Synopsis by Angela Ueckert

“How we form and experience…connections is determined by and reflects our brainwave patterns.
By becoming intentionally aware of our states of consciousness as we interact, learning to utilize our radar appropriately, and practicing conscious connection, we…enhance our relationships and improve rapport.  When we understand not only how our brainwaves are affected by others but also how we can affect other people’s brainwaves, we increase our empathy, our communication skills, and our satisfaction in relationships.”

“BETA BRAINWAVES…

When functioning at their best, beta waves are associated with logical thinking, concrete problem solving, and active external attention,…help us to consciously function in the world,…know how to master them so that we can use them effectively and not be at their mercy,…increased blood flow and metabolism, and is an active state with higher levels of cognitive processing, complex thinking, and decision making.”

ALPHA BRAINWAVES…

…present during daydreaming, fantasizing, and visualization….a relaxed, detached awareness and with a receptive mind. …provides the bridge between the conscious and subconscious mind.”  Without alpha, you will not remember your dreams when you awaken, even though you recall that they were strong, vivid, and meaningful,…not recall your meditation even though you know you went to a great depth and had many insights.  When alpha is missing, the link to the subconscious is broken.

THETA BRAINWAVES…

…overwhelming sense of spiritual awakening, an inexplicable burst of creative insight, a cavernous sense of pain, or a dawning awareness of the possibilities of what might be hidden within your mind,…forms a layer between the conscious and the unconscious.  Theta holds a profusion of memories, sensations, and emotions.  Though these experiences may be inaccessible to the conscious mind, they can nevertheless affect and even govern your attitudes, expectations, beliefs, and behaviors.  They are active during sleep and deep meditation, and they are particularly strong during so-called peak experiences, spiritual insight, and high-functioning brain states.

DELTA BRAINWAVES…

You know the telephone is going to ring before it rings.  You know what your friend/lover/spouse/child is feeling because you feel it too.  Sometimes you are even confused about whether the feeling you are experiencing belongs to you or to someone else,…you reach out with your mind…your own personal radar, sending and receiving messages on an unconscious level.  Delta brainwaves make up the unconscious mind,…still turned on when the rest of your brainwaves are turned off,…provides the restorative stages of sleep.
