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.

Successful Living Series

Successful Living SeriesWe are very excited to introduce our Day Creator and Blessed Union meditation CDs for deep relaxation and guided meditation to assist people in increasing spiritual well being. As practicing physicians, we understand the busy schedule and other distractions that make a spiritual discipline difficult to maintain. Our application of medical principles such as control of the breath, slowing the brain activity to theta meditation, deep relaxation and alternating tones to stimulate right and left brain, further enhances your ability to create and deepen the internal mental awareness that best interfaces with spiritual mind.

The Blessed Union

Dr Louise Barksdale helped to inspire the Blessed Union couples meditation to help us enhance our unity as a couple as well as our spiritual inner awareness as one. If consciousness is non-local, then our loving relationship and harmony can be further enhanced if we blend more and more of the expanded aspect of our individual consciousness via the path of deep meditation. The exercise is set up to facilitate your consciousness functioning at the deeper theta level of brain activity. This is the level of access to the expanded mind consciousness beyond our physical boundaries. There is access to the purer aspects of our spiritual consciousness—the spiritual mind of the greater You that is projecting into your consciousness and your physical body for this life learning experience. The more we can share in that unity as loving couples, the greater the harmony and spontaneous unity of purpose. This further opens the heart center, deepening the loving relationship.
