What are Brainwaves?

Every moment of the day our brains are at work keeping us alive.

Why Are Brainwaves So Important?

Alpha Brainwaves

Alpha Brain Waves are brain waves within the documented frequency range of 8 Hz to 12 Hz on an E.E.G. and were the first brainwave frequency range to be discovered.  In 1908, an Austrian research psychiatrist was the first individual to find “brain waves.”  He happened to have found the range of brain waves cycling at a rate of 8 Hz to 12 Hz per second.  He named them Alpha Waves (“Alpha” translates to “first” in Greek) due to the fact that they were the first brainwave range to be found and observed in an electroencephalograph (E.E.G.).

Thousands of brainwave researchers have taken the time to learn more about our brainwave frequencies and states of consciousness.  Researchers have found that Alpha Brain Waves are associated with states of peace and relaxation.  Not everyone even has Alpha Brain Waves due to the fact that they diminish when you get stressed out, nervous, or tense.  If this is the case, your brain will shift to a fast-paced state of mind consisting of Beta Brain Waves…

Throughout the day we all go through a series of brain activity. All day we manifest this energy that helps us to think, reason and examine our decisions. Your state of mind is directly affected by your brainwave activity. Your state of mind is the most important tools that you have for your success. If you feel good you are able to make decisions and make a good impression on the world. If you are in a lousy state no matter how good your intentions you will not be very effective in expressing yourself.
