This is a very powerful essence that has been created in response torepparttar fear being brought about NOW byrepparttar 122233 current earth climatic and energy changes. The essence will help speed each person's growth. This is an ideal essence to keep handy in your first aid box, travelling kit, car or handbag, ready to be used at a moments notice.

The purpose ofrepparttar 122234 above information is not to put people in fear, I am simply stating that this is what is occuring and this is what is being done about it. Working at night is not a new concept, many peoples inrepparttar 122235 past have done this. We are multidimensional beings, here on this dimension living in a body, having experiences andrepparttar 122236 last year has truly brought this home to me.

It is Reiki that has brought me to this point in my life. We are fortunate to have been taught byrepparttar 122237 Lama. One ofrepparttar 122238 things he was adamant about is thatrepparttar 122239 Master Attunement should not be split into two parts, because it causes stress torepparttar 122240 physical body and for some people who are very sensitive, it causes emotional and mental distress. Hilary and I had first hand experience of this, luckily for only one day, as I attuned her to Master 2Brepparttar 122241 next day. We have also been told that all attunements are now being accompanied by another given byrepparttar 122242 Tibetan Monks, who always assist at these ceremonies, this extra attunement is to help people to cope withrepparttar 122243 unfolding world events.

The Problem of Unconsciousness

Written by Peter M.K. Chan

Continued from page 1

So, this is what I mean byrepparttar problem of unconsciousness - temporary loss of consciousness and permanent loss of memory. One possible dance out of this problem, ifrepparttar 122232 reader have not already guessed, is to say that sincerepparttar 122233 body-brain isrepparttar 122234 equipment ofrepparttar 122235 soul, it should only be expected that its operations would be affected when part ofrepparttar 122236 equipment is damaged. That sounds plausible, but not exactly coherent. For one thing, if consciousness and memory were onrepparttar 122237 side ofrepparttar 122238 soul as claimed, it is incoherent to think that a soul would lose its consciousness and memory simply because part of its equipment is down. As a matter of fact, if this type of reasoning were allowed, it would be equivalent to admitting that consciousness and memory are partially dependent onrepparttar 122239 body-brain, if not totally carried by it. That would renderrepparttar 122240 soul theory very confusing indeed. It should thus be seen that unless this problem is also coherently explained, this traditional belief inrepparttar 122241 detachability of soul from body is about to graduate fromrepparttar 122242 kinder garden of empirical experience.

The crux ofrepparttar 122243 problem is this. If consciousness and memory were indeed onrepparttar 122244 side ofrepparttar 122245 soul as presumed, it should follow that temporary unconsciousness and permanent loss of memory for anyone under any bodily circumstance should not have occurred. The fact that these do occur should be sufficient to show that belief inrepparttar 122246 persistence of persons as souls in a spiritual hereafter is not really intelligible for what it is about. More torepparttar 122247 point, what this means is that it is more straightforward and probable to believe that consciousness and memory arerepparttar 122248 feats of body-brains. It also means that a human person should not have been construed asrepparttar 122249 composite of a body and a soul, much less that consciousness and memory could actually be carried forward byrepparttar 122250 soul into a spiritual realm.

But why, you may wonder, are there still so many soul-believers around? Let me submit thatrepparttar 122251 main reasons are two. One is our human desire for a more pleasant time in a personal hereafter. The other is that it is not easy to explain how consciousness, memory, and thought could possibly have arisen from body-brains or any of their material constituents. How is it possible for a mere material thing such asrepparttar 122252 brain with texture not too unlike bean curd and ice cream, to become conscious, remember and think? This is a question that has refused to go away. And if I may say so, this is alsorepparttar 122253 reason whyrepparttar 122254 belief in spiritual souls has managed to keep its creditors at bay and thus prevented from total bankruptcy for so long. As a matter of fact,repparttar 122255 question is so sticky that modern philosophy had eventually also decided to give it a name. It is usually referred to timidly asrepparttar 122256 mind-body problem. I said ‘timidly’ because no philosopher then would want to step too explicitly onrepparttar 122257 soul’s toes.
