During Meditation, Theta brain waves are said to open the “third eye”, allowing the practitioner to gain illumination and wisdom – great clarity. In more practical terms, they invoke a deep sense of relaxation, encourage creativity, and make problem solving and memorisation easier. Delta brain waves are the slowest of all. You experience Delta waves during deep sleep, but delta brain waves in meditation are said to help experienced practitioners access the unconscious mind. Their existence may also be part of the reason why newly learned skills may be best integrated if one “sleeps on them,” as they are associated with people’s ability to integrate newly learned tasks.
