In the course of my research on the unexplained human abilities, more than 150 people have told me about an experience that I had never before seen discussed. To their surprise, they thought about a friend or acquaintance for no particular reason, and then shortly afterward met that person. No one thinks it strange if he meets someone he was expecting to meet, or someone he encounters frequently. It is with unexpected meetings that the phenomenon is so striking. For example, Andreas Thomopoulos, a film director from Athens, was visiting Paris with his wife. “Walking through the streets, we thought of a close student friend of mine in London. We wondered how he was nowadays since I hadn’t seen him for over twenty years. Shortly after, on going around a corner, we bumped straight into him!” Mary Flanagan, of Hoboken, New Jersey, had a similar experience: “Walking down the street, I was thinking of someone I had not seen or spoken to for three years and who lives in a different city. I met her on the street about ten minutes after I started thinking about her.”
Anticipations of meetings even seem to occur with vehicles, rather than specific people. David Campbell had a job during the school holidays working on a construction project in County Durham, in the north of England. “We traveled to the site in the company’s van, and for no good reason I memorized the registration number of the van, I can still remember it. Anyway, the job finished and I went back to school. A couple of years later I was out with the local cycling club one Sunday morning when for some inexplicable reason I started thinking about this builder’s van and its number plate. About half a minute later the van passed me going in the opposite direction!”
Some people also anticipate encounters with animals. Some hunters and wildlife photographers seem to anticipate meetings with animals they are trying to hunt or to photograph. Some anglers have had similar experiences. Paul Hicks, for example, used to be an avid angler and would sometimes camp out by the water’s edge for days on end. “There were instances I knew for a fact that within a minute or two I was going to catch a fish. It was uncanny when that happened. It wasn’t just because the weather was good, or the time of day was right or whatever, it was just a knowledge that something was going to happen.”
Are all these cases just coincidence and selective memory? Perhaps. But perhaps there is more to them, and only further research will be able to settle this question. For a start, people who have such anticipations quite frequently could make a note of them, and then see how many were followed by actual meetings. A statistical analysis should be able to reveal whether their anticipations could in fact be explained by the coincidence hypothesis.
There is a superficial similarity between anticipating meetings and anticipating telephone calls. But in fact the two situations are very different. In the case of telephone calls, one person thinks about the other and forms an intention to call. This intention is directed toward the other person, creating appropriate conditions for telepathy. By contrast, in the case of unexpected meetings, the person thought about is not usually intending to meet the other person, or thinking about him or her. The anticipation of meetings therefore seems more precognitive than telepathic.
In addition, the anticipation of phone calls usually happens with people to whom a person is closely bonded, favoring the telepathic explanation. By contrast, the anticipation of meetings happens with mere acquaintances, or even with vehicles, or with wild animals.
Everything in this Universe carries a vibration, including the words that you speak.
For centuries, people have used words for healing. Words can be used to share a story, they can be used to pray and they can be used to express a deeper truth.
Another way words can be used for healing is through mantras. Mantras are short, positively inspired phrases that carry a powerful healing vibration and can help to free your body, mind, and soul of any stresses.
The word mantra loosely translates to “instrument of the mind”. This is because mantras have the power to transform your thinking, and rewire thought patterns and belief systems that have been engrained deep within your subconscious.
In traditional practices, it was believed that you had to chant the mantra 125,000 times in order for it to really sink in to the deepest level of your soul. While this may sound daunting, even reciting a mantra a few times over the course of a week or month can have life changing effects.
In fact, mantras are so simple yet so effective for all sorts of healing, that I have shared 150 of my most favorite and powerful mantras in a new book – My Pocket Mantras.
1.) I know I am loved and supported as I move through the day
Recite this mantra three times either out loud or quietly to yourself first thing in the morning or whenever needed. As you recite the mantra, cross your arms and wrap them around your body like you are giving yourself a big, supportive hug.
2.) This too shall pass
Recite this mantra seven times out loud or quietly to yourself during challenging life periods and when you are working through painful emotions.
3.) I surrender my worries to the Universe
Recite this mantra three times either out loud or quietly to yourself as often as needed. Visualize yourself taking your heavy coat of burdens off and handing it over to the Universe to take care of as you recite the words.
4.) I choose to feel good about myself every day
Recite this mantra three times either out loud or quietly to yourself while looking in the mirror.
5.) I am exactly where I need to be
Recite this mantra three times either out loud or quietly to yourself.
6.) I release my past and forgive myself
Recite this mantra five times either out loud or quietly to yourself as you place your hands over your heart.
7.) Everything I need to heal is already within me
Recite this mantra five times either out loud or quietly to yourself while placing your hands over your heart.
8.) Things are always working out in my favor
Recite this mantra three times either out loud or quietly to yourself.
9.) I am effortlessly creating a life I love
Recite this mantra six times either out loud or quietly to yourself.
10.) The next perfect step is always being revealed to me
Recite this mantra three times either out loud or quietly to yourself with your hands in prayer position.
11.) I use love to make all the decisions in my life
This mantra is best recited after or during meditation. You can incorporate it into your own practice, or you can use the following instructions as your guide:
Take three to four deep breaths in and out while placing your hand over your heart. Chant the mantra in your mind eleven times. Once finished, end your meditation by taking three to four deep breaths.
Increasingly science agrees with the poetry of direct human experience: we are more than the atoms and molecules that make up our bodies, but beings of light as well. Biophotons are emitted by the human body, can be released through mental intention, and may modulate fundamental processes within cell-to-cell communication and DNA.
Nothing is more amazing than the highly improbable fact that we exist. We often ignore this fact, oblivious to the reality that instead of something there could be nothing at all, i.e. why is there a universe (poignantly aware of itself through us) and not some void completely unconscious of itself?
Consider that from light, air, water, basic minerals within the crust of the earth, and the at least 3 billion year old information contained within the nucleus of one diploid zygote cell, the human body is formed, and within that body a soul capable of at least trying to comprehend its bodily and spiritual origins.
Given the sheer insanity of our existential condition, and bodily incarnation as a whole, and considering that our earthly existence is partially formed from sunlight and requires the continual consumption of condensed sunlight in the form of food, it may not sound so farfetched that our body emits light.
Indeed, the human body emits biophotons, also known as ultraweak photon emissions (UPE), with a visibility 1,000 times lower than the sensitivity of our naked eye. While not visible to us, these particles of light (or waves, depending on how you are measuring them) are part of the visible electromagnetic spectrum (380-780 nm) and are detectable via sophisticated modern instrumentation.,
The Physical and “Mental” Eye Emits Light
The eye itself, which is continually exposed to ambient powerful photons that pass through various ocular tissues, emit spontaneous and visible light-induced ultraweak photon emissions. It has even been hypothesized that visible light induces delayed bioluminescence within the exposed eye tissue, providing an explanation for the origin of the negative afterimage.
These light emissions have also been correlated with cerebral energy metabolism and oxidative stress within the mammalian brain. And yet, biophoton emissions are not necessarily epiphenomenal. Bókkon’s hypothesis suggests that photons released from chemical processes within the brain produce biophysical pictures during visual imagery, and a recent study found that when subjects actively imagined light in a very dark environment their intention produced significant increases in ultraweak photo emissions. This is consistent with an emerging view that biophotons are not solely cellular metabolic by-products, but rather, because biophoton intensity can be considerably higher inside cells than outside, it is possible for the mind to access this energy gradient to create intrinsic biophysical pictures during visual perception and imagery.
Our Cells and DNA Use Biophotons To Store and Communicate Information
Apparently biophotons are used by the cells of many living organisms to communicate, which facilitates energy/information transfer that is several orders of magnitude faster than chemical diffusion. According to a 2010 study, “Cell to cell communication by biophotons have been demonstrated in plants, bacteria, animal neutriophil granulocytes and kidney cells.” Researchers were able to demonstrate that “…different spectral light stimulation (infrared, red, yellow, blue, green and white) at one end of the spinal sensory or motor nerve roots resulted in a significant increase in the biophotonic activity at the other end.” Researchers interpreted their finding to suggest that “…light stimulation can generate biophotons that conduct along the neural fibers, probably as neural communication signals.”
Even when we go down to the molecular level of our genome, DNA can be identified to be a source of biophoton emissions as well. One author proposes that DNA is so biophoton dependent that is has excimer laser-like properties, enabling it to exist in a stable state far from thermal equilibrium at threshold.
Technically speaking a biophoton is an elementary particle or quantum of light of non-thermal origin in the visible and ultraviolet spectrum emitted from a biological system. They are generally believed to be produced as a result of energy metabolism within our cells, or more formally as a “…by-product of biochemical reactions in which excited molecules are produced from bioenergetic processes that involves active oxygen species,” 
The Body’s Circadian Biophoton Output
Because the metabolism of the body changes in a circadian fashion, biophoton emissions also variate along the axis of diurnal time.  Research has mapped out distinct anatomical locations within the body where biophoton emissions are stronger and weaker, depending on the time of the day:
Generally, the fluctuation in photon counts over the body was lower in the morning than in the afternoon. The thorax-abdomen region emitted lowest and most constantly. The upper extremities and the head region emitted most and increasingly over the day. Spectral analysis of low, intermediate and high emission from the superior frontal part of the right leg, the forehead and the palms in the sensitivity range of the photomultiplier showed the major spontaneous emission at 470-570 nm. The central palm area of hand emission showed a larger contribution of the 420-470 nm range in the spectrum of spontaneous emission from the hand in autumn/winter. The spectrum of delayed luminescence from the hand showed major emission in the same range as spontaneous emission.
The researchers concluded that “The spectral data suggest that measurements might well provide quantitative data on the individual pattern of peroxidative and anti-oxidative processes in vivo.”
Meditation and Herbs Affect Biophoton Output
Research has found an oxidative stress-mediated difference in biophoton emission among mediators versus non-meditators. Those who meditate regularly tend to have lower ultra-weak photon emission (UPE, biophoton emission), which is believed to result from the lower level of free radical reactions occurring in their bodies. In one clinical study involving practitioners of transcendental meditation (TM) researchers found:
The lowest UPE intensities were observed in two subjects who regularly meditate. Spectral analysis of human UPE has suggested that ultra-weak emission is probably, at least in part, a reflection of free radical reactions in a living system. It has been documented that various physiologic and biochemical shifts follow the long-term practice of meditation and it is inferred that meditation may impact free radical activity.
Interestingly, an herb well-known for its use in stress reduction (including inducing measurable declines in cortisol), and associated heightened oxidative stress, has been tested clinically in reducing the level of biophotons emitted in human subjects. Known as rhodiola, a study published in 2009 in the journal Phytotherapeutic Research found that those who took the herb for 1 week has a significant decrease in photon emission in comparison with the placebo group.
Human Skin May Capture Energy and Information from Sunlight
Perhaps most extraordinary of all is the possibility that our bodily surface contains cells capable of efficiently trapping the energy and information from ultraviolet radiation. A study published in the Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology in 1993, titled, “Artificial sunlight irradiation induces ultraweak photon emission in human skin fibroblasts,” discovered that when light from an artificial sunlight source was applied to fibroblasts from either normal subjects or with the condition xeroderma pigmentosum, characterized by deficient DNA repair mechanisms, it induced far higher emissions of ultraweak photons (10-20 times) in the xeroderma pigmentosum group. The researchers concluded from this experiment that “These data suggest that xeroderma pigmentosum cells tend to lose the capacity of efficient storage of ultraweak photons, indicating the existence of an efficient intracellular photon trapping system within human cells.“ More recent research has also identified measurable differences in biophoton emission between normal and melanoma cells.
Melanin is capable of transforming ultraviolet light energy into heat in a process known as “ultrafast internal conversion”; more than 99.9% of the absorbed UV radiation is transformed from potentially genotoxic (DNA-damaging) ultraviolet light into harmless heat.
If melanin can convert light into heat, could it not also transform UV radiation into other biologically/metabolically useful forms of energy? This may not seem so farfetched when one considers that even gamma radiation, which is highly toxic to most forms of life, is a source of sustenance for certain types of fungi and bacteria.
The Body’s Biophoton Outputs Are Governed by Solar and Lunar Forces
It appears that modern science is only now coming to recognize the ability of the human body to receive and emit energy and information directly from the light given off from the Sun. 
There is also a growing realization that the Sun and Moon affect biophoton emissions through gravitational influences. Recently, biophoton emissions from wheat seedlings in Germany and Brazil were found to be synchronized transcontinentally according to rhythms associated with the lunisolar tide. In fact, the lunisolar tidal force, to which the Sun contributes 30 % and the Moon 60 % of the combined gravitational acceleration, has been found to regulate a number of features of plant growth upon Earth.
Intention Is a Living Force of Physiology
Even human intention itself, the so-called ghost in the machine, may have an empirical basis in biophotons.
A recent commentary published in the journal Investigacion clinica titled “Evidence about the power of intention” addressed this connection:
Intention is defined as a directed thought to perform a determined action. Thoughts targeted to an end can affect inanimate objects and practically all living things from unicellular organisms to human beings. The emission of light particles (biophotons) seems to be the mechanism through which an intention produces its effects. All living organisms emit a constant current of photons as a mean to direct instantaneous nonlocal signals from one part of the body to another and to the outside world. Biophotons are stored in the intracellular DNA. When the organism is sick changes in biophotons emissions are produced. Direct intention manifests itself as an electric and magnetic energy producing an ordered flux of photons. Our intentions seem to operate as highly coherent frequencies capable of changing the molecular structure of matter. For the intention to be effective it is necessary to choose the appropriate time. In fact, living beings are mutually synchronized and to the earth and its constant changes of magnetic energy. It has been shown that the energy of thought can also alter the environment. Hypnosis, stigmata phenomena and the placebo effect can also be considered as types of intention, as instructions to the brain during a particular state of consciousness. Cases of spontaneous cures or of remote healing of extremely ill patients represent instances of an exceedingly great intention to control diseases menacing our lives. The intention to heal as well as the beliefs of the sick person on the efficacy of the healing influences promote his healing. In conclusion, studies on thought and consciousness are emerging as fundamental aspects and not as mere epiphenomena that are rapidly leading to a profound change in the paradigms of Biology and Medicine.
“Remind yourself that loving words and loving thoughts seem to be supercharged with power to produce good.” —Catherine Ponder
How would you like to have words that turn your subconscious mind on like a light switch to create more of what you want? This may be better relationships, enhanced peace, creativity or abundance. Switchwords, created by James Mangan in the 1960’s, for many people, do just that.
When I encounter people caught up in a scarcity and fear mentality, I want to instill their power back to them. Of course, each person must do this for himself or herself. I want to explain that speaking about what we want really serves us well.
James Mangan gave us The Secret Of Perfect Living in the 1960s. Mangan explains that there are certain words that can be used with intention to get more of what we want. He coined the phrase “Switchwords.” These power words will turn on our subconscious like a switch with focused intent. Mangan spent 45 years of his life researching and finding these words for us. For those of us who connect with them, they are a wonderful tool for creating and enjoying life more. They help to lift our consciousness to a Divine state. They help release fear and put us back in our power.
These words have been known to help people with all kinds of situations. I have a dear friend who called me upset because she was overseas in Paris, France and lost her purse. She was in a little shop and set it down. She walked away and soon realized it was gone. By the time she went back to find her purse, no one knew where it was. She called me crying and worried that she would be without funds for the rest of her trip. I told her to remain calm and say the Switchword “Reach” anytime she worried about her purse (Reach is the Switchword to find anything lost). Her credit card was canceled and she was sent funds to enjoy the remainder of her trip. Anytime she thought about her purse she said, “Reach”. She told me that she must have said “Reach” a thousand time. The next day the Paris police called her. They had her purse and wanted to make arrangements to return it. She called me ecstatic with the wonderful news. Her purse was returned with all her money and credit card in it. This is just one of many miracles created with Switchwords.
Needless to say, “Reach” is one of my favorite Switchwords and I use it with success to find anything lost. I also use reach to get the best parking spots. Be sure to say Reach and forget about it, knowing you will find your object in Divine time. Attachment to the outcome slows the process.
Switchwords may be said aloud or to ourselves. Obviously in public it is best to keep them to ourselves, as others negative comments or energy will dispel their power.
I will now share some of the words that allow more prosperity of health, love and wealth:
TOGETHER – is the master Switchword. Together pulls together our conscious, subconscious and super-conscious mind to bring out the best in us — our God Self. Please use Together in all of your Switchword combinations, as it brings the whole creation Together perfectly.
DIVINE – to create the extraordinary (or miracle). I get wonderful results with the word Divine and use it in all my combinations, which we will discuss next.
LOVE – Love is, of course, the most powerful force in the world. When we say “Love,” it wraps a healing energy around the person who sends it and the receiver.
BE – to be in radiant health and connected to our God mind.
LEARN – to make youthful in appearance and thought.
CURVE – to make beautiful or handsome.
REACH – “Reach” is one of my favorite Switchwords. We may use reach to find anything we have lost. Simply say reach and go about your business. You will be guided to what you are looking for in the perfect time. Reach can also be used to reach emotional states like joy and bliss.
Change – To get rid of any unwanted physical condition or mental state. Say Change and forget it. Then if you notice the pain or thought, say Change again and forget it.
Clear – To clear a negative thought. Perfect for conscious creators.
Praise – To stop finding fault with others or ourselves.
Bluff – To dispel fear or worry. If one has anxiety, say bluff, bluff, bluff. The idea is to bluff and pretend everything is alright. And it really is.
Ho – To relax. Say ho enough times and you will yawn.
WHOLE – to understand that we have everything we need within ourselves. There is no need to look for it in another.
PLETHORA – I discovered the word “Plethora” during a period when I wanted to constantly remind myself that there is more than enough of everything for everyone. Competition for resources is an illusion. There is a plethora of health, money and mates.
COUNT – to attract money. The theory behind this word is that every time we see a pile of coins lying around, we automatically start counting them in our mind.
FIND – “to find a fortune.” Say, “Find,” when you want to attract wealth and abundance.
We will also benefit by using combinations of the Switchwords. Always use Together in your combos for great results. Feel free to create your own combinations of Switchwords, as the only rule is to enjoy the process.
Here are some suggestions:
TOGETHER DIVINE LOVE – this activates love in any relationship or situation. It is perfect for solving fights and communication problems. This combination will create wonderful results when said to yourself or aloud with intention.
TOGETHER DIVINE PRAISE – To make ourselves more physically attractive and stop finding fault with others.
TOGETHER DIVINE LEARN CURVE – to make youthful and beautiful or handsome. (very transformative for looking our best)
TOGETHER DIVINE FIND COUNT – this combination creates wealth and income when said consistently with belief.
BE TOGETHER DIVINE – this combination may be used to attract vibrant health on all levels.
TOGETHER DIVINE TIMING – if you ever find yourself needing things to move faster than they are, simply say, “Divine timing,” and remind yourself that everything is working out perfectly in the perfect time. If you go with the flow, important components to your success will fall right into place.
Anytime you find yourself doubting your ability to succeed, say one of these Switchwords until you feel your energy shift. This is another great way of focusing your mind and energy now. As you practice this, you will notice these tools just come to you when needed. They will become a very good habit. Switchwords are like anything else in that the more we practice and play with them the better we get. So be patient and let go of any attachment to results. You will soon find yourself becoming a Switchword Master and creating on levels you never imagined.
Certain spiritual teachings can be very confusing when we first hear them, whether we are scientists, or not. When back in the 1970’s, the physicist Fred Alan Wolf created the evocative phrase “we create our own reality,” it sounded good, but gave rise to many disappointments. People tried to manifest fancy automobiles, vegetable gardens in desert environments, or parking spaces in busy downtown areas. Wolf based his phrase on the work of mathematician, John von Neumann, who first introduced the idea of the “collapse” of consciousness, which occurs when the quantum wave of possibility “chooses” one of its facets, which then becomes actualized.
Yet many attempts to follow through and create our own reality produced a mixed bag of outcomes because the would-be-creators were unaware of something important:
We create our own reality, yes, but we don’t do that in our ordinary state of consciousness, but in a non-ordinary state of consciousness. The paradox of Wigner’s friend, articulated by Eugene Wigner, a Nobel laureate physicist, helps to clarify this.
Wigner approaches a quantum traffic light which offers two possibilities: red and green. Simultaneously, Wigner’s friend approaches the same light from the road perpendicular to Wigner’s. They both choose green, but their choices are contradictory. If both choices materialize at the same time, there would be pandemonium. Obviously, only one of them gets to choose, but who?
An understanding of narcissism offers an insight as we go about trying to create our own reality. How could it be that only one person in the world is sentient, and the rest of us only exist within this person’s imagination?
Three physicists independently resolved Wigner’s paradox. They were Ludwig Bass in Australia, myself at Oregon, and Casey Blood at Rutgers, New Jersey. The solution was simply this: Consciousness is one, nonlocal and cosmic, behind the local individuality of Wigner and his friend. Although both men want the green light, the one consciousness chooses for both of them, avoiding any contradiction. The one consciousness chooses such that the result dictated by quantum probability calculations is validated: Wigner and his friend each get green fifty percent of the time. Yet for any individual crossing, a creative opportunity for getting green is left open for each.
In formulating my theory about this, the underlying question was: What is the nature of consciousness that enables it to be the free agent of downward causation without any paradox?
The answer was: Consciousness has to be unitive, one and only for all of us. This oneness of consciousness is the basis of our theories about it.
When my paper proclaiming this was published back in 1989, a University of Mexico neurophysiologist Jacobo Grinberg-Zylberbaum noticed it. Grinberg was studying novel transfers of electrical brain-activity between two people. Intuiting that my theory was relevant to his research, he asked me to visit his laboratory, check out his experimental set up, and the data, to help him interpret it. Soon Grinberg and collaborators wrote the first paper proclaiming a modern scientific verification of the idea of oneness of consciousness.
The Good News Experiment: We Are One?
Since then, four separate experiments have shown that quantum consciousness, the author of downward causation, is nonlocal, and unitive. Quantum physics provides an amazing principle to operate with—nonlocality. The principle of locality says that all communication must proceed through local signals with speed limits. Einstein established the speed of light as the speed limit. This precludes instantaneous communication via signals. And yet, quantum objects are able to influence one another instantly, once they interact and become correlated through quantum nonlocality. In 1982, physicist Alain Aspect and his collaborators confirmed this with a pair of photons (quanta of light). There’s no contradiction to Einsteinian thinking, once we recognize quantum nonlocality for what it is—a signal-less interconnectedness outside space and time.
Grinberg, in 1993, was trying to demonstrate quantum nonlocality for two correlated brains. Two people meditate together with the intention of direct (signalless, nonlocal) communication. After twenty minutes, they are separated (while still continuing their unifying intention), placed in individual Faraday cages (electromagnetically impervious chambers), and each brain is wired up to an electroencephalogram (EEG) machine. One subject is shown a series of light flashes producing in his or her brain an electrical activity that is recorded in the EEG machine, producing an “evoked potential” extracted by a computer from the brain noise. Surprisingly, the same evoked potential was found to appear in the other subject’s brain, and viewable on the EEG of this subject (again minus brain noise). This is called a “transferred potential,” but is similar to the evoked potential in phase and strength. Control subjects (those who neither meditate together nor can hold the intention for signal-less communication during the duration of the experiment) do not show any transferred potential.
Obviously, the experiment demonstrates the nonlocality of brain responses, but it also demonstrates the nonlocality of quantum consciousness. How else to explain how the forcedchoice of the evoked response in one subject’s brain can lead to the freechoice of an (almost) identical response in the correlated partner’s brain? As stated above, the experiment, since then has been replicated several times by the neuropsychiatrist Peter Fenwick and collaborators in 1998 in London, by Jiri Wackermann et al in 2003, and by the Bastyr university researcher Leana Standish and her collaborators in 2004.
The conclusion derived from these experiments is radical, and can integrate science and spirituality, Vedanta style. Quantum consciousness, the precipitator of the downward causation of choice from quantum possibilities is what esoteric spiritual traditions of many traditions call God. (In Sanskrit, Ishwara.) In a sense, we have rediscovered God within science. However it is within a new paradigm of science, based not on the primacy of matter as in the old science, but on the primacy of consciousness. Consciousness is the ground of all being which we now can recognize as what the spiritual tradition of Vedanta calls Brahman, and what esoteric Christianity calls Godhead, or Christ.
The Power of Intention
Grinberg’s experiment also demonstrates the power of our intention, which parapsychologist Dean Radin has also studied. One of Radin’s experiments took place during the O. J. Simpson trial, when many people were watching the trial on TV. Radin correctly hypothesized that the intentions of the viewing audience would widely fluctuate depending on whether the courtroom drama was intense or ho-hum. This activity, he theorized, might influence random number generators. Radin asked a group of psychologists to plot and note down in real time the intensity of the courtroom drama. Meanwhile, in the laboratory, Radin measured the deviations of random number generators. He found that the random number generators maximally deviated from randomness precisely when the courtroom drama was high. What does this mean? The philosopher Gregory Bateson said, “the opposite of randomness is choice.” So the correlation proves the creative power of intention.
In another series of experiments, Radin found that random number generators deviate from randomness in meditation halls when people meditate together (showing high intention), but not at a corporate board meeting!
I’ll bet you’re wondering how to develop the power of intention. We all try to manifest things through our intentions, sometimes they work, but less often than not. This is because we are in our ego, rather than higher consciousness, when we intend. But how do we change that?
I propose a four stage process: An intention must start with the ego since that is where we ordinarily are, local, selfish. At the second stage, we intend for everyone to go beyond selfishness. We don’t need to worry, we haven’t lost anything. When we say “everyone” that includes us, too. In the third stage, we allow our intentions to become a prayer: if my intention resonates with the intention of the whole, of quantum consciousness, then let it come to fruition. At the fourth stage, the prayer must pass into silence, become a meditation.
You may have seen a recent movie, The Secret or have read a book by the same name. The movie talks about the secret of manifestation through our intention. The main message is good. To manifest, the book and the movie teach us, not only do we have to actively intend, but also have to learn to passively wait. Maybe the intended object will come to us. That’s why I too recommend that we end in silence, waiting.
If we wait too long, however, we may forget what we were intending. So we cut short the waiting and be active again in our search. In this way the real secret of manifestation is an alternation between doing and being. I sometimes call this a do-be-do-be-do lifestyle. In India, we are in a be-be-be lifestyle, haven’t you noticed? In America and the West, of course, it is do-do-do. The connoisseur of manifestation via intention-making takes the middle path, do-be-do-be-do.
There is one final secret: How do we know what consciousness intends so we can align our intention with it? The answer is creative evolution. Consciousness intends to evolve us toward greater good for everyone through creative evolution.

Always begin with gratitude. This is the wisdom advice that comes to us from many of the world’s indigenous and contemplative teachings. In this spirit, we begin our first blog for The Huffington Postexploring this profoundly transformative spiritual practice, and invite you to join us in taking this powerful awareness and action into your heart and onto your path of deepening spirit in daily life, work, and relationships.
The practice of gratitude antidotes two root sufferings that pervade the human experience. The first can be characterized as a feeling of “insufficiency” — not having enough or not being enough. This fundamental sense of dissatisfaction opens the way to the second kind of suffering — being incessantly busy trying to get more or be more in order to somehow fill this inner feeling of discontentment and lack.
Each morning, as you lie in bed before getting up or after getting up, take a moment just to think of what would make this day true and rewarding for you. Intend your day to bring you fulfillment. Just a few examples: If you are going to be meeting with a friend, intend that that meeting will be joyous and fruitful for you. If you are working on some negotiation, intend that the outcome will be positive. If it is a day of rest, intend that you will find in the freedom of the day new knowledge and certainty.
Intention: Positively directed intention creates for me joy and fulfillment.
Hands to Heart Center: There are times when we are feeling stressed or overwhelmed in our daily lives. This is a time to stop, stand firmly on your two feet, take a deep breath, and bring your hands to your heart center with palms together or cross your hands, one on top of the other. Take a moment to feel your heart, to listen to your heart, to be with yourself. Connect with the energies of the Earth and the Universe and feel the light all around. As you connect with all things, you can see the true meaning and importance of WHO you are. You can accomplish anything as long as you stand firm in WHO you are and act from your heart. You will find more clarity and better perspective. While you are firm within your heart, take a moment to look at your priorities. Then breathe deeply and move on with your day.
INTENTION: By connecting with my heart, I find my inner power.
