Reading is incredible. It sparks our imaginations, enhances our critical thinking skills, improves our vocabulary, exercises our brain, and much more. While our love for reading in general will never die, it does seem that, these days, its popularity has waned significantly. Many kids today, and plenty of adults too, can’t seem to wrap their heads around sitting and doing ‘nothing’ for any extended amount of time when they could instead experience new and intense sensory information every few seconds instead. You’d be hard-pressed to find a child (or teen) that won’t throw a fit the moment you take their cell phone or iPad away from them, and it’s not illogical to wonder if children today are even using their brains; surely the constant TV watching and time spent on social media doesn’t challenge their minds in the way that a book can. Whether you’re an adult or a child, reading is definitely a good idea; the key is to find something that interests you. The rest is easy.

The list of books below represents just a few that I’m sure CE readers will enjoy, so have a look if you’d like to add something new and exciting to your reading list.

Supernormal: Science, Yoga & The Evidence For Extraordinary Psychic Abilities

“As with Dr. Radin’s previous work, this book is thoroughly researched, clearly written, and immensely engaging. Once again, he has pushed the boundaries of religion, science, psychology, and philosophy. Invaluable reading!”

– Dr. Michael Bloch, University of San Francisco

Above is just one of many great reviews of this book. Dean Radin, the author, is the Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences. He has published a number of papers on the science of parapsychology. Topics within this realm include distant healing, remote viewing, precognition, and near-death experiences, among others.

The book examines the science behind these extraordinary abilities, and whether yoga and meditation can unleash our inherent supernormal mental powers. It touches on several different topics, from ancient teachings of mystics and the theories of quantum physics to successful experiments in the field. Radin offers powerful evidence which confirms that sometimes fact is indeed stranger than fiction, and sometimes more wonderful than we could ever have imagined.

Altered Genes, Twisted Truth: How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverted Science, Corrupted Government, and Systematically Deceived the Public

This is an excellent book and very relevant today, given how many countries around the world have now banned genetically modified products. It was written by Steven M. Druker, J.D, who is the Executive Director at the Alliance for Bio-Integrity.

The book has captured the attention of hundreds of scientists, including Joseph Cummins, Ph.D., a Professor Emeritus of Genetics at Western University in London, Ontario, who raved about the book: “Altered Genes, Twisted Truth will stand as a landmark. It should be required reading in every university biology course.”

David Schubert, Ph.D, a molecular biologist and the Head of Cellular Neurobiology at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, agrees with him:

This incisive and insightful book is truly outstanding. Not only is it well-reasoned and scientifically solid, it’s a pleasure to read – and a must-read. Through its masterful marshalling of facts, it dispels the cloud of disinformation that has misled people into believing that GE foods have been adequately tested and don’t entail abnormal risk.

Stephan Naylor, PhD, CEO and Chairman of MaiHealth Inc, and formerly a professor of Biology and Molecular Biology and Pharmacology at the Mayo Clinic for 10 years, offers further praise:

Steven Druker’s meticulously documented, well-crafted, and spellbinding narrative should serve as a clarion call to all of us. In particular, his chapter detailing the deadly epidemic of 1989-90 that was linked with genetically engineered food supplements was especially significant. I and my Mayo Clinic colleagues were active participants in the attempt to identify the cause of this epidemic. Druker provides a comprehensive analysis of all the evidence and also presents new findings from our work. Overall his discussion of this tragic event, as well as its ominous implications, is the most comprehensive, evenly balanced and accurate account that I have read

As you can see it has some great reviews, which is refreshing to see considering that mainstream media never shares this side of the story.

UFOs for the 21st Century Mind: A Fresh Guide to an Ancient Mystery

This book was written by Richard Dolan, one of the world’s leading researchers and writers on the subject of UFOs. He also authored UFOs and the National Security State, and both books are ground-breaking works which together provide the most factually complete and accessible narrative of the UFO subject available anywhere. Dolan co-authored a speculative book about the future as well, called A.D. After Disclosure, which was the first-ever analysis not only of how UFO secrecy might end, but also of the all-important question: what happens next?

Dolan believes UFOs constitute the greatest mystery of our time.

UFOs for the 21st Century Mind has received incredible reviews. Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell called the book monumental, and Hal Puthoff, one of the chief scientists involved in the U.S. Government’s Stargate program, said that it’s a must read for serious students in the field.

Prior to his interest in UFOs, Richard completed his graduate work at the University of Rochester, where he studied U.S. Cold War strategy, European history, and international diplomacy. Before that, he had studied at Alfred University and Oxford University, and was a finalist for a Rhodes scholarship.

For beginners and experienced researchers alike, historian Richard Dolan covers the full range of this incredibly complex topic in this book. He offers insights into everything connected to UFOs: ancient aliens, modern encounters, abductions, channellers, the politics and cover-up, the black budget world, the bizarre science, the social dimensions (YouTube and Facebook), the future, and much more.

In addition, as one of UFOlogy’s pioneers in the deep analysis of the cover-up, he offers an original perspective on how it all works and why the cover-up is bound to end. He also writes on the nature of contact, speculating on who these “Others” might be. Finally, Dolan takes the reader through the “weird science” of UFOs, covering everything from propulsion and spacetime to consciousness and more.

The topic of Unidentified Flying Objects has gained a tremendous amount of popularity in recent years, especially after their existence was verified by dozens of governments in documents released via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and by academicians and high-ranking military and political personnel. Keep in mind that “UFO” does not mean extraterrestrial, but when you have objects at very high altitudes performing maneuvers that defy our known laws of physics, it’s easy to see why some people make that connection.

To see what happens when the military tracks a UFO on radar, you can read THIS article we published on the subject.

HERE is another great example that comes from the Canadian Air Force.

The Secret Teachings Of All Ages

Manly P. Hall published this book in 1928, shortly after he became a respected lecturer and interpreter of ancient writings. It dives into a number of different topics, but mostly focuses on philosophy, occult philosophy, and the teachings of secret societies. He himself was a member of the Rosicrucian Fellowship and a 33rd degree Mason.

Below are just a few of the rave reviews he has received.

“A masterful summation of the esoteric teachings of the ages.”

– Huston Smith, Ph.D., Author.

“Into this volume has been compressed the quintessence of a colossal learning. It is a living human document, pulsating with the mental and spiritual vibrations of a profound thinker who takes knowledge for his province and reduces whole libraries to a single tome.”

– George Barron, Curator of the De Young Museum of San Francisco

“Simply put, this is the most beautiful and complete occult book ever published. It represents a lifetime of research into the mythology, symbolism, and magical practices of countless cultures. From the secrets of Isis to the teachings of mystic Christianity, nearly every occult dogma imaginable is represented here. This is the definitive guide to secret societies, famous figures, and more.”

– Liewellyn New Times

“Manly Hall’s great work is a classic in the world’s literature. It will guide historians, philosophers, and lay seekers of esoteric wisdom for centuries.”

– Edgar Mitchell, Sc.D., Apollo 14 astronaut

Fingerprints Of The Gods

So much of what we know about our ancient history has been lost; we are essentially a species with amnesia. Whether it be giant skeletons or remnants of Atlantis, there is much evidence suggesting that the story of mankind might be far older than we think. In his book, Hancock presents strong arguments for this view.

Below is a summary of this work:

In Fingerprints of the Gods, Hancock embarks on a worldwide quest to put together all the pieces of the vast and fascinating jigsaw of mankind’s hidden past. In ancient monuments as far apart as Egypt’s Great Sphinx, the strange Andean ruins of Tiahuanaco, and Mexico’s awe-inspiring Temples of the Sun and Moon, he reveals not only the clear fingerprints of an as-yet-unidentified civilization of remote antiquity, but also startling evidence of its vast sophistication, technological advancement, and evolved scientific knowledge.

The Afterlife Experiments: Breakthrough Scientific Evidence of Life After Death

Gary E. Swartz is a professor of psychology, medicine, neurology, psychiatry, and surgery at the University of Arizona. He is also the Director of its Laboratory for Advances in Consciousness and Health.

In this book, he examines the question of life after death by asking well-known mediums to take part in a series of experiments aimed at either disproving or proving the existence of an afterlife. The book includes details of “stringently” monitored experiments in which mediums attempt to contact dead friends and relatives of “sitters,” who were masked from view and never spoke, depriving the mediums of any cues or hints.

The results shook researchers and onlookers, revealing information about a son’s suicide, what a deceased father wanted to say about his last days in a coma, the transformation of a man’s lifelong doubts about the afterlife, and, most amazing of all, a forecast of a beloved spouse’s death.

It is simply fascinating, and stands as a fantastic example of science trying to examine a mysterious phenomenon which can at least be observed, if not explained. Unfortunately, when science examines something it cannot explain, it most often dismisses it as untrue.

Return To Life: Extraordinary Cases Of Children Who Remember Past Lives

For the last fifteen years, Jim Tucker has traveled the country meeting families, hearing stories like these, and trying to determine if the children’s memories are valid. Continuing a fifty year research project at the University of Virginia involving children from all over the world, he decided to focus on cases in the United States, where parents would not expect their children to say such things.

This topic has been studied by numerous scientists who belong to various academic institutions from all over the world, so in the interest of a short on-line read, choosing which studies/examples to share can be a difficult process, given how many of them exist. Worldwide, more than twenty-five hundred specific cases have been examined in great detail, more so where these notions are more culturally accepted (in the East), although cases have been documented on every single continent. For this reason, if you are interested in this topic from a scientific standpoint, we suggest you further your own research beyond what you read here.

A typical reincarnation case is where subjects start reporting a past life experience. One common denominator of these cases is that they all involve children, with the average age being 35 months when subjects begin to report their experiences. The experiences reported are often detailed and extensive, and Tucker points out that many of these children show strong emotional involvement when speaking about their claims, some cry and beg to be taken to what they say is their previous family. Others show intense anger.

“The subjects usually stop making their past-life statements by the age of six to seven, and most seem to lose the purported memories. That is the age when children start school and begin having more experiences in the current life, as well as when they tend to lose their early childhood memories.” (source)

One example Tucker describes, an American case, is of a child named Sam Taylor, who was a year and a half old when:

“He looked up as his father was changing his diaper and said, ‘When I was your age, I used to change your diapers.’ He began talking more about having been his grandfather. He eventually told details of his grandfather’s life that his parents felt certain he could not have learned through normal means, such as the fact that his grandfather’s sister had been murdered and that his grandmother had used a food processor to make milkshakes for his grandfather every day at the end of his life.” (source)

Hidden In Plain Sight: Beyond The X Files

The latest and most in-depth book on underground bases by Dr. Richard Sauder, the world’s premier investigator of underground bases and tunnels. Using a combination of archival research, on-the-scene investigation, and first-hand interviews, Sauder takes the reader into a clandestine world that is under the ground and under the ocean. It is a world that we are supposed to think is impossible, and yet — after reviewing the evidence — seems all-too-likely. Dr. Sauder asks, and often answers, such questions as:

– Where are the secret underground bases?
– How far down do they go?
– What leaks are coming from the classified world?
– What has the U.S. Navy planned for beneath the ocean floor?
– Are there bases beneath the ocean?
– What’s going on beneath Washington, D.C.?
– Are there high-speed, underground maglev systems?
– What is the connection with UFOs and the alien question?

This is a book that truly goes where no other book has gone before. It is a must-read for any and all who are seeking to understand the full magnitude of the Matrix-like reality of our civilization.

The Secret Military Remote Perception Skill Anyone Can Learn: The Essential Guide To Remote Viewing

This book was written by Paul H. Smith, PhD., and an army veteran who was involved in this program for several years.

Did you know that the CIA, in conjunction with Stanford university, were involved in the scientific study of parapsychological phenomena that lasted more than two decades? Part of this program was examining the efficacy of ‘remote viewing,’ supposedly for intelligence gathering purposes. (source)

Remote viewing is the ability of a person to describe a remote geographical location up to several hundred thousand kilometers from their actual physical location.

In these experiments, multiple individuals were able to describe distinct objects that were located in a separate room, and at other remote physical locations from where there body was not.

 Parapsychology: A Handbook For The 21st Century

This is the first book in more than 40 years to provide a comprehensive scientific overview of research in the field of parapsychology, explaining what we know and don’t know about so-called psi phenomena, such as telepathy, precognition or psychokinesis. Contributors evaluate the evidence for these phenomena, accounting for factors such as selective memory, wish fulfillment and incorrect methods or analyses, in some cases offering psychological, physical and biological theories.

31 chapters by 37 experts including:

» Implicit Physical Psi: The Global Consciousness Project (Roger D. Nelson)
» Macro-Psychokinesis (Stephen E. Braude)
» Psi and Psychophysiology (Dean Radin and Alan Pierce)
» Psi in Everyday Life: Nonhuman and Human (Rupert Sheldrake)
» Reincarnation: Field Studies and Theoretical Issues Today (Antonia Mills and Jim B. Tucker)
» Statistical Guidelines for Empirical Studies (Patrizio E. Tressoldi and Jessica Utts)

Former CIA Officer & ITNJ Chief Counsel Shares Reality Of Elite Child Trafficking

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Child trafficking goes far beyond the sexual abuse of children. As Robert David Steele explains, it deals with torture, ritual abuse, organ harvesting and much more. It's a big issue that needs more awareness, and the ITNJ is taking action.

  • Reflect On:

    How did we get to the point where our 'leaders' in the most powerful positions are involved in such things? Is it appropriate to continue having them occupy high-ranking positions? Should we be supporting them? Processing our emotions is key.

Robert David Steele is a former Marine, CIA case officer and the co-founder of the US Marine Corps Intelligence Activity. His mission has been to spread the use of Open Source Intelligence (OSINT), and he’s written a number of handbooks on OSINT for NATO, the DIA and US Special Operations Forces.

He has been working in these fields for decades, and definitely knows a thing or two about what’s going on at the deepest levels of government and the military industrial complex. These are the people we have to start listening to for truth. He won’t get an interview on CNN, that’s for sure.

Lately, he’s been one of several credible people from ‘within’ creating awareness and speaking out about issues that mainstream media continues to ignore, who sometimes goes as far to label as a ‘conspiracy theory,’ no matter how much evidence sits behind the claims. One of these issues is child trafficking and abuse, a topic that’s gained a lot of attention since the 2016 American election as high ranking members of the global elite have been implicated in such activity, and have been implicated in such activity for a very long time.

Only now are we seeing it creep up into the mainstream narrative, despite the fact that they continually try and shut it down. Why? Because the owners and shareholders of these networks have been implicated in the activity discussed in this article.

Beyond Simple Abuse

In the video below, Robert gives a very brief outline of the issue, and how child trafficking goes far beyond the abuse of children. It goes into organ harvesting, children being bred for ritual abuse, born without a birth certificate, tortured, enslaved, mind-controlled and a much more.

Again, this information is hitting the mainstream like it never has before, one example would be the fact that an NBC news report implicated Hillary Clinton in covering up a massive pedophile ring in the heart of the State Department, another would be multiple ex-high ranking political officials claiming that both the Clinton’s engage in sex with minors, pointing towards their close relationship with Jeffrey Epstein (who also has Royal Family connections).

Epstein is now a registered sex offender. When it comes to the Vatican, there are always disturbing acts going on. Right now, the Pope’s right-hand man, George Pell, is in court for sexual assault, and a massive pedophile ring has been exposed where hundreds of boys were tortured and sexually abused, Pope Benedict’s brother was at the forefront of that controversy.

As far as the military industrial complex goes, Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney grilled Donald Rumsfeld on DynCorp about a private military contractor with ties to the trafficking of women and children. Years later, a top U.S. General who was the liaison between DynCorp and the U.S. Military was implicated in the sexual assault of teenaged girls. The list goes on and on, and it’s a long one. Oh yeah, let’s not forget about PizzaGate…

Individuals from within governments like former U.S. State Department official, Steve Pieczeni, have also been very outspoken on the subject of elite pedophile rings, and who is involved.

As Steele mentions below, ‘powerful’ organizations, like intelligence agencies for example, are not all ‘bad.’ He claims that they are filled with 90 percent good people, with good hearts and good intentions, and that the 10 percent that controls these areas are wrapped up in in-humane activity, like child trafficking.

Give the video below a listen to learn more, and you can check out more testimony from the International Tribunal on Natural Justice from others like Robert, police officers, MK Ultra survivors and many more who have knowledge of such activity.

Why Are We Learning About This?

This information can seem ‘dark’ and ‘grim,’ but how are we helping the situation if we completely ignore it and pretend it isn’t happening? It’s one thing to present this information with great judgment and anger, pushing us into a state of being and emotion that keeps us locked into lower frequencies, but it’s another thing all together to present it as  neutral facts that we can become aware of so we can begin to make way for more survivors, whistleblowers and witnesses come forward to share their testimony.

When this happens, action starts to take place, like what we are seeing at the ITNJ. So, if you want to know what to do with this information, share it, and help be the voice for those who still don’t have one. Process any emotions that come from learning this information. This is how we will move through the states of consciousness that project a world that keeps this type of stuff occurring. Evolving beyond the need for it, is often about switching our perspective about it and processing the emotions.

Aerospace Insider on Aliens: ‘We Don’t Have To Go Anywhere To Find Them, They’re Already Here’

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Robert Bigelow, founder of the Bigelow Aerospace Corporation lets the world know that he has knowledge that we are not alone, and that we are currently being visited by intelligent extraterrestrials.

  • Reflect On:

    Bigelow is just one person, but he is joined by hundreds of others with impressive credentials. These people have been telling the world that we are not alone for years, in a very serious manner. Why do you think this is considered a 'conspiracy?'

“We have, indeed, been contacted – perhaps even visited – by extraterrestrial beings, and the US government, in collusion with the other national powers of the Earth, is determined to keep this information from the general public.” – Victor Marchetti, former special assistant to the Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (Second Look, Volume 1, No 7, Washington, DC, May 1979)

If you’re paying attention to what’s happening in the world, it’s OK if you feel like Alice in Wonderland. For years humanity has become comfortable with their enslavement, prior to today, a large portion of the population was content with the human experience, simply entering into the system, trying to put food on the table and chase higher ‘material’ status, among other things, without ever questioning what is really happening. All of us have been engulfed in our own lives when the world is calling for us to be concerned about others.

Today, it’s a different story. There’s a massive shift in consciousness that’s occurring, and part of that shift is questioning the human experience and the systems we’ve chosen to surround ourselves with. Revelations are now coming forth in all areas that surround every aspect of human life; health and finance, to education, politics, entertainment etc… It’s quite clear that our world is not what we’ve all been presented with, and that there are aspects of reality that we should really start paying attention to if we want to grow, move forward, and break out of the cycle we currently find ourselves in. We can’t change our world if we continue to do the same things over and over again without questioning what’s happening, and why it’s happening. There are people in all fields coming forth to ‘blow the whistle,’ and witness testimony is backed up by credible evidence, which gives these whistle-blowers confidence to come forward and say what they say. Edward Snowden is one of many great examples, prior to him, mass surveillance was considered another ‘conspiracy theory.’

One big revelation hitting the mainstream right now is the fact that we are not alone, and that intelligent extraterrestrial life-forms have been visiting our planet for a long time, and still do. As unbelievable as this may sound, it comes from the highest ranking military personnel, academicians, intelligence agents, politicians, and private contractors from within the military industrial complex. There are hundreds of these people who keep telling the world that we are being visited and that governments around the world have had evidence that some of these ‘UFOs’ are indeed extraterrestrial.

“Yes, it’s both. It’s both literally, physically happening to a degree; and it’s also some kind of psychological, spiritual experience occurring and originating perhaps in another dimension. And so the phenomenon stretches us, or it asks us to stretch to open to realities that are not simply the literal physical world, but to extend to the possibility that there are other unseen realities from which our consciousness, our, if you will, learning processes over the past several hundred years have closed us off.”
– Dr. John E. Mack, a Harvard University psychologist and Pulitzer prize winner (source)

The Credibility of These Sources

The sources are the most credible in the world, the only issue is, the topic. No matter how much evidence for a given phenomenon, and no matter how obvious its reality, if it goes against the human mind and what we are willing to accept, it is usually ignored or greeted with ridicule. We see the same thing with science, which has largely become dogma, the downright denial of parapsychology (telepathy, healing at a distance, etc) when it has more statistically significant results than the science used to approve most of our drugs (source). It’s called cognitive dissonance… We believe what we choose to believe, and humanity is currently in the process of shedding some belief systems in order to accept new realities that once did not fit the frame, and thus were ignored and ridiculed.

One of the latest ‘whistle-blowers’ to speak openly about their knowledge about extraterrestrial visitation is Robert Bigelow, founder of the Bigelow Aerospace Corporation. Bigelow has done work for multiple international space agencies and is currently in agreements with multiple nations to build space habitats and space stations.

Before we get to his comments, it’s important to let the reader know what type of circles Bigelow is currently ‘in’ with regards to space and the extraterrestrial/UFO question in general. Bigelow’s comments were made approximately a year ago now, but not a lot of information was given as to the type of connections this person has, if it isn’t already obvious as being one of the leading aerospace contractors in the world…

Towards the end of last year, an article titled “Glowing Auras and ‘Black Money’: The Pentagon’s Mysterious U.F.O Program” put to rest the question of whether or not UFOs are real. CEO Tom Delonge, along with several other people, including a recently retired director of Lockheed Aerospace, Steve Justice, a Department of Defense Scientist, Hal Puthoff, a senior intelligence officer from the CIA, Jim Semivan, a Director of National Intelligence, Louis Elizondo, the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence in the Clinton and Bush Administrations, Christopher Mellon, and many more are all releasing official video footage and electro-optical data (radar trackings, returns) and letting the world know that these things (UFOs) are real.


I go into more detail regarding the latest updates in an article I published previously:

The US Government Just Admitted To Recovering Materials From UFOs – Here Are The Latest Updates


Multiple people from within this new initiative have expressed that they believe there is an extraterrestrial intelligence behind the operation of some of this craft.

This movement brought to light the Pentagon’s UFO program (AATIP) for aerial threats, one program out of what could be many, according to Hal Puthoff. You can view the entire team and their credentials here.

The main hub for all of this recent and future ‘official mainstream’ UFO disclosure is the To The Stars Academy, it’s the organization that’s releasing all of this information.

Where does Bigelow come in? Well, as the New York Times article points out:

The shadowy program – parts of it remain classified – began in 2007, and initially it was largely funded at the request of Harry Reid, the Nevada Democrat who was the Senate majority leader at the time and who has long had an interest in space phenomena. Most of the money went to an aerospace research company run by a billionaire entrepreneur and longtime friend of Mr. Reid’s, Robert Bigelow, who is currently working with NASA to produce expandable craft for humans to use in space.

Bigelow is part of the team at To The Stars Academy, and here’s what he had to say about extraterrestrials,

“I am absolutely convinced, that’s all there is to it. There has been and is an existing presence, an ET presence.”

He also stated that we “don’t have to go anywhere” to find extraterrestrial life, that we can find it here on Earth, implying that they’re already here, walking among us, and based on my research, are already working with multiple governments.

How many races are we talking about? Perhaps hundreds, maybe even thousands of races have been catalogued by our governments worldwide.

For decades, as General Carlos Cavero told the world in 1979, “everything has been in a process of investigation both in the United States and in Spain, as well as the rest of the world.” On a global scale, “the nations of the world are currently working together in the investigation of the UFO phenomenon” and there is “an international exchange of data.” (Via Richard Donal’s UFOs for the 21st Century Mind)

A couple of years ago, longtime Bigelow Aerospace executive Mike Gold, who’s now director of Washington operations for Space Systems Loral, was asked about how Bigelow Aerospace’s’ involvement with UFOs.

He gave an intriguing answer, with some interesting expressions on his face. He mentions how he finds the subjects matter “very interesting,” and also mentions a congressional hearing where scientists emphasized that the universe is teeming with life. He goes on to state that he “cannot comment” on what Bigelow Aerospace does with UFO reports, but glad that “somebody is taking the reports because these are important issues that deserves serious attention.”  (source)

Clearly, we now know that this is the case!

“An extraterrestrial influence is investigating our planet. Something is monitoring the planet and they are monitoring it very cautiously.” —  2008 Presidential Candidate, Mike Gravel (source)(source)

People Are Taking Placebo Pills To Deal With Health Problems & It’s Working

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    People are now involved in studies where they are told they are taking a placebo medication, and it in fact is one, and they are being healed. The mainstream is finally picking up on mind-body connection.

  • Reflect On:

    Is this the true power of our mind? Our consciousness? When we want to get better deep down, do we not make that decision in our mind and thus heal? What does this say about harmful and side effect-ridden medications?

An article published in Scientific American is a clear marker for showing just how much the mainstream has caught on to the fact that the mind-body connection is much more powerful than we previously thoughtand could explain why more and more people are gravitating towards alternative forms of medicine.

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. – Dr. Bruce Lipton, from The Biology of Belief

Health is one area where we can clearly see how our mind is connected to physical material reality, and how non-material science is going to play an even more important role as we move through 2018 and beyond. It’s not just health though, research in the areas of neuroscience and quantum physics is also showing how vital our thoughts, perceptions, emotions and feelings (factors associated with consciousness) are with regards to understanding the true nature of our reality.

Mind influencing matter is no longer something that’s being trivialized. There are even declassified intelligence agency documents and peer-reviewed studies that have been published that clearly show an effect at both the quantum level, and the classical mechanical level as well. If you want to learn more about this, a great place to start is with the Institute of Noetic Sciences, founded by Apollo 14 Astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell.

It’s really no surprise to see this topic pop up all over mainstream media outlets, it’s a common occurrence these days. When something so spectacular gains attention and becomes so obvious, it’s almost impossible to ignore, despite the fact that its discovery has been around for decades.

Open-Label Placebo Experiment

Time magazine recently published an article about a woman (now a 71-year old medical assistant) and her struggle with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). She tried everything, from drugs to changing her diet. It was a horrible way to live, she told the Times, as she was often huddled in a corner and keeled over in pain. It’s something that can really debilitate your life. Approximately ten years ago today, she decided to enroll herself into a study, a first of its kind clinical trial, one where the patient would be receiving a placebo pill. The pill had no active ingredients, and she felt “deflated,” that she got her hopes up for nothing.

Three weeks later, after taking the pill twice daily, Buonanno (the 71-year old medical assistant) was symptom free. She had never gone so long without an attack. “I didn’t have a clue what was going on,” she says. “I still don’t.”

The placebo effect is a non-therapeutic treatment (like a sham pill), and it improves a patient’s physical condition. This has been documented for centuries. The interesting thing about the study the woman decided to participate in, is the fact that patients taking the placebo pill were well aware that they were taking a placebo. With traditional placebo studies, patients are made to believe that they are taking something that will benefit them and improve their condition.  In 2009, Harvard Medical School launched the first open-label placebo, where patients knew what they were taking, and they started with people who had IBS, including the 71- year old woman. As Time points out,

The findings were surprising. Nearly twice as many people in the trial who knowingly received placebo pills reported experiencing adequate symptom relief, compared with the people who received no treatment. Not only that but the men and women taking the placebo also doubled their rates of improvement to a point that was about equal to the effects of two IBS medications that were commonly used at the time.

The team of researchers, alongside a team at the Program in Placebo Studies and Therapeutic Encounter at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, have secured a $2.5 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to replicate the study mentioned above. So far, researchers have treated 270 patients and intend to treat approximately 100 more with IBV via their ongoing clinical trial.

How Is This Working?

Despite the fact that the Placebo effect has been documented for well over one-hundred years, experts still can’t pinpoint what underlies this mechanism. It seems quite simple to me: it’s consciousness and the basic biology of belief. Some people argue that that the human body does not respond to treatment, but instead, the ritual of treatment. The actual pill has no effect, so what else could it be? What’s interesting is that the effect is now demonstrated even when the person knows it’s just a placebo!

There is no money in the placebo, which is why we probably haven’t heard about it much, or not enough attention is paid to it. Today, it’s well recognized in modern medicine, doctors at the Houston Veterans Affairs Medical Center, for example, have shown that fake surgeries – slicing people’s knees open and sewing them back together without any treatment at all – provide the same improvements for people with osteoarthritis of the knee as real knee surgery.

Isn’t that remarkable?

Other Examples Of The Placebo Effect

Another example comes from a study published in 2002 by the New England Journal of Medicine which looked at surgery for patients with severe debilitating knee pain. It’s long been thought that there is no placebo effect observed in surgery, but this just isn’t true. This study divided people into three groups, for one group the surgeons saved the damaged cartilage in the knee. For another, they flushed out the knee joint by removing all of the material believed to be causing inflammation. The third group received a fake surgery, the patients were simply sedated and tricked into thinking that they actually had the surgery. All three groups went through the same rehab process, and the results were astonishing. The placebo group improved just as much as the other two groups who had the surgery.

The placebo effect should be the subject of major, funded research efforts. If medical researchers could figure out how to leverage the placebo effect, they would hand doctors an efficient, energy-based, side effect-free tool to treat disease. Energy healers say they already have such tools, but I am a scientist, and I believe the more we know about the science of the placebo, the better we’ll be able to use it in clinical settings. – Bruce Lipton, Ph.D (Taken from his book Biology of Belief – Highly recommended to learn more about this phenomenon)

A 2002 article published in the American Psychological Association’s Prevention & Treatment, conducted by University of Connecticut Psychology Professor Irving Kirsch and titled “The Emperor’s New Drugs,” made some more shocking discoveries (source)(source). Kirsch found that 80% of the effectiveness of antidepressants, as measured in clinical trials, could be attributed to the placebo effect. Kirsch even filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to get information on the clinical trials of the top antidepressants.

“The difference between the response of the drugs and the response of the placebo was less than two points on average on this clinical scale that goes from fifty to sixty points. That’s a very small difference, that difference is clinically meaningless,” Professor Kirsch explains. (source)

Studies examining non-physical healing go beyond the placebo. There are hundreds of studies examining the effect of human intention (the human mind) and how it can also alter physical material reality as well as our health. I go into more detail on these topics in the article linked below, so please feel free to check it out if interested!
