I?ve been amused by what we human beings can innovate through science. But truly, do we really innovate or we just get awake to what already exists through science? What does it study, observe, experiment? Science is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about nature, world, universe. Obviously, through science, we are testing and measuring what our consciousness can perceive.
Let?s take a look at the science of brainwaves ? the language of the brain. Recently a research by the Toyohashi University of Technology in Japan, issued a device that can read people?s minds by detecting their brainwaves, which will be easily operated through smartphone apps in very near future. Are you aware of what this means? There is a device that can read your mind! Gosh, I guess we could have saved many women from burning, accused of witchcraft if this would have been published in the 16th century:)

Seriously, what has changed from 16th century or before to 21st century if not our awareness and consciousness?
We can not see the ?Big Picture? yet but we are coming closer to it, especially after EEG (A device that can record brain waves) was found in the 19th century we were able to segment different types of ?brain waves?.
The measurement of electrical activity in the brain and its recording as a visual trace on paper or oscilloscope is called electroencephalography ? EEG and is used for tracking and recording of various brain wave patterns, which change according to different brain stages and mental activities.
In the beginning, there were only 4 observations of brain waves (Different sources provide different frequency values, below are average Hz?s):
Beta Waves (12?27 Hz): Our brain waves or so-called ?vibes? in between the 12?27 Hz when we are awake, alert, attentive, solving problems, decision making, critical thinking, action, and goal oriented. In between these frequencies ?judgment? is at it?s high, more usage of Left Hemisphere which represents our Analytical Mind. Optimal Beta waving can support us to finish tasks, run away when we are exposed to danger, think faster. Nevertheless, exposing too much beta waves results in stress and chronic stress harms our wellness state. Beta waves can be stimulated with coffee, energy drinks, being in sync with vibrations that resonate in this wavelength.
Alpha Waves (8?12 Hz): When we detect brainwaves between 8?12 Hz frequency, we call this ?alpha?. Alpha is the frequency of our conscious thinking and subconscious mind. We are awake but relaxed. Tranquil, pleasant, almost like ?floating? feeling is dominant at alpha waves. Not much of thinking is done in this state, more of right brain hemisphere ? Emotional Mind characteristics are observed. Anytime you have insight or inspiration our brains produce more Alpha waves than usual. We can reach Alpha Waves through relaxation, meditation, deep breathing, any kind of plants, drinks or vibrations that resonate in this wavelength support to takes us there. (?Could there be any corellation between age and brain waves?)
Theta Waves (3?8 Hz): Theta Brain Waves occur in sleeping states, rarely during deep meditation. In theta, we are in a dream; vivid imagery, intuition and information beyond normal conscious awareness. Feeling deep, raw emotions belongs to these waves as well as hypnosis. Right brain hemisphere gets more active. However, too much vibing in this frequency might cause depression, melancholy or impulsivity.
Delta Waves (0?3 Hz): These are the slowest waves, experienced in a deep, dreamless sleep and in very deep, transcendental meditation or coma. This is where deep healing and regeneration takes place. Delta waves are absent in awake healthy adults but are physiological and normal in awake children under the age of 13. ( ?Could there be any corellation to Jewish ritual to Bar Mitzvah ?)
Later on 20th & 21st century another brainwave (could there be more that we are not aware of yet?), mental activity with different qualities than above 4 has been discovered:
Gamma Waves (27 Hz and up): Predominant Gamma frequency is at around 40 Hz and this neural activity is by far the most interesting and anything beyond these waves. Gamma brainwaves are considered the brain?s optimal frequency of functioning as the whole neurons fire up in synch, at the same time. The 40 Hz gamma binds all senses in perception. Gamma brainwaves are usually very weak in normal people, mostly Tibetan Buddhists, martial art masters, highly elevated mystics, ascended spiritual masters can vibrate at this frequency.
When it?s activated, state of ?Loving Kindness? ? increased levels of compassion, feelings of happiness, and at the same time peak performance mental abilities come out. These vibes ?unite? the reality that the object is perceiving. This is a state of mental awakening. Interestingly whales and dolphins also operate in this frequency range.
When someone vibrates at Gamma brain frequency, they have rapid and vivid memory recall, these are the people who can remember word by word what you said, including what you were wearing, where it was said, even to the state that which song was playing at the back or the movie was playing. They have hyper-sharp focus in the moment. This is called ?in the moment, in the flow, being in now ? in the zone? state.
Having high amounts of Gamma Brainwave activity has been associated with:
Having high levels of intelligence
Having high amounts of self-control
Having greater than average feelings of natural happiness.
Increased awareness through your five senses
The real questions are: Which brainwave is the best? Can shifting brain waves mean ?spiritual awakening?? Do we have to be a ?monk? to awake to ?love, compassion and kindness? or over the age of 30 is doable ??
All different brain waves are an indication of different states of ?being?. You are free to tap into different states at times of need. If you are sick and need sleeping to heal ( lowering your brain waves), there is no point of trying to drink coffee or take stimulants to keep you awake. Every vibration has its? benefits per one?s needs. Each of us can use brainwave entrainment to achieve different results. You may want to target a specific brainwave frequency range to help you relax. On the other hand, you may want to increase your creative energy, improve your memory, deepen your sleep or get better results when playing a sport.
If you are looking into higher your consciousness states and how you attain a different perception of the world the world, asking your self ?What is the meaning of my life? Why am I here? What is my life mission? What am I destined to live? How to be happy? How can I have peace within even in the middle of chaos? How can I be more loving and kind?? it might be the time for a consciousness shift for you.
Here are 3 things you can do to support you to shift your brain frequency to Gamma and above (non are scientifically proven yet):
- You become who you hang out with: Find one or more people who are awakened to love, kindness and compassion, people who are vibrating at Gamma frequencies. Add them on social meadia, read their blogs & books, hang out, meditate, breath with them. Learn from them, the way they think, the way they perceive the World, model what they eat, drink, do and don?t do.
- Use brainwave entrainments technologies: Technologies like neuro & biofeedback, new devices, and gadgets that helps us to synchronize to desired brain wavelengths are called ?Brain Wave Entrainments?. Light, color psychology, sound, vibration, energy is used to create this synchronization.
- Consume high vibrational, nutritional superfoods: Superfoods are mostly plant-based, seldom fish & dairy. Spirulina, Moringa Oleifera, Matcha, Raw Cacao, all-berry family are the most nutritional superfoods. Interestingly most of the above superfoods were also used for ?spiritual ceremonies? in the ancient times for ?spiritual awakening?.
I don?t think it?s a coincidence. It?s almost like science is catching up with the language of the soul. We need to follow the signs to notice the synchronicities in our lives which will lead our brain neurons to fire up in sync with everything around us. I guess that is the ?Ultimate Luc(k)y Mode ?! ? I can feel every living thing.
