So, I didn’t make an attempt last week. Part of this was because I legitimately didn’t have the time, but most of it was because I completely lacked the mental energy. With people, including myself, having their future survival jeopardized, I didn’t have it in me to do a whole lot of inner goddess seeking.
Last time, I tried to channel my inner goddess using dance. It was fun, but ultimately inconclusive. Maybe I just need the right music. Or, in this case, no music at all.
This time, I’m going to try using binaural beats.
Binaural beats are two rhythms played slightly off-kilter, one rhythm to each ear. When your ears pick them up (via headphones), your brain attempts to make sense of them by filling in an extra pulse in between them. As you listen to the rhythms, your brainwaves begin to shift toward the frequency of the phantom pulses it’s creating.
I could go deeper into Rife frequencies, the Schumann’s resonance, and brainwave entrainment here, but I’d like to keep this part simple. I know I’ve mentioned brainwave entrainment before without going into much depth, but it’s a pretty enormous topic with a lot of different schools of thought.
One idea is that binaural beats are the key to good health, and can be fine-tuned to fix very specific health problems. I’m not sure if I agree with this, as there seems to be a lack of research supporting it. Another idea, with some research to support it, is that different brainwave frequencies correspond to different mental states and binaural beats may be able to help you “hack” your brainwaves and help you achieve these states. This is why I like using them for meditation, trancework, sleep, and relaxation. Depending on what I use, they can be like a cup or two of chamomile tea, or techno-witch flying ointment.
But can it help me channel my inner goddess? I’ve tried meditation before. I’ve even tried meditating with frequencies before. Maybe there are some specific ones I haven’t tried that can help me out here.
Alright, time to fire this up and see where it takes us!
Well, while soothing, I didn’t really experience anything different from the first time I attempted to channel my inner goddess through meditation. At least, not in the goddess department. I do have some conflicting feelings, though– on one hand, I feel like this period of relaxation is exactly what I needed. On the other, I’ve been really chafing against being still lately. I’m inclined to chalk that up to the same worries and desires for action that are going through a lot of people’s minds right now, but it might be cause for a deeper look. It certainly couldn’t hurt.
