It’s hard to convey how binaural beats work without actually listening to them yourself so I am going to give you my story on how binaural beats have helped shape my life. I first discovered binaural beats back in 1996 when I heard a CD I borrowed from a friend. I had a lot going in my life at that time and was looking for a way to relax. I had tried meditation and had even gone to the introductory lesson on transcendental meditation, that’s how committed I was to learning to relax more. I didn’t sign up for the full classes for TM as I thought it was a bit of a rip off and I didn’t really bond with the instructor. So I tried these binaural beats as a way to relax. I was also smoking hash quite a bit as a way to relax and as a way to altered states of mind, but found I couldn’t really function when smoking hash although I liked the altered states I would go into with hash.
Within a few days I was starting to notice a marked difference in my ability to stay calm in stressful situations. I also noticed I was getting a better nights sleep and was more refreshed in the mornings. I listened to the CD in the morning and again in the evening. I began cutting down on the amount I was smoking.
I then had the confidence to sign up for a degree course in psychology in 2007.
I listened to them for a few months and I was feeling great, my confidence was very high, my demeanor had changed from a bit manic to calm and relaxed and friends and family were starting to notice. I had stopped listening to the CD and was still smoking hash when it became apparent that I would not finish the course if I continued smoking and looked again at binaural beats as a way to relax and stop smoking hash altogether. I stopped smoking around late 1998 and used binaural beats as a way to reach altered states and go to that creative place in my mind to write my essays for the degree course.
It was around this time I became interested in Lucid dreaming and astral projection and found out as much as I could about the brainwave patterns of lucid dreamers. I even wrote a paper on lucid dreaming as part of my degree in psychology. I found out the brainwave patterns of lucid dreamers and wanted to emulate them so I could have lucid dreams myself. It was binaural beats that was to help me have my first lucid dream and all my subsequent lucid dreams. I remember the feeling of exhilaration after my first lucid dream and I loved it and practiced lucid dreaming with the help of binaural beats for a few years. I then tried Astral projection and had a few out of body experiences but nothing to write home about.
Fast forward a few years and I had stopped using binaural beats as my life was going well although I was still interested in them from an academic point of view and still did a lot of research. I had gained my degree and had been bitten by the research bug, I love doing research.
In 2005 I came back to binaural beats after having found some great downloads and some great software to create my own binaural sounds. I experimented for a few years and eventually had a great collection of downloads which I used for myself to help with relaxation, creativity, energy and to help me study. I gave a loan of my creations to a few friends and family and they loved them and advised I should market them. I never did but continue to used them myself and give them out.
Then in 2007 I bought a few downloads from the net and was shocked at the bad quality of binaural beats that were out there, it was very hit and miss whether I was going to get a good one or not. That’s when I decided to market my own creations and 2008 has seen me release 3 products with more on the way.
