Meditation is essential. It allows you to slow down your brain waves and get beyond the thinking, analytical mind, down into the subconscious mind where we can access, change, and upgrade our unwanted, outdated programs.
When the conscious mind is awake and functioning optimally, it exists in the realm of the beta state. Once you get beyond beta, the first layer of the subconscious is the alpha brain state. In alpha, your breathing naturally slows down. The more relaxed you become, the deeper you go into the theta and delta states. These are states of suggestibility. Yes, just like hypnosis. It all works to access the subconscious.
Meditation is a practice, a skill to be developed. The more you do it, the more natural it becomes. When you can allow your body to deeply sleep, while still remaining conscious, that is where magic happens. Only it’s not really magic… It’s science!
