Brainwaves & States of Consciousness

Each and every thought or memory you have has a corresponding brainwave - an electrical signal that passes through your brain and triggers an appropriate memory, thought, response or action.

The goal of the Quantum Mind training program is to first help you learn to recognize exactly what combination of brainwaves and corresponding mental state you are experiencing. From this you will develop the ability to create any combination of brainwaves at will -- including higher states of consciousness, and any combination appropriate for your current goal.

Human Consciousness. There are six easily recognized states of human consciousness:
Deep Sleep
Dreaming Sleep
Conscious Wakefulness
Instantaneous Insight
Transcendental Consciousness

Each of these six states of consciousness represents an increased direct personal experience of the nature of reality, and is said to move us closer to the ideal state of enlightenment.

Deep sleep is the first level of consciousness, and occurs when your brain is producing very slow Delta brainwaves. During deep sleep there is some awareness, and you can still respond to such external stimuli as sound, bright light, or touch. But during deep sleep your sensory perception is primarily turned down, and you experience very little thinking.

Dreaming is the second state of consciousness. During dreaming we produce REM (rapid eye movements) and spikes into faster brainwave frequencies and are a bit more conscious and alert than during deep sleep. Dreams are definite experiences - we see images and patterns, perceive sounds, and can even think and analyze during dreams. Dream reality poses something of a mystery. The Buddha is quoted as having said: "Am I a man dreaming I am a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming I am a man."

Conscious wakefulness is the mental state you spend most of your waking time in. Your brain activity is quite different from that during both sleep and dreaming. Common wakefulness brainwave activity is dominated by Beta and Gamma brainwaves, perhaps with some Alpha spikes.

Instantaneous insight is the state of consciousness you experience when you have an instant insight that may be accompanied by a sensation of a light flashing in the brain, or a vibration or pressure across the top of your head. This state of mind is entered through a state of relaxed awareness dominated by a combination of Alpha and Theta brainwaves. The sensation of light flashing in the brain is due to an explosion of energy created by a massive neural connection. The feeling of pressure across the top of the head is sensed as the entire cortex vibrates in a single coherent frequency - like the shaking of a bowl of jello.

Transcendental consciousness is marked by a content-free restful alertness. This state usually occurs during deep meditation when one becomes, even for a moment, absolutely still and focused in the quiet gap between their thoughts. This state occurs as the mind momentarily aligns with the Unified Field of Consciousness -- the one source of infinite intelligence and creativity. In this state the self is only aware of itself, and is devoid of all thoughts, feelings and perceptions. Your self-awareness is intact, yet there is no sense of time, space, or your physical body.

This remarkable mental state occurs when the left and right hemispheres are totally balanced and the Schumann gate is open. Conscious Delta brainwaves are present, and levels of Theta and Alpha are elevated and integrated through activity in the Schumann frequency (7.87 cps).

Enlightenment, the sixth state of consciousness, is a meta-level of awareness characterized by the persistent presence of Transcendental Consciousness throughout all of one's activity - waking, sleeping, and dreaming. To my knowledge, no brainwave studies have been performed of this state of consciousness. I personally know only one person whom I can attest lives in this state of enlightenment and constant bliss - Sri Anandi Ma - but I have heard of others.

The Quantum Mind training program is a unique multi-media program designed to assist you in training your brain to enter any desired mental state at will by learning to adjust your own brainwaves.
