The Concept Behind Instant
The Basic Concept in nutshell :
Our brain ( and its billions of neurons) function by producing tiny
electrical waves known as brainwaves. It has been observed in scientific
experiments that Meditation brings a change in the frequency of
these brainwaves. What scientists have devised is a way to externally
influence the frequency of these brainwaves and take it to any desired level of
frequency. Using this method, the frequencies of brainwaves during the
Deep Sleep, Relaxation, Hypnosis and other Spiritual Experiences
been identified. Using specialized sounds, these frequencies can be reproduced in the brain
thus leading to an experience of spiritual phenomenon.

Introduction to Brainwaves & EEG
When somebody meditates, what are the things he experience during
Some of the most common outcome of regular meditation are :
A peaceful and relaxed stated of consciousness, Better health, Deep
sleep, more energy, calm mind, increase in the confidence level and a
positive outlook towards life. (For more detail read :

Several researches have been conducted to study the effects of
meditation on our body. The brains of many meditation monks have been
investigated to study the changes that happen inside the brain during
meditation. It has been observed that meditation results in a change in
electrical waves activity in the brain. These electrical activities are
measured with the help of a scientific instrument known as
Let us understand it in some more detail:
When I say
'Electrical activity' in brain what do I really mean?
Whether you believe it or not, a tiny electrical activity is always
present throughout the body and is a byproduct of the activity within
every living cell. As long as one is alive, his/her body cell will be
involved in some kind of activity. Though as an organic whole, we often
become oblivious of various kind of activities happening inside our
body, they are always there inside and can be measured using specialized
As you read this webpage, thousands of activities are going on in your
body. Your heart is pumping blood, your kidneys are filtering out the
unwanted chemicals from body, your blood is circulating and carrying
oxygen to various parts of your body, your breathing process is going
on, your intestines and stomach are digesting the food you ate a few
hours ago, your hairs and nails are growing...I can go on and on.
All these activities, at the very basic level, are being performed by
trillions of living cells in your body. Individual biological cells
survive by transferring electrically charged particles, called ions,
across their cell membranes. This flow produces an electrical current
that could be detected with sufficiently sensitive equipment. Measuring
the electrical activity of the heart and brain is an established medical
procedure, but detecting normal cellular electrical activity at a
micro-level is still a major challenge. However, scientists are working
on solving this problem. (Read

Your brain is made up of billions of brain cells called neurons, which
use tiny electric impulses to communicate with each other. (Read more:
How Neurons communicate
with each other) The combination of millions of neurons sending
signals to each other produces an enormous amount of electrical activity
in the brain, which can be detected using sensitive medical equipment
(such as an EEG). The combination of electrical activity of the brain is
commonly called a Brainwave pattern, because of its cyclic, 'wave-like'
nature. The electroencephalograph (EEG) was invented by Hans Berger in
1930. An EEG is recorded using electrodes attached to one’s scalp, or
via the implantation of needle-like electrodes directly into various
portions of the brain.
The EEG recording, called an electroencephalogram displays the
electrical activity as waves, which in the past was drawn onto paper
like a seismograph, and is now digitized in most labs. This wave-like
property of the electrical signals led to the term “brainwaves.”
Depending upon their frequencies, these brainwaves have been classified
into 5 categories :
Theta (4-8Hz); and
Although any of these frequencies can occur at any electrode site of the
brain, alpha waves are often recorded at posterior sites, theta waves at
frontal sites, and gamma waves over sensory cortices.
Each of these wave patterns have been correlated through studies with
various conscious phenomena such as sleep, attention, meditation,
hypnosis, music, and relaxation etc. other areas.
In order to understand the whole philosophy behind Instant Meditation,
we need to understand these five types of brainwave frequencies in some
more detail as you will soon see that entire 'Instant Meditation'
Industry revolves around altering our consciousness in tune with these
brain wave frequencies.
