How to Get “High” Without Drugs

headphone_meditationBinaural Beats are the products of two different sounds in harmony; they produce sounds that are only heard by the brain. The effect of this can be quite calming, relaxing and meditative. There are many different types of binaural beats that can suit your specific mood and also help with various ailments. Many people have said that if you are someone who generally has trouble with quieting the mind and meditation (like me), then binaural beats are likely to have a greater affect on your overall ability to reach the higher frequency states. Furthermore, studies have shown that these beats can assist with mental clarity, more focused thought patterns, increased energy, heightened creativity and many more positive changes for your overall wellbeing.

Physicist Heinrich Wilhem Dove first discovered binaural beats in 1839. He published his findings in his book Repertorium der Physik. Through his research he found that when you present two different frequencies separately, one to each ear, your brain can detect the phase discrepancy between the two frequencies and it tries to reconcile that difference. Until 1973, little research was done on the affects of binaural beats and the brain until Gerald Oster, a biophysicist, presented a paper in The Scientific American. His paper sparked further interest and research into the study of binaural beats. He stated that:

“The measurement of binaural beats can explain the processes by which sounds are located — a crucial aspect of perception. It is possible that hormonally induced physiological behavior changes may be made apparent by measuring the binaural-beat spectrum”.

How to Use Binaural Beats

Now that we have learned about some of the benefits and history of binaural beats, it’s time we learned how to use them. First off, I think that it is important to set your intention as to what you hope to achieve out of your experimentation with the beats. Are you looking to relieve stress or anxiety? Achieve more focused thought patterns? Clear your head and tune into your inner voice or higher self, or do you just want to try it out and see what comes of it? That is fine too, and will probably still provide some sort of benefit.

The Finer Details

It is important to note that you need to have a pair of stereo headphones, particularly good quality ones that can pick up low frequencies and sounds. Then you can get yourself into a comfortable position either sitting or laying down. If you are practicing during the day, it may be beneficial to use an eye mask as well. Then you can begin your binaural beats track, start off by focusing on your breathing, and breathe deeply. Listen to the sounds. If any thoughts come into your head, just don’t give any focus to them, and be conscious to not get angry or frustrated, just let them pass by.

You should make sure to pick a track that is AT LEAST 15 minutes long because the brain requires 7 minutes to fall in synch with the audio frequencies. Be patient with this practice, it can take a few tries before you start to reap the benefits or notice any changes at all in your mental states. Once you do, you may notice you can achieve states that can be similar to states people reach while on certain drugs. Perhaps this is where binaural beats got their nickname as “Digital Drugs.” These beats can certainly put you into very relaxed states and it is recommended that you don’t drive while listening for this exact purpose.

I personally, have experienced states of complete euphoria and bliss, and feelings of ultimate connectedness to Source. If I had to compare it to a drug I would say that these beats could be similar to that of the effects I have experienced while taking psilocybin or “magic mushrooms.”  Of course these states can vary greatly between each person, so make sure to drop your expectations to certain outcomes. These states can ultimately be achieved with regular meditation as well. Be at peace with whatever experience you manifest for yourself at that time.

There are many different types of beats that claim to produce different types of effects, some you can buy, but there are a lot of beats that you can find for free via YouTube or other websites. There is also free software available that allows you to make your own. Check that out HERE. Find ones that best suit you and your intention.

I have been enjoying this one, and have yet to try too many others.

  7. This music is in 440 Hz tuning. It doesn’t matter whether it’s meditational, classical, rock, or anything, the fact that it is in 440 Hz (as has been the standard since the mid 1930′s) this music causes dissociation and dissonance, not resonance. Thus instead of assisting you to be here and now and to ground and cleanse you — which is what music used to do before the 30′s — now this music takes you into an alternate reality, drains you of energy, and spits you out when it’s done. Did you ever pay attention to your state of being after going to a concert or after listening to an album? Do you feel energized or drained? You’re suppose to feel energized as that is the effect that music has in its natural state. For example, natural wooden instruments that you’ll see natives play around the world are playing in 432 Hz, which is also why they have healing properties. That is the music that heals because its earth resonance is in sync with the human bio-energetic system.

    Converting to 440 Hz tuning was done on purpose via the Nazi regime and became a world standard since then. Feel free to look this up yourself if you feel that what I’m saying sound completely out of this world :-) Even better, try it out for yourself. Here is the same track but in 432 Hz natural tuning Do you feel a difference? Play one track in 440 Hz and then in 432 Hz. How do you feel? Pay attention to your state of mind. Is it easier to keep focus when listening to 440 Hz or to 432 Hz? There is pure science and mind manipulation behind this, and it’s not the simplest concept to understand — which is why this is one of the most well kept control tools that is right in front of our faces every day.

    I convert all of the music that I listen to into 432 Hz. Since doing this, I see how much of an influence 440 Hz music has, as I’ve became much more sensitive to what it does. It’s like becoming a Raw Vegan after eating cooked, processed food and meat your whole life. You feel and know the difference, but it’s a difference that you can only experience. It cannot be explained.

    If anyone is interested to know how they can convert their music to 432 Hz, let me know.

    • Astonishing! I couldn’t bear but 4 seconds of the video above. It made me extremely uncomfortable, but the link you provided made me instantly vibrate from head to toe. Now, I have to look into this more!

      • Hi Hugh! Amazing, isn’t it?

        This is the article that first got me exposed to this information following a hunch that I had to search for it on the internet: I don’t agree with everything in this article; especially, I don’t agree with the article’s take on 444 Hz since I know 444 Hz to be something quite different and of the synthetic realm simply based on my experience with listening to that tuning, feeling what it does, and with knowledge that came to me as a result. However, everything else in that article is quite interesting and eye opening.

    • Sarah

      @Dennis, yes very interested. It would amazing to know how to do this for any and all yoga classes be it an amped up Flow class, or a Restorative one

      • Hi Sarah! I actually converted a whole bunch of music for a friend of mine that taught a yoga class. She really loved it. I’m in the process of creating an instructional video on how to do this and will place it on the same channel that that video is on. That is my channel.

        A short summary on how to convert this:

        (1) You need to get a guitar tuner. This is the one that I have and use: The reason for this is that you first need to find out in which tuning the original track in is. About 99% of the ones that I’ve come upon are in 432 Hz; however, some tracks are in 444 Hz [synthetic heart point -- a whole another topic :-) ] and I would then convert from 444 Hz to 432 Hz. The only time I’ve stumbled upon 444 Hz is when listening to some meditational/spiritual tracks, so this would be relevant to what you need in case you have some tracks that are tuned to this frequency.

        (2) Once you figure out in what frequency the original track is in, get Adobe Audition audio software and convert it to 432 Hz. I’ve tried to do this in three programs and this is the best one. There is a free one Audacity out there; however, it does a poor job at this conversion, so I’d stay away from it. Adobe Audition does a seamless job at converting it with no quality loss as a result. The track you were listening to is an example of the conversion that I did.

        (3) After that you got your track converted. I then suggest normalizing it to make that the sound levels are all fine. Then just save it and you’re done!

        Also, I can convert tracks for you as well. I don’t charge anything for the work; however, I accept donations. So if you want to test this out, just send me some tracks, and I’ll convert them. Send them to

        My purpose is to spread this information and to help people experience this, so thank you for doing your part! :-)

    • Connie Robinson

      I am interested in converting music to 432 Hz. thank you for your offer!

    • Do you have to trained or a musician to be able to convert music to 432.? ALso, is there a site that offers that music already converted which we can download?

      • Converting music to the A=432hz tuning is pretty simple with an audio editing program. You don’t have to be a trained musician to do it. Here’s a tutorial on how to do it

    • Franky

      I have done enough research to say i agree. Please show me how to convert music from 440 Hz to 432 Hz.

      • Hi Franky! That’s great to know that you’ve done the research! I suggest taking a look at this tutorial to see how to do the conversion

    • sandra hammond

      ok… how do you do it

      sandra hammond

    • Danielle

      Hi Dennis! I would love to know how to convert music to 432 Hz! Will you share it with me, how?
      / Danielle

    • Thank you Dennis for taking the trouble to point out the difference between 440hz and 432hz and for advising on this track – much appreciated as it explains why I have never been able to listen to binaural beats over the years. I really enjoyed the 432hz version on youtube however.

      • Hi Rita! Thank you for your feedback! It’s great to hear stories like yours, as it tells me how the world is changing and how many of us are becoming aware of something we’ve been made to forget.

  8. I think this specific type of music is similar to ‘Ambient’. Now I know why I really enjoy this genre.
    Thank you very much

    I’ve been doing this for months now. It’s such a great experience. :)

    In other words, get into the now….

    This specific video clip had an effect on me from the very first time and I didn’t even watch the visual the whole time. Further to @Tibanu’s comments – the clip in NOT in mp3 format which might explain why it had an effect on me…. And for the comments regarding tubes vs processors – this is bollocks, you can play these sounds through your PC and you will not loose any frequencies.

  13. Lukas

    It’s very interesting, although you might consider theargument tibanu MAximus gave below.
    But for me the problem is that drugs are not only unadvisable because of their negative effect on the body and mental health but also because the state of consciousness that you achieve by using them is artificial. Means that you are not trained or enabled to induce that state by your own. With the sistem described in the article it’s the same: it’s nice to have this access to relaxation which seems not to be harmful but in the long term you will not have more control of your mind, I think. It might be better to train your mind so can change your state of consciousness and control your emotions when ever you need to , without the need of any device or substance:
    Conclusion: practice meditation on a regular basis! :-)

  14. This is great. It worked in my case, at least. Most time it is just relaxing, but at certain moments I felt an awesome sensation, even after turning the sound off. Thanks a lot for sharing this!

  15. This does work. It’s not “getting high” at all, however. Most of the naysayers above have probably not given it a good shot. It induces a resonance with different different frequencies, and these offset beats make it easier for you to tune in. Just like tweaking those old-fashioned radio dials that tune in different frequencies, with static in-between.

  16. tibanu MAximus

    hello to all.
    I have to point out 2 major flaw in all this.

    one it is about the nature of sound how sound encoding takes place.
    you need to have profesinoal recording and encoding devices to achieve the sound fidelity required in the experiments.
    mp3 formats compression works by reducing accuracy of certain parts of sound that are considered to be beyond the auditory resolution ability of most people. This method is commonly referred to as perceptual coding. It uses psychoacoustic models to discard or reduce precision of components less audible to human hearing, and then records the remaining information in an efficient manner.

    It means that even with the best headphone in the world you wont be able to “hear” the sounds because they are not even there in your track in the first place due to encoding processes.

    Lets say you have the sound recorded. you need a hi-fi play back device like (Marriolla) that uses electron tubes and does not use “processors” to play back the sound (like your computer or mp3 player)

    second is regarded with the brain activity and frequency.
    the author says”then binaural beats are likely to have a greater affect on your overall ability to reach the higher frequency states.” actually is the other way around. you need to lower your brain wave frequency form 13 to 7 Hz or even to 4Hz if possible. The brain wave frequency increases with stress and activity. the lower you get the more relaxed you are.

    peace to all

    • Thanks, Tibanu! At least, NOW, I know why my son said this was all…”BUNK!” As it doesn’t work through this media! OR, in the way it describes!

    • Lukas

      ya good point, so the effects people experience might just be placebo or because of the fact that the recommendaton given above (to breath camly and concentrate in your breath, let thoughts go by) is actually an instruction for meditation. so you will calm down by the meditation itself and not because of the sound. But as to the brain frequencies I think I’ve read that they can be uite different depending on the form of meditation. Some people exhibit extremely high frequencies,I guess it depends on the technique you use and the kind of state that you are seeking

  17. hey, this was a really astonishing thing that i got to know here. you are surely doing a great job; evolving collectively. could you please tell me from where i can download the best binaural beats, also the software link that you have put there is expired. really looking forward to making some of my own. :P

  18. kristine

    The link to make your own beats at doesn’t work. Any other recommendations?

  19. Corinne Amora

    its very relaxing – makes my happy :)
