Alpha is a level of brain wave frequency. Meditating at that level connects you with your subconscious mind. Meditation has always had positive results provided you are disciplined enough to do it regularly. But alpha meditation is something new I came to know about. It’s like this, when we meditate, our brain activity slows down as we enter a more peaceful state of mind. The brain activity is measured in four levels
Beta: Your normal waking state, which is characterized by brain rhythms of 14 cycles per second and above. In this state your mind activity is a veritable can of worms. The higher the brain activity becomes, the greater the stress factor.
Alpha: A very relaxed state of mind, characterized by brain rhythms of between 7 and 14 cycles per second. In this state of mind you are relaxed, somewhere halfway between being fully awake and asleep. Dreaming and daydreaming occur in the alpha state.
The big difference between operating in alpha and beta is that in beta your mind is in control of yourself, whereas in alpha you are in control of your mind.
Theta: Usually the state of sleep, when not dreaming. Characterized by brain rhythms of between 3.5 to 7 cycles per second. The theta level is also reached in very deep forms of meditation where consciousness becomes separate from mind and body.
Delta: Very deep sleep or coma, characterized by a brain rhythm of between .5 to 3.5 cycles per second.
