Why Train Myself to Meditate?

Guided mediation and meditation practice routines are essential for effective meditation. As with any skill, mastery of mediation comes from practice. It can be difficult for a beginner to understand and achieve the theta state of meditation, but this is the place where your mind can powerfully learn and understand, as well as heal and rest.

Most beginners start with the alpha state and progress to the theta meditation level. Practice with tones, beats, music and pacing will be invaluable as a guide. Exercises can help your mind focus on achieving and maintaining the theta state without falling asleep or being sidetracked by “busy” thoughts. With continued effort, a meditative state can be achieved more easily, and perhaps without aids.

Once you can reliably achieve an alpha meditation state, the next goal is to seek out the theta meditation level. It is most easily accomplished when the brain has been trained – using meditation entrainment tones – to find the theta level of meditation, a deep level of meditation with a slow brainwave pattern. The theta meditation level is the most sought-after, most productive, most refreshing level of meditation that promotes happiness, wellness, and spiritual awareness. The theta meditation is often referred to as bliss.

Levels of Mind Awareness for Meditation

There are four recognized states of mind awareness:

Beta – awake, regular day-to-day functioning
Alpha – relaxed but not thinking, drifting off to sleep or daydreaming
Theta – deep meditation
Delta – deep dreamless sleep

Most people naturally move through these states at various moments in a day, but are unaware or do not recognize them. For example, most people spend all of their waking hours in the beta state, and briefly pass through the alpha state as they drift off to sleep. The delta state of dreamless sleep is usually only recognized after we wake up from it feeling peaceful and especially rested.

Meditation is a process of training the mind to seek out and consciously achieve levels of mind awareness beyond the beta state. The health benefits of meditation are widely accepted and well documented. Guided meditation and meditation practice exercises train an individual to achieve and remain at different mind consciousness states for the benefit of relaxation, healing, coping, and regeneration.
