On Saturday April 26, 2014 at 10am PST, Lynne McTaggart and her team of scientists will be testing, for the first time ever, the power of intention to heal an individual with a diagnosed illness under scientifically controlled laboratory conditions. If this experiment produces a positive outcome, it will have enormous implications about the role of thought in healing and the practices of our community of healers.
As we build a revolutionary consciousness, we must never place our faith in violence, even as we understand that violence, especially by vigilantes, criminals and militarized police forces, will be used against us. Our strength is our truth. And this truth terrifies our power elites. Truth, not force, is the real power of revolutionaries.
To truly walk the path means to be consciously engaged with what we’re feeling and experiencing in in every single moment. So when you get up in the morning and take a shower, are you already thinking about a busy day ahead, or instead feeling the fullness of the moment? Enjoying the water as it splashes down over your skin?
When we’re eating breakfast, do we just go with what we always tend to have? Or are we actually consciously asking our body what would best suit it? If we conduct action – any action – and we’re not fully, consciously engaged in what we’re doing and not aware of what’s going on around us, then we’re not present. We’re lost in a program and living in an illusion.
In our day-to-day lives, we interact with a wide variety of people. It’s easier (in theory) to understand the motivations and actions of close family and friends because we have interacted with them for a long time. Interactions with others – such as co-workers, acquaintances, and even strangers – aren’t nearly so clear cut. Unwittingly, we often overlay our own fears and emotions on their actions to bridge the communication gap.
The magnitude of current events is creating a widespread shift in conscious awareness from the inside out. There is nothing like direct experience to accelerate the learning and awakening curve.
If you’re like me, you enjoy residing in a vast realm and feeling like you’re part of the whole. Just gazing up at the twinkling stars at night or looking into the kaleidoscope-patterned wings of a butterfly, can send me into revery. I like that I’m part of all that is, but sometimes I can’t seem to get into that vibe. My mind knows it’s true, but I can’t feel it.
Humanity has been on a historically long journey to finally arrive at a world that is complex and interdependent. We are at a point in human history where we are leaving behind one age and entering the next. The epoch we are leaving behind is the modern age. The epoch we are about to shift into has been given many names – digital, post-modern, new age, etc – yet has so far suffered from lack of true and genuine foresight.
Feeling edgy and out of sorts, or simply sensing that you’re on the edge of your seat about to make your next move? For perspective, what you are feeling is both personal and your tapping into the collective dance of radical shifting involving how Earthly life is lived. It’s not just about one day, or one month, but certainly April is an intense time for most people to handle!
Mahatma Gandhi needs no long introduction. Everyone knows about the man who lead the Indian people to independence from British rule in 1947. So let’s just move on to some of my favourite tips from Mahatma Gandhi.
When the brain entrains to the heart, connectivity increases between brain and body. Conversely, the location of consciousness in the brain leads to an increased disconnection between brain and body. When one shifts into heart-oriented cognition, mental dialogue is reduced. Sympathetic and parasympathetic nerve pathways and the baroreceptor system directly link the heart and brain, allowing communications and information to flow freely. Messages flowing from the heart to the brain during this shift to coherence significantly alter the brain’s functioning, especially in the cortex, which profoundly affects perception and learning. A new mode of cognition is activated…the holistic/intuitive/depth mode
When you love yourself, you realize you are already whole. That’s right, feeling loved is not about what others can provide you but what you are able to realize about yourself.
We are many and varied but we are not so different. We all want love, support, connection, passion, freedom, creativity and a sense of meaning in our lives. How and where we find those things is unique to each of us and our destinies are not the same.
