We provide you a tool, in order to make your meditations the best way to contact you inner Self and connect with your abilities and develop them. I find it (Ascension) especially beautiful, and magical, very recommendable. 🙂
What are brainwaves?
Your brain is made up of billions of brain cells called neurons, which use electricity to communicate with each other.
The combination of millions of neurons sending signals at once produces a significant amount of electrical activity in the brain, which can be detected using sensitive medical equipment such as an electroencephalogram (EEG).
This electrical activity of the brain is commonly known as a brainwave pattern, because of its cyclic, ‘wave-like’ nature.
You can train your brain to change your brainwaves by learning meditation and relaxation techniques. However, it can take weeks, and for some people even years to experience the proven and powerful benefits of brainwave entrainment through meditation alone.
There is also a shortcut to getting the best from your brainwaves by using an audio tone known as binaural beats.
Binaural beats effectively entrain and synchronise your brainwaves to enhance any specific brainwave pattern. This allows you to rapidly enter states of relaxation, focus, high-energy, or meditation whenever you want.
What are the benefits of modifying our brainwaves?
In general, we are accustomed to being in the Beta brain rhythm. We are in a Beta brainwave pattern when we are consciously alert. It is the default and dominant brainwave for most of us, most of the time. We are in Beta when we feel agitated, tense, hurried, pressured, afraid and stressed. The frequencies range from 13 to 60 pulses per second in the Hertz scale.
When we alter our brain rhythm to Alpha, we are slowing our brainwaves down. The benefit of this is that we put ourselves in the ideal brain state for optimal performance and super learning.
We become better at analysing complex situations, learning new information, memorising data, and performing elaborate tasks.
Some forms of meditation, relaxation exercises, and activities that enable a sense of calm, also naturally create this Alpha state.
According to neuroscientists, the effect of decreasing the brain rhythm from Beta to Alpha via deep relaxation techniques and the use of binaural beats brain entrainemnt, changes the levels of certain beneficial brain chemicals.
Studies show that Alpha states significantly increase Beta-endorphin, noro-epinephrine and dopamine. These naturally occurring chemicals are linked to feelings of expanded mental clarity and generate an internal environment for new learning and accessing previously learned information. This positive effect lasts for hours and even days.

Theta brainwave states have been used in meditation for centuries: it is common for people to feel as if they are in a trance, where the mind feels as though it may have gone to sleep although it is conscious of what is happening around it. Theta induces a capacity for prolonged daydreaming, where a loss of time may be experienced.
Theta waves are also conducive to visualization and creativity, and the mind in this very relaxed state is highly receptive to direct suggestion under hypnosis. As with Alpha, in Theta our brain hemispheres are synchronized and we experience whole brain functioning.
Features and benefits of Theta brainwaves
– Increased sense of inner peace and emotional stability
– Deep relaxation
– Improved memory
– Heightened intuition and inspiration
– Calms the chatter of your mind
– Increased psychic abilities and sense of spiritual connection
Health benefits of Theta brainwaves
– Speed healing, improved physical healing
– Sleep onset and better more restful sleep
– Release beneficial hormones related to health and longevity
– Reduce mental fatigue
– Reduction of anxiety and stress
NOTE: research has proven thirty minutes a day of Theta meditation can dramatically improve a person’s overall health and well-being. Theta meditation has also been known to result in a reduced need for sleep.
