This Hypnotic Meditation Helps To Access Universal Wisdom You’ve Always Known

Article originally written by Jennifer Sodini and published at www.collective-evolution.com

About a year ago, after a synchronistic meeting, I was introduced to “hypno-coach” (hypnotherapist/life coach) Grace Smith. I had always been fascinated by hypnosis and its potential, however, I was never really certain how it worked, or if it could work for me. Being interested in past lives, but not having a solid opinion on the matter, getting a past life regression (in particular) was something I had always dreamed of experiencing.

One day, Grace was visiting my town, and we opted to swap services; I read her tarot in exchange for a “Soulkey” hypnosis session. As Grace states:

Soulkey therapy was developed by a friend and mentor of mine, Martin Peterson. There are very few certified practitioners around the world and I am proud to count myself among them, along with the honor of having been appointed director of Soulkey, USA. Soulkey therapy is a way of accessing a heightened level of “inner knowing” and shared, seemingly universal, allegory.light_of_wisdom_lotus_buddha_pyramid_hd-wallpaper-1413721

What this means is that, often times, clients with diverse backgrounds and very little in common on the surface, share deeply similar experiences during their Soulkey sessions, without having any prior knowledge of what to expect. For examples, clients regularly describe the “room” in which the Soulkey session takes place (as imagined in the mind), and their descriptive terms can sometimes be identical. I purposefully do not describe what the “room” “looks like” prior to the session for this reason; it never ceases to amaze me how many of clients all seem to “go to” the same exact “room” as soon as the process begins.

New Proof That Our Emotions Cause Physical Pain & How We can Change It

Article written by Christina Sarich and originally posted by www.collective-evolution.com

In the ancient arts of Chinese Medicine, Yoga, and Ayurveda, there was no doubt among practitioners that anger could cause a heart attack, or chronic sadness could cause dementia. It was not unusual for a master to exterminate chronic pain in different joints and muscles, or even to cure liver, kidney, or stomach diseases by addressing deeply held emotions like fear, frustration, jealousy, and anxiety.

These feats have been dismissed by modern medicine as placebo, or simply glazed over with the latest pharmaceutical prescription at most doctors’ offices, but new evidence has emerged that proves our emotions directly affect our physical health.

Is Your Sadness Causing Your Symptoms?

The phenomenon of emotional health being inextricably linked to physical health has been negated by modern medicine repeatedly, with only small allowances made in integrative medicine, and extremely few studies which support this idea making their way into mainstream publications.

3926631f801201586996f16207a27cd0Nonetheless, the Pharmageddon trend plagues this country. We’re quick to admit that we are depressed, too. The makers of depression drugs are raking it in, enjoying over $14 billion in annual sales, with antipsychotics remaining the top-selling therapeutic class of prescription drugs in the US. But the sick-care industry doesn’t really look into how our emotions cause sickness in the body.

I’m not talking about the idea that stress can cause disease, either. Modern health practitioners have largely accepted this general fact, with stress having a noticeable affect on heart disease and obesity rates. Continue reading

Did An Extraterrestrial Spaceship Crash On Earth 12,000 Years Ago?

In what is purported to be one of the most covered up stories regarding alien discovery, aliens are reported to have crash landed on Earth 12,000 years ago and, before being killed off by humans, left evidence of their existence for future generations of our species to discover.

As the story goes, the evidence was found amongst rows of graves in the prehistoric caves of Baian Kara Ula on the border of China and Tibet by Chinese professor Chi Pu Tei in 1938.

The skeletons found were incredibly fragile and had large, over developed skulls. The graves were accompanied by intriguing drawings on the cave wall as well as 716 of what appeared to be gramophone record-like objects made of stone buried in the cave.

The object contained alien writing in a never before seen language that researchers attempted to decode for over 20 years until Chinese Dr. Tsum Um Nui decoded the message in 1962.

After he did, the Prehistory Department of the Beijing Academy in China reportedly refused to publish his paper or even acknowledge his findings.

Tsum Um Nui persisted and his work was eventually published, leading the world to hear of what is now known as the Dropa stones.

Understandably, there is quite a bit of skepticism regarding this story – as there should be. However, one good question the whole thing does bring up in my mind is how humans would react if the story did actually play out the way it is suggested to have; what would happen if aliens really did crash land on earth?

My guess is that we’d react in exactly the same way the humans in this story are purported to have, either killing the beings off or subjecting them to inhumane tests.

All in all, I believe this story should be approached as any other theory regarding aliens should be – with a bit of skepticism on both sides of the coin… or stone?

Deepak Chopra Gives a Beautiful Explanation on How To Meditate


Through meditation you can reverse the effect of the more toxic elements in our lives—negative habits, emotions, environment, substances, thoughts, etc. The key, as he describes it, is to experience inner silence so that the body returns to homeostasis and self-repair.

In this short video he talks about mediation methods and specifically place, posture, mantra, and mental attitude/technique.

Meditation can remove stress and replace it with a dose of inner peace. It’s one of the best tools we have to balance our emotions, deal with physical and psychological distress, and promote the peace of the present moment. But it can be tough to meditate without a teacher or guide.
