For Deep Relaxation and Body/Mind Healing
This recording is one long track of a continuous Delta Brainwave Metronome sound for aiding meditation and perception enhancement. It achieves this by helping slow down your brainwave activity to the levels associated with deep relaxation and altered states of consciousness.
Track 1: Delta Metronome (67 mins)
Recorded from 3 to 2 cycles per second. To help you access the deeper state of Delta Brainwave, the tone starts at a frequency of 3 Hz and over the first 30 mins gradually slows down to 2 Hz. The remainder of the track stays at 2 Hz. This gives you the benefits of the frequency following response where the brain’s activity “follows the metronome”, moving you gradually deeper in your meditation to the desired Delta state. A big advantage of this recording is that you don't have to use headphones to achieve the Delta Brainwave state.
Benefits of the Delta Brainwave state
- Very deep relaxation/meditation – while associated with deep sleep, increasing your levels of Delta Brainwaves can give you an experience of sublime deep relaxation and all the benefits that follow.
- Body/mind healing: reverse the ageing process – the Delta brainwave pattern is linked to an increase in the release of melatonin, a powerful anti ageing hormone and to decreased levels of cortisol, a stress induced hormone. The Delta brainwave state is suspected to be an even greater healing state than the Theta brainwave state.
- Feelings of bliss and empathy with others – such feelings can come from the deep meditative state that people experience with Delta brainwaves.
- Spiritual healing – if you feel you need to connect more spiritually to others and the world then Delta could be for you. Being the slowest brainwave, Delta gives you the deepest access to your subconscious and a moving spiritual inner connection.
- Enhanced psychic experiences – like the Theta brainwave Delta can show phenomena associated with altered states of consciousness such as paranormal visions, ESP, OBE’s, ability to see auras and many others. Metaphysically Delta is associated with the mineral kingdom.

"This one puts me down into a really deep state and when I come out I feel deeply relaxed." O Maison, Toronto, Canada
"Excellent tone. Simple and rounded and I use this all the time to help me find stillness in mind. The Delta is some of the best meditation I have ever done." A Parkes, San Fransisco, USA
"The Delta Brainwave Metronome gives me the best sleep for a long long time. I use it regularly and am very thankful" B Hughes, Brighton, Australia
"Delta is my prefered metronome recording from Quiet Earth. I find it easy to listen to. I pretty much use it on weekly basis and find the results outstanding." William, email, Wales, UK
I would recommend the Delta recording for anyone wanted to access deeper levels of meditation. It certainly helped me. After just one week I started to get benefits of deep relaxation and now I am experiencing more psychic phenomena. It's really quite amazing." Angelina, email, Australia
How to use the Delta recording
Find a quiet place to sit or lie down making yourself comfortable. When listening to the recording the goal is to still the mind, let go of extraneous thoughts and relax into your space. You may like to concentrate on the silence between the sounds, which can help you focus and remain alert. While the best results come from a willingness to focus your attention, if you find yourself drifting off then don’t let it concern you - this can be part of the experience and may lead to insights and unusual perceptions. Acknowledge every experience you have. With practice, you will be able to slip into deeper states of meditation while remaining mindful and perceptively relaxed.
Research information on Brainwave States
Due to the collective electrical activity of neurons, the brain produces a resonant frequency measured in cycles per second or hertz (Hz) called a brainwave state. At any one time the brain produces all frequencies but collectively a dominant one can be measured. The brain is highly dynamic and during the day and night we pass through all states being dependent on our physical and mental activities.
Gamma (40+Hz) associated with a lift in mood, happiness, intelligence and greater feelings of love for oneself and others.
Beta (14+Hz) - everyday working conscious state - as you read these lines you are most likely in the Beta state.
Alpha (7-14Hz) - a calm relaxed state. Occurs while daydreaming and during light meditation but can also occur when one is focused and mentally alert. Has links to dreaming during sleep, simple problem solving and a positive outlook on life.
Theta (4-7Hz) - for deep meditation, relaxation and exploring psychic phenomena. Associated with creative insight, flashes of intuition, advanced problem solving, altered states, better sleep and boosting immune system function.
Delta (1-4Hz) - associated with deep sleep and body healing but also linked to benefits of deep meditative states such as profound visions, bliss and altered states.
Research using techniques known as Biofeedback has shown that an external stimulus (such as the repetitive metronome tone) induces the brain to match the resonant frequency. This enables the subject to access the different levels of brainwave activity. Many people have shown that through practice they can maintain consciousness while accessing the benefits of being in any of these states. These include deep relaxation; more energy and better sleep; enhanced focus and concentration; accelerated learning; feelings of joy, happiness and compassion; body healing; plus phenomena associated with altered states of consciousness such as out of body experiences, feeling of rebirth, vivid dream recall, an explosion in creativity, strange time/space occurrences and many others.
