The article we found on the MedicalXpress.com website may not surprise many of our readers, but it is encouraging to see things like this appear in a very mainstream medical website.
In an article entitled “Long-term meditation leads to different brain organization”, the author reveals that several studies “have shown that this type of meditation may have beneficial effects on long-term emotional stability and, consequently, on disorders such as anxiety and major depression.”
The article provides a lot of information on how one particular study was carried out and ends on this note. Veronica Taylor, the lead author of the study published in the journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Advance Access in March 2012 says”
We keep featuring William Buhlman here since he is such an expert on the out of body experience. One of his first books on the subject was Adventures Beyond the Body which was published in 1996. Since then he has given hundreds of workshops around the country and is a trainer at The Monroe Institute established by another pioneer in OBE, Robert Monroe.
After a near death experience, a lot changes occur, at least according to those who have had this experience. One such person is Dan Matthews who had his in August 1992 and came back on a mission to help people reconnect to the parts of their soul which have been fragmented since the dawn of time and move gracefully through shifting paradigms with a complete connection to the God Presence within.
Here is how Dr. Matthews describes the reason he is doing the work he is doing:
As might be expected, Dr. Matthews also has out-of-body experiences (OBE) and shares one of these experiences in a video on his site. You can watch the first one below. Then let us know what you think.
In a March article published in Popular Archaeology, monumental structures were built to manipulate sound for sensory and mind effects, revealed in recent research. Read full article from the magazine.
When the builders of monumental structures designed their monumental buildings, they did so not only for usage of space and visual impact but to produce certain sensory effects and manipulate sound.
The article explains how archaeologists studied a 6,000-year-old stone structure complex known as the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum on the island of Malta, and discovered that the interior spaces produce interesting effects.
The article goes on to describe how low voices within its walls create eerie, reverberating echoes, and a sound made or words spoken in certain places can be clearly heard throughout all of its three levels.
“The findings indicated that at 110 Hz the patterns of activity over the prefrontal cortex abruptly shifted, resulting in a relative deactivation of the language center and a temporary shifting from left to right-sided dominance related to emotional processing and creativity.”
