Most of us focus on looking at our emotions in an attempt to become happier, more spiritual beings. Our brain waves and subconscious mind also play a key part in our quest for fulfillment.
We each have five brain frequencies (Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta and Gamma). Each is measured in cycles per second (Hz) and has its own set of characteristics representing a specific level of brain activity and a unique state of consciousness.
The Waking Consciousness
and Reasoning Wave
Beta brain waves are associated with normal waking consciousness and a heightened state of alertness, logic and critical reasoning.
While Beta brain waves are important for effective functioning throughout the day, they also can translate into stress, anxiety and restlessness.
The voice of Beta can be described as being that nagging little inner critic that gets louder the higher you go into range.
The Light Meditation
and Sleeping Wave
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. At this frequency, you are conscious of your surroundings however your body is in deep relaxation.
Unlike your other brain waves, the elusive voice of Theta is a silent voice.
