Brainwaves | Hemi Sync | Meditation | Hypnosis | Divine Guidance
Brain waves are, essentially, the evidence of electrical activity produced by your brain. When a group of neurons sends a burst of electrical pulses to another group of neurons, it creates a wave-like pattern.
These waves are measured in speed cycles per second, which we describe as Hertz (Hz). Depending on how awake and alert you are, the waves might be very fast, or they might be very slow. They can and do change, based on what you’re doing and how you’re feeling.
The fastest brain waves are waves known as gamma waves.
Gamma waves tend to measure above 35 Hz — and in fact, they can oscillate as fast as 140 Hz.
Gamma waves are evidence that you’ve achieved peak concentration. In other words, when you’re intensely focused and your brain is actively engaged in solving a problem, this is when your brain is likely producing gamma waves. Gamma waves help you process high levels of information.
Dr. Dawson Church in his book Mind to Matter explains that specific gamma frequency bands are associate with unique effects:
- 75 Hz is epigenetic: Triggers anti-inflammatory protein production.
- 50 Hz is regenerative: The body produces stem cells that are capable of becoming muscle, bone, skin.
- 75 Hz – 125 Hz is bone-building.
How do you get there though?
You can boost your gamma wave production by meditating. Focusing your attention on your breathing may also help, as does chanting!
People who focused on their breath during yoga, experienced greater increases in gamma wave production, than they did during the meditation part of their practice! Basically, the correct ratio of concentration and relaxation has to be met.
One easy way to naturally increase gamma brain waves is by learning.
Gamma spikes when you’re learning, connecting information, or integrating it into your life.
Any material will do, but the point is to actually be learning, not mindlessly reading and not dumb scrolling.
3. Be In The Moment
Ever so elusive, being in the moment sounds like it is just a buzzword until one day you find yourself in the moment. It is hard to explain this, but try to find yourself in the moment by enjoying the moment.
5. Become a musical virtuoso
Musicians are the other group known for their consistent and extraordinary gamma, because musical practice enters them into a flow state. I remember practicing the piano, and after an hour or so, the keyboard would shrink, and time expand, and that is the entrance into gamma state.
Their brains adapt and that flow state becomes a conditioned response to picking up an instrument!
So you don’t play an instrument?
What about listening to music?
When it comes to gamma rays, it is only when playing, but you can start learning now, you don’t have to be proficient at playing, just diligent at practicing. Or chose one of the other methods!
6. Listen to Binaural Beats
This method is completely passive. You put on headphones and and go about your day. Ces’t tout.
Binaural beats is a special audio tracks created exclusively for the purpose of shiftin your brain into gamma mode.
However, they only work with headphones and earphones, because a different sound frequency is played into each ear. The brain makes an adjustment of the frequencies of this sound by averaging the two frequencies into one, and this produces the gamma waves.
7. Put your body in The Zone
From a body perspective, gamma brainwave mode relies on a very interesting bodily state that is most often called The Zone. You cannot enter into a gamma brainwave state when you’re physically tense. You have to be energetic, but not tense. The same as in yoga, concentrated, yet relaxed. Many challenging physical activities will get you there.
8. Be non- judgmental
In a gamma brainwave state, you are pushing to the limit of your mental, perceptive and intuitive capacity. Everything is open and you are receiving high levels of information, not putting out information not producing opinions. All of your senses are taking in data especially your sixth sense. You engage completely non-judgmentally with what’s happening around you, so practice being non-judgmental.
9. Gratitude and compassion
This step is an essential companion of the gamma brainwave state, so skip right ahead to gratitude by practicing it all the time, in fact, love, compassion and gratitude might be all you need to produce gamma waves.
Different brain waves:
If your doctor evaluates your brain with an EEG while you’re awake, alert, and engaged, the predominant waves will be beta waves. These waves tend to measure in the 12 to 38 Hz range.
When you’re awake but feeling quiet and contemplative, that’s when alpha waves tend to rise to the occasion. Alpha brain waves are situated in the middle of the spectrum of brain waves. They tend to measure between 8 and 12 Hz.
Theta waves are the brain waves that occur in the 3 to 8 Hz range. They can occur when you’re sleeping, but they tend to be more dominant when you’re deeply relaxed or in a meditative state.
Deep dreamless sleep produces a type of brain wave known as the delta wave. These waves are low and slow. An EEG would measure these waves in the 0.5 and 4 Hz range.
Gamma brainwaves move through your brain, they sweep across your brain from front to back, beginning in the prefrontal cortex where thinking occurs and sweeping back through the sensory areas.
Gamma is the elusive holy grail of cognition, only accessible by slowing down.
Gamma waves lead to Increased memory recall, heightened senses, sharper focus faster processing speed, enhanced creativity, energy, it is nature’s Xanax and Prozac. Gamma waves gives us a greater quality of life. Gamma waves leads us straight to divine guidance, spiritual downloads and massive amounts of creative inspiration.
How long and how much?
In general, there is no limit to how long you can listen binaural beats. Since binaural beats have various frequencies, they are designed to be applied for specific purposes . Each session should be no longer than 90 minutes which allows your brain to refresh and rejuvenate.
