 - Researchers from Boston University have figured out two areas of the brain which must be activated to ‘turbo charge” cognitive functioning.

Two brain regions – the medial frontal and lateral prefrontal cortices – control most executive function. It was found that by synchronizing these areas of our grey matter, participants in a study experienced better, faster brain functioning. De-synchronizing these areas resulted in the opposite – a slower brain.  However, if there is more to the story of our brain’s left or right brain dominance?

Using high-definition transcranial alternating current stimulation (HD-tACS) to synchronize oscillations between the medial frontal and lateral prefrontal cortices, resulted in faster neurotransmitter firing.

The synchronization of these two areas of the brain also resulted in better communication abilities and more control over the participants’ emotional reactions.

 - We are accustomed to thinking of progress as a step forward. But taking a conscious step back can lead to an abiding sense of peace.

Imagine that you are standing under a waterfall. The water pounds down on your head and shoulders and pins your feet to the ground. The steady rush of water feels good. At times, it feels ecstatic.

But often the force of the water is too much. It hurts. You want it to stop. You tilt your body slightly, hoping to find a gap in the sheets of water cascading down on you. You do, and for a moment the pain lessens. But then the full force of the water finds you again. The pain is intense. You feel trapped.

Now imagine that one day, for no reason you can think of, you step back from the waterfall. You had no idea there was a space behind you the whole time, a cavern cut into the rock that easily accommodates your frame. The relief you feel is immense. Your body feels light. You witness the water pouring down inches from your nose. The inches seem like miles. Now the water begins to flow from you. Tears of joy are streaming down your cheeks. You have stepped away from the steady rush of water, from the endless cycle of pleasure and pain you’d been experiencing for as long as you can remember.

 - The human body is fascinating, and although we’ve come a long way with regard to understanding how our own biology works, there is still much to be discovered, and still much that has yet to be understood. Even with all of our advancements, and how far we’ve come, it’s but a minor peak in a long road of discovery.

How do we sense the world around us? Are there hidden factors which are UN-observable that remain hidden from the human eye? Sure there are. Why do we duck before coming to a low ceiling? Why do we dodge things that are thrown at us? Do we have more senses than we’ve been lead to believe, and do these senses play a role?

New research from scientists at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden have used a very well known experiment, called “the rubber hand illusion,” to demonstrate that humans can sense what feels like a “force field” between the brush and the rubber hand.

Eyes of Others Reincarnation -There is a lot of conversation in the New Age community about a particular concept, which can be summarized by the simple adage “we are all one”. Too often this deep and meaningful spiritual philosophy gets tossed aside as being overly incredible or outright unbelievable. So today we are going to explore this concept one more time, this time with the intention of putting a more scientific perspective on it, for those who may have previously disregarded this idea as fictional.

Let us begin by discussing the increasing number of cases which support the concept of reincarnation. We are often told that all we are is this body and once it is gone, so are you. Even in this here we must acknowledge that this idea is actually nothing but a theory, and from the evidence collected from people who have been medically pronounced dead, and then recover shortly thereafter we find staggering correlations in the experiences which transpire after our physical bodies have stopped living. The general consensus is that even after our bodies die there is still a part of us that goes into an astral form and will continue to exist long after our bodies have passed. The theory that there is nothing after we die came from the lack of evidence to support reincarnation, but as more and more of these first hand accounts explain the contrary, our theories on this topic must adapt to the new information and therefore our personal belief systems must grow and adapt as well.

Thus, it’s only logical that the first step in really understanding how deeply interconnected we all are is to realize that you are a being that is going to exist long after your body returns to dust. Millions, if not billions of people all around the world already believe this to be true, whether that comes in the form of a Christian believing in their soul living for eternity in heaven, or a Native American believing their soul will join with that of the great spirit and flow through the planet. Many faiths all support the idea of life after death and the evidence to support this claim is really mounting up.

Being a Guru - What we often fail to fully grasp is just how powerful thoughts truly are; it not only has the power to shape our own lives and the world around us, but the lives of others. It also has the power to influence others ways of thinking; for the better, or for the worse.

In a recent article we published we explored the psychology of raising children, which looked at the various stages in life and where we learn predominant human traits. You may have noticed that regardless of what stage in life you are at, there is always one predominant experience; this is that we are always in a constant state of learning. Even if we become ignorant and choose not to push ourselves forward and grow, there is still learning that comes from this.

With that being said, we have to be very full of care about how we choose to learn, making sure to think carefully about things, observe how we feel about them, check with our “guides”, “angels”, “higher selves”, or very simply, our own “critical mental analysis”. We need to make sure that we are taking steps in the direction that is best for ourselves and those around us. It is all too easy to give away our power to others, when we believe that they will be the answer to our problems, or guide us in our lives. This is the subject of today’s article, because the truth is – you have to be your own guru.

 - In this article, I'm once again exploring one of my favorite topics — manifestation.  It's a favorite of mine for two reasons;  (1) my personal experiences have convinced me that it is very real — the correlation between my thoughts and desires and what appears in my life has been undeniable,  (2) The topic is so empowering and important!  Realizing your creatorship can dramatically change your life and the world, what could be more important than that.

One of the most epic things about awakening to the wider reality and your wider/higher self is that you come to know that you are a creator and that you are creating every aspect of your personal reality.  By embracing your creatorship and understanding the laws of creation, you open the door to freedom and limitlessness, and by stepping through this door you step into your full power.

For those that have not yet discovered their creatorship, as amazing as it sounds, you are creating your reality with your thoughts and beliefs.  This is not the objective reality that, up until now, your senses have seemed to indicate and that you have assumed it was.  It's more like a virtual reality — one in which your thoughts control what appears in the game, but in a very fascinating way — what appears is the reflection of your most predominant thoughts and beliefs.

 - When was the last time you tasted the sublime?

When did you last feel wonder?

Can you remember feeling awed by something?

These are things we need, if we are to thrive. They are fuel for the higher human abilities. If we lack them, as is currently endemic throughout the West, our higher abilities will lag.

For lack of better terms we can call these feelings “upward movements of the heart,” and we are diminished when there is a lack of them. Without them we fail to develop our higher capacities and insights. We slide more and more toward becoming, in one critic’s words, “mere trousered apes.”

 - We chose the veil. We chose to forget.

But why would we do such a thing? The answer to that question is something that is now coming clearer and clearer in our dawning awareness.

What we are coming to realize now is not only the fact that we chose to forget, but even more importantly is that we knew that the process of re-MEMBERing would be something hugely MORE for us, something MORE for the universe, something MORE for the infinite love that we actually are. This ‘greater glory’ was so apparent for us, that even the giving up of our present glory and entering a path of suffering was something we were willing and ready to chose. Only a powerful being fully in charge of their will and sanity could and would make such a choice.

 - The hype about Ayahuasca caught on quick with many people from around the world flocking to the Amazon seeking the amazing benefits of an Ayahuasca ceremony.

Yes, the trip you have leads to very interesting experience but there is more to it than a high full of exciting visions. This substance takes you to a completely different dimension and changes you on an energetic and spiritual level. While it can create a life changing experience, you may want to understand exactly what you are getting yourself into.

This is a powerful plant that must be understood on an energetic, chemical and spiritual level. The same goes for other psychedelic drugs. Regardless of what drug you take, it shifts the strength of the body’s aura. The changes that occur result in doorways — energy portals to a person’s energy or aura. By opening these doorways, the person in some way relinquishes control or power over themselves making it easier for them to come in contact with lower vibrational energies.

- In the groundwork of understanding psychology and the understanding of others and ourselves, there is basic rule. That very basic rule is: What you see is always your own reflection in the mirror. So, if you experience something in this world that calls for the warrior in you – it is because you are that thing – and what you are opposing is your own reflection.

Quiet of a bit narcissistic argument – Everything is about you!

No, it is not, it is noise.

If we engage in a journey, which many of us obviously are, there comes a breaking point. That breaking point is when we stop identifying ourselves with this world and its manifestations. We go outside the world of programming, both psychologically and physically, and an entity steps in.

That entity has many names: The Observer, The Silent Witness and more.

 - It’s called magnetoreception, and it refers to the ability to perceive magnetic fields. Several animals use it to find their way over long distances by aligning themselves with the Earth’s magnetic field. Sea turtles. honeybees, spiny lobsters, dolphins, migratory birds, and more all have a magnetic compass which allows them to use the information that’s coded into magnetic fields. We know little beyond that, however. How they use them, how they sense them, and what information they are getting from them remains up for speculation. For all we know, these magnetic fields could be used for much more than navigation for certain species.

According to Joe Kirschvink, the geophysicist at the California Institute of Technology who is currently testing humans for a magnetic sense, “it’s part of our evolutionary history. Magnetoreception  may be the primal sense.”

A recent study published by Kirschvink in the journal Nature Communications suggests that a protein in the human retina, when placed into fruit flies, has the ability to detect magnetic fields. The research claims that it can serve as a magneto sensor, but whether or not humans actually use it in this way is unknown.
