How to Reach a Theta State of Mind Without Machines — 47 Comments

  1. This felt so good! I could feel something going through my entire body. I felt much better and will keep doing this often! 🙂

    • Thank you for this!

      I have tired some relaxing, Alfa level visualization, but I did not think that this would be so easy 🙂

      Last night I tried this two times. When the “ball” rise above my head, I felt strange vibrations on my head.

      In the Divine light I asked that I´ll get contact with my Guarding Angels and that My Third Eye would be open…

      Today I woke up, did 10 min Reiki (head and heart).
      After that I walked to the bathrooms sink I was blacked out form the right eye (it was like very bright searchlight).

      After few seconds I got my eyesight back and I saw one big colorless vibrating ring (I closed one eye and after the other, but the ring did not disappear).

      When I went outside the ring disappear, but I was happy and little bit confused.

  2. Is it common to have significantly increased heart rates both during and for hours following this Theta meditation?
    I’m enjoying this new experience, which comes at a critical time in my life, the passing of my husband.Thank you so much!

    • I experienced this as well my heart rate was increasing and I felt weird sensations in my stomach. I believe I was in theta and it was a definite shift in my body!!

  3. You stumped me on that one. I would think slower heart rate. Some people get an increased heart rate during OBE’s and such. This Theta state could have maybe brought you some place similar as far as the brain is concerned. Was there any anxiety happening? If you want to be safe, you can always ask a doctor. It’s possible that you might be slightly ungrounded because you’re not used to this yet. Shortening your time in Theta and maybe doing things that are more grounding before Theta might help. Also, sometimes the heart might get excited when there’s a lot of new energy flowing through you.

  4. Is it really this easy? I’ve done exercises much more advanced than this and I didn’t feel any different. Are there any ways to test whether I’m in Theta yet?

    • Oh my lord, I was almost at the part with the huge ball of bluish light, and then I felt some sensation in my head. Is this normal? 😮

      • You may feel stuff. It’s certainly normal. Some people won’t feel anything. At least not the first 100 times. All of that’s normal.

  5. thank you…this was very helpful and effective. I was considering whether to purchase expensive recordings to help meditation brain wave states

    • If you do that, go with the Delta. Especially the multi-level ones like Centerpointe’s “The End” program.

  6. Hey Tom, I have a question about writing down what comes through my mind when I’m in the state. If I open my eyes to write something down, wouldn’t that bring me out of theta?

    • It can. If you need to write things down, make it as easy as possible to do so. If you do happen to slip out of that state, go right back into it. With practice, you can go back into it in one second. It doesn’t have to be an incredibly vivid visualization. The visual component of my imagination is very vague and abstract, but this stuff still works.

  8. Hi Tom,

    I mediatate though not regularly. There is a youtube vedio by Naomi on Angel Contact and healing. I find it very useful and it helps me see beautiful spiritual world that is full of pleasent joy. Naomi also grounds you and connect you to the central sun to get you coonected. I have beautiful visions in my mediatative state. I love it, suddenly after reading your article on theta healing, i realized its the same state where I go but i never knew i can ask questions there, actually i feel so happy in that moment that I just get swayed.

  9. Tom,

    This is quite amazing. I have a question; I had kinda lost my way here for some years. Got taken by the clutter and havee not meditated in years. Would you recommend me to do this exercise? If so, do you think I’d be able to reach Theta? If you don’t recommend it, what ‘would’ you recommend for me to get back in alignment?

    Sincerely,

    Sabs

    • If you want to use this as a meditation, go for it. You can hang out in that place of light. Otherwise, just ease yourself into it. Build a momentum by practicing meditation every day. Use some of the tips on other posts to integrate it into daily life. That’s not a prerequisite for this Theta exercise though.

  10. Tom, thank you very much for this deep explanation. I really am stuck in becoming a white ball of light and gathering consciousness while travelling through my body. Is it my inexperience (i.e. I have not tried sufficiently) or am I doing it wrong? When you become a ball of light do you dissociate – are you looking from outside to the ball or are you in the ball.

    Sorry for this basic question but I am really eager to learn this.

  11. I’ve been trying to follow this meditation, but don’t seem to be able to stay with it. I keep drifting off at tangents and just can’t keep the visualization going. If I ‘see’ the things suggested at all I can only hold the images for a second or less, and usually begin to fall asleep at that point.

    I have always been very literal-minded, and suggestions such as “gather the body consciousness” have no meaning at all for me. I think I may have to stick to binaural beats, although these tend to send me to sleep very quickly. I need another way.

  12. I did the theta state once for about an hour. Before entering, I managed to gain a state of mind where I already had everything I wanted. Within an hour my ex-husband rang me (I had achieved the state of mind to be over him) and the next day I woke up to find my email full of offers of work(I am a freelancer). This area of life and thinking should receive more funding for investigation. People think we are advanced as a race but I believe we are only just beginning to find out what the human mind can do

    • The underground part is optional. Many people find that it helps to do that at least part of the time because then they’re less spacey afterward. It helps people to keep grounded.

    Thank you for this!

  14. Hi Tom.. how are you. . I am very fond of meditation.. but due to my daily schedules I am also busy… when one meets the state of theta or OBE.. is this a real state or an illusion like dream state.. is it a state as clear as our physical plane… or a semi conscious state…

  15. Thanks for explaining this so well. I am quite grounded – sometimes too much so – so that part is easy. It’s also fairly easy to go out into the universe but I don’t seem to be able to stay for long so I’ve been using a binaural beets theta meditation. It’s just the hertz, no music or sounds and what I find is that after about 20 minutes I just fall asleep. Is it still working after that or am I just using it to pass into delta? I do notice that my sleep is much deeper than before but I would like to be able to use this during my day without falling asleep all of the time. How do I get to that point? Thanks for your input and again the great meditation.

    • The calming effect is a given. In some cases, your brain is overwhelmed and that’s the reason for not wanting to be conscious. If that’s the case, then you just keep doing it until the overwhelm is gone. If you do fall asleep, then that’s going to have its own effect on brainwave activity anyway.

  17. Hi Tom, I enjoyed the grounding part of this meditation but as soon as I allowed my white light to pop out of my head I started to feel overwhelmed, anxious, nauseated, my heart rate increased, and felt like laughing nervously. Iv’e been meditating for many years and sometimes have similar feelings or feelings of fear. I generally do best with practicing grounding, love, and trust so I wonder if this is too much for me. I might continue to practice and ease in to exiting my head and see if that helps. Would love to know if you have any other advice?

  18. I have no issues with this meditation but how do we know that we are theta? Do you have any EEG? Otherwise, it is a claim. The problem is most people lose consciousness after ALPHA-THETA border and thalamus will shut down. So point in programming there without thalamus. Advice me Otherwise. Thanks

  19. Hi Tom,

    I entered the theta state of mind unknowingly. I was terrified. There was a light that emanated from the crown of my head and it went straight beyond the stars. I followed it to the end and it opened in front of me like a door, I entered thus when I was struck by fear. So I got so interested in knowing what really happened to me. Thus when I came upon your teaching. But my problem is that I can not got there again no matter how many times I try.

  20. I read on a website that it is dangerous to do this kind of meditation because we are actually accessing the GRAY’S. Is this possible. Also, if god is within us, why do we have to go out of the body to connect to God conciousness.

  21. I saw what I thought was a sword, but actually it was a torch with flames and a long blade protruding from the flames. The blade was very white, glowing white. The handle of the torch was gold and had two golden serpents entwined around it, but each had the head of a lion rather than a serpent ending at the hilt of the torch. Anyone have any idea what this is?

  22. I can’t coordinate visualizing being a white ball and at the same time traveling through my body. What can I do to make it easier?
