What are brain waves and how do they work?

Do we control ourselves? Are we the controller of our reality?

Many times this question comes up in my mind and I am sure you would also be facing such question.

After learning the brainwaves, I can definitely say that yes, we can control ourselves. It’s not the outside influences that make you but it is your thoughts, emotions and feelings which create the way you are. Basically, it’s all about the mindset you operate with.

Our brain’s ability to become flexible through various brain wave frequencies determine many things. How you handle stress at work? How you balance b/w the your personal and professional life? How you react to a panic situation? and so many things…..

To make a better and optimal decision, it is very important to understand that there is no single brain waves which servers your purpose. In fact, there are mainly 4 types of brain waves which affect how you think, say and react.

#1. Delta Frequency

The Delta frequency is the slowest of the frequencies and is experienced in deep, dreamless sleep and where awareness is fully detached.

Deep sleep is very important for the healing process. Not having deep sleep can cause many health issues as you body will face weak immune system.

#2. Theta Frequency

This is your mind’s most deep-seated programs. 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.

#3. Alpha Frequency

Alpha brain waves are present in deep relaxation and usually when the eyes are closed, when you’re slipping into a lovely daydream or during light meditation.

It is an optimal time to program the mind for success and it also heightens your imagination, visualization, memory, learning and concentration.

#4. Beta Frequency

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.

We easily forget that we are the controllers of our reality — and that “our reality” is not made up of outside influences, but that it actually consists of our thoughts, beliefs and mindset.
