Meditation allows us to directly participate in our lives instead
of living life as an afterthought.

We can utilize meditation to create genuine and dynamic positive change in our lives.
In order to create positive change, science tells us that we need to shift from the active and stress-filled level of brain function and frequency into a more relaxed and healing state of mind.
The waking state of brain function is known as beta. Beta brain function ranges from hyper-vigilance and highly stressed to everyday focus and functional awareness. We spend a great deal of our waking time is the busy-mind-state of beta. It is well documented that extended periods of high beta activity are very hard on the body, mind and spirit.
To activate the relaxation response, we need to shift our brain frequency from from the highly active state of beta into alpha. Alpha brainwave frequency is associated with rest and relaxation. During alpha,we are reflective, in-process and creative. Our breathing becomes more relaxed. Our pulse rate slows, our blood pressure goes down and the endocrine system sends chemical (hormonal) messages that shift the body into a recovery and healing mode.
As the brainwave frequency slows down, we move through levels of consciousness. In beta, we are highly conscious, awake and aware. In alpha, we are slowing down and more relaxed. As brainwave frequency continues to slow, we shift from a relaxed state into a state where we still conscious and yet we are now able to access the subconscious mind.
This alpha into theta frequency is the goal for our guided meditation. In this frequency, we are able to access the benefits of theta brainwave frequency. Theta brainwave frequency ranges from daydreaming, meditation, light sleep and finally the dream state.
For our purposes, we will focus on the alpha-into-theta brainwave frequency range because this is the space where we are able to access the subconscious mind. At this point, the critical (discerning) consciousness relaxes and we now have access to our subconscious mind. Dr. Bruce Lipton has stated that 95% of our mind is unconscious and this subconscious mind is one million times more powerful than our conscious mind. We will harness the power of guided meditation to shift from beta into alpha-theta. This is your opportunity to activate the relaxation response in your body and to access your subconscious mind for the purpose of co-creating health, happiness and transformation.
