Gamma, beta, alpha, theta, and delta are the five main brainwave states, each associated with different frequencies and states of awareness.
Gamma waves have the highest frequency and are associated with a heightened state of consciousness, increased mental clarity, and moments of insight. They range from 30 to 100 Hz.
Beta waves have a frequency range of 12 to 30 Hz and are associated with high levels of alertness, concentration, and problem-solving. They are present during normal mental activity.
Alpha waves have a frequency range of 8 to 12 Hz and are associated with a relaxed yet alert state of mind. They are present during meditation, daydreaming, and periods of relaxation.
Theta waves have a frequency range of 4 to 8 Hz and are associated with deep relaxation, meditation, and shamanic journeying. They are present during deep states of relaxation and meditation.
Delta waves have the lowest frequency range of 0.5 to 4 Hz and are associated with deep sleep, unconsciousness, and healing. They are present during periods of deep sleep and rest.
Understanding these different brainwave states can help us to achieve different states of awareness and improve our overall mental and emotional well-being. By practicing meditation, shamanic journeying, and other relaxation techniques, we can tap into these different brainwave states and experience the benefits they offer.
