Types of Binaural beats

Brainwave Frequencies – These are frequencies associated with various mental states. Using binaural beats one can enable their brain to tune to a certain frequency, and in doing so, they shall achieve the mental state associated with that frequency.

Healing Frequencies – These are frequencies that are used to heal illnesses of varying degrees or to stimulate a particular region of the body.

Natural Phenomena Frequencies – These are natural frequencies that occur within nature e.g. the Schumann’s Resonance. Also, there are tones calculated from the revolution/orbit of the various planets and these frequencies can affect humans in a variety of ways, again, they enable the individual to tune to the desired associated frequency.

Frequency rangeNameUsually associated with:
> 40 HzGamma wavesHigher mental activity, including perception, problem solving, and consciousness
13–39 HzBeta wavesActive, busy thinking, active processing , active concentration, arousal, and cognition
7–13 HzAlpha wavesCalm relaxed yet alert state
4–7 HzTheta wavesDeep meditation /relaxation, REM sleep
< 4 HzDelta wavesDeep dreamless sleep, loss of body awareness

The Effects of Specific Brain Waves

Each brainwave has a certain effect at a specific frequency. The list below will give a specific break down of the different brainwave ranges twinned with the specific frequencies and their effects.

Delta Brain Waves (0.5Hz – 4Hz)

0.5 Hz – Complete relaxation and headache relief.
0.5-1.5Hz – Natural pain relief through stimulating endorphin release.
0.9 Hz – Euphoric state.
1 Hz – Feeling of well-being; stimulation of pituitary glands to release growth hormones (helps recover from injuries, rejuvenate, and develop muscles).
2 Hz – Nerve regeneration.
2.5 Hz – Further pain and migraine relief from production of endogenous opiates. Natural sedative effect.
1-3 Hz – Restorative sleep and profound relaxation.
3.4Hz – Restful sleep.
3.5 Hz – Feeling of calmness, reducing anger and irritability. Retention of languages.
4Hz – Enkephalin release for natural stress and pain reduction. Improved memory, subconscious learning and problem solving.

Theta brain waves (4Hz – 7Hz)

4.5 Hz – Brings you into what is referred to as “the Tibetan state of consciousness”, a state of meditation.
4.9 Hz – Induced relaxation, meditation, introspection, and a deeper sleep.
5 Hz – State of unconscious problem solving. Less sleep is needed due to the Theta waves replacing the need for extensive dreaming. Beta endorphin release as a natural pain killer.
5.35 Hz – Deeper breathing, relaxing the lungs.
5.5 Hz – Giving the feeling of intuition, your inner guidance, and “gut feeling”.
5.8 Hz – Reduce fear, absent-mindedness, and dizziness.
6 Hz – Improves long-term memory and motivation; reduces procrastination and unwillingness to work.
4.5 Hz – 6.5 Hz – Waking dreaming (day dreaming) with vivid images.
6.5 Hz – Activates the frontal lobe which controls creativity.
6.2 Hz – 6.7 Hz – Activates Frontal Mid-line Theta that is active when engaged in cognitive activity such as solving math problems, playing Tetris, or other similar types of quick passive problem solving tasks.
6.88 Hz – Effects balance and stability.
3 Hz – 8 Hz – Deep relaxation, meditation, lucid dreaming, increased memory, focus, and creativity.
4 Hz – 7 Hz – Inner peace and emotional healing which lowers mental fatigue.
6 Hz – 10 Hz – Creative visualization, starts at 6Hz and moves up to 10Hz.

Alpha brain waves (7Hz – 13Hz)

7.5 Hz – Creative thought is activated for music, art, invention, and problem solving. Overcoming troublesome issues or problems due to ease in finding solutions through re-evaluation. This is a type of inter-awareness of ones self-purpose.
7.83 Hz – The Schumann Resonance. Very grounding as it is the same frequency as the magnetic field of the earth.
7.5 Hz – 8 Hz – For treating addictions, drug, alcohol, food, etc. Gives the person the “satisfied” feeling that they would normally get from their addiction.
8 Hz – 14 Hz – Qi Gong.
8.3 Hz – Heightens clairvoyance around visual images and metal objects.
8 Hz – 8.6Hz – Reduced stress and anxiety.
8 Hz – 10 Hz – Start of “super learning”, your passive ability to learn new information and memorize. It activates creative problem solving and intuitive insights. This is not an active focus on learning but a relaxed state your mind is in absorbing without active concentration.
9 Hz – Brings awareness of body imbalances.
10 Hz – Increased serotonin release bringing mood elevation, arousal; relives headaches and stimulates the body. Will bring clarity to the mind and give subconscious correlation.
10 Hz – 12 Hz – Improves the mind, body connection.
10.5 Hz – Lowers blood pressure. Associated with the Heart Chakra which is related to the Thymus, heart, blood, and circulatory system.
10.6 Hz – Relaxed and alert.
11 Hz – Brings you to a relaxed yet awake state. Can be a lucid state (day dreaming) but not from tiredness. Thoughts and emotions may pleasantly drift through your mind bringing calm. It can be a bridge between the conscious mind and the unconscious mind. Gives stress reduction.
12 Hz – Gives mental stability.
12 Hz – 14 Hz – Improves learning by absorbing information when you plan to think about it later.
12.3 Hz – Improves visualization.

Beta brain waves (13Hz – 39Hz) & Gamma brain waves (40Hz+)

13 Hz – 27 Hz – Focus with attention toward external stimuli. The normal waking consciousness, active thought process, and alert mental activity.
13 Hz – 30 Hz – Processing outside data your brain takes in, problem solving and active conscious thinking. A very wakeful state which combats drowsiness.
14 Hz – An awake, alert state. Allows you to focus and concentrate on tasks.
15 Hz – 18 Hz – Increases your mental abilities including focus, alertness, attentiveness and IQ. You are aware of yourself and surroundings and are alert but not agitated.
16 Hz – Stimulates oxygen/-calcium release into cells.
18 Hz – 24 Hz – Euphoria and ecstasy, similar to a runner’s high with serotonin release around 22Hz.
18+ Hz – A fully awake state with normal alertness. Significant improvements can be seen in memory, reading, spelling, math, and planning.
20Hz – Stimulation of the pineal gland. The frequency can help with tinnitus.
20 Hz – 40 Hz – Ideal meditation frequency for stress release.
31 Hz – Release of growth hormone, can help to develop muscles and recover from injuries (rejuvenation effects).
32Hz – Enhanced vigor and alertness.
33 Hz – Christ consciousness and the Pyramid frequency.
35 Hz – Balance of all chakras.
36 Hz – 44 Hz – The learning frequency range; will help maintain alertness when actively studying or thinking. Related to the prepiriform cortex and amygdala. Coordinates processing of information in different areas of the brain simultaneously.
38 Hz – Endorphin release.
40 Hz – Having efficient 40Hz activity creates a good memory also dominant in problem solving. Important for information and high-level information processing. A lack of this frequency can create learning disabilities.
40 Hz – 60 Hz – Can stimulate the release of beta-endorphins and give anxiolytic effects.
55 Hz – Tantric yoga which stimulates the “kundalini”.
62 Hz – Feeling of physical vigor.
72 Hz – The emotional spectrum.
40+ Hz – The higher gamma frequencies are less specific occurring over larger ranges and are mostly related to intelligence, problem solving, focus, memorization, concentration, etc. They can be looked at as an enhancement for a lot of the benefits of the beta frequencies.

108 – 111 HZ (The Holy or Ancient frequency)

Above is Hal-Saflieni in Malta. Along with this 4000 year old structure, we have New Grange (Ireland), Stonehenge (England), Pyramids of Giza (Eygpt), The Burial mounds of Cairns (Britain) and Chichen Itza (Central America) which all have been found to resonate at the frequency between 108 – 111 HZ. It is believed that these structures were intricately designed to purposely create the frequency of 110 Hz to effect the ancient humans who resided within them.

According to historical research, Pythagoras created his musical scale starting with an A note which resonates at the frequency of 111 Hz. In addition to this, MRI scans have indicated that the brain turns off the prefrontal cortex and results in a divine level of meditation at this frequency. This state of consciousness enables one to become connected with the universe, God or a creator. (Something known by our ancestors thousands of years ago) The frequency within the range of 108 – 111 Hz also seems to have benefits for mental and physical health.  Research is being continued into the benefits and understanding of the Ancient frequency. It appears that the more research that is done on this frequency, the more significant that it becomes.
