HJ: We do not see life as it is — we see life as we are. And yet most people assume we see the world objectively. And therein lies a great source of pain and suffering because we are projecting our thoughts and beliefs onto the world around us, believing that this is how the world is, when it is just us playing a game with ourselves. And so we constantly fool ourselves into believing what we already believe is true, is true. And we create our reality and then let it control us. But it doesn’t have to be this way. You can shift your reality once you start seeing life as a reflection of your own heart and mind — when you understand that you read whatever meaning into situations you choose to believe, you can then use ‘reality’ as a tool for self-reflection and growth. This is one of the most powerful shifts you can make because it switches you from a victim into a powerful creator. It is how you shift your reality by shifting yourself.

With our daily lifestyles consistently filled with endless stress and distraction, we may be overlooking an often forgotten, yet majorly important aspect of our bodies: our brains. In a culture that moves a mile a minute, making some quality time for you and your mind can often be a difficult thing. We often work like mindless drones and are constantly bombarded with daily distractions such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and television, which can simply take over all of our spare moments. And not to mention other stress-filled aspects of our lives such as dealing with money, houses, children and so much more. Read more of this post

HJ: Your genetic code is not set in stone at birth. Researchers are now discovering that it responds dynamically to your thoughts and beliefs. Therefore, it is absolutely possible to upgrade your genetic code by getting a handle on these aspects of yourself.
In every sense, we are now entering the age of the mind, sparked in part by the rapidly expanding and revolutionary field of neuroscience, which is proving many of the new age concept long-held suspect by many in the mainstream scientific community. By studying the mind-body interaction more closely and with the incredible technologies now at our disposal, it is quickly becoming clear that the mind and body are very closely interrelated and have a massive influence on each other.
But what’s more is that by understanding this relationship, we can effectively manipulate it to accomplish incredible things, like healing ourselves physical and actually changing, or rather upgrading, our genetic code. Read more of this post

Perhaps one of the most defining features of humanity is our capacity for empathy — the ability to put ourselves in others’ shoes. A new University of Virginia study strongly suggests that we are hardwired to empathize because we closely associate people who are close to us — friends, spouses, lovers — with our very selves.”With familiarity, other people become part of ourselves,” said James Coan, a psychology professor in U.Va.’s College of Arts & Sciences who used functional magnetic resonance imaging brain scans to find that people closely correlate people to whom they are attached to themselves. The study appears in the August issue of the journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience. Read more of this post

The Dharma Of Sound Healing
By Diane Mandle | Sound Energy Healing
Music has always been recognized as having a powerful effect on human consciousness. But in the past few years, there has been more research into the science of sound, and how it can be used to improve our lives. We are learning why different kinds of music and sounds have the effects that they do on the body, emotions, mind, and spirit. Science tells us that all life is energy in one form or another. Further, this energy is eternal, changing and morphing from one shape or form to another. Each ‘energy shape’ has its own particular pattern of frequencies, or vibrations. When one form experiences a matching frequency in the form of a musical note, the form will begin to vibrate in sympathy with the note in sympathetic resonance. A strong enough vibration can even cause a form to restructure itself, as has been noted with cancer cells, crystal glasses, water crystals etc. Read more of this post

Evolutionary psychiatry, as a practical matter, is a way of applying evolutionary theory to the practice of medicine in order to elucidate low-risk, holistic, and effective ways to improve and prevent common modern mental health conditions. Though we are born with certain genes, temperaments, and can’t always prevent neglect, abuse, and trauma as we develop, there are many ways in which we can alter our environments and habits to more closely emulate the evolutionary past. One of the most important interventions I use as a practicing psychiatrist is to try to improve sleep quality. Read more of this post

HJ: The truth is that we are all tapping into the collective consciousness rather frequently without actually being aware of it. The process of becoming aware, however, makes quite a bit of difference and allows us to get the most out of this ability and begin to cultivate it rather than experiencing it haphazardly. This often leads us to become closer to others and strengthen bonds and relationships, ultimately bringing greater happiness and fulfillment into our lives.
Furthermore, the existence of a field of collective consciousness is a useful paradigm from which to view events in the world and in your life. It offers many answers to seemingly paradoxical questions as it helps to explain human behavior and societal organization.
From our vantage point, this innate connection between all beings helps to re-establish the truth that there is much more going on than meets the eye at any given time, far beyond the understanding of modern science. This reignites the mystical wonder that helps us become curious and passionate about life outside the confines of the sometimes overbearing, mechanistic worldview that we are constantly presented with by mainstream media and society at large.
This is an excellent primer and thought piece on collective consciousness that we truly hope you will enjoy. Read more of this post

HJ: Mind energy is like any skill — use it or lose it. Since most of us do not consciously use our minds to move energy, we have lost touch with the ability to do so. However, that does not mean it is impossible, as many rationalists would have you believe. It simply requires you practice diligently with some expert guidance, which this article offers, leaving it up to you to practice diligently.
The ability to control and direct mind energy is well-known in Taoist schools who have long practiced powerful Qi Gong techniques for this very purpose. The legendary Taoist Qi master John Chang was filmed demonstrating his incredible ability to harness and direct Chi in this IMAX documentary many years ago — watch a clip here: Qi Gong Master Demonstrates Unbelievable Powers
The above mentioned video gives an idea of what is possible for those who are able to master this skill. However, even without this level of advanced ability, the benefits of learning to harness and direct mental energies are truly incredible. The fantastic article below by Ilchi Lee is an excellent primer to get you started learning to work with your own innate, powerful talents. Read more of this post
