You may have seen or heard about meditation machines in the news or perhaps while online, but what does a meditation machine consist of and how do they actually work? Have a look at what all the fuss is about here. This introduction to meditation machines and how they use light and sound to achieve a number of different results for those who use them is the perfect starting point.
What Are Meditation Machines
Meditation machines are devices that help you meditate. Usually, they are small and portable devices that are easy to transport. Most available meditation machine sets will include headphones and glasses that present audio and visual inspirations to the wearer. You might not be paying attention to them initially. However, your brain will start to follow these visual and audio prompts subconsciously. Meditation machines effectively slow down a person’s brain waves. This assists dramatically with meditation. Meditation machines make it possible to be able to experience calmness and relaxation or achieve increased focus or relaxation if you choose to.
At Meditations UK we stock five different types of meditation machine. Each of these is geared towards achieving different results for the user. We’ll also be able to give you advice about choosing the right meditation machine for you. We also offer courses to use in conjunction with them. We’d recommend getting in touch with one of our friendly team so we can ensure that you choose the right device for your specific results. For example, the Kasina meditation machine has a “Night Voyage” setting that is perfect for people who are battling insomnia. In contrast the “Accelerate” function aids with concentration, focus and peak performance.
How does a Meditation Machine work?
Meditation Machines use an advanced mixture of audio and visual technology. Using light and sound they guide your mind and body gently into a deeply relaxed state. A series of flickering lights in varying frequencies and colours combined with specialised sounds are used to guide the brain into a variety of states. The states range from intense focus to calming meditation.
You’ll hear specialised tones and pulses through the headphones, known as “binaural and isochronic” beats. These tones are proven to be very helpful for leading the brain into more relaxed states.
The lights in the glasses will begin to flicker at the same frequency as the audio tones that are being heard through the headphones.
The pulses of light and sound are quite fast to begin with. Your brain which ticks over quickly at a normal level of consciousness, needs to be engaged by them. Progressively, the pulses slow down, and your brain follows suit and slows down in time with them.
The imagery created by the light and sound focuses your mind and silences any internal dialogue. Your brain’s various areas gradually start to work in unison to lead you into a meditative state identical to that of masters of meditation.
Different types of sessions on Meditation Machines?
Meditation Machines have an assortment of different types of sessions built into them each with a different purpose. There are programmes for relaxation, meditation, sleeping, stimulation and creative visualisation. The light patterns and sounds in each session differ so that you are able to achieve the results you are after. As a result, the patterns for relaxation and stimulation differ significantly from each other. Similarly, the light and sound patterns that are used for meditation are much slower and gradual than those used in programmes which are used for focus.
Some meditation machines, such as the MindSpa, have glasses that allow you to see through their lenses so that they are suitable to be worn while working or studying. As a result, this has been shown to be an effective study aid and can make focusing on tasks much easier.
