What are theta brain waves?

Think about your brain waves as a spectrum that ranges from very fast to very slow. This spectrum would not be complete without all five types of brain waves.

Theta waves fall close to the low end of the spectrum. They are slower than alpha waves but faster than delta waves. An electroencephalogram (EEG) would measure theta waves in the 4 to 8 Hz range. Theta brain waves are also believed as a good way for manifestation.

When would theta waves occur?

Theta brain waves occur when you’re sleeping or dreaming, but they don’t occur during the deepest phases of sleep. They may occur when you’re drifting off to sleep or suspended in that light phase of sleep, just before you wake up.

Theta brain waves can also occur when you’re awake, but in a very deeply relaxed state of mind; a state that some may describe as “autopilot.” Theta induces a capacity for prolonged daydreaming, where a loss of time may be experienced. However, if you experience high levels of theta waves while you’re awake, you might feel a little sluggish or scattered.

Experts believe that theta waves are important for processing information and making memories. 

Manifestation is more about energy than about set-in-stone techniques. But some uncommon manifestation techniques might help your energy get there.

Here are 4 unusual manifestation techniques to attract anything you want:

1. Sleeping

As easy as it sounds, manifesting while you sleep is an incredibly effective method that is also partially backed up by science. It all has to do with accessing your subconscious mind.

Brainwave analysis has shown that when we’re awake our brain is in a Beta wave pattern, which allows us to concentrate hard on tasks at hand — and they’re critical when we read, write, and socialize.

However, when we drift off to sleep or we meditate, our brainwaves change from Beta to Alpha, and, ultimately to Theta waves — when we fall asleep.

As mentioned above, Theta waves mean your subconscious mind — rather than the conscious — takes control. And the subconscious mind is the one bringing about our manifestations.

Manifestation is influenced more by our subconscious beliefs, thoughts, patterns than by our conscious actions. This is mainly why our limiting beliefs sometimes block our manifestations.

So if you want to boost your manifestation process, you have to make your subconscious mind “cooperate”.

  • Get clear on what you want to manifest
  • Visualize it before you fall asleep
  • Repeat this whenever it feels natural

The effectiveness of this method comes from getting your subconscious mind used to the fact that what you’re manifesting is actually real in the present moment — and from there, your brain will do the job.

In Brainwaves, we recommend you try some brain waves for manifestation to better get into the theta state. Here are some selected brain wave audios for manifestation so that you can try them out:

2. Affirmations

Affirmations work because if you repeat the same thing enough times — while feeling the emotion associated with it — you convince your mind that it’s real.

And because your mind can’t be in a state of cognitive dissonance, it will do everything it can in order to make that happen in reality.

You can mix the first technique “brain waves for manifestation” with affirmations as well, and say them — in your mind — right before sleep, for best results with the help of Theta brainwaves.

3. Future self Q&A

Communicating with your higher — or future — self is an extremely helpful manifestation technique.

We release blockages and get used to acting and re-acting like/from our higher-self, rather than our ego.

  • Start out in meditation and imagine your best self, who you want to become, with all the traits and characteristics you wish to manifest in your life.
  • Next, take a few moments to ask your future self for guidance: “What is the next step in order to achieve this?” and stay in meditation for a few more moments, while being open to receiving the answers and guidance you need.
  • Write down everything that came to mind during your meditation and then look over the list to connect the dots: sometimes the guidance is really clear, and sometimes you need to meditate on it for a while in order to understand it.

4. Active visualization

Visualization means envisioning your desires in your mind using your imagination, and feeling the feelings of them being real.

In the active visualization, you visualize the desire but you also act the part. Let’s say, if you‘re manifesting a new car, you put your hands on its imaginary steering wheel and “drive” it while visualizing.

If you haven’t already tried these techniques out, we encourage you to try out the ones that speak to you the most, and to keep an open mind while doing it — you may have incredible results with many of these. By external influence, the brain waves for manifestation are one good way to adapt into that state gradually.

And remember: the more fun you have in manifesting, the better the results.
