Brainwaves are divided into four main categories, namely: Alpha, Beta, Delta, and Theta waves:
Alpha - (7.5 - 13 Hz) - Relaxed but
aware (meditation or hypnogogic state)
Beta - (13 - 40 Hz) - Normal focused awareness. This is associated with conversation, complex
tasks, and problem solving. During a typical day an individual experiences all the brainwave patterns; however, Beta is the predominant one
Delta - (0.5 - 3 Hz) - Deep sleep / unconsciousness
Theta - (3.5 - 7.5 Hz) - Deep relaxation, light sleep. This is associated with
deep meditative states, and 'flashes of inspiration'

When do Alpha Patterns Appear?
An alpha pattern appears when an individual is wakeful, and where there is a 'relaxed and effortless alertness'. Consequently, this is a good state to be in to maximise creative visualization, auto-suggestion, and hypnosis techniques.
