The alpha level is a state on mind where the people are relaxed and attentive to the different objects. Mostly people gain this level while sleeping, dreaming, or during the meditation. There are very fewer people in the world that those who can get this level of mind during their normal practice of life. There is significant fact, however, the human can gain this state when he is fully functioning in life, and when it happens, the human thinks, learns, and interacts at his best as successful.

According to Silva Method, which is the best and widely accepted in the physiology of mental health, there are four stages of consciousness.

1. Beta: this is a state where most of the human spend their life, like while walking with the help of their five senses and perception of space and time. The frequency reader the brain wave is higher than 14-21 cycles per second.
2. Alpha: at this state of consciousness, the brain wave shows among 7-14 cycles per second on the frequency reader. It happens during light sleep, intuition, and meditation mostly. There is no time specification or space limit involves in this state.
3. Theta: this is a stage of high meditative trance. The brain wave shows among 4-7 cycles per second on the frequency reader. This stage is only achievable during deep sleep or at the time of lost in the meditation.
4. Delta: this is a stage of transcendental experience. The brain wave shows less than four cycles per second on the frequency reader.

The alpha level is the ideal state of consciousness where human brain is able to learn, observe, memorize, read and interact of his thoughts, or the emotions of surroundings. This level helps our brains, allow them to act more effectively and at extreme power. On the other hand the beta stage is normal level of human minds, where they are awake and stuck in many of thoughts at a time. The human brain is just like the electrical circuit, and these bundle of thoughts and acts try to clutter or obstruct the mind, so that the human is less able and perceptive to complete the task entirely.

While in alpha level , most of the clutter is eliminated from the mind, is calm and subdued. The brain is much stronger and perceptive in this level of consciousness. Brain not only completely understand it own thoughts, but the thoughts of other human as well.

Those, who gain this level, feel the improved ability of observing, remembering, and action at best. They use the most parts of brain for completing the task at same time, when the brain is empty of other objects. The powers of memorize, insight, concentration, and focus increased dramatically at the alpha state of brain.

You need special instructions and practice to become the controller of brain stated at your will, otherwise everybody gain this state during sleep. Many people gain this level with the help of meditation, but they lost it as they finish the meditation, so not able to act as proficiently in routine work as they can do in alpha level.
