Using sound to unlock ESP

People use things such as sense deprivation or meditation as a means to potentially unlock or enhance their ESP. Let's look into the role that soundwaves such as binaural beats and isochronic tones could possibly play in unlocking a person's ESP. There is even a test at the end to see if it works!


"If you want to find the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration."

Nikola Tesla

ESP stands for Extra Sensory Perception.  It is what many refer to as 'the sixth sense'.  It is used to essentially explain any sort of psychic ability. From a person seemingly receiving messages from the other side by using things like telepathy and clairvoyance.  While other terms such as 'supersensuous perception and extra sensory cognition' were used to describe this phenomenon, it was Joseph Banks Rhine who didn't feel these terms were specific enough and went on to make the term Extra Sensory Perception what it is today.  

"this mode of perception is above and outside the sensory sphere, and is likely to be more of a total response, un-differentiable and un-analyzable-a reception on the complex level of knowing.  Hence I call it 'Extra-Sensory Perception'."

E.S.P Extra Sensory Perception by Joseph Banks Rhine (1934)

Some believe that everyone is born with the potential ability of ESP, it is that some access it naturally while others have to work a bit harder. Some of the methods used to 'unlock' a person's ESP are things like sensory deprivation and meditation. For some, they like to use soundwaves such as binaural beats and isochronic tones.

Binaural Beats & Isochronic Tones

Binaural beats are a form of soundwave therapy. The right and left ears listen to two slightly different frequency tones, however, they perceive the tone to be the same. The frequency needs to be lower than 1000kz for the brain to be able to detect it. As an example, the left ear may register a tone of 200hz, while the right ear has a tone of 210hz. It supposedly produces an effect similar to meditation. Studies show that when hooked up to an EEG that records a person's brain activity show that there is an effect on a person's body. This effect varied depending on the frequency pattern used. Researchers have categorized this into 4 areas:

  • Delta patterns: Binaural beats in the delta pattern are set at a frequency of between 0.1 and 4 Hz, which is associated with dreamless sleep.
  • Theta patterns: Binaural beats in the theta pattern are set at a frequency of between 4 and 8 Hz, which is associated with sleep in the rapid eye movement or REM phase, meditation, and creativity.
  • Alpha pattern: Binaural beats in the alpha pattern are set at a frequency of between 8 and 13 Hz, which may encourage relaxation.
  • Beta pattern: Binaural beats in the beta pattern are set at a frequency of between 14 Hz and 100 Hz, which may help promote concentration and alertness. However, this frequency can also increase anxiety at the higher end of the frequency range.

Much like binaural beats, isochronic tones are also used as a form of sound healing. Isochronic tones are a single tone that turn on and off and regular intervals. This creates a type of rhythmic pulsing sound.  It is often incorporated with nature and animal soundtracks.  They are also often used in conjunction with binaural beats to increase the stimulation to the brain.  They are both considered to be a form of brainwave entertainment.

According to healthline:

Lower frequency brain waves, such as theta and delta waves, are associated with the sleep state. Therefore, listening to a low frequency isochronic tone might potentially help to promote better sleep.
Higher frequency brain waves, such as gamma and beta waves, are associated with an active, engaged mind. Listening to a high frequency isochronic tone could possibly aid in attentiveness or concentration.
The intermediate type of brain wave, alpha waves, occurs in a relaxed state. Listening to isochronic tones within the alpha wave frequency may be examined as a way to induce a state of relaxation or aid in meditation.
Many people use isochronic tones on soundtracks when attempting to go into a state where they may be able to perform lucid dreaming or astral projection.  Studies suggest that there are benefits to using this kind of technology, however as to if people can legitimately astral project or lucid dream while using these tones cannot be proven given that brainwave entertainment can cause a person to hallucinate.

It is important to understand that binaural beats and isochronic tones can have an effect on the human body and are not recommended to people that have neurological or cardiac issues. A risk of using binaural beats is that if you are epileptic or prone to seizure, using binaural beats and isochronic tones is discouraged.

Many spiritual pages claim that the frequency of 7.8hz Theta waves can help to unlock ESP ability and that Alpha waves at 8.3hz can help stimulate a person's psychic ability  Why not try it out and see what happens.  Here is a little challenge for you.

Head to the LLIFS Zener card page and do a 25 card spread.

Write down your percentage.

Listen to this video in full and relax, meditate and let the tones do their work.

Now go back and do another 25 card spread.  Write down your percentage.  Was there a significant improvement in your ESP abilities?  Probably not as it is not something that is not developed overnight, but this was a fun little test for you to try and something you can continue to do.
