Schumann Resonance

Ideal Music For Sleep & Meditation

Calm Radio’s latest free binaural sleep music channel addition incorporates many advanced techniques to help you sleep. One is the Schumann resonance, the low frequeny binaural Delta entrainment waves to slow down your brain activity. The Schumann Resonance channel has a steady musical ambience composed by Calm Radio’s founder, Eric Harry.

“In my quest to improve my sleep after jet lag, I listened to Schumann Resonance using headphones as I lay in bed. I was pleasantly amazed how nicely it allowed my mind to drift and not think. After 30 minutes, I removed the headphones and fell asleep for a steady 7 hours. That was like a miracle for me after experiencing jet lag for years.” — Eric Harry

We suggest to listen using headphones or earbuds on the Calm Radio app (mobile Calm app for Android or iOS). Try listening to this free sleep music for 30 minutes to one hour in preparation for sleep.

Available to both members and free listeners to listen to this relaxing meditation music channel for sleep.

What is the Schumann resonance frequency?

It is the extremely low 7.83 hertz electromagnetic tone frequency generated between the Earth and the ionosphere.

It is assumed that our bodies and our nervous systems are in their most optimal environment or state when experiencing this natural earth frequency. Many of us live in cities that have their own complex frequency spectrums which are not natural. Ideally, we need to disconnect from these typical city crowds, traffic noises, and restore using the planet’s most natural 7.83 hz frequency.

It just so happens that the Schumann resonance is also associated with alpha and theta brain wave states. These frequencies are important for increasing the levels of cerebral blood flow, HGH (human growth hormone), and other benefits. Also worth noting, the frequency has been associated with higher levels of hypnotizability, suggestibility, meditation, and therefore restoration of mind and body.

What are binaural beats?

Binaural beats use two sub-hearing frequencies that pulse slowly in a bottom layer of the music track. For instance, 0.1 to 4 hertz (Delta), 4 to 7 hertz (Theta), 7 to 13 hertz (Alpha) and 13 to 30 hertz (Beta).

Adding a binaural beat to a music track can help our brainwave frequencies align to the added binaural beat, which then can help sleep, relax, and slow down your heart rate, for example. Brainwaves are divided into four categories: Delta waves (deep sleep), Theta waves (somnolence and reduced consciousness), Alpha waves (physical and mental relaxation), and Beta waves (being agitated or tense).

When listening to binaural beat audio, it is recommended to use headphones for maximum benefit.
