Beta Brainwave Frequencies

The beta brain wave pattern occurs during the normal waking conscious activities. Our conscious mind is responsible for all of the thinking, analyzing, worrying, and second-guessing – while dealing with the outside world. All the incessant mental chattering that go on in the mind keeps us trapped within our own understanding of reality, whether it is healthy for us or not. Towards the high frequency side the beta state is associated with anxiety, panic, and fear.

We normally give full control to our conscious mind, which may be advantageous in some cases, and go against our broader interest in others. It is too embroiled in itself to be able to take an unbiased view of reality. Stating simply, it is too busy evaluating everything. For healthy results, the conscious and subconscious minds should work together. And this is only possible if you do not let the conscious mind to go into overdrive and allow it restful pauses.

It is only when we silence the conscious mind that the creativity and insights from the subconscious mind begin to surface. Activities like meditation and hypnosis turn the mind inwards and temporarily suspend the critical faculty of the conscious mind.

Pros and Cons of Beta Waves

Beta brain waves are a great source of energy for your mind and body. Beta brain waves are often referred to as being "dreaming" waves, because your brain waves when you are dreaming exhibit much of the same characteristics as do beta brainwaves. If you were to get yourself into a deep dream state with beta brain waves, you would likely be very focused and aware, and be in an extremely advantageous position. Unfortunately, your body will most likely not be as relaxed during your waking hours, and that can translate to poor health conditions. The following is a look at when being beta brainwave frequencies good and when are beta brainwave frequencies bad.

When are beta brainwave frequencies bad? They can be bad, they can be good, but they can be pretty bad or very good. It all depends on the type of experience you are having, when are beta brainwave frequencies good and when are beta brainwave frequencies bad. For instance, let's take a look at some potential dangers when are beta brainwave frequencies good.

First things first: If you are new to beta brainwave frequencies, you may be feeling a little drowsy and un-refreshed right after you wake up. This is perfectly normal. You will quickly grow accustomed to the raised alpha brainwave frequencies that are occurring naturally when you are awake and alert. You will find that you begin to feel more alert, more focused, and alert in a whole variety of ways. This is all because of the beta brainwave frequencies that you are naturally attracted to when you are awake. The difference is that while you are falling asleep, the brainwave frequencies associated with your deepest states of relaxation are greatly amplified.

The reason that this is a danger is that you are not in your deepest states of relaxation. Your mind is not in it. You will fall into a very shallow sleep, and you will wake up many times throughout the night. This is because the brainwave frequencies associated with your deepest states of relaxation are being used instead of your beta brainwave frequencies that are naturally occurring. This means that you will be awake for a few minutes to an hour, but you will not be completely rested, because the beta brainwave frequencies are still dominant.

Another danger of beta brainwave frequencies is that they are known to create a much more vivid dreaming state for the person who is frequently a sleeper. If a person frequently dreams while they are sleeping, then they should avoid using beta brainwave frequencies. The reason behind is that they will be waking up during the REM stage of sleep, which are incredibly vivid dreams that can include dragons, fairies, unicorns, and all sorts of other things. The reason that they are more vivid though, is due to the fact that beta brainwave frequencies are inducing vivid dreaming states for the person, which will in turn cause them to remember more of their dreams. They will have vivid dreams that they can relate to better when they are awake.

One last danger of using beta brainwave frequencies, is that they can cause you to have problems with your eyesight. This is because when you are using these frequencies, your brain waves are more concentrated, so they enter your visual cortex more quickly. As a result of this, when you are trying to focus on a task, you may find that it takes longer for your eyes to focus and remain on target. Beta brainwave frequencies are also known to cause a problem with eyesight in some people, so if you regularly use beta brainwave frequencies, you should always make sure to use some form of eye exercise to help prevent this from happening.

Using beta brainwave frequencies is not something that you need to be concerned about, but you should still be cautious about what you are listening to. Many people listen to music at high levels when they are beta brainwave, and this has been found to be very dangerous. This is because these high levels of brainwaves can block the release of important brain chemicals such as serotonin. Serotonin is crucial in the process of sleeping and is needed for a good night's sleep. It is also used for relaxation, which is why if you are a person who likes to listen to a lot of music while they are sleeping, you should be aware that doing so can be very dangerous.

Overall, beta brainwave frequencies are great for relieving many common symptoms, and you should never fear using them for too long. Even if you never suffer from problems caused by them, you will still find that using these brainwave frequencies on a regular basis can be very helpful. Just make sure that you are careful when you are using them. Also, keep in mind that while Beta brainwave frequencies are wonderful for relieving certain symptoms, they are not the best choice for everyone.
