Training brain waves...
The day I knew about it was a crucial day in my life.
A whole new world of exploration opened upon me.
Since I was a child I had suffered some kind of epilepsy. I never suffered convulsions but I got some kind of epilepsy where I just became absent. I just seemed to disconnect unknowingly from this world and reality.
I don't remember it but I was told that my condition was serious.
I must have had around 7 years old...
After some lunch breaks, while walking in line formation back to class it came a moment when we all had to turn right to enter the classroom. What happened to me? I just kept walking until I hit the wall.
An EEG study revealed an anomaly in my left side of the brain. I received treatment and apparently was cured.
Now I can control the moment I apparently am on the verge of an unusual brain behavior.
Later I found out the apparent disease was not as unfortunate as it seemed.
And it all pointed towards a fabulous and mysterious realm...that of awareness.
Does our reality is made up of outside influences?
Or on the contrary...
To what extent do our thoughts, beliefs and mindset play a role in shaping everyday circumstances?
On my personal quest towards the answer I became aware of one of the most basic elements I live with every second of my life:
I didn't know that we all experience at least 4 basic frequencies.
(Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta)
(Much less that training brain waves was a possibility)
I was ignorant that each one is measured in cycles per second (Hz).
I couldn't imagine that each has its own set of characteristics.
And I was far from suspecting that each frequency represents always a specific level of brain activity and...
The most important..a unique state of consciousness!
So my trip towards developing awareness started with the simple knowledge and realization of the basic states of consciousness.
Now I understood.
When in Beta I tend to feel...
How can I be sure I may be in Beta?
I just experience...
What voice do I hear? Nagging critical reasoning.
When in Alpha I tend to feel...
How can I be sure I may be in Alpha?
I just experience...
Images & visuals
What voice do I hear? Intuition.
When in Theta I tend to feel...
How can I be sure I may be in Theta?
I just experience...
REM (Rapid Eye Movement) dream state
Flow of ideas/creativity
What voice do I hear? Silent voice.
Here I couldn't help but remembering that bizarre middle zone where everything can happen, the mythical void.
It even reminded me the famous modern saga of our time, the twilight zone.
It is at the Alpha-Theta border (from 7Hz to 8Hz).
Between Alpha (the entrance to sleep and dreaming) and Delta (the waking from deep sleep).
Where a sense of deep spiritual connection and unity with the universe can be experienced.
Where your mind’s most deep-seated programs reside.
Where you experience great inspiration, profound creativity, vivid visualizations, and exceptional insight.
Where the optimal dimension for visualization, mind programming and using the creative power of your genius begins.
Where you consciously create your reality.
At this frequency...
When in Delta I tend to feel...
Loss of bodily awareness
Awareness fully detached
How can I be sure I may be in Delta?
I just experience...
Deep (dreamless) sleep
The realm of unconsciousness
What voice do I hear? The universal mind and collective unconscious.
Up to this point it all started to make sense to me.
Without knowing, I was on my way towards my first steps on training brain waves.
It was unavoidable…
Anyone can be on any of these channels or frequencies at any given moment.
CAN TRAINING BRAIN WAVES REALLY HELP US CONTROL OUR REALITY?
And I started to realize that for any given person to experiment paranormal phenomena he or she would have to be at least on alpha state.
For me, it is very difficult to connect with the supernatural on beta.
For me, brainwaves could be something like conduits of awareness.
So awareness moves between two opposing and complimentary forces...
Which can help creating reality.
This took me to another important realization...
By the curious interaction of two equal forces...
Just two numbers!
The virtual reality depended on these two simple elements?
So perception and awareness perceived according to a dominant number or force.
Which reminded me a very famous form of communication...
The Morse code...
Which communicates a message (a reality) through the interaction of two kind of electrical impulses...
Which gives the receiver of the message a sense and perception of reality.
How funny that the receiver could construct a sense of materiality depending on the interaction of two forces and the one which predominates.
These made me see another aspect which influences awareness and perception.
So I began to connect the dots...
Actually operates something like this?
And our brain...
Which works with electric impulses...
Functions actually something like this?
Then Training brain waves...
Taught me to work out the nervous system and their electric impulses...
And start learning how to control more disorganized energy...
Like a chaotic sequence of numbers like this...
Which in the end depends on frequencies...
Long wavelengths...short wavelengths.
To more organized and controlled energy frequencies.
Which number do I want to predominate?
Which of the two forces do I want to prevail?
On which numerical sequence do you want to have more control?
Which sequence of numbers would you want to appear more?
00001 or 11110?
0 decides one reality.
1 determines another truth.
So at a very basic level, the frequency (cycles per second/numerical sequence) that dominates dictates if we experience beta, alpha, delta or theta, hence the respective and according reality.
In the end all this took me to another area of awareness exploration.
Do you remember that energy IS attention?
Common knowledge says brain waves dictate how deep you sleep.
I believe also that if you intend to control your degree of sleep you control intentionally brain waves.
It works both ways.
Once again the interaction of two forces.
Waking state versus dreaming state...
Beta versus Alpha/Theta
1 versus 0
And then I realized something else...
Here I couldn't help but remember my brain's left hemisphere frequency anomaly and my epilepsy condition.
Which made me recall how once a friend of mine, which moved in shamanic circles, confessed to me that the shamans consider epilepsy a blessed disease!
Now it was clearer to me...
Shamans are known to make trips of consciousness and awareness.
Many accomplish them through the use of hallucinogenic drugs, and others don't, like Don Juan, Carlos Castaneda and the shamans of ancient Mexico.
And guess what is one of the arts through which they learn to master awareness (and become experts at training brain waves)…
So their lifetime training is to expand perception and awareness so they can witness other worlds and realities.
They strive to wake up in dreams.
Waking up in dreams is one way to start training brainwaves.
I found out that according to the frequency your brain is on then your degree of consciousness, awareness and awakening level in dreams.
So in short, you experience any kind of reality, including paranormal phenomena, according to your brain waves.
Sorcerers of ancient Mexico believed that if you save enough energy, or personal power, your attention becomes more conscious in dreams.
So I learned that attention could be trained while dreaming.
And fortunately one could keep on working out concentration and training brain waves while awake.
Eastern traditions believe meditation helps you handle energy and attention more efficiently.
In the same fashion western tradition has learned how developing relaxation abilities helps us develop and handle higher and higher levels of energy and attention.
So I believe dreaming and meditation have the power to work out your nervous system and determine how you handle electric impulses and brain waves.
This way your nervous system becomes more able at training brain waves…
And more ready to handle energy...
And more sensible to other energies and doors to other perceptions and realities.
Up to this point I couldn't help but remember another interesting factor at play...
Recalling this film made me aware again about the two forces at play...
I believe that the mind is one force...
And the physical universe the other force.
According to this consciousness and awareness interpret.
But when the mind confronts a vacuum, then there is only one force at play because the other force (physical reality) apparently doesn't exist...
Just pure absence of sensory stimuli.
So awareness constructs from the vacuum and creates a reality.
The mind apparently starts hallucinating in order to keep the game on between the two forces.
The shamans of ancient Mexico cultivated inner silence as a way to produce a sort of mind vacuum and stop interpretation.
So reality changes that way.
Meditation also helps eventually to stop inner dialogue and create a vacuum.
When you meditate with your eyes closed you create that blackness, but the vacuum can't be accomplished because the inner dialogue fills it.
When the mind stops, then there is only awareness and the vacuum, and from there on the game starts.
What reality will be perceived?
Only awareness decides.
(Here training brain waves is unavoidable)
And talking about leaps of awareness...
I also couldn't help remembering what for me has been a great metaphor.
At this point you surely must have understood the vital role the two forces play on our lives, be it yin and yang, light and darkness, electrical impulses (like the morse code), basic frequencies (long and short wavelengths), numerical sequences (0 and 1), or the mind and the vacuum.
So here we are aware of this primordial binary code...
Which inevitably reminds me of this modern myth...
And what happens when the mind's interpretation system ceases to exist and loses its power.
A new construction of reality appears.
And you develop the power to perceive more and see new worlds and things.
More freed energy equals more freed attention to perceive.
Do you remember Theta?
Beta versus Alpha/Theta
1 versus 0
The interaction we can make between these two forces determine the kind of reality we can be aware of and explore.
What new worlds and mysteries await for your consciousness and awareness if you develop the art of training brainwaves?
