After making sure you will be undisturbed for the next 30 minutes or so, you settle in your favourite meditation posture – on your mat or cushion – close your eyes and…..nothing!
Your mind keeps buzzing noise for almost all the length of the session. Jittery thought fragments, ‘mind popup notifications’ of things left undone and other God-knows-what mental clutter streaming up the corridors of your conscious mind. But hey, that’s normal. It happens to me, you and people who have been meditating for the past few decades.
I do have those days when no matter how good my intent to meditate is, I just feel there is more mental noise to wade through than normal. That’s where I discovered and started using meditation music or more technically, Binaural beats or brain wave entrainment.
Sound Waves & Brain Waves:
Through various studies about the brain, it had been discovered that different mental states or levels of activity produce different frequencies or waves.
