What is it?
Alpha waves, or the Alpha state are a type of brainwave oscillation commonly associated with a relaxed state of mind. Robert Monroe mentions Alpha waves a lot in regards to a relaxed state, as well as when he touches on Hemi-Sync. The alpha state is important to astral projection; it is the first state your mind should be in before one is attempted.
