OK, so we all know about the power of the mind. We know about quantum physics and law of attraction, we know how Reiki masters can effect healing on the other side of the planet as easily as if they were laying their hands on someone. But do we REALLY know what our minds are capable of…. do we really?
I hosted an interview this past week with one of the speakers from my upcoming Rethinking Everything conference. Eric Best is his name and he is a psychologist, scientist and metaphysician. He is a product of the Rand Group think tank and a serious rethinker. One of the things he is bringing to RE this year is an exploration of Extraordinary Human Abilities: exploring spoon bending, psychokinesis and clairvoyance. We talked about his experiences with teaching people how to tap their brains and mind so that things like fire walking and spoon bending were not only possible but easy. Eric says that children typically can do these things easily; adults are more challenged. (YES! He’s going to teach us how to let go and retrain our brains!)
If an ordinary person like you or I or Eric can release the mind’s inhibitions and tap into the energy that allows us to consciously transform the physical reality of an inanimate object like a spoon, then…. holy cow, just think about what we are capable of doing with our minds. If we knew we could do it, could we create rain or stop a car from moving or a glass from hitting the floor or … stop time or make it go faster? Law of Attraction has taught me that the way my mind operates is integral to the life I lead: the kinds of relationships I have, the way I feel, the amount of “luck” I have, the quality of the doors that open for me. How good I feel (and this is entirely a function of the mind) is a direct link to how good (powerful, useful, productive, expansive) all of the incoming stimuli in my life is. I have likewise learned from my research into alien life and alien abduction that there are beings in our big, wide world that are much more advanced than we are, capable of vanishing and reappearing, capable of stopping time, stopping movement and removing memory.
I have learned from watching my children and others that the human potential is far greater, so much more expansive than what we have been conditioned to believe is possible. I have learned from people like Bernie Siegel, a doctor who writes about just some of the unexplainable miracles that occur in medicine, how critical the mind is to well being, how illness and disease can disappear overnight.
I am having fun playing with my brain. I am ready for the next big upgrade.
Listen to Eric Best’s interview here. (in which he also talks about another of his passions – community) Are you inspired?
