What is “Alpha” meditation? Alpha brain waves operate between 8 and 13 cycles per second. This brainwave frequency occurs during day dreaming, fantasizing and creative visualization. This brainwave frequency is often associated with a deeply relaxed state, and with light trance or meditation. It can make for a very refreshing and relaxing “break” during the day, especially when times are stressful. For those new to this type of mediation, Alpha can be quite profound. We recommend starting at Alpha.
Do you fear criticism and rejection? Are you unable to trust your Self? An ego boost is deep inside you, just minutes away!
The Solar Plexus Chakra, or Manipura, rules lessons involving fear of rejection, your self esteem, sensitivity to criticism, a distorted self image, and fear of your “secrets being found out”. The wisdom of the Solar Plexus involves your sense of personal power and knowing, your personality and your sense of belonging. An imbalance in the Manipura might manifest as poor decisions, poor concentration, trouble taking action and getting things done, and an inability to judge a situation accurately. Imbalances in this Chakra can create feelings that you are more, or less, than other people. Emotional memories are stored within the Manipura, and it is where your ‘gut feelings’ originate, it is the center of your emotional life, and many are naturally connected to the environment through the Solar Plexus chakra.
