Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

This Full Moon occurs today on March 5th at 1:05pm (EST). It is in Virgo, the sign of self-care, details, health, organizing, discernment, perfection, service, work, and the details of life. Virgo is an Earth sign, and is very much orientated around reality in the physical world. It is opposite the Sun in Pisces (which has been there for the last 2 weeks),  a more mystical and spiritual sign. It is a dreamer and more tuned in to the unconscious. Pisces also is a creative and right brained energy which can also be elusive, while Virgo is more linear and matter of fact. At this Full Moon, these two energies are in a tug-of-war with each other. This period could be a time to turn your dreams into something real and tangible. It could also mean discerning or releasing anything that seems unrealistic or delusional.

For some people, it could also be a great time for healing, especially because of the other planets involvement in this Full Moon. With this energy, It’s important to employ physical healing techniques in balance with the spiritual ones. Often, spiritually orientated people tend to mainly gravitate towards spiritual or energy healing modalities (such as Reiki) but unless we use other methods that work on a physical level, then the spiritual healing will have limited results and will not be fully embodied. This Full Moon (and the next 2 weeks) is a good time to do any type of physical cleansing, detox, and  physical techniques to help with spiritual healing. Modalities and exercises that help to release old traumas and patterns can also be very helpful such as Yoga, Qi Gong, Tai Chi, or the revolutionary Trauma Release Exercises. It would be wise to be open to anything else that is presented to you at this time which helps in this way.

By the end of the month, after the Sun goes into Aries, many of us may find ourselves busier with new initiatives. You may want to take this time over the next few weeks to organize, clean, clear and prepare for a more action orientated time period. It is a good time to get a head start on your spring cleaning and try to have it all done before the next New Moon and Equinox on March 20th. It is also a good time to use Feng Shui to optimize productivity in your workspace and home. The Virgo-Pisces axis is excellent for this approach.

Other aspects over the next few weeks suggest that this could be a time of significant changes that allow us to really move forward in our lives, but we always need to release or transform the things that are getting in our way which could be some of the things described above. Pisces is the sign of escapism, and for anyone who has escapist tendencies, this Full Moon and is an opportunity to transform this into productivity in the real world. Challenge yourself into new productive habits and routines.

 

Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn…The Final Square Off

As a collective, we have been experiencing tense energies since June 2012, thanks to the interplay between Uranus and Pluto. The geometric angle these two planets have manifested into global protests, uprisings, increased activism, political reforms, countries going bankrupt, new currencies getting the spotlight, and much more. An increasing amount of people are getting fed up by the conditions that have been set-up by hierarchy, Protestbanks, politicians, racist police, corporations, Monsanto, as well as Oil and dirty energy industries, etc. Uranus is known as the ‘awakener’, and in Aries it is rebellious. It also rules technology. Pluto is a transformer but also represents those in power who control and manipulate us. It is in the sign of Capricorn which rules monetary structures (such as banking, currency) but also rules governments, corporations, and other structures in place that have sort of managing effect in the world at large. During this time, people have been waking up and challenging these power structures, and technology has been a valuable asset to this cause. This month, we will experience the final tense square off between these two planets which will be exactly on March 16th, but can be felt in the weeks leading up this date and afterwards.

In our personal lives many people have been experiencing similar effects. We may be challenging outdated structures that go against our personal freedom and individuality. Depending on how these planets are affecting you individually, many people may have had flare ups with employers, parents, authorities, and those who hold traditional limiting views that try to inhibit your freedom, individuality and self-expression. One thing I’ve definitely noticed over the last 3 years is the vast amounts of people attempting to become self-employed by using the internet and technology. We are in a time now where technological advancements are allowing us to make a living by doing something that truly reflects our unique self expression. However, I’m saying all of this loosely because it really depends on how these planets are affecting you as an individual which can be determined by identifying Uranus and Pluto’s positions in relation to your natal astrology chart. As this Uranus-Pluto theme concludes this month, we will see some more events and circumstance occur (big or small, and on an individual and global level) with the themes described above. However, although the final peak of this energy will conclude over the next month, it will still be lingering more subtlety until the rest of the year. Also, Pluto will be in Capricorn until the year 2023, so we will continue to experience transformations in government, corporate, and banking structures until then. To put this into perspective, the last time Pluto was in Capricorn the United States became a country which became the dominant governing country and currency during the following 248 year orbit of Pluto. So, by the time we reach 2023, expect to see some new structures established which will be pivotal for the next 248 years. It is believed by conspiracy theorists that those in control would like to create a global government sometimes referred to as the ‘New World Order’. However, with the input and activism of the people and the collective, we can use this period to create our own structures that favour everyone.

Horoscopes for March 5th until March 19th

*Note: These are generalized Sun sign horoscopes and should be taken lightly. The most accurate way to do a horoscope is when an astrologer uses a person’s natal birth chart which requires the exact birth date, time, and location of birth. For more information on doing a detailed horoscope, click on my website link below in my bio.

Aries: This Full Moon emphasizes the need to focus on the details, work, health, and your day-to-day routines. With the changes you make, it can be beneficial and even transformative in your career. You may catch the attention in a positive way from your employers or those who have authority over you. Or you feel the need to make necessary changes in your life to help you change your career path. You have a lot of energy and it would be beneficial to look for an outlet, such as implementing a new exercise routine or any type of sport. Also, you may feel really anxious especially from March 10-17 as their is a possibility that you may feel the need to suddenly rebel against those in power over you. Also be extra careful from March 10-12 as there is a higher risk of accident or injury. Don’t let your irritability get the best of you.

Taurus: This Full Moon highlights your love life, fun, creativity, and children. Some Taurus folk may even want to get involved in a team orientated sport. This is a good period for deepening your ‘big picture’ perspective and philosophical beliefs. This an excellent time to use your creativity in powerful ways and especially for those who are teachers, writers, or work in marketing fields. If you are in a relationship this can be an extra fun and exciting time. If you are not in a relationship, then there is a chance that a new potential lover might be in the picture. If this is the case, it would be wise not to get too attached. A new love interest can be expansive for you on a spiritual or philosophical level, but probably won’t be long lasting. Just have fun with it!

Gemini: This Full Moon highlights your home and family. It is a good time to organize around the house and even start your spring cleaning. Renovations, upgrades, or moving to a new home can also be a theme. Their could also be some positive developments around your shared resources with your family or with those you live with. This Full Moon can be a bit tougher for those born between June 2nd – 8th, as you can be tested or challenged, but its effects largely depend on the dynamics of your natal chart. From March 11th – 12th, you may have issues with coworkers or peers. For those of you who are activists, you may find yourself busy in this regard between March 11th – 17th. It would be a great time to spread whatever message that you’d like to share.

Cancer: This Full Moon is a time to communicate how you feel to those closest to you about things that need to be changed in your relationships with them. It could be with your lover, a partner, siblings, or even neighbours or those in your community. You may see that things are not as good as they can be and you are looking to sort that out. Others way look at you as being nitpicky and you may butt heads with them over their opinions. However, the end result can be significant positive change. From March 10th -12th you may want to try new or unconventional things in your career, or you their may be sudden changes that occur beyond your control. Either way it plays out, you will likely gain from it in a positive and expansive way. Between March 10th-17th there is also a possibility that you rebel against those who try to manipulate or exert power over you.

Leo: This Full Moon highlights your values, money, resources, and self-worth. This can be a good time to do your taxes or get everything ready and organized in preparation for your taxes. You may also want to implement new health regimens, let go of bad habits, and/or change your  routine to help boost your self-esteem. You may also want to change your job in order to improve your income which could also boost your self-worth. If that is the case, then the best time to send out resumes will be March 9th – 10th. If you are self-employed then you could use those same dates to market yourself and your business to help you in boosting your income. However, you may not get the stability you are looking for until March 17th and in the weeks following. Also, from March 11th-17th, your spiritual, philosophical, and big picture perspective may undergo some radical changes that could influence the line of work you want or the need to change your lifestyle.

Virgo: This Full Moon is in your sign, so you will especially feel it. Your emotional sensitivity will be heightened at this time and you may feel the need to contemplate how everything is going in your life. It can be a time of profound insights around changes that need to be made in your relationships, and especially your love life. If you have been self-sacrificing in your relationships this can be a time where it can be addressed, especially with anything related to shared resources. This Full Moon is a time to consider what is important for you and your self-identity. Their could be positive developments and/or sudden changes around money or investments from March 9th – 11th. There will be tension and intense energies in the from March 11th – 17th and for you it could manifest in your love life. If you are not in a relationship then it could be a time where you need to face your fears of being in one. From March 12th and for the following 2.5 weeks, it could be a time where you could be of great service to others.

Libra: This Full Moon is a stimulative time for your creativity and imagination. You could also gain inspiration through your dreams. However, for many Libras this will be a social time and your creativity and inspiration can be stimulated through your friends and network, or tied into your social life some other way. Your network can expand very much, especially from March 9th-10th.  It is also a good time to make positive changes in your home, and the Libra approach to that is making it more aesthetically pleasing. You may even want to do this by making your space more conductive of positive spiritual energies by using feng shui, crystals, or anything else that comes to mind. If you are in a relationship, there could be sudden changes and/or tension from March 11th – 17th, but in some cases it can also be an exciting time. Either way it could be transformative period, even if no relationship is involved. If a new love interest comes into your life suddenly it can have a powerful effect on you. If thats the case, it likely won’t be long lasting and could be ultimately problematic.

Scorpio: This Full Moon highlights your work, social life, groups involved with, co-workers, peers, and social causes. It is a good time to think about how you could contribute your creative energy to your work as well as the collective and for some Scorpios, how it could  be of service to humanity. Conversations with others can prove to stimulating and transforming. Your words can even have a powerful effect on others with your depth. This is a period where you can achieve a lot in your work. As a result, the period between March 9th -10th can be a time where the fruits of your labour are realized and can move you upward in your line of work, reputation, and status. Their can even be an unexpected or surprising reward for you. The period between March 11th – 17th can be a bit intense and chaotic. Any type of communications, writing, work can have someone respond to you in an erratic way or may try to exert power over you. Maybe some changes need to be made or maybe you’re just being tested or challenged. Just hang in there, it will pass after the next New Moon on March 21st.

Sagittarius: This Full Moon highlights your career, duties, and reputation. As this Full Moon is about details, diligence, and work, it may push some Sagittarians out of their comfort zone. This period can be most challenging to those born between Dec 3rd – 11th. Finding that balance between your work and personal life could be a theme. Or you may need to make changes to improve both of them. Their could be changes in your work that  could be beneficial to your income and/or values. From March 9th-10th, it could be a fun and beneficial time in your love life. If you are in a relationship, you may want to do something with your lover that expands your perspective, maybe watch a documentary or go to a lecture, or perhaps something else. From March 11th-17th, you may find yourself in a situation where there could be a sudden event or circumstance, perhaps a fight with your lover, where your values or the way you spend your money needs to be changed. For example, Sagittarius can have a tendency to overdo things especially when it comes to having fun, spending money, drinking, and partying, so it could be related to that. With Saturn in your sign over the next few years, this a period where you need to get more serious and live your life with more discipline. As well, the Virgo Full Moon is asking you to be more conscious of your health, lifestyle and the important details of your life and work.

Capricorn: This Full Moon highlights your goals, spiritual beliefs, ‘big picture’ perspectives, and some Capricorns may even be travelling.  All of these potential themes are a reflection of, or somehow serve, your transforming self-identity and personal values. You may feel the need to communicate your truth to others. When a Capricorn speaks about their beliefs or perspectives, it comes from a very grounded perspective so therefore you could more be more easily received by those who are normally sceptical. Capricorns are more serious and ‘matter of fact’, making you an effective teacher, eye opener, or ‘agent of change’ to others. This is a period where you could be doing a lot of important work at home. From March 9th -10th you could do something in your home that can be some sort of upgrade which could increase its value to you, someone you share it with, or to some potential buyers in the future. The period from March 11th – 17th, you may find yourself in a sudden conflict at home and/or with members of your family such as your parents. Perhaps you will rebelling, or being rebelled against, but ultimately you need to speak your truth. This is a microcosm of the energy affecting the world at large.

Aquarius: This Full Moon highlights your financial obligations which could be in many different ways. It’s a good time to organize all your receipts and paperwork for your taxes. The Virgo Full Moon energy is so helpful because it is detail orientated, so use it to your advantage. There could be some changes come up around shared resources, investments, credit, banking, or even inheritance. These changes could even be orientated around a relationship or regarding shared resources within a relationship. From March 9th – 10th, you could learn something new about asserting yourself in relationships in a way that helps you and the other person grow. From March 11th – 17th, this is a tense time. Be careful while driving or walking in your neighbourhood, as there is a higher risk of accident. You could also have an intense and sudden argument with someone, and it could even be a sibling or someone else close to you. Ultimately, anything can happen in this period, so expect the unexpected.

Pisces: This Full Moon is in your opposite sign, and it may challenge you to pay more attention to the details and the realities of life. Although when looking at overall aspects that day, it’s not that bad for you and you can still go back to your ‘Pisces zone’ of imagination. This Full Moon strongly highlights your relationships and how you relate with others. Any problems around relationships might be instigated by your lack of details and realism. A theme that could play out between you and a relationship is how the two of you are contributing to a good cause. Between March 9th – 10th is a good time to do something that builds up your value in your workplace and in your career in general. From March 11th – 20th, the tense energies could play out in conflicts between you and your co-workers, peers, or amongst a group that you are part of. Their could be conflict between your values and the values of the group. Their could also be some sudden change with your personal finances and resources.

Nina Kulagina: A Real Psychokinetic Documented By The U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency

CE Staff Writer 8 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A declassified U.S. DIA report from 1972 provides a plethora of information from the then Soviet Union regarding studies and people with "paranormal" abilities. One of them is Nina Kulagina, who could use her mind to interact with matter.

  • Reflect On:

    New discoveries have always been severely ridiculed. It wasn't long ago when scientific discoveries that challenged the accepted framework of reality were ridiculed and disregarded. Have we changed much today?

Before you begin...

Coherent icon

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

Introduction: It’s quite odd that “paranormal” abilities are, and have been for decades, studied and confirmed at the highest levels of government or what some would consider at levels beyond the government in black budget Special Access Programs, yet brushed off as conspiracy theories, ridiculed, and remain virtually unacknowledged within mainstream academica.  These black budget programs are exempt from standard reporting requirements in the to congress in the United States, as outlined by a 1997 U.S. senate report, and based on my research there are also unacknowledged Special Access Programs that have no oversight at all from the government.

Unfortunately they’ve been studied and used for military and intelligence collection purposes, and have always remained “classified” for “national security” reasons. Developments and discoveries within this black budget world never seem to be brought to light or used for the benefit of humanity. In fact, the United States has a history of government agencies existing in secret for years. The National Security Agency (NSA) was founded in 1952, its existence was hidden until the mid 1960’s. Even more secretive is the National Reconnaissance Office, which was founded in 1960 but remained completely secret for 30 years. Our world today is drenched in secrecy.

From the declassified literature alone, there are many examples documenting people with gifted abilities able to do some extraordinary things. This declassified CIA document and this Air Force teleportation study outlines children with the ability to teleport objects in closed containers from one location to another. The containers were never touched or opened, showing that these children could transport the object through the sealed containers. These experiments were done under double-blind controlled conditions.

Another example documents the “paranormal writing” ability of a little girl, and a woman who is able to gather information about a person from simply holding and touching an object that is/was affiliated with the person in question. Then there is the remote viewing program which yielded significant and repeatable results, according to a paper published in the Journal of Scientific Exploration after the program was declassified. Remote viewing is the ability to describe a remote geographical from another location, regardless of distance and time.

This article looks into a woman by the name of Nina Kulagina. I use “real” in the title because the Defense Intelligence Agency report referenced below refers to her as an “outstanding PK (psychokinesis) psychic.”

What Happened: Nina Kulagina was a citizen of the former Soviet Union. She apparently demonstrated psychokinetic influence on physical objects, and caused quite a stir at the time. In 1968 western researchers attending a conference were shown a video of her in action. There are a number of documents one can find within the Central Intelligence Agency’s (CIA) electronic reading room that document her abilities and show a high level of interest in them. According to the Russians, Kulagina had been studied by forty prominent scientists, including two Nobel Laureates.

Studies of the electrical fields around her body as well as the electrical potentials in her brain, and more, were conducted by well-known physiologist Dr. Genady Sergeyev, who was working in a Leningrad military laboratory. Exceptionally strong voltages and other unusual effects were observed.

A declassified Defense Intelligence Agency document (page 35) from the United States, written by John D. Lamothe, Captain, Medical Service Corps, reads as follows:

Sergeyev has conducted several years of intensive lab research on the outstanding PK psychic in Leningrad, Nina Kulagina…Sergeyev heightened biological luminescence radiating from Kulagina’s eyes during the apparent movement of objects by pk. Sergeyev postulates that the “bio-plasma” of the human body must interact with the environment to produce pk. Sergeyev emphasizes when target objects are placed in a vacuum, Kuligina is unable to move them. Barcus in the United States reports some unusual occurrences during psychic photography especially of the eyes.

Reportedly, Kuligina has caused the movement of a wide range of non-magnetic objects: (under strict scientific control) of crystal bowls, clock pendulums, bread, matches, etc.  In one test, a raw egg was placed in a salt solution inside a sealed aquarium six feet away from her. Researchers report she was able to use PK to separate the yolk from the white of the egg. Observations by Western scientists of Mrs. Kulagina’s PK ability has been reported with verification of her authentic ability. These same Western scientists have reported that as of February 1971, they have not been able to visit or observe Mrs. Kulagina. A veil of secrecy has been placed on Sergeyev and Mrs. Kulagina for unknown reasons.

A report from 1975 when Lamothe was a Major reads as follows:

Soviet research with Kulagina…indicates that energy interchanges, or transfer between mechanisms, may be possible between gifted psychics with inanimate objects. There is evidence that Soviet research with these women (Kuligina is not the only one) also involves attempts to influence animate biological systems. In 1972, LaMothe reported that Kulagina had the capability for stopping and starting the beat of an excised, living, frog heart. If true, it supports the contention that Czech and Soviet claims for “beneficial” applications of biological energy transfer might be imposed on humans. Such dramatic effects illustrate some of the dangerous potential of controlled biological energy transfer.

According to researcher Dr. Jeffrey Mishole, who did his doctorate in Parapsychology,

There is a large gradient between the electrical characteristics in the forward part of Mikhailova’s (Kuligina) brain versus the back part of the brain (fifty to one), whereas in the average person the gradient is four to one.  The usual force field around Mikhailova’s body is ten times weaker than the magnetic field of the earth.

During PK, her pulse rises to 240 per minute.  There is activation of deeper levels of the occipital lobe and reticular formation.  This enhances polarization in the brain between front and back, says Sergeyev.  When the gradient between front and back of the brain reaches a certain level, and there is most intense activity in the occipital lobe, radiation of electrostatic and electromagnetic fields are detected by the force field detectors four feet from the body….Heartbeat, brain waves, and force field fluctuations are in ratio.  The fields around the PK medium are stronger further away than close to the head.  Mikhailova appears to focus these force field waves in a specific area.

In the 1975 report from Lamothe mentioned above, he also mentions that Kulagina experiences dizziness, elevated heart rate, anxiety and sometimes felt ill while performing in front of scientists and military personnell. Lamothe mentions that she had a much easier time and didn’t experience these symptoms and feelings of discomfort, which also affected her ability, when demonstrating her abilities in front of friends, or those who were already open to this type of phenomenon.

There are multiple videos of Kuligina that can be found on YouTube, and various articles attempting to, as with all other “psychics” who have in some way gone public or have been brought into the limelight of the public by others, debunk her and label her is a fraud. This is why I refer to official documentation published and archived by intelligence agencies, because it’s a fact that they took the matter quite seriously and those that claim to debunk Kuligina never really provide any sources. Keep in mind that she is one of many examples. The fact of the matter is that people with these types of abilities, and the idea that these abilities may be real and lay dormant within all of us simply threatens the beliefs and world paradigm of many people. This doesn’t mean that there aren’t frauds out there by the way, but it seems that everybody in this category seems to be listed as one.

Concluding Comments: Humanity still seems to have a difficult time accepting or even looking into concepts and phenomena that may not fit the frame. When it comes to topics like parapsychology, it can be especially difficult due to the fact that it’s been completely ridiculed, labelled as a hoax and deemed a “conspiracy theory” for many decades. This massie ridicule campaign has really closed the collective mind when it comes to even entertaining this type of thing.

That being said, we here at Collective Evolution continue to cover such phenomenon because it’s one of many that is and does have the potential to greatly expand human consciousness and the way we perceive our world. There is still so much to discover about the nature of reality. This is why I believe Nikola Tesla said that “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. ((Saad & Medeiros, 2015) I believe non-material science represents the next scientific revolution.

As I’ve said many times before, it’s not new discoveries, developments and technological advancements that will change the world, it’s the consciousness behind these factors that determines which way as a collective we move. Do we use our discoveries and advancements for the betterment of humanity and in service to others? Or do we use them for control, profit, greed, to build weapons and to feed the ego? Real change comes from within. We cannot change and transform the human experience without an inner transformation, and I believe humanity is currently going through that process.

Scientists Think They Have Found A Portal To The 5th Dimension

CE Staff Writer 4 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A new study claims to have found an explanation for dark matter, but relies on the discovery of a particle which leads to another dimension.

  • Reflect On:

    How do discoveries shift our understanding of reality and perhaps, who we are? Can a journey down the rabbit hole of non-material science cause understanding of the nature of human consciousness that can shift how we live our lives?

Before you begin...

Coherent icon

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

I know, it sounds like science fiction a little bit, but our world is a hell of a lot more mysterious and fascinating than much of our mainstream news and information lets on. A quick tour down the lane of post-material science returns many fascinating discoveries about superhuman abilities, extrasensory perception, remote viewing, non local consciousness and more. In short, we are extraordinary, and I believe science has shown this, even though mainstream culture lags behind in opening up to these ideas.

In a new study in The European Physical Journal C scientists are proposing the there exists a particle that can act as a portal to a fifth dimension. What exactly is the 5th dimension? Good question. Let’s start with what we know now about dimensions. To scientists there has been four known dimensions in our universe. Three that make up space (up and down, left and right, back and forth) this gives you “3D,” and a fourth dimension of time.

To understand the 5th dimension, we have to begin looking into dark matter, which is what scientists believe make up most of the mass in our universe. Dark matter happens to be something we don’t know too much about as well. We technically can’t see it, and so scientists measure what effects its mass has on other observable matter. In the most recent study the authors – Adrian Carmona, Javier Castellano Ruiz, Matthias Neubert – said their original intention was to “explain the possible origin of fermion (particle) masses in theories with a warped extra dimension”. They sketched out a new scalar associated with the fermion, which they claim is similar to the Higgs field and Higgs boson particle.

“We found that the new scalar field had an interesting, non-trivial behaviour along the extra dimension,” the researchers told VICE. “If this heavy particle exists, it would necessarily connect the visible matter that we know and that we have studied in detail with the constituents of dark matter, assuming the dark matter is composed out of fundamental fermions, which live in the extra dimension.”

In simpler terms, this new study suggests that the particle in question may be able to provide a greater explanation for dark matter, the more we know about dark matter, the more we can understand the finer workings of our unseen universe.

The authors described the particle as “a possible new messenger to the dark sector”.

The hard working is just beginning however. Scientists have to now isolate this particle. The Higgs boson particle mentioned above was spotted by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator. However it is not powerful enough to find this new particle and thus a new device would have to be created.

What intrigued me about this story was one of the statements physicists made about a new study they wrote exploring the potential of a 5th dimension:

“This new particle could play an important role in the cosmological history of the universe, and might produce gravitational waves that can be searched for with future gravitational-wave detectors.”

It’s always been my fascination to explore the deeper perennial questions that make up our current collective paradigms. As we understand more about the nature of the reality, the cosmos, and our relationship to it, we in essence are developing a greater understand of who we are.

My research over the years has taught me that many of the mainstream assumptions we make about ourselves and our world are likely false. Things like “consciousness originates in the brain” or “our consciousness cannot affect things non-locally” or “that the universe is random, and human consciousness cannot impact it.” From the many studies I’ve read exploring these subjects, the basic assumptions of modern materialist science simply don’t hold water when considering hundreds of studies telling a different story.

When you consider the paradigm shift that comes in realizing that our human consciousness may in fact have the ability to affect things non locally, something seen through hundreds of ‘intention experiments’ rigorously studied around the world, one has to think “what is the true nature of our reality and who we are? Are we a lot more extraordinary than we have been led to believe? Do our thoughts, intentions, and emotions have a greater impact on our lives than we realize? How might these changes in understanding who we are shift the way we live our lives?

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A few years ago researchers discovered that memory can be transferred between, in this case, snails. The research changed the standard theory of memory and thoughts about how the brain remembers.

  • Reflect On:

    How much do we have yet to discover? Are we even physical beings? Could memories be stored beyond the physical world or what we can perceive with our senses? Can our we change our biology with our thoughts, feelings and emotions?

Animal testing is extremely heartbreaking. All beings in my opinion, are intelligent, emotional, and have the ability to feel deeply. All life on this planet is so similar in so many ways. These days, living life forms are bred for experimentation and consumption, this not only harms the being in what some would perceive as an extreme act of cruelty, but in many cases it’s harming the integrity of our planet when it comes to environmental issues and human health as well. This is why I am always very conflicted when presenting information that’s discovered through some type of ‘testing’ that’s done on another being. There are other ways scientists can conduct studies without the use of live life forms.

The last time I was conflicted about sharing this type of information was when scientists injected aluminum into animals, mimicking the childhood vaccine schedule, to see what the difference between injected and ingested aluminum was and where it ends up in the body. You can read more about that topic here.

Theodora Capaldo is president of the New England Anti-Vivisection Society. Founded in 1895, NEAVS is a Boston-based, national animal advocacy organization dedicated to ending the use of animals in research, testing and science education. Through research, outreach, education, legislation, and policy change, NEAVS advocates for replacing animals with modern alternatives that are ethically, humanely and scientifically superior. It’s one of many organizations bringing alternatives to light. It’s a big time bioethics issue, and I just wanted to mention this before getting into the subject matter at hand.

What Happened: This may be old information to some, but I recently came across it. In 2018 a team of researchers successfully transplanted memories in snails by transferring a form of genetic information called RNA from one snail into another. The snails were trained to develop a response to a mild electric shock to their tails, after these shocks were administered the snails’ defensive withdrawal reflex – where the snails contract or curl up to protect themselves from harm – became more pronounced. Yes, again, this is extremely cruel, the thought of inflicting any type of pain or fear response in another living being is heartbreaking. But that’s just my opinion.

The snails exhibited a defensive contraction lasting about 50 seconds. The researchers extracted RNA from the nervous systems of the snails that had been shocked and injected the material into the snails that had not been shocked. RNA’s main role, from what we know (and there is a lot that we don’t know) is to serve as a messenger inside of cells, it carries protein-making instructions from DNA. When the RNA was injected into the unshocked snails, the snails also had the same type of response as shocked snails for an extended period of time after a soft touch, something they weren’t doing before. They were reacting to something that had never even happened to them. Control snails that received injections of RNA from snails that had not received shocks did not exhibit a response for as long.

It’s as if we transferred a memory. – Professor, Integrative Biology and PhysiologyNeurobiology at UCLA (source)

The researchers also showed that Aplysia sensory neurons in Petri dishes that had been shocked were more excitable if they were exposed to RNA from the shocked snails. Exposure to RNA from snails that had never been shocked did not cause the cells to become more excitable.

The results, said Glanzman, suggest that memories may be stored within the nucleus of neurons, where RNA is synthesized and can act on DNA to turn genes on and off. He said he thoughts memory storage involved these epigenetic changes – changes in the activity of genes and not in the DNA sequences that make up those genes – that are mediated by RNA (source)

It’s also interesting to note that Michael Levin at Tufts has replicated McConnell’s experiments on headless worms under more controlled settings.

Glanzman said one of McConnell’s students, Al Jacobson, demonstrated the transfer of memories between flatworms via RNA injections, coincidentally while an assistant professor at UCLA. The work was published in Nature in 1966 but Jacobsen never received tenure, perhaps because of doubts about his findings. The experiment was, however, replicated in rats shortly afterward. (source)

Another example,

Steve Ramirez, a 24-year-old doctoral student at the time, placed the mouse in a small metal box with a black plastic floor. Instead of curiously sniffing around, though, the animal instantly froze in terror, recalling the experience of receiving a foot shock in that same box. It was a textbook fear response, and if anything, the mouse’s posture was more rigid than Ramirez had expected. Its memory of the trauma must have been quite vivid.

Which was amazing, because the memory was bogus: The mouse had never received an electric shock in that box. Rather, it was reacting to a false memory that Ramirez and his MIT colleague Xu Liu had planted in its brain. (source)

What Does This Tell Us? Can Living Organisms Transfer Memory?  Yes, we already know that living organisms can transfer memory. For example, a Nature Neuroscience study published several years ago shows mice trained to avoid a smell passed their aversion on to their children as well as their grandchildren. This study dealt with phobia and anxiety research, as the animals were trained to fear a smell similar to cherry blossom. The researchers then looked at the mice’s sperm and found that the section of DNA responsible for sensitivity to the cherry blossom scent was much more active in the sperm. As a result, the offspring were “extremely sensitive” to cherry blossom and would avoid the scent despite never having experienced it in their lives. “The experience of a parent, even before conceiving, markedly influence both structure and function in the nervous system of subsequent generations,” the report concluded.

Research has since showed that ‘memories’ and behaviours may actually be passed down 14 generations.

This is very important, and it suggests that a number of ‘memories’ can be passed down from our previous generations, including fear, anxiety, trauma, perhaps susceptibility to substances like alcohol for example, and much more. This opens up a wide plethora of discussions when it comes to human behaviour in general.

What’s more important to recognize is that what’s encoded into our DNA and into our genes also has the ability to be changed using the power of our own mind. There is a lot of evidence emerging suggesting that thoughts, feelings and emotions can change our DNA. This also corroborates with the research posted above given the fact that emotions, like fear, are used. So my question is, what happens when the organism overcomes that fear, and does not react in the same way? What happens when it makes a conscious choice to perceive events in a different manner?

Imagine what love, peace and other “positive” emotions can do. If we can code fear, anxiety and trauma into our DNA and pass them on, can an organsm change that by changing themselves within and training themselves to experience more “joyful” type of experiences and/or mind/heart state?  Scientists have shown how the feeling of gratitude, for example, can literally change the structure of the human brain.

According to the HeartMath Institute,

The power of intentional thoughts and emotions goes beyond theory at the HeartMath Institute. In a study, researchers have tested this idea and proven its veracity.

HeartMath researchers have gone so far as to show that physical aspects of DNA strands could be influenced by human intention. The article, Modulation of DNA Conformation by Heart-Focused Intention – McCraty, Atkinson, Tomasino, 2003 – describes experiments that achieved such results.

For example, an individual holding three DNA samples was directed to generate heart coherence – a beneficial state of mental, emotional and physical balance and harmony – with the aid of a HeartMath technique that utilizes heart breathing and intentional positive emotions. The individual succeeded, as instructed, to intentionally and simultaneously unwind two of the DNA samples to different extents and leave the third unchanged.

“The results provide experimental evidence to support the hypothesis that aspects of the DNA molecule can be altered through intentionality,” the article states. “The data indicate that when individuals are in a heart-focused, loving state and in a more coherent mode of physiological functioning, they have a greater ability to alter the conformation of DNA.

“Individuals capable of generating high ratios of heart coherence were able to alter DNA conformation according to their intention. … Control group participants showed low ratios of heart coherence and were unable to intentionally alter the conformation of DNA.”

As far as memory goes, perhaps they are not even completely a product of our physical make-up? Who is to say that human consciousness, for example, resides in the brain? Perhaps there is a non-physical aspect, or a place we cannot perceive with our senses where memories and experiences are stored. After all, memories themselves, despite having physical characteristics as exemplified in this study, are in a sense themself non physical things. DNA has also been shown to have some non-physical aspects, you can read about one of many examples here.

The mind-body connection is also gaining traction,  As Garth Cook from Scientific American points out:

A growing body of scientific research suggests that our mind can play an important role in healing our body — or in staying healthy in the first place. . . There are now several lines of research suggesting that our mental perception of the world constantly informs and guides our immune system in a way that makes us better able to respond to future threats. That was a sort of ‘aha’ moment for me — where the idea of an entwined mind and body suddenly made more scientific sense than an ephemeral consciousness that’s somehow separated from our physical selves.

The mind body connection suggests that we can change our biology through belief, which suggests we can break the cycle of ‘negative’ aspects we’ve inherited through epigenetics. These types of interventions require a shift in human consciousness, a shift in perception.

Suggested reading: The Biology of Belief.

When it comes to learning about the mind-body connection and its relationship to our health, it can be difficult to choose a starting place amongst the vast and growing body of research; one of the best places to start, however, is the placebo effect, which demonstrates that the mind can create physiological changes in the body. Neuroscientist Fabrizio Benedetti explains:

There isn’t just one placebo effect, but many. Placebo painkillers can trigger the release of natural pain-relieving chemicals called endorphins. Patients with Parkinson’s disease respond to placebos with a flood of dopamine. Fake oxygen, given to someone at altitude, has been shown to cut levels of neurotransmitters called prostaglandins (which dilate blood vessels, among other things, and are responsible for many of the symptoms of altitude sickness.

This goes to show that based on our thoughts alone and how we perceive our environment, we can alter our biology.

Then there is the the idea that thoughts and human intention can alter physical systems. If thoughts can alter physical systems imagine what they can do to our own biology as well as the body of another. For more information this, you can read the publication titled “Distant Healing Intention Therapies: An Overview of the Scientific Evidence.”

There are also multiple credible reports of mind/matter interaction beyond the quantum scale, where we already know it exists. You read about one example here.

The Takeaway: At the end of the day, the evidence showing that our ‘memories’ can be transferred down many generations is quite strong. What seems to be left out of the mainstream conversation is the importance of our perceptions. Our environment, yes, plays a key role in shaping our biology, but we can begin to counteract the effect of our environment, especially if it is ‘negative,’ by changing our perception of that environment. We are not bound by the genetics we inherit from our ancestors, we can actively change them. If mice are trained to fear the smell of a certain substance, for example, yes their offspring also fear it but they are not doomed to that destiny. The mouse that can expand its consciousness, think, and realize that there is no reason to be afraid is the one that then changes their DNA.

The science of human consciousness, also known as non material science, is advancing quite rapidly, and it goes to show that if more of us can operate, or at least make an effort to operate from a place of peace within we can truly make the world a better place as well as transform our biology. The term “change comes from within” comes in many forms. If you look at the modern history of the human race, although there are many beautiful aspects and memories, there is also a lot of trauma. As a human collective we still have a lot of work to do on ourselves, and I believe we are currently going through that process and I believe it’s being triggered by the fact that more people are having a big change in how they perceive their environment.
