    "Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR), sometimes auto sensory meridian response,[2][3][4] is a tingling sensation that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine. A pleasant form of paresthesia,[5] it has been compared with auditory-tactile synesthesia[6][7] and may overlap with frisson.

    ASMR signifies the subjective experience of "low-grade euphoria" characterized by "a combination of positive feelings and a distinct static-like tingling sensation on the skin". It is most commonly triggered by specific auditory or visual stimuli, and less commonly by intentional attention control.[1][8] A genre of videos which intend to induce ASMR has emerged, of which by 2018 over 13 million are published on YouTube.[9]"

    Here are a few of my recommended ASMRtists:

    Are you presenting this as a spiritual experience?

    Or do you think it is spiritually neutral and therefore merges into Christian life without conflict?

    You thoughts and the thoughts of others appreciated.

    I had to stop watching because hypnotic devices were being used. since I'm an empath that can result in synchonizing with their body signals remotely - and that can be really weird.

    I get the idea though and can see why it is popular, inducing a relaxing trance is cheaper than drugs that do the same thing.

    I've found another form of release, since the hypnotic kind leaves me open to exploitation.

    Ummmmm, Id' say that I enjoy it as a hobby and/or interest.


    I have found it to be relaxing. I usually listen to it at night, before sleep.

    I have found the first one on my list to be a source of joy for me, because she is quirky and I laugh at/with her a lot.

    The second one has been good to me, because she has a really great vocabulary and presents her material very well...like a Toastmaster. Poetry is another of my hobbies/interests, so I like to hear some poetry as I drift off to sleep.

    The third one is simply a great way to fall asleep as she reads The Hobbit. One of my all-time favorite stories.

    As far as the tingling ASMR sensations themselves. I'd say it's more like experiencing a treat, like a massage or something...it's soothing and calming.

    There are other artists that have mastered this aspect, such as:



    If I'm going purely for the feeling itself, that ^ is my go to video.

    Hmmmm, I never heard any of this before.

    Hypnotic devices? Synchronizing remotely?

    Any examples of what this is like?

    Hypnotic device #1 is talking quietly and slowly, but not too slow - just at the right rhythm to get the mind to switch off and accept stimuli.

    Synchronizing - first time I remember it clearly was when I'd walk down the stairs at the same pace as someone step for step, then there's was this "oneness" in this unified movement. The person might have noticed also since their pace sped up considerably after the moment of synchronization.

    I've also noticed synchronization in groups of people all doing the same thing, it causes a unified field of consciousness while the same action keeps being done by everyone in that area.

    Remotely - meaning far away as if distance is an illusion.

    In general, it can result in sharing thoughts to body signals, when it happens with a member of the opposite sex I sometimes experience sensations that don't translate to my body so well.

    Over time, I've found ways of filtering "not my signals" out, but avoiding collective trance like states through shared activities - is also a helpful preventative strategy.

    Well, I have TLNFCSS created from a lower back surgery (TinglinLegNumb FootCrawlingSpiderSensations) and FNDCI (FootNerveDamageCausing Insomnia) from surgery on my big toe metatarsal joint. Does that count?

    Personally I do not understand the appeal of ASMR. The few I have listened to sounded disturbing. I do not like the sensation of someone whispering into my ears. Although I have noticed a lot of them contain young attractive females.

    The only kind of ASMR I might like is the harsher stuff. Like some guy banging on a trash can screaming at the top of his lungs played on a loop for hours and hours.

    Oh, okay.

    Would you say that you'd have to be well versed in this type of thinking for it to effect you like that?

    I haven't went really deep with the new agey, psychologicey, uhhhh, you know, yuppie stuff.

    I have always wondered what the sensation is that makes me feel like I have a feathered nape. So, when another member here posted one of these ASMR vids., I was like "oohhhh, so there is a name for the sensation!" And I have enjoyed this hobby/interest since.

    Not really, it just happens to a random selection of the population every so often. Some are more sensitive or others - but when it affects them to this degree, something really traumatic must have happened on an internal level to level the walls of Jericho so to speak.

    It's kind of a shame that churches use the same devices just differently.

    I recall enjoying something similar in another decade, being able to rest is not a bad thing especially when there's a lot of pain.

    Yeah, if I had a woman, I probably wouldn't have any interest in these vids...I would just be like, "Hey babe, come whisper in my ear and pet my head please.", ha ha.

    Like, what, the music?

    You believe that this synchronization can take place between the church members?

    *I've wondered about some gestures that people do when speaking. Do you think that some of them are intentional?

    It's alright. Just wondering if that's a big factor in the appeal of ASMR. I've seen women linking those kinds of videos and it's always of cute guys. Lol.

    I used to listen to binaural beats but i did research and found out balancing the chakra's is not a good thing so i stopped. It didnt really do anything for me anyways

    But this seems different. Id consider giving it a try but im going to wait for more responses. Also, im an empath and i already say another poster say he was an empath and this wasnt good for him...so im leaning towards not trying it at the moment

    This is a good one, I'm currently listening to. It's touching...so I guess that's spiritual.

    Binaural beats does involve balancing chakras. It's a kind of brainwave entrainment.
