Meditation & Brain Waves

Meditation & Brain Waves

Everything you do or say is regulated by the frequency of brain waves. There are five main frequency brain waves:  Theta, Delta, Alpha, Beta, and Gamma. These brain waves are in constant motion. Frequency is measured in Hertz (Hz.. cycles per second).

Theta is the state of mind where you can create everything and change reality instantly. Deep meditation brings us into this state, and is favourable for instant healing. Theta ranges from 4 to 7Hz. It’s a very powerful mental state, a state of deep meditation, deep relaxation and mental clarity. It relieves stress and reduces anxiety in people prone to it, and brings absolute perfect calm. Theta governs the part of our mind that lies between the conscious and the subconscious, and also directs our beliefs and behaviour. It allows you to act below the level of the conscious mind, and will bring feelings of spirituality and inspiration. Theta can be compared to a kind of trance, and it’s the first stage of dreaming.

Delta varies between 0 to 4Hz. It’s the state of mind when you’re in deep sleep.

Alpha waves are between 7 and 14Hz. It’s a state of detached deep relaxation and light meditation. It’s also the bridge between Beta and Theta. Alpha governs daydreams and fantasy. When we have difficulty in remembering dreams it means we have not generated sufficient Alpha frequency to bridge between the subconscious and the conscious mind.

Beta has a frequency of 14 to 28Hz. It’s the state in which you are active and alert. When we talk to others for example, our mind is in Beta.

Gamma waves are over 40 Hz, and appear to be involved in higher brain activity, including perception and consciousness.

The Alpha-Theta border from 7Hz to 8Hz, is the optimal range for using the creative power of your mind. It’s the mental state in which you consciously create your reality. At this frequency, you are conscious of your surroundings but your body is in deep relaxation.
