to use audio files that are in a lossless format, such as flac. Such audio files offer superior sound quality than more commonly-used mp3 files.

Brainwave entrainment, when done correctly and regularly, can be a very rewarding practice. So what are you waiting for? Follow the tips listed here and let brainwave entrainment change you inside out.
