We have five brainwave frequencies/states of consciousness measured in cycles per second (Hz). With each brain state level that we descend, the closer we get to our Source, higher self, or the universal mind.
The point is to consciously direct your awareness to each state until you can reach deep theta through meditation or through learning how to bounce in and out of the sleep state upon waking (the hypnogogic state). Learning how to go in and out of the Alpha and Theta states will help you master your reality and manifest the life you want (through visualisations, affirmations etc). Also the Solfegggio frequencies are explained below)
1. Beta (14-40Hz) — The waking consciousness and reasoning wave
Normal waking consciousness and a heightened state of alertness, logic and critical reasoning. Allows effective functioning throughout the day, but can translate into stress, anxiety and restlessness. (The nagging little inner critic that causes stress)
Many people live their entire lives in the beta mode of existence and become uncomfortable when moving out of it…they will then distract: phone, videos, text friends, read mindless FB posts, get drunk or high, or just go sleep. These are generally unhappy people-with themselves or their direction in life or because they are fearful of confronting something within that may require painful changes.
B.The study and focus frequency! -no more exam stress 🙂 (14-25hertz with dips:
2. Alpha (7.5-14Hz) — the deep relaxation wave
A wispy state of reflection and day dreaming. Been daydreaming and snapping back from your reverie by a noise? That’s alpha.Some of our most stunning and brilliant observations are available to us at this level,
Alpha brain waves are present in deep relaxation and usually when the eyes are closed (but not necessarily) , when you’re slipping into a lovely daydream or during light meditation. GOOD TIME FOR AFFIRMATIONS! and it also heightens your imagination, visualization, memory, learning and concentration.
Usually in the bed, bath, and bus 🙂 It is the gateway to your subconscious mind and where ideas are allowed to surface.
3. Theta (4-7.5Hz) — the light meditation and sleeping wave (REM is here)
The subconscious Mind. Deep meditation. This is a state of mind where excellent psychic experiences can occur, astral projection and extended remote viewing. We generally experience the theta level in deep meditations and in our sleep state. Here we can transcend time and space, obtain remote perceptions, and obtain information from the highest source.
Your mind’s most deep-seated programs are at Theta and it is where you experience vivid visualizations, great inspiration, profound creativity and exceptional insight. Unlike your other brain waves, the elusive voice of Theta is a silent voice.
It is at the Alpha-Theta border, from 7Hz to 8Hz, where the optimal range for visualization, mind programming and using the creative power of your mind begins. It’s the mental state which you consciously create your reality. At this frequency, you are conscious of your surroundings however your body is in deep relaxation.
The last time you dreamt, you were in theta. If you can’t remember your dream, you were in delta:
4. Delta (0.5-4Hz) — the deep sleep wave
The Delta frequency is the slowest of the frequencies and is experienced in deep, dreamless sleep and in very deep, transcendental meditation where awareness is fully detached.
This brain state is related to the unconscious or super-conscious mind. In the delta state of awareness, brain waves are oscillating at less than 4 cycles per second. This occurs with deep sleep, profound states of meditation, or an actual coma. Here our awareness is completely within (universal mind). Only under the most developed circumstances can a person dip into the delta state of awareness and bring back any intelligible information.
Delta is the realm of your unconscious mind, and the gateway to the universal mind and the collective unconscious, where information received is otherwise unavailable at the conscious level.
5. Gamma (above 40Hz) – The Insight Wave 25 to 100 Hz, (40 Hz is typical).
Unity Consciousness. Feeling blessed (think prayer and chanting) , In the Zone: capable of ANYTHING! Gamma brain waves are the fastest brainwave frequency with the smallest amplitude. Peak concentration and extremely high levels of cognitive functioning.
Neuroscientists believe that gamma waves are able to link information from all parts of the brain — the gamma wave originates in the thalamus and moves from the back of the brain to the front and back again 40 times per second — not only that, but the entire brain is influenced by the gamma wave. This rapid “full sweep” action makes the gamma state one of peak mental and physical performance. Gamma is the brainwave state of being “in the Zone,” that feeling that you can do anything.Gamma waves are associated with bursts of insight and high-level information processing.
