Brain Waves & Meditation on OM[AUM]: An insight

Introduction:-

Please go through this simple content which is nothing but my experience only. Just as it is: Thought of sharing my experience. Please spare few minutes. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ

IMPORTANCE OF MEDITATION:

Since ancient time function of brain and meditation have been linked.

We can understand the relationship between brain activity and meditation by the use of modernย  technology such as EEG.ย Basically we are all vibrational beings living in the vibrational universe.

Frequency of vibration determines our experience of reality. The fundamental elements of our physical vibrations are known as brainwave frequencies. Frequencies are measured in Hertz.ย In brain mapping the frequencies are measured in Hertz which are typically in the range between 0.5 to 60Hertz.ย According to studies, published in different websites, during meditation a discernible brainwave patterns seenย  on EEG.

In neuroscience, there are five distinct brain wave frequencies, known as Alpha, Beta, Theta , Delta and Gamma.

Toย  understand the function of brainwave frequencies, which affect our daily life following vibrational patterns are described in brief.

Delta(0.5-3.0 Hz): The deep sleep Wave.

The Delta frequency is the slowest of the frequencies and it is experienced in deep, dreamless sleep and in very deep, transcendental ,ย  meditation where awareness is completely detached. Delta is the realm of unconscious mind. It is the Gateway to the Universal mind.

Alpha(7.5-14 Hz): The Deep Relaxation wave:

Alpha brain waves are present in deep relaxation with the eyes usually closed and while day dreaming or during light meditation. It is an optimal time to program the mind for success.ย It is the Gateway to the Subconscious mind. It heightens imagination, visualization, memory, learning and concentration. It lies at the base of consciousness of human mind.

Theta (4-7.5 Hz): The Light Meditation and Sleeping Wave.

Theta brain waves are present during deep meditation and light sleep including REM dream state. It is the realm of Subconscious mind. It is also known as twilight state as it is normally experienced between Alpha (drift off to sleep)and Delta(arise from deep sleep).A sense of deep spiritual connection and with the Universe can be experienced at Theta. Voice of Theta is silence.

Beta(14-40Hz): The waking Consciousness and Reasoning wave.

Beta brain waves are associated with normal waking consciousness and a heightened state of alertness, logic and critical reasoning. Daily activities are performed in this state. Too much Beta can translate into stress, anxiety and restlessness.ย The voice of Beta is the little nagging chatterbox of inner critic.

Gamma(40-80Hz):ย The Insight Wave.

This range is recently discovered. Little is known about this state of mind.ย Gamma waves with the highest frequency can have a frequency of anywhere between 25 and 100 Hz. Initial research shows that Gamma waves are associated with bursts of insight and high level information processing. Gamma brain waves are fastest brainwave frequency with smallest amplitude. Feelings of Blessings with peak concentration has been reported by experienced meditators.

Neuroscientists believe that gamma waves are able to link information from all parts of the brain-the gamma wave originates in the thalamus and moves back of the brain to the front and back again @ 40Hz.This is the brainwave state of that feeling that any thing can be done.

Now we may draw analogy of the above topic with Mandukya Upanishads, which is shortest among all Upanishads. According to the Mandukya Upanishad, four conditions of Spirit can be described as below.

1)Waking condition: Perception turned outward.

2)Mental condition : Perception turned inward, known as dreaming condition. Self enjoys subtle matter.

3)Deep sleep condition: No desire, no dream. This is intellectual condition. Because of union with Self and his unbroken knowledge, one feels joy. He knows joy. His mind is illuminated.

เฅ~AUM

A~ Waking

U~ Dreaming

M~ Deep Sleep

Turiya: The Fourth condition of the Self which can be achieved through deep meditation that corresponds to “OM” as ONE , invisible Word. Self is Whole and beyond bargain.

The world disappears in HIM. SELF is one without a second.

This condition is known as #Turiya#

Please read Mandukya Upanishad in two parts to understand the topic which you will find inline with Brain waves pattern. Links are here:

1:MaNDukya Upanishad- The Nature of OM: – Part-1

2:MaNDukya Upanishad- The Nature of OM: – Part-2

Any decrease in mind clutter is an increase in our vibrational connection to higher Consciousness.

    1. Yes
      It is indeed interesting.
      Not mere a post.
      My personal experience only.so clubbed together. ๐Ÿ’ฏ Percent pure thoughts and feelings ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™
      Take time but dive into deep inside. See that it is acceptable or not.
      If you are convinced, then it is yours.
      Thank you so much.
      Best regards ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

  1. Bridging science and religion elements into easily accomplish able state is what explained in here. In case of ordinary human being there is a self conclusion without making any enquiry, which downs to making effort to discover the true self. Humans carry erroneous notion that I the reflected consciousness is permanent but the I original consciousness all pervading Brahman is everlasting and all pervading phenomenon. Therefore, relaxed non extrovertedness mind with quality time are important for self enquiry.

    1. Yes Vishnupriya
      You already know the Ultimate Reality.
      That is everyone’s reality.
      That must be realised by everyone.
      Your comments are very meaningful. Add value.
      Very happy to have you here after a long time.
      Best wishes ๐Ÿ˜Š God bless you ๐Ÿ™

  2. Once again a very interesting and informative post Arun Ji. It takes time to understand it properly but after reading .it feels like an eye opener…(Any decrease in mind clutter is an increase in our vibrational connection to higher Consciousness). This is so true and I can say it with my personal experience.

    When we meditate and clear the clutter in our mind, we definitely feel closer to some higher energy which gives us peace and a different kind of satisfaction.

    Thank you so much for sharing this post. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

    1. Ekdom sahi baat kahi hai aapne.
      This is my personal experience โ˜บ๏ธ
      Since 2004, I do practice pranayama and meditation. As time goes, I gain knowledge. Since 2017, I am studying Vedanta Darshan and Quantum Science deeply. Came to know about ancient philosophy. So I thought of sharing my experience.
      Thank you so much for your comments which inspired me.
      Many readers have sent me messages on other platforms.
      Regards Madam ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™

  3. *The power of medicating by chanting ,”OM” has been backed with science already and you have explained it ,in a short post and your experience is true to research Sir. ๐ŸŒŸโœจ๐ŸŒธ
