Alpha waves fall in the middle of the brain wave spectrum. Increasing alpha brain waves can stimulate creativity and minimize depression. Neuroscientists recently made a correlation between an increase of alpha brain waves—either through electrical stimulation or mindfulness and meditation—and the ability to reduce depressive symptoms and increase creative thinking.
Your brain produces these waves when you’re not focusing too hard on anything in particular. Whatever you’re doing, you’re probably feeling relatively calm and relaxed. These waves measure between 8 and 12 Hz.
Alpha waves affect the brains function in the awake condition. When we relax with our closed eyes we produce a certain amount of Alpha waves. However once we start concentrating/thinking Alpha waves are blocked or reduced in amplitude. Likewise if you get drowsy Alpha activity will also drop down. Thus, in order to stay in the high Alpha state, you must keep a certain balance between drowsiness and alertness. Alpha waves represent a door between the outer and the inner world — between the unconscious and the conscious mind.
