Meditation Practice + Brainwave States
Meditation helps you be in a state of relaxation. It helps you release the tension that you are feeling. It can bring you awareness and pulsation to your surroundings. When it comes to meditation, you should know what meditation posture you would be doing. It can be sitting, lying, standing, and walking.
There are various types of brainwave states. Beta is defined as an old patterning mind. Meanwhile, theta focuses on a person’s awake state but not particularly you. In this podcast, Cate will share the process of meditation and the different types of brainwave states.

- “Keep allowing yourself to relax and be aware of the sensations.”
- “Nothing else needs to matter right now. There’s no need to do this right. There’s no doing it wrong. There’s simply the outside coming in and the inside moving out.”
- “Allow your awareness to be at the boundary of your skin.”
- “When humans don’t hit deep sleep for long enough, it causes dementia.”
- “What’s hard about sleep deprivation is that it triggers adrenaline addiction”
- “If we’re sleep-deprived, the mind and body are in an adrenaline addiction cycle where it’s producing cortisol in greater quantities at the wrong times of the day.”
- “You’re not meditating to have insights and thoughts. That’s a different practice.”
