The Great Mysteries: Believing, Knowing, & Proving

Growing up, I never thought twice about whether there was an afterlife, or if it was possible to see into the past or the future, or how one could see things and events at a remote distance. My mother was a psychic, as was her mother and her mother’s mother before her. I knew as a child that I had inherited the “second sight.” These things were an everyday experience in my family; I was aware of ghosts, had well documented prophetic dreams, and learned to remotely view people and places at a distance. As a result, when people asked me whether I believed in things such as life after death, the paranormal, distance healing, or the mind’s ability to affect matter, I would tell them, “I don’t believe it, I know it.”

It was only later that I started to wonder about the source of these phenomena, or to look for explanations. I knew that we were all capable of doing the things my family did and I began teaching classes in psychic development. It was in an effort to answer some of my student’s questions that I started reading the research from leading scientists, physicists, and medical doctors. I became familiar with the work of William A. Tiller , Russell Targ, Peter Russell, Robert Moss, Lynne McTaggart, and others. I learned that much of what I had experienced throughout my life could be explained or replicated, and that there existed controlled studies with measurable results. Finally, for every person who asked me, “Where’s your proof?” I could now point to robust research.

In my quest for answers, a few years ago I read Entangled Minds by Dean Radin , and then was fortunate enough to interview the author. Dr. Radin told me about new, marvelous studies being done, and about the organization IONS (Institute of Noetic Science) . Just recently I found out that he has taken another great step to advance the cause — it turns out that he, too, has been plagued by people asking him, “Where’s the proof?” often enough that he has compiled a list of the latest research.Topics covered include distance healing, intention experiments, telepathy and ESP, mediumship, precognition and more.

I believe that whether you are a believer, a knower, or a doubter you will find this list remarkable reading. Still, if I have learned anything over the years it is that “proof”can be a funny thing and that the real naysayers will refuse to believe no matter what they read or see. At the same time, since I and countless others are already having these experiences, it gives me great satisfaction to know there is scientific proof.

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.

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

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.
