Binaural Beats Heal, Induce Out-of-Body Experiences Research Shows

Binaural Beats Induce Out-of-body experience

New research suggests that using binaural beats to entrain your brain may not only heal but also induce out-of-body experiences.

Brainwave entrainment is a method of using pulsing sounds to stimulate the brain into entering a specific state. It has grown in popularity lately, evidenced by the increasing number of available brainwave entrainment recordings. Many such recordings are created using binaural beats; two tones with slightly different frequencies. Now, research is showing the healing benefits of listening to these binaural beats for both body and mind.

Karen Newell is an author and co-founder of Sacred Acoustics, a leading creator of brainwave entrainment audio recordings.

“Binaural beats are delivered by giving you one signal in one ear and a slightly different signal in the other ear, and the result is a wavering sound,” Newell said. 

“Binaural beats are effective in that they are affecting the brainwave state of the brain. So, our brains put out an electric signal (and) it’s measured with an EEG device with the names of Delta, Theta, Alpha — we’re used to hearing those words. Beta, that’s the state that we’re in when we’re walking and talking; that’s the state that really prevents us from getting into a quieter state of awareness. So, binaural beats are designed to bring us into those lower brainwave states, so help the brain get into a quieter state that’s associated with sleep, meditation, and focus.”

People experience a wide range of responses to binaural beats, from deep relaxation to enhanced intuition, lucid dreams, and even connection with the souls of departed loved ones.  Another fascinating effect increasingly reported to Newell and her team is the out-of-body experience.

“An out-of-body experience is where your awareness literally leaves your physical body,” Newell said. 

“It gives you that first-hand, personal direct experience that exists outside of your body that isn’t necessarily reliant on your body. Out-of-body experiences can happen incredibly spontaneously without anyone even realizing it. Other people will cultivate them very consciously, and I’ve had reports from sacred acoustics listeners who write to me and say that after about 18 months or so, of almost daily listening to our recordings, they’ve started to have these out-of-body experiences.”

What is it about these binaural beats that engender such experiences?

“The real sweet spot of binaural beats is that border between awake and asleep,” Newell said. “

“We’re all in this state, the hypnagogic state, every night as we’re falling asleep we go into this state, and every morning as we wake up. This is what binaural beats can do (it) can bring you into that state. This is where the body becomes extremely relaxed and the mind still stays awake and alert. That’s where you can start to make visualizations and imagine your body’s energy doing different things that can help to engender an out-of-body state. Anything that gets your mind off of the physical body is the mechanism for having your energetic body actually move away from it. You can also use that hypnagogic state to really reprogram your deep-seated belief system.”

For Newell and other proponents of brainwave entrainment, the implications of this kind of experience are profound.

“The real vision of sacred acoustics is to help people get in touch with their own infinite minds. Explore within, get behind those racing thoughts, find out who you truly are; the part of you that is your essence. We each can find out for ourselves that we are spiritual beings — a very important spiritual being that’s connected to the larger one mind, or one heart, one consciousness that connects us all. And as we find that connection we’re able to find real meaning and purpose in our lives,” Newell said.

Research Confirms Intention Affects Structure of Water Pt. 2

Intention Experiment Improves Stem Cell Growth

An exciting new study by a leading research institute suggests that mental intention can not only change the structure of water but may even help stem cells to grow. The study provides fascinating results with profound implications.

The Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) is a leader in the field of exploring mind-matter interactions. Its latest study is the culmination of a number of other experiments, all suggesting that the act of making an intention on water produces a measurable response.

Dr. Dean Radin is the chief scientist at IONS who led the study.

“In this experiment, as in previous studies, we asked three Buddhist monks in a temple in Taiwan, to focus their attention towards samples of water, with the intention that stem cells grown with that water as part of the growth medium would proliferate more,” Radin said. “And then we had control water — same company, same source — that was not part of the experiment which we set aside as a control. So then the water was used in a double-blind fashion by a technician who was growing the stem cells, to create growth media that these stem cells were put into. Then they simply measured, over three days, how much were the stem cells growing, and they also took other measures that are genetic expression factors showing the health of the stem cells.”

Researchers were astounded by the results.

“What we found was significant evidence that the stem cells proliferated more, (and) that the genes that were expressed were in alignment with the idea that they were actually healthier stem cells.”
