Theta Brain Waves Benefits to Increase Your Wealth

Theta brain waves benefits meditation to improve our ability to concentrate, focus, and achieve our goals by solving the problems we find along the way.

Theta Brain Wave Benefits

Meditation is a tool many successful people use to increase their concentration and creativity. Both of these qualities are important to improve our level of wealth. Without the ability to concentrate, it’s not easy to find solutions to problems. We need creativity to think about what we can do to improve our situation and increase the quality of our life.

But meditation alone is difficult for many people. We must be in a peaceful state of mind, focus on emptying our thoughts and stay in that energy for an amount of time. I find meditation to be much more comfortable when I use specific tools to help the process. One of the tools I use is brainwave audios.

Brainwave audios aren’t made for meditation, in and by itself. Its primary use is for treatment of patients that have certain mental conditions that require healing. But I find the benefits of using brainwave audios can significantly help to improve the efficiency of our meditation. Some of the popular brainwaves used for meditation are alpha brainwaves and theta brainwaves.

Become a ‘Super Learner’ with Theta Waves

Four most popular brainwaves are the topic of research and use. You may already know about them and even use brainwave audios yourself. The four brainwaves are beta, alpha, theta, and delta. A short description is that beta waves occur when we are alert, alpha waves occur when we are relaxed, theta waves occur when we are sleeping, and delta waves occur during deep sleep.

Each brainwave occurs at a certain range of frequency:

  • Beta occurs between 14 Hz – 30 Hz
  • Alpha occurs between 8 Hz – 14 Hz
  • Theta occurs between 4 Hz – 8 Hz
  • Delta occurs between 0.5 Hz – 4 Hz

This article focuses on the theta brainwaves benefits. Theta brainwaves are known for having a mix of benefits that the other brainwaves have. In other words, meditating while listening to theta brainwaves can give you benefits similar to listening to the other three brainwaves.

Some of the known benefits of increasing theta brainwaves primarily involve natural self-healing. The mental conditions that allow our body to self-heal also make an excellent environment for our mind to work at its optimum performance. These benefits include increased creativity, improved memory power, enhanced concentration, and an ability to seemingly ‘super learn.’ Analyzing complex situations to find the best solutions becomes more doable when we are in the theta brainwave state.

Favorite self-development techniques become effective when we are in the theta state. Techniques such as affirmations, visualization, and hypnosis have a higher chance to succeed because our brain is not filtering or rejecting the information like it does when we are in the beta (highly alert) state. When we are relaxed (like when we sleep), information that enters our mind becomes easily absorbed. This increase in efficiency becomes a good reason to do our self-affirming work while in the theta state.

How to Enter Theta Brain State

The benefits of theta brainwaves are fantastic, but sadly it’s difficult to enter the theta state through conscious effort alone. Even with the help of techniques and tools, we still need to go through the process of successfully entering the theta state and staying there for a certain amount of time.

One of the ways we can achieve the theta brainwave state is when we are in deep relaxation. Certain practices such as meditation and hypnosis are other ways we can enter the theta brainwave state. That’s why meditation or hypnosis using brainwave audios are a favorite way to achieve the theta state and unlock our ‘hidden’ mental powers. We may also enter this state at when we are free of stress and anxious feelings. Perhaps one of the peak achievements of the human mind is when we enter the theta state (and possibly the delta state) during profound spiritual connection (prayer).

It’s interesting to note that children spend a lot of their waking time in the theta state. Children can be naturally very receptive to new information and have creative expressions. They can learn and absorb information quickly because they aren’t limited by what they already think they know (that adults do when we are in the beta state). It may be connected to the theory of the ‘golden age’ of human brains when it’s the best time to learn, such as language and other skills. I believe we can learn at any age we choose to, but learning from children and being in the theta state is a great idea.

My Favorite Theta Brainwave Audio

The theory behind brainwave audios is that it is a sound that resonates at the frequency of brainwaves. When we listen to the audio, our brain waves resonate to that frequency and vibrate at the same length. There’s no guarantee that we will succeed in entering any state, but it does help to ease the process and condition our brain to be relaxed with each passing day.

I’ve been listening to theta brainwaves recently. Before that, I often listen to alpha brainwaves, and I find it does help me to feel more relaxed and calm when working. There are many brainwave audios you can listen to, some of it is free and some of it you can buy. I like the theta brainwave audios from Thought Elevators that I review here because it’s 30 minutes long and focuses on specific topics, such as improving our wealth. Take a look at the review if you want to try meditating with theta audios.

Meditating using brainwave audios can help to improve our ability to concentrate, focus, and achieve our goals by solving the problems we find along the way. Whether you subscribe to a program or try out using the many free resources online, listening to brainwave audios is an activity you ought to try.

How to Visualize Images in Your Mind Using These 3 Steps

Visualizing can improve the quality of your life. Learn how to visualize images in your mind and some possible obstacles you may find along the way.

How to Visualize Images in Your Mind

While doing research for this article, I found that there are two kinds of people who want to learn how to visualize images in your mind. The first kind are people who can imagine pictures in their head and want to use that skill to improve their performance and reach their goals. The second kind are people who can’t imagine any pictures at all, who may suffer from a condition called ‘aphantasia‘.

This article is for people who can imagine pictures and want to use visualization to improve their well being. I’m able to imagine pictures in my mind, and I’ve always assumed that other people can do that as well. However, it turns out there are people who can’t imagine images, and require specific training and exercises to build that skill from the bottom. This article is not for these people.

Visualization is the ability to imagine images in your mind. You can use this skill for entertainment and relaxing purposes, such as imagining the place you visited on your most recent vacation. It’s a skill you can use to recall memories and past experiences, to relive the feelings or learn from mistakes. What we focus on in this article is using visualization to build a future – to turn your dreams into a reality.

The benefit of visualizing is that you can improve the quality of your life in all areas. There are tools and techniques you can use to help you visualize with efficiency. I will share about the tools I use in a different article. In this article, I want to share about how to visualize images in your mind from the beginning, and some possible obstacles you may find along the way.

1. Choose a Place With Minimum Disturbance

Visualizing requires a fair amount of concentration, especially when you want to visualize a high level of detail. Trying to do visualization in a place that’s crowded with people or with noise isn’t impossible, but it becomes difficult. When you want to visualize, find a place with the least amount of distraction and disturbances so you can concentrate. You may have to arrange with your family (if you have kids) to give you some time alone during your visualization session.

I live in a place that’s relatively quiet, and I spend a lot of time at home. I do a very brief visualization immediately after I wake up to reinforce the message that I have a healthy body. I feel that visualizing combined with positive affirmations does have some effect on my health. I also visualize about what I am going to do that day, and it helps me get a rough image of how the day will proceed.

A peaceful place is important because you may not be able to concentrate for more than a short period (especially if you’re just starting practicing visualization). Our mind is a muscle and if we don’t train it to sustain a thought or image for a long time, then it won’t be able to do it. Our mind is easily disturbed by distractions that take us away from the image we want to see in our heads. A quiet place allows you to calmly return to your visualization whenever you get distracted by other thoughts.

2. Find an Image and Visualize the Image

Find an image that represents what you want to achieve. If your goal is to own an item, then find an image of that item (whether it’s a new laptop, a home, or other material possession). Use images that are the closest to what you want in real life. For example, if your goal is to own a laptop, visit your nearest store and take a photo of the laptop you want to buy. If your goal is building a happy family, find the happiest picture of your family.

Look at the picture, and pay attention to the details. Then close your eyes and build the picture in your imagination. Practice to fill in as much detail as you can from the picture. It will take several sessions of visualization to be able to imagine a detailed image in your mind. You can try it using simple images first before moving on to more complex images with a higher level of detail.

3. Fill In the Details

Visualizing an image you see represents the present. You can use visualization to imagine the future by adding in details that aren’t part of the image yet. Details of the future require more imagination to see because it hasn’t happened in your reality yet. On top of that, if you don’t believe the details you see, it becomes difficult to maintain the visualization for a length of time.

One goal I have is to have a house. My wife and I once saw a house in a residential area on top of a hill and she said that she wants to live in a nice house like the one we saw. Imagining the house is simple, but I haven’t added the details that makes that house our house. I can add in details such as the plants in the garden, the furniture inside the house, the interior design, and how many people are living in it.

Filling in the details of your visualization helps you to see what it would take to make it happen. You probably don’t know yet how to make it happen, but at least you already have an image of where you want to go. Ideas and opportunities will come your way, and you will be able to identify them because you already saw them in your mind.

The three steps above help you to visualize images in your mind. You probably will only be able to do it for a short time in the beginning. With practice, you can do longer visualizations that have a higher amount of detail, clarity, and vividness. There are tools you can use to help you practice visualization. One of the tools I use is the Thought Elevators videos and audios. They don’t have specific images, but they can help push you in the general direction of a high quality life.
