Gamma waves are the fastest brainwave frequency with the smallest amplitude. Neuroscientist believe that gamma waves are able to link information from all parts of the brain, and the entire brain is influenced by the gamma waves. Originating in the thalamus this wave moves from the back of the brain to the front and back again 40 times per second. This “full sweep” action makes the gamma state one of peak mental and physical performance. Most of us experience this as being in the “flow”.
Beta waves are the waves of an engaged and focused mind. The person engaged in active conversation, teaching, writing essays, or debating. In modern waking life, these waves are experienced daily.
These are slower than beta waves and represent a less aroused state. When you take a break after working you've entered alpha waves. When we are engaged in creative tasks such as painting alpha waves are present. Alpha waves are the waves we're in during deep trance and meditation states.
Theta waves are present during deep dreaming and some meditative states; they are associated with serene calmness, medium to deep sleep, shamanic journeying, deep healing, hypnotic states, and medium to deep trance . These waves are associated with the subconscious mind where we hold all of our past experiences - thoughts, emotions, and behavior patterns. The subconscious mind is the place where we can change habits and let our body heal itself. The Theta state is one where great transformation and healing can occur.
These are produced in our subconscious when we are at the slowest and deepest state of sleep and rest, possibly representative of very deep trance.
It’s difficult to put my experience with the Pandora Star into words because, even though my eyes were closed for the entire 35-minute session, the experience was powerfully visual. What I saw behind my eyelids was like looking through several kaleidoscopes, every single one made up of different shapes and colors. Rather than feel overwhelmed by the imagery, I began to feel as though something inside of me were being gently shifted or aligned. I also felt a strong sense of moving through doors or passages in my mind that I had not been able to breach on my own.
After the light was done, I felt positively energized, well-rested, and clear-headed.
Even though the light had been going for 35-minutes, I felt as though only 5-minutes had passed.
Since using the Pandora Star, I have noticed that my dreams are more vibrant and I’ve been able to remember more of them upon waking up.
I am excited to use the Pandora Star in the future.
I’ve been lucky enough to try a few of the PandoraStar programs, and each experience has been distinctly different. While the patterns and colors vary, the sense of journey and exploration was the same.
Each time, I’ve remained fully aware of my presence on the bed or mat, while my mind travelled as if dreaming. I was able to consciously enjoy and observe the experience taking place behind my eyes. My favorite session so far has been Happy, with it’s vivid playful rainbows, I can’t wait to try it again!

Over the past 10+ years I’ve thrown myself into different areas of study, from quantum physics to sacred geometry, crystal healing to Reiki, eastern philosophy, and intention work. I’ve always been a curious person and I think a lot of people share my curiosity. I’m curious about the nature of this life, this reality, our bodies, and our minds.
I believe there will always be more mystery in life than there is knowledge. Wisdom is an evolutionary process that has no finish line and is continuously changing. There are many tools, like the PandoraStar, that can quicken our personal evolution in this life. Each one of us needs curiosity to help drive our quest for these tools, wisdom, and experiences that aid our growth.
I am a Reiki Practitioner, Artist, Actress, Philosopher, Card Reader, and Entrepreneur. I may have many hats but I think my main calling in life is tied to my name: April. The Latin meaning of April is “Open” relating to the opening of buds in Spring. My purpose is to help others and myself open up to new ways of being in this world and help heal my brothers and sisters. Take a deep breath of fresh air and realize how magnificent and powerful you are. Let me open your mind to a greater personal potential.
