These alpha state of mind techniques will help you immensely if you want to develop your psychic ability or you just want to improve your meditations. You can also get your free entrainment MP3 with a PDF script below.
Many psychics experience their ability from childhood, claiming to be able to see or talk to people others can’t see, or some other kinds of imaginary people or characters.
What is alpha mind?
Alpha = 14 to 7 cycles per second when measured on an EEG: An Electroencephalogram is a brain wave test. Up to about the age of seven our brainwave frequency while awake is predominantly ALPHA. However, most of us lose these abilities past 7 years of age as that is when our brainwave activity speeds up along with our intellect and thinking skills. Luckily, with a little training and understanding, we can slow down our busy minds. Calming down enough to access these states of mind is essential for developing your psychic ability.
Those that maintain their psychic gifts into adult life manage somehow to easily drop back into Alpha and even Theta (7 to 5 cps) states. Most do this unknowingly I must add, but in doing so they keep and further develop their psychic skills.
The brain wave frequency of Alpha is the open channel to our subconscious, our imagination and creativity and to our sixth sense. The Earth’s heartbeat – is known as the Schumann Resonance after the 1930s physicist Heinrich Schumann discovered the permanent standing wave in the atmosphere between the Earth's surface and the ionosphere predominantly resonates at 7.8Hz (Alpha)
One of the best and most practical ways to develop your psychic ability is to learn the alpha state of mind techniques, meditation, and relaxation skills in Alpha State Of Mind Techniques in a Silva Mind Method Training or the like. Jose Silva the founder of the now world famous Silva Method said his original seminar was structured to teach Clairvoyance. He initially studied hypnosis in depth so as to help his daughter with her school studies. In 1949 he began helping his daughter Isabel. He would bring her down to a semi-hypnotic state (the Alpha-Level) and then while she was in this relaxed state José would read lessons and recite poetry and then test her recall.
First results were excellent because while in the semi-hypnotic Alpha Level we have direct access to our subconscious. So the information that Jose’s daughter Isabel had studied was easily recalled from the subconscious to the conscious mind.
Great! … But what also started to happen as she became at ease with using these alpha state of mind techniques was this. Isabel started to recall the poems that Jose had not yet read to her. She was one step ahead of him!
To quote Jose Silva. “It was hard to believe, but it was happening right in my own living room with my own daughter. Since I had read about Edgar Cayce when I was in the army and stationed near Bowling Green, Kentucky, where Cayce had lived, it made some sense to me. It also made me think again about all the research I had done about people who claimed to have been clairvoyant.”
Jose Silva continued to work with others to prove to himself that he had formulated these Alpha State Of Mind Techniques into a training system that would to bring out the clairvoyance in people. In the ten years from 1953 Jose Silva had trained thirty nine men, women and children to function as clairvoyants. From his regular Friday night get-togethers which continued to grow, the Jose Silva Method is now taught internationally through a network of Silva Mind franchises. Millions of people have now used Jose Silva's alpha state of mind techniques to help them build a healthier, happier and more fulfilling life. Although no longer marketed specifically as psychic development training it is the very same process.
If you can’t find a Silva seminar in your area there have been many offshoots from Silva’s original Alpha Mind Power Training work.
In 1963 Alexander Everett moved to the USA from England after being inspired by Silva's alpha state of mind techniques. He went on to develop Mind Dynamics.
In Australia the Silva method inspired a seminar training called Alpha Dynamics. I was fortunate enough to work with Alpha Dynamics in Australia for several years in the 1980's. As well as seeing thousands of people awakened to their own inner gifts it also gave me a wonderful foundation to further develop my own psychic ability to a professional level.
These four-day training courses, under one name or another, caught on rapidly and continue to be taught throughout the world. As some of these training companies shut down many of the instructors went out on their own. They formed such seminars and courses as Inward Bound, Lifespring, Forum, Life Dynamics, Context Trainings, Lifestream, PSI World Seminars, Actualizations, Leadership Dynamics, Inner Wealth, Vasta Meditation, The Sedona Method, and many, many more.
When practicing my alpha state of mind techniques, using this 7 step meditation, be in a place where you will not be disturbed. (Turn off phones!)
While listening to the Alpha Entrainment MP3 (linked below) sit up straight in a comfortable position. Become aware that you are tense. Say to yourself “Alert Mind, Calm Body”. Smile, relax your face, relax your jaw, and sparkle inwards with the intent of entering into an alpha state of meditation.
* It is important to listen to the MP3 for 21 days while meditating so that your brain 'associates' the alpha level with this meditation. After that you should only need to mentally go through the meditation and you will naturally enter the alpha level each time.
What is Alpha meditation?
Practicing alpha state of mind techniques will enable you to access this magical state of mind (7.83Hz) consciously and at will. Without the discipline of a meditation you will still enter alpha at certain times of your day, but not being aware of it you will miss a great opportunity to gain maximum advantage from your mind's hidden power.
How do you know if you are in alpha state?
In the past, to really know you are in an alpha state of mind, you would need to hook yourself up to a machine used by neuroscience researchers called an EEG (Electroencephalograph). You would have sensors stuck to your head in certain places that accurately measure your brain wave frequencies. Mainly Beta, Alpha, Theta, and Delta. Nowadays technology advances have made it possible (and affordable) to have your own EEG headband for home use to practice these alpha state of mind techniques.
How do you use a Muse brain sensing headband?
It is amazingly simple to use my Muse brain sensing headband when practicing my alpha state of mind techniques and know when I'm in the zone. I use the Muse app (with ocean sounds option) and my own headphones. When in alpha I hear the ocean gently lapping as if I was at my local beach and the sound of sea birds. I can tell you it is very realistic because I live near the ocean and I walk on a secluded beach often. The birds sound exactly the same on my headband as they do when I actually walk past them at the beach! If my mind wanders out of the alpha state of mind the weather sounds in the headband become stormy and there are no birds. That is my cue to bring my attention back to my meditation and focus on my breath. The app keeps records so I can review my results and track my progress.
