There are four brain cycles that correspond to different levels of awareness or being. Beta is the brain wave state that corresponds to focused attention and the highest state of being awake. The alpha brain wave state happens when we relax and begin to daydream. It is a state where a person is relaxed and open to stimuli. Theta is essentially hypnosis and it is the brain wave state where a person is the most open to suggestions. It is a very creative part of the mind. This is why hypnosis is so effective and why suggestions given in a trance are so are taken up so easily by the person under hypnosis. Delta is sleep with periods of dreaming called REM sleep or rapid eye movements. Each of us goes through all of these brain wave states each morning and every night and each stage is essential for optimal physical and emotional health. This excellent hypnosis MP3 for sleep with beach imagery can restore this delicate balance. Using hypnosis accesses the subconscious brain which is the most suggestible brain wave state. Therefore suggestions to establish a healthy sleep cycle are picked up there and are viewed as orders for the body. This is an effective prescription for a truly restful night’s sleep.
