I was …amazed. This concept, habit or practice it’s gaining popularity year after year, video after video. ASMR (Autonomous sensory meridian response) is not new. Since 1920’s there were a couple of articles concerning this sensory experience explaining the connection between listening to peculiar sounds and the sensations in different parts of your body.
There are different types of videos involving our hearing sense in Youtube: ASMR, Binaural recording, Role Play, Relaxation, etc. With these key words you can search in a wide variety of videos. In this post I would like to focus on ASMR media.

Now that we know what it is, how it works and how to experience it, I present to you some of the most popular and well-done ASMR videos in Youtube. I must say, these videos were chosen due to their quality, creativity and peculiar storylines.

And the adventure continues. Now, in space. The variety of characters, dialogue and special effects traps us inside an amazing storyline.
I must confess. The options to make this post were vast. Creative and innovative human beings are producing amazing ASMR videos everyday.
After constructing the post, I realized that, as humans, we have so much to discover deep inside from our body, mind and imagination. We are still babies trying to figure out evolution and the power of the mind.
“We talk a lot about the five senses: vision, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. I would add one more…imagination.”
