Delta brainwaves are the brainwaves of deep, dreamless sleep, and are the slowest and strongest of your brainwaves. They usually fall within the frequency range of 0 – 4 Hz.. Delta brainwaves are the brainwaves of true “unconscious-ness.” For the vast majority of us, when we are producing a high proportion of delta brainwaves, we are truly “out,” deep in an unaware, unconscious state. Some monks who have studied for decades can access this brainwave state consciously, but it requires years of disciplined practice to do so.
However, that doesn’t mean this brainwave is not without benefit; in fact, it is foundational to our health. Delta is found in stage 3 and 4 sleep, which are the sleep stages when the brain and body do very important things, healing, repairing, revitalizing, and fueling your brain up with glucose for the following day, so that your brain can feel bright, focused and alert while you are awake.
If you’re missing your delta activity, you’ll feel the effects: sluggishness, “brain-fog,” increase appetite, ensues, and over time contributes to anxiety, depression, weight gain, even heart disease and other illnesses, and accelerated aging. Obviously, making sure that your brain is producing the right amount and proportion of delta brainwaves during sleep is essential to your health. I’ve also heard from users who tell me that when they listen to delta brainwave music for sleeping, they sleep deeper and that stops them from snoring. This was certainly and unexpected benefit, and I’m sure not everyone has this experience, but some have and what a nice bonus!
Delta brainwaves are involved in intuition and psychic abilities, and training your brain to produce a greater proportion of delta brainwaves during your waking hours will increase these abilities in you.
