Check Out Conscious.tv – An Incredible Resource

One of the best aspects of my work here at Merlian News is introducing people to the news, food, products, cutting edge science, and leading minds that can help improve our lives and enhance our spiritual growth. Some of our readers dearly love the science we present, while others write in to say that they were most touched by the articles on spirituality or paranormal phenomena. This month I think I’ve found something for everybody in www.conscious.tv.

This wonderful resource is a UK based TV channel broadcasting on the Internet. Iain McNay and his wife, Renate, conduct the most amazing, thoughtful interviews with some of the leading minds in a variety of fields. As it says on their website: “Conscious.tv aims to stimulate debate, question, enquire, inform, enlighten, encourage and inspire people in the areas of Consciousness, Science, Non-Duality and Spirituality.”

I’ve been listening to Mr. McNay’s inteviews for several weeks now, and I still can’t speak highly enough about them. Interviews have featured Matthew Manning, Peter Russell, Andrew Harvey, and others. Iain McNay also moderated a group discussion on “Consciousness & Evolution”with Chris Parish, Dave Pendle and Patrick Bryson. Check out these and other great interviews online and, if you’re like me, you’ll still be thinking and talking about them hours later.

Remote Viewing: Perceiving Information Non-Locally

Remote viewing (RV) is the practice of seeking impressions about a distant or unseen target using subjective means, in particular, extra-sensory perception (ESP) or “sensing with mind”. While ancient texts and shamanic traditions have emphasized this ability for thousands of years, it is only in the last century that modern science began to take it seriously. Since the 1970’s researchers such as Russell Targ (video) have published data that corroborates perceiving information in non-local ways. In the 1990’s it was popularized with books about US military experiments called “The Stargate Project.”

Set Your Sails to Fulfill Your True Mission by Serina Aramaki

In Buddhism, the term “Buddha-nature” describes the concept that human beings are created by God and that we have the same nature as God, or Buddha, within us.
