Hypnosis And The Unconscious Vs. The Subconscious Debate

When we talk about hypnosis or hypnotherapy, we often hear the terms subconscious mind or unconscious mind. It’s become clear to me that there is some degree of confusion over the meaning of the terms, and the difference between the two.

It bears clarifying where the terms came from and how and why the terminology has evolved from the Freudian term subconscious mind which society naturally adopted, to the more indicative term unconscious mind.

In actual fact, in the context of hypnosis, the two terms refer to precisely the same thing, it’s just a matter of which term more appropriately describes the state of being. I am of the opinion that unconscious is the more appropriate choice of word.

Some feel more strongly about it than me. I remember a couple of years ago attending a seminar on hypnosis by my friend who is a very well known hypnotist. Not long after his introduction speech he told the audience of assembled hypnotherapists “If I hear anyone refer to the unconscious mind as the subconscious mind then I will throw them out of this room”. Of course it was said with a little humour, but his point was clearly made.

I can totally understand the public’s use of the word subconscious as the Freudian term was readily adopted by society when the concept of unacknowledged mental activity was discovered. Traditional therapists have historically used the word subconscious, which in my opinion, implies a place that is somehow lessened or belittled, and undermines the power of the unconscious mind. The prefix ‘sub” suggests something that is somehow beneath par. On the other hand, the term unconscious spells out clearly that it is in fact a part of the mind that is active without our being aware of it.

Outside of the context of hypnosis, people most commonly associate the word unconscious with the state of having completely lost consciousness, or being quite literally knocked out. This is in essence the state of being unaware. By this logic, making reference to the unconscious mind quite appropriately describes the portion of our mind of which we are unaware.

The theory that we only utilize a small part of our brain is misleading in that, we are certainly only consciously aware of what 10% of our brain is doing at any given moment, but the other 90% is certainly active, we are simply not conscious of it. So when you next hear someone say “we only use 10% of our brains”, challenge them. It’s simply not true!

Anyway, back to the point. To me, the term unconscious is more complimentary, and more effectively defines the power of this part of our mind that we aren’t consciously attentive to. To call it subconscious is to suggest that it has less significance or that it doesn’t serve us to an equivalent degree as does our conscious mind. In reality, there is cause to speculate that out unconscious mind may in fact hold greater power than that which we are aware of in our conscious state.

Coping With Depression After A Parkinson’s Diagnosis

Parkinson’s disease is often thought of as a physical disease. In advanced cases it is not difficult to observe the tremors, tics, stiffness and mobility problems that are characteristic of the disease. Yet there is also a strong link between mental health and Parkinson’s disease, with dementia often taking hold during the disease’s later stages. A more prominent Parkinson’s related mental health issue is depression. Parkinson’s literature suggests that as many as half of people with Parkinson’s disease also suffer from depression.

Depression is a serious condition that has the potential to interfere with daily functioning, and in severe cases, can even lead to isolation, self-mutilation or even suicide. While it can be triggered by stressful events, prolonged environmental or social circumstances, or even from medication, depression is caused by abnormal brain function of which the cause is unknown.
In addition to the classic signs of depression that include unsociability, isolation, moodiness, decreased hygiene or care for personal appearance, or low self-esteem, Parkinson’s patients may exhibit different signs of depression than non-Parkinson’s sufferers. Differences in the symptom profile for people who have Parkinson’s as opposed to those who do not may include:

* Frequent occurrences of suicidal thoughts but with fewer actual suicides
* Sadness without guilt or self-blame
* Higher rates of anxiety

The good news is that depression, for healthy individuals as well as those with Parkinson’s, is treatable. Seeking and undergoing treatment for depression will makes people feel better about themselves and their circumstances, and, in the case of Parkinson’s sufferers, will allow them to increase their focus on overcoming the symptoms of their disease and living a more normal life. Treatment should be a collaborative effort between the Parkinson’s patient’s physician and a qualified mental health professional, preferably a psychiatrist, who is authorized to prescribe appropriate medication. By encouraging communication between neurologist and psychiatrist, potential medication interaction can be avoided and optimal mental and physical health achieved more quickly.

Even when treated, depression does not instantaneously disappear. It may take time to discover the right balance between medication and emotional therapy to assist a patient’s recovery from depression, even when they are very ill. No matter what stage of Parkinson’s a person might be experiencing, treatment for depression can be incorporated into his or her overall health treatment plan without compromising the efficacy of either program.

People diagnosed with Parkinson’s, especially if they suffer from depression, may feel overwhelmed by the enormity of their health concerns. It may be helpful to learn more about the disease and recent advances that enable most people with Parkinson’s to live long and productive lives. It may also be comforting to make contact with other people who have the disease and who have learned to live with it. Worldwide, there are national, regional and local associations whose mission is Parkinson’s disease research, education and support of Parkinson’s sufferers. This kind of real-life assistance from people who are familiar with what it is like to live with Parkinson’s can be an invaluable addition to the support network made up of family and friends.

Coping With Depression After A Parkinson’s Diagnosis

The Drugs Don’t Work!

Can Hypnotherapy heal the problems that traditional treatments cannot resolve? Is it our attitudes towards bad habits and illness, that encourages us treat the symptoms and not the causes?

“Hypnosis” may conjure up images of swinging pendulums and stage trickery, but it’s a technique that’s recently undergone something of a change in attitudes towards its use as a healing tool. It is also enjoying a renewed interest from the scientific and medical community as more and more academic studies show significant positive results. It’s also apparent that some people are more able to progress into a hypnotic state than others, some people respond and some don’t.

There’s now some pretty conclusive evidence that Hypnosis is effective in pain management and very successful in the treatment of stress, anxiety, fears and phobias. It’s widely used in dealing with habitual problems, especially smoking and other forms of addiction. It’s also used to control certain psychosomatic problems like seizures and irritable bowel syndrome.

So, what’s hypnotherapy all about? Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness, which is a little bit like day-dreaming. Have you ever driven somewhere and during the journey your mind has been focused on something completely different to the job of driving, and when you have arrived at your destination, you realise that you remember no details of the drive? You were in a hypnotic trance! You were miles away consciously, but your sub-conscious mind was driving the car and doing it quite adequately without the conscious mind interfering, then suddenly you’re back to reality.

Full Conscious Awareness is the state in which we spend most of our waking hours. In this state, our mind is attentive and uses logic to reason, evaluate, judge, and make decisions. Unfortunately, when attempting to make life changes, the conscious mind often gets in the way of our desires, by creating doubts and conflict in our thinking.

Hypnosis is special because it opens up a channel of communication between the conscious and the sub-conscious mind. It is not sleep, but a relaxed state, where the critical faculty is bypassed, where we focus and close down the conscious mind, where we store all of our beliefs and values. We can then allow ourselves to absorb new values, beliefs and desires, thus enabling changes that we want to happen, to occur.

At a subconscious level we don’t think in the usual way. Our minds react and we can’t distinguish between reality and unreality, we absorb all the information received through the senses as true, as real.

In the Hypnotic State, you are “experiencing” without questioning, without critical judgment or analysis, you are able to suspend your dis-belief, a little like when you are watching a movie, and the hypnotherapist can make suggestions that are very likely to feel real and to permanently alter your values and beliefs – precisely because your conscious mind is not getting in the way. You are not “judging” or being “critical” of the suggestions.

So why is it that some people respond and some don’t? Generally, if two or more emotions are in conflict, the dominant one wins out over the weaker. Imagination wins out over will power, emotions win out over logic, the subconscious mind wins out over the conscious, every time, Our emotions rule. If for some reason, you will yourself not to allow suggestions to be accepted, they won’t be. The habitual smoker who asks for help to quit smoking but is not really committed to that goal, cannot be forced to do so against their will.

By definition, Habits, are those repetitive behaviors that you do “without thinking.” With the critical faculty bypassed and by using the power of imagination, specific thoughts and suggestions can be placed in the subconscious where they can propel someone toward a desired goal or change behavior in a positive, permanent way.

I am not for a moment suggesting that drug treatments should be abandoned in every case. There is clearly a time and a place for drug-based therapies, but all too often people assume that there is a pill for everything that is wrong and that simply is not the case.

In many cases drugs are not a cure, we rely too much on the treatment of symptoms and not enough on the causes of our problems. A change in attitude towards the way we think about illness and well-being, may enable us to treat the causes and eliminate the problems permanently.

The Drugs Don’t Work!

Personal Goal Setting and Running Marathons

Personal goal setting is a powerful tool you can use to bring yourself success, increasing both your confidence in yourself as well as increased respect from colleagues and family members. Unfortunately, personal goal setting can be tricky and is often challenging for people who are not used to organized their goals and tracking their achievements. For this reason, I wanted to write a few words on how to successfully set your goals and improve your lives.

Everyone who is serious about personal goal setting should think of life as a marathon: if you never have been in a marathon before, running to win is not only unrealistic, but also very frustrating and disappointing. But if the first time you race you run just to finish the course, then the next time you will be more prepared and will be able to finish in a better position than your initial marathon. Eventually, if you train and race enough, you will achieve a top ten position in the marathon. This principle applies on personal goal setting too: your first goals should be easy to achieve; the next goals should be a bit harder, and so on. Eventually, when you have “raced” enough, you will be able to easily achieve your more difficult goals, and of course the rewards will be all that more satisfying.

There is no point in setting goals that are too difficult to achieve! If you are not well prepared, then you will very likely fail, and that will be an ugly low blow to your self-confidence. After all, you can’t ask a man to build a house if you don’t teach him how to lay down a brick first. Like at school, successful personal goal setting is a step-by-step learning process where you think about what you did right and about what you did wrong, and thus you get better at doing it day by day.

If you have a big, lifetime personal goal, you should “chop it” into smaller goals, easier to achieve, and set a reasonable “deadline” to achieve it. That way, you will get rewards sooner, and your self-esteem and confidence in yourself will grow little by little. Besides, if you complete small daily goals you will complete larger goals without even noticing it!

Personal goal setting is all about patience and proactiveness. Patience will be useful when walking towards your long term goals one step at a time and proactiveness will help you to take real action for completing your every day goals. Success doesn’t happen all of a sudden: it takes planning and, most of all, action and decision. If you really want to success artistically, improve your career or enhance your lifestyle, then you should start getting serious about your personal goal setting.

Three Ways To Boost Your Self Esteem

Feeling good about yourself is one of the key ways to be successful at what you do. Remember that only you are in charge of your emotions and empowering yourself is a great way to get ahead in life.

This article lists three ways to boost your self esteem which can help you feel better about yourself and become a more confident person.

Get your mind relaxed

A relaxed mind is the source of great power. Like the tai-chi masters of old, a calm mind can bring about great mental strength that can allow you to become more confident in what you do on a daily basis. Things like hypnosis, tai-chi or meditation can help you develop this inner calm that will allow you to be composed in the most volatile situations. A calm mind in the face of adversity, is a source of strength.

John for example is a busy executive who was really stressed out at work so in the weekends he decided to take up Tai-Chi and after that was able to maintain his calm during the week. As a result of that, his colleagues started consulting him when they had crisis and his self confidence went up.

Do something that you are strong at

Do something that you are good at and that reinforces in your mind that you are a person that is of value. Spend some time doing something that allows you to experience the feeling of winning. Chalking up the wins is something that will help boost your self confidence.

There is much to illustrate in the area of the psychology of winning. There was an story of a father who let us son beat him at wrestling and after a while, this son started to consistently beat his other brother whom for the longest time had prevailed over him. Such is the power of the mindset of a winner.

Do something for others

Spend some time doing something for others and doing it well. The joy of achievement no matter how small will empower and light up your life. Remind yourself that in small things you are faithful, you will be able to handle larger and more complex things. Thereafter you will be able to be confident in your own abilities to handle more tasks.

Self confidence is relative as well. Some people think that they have the worst life in the world, helping out the less fortune reminds us that we should be thankful and thereafter make the best of our own existence on earth as mundane as it may be. Thankfulness and self esteem have an impact on each other and a thankful mindset is the basis to attract more self confidence.

In conclusion, are you feeling down and insecure? Try taking these three simple steps today and thereafter spend time at night reflecting on your own thoughts. Discard thoughts that drag your self-worth down and take active steps to nurture positive thoughts. There is wisdom in living a more confident life and it is one that you ought to live.

Three Ways To Boost Your Self Esteem

Do You Have The Right Mindset To Survive In Network Marketing?

Many people want to experience the thrill of running their own online network marketing business but give up when they meet the first hurdle. In order to survive in any business your mindset is just as important as whether you have the best looking graphics on your website!

If you are easily disappointed, if you know that you give up easily, then you really will want to learn how to strengthen your attitude because you are going to need broad shoulders and a “stuff upper lip!” to survive in the world of network marketing.

So here are 6 tips to developing a positive mental attitude that will help you to build your online network marketing business.

1. Be Committed

Once you have your desire to achieve commitment to achieve your goals is essential. When something is new and exciting it is easy to do, but within a few short months (or even weeks) of starting it is easy to abandon what you have started, especially when you are constantly met with people saying “no”.

Affirm your commitment to achieving whatever target you have set yourself, and remember to reward yourself every step of the way. Baby steps, one achievement at a time, build up to become one large achievement and that is the best way to achieve any goal.

Setting yourself a goal to make $300 in your first 3 months and then not acknowledging yourself for making $20 for a sale can cause frustration. Remember it is the small parts that come together to make the whole! 15 sales at $20 means you hit your $300 target.

2. Accept Challenges

Being your own boss and owner of your online network marketing business can be scary and a bit intimidating. You may decide to start building your business while still in full time employment and that in itself will cause challenges.

Or you may just leave your job to focus on your business (never a good idea!) It takes guts to have a dream and to go for it. You ultimately determine whether your business succeeds or fail, and learning to accept challenges is an important part of that.

Not managing your time properly can easily become one of the biggest challenges you will have to deal with. It will be very easy to sit at your computer and feel as if you have done very little 8 hours later if you are not managing your time and the appropriate tasks.

3. Be In Control.

Keep your mind focused on important things. Set goals and priorities for what you want to do and accomplish. Develop a strategy for dealing with potential problems and when those problems surface, feel confident in your ability to handle them.

The worst you can do in your online network marketing business is fail, and failure is not even that bad if you can learn from it and move on. Focus on failure not being an option and focus on what you will achieve when you succeed. A positive mental attitude is essential to survive online!

“I can do it” are probably the four most important words you can continually say to yourself every day.

4. Don’t be too Critical

There is no use criticizing yourself once you’ve made a mistake. Saying “I should have landed that account or handled that situation differently” is not going to make any difference at all. It’s just going to drain you of your energy and discourage you. Simply learn from your mistakes and move on. Let me repeat that – Simply learn from your mistakes AND MOVE ON!

5. Practice Makes Perfect

And stop worrying about getting everything right. It’s not going to happen. The only thing that separates you from a millionaire is mindset (assuming you are not a millionaire already of course!).
Learn, learn and learn some more. Paying for courses and seminars is an investment in yourself and in your business. If you value yourself then you must have this attitude towards it. You can learn the hard way by doing things and seeing what works or what doesn’t. Or you can go to a seminar, listen to what works, adapt it to add your own flair to it, and make it work even better!

6. Ask for Help

When you run an online network marketing business you want to work for yourself not by yourself. There is nothing wrong with asking for help. Don’t think you’re incompetent simply because you can’t do it all.

Get to know your Sponsor, their input and experience in the business is essential in your early weeks and months. Send them an email, introduce yourself, let them know what support you need and what you are hoping to achieve. Don’t just sit back and wait for them to get in touch with you.

A positive mental attitude in life is essential and in business even more so. When you spend months on a project that makes you no money wanting to continue may seem tough, but as long as you are willing to look at what didn’t work or what you may need to do to bring in a profit then you are a survivor!

I encourage you to read books about people who are successful in the netowkr marketing industry, they are a constant source of inspiration because you will realize that they were once were you are, just starting out.

Why Don’t You Try The Journey System?

The journey system is one of many memorization techniques recommended for long list of items, a word or phrase and even lines and speeches. There can be a lot of distractions just by recalling a set of information out of the top of your head which can cause a person to pause for a while and force all possible information the mind can retrieve at a given moment.

Problems such as this one can still be overcome. And if you’re the person who wants to keep your memorization and mental ability in top shape; allow the creative side of your brain to work with you. This just simply means that you’re allowing your creativity to work together with your memorization skills.

Creativity and visual senses are both effective and proven medium for memorization enhancement. When the brain starts to imagine, it sees visual forms and illusion; it then sees colors, forms and images. Connecting all these elements together means that you’re using your brain’s potential in all three aspects, and in turn, the observation it gets out of each vision is stored distinctively in the brain. This is how one can easily remember which word goes next on the next line.

This is also the same basis for the memory enhancement, journey system technique. The person imagines what he reads from a piece of paper. In using the journey system for memorizing lines or phrases or even just words; associate one keyword to the entire line. Stop and dwell on each line, no need to hurry. Try to imagine the words from the line as you would when you walk to your office or friend’s house. It’s easy this way because you can associate each keyword to something you’re already familiar with such as the big oak tree at the end of the street.

When you have it all arranged in place, you can wind it back in your head and start recalling each key points you used in association to something you already know. This way, you don’t need to force anything into your head when you want to remember a word or a line. You’ll just have to allow your mind to drift back to the mental journey you made and let the words come out of your lips.

Why Don’t You Try The Journey System?

New Age Spirituality – Inspirational Stories ( Part 21 )

Now the princess had fallen so much in love with this young man that she said, “I must marry this man or I shall die”; and she went after him to bring him back. Then our other Sannyasin, who had brought the king there, said to him, “King, let us follow this pair”; so they walked after them, but at a good distance behind. The young Sannyasin who had refused to marry the princess walked out into the country for several miles. When he came to a forest and entered into it, the princess followed him, and the other two followed them.

Now this young Sannyasin was well acquainted with that forest and knew all the intricate paths in it. He suddenly passed into one of these and disappeared, and the princess could not discover him. After trying for a long time to find him she sat down under a tree and began to weep, for she did not know the way out. Then our king and the other Sannyasin came up to her and said, “Do not weep; we will show you the way out of this forest, but it is too dark for us to find it now. Here is a big tree; let us rest under it, and in the morning we will go early and show you the road.”

Now a little bird and his wife and their three little ones lived on that tree, in a nest. This little bird looked down and saw the three people under the tree and said to his wife, “My dear, what shall we do? Here are some guests in the house, and it is winter, and we have no fire.” So he flew away and got a bit of burning firewood in his beak and dropped it before the guests, to which they added fuel and made a blazing fire. But the little bird was not satisfied. He said again to his wife, “My dear, what shall we do? There is nothing to give these people to eat, and they are hungry. We are householders; it is our duty to feed any one who comes to the house. I must do what I can, I will give them my body.”

Scientific Explanations For Remote Viewing

Eighteenth and nineteenth century physical science had completed and embellished the “golden age of a mechanistic and deterministic models of the universe” where the universe and its constituents are ruled by rigid interactive forces that can be measured, phenomena that can be predicted using mathematical tools, and where the universe or any system operating within it is made of the sum of its parts.

Light was thought to be an electromagnetic wave vibrating in an undetected, and later experimentally disproved media: “the ether”, at certain rates of vibration that would define its color. It was part of the electromagnetic wave spectrum that allowed one to perceive an electromagnetic wave as heat, light , radio waves, or other electromagnetic radiations depending on the frequency of its vibrations. This spectrum had been well-defined by the equations of the English physicist James Clerk Maxwell in 1864.

Man’s biology was reduced to a mechanical system albeit of extreme complexity, and thought was perceived to be but an epiphenomenon of the mechanical brain.

All this was very hygienic, logical, and comforting. It allowed to view the so-called invisible world of spiritual forces or entities as a personal unproven hypothesis, and permitted the justification of atheistic concept to be scientifically sound. Basically it allowed for purely atheistic politico-philosophies alike communism to find a sympathetic resonance within the “intelligentsia” and the masses.

It also gave a great mechanistic impetus and approach to the fields of biology, microbiology, psychology, neurobiology, and the allopathic technical mechanistic approach to the health sciences. Technology was “king” and the understanding of interactions between well-defined separated systems would bring the possible conquest of disturbances and imperfections in the “machinery” of biological entities.

Man having created a new religion called “science”, which revered himself and his intellect, had the perception of having attained a Godlike control over nature.

By the end of 19th century the ultraviolet catastrophe – as it came to be known – put this whole hygienic view of the world in question, and the theory of “quanta” of Max Planck was introduced in 1900. The German physicist Max Planck introduced the notion of packets of energy that he called “quanta” in order to explain why the wavelength (color) of the radiation given off by heated objects did not rise in a continuous manner but in discontinuous spurts from value to value as they grew hotter. Danish physicist Niels Bohr, who was to become later one of the fathers of the “Manhattan Project” that developed the first US A-bomb during WWII, used in 1913 the theory of “quanta” of energy in order to prove that the whole world of atoms was full of “quantum” jumps. An electron could jump from one level of energy (so-called orbit) to another without appearing in-between these states. Discontinuity had been introduced in our equation of the universe!

In 1905 Albert Einstein defined light as made of quanta of energy or particles that he coined “photons” in his famous paper explaining the photoelectric effect for which he received a Nobel prize in 1923. He nevertheless acknowledged that light could also be defined as a wave, depending on the mode of observation used in a chosen experiment, and the particle/wave duality was introduced in our attempts to grasp the mysteries of nature.

The new physics of the beginnings of the twentieth century gave a mortal blow to the deterministic principles of the old school of thought. Time and space became relative notions according to the theory of relativity of Albert Einstein. Quantum physics stated that all particles of matter could be viewed either as material bodies or as waves. It allowed for one electron (or any other particle) to be in two locations at once (double slit experiment), and proved that one could not predict the next location of a particle by knowing its present one.

In the strange world of quantum physics, particles dematerialized themselves into waves (such as in transistors) and rematerialized themselves later into particles. This depended on the type of experiment they were subjected to, and most importantly: the choice made by a conscious observer as to how he or she would view these particles.

To most theorists, the phenomena of nature existed only as determined states as a conscious observer witnessed them, either directly, or through the artifacts of a measuring device. Quantum mechanics was born, and with it our view of reality would be forever changed.

In order to comprehend events in the phenomenal world, one needed to introduce a major variable that had until then been ignored: The consciousness (self reflective thought) of the observer. Without the perception of a material world by a conscious entity, there were great doubts as to the existence of that material reality independently of its observation.

In other words we make a potential reality manifest itself by our choices, even retroactively through time and immediately across the perceived infinite space, as the two experiments mentioned hereafter have proven, to the surprise of most physicists. Or, in other words, volition and free will operate outside the confines of time/space, and our impression of making choices is but a delayed awareness of events that higher levels of our minds have already made for us and therefore project to our awareness (ego) as a holographic packet of sensory information, post facto. We are therefore, at a higher level, the maker (subject) of our reality projected to one’s self (object) within the web of probabilities of the quantum world that we “materialize” for both the subject and the object that are but two mirrors of one same reality: Consciousness, defined as self -reflective awareness.

Very advanced “remote viewers” know at which points volition is part of the higher levels of one’s self and at which points it is made available to the lower (conscious level), as the quantum self or higher self merges with the lower self (ego).

Our courses attempts to allow the conscious part (reactive sensory apparatus operating as intellect) and the much higher vibratory mind (deep subconscious level) to merge with each other in awareness in order to allow a human individual to be more in control of one’s reality and probable future. At the level of the higher mind time/space is instantly bridged. “Remote Viewing” and especially “Remote Influencing” allows one to connect to that level.

Mr. O’Donnell only mentions quantum physics in order to allow for the comforting view of reality of most individuals to be shattered and at the very least questioned. Each one is to find his or her own truth, using eventually his or her own path. The course is only meant as a guide to a new world, an opening to a new way of viewing and experiencing reality.

In 1982 at the Institute of Applied Physics and Theoretical Optics at the University of Paris, France, the team of physicists composed of Alain Aspect, Jean Dalibard and Gerard Roger made what may prove to be the greatest scientific discovery of this century. They proved experimentally that the world is non-local or non-separable. This is equivalent to saying that space, as we perceive it to be, does not exist, but is an illusion of our senses. Projected by whom? This is the big question that science tries to answer.

In the same field of quantum theory, time is not only relative but one can experimentally change the past, as the delayed choice experiment, carried out by scientists in the 80’s at the University of Maryland and the University of Munich has proven.

Although this all seems to belong to the realm of science-fiction, it is a reality, albeit hard to accept, for all the minds that dwell in the world of the quanta: a world full of seemingly contradictions, surprises, and a certain sense of humor.

All modern disciplines are nowadays affected by it, short maybe of modern biology, neurobiology and surprisingly psychology that are still embracing a mechanistic view of thought and have not, as yet, been able to define it.

Quantum physics gave us the invention of the atomic bomb, the transistor, the computer chip, laser and devices using laser light as a conduct for information, Josephson junctions in supercomputers, superconductors etc.

You should never doubt your natural-born ability to operate at such a high vibratory level of thought. This ability has been proven since antiquity, and is still utilized successfully by highly secretive intelligence units belonging to the major world powers.

This is one case where a dose of skepticism in the field of thought orientation and exploration is unhealthy, and the fear of ridicule even more so. You have to become open-minded, as a child is. All major shifts in scientific thought have incurred the ire of the static-minded old Praetorian Guard of proven inadequate sclerotic systems that are beginning to hit too many walls loaded with points of singularity.

The methods taught in our courses are probably part of the dawn of a new paradigm shift in scientific thinking that will revolutionize and change the “old classical scientific concepts” of the late 19th century that still rule for most of us our interpretation of our perceived material reality. This will have major implications in the natural and health sciences, the biological perceptions and their assumed correlations, all other phenomenal science, and the understanding of what the mind is.

If we are in the process of constantly creating our reality by thinking about it in an individualized and global manner, and that science reflects but a snapshot of our attempt at understanding our Creation, a major shift in our thought- perception will induce totally different ways at experiencing the phenomenal world and controlling it to our desires.

All aspects of our lives in this new Millennium will, most likely, be profoundly transformed by it.

The introduction of consciousness as a major factor in the equation of reality by modern quantum physics is at the core of one of the major paradox of so-called psychic research. According to quantum physics, the thought of the observer has an influence upon the result of an experiment. Therefore, if we are co-creator of our reality by mere thought, the natural imbued skepticism of many scientists and their methodologies introduce a negative bias in the results that they would obtain in thought experiment such as “remote viewing” etc.

In other words, in order to achieve 100% success at proving the efficacy of “remote viewing or influencing ” one would need to deal with scientists and tests subjects that are of the firm belief of the easy achievement of such mental feats, which would automatically be called a bias experimental protocol by the skeptical scientific community. That is why the best results at remote viewing were always achieved within intelligence and military secret units that pragmatically only cared about bridging time and space effectively using mental technologies, and were not the least concerned about peer recognition and the fear of being ridiculed.

Scientific Explanations For Remote Viewing

Avoiding Awkward Situations

Uncomfortable social situations are the worst-minor blunders can leave you embarrassed and feeling socially inadequate. A few simple tricks can help you avoid the most common mistakes and boost your self-esteem and social prowess at the same time.

The Name Game

You walk into a meeting and say, “Hey, Larry, how are you?” to which he replies, “Good, and actually, it’s Harry.” We’ve all had moments where we’ve experienced this sort of interaction and it’s never pleasant. To help prevent this, be sure to pay close attention when someone new is being introduced. If you happen to miss the name in the introduction, seize that moment to ask again. Don’t guess; you may not get it right and this will just lead to confusion later on. To help reinforce your memory, say the name in your head a few times. In addition, make an association with the person’s name and a relevant connection-something they are wearing, their occupation or the surroundings you’re in. If the person is wearing a purple dress and you’ve named them “Purple Patty,” don’t worry, you don’t need to share that with anyone else.
