TOPIC:  Alpha Meditation

I will bring a CD player and stereo speakers to allow us to experience the effects of Alpha brainwave entrainment…

Alpha meditation is any form of meditation that increases your alpha brainwaves. The cells in the brain or neurons use electricity to communicate with each other. This can be measured and are called brainwaves and measured in Hertz units. There are 5 main frequencies of brain waves that can be identified: Gamma (38-42), Beta (13-38), Alpha (8-12), Theta (4-8) and Delta (0-4).

Alpha waves naturally increase when you close your eyes, are daydreaming or in a relaxed state. They are the first stage of a bridge between the subconscious and conscious mind and can lead to deeper levels of healing, health, happiness, creativity and success.

Alpha waves produce the inspiration from your subconscious, where creativity and sudden insights comes from. Alpha meditation can be used to unlock solutions for issues that you will not find in your conscious state. You no doubt have read about the many benefits of alpha meditation and how it can have a positive impact on your life. So you now want to get started and experience the benefits for yourself.

There are many ways you can do an alpha meditation. Here is a list of techniques you could use:

  • Deep relaxation

  • Visualization

  • Breathing
