After a few threads here mentioned spirituality, biofields, sleep and meditation, I’ve become interested in how brainwaves affect the subliminals and the acceptance of subliminals. Keep in mind, these are merely observations that I hope will start some interaction.
Which brainwaves would be best to have when you’re listening to subliminals?
We can exclude Beta and Alpha, since Beta is beneficial to your conscious mind and Alpha isn’t the best learning state (it’s more for intuition).
Delta (deep sleep) can have amazing healing properties, provided you can stay awake, but has little effect on the acceptance of subliminal messages.
That brings us to Theta. Now Theta is the most promising candidate. If we look at the research done by Bruce Lipton (thank you @Anonymanas for pointing me there) there’s an indication that young children learn better because they spend a lot of time in Theta. Also, during hypnosis and certain stages of sleep, we go there as well. Which is why he recommends running suggestions as we fall asleep. Makes me wonder if a subliminal like Limitless could be made with suggestions to spend more time in Theta and gain the learning potential of children. Also makes me wonder what the effects would be with people where the default state is non-Beta. Would they function differently in society?
In any way, it would seem Theta is best for listening to subliminals, so listening for a bit while falling asleep or during meditation may help subliminals be more effective. Any thoughts on this? Or am I just talking to myself?
I know you shouldn’t edit the tracks, but that doesn’t exclude running some brainwave entrainment separately.
So what about the more recently discovered brainwaves, most of them coming from research done on Tibetan monks?
There’s Gamma (and HyperGamma), very good for those interested in mystical and spiritual awareness. Curious how those monks would generate a Delta pattern when their minds were blank, but as soon as they were asked to do a loving-kindness meditation, their brains all went to Gamma, at around the same frequency as the planet’s core.
Probably not for subliminals, unless they deal with higher awareness or extrasensory abilities, where reaching these brainwaves could be considered the action one needs to take.
Next, Epsilon. You’d think you couldn’t go much deeper than deep sleep, but it would seem that Epsilon functions like a carrier for Lambda.
And those, to me, are the most intriguing ones. Lambda is the highest discovered frequency brainwave, and yet is lives/exists in the lowest discovered brainwaves. Wholeness, mystical experiences, out-of-body experiences. I get it, it’s an enigma wrapped in a mystery. Probably not the best for subliminals. Very cool accomplishment to have though.
I left SMR and Mu out of this, since they deal with movement (or lack thereof).
