Delta brain waves are the slowest brain waves that the human mind generates, and they occur at frequencies of 4 Hz or less.
Delta brainwaves dominate during deep sleep. It is during this deepest state of complete relaxation that your body heals itself, and resets its internal clock.
The delta state is a dreamless, completely unconscious sleep state that allows your body and brain to rest and repair. Without it, you could not survive!
When You Snooze, You Win
By listening to sleep music that contains delta frequency binaural beats, you can stimulate the production of delta frequencies in your brain. This is one of the most effective ways to encourage your mind to release itself from the overactive waking state and enter into the sleep state.
The beauty of specialized music to promote sleep is that it works on two levels. First of all, the music itself gives your mind something to occupy itself with, so that you are less inclined to continue mulling over troublesome thoughts. Secondly, the binaural beats have a direct effect on your brain activity, gradually increasing the intensity of delta brain wave activity until…zzzzzzzzzzzz…
Some people report that when they listen to this type of music and sounds, the transition from being awake to sleeping is a gradual process that starts with a feeling of light headedness, and a sense of deepening relaxation. For others, especially those who are particularly susceptible to binaural beats, the transition to sleep is sudden and powerful:
“I don’t remember even starting to fall asleep. I was just listening and wondering if it was working, and then all of a sudden it was morning and I’d been asleep for hours”.
Sleep music that includes delta frequencies is not only a powerful and effective sleep aid, it’s also a wonderful natural alternative to some of the rather addictive drugs that are commonly prescribed for curing insomnia and stress.
Try it yourself. Press the play button on the 1 hour sound track of delta wave music and sounds below. Use an external speaker or a headset for best results. Make sure to adjust the sound on your computer until you feel perfectly comfortable with the volume. Let delta wave music and sounds help you sleep, relax or meditate — or to simply slow your brain activity down and unwind from stressful or over-active thoughts.
