Alpha

Alpha Waves - The Gateway to Relaxation and Creativity

When you begin to relax, brain activity slows from the rapid patterns of beta into the more gentle waves of alpha. In alpha you experience a liberating sense of peace and well-being. Pioneers in biofeedback research report that subjects enjoy what Lester Fehmi, PhD calls the "subtle and ineffable" alpha experience. Joe Kamiya, PhD theorizes that its pleasure, may come from the fact that alpha "represents something like letting go of anxieties." Alpha is the gateway into deeper states of consciousness. When alpha waves are strongly present, logical left-brain activity — which normally acts as a filter or censor to the subconscious--drops its guard. This allows the more intuitive, emotional and creative depths of mind to become increasingly influential.

The Alpha state is an intensely pleasurable and relaxed state of consciousness essential to stress reduction and high levels of creativity. Artists, musicians and athletes are prolific alpha producers; so are intuitive persons, and so was Albert Einstein. With Brain Sync binaural beat frequencies you can begin experiencing the benefits of alpha biofeedback training right now.
