Gamma: app. 40 - 100 Hz. This range is the most recently discovered and is the fastest frequency. This level is associated with the “feeling of blessings” reported by experienced meditators such as monks and nuns, and with peak concentration and extremely high levels of cognitive functioning.
Beta: app. 14 - 40 Hz. In this level we are awake and alert. It is 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. At this level the ego is strong.
Alpha: app. 7 - 14 Hz. This is a state of deep relaxation (physical and mental). When you’re daydreaming or doing a light meditation you will enter into the alpha level. In this level you can start to program your mind for success. It´s good for applying your imagination and using it with creative visualization techniques.
This is the portal to your subconscious mind. It lies at the base of your conscious awareness. When you reach the lower levels of Alpha you can start to access your intuition - the inner voice. It becomes clearer and more profound the closer you get to the lowest end of the alpha range - 7.0 Hz.
Theta: app 4 -7 Hz. This state is experienced during deep meditation and light sleep. At this brainwave level we are in the realm of our subconsciousness mind. many talk about feeling a deep spiritual connection and unity with the universe when in this level.
The Alpha-Theta border, between 7Hz to 8Hz, is the optimal range for visualization, subconscious programming and applying your creative powers. In this mental state you consciously create your reality. It´s a level where you are conscious of your surrounding, but at the same time your body is in deep relaxation.
Delta: app. 0,5 - 4 Hz. This is the slowest of the brainwaves and is experienced in deep, dreamless sleep and in very deep, transcendental meditation where awareness is fully detached. This is the realm of your unconscious mind,
