Walking Meditation

When it comes to meditation most people think of a seated meditation in a quiet secluded spot. Well for most of us that is difficult to achieve. At best we may be able to find a few minutes a day where we can be alone and hope to not be disturbed while we try to meditate.
What if we could meditate while we were going about our daily activities? That would be an incredible way to spend some of our more mundane moments doing our daily chores.

One way we can meditate is while walking. Not only in a park or a forest but in a city also. This takes a little practice but the rewards are plenty. If nothing else you are learning to tune into your environment and can learn to fully enjoy your surroundings. Each moment can be a profound experience when we learn to be more aware and more conscious.

Enhance Your Sixth Sense And Awareness

Here is a technique you can use to enhance your sixth sense and awareness by practicing assimilation and scanning.
Let me ask you, can you sense what the distance between you and a wall feels like 6 feet away? Yes, the distance itself has a certain spatial frequency that registers in your perception. What about 3 feet?
The shorter space feels different then 6 feet, right? What about 600 feet? That feels different too right? Well, those distances are all easily felt because we experience them daily. What about the feeling of 20,000 miles? What about 100 light-years? Most people will “consider” the distance, and give it a quick “wow, that’s far”.. Not good enough. You must assimilate it in the same way you can remember how 3 feet feels. Make sense? Holding your awareness in that mode will shift you in very unique ways.
What you want to do is, let yourself go into non-thought and instead of logicalizing or conceptualizing immensity, *feel* it. Maintain a meditative state, no babbling. Use this exercise to trigger dormancies or neural net pathways in your brain to get more knowing of the bigger picture going on. Try to become conscious of “spatiality”.

Second are these illustrations below. Remember; take your time with this. Don’t race your perception or jump to conceptual dismissal to early, that’s all rationalizing which you don’t want to do prematurely. Let yourself really unwind and start absorbing the size. It’s actually quiet pleasurable.

Earth

Remember, we are essentially microscopic cellular organisms in that blue globe.

Jupiter

Other components of an even larger macrocosm of life.

Sun
Tomorrow, when you see the sun, instead of considering it like you normally do, let yourself take in the fact that it is a Star, and feel the distance between you and it. And because it is one of zillions of others, and is much closer to us than the rest of them, consider the space between it and the stars behind it. Take in the feeling of that distance. Really feel it.


It continues on…

And on…and can become quite dizzying. Ask yourself, why would you become dizzy unless you are having a physical reaction within your nervous system simply by letting yourself feel the spatiality?

There’s a secret right there. The point is, the universe is an absolutely amazing organism, and what you are reflecting on is the body of God, which only a few actually reflect on beyond a few minutes, or beyond looking out at the 2d flat night sky with pin pricks of light in it. to go beyond that usually strains the mind and requires effort. And I assure you the effort is worth it.
And to think, just 500 years ago (?) we used to think the universe orbited around us!

Scientists Discover Their Sixth Sense

Psychic powers and extra-sensory perception (ESP) are among the most important unexplained phenomena today because belief in them is so prevalent. Scientists have examined people who claim to have psychic powers, but results under controlled laboratory conditions have until now remained unclear. In the meantime, countless UFO advocates wait for a coming “disclosure” of flying saucer evidence from world governments –– not simply to confirm that we are not alone in the universe, but to also bring in “alien technology” that may help us to use our minds and bodies to their full potential. A recent Newsweek magazine feature article candidly reported:

For if you have never had a paranormal experience such as these, and believe in none of the things that science says do not exist except as tricks played on the gullible or—as neuroscientists are now beginning to see—by the normal workings of the mind carried to an extreme, well, then you are in a lonely minority. According to periodic surveys by Gallup and other pollsters, fully 90 percent of Americans say they have experienced such things or believe they exist.

“If you take the word ‘normal’ as characteristic of the norm or majority, then it is the superstitious and those who believe in ESP, ghosts and psychic phenomena who are normal.” Most scientists and skeptics argue, “Belief in anything for which there is no empirical evidence is a sign of mental pathology and not normalcy.” But can skeptics really classify 90 percent of a nation’s entire population as schizophrenics without appearing to be patently anti-democratic or irrational themselves? Less than 10 percent of the U.S. population is firmly skeptical. Most of the cynical observers are in some way connected to large university grants and to the powerful military-industrial complex that President Dwight Eisenhower warned us about in his 1961 farewell speech: “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex.”

Eminent skeptics are often associated with producing scientific weaponry or technical and biological systems for greedy economies based on perpetual conflicts. At one time or another, almost every great modern physicist has imagined becoming the next “father of the bomb.” This tiny group of skeptics has no real concern for the value of life or the human spirit, yet it manipulates enough control over the media and the financial markets of the world to present itself as the normal mentality or “standard” of intellect. “One such compensation, it is fair to say, is a feeling of intellectual superiority. It is rewarding to look at the vast hordes of believers, conclude that they are idiots and delight in the fact that you aren’t.” But ironically, among the bigheaded achievements of this small elitist group of scientific skeptics are global warming and economic meltdown –– massive failures in very plain terms.

Some 40 percent of Americans believe it’s possible that aliens have abducted some of us, polls show, compared with 25 percent in the 1980s.

Faced with such daunting rising numbers, the skeptics have shifted their debunking strategies. They can no longer go on accusing “believers everywhere” of being mentally challenged. For, there are simply too many of them to represent a statistical eccentricity. Instead, the skeptics’ new game plan is to label such intuitive ideas as “normal workings of the mind” taken to a maximum value. They’re being nice about it nowadays, or more politically correct. But in that willowy gap, we can also catch a glimpse of some amazing discoveries that were cautiously kept out of the mainstream media until now. For example, the belief that animals have a sixth sense for danger is an ancient one. That theory is likely to gain acceptance as a result of what happened during the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami:

Wild animals seem to have escaped the Indian Ocean tsunami, adding weight to notions they possess a “sixth sense” for disasters, experts said. Sri Lankan wildlife officials have said the giant waves that killed over 24,000 people along the Indian Ocean island’s coast seemingly missed wild beasts, with no dead animals found.

“No elephants are dead, not even a dead hare or rabbit. I think animals can sense disaster. They have a sixth sense. They know when things are happening,” H.D. Ratnayake, deputy director of Sri Lanka’s Wildlife Department, said.

It was recently discovered that the same genes that give sharks their sixth sense and allow them to detect electrical signals are also responsible for the development of head and facial features in humans, according to a new study from the University of Louisiana. “The finding supports the idea that the early sea creatures that eventually evolved into humans could also sense electricity before they emerged onto land.”

Sharks have a network of special cells that can detect electricity, called electroreceptors, in their heads. They use them for hunting and navigation. This sense is so developed that sharks can find fish hiding under sand by honing in on the weak electrical signals emitted by their twitching muscles.

Since 2001, Eric Stroud and Michael Herrmann have been working on a chemical shark repellent. According to Herrmann, he and Stroud were playing around with powerful rare-earth magnets in 2005, when he dropped one next to their shark research tank in Oak Ridge, New Jersey. The lemon and nurse sharks inside instantly darted to the opposite wall. “In testing at the Bimini Biological Research Station shark lab in the Bahamas, Stroud and Herrmann found that sharks dramatically avoid magnets made from neodymium, iron and boron. The magnets even rouse sharks from tonic immobility, a coma-like state induced by turning them upside down.”

Biologist Rupert Sheldrake, author of “Dogs That Know When Their Owner is Coming Home,” believes that animals have perceptive abilities of telepathy and premonitions. Veterinarian and author Dr. Allan Schoen says in his book, “Kindred Spirits,” that people and animals are intimately connected. Pets whom we feel especially close to seem to understand our needs, read our moods, and even communicate with us on a level that transcends words or body language.

Physician and author Dr. Larry Dossey says there is a connection between all species, which is not limited by locality. He refers to it as a “nonlocal mind.” Consciousness is not restricted to the brain or the body, or time or place. Therefore, people and animals can have an effect on each other, even when miles apart.

Can pets be so linked and in step with their owners when they are far apart, even when there is no possible way they could be using their sense of smell or hearing? An awareness of death is certainly not restricted to humans. The huge attention generated by the case of the intuitive American cat, “Oscar,” points to the interest psychic pet behavior holds:

Oscar lives in a nursing home and has an uncanny ability to sense when a resident is about to die. When a patient is near death, Oscar nearly always appears and hops on the bed. The staff have come to recognize and respect Oscar’s instincts, and send for the relatives of any patient he has chosen to curl up beside. But they have no explanation for it. Oscar shows no interest in patients who are simply in poor shape, or who still have a few days to live.

Oscar, a hospice cat has an uncanny knack for predicting when nursing home patients are going to die. One theory says a cat’s acute sensitivity to smell might enable it to detect some subtle change in metabolism around the time of death, but no one has been able to explain why any moggy should show an interest in the approach of the Grim Reaper.

Have you ever noticed that herds of grazing animals all face the same way? Images from “Google Earth” have confirmed that cattle tend to align their bodies in a north-south direction. Wild deer also display this behavior –– a phenomenon that has apparently gone unnoticed by herdsmen and hunters for thousands of years. In the Proceedings for the National Academy of Sciences, scientists said the Earth’s magnetic fields may influence the behavior of these animals. The Earth can be viewed as a huge magnet, with magnetic north and south situated close to the geographical poles. Many species –– including birds and salmon –– are known to use the Earth’s magnetic fields in migration, rather like a natural GPS. A few studies have shown that some mammals –– including bats –– also use a “magnetic compass” to help their sense of direction.

Dr Sabine Begall, from the University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany, and colleagues surveyed Google Earth images of 8,510 grazing and resting cattle in 308 pasture plains across the globe. “Sometimes it took hours and hours to find some pictures with good resolution,” said Dr Begall. The scientists were unable to distinguish between the head and rear of the cattle, but could tell that the animals tended to face either north or south. The scientists noted that it’s amazing that “this ubiquitous phenomenon does not seem to have been noticed by herdsmen, ranchers, or hunters.”

Willy Miller –– a Scottish cattle farmer –– remarked: “I’ve never noticed that my cows all face the same way.”

Another German research team made the equally surprising discovery that magpies have a sense of self-recognition when looking in a mirror. Until now, this characteristic “human” capability has been seen clearly only in apes, though also, as the team noted, “at least suggestively in dolphins and elephants.” It also noted that the magpie findings “suggest that essential components of human self-recognition have evolved independently in different vertebrate classes with a separate evolutionary history.”

Discovery of a magnetic “sixth sense” in deer and cattle has a broad implication. Many life forms as diverse as birds and bacteria have it. They use it primarily for navigation.

But it is surprising to find it in pastoral cattle and foraging deer that do not appear to need such a navigational aid. The researchers said that the findings challenge neuroscientists and biophysicists to explain how this magnetic “sixth sense” works.

The human sixth sense has been, by far, the most ridiculed and debunked individual ability throughout all the ages. But now, a sixth sense is finally being discovered, revealed, and even revered by some modern scientists –– without much anathema –– as our natural “sense of balance.” An up to date New York Times, International Herald Tribune newspaper story plainly reported:

Essential to a fully embodied sense of self is the vestibular system, a paired set of tiny sensory organs tucked deep into the temporal bone on either side of the head, right near the cochlea of the inner ear. The vestibular system isn’t a high-profile, elitist sense like the famed five of vision, hearing, touch, taste and smell. It’s more of a Joe Sixth-Sense, laboring in anonymity and frequently misunderstood.

“Three of the organs are designed to detect twisting movements of the head, by sensing the discrepancy between the angular momentum of the membranes, which are attached to the bone, and that of the free-floating fluid, which lags slightly behind. The other two organs have tiny stones of calcium carbonate, which rise and fall like flakes in a snowglobe and so detect the effects of gravity and of linear head motions, if you’re walking forward, for example, or up stairs.”

Despite its meek status, the vestibular system has lately won fans among neuroscientists, who marvel at its sophistication and sensitivity, and how it tells us where we are and what we’re doing. It is not only crucial for perceptual stability, but it is also required to produce neural representations of the environment in order to accurately guide our behavior. Loss of function can produce an imbalance, which manifests as a dramatic, sudden onset of vertigo. “They praise the machine-tool precision of its parts, the way the vestibular system discovered the laws of Newtonian mechanics some 400 million years before Newton and then put those principles to use to provision the head with little organic gyroscopes and linear accelerometers.”

As evidence of the organ’s rising prestige, the first edition of the highly regarded U.S. college textbook “Sensation and Perception” (Sinauer, 2005) barely mentioned the vestibular system, but in the new edition that appeared in 2008, a standalone chapter on the subject closes the book. “I don’t want to sound ungrateful,” said Daniel Merfeld, director of the vestibular physiology lab at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary and associate professor at Harvard Medical School, who wrote the chapter. “I’m just glad to be included now.”

But if “balance” is indeed our sixth sense, what’s so psychic about it? In 1991, Martin Lenhardt of the University of Virginia discovered that people could hear ultrasonic speech, using the vestibular system as a hearing organ. Ultrasound is sound with a frequency greater than the upper limit of human hearing. In other words, a new technology bypasses the normal audio mechanisms used by the body to hear sounds and provides a direct neural stimulation to the brain.

So outlandish is the concept that humans can have the hearing range of specialized mammals, such as bats and toothed whales, that ultrasonic hearing has generally been relegated to the realm of parlor tricks rather than being considered the subject of scientific inquiry.

The mental experience of “hearing voices” could consequently prove to be more than just hallucinations. The validity of ultrasonic hearing has already been clearly demonstrated by “playing opera” to a deaf subject. In one of the earliest reports, the experimental work of Dr. Roger Maass performed in 1946 was cited. “Maass, never credited again for his original discovery, made all the essential observations in regard to ultrasonic hearing phenomenology.” In 1962, Pat Flanagan was the subject of a Life magazine profile that described the teenage inventor as a “unique, mature and inquisitive scientist.”

At 15, Flanagan had already begun to demonstrate the invention that would change his life: the neurophone. Built in his home laboratory from wire and brillo pads, the device transmitted audio signals from a stereo directly into the brain, bypassing the ears entirely. Although he knew that the sound was somehow being picked up by the wearer’s skin and bone, the exact mechanism would evade the inventor for 33 years.

Martin Lenhardt finally recreated Flanagan’s findings in 1991 using ultrasonic signals. He discovered that the saccule, a pea-sized organ in the inner ear usually associated with balance, is also sensitive to ultrasonic sound, at last explaining how Flanagan’s invention worked. But there’s even more to the sixth sense than meets the eye. Some researchers now equate it with stress, relaxation, and various psychic abilities.

In 1975, Dr. Herbert Benson, argued in “The Relaxation Response” that prayer and meditation can play a significant role in reducing stress and hypertension. We now know that the vestibular system plays a critical role in stabilizing the visual axis (gaze) and maintaining head and body posture during meditation. The thought of having a third eye or being sealed in the forehead is a familiar religious idea, sometimes associated with neurons in the thalamus, amygdala, and cortex of the brain. But it is essentially the vestibular system of the inner ear that allows us to “balance” the two hemispheres of our brain and in due course trigger the relaxation response. “Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.”(Matthew 13:9). Dysfunctions in the vestibular system can cause stress, anxiety, panic attacks, nausea, and motion sickness. It is a well known fact that prayer and meditation can produce a “trance” or altered state of consciousness related to curative powers, religious ecstasy, and increased visual imagery –– leading to relaxation and tranquillity.

Yet, it is a common oversight of modern western society to assume that trance or altered states of consciousness depend exclusively on the characteristics of primitive culture. Just about every adult in the world experiences a trance in the form of sexual orgasm. But some psychologists have not yet overcome the taboo of repression to openly describe the human orgasm as an authentic trance state. As a result of today’s gross commercialization of sex, many people go through their adult existence creating an “unbalanced” trance response. Rather than aesthetic or emotional feelings, they are conditioned by boorish media and gluttonous peer pressure to put up with offensive vulgarity, tending to deprave and corrupt, which only increases the body’s stress response. By harmonizing the brain’s hemispheres, prayer and meditation can stimulate the vestibular system to create a healthy, balanced trance state. Hundreds of studies have been published over the past three decades on the potential health effects of prayer and meditation. Dr. Vernon Barnes, a research scientist in pediatrics found that men and women who meditate are 30 percent less likely to die of cardiovascular disease over the next eight years compared to their peers. Their risk of dying from any cause was 23 percent lower.

Barnes pointed to recent studies that have found a number of effects that could protect against heart disease and stroke; besides lowering blood pressure, meditation may reduce cholesterol, improve the functioning of blood vessel walls, and possibly reduce atherosclerosis — the buildup of plaques in the arteries that can lead to heart attack and stroke.

Dr. Robert H. Schneider of Fairfield, Iowa, says the findings, coupled with previous studies, “give strong evidence” that meditation is a heart-healthy habit. Meditation works better than other practices like muscle relaxation, he asserts, because it may awaken the body’s innate ability to “self-repair.” Meditation, both Schneider and Barnes say, is physiologically different from resting or sleeping because practitioners become still mentally and physically, but remain awake and aware.

Dr Toby Collins, of the Oxford Centre for the Science of the Mind, told the BBC News website: “Meditation is a way of tapping into a process of manipulating brain activity.” He said the idea that meditation trained the brain to attend to just one thing at a time fitted in with previous research. He added: “How that’s done, we don’t yet know. But studies using fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) can show what’s happening in the brain.”

About 58 percent of Americans have tried prayer to relieve their pain, according to a joint study by ABC News, USA Today and Stanford University Medical Center. That’s about the same as the number of people who have taken prescription drugs for pain, the study reports. And of those who’ve tried prayer, half say it has worked very well for them in terms of pain relief, tying it with prescription drugs as the most effective pain reliever. The experience of pain is not purely physical, said Dr. Harold Koenig, co-director of Duke University’s Center for Spirituality, Theology and Health.

“There is a lot of anxiety associated with pain, there is depression associated with it, there is a loss of hope, there is alienation and loneliness, there is anger associated with pain,” Koenig said. “Religion helps with all of those factors that ultimately magnify the pain and bring it into such great focus for those who experience pain.”

While detractors may argue that prayer functions as a placebo, Dr. William Brose believes otherwise:

“I think there are probably a lot of nonspecific effects that happen with prayer. Some of them may be characterized as a placebo, some of them may be related to relaxation, but I also believe there is a significant spiritual piece that we just simply don’t understand,” he said. “But the absence of proof isn’t the proof of absence. People have faith because they believe in something even when there is no proof.”

The National Institutes of Health appointed a team of doctors, including Dr. Lynda Powell, to analyze nearly 250 secular-based studies connecting religion and health. Researchers found people who attend religious services weekly, if not more, have a lower rate of mortality by nearly 25 percent. That is, they live longer. But is God the reason worshipers may be living longer? Powell says it could be simpler than that.

“People who are stressed tend to struggle. Struggle triggers stress hormones and that, in effect, shortens their lives,” reports Powell. “People who go to church or religious services regularly are more effective at coping with stress.”

More effective, she says, perhaps because they take what they learn – prayer or meditation – and use it in their everyday lives. This appears to stave off stress hormones and promote more beneficial ones.

Nowhere has that idea received a more intriguing going-over than in the recently published book “The God Gene: How Faith Is Hardwired into Our Genes,” by molecular biologist Dean Hamer. Chief of gene structure at the U.S. National Cancer Institute, Hamer not only claims that human spirituality is an adaptive trait, but he also says he has located one of the genes responsible, a gene that just happens to also code for production of the neurotransmitters that regulate our moods. Other researchers have taken the science in a different direction, looking not for the genes that code for spirituality but for how that spirituality plays out in the brain. Neuroscientist Andrew Newberg of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine has used several types of imaging systems to watch the brains of subjects as they meditate or pray. By measuring blood flow, he determines which regions are responsible for the feelings the volunteers experience. The deeper that people descend into meditation or prayer, Newberg found, the more active the frontal lobe and the limbic system become.

The frontal lobe is the seat of concentration and attention; the limbic system is where powerful feelings, including rapture, are processed. More revealing is the fact that at the same time these regions flash to life, another important region—the parietal lobe at the back of the brain—goes dim. It’s this lobe that orients the individual in time and space. Take it off-line, and the boundaries of the self fall away, creating the feeling of being at one with the universe. Combine that with what’s going on in the other two lobes, and you can put together a profound religious experience.

“Far from being an evolutionary luxury then, the need for God may be a crucial trait stamped deeper and deeper into our genome with every passing generation.” The relationship between psychics and the powerful has always been close. In the Bible, Joseph found favor with Pharaoh by uncannily interpreting the Egyptian leader’s dreams. Centuries later, the supposed forecasting abilities of Nostradamus and the “mad monk” Rasputin endeared both men to the upper classes. In America, according to Catherine Albanese, a historian at the University of California, Santa Barbara, belief in metaphysical powers dates back to the country’s founding and shows “every sign of flourishing into any future that can be foreseen.” That’s especially true during times of great change or distress—war and recession—when people are looking to make sense of the uncertainty, Albanese says. Surveys show that two out of three Americans believe in the value of psychic insight, according to Michael Shermer, author of “Why People Believe Weird Things.”

Perhaps the greatest link between the sixth sense and the vestibular system of the inner ear lies in the schema of string theory. No experiment has yet directly detected the Higgs boson, which supposedly gives mass to all particles. In physics, the “graviton” is a hypothetical elementary particle that mediates the force of gravity in the framework of quantum field theory. Experiments to detect gravitational waves might provide information about certain properties of the graviton. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN came on line in 2008. But since we already know that the inner ear responds to linear accelerations of motion, including the constant influence of gravity, perhaps the existence of the graviton will be confirmed or rejected by studying the “gravity receptors” of the vestibular system. If all this sounds a bit like alien technology to you, don’t forget that our small elitist group of scientific skeptics is being rather nice about how it discredits its spirit rivals nowadays. Do they perchance have a clandestine motive? You bet. A recent report by the U.S. Department of Defense plainly describes the new areas of focus.

Mind reading: The development of psychological models and neurological imaging has made it possible to see what people are thinking and whether they’re lying. The science is, however, still in its infancy: Challenges remain in accounting for variations between individual brains, and the tendency of our brains to change over time.

One important application is lie detection — though one hopes that the lesson of traditional lie detectors, predicated on the now-disproven idea that the physiological basis of lying can be separated from processes such as anxiety, has been learned. Mind readers could be used to interrogate captured enemies, as well as “terrorist suspects” passing through customs. But does this mean, for example, that travelers placed on the bloated, mistake-laden watch list would have their minds scanned, just as their computers will be? The report notes that “In situations where it is important to win the hearts and minds of the local populace, it would be useful to know if they understand the information being given them.”

Sixth Sense Challenge

Sixth Sense Challenge

Have you ever felt someone was staring at you only to turn around and find that you were correct?

The British Journal of Psychology published a paper by researchers at Freiburg University which found that people could tell when they are being stared at. What sense are we using when we can physically feel someone looking at us? Sight or hearing? Touch, taste or smell?

None of our common five senses can tell us that.

Is the sixth sense the key to inner balance on every level of the human psyche? Can it be that we have forgotten a piece of ourselves through evolution that makes us complete? Is it the tool we will use to connect our brain to our mind?

It’s time to put your sixth sense to the test and try some of these fun experiments to see if you can begin to activate your sixth sense… and how strong you can get it.

First, a word about the programs…

There are many online “psychic” or “sixth sense” games and tests on the internet. Most are either so poorly programmed as to rely purely on random number generators, meaning you can never truly effect the outcome, or are meant for entertainment and marketing purposes.

We don’t recommend 99% of anything out there, simply for those reasons. They do not verify or enable exploration of the truth. That’s what we want. Hopefully, our purpose is pretty clear. We want to give you a crash course in shifting your consciousness and increasing your awareness. If you want more once we’re done, we have the most profound system available.

Right now, it’s not about that. It’s about giving you tools you can sink your teeth into that aren’t bubble gum nonsense.

The site you are going to isn’t affiliated with us in any way. It’s part of an early university experiment into whether or not retropsychokensis abilities exist. You can read about the background of the experiment, and how it works, on the site itself.

Basically, it doesn’t use a computer to create random generated numbers, rather it is created by decaying radioactive material. It’s complicated but an interesting read – if you’re so inclined.

If you aren’t… well, jump right into the games and just know that this is the best, most legitimate and valid system we’ve found in playing with the sixth sense on the Internet. If you can consistently alter the results of these games… you are doing the real thing!

Good luck and have fun!

Shadow People, Ghosts, Aliens or Inter Dimensional Beings

Did you see that dark, fleeting shape out of the corner of your eye? Perhaps you caught a glimpse of a strange entity that is being seen with greater regularity around the world. “What was that?” You were sitting comfortably on your sofa reading the latest issue of Fortean Times in the dim light when movement across the room caught your attention. It seemed dark and shadowy, but there was nothing there. You returned to your reading – and a moment later there it was again. You looked up quickly this time and saw the fleeting but distinctly human shape of the shadow pass quickly over the far wall… and disappear.

Shadow Being

Shadow Being

What was that? Some natural shadow? Your heightened imagination? A ghost? Or was it something that seems to be a spreading phenomenon – apparitions that are coming to be known as “shadow people” or “shadow beings.” Perhaps this is an old phenomenon with a new name that is now being discussed more openly, in part thanks to the Internet. Or maybe it’s a phenomenon that, for some reason, is manifesting with greater frequency and intensity now.

Those who are experiencing and studying the shadow people phenomenon say that these entities almost always used to be seen out of the corner of the eye and very briefly. But more and more, people are beginning to see them straight on and for longer periods of time. Some experiencers testify that they have even seen eyes, usually red, on these shadow beings.

The mysterious sightings have become a hot topic of conversation in paranormal chat rooms, message boards and websites, and it was given widespread attention on The Art Bell talk radio show. Art’s listeners even submitted their drawings of how they perceived these beings, and they can be seen in a haunting gallery on Art’s site.

What are shadow people and where do they come from? Several theories have been offered.

The Imagination
The explanation we get from skeptics and mainstream science – and who are usually people who have never experienced the shadow people phenomenon – is that it is nothing more than the active human imagination. It’s our minds playing tricks on us… our eyes seeing things in a fraction of a second that aren’t really there – illusions… real shadows caused by passing auto headlights, or some similar explanation. And without a doubt, these explanations probably can account for some if not many experiences. The human eye and mind are easily fooled. But can they account for all cases?

Ghosts
To call these entities ghosts demands first a definition of what we mean by ghosts. (See the article: “Ghosts: What Are They?”) But by almost any definition, shadow people are somewhat different than ghost phenomena. Whereas ghost apparitions are almost always a misty white, vaporish or have a decidedly human form and appearance (very often with discernable “clothing”), shadow beings are much darker and more shadow-like. In general, although the shadow people often do have a human outline or shape, because they are dark, the details of their appearance is lacking. This is in contrast to many ghost sightings in which the witness can describe the ghost’s facial features, style of clothing and other details. The one detail most often noted in some shadow being sightings are their glowing red eyes.

Demons or Other Spirit Entities
The dark countenance and malevolent feelings that are often reported in association with these creatures has led some researchers to speculate that they may be demonic in nature. If they are demons, we have to wonder what their purpose or intent is in letting themselves be seen in this manner. Is it merely to frighten?

Astral Bodies
One interesting idea suggests that shadow people are the shadows or essences of people who are having out-of-body experiences. According to Jerry Gross, an author, lecturer and teacher about astral travel, we all travel out of the body when we are asleep. Perhaps, this theory says, we are seeing the ephemeral astral bodies of these twilight travelers.

Time Travelers
People from our own future, another idea states, could have found the means to travel to the past – our time. However they are able to accomplish this incredible feat, perhaps in that state they appear to us merely as passing shadows as they observe the events of our timeline.

Inter dimensional Beings
Even mainstream science is fairly convinced that there are dimensions other than the three we inhabit. And if these other dimensions exist, who or what (if anything) inhabits them? Some theorists say that these dimensions exist parallel and very close to our own, although invisible to us. And if there are inhabitants in these other dimensions, it is possible that they have found a way to intrude on our dimension and become, at least partially, visible? If so, they could very well appear as shadows. It has long been held by psychics and other sensitives that beings on other planes of existence are of different “vibrations.” Science is beginning to look at reality, on a quantum level, in the same way – that particles of the smallest size exist as vibrations. Perhaps, some theorize, the vibrations of our existence are beginning to mesh with those of another dimension, which accounts for the increase in such phenomena as ghosts, shadow people and possibly aliens.

Aliens
The alien and abduction phenomena are so bizarre that it’s no surprise that extraterrestrials are suspects as the shadow people.  Abductees have reported in many cases that the alien grays seem to be able to pass through walls and closed windows, and to appear and disappear abruptly, among other otherworldly talents. Perhaps, too, they can go about their alien agenda disguised in the shadows.

There’s a good deal of overlapping among the above ideas, of course. Aliens and ghosts could be inter dimensional beings, or aliens could be time travelers – and some believe demons are responsible for all of these disturbing phenomena.

There is no way to prove or disprove any theories about a phenomenon that is so mysterious, that happens so quickly and without warning. Science finds it virtually impossible to catalog or study such phenomena in any methodical way. All we can do, at present, is to document personal experiences and try to piece together what the shadow people phenomenon might be. Perhaps it’s an old mystery becoming more recognizable… perhaps it represents a doorway to and from different planes of existence… or perhaps it’s just shadows.

Handbook Of The Navigator Warning

The information you are about to reveal to yourself should be considered very serious in nature. It will systematically challenge you mentally, emotionally and at times even physically fatigue you. The Higher Balance material is considered one of the most powerful metaphysical and spiritual teachings accessible to mankind. Please proceed with caution, reflect within yourself and determine if you are truly ready for such progress.

If you continue, No doubt you will have reservations believing these statements and assume it is a marketing ploy, you would be somewhat correct in both assumptions, although none the less everything here stated is the truth.

If you are a mere curiosity seeker then stop here for this knowledge is not for you. This material is reaching out to persons, who are searching out a hidden knowledge, have felt a calling within their being their entire life. Have already researched and study numerous religions, philosophies, paranormal, metaphysical and meditation systems and determined them not adequate for what their needs warrant.

They feel an infinity with the Universe that is unshakable. Even words attempting to describe the passion they feel shadow its truest meaning. “The Force, God or The One” are words barely capable of holding their most inner thoughts. They seek not religion, but truth and purpose.

Again I give you this warning. Simply reflecting on the material will shape and change your destiny, do not read forward if you desire to remain in the place that you are now.

In one full moment of reflection regarding the knowledge I propose you will no longer be able to return to the person you are but rather you will begin to become the person you have always desired to be.

Assuming you have decided to move forward with the material you should be prepared and understand that the knowledge will reach into your deeper memories and awaken them. Ancient memories will slowly surface and wrestles with the things you have come to believe. Over time and deep reflection, only then you will see that there are fantastical energies and living consciousness all around you and you will understand that they are accessible to those who can fully understand them.

The first place to begin on your journey is “The Hand Book of the Navigator” This is no ordinary book, and it will not only give you great and wondrous incites but it will lead you to the tools and techniques that will free you from an invisible and unknowable chain that has bound to you in this world. It will lift the veil from that which is hidden from you. Once you have this sight, you will never see things the same way again and you will have truly begun to empower yourself.

I say once more. Be warned, for you cannot un-know what which you have learned.

This knowledge is alive and it is evasive. Withdrawing from those that should not hold it within their mind. It belongs to only a few and it constantly seeks them out to be united.

You are about to learn sacred knowledge that has remained hidden for centuries by monks and mystics throughout the ages. Secrets that many of this realm would prefer to have stayed hidden. Once you understand the nature of the veil and move it to one side the wonders of other worlds will become known to you. How much you will learn and experience will depend on how much your true mind can carry.

Some advice, The slower you read the faster you will move. Contemplate, reflect and internalize the truths it reveals for each is a piece to whole that makes a larger piece. Do not assume anything for assumption can be blinding.

Some may fear that the knowledge, the secrets contained in this book may fall in the wrong hands. Fear not as I have said already it is alive and dances to distraction for the mind that does not belong cannot cradle such things, it simply will spill over.

If these words find themselves to you look within and ask “Am I ready for a journey?” If you hear yes, then step forward with the feet of your mind and look high and far for you leave this world never to see it the same way again once you return. If you hear no then rest this book to the side so another seeker my find it.

The stronger your quest, the greater the defiant will arise in your life and discourage you from setting out upon your journey. I ask you now, how many times have you desired for your awakening, how many times have you let it be taken from your hands freely without a fight?

Trust your own navigator to discern this truth and listen not to the bitter and arrogant who would miss direct you on your path. Listen to your navigator and it will set you free.

Once it is alive within you, seek out the rest of the garden so that your seeds my flourish and grow to feed the navigators that follow behind you.

Help…. Gaia Won’t Let Me Grow

Over the last 25 years, thousands of self help books and programs have flooded the marketplace. Millions of people all over the world have invested in these programs in order to bring about some type of change in their life. Yet strangely, most people never do change. No matter how much they hear or read or try, nothing seems to change. The question is why?

Gaia Mother Earth

Gaia Mother Earth

You have the entire weight of the Gaia consciousness telling you how to act as an organism within the planet. In the same way that you are the god consciousness of your entire body and have a plan for all the cells in your body, so too does the planet have a consciousness that sets the tone for all the organisms within it. Like a computer program it is constantly telling you what to do and how to be. This is why the majority of people are the same kind of person. There isn’t a lot of diversity in behavior, opinions, etc. Standing out is seen as rocking the boat, so the consciousness of Gaia pushes you to stay in line.

Now this doesn’t mean that it tells you what foods to eat or if you should be a democrat or not. What it is really telling you is to be concerned with trivial things and stick to the program. Be born, grow up, make babies and die. That is the basic program for all beings on this planet. When you die all of your experiences are released, like rain drops into a bucket, into the Gaia consciousness. When this happens, they cease to exist as independent beings. They become recordings of who they were in their lives and are stored as part of the collective consciousness or Akashic Record. The only way to avoid this fate is create a soul and become something more than what you are.

The planet does not want you to become a spiritual being. It need the experiences of beings to develop and grow. If you forge a soul and gain the capability of changing the program, moving outside of it or even leaving Gaia in a future incarnation you have glitched the program in a way. Now, because the weight of the Gaia consciousness is so great, only the strongest and the most dedicated can ever break free from this hold. There is no danger in everyone forming souls and ruining the system. Only the very best, the most diligent can make it.

The second reason that change is so hard is because behavior has a physical component that must also be changed. When you were a baby you had no coordination in your body. You had to learn to use your arms and legs. Every time you did a particular movement, a neural pathway was created and subsequently strengthened in your brain by each repetition. Once you ingrain this movement deeply enough, you cannot forget it. It is now a permanent physical structure in your brain. It has been hardwired.

If you learned to the play the piano and did not have your bad habits corrected as you were learning them, those bad habits become ingrained in your brain. The only way to correct those habits is to retrain the brain by building new pathways to do it correctly. The older we are, the more difficult this is to accomplish. But what it is important to note is that it takes thousands of repetitions ingrain a movement and it is even more difficult to over write an old pathway with a new one.

Now, if you look at your behavior patterns you will see that in the same way that you learned to extend your fingers as a child, you also learned to react to different behavioral stimuli. You didn’t want to do your homework or take out the trash. You build a neural pathway called procrastinator. Each time you procrastinated, you reinforced this pattern in your brain, making it stronger and easier to follow the next time. After 5-10 years, you have become an expert procrastinator just like the person who practiced the piano for 10 years. They built up finger dexterity, you built up your ability to procrastinate.

So after putting things off in every area of your life for 15 years, you decide that you don’t want to be like this anymore. You read books on changing and you vow to never procrastinate again! You do good for a few days until your will starts to fail you or you forget that you aren’t supposed to be procrastinating. You automatically start running that old pattern without even realizing you are doing it. After a week of this you suddenly realize, “I am procrastinating again!” You try some other books and they suggest other methods. You are sure you will change this time. But you get the same outcome as before. You try for a few days and decide its too hard. You are just the way you are and you can’t change. Or maybe its your parents fault or your ex boyfriend?

The problem here is that you aren’t changing your neural pathways to reflect your desired behavior pattern. If you want to stop procrastinating you have to act in the opposite way EVERY TIME you face a situation that allows you to procrastinate. You must literally rewire the brain and over write the old programming. This is not an overnight fix and more than getting rid of bad habits on the piano is. The brain will fight you every minute of the way. The brain likes consistency and does not like to change, especially as we become older and our mind begins to crystallize into set patterns of being.

The only way to make real, long lasting change is to make slow, incremental steps in the new direction you wish to journey to. You cannot take huge leaps in most cases and trying to do so usually ends in failure. Whenever you have a decision to make that involves the behavior you want to change you must recognize it as a choice to change or reinforce an old pattern. Each time you give in to the old way of doing things, you make it harder to change and easier to fall back into.

The length of time it takes to make a change depends on how deeply the original pattern was ingrained in the first place. If it was ingrained with emotion or the pattern has a high emotional charge you work will twice as difficult because they universal language of the Universe is emotion and emoting is the strongest way to program something. You must be patient with yourself and realize it will be a slow process. No one becomes a champion tennis player over night or build muscles in a day. It takes days, months, sometimes years to develop these things. Making a behavior change is no different.

Having the right tools can make your struggle much easier though. If you are trying to dig a hole with a hammer or you don’t realize that every time you scoop out some dirt you are unconsciously knocking some back in with your feet as you move forward then your journey is going to be so much harder than it needs to be. Having the right tools and a thorough knowledge of how to use those tools is essential if you wish to get the most of your time here on Earth.
