Can’t Lose Weight? Ask Yourself These 5 Questions

Published

on

Ah, weight loss. If there is one topic that is both heavily and emotionally charged, and at the same time talked about like it is no big deal, weight loss would be that topic.

There are a million and a half theories out there on what the best method for losing weight is, and to be honest, most of them have their valid points. There is no shortage of weight loss information – you could spend the rest of your life reading books, listening to lectures and chatting with experts, learning all there is to learn on the subject.

But even with this abundance of information, for many weight loss is still a really tough endeavour. I think we have all come to the conclusion that calories in versus calories out is only a very small fraction of the puzzle that is long term healthy weight loss, and I believe that most of us now understand that there is so much more to it than what you eat.

What You Eat Matters

Of course what you eat matters – and there are several ‘experts’ out there that are going to try to tell you that their diet is the best. I am not here to shove food facts down your throat, or to try to convince you that there is one sure fire way to lose weight and keep it off for good.

The reason? I don’t really believe that there is any one ‘diet’ or ‘lifestyle’ that is right for everyone.

I believe that the real secret to long term healthy weight loss is for you to tune into yourself. For you to tune into your innate wisdom.

I believe that your body is designed to be healthy. Your body is designed to naturally exist at a weight that allows you to live life to the fullest.

I believe that if you are to truly tap into all of the information that exists in your physical vehicle that you will have no problems finding a diet and lifestyle plan that serves you and your health.

Tap Into YOU!

You do not need a ‘health expert’ to give you a diet or exercise plan. You can totally get ideas and inspirations from people, but in truth the most effective route to personal health is tapping into your own intuition and body knowledge.

So with that, if you are struggling to lose weight, here are five questions you can ask yourself that may help lead you in the healthy direction you wish to go.

Question 1: Are You Really Listening To Your Body?

You have have most likely heard health experts tell you that you need to ‘listen to your body’ so many times, that now it probably feels cliche. Which is really sad because the act of really tuning into your body and listening to what it has to say to you is so profoundly healing. But what does listening to your body actually, practically look like? This is one of those areas where I feel that there is a huge difference between understanding a concept, and actually following through with a concept.

Truly listening to your body means that:

  • You are not on any sort of rigid routine or set pattern.
  • You sleep when you are tired.
  • You get up and move when you feel like moving.
  • You listen when your body asks for a particular food AND you notice how that food makes you feel after you eat it.
  • You pay attention to your body and its communications with you.
  • You eat what you are craving, trusting your body to lead you to the right foods.

I know that many people feel like if they really listened to their bodies and ate what they felt like eating, that they would end up eating buckets of ice cream and thousands of chicken wings.

The truth is, if you are truly listening to your body, you are tuning into how you are feeling before, during and after you eat. You may think your body is craving ice cream – but the subsequent stomach ache and feelings of lethargy are a good sign that it was not your body that was asking for the ice cream at all.

Learning to trust your body, to actually eat when you are hungry, stop eating when you are full, sleep when you are tired and move when you feel like moving will set you up for weight loss and health success for the long term. It may take some time to re-open the lines of communication between your mind and your body – but it is time well spent.

Take Home Tip:

For one day, commit to following your body’s guidance. Commit to eating when you feel hungry – not when you are bored, restless or tired. Commit to sleeping when you are sleepy. Commit to moving when you feel energized. Then commit to noticing how it feels when you do these things. This one day will show you that your body is trustworthy, and that you just need to tune back into it to access its knowledge.

Question 2: Are You Conscious When You Eat?

It is really easy to eat mindlessly now a days. In fact, I would say it is way easier to eat mindlessly than it is to eat mindfully. There are so many things to distract you from fully engaging in your meal – TV, driving, work, your cell phone, children, friends and even your own thoughts.

When you eat while distracted, many things are happening:

1. You are impairing proper digestion because you are most likely not going to be chewing your food properly. Digestion starts in the mouth, and your stomach does not have teeth. Your stomach acid and digestive enzymes are designed to process food that has been liquified – not large chunks. These un-chewed pieces of food will pass through your digestive tract un-digested causing gas, bloating, and may even lead to damage to your intestinal tract.

2. You are not going to be aware of your satiety signals. It takes about 20 minutes for your brain to register that your stomach is full. If you are mindlessly mowing down your meal, there is a high chance that you are going to eat beyond your hunger, and will end up feeling overly full and uncomfortable by the time you get the message that you are satisfied.

3. You will be mentally missing your meal, meaning you are going to be much more likely to walk away unsatisfied, even if you eat enough. Remember that the ritual of eating is a complete sensory experience – you are meant to look at your food, smell it, notice its textures, enjoy its flavours – not just pile it in.

4. You will most likely miss any signs from your body about the food you are eating and whether it is something that is serving your health or not. You do not need to eat an entire bag of cookies before you notice that they did not make you feel good. If you are paying attention, you can eat a few bites of a cookie and know that it is not optimal for you. When you are paying attention you can avoid future pain.

All of the above can lead to weight gain, difficulty losing weight and other health problems.

Take Home Tip:

Next time you eat, do so with as few distractions as possible. Turn off your phone and the TV. If you are going to listen to music, choose something calming and soothing. Have light conversation or no conversation at all. Just experiment with this and see how it makes you feel.

Question 3: Are You Processing Your Emotions?

You may not think that your emotions have anything to do with your weight, but the truth is all of your unprocessed emotions have an effect on you.

This is not some hippy dippy, airy fairy idea either. The idea that having unresolved emotional pain can cause you to create habits that lead to weight gain actually makes a lot of logical sense.

Food Is A Numbing Agent

Food is our nations number one numbing drug.

There are millions of neurone like receptors in your gut – this is where your ‘gut feelings’ come from. What this means for your eating and your weight is if you have filled your digestive system with lots of food, those neurone like receptors are going to be so busy orchestrating all that must occur for you to digest your food, that you literally will not be able to experience any intense emotions at the same time. Essentially the more you eat, the more you will be dulling any intense emotions that may be causing you distress. If you have a lot of unresolved pain, there is a good chance that you will be turning to food to help you cope more often than your body can compensate for – which will lead to weight gain.

Food The Mood Moulder 

The other reason that emotional issues can lead to weight gain is because food can alter your mood. We all know that refined sugars will give you an energy boost that may make you feel happier for a period of time. Caffeine and other stimulating foods can help pump up your energy when you are feeling down. Rich and fatty foods that help to mellow you out and take the harsh edges off of life.

Your emotional state will drive your eating habits if you are not consciously aware of what is going on within you. Also remember that in our society we are basically taught to use food as a way to avoid our emotions. We are given ‘treats’ as children when we are sad to make us feel better. We are taught that yelling, crying, throwing a tantrum or otherwise expressing negative emotions is bad and that we need to repress these things. Learning to actually deal with and process what is going on within you may be a bit of a daunting task at first, but remember that it is going to improve your life in so many ways – including your waist line.

Take Home Tip:

Next time you feel a strong negative emotion, set a timer for 30 seconds, and allow yourself just to sit in it. Do not try to distract yourself with food or the  TV. Just sit with it. Allow it to be and see if you can just observe yourself in the moment, rather than attaching to the feeling or reacting to it. This simple allowing is the first step in the process of processing. After the 30 seconds is up, you may carry on with whatever you feel is best to do. Try this every time you feel a negative emotion.

Question 4: Are You Killing Your Metabolism With Exercise?

Here is the deal – exercise doesn’t make you thin. Exercise wont make you lean, healthy, toned and/or ripped. Exercise will make you fit – meaning it will improve your muscle strength and size, it will decrease your resting heart rate, it will help mobilize lymphatic tissue, it will help to move toxins out through your skin, it will help to increase your lung capacity – all of which are amazing things, but it won’t make you skinny.

There are a few reasons for this.

1. The amount of calories you burn during exercise is generally not enough to have any significant effect on your overall calorie balance. You have to workout pretty hard in order to make any significant gains.

2. The foods you eat are the real heavy weight hitters when it comes to your body weight. Have you ever heard the saying that you can’t out exercise a bad diet? This is totally and completely true. You can be a marathon runner that still carries extra weight if you are not eating properly.

3. If you are over-exercising or otherwise stressing your body beyond a natural, normal level, you are going to cause your adrenal glands to start creating stress hormones. These stress hormones will mess with your blood sugar levels, and they will cause your body to go into protection mode. For example, they will cause your body to go into a ‘fight or flight’ state, which over time actually leads to a reduction in your metabolic rate and storage of body fat. This is also going to lead to things like inflammation, the destruction of body tissues, depression, excess fatigue, mood swings and a whole host of other issues.

Basically, killing yourself in the gym is not going to help you get thin and may in fact lead to weight gain.

Take Home Tip:

Choose activity that you actually enjoy doing, and only do it for as long as it feels good. If that means starting with a 10-15 minute walk, start with a 10-15 minute walk. As your fitness increases you will most likely gain the motivation to walk a little longer. Making your fitness routine fun is going to ensure that you stay motivated to move your body for the rest of your life. This will lead to you gaining all the amazing benefits of exercise, without leading to any of the pitfalls that come with over-exercising. In the long run this is going to have a much more desirable effect on your body weight and your health overall.

Question 5: Are You Finding Joy Each Day?

Lastly, if you are stressed to the max, working yourself to the bone or otherwise not finding time each day to do the things that make you happy, you are most likely not going to achieve your ideal weight. As with over-exercising, living in a perpetually stressed out state is going to cause your body to over produce stress hormones, which do lead to weight gain as a way of protecting you.

Your stress hormones are actually an ancient tool your body used to use to protect you from the dangers of living in the wild. Adrenaline and Cortisol both work to mobilize stored blood sugars so that they are usable for your cells, they move blood away from your digestive organs out to your arms and legs, they reduce digestive function, increase inflammation and give you what you need in order to effectively fight or run away from danger.

If you are constantly producing stress hormones in today’s world, you are most likely not burning them off through the physical activity of fighting or fleeing, nor are you likely to be resting and recovering after the stressor has ended. This means that you are going to be throwing your whole hormonal system out of balance, decreasing your bodies ability to digest your food properly, and throwing your blood sugar levels out of whack – all of which will cause cravings and weight gain.

The second reason that not having joy in your life can cause weight issues is because of the fact that as a human, you are wired for pleasure. It is in your DNA to seek out pleasurable situations. If you are not getting your pleasurable needs met, then food may become your one and only source of pleasure. When this happens, food takes a disproportionally large place in your life, because now it has to fill two roles – the role of nourishment and the roles of pleasure and entertainment. It is this issue that tends to cause things like food addiction.

Take Home Tip:

Add fun to your life that has nothing to do with food. Choose an activity you really enjoy doing -like reading, playing sudoku, snuggling with your kids or whatever else brings you joy, and commit to doing it every day for at least 15 minutes. Then really take note of how it makes you feel, and how it affects your desire to eat.

So what do you think? Do any of these ideas resonate with you? I would love to hear your perspectives and experiences!

Full Moon In Sagittarius: Expansive Inspiration

Published

on

We are having a Full Moon in Sagittarius on June 17th with the Moon appearing the brightest on the night of June 16th in the Western world. The energies of it are strongest in the days before and after, however, it will still be a part of the backdrop over the following two weeks. This is the peak of the Lunar cycle which began on June 3rd with a New Moon in Gemini.

Full Moon’s are a period in which we feel a push-pull between two opposing signs, in this case being the Sun in Gemini and Moon in Sagittarius. It can reflect either a conflict or integration of both signs. We can feel this opposition happening individually within us and/or we can also experience it play out around us with some people (or circumstances) expressing the Gemini side and others expressing the Sagittarius side.

Gemini is an Air sign ruled by Mercury. It is socially and mentally oriented. Gemini is associated with communication and information. It is articulate, curious, clever, informative, quick witted, and dualistic. It is the sign of multiple personalities. Negatively, it can be gossipy, inconsistent, superficial, insincere, two-faced, and too much in the mind without consideration of the heart.

Sagittarius is a Fire sign ruled by Jupiter. It is adventurous, worldly, philosophical, idealistic, jovial, passionate, optimistic, expansive, outspoken, blunt, and free spirited. It is associated with beliefs, travel, teaching, publishing,and marketing. Negatively it can be arrogant, pretentious, preachy, exaggerating, irresponsible, reckless, and can overdo things without taking potential consequences into consideration.

Gemini and Sagittarius are both associated with learning. The difference between the two is that Sagittarius is more broad minded and invested in its own experiential or idealistic perspective. Gemini is more factual with information and details, generally from other sources, but may lack development in its own views in comparison. Also Gemini represents more of the local and immediate environment, while Sagittarius is the world at large. Both signs can be adaptable, versatile, yet can also be scattered.

Full Moon Aligned With The Galactic Center, Eclipses and Saturn Conjunct South Node Coming Up

This Full Moon is aligned with the Galactic Center which symbolically can have different meanings. It can represent higher consciousness, and tapping into new ideas, perspectives, and concepts. It can reflect experiences that help to push us forward in our evolution. It is even associated with extraterrestrials and ultra-terrestrial energy.

However, the evolutionary quality of the Galactic Center can also play out through immense pressures, challenges, and even destructiveness to help us bring in something new. Interestingly, this Full Moon is two weeks prior to a Solar Eclipse followed by a Lunar Eclipse in mid-July which fits in well with Galactic Center themes.

Eclipse season is a period that can feel heavy yet ultimately helps to facilitate certain changes in our lives which can play out in the months following. The effects of an eclipse can begin up to 6 weeks prior and can be felt more heavily as we get closer to it. I will be publishing separate content on them, you can join my mailing list here to ensure that you receive it.

Saturn will also make a 2nd conjunction with the South Node over the coming weeks during its retrograde. This aspect began in April and is part of a process that will conclude in early Fall. Ultimately it has to do with endings connected to issues of the past that can be holding us back from our future.

We may have to continue to go through some experiences related to this over the coming months before finally letting go of (or moving on from) whatever this is triggering in our lives. This energy can also feel a bit heavy, especially with Pluto close by. It may bring up themes connected to responsibilities, maturity, commitments, boundaries, structures, career obligations, barriers, and limitations.

Jupiter Square Neptune with Venus Triggering It, Saturn Sextile Neptune

As mentioned in previous articles, Jupiter in Sagittarius (also ruler of Sagittarius) is in a square with Neptune in Pisces throughout much of this year. It will be strong at this time with the Full Moon also triggering it.

This can be an expansive energy in regards to spirituality, creativity, imagination, dreams, idealism, or compassionate pursuits.  However, it can also be a time of confusion around beliefs, faith, and perspectives. This aspect on its own can be overly idealistic and can reflect overlooking. certain details and facts. However, Saturn’s aspect with Neptune (mentioned below) can help to mitigate that and can be different for everybody.

Saturn in Capricorn is making its second sextile with Neptune which is strong at the time of this Full Moon and the weeks before and after. It began in late January and will conclude in November.  This can assist us in taking a structured, realistic, disciplined, committed approach when it comes to ideals, dreams, inspirations, creativity, spirituality, or even anything that involves selflessness, compassion, or healing. For some people it may be connected to career and ambitions.

Venus in Gemini will be forming a T-square with Jupiter-Neptune which will be strongest on June 23rd, and on the 24th for those in the Eastern part of the world. At best, this energy can be good for creative pursuits or social activities that are spiritually oriented.

However, it can also play out as overdoing pleasurable activities or escapism. We also need to be cautious of being unrealistic around money or perhaps even overspending. There can also be conflicts around values, beliefs, and ideals. In our relations, we may experience confusion or issues around our boundaries.

Saturn in Capricorn is making its second sextile with Neptune. It began in late January and will conclude in November. Although this isn’t as strong as the Jupiter-Neptune aspect mentioned above, this can assist us in taking a structured, disciplined or committed approach when it comes to ideals, dreams, inspirations, creativity, spirituality, or even anything that involves selflessness, compassion, or healing.

Mercury Conjunct Mars Near North Node, Opposing Pluto With Saturn

Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, is in Cancer while making a conjunction to Mars and close to the North Node. It is in an opposition to Pluto with Saturn and the South Node close by. This energy is strongest from June 18th-20th.

At best, this can reflect active and deep thinking. We might feel a need to act on or consider the future but may have to contend with challenges connected to the past. Or perhaps dealing with old obstacles can help us progress forward in some cases.

This can be a time in which there is a higher potential for conflicts, arguments, power struggles, compulsive behavior, and overall intensity. It would be good to be active at this time, however, it would also be wise to not do anything risky or potentially dangerous. This energy can also be positively utilized for actions that involve clearing, purging, transforming, or destroying.

Mercury will be going retrograde on July 7th, days after the next Solar Eclipse that is occurring on July 2nd. The pre-shadow period begins on June 20th so keep in mind that certain developments that occur after that date may go through a sorting out process until mid Summer. With all of this going on, a large percentage of people can expect some significant shifts over the next 6-8 weeks.

Things To Consider During This Period

What is the big picture for you and what do you need to take into consideration? Are there any aspects of your beliefs that you are lacking clarity around? What inspires you? What do you want to learn or teach? How can you make your ideals or dreams a reality? Have you been feeling pressure to make certain changes in your life? Do you need to address unfinished business? What aspects of your past do you need to sort out to help you expand forward?

These are just some examples of themes that could come up during this period; however, there may be other variations of this energy playing out as well.  If you wish to do any sort of intentional release connected to what has come up at this Full Moon, it is best to do so anytime over the two weeks following, when it is waning. The exact moment of this Full Moon is on June 17th at 8:31am Universal Time. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.

Russian Military Colonel Publishes An Article Claiming Human & Animal Telepathy Is 100 Percent Real

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The Russian Ministry of Defense published an article about the existence of military parapsychology in Russian military techniques, which allows one to penetrate into the thoughts of another, hack computer programs, and communicate telepathically.

  • Reflect On:

    Why is this type of science studied at the highest levels of various governments, yet ridiculed and not studied at all within the mainstream?

Is telepathy real? It’s hard to argue against it; in fact, I would say that it’s not really up for debate. That being said, when it comes to topics like these, the field is polluted with a bad reputation given its association with magic, superstition and ‘pseudoscience,’ terms that often come from those who condemn the subject without ever really looking into it. The evidence for the existence of telepathy is actually quite overwhelming, and in many cases, much stronger than most other areas of science.

Dr. Jessica Utts is a great person to bring up, as I’ve done many times before, to hammer this fact home. She is the  Chair of the Department of Statistics at the University of California, Irvine. In 1999, she published a paper showing how the statistical significance with regards to results seen from studies under the realm of parapsychology (telepathy, remote viewing, etc) are stronger than some of the studies used to approve some medications. In a recent interview, she emphasized the following.

“What convinced me was just the evidence, the accumulating evidence as I worked in this field and I got to see more and more of the evidence. I visited the laboratories, even beyond where I was working to see what they were doing and I could see that they had really tight controls… and so I got convinced by the good science that I saw being done. And in fact I will say as a statistician I’ve consulted in a lot of different areas of science; the methodology and the controls on these experiments are much tighter than any other area of of science where I’ve worked.” (source)

Why is it that these topics are not touched by mainstream academia, yet studied at the highest levels of government? Multiple governments all over the world have been studying this phenomenon for decades, and a lot has been declassified. Take the remote viewing program that was conducted by the US government/CIA and Stanford University, for example.

After its declassification in 1995, or at least its partial declassification, the Department of Defense and those involved revealed an exceptionally high success rate.

To summarize, over the years, the back-and-forth criticism of protocols, refinement of methods, and successful replication of this type of remote viewing in independent laboratories has yielded considerable scientific evidence for the reality of the [remote viewing] phenomenon. (source)

The latest example comes from Russia, as their Ministry of Defence recently published an article about the existence and study of parapsychology within the Russian military. The article explains how these techniques are and were used to penetrate the thoughts of the enemy (mind-reading) as well as to hack into enemy computer systems. The article is titled “Super Soldier for the Future Wars” and was published in the Defense Army magazine.

The article was written by Colonel Nikolai Poroskov, who explained that they use parapsychological techniques like telepathy for combat purposes, revealing secrets, disclosing locations, etc… He even discloses that Russian specialists have learned telepathy by working with dolphins.

As a note to readers, we here at Collective Evolution do not condone the use of animals for any type of experimentation. There is no information on the conditions of these experiments, but we are assuming they were captured for military purposes, which is extremely sad and heart-breaking.

Poroskov writes:

“They mentally gave the animals the commands that they carried out. Similar practiced by the famous trainer Durov. The technique, as it turned out, is applicable to humans. Moreover, the impact was even possible on the technique. With an effort of thought you can, for example, shoot down computer programs, burn crystals in generators, eavesdrop on a conversation, or break television and radio broadcasts and communications. Good luck ended with such experiments as reading a document lying in a safe, even if it is in a foreign language that we do not speak; identification of individuals belonging to the terrorist network; identifying potential candidates for terrorist groups,” the statement reads. (source)

Quite astonishing, isn’t it? Parapsychology seems to be the largest known threat to any type of secrecy, doesn’t it? I found the reference to hacking computers quite interesting. Can telepathy really be used for purposes like hacking electronic equipment? I did some more digging and found an interesting document inside of the CIA’s electronic reading room with regards to the Soviet Union.

Here’s a quote from the document:

The Soviet Union is well aware of the benefits and applications of parapsychology research. In 1963, a Kremilin edict apparently gave top priority to biological research, which in Russia includes parapsychology. The major impetus behind the Soviet drive to harness the possible capabilities of telepathic communication, telekinetics, and bionics is said to come from the Soviet military and the KGB. Today it is reported that the USSR has twenty or more centres for the study of parapsychological phenomena, with an annual budget estimated in 1967 at over 13 million dollars and reported to be as high as 21 million dollars.

Today, we know that trillions of dollars have gone into black budget programs in the United States, many of which likely deal with parapsychology, as they have in the past.

The document also states:

There are reports that the Soviets are training their cosmonauts in telepathy to back-up their electronic equipment while in outer space. One of these back-up schemes is known to involve coded telepathic messages. This method was previously demonstrated in March 1967, when a coded telepathic message was flashed from Moscow to Leningrad. The involvement of astronauts or cosmonauts in telepathy experiments is not necessarily unprecedented. In February 1971, during the Apollo 14 flight to the moon, astronaut Edgar Mitchell made 150 separate attempts to project his thoughts from inside the space capsule back to an individual on earth. The results of the Apollo 14 experiments have been well-documented in detail and are published in the Journal of Parapsychology. (source)

Deeper Black Budget Discussion On CETV

Again, these programs lie within the realm of the black budget and are highly classified. Who knows how far ahead of the mainstream world they truly are?

CETV is a platform we created in order to combat the censorship and demonetization we have been facing over the past few years. On episode 4 of The Collective Evolution Show on CETV, we discussed the black budget in much greater detail. Below is a clip exploring the missing money from the black budget and special access programs, explaining where the money is going and what exactly it’s being used for.

You can become a member of CETV, get access to the full show and many others, and support conscious media here.

The Takeaway

Human consciousness and parapsychology should not only be studied for the purposes of learning new defence tactics. Humans have great potential, and there is still so much that we have yet to discover about ourselves. What needs to change is the intention behind these discoveries.

Ex-Government Physicist Shares What He Knows About ‘Activating’ ESP (Psi) Dreaming

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Dale E. Graff, a physicist and former director of the US government/Stanford remote viewing program shares his knowledge about dreaming, and how we can all experience what he calls 'Psi' dreaming.

  • Reflect On:

    How much have our governments and black budget programs really discovered within these realms? How much is known and why are they keeping t classified?

The most astonishing fact about studies within the realm of parapsychology (Psi) is that they are often shunned by the mainstream media and this comes despite the fact that they have extremely high amounts of credibility within the realms of academia. Parapsychology deals with phenomena like pre-cognition, remote viewing, telepathy, mind matter interaction, and more that fall under the label of extra sensory perception (ESP), and the truth is, there is no reason why these topics should not be studied openly within the mainstream. Why is it that they are ridiculed in that realm, but have been studied at the highest levels of government for decades with high amounts of success and credibility? The US/Stanford University STARGATE project is one of many examples that confirm parapsychology’s legitimacy.

These programs usually run and are funded by the black budget. Find out where trillions of our tax dollars are going here.

Dr. Jessica Utts, the Chair of the Department of Statistics at the University of California, Irvine makes a great point on the show Talking Points, further emphasizes my point.

“What convinced me was just the evidence, the accumulating evidence as I worked in this field and I got to see more and more of the evidence. I visited the laboratories, even beyond where I was working to see what they were doing and I could see that they had really tight controls… and so I got convinced by the good science that I saw being done. And in fact I will say as a statistician I’ve consulted in a lot of different areas of science; the methodology and the controls on these experiments are much tighter than any other area of of science where I’ve worked.” (source)

Based on all of my research into the field of parapsychology, the information seems to be shunned away from in mainstream academia simply because it has an association with superstition, spirituality, metaphysics and ‘magic’. This alone, no matter how strong the evidence and how significant the results when studied in a scientific setting, instantly have closed-minded ‘non-believers’ yell out pseudoscience. There is instant condemnation without investigation and sometimes, “protecting against this possibility sometimes seems more important than encouraging scientific exploration or protecting academic freedom. But this may be changing.” Said Cassandra Vieten, PhD and President/CEO at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (source).

One realm within the topic of parapsychology is the study of our dreams and there is no better person to learn about dreams from than than Dale E. Graff.  Graff is an MS in Physics and a life long investigator of Psi phenomena specializing in a variety of extrasensory perception (ESP) topics including remote viewing and precognitive dreaming. He has a scientific background in the aerospace industries and in technical intelligence assignments for the Department of Defense. He was also a director of the STARGATE program mentioned above.

In the lecture below, he answers the following questions: What is Psi dreaming? How can individuals experience Psi dreams? How can Psi dreaming be researched and evaluated scientifically? What can we do with Psi dreaming? How can Psi dreaming be understood relative to other forms of Psi, such as remote viewing and some types of intuition?

He provides information about how Psi dreaming is accomplished, and goes into the evidence and investigations that have shown evidence for the reality of Psi dreaming. He talks about how Psi dreaming may occur and provides exercises to assist in dream recall, among other things.

The Takeaway

A great quote that’s often attributed to Nikola Tesla reads as follows, “The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.”  This is true I believe, just take a look at quantum physics for example, it really opened up the collective mind about non-physical factors of reality and how it may influence material physical reality. It also demonstrated that matter itself, which makes up all of physical reality, is not really physical at all, that it’s mostly comprised of energy. Just look at the atom, the smallest observable piece of matter, it’s what everything else is made up of. An atom is almost all empty space, more than 99 percent of it to be exact. The kicker? That empty space is not useless, and from what we know now, “empty space” is really not “empty” at all. This is why I’ve always stressed the importance in many of my previous articles of this quote from theoretical physicist John Wheeler:

No point is more central than this, that space is not empty, it is the seat of the most violent physics.”

Another great quote from Tesla:

“All perceptible matter comes from a primary substance, or tenuity beyond conception, filling all space, the akasha, or luminiferous ether, which is acted upon by the life-giving Prana or creative force, calling into existence, in never-ending cycles all things and phenomena.” – Nikola Tesla, Man’s Greatest Achievement, 1907

The point is, non-physical reality, and the metaphysical world is not limited to philosophy, but it’s been subjected to rigorous investigation and science. The collective mind seems to be opening up quite rapidly, but just as we look back in the past to some concepts now accepted as truth that were once considered blasphemy, it’s important to remember that this type of resistance still exists today.
