“Sit in reverie and watch the changing color of the waves that break upon the idle seashore of the mind.” —Henry Wadsworth Longfellow



“We spend most of our conscious waking day with our attention on the external environment and functioning in Beta [brain wave state]. […]” —Joe Dispenza*


Beta waves


“[Fast Beta-wave states are the realm of the conscious mind]. [When your brain is in high Beta it] isn’t in creative mode [nor meditative, nor inspiration mode, nor receptive mode]; it’s fixated on survival. […]” ―Ibid




 “Slow brain-wave states are the realm of the subconscious. [For example, slower] Alpha waves are created in the creative, imaginative state. […]” ―Ibid


Delta waves i


“Your outer world is a reflection of your inner reality. […] Your thoughts have consequences so great that they create your reality.” ―Ibid


Zeta waves


“When one holds a dream independent of the environment, that’s greatness.” ―Ibid


Eta waves


“Happiness comes from within. […] Once you change your internal state, you don’t need the external world to provide you with a reason to feel joy, gratitude, appreciation, or any other elevated emotion.” —Ibid


Theta waves


“Meditation Takes Us from Beta into Alpha and Theta Brain-Wave States. […]”  —Ibid


Kappa waves


“All someone has to do in order to be hypnotized or to hypnotize him- or herself is to move down from high- or mid-range Beta waves into a more relaxed Alpha or Theta state. Thus, meditation and self-hypnosis are similar.” —Ibid


Lambda waves


“When you hold clear, focused thoughts about your purpose, accompanied by your passionate emotional engagement, you broadcast a stronger electromagnetic signal that pulls you toward a potential reality that matches what you want.” —Ibid


Sigma waves


“True happiness has nothing to do with pleasure, because the reliance on feeling good from such intensely stimulating things [that come from the external environment] only moves us further from real joy [which exists internally, independently of the external environment].” —Ibid


Alpha waves


“To be empowered—to be free, to be unlimited, to be creative, to be genius, to be divine—that is who you are…. Once you feel this way, memorize this feeling; remember this feeling. This is who you really are….” —Ibid

  1. Some people say Ibid was a great thinker but it seems to me he mostly just rode the coat-tails of the whatever the previous quote was. Wonderful job, as always, CES

    • Thanks George. Btw, if Ibid is a great thinker, so is Anon, assuming Latin citations think alike.

  3. Very interesting post (but I did miss your poetry). The images are gorgeous. A notion I found interesting was that meditation and self-hypnosis could be similar. I had never thought of that but as a long time meditator I can say that it has transformed me even if by autosuggestion.
    into new waves of thinking
