“Loved using BE whenever I needed to focus more.” ~Michael Lapetina
A Journey into Presence
BE is designed to relax your nervous system into an alpha brainwave state—a light meditative state similar to what you would feel if you were deprived of sensory information coming in from the environment and able to focus simply on calming your thoughts. Alpha waves are associated with developing multidimensional awareness, peak performance states, creativity, and presence.

The Story of the Development of BE from the creator, Nadja Lind
On a so-called “normal day,” what happens is usually a gradual disconnection from my true joyful nature, a narrowing of my awareness, the shrinking of my power, and the lessening of my energy. Building up protective shields and masks in order to be able to “function and act in the world” uses a great deal of my precious energy—energy that could be invested in playful creativity, sparking new solutions to problems or challenges, and feeling more in touch, alive, meaningful, and aware.
With BE, I aimed to create a musical switch to loosen up the shells I unconsciously build around myself in order to protect myself from the constant overflow of information, expectations, mental pollution, and distracting energies of my surroundings.
After my Theta Joy release on iAwake, I felt like creating some binaural alpha waves, conveyed on a melodic composition of layered sounds, and flavored with some brain-goosebumps-inducing Auto Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) recordings which allow the nervous system to relax and BE -come free from daily stressors, automatic shielding, and contraction mechanisms.
I aimed to hug you into a safe state by tucking you in a cozy, warm blanket of sound and alpha waves, where you can allow yourself to let go of the protective, rigid guards that dissociate you from your true pleasureful Self.
Each repetition of this composition allows you to let go and open up more and more, so your inner state becomes more fluid, more de-light -ful, more focused, and more colorful and pristine in order to connect to your playful and free-flowing true creative nature. Think of this soundtrack as a meditation with the intention to BE -come limitless and free. Just (allow yourself to) BE.
How to Use
Download the iAwake App
First, download the FREE iAwake App, login with your email, and all your tracks will be right there. You can stream them, but we’d advise downloading them (from within the app) to ensure an interruption-free experience, and to be able to listen offline.
From the creator, Nadja Lind:
BE is designed to be listened to with headphones in order to get the binaural alpha effects of easing your brain, clearing your thoughts, and becoming more and more present and inspired with each repetition of its chord progression. It can also be used as background music while working or engaging in creative processes.
With BE, I intended to produce an easy and repetitive melody that you can listen to for an hour without getting too attached and also not get bored. Little changes, filtering, and sound effects happen over the length of the track. I recorded the ASMR-inducing sounds and field ambience on my fantastic safari trip in Kenya, after playing a DJ gig in Nairobi.
Alpha waves can amplify your clarity and imagination and boost your performance and creativity. They are even said to be the “artist brain waves,” where new ideas and solutions are sparked and you connect to your inner playful state of clarity and wisdom. Alpha helps you become fully present in a state of multidimensional awareness, which increases problem-solving capacity, and you may even experience a sense of deep connection, belonging, and flow. Alpha is also fundamental to our spiritual growth, since we need a strong alpha in order to establish connections during states of trance, deep meditation, and dream sleep.
BE is designed to entrain your brain to an alpha frequency of 9 Hz—a brainwave state associated with boosting concentration and expanding your awareness and brain power, which will help you study, concentrate, focus, and work more lightly and effectively. BE is the ideal relaxing music for stress relief and getting in touch with your inner flow and creativity.
Listening to BE before a big test or challenge can help you concentrate, focus, and relax. BE is also ideal background music for studying and tapping into your inner intuition and clarity for relaxation and meditation.
Quick personal note: Please only listen on quality headphones (no cheap earbuds, as they cut out the most important frequencies of the music!) in order to get the full spectrum of sound and get the maximum effect from the composition.
From the creator, Nadja Lind:
The binaural alpha is a constant 9 Hz binaural beat pulse I produced with my own binaural tool using two oscillators.
The composition is a nice, mellow, warm chord progression played in a repetitive manner, produced with my favorite sound design instruments, e.g. Omnisphere 2, Trilian Bass, Korg Minilogue, Moog Minitaur, and other devices and effects.
The ASMR-inducing sounds and field recording ambience were recorded during the fantastic safari trip I was invited on in Kenya, after I played a DJ gig in Nairobi.
Nadja Lind, creator of some of iAwake’s most intriguing and distinctive tracks (Heaven and Earth, Refuge, BE, Theta Joy, Strong Medicine, Purrfound Meditation, Turning In Ambient Meditations, and Workout Ecstasy Volumes I and II), has a passion for recording ambient sounds and developing binaural beat ambient meditations.
Recording initially to support her own healing process, Nadja’s friends and colleagues enthusiastically requested more drone waves with the certain Nadja touch.
Nadja lives in Berlin, Germany, has had a globetrotting DJ career since 2003, been a producer of electronic music since 2004, and is co-owner of the Lucidflow imprint. Nadja is also a certified specialist in Pain Relief Therapy, Osteo Pressure & Fascia Yoga, a certified Energy Medicine Therapist (Donna Eden), and a certified Yoga Trainer.
This track makes it very easy to get into the meditation zone and stay there. ~ Joel
I tested the track while reading and doing mundane tasks, such as checking emails or paying bills, and I experienced myself as deeply present and happily focused on the task at hand, instead of feeling slightly resistant to completing another thing on my to-do list. – Lisa Celentano, MA, LMHCA
