there are plenty of theta beat videos that you can listen to on youtube ... these induce the theta state ... here is an example

  1. Close your eyes and look at the point between your eyes.
  2. Observe the train of thought for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Focus on the gaps between your thoughts. Or focus on the background silence behind the train of thought.
  4. Observe the silence/gaps for a while.
  5. After a while observe the gaps/silence and the observer at the same time. Observe the oberver!

This way you can reach Theta or even Alpha State easily.

Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my question and sharing such a great diagram.

I think what you refer to is the most refined Awareness we can experience and is referred to in QE as Pure Eufeeling.

Thoughts = Common Consciousness

No thought = Pure Awareness

Awareness of Pure Awareness = Eufeeling

Stillness within Eufeeling = Pure Eufeeling.

I recommend Quantum Entrainment techniques to help you achieve this state. It's very easy to learn and is inexpensive.

I studied QE when I came up with THT. THT is like instant Pure Awareness.

@Satori Good explanation of the different pure awareness states! Stillness within Eufeeling feels very Vortex-like to me. Would you agree? Or at least afterwards i can easily appreciate things and get in the vortex fast.

Thank you I am grateful for your input and sharing your knowledge.

@Releaser99- I can only describe Pure Eufeeling as a sensation of everything stopping or absolute stillness. I'm sure yourself or other meditators have experienced this before. It is a very profound experience and it is described in detail in Frank Kinslows book Eufeeling. The book also has a section on QE intention on how to make intentions from this state of Awareness.:)

(03 Feb '13, 19:08) Satori

@Satori Now i know what you mean. I think what i was referring to is just Eufeeling. It sometimes feels like being in the vortex - this euphoric feeling. I'll read "Eufeeling" again soon. Thanks.

(03 Feb '13, 19:21) releaser99

@Releaser99- The Eufeeling is the minds first manifestation of Pure Awareness. Eufeelings are always different and can be experienced as simple stillness or calm right up to bliss. That's why it's better not to get attached to the strength of Eufeeling. No one Eufeeling is better than another. How aware you are of whatever your experiencing is what's important:)

I would love to have someone test this to see what brain waves are doing. Based on my research though, Two Hands Touching should get you there. Place the palms of your hands together and close your eyes. Ask yourself quietly in your mind, "What do my hands feel like?" Then feel the answer in your hands. Don't try to name the feelings, don't try to think or not think, just feel your hands. Do this for at least 30 seconds and up to as long as you like. Do this as often as you think of it and every time you need it for stress, fears, obsessive thoughts, hiccups, headaches, depression, etc... Try it on everything, but expect nothing. Just wait for the results.

Since it gets you to a neutral place, it makes affirmations, etc... more effective.

Thank you. I tried this and became very aware of being still and peaceful. Thank you for sharing.

@nonny192 You are welcome. I am glad you like it.

Anything from you belong to you.Why do you ask how do i reach theta state with out buying expensive course? The simple way is to get to know your self.Who is the observer of your self?Is it not you?Be aware Know your self.Meditate,be aware find your peace and rest,solve your own inner division.

Cortical theta rhythms observed in human scalp EEG are a different phenomenon, with no clear relationship to the hippocampus. In human EEG studies, the term theta refers to frequency components in the 4–7 Hz range, regardless of their source. Cortical theta is observed frequently in young children. In older children and adults, it tends to appear during drowsy, meditative, or sleeping states, but not during the deepest stages of sleep. Several types of brain pathology can give rise to abnormally strong or persistent cortical theta waves.

Later studies showed that theta frequently begins several hundred milliseconds before the onset of movement, and that it is associated with the intention to move rather than with feedback produced by movement (Whishaw & Vanderwolf, 1973). The faster an animal runs, the higher the theta frequency.


Who is having the intention to move is it not you?

so you are in the theta state as long as you observe your though emotion and intention before making the choice to do something outside of you. example: like moving. so the rabbit theta higher frequency would mean that he is observing him self between each movement observing and having the intention move faster.

like this:intention to move,choice,move,intention to move faster,choice,move faster. and so on and so on.

But a human usely is at the same frequency.

like this:intention to move,choice,move,not moving fast enuff,choice, move faster.

could it be that the rabbit is observing himself from the observer point of view and it reflect in is speed.

and the human see himself from the out side as a machine to be control(the observed)?

will also tell you something about the rabbit, the rabbit is almost blind short vision.then he does not go as much as by what he see but by what he feels.

and i will remember this sentance from the tao to you.

The five colors blind the eye.

The five tones deafen the ear.

The five flavors dull the taste.

Racing and hunting madden the mind.

Precious things lead one astray.

Therefore the sage is guided by what he feels and not by what he sees.

He lets go of that and chooses this.


If you close your mind in judgements and traffic with desires, your heart will be troubled. If you keep your mind from judging and aren't led by the senses, your heart will find peace.

Seeing into darkness is clarity. Knowing how to yield is strength. Use your own light and return to the source of light. This is called practicing eternity.

My teachings are easy to understand and easy to put into practice. Yet your intellect will never grasp them, and if you try to practice them, you'll fail.

My teachings are older than the world. How can you grasp their meaning?

If you want to know me, look inside your heart.

Thank you for sharing. I appreciate your time and knowledge.

If I remember correctly, someone teaching this discribed Theta as the state a happy three to four year old tends to be / stay in. So you may receive alot of techniques on how to get there, but I think the most important thing to know is 'WHAT IS IT?". All states have a measurable vibration. So the vibrational state called THETA is acquirable by variable means. One Guru I know on, says to roll your eyes up in your head whilst imagining souring through the stars. Others will teach other techniques. But I find the best thing is to just know what it is you're attempting to achieve, remember back to when you used to effortlessly be in it, go back to one of those moments. Immerse yourself in it and voila you have achieved that state. Too simple? Well, I can't help you otherwise than to say, have a measuring machine next to you to see if your vibrations are below, within or above the THETA 'recognised' limits and whatever you do, feel good about it!

Thank you for taking the time to share. I appreciate this. I don't care about measurements, just achieving the state. I kept being told there was only one way and that was to pay for a certain training.

I used to use Mindtek CDs by Dane Spotts.

These Ultra Meditation CDs are designed to take you deep into Theta mind.

Mind-Tek These are very powerful CDs.

Thank you I will look into this.

I really like the CD's by Dr. Jeffrey Thompson (http://neuroacoustic.com/

They entrain your brainwaves into whatever brainwave state you desire (including different levels of Theta). Of course a good meditation practice will get you there as well. I've tried combining the cd's with meditation and I liked the result.

You dont necessarily have to do all these excercises.

Just realize/remember simply that whatever emotions you are feeling, you do not have to identify with them. Feel and observe- this includes everything too not just your inner state- the outside world also.
