In my latest search for some new brainwave meditation music, I came across a website called BinauralBeatsMeditation.com, which I can’t believe I haven’t found before.
The company has been online since 2009 and currently sells a catalogue of 12 30-minute meditations that target specific life areas.
I actually appreciate the fact that the catalogue is broken down honestly into feasible benefits of meditation, rather than having hundreds of recordings that claim to do all sorts from weight loss to getting rich, as some other sites purport.
I bought the Mega Pack consisting of 12 meditations because it was by far the best deal; I also envisioned myself going back for more and my wife complaining that I should have bought the discount pack to begin with and stop wasting money!
You can however buy the meditations individually (creating your own pack) and in 4 other readymade packs (5 including the Mega Meditation Pack that I bought)
Mega Meditation Pack:
– All 14 audios.
Mindfulness Meditation Pack:
– Zen Focus / Deep Meditation / Anxiety Release / Spiritual Awakening / Creativity Boost / Chill Pill /Astral Projection.
– Deep Meditation / Anxiety Release / Chill Pill/ Zen Focus / Spiritual Awakening.
– Anxiety Release / Deep Sleep / Energy Express / Chill Pill / Chakra Healing.
Mind Master Pack:
– Creativity Boost / Super Brain Power / Zen Focus / Positive Thinking.
The audios have an excellent sound quality because they are produced by professional sound engineers, and do not contain any hypnosis or subliminal messages for anyone worried about being brainwashed :).
A single meditation costs $9.99 and lasts for 30 minutes. The multipacks range from $19.99 – 59.99, with the best value pack being the Mega Meditation Pack which costs $59.99.
Also bundled in with any purchase is a cool guide that explains the history, the science and best-practice for using the meditations.
* I should also mention that if you create your pack and buy individually you save $5 for every meditation added to the cart.
Here’s What You Get For Your Money:
1. Zen Focus: accompanied by beautiful meditation music that really puts you in a super-focussed mode.
2. Super Brain Power : very powerful > be prepared to become very alert > awesome for long working hours.
3. Deep Meditation: Nicely centers the mind for a heightened state of mindfulness. I use this before work sometimes (when I’m up early enough!).
4. Spiritual Awakening: Quite trippy, opens the 3rd eye and takes you into a state of spiritual meditation.
5. Chill Pill: Really perks you up this one, but in a happy go lucky, almost stoned, dare I say, way!
6. Creativity Boost: Different vibe to anything I’ve used before, really inspires new thought processes: cool for writers and artists.
7. Optimum Sleep: Works well. I sleep pretty well these days but use this when I am having one of those “overactive mind” evenings but know I need to sleep because I have work early the next day.
8. Energy Express: A real supercharger. Good for about 4-6 hours alertness on very tired – or hungover – days.
9. Astral Projection: A very trippy ride on the Astral Plane. Be warned, it does take some practice to get there but when you do expect some very strange but interesting visuals. An Astral Projection guide is provided to get you on your way.
10. Anxiety Release: My wife loves this! She’s suffered from anxiety and low self-esteem in the past and really loves the way this meditation puts her in a calm, assertive place.
The BinauralBeatsMeditation.com website is user-friendly, and unlike many vendors they include previews of all the meditations on-site >> I hate it when I can’t listen before I buy!
There is also a free 10-minute download of their Zen Focus meditation available on the site if you subscribe first.
I spoke to customer service twice over email before buying, and they came back to me within a couple of hours (on a Saturday).
The guy who answered me, James, definitely knew what he was talking about, which was reassuring. Check out their the blog for some good reads on brain entrainment and meditation, too.
In short, you can tell these aren’t white label guys. The recordings are made in-house and market-tested before release, which certainly shows in their effectiveness.
Value For Money
Each meditation is available for $9.99 separately. You can also create your own pack using the cart or you can buy a readymade pack, as described above. Customer service is fast, and further support is provided via an extensive FAQ.
- High quality meditations (256 kbps mp3s).
- Targeted meditations for core life areas.
- Free user guide with meditations.
- Powerful stuff! Expect to feel changes within a few minutes and life improvements within a few listenings.
- Very good value for money compared with competitors.
- Solid customer service from knowledgeable guys.
- 60-day money back guarantee.
- I would like to see a Lucid Dreaming and Chakra meditation added to the catalogue at some point. This would, without a doubt, then make this the best package on the market. (update: there is now a Chakra Healing meditation).
I am really getting a lot from the Mega Meditation Pack, as much if not more than I have done in the past from other products like Holosync.
Part of this is likely to be down to having new recordings to experiment with; but also I think because brain entrainment is getting more advanced, with younger, more enthusiastic engineers pushing the boundaries with new technology and research.
If I had to pick my favorite recordings I’d say Deep Meditation for its amazing natural ambience soundtrack, and Creativity Boost because I haven’t used anything quite like it before. Zen Focus is also very cool for those afternoons at work where you need to knuckle down and get stuff done.
It puts you in a very mellow but totally zoned in place, which I describe as spiritual productivity. Creativity Boost is great for everything from language learning to cooking; it gets the innovation and ideas flowing.
I hope BinauralBeatsMeditation.com produces more stuff over the next year, and I will certainly buy again if they do. This company definitely have my seal of approval.
