Health & Mental Benefits of Meditation:

So interesting how the brain works and it is amazing to see how science and spirituality are not far from each other.

5 DIFFERENT TYPES OF BRAIN WAVES
5 DIFFERENT TYPES OF BRAIN WAVES

The brain wave spectrum divides into 5 bands with different associated states :

Delta wave:

Frequency limit :1/2 to 4 Hz ; Deep unconscious , intution and insight

Theta wave:

Frequency limit : 4 – 8 Hz ; Subconscious creativity , deep relaxation

Alpha wave:

Frequency limit : 8 – 13 Hz ; “Spacey” and dreamy state , receptive and passive

Beta wave:

Frequency limit : 13 – 30 Hz ; Conscious thought , external focus

Gamma wave:

Frequency limit : 30 – 100 Hz ; Not well understood, but linked to perception and alertness or anxiety

This Is How Brain Waves Contribute To The State of Mind

During successful meditation , the subject typically starts off with high beta(thinking), then experiences more alpha , followed by more theta and finally delta , the deepest level .

After some time , the reverse process takes place , bringing the person back to beta feeling awake and refreshed, sometimes with new insights.

Meditation means the mind is turned back upon itself.

The mind stops all the thought-waves and the world stops.

Your consciousness expands.
