The human brain is an electrochemical organ with different frequencies of waves. The five main categories of brainwaves are Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta, and Gamma. The Theta brainwave is what is of interest to us right now. These are measured from 4 to 7 Hertz. This is the frequency range at which the brain is in the border between conscious and unconscious.
When the brain is in the theta state, the person feels absolutely calm and deeply relaxed. It is also a very powerful state that lets you mentally disengage from actions while doing them. The brain typically produces theta brainwaves right before falling asleep or just after waking up. This state is sought after because of the flow of creative ideas that are produced when one is in this state. It is also known to improve learning capacity.
You have probably already guessed how one can enter the theta state. Yes, it’s through meditation. Mentioned below is a popular technique:
Step 1: Find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed for 20 to 30 minutes.
Step 2: Sit in a comfortable position and close your eyes. Take deep breaths.
Step 3: Visualize yourself as a small ball of white light in the center of your chest.
Step4: Make the ball, i.e. yourself travel downwards to your stomach. As you move, gather the consciousness of the different organs you are going through. This is making you as the ball becomes bigger.
Step 5: Go further down to your thighs, knees, and ankles. Go through the bottom of your feet and enter the ground below it. Go deeper into the earth and find a rock.
Step6: Attach a rope to the rock.
Step 7: Go back toward your body while holding the end of the rope. Enter your body through the feet.
Step 8: Move up to the chest through the ankles, knees, and stomach all the while gathering body consciousness.
Step 9: Now travel upward through the neck and jaw into your skull and stop at the top of your head.
Step 10: Exit the top of your head and go a few feet above your body. Keep travelling upward as far as you want to.
Step 11: Go past the earth’s layers and go beyond the universe. You will see a bright light in the distance, and you have to enter into it.
Step 12: Allow the light to go into you. Let it absorb you.
