An In depth Look at Pranayama

On my search to finding new perspectives and insight on meditation and yoga I came across a great teacher with some lessons/lectures online to be viewed. The name of the teacher is Nehemiah Davis and is ellaborates on mystic knowledge pertaining prana energy ether, auric body, astral projection and many more topics,

One method that I have tried from watching the lectures on the Mystic Knowledge channel is the simple method of curing a head ache. The term they used that put things in perspective for me was Metaphysical medical procedures… makes sense. Just like doing a procedure only with the mind .. You draw the pain down into your heart point then push it out throw your arms and finally out through your hands. I experienced pulsating at the finger tips and quick heating up of my fingers.  I did not have a head ache at the moment im dealing with a wisdom tooth .. yeah so I definitely have pain to work with and practice.. I drew the energy down into the heart energy point then pushed out through my hands. On the inhale I would pull from Tooth/Ear Pain down to heart .. Exhale .. Push from Heart to Fingers.. This worked and I can describe it as having a bottle of water and  the water in the bottle is the pain… breathing the pain out would be like poking a whole in the bottle and draining it slowly until there is no pain.   After the pain was gone i relaxed my breathing and did not perform the deep breaths with the intent of pulling down the pain .. i relaxed my breathing and i noticed a sensation as if my ear had been sealed off from the pain. Almost like there was a hole that needed to be patched and once it was patched it felt normal again.

How does Hypnotism work?

But before considering how hypnosis works, perhaps the first question should be does hypnosis work?

Theories as to how results are achieved range from the idea that hypnosis produces changes in brain activity, to the idea that the subject is “method acting” the role of a hypnotized person, to the skeptical point of view that it’s all down to the placebo effect (which, of course, raises the awkward question “how does the placebo effect work?”). All of these theories, however, are essentially saying the same thing –hypnosis works by communicating with the unconscious mind.

Conscious and unconscious are really just shorthand terms to describe the general characteristics of the human mind. The “conscious mind” is the bit where we tend to “live” – the bit you might think of as “you”.  If there’s a little voice reading these words out loud in your head, that’s the conscious mind talking.  The unconscious mind is everything else!

The unconscious controls all of the autonomic processes that you don’t have to think about – the heart rate, the blood pressure, tissue growth, cell regeneration, the immune system and so on.  It’s where our thoughts, memories and accumulated experience reside. It controls our emotions, our habits and our responses to the world.

In many ways, it creates that world for us. The unconscious mind handles about two million bits of sensory information every single second. The conscious mind deals with about seven.  That means that the reality you’re actually aware of from moment to moment has been brought to your conscious attention by the unconscious, in a sort of Readers’ Digest version, choosing seven bits which it thinks are important from the two million it’s just processed

How does the moon really effect us?

All objects including stars, planets and satellite bodies along with their gross (tangible) attributes emanate subtle (intangible) frequencies. These physical attributes and subtle-frequencies affect us in varying degrees at a physical and subtle-level.-moon-a

The frequencies emanating from the Moon affect the frequencies of the mental body, i.e. mind of human beings. By ‘mind’ we mean our feelings, emotions and desires. The mind consists of the conscious mind and the sub-conscious mind. Within the sub-conscious mind we have a number of impressions that are embedded that decide our basic nature and personality. We are however not aware of the thoughts or impressions in our sub-conscious mind. These impressions get collected over a number of lifetimes.

These impressions in our mind are the catalysts for all our thoughts and subsequent actions. Both the impressions and our thoughts have their own subtle-frequencies.

The moon frequencies have the capacity to make the thought frequencies from the impressions in our sub-conscious mind to surface to the conscious mind. Once in the conscious mind we become aware of them. Thus one will be influenced as per the predominant impressions in one’s mind. We have explained this in more detail in the next section.

Similarly the moon also affects the mind of animals. However as the sub-conscious mind of animals consists of impressions related only to basic desires such as hunger, sex, sleep etc., the heightened thoughts are related to these basic instincts only.

10 big brain benefits of playing chess

Not for nothing is chess known as “the game of kings.” No doubt the rulers of empires and kingdoms saw in the game fitting practice for the strategizing and forecasting they themselves were required to do when dealing with other monarchs and challengers. chesshelpsbrain As we learn more about the brain, some are beginning to push for chess to be reintroduced as a tool in the public’s education. With benefits like these, they have a strong case.

1. It can raise your IQ
Chess has always had an image problem, being seen as a game for brainiacs and people with already high IQs. So there has been a bit of a chicken-and-egg situation: do smart people gravitate towards chess, or does playing chess make them smart? At least one study has shown that moving those knights and rooks around can in fact raise a person’s intelligence quotient. A study of 4,000 Venezuelan students produced significant rises in the IQ scores of both boys and girls after 4 months of chess instruction.

2. It helps prevent Alzheimer’s
Because the brain works like a muscle, it needs exercise like any bicep or quad to be healthy and ward off injury. A recent study featured in The New England Journal of Medicine found that people over 75 who engage in brain-stretching activities like chess are less likely to develop dementia than their non-board-game-playing peers. Just like an un-exercised muscle loses strength, Dr. Robert Freidland, the study’s author, found that unused brain tissue leads to a loss of brain power. So that’s all the more reason to play chess before you turn 75.

3. It exercises both sides of the brain
In a German study, researchers showed chess experts and novices simple geometric shapes and chess positions and measured the subjects’ reactions in identifying them. They expected to find the experts’ left brains being much more active, but they did not expect the right hemisphere of the brain to do so as well. Their reaction times to the simple shapes were the same, but the experts were using both sides of their brains to more quickly respond to the chess position questions.
