Gina Lorenzo has a Bachelors Degree in Composition from Berklee College of Music and has been practicing/teaching Yoga & Meditiation classes for 20+ years.
This latest meditiation CD adds the concept of whole brain synchonization and the use of binaural beats.
A binaural beat is created when two different frequencies are sent separately to each ear (i.e., 400Hz in the left and 405Hz in the right). It is believed that the brain then creates its own, third, frequency of 5Hz (the difference between the two) causing both hemispheres of the brain to become synchronized and work more efficiently as a whole, thus the term “whole brain synchronization”.
Furthermore, various institutions have done research which
suggests that the brain may “tune in” to the frequency of the binaural beats that are introduced, thereby creating the same “state of mind” as suggested by the brain wave pattern ( i.e., Alpha - a relaxed, focused state).
Track 1 - Insight moves you from Beta (cognitive state)
to Alpha (more relaxed state)
Track 2 - Introspection leads you through all 4 brain wave
patterns beginning with Beta. This track is
great for inducing deep sleep as it brings you
Track 3 - Intuition takes you from Delta (deep, trance
-like state) up to Theta (a dreaming, super-
learning state) and then up once again to Alpha.
The binaural beats are masked with rain, ocean and other relaxing sounds. To get the most from this CD you should use headphones. However, if you use the CD without headphones, you will still feel relaxed but will not get the full benefits of the brain wave patterns.
To begin, close your eyes and breathe deeply. You don’t have to clear your mind, however, you can begin focusing by using 2 or 3 simple affirmations such as; “I am healthy and feel full of energy”. Stay away from negative words such as “won’t” or “not”. For example, “I will not eat bad foods”. Instead, say; “I will eat healthy foods”
