Brain Wave Fequencies
By: Elaine Murray
Brain waves can be measured by an electroencephalograph in cycles per second(CPS).
Beta is fastest level with a frequency between 14-21 CPS.
Alpha is the next (slower) range of vibrations (7-14 CPS).
Theta is a slower brain wave frequency (4-7 CPS).
Delta is the slowest brain wave frequency of all (0.5-4 CPS).
In-depth studies suggest that people using the slower rhythms of the brain increase their ability to: achive desired goals; maintain positive attitude; concentrate better; learn and recall better; and maximize their intuition. Also, greater control of blood pressure, muscle tension, and digestion can be achieved.
Healing occurs at several times the normally expected rate. Effective and constructive control of the mind can lead to psychosomatic health rather than psychosomatic disease. The use of our inner levels triggers intuitive powers and makes problem solving easy by eliminating the guesswork. When one meditates, a person goes through the four major ranges of brain wave frequencies. It has been suggested that: one can overcome insomnia, control their weight, stop smoking, increase their productivity, utilize the intuitive powers, and gain greater peace of mind.
