Give me 2 minuets and I will give you the Alpha relaxation state

The alpha state is a state where the mind can have suggestions placed to later become fixed belief s. Alpha relaxation is changing your mind state for the better by placing certain goals in your subconscious that they become real so you don’t have to fight your self and go through inner conflict everyday to achieve your goals.

A Dr Johannes Schulze in 1905 carried out some experiments that have since revolutionized theories of success and achievement, in life and sport. Before and after re-unification Athletes from East Germany used his techniques to totally dominate all major sports, athletes from the USSR achieved similar results. These methods are used today by athletes, executives and many other people, why because they bring real results.

The method advocated was Autogenic conditioning, once in the alpha state and when you are in alpha relaxation your mind is a lot more cooperative. This is when you are just about to fall asleep, when you feel a bit hazy this is a alpha relaxation state almost like in a deep trance or meditation.

I will cover history of the subject some other time but I want to put forward alpha relaxation and the alpha state, here is how to do it:

-Sit down in a private place, where you can not be disturbed, make sure the place is dark
-Begin by concentrating on your feet, deliberately make them relaxed, feel as they are floppy and light, go through all areas of the body, making them feel relaxed and limp
-This order might be helpful: Feet, calves, thighs, buttocks, stomach, lower back, shoulders, hands, elbows, upper arms neck and face.
-Now each area that you concentrate on make it release from all tension, you will improve with practice.
-After this the mind has to be relaxed, count slowly backwards from 20 to 1, count down with each breath slowly.
-The next bit is hard, as you count from 20 to 1 visualize the number as it is counted, no thought can enter the mind, or anything at all.
-If you are distracted by a thought start again from 20, you might not succeed the first time but give it a week, the results will come.
-When you reach number one, repeat it 10 times, so 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1. You will now have reached the alpha state or alpha relaxation state, you will feel as if it’s a different world, there is a window of opportunity now to set beliefs that can be fixed.
-Slowly repeat your desired goal or mental improvement, i.e. “I am more organized, each day I become more organized”
-Make your statement short, sharp and present tense, as if it has happened, your mind will receive the message much more clearly.
-To come back make a conscious decision to come out of alpha relaxation, now count from 20 to 1, and tell your self when you reach the number one you will be awake and ready.

With practice of about a week you will become familiar with it and a week later you will feel results, be persistent and alpha relaxation will become a normal state for you.
