Being Kind, Daily Meditation & Slowing Brainwaves Can Restore Fountain of Youth!
You heard correctly! A simple act of kindness along with small lifestyle changes can add up to 10 years to most people’s lives. Studies show aging is composed of 10% genetics and 90% is lifestyle choices! Implementing simple daily practices to shed stress and boosting relaxation can have a massive impact on not only how you age but how long you live.
Scientists have discovered that the longest nerve in the body (vagus) can be stimulated with Acts of Kindness and Compassion! Recent studies also show inflammation as a primary cause of aging. Serving as a ‘brake’ on inflammation in the body.
Listening to binaural beats is a great holistic way to improve your health and overcome a variety of ailments, as well as restoring your fountain of youth! Looking better and feeling better has never been easier! Binaural beats work by balancing our brain hemispheres as well as balancing our nervous system and energy system. When the two hemispheres of our brain are synchronized with each other – “unlocked and unused” potential and resources in our subconscious mind (connected to the right hemisphere) becomes awakened in this synchronization.
Important: To experience the full benefit from audio with binaural beats you have to use headphones. Headphones allow you to hear the various pitches in left or right ear!
Delta Brainwaves 0.1Hz – 3.5Hz
Delta brainwaves are commonly associated with the deepest sleep and a state of unconscious awareness: ranging from 0–4 cycles per second. One of the associated benefits of increasing your delta brainwaves is the release of two powerful anti-aging hormones - melatonin and DHEA. The delta brainwaves are also associated with decreased levels of cortisol – a hormone linked to stress that has been scientifically proven to speed up the aging process.
We only access delta waves when we are in a deep sleep. Delta is the place of deepest relaxation, deepest healing, deepest spiritual connection and deepest connection with the subconscious mind. It is considered to be the gateway to the unconscious mind and the collective unconscious, bringing access to the universal intelligence. In healthy amounts, delta brainwaves can also cause a person to have an advanced state of empathy, understanding, and compassion for others.
Delta waves are associated with:
Release of Anti-Aging Hormones
Decrease cortisol (stress hormone associated with illness)
One may experience deep bliss in delta meditations
Healing physical injuries
Restore and reinvigorate prana (life energy)
Boosting immune system
Deeper connection to self
Releasing Human growth hormone (H.G.H, responsible for bone, muscle and body growth)
Deep relaxation of body and mind (as in REM sleep)
Revitalising the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual Aura
Enhances life quality
Inner peace & balance
Beta Brainwaves 14Hz – 40Hz
When we are wide awake, alert, active and engaged in mental activity that usually involves the rational, logic, reality-oriented left hemisphere of our brain – Then we
are in Beta state. When beta wave activity becomes very intense, our brain hemispheres become less synchronized. We become stressed and anxious. A majority of adults operate at Beta. Beta waves are however important as we also need to function in everyday life.
Beta waves are associated with:
This is the brainwave for the fight-flight response
Increased concentration and alertness
Improved logic, reasoning, and critical thinking
Feelings of anxiety
Feelings of stress
Alpha Brainwaves 7.5Hz – 14Hz
Alpha state is generated when we are daydreaming, reading a book, meditating, relaxing deeply, listen to music, being engaged in a movie, driving our car on automatic without consciously driving. We also experience Alpha Brainwaves when we are gently busy with routine tasks.The state of hypnosis is an Alpha state. The voice of Alpha is your intuition, which becomes more apparent and more profound the closer you get to 7.5Hz. It is the perfect state to be in when listening to affirmations or/ visualizing, as the subconscious mind is much more receptive to programming.
Alpha waves are associated with:
Alleviates stress and depression (our system produce more serotonin)
Reduces chronic pain
Reduction of high blood pressure
Increases performance (sports, creative work, studying, etc.)
Reduces worries and overthinking
Theta Brainwaves 35Hz – 8Hz
Research has proven that thirty minutes a day of Theta meditation will dramatically improve a person’s overall health and well-being. It can produce a sense of deep spiritual connection and unity with the universe. In this state, you can experience vivid visualizations, great inspiration, profound creativity and exceptional insight. It is a state where our subconscious is very open for reprogramming of old patterns and habits. It's a hypnotic and meditative state (these are the same). Right before you doze off to sleep and right after you wake up is the theta state. In Theta our brain hemispheres are synchronized, and we experience whole brain functioning.
Theta waves are associated with:
Increased sense of inner peace and emotional stability
Heightened intuition and inspiration
Calms the chatter of your mind
Increased psychic abilities and sense of spiritual connection
Speed healing improved physical healing
More restful sleep
Release beneficial hormones related to health and longevity
Reduce mental fatigue
Reduction of anxiety and stress
Binaural beats efficiently entrain and synchronize your brainwaves to enhance any specific brainwave pattern. This allows you to rapidly enter states of relaxation, focus, high-energy, or meditation whenever you want. According to neuroscientists, the effect of decreasing the brain rhythm from beta to alpha via deep relaxation techniques or the use of binaural beats brain entrainment changes the levels of certain beneficial brain chemicals.
Below are some samples of the different binaural beats you may use for meditation. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us! Happy Meditating!
Remember, one of the most important elements of meditation is to practice love and kindness to others!
