Meditation Permanently Changes the Brain

brain Until recently, little was known about how a few hours of quiet reflection each week could lead to such an intriguing range of mental and physical effects. Now, as the popularity of mindfulness grows, brain imaging techniques are revealing that this ancient practice can profoundly change the way different regions of the brain communicate with each other--and therefore how we think--permanently.

MRI scans show that after an eight-week course of mindfulness practice, the brain's "fight or flight" center, the amygdala, appears to shrink. This primal region of the brain, associated with fear and emotion, is involved in the initiation of the body's response to stress.

As the amygdala shrinks, the pre-frontal cortex--associated with higher order brain functions such as awareness, concentration and decision-making--becomes thicker.

The "functional connectivity" between these regions--that is, how often they are activated together--also changes. The connection between the amygdala and the rest of the brain gets weaker, while the connections between areas associated with attention and concentration get stronger.

The scale of these changes correlate with the number of hours of meditation practice a person has done, says Adrienne Taren, a researcher studying mindfulness at the University of Pittsburgh. "The picture we have is that mindfulness practice increases one's ability to recruit higher order, pre-frontal cortex regions in order to down-regulate lower-order brain activity," she says.

In other words, our more primal responses to stress seem to be superseded by more thoughtful ones. Lots of activities can boost the size of various parts of the pre-frontal cortex--video games, for example – but it's the disconnection of our mind from its "stress center" that seems to give rise to a range of physical as well as mental health benefits," says Taren.

"I'm definitely not saying mindfulness can cure HIV or prevent heart disease. But we do see a reduction in biomarkers of stress and inflammation. Markers like C-reactive proteins, interleukin 6 and cortisol – all of which are associated with disease."

Mindfulness Meditation Reverses Brain Aging

anti-aging Over the past few years alone, a wealth of scientific data has outlined the many benefits meditation can have on our biology, further strengthening the scientific validity of the mind-body connection.

For example, an eight-week study conducted by Harvard researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) determined that meditation can literally rebuild the brain's grey matter in just eight weeks. It's the very first study to document that meditation produces changes over time in the brain's grey matter. They also released a study showing that meditation can have a significant impact on clinical symptoms of gastrointestinal disorders, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The study showed that elicitation of the relaxation response (a physical state of deep rest that changes the physical and emotional responses to stress) improves symptoms in all these disorders. It was also recently discovered that meditation creates a distinct network of anti-aging genes and improves cellular health.

This time, new research from the UCLA School of Medicine's Department of Neurology has shown that long-term meditators have younger brains, with higher concentrations of tissue in the brain regions most depleted by aging. The study found that meditation can protect against the decline we normally see occurring through old age and keep our brains young.

According to the study, "On average, the brains of long-term meditators were 7.5 years younger at age 50 than the brains of non-meditators, and an additional 1 month and 22 days younger for every year after 50."

The authors conclude by hypothesizing several different explanations for the results they observed. Firstly, meditation could be stimulating growth in neural structures and promote increased connectivity and efficiency within neural networks. Secondly, it "buffers the brain and nervous system against the deleterious effects of chronic stress, which may reduce pro-inflammatory response, stimulate telomerase activity, and inhibit age-related brain change."

QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: One of the prime movers of aging is stress. Stress can prevent proper attention and focus required for effective and long-lasting effects of mindfulness mediation. Before you begin your meditation practice, dose with our E-1 Stress Relief Formula and suddenly notice the difference.


Studying Burning Man and Mass Consciousness

burning man Experiments conducted by researchers from the Institute of Noetic Sciences from 2012 through 2016 at the Burning Man festival in Nevada's Black Rock Desert explored a subjective experience often reported by participants during the two main ceremonies – the Man Burn and the Temple Burn.

This subjective experience is variously described as an "energetic shift" or as "electricity in the air," and it seems to be evoked when tens of thousands of people coherently focus on the same event.

The experiments involved monitoring the outputs of truly random number generators (RNG) before, during, and after these ceremonies. The combined results of the five experiments, involving different numbers and types of RNGs, indicated a non-chance increase of order in the RNG outputs during the two main events. This suggests that the Star Wars idea of a "disturbance in the Force" is more than a metaphor. It appears that moments of collective coherent attention are associated with an unexpected appearance of order in random physical systems. This in turn suggests the presence of a fundamental relationship between consciousness and the physical world.

Burning Man was selected as the venue for these experiments because (a) the festival attracts tens of thousands of people, (b) it takes place in a thoroughly isolated desert environment, far from the nearest electrical power grid, (c) it takes significant travel, preparation and financial planning to attend the festival.

Data were recorded on all six RNGs the night before, the night of, and the night after the two main ceremonies (August 30, 31, and September 1, 2013). Statistical analyses shows that the mean z score across the six RNGs during the Man Burn ceremony peaked significantly above chance 2.4 minutes after the man began to burn, and that the mean z across four RNGs running during the Temple Burn peaked 14 seconds before the beginning of the Temple Burn ceremony.

QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: How we connect with our friends, family, community and to the world at large has everything to do with the openness, empathy, and willingness to share ourselves. Often, due to abuse in life--or just plain "hard knocks", we can get shut down socially, emotionallly, and spiritually. Experience more oneness, openness and more of life by using our Vital Force Crystals. We especially recommend the Success & Achievement Crystal, as it makes it safe to open your true self to the world. You'll see that people notice.

Leading the Pack

Don Genaro I've always been a big Carlos Castaneda fan, and his semi-fictional books have always been an inspiration. Now and then I revisit some of that information, and one piece in particular kept leaping into my awareness this past couple of weeks.

I believe it was the character Don Genaro, who, after appearing to Castaneda face to face in front of the casita where they were staying, suddenly and without warning re-appeared on the casita roof.

Flabbergasted, Castaneda blurted out, "What does this mean, Don Genaro?"

Genaro paused and looked out to the horizon for a long time from his perch on the roof, then said, "It's about getting in front of your life. If life is coming at you, you're doing it wrong. Be in front--like a leader of the pack." Genaro then jumped down off the roof, but seemed to be floating. "See? Live your life as a director, not a follower."

So many things seem to "happen to us", when actually we created them, or contributed to them happening. And yet, we seem to insist on being at the effect, or victim, of our circumstances and life events. When we assume the position of victim, or being at the effect, we give up any input energy that we may be able to change things with. That stance also leads to more victim-ness, as life saunters on like a slow moving tsunami, taking out the carefully built foundations and structures we've used to keep being at the effect.

One handy mind hack is to be mindful of when you put yourself at the effect of circumstances. Then say, "Interesting thing I created there. What is my next best move?" This replaces the inner rhetoric that usually goes on: "Damn. This pattern again. Will I ever learn? I'm tired of everything working against me."... etc. etc.

pronoia What we can create--and create in an instant--is an awareness of one of my favorite concepts: "Pronoia": The feeling and observation that Life is working in your favor. If you can perceive circumstances as being to your advantage, no matter how extreme or disadvantageous, then you've begun to "lead the pack".

Leading the pack also means seeing things the way they are NOW--not compared to the way they were, or some other past perceived joyful nirvana. Chances are that joyful nirvana is a self-defeating construct intended to neutralize best intentions in the present. "Youth is wasted on the young", or "The good ol' days are gone", or "It'll never be as good as it once was." These are all victim declarations, because they instantly disempower any present or future action to create brand new ways of joy and ease.

So assume the stance of Life Leader. Get out in front of circumstances simply by assuming that point of view. Then, sally forth confident that life is always working in your favor...

The Chakras: Doorways to Well-Being

chakras The major energy centers of the body have been known for thousands of years to be a potent access point for improving and revitalizing general well-being in the body. Here are some useful ways to access this remarkable energy source:

1. Lie down in a comfortable spot away from the hustle and bustle of life. This might be your bedroom or a quiet spot on the grass under the trees — whatever it takes to minimize disturbance from discomfort and the stresses of life.

2. Take a few minutes to just lie there and breathe deeply, clearing your mind of all that everyday fuzz and becoming centered with your body.

3. Now set an intention for balancing and aligning your chakras. Apparently, the energy listens to your intentions, so this actually makes a lot of sense!

4. Place one of your hands on your first chakra (the one at the base of your spine), and another hand on your second chakra (your sacral chakra, just below your belly button). You can physically rest your hands on these areas, or allow them to hover a few inches above the body — it’s your choice.

5. Keep your hands in this position until you feel the energy between the two chakras equalize. This may be a pulsating feeling, or simply a feeling that it’s time to move onto the next chakras. If you don’t feel anything conclusive, don’t worry--simply move on after a minute or two.

6. Move your hands to your second and third chakras, and repeat this process all the way up to the seventh chakra. After you’ve balanced all the chakras, take a few minutes to simply lie there and soak in the feeling of wholeness.

Make a point of doing this every day and you’ll not only kick stress right in the unmentionables, but you’ll become much more in tune with your own body. Goodbye, doctor. Hello, chakras!

QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: Once you've balanced your chakras, protect them with our Vital Force Chakra Protection Crystal. This Swarovski Crystal is infused with powerful subtle energies using a proprietary process by Dr. Yury Kronn, a Radiophysicist. Laboratory tested and verified, this crystal is the perfect companion to any meditation practice.


Emotions Directly Affect Physical Matter

emotions affect matter Three different studies, done by different teams of scientists proved something really extraordinary. But when a new research connected these three discoveries, something shocking was realized, something hiding in plain sight: Human emotion literally shapes the world around us. Not just our perception of the world, but reality itself.

In the first experiment, human DNA, isolated in a sealed container, was placed near a test subject. Scientists gave the donor emotional stimulus and fascinatingly enough, the emotions affected their DNA in the other room. In the presence of negative emotions the DNA tightened. In the presence of positive emotions the coils of the DNA relaxed. The scientists concluded that “Human emotion produces effects which defy conventional laws of physics.”

In the second, similar but unrelated experiment, different group of scientists extracted Leukocytes (white blood cells) from donors and placed into chambers so they could measure electrical changes. In this experiment, the donor was placed in one room and subjected to “emotional stimulation” consisting of video clips, which generated different emotions in the donor. The DNA was placed in a different room in the same building. Both the donor and his DNA were monitored and as the donor exhibited emotional peaks or valleys (measured by electrical responses), the DNA exhibited the IDENTICAL RESPONSES AT THE EXACT SAME TIME. There was no lag time, no transmission time. The DNA peaks and valleys EXACTLY MATCHED the peaks and valleys of the donor in time. The scientists wanted to see how far away they could separate the donor from his DNA and still get this effect. They stopped testing after they separated the DNA and the donor by 50 miles and STILL had the SAME result. No lag time; no transmission time.

In the third experiment scientists observed the effect of DNA on our physical world. Light photons, which make up the world around us, were observed inside a vacuum. Their natural locations were completely random. Human DNA was then inserted into the vacuum. Shockingly the photons were no longer acting random. They precisely followed the geometry of the DNA. Scientists studying this described the photons behaving “surprisingly and counter-intuitively”. They went on to say that “We are forced to accept the possibility of some new field of energy!”

QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: There is a direct "give and take" between the physical world and the energies of the human body. This give and take affects DNA directly, just as DNA directly affects the physical world around us. By keeping the body and its DNA in homeostasis, we can reduce extremes of stress in our lives. Use the E-1 Formula to "modulate", or normalize, the various organ systems and energy systems of the body.


What Makes a Body Unhealthy?

cairn Lissa Rankin, M.D., author of Mind Over Medicine, suggests that the body creates symptoms and illnesses as motivators for change. "The body starts communicating via whispers -- subtle physical symptoms like a headache or lower back pain," she said. "If we ignore these whispers, the body begins to yell and that's when you face serious illness."

Life lived out of balance creates stress, which causes the adrenal glands to release cortisol (the stress hormone). Under normal conditions, stress hormones are only released at times of danger and they return to normal levels when danger is over. But many people live with so much stress that cortisol levels remain abnormally high. That raises prolactin levels, which increases the body's sensitivity to pain. When nerve endings, bones and muscle fibers are chronically bathed in stress hormones, they become hypersensitive to the point where even minor pain can feel excruciating. Autoimmune functions deteriorate, inflammation occurs and chronic pain develops.

The good news, Rankin says, is that a "mind over medicine" approach to chronic pain is highly effective. "When people work on improving their relationships, creative outlets, spirituality, sex life, environment and finances, they change their thoughts, beliefs and feelings," she explained. "They dial down stress responses and shift the nervous system into relaxation responses. Cortisol levels drop. Endorphins, the body's natural pain relievers, are released."

Rankin developed a diagnostic and treatment wellness model she calls the Whole Health Cairn. A cairn is a stack of balanced stones that stands as a memorial or landmark. In Mind Over Medicine she writes, "Like a cairn, the body is awe-inspiringly strong and resilient, and at the same time, fragile and easy to tip out of balance. If whole health is a stack of balanced stones, the body is the stone on top, the most precarious, the most likely to tumble if other stones shift."

Rankin recommends taking a good look at your life to diagnose the root causes of your stress responses. She also recommends that you practice what she calls "radical self care." Get support, believe you can heal, and seek out appropriate medical care to address your body's health needs as a whole.

QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: The Life Energy Pack provides very basic energies that e body uses to build a strong energetic foundation, which we believe is the key to health.

Making the Meaty Choice...

choice Now when I say "meaty choice", I'm not talking about shopping for barbecue... Although, metaphorically speaking, it's not far off. What we choose--decide to do--is really the basic driver of our life. This may seem obvious until it is acknowledged that in order to create anything, choices must be made.

In fact, the bigger the creation, the more "meat" or "oomph" or intention needs to be there in order for it to happen. It's easy to confuse "choice" with "preference" or "wish". Preferences and wishes are non-critical components of creating where there is nothing at stake, and it's no big whoop if they don't happen.

With the Meaty Choice, though, you've got considerable skin in the game, and the outcome resulting from the choice has far-ranging effects on the rest of your life. What gives these kinds of choice "meat" is the intention (energy) behind them, and consequences if the choice does not actualize.

We're really talking about making the kinds of choices that launch you out of the comfort zone box into a whole new life. Now, not everyone wants to get out of the box, and that's a valid choice, too. But to really change it up--if that's what you need or want to do--then the Meaty Choice is your alternative.

How do you make a Meaty Choice?

First, really DECIDE that this is what you truly, deeply want to do. You must be willing to make this decision and then stick with the choice "come hell or high water". Ironically, once the choice is made in this way, "hell and high water" usually don't come up.

time Second, what are the consequences if this choice never happens? What would your life look like in five years? What would your life look like in five years if you make the choice? Without some sort of untenable result from NOT making the choice, chances are you won't stick with it, and won't respond meaningfully to the opportunities that will come your way as a result of the choice.

Thirdly, keep making the choice, over and over. Keep creating the outcome. If you stop, or if something else becomes more important, or distracting, then you are adding time to the actualization "schedule" the Universe is attempting to provide you. Once the Meaty Choice is made, the Universe begins to have your back, and as you repeat this choice the more demonstrations of this fact will manifest. Persistence wins the day.

If you have any procrastination proclivities like I do, it's dismayingly easy to "put off" making any kind of Meaty Choice. I think this is because the reason for procrastination is to "keep options open" for something better, or the other kind of procrastination has to do with needing to be forced to do something unsavory, and time becomes the force factor.

Either way, time can be your friend or your enemy. If you are completely and thoroughly willing to "do whatever it takes" then the Universe will throw you time-sensitive opportunities that really speed stuff up. If you're procrastinating, then so does the Universe.

You want to break out of the box and live a life you've previously been just dreaming about? Make that Meaty Choice!
