Beta waves, ranging from 13-40 cps or Hz, represent our everyday, normal state of consciousness, which is focused primarily on external stimuli. Nobel Prize Winner, Sir Francis Crick and other scientists believe that the 40 Hz Beta frequency may be the brainwave that represents the act of cognition because 40 cps or Hz corresponds with how long our neurons typically stay phase-locked on one stimulus.
Dr. Rodolfo Llinas, professor of neuroscience at New York University, believes that the 40 cps waves serve to connect structures in the cortex where advanced information processing occurs with the thalamus in the lower brain region, at the location that complex relay and integration functions are carried out. However, all these stimuli are not accessible with our conscious awareness. Of the myriad stimuli that enter our brain, which information will be integrated in our conscious mind and which information will be stored in our unconscious and superconscious for future access?
Beta wave information that is usually directed to our everyday conscious mind is:
- Information that is important for survival
- Information that is familiar
- Information that is expected
- Information that is desired
The short, fast Beta brain waves are bound by the logical, sequential, “time-bound” rules of the third dimension. Information that cannot be placed into a sequential or cause-effect pattern will go into the Unconscious because the confusion this information causes would interfere with survival. However, if the stimuli become familiar, they can then be processed in the Beta waves and integrated into the information of our daily life.
Information that is expected and/or desired may also be routed to the conscious mind even though it may not be “time-bound.” For example, if we are interested in the parapsychological or metaphysical, we not only believe that stimuli can be received from other dimensions, we expect and desire it. Therefore, we can integrate this information into our mundane reality.
Beta wave information that is usually directed to the unconscious mind is:
- Information about our physical body
- Information about our emotions
- Information about our ego/self
- Information about others
Most of this information will be “reactions” to our physical life. If we are a “conscious person,” meaning that we can maintain some degree of inner focus while we go about our daily life, we may be able to consciously perceive these “unconscious” reactions.
The Western mind often focuses the concept of “self” in our minds rather than our bodies. Therefore, we tend to give more importance to information about our mental well-being than our physical well-being, that is until we become injured or sick. Then any information that we receive about our body becomes VERY important. It is the same with our emotions. Just as we do not perceive the information from our bodies until we get sick, we often are not aware of our emotions until they are out of our control.
Beta wave information that is usually directed to the superconscious mind is:
- Information about our higher SELF
- Information about the Collective Consciousness of the world around us
- Information about our personal “mission” (i.e. our reason for coming to Earth)
- Information about the higher dimensions
Our ego/self is most likely to consciously perceive information regarding how we interact with others in our society. Although, if we believe that information from our superconscious mind is important to our survival, we will desire and expect to consciously receive information from it. As we habitually, consciously receive information from our SELF, it will become more familiar and easier to integrate into our conscious reality.
However, most superconscious stimuli cannot be received by Beta waves as they resonate to a higher frequency carrier wave, such as Alpha, Theta, and Delta. We can perceive the carrier frequency of the superconscious only when we have expanded our consciousness to the extent that we can access information from both our Higher Self and our Unconscious Self while we are conscious to the external, physical world. Our challenge is to integrate that information into our daily life.
INTEGRATION INTO DAILY LIFE
Beta waves focus our perceptions and awareness towards our external third dimensional reality. These brainwaves must also organize all our conscious perceptions into the third dimensional construct of space/time. Concurrently, it is this sequential space/time processing which calibrates our perception to the third dimension.
Beta waves must also constantly differentiate between “me” and “not me” in order to maintain the third dimensional illusion of separation. Then the Beta waves must also factor in the ever-increasing list of limitations that maintain our ego within the physical reality. Beta waves belong to our ego’s sensory mechanism. To perceive beyond the limitations of the ego, we must calibrate the frequency of our consciousness away from the separation and limitations of our ego.
In Alpha wave consciousness, we limit the focus of our attention and therefore, our perception. If we simply close our eyes and attune to our emotions, body sensations and thoughts, we can sense our inner world. If we then learn to hear the inner music and see our inner pictures, we can create enough “nowness” of perception to slow our brain’s frenetic energy to the Alpha waves. The Alpha waves will then give us a glimpse of the ever-present fourth dimension. From the fourth dimension, time and space begin to blur, as in our dreams. One moment we are “here” and the next moment we are “there.” Shapes also morph so that we can experience third and fourth dimensional faces of our SELF within one vision.
In the brainwave patterns of Theta and Delta everything is experienced simultaneously in the NOW. Therefore our Delta and Theta experiences are “unconscious” to our third dimensional consciousness. In order to integrate into our “conscious” life information we receive in Theta and Delta waves, these perceptions must be formatted into the sequential function of our third dimensional brain. Otherwise, it will resonate only to the fourth dimension and the third dimensional brain will not be able to perceive or remember it. We can learn to use our focused Alpha brainwaves to transfer, or “download”, information from Theta and Delta waves. Once these “files” are downloaded into our Alpha consciousness, they can more easily be integrated into our everyday Beta consciousness.
The 70-85% of our brain that is usually unused is only accessed while our attention is focused on a meditative and creative activity. When we learn to calibrate our consciousness through balancing our emotions, calming our minds and attuning to our inner reality, we can access information from other dimensions. As we consciously expand the full capacity of our personal computers—our brains—we will be surprised by how much better they can serve us.
For example, with our multidimensional consciousness, we are able to use the Alpha Bridge to integrate the otherwise unconscious spiritual guidance of Theta waves and the superconscious higher dimensional information of Delta waves with our conscious, Beta wave thinking. It is within this balanced state of Conscious, Unconscious and Superconsscious that we can BE our SELF.
