How It Works
Through the scientific study of our brains and with modern technology, brain activity can be measured and charted on computer screens. Mind Phasing allows you to get your brainwaves into a specific desired state, and/or match your brainwaves with another’s, whereby you can create deeper connections.
Brain Wave Frequencies
Brainwaves are electrical impulses in the brain. An individual’s behavior, emotions, and thoughts are communicated between neurons within our brains. All brainwaves are produced by synchronized electrical pulses from neurons communicating with each other. Our brainwaves occur at various frequencies. Some are fast and some are slow. The classic names of these are delta, theta, alpha, beta, and gamma. They are measured in cycles per second or hertz (Hz).
Delta brainwaves (1-3 Hz) are the slowest, highest amplitude brain waves, and are what we experience when we are asleep. In general, different levels of awareness are associated with dominant brainwave states.
Theta brainwaves (4-7 Hz) represent a day-dreamy, spacey state of mind that is associated with mental inefficiency. At very slow levels, theta brain wave activity is a very relaxed state, representing the twilight zone between waking and sleep.
Alpha brainwaves (8-12 Hz.) are slower and larger. They are associated with a state of relaxation and represent the brain shifting into an idling gear, waiting to respond when needed. If we close our eyes and begin picturing something peaceful, there is an increase in alpha brainwaves.
Beta brainwaves (13 – 38 Hz) are small, faster brainwaves associated with a state of mental, intellectual activity and outwardly focused concentration. This is basically state of alertness.
Gamma brainwaves (39 – 42 Hz) are the fastest and most subtle brain waves. Gamma rhythms modulate perception and consciousness.
Brain cells communicate with each other through electrical impulses. An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a machine used to evaluate the electrical activity in the brain which tracks and records brainwave patterns and translates these onto a two-person compatible screen in real-time for you to see and understand.
For this to work, traditionally, small flat metal discs called electrodes are attached to your scalp with wires. The electrodes detect tiny electrical charges that result from the activity of your brain cells and can tell you which brainwave 'state' you are in.
Types of EEG Machines
Traditionally, EEG machines have only been used in medical settings, and have been largely inaccessible for the general population. However, new and novel technology has been developed and there are now lighter, more portable EEG machines that don't require electrodes to be attached to the scalp, nor an encoder.
The newest addition to the EEG family is portable headbands. These newer EEG headbands also boast the technology to connect directly to smartphone apps, so that you can read, train, and visualize your brainwaves right in the palm of your hand.
Putting it All Together
Once you and/or your partner are hooked up to an EEG headband and can see your brainwaves on the screen in real-time in front of you, Dr. Anne Watson will work with you to help 'sync' your brainwaves so that they can get into a specific desired 'state', including personal 'meditative' states as well as connecting with others.
Although Mind Phasing can occur when two people are oscillating in any of the Hz ranges, the ideal range is Alpha since these waves are stronger than the others. These waves are visually appealing and beautiful, sinusoidal, representing calm and focus - ideal states for phasing. Alpha waves are targeted when training Mind Phasing candidates.
By phasing your brainwaves, you can reduce stress as well as reconnect with your partner like when you first met or fell in love.
Dr. Watson provides visualized brain activity to help people who have trouble connecting to actually control their brainwaves in order to connect with one another. Getting people into the same mind state as each other, to phase their brainwaves, she gives them a feeling of connection with each other.
