How a Little Bit of Mindfulness Can Impact Your Day
Do you often struggle with stress or feel like you’re stuck in the same old patterns that lower your quality of life? Are you sick of the negative thoughts and worries that run through your head on a daily basis? Mindfulness might be just the thing to help.
With the help of electroencephalography (EEG), which was developed by Hans Berger in the early 1900s, we were able to discover that the brain has its own frequencies as well. In fact, there are five different kinds of waves that the brain emits during different stages of consciousness, focus, and relaxation:
Gamma: >40 Hz. Present during times of unusually high-level information processing and while gaining insight.
Beta: 14-40 Hz. Present during times of moderately sustained focus and while using reasoning abilities and logic.
Alpha: 7.5-14 Hz. Present when you are relaxed and your mind can rest/wander.
Theta: 4-7.5 Hz. Present during light meditation, REM sleep (dreams), and very deep relaxation.
Delta: 0.5-4 Hz. Present during deep, dreamless sleep and in very deep and sustained meditation.
The human body also has its own frequency. Several studies show that the body’s average resonant frequency is right around 10 Hz, with some research showing that it may be closer to 12 Hz.
Thanks to the thousands of lightning storms that rage around the planet at all times, the Earth has a “repeating atmospheric heartbeat,” known as the Schumann Resonance. This is an extremely low-frequency wave (ELF) that remains around 10 Hz and can go as low as ~8 Hz.
What Is Mindfulness?

Why Does Frequency Matter?
There is evidence that interference from electromagnetic fields may have several adverse effects on our health and well-being.
This includes both natural electromagnetic fields, which have been proven through studying circadian rhythms to affect human beings, as well as artificially made electromagnetic fields produced by the electric grid, technology, telecommunication, etc.
This is especially true for people that work closely with electromagnetic radiation for a long period of time. Long-term exposure may cause psychological changes, genetic effects, and reduced immune function.
The Earth, the human body, and the relaxed brain all display very similar frequencies一at least they’re supposed to. This is why it’s important to bring the mind and the body back to ~10 Hz as often as possible. Realigning yourself and harmonizing your body and brain with the resonant frequency of the Earth can help you stay healthy both mentally and physically.
Using Meditation To Achieve Harmony
The good news is that the brain often cannot tell the difference between reality, visualization, and dreams. This is why you might blush or notice an elevated heart rate when you remember (or imagine) an embarrassing or shameful moment, and why you can wake up from a dream laughing or crying as if you had truly experienced the events created by your sleeping mind.
This is what makes meditation and visualization such powerful tools. Meditation, mindfulness, breathing exercises, and visualization can lead to brainwaves of a lower frequency, which helps us realign ourselves with both our bodies and the Earth. This is a great way to battle stress, calm the body and the brain, and bring yourself back into harmony.
Getting Started With Meditation
There are many different ways to meditate, and there are some easy tips and tricks that you can put into practice today to help improve your experience, such as breathwork and brain training.
The goal is to quiet the mind, bring yourself back to the present moment, and intentionally alter the state of your brainwaves. This can provide a break from the stressors of daily life and help you gain more control over your own mind. In terms of aligning frequencies, consistent meditation practice may also help you maintain good health and well-being in the long run.
Tech-assisted meditation can also be beneficial to people who wish to enhance their meditation practice. Vibroacoustic therapy mixes vibration and sound and is based on the above principles about how different frequencies have different effects on human health and wellness. InHarmony’s products use vibroacoustic technology to help you reach a deeper meditative state and stay in it for longer. This allows you to get the most you possibly can out of your meditation practice.
Everything in the universe is in constant movement and all matter has its own frequency. The various electromagnetic fields on Earth can have adverse effects on our physical and mental health, especially over time. Meditation, mindfulness, and visualization can help bring our brains and bodies back into alignment with the resonant frequency of the Earth.
The best way of doing this is by being consistent in your meditation and mindfulness practice and continuing to learn about how you can elevate your experience.

How Meditation Can Increase Mindfulness
Meditation can be practiced to encourage mindfulness. Mindfulness meditation might involve breathing exercises, acknowledgment of bodily sensations, and recognizing and realigning the thoughts that pass through your mind.
This practice can be completed in many different ways. Some people have a scheduled time during which they sit down, close their eyes, and breathe intentionally while clearing their minds. Others are able to constantly practice and utilize mindfulness throughout the day. Many people may greatly benefit from tech-assisted meditation and vibroacoustic therapy when trying to improve their meditation practice and become more mindful.
The Practical Impact Mindfulness Has on Your Everyday Life
Mindfulness takes away stress related to our past actions and the uncertainty of the future by cementing us in the present moment. Practicing mindfulness meditation can give us greater insight into who we are as individuals and why we react negatively or positively in certain situations.
It can give us a break from everyday distractions and responsibilities, and reminding us that we can choose to react to life in a healthier and more beneficial way.
More and more benefits of mindfulness and meditation are being researched each year. A few different studies have already shown that consistent mindfulness practices can help reduce anxiety, prevent and treat depression, and make us kinder and more accepting of others.
