Human consciousness is a subject of infinite fascination in these time because people are realizing just how much our frame of mind is manipulated by mainstream media, corporate and government propaganda. Simultaneously, technology is permitting the free and international exchange of information and now people have access to many spiritual teachings, ideas on conscious transformation, and info about altered states of consciousness.

More people than ever are recognizing how developing greater conscious awareness of their lives is giving humanity the opportunity to evolve beyond the destructive paradigms that dominate life today, giving us all the best chance we have to re-discover a sustainable and humane mode of existence on this planet.

A practical, and legal, means of experimenting with consciousness involves using the scientific understanding of how the brain synchronizes its energetic output to various frequencies, and using technology to induce and maintain unique levels of consciousness. Neuroscience has discovered that human consciousness can be ‘hacked’ by governing the brain’s operating frequency, and recently, scientists have also even been able to trigger lucid dreaming, the state of being consciously aware during deep sleep.

The Electric Brain

The human brain is an electrical organ composed of billions of neurons which emit electricity in order to communicate with one another. The sum of this electrical potential is emitted in patterns which cycle at varying rates, commonly referred to as brain waves. This cyclical energy, which can be picked up and measured by electroencephalography (EEG), is measured in hertz (cycles per second) and has been found to be correlated to the various states of conscious awareness a human can experience. The slower cycles of electrical output being involved with deep sleep or coma, and the faster states being associated with active awareness and bursts of creative insight, inspiration and deep emotion.

The brain’s electricity is constantly fluctuating between various cycles, yet we have identified several major brain wave states which, when predominant, are predictably responsible for certain types of mental functioning. There are other states within this range, but here is a brief explanation of the most important brain wave patterns:

Gamma (25 Hz to 100 Hz, usually around 40 Hz) – Gamma brain waves were only recently discovered by EEG technology and is still not entirely understood, although, it is associated with higher mental functioning and attributed with feelings of ‘blessings’ and peak concentration. This state is also associated with information processing, language and the highest levels of mental functioning.

Beta (14 Hz to 20-25Hz) – Beta brain waves are associated with our general active mental awareness when we are wide awake and actively engaged in the world. In this state, the physical senses are alert and actively taking in information.

Alpha (7 Hz to 14 Hz) – The Alpha brain waves are most commonly associated with meditative mental states, and is often triggered when our eyes close and our physical sensory input is limited. This state is associated with intuitive thinking, insight, creativity, day dreaming and deep relaxation.

Theta (4 Hz to 7 Hz) – These brain waves are present during light sleep and also during deep meditation, where one can experience a deep connection to source, profound insights and visualizations.

Delta (0.5 Hz to 4 Hz) – This brain frequency range is where the body is in its deepest sleep, healing itself and rejuvenating itself. It is here that a person is completely unconscious and a coma happens.

Most of us do not consciously choose which frequency range our brain is functioning within, and our brain activity is more or less governed by our lifestyle, schedules and habits. When we awaken from deep sleep (delta), our brain’s activity begins to slowly increase and the cycles of electrical impulses increase in frequency until eventually we arise in an alpha state. From here we begin our morning routine, which often involves stimulating the brain with exercise, a shower, or caffeine to reach the beta state where we are actively alert and ready to conduct our conscious affairs.

Brainwave Entrainment

By stimulating the brain appropriately, we can train the brain’s electrical impulses to cycle within certain frequency ranges, effectively triggering some of the brain wave states noted above. We effectively experience this when we watch television, which triggers an alpha wave response, lulling us into deep states of suggestibility and lowered awareness. Advertisers rely on this fact of neuroscience to implant ideas and trigger base responses, like sexual desire over consumer products. Likewise, it has been found that moviegoers in the same theatre passively slip into a synchronized state of brain wave functioning and an entire audience’s brain waves can actually harmonize.

    I like brainwave entrainment, it’s faster and better than trying meditation.

    Here is a method using beta waves to overcome your emotions https://www.finerminds.com/mind-power/brain-waves

    I’ve recently started taking meditation more seriously and now meditate everyday. I have a super active mind which would sometimes distract me while I’m painting. Meditation has helped me to be present and focus while I paint. It’s an amazing feeling to let your ego go while you paint and just flow through each movement. https://www.mental-waves-for-happiness.com/product/secrets-of-zen-meditation-zen-music
