Theta waves are the slowest conscious brain waves, running at 4-7 hz. Theta brain waves induce a dream-like state coupled with intuitive awareness, which is great for enhancing creativity.
The majority of binaural beats recordings concentrate on the Alpha waves zone, which operates at between 8-14hz, and engages the brain to focus on the “inner world” and cultivate a calm, undistracted mind.
The alpha state is considered the optimum state for meditation, yet theta meditation is becoming extremely popular because people want to go deeper and explore the depths of the mind. Theta binaural beats aren't as common as Alpha, but there are a few good theta waves recordings out there that offer fantastic relaxation and heightened spiritual awareness.
Children generally produce more theta waves than adults. This is because they worry and fear less, and subsequently allow the mind to wander a path of creativity and unrestricted imagination.
The great thing about theta binaural beats recordings is that you can re-access that amazing child-like state of being fully present, allowing your mind to roam creativity, which is awesome for artists, musicians, writers and alike.
Theta brain waves kick in naturally with powerful surges of emotion, when you are in a creative state of mind, and if nurtured will enhance creativity, enable “Super Learning,” deep relaxation and day-dreaming. For some, theta waves are a curse, such as those suffering ADD and ADHD.
This is because they are unable to release the mind from theta and concentrate on tasks that require deep attention, such as school work. People without such problems can easily shift from theta to alpha and beta without a problem, yet achieving a theta state on demand isn't easy in a busy, stressful modern world.
And that is where theta binaural recordings can help us to completely let go of all attachment, fear, stress, worry and grasping, and instead, step into a zone of intuitive awareness, heightened creativity, and a deeper emotional connection with yourself. I created my own theta recording that you can listen to here.
