When it comes to learning about brains, and in particular brain waves, people often tend to lose interest in the information regarding the subject. Good thing this isn’t going to be an article about our brain, but fortunately for you it will give you tremendous comprehension on the metaphysical nourishment obtained from accessing altered states of consciousness.
If you have consumed cannabis you have certainly experienced, while under the influence, an altered state of consciousness . If you had tried the amazonian brew Ayahuasca or the psychedelic mushroom psilocybin, then you had taken further exploration into your basic and natural capacity of accessing and experiencing altered states of consciousness.
People have been using these organic and spirit-filled plants for thousands of years to naturally induce a change in perception. Its ingestion produces a breakdown of mental and emotional barriers, whereby it provides conditions for one to strengthen their innate spiritual connectedness to all. It appears that many people turn towards psychedelic experiences, brought upon by such unique substances, as a method of obtaining a glimpse at spiritual phenomena that is otherwise difficult to earn on their own. Through it much wisdom can be gained that may help one learn how to be a better person and treat others kindly. Unfortunately, these plants only give you snippets of what you are capable of reproducing on your own, and so they only serve as a tool.
The underlying effect these plants induce is a tuning of your sense of spacial perception by slowing down the vibrations of your brain waves. Like attracts like, and so, if you are in a beta brain wave you will experience the equivalent lifestyle. The moment you improve your lifestyle, your brain wave pattern changes.
Found in Jasmuheen’s book “Divine Nutrition: The Food of Gods” is an illuminating description of divine nourishment by learning what the different brain waves are, and what techniques can aid in adjusting yourself to nourish off of a Theta – Delta lifestyle. She is a Breatharian, which means she has given up consumption of material food and liquid. Instead, she lives solely on nourishment produced by love and light that are accessible through the Theta – Delta wave lifestyle. I highly recommend owning a copy, in case you become hungry for more information after reading this article.
The Different Brain Waves
Society, what a busy model it represents in the 21st century. Fortunately, describing the Beta brain wave is easy as plenty of us have or even still experience it. This is a brain wave pattern of 30 to 14 cycles per second and those who operate in its zone experience poverty, violence, social injustice, emotional highs and emotional lows, and is generally a field of man-made, self inflicted chaos.
This brain wave pattern – Beta field – is promoted by TV, social networking like Facebook, institutionalized schools and government policies. It is where victim consciousness thrives, traumas are created and stored without proper healing and release, and our basic struggle for survival suffocates our passion for life.
“The Alpha brain wave, is a field that beats at 13 to 8 cycles per second. The Alpha field reveals the Zen of Life, allowing us down time, to chill out and re-set the direction of our life, to assess the imbalances and re-address them hopefully for the good of all. Time in the Alpha zone improves our health and happiness levels and is step one in the direct and conscious feeding of our soul.”
Theta and Delta brain waves are deeper wave patterns that will be touched upon in a sequel to this article. Taking steps, in first getting familiar with the Alpha field by learning to access it regularly will eventually lead to natural Theta – Delta access.
“The first field control tool that we have is our attitude, where we change our mind set by asking: do we wish to absorb or do we wish to radiate? As every living thing radiates energy, when we absorb these energies indiscriminately from the world our inner field key-note changes – sometimes in a way that nurtures us and sometimes in a way that drains us – and it is up to us to choose how we wish to be affected and what we wish to absorb.”
[Quote from page 33]
As far as I understand, and in my honest opinion, moving from the Beta field to Alpha field, and consequently satisfying a fragment of our hunger, is solely up to the attitude we choose to hold at this present moment.
The Hunger of Busy-Beta
When we are in the Beta field we hunger for everything. We hunger for success in the business world, we hunger for acceptance in society, we hunger for appreciation by friends and family. We hunger to fill up this void inside of us that is not physical but rather a hunger of the spirit.
It is a hunger for Wholeness and Union. The action itself, of placing food inside our body is an unconscious act of attempting to attain union with the material in our possession. It is just like that saying a lover would say to its partner “I love you so much, I just want to eat you up!”.
Have you felt content in your life? That same sensation that all life is simple and the first thing you choose to do is go out on a journey in search of a stream and marvel at nature and study the living forest of life?
An attitude like that sheds a hefty amount of baggage off your shoulders and back; has you feeling like walking barefoot from now on and forever, as the feeling of earth nourishes your feet.
“A person who meditates every day has far greater sensitivity to and capacity to magnetize the Alpha – Theta – Delta waves than someone who constantly engages in Beta field activities and is never in stillness.” [Quote from page 34]
“A beta field person can increase their capacity to see, hear, feel and be nourished by the gifts of the other zones through a simple change in lifestyle that includes meditation, mind mastery and maybe even yoga.” [Quote from page 34]
I believe enough has been said and described pertaining the Beta field, Alpha field and how to improve your lifestyle by satisfying basic inner hungers. It begins with tuning inwards and asking questions, like: “Who am I? Where am I going in life? What am I? how do I improve my communication with my spirit?” Questions like those help access Alpha field nourishment, though it is when you start accessing Theta – Delta fields that you receive answers and soul satiety.
And finally, a quote worth sharing:
“Perhaps too much intellectual knowledge
may bind the door of our heart.”
