Beta(12hz-40hz) is our everyday waking state of mind. It’s what we use in most of the day and it isn’t conducive to deep learning or relaxation. Just imagine driving all day in first gear. Your engine will be crying but you had hardly be going. That is what we do with our bodies. There is an old expression that goes “Music doth soothe the savage beast”, or something to that effect. It turns out there is more truth to that adage than you may expect. Scientist, through extensive studies into brain wave direction, have shown that specific frequencies could be joined to generate anxiety relief music. Utilizing this technology, digital music makers have created CDs and MP3 libraries of music made to provide health benefits including strain relief, improved sleep habits, and mental focus. The beats are generated through an unique audio mixing technique using different frequencies for every single ear. They are made to alter the listener’s brain wave activity and they do this very effectively. By relaxing in a quiet environment, closing your eyes and wearing headphones these beats may be used to create virtually any brainwave pattern needed. No, it’s not a question of telepathy where head of a man has been controlled by omharmonics and certain mysterious actions. The thought leader just affects the followers by the dint of his or her art in a specific field. If you’ve got to adopt a particular way of living to get calm and enjoyment in your life surely you would look to a spiritual leader – the person who is actually a excellent source of inspiration for you to really follow a peaceful way of living. One way to get rid of that small stuff is really to add prayer and meditation to your day. This idea is not just for religious people, but for spiritual individuals, as well. It is often said that prayer is only us talking to God, while meditation is listening to God in the quiet. It is hard to silence our minds, particularly in the early phases of meditation (and sometimes even in the latter stages), so do not try to suppress the ideas that come up. Just let them pass through your thoughts. Picture yourself waiting for traffic to slow down so that one may cross the road. Eventually, there will be a break within the traffic and you may have the ability to cross. There’s an old expression that goes something like this: Trying to control the thoughts in your mind during meditation is similar to wrestling with a pig within the mud. Two things are achieved: first, you get dirty; and second, the pig likes it. Now transfer your knowledge down along the upper arms, lower arms to each of the fingers, one by one. After That, move back up and move up across the neck and throat. Focus your knowledge on various parts of the face starting from the jaws, cheeks, mouth, eyes, temple and ultimately, the forehead. Let your consciousness stay on the head for sometime. Now move down your body doing the meditation within the inverse order. Another level of mediation is to continue counting your breaths over and over again, one through ten. Each inhale and exhale together is counted as just one number. The goal of this would concentrate on one thought only, that is the breathing. As soon as you have mastered the counting concentration, the next level of meditation allows you to concentrate on one specific idea utterly and without distractions or wandering.
