Have No Fear - There's a Drug For That

Promising research shows how to increase a chemical within us that counteracts fear.

Scientists from Duke University and the National Institute of Health studied an endocannabinoid chemical, called anandamide, that is secreted naturally in humans and causes bliss while reducing anxiety. The chemical works similarly to marijuana. 

By blocking an enzyme called FAAH that breaks down this chemical, the researchers successfully reduced fear in mice and believe that the same thing could very well work for humans.

How to Move Forward Daily to Attract Your Goals

By Valerie Dawson, Exclusive for MindTrip Magazine

If you don't first get your mind and feelings in line with what you want, all the action in the world won't do much to help you. You can probably think of plenty of people who work ridiculously hard and still have very little to show for it. Maybe you are even one of those people. I used to be, so I know what a frustrating place that is to be.

However, action is not such a bad thing either, and in fact it can be a great help in getting things moving in a better direction.

So - while you are focusing on improving your thoughts and choosing more positive emotions and expectations, you may also want to begin taking action on just one thing each day that will help you to improve your financial situation. It does not have to be a BIG action - just something to begin moving you in the direction you want to go.

Can Quantum Physics Explain Near-Death Experiences?

A near-death experience happens when quantum substances which form the soul leave the nervous system and enter the universe at large, according to a remarkable theory proposed by two eminent scientists.

According to this idea, consciousness is a program for a quantum computer in the brain which can persist in the universe even after death, explaining the perceptions of those who have near-death experiences.

Dr Stuart Hameroff, Professor Emeritus at the Departments of Anesthesiology and Psychology and the Director of the Centre of Consciousness Studies at the University of Arizona, has advanced the quasi-religious theory.

It is based on a quantum theory of consciousness he and British physicist Sir Roger Penrose have developed which holds that the essence of our soul is contained inside structures called microtubules within brain cells.

Top 10 Attempts to Use Magic and the Supernatural to Win Wars

By Jeff Kelly/ Source: ListVerse

Anyone who has sat through a course on medieval history knows that there was once a time when people believed in the power of magic, as a tool that could be used to crush their enemies. 

Eventually people realized how silly such ideas were -- and ultimately, magic on the battlefield became limited to nerds LARPing around a local park, the only real magic employed being a powerful anti-coitus charm.

Or so at least you would think. Here are ten real cases of modern governments that tried to harness magic in order to win real wars.

Ancient Catholic Prophecy Claims This Will Be the Last Pope

Ancient Catholic prophecies by a revered Irish bishop end with the chilling prediction that the new Pope, Pope Francis — who Tuesday celebrated his inauguration to succeed Benedict XVI — will be the last Pope.

St. Malachy, an Archbishop of Armagh who died in 1148, left behind a list of 112 Popes that has amazed some with its remarkable accuracy.

Malachy used a short phrase in Latin to describe each Pope, beginning with Celestine II and "From a castle on the Tiber." That Pope's birth name was Guido di Castello.

New Exercises to Increase Your Intelligence

For most of human history, in fact right up to the end of the twentieth century, it was widely believed throughout the scientific and academic communities that it was impossible for someone to increase their intelligence.

These experts in psychology and neuroscience thought that although you could accumulate large amounts of knowledge through your life, helping you to put your innate intelligence to better use, the fundamental characteristics of intelligence were determined by genetic factors.

Their understanding was that these factors could be influenced by a stimulating environment while you were growing up, but that once you reached adulthood your intelligence was locked into place, only to gradually decline with age.

Fortunately we now know that is not the case. Neuroscience research from the last two decades has shown there are a variety of methods you can use to get reliable, lasting and transferable increases in your intelligence.

Free Video - Wealth and Abundance in 2013

By Christie Marie Sheldon,
Creator of
 Unlimited Abundance

Have you ever stopped and wondered what progress society has made in the last 30 years?

If you've tuned into the news lately, you already know the answer is disappointing. It turns out that we're actually worse off now than we were 30 years ago.

So it's natural to wonder - what changed? Part of the problem is all the talk of cut-backs and recession in the media over the past few years.

You see, when you're surrounded by that kind of negativity, it's very hard not to internalize it... And your subconscious naturally reacts by telling you to focus your energy on keeping what you have now instead of on what you might achieve.

But here's the truth.

You ARE able to attract the life you desire – the paycheck, the house, the promotion – and getting it has nothing to do with your education, intelligence or luck...

Is Telepathy Between Couples Real?

When Julie Beischel met Mark Boccuzzi at a conference and agreed to participate in an experiment on telepathy, she didn't immediately tell him about the powerful connections she'd felt to him; after all, they were strangers.

Now married, however, Beischel and Boccuzzi credit telepathy for helping them meet and fall in love.

"It was like nothing I had ever encountered," Beischel said.

The data from the experiment backed up her perception, however, and the couple eventually asked Dean Radin, senior scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) that conducted the summer study program, to marry them.

Top 10 Happiness Books to Improve Your Mood

The year is still young, and as we think of making and breaking those inevitable New Year's resolutions, we cannot help but ask: Why can't we just be happy?
It is the perfect time to look at new books on happiness and the psychology of happiness and see what developments have emerged in the last few years.

While the positive psychology movement began in the late 1990s with Martin E.P. Seligman as its recognized guru, self-help sections in bookstores have recently seen increased demand for books on happiness.

In 2009, Psychology Today described what it saw as a "happiness frenzy" with "4,000 books published in 2008 while a mere 50 books were published on the topic in 2000."

The books listed below should satisfy readers wanting to know how they can become happier right now. "Rather than pursue the state of happiness," write the authors ofThe Creativity Cure, "we believe in pursuing habits that give rise to happiness, thereby creating more opportunities for experiencing moments of joy, inspiration, purpose and meaning."

Discover Infinite Possibilities in the Zero Point Field

By Victor Da Ponte / Source: Quantum Powers and Beyond

Every day, we hear about all the latest and greatest new developments in mind power techniques. How do we know what is real and what is simple fancy? 

Within all of this apparent confusion, you can be sure of one thing: your thoughts carry their own energies and they really do affect your reality. Today, you'll learn what the really means for you, and how you can tap into the infinite zero point field to access your own infinite potential.

We've all heard that thoughts create our reality. In fact, it's no longer a secret that thoughts even have their own energy. A large part of learning to realize your potential lies in knowing how to go from being at the mercy of your thoughts to learning how to control your own destiny. Not only do thoughts have their own energy; they also have a strong effect on our physical bodies and mental/emotional states.

Schoolgirl Exorcist Sisters: 'We're Not Like Normal Teenagers'

By Jeff Maysh / Source: Daily Mail UK

The five teenage girls might look like they're in a normal class, eagerly reading their textbooks and answering their teacher's questions diligently.

But the textbooks are Bibles and the girls all have crosses instead of protractors, as they train to become exorcists - real exorcists who fight demons, curses and evil spells.

'People do look a bit surprised when I arrive,' admits graduate exorcist Brynne Larson. 'When people call for an exorcist, they don't picture a 16-year-old high school girl.'

Deep Brain Stimulation versus Parkinson's Disease

A device that delivers electrical shocks directly into the brain has been shown to alleviate symptoms in people with early stage Parkinson's disease better than the best treatments being used today.

Normally reserved as a last resort for patients with severe symptoms and for whom drugs are ineffective, the deep brain stimulation's newly found effectiveness could promote it to the first line of attack against the disease at the earliest detection of symptoms.

The Spiritual Traveler's Creed

By Dr. Stewart Bitkoff

The breath that does not repeat the name of God is a wasted breath. –Kabir

According to Sufi tradition, humanity originated 'far beyond the stars' and is on a return journey back to the Source. While in the earth phase, there are numerous opportunities to embrace 'our real' or 'lasting nature,' and begin the spiritual journey home.

In this physical world, because we are in a sense estranged from our real or lasting nature, there is an unease and inner hunger that pushes us forward to search and make the inner spiritual connection.

While in this world, many become fooled and attempt to fill the inner emptiness with all manner of things and experiences; this further compounds the problem of remembering who we are.

Just like ET in the movie, we need to contact home -- through our own inner spiritual awareness -- so the factors might align and we begin the return journey.

The Psychology of Being Too Beautiful

Last year, a modeling contest claimed to have found the most beautiful woman in Britain: Florence Colgate, an 18-year-old who worked at a chip shop in Kent.

As the Daily Mail later pointed out, Colgate's face is nearly exactly symmetrical, with measurements matching ratios scientists have identified in the faces of exceptionally beautiful people: the distance between the pupils just less than half the distance between the ears, the distance from eyes to mouth just more than one-third the distance from hairline to chin.

From the ancient Greek "golden ratio" to Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man to our preferences today, physical perfection seems to come down to proportion.

Anti-Virus For Your Mind

By Tom Murasso, Creator of The Sourxe

"Whether you think that you can, or that you can't, you are usually right." -Henry Ford

So true are the words of Henry Ford as he describes the power of the mind and the thoughts we think...

Whether you think you can - or you think you can't - YOU'RE RIGHT!!!

But, let's be honest. We've been brought up to believe that the world isn't an easy place to navigate...

...and we've been taught that it's down right HARD to manifest wealth, health, and happiness. We think we CAN'T the majority of the time because... the biggest blockade to manifesting our desires is, well... the BLOCKADE of limiting beliefs we've downloaded from parents, schools, the media, etc.

Here's a short video explaining everything...
