Belief in a spirit guide is part of cultures throughout the world and throughout history. Many believe they're watched over by a benign figures such as the traditional guardian angel, whereas others see the spirit guide more as a wiser aspect of their own unconscious mind. However you choose to see it, getting in touch with your spirit guide can provide a valuable source of wisdom and insight which can be of great assistance in daily life.
In this article we'll take a look at an effective method of getting in touch with your spirit guide by using modern technology in the form of binaural beats.
What Are Binaural Beats?
Binaural beats are a form of brainwave entrainment technology. Brainwave entrainment basically involves exposure to a repetitive stimulus such as sound waves of specific frequencies. The brain has a natural tendency to match its own brainwave output to the frequencies of the sounds it's hearing; this is called the ‘frequency following response'. This is very useful, because different brainwave frequencies are linked with different states of consciousness.
Binaural beats of the most widely available and popular form of brainwave technology. They've been thoroughly studied and can be very effective for various purposes. When you listen to a binaural beat recording, you hear two different frequencies, with one entering through each ear (this is why it's necessary to use headphones were listening to a binaural recording).
The brain processes these two sounds, and creates a pulse (or beat) which repeats rapidly, at a rate equal to the frequency difference between the pitches of the initial two tones. For example, if you listen to sounds with frequencies of 410 and 420 Hz, your brain will produce a 10 Hz beat. It is this self-produced pulse that the brain synchronises with.
Using Binaural Beat Meditation To Contact Your Spirit Guide
So how does this help you to get in touch with your spirit guide? Binaural beats are useful, because good-quality binaural recording can help you become deeply relaxed and quieten your mind. And it is when the mind is deeply relaxed and you enter a trance state, that you're most open to guidance from within.
Normally people aren't aware of the presence of their spirit guides or their intuitive guidance because the chatter of their conscious everyday thoughts is simply distracting. But by learning to achieve a deep meditative state, you become much more aware of what's going on ‘in the background', so to speak, and these intuitive messages become much clearer and easier to perceive.
The problem is that most people find it difficult to quiet in their mind sufficiently, which is really unsurprising because as a culture we in the west don't place much value on meditation or mind control skills. Fortunately however, with a good-quality binaural beat recording, you don't have to be a skilled meditator in order to bring your mind under control and access your inner guidance. Since the recording helps your brain to relax more quickly and easily than it would using traditional meditation techniques, you may be able to contact your spirit guide without having to spend years learning to meditate first.
The best way to use such a recording is to set aside some time each day, and commit to listening to it regularly. It's vital to listen in a quiet place where you won't be disturbed, and it's also important to be consistent, because as with anything else, the use of binaural beat meditation becomes easier and more effective with practice. In time, you'll become so used to entering the necessary state of profound relaxation, that you'll be able to do so even without listening the recording, and at that point you'll be able to contact your spirit guide at any time you want.
