Theta brain waves range between 3.5 Hz to 7.0 Hz, below Alpha. Unlike Beta, which is associated with the conscious mind, Theta brain waves are produced by the subconscious mind.
Your mind produces Theta brain waves when you dream in your sleep and during the Rapid Eye Movement (REM) part of the sleep cycle. About 60% of your sleep time is spent in Theta brainwaves. You also slip into Theta during deep meditation, hypnosis or relaxation. If you quiet and slow-down your mind further during Alpha, you’ll naturally go into Theta.
Theta brain waves enable you to go deep into your subconscious mind. This is where your long-term memories and experiences, creativity (the subconscious is the source of all your creativity and inspiration), deep spiritual connection and any emotional "baggage" is kept. Theta brain waves are also very important in deep healing of the mind or body.
with Theta Brainwaves
Theta brain waves are important because they enable you to directly access and influence your subconscious mind. By doing so, you bypass your conscious mind.
You see, the conscious mind often acts as a "filter" and sometimes prevents you from changing your thought patterns and negative thinking. This makes it difficult to change your attitudes and negative thought patterns.
In contrast, the subconscious mind blindly accepts any statement or affirmation that you give it, without question, and begins to act on it immediately.
So, it’s much easier to clear any negative thinking, thought patterns or attitudes that you may want to change, and to install new, desirable thinking and attitudes as part of your personal development and growth.
In fact, that’s the basis behind self-help techniques such as subliminal messages and hypnosis. These self-help techniques work by bypassing your conscious mind and installing positive statements and affirmations directly into your subconscious mind.
Researchers discovered that, during deep meditation, the presence and amplitude (a measure of how strong your brainwaves are) of the theta brainwaves produced also increased. The deeper the meditation, the stronger the theta brain waves.
It’s through theta brain waves that people achieve their strongest spiritual connection.
Some researchers believed that it was possible to accelerate the many years that meditators spend training their minds through meditation.
This led to the development of many self-help products and techniques. These self help products claimed that they were able to help "short-cut" the years of meditation and achieve the bliss, peacefulness and depth sought after in meditation (an "instant Zen experience") as well as other health and mental benefits associated with meditation.
At the same time, with better control of the mind and its brain waves, you would be able to handle situations much better, with the calm and composed demeanor of an "enlightened Zen Master".
Despite what many people think, the subconscious mind is the source of all creative ideas, inspiration and that “ah-ha” moments. That’s why you always hear artists, writers and other creative-type people talk about "finding inspiration".
This also applies to scientists and researchers. The typical image of researchers is that they spend all day and night in a lab trying to create new discoveries.

In fact, many of the most creative scientists in history are aware of the importance of the subconscious mind. The greatest achievements of Albert Einstein, Marconi, Thomas Edison and many others have actually come about after an insight or inspiration from their subconscious mind.
Clearly, the ability to use the power of the subconscious mind is one of the most important factors in determining the success of great scientists, researchers, artists, writers, etc. Imagine how much more effective you could be if you knew how to go to theta and use the power of your subconscious mind to solve your problems and challenges.
When Theta brainwaves are dominant in your mind, you’re temporarily disconnected from your body. So, if you wake up during the theta part of your sleep cycle, you won’t remember anything.
Have you ever experienced lying down to sleep at night and the next thing you know, it’s already morning and you’ve overslept past your waking time? If so, then you probably woke up when your mind is producing Theta brainwaves.
It’s important to note that, as good and impressive Theta brain waves are, the other brain waves are equally as important. You need the right combination of all the brain waves to fully master your mind and life.
If you work in Theta brainwaves, you may have a very deep, blissful and profound meditation session, but because Theta brainwaves are subconscious, you won’t be able to remember it. You’ll wake up feeling as if you’ve learnt something, like a nagging thought at the back of your mind, but you won’t be able to remember it.
Working in Alpha alone without Theta will result in a nice relaxing session, a sense of detachment, and perhaps even an expanded awareness, but you won’t be able to receive the real depth, insight, creativity and spirituality that you can only get through theta brain waves.
Clearly, both Alpha and Theta brainwaves must be present. Alpha is the link or bridge that draws the information from Theta (subconscious) to Beta (conscious mind), where the message can be processed, interpreted, remembered and used.
You probably realize by now that all the four brain wave patterns are required to master the power of your mind and achieve your goals. The key is to ensure that you’re always in the optimal state of mind for the situation that you’re in.
Now, you know why you need to Master your Brain Waves to build the Life of your Dreams.
