“The Brain That Changes Itself “awesome book on the research and use of Nero-plasticity.


The power of positive thinking finally gains scientific credibility. Mind-bending, miracle-making, reality-busting stuff…with implications for all human beings, not to mention human culture, human learning and human history.

The discovery of neuroplasticity, that our thoughts can change the structure and function of our brains, even into old age, is the most important breakthrough in our understanding of the brain in four hundred years.

Dr. Norman DoidgeDr. Norman Doidge introduces principles we can all use to overcome a number of brain limitations and explores the profound brain implications of the changing brain in an immensely moving book that will permanently alter the way we look at human possibility and human nature.

ACBTV Sunday – What Is Reality?

Anyone see this program? Seems that science is experiencing a dilemma. The lines between mathematics, physics and philosophy are becoming more blurred all the time. Seems the latest information is pointing to the whole universe being nothing more than a hologram, or as they explained it; like pictures that looks 3 dimensional but are really 2 dimensional?? Could that be because it is all only energy anyway?

Reduce Your Stress Hormones: (which cause inflammation, anxiety and illness)

milestone study has found that EFT significantly reduces levels of your main stress hormone, cortisol. No KNOWN DRUG can do this. Cortisol is important because it regulates a cascade of other biochemicals that affect everything from your digestive system to your musculoskeletal system.

High cortisol levels are associated with signs of rapid aging, like skin wrinkles and the loss of bone density.

The study examined 83 people who received a single session of either talk therapy or EFT, and a third group that just rested. We tested their levels of cortisol before and afterwards, and found that cortisol declined 24% in the EFT group, compared to 14% in the other two groups.

People in the EFT group also had much greater reductions in anxiety, depression and other psychological problems. The study will be published in a prestigious journal in October, Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease. It’s the oldest peer-reviewed psychiatry journal in North America.

This study is a great way to talk to your doctor or psychologist about EFT, because it uses the kind of biological standards with which they’re familiar. It’s pioneering because it uses the “hard science” of molecular biology to measure the “soft science” of emotional healing.

We’ve written up a press release on the study which you can link to from your web site, or forward to your physician.

What You Are Not Supposed to Know?

“Healthy, Wealthy and Wise. That’s an old saying, but one as true today as back then. Why do health and wealth so often intersect for wise people?

And how can you become one of them? If you look at wealthy people, you’re often struck by how healthy they are. Flip through the pages of Fortune magazine or The Economist —magazines read by the most influential people in the world—and you won’t find a lot of ailing corporate executives or world leaders.

That’s because they have access to the best health information in the world.

Notice that I said health information and not health care. What passes for health care in most Western societies, called the “standard of care,” often lags years or even decades behind the best information currently available.

All kinds of cures and diagnostic tools that are available to the wisest and best-informed people are unknown to the mainstream medical professions.

You’ve probably read about some amazing breakthrough, but then come to the paragraph near the end of the article where the researchers caution that it will be five to fifteen years before that discovery becomes a viable therapy.”

Over 100 Years Club – Can Anyone Add to this?

Last week on Compass (ABC1 I think) the program reported on people who were over 100 years of age, and yes there are enough for a club!

It was fascinating and amazing to see how much these men and women were still doing and enjoying, did anyone see it?

One thing that stood out for me was the ’emotional state’ of everyone, they were happy people making the most of their lives, AND they were also very low on “extreme emotions’ in other words these are not people who waste energy or struggle with, high and low emotional swings. OR harbour a lot of negative emotions, like anger guilt or sadness. I think the word is ‘balance’ (done to death I know, but it is simply that simple).

It is a choice, and if you were not fortunate enough to learn how to be content and happy in childhood, then take the OPPORTUNITY to learn now. By learning skillful communications (with yourself as much as others), you CAN achieve an emotionally balanced and content healthy life.
