Using the Alpha Sound to help you center yourself
by Jose Silva
The alpha frequency has no sound. Alpha is 10 cps, and the hearing range of
human beings is no lower than 20 and no higher than 20,000. So alpha is
below the threshold of the human being.
How do we hear alpha, if we should call it the alpha sound?
Well, to get the same results, we took an audio generator, 600 cycles audio
generator, and interrupted the sound 10 times per second and recorded that.
It gives you the same effect.
It is very comparable to the output of the brain, when converted to sound,
to this sound, the alpha sound. Identical.
For instance, if we detect the alpha sound in microvolts, and convert it
into volts, and convert it into sound.
If we detect the energy in space, that was done, but is detected into
microvolts, this magnetic field fluctuating at 10 times per second, 2 or 3
microvolts, can be amplified to volts, same thing.
So then, the way the energy in space sounds, the way the brain frequency
sounds, we duplicated this with this audio generator, interrupted 10 sounds
per second. That's why we call it the alpha sound, even though alpha has no
We have to have constant rhythms. Your brain wants to lock in on every
impulse that it hears. Let's say, I fire a gun, brain impulse. Fire twice,
two impulses. Ten times, ten impulses. The brain responds to this.
So we have a generator causing a sound, constant sound, gradually decreasing
it, and the brain wants to follow it. That's the best way to do it.
Some want to play soft music in the background, and that's supposed to relax
you. That's physical, left brain, not slowing down the frequency of the
brain. Just relaxing your mind, not your brain, see?
You stay awake listening to music, you don't go to sleep. We want you to go
in the direction of going to sleep, but not go to sleep. It's a different
So there is relaxing music for the left brain. There is relaxing music for
the right brain.
The music of the left brain is more stimulated by the volume of sound. The
music of the right brain is stimulated more with the beauty of the music. It
can be barely heard, but you enjoy it tremendously. The other one is
addictive. You want more and more volume. That's why discotheques are
blowing out eardrums. They want more and more still, until they can't go any
louder any more. They want the whole brain to shake. That's music for the
Music is not a constant frequency, it is fluctuating. We don't want the
brain to be fluctuating back and forth and following the frequency of sound.
We want the brain to follow a constant frequency, decreasing. It is
monotonous. Slowing down.
But music...rushes all over the place. Frequency changing all the time. How
can they put the brain in where it goes?
You're not going to enter alpha with soft music. You have to have something
that the brain can follow.
