    Hi Veljko and welcome to the community :)

    Binaural beats can be the cause of headaches initially for a small minority. You will still benefit greatly from Monaural and Isochronic tones by listening without headphones.

    Although I have never experienced headaches, I nearly always play LifeFlow over speakers now - just my personal preference. When ever I have recommended this it seems to solve the problem.

    Veljko are you using LifeFlow to relax with or meditate and if you are meditating please can you let me know what meditation technique you are using?

    Here is a link to some great information that has helped many people here:-

    Please let me know how you feel without headphones. Look forward to your reply and wish you much peace and joy :) :) :)

    Hi Veljko,

    did you read through the link I posted "The principles of meditation and entrainment"? It's rather long but well worth the read. It covers different types of mantra techniques and a really important point about expectations. Have you also tried without headphones?

    Here is a piece I have copied for you from a recent study about entrainment that is easy to understand:-

    "The predominant frequency that your brain is resonating with at any particular moment can be associated with your state of mind. This means that your state of mind, for example relaxed, frightened, or sleepy can be seen in your brainwave frequencies at that moment.

    Yogis spend years practicing meditation techniques to learn to induce deep states of meditation. The main techniques they have used to be able to achieve these deep states of mind is spending time in dedicated practice hours of practice every day. They work diligently quieting their mind and coaxing their brain into the different states.

    In today’s world few people can tell their wives and children that they are going to sit and meditate for three hours, so please be quiet. We can all experience the amazing benefits of Brainwave Entrainment by listening special brainwave music. The music will enable you to achieve these same states in a just few sessions.

    Perceptual entrainment comes in two forms. Several authors observed ‘symmetrical’ (or ‘bidirectional’) entrainment, i.e., two systems mutually influence each other when subjects are asked to synchronize their leg or index finger movements with that of another person (Schmidt, Carello and Turvey, 1990; Kelso, 1995). However, symmetrical entrainment has also been reported in contexts where participants are not asked to synchronize (Shockley et al., 2003; Richardson et al., 2007).

    Additionally, there is evidence for ‘uni-directional’ entrainment, i.e., a robust external oscillator influences a system, but nor vice versa. This has been shown in studies investigating brainwave synchronization following rhythmic stimulation, i.e., entrainment to periodic acoustic stimuli (Will and Berg, 2007).

    2.2 The Benefits of Brainwave Entrainment
    There are a few of the benefits you can experience with Brainwave Entrainment.

    a. Increase your focus and concentration.
    b. Increased memory performance.
    c. Increased creativity and problem solving ability.
    d. Enhanced sleep and ease of getting to sleep.
    e. Enhanced health.
    f. Access your intuition.
    g. Relaxation and stress reduction.
    h. Behavior modification (getting rid of your bad habits).

    In the above benefits, 1, 2 and 3 is rated to the learning efficiency. When your brain is brought into an alpha or delta state by Brainwave Entrainment, you will find that you have improved your learning abilities.

    There are studies that say most of all sickness is strongly linked to stress. Stress causes chemical changes in the brain which in turn affect your health. By using Brainwave Entrainment to change the state that your brain is in, you can affect your health in a positive manner. Just by bringing your brain into an alpha state you will find that your stress melts away and your outlook on life brightens.

    I do want to mention that diet and exercise is also crucial to reducing stress and you will find that you can use Brainwave Entrainment to help program your mind to change your diet and get you to exercise. The benefits to be realized by controlling your brainwaves are wonderful. You may be thinking, Brainwave Entrainment is similar in the sense that you will find over time you will be able to handle stress and life’s issues more easily."

    Hi Veljko,

    if I am understanding you correctly in that you had headaches before, then maybe check with your Doctor especially if you suffer with them so often. You could also contact the support staff as they are really helpful.

    Look forward to hearing how you progress and wish you much peace and joy :) :) :)

    Welcome to the community :)

    can you look over the links and advice from the beginning of this thread as it should solve your issue. Also, are you relaxing when listening to LifeFlow or using a meditation technique? Look forward to hearing your reply as I feel sure it will be some small alteration in how you are listening.

    I wish you much peace and joy :) :) :)

    One common cause of headaches brought about by meditation, which I don't think has been mentioned yet, is people over-straining when they meditate.

    Some people think that meditation requires them to forcibly keep their eyes shut, and often strain to push their eyes upwards whilst closed. This places a lot of strain on the eye muscles and can lead to a headache sensation.

    Meditation is a state of relaxation and shouldn't require any hard effort, especially no physical effort or discomfort. If you let your eyes relax properly you'll find that that tend to be looking forward or slightly downward, and your eyelids won't be tightly closed; sometimes you may even be able to see a slit of light enterering as the eyelids do not close fully, but this can be accepted and ignored, as it's perfectly normal.

    So, it may be worth just checking your physical posture and become more aware of how much effort you're exerting on yourself to meditate... it may be that you just need to relax a little more and let yourself just Be, whilst you meditate.

    Hugs

    Giles

    Anger causes headaches.
    Do you get angry, resentful of judgmental?

    I replied yesterday and attributed headaches to anger.
    It was not posted, perhaps the truth is not supposed to be posted here.
    just want to say I also suffered from headaches and when I was healed of anger my headaches nener came back. That was over 30 years ago. Suppressing resentful thoughts will bring on headaches.
    When you meditate, if you are listening to a tape, just let the words flow without concentrating on them.
    Dont try to learn them.

    Your reply attributing headaches to anger was posted as I saw it yesterday.

    Perhaps there was a delay in it showing on the forum, as new members tend to be moderated and their posts need to be approved by a moderator before becoming visible on the forum. That's nothing personal or to try and hide any 'truth', it's just the way this forum helps prevent spam etc. The same happened when I first joined, though I knew already that I'd have to wait for my posts to appear until they took me off moderation.
