Although Western culture is beginning to acknowledge the true depth of the mind-body connection, psychosomatic ailments are widely misunderstood – and are consequently, often mistreated.
After working with thousands of people internationally, author and behavioural development expert, Evette Rose, has carefully tracked patterns of how this mind-body connection presents itself and has shared these patterns in a 722-page book called Metaphysical Anatomy. After an exciting interview with her, we learned a lot about the depths of the mind-body connection!
Your Body Is Trying to Communicate
Emotional and physical pain are forms of suffering that the body produces to make you aware of what isn’t currently serving you. For example: if you’re overworked, you’ll begin to feel tired, which is your body’s way of telling your mind that you need a break.
Under this same methodology, physical conditions that are unexplained by injury or illness are often rooted in emotional turmoil – if you feel overwhelmed, you may get an inexplicable headache. If the majority of North Americans have experienced “medically unexplained” pain in their lives, isn’t it time to ask ourselves what the true source of that pain is?
How are the Mind and Body Connected?
The mind and body are undeniably connected. In fact, they are one. Let’s look at the example of trauma to demonstrate this.
The human body stores trauma in several different ways. Traumatic experiences cause a release of neurochemicals such as cortisol and norepinephrine within the amygdala, hippocampus and prefrontal cortex.
People who experience extreme emotional trauma can actually trigger a permanent change in different areas of their brain as a result of these neurochemical imbalances. These neurochemical reactions are sent throughout our body, impacting our nervous system, heart-rate, breathing patterns and motor function.
An extension of this research brings us to psychosomatic pain. Since emotions, like stress, can measurably alter the physical brain, how is the mind able to harm or heal the body, and in what other ways can our emotions affect our bodies?
The Brain is Wired for Safety
When considering this question, it is important to remember that the human body inherently works to keep you “safe”. From a young age, we develop coping mechanisms that protect us from bad experiences and help us to move forward in life.
As we mature, however, our coping mechanisms can actually become misaligned with what we authentically want, creating internal conflict that can then be expressed as a form of psychosomatic pain – like headaches.
Imagine, for example, that you fell out of a tree as a child and broke your arm. Your mind then develops a fear of heights to protect you from getting yourself in a similar situation in the future. However, if as you grow up you decide you want to become a pilot, your outdated defense mechanisms may prevent you from living authentically and pursuing your passion. This lack of fulfillment could then manifest into migraines as you grow frustrated with your substitute job and could result in both physical pain and unhappiness or depression.
How Can We Move Beyond Mind-Body Limitations?
In this interview, Evette shares that one of the biggest challenges people face is change. We can become quite limited in our ability to align with our truth when the subconscious is innately resistant to change. It perpetuates what is learned at a young age, and often causes you to sabotage new goals and ideas if they are outside of what the subconscious is used to.
When you feel like your coping mechanisms may be kicking in, it is essential to ask yourself what your body is feeling, and what it is trying to tell you. Ask yourself if your mind is genuinely protecting you from something that is actually happening right now, or if you can trace it back to a past experience and old reactionary pattern. By doing this, you’ll be able to better identify what it is that is limiting you, and the ways in which your body is affected by the turmoil in your mind.
What You’ll Learn From Evette
As mentioned, Evette is a personal development expert, intuitive, international speaker and accomplished author. During this interview, Evette takes us through a guided body scan to discuss different psychosomatic causes of specific ailments.
You’ll learn about mind-body connection patterns, the profound enmeshment between our subconscious and physiology, the impact of epigenetics and how “identity overlap” plays a massive role in storing traumas in the body.
Why You Should Watch This Interview
Evette provides unique insight on how to heal emotional trauma, and how to better understand the relationship between your mind and body.
Her newest book, Metaphysical Anatomy, delves into further detail about what your body is trying to tell you, and contains incredibly insightful information that will help heal and connect to the deeper layers of yourself. Psychosomatic pain, at its core, is your body begging you to listen – and when you do, you’ll become your best, and most authentic self.
Russian Military Colonel Publishes An Article Claiming Human & Animal Telepathy Is 100 Percent Real
- 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.
“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.
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
- 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.
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.
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.
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
I go into a deeper discussion regarding non-physical reality within this article if you’d like to learn more: Scientists Call Out “Dark Matter” – Have We Been Wrong About It All Along?
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.
New Moon In Gemini: Inspiring Curiosity
We are having a New Moon in Gemini on June 3rd, 2019. It is initiating a 29.5-day Lunar cycle and a new wave of energy for the coming month, however, the astrological configurations mentioned in this article will be more prominent over the following two weeks. This cycle will peak with a Full Moon in Sagittarius on June 16th/17th.
We have been in Gemini season since May 21st with its ruler Mercury also in Gemini since the same day. As an Air sign it is socially and mentally oriented, while as a Mutable sign it is versatile, adaptable, and multi-faceted. Mutable signs are the last of each season which is a reflection of its changeable nature to help facilitate a transition from one thing to the next.
Gemini’s energy is curious, communicative, articulate, informative, busy, clever, and dualistic. It has chameleon-like properties and is the sign of multiple expressions or personalities. Gemini is associated with information, learning, writing, commuting, and agility. Negatively, it can be gossipy, superficial, inconsistent, scattered, two faced, unfocused, and lack emotion.
New Moon In Hard Aspect With Jupiter Square Neptune
Jupiter in Sagittarius is square Neptune in Pisces throughout much of 2019. The first exact hit of this energy was in January, the next one is coming in the middle of this month, and the final one will be in mid-late September.
At best this energy can be inspiring and compassionate. Expansive pursuits such as learning or travel may be based around beliefs, faith, spirituality, and creativity. This can be great for mystical experiences and it can also be supportive for creative pursuits such as visual arts/media or music.
However, it is a square which can also reflect the challenging potentials of this energy. We can be unrealistic, overly idealistic, and experience confusion or delusion around perspectives.
We can more easily lack attention to certain details and it is also possible to experience more complications around travel or education when this energy peaks. For some people, overindulging in escapist or intoxicating behavior may also be a theme.
Considering that this New Moon is in a hard aspect with Jupiter and Neptune, it can really trigger many of the potentials mentioned, both positive and negative. It can also reflect conflict around facts and beliefs. Communication issues and lack of focus can also be a factor. We may also try to overextend ourselves, or be pulled in different directions, but may be be faced with some of the potential complications mentioned above. This energy is strongest from June 8th – 10th.
Venus Trine Pluto, Mercury Sextile Uranus and Square Chiron
During this New Moon and in the days leading up to it, Venus in Taurus is in a trine with Pluto in Capricorn. This can be good for positive developments around relationships (socially or romantically), resources, aesthetics, values, or perhaps even financially as well. It can be regenerating, deep, or passionate. Our connections with others can be more real and less superficial.
Mercury, the ruler of this New Moon, will be going into Cancer almost a day and a half later. It will move towards a sextile to Uranus and a square to Chiron which peaks on June 7th. We can be more intuitive, inventive, and original. Positive surprises may also come up. Our communications can be exciting and stimulating. This can help us to think about things in a different way. Issues around our blockages and wounds may come up and/or it can be a time in which we have creative solutions.
Mars In Aspect With Saturn Sextile Neptune, Eclipses In Next Moon Cycle
Saturn in Capricorn is in a sextile with Neptune in Pisces which began earlier this year and will peak again in mid-June. This is great for taking a structured, disciplined, realistic, or committed approach when it comes to ideals, dreams, inspirations, creativity, spirituality, or even anything that involves selflessness, compassion, or healing.
Mars is moving towards aspects with these two planets. It will be in an opposition to Saturn and trine to Neptune which peaks from June 12th-16th with Mercury also triggering it. This can help us to want to act on our inspirations, however it is also possible that we can face obstacles and frustrations during that time as well. If so, it can potentially push us to change how we need to be assertive to ourselves. Also, Neptune is slowing down to go retrograde on the June 21st which can also reflect potential revisions,
The next New Moon in a month from now will be a Solar Eclipse followed by a Lunar Eclipse in mid-July. Eclipses facilitate changes in specific areas of your life which could play out over a longer period of time depending on different factors. Some are more significant than others for different people.
In the month leading up to eclipses we may start to notice their effects so keep in mind that any major shifts or developments might be connected to them. They can be challenging and/or evolutionary to help us in how we need to progress. I will be writing separate articles on them as we get closer, you can join my mailing list here to ensure that you receive my content.
Making Intentions And Things To Consider
What triggers your curiosity and what are the types of things that you’d like to learn more about? Do you need to be more versatile? What can you do to be more original? What inspires you? What are your ideals and is there anything that you can be doing to push some of them closer to reality? In what ways might you be unrealistic?
These are just some examples of what to consider or focus your intentions on at this time; however, it is good to reflect on anything else that is coming up for you. It is generally best to make any intentions within the first 24 hours following a New Moon. The exact moment of it will be occurring at 10:02am Universal Time on June 3rd.
