Exploring Energy Waves in Meditation.

Often in the waves of change, we discover our true direction.”

Sweeping energies.

Feeling the waves of energy flow through us in meditation doesn’t always make us aware of the brain’s neural oscillations that direct electromagnetic energy to the rest of the body. 

Allow the energy to invite you to flow with the energy and move into deeper meditative states. This is part of the learning process of meditation “surfing” and exploration of how the self responds to different techniques. Just as much as we recognize the physical sensations of relaxation, for example, there is an illusive energetic component that operates in the background that has significant effects on our perception of the session. 

Catching the wave.

At different stages of meditation, the energy waves in the brain change.  Neural connections synchronize energy impulses. Slower waves induce a sleepy tired state and faster energy waves invite alertness and more active brain states. 

Alpha brain states mark the beginning of the meditation and a calm state. The next brain energy wave is Beta, greater sense of awareness and concentration.  Theta states activate automated tasks like folding items, walking and any repetitive movements ie swimming that let us “temporarily” switch off.  Gamma releases more positive emotional states and allows the body to release depressive states. And the last is Delta. This is where deep sleep takes place.
