Yoga, Meditation Pays!

mind-body medical bills A new research study shows that a little yoga or meditation a day might just keep the doctor away. Stress-related health problems are responsible for up to 80% of visits to the doctor and account for the third highest health care expenditures, behind only heart disease and cancer. But as few as 3% of doctors actually talk to patients about how to reduce stress.

Mind-body practices like yoga and meditation have been shown to reduce your body’s stress response by strengthening your relaxation response and lowering stress hormones like cortisol. Yoga has been shown to have many health benefits, including improving heart health and helping relieve depression and anxiety. But the cost-effectiveness of these therapies has been less well demonstrated--until now.

Dr. James E. Stahl and his team of Harvard researchers studied a mind-body relaxation program offered through the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital. The 8-week program taught participants several different mind-body approaches, including meditation, yoga, mindfulness, cognitive behavioral skills, and positive psychology. The study volunteers participated in weekly sessions and practiced at home as well.

The researchers found that people in the relaxation program used 43% fewer medical services than they did the previous year, saving on average $2,360 per person in emergency room visits alone. This means that such yoga and meditation programs could translate into health care savings of anywhere from $640 to as much as $25,500 per patient each year.

QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: Using the advanced technology of quantum medicine is also a very inexpensive way to avoid medical bills. Our Life Energy Pack has four easy-to-remember formulas that cover most every condition or symptom. A great addition to any personal or family wellness plan and routine.


Yoga Coming to the Affordable Care Act

yoga class Here are four reasons we should expect to see yoga and other mind-body programs covered by health insurers and included in the Affordable Care Act as well:
1. Yoga has a strong scientific evidence that yoga promotes physical and mental health.
Yoga can improve heart health, cancer recovery, and chronic pain. Yoga has been shown to improve mental health by reducing stress, depression, and anxiety. Neuroimaging studies have shown that yoga and meditation change the brain and genetic studies reveal that yoga could even impact gene expression at the molecular DNA level and protect our the longevity of our DNA.

2. Yoga programs have been shown to reduce hospital visits by 43%, which could translate into thousands of dollars in health care savings.
Stress is one of the top three health care costs in the U.S., behind only heart disease and cancer. Stress-related problems account for up to 80-90% of visits to the doctor, but only 3% of doctors talk about how to reduce stress with their patients.

A recent study conducted by Dr. James E. Stahl and his team at Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital found that people who participated in an 8-week yoga and meditation program used 43% fewer medical services than the previous year, saving on average $2,360 per person in emergency room visits alone. This means that such yoga and meditation programs could translate into health care savings of $640 to $25,500 per patient each year.

3. The number of people interested in yoga is growing rapidly.
Yoga is the most popular form of mind-body practice in America today. One in 10 Americans are doing yoga, and nearly half of people who haven't tried yoga yet are interested in learning. This means that if yoga was made more affordable and accessible through health insurers, it's likely many people will actually use this insurance benefit.

4. Yoga provides tools that people can continue at home to create lasting benefits.
What is a better investment than a low-cost yoga and meditation program that teaches people skills that they can take home to continue these health benefits? Dr. Stahl, who is now section chief at general internal medicine at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, teaches his patients mindfulness skills in his internal medicine practice and encourages people to practice daily at home. "The biggest thing that people need to do--whether it's meditation, yoga, or something else--is that you only need to spend 10 to 15 minutes a day, but the real key is consistency," Dr. Stahl recommends.

QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: These preventative and curative practices, if covered by the ACA, will turn on an entire segment of the population to quantum medicine and how it can help maximize mind-body practices. Use our Meditation Elixirs to assist in this adventure!


Scientific Evidence for a Connecting Matrix

connected Neuroscientist Dr. Jacobo Grinberg-Zylberbaum worked extensively with shamans and other individuals in Mexico, collecting vast amounts of data using electroencephalograph (EEG) readings and various inventories relevant to learning, memory, perception and biopsychology.

One of these studies began by having two people meditate for twenty minutes together. They were then separated into two different rooms, both of which were shielded from all electromagnetic energies. One person was presented with random flashes of light, designed to elicit shock responses. The other person, sitting in a different room, was hooked up to an EEG machine. This subject’s EEG readings showed a similar shock response, perfectly timed with the other individual’s light flashes, twenty-five percent of the time. A control group, on the other hand, showed no such correlation. Many interesting variations of this study were conducted, all with equally interesting results.

Grinberg published these results in Physics Essays, a highly respected, peer-reviewed journal. And though this evidence was painstakingly collected in more than fifty experiments over a five-year period, he received a great deal of criticism. In yet another paper he expressed his theory of a pre-space structure he referred to as a "holographic, non-local lattice," a matrix, if you will.

In this promising but controversial paper, Grinberg attributed nothing less than consciousness to this matrix, stating that the "neuronal field [emanating from the brain] distorts this lattice, and activates a partial interpretation of it that is perceived as an image. Only when the brain-mind system is free from interpretations, do the neuronal field and the pre-space structure become identical." He concluded that all individual minds were linked to one another via this non-local matrix.

Subsequent studies conducted by other researchers seemed to validate Grinberg’s original findings. Physicist Fred H. Thaheld, for instance, used Faraday cages to shield two separate compartments from electromagnetic energies. One person was hooked up to an EEG in one chamber, and another person was likewise attached to an EEG in the other chamber. The compartments were isolated from one another, making impossible any means of communication. Yet when one subject was presented with stimulating visual patterns, there was a statistically significant response rate in which the other subject’s EEG showed a corresponding and simultaneous response.

Charles Tart of UC Davis conducted a similar experiment, but instead of using an EEG and visual stimulation, he monitored galvanic skin resistance (GSR), blood volume and heart rate in response to small electric shocks. Two people were asked to meet one another and agree to remaining "connected" after going their separate ways. When isolated in different rooms, Tart administered small electric shocks to the "sender." Even though the receiver was totally unaware of any response at all, Tart’s data revealed that this receiver’s GSR, blood volume and heart rate all indeed reacted to each of the "sender's" shocks.

QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: Similar research was conducted by Dr. Yury Kronn in his development of subtle-energy-infused gem elixirs. In fact, the Cosmic Eye elixir has been shown to significantly increase a person's energetic connection to other people, and to world events--in essence "tapping into the Matrix" consciously.

The Ultimate Approach to Pain

pain I was listening to body expert and Access Consciousness facilitator, Donnielle Carter, today on her internet radio show, "The Right Body for You", and had a couple of a-ha's.

There is a very common and almost guaranteed trap with pain, and that is to make it significant and part of who you are. This can be very sneaky, but let me tell you some ways to break the syndrome.

Donnielle reminded me that pain is my body yelling at me. Why does it yell? Not so much because there is something that wrong with it, which is the first conclusion most of us come to. It is more deeply the body attempting to get into communication with its occupant. It needs the healing power of attention to repair and rejuvenate in the areas of pain.

Let me repeat that. The body's way of telling you that it needs your attention is the experience of pain. It already knows what it needs to heal and transform, and a major part of that is the attention of the owner.

Now, what the body doesn't need is for you to focus on the pain itself, because we all know what happens when we focus on something: it gets bigger. This is like objecting to the fact you are being yelled at, instead of listening to what is actually being said. What the body is needing you to do is simply and only acknowledge the communication that is in the form of pain.

Here's a process to run: When there is a particular pain, respond to it by saying "Thank you." The body now knows that you got the message and it can stop yelling. The "thank you" phrase has the dual use of being a declaration of gratitude. So you are effectively telling the body, "I hear you and am grateful for your gift of communication to me." The combination of acknowledgement and gratitude is just the healing mojo the body is looking for from its owner.

What usually happens--and this has been my downfall--is we focus on the pain as if that is what we must "get rid of." That's like yelling back at the body, "Shut up! I don't want to hear anything more from you!" This does nothing to create a healing two-way communication line with the body, and will only make things worse for both you and your body.

pain relief How do you NOT focus on the pain? By acknowledging it. It is the practice of allowance. You are not resisting or avoiding it, you are simply allowing its presence--simply allowing it to be a communication from your body. This creates space between you and the pain, because it has succeeded in getting your attention, which is the purpose of it.

Now, your next job is to thank it (gratitude) and then cast your attention where there is ease and joy in the body. No matter how bad pain gets, there is always a place somewhere that doesn't hurt, or even feels really good. Yes, your knees ache, but your back feels great. That's the kind of grateful attention the body is craving, because, again, what you put your attention on gets bigger.

By allowing and thanking a painful area on the body, you can then start asking questions, such as: What is it about this I'm not getting? What is it going to take to have ease and joy in all of my body forever? What does the body need that I can provide that I'm not aware of?

Imagine that a painful area of your body is a voice talking to you. What is it saying? How does it feel? What is it asking for? Continue asking these questions and the overall questions above. Soon, you'll begin to receive awarenesses about things to do or ways to be to assist in creating joy and ease in that painful area. Maybe you'll get a sudden urge to stretch, take a walk, breathe, massage, have some sex, drink some water; or you may get a mental picture of sunshine, or standing barefoot in some grass; or maybe even eat some ice cream or go to a movie, or listen to music. These are all responses to the questions you have been asking, and these are the things for your to-do list as a considerate and responsible body owner.

To your quantum health,

How you eat is more important than what you eat

eating Mind-Body Nutrition focuses on how the mind has a profound influence on the body when it comes to how we metabolize a meal. More specifically, Mind-Body Nutrition looks at the psychophysiology of how digestion, assimilation, calorie burning and all the nutritive functions of the body are literally and scientifically impacted by stress, relaxation, thoughts, beliefs, emotions, pleasure, eating rhythm, eating speed, awareness, our personal story, and more...

To put it another way: What we eat is half the story of good nutrition--the other half of the story is who we are as eaters. That is, the person who we are literally and scientifically influences how we digest, absorb and calorie burn a meal. Previously in the field of nutrition, we've made the assumption that the nutritional value of a meal is given exclusively in the nutrients it contains--macronutrients, micronutrients and so on. So if you wanted to know the value of a meal, you'd merely look at the label and the nutrient profile.

But nutrition is way more interesting than that. The error in thinking here, is that just because a food has a specific nutrient content doesn't mean we will ABSORB all of those nutrients. We need to look at the person who's ingesting that food. We need to look at how their physiology is being impacted by mind and emotions. We need to ask the question "Are we in the optimum state of digestion, assimilation and calorie burning when we're eating?"

The bottom line is this: you can be eating the healthiest food in the universe, but if you aren't eating under the optimum physiologic state--which happens to be relaxation-- then you won't get even close to receiving the full nutritional value of that meal. According to the well-accepted research, stress has the following impact:

  • It de-regulates appetite and drives us to eat more
  • It increases cortisol and insulin which signal weight gain and fat storage
  • It decreases muscle growth
  • It causes digestive upset
  • It leads to intense nutrient excretion
  • It kills healthy gut bacteria
  • It increases unhealthy cholesterol levels
  • It can lower thyroid and growth hormone levels
  • It can make us more susceptible to food allergies
  • And the list goes on...
Clearly, stress has a massive impact on our health--more and more people know that these days. But here's the tricky part: We're all aware of the obvious stresses in our lives--work stress, relationship challenges, financial issues, and so on. But we often miss the powerful stressors that are more hidden.

Stress is any real or IMAGINED danger and the body's response to that danger. In other words, the brain literally doesn't distinguish between a real stress or an imagined one. If you sat in a room all by yourself, happy and content, and started thinking about the guy who did you wrong years ago, and if that story still carries a charge for you--your body would quickly shift into the physiologic stress-state--increased heart rate and blood pressure, followed by decreased digestive function; meaning you can create stress chemistry day in and day out by simply the thoughts you think.

QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: Being mindful about how we stress ourselves is crucial to good nutrition. Eating while stressed pretty much guarantees nutrients will not be absorbed, or perfectly good food turns into poison under stress. Use our E-1 anti-stress formula as well as Clean Sweep, to pull you out of stress mode. Your body will thank you!


The skill of resilience reduces doctor visits

resilience Researchers at Harvard recently reported a potent way to keep the doctor away. And it isn't an apple a day or a new drug--it's a life skill called resilience. It's the adult equivalent of crashing into a hedge during your first bike ride without training wheels, shaking the leaves and dirt from your hair, and thinking, "Okay, that wasn't too bad. Let me try that again."

People tend to think resilience is something that lucky people have and unhappy people lack, but that's not true. It's a skill you can learn. Anyone can strengthen their resilience with practice, starting with the relaxation response--a physiologic state of deep rest induced by practices such as rhythmic breathing, mindfulness meditation, yoga, tai chi, qi gong, or prayer. The relaxation response was first described more than 40 years ago by Dr. Herbert Benson, founder and director emeritus of the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH).

The power of resilience is at the center of a study published recently in the journal PLoS One by Benson and his colleagues at MGH. People who graduated from a resiliency-boosting program developed by the Benson-Henry Institute, used considerably less health care services in the year following the course compared with the year before.

QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: Experiencing a negative event, or a personal setback is not as important as what you do and feel afterwards. To assist in getting "back on the bike", use our Clean Sweep negative energy mist. Just spray it on yourself after a setback or trauma. It will neutralize the negative emotions and energies that came along with or may have even caused the event.


Mind-Body Medicine offers better prevention than conventional

meditation Mind-body medicine (MBM) is a holistic approach that has the potential to ward off more heart attacks than conventional prevention programs. That is the conclusion reached by Holger Cramer and colleagues in a systematic review and meta-analysis presented in the latest issue of Deutsches √Ąrzteblatt International. They show that MBM in cardiac patients has a positive effect on coronary events, atherosclerosis, and high blood pressure.

Three of the most important risk factors for coronary heart disease—lack of exercise, overweight, and stress—are amenable to intervention. While conventional preventive measures concentrate on exercise and advice on nutrition, MBM also embraces relaxation methods and psychological motivation techniques. In the studies analyzed by Cramer et al., coronary events occurred in 68 of 307 patients who received conventional interventions but in only half as many—33/308—of those on MBM prevention programs. The authors point out that despite this positive effect MBM does not decrease mortality in cardiac patients. Nevertheless, the lower incidence of coronary events is beneficial. They therefore endorse MBM or other comparable programs for lifestyle modification.

QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: Of course, this is not news to us! Because the body's health reflects the positive or negative state of the mind, the effects on such diagnoses as heart disease, MS, arthritis, et al., starts with mental and emotional states. The more unconscious we are of our mental and emotional states, the more "external" is our assignment of cause. The key is to raise awareness of self through meditation and mindfulness. Use our Meditation Elixirs to assist in this adventure!

Embrace Pronoia

pronoia I'm sure you've noticed this in your life: You buy a car and suddenly you start seeing that car everywhere. I used to think because I made this particular brand of car my own, my mind started making associations with similar car brands that I was not aware of before, even though they were there the whole time. I'm now coming to believe something deeper about this interesting phenomenon. What if when I bought that Jeep, I became part of the "Jeep Matrix", and other Jeeps started showing up for me because I'm in that matrix, not because I just wasn't aware of them before.

This type of manifestation has been called "Pronoia"--the awareness that the universe is conspiring in your favor--a term coined by consciousness pioneer John Perry Barlow of the Grateful Dead. Simply put, you ask for something with the conviction that the Universe has got your back, and it (sometimes miraculously) shows up.

It's also interesting to apply this awareness to what is snarkily referred to as the "Placebo Effect". You believe that a substance you ingest will heal or regress some malady or condition, and sure enough, after a little time, it does, even though that substance was a simple sugar pill. The opposite can also be true: You believe a medical treatment will harm you, and it does, but not because the treatment is actually harmful. It's because of your belief. This has been coined the "Nocebo Effect".

In fact, the Placebo Effect is so well-documented, scientists try to short-circuit it by conducting "double-blind" trials for new drugs in an attempt to isolate the actual effects of the drug from a person's beliefs about what it is doing to their body. I would ask, which is more powerful? The person's beliefs, or the drug? Isn't this just another form of pronoia? The universe is re-arranging to your beliefs causing the body to be harmed or healed.

When applied to the universe of nutritional supplements and herbology, it's easy to see a huge complication here. If your beliefs are just as strong or stronger than any supplement you can take: 1. Why take a supplement (or medicine), and, 2. What do you actually believe? Are you a believer at first, but then lose that belief so the supplements start to do nothing? Or, are you convinced nothing will work and you take the supplements (or medicine) to prove yourself right?

confusion supplements So much confusion and frustration is caused by this, and it is in no small part helped by marketing and the physical sciences. For example, a certain supplement is known to contain a certain property, say, ginsenosides. ginsenosides are shown by science to positively affect overall vitality and immunity. Because you believe in the science and you also observe a lack of vitality in your body, you use the supplements with ginsenosides in them to heal or resolve the lack of vitality.

As long as it's as simple as that, your chances of improvement are probably pretty good. But, what if one morning you wake up and you feel worse. You start to believe that perhaps these ginsenosides don't actually work, and soon, because of no result, you stop taking the supplement. You then start searching out other alternatives, and find something else that science says relieves your lack of vitality. This time, you feel better. Ah, now THIS is the answer! And from now on, when you have a lack of vitality, you medicate with this substance.

What if healing and health have really nothing to do with what supplements you take or even what diet you consume? What if the MOST IMPORTANT thing is what you BELIEVE about your health and healing?

I've been experimenting with this lately. I was taking a lot of different Chinese and Ayurvedic herbs, and various vitamins and minerals to address some joint and muscle pain I was having. The herbs seemed to help, as well as the vitamins, yet there was no real resolution (after a year)--some relief at times, but no resolution. In fact, I was bouncing so much between relief and exacerbation, I just got thoroughly confused and discouraged.

simplicity I then woke up one morning and had the strong awareness to just STOP taking everything, and fast for a day. Then, re-introduce herbs and supplements ONLY after carefully asking my body and using kinesiology (muscle-testing for strong or weak signals) to determine what I actually consumed. I committed to muscle test everything, including different foods and forms of water. I discovered that my body was struggling with long-term dehydration, and was expending more energy responding to all the herbs and supplements I was shoving down its throat than doing any actual healing.

After about three days, I was feeling much better, and as days went by, I felt better and better. This was confusing to me until I realized that my core belief was that the body heals itself naturally, given proper hydration, oxygenation and my personal conviction in its healing abilities.

So rather than making a judgment call about what I "needed to take" to bring health to the body, I started asking the body what it really needed: how much water, what foods when, what exercise when, how much sleep when, and any vitamins, minerals, enzymes, or herbs. It showed me it just mainly needed the basics: plentiful water, clean food, fresh air, some daily exercise, some minerals, given in gratitude and with my core belief in its healing super-powers. Start asking the universe with sincere curiosity, "What will it take to get rid of _____?", and "What needs to happen in my life to have vibrant health in my body?" This will stimulate pronoia, and awarenesses and answers will start flooding in.

Start asking for your core beliefs about your body. What are your convictions about your body and health? By discovering and validating these (or changing them) you can escape from the placebo/nocebo rabbit hole, and allow the universe to simply work in your body's favor. Embrace pronoia!

To your quantum health,

Mindfulness acknowledged as a valid medical practice

conscious Mindfulness practices as we know them today are rooted in 2500-year-old Buddhist meditation practices and are often described as "...paying attention to the present moment experiences with openness, curiosity, and a willingness to be with what is". Herbert Benson, MD, founder of the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, is often credited with bringing mindfulness into the realm of Western medicine. His 1975 book The Relaxation Response outlined techniques to combat the harmful effects of stress with relaxation methods similar to meditation.

These practices didn't stay lodged in the 1970s like a macramé plant holder, however. Several structured mindfulness programs have since been developed and are being implemented in clinical practice. One of these is mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), pioneered by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, MPH, founding executive director of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, as reported in the Journal of American Medical Association.

From the quantum living viewpoint, this is a no-brainer. When we keep our attention fully in the present moment, with allowance of everything that is there, all the information about anything is available. This includes communications from the body. The body is constantly reporting to you on its condition--we call that "symptoms". Most of us have been trained to ignore or get rid of symptoms without getting to the cause of them. In order to find out the cause of symptoms in the body, a mindfulness practice is essential. Be there with the symptom(s). Ask them what they are, and what you can do to make the body more comfortable of pain free. This takes some practice, but after a while, you'll be getting very clear action point messages. Then the key, of course, is to respond and carry out any tasks indicated.

QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: Talk to your body. It's alive, it's conscious. In fact, talk to your plants, certainly your animals, and believe it or not, communicate with other inanimate objects in your life, such as your car, your clothes, your computer, your furniture. You will be surprised at what comes up! Use our Cosmic Eye gem elixir to amplify your intuition and sensitivity to subtle energies.


Acupressure point hooks you up to higher power

shen men Referred to in Traditional Chinese Medicine as the Shen Men point, or "heavenly gate", this technique is invaluable for pain relief, inflammation, concentration difficulties, stress, and a host of other conditions and symptoms.

To treat the point, simply put your fingers behind both ears and thumbs pressing in on the top of the ear (see pic). Massage gently, while taking 3-5 deep, slow breaths. Do this once or twice a day (or more if you're having a bad one), and especially before bedtime.

The point is called the "Heavenly Gate" because it opens the body to higher spiritual energies, connecting the body to its source energy. Shen Men is a profound, marvelous point for heightening your body's overall wellness, and is a great "hack" for health over the long term.

QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: Our E-4 Ionic Mineral subtle energy formula connects the upper and lower energy centers of the body, and is a wonderful supplement for the immune system and nervous system. Taken in conjunction with using the Shen Men acupressure point technique, both are amplified and given a quantum leap in potency.


DNA discovered to be a carrier of memories

DNA memories New research from Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta, has shown that it is possible for some information to be inherited biologically through chemical changes that occur in DNA. During the tests they learned that that mice can pass on learned information about traumatic or stressful experiences--in this case a fear of the smell of cherry blossom--to subsequent generations.

According to the Telegraph, Dr Brian Dias, from the department of psychiatry at Emory University, said: "From a translational perspective, our results allow us to appreciate how the experiences of a parent, before even conceiving offspring, markedly influence both structure and function in the nervous system of subsequent generations. Such a phenomenon may contribute to... disorders such as phobias, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder."

This suggests that experiences are somehow transferred from the brain into the genome, allowing them to be passed on to later generations. The researchers now hope to carry out further work to understand how the information comes to be stored on the DNA in the first place. They also want to explore whether similar effects can be seen in the genes of humans.

Professor Marcus Pembrey, a pediatric geneticist at University College London, said the work provided "compelling evidence" for the biological transmission of memory.

He added: "[This research] addresses the controversial subject of transmission of the 'memory' of ancestral experience down the generations. It is high time public health researchers took human transgenerational responses seriously."

QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: From a quantum perspective, this research and more broadly the science of epigenetics, is supported by the phenomena of quantum entanglement--where two quantum particles become "entangled" or share identical information without physical connection. Our intrepid quantum researcher, Dr. Yury Kronn, uses this very mechanism to infuse quantum information from one source into another. This is particularly interesting with our Trinity Gem Elixirs. Use the search tool to find the right gem elixirs for you.

This Quantum Life

The Choice Trap

choice Our most powerful tool, choice, is also our most abused and unused. This basic mechanism of consciousness is the direct demonstration to ourselves of our power and powerlessness. Are we choosing the best life? Are we choosing to destroy it? Are we not making choices because we're afraid? Are we afraid of any choices at all?

These are really deeply existential questions that get at the core of what we are: creators. We create our life only by using choice. In fact, making choices is something so natural, so automatic, we oftentimes don't realize that we are choosing the pain, discomforts and unwanted conditions we "live with" on the day-to-day. We tell ourselves, "We have no choice" about this, that and the other.

I like to call this the Choice Trap. We pretend we're not choosing and things get bad or worse, and then we suddenly realize we "have no choice" but to...(fill in the blank). My spiritual teacher once told me, "Choosing is an exercise in paying attention. Be aware of what you choose, because it's the only way you're going to get what you want." At the time I laughed at this seemingly obvious statement, but later I realized it was quite profound. There are so many "choices" we make in the form of choosing to "go along" with others, or choosing to procrastinate, or choosing to not do what you know needs to be done, or choosing not to think about your life. These are, often times, unconscious choices that become a sort of operating manual for life.

We can too easily choose to be a victim, or choose to look outside ourself for causes, or choose to be "right" as opposed to "correct". In fact, most of our psychology is constructed on the choices we've made to embrace or deny our values. What's the more important choice? Being right or being compassionate? Being truthful or secretive? All of these types of questions point out what we are choosing any given day.

A friend of mine visited last week on vacation, and said, "It's been so nice to be on vacation. I don't have to make any decisions--I just go wherever I want and do whatever I want." To him, making a decision was a big deal, and yet he was making choices the entire time of his vacation as to where to go and what to do. He didn't think of these kinds of choices as being significant. And yet, these are the kinds of decisions that get us from Point A to Point B every day, and are the key to living the highest and best life we can imagine.

follow energy There are a couple of "choosing hacks" I like to use to keep me mindful of the choices I'm making moment to moment. One is, "light or heavy". Say you've narrowed your choices down to two. Ask the question, "is this light or heavy"? One of the choices will seem lighter than the other one, or if they both seem heavy, there is another unacknowledged possibility you aren't considering. If they are both feeling light, well, then, have fun! Always favor lightness. It will serve as your North Star for navigating through your day.

The second choosing hack is "follow the energy". This is similar to favoring lightness, but it's much more specific. Get the idea of something you want to have. Feel the energy of that as though you have it. Now, start choosing the things to do in your day or week that make you feel that same energy. Before too long, you will have that thing you originally wanted, and usually more. It's the "act as if" drill applied to energies.

So, carefully observe every time you make a decision, no matter how small or inconsequential. You'll begin to see where you've actually decided to have the life you have. And once that awareness dawns, you can change it by using your most powerful tool: Choice.

Quantum Health News for Oct. 7, 2015

Scientists explore consciousness as a state in all things...

conscious Consciousness. It is the force that makes us tick, the cogent drive that makes you "you." It is our state of consciousness that bestows us with awareness and sensitivity to our surroundings, the ability to think for the future and remember the past, the ability to acknowledge one another as intelligent individuals, and much more. But what exactly is consciousness? MIT Physicist, Max Tegmark, believes he has found the answer to this question.

Web published this year in the Cornell University arXiv, Tegmark's paper titled "Consciousness as State of Matter" explores the possibility that consciousness is a form of matter, "perceptronium," that has unique information processing abilities. Just as ordinary matter requires specific conditions to assume each respective states, consciousness matter too has its variety of forms that it can take, each form resulting in a different state of consciousness. This is not to say that there is a small reservoir of solidifying, evaporating, liquefying, fluid in your brain that is dictating your cognition, but rather, particular conditions of the mind combine to produce a given state of consciousness.

In recent years, it has been believed that since a consciousness must be able to store, retrieve, and process information and exist as a unified whole, it cannot be broken down into smaller parts. This, however, is not the case, argues Tegmark. The individual traits of conscious are calculable. The traits of perceptonium are comprised of the four basic principles deemed essential in waking consciousness: the information, integration, independence, and dynamics principles, for each of which he offers explicit detail in his paper. Tegmark believes that the activity levels of each of the traits can vary, each combination resulting a unique state of consciousness.

Combine these concepts with the findings of other physicists of "Dark Matter" or "subtle energy", and the conclusion can be drawn that consciousness is a fundamental state of all matter.

QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: Talk to your body. It's alive, it's conscious. In fact, talk to your plants, certainly your animals, and believe it or not, communicate with other inanimate objects in your life, such as your car, your clothes, your computer, your furniture. You will be surprised at what comes up! Use our Cosmic Eye gem elixir to amplify your intuition and sensitivity to subtle energies.


Visualizing for health

Visualization Dr. Emma Mardlin, a psychotherapist and practitioner of mind body medicine at the Pinnacle Practice in West Bridgford, says, "As the mind generally thinks in pictures, using good strong imagery can have a magnificent effect in terms of engraving positive messages deep in our neurology to effect desired physical change.

"One reason for this is because the part of the mind responsible for running and maintaining our body 24/7 on autopilot is unable to recognize the difference between what is real and not real, if we visualize something with enough detail and clarity. An example of this principle is if you’ve ever had a very realistic, vivid dream and you’ve woken up either crying, laughing, disturbed or even unsettled by it. Although 'just a dream', it has nevertheless stimulated a physical response; your body has believed it to be true and thus responded accordingly. We can therefore utilize visualization to assist in the healing process, changing our mood, activating physical changes, and achieving various goals."

One small example where visualization has helped in the healing process is a case documented in 1971 by Dr O.Carl Simonton – a radiologist at the University of Texas. The case involved a 61-year-old man diagnosed with throat cancer. The disease was so far progressed the man could hardly swallow and he was severely underweight. This man's prognosis was very poor, giving him only a five per cent chance of survival after treatment, though it was strongly anticipated he wouldn’t respond well to radiation due to already being so weak. However, Dr Simonton was curious to try a psychological approach using visualization. The patient did as was suggested and vizualised his immune system attacking the cancer and sweeping the cancer cells from his body, replacing them with healthy ones. The patient went away and applied this at regular intervals throughout the day.

In applying this, the tumor shortly began to shrink and his response to radiation was almost free of side-effects; after two months the tumor was completely gone. This same patient then visualized away his arthritis, remaining free of this condition and the cancer, thus resuming a regular healthy life.

QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: Our Success & Achievement Elixir increases mental focus, enhances social presence, and improves confidence and mood. It is an excellent assistant for visualization practices.


The body heals itself, but not if it's stressed...

self-healing As a skeptic herself, Dr. Lissa Rankin makes an irrefutable case, documenting with cold, hard science that the medical establishment has been proving that the mind can heal the body for over 50 years.

Loads of data proves that the mind can believe itself well. In clinical trials, we call it "the placebo effect." Patients treated with placebos don’t just feel better. It's not just "in their heads." They've actually had warts disappear, bronchi dilate, colons become less inflamed, hair growth on the heads of bald men, ulcers heal, and other measurable physiological phenomena. We also know that the opposite is true, and the mind can think itself sick, which researchers call "the nocebo effect." When patients are given injections with saline and told it is chemotherapy, they vomit and lose their hair.

How do such things happen physiologically? In her book, Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof That You Can Heal Yourself, Lissa Rankin, MD, explains the science behind how a positive or negative thought or emotion in the mind translates into spontaneous repair in the body. As it turns out, the body has built in self-repair mechanisms that fix damaged proteins, repair DNA, correct hormonal imbalances, and gobble up cancer cells, infectious agents, and foreign bodies that our bodies are exposed to everyday. These mechanisms explain the spontaneous remissions that are reported in the medical literature from seemingly "incurable" diseases like Stage 4 cancer, HIV, hypothyroidism, diabetes, and even an untreated gunshot wound to the head.

Stress disables the body's natural self-repair mechanisms, and regardless of what triggers it, stress flips on a series of physiological cascades associated with the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and the "fight or flight" response of the sympathetic nervous system. This effectively turns off body repair systems. Dr. Rankin shares not just the scientific proof that you can heal yourself, but also tips for using the power of the mind to optimize the body's natural self-repair mechanisms.

QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: Our flagship formula, E-1, was specifically formulated to effectively "turn off" the "fight or flight" response of the nervous systems. Especially effective taken before bedtime and upon rising, E-1 harmonizes body systems and calms any over-responses. Great for insomnia.
