Wow. Just wow. I only started listening to the first few seconds and I was almost instantly gripped in a trance like state of bliss! If you meditate regularly this tune is really going to hit notes in your mind, body and soul check it out! (Use headphones)


A British band and a group of scientists have made the most relaxing tune in the history of man, an Mp3 of which is at the bottom of this article.

Sound therapists and Manchester band Marconi Union compiled the song. Scientists played it to 40 women and found it to be more effective at helping them relax than songs by Enya, Mozart and Coldplay.

Weightless works by using specific rhythms, tones, frequencies and intervals to relax the listener. A continuous rhythm of 60 BPM causes the brainwaves and heart rate to synchronise with the rhythm: a process known as ‘entrainment’. Low underlying bass tones relax the listener and a low whooshing sound with a trance-like quality takes the listener into an even deeper state of calm.

Dr David Lewis, one of the UK’s leading stress specialists said: “‘Weightless’ induced the greatest relaxation – higher than any of the other music tested. Brain imaging studies have shown that music works at a very deep level within the brain, stimulating not only those regions responsible for processing sound but also ones associated with emotions."


What do you think?

Didn't make me relaxed and I have some bad ass head phones on. I think you're just expecting to experience those things when listening to the song and so they happen. Oh yeah Dr. Who lmao.

You have to make a conscious effort to relax lol! If you are skeptical it won't work as well. It uses binaural tones and beats, stuff like that. It definitely works. Maybe you are just extremely high strung.

Maybe, but I've tried songs/sounds before that were meant to create certain feelings and they just never happened. Oh wait, yep I'm feeling overwhelmed mid-way not what I call relaxation though but ok lol.

I can't say it's the MOST relaxing music I've heard .. but it is pretty good. I believe that when we hear our own heart beat or synthetic/copy/near to our own heart beat, it truly relaxes us for some of us; not all of us. The big 'thump, thump, thump' of the bass drum is what I noticed the most even though it fades out; I listened it it for 3 mins and wanted to reply
)

I'm talking about a normal human heart beat

Personally i would not be able to meditate to this, Then again i have gone through tiring research to find a theta rhythms & brain syncs where i can fall into meditation. Not only to "relax" or to "create a more positive me", but to give glorification to our Creator.

One needs to be careful when going in deep, and surely you need to be protected. It can turn quite nasty if done incorrectly.

But, each for themselves. Still, i have to say what i believe is right no matter who laughs at me, or ridicule my way of doing it.

At first I had my doubts, but after a minute or so It' was taking me 20 seconds to inhale and exhale.

No... I've definitely heard more relaxing tunes than that. The higher pitched ambient noises created a very annoying sound throughout most of it and completely ruined it for me. I revoke their claim to most relaxing song ever... it's sub-par if anything.

Well, I expected to relax (even just a little bit), but each pulse sound was like getting punched in the ears.

Gamma wave frequency is my kind of tune that relaxes me the most. I bought a cd that had an hour of this stuff it's even more relaxing than this vid right here. www.youtube.com...

But 5 minutes into it, my arms and legs felt paralyzed, it was just that awesome. I thought that occassionally I will one of these days have an OBE. It felt like I was gonna leave my body.

Another one that relaxes me is the ASMR videos. It's funny though some of the things that people tinker with just almost puts me to sleep. Flipping pages, couch scratching (amazing!) Brushing hair (Amazing too!), nail tapping, crinkling plastic wrap, hand rubbing, whispering. lol my dad was wondering what the heck I was listening to, when I had a ASMR vid playing in the background


I like these vids a lot! Enjoy! www.youtube.com...

I have not listened to your video but...you should check out theta meditation on youtube. It works wonders. Deep theta I think is what it's called. Listen with headphones. It will blow you away.
