Lucid Dreaming: A Beginner's Guide

By Tim Ferris / Author of The 4-Hour Work Week

From 1994-1995 I had the great pleasure of training with wrestling legend John Smith, 2-time gold medalist and 4-time world champion (domestic freestyle record of 80-0; international freestyle record of 100-5).

He was famous for his low leg attacks that made even Olympic finals look like textbook demonstrations.

The problem was, of course, that I was in New Hampshire at boarding school and had never met John Smith. I only trained with him 45-60 minutes per night while I was lucid dreaming. I went on to have my best career season, which culminated with a more than 20-0 record before the national championships…

I’ve since used lucid dreaming to:

  • - Accelerate skill acquisition (example: yabusame)
  • - Reactivate “forgotten” languages in less time
  • - Cultivate zen-like present-state awareness and decrease needless stress

How to Hypnotize Yourself Using the Best Me Technique

The "Best Me Technique" is a form of hyperempiria, or suggestion-enhanced experience, which involves your whole person in the content of a suggested event.

Every letter in "Best Me" corresponds with an element of suggestion, and these elements can be applied in a variety of ways: to place yourself into self-hypnosis, to pre-experience the accomplishment of a goal, and to end your self-hypnosis session.

It's the versatility and the thoroughness of these elements that makes the "Best Me Technique" of self-hypnosis distinct from meditation and visualization exercises. Instead of merely picturing something in the mind’s eye, the Best Me Technique enables us to paint upon the canvas of experience almost any masterpiece we may desire.

This article will show you how to use "Best Me" suggestions to pre-experience the rewards of future goals now, at full strength in the present when they are most needed for motivation, reducing or eliminating the need for will power. (It's also a great way to relax and fall asleep or take a power nap!)

A Microchip in Your Brain Will Control Technology

By Sharon Gaudin / Source: Computer World UK

By the year 2020, you won't need a keyboard and mouse to control your computer, say Intel researchers. Instead, users will open documents and surf the web using nothing more than their brain waves.

Scientists at Intel's research lab in Pittsburgh are working to find ways to read and harness human brain waves so they can be used to operate computers, television sets and cell phones. The brain waves would be harnessed with Intel-developed sensors implanted in people's brains.

The scientists say the plan is not a scene from a sci-fi movie, Big Brother won't be planting chips in your brain against your will. Researchers expect that consumers will want the freedom they will gain by using the implant.

How I Used Remote Viewing to Find My Soulmate

By Ed Dames / Source: Remote Viewing Project X

Imagine for just a second, that you had intuition so powerful, you knew exactly what the person next to you was thinking or even what someone across the street, across the city, or even across the country was doing.

Now visualize having the power to pick with surgical precision your future wife or husband, the right time to go into the tech sector and the right time to go into commodities, whether you should quit your job and start something completely new, or even where the tumor in a cancer patient was.

Imagine having the knowledge and guidance that will tell you, like a personal advisor, how to take each step so that every day becomes a leap towards accomplishing your life’s true purpose.

This is more than a possibility for you.

But first, let me start with the story behind the skill that will give you all that.

Top 10 Brain Foods that make you Smarter and Healthier

By Jillian McMullen / Health Source Magazine

When it comes to food, you have a wealth of delicious choices. And each one not only tastes good but also supplies unique health benefits. From blueberries to dark chocolate, leading nutritionists and physicians are pointing to certain foods that enhance brain power and, they say, a heart-healthy lifestyle.

Although theres no conclusive research about the healthful brain benefits of particular supplements, food sources rich in vitamin E and Omega 3 fatty acids may provide benefit, says Jillian McMullen, R.D., LD/N, Outpatient Clinical Dietician with Mayo Clinic.

Vitamin E-rich foods include vegetable oils, nuts, seeds, green leafy vegetables, and whole grains. Omega 3-rich foods include fish, walnuts and flax seeds.

We also know that adequate amounts of B vitamins are essential for brain function, says McMullen. Some studies suggest a protective role of vitamins B9 (folic acid) and B12, but more research is needed before we can recommend these supplements. It doesnt hurt to eat foods rich in folic acid such as green, leafy vegetables, fortified breads and cereals, and dried beans, as well as those chocked full of vitamin B12 like fish, meat, eggs, cheese and chicken.

5 Simple Steps to Creating Whatever You Desire

By Adrian Cooper
Excerpt from Our Ultimate Reality

We will now look at the very important process of manifestation; the conscious creation of your own reality; the manifestation of your wishes and desires. Always remember; there is absolutely nothing that you cannot be, do or have.

It is highly advisable before embarking on any manifestation project to meditate upon, or consider very deeply whether you really do need and desire any specific objective to manifest into your life and the life of those around you. Sometimes what seems to be a very good idea and desirable idea at the time turns out to be decidedly less than desirable once it manifests as a reality into your life.

It is most important to think only in terms of genuine needs and never of greed or the demands of the ego, as for example would be the case if you were comparing yourself with others. Before you manifest money, for example, you should think or meditate very deeply on what this money, or anything else you wish to manifest will really add, not only to your own life but also to that of your family, loved ones and others around you.

The process of creating anything and everything you could possibly desire is a natural, God given ability that everyone possesses, it is just that most simply do not know or realise it. The Universe is infinitely abundant; there are no limits on wealth or anything else.

When you know beyond any doubt that you are indeed a creator, a co-creator within this magnificent Universe in which we live, an aspect of The Source, The First Cause, God, then you will know beyond any doubts in your very being that you can realise all of your wishes.

2012: Carnival of Bunkum

By Mark Dery / Source: h+ Magazine

I like a good apocalypse as much as the next American, which is why I’ll be braving the Stepfordian horrors of the local mall for the opening of 2012, the German director Roland Emmerich’s latest exercise in disaster porn.

The trailer is awesome. It’s got John Cusack in a puddle-jumper plane dodging collapsing skyscrapers, John Cusack in a car playing dodge ball with a meteor shower, and John Cusack squealing around a corner on two wheels, yelling, to no one in particular, “When they tell you not to panic, that’s when you run!” Plus, it’s got every New Yorker’s idea of schadenfreude-gasm: California barrel-rolling into the Pacific.

According to the movie’s press packet, Emmerich and his writing partner Harald Kloser got a brainstorm when they learned that “the Mayan calendar is set to reach the end of its 13th cycle on December 21, 2012---and nothing follows that date. [...] ‘You will find millions of people, from all walks of life, who believe that in 2012 there will be some kind of shift in society, or a shift in spirit,’ says Kloser. The scope and variety of theories provided inspiration for Emmerich and Kloser as they penned their screenplay.’”

How to Increase Your Chance of Winning the Lottery

Source: Real Subliminals

Most people consider the lottery as purely a game of chance and luck. The statistical chance of winning the lottery is a staggering 14 million to 1 chance! However, more and more people have been trying different techniques to try and increase their chance of winning the lottery.

Not just mathematical and statistical analysis of the numbers or logical number picking systems, but more esoteric methods - methods to open up the mind, increase awareness and align your mind with the "universal source" or "universal consciousness".

A lot of this thinking came about due to the growing popularity of the law of attraction after the hit movie "The Secret". The law of attraction on a most basic level states that:

"Your thoughts (both conscious and unconscious) dictate your reality whether you are aware of it or not, and so whatever you think about you will manifest into your life"

This is a powerful statement, it basically means that we are in control of our lives and what we think about and the action we take dictates our lives.

How to Take Back Your Power

By Edwin Harkness Spina
Creator of Energy Center Clearing

Lately, I've been watching episodes from the 1970s TV show,
Kung Fu, on DVD. It starred David Carradine as Kwai Chang Caine, a half-Chinese, half-American Shaolin priest who wanders the post-civil war American West looking for his long-lost brother.

Caine is a martial arts master who resorts to using his
fighting skills only when someone's safety is at stake. Kung Fu introduced many Westerners to some of the basic tenets of Eastern thought. Like fine art and true wisdom, many of the teachings espoused in the show are timeless and universal in nature.

The Men Who Stare At Goats: The Power of Psychic Spying

By Florence Waters / Source: The Telegraph

The sign on the door said ‘Remote Viewing workshop’, which didn’t give much away. It might as well have read, ‘Please abandon your logic here’.

Inside was an ordinary office meeting room, with a smiley, professional briefcase-carrying businessman preparing a training session. The contents of the workshop were less predictable. They were based on a training manual written by the military in the late 1970s, in order to train soldiers to be able to harness their paranormal powers so that they would be able to spy on the enemy, using telepathy.

I had come to the workshop to get a better understanding of the historical events behind this autumn’s comedy, The Men Who Stare at Goats, which is based on a true story about the US military.

The film is inspired by the events laid out in journalist Jon Ronson’s extensively researched book by the same name about a group of soldiers, who allegedly called themselves ‘The Jedi’, and who were trained to be able to fight wars in esoteric and “non-violent” ways.

Yoga Better Than Medicine for Back Pain

By S. L. Baker / Source: Natural News

According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), low back pain is an enormous health and economic problem in the U.S. In fact, Americans spend at least $50 billion annually on the condition. It's the most common cause of job-related disability and a leading contributor to missed work days.

Although most occurrences of low back pain go away within a few days, the NINDS web site states low back pain can become chronic and lead to more serious conditions. However, new research shows there's natural, drug-free and effective help for those with chronic low back pain -- the ancient practice of yoga.

A study just published in the journal Spine found that a group of low back pain sufferers who regularly practiced yoga postures had less pain, improved function, and a better mood. What's more, they were far less likely to take drugs for their back problem than a matched group who received standard medical therapy.

The Akashic Records and How to Read Them

By Steve G. Jones / Creator of Read Akashic Records

If you want to learn more about the akashic records then you came to the right place. The akashic records are a universal filing system where every thought, emotion, action, and experience is recorded. The records are written on a substance called 'akasha' or soniferous ether. Akasha, combined with earth, water, air, and fire represent the five human senses: sight, smell, touch, hearing, and taste.

The akashic records can be accessed by reaching certain states of consciousness. Hypnosis can help you explore the akashic records. You don't have to be a psychic or have ESP in order to read the records. Anyone can read and learn from the akashic records.

The possibilities are endless. You can learn about everything that has ever happened in the history of the universe. You can hear any thought that has ever been conceived. You can feel any emotion that has ever been felt. Everything that has ever existed is at your finger tips.


The Wall Street Psychic Who Predicted the Financial Meltdown

By Helena de Bertodano / Source: The Telegraph

A few blocks from Wall Street lives a woman who is not in the least bit surprised at the recent economic upheaval on her doorstep. In fact, she predicted it years ago and is rather enjoying it.

'I love crisis,' says Laura Day, a psychic who advises major corporations on how to direct their business dealings. 'I love turning it around. I'm going to brag – in the last few weeks I've become a hero. My clients were all prepared for this. They were out of the market a year ago and now they're ringing me saying, "The whole world is freaking out and I'm just sitting here calm."'

The 49-year-old mother has earned more than $10 million (£6.4 million) in the past 15 years advising corporations and individuals including Demi Moore, Jennifer Aniston and Rosanna Arquette. Day's otherwordly expertise doesn't simply encompass the financial; Arquette credits her with saving her daughter's life by sensing a potentially fatal medical condition.

While there is nothing very surprising about the Hollywood A-list embracing the help of a psychic, it is harder to imagine mainstream businesses enlisting her services. She takes on five businesses at a time, each of which pays her $10,000 (£6,400) a month for 24-hour access to her.

Why Our Brains Will Never Live in the Matrix

By Athena Andreadis / Source: h+ Magazine

When surveying the goals of transhumanists, I found it striking how heavily many of them favor conventional engineering. This seems inefficient and inelegant, since such engineering reproduces slowly, clumsily and imperfectly, what biological systems have fine-tuned for eons, from nanobots (enzymes and miRNAs) to virtual reality (lucid dreaming).

Recently, I was reading an article about memory chips. (See Resources) In it, the primary researcher makes two statements that fall in the “not even wrong” category: “Brain cells are nothing but leaky bags of salt solution,” and “I don’t need a grand theory of the mind to fix what is essentially a signal-processing problem.”

And it came to me in a flash that many transhumanists are uncomfortable with biology and would rather bypass it altogether for two reasons, each exemplified by these sentences. The first is that biological systems are squishy — they exude blood, sweat and tears, which are deemed proper only for women and weaklings. The second is that, unlike silicon systems, biological software is inseparable from hardware. And therein lies the major stumbling block to personal immortality.

How Science Discovered the Silva Method

By Laura Silva / Source: The Silva Life System

In the beginning, José Silva was alone in his research. Even his wife Paula was skeptical and cautious until she eventually saw the benefits in the work he was doing with their children. A few friends in Laredo became interested and listened to his ideas and helped him when he asked them to, but many more were suspicious and even hostile.

Eventually Silva’s work attracted the attention of one scientist, who became a close friend and associate, and who brought the research findings to the attention of many other scientists. This pioneering research, overcoming many obstacles and challenges, has provided José Silva with many wonderful memories of the people and events that helped us to take the first step into the second phase of human evolution on the planet by succeeding with metaphysics.

This is the story about how scientists became aware of the new science that José Silva has named “psychorientology.”

10 More Amazing Facts About Dreams

Source: The List Universe

Every year scientific groups and national organizations conduct studies and experiments examining human dreams. The study of dreams is known as oneirology.

Progress is being made in this area of work, but as a population we know very little about the content and purpose of our dreams. One thing is for sure, the images, thoughts, and emotions that pass through our bodies during sleep can greatly influence our outlook on life.

Keep in mind that the word dream stems from the Middle English word dreme, meaning joy and music. Following our first list about dreams, here are ten more amazing facts about dreams.
