How to Easily Reach “Alpha Brainwave” Consciousness Within 3 Minutes or Less! This is relaxation! If you are looking to enter that elusive Alpha brainwave state of mind, then the techniques discussed within this article will definitely be useful to you.
The average human beings mind operates within the “Beta” frequency range during normal waking hours. This frequency is typically more than 14 Hz. If you manage to reduce the frequency to between 8-13 Hz, then you have entered what is known as Alpha level.
Alpha brainwave activity can induce amazing levels of creativity, greater relaxation, higher learning and athletic abilities, and even an improved immune system. Those rare times you have really felt like you are “in the zone” — where everything seemed to be running in your favor — your brain was probably operating at Alpha level.
Alpha brainwave activity can naturally occur during long periods of meditation, yoga, drowsiness and sleep. But what if you wanted to enter the Alpha state whenever you needed to? What if you could reach Alpha whenever you command, almost instantaneously? Wouldn’t that be incredible?
Well it is possible, and you can do this without spending hours each day meditating or sitting in awkward yoga positions.
Counting down is one of the original methods introduced by José Silver (author of “The Silva Method”). It is fairly simple, easy and very effective. To use this technique, get in a comfortable position and close your eyes. Take a deep breath, breathe out and relax your body as much as you consciously can. Now count down, slowly from 100 to zero. It can be one number every second, but slower is better. Visualizing the number can help focus the mind.
That’s all there is to it. Once you have reached zero, your mind will already be in the alpha state. Of course, counting backwards from 100 will take a while, but it will get you used to reaching the alpha level. After time, you can reduce the number to 50, then 25, then 10, 5, and eventually 3.
Once you get really good at this, you can reach alpha in normal day to day situations. You won’t necessarily need to close your eyes and relax your body like you originally had to. Your mind will be conditioned enough that you should be able to reach alpha by letting your eyes relax and vision blur, and counting down from 3. Some people don’t even need to count down; the action becomes instinctive, and almost instantaneous.
Can you imagine having this kind of ability? It is more than achievable with the countdown method. However, it will take patience. Daily practice is needed. Twice a day for at least 20 minutes is recommended. As mentioned, you’ll need to start with at least 100 countdown, and perhaps reduce the number every 7-10 days. After 4 or 5 weeks, you should be able to enter into the alpha brainwave state with ease.
This will become incredibly useful in day to day life. Entering the “alpha state” will help you in numerous situations, enabling you to stay calm in the face of chaos, tap into your deepest creative mind, or maintain laser sharp focus and clarity of mind.
