For those who have been asking for an MP3 format to download to your phones and computers, it’s here!
As you probably already know, you’ll need to use ear buds or ear phones to take advantage of the bilateral effect. Feel free to download these two songs to your computer or phone for your own use and ENJOY!
Instructions for relaxing with Bilateral Music:
In order to combat stress and anxiety it’s important to learn to breathe! Slow, deep, quiet breathing (diaphragmatic breathing) so that you SEE and FEEL your abdomen rise and fall with each in and out of your breath is key. Focus on breathing and enjoy the bilateral music. You can also enhance this experience by imagining a beautiful, safe place and being there in your mind. Make it as detailed as possible to help your mind believe that it’s real.
Instructions for working with physical pain using Bilateral Music:
Again, as with relaxation work, you need to focus on belly breathing AND also focus on the pain (which is usually what we try to avoid). Just notice the pain — even if it is in several areas. Keep noticing the pain and when it moves or shifts just follow it and keep noticing. It is not unusual for the pain to move, shift, or change intensity. Whatever it does, simply notice it without judgement or a lot of thought as to what it means.
The tracks below are full version samples.
There are two versions of the CDs on-line: bilateral (with auto-panning) or a regular stereo mix. The stereo version is great for just listening and relaxing as well as for clinicians who use a NeuroTek kit for EMDR.
