Parapsychology: Harnessing Your Etheric EnergyWritten by Jim D. Ray
Continued from page 1
There are a number of exercises designed for frontal lobe development, both basic and advanced, many of which are available on Internet or in related texts. While most of these activities can be performed anywhere with little preparation, a quiet, comfortable atmosphere will provide maximum result from each training session.
Frontal lobe exercises, such as meditation and memory retention activities, and even simplistic biochemical enhancements such as brainwave stimulators or incense will effectively stimulate synaptic pathways and neural regions associated with etheric energy interpretation.
What to Expect
Increased stimulation of frontal lobes will promote spontaneous etheric response. Contrary to preconceived opinion held by some individuals who have yet to achieve a strong working knowledge of energy, increased etheric control will compliment, rather than complicate, traditional thought processes and mental activities, both voluntarily and involuntarily.
A few results of increased etheric control include:
* Knowledge is retrieved with greater accuracy and speed, with less effort * Increased empathic ability, allowing for more precise interpretation of others’ emotions, intentions and honesty * Advanced sense of self (right and wrong, patience, will power) * Expanded problem-solving abilities, creativity, and cognitive comprehension skills
Recognizing emotional and physical responses associated with controlled etheric activity will allow for increased control of bio-etheric abilities, long-term. Interpretation of etheric information has a distinct, unique flavor as compared to internal dialogue or imagination. Differentiation between these independent streams of neurological feedback will improve as focus on etheric activity improves.
It is important to note that abilities and skills associated of increased etheric control are not limited to more commonly discussed processes such as precognitive event recognition, remote viewing, or even telepathy. Just as advances in modern technology resulted from an increased understanding of application of electricity, advanced etheric control will present new applications of control to existing functions.
As you begin a program for increasing bio-etheric control, write down your etheric-related experiences as they become evident to you. Your abilities and their accuracy will notably increase over time. Recording your progress will provide tangible benchmarks for charting progressive development.
Those with an existing or advanced comprehension of etheric energy will benefit most from direct employment of related abilities to maximize and increase identified potential. Recommended exercises for individuals with developed or expanded bio-etheric control include:
* Target- or beacon-based Controlled Remote Viewing (CRV) sessions * Precognitive forecasting activities, such as previewing playing card colors, suits, and numbers * Precognitive event recognition * Telepathy between parties with equal or greater skill
Both independently and as a collective, as we begin to explore and cultivate a complete understanding of bio-etheric energy, potential for application of this energy to civilization is virtually limitless. Like any skill, development of etheric energy control requires a disciplined, focused effort to achieve notable results. Accomplishment of a thorough familiarity with bio-etheric energy and its purposes may enrich mankind in ways yet to be considered.

A Bird's Eye View of THE ENCHANTED SELF and what it means to YOU! Written by Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein

The Third Gateway to Enchantment is Learning To Meet Your Needs and Negotiate for Yourself. The worst thing is to be so dependent on others and whims of others that we are not able to live out our dreams. We need education, skills, tools, and negotiating powers that will take us to fulfill our missions in life. So, don’t be afraid of education, don’t be afraid to go back for a degree at sixty, don’t be afraid to have a mentor, to look for advice, to find out how other people have succeeded in a particular field. For instance, I remember treating a young woman who had so much to offer but no path! Divorced and with two young sons she was forced back into parent's home and not happy about it. But once she started back to school and became a nurse all her doors opened for her. She had financial security, a home again for her boys and a future! It was tough but forth struggle. The fourth Gateway is experience of joy. This Gateway is so incredibly essential. It means replenishing yourself so that you are not running on empty. It also means not straining yourself, not accepting more assignments than you can really handle. When I have opened this Gateway I am able to bow out when I need to. Maybe I take that vacation I need or want or maybe I am just strong enough to say I will do this task later or you better find someone else to handle it and then I get a good night's sleep. By protecting my mind, body and spirit I not only set hontest guidelines with others, so I don't disappoint them, but I make room for joy. Replenishment leads to feeling good and joy fills us when we are full of life and vitality. Of course it is necessary to find ways to replenish ourselves that work. If you love to travel, look for ways to travel. If you love to be with your friends, get together, if you love to be with your grandchildren, then sit on floor and play games or plant a garden…whatever works for you. The Fifth Gateway is Gateway of Community. We all know how important it is to feel we belong, that others care about us and we care about others. But, what you may not realize is that belonging is a major way to offset depression. You see, more we are truly connected to others and feel a responsibility within a world beyond ourselves, less tendency is for us to get blue and withdrawn. Obviously, this is a very important Gateway. Finding right communities to connect are ongoing assignments for all of us-where we live, who are friends are, what church or synagogue we attend, what interest groups we identify with, etc. The Sixth Gateway is gateway of mentoring and being a mentor. Very often, we dismiss and minimize our own wisdom. We are wise, we have a tremendous amount we can offer others and there is always others to offer wisdom to ourselves. I love this little story that a friend told me. She said I am learning so much from my neighbor. I said, "Who is that?" She mentioned persons name. I had never heard her mention her name before even though we often chatted. My friend said, “Well, I don’t really know her, I just watch her.” I asked what do she meant. She explained, "She lives a few houses away and I watch her. I see how she greets her guests, how welcoming she is, how she always walks a guest out and says good-bye. I see her stand there until guest leaves. I see how radiant her smile is. Although she is twenty years younger than myself, she is a real mentor for me, I am learning from her all time." That is an example of how easy it is to be mentored. Even birds mentor us with their wonderful song. Start to look for mentors-you will find them all over. And don't forget that you are a mentor-perhaps even when you don't know it. Last but not least is Gateway of Positive Action or Good Deeds. So essential in all world and so essential for good.mental health. Research shows that more we help others, more generous in spirit we are, whether we give time, money, a smile, or a helping hand, our moods lift. Of course, if we offer to point of exhaustion then we defeat purpose and we will be on empty! The idea is to balance good mental health by using wise judgement calls of moderation and balance. These are Seven Gates; we go through them again and again in life. We never close a door on any of them, we are always back, we are always learning more, we are always having to reflect on our lives one more time or learn some new behaviors, make a new decision, recognize and acknowledge who we are and what we need and, of course, find new ways to bring pleasure and meaning into our lives. A PLAYDATE WITH ENCHANTMENT What I would like you to do now is to play with Seventh Gateway-that of Positive Action. Take a peice of paper write down 2 positive actions that you can do over next year. The first one is a positive action you can do for yourself. Make it something that will be good for yourself, such as to restore yourself or broaden your life. The second action is something that is good for world and of course will not harm yourself. You have a year to do these. Put them in your pocketbook, look at them once in awhile. Do you realize that just by actually doing these two actions you will: 1) bring more pleasure and joy to yourself and 2) improve world in some small way. Wow- two wonderful steps toward coming home to your ENCHANTED SELF!
