7 Keys for Manifesting Your Deepest Desires

By Matt Clarkson
Creator of Spiritual Growth Monthly

Would you be interested in a simple formula you can use to attract what you want faster than you ever thought you could?

That’s exactly what we’re going to cover here.

You see, I’ve noticed that people make several big mistakes when goal-setting and manifesting. Let’s talk now about how you can avoid these mistakes and create the life you want.

It’s very important that you frame your intentions correctly as I’m about to explain. Do the following whenever you set intentions and goals and you’ll find yourself attracting good things at a speed that will amaze you.

By the way, if you prefer the word “goals” or “outcomes” instead of the word “intention” - that’s fine. I’m going to use the word “intention” to mean all of these things.

So let’s discuss The 7 Keys For Manifesting Your Deepest Desires…

"The God Theory" Video on YouTube

Here is a very interesting 4-minute film based on the ideas proposed in Bernard Haisch's book The God Theory

Is it possible for there to be a purpose in a Universe born in a Big Bang and filled with evolving life? Can the multiverse and superstring theories of cosmology be rendered consistent with an infinite intelligence? Might our human consciousness transcend physical matter? Is our existence and the life we live the means whereby God experiences God's own potential?

Up to 96% Claim Paranormal Experience

Source: ABC Science Online

An international online survey of paranormal experiences has met with an overwhelming response, say Australian researchers.

The survey, on phenomena that cannot be explained using the current laws of science, is by researchers at Monash University in Melbourne.

"The paranormal is covered by the media everyday. It is also in the public domain via chatrooms and websites and email lists," says Rosemary Breen, who will use the survey results as part of a Masters degree.

"I wanted to tap into this and give a scholarly voice to these experiences."

A recent Gallup poll revealed that 75% of Americans hold at least one paranormal belief, and a UK newspaper poll showed that 60% of Britons accept the existence of the paranormal, say the researchers.

But little is known about contemporary spontaneous experiences, and official surveys are rare, they say.

Breen says the survey is not about beliefs or whether parapsychological phenomena exist, rather it is about what people have experienced and the impact it has had on their lives.

And she says she is not aware of any equivalent study in the world.

If you have trouble sleeping or wish you could wake up with more energy in the morning I have a very special announcement for you.

You may recognize the name Kacper Postawski as a regular contributor to Mind Power News. Kacper is the author of an excellent ebook called "Powerful Sleep: How to Sleep Less and Have an Abundance of Energy."

I've been a great fan of this book since 2004 when I studied the concepts and learned how to sleep up to 3 hours less without any decrease in my energy level!

Of course, some days I like to sleep much longer, but usually I sleep an average of 2 hours less than I did before I read this book. It's truly amazing to have enough time every day to do the things that I want.

If you're even remotely interested in sleeping less *and* having more energy during the day, this is a must to add to your collection.

And if there ever was a time to get it , it's today, because after Friday, Nov. 24, Kacper will no longer be offering these four bonuses.

1. The hit short eBook: Vivid Dreams - How to Harness Your Shadow Memory and Remember HOURS Of Your Dreams In Vivid Technicolor...

2. The Acidity And Alkalinity Report... - How the Acidity of Your Blood Affects Your Sleep and What To Do About It

3. The Jet Lag and Night Shift Report - Quick and Effective Strategies for Maximizing Your Sleep When You Work Night Shifts or Travel Often Across Multiple Time-Zones

Subliminal Erotic Images Affect the Brain

By Ker Than
Source: Fox News

The use of scantily clad models in ads for everything from underwear to ice cream attests to the persuasive power of sex, but a surprising new study finds that our actions can be swayed by erotic images even when they don't consciously register in our awareness.

In an experiment, 40 men and women were shown erotic images that had been manipulated to bypass conscious detection. The participants consisted of both heterosexual and homosexual individuals.

Subjects were then shown a small "probe" pattern and asked to determine its orientation—clockwise or counterclockwise.

The researchers found that subjects identified the probe pattern more accurately when it appeared where the erotic images had been, suggesting that the invisible images exerted an effect on their spatial attentions.

In general, the erotic images attracted or repelled attention depending on the gender of the nude model and also the sexual orientation of the subject.

Does the Brain Tap Into the Future?

By George Dvorsky
Source: Sentient Developments

While researching my protopanpsychism article, I came across the work of Dean Radin and Dick Bierman whose research has yielded some very eerie results.

Before I get to this, however, I’d like you to conduct a short experiment. While looking at your feet, stomp on the ground. You will notice that your visual perception of your foot hitting the floor matches your sensation of touching it. This would be fine except for one thing: the speed of light is vastly faster than the conduction times and synaptic delays through the long nerves and spinal cord from your feet. As a result, you should be seeing the event before you feel it – and the delay should be noticeable.

But it’s not.

Benjamin Libet and his associates first documented this phenomenon in 1979, which is now referred to as the ‘delay-and-antedating hypothesis/paradox.’ A number of explanations have been posited to reconcile this strange observation.

Perhaps there is a lag in the visual information. If this is the case, then the visual cortex is set for a time delay such that it can keep up with the slow pulses from the extremities. This would be a rather bizarre revelation if true, meaning that we are constantly viewing the world with a small degree of latency. This is almost certainly not the case, as Darwinian selection would favour those animals that do not experience any kind of visual delay. Living in the past would be grossly disadvantageous out in the wild.

Another possible solution is that sight and feel are experienced at separate times, but are remembered as happening simultaneously. Problems with this hypothesis are similar to the previous one – a suggestion that we are not meaningfully rooted in the present and that our brain “edits” reality for us.

A third solution, one that seems ludicrous at first glance, is that the slow sensory information is referred backwards in time from the near future to match the fast information.

Impossible, right?

Well, that’s where the work of Radin and Bierman come in. They have performed experiments in which it appears that the brain is reacting to stimuli before it is experienced. Radin and Bierman have conducted experiments in which subjects viewed random images flashing on a computer screen. Some of the images were rather neutral while others were meant to invoke a highly emotional response. The researchers discovered that the subjects responded strongly to the emotional images compared to the neutral ones, and that the response occurred between a fraction of a second to several seconds before the images appeared.

Bierman recently repeated these experiments using an fMRI brain scanner and documented emotional responses in brain activity up to 4 seconds before the stimuli. Other laboratories have made similar findings.

Assuming the data is being recorded and interpreted correctly, what's going on here? How is it possible that information can run backwards in time? Roger Penrose believes that quantum effects in the brain could explain backwards referral. He suggests that such effects may occur commonly and even routinely. “If in some manifestation of consciousness,” says Penrose, “classical reasoning about the temporal ordering of events leads us to a contradictory conclusion, then this is strong indication that quantum actions are indeed at work!" Neuroscientist Fred Alan Wolf has come to a similar conclusion and has offered his ‘Two-Time Observable Transactional Interpretation Model’ (TTOTIM) of consciousness.

Stuart Hameroff notes that quantum information can indeed run backwards, or be time indeterminate, citing the Aharonov formulation which suggests that each quantum state reduction has a dual vector, both forward and backwards in time.

What does this all mean? As Wolf notes, “we need to look toward altering our concept of time in some manner, not that this is an easy thing to do. Perhaps we should begin with the idea that a single event in time is really as meaningless as a single event in space or a single velocity. Meaningful relation arises as a correspondence, a relationship with some reference object.”

In addition, this not also adds further credence to the quantum consciousness hypothesis, but to panpsychist notions as well.

Hypnosis Cures Children of Bad Habits


Hypnosis is a good way to stop children's bad habits, including thumb sucking and bed wetting, a child psychology expert says.

Ran Anbar, a professor at the SUNY Upstate University Medical centre in New York, is speaking at the Paediatric Society's annual conference in Nelson this week.

He believes a range of childhood problems, including asthma, headaches and abdominal pain as well as psychological issues like thumb sucking and bed wetting, can be helped by hypnosis.

"What people think of as hypnosis can be misleading. It is not all about putting people to sleep and mind control. I can't make people do anything they don't want to do, I can just help them to change if they want."

Anbar became interested in hypnosis when his three-year-old daughter had to have surgery for a heart problem.

"She was very worried about having the bandages taken off so I developed a technique to help her– it is a bit like distraction," he said.

"I involved her with other things so she didn't notice the bandages being taken off. That is more what we are talking about in young children and then as they get older you can use different techniques.

"I would say 85 per cent of the young people I have treated have seen improvements in their conditions."

Anbar is hoping New Zealand paediatricians will be keen to include hypnosis in their work.

"It takes about 20 to 40 hours to learn the basic techniques so I hope people will be interested in looking into it," he said.

What Your Pet Is Thinking

By Sharon Begley
The Wall Street Journal

From the day they brought her home, the D’Avellas’ black-and-white mutt loathed ringing phones. At the first trill, Jay Dee would bolt from the room and howl until someone picked up. But within a few weeks, the D’Avellas began missing calls. When the phone rang, their friends later told them, someone would pick up and then the line would go dead.

One evening, Aida D’Avella solved the mystery. Sitting in the family room of her Newark, N.J., home, she got up as the phone rang, but the dog beat her to it. Jay Dee lifted the receiver off the hook in her jaws, replaced it and returned contentedly to her spot on the rug.

Just about every pet lover has a story about the astonishing intelligence of his cat, dog, bird, ferret or chinchilla. Ethologists, the scientists who study animal behavior, have amassed thousands of studies showing animals can count, understand cause and effect, form abstractions, solve problems, use tools and even deceive.

But lately scientists have gone a step further: Researchers are providing tantalizing evidence that animals not only learn and remember but also might have consciousness — in other words, they might be capable of thinking about their thoughts and knowing that they know.

In the past few years, top journals have published reports on self-awareness in dolphins and wild chimps whose different nut-cracking “technologies” constitute unique cultures. Others argue that rats have a sense of fun, mice show empathy for cage-mates, and scrub jays are capable of “mental time travel” that enables them to remember where they stashed worms and seeds.

While researchers have yet to attain the field’s holy grail — proving animals are self-aware — the findings already have broad implications.

Inner Secrets of Wealth Creation

By Enoch Tan

There are so many factors that affects the building or degeneration of wealth. The result of wealth is a combination of all these factors. Take one of them out and you would reduce your ability to create what you want drastically. Most people when talking about creating wealth tend to mention only some of the factors and not the rest. That is why it is important to see things in an integrated way than in a partial way.

Tithing and Giving.

Tithing tells God that He is the Source of all that you have in your life. Tithing acknowledges that God is the owner of all things and it is the first and foremost act that opens up the channel of blessings upon you and your world. Giving tells the Universe that you believe you are provided for. Giving is the most direct expression of your belief in abundance. Giving produces the physical vibrations of supplication like nothing else can.

Nothing speaks to the Universe louder, of your belief in abundance than giving. And when the Universe hears, more will be added unto you. Not as a reward, but because you truly believed in abundance. Giving tells the Universe that you believe you are provided for. For even as you empty your purse you fear not, demonstrating faith that you will remain whole, that your coffers will be replenished, and that your love for whomever you gave, is what’s most important. Verily, as you believe these things to be true, you will experience such truths, and abundance shall be showered upon you as if the heavens had opened up.

Most times, we think that we don’t have anything to give. Yet, if we look more closely, we’ll see that even the little we have could be shared with others. Let us not wait for a time when we think we’ll have lots and then we’ll give. By giving and sharing the little we have, we open up the storehouse of the universe and permit rivers of good to come our way. Take a chance on this universal principle. Take a chance on yourself. Universal principles always work.

Have you ever experienced a situation where you were asked to donate money to a particular cause, and looking at your shrinking bank balance you were torn between giving money or not? Many people have experienced being in this exact situation, but after deciding to go ahead and make a donation, these same people were very surprised when suddenly a sum of money came to them from some unexpected source to replace the money they just gave away. The truth is, if you hold on to your money, you risk losing the very thing you are hoarding. On the other hand, if you trust good things flow to those who give freely, you will always have funds available to suit your needs.

A gift with reservations is not a gift, it is a bribe. There is no promise of increase unless we give freely. Let go of the gift entirely. Recognize the universal scope of the law. Then the gift has a chance to go out and to come back multiplied. There is no telling how far the blessing may travel before it comes back. It is a beautiful and encouraging fact that the longer it is in returning, the more hands it is passing through and the more hearts it is blessing. All these hands and hearts add something to it in substance. It is increased all the more when it does return.

Do Psychedelic Medicines Have Healing Power?

By John Horgan
New Scientist

John Halpern clearly remembers what made him change his mind about psychedelic drugs. It was the early 1990s and the young medical student at a hospital in Brooklyn, New York, was getting frustrated that he could not do more to help the alcoholics and addicts in his care. He sounded off to an older psychiatrist, who mentioned that LSD and related drugs had once been considered promising treatments for addiction. "I was so fascinated that I did all this research," Halpern recalls. "I was reading all these papers from the 60s and going, whoa, wait a minute! How come nobody's talking about this?"

More than a decade later, Halpern is now an associate director of substance abuse research at Harvard University's McLean Hospital and is at the forefront of a revival of research into psychedelic medicine. He recently received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to give late-stage cancer patients the psychedelic drug MDMA, also known as ecstasy. He is also laying the groundwork for testing LSD as a treatment for dreaded super-migraines known as cluster headaches.

And Halpern is not alone. Clinical trials of psychedelic drugs are planned or under way at numerous centres around the world for conditions ranging from anxiety to alcoholism. It may not be long before doctors are legally prescribing hallucinogens for the first time in decades. "There are medicines here that have been overlooked, that are fundamentally valuable," says Halpern.

What You "See" Is What You Get

Excerpt from: 13 Secrets of World-Class Goal Achievers

World-Class Goal Achievers have trained themselves to “vision their dream.” They see it on the inside long before the world sees it on the outside.

One of my very favorite stories about visioning the dream has to do with Walt Disney’s widow. Whenever they were dedicating Epcot a reporter went up to Lillian Disney and said to her that it was a shame that Walt wasn’t there to see how everything had turned out. She turned to the reporter without any hesitation and replied, “Oh, he saw it, and long before we ever did.”

A key part of visioning your dream is the practice of visualization and there are a number of well-known examples of the power of visualization. None other than golfing legend Jack Nicklaus is said to have always played a course in his mind before actually beginning a game. In his own words: "I never hit a shot, not even in practice, without having a very sharp, in-focus picture of it in my head. First I see the ball where I want it to finish, nice and white and sitting up high on the bright green grass. Then the scene quickly changes, and I see the ball going there; its path, trajectory, and shape, even its behavior on landing. Then there is a sort of fade-out, and the next scene shows me making the kind of swing that will turn the previous images into reality."

One night in 1987, Jim Carrey was a 25-year-old struggling comic when he drove his old Toyota up to Mulholland Drive in the Hollywood Hills. Sitting there overlooking the City of Angels and visioning his future, Carrey wrote himself a check for $10 million. He dated it Thanksgiving 1995 and added the notation, "for acting services rendered." This story has become famous, of course, because Carrey's expression of brazen optimism turned out to be conservative. By the time 1995 actually rolled around, his rambunctious goofball roles in "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective," "The Mask" and "Dumb & Dumber" had yielded worldwide grosses of $550 million, and the newly minted superstar's asking price was up to $20 million per picture.

Brian Tracy says that, “All improvement in your life begins with an improvement in your mental pictures. Your mental pictures act as a guidance mechanism that causes you to act in ways that make your mental pictures come true in your life.

The Law of Correspondence says that “As within, so without.” It says that your outer world tends to be a reflection of your inner world-like a mirror. What you see in the world around you will be consistent over time with the world inside you.

The Law of Concentration says that “Whatever you dwell upon grows in your reality.” Those two laws in combination explain much of success and most of failure. Successful people are those who continually think about pictures and images of the people they would like to be and the lives they would like to lead.”

subconscious mind is extraordinarily powerful, but it is a servant, not a master. Your subconscious mind coordinates every aspect of your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, words, actions and emotions to fit a pattern consistent with your dominant mental pictures. It guides you to engage in the behaviors that move you ever closer to achieving the goals you visualize most of the time.

Science Finally Tackles Hypnosis

By Emily Anthes
Source: Seed Magazine

It seems hypnosis has been nearly everywhere over the past few centuries: onstage with entertainers swinging fat, gold watches; on couches with reclining psychoanalysis patients; in movies, books, and even children's cartoons. But the one gig hypnosis couldn't get was the scientific laboratory.

Until now.

The long-controversial practice of inducing a trancelike state through suggestion is getting a modern makeover by scientists armed with the latest neuroimaging tools and techniques. These researchers are beginning to offer evidence that, neurologically at least, hypnosis is entirely real.

"It makes sense that we are using modern tools of neuroscience research to understand what is a fascinating phenomenon," said David Spiegel, a psychiatrist at Stanford University. "It's good for hypnosis, and it's good for neuroscience."

Virtual Seminar Week Brings 49 World-Class Experts to Your Computer

What would it cost to attend all the seminars, trainings and live events of 49 of the top speakers in learning, leadership and lifestyle? Of course, any realistic answer would naturally include the total investment, in time, money and travel.

If the mere thought boggles the mind, two Internet marketing experts, Alex Mandossian and Rick Raddatz, have pioneered the perfect solution. And it's one reason why their innovation will revolutionize the seminar world.

Here is at a glance:

  • Total speakers: 49 (including 7 "mystery" speakers)
  • Total time investment: one week. (November 10th - 17th, 2006)
  • Total financial investment to attend all sessions: $97 - $297.
  • Total travel: zero.
As Mandossian shared, "We've banished the twin perils of the typical hotel seminar event: too much time and too much cost. And in so doing, for those who could never gain access to world-class, in-depth training, the door just swung wide open."

Mandossian speaks from experience. His 2005 training generated over $1 million in sales in only 27 days. So Mandossian is no stranger to the power of leverage via technology.

What makes this event unique is that is a virtual seminar, not a hotel seminar. A hotel seminar costs hundreds to thousands of dollars to attend (after travel, hotel, and seminar fee). VirtualSeminarWeek costs much less because attendees listen over the phone or web, from the comfort of their own homes.

Mandossian and Raddatz have assembled an impressive roster of professional speakers and recognized experts in a business, life, work and health. A small sample includes:

  • Jay Abraham --> the $5000/hour marketing mastermind
  • Mark Victor Hansen & Art Linkletter --> A lifetime of inspiration
  • Dr. Joe Mercola --> Founder of the #1 natural-health site in the world
  • Bob Proctor --> Modern-day Napolean Hill (Discover -The Secret-)
  • Harv Eker --> How to win the inner game of wealth
  • John Harricharan --> On the awesome powers of belief & abundance
  • Marc Allen --> Lazy person's guide to wealth and fullfillment
  • Kendra Todd --> 1st female winner of Donald Trump's Apprentice
  • Scott Martineau --> CEO and founder of Conscious One
And many more...
