Is Your Head Being Boomed?
You’re standing outside in your yard enjoying the fresh air and quiet. Suddenly you hear your neighbor’s teenage son coming down the street.
You’re not hearing him, but the stereo blasting in his car. It’s audible long before he passes your house.
You feel the earth shaking to “boom, boom, boom.” The low frequency bass notes are felt under your feet and in your ears.
Where’s the melody? You won’t hear the high frequency acoustic guitar and vocals until the car drives by you. They disappear quickly once the car has passed your house.
But the thumping of the “boom, boom, boom” bass can still be felt for a while.
Low frequency sounds are heard at a much farther distance than high frequencies. The reason is that high frequency sound travels in a straight line. It can’t bend around corners and objects like low frequencies do.
If you’re at a parade waiting for a marching band to approach, you’ll hear the bass drums beating at a distance. your heart beats faster, you breathe more rapidly and feel a thrilling anticipation. It’s only when the marchers are much closer that the melody is audible.
Drumming is a powerful way to get your heart beating and your mind and body excited. Fun occasionally, but not in regular doses. Because stress does the same thing to your body.
Getting your pulse to race doesn’t translate into having more energy. It’s just a temporary surge of adrenaline.
If real, lasting energy is what you’re looking for, then listen to positive, high frequency sounds. They won’t raise your blood pressure. Far from it. They’ll SLOW down you’re heartbeat and replenish worn out cells.
Get on the rejuvenation program now. Start listening. Anywhere.
