If you have been following my posts, you know that I am currently reading "The Silva Mind Control Method" book. In the book, Alpha and Theta states of brain wave frequency are mentioned a lot, and Alpha as the best state of the brain to conjure and imagine what you want and ACTUALLY make it happen.
Below is a good description of these states.

“What would happen if you could reduce the resistance in the human brain?”
Would doing this cause it to be more efficient at absorbing information, and perhaps even grant it access to reservoirs of previously hidden creativity and intuition?
Driven by this theory, Silva began a thorough process of research and experimentation, starting with his own children. By training them to function at brain frequency levels known as Alpha and Theta—levels of deep relaxation that most people experience while meditating or in light sleep—he was able to significantly improve their grades at school, and even found evidence ofenhanced intuitive functioning within them.
|State||Brain Wave Frequency|
(cycles per second)
|Beta||14-21 and higher||Waking state, the five senses. Perception of time and space.|
|Alpha||7-14 and higher||Light sleep, meditation, intuition. No time and space limitation.|
|Theta||4-7 and higher||Deeper sleep, meditation.|
|Delta||0-4 and higher||Deep sleep. You are unconscious at Delta.|
In the following years, Silva began sharing his methods with other people in his community. What he found was that by teaching people to consciously guide themselves to the Alpha and Theta level of mind through Centering Techniques, he could show many of them how to, while fully conscious, reprogram their minds like a computer.
