The Power of Eight by Lynne McTaggart

You may know Lynne as the author of books like The FieldThe Intention Experiment, and now her newest bookThe Power of Eight. An award-winning journalist and international bestselling author, Lynne wanted to learn more about the healing power of thought. Was it really occurring, or are the anecdotal stories we hear no more than the subjective experience of a few individuals? She didn’t expect a close, scientific look to reveal enough hard evidence to support people’s assertions.

Lynne organized groups of people worldwide and invited them to participate in large group healing experiments. Then, she conducted rigorous scientific study of these groups to see what was really going on. What happened next transformed her from a skeptic into a believer.  In the 30 experiments Lynne has run to date, 26 have evidenced measurable, mostly significant change. Thus far, these controlled scientific experiments have shown focused group thought can:

  • Change certain basic physical property of leaves
  • Make plants grow up to twice as high as normal
  • Alter the molecular cluster structure of tap water
  • Raise the pH of (and so purify) polluted water
  • Lower violence in a war-torn or crime-ridden area
  • Improve the health of patients with diagnosed conditions

“Both the Power of Eight circles and the global experiments were revealing something more,” Lynne writes, “something central about human consciousness and its ability to trespass over the boundaries of objects and other people, even the borders of space and time. We’d repeatedly demonstrated that the human mind has the ability to operate non-locally, move through walls and over seas and continents, and change matter thousands of miles away.”

The Great American Total Eclipse: August 21, 2017

August 21 will mark a rare event for North America: a total solar eclipse. This celestial event, billed as the “Great American Total Solar Eclipse,” will be visible from most of the continent. The longest period when the moon completely blocks the sun from any given location along the path will be about two minutes and 40 seconds. The last time the contiguous U.S. saw a total eclipse was in 1979.

Research Mapping Emotions Shows Strong Mind-Body Connection

Love makes us warm all over, and now scientists are creating body maps to prove it. A team of scientists in Finland has used a topographical self-reported method to reveal the effects that different emotional states have on bodily sensations. After five experiments and over 700 participants from Finland, Sweden and Taiwan, who reported where on their bodies they felt different emotions , the scientists discovered surprising consistencies. Their research findings were published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences

Jude Currivan & Ubiquity University Explore “The Cosmic Hologram” in a New Online Course

Jude Currivan, author of The Cosmic Hologram, is offering, in conjunction with Ubiquity University, a marvelous new course: The Cosmic Hologram – Explore In-formation at the Center of Creation. As she explains on her website, www.judecurrivan.com, “Humanity urgently needs to expand our collective awareness and radically change our behaviors if we are to survive and thrive as a species and live in sustainable harmony with our planetary home, Gaia. Our global emergency needs transforming into the emergence of our conscious evolution. To answer this need, a scientifically based and integral WholeWorld-View is emerging…”

Meditation, Mystical Experiences & Brain Mapping

| by Merryn Jose

I am a huge fan of Dr. Joe Dispenza’s books, CDs and DVDs . First featured on the documentary, What the Bleep do we Know? this leading neuroscientist and lecturer has written such best sellers as Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind (Health Communications, Inc., 2007) and Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself: How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One (Hay House, 2012). You Are The Placebo (Hay House, 2014), his latest book, builds on his previous work. Recently, I was delighted to come across a wonderful new outlet for Dr. Dispenza’s work: www.quantumworld.tv. On there I found a video, Brain, Mind, and the Placebo Effect….

Talking to Jude Currivan, PhD, about The Cosmic Hologram.

Jude Currivan has written several books and has been a long-time friend of Merlian News. We loved her latest book, The Cosmic Hologram, and its empowering message about reality and our roles as co-creators. So we jumped at the chance to ask Jude how she came to write it, and why its message is so relevant for us today.

The Consciousness Field Project: Remote Intentions for Wellness

The Consciousness Field Project tests the latest advances in Remote Energy see if there is an impact on individual wellness. Developed by Deepak Chopra and the Merraki Institute, the project utilizes research from Dr. William Tiller and Dr. Gabriele Hilberg, merging the fields of psychology, physics and consciousness. Like remote healing, or remote prayer, it will allow participants to partake regardless of their location. Over a period of 18 months, wellness intentions will be energetically transmitted every few minutes to each participant’s home.

To March or Not to March: When Science Gets Political

| by Cheryl Shainmark

Data is data, science is objective, and the facts should speak for themselves, right? The answer is… complicated. The choice of what to study can be very subjective, constrained by preconceived ideas, and driven by special interest groups, or funding, (often the same thing). Data has always been open to interpretation, and – even before Kellyanne Conway coined the phrase – “the facts” were sometimes ignored in favor of “alternative facts.” But what’s scaring some scientists now is the anti-science, climate change denying stance of the Trump administration, and the fact that data is disappearing.

Dr. William Tiller – Where Science Meets Spirit

Dr. William A. Tiller is one of the world’s leading scientists on the structure of matter. Fellow to the American Academy for the Advancement of Science, Professor Emeritus William A. Tiller, of Stanford University’s Department of Materials Science, spent 34 years in academia after 9 years as an advisory physicist with the Westinghouse Research Laboratories. He has published over 250 conventional scientific papers, 3 books and several patents. In parallel, for over 30 years, he has been avocationally pursuing serious experimental and theoretical study of the field of psychoenergetics which will very likely become an integral part of “tomorrow’s” physics.

The Science Is In: Meditation Affects Aging and Telomere Length

Science is all about precision, controlled studies, and measurable, repeatable results. So for years researchers resisted working on alternative practices such as meditation, dismissing the few studies done as “fuzzy science,” “subjective,” or “impossible to duplicate.” But as research methods have advanced, so has the accuracy of the latest research. There is ample evidence now that stress leads to increased risk of health problems and that meditation reduces stress. What’s new are the studies showing how stress is related to aging and telomere length.
