 “The things that we would be asking ourselves is, “What proportion of my day am I in vibrational harmony with my desires, which means, how much of my day am I happy, glad, eager, fulfilled, satisfied, complimentary? And what percentage of my day am I ornery, irritated, frustrated, or blaming?” And you don’t have to do 100%, you don’t have to do 90%, you don’t have to do 80%. If you could even get around 55% feeling better, than not feeling so good — you’d have significant movement in what begins to happen in your experience.”

— Abraham, Jerry and Esther

You can sit in a lotus position. You can chant. You can focus your thoughts nd calm the “monkey mind.”

But, when it comes down to the core of it, to better understand meditation, we need to get to know our brain waves…

Like so many other things in life, brainwaves are made up of vibrations- vibrations at different speeds. To give a simple overview:

  • At Beta, you are wide awake and alert but processing everything that is going on around you. A conscious state, good for concentration, cognition, and productivity
  • At Alpha, you are more focused and screen out extemporary stimuli. Relaxing and pleasant, great for stress reduction, visualization and creativity
  • At Theta, you’re in a “”twilight state” between waking and sleeping. Helpful for meditation, intuition and memory; and also helpful for reprogramming your beliefs, especially unconscious ones.
  • And at Delta, you’re in deep, restful sleep. Essential for health and healing.

As you can see, different activities are better with different waves. And meditation both utilizes different brain waves, and helps us access them more easily in other situations. Most meditation falls into alpha state, theta state or on the boundary in between the two.

And that’s how meditation can be chanting, or mantras, or the lotus position; and can also be walking, or breathing, or doing the dishes. Any activity that you can do that takes you into that “altered state” can be a meditation, with the benefits associated with that.

So, what’s that state feel like? How do I know when I’m in that state? Do I have to put on electrodes to know if I’m meditating?…

No electrodes required (although feel free if you like…)

Let’s look at that altered state found in meditation next.
