Binaural beats have been around a long time. First discovered in 1839. They became more popular in the late 20th century. The alternative medicine community learned that binaural beats would help with meditation, relaxation, and even creativity.
A popular use for binaural beats is to affect the subconscious mind. By putting yourself into a deep meditative state you can easily influence the subconscious mind by offering suggestions to it while in this deeply relaxed state.
The use of binaural beats can also be helpful in weight loss. The combination of deep relaxation and subconscious suggestions can help to encourage better eating habits and more exercise.
Some people also find that they are more productive when they listen to binaural beats. The combination of deep relaxation and creative thinking can lead to new ideas and solutions to old problems.
How do binaural beats work?
The way binaural beats work is that one tone is played in the left ear and another tone of a slightly different frequency is played into the right your. A third tone is created which is one you actually think you are listening to.
It’s like massaging your brain. It is completely safe of course as long as you don’t listen to them while you’re driving or operating heavy machinery (common sense right?)
The reason for that is you may fall asleep while listening to binaural beats.
If the program you are listening to is designed to put you to sleep then it’s completely acceptable to fall asleep and still get the full benefits from your session.
I personally listen to binaural beats before going to sleep every night, it puts me in a very relaxed state allowing me to sleep deeply and wake refreshed feeling great.
Any binaural beat program must be listened to with headphones otherwise you will not get any benefits from your program.
Binaural beat programs are designed around a certain frequency to induce a certain state in your mind and body, as you can see in the chart.
Subliminal binaural beats
Subliminal beats are sounds that are played below the threshold of hearing. When these beats are played, they can help to improve focus, creativity, and productivity
Some people may be skeptical about the effectiveness of subliminal binaural beats, but there is research to support their use.
One study found that adults who listened to subliminal binaural beats for five days were able to improve their focus and productivity.
If you are looking for a way to improve your focus and productivity, subliminal binaural beats may be a good option for you.

This article is very true and one of the best I have read.
Listening to Gamma waves (80 Hz) has made my life so much better and amazing, even when nothing has changed and that is because gamma waves allow you to be in the zone/flow state where you are more conscious about whatever it is you are doing.
Highly encourage people to experiment and see what they like best. I myself prefer gamma over alpha when it comes to focus, insight, clearity, innerpeace, compassion and peak performance.
Theta, however, is the king for reprogramming the subconscious mind since that’s when information goes directly into the subconscious, boosting the efficiency of subliminaIs and affirmations.
I sometimes come on here just to read your stuff, and these articles never disappoint or fail to exceed my expectations.
Wonderful article, Mike.
Well said… thanks for reading and the comment. 🙂
It is nice to see someone else that gets it.
I agree with the Theta waves, it is why we use them on most of our subliminals.
This article is one of the best articles I have ever read.
Congratulations to the author, I distributed the article to my friends. I want to be helpful and share how I got rid of sleep problems.
