The Secret Mental Genius Experiment

In the early 1960s, Russia and Germany got together to perform an experiment.
Two highly respected psychologists - Dr Vladimir Raikov of Moscow, and Dr Milan Ryzl of Prague - set on a mission to help further understand the human mind.
One of their experiments involved hypnosis, and seemed quite simple:

They hypnotized subjects into believing they were someone else.
It sounds basic. Yet the results were phenomenal.

One subject was interested in playing the violin. She had only ever attended one basic lesson. During the hypnosis experiment, she was asked to believe she was a powerful classical violinist. On her second lesson, the instructor was astonished at her new-found level of skill - and immediately enrolled her into the advanced class.

Despite no longer believing she was someone else, her new genius skills remained.
Another subject was hypnotized into thinking she was the artist Raphael. Despite not being able to paint "so much as a smiley face," her drawing ability suddenly rocketed after the hypnosis. Within a month, she had the drawing skills of a professional designer.

Later experiments showed that this hypnotic trance wasn't even required.
Simply by following a SECRET mental technique, individuals could "pretend" and "adapt" the genius skills of absolutely anyone - all within just minutes.
Depending on the genius they chose, people became more business-savvy... more confident... more creative... more artistic... better at sports... they were able to write better...


Become AnyoneDo this. Imagine for a moment if you could be anyone, acquire the skills of any person, who would you want to be? What would you want to excel at more than anything else?
Think about that and then click here to learn more about the Secret Method: How to Become Anyone

Using the Force - How George Lucas Achieved Success

From quiet, humble beginnings in Modesto, California to a multi-million dollar ranch and hub of activity in Nicasio, Lucas has taken the film industry by storm.

From his technological innovations to his business strategies to his beloved science fiction androids, Lucas has become a household name and an immortal part of American cinematic history. “Good luck has its storms,” Lucas once said. But, his success has had little to do with luck. How did he do it?

Was Yoda a Good Guru?

Yoda

Something always bothered me about Star Wars. It wasn't Lucas' re-editing or the three prequels damned to sci-fi hell by angry nerds -- I always thought Yoda made no sense.

The little green guru was supposed to be profound and insightful but what emerged from his backwards speech struck me as banal. Yoda's lines about fear and bravery sounded less like philosophy honed by 900 years and more like the vacuous pronouncements of a life coach.

On top of all that, I wasn't sure that Yoda's advice was even helpful. Instructing Luke to never get angry, to never fear his enemies, seemed ignorant of human nature -- perhaps even psychologically harmful. So I asked a psychologist to find out if Yoda's advice was psychologically any good.

Dr. Nakia Gordon is a professor of psychology at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Her research focuses on how we use emotion to navigate our lives. In an email exchange, I sent Dr. Gordon a selection of Yoda's most famous lines from all the Star Wars films.

30 Incredible Pieces Of Wisdom From Nikola Tesla

Source: The Tesla Code

Nikola Tesla is often called the man who invented the 20th century, and there are lots of good reasons for that. And yet he's still not nearly as famous as some of his contemporaries, like Marie Curie and Albert Einstein.

Nikola Tesla was a Serbian American inventor, engineer, physicist, and futurist who is most well known for his design of the modern alternating current electric supply system.

He emigrated to the United States in 1884 to work with Thomas Edison in New York 
City, but with financial backers, he was able to set out on his own.

In the end, he dies alone in room 3327 of the New Yorker Hotel. He died of a coronary thrombosis and his work covered up for decades. Recently, there has been an awakening in interest in his life. These are some of his quotes that we think will help challenge your ideas about science and the world at large.


The Untold Story Of Napoleon Hill, The Greatest Self-Help Scammer Of All Time

Napoleon Hill is the most famous conman you've probably never heard of. Born into poverty in rural Virginia at the end of the 19th century, Hill went on to write one of the most successful self-help books of the 20th century: Think and Grow Rich.

In fact, he helped invent the genre. But it's the untold story of Hill's fraudulent business practices, tawdry sex life and membership in a New York cult that makes him so fascinating.

Stoicism: 7 Practical Lessons for Living a Joyful Life

A Tiny Powerful Idea
By Sam Thomas Davies,
Author of 
A Tiny, Powerful Idea

Many of us have trouble naming our big goal in life.

Sure, we want a loving partner, a good job and a nice house, but really these are just some of the things we want.

What we really want, is a philosophy of life, a strategy for attaining our big goal…

That strategy is Stoicism.

Founded in Anthems by Zeno of Citium, Stoicism was one of the most popular and successful schools of philosophy, particularly in ancient Rome.

But Stoicism is more than analysis of arguments; it’s a way of life. In fact, its insight and advice are still remarkably applicable today, and entrepreneurs including Ryan Holiday, Phil Libin and Tim Ferriss, are strong proponents of the philosophy (Ferriss even calls Stoicism a “personal operating system” for anyone who wants high performance under high stress).

So, with that said, let’s discuss seven, practical techniques for attaining tranquility and living a better life.

5 Best Meditation Books for Beginners

A while back, we talked about guided meditation and how it can help you, especially if you don’t find it easy to control your mind – which is normal when you start practicing. We also shared some apps designed to ease you into regular meditation.

Today, let’s look at some books that you can read to help you on your meditation journey.

The Fish That Gets You High and Gives You Horrible Nightmares

People love good food and getting high. From mushroom tea to weed brownies, whipping up a special dish containing mind-altering ingredients is an age-old tradition. For some who live off the Indian Ocean, their drug of choice is served up as a nice bowl of curry fish stew.

On the most recent episode of VICELAND's Hamilton's Pharmacopeia, we met Jean Pascal Quod, an esteemed marine biologist who specializes in studying neurotoxins found in tropical fish. Quod spends much of his time researching the unique marine life found on RĂ©union Island.

Located in the Indian Ocean in Africa, RĂ©union is home to various fish containing mysterious psychoactive substances that locals consume to get high, hallucinate, and have intense dreams—or nightmares. However, not much is known about these "dream fish," which have only been found in the Indian Ocean and possibly the Mediterranean Sea, but not documented in similar climates like the Pacific Ocean or Caribbean.

We called Quod to find out more about these perplexing fish and what curious diners should know before digging in themselves.

How to Live a Great Life with No Money

By Mike Cernovich, author of Gorilla Mindset

I know what it’s like to be the poorest kid in class, to wear the same clothes every day, and to wonder if the car will start. No matter how many digits appear in my bank account, my heart will always be with those who grew up poor or are struggling.

My lifestyle is relatively modest. I fly premium economy rather than business class, I don’t own a car, Rolex, HDTV, or home. My life’s possession fit in a large suitcase, backpack, and day bag.

While money is great and you should go make as much as possible, there are ways to live a nice life even if you’re currently struggling.

Poverty is a mindset. You’re only as poor as other monkeys make you feel.


Ayahuasca vs. Depression

Gary, a London-based ayahuasca user, believes that ayahuasca can alleviate depression. Before he started taking the South American plant-based brew, he suffered from intense bouts of anxiety and panic attacks.

“[Ayahuasca] is a very potent tool that shakes your psyche up and puts it back together again [...] The first time I took it I felt like I was dying,” said Gary, who requested his surname remain anonymous. “It’s a radical means to fast-forward your self-development.”

The Magic Power of Magic Mushrooms

The hallucinogen in magic mushrooms may no longer just be for hippies seeking a trippy high.

Researchers at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine have been studying the effects of psilocybin, a chemical found in some psychedelic mushrooms, that’s credited with inducing transcendental states.

Now, they say, they’ve zeroed in on the perfect dosage level to produce transformative mystical and spiritual experiences that offer long-lasting life-changing benefits, while carrying little risk of negative reactions.

Neuroscientists Can Now Remove Fear from Your Brain

A team of neuroscientists from the University of Cambridge, Japan and the US, just figured out how to ‘erase’ specific fears and phobias from the human brain.

Using a combination of artificial intelligence and brain scanning technology, scientists are hoping to forgo more traditional therapies used to help people overcome their fears, such as aversion therapy, but the repercussions of a seemingly helpful method of removing unconscious material from the brain might result in some rather colorful results.

43 Facts About Your Brain That Will Blow Your Mind

If this year's iPhone release taught us anything, it's that we're a society which craves new technology, jumping at the chance to replace last year's breakthrough advancement with one that's a millimeter thinner.

But what we often forget is that we already own the most dynamic, efficient machine ever created: the human brain.

The (roughly) three-pound supercomputer inside your skull simultaneously processes facts and faces, stores memories, sweeps out toxins, controls movement and speech and makes decisions. And over the last few years, thanks in part to advancements in neuroimaging techniques, scientists are discovering even more about how remarkable our brain really is.


The Magic Power of Switchwords

By Shunyam Nirav, Author of Switchwords

Wouldn't it be great to have a magic wand that you could just wave at any situation or creative project, and have it turn out beneficially just as you wish?

Actually, we all have such a wand! However, most of us have not been aware of it, and have never received an instruction manual for its use. (So I wrote one!)

Your Word is Your Magic Wand

Your word is your wand — and if you're reading this e-zine, you likely have become aware that thought is creative. Intentional creative thoughts bring about intentional desired results.

Intentional creative thoughts can take the form of images or words, or both. We can envision an image and be grateful like it's really already so (for example, a trip to Hawaii or making a million dollars). Or we can declare or affirm a beneficial condition or state of affairs, in words (for example, "My connection to infinite being and infinite intelligence is always sufficient to yield me a huge financial fortune") and be grateful also for that being so. Or we can do both image and text together.

Learn the Secrets of the Universe from the Smartest Man Who Has Ever Lived

Source: The Tesla Code

In 1856, in modern day Croatia, the world's most brilliant, gentle and beautiful mind was born.

His name was Nikola Tesla, and he was undoubtedly the smartest man who ever lived.

His understanding of the universe, while he was alive, was decades ahead of anyone in the world. He used that understanding of the universe to uncover secrets and develop inventions we are only beginning to understand today.

Imagine a man who died in 1946 created technology we are just starting to understand!

He was able to do that because he knew a secret about the universe, and now you can use that exact same secret to get anything you want out of life. Stick with me for a few minutes, and you'll see how the Tesla Code can help you shape your life into anything you want it to be...
