…That brief moment when

you’re still dreaming but feel the morning hovering above you. Opening of doors, water splashing, the squeaks from a drawer until the warm breath of a child is so close to your face.

You breathe her in. And with it another chance.

Time to walk out

into it.

Those brief moments in bed are the Alpha state, 7-12Hz, a space where creativity is heightened. Research shows emotions associated with Alpha encompass love, awe, gratitude, hope, inspiration, pride, serenity.

Reach out if you’d like to learn how to increase the Alpha state throughout the day. I’ll be teaching a series of meditation classes to new parents in March.
