The Myths of Science

We all need help to increase our self healing abilities. This is still a vast untapped resource within us. The potential within you is vast. Most of us are hardly tapping much of it.

Why?

One of the biggest road blocks to expanding your effectiveness in self healing body mindfulness I believe, is how we (myself included) from the day we were born, have been indoctrinated by science. This has become subconscious for most of us and is a huge hidden cultural belief system in western countries.

“Contemporary science is based on the claim that all reality is material or physical. There is no reality but material reality. Consciousness is a by-product of the physical activity of the brain. Matter is unconscious. Evolution is purposeless. God exists only as an idea in human minds, and hence in human heads.”
(Rupert Sheldrake, The Science Delusion, 2012)

I talk a lot about the hold of the intellect and it’s hindrance in self healing in this blog. This intellect has been indoctrinated by the old beliefs of science which most scientists have never seriously questioned.

If you want more help, to break this block further I highly recommend Rupert Sheldrake book above. This is a brilliant scientist. He break the ten myths that science still believes are true. When in lived experience we know today, that they are not.

Rupert gave a TED talk on this topic some years ago and guess what? The talk was banned from the TED website! This is how threatened current old-school scientist were. TED talks are always on the edge and push the boundaries of what we have known. “Ideas worth spreading” their catch cry. So when I heard about this ban, I immediately thought we must have a real pioneer here. So I checked him out and I was right.

Check out his ex TED talk on YouTube here, (1.5m views) it’s freely available. This is brilliant pioneering scientific myth breaking and it will help your intellect and mind free up even more.

When do you ‘hang in there’ and when do you quit?

“We fail when we get distracted by tasks we don’t have the guts to quit.” (Seth Godin, The Dip, 2011) One of the problems with the intellect is that it is very good at giving you reasons to do a lot of things. You can make a case for doing many things and making themContinue Reading

Feel Positive, Live Longer

Last post covered the health of your Heart. In this one, we focus on longevity. “Just as attitude affects the heart,…Yale scientists even concluded that attitude was more influential than blood pressure, cholesterol levels, lack of smoking, a healthy body weight and exercise levels in how long a person lived.” (Hamilton, David R, Ph.D, HowContinue Reading

Anger and its link to the risk of Heart Disease (Attack)

I focused on Cancer in the last post. This week we look at Heart Disease (Heart Attack). “The connection between attitude and the heart is so reliable that a 30 year study published in 2003 in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that ‘…hostility is one of the most reliable indicators of coronaryContinue Reading

No Exaggerated Benefits

There are many benefits to Mindfulness Meditation and many more with Body Mindfulness. These benefits are described in many mindfulness books.

The Art of Achieving a Goal

One of the ways you can use your Mindfulness practice is to focus on a positive goal that you are wanting to accomplish. How you do this is very important. Visualising an outcome helps reprogram your brain and nervous system to make this happen much easier. But visualising alone is not enough. You need toContinue Reading

Pockets of Peace

Finding pockets of peace throughout your day is a very healthy sign and a release valve for the stresses that come at you all day long. A lot of our diseases and issues stem from such stress. What is stress? The pressure you feel in your mind and body and the pressure your body feelsContinue Reading

Disconnection from your Body can cause so much Misery

It never ceases to amaze me when a client has a problem (health/habit/phobia/limitation//trauma/psychological etc), that it can be changed rapidly just by bringing the focus into the body while the head is still trying to work it all out (the old way.) Some words of wisdom that can save you a lot of time, drama,Continue Reading
