About Mialuna Life
Mialuna Life is an ensemble that performs live sound healing for yoga, meditation, and holistic events utilizing a range of acoustic instruments and electronic audio techniques such as binaural beats.
Mialuna Life also produces therapeutic musical recordings using binaural beats and guided meditations that aim to help individuals with general relaxation and specific goals such as sleep and stress-relief. The downloads are designed to entrain the listener through a unique binaural beat algorithm that includes additional musical and guided imagery elements for behavioral change. The recorded audio offers users repeated usage within the comfort of their desired environment.
Research shows that binaural beating can be used as a tool to induce brainwave activity that is associated with certain states of consciousness, such as meditative or sleep states. Binaural beats are made of two pure sine wave tones, one in each ear, with similar but different frequencies. The difference between the two frequencies creates a "beat" that sounds like a tremolo. Binaural beats should be listened to with headphones so that the tremolo only exists in the listener's brain rather than the room. It is proven that, given the right circumstances, a listener's brainwaves will synchronize to this phantom tremolo. This auditory phenomenon is called the frequency-following response, which involves the entrainment of brainwaves. Entrainment is the synchronization of the brain’s electrical activity to external stimuli, exemplified in the frequency-following response, which can be measured with an electroencephalogram (EEG). If used properly, binaural beating can entrain a listener’s brainwaves from an Alpha to a Delta state quickly. This is due to hemisphere synchronization that occurs in the brain while listening to binaural beats.
Guided meditation with the use of guided imagery has been widely used as a means of enhancing self-confidence, freedom from stress, and peace of mind. The more vivid the image suggested, by making use of as many senses as possible, the more likely the mind is to interpret these images as the actual stimulus situation. The use of sound, combined with visual, kinesthetic, and emotive suggestions, offers significant physical as well as mental health benefits . To make imagery as real as possible, suggestions referring to multiple senses must be utilized. Guided Imagery is one of the most effective ways to allow positive suggestion to enter the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is where we store patterns of behavior and belief that we have formed over time about ourselves, our future, and the world around us. Our subconscious mind is most open to suggestions of personal empowerment, positive thinking, personal transformation, relaxation, creativity and ideal future performance when we are in a state of deep relaxation. This is why guided meditation is sometimes more effective as a transforming practice than meditation alone.
