Amazing Brains –

008 – Dr. Tiffany Thompson

In this episode, Micah sits down with Dr. Tiffany Thompson, a Therapist blending neuroscience technology with the art of psychotherapy. In the show they cover the brain wave frequencies and what they represent.

Show Notes

Self-Actualization

  • Dr. Thompson says she expects to foresee the issue, but sometimes people’s issues are emotional in nature
  • Psychodynamic EEG says that there is more than what meets the eye
  • We are all familiar with the ego, the ‘me’
  • There is the personal consciousness, and then there is a collective unconscious

Brain Waves

Delta

  • When you see delta in the EEG, it’s commonly in individuals who deal with grief
  • It’s also found in individuals who are clairvoyant, a signature of the ‘wounded healer’
  • Delta is the slowest frequency
  • As a baby, we are constantly producing delta
  • As adults, we produce it in deep sleep
  • Flow is also called ‘waking delta’ or ‘waking theta’

Theta

  • We produce theta when the brain is in a state of magic or fantasy
  • Theta fuels neuro-genesis, new synaptic connections, etc
  • It’s a frequency that dominates our childhood

Alpha

  • Alpha is the first frequency of consciousness, being present, being in the flow
  • “Alpha is the lining of the realms of un-consciousness and realms of egoic, conscious state.” – Tiffany
  • With enough of alpha, we are able to pull layers from our consciousness and put meaning to it

Beta

  • Beta is the ego, in terms of identity
  • In our lives in general, things are okay
    • “The what if’s’ are what drive a lot of psychological issues, and that’s an ego problem. It’s a glitch in the system, nature doesn’t throw away what works” – Tiffany
  • Moving into gamma is a way of going beyond the ‘what if’ that plagues us

Gamma

  • When the brain creates gamma, its production is the expression of an individuated experience
  • The individuation process is one where your brain comes to realization
  • It may look like a moment of processing and integrating trauma to where it doesn’t traumatize you anymore

Final Thoughts

  • The wisdom lives within our DNA
  • “The god that you seek is your own heart” – Tiffany
