How Energy Medicine Works

How Energy Medicine Works - Gregg Braden passionately explains how Energy is Medicine in his "Language of the Divine Matrix" lecture.
See Video Clip of Healing Bladder Cancer - and at the 5 minute mark of Gregg Braden's lecture at See how practitioners in the background, working on one of hundreds of clients/patients at China's (and the world's) largest "medicine-less" Qi Gong hospital are healed. This retreat was founded by Dr. and Grandmaster Pang Ming where he used and taught what is considered a very effective form of Qi Gong as it uses Mind-Intention. This Western trained medical doctor derived this unique healing energy form many ancient forms of qigong to produce a safe, easy, highly efficient and effective method of medical qigong for chronic illness that he called Chi Lel. Master Pang Ming has since "retired" as a 2001 law in China forbade more than 50 people to congregate (shades of Falun Gong persecution). in China with ChiLel (at 1:40 min mark).


Near Death Experiences - a path less travelled

Here follows a few locations for more insights:

Near Death Experiences that have made it into the News:
Doctor offers reason for near-death experience: "As the body fails, consciousness "leaks out" of the body and becomes part of the "quantum void," he said. In that state, consciousness can exist "for a time."


Altered States of Consciousness

Altered States of Consciousness & Ayahuasca - an interview of Graham Hancock... much wisdom and clear thinking here, with the exhuberant interviewer Lilou Mace. We can all learn so much from Graham Hancock's perceptions and logic whether you agree with his outlook or not.


Two Distinct Forms of Prayer

Prayer Research - goal, non-goal, positive, negative, non-local, collecting hard data with the help of yeast cells... - Bill Sweet detailed how his research has indicated that there are two distinct forms of prayer and that he has found so far that one is far more powerful than the other. The first type is "goal-directed prayer," which occurs when a person prays for a specific outcome. Contrasting this, he said, is "non goal-directed prayer," where the intended result is simply "what is best for the situation." According to Sweet so far, this second type of prayer sees stronger effects because it instills order into a situation rather than attempting to manipulate the outcome. He contended that "non goal-directing prayer actually sends mending effects out" and cause the situation to come to an ideal conclusion. When praying without an intended outcome, he observed, "it's the unexpected that you can expect."


Master Hiroshi Doi’s on Reiki

Hiroshi Doi’s interview in the Reiki News Magazine, March 2014
Here is an insightful interview by William Rand with Hiroshi Doi which was published in the Reiki News Magazine and republished at the International House of Reiki's website. Hiroshi Doi tells us how he sees that Usui-san didn’t have a standard curriculum for his teachings - each training was dependant on the spiritual progress of each student and actual lectures were given on a one-on-one basis.


Changing Your Body with Your Mind

Do our Minds Change our Bodies? TEDTalk by Amy Cuddy
Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Can we fake it till we make? Or better still - fake it till we BECOME it? Social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how "power posing" -- standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don't feel confident -- can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain and might even have an impact on our chances for success.
