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. ūüôŹūüėä‚̧ԳŹ

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 modern  technology such as EEG. 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. In brain mapping the frequencies are measured in Hertz which are typically in the range between 0.5 to 60Hertz. According to studies, published in different websites, during meditation a discernible brainwave patterns seen  on EEG.

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

To  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 ,  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. 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. The voice of Beta is the little nagging chatterbox of inner critic.

Gamma(40-80Hz): The Insight Wave.

This range is recently discovered. Little is known about this state of mind. 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.

ŗ•ź~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.

My journey through Books: Part-3 [ A Quantum Touch]

In this post, I will emphasize on my miraculous experiences, which I consider as chances in my favour. This was possible by the effective study and practice of¬† activating “Power of Subconscious Mind”.

I consider those events as miracles, because I got links and guidance from unseen and invisible Power within. It is as if someone is guiding through several means, continuously, to get whatever is required in the path to progress.

As I mentioned in my previous post that the most important scientific Book helped me was:

” THE BIOLOGY OF BELIEF: 10th Anniversary Edition: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter & Miracles: Lipton Bruce H.”

What Influenced me while reading the book?

Research made at Stanford University’s School of Medicine by Bruce Lipton revealed that the environment operating through the cell membrane controlled the behaviour and physiology of cells, turning genes on and off.¬† I was reading the book and at the same time I was watching his series of lectures at different places all over the world. Bruce mentioned in his lectures about Quantum Physics.

Quantum physics says that the world visible to us we believe, is composed of matter, which is nothing but illusion. Everything is Energy. There is no such thing as matter. as such I felt an urge to study ” Quantum Physics” . As you know that by this time, I finished the famous book The Power of your Subconscious Mind”: By Joseph Murphy

Study of Quantum Physics became a necessity for me. 

And Miracle Happened [16/12/2018]!

One fine morning, all on a sudden, one of my senior colleagues, Shri Amar Kanti Pal, came to my residence and suggested me to do ongoing physics course from IIT/KANPUR under the leadership of well known prof H C VERMA. Immediately enrolled first course “Basics of Special Theory of Relativity “.

I am happy to share my certificate here:

I developed immense interest [intense desire] to learn more and more on Subconscious mind, Quantum , Philosophy, life experiences, life cycle, human sufferings, etc. which are all interrelated topics. As a result, I got chance to study further and further from the courses conducted by Indian Institute of Technology. KANPUR.

Another Miracle!

The Second course, the most desired and most important was ” Basics of Quantum Mechanics” which helped me to grasp sacred Texts of Upanishads[ ADVAITA VEDANTA]:¬†

Initially, I found the course very interesting which started becoming tough later on, but managed with rigorous studies.

Max Planck is said to be father of quantum Mechanics. see what he said :

That is why I consider these studies as chances (as miracles).

Course on Quantum mechanics was highly beneficial for me because, when I was studying ancient Indian philosophy (Advaita Vedanta) , I came across so many writers , speakers, scientists who referred quantum physics, quantum biology for understanding the Reality as mentioned in Vedanta. To some extent understood what the subjects says. 
I noticed that most of the modern writers, pointed towards quantum physics for understanding the Subject/object , Observer/observed, seer/seen related topics mainly when the subject is consciousness. Advaita Vedanta focuses on consciousness which is the cause of this Universe, not the matter. Material realism can no longer be the only ontological explanation for the Universe. Human consciousness can not be ignored.

Classical Physics vs Quantum Physics:

Laws of classical physics [ NEWTONIAN PHYSICS] is based on matters and 3D system which affirms that there is always separation between the KNOWER & KNOWN (object). Classical physics doesn’t work in the study of subatomic particle’s behaviour and thus in the study of life science. Here matter creates Consciousness
Where as Quantum physics works well in the study of subatomic particles which are building blocks of this Universe and basically it’s nature is waves. This quantum mechanics theory suggests to abolish absolute separation between the KNOWN & KNOWER. Here Consciousness creates matter.

In quantum theory, we have seen objects exists in more than one place at the same time like a wave.

Three distinct and major areas of Quantum theory gives bewildering results.

1. Entanglement:

It is connectedness between two objects so intimate that they behave as one, instantly and forever, even if they are separated by the width of galaxies. Double slit experiment clears it’s spookiness.¬†

2. Complementarity:

As formulated by Niels Bohr, a leading founder of quantum physics, the principle holds that objects can display themselves in one way or another, but not the both. In fact the object does not have an existence in particular location with specific motion. Only the observer’s knowledge and activities cause it to come into existence in some place or with some particular animation. At an instant, an object may be either a wave or a particle, but not the both.

3. Wave function collapse:

This supports that Biocentrism is wave function collapse when we try to measure an object in its subatomic level it’s wave function collapse.¬†At the moment of observation, it takes a definite existence.

According to German physicist MAX BORN (1926),Quantum waves are “waves of probability”, not waves of material.

A wave of Probability is nothing but a likely outcome. Point to be noted here that materials are made of subatomic particles. Subatomic particles behave as wave until OBSEVER tries to measure it. And wave is intangible.
Noble physicist John Wheeler once said” No phenomenon is real phenomenon until it is an observed phenomenon” Above statement is very important in the perspective of Vedanta and Quantum mechanics. There is more to write. May Maybe next time.

And the third course¬† was “Advanced course on Special theory of Relativity”

" Learning is the only thing the mind never exhaust, never fears, and never regrets" This was stated by Leonardo Da Vinci, who was well known Italian painter, draftsman, sculptor, architect and engineer(1452-1519)."

Thus, I believe very clearly, that our consciousness creates our life experiences. We no longer have to view ourselves as passive, or unable to influence our material circumstances. We are not victims of what’s happening.

My personal experiences made me understand, that our Consciousness creates reality in life as because mind sends signals to the nervous system, which controls genes and that is Epigenetics(Above genes). 

We need to rewrite our Subconscious programmes.

Conclusion:

a) Study of Quantum physics made me believe that Thoughts create Reality!

b) I realised that there is a mechanism where Higher Intelligence works inside our body and mind and it is connected to Universal Mind.

c) Many people have heard about placebo effect. This is a term that is frequently used in modern science to describe how conscious mind creates healing of body thinking positive.

d) All my conscious attention are focused in gaining knowledge [Brahma Vidya]. As such my energy has been invested mostly in learning and sharing. I wish to live my life in a state of love.

It is my sincere request to the esteemed readers to share their opinion or queries if any. Suggestions to make the site attractive will be highly helpful for me. Readers are requested to read all the posts to have continuation of the topic from the beginning. My mail ID is : arun7663@gmail.com

Please read my previous post : Link is here:- “ My journey through Books: Part-2″

My next part will focus on the following Books

 

My journey through Books: Part-2

Preface:

In this part I will start with the summary of the books which helped in growing towards Enlightenment. How Books can have positive impact is projected here. I will request the esteemed readers to kindly go through this post. Please read!!!

The first book that triggered was: “Who will cry when you die” and will brief a bit about other books that helped me in overcoming mental sufferings .

Certain event in my personal life shattered me. I was not able to bear with. I started thinking that the main part of my life is going to be ruined. Situation was very difficult to cope up with my job (Job was of great responsibilities being in Air Navigation System for safe Air Traffic). I had tremendous mental pressure which I could not express and share . During that time, I came across with the Book¬† “Who will cry when you die” which was a kick start for me to a new direction.

Actually, I was wrong in my thinking, that I understood after opening the book.

Before reading the book my thought patterns were different. Possessiveness was a major component of thoughts which is the main cause of human sufferings. I was emotional and so I started thinking that I will be no more here and no one will cry for me. May be for some days, they will mourn and just put a garland on death anniversary what we see usually. What more one can expect even after death.

“Who will cry when you die” is a different story. My mind made a space for acting on the simple tips and guidance given in the book. It showed me the light for removing all insignificant worries for living a true Life.

The points I noted as important Tips are here:

  • We should do what we love to.
  • Separate the essential and non essential activities.
  • Be humble, forgiving, and thankful.
  • Increase deposits into your love account.
  • Be Kind and joyous.
  • Worry less and live more.
  • Think positive and attract positivity.
  • Prioritize your Time.
  • Carry a Goal Card
  • Pain is Teacher
  • Take care of your Body and Mind.

After effect: I gifted books to a few for finding happiness.

The Second book that added more power: The Monk Who sold his Ferrari: By Robin Sharma.

Following points gave me more strength.

  • Master your Mind.
  • Follow your Purpose.
  • The Ten Ancient Rituals for Radiant Living.
  • Power of Discipline and it’s Mantras.¬†
  • If you Die today! [ Your actions, if today is your last day of living life]
  • Live like a Child.
  • Embrace the Present.
  • Grow your Destiny.

The Result: As a whole my life got a positive direction and started new living. Gifted the book “The Monk Who sold his Ferrari” to many, such that they get direction too.

The Third book: The Power of your Subconscious Mind: By Joseph Murphy
The book explains and guides how to access the untapped potential of our Subconscious Mind. Immediately after completion of the book “The Power of your Subconscious Mind”, I found there is a dramatic change in my thinking pattern. Teachings of all the above books were in action. I understood the law of attraction is working. I am attracting what I thought for. I realized that I am able to attract positive if I wish. Yes, that started happening. Same thing happened earlier also in my college days or in my service life. But I did not realize that I attracted what I achieved. Very simple is that.

Above mentioned three books changed my life to a new direction and thereby a new journey started in my life. These three books along with other books worked as saviour in my life. These three books were the pioneer to build an interest in the field of Vedanta and Modern Science[ Quantum Physics and Quantum Biology]. 

*#* Law of attraction works. I will write separately on the theory of law of attraction based on my experiences.

Power of my Subconscious mind picked up next Powerful and Specific Books that are: – One after One.

The most important scientific Book helped me was:  THE BIOLOGY OF BELIEF: 10th Anniversary Edition: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter & Miracles: Lipton Bruce H.

Summary: Cells as Miniature Human:

Bruce H Lipton, an American cell biologist, notable for his views on Epigenetics. In his book, he claims that ” Beliefs control human biology rather than DNA and inheritance. According to Lipton, A human is a co-operative of 50 Trillion cells. Human Beings are simply the consequence of ” Collective amoebic Consciousness” Having harmonious relation of the 50 trillion cells, a human can take control of his/her life. Each sell is an intelligent being that can survive on it’s own, as scientists demonstrate when they remove individual cells from the body and grow them in a culture. Bruce concluded that we are not victims of our genes, but masters of our fates, able to create lives overflowing with peace, happiness, and love.

After effect: I started following lectures of Dr. Lipton

Please watch this video, the link given below:

Bruce Lipton The Biology of Belief Full Lecture

The other Book: Evolve your Brain: The Science of Changing your Mind: By Joe Dispenza: 

Brief Summary of the above:

Dr. Joe holds a Bachelor of Science degree and is a Doctor of Chiropractic. His post graduate training includes the fields of neuroscience and neuroplasticity. Through his research, he explores the science behind spontaneous remissions to empower people to change from the inside out. Combining the fields of Quantum Physics, Neuroscience, Brain chemistry, Biology and Genetics, Dr. Dispenza explores the effects of Meditation on how people can heal themselves of Chronic and Terminal diseases. This book helped me in developing constant thoughts of positivity.

My journey through Books: Part-1

Introduction:

This journey through books started on December-2016 and it was specific and you can say something predetermined in the perspective of Spirituality.

So far I have published about 27 Blogs on Vedanta (Upanishad). In this blog series, I am going to let you know, how I entered into the world of Vedanta.

Certain odd events in my life made me very low during the mid 2016. Indeed I was very happy with my professional life, due to my promotion to the post of Dy. General Manager (CNS) , Ahmedabad Airport in the month of June-2016 with independent charge of AERODROME OPERATION CONTROL CENTER (AOCC) ), AUTOMATIC SWITCHING SYSTEM (Important system for for flight movements), All types of communication system  for inter and intra Airports, along with additional responsibilities of Surveillance Systems (Primary Radar, Secondary Radar,  Automatic Dependant Surveillance system[ADS] and to impart Training. I was doing good with Jeal and enthusiasm with my team, yet I was highly unhappy which was purely personal. As I was committed to my job which was directly related to passenger safety and security, so I had to be on my toe for that. I had to care the systems 24/7. That was a tough situation but without much difficulties I was managing well as far as my responsibilities towards my organization( AIRPORTS AUTHORITY OF INDIA) was concerned.

At certain moment I started thinking like this ” Who will cry when I will die”. Within a day or two,¬† I found a book named ” Who will cry when you die : By Robin Sharma” in the Airport Book shop. I decided to buy that book anytime soon. But I missed the chance to buy that one from the Airport Book Shop.¬† I was so busy with my job that it was not possible to find even time to search the book in other stores. That time, I never thought of buying it online. I went to Bangalore to visit my daughter and son in law. I stayed for some time there. I searched the book in book stores like ” Cross World”. It was out of stock. My daughter suggested me buy it online from Amazon or flipkart. I did that and bought one from Amazon. Finally the book was in my hand. Finally books became my mentor and saved me from going into depression and get lost.¬†

  • The first book came in my mind was: Who will cry when you die : By Robin Sharma:

  • The Second book: The Monk Who sold his Ferrari: By Robin Sharma:

  • The Third book: The Power of your Subconscious Mind: By Joseph Murphy

Above mentioned three books changed my life to a new direction and thereby a new journey started in my life. These three books along with others worked as saviour in my life. These three books were the pioneer to build an interest in the field of Vedanta and Modern Science[ Quantum Physics and Quantum Biology]. I will share everything with you my dear readers. What magical events happened in my life, that I will share in the next part. In this part I have listed few books that initially helped me. I will write in details about the contents of the books in short.

After reading these three, I got the following books miraculously.

Next appeared in my life are the books shown above These books are like life saving drugs, even more than that.
