Relaxation Technique 6: Entering alpha state of mind by yourself

Continuing the subject of the previous Relaxation Technique 5: Inducing alpha and theta levels using audio programs, it is also possible to learn and enter the alpha state of mind by yourself, without the aid of special audio recordings. Of course, it requires some learning but has the benefit of allowing you better control over your brain. Jose Silva1 has dedicated his life to develop a technique to better utilize the human potential. His work is based on knowledge to enter and stay in the alpha state of mind. There are several ways to induce alpha state. Here’s one that works well for me:


  1. Sit comfortably or lie down, closing your eyes. Perform a number of deep breaths.
  2. Visualize the number 3 and say to yourself “Three” 3 times.
  3. Visualize the number 2 and say to yourself “Two” 3 times.
  4. Visualize the number 1 and say to yourself “One” 3 times.
  5. Visualize the number 10 and say “I’m relaxing”
  6. Visualize the number 9 and say “I’m calming down”
  7. Visualize the number 8 and say “I’m relaxing more and more”
  8. Visualize the number 7 and say “I’m calming down more and more”
  9. Visualize the number 6 and say “My consciousness is clear and tranquil”
  10. Visualize the number 5 and say “My whole body is relaxed”
  11. Visualize the number 4 and say “I’m so relaxed so that I can’t feel the weight of my body”
  12. Visualize the number 3 and say “I’m totally calm”
  13. Visualize the number 2 and say “I’m totally relaxed”
  14. Visualize the number 1 and say “I’m totally calm and totally relaxed. I’m at alpha.”

When you get to this point, you’ll be at alpha and should feel very relaxed. Note, that if you perform this while lying in bed and a bit tired, you can fall asleep even before your reach the end of this exercise. If you have trouble falling asleep, this is a good exercise to do every time you lie down and intend to sleep.

  3. Hey…. all your methods seem interesting…

  4. Thank you so much for this wonderful tips and tricks

    I believe that

    Meditation is only reality.
    Meditation is GOD

  5. can anyone teach me how Dr Vijayalaxmi teaches alpha mind control

  6. Hi Frnds,

    Just attend the class conducted by Dr Vijayalaxmi Panthiyan on Subconscious mind once, and you’l see that entering into alpha state will be so easy that you will master it and start playing with it, cos in any field if you want to gain mastery u need to have guru.

    Regards

  7. i’m gonna be completely honest:
    i have really low self esteem so one day when i went to school
    i don’t know what happened i could talk with anyone people asked me
    if i want to have lunch with then (that never happened)
    i even could read anyone’s face i had no perception of time
    the shyness was gone maybe i was in my alpha state but 2 days later
    i went back to my old self and i wasn’t able to get back to that state ever since
    so can anyone help me?

  8. cool….i hope that would be helful to everybody.

  9. All that is cool…. but no one seems to explain how you feel at alpha…. other than ‘you feel relaxed’. any other sensations , anything like that????pls inform

  10. kan anyone tell me how to do the 3 finger technique.do i have to put my tree fingers of my left hand together agains the top of my fingers from my left hand or what???

  11. I imagine a stair case, visual is easier for me. so you start at the bottom of the stair and with each step you become more relaxed and at the tenth stair you should be at alpha. And try not to fidget !! :D

  12. I have just read a great book called ‘the genie within your subconscious mind’ by harry carpenter. he has an audio on his webpage the has 6 or 8 12 minute tracks. going to alpha and theta and tense and relax and clearing method.

    the webpage is http://www.thegeniewithin.com

    have a good read

    michael

    • I went to the website but did not find the audio tracks – can you paste the link in a reply email and send it to me? Thanks!

  13. I do a mind clearing everyday. It doubles a stress relief technique plus polishes my gut feelings. The track carries me to alpha level everytime I listen to it. It is so therapeutic. You get to move around in a calm state after a few days of listening to it. It is that workable.

  14. I like my own mantra:

    Sit comfortably or lie down, closing your eyes. Perform a number of deep breaths.
    Visualize the number 3 and say to yourself “Three” 3 times.
    Visualize the number 2 and say to yourself “Two” 3 times.
    Visualize the number 1 and say to yourself “One” 3 times.
    Visualize the number 10 and say “I’m rich”
    Visualize the number 9 and say “I’m so rich”
    Visualize the number 8 and say “I’m getting richer”
    Visualize the number 7 and say “I’m getting richer and richer”
    Visualize the number 6 and say “My bankaccount is growing with enormous sums”
    Visualize the number 5 and say “I’m becoming a millionair”
    Visualize the number 4 and say “I’m becoming a multi-millionair”
    Visualize the number 3 and say “I’m becoming the reachest man in the world”
    Visualize the number 2 and say “YES!! YES!!!”
    Visualize the number 1 and say “I’m now the richest man on earth. I’m at alpha.”

    • Although I see what a nice mantra it is, I don’t think it would be very relaxing.

    • That’s the best way to get rich if practiced on daily basis get me back @ hitesh143star@yahoo.co.in if you find something new related to the
      subconscious minds.

      Thank you
      HItesh P.Thakkar.
