What really happens when you meditate with our FREE meditation track?
Ever wonder what’s going on in your brain when you meditate? Even those with little experience will know of the common traits; that feeling of relaxation, clarity of mind – but what do you know of the science behind it?It’s all to do with your neural oscillation, or as it is more commonly known – brain waves – which naturally occur in 4 frequencies.
Brain Wave Frequency (cycles per seconds)
Your natural, waking rhythm. Perception of all 5 senses and of time and space.
Experienced during light sleep. Higher intuition. The dream state.
The level associated with deep sleep and relaxation. The mind remains active.
Deep dreamless sleep also known as slow-wave sleep. Complete loss of body awareness.
How does your brain switch between them?
As you go about your day (and even as you read this) your mind is in the Beta level. These low amplitude waves with multiple and varying frequencies are often associated with active, busy, or anxious trails of thought. When people meditate they are subconsciously switching their brain waves to the higher Alpha level, giving people that sought after sensation of relaxation and peace.
The difficulty for most, even seasoned meditation gurus, is getting to and staying at this higher level of brain activity. It’s all too easy for a ringing phone or passing car to knock you out of Alpha, plus there are the internal barriers to overcome like mental chatter or stray thoughts.
At Mindvalley we receive literally hundreds of emails each week from our subscribers asking for tips or techniques on how to help them eliminate their meditation gremlins. We’ve heard stories of the extreme lengths people go to to overcome these challenges, such as spending thousands on meditation and yoga instructors or even travelling to the remote ashrams of India.
As always, we do our best to extend a helping hand, but tips and guidance can only go so far, so in late 2011 we asked ourselves a rather bold question…
Could we create something to help revolutionize how you meditate?
After asking this of ourselves, the questions kept coming. Just how far could modern technology push the boundaries of what our minds are truly capable of?
What if we could eliminate the barriers that all too often stop us from entering an Alpha level? Could we make it possible for people who had never successfully meditated before to feel the same experience as someone who does it on the daily?
We spent the next 12 months trying to answer these very questions. We spoke with and studied our meditation community, we probed and prodded their hopes and concerns, analyzed the most common obstacles, learned how they like to meditate, what they would like to see in the future, and then put all those collective concerns into developing an industry leading audio technology that could bring deep, effective meditation to all.
We finally got our answer…
Yes, we could and we called it OmHarmonics
For many, this was the first guided audio that achieved something that truly complimented the foundations of meditation. It got such a reaction it was even featured at Times Square. In the first 7 days over 50,000 meditative minds sampled the free audio.
