Beta is fast and means we are focused and engaged – great for decision making. This section of the book gives an overview of brain states and explains how to use the best kind of brainwaves for whatever activity we are engaged with. 

States are affected by things such as mood, nutrition, meditation and daydreaming. There is a great exercise in here giving the best ways to get the most of daydreaming and how to use it to powerful creative effect.

In this chapter, there is a section on building powerful resource states. How to use emotions such as excitement, curiosity, passion and clarity to make you more creative and more imaginative. The chapter explains the neuroplasticity nature of the brain and how this relates to helping your creativity.

It’s easy and powerful and not many people know how to do this.
