Meditation and brainwaves

Our brain is a electro chemical organ and the electrical activity that is in our brain can be put in four different categories, or brainwaves:


Brainwaves determine our state of consciousness and vibrates in different energy frequencies.

The first one is Beta and most adults function on this level, while small children function mainly at Theta, Alpha and Delta.

A little explanation:

BETA: We are at this level when we are awake, thinking and living everyday life. It’s the engaged mind that is occupied in doing everyday things.

There are levels within every frequency of brainwave activity, and when we are in high Beta for example we can be performing something like; speaking in front of public, singing or communicating in debates etc, while the lower frequencies is when we are doing our work etc, ordinary things.

In Beta we can also be agitated, tense, afraid and worried. (That’s why small children often function on the other levels; because they don’t know of the mind-made fears that adults have)

ALPHA: This one is when we are relaxed and have an effortless alertness. This is where most people go when we meditate, and it’s really good when we do visualizations, hypnosis, self-suggestions, affirmations etc because in Alpha we have opened the door to our subconscious mind and we can install new programs (new beliefs) more easily when we are in this state.

Note that this is also the state we are in when we watch TV and movies, so what we watch is being absorbed by our subconscious mind like a sponge. That’s why I think it’s important to be very selective with what we watch.

In Alpha we learn more easily, and we get mental clarity. Very good to be in to release tense and fearful feelings and thoughts.

The deeper frequencies of Alpha, the deeper the meditation.

THETA: This is a even deeper state of mind. When Alpha is where we are in a light meditative state, in Theta we are in our most positive state of mind, we go deeper.

Here new ideas flow freely to us, we get inspiration easily, answers comes to us. And it’s also a state we are in when we do automatic tasks like brushing our hair, driving on a freeway, when we shower etc, when we don’t need a lot of concentration.

In Theta we get sudden insights etc. Many great ideas comes to us when we lie in a bath tub for example, or when we take a shower. Here we can also develop our psychic abilities, creativity and we can get a sense of “floating”. Very relaxing.

DELTA: In this state of consciousness we are in a deep sleep, we explore our consciousness and it’s here where we can make astral projections and have out of body experiences. It’s a state of dreamless sleep.

Alpha, Theta and Delta is considered to be “altered states of consciousnesses” and it’s here where most children are, while adults are in Beta most of the time because of the fear we have for so many things.

Children on the other hand has not yet forgotten who and what they are and so they are in the more beneficial states.

That is why meditation is so important. Because when we go from the sometimes tense place of Beta when we feel worried etc and go to Alpha we get to experience peace, and solutions can enter our mind more easily.

So the times when we feel worried, we should take a few minutes and just breath and relax ourselves into a state of Alpha where we automatically release the fear that we produce in the state of Beta.

I just love brainwave meditations and there are so many to chose from, but what they basically do is that they get you to these particular states in minutes.

I can recommend:

These kinds of meditations should always be listened to with headset/ear plugs, and read the caution-information first, because this is very powerful stuff.

It’s absolutely something I can recommend to anyone, especially if you have no idea of how to meditate; this kind of meditation will take you to the different states of consciousness within minutes and you just have to relax and enjoy being carried away with the help of therapeutic sounds.

Transformational sessions with Maria

Any kind of suffering such as stress, fear, self-doubt and struggle comes from being out of alignment with yourself and the flow of Life.

Freedom, inner calm and confidence comes from moving into a perspective beyond your limited self and into a place of alignment.

Maria is the real deal. You will sense it the moment you lay eyes on her. She offered much, much more than I’ve derived from other teachers; highly specific and personal recommendations. It is as though I got a crash graduate course from spirit. Could not more highly recommend!

Maria is beyond amazing

And with only that one session and the healing she carried out, I’ve been without grudges, feelings of being hurt or anything on those lines. This feeling of peace and freedom is priceless.

I’ve never had a conversation like that before

I just wanted to say thank you so much again for our session yesterday, I’ve never had a conversation like that before and it was truly amazing.

I cannot believe what you were able to achieve in one session

I don’t really know where to start. I find myself at a loss for words. I have had many years of trying different therapies and solutions to my problems. All I can say to you is Thank You. This was unlike any healing session that I have ever been in and I say that from the bottom of my skeptical, over analytical heart who had literally tried every cure one could think of. I cannot recommend you enough to other people, you are a gift. I also cannot believe what you were able to achieve in one session, to me it is groundbreaking. Thank you!!!

Rosie Bebawi, Marbella, Spain

I have never felt more aligned to my true self

Maria’s awareness of energies and the conditions of the mind are truly impressive. She knows exactly what’s going on. She is so attuned to other peoples’ energy that she just knows where you’re at. After working with her I have never felt more alive and aligned to my true self.

Her unique ability to read your state helped me to breakthrough

Maria’s intuitive abilities have been instrumental to the personal growth I’ve experienced as a result of working together. I’ve had HUGE shifts in my beliefs. Her undivided attention, presence and unique ability to read your state helped me to breakthrough and release old patterns and replace them with new self-empowering practices that have truly shifted my life. I would highly recommend Maria to anyone. I am forever changed and forever grateful!

Joanna, USA

I was going through a spiritual shake up

Had it not been for you, I would have possibly fell into madness thinking I was just domestically “crazy” vs. going through a spiritual shake up. So, thank you for helping and giving me the encouragement to stand strong amidst experiences that I didn’t understand.

T. Freeman, Atlanta, USA

Profound shift

I can’t put into words how much you have helped me. I couldn’t have kept it all together had I not experienced a PROFOUND shift during and after my session with you.

I feel blissful

I don’t know if I make sense, but all I can say is that I feel blissful. And I can’t thank you enough for that. I don’t know exactly how you managed this, but you have really made a difference in how my mind works.

Silvia, Marbella, Spain

I was taken over by a peacefulness

After our session, something happened within me that I cannot explain nor would it even make sense to anyone. There was a part of me that felt my being been taken over by a real peacefulness that I’ve never encountered before. Sounds odd but it’s the truth.

The feeling of peace and freedom is priceless

With only that one session and the healing she carried out, I’ve been without grudges, feelings of being hurt or anything on those lines. This feeling of peace and freedom is priceless. Maria is beyond amazing. Had I not experienced it myself, I would probably not believe it. I recommend anyone who is trying hard to be truly free and really start walking down the path of self fulfillment and happiness to book a session with her.

Maria has an extraordinary insight on the process of spiritual awakening

Maria has an extraordinary insight and awareness on the process of spiritual awakening. My favorite thing about her is her honesty and transparency, she shares her experiences without holding back, and that makes her real and approachable.

Gia, Texas, USA

Working with Maria has been more transformational than any other thing that I’ve tried

I highly recommend Maria! I don’t even recognize the person who started working with her a few months ago. Maria clearly sees what is blocking, stopping or limiting you. Working with her has been more transformational than any other thing that I’ve tried. There have been profound shifts in the way I see myself and the world, so many shifts in my energy and life. I find myself so much lighter and freer. Thank you Maria!

Britt, Marbella, Spain

It was more than I could ever hoped for or expected

My experience with Maria was more than I could ever hoped for or expected. I had such a positive experience working with her. I feel like a huge weight have been lifted and I have so much more perspective on what I have been struggling with. She cleared up my energy and I feel more myself, more at peace and all around better mentally and emotionally since my sessions with her.

Miriam, Espoo, Finland

A calm came over me

I could feel the tension leaving my body and a calm came over me by just being in her presence. Everything flows so naturally with her and my life is more beautiful and I feel at peace knowing I have her by my side. I feel blessed to have her in my life.

Cecilia, Stockholm, Sweden

My life has changed dramatically

Since plugging in to your words of wisdom my life has changed dramatically. You pointed me in the right direction and that gave me courage to continue moving through whatever process I may find myself in and the ability to take refuge in the truth within me.

You can trust Maria with your heart and soul

I can’t stress enough what a gift it is to be able to work with somebody like Maria. Talk about amazing grace! I feel like this heavy weight of negativity has fallen away from me and I couldn’t get those awful feelings back if I tried. If you can trust one thing in your life right now, trust Maria. You can trust her with your heart and soul. I can tell you with absolute honesty and conviction that having a session with Maria is life-changing!

Lisa, USA

The distance healing was amazing

I felt at peace, and had a complete turnaround to my situation so many thanks for helping me transform something I had lost hope about. It’s a miracle and the outcome could not have turned out better! If you want to see a real shift not just psychological but spiritual shift, then Maria is the lady to see. I am so glad I found you and will book in another session soon!
