The Keys To Power - Where Science and Religion Meet by Alan Tutt

The human species is constantly striving for more. More food, more friends, more love, more money, more sex, more power to get all good things. You and I are not unique in this regard. We want to have more ofrepparttar things which please us.

In our striving for more, mankind has created various systems of knowledge (sciences) which help us to attainrepparttar 122202 most we possibly can. We haverepparttar 122203 sciences of mathematics, chemistry, physics, aerodynamics, psychology, astronomy, biology, zoology, economics, and many more. These sciences are well respected, and for good reason. They help us attain more than we could without them.

But how well respected were these sciences before they were called a science? Before there was chemistry, it was called alchemy and it's practitioners were ridiculed. Before mathematics was numerology (which still exists today). How serious do we take those who practice this 'art'. And before astronomy was astrology.

What difference is there betweenrepparttar 122204 sciences of today and their predecessors of yesterday? Only one thing differentiates them. One has been proven to work andrepparttar 122205 other hasn't. Many people today ask "do you believe in astrology?" suggesting that there has not been enough proof to substantiate its validity as a science. No-one asks "do you believe in astronomy?", do they?

Today, we have new sciences being born. The field of psychology has learned much from it's predecessor, parapsychology, and still does. New technologies in psychology are being tested and added torepparttar 122206 science. NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) is one such technology, and even hypnosis was not identified as a distinct technology until this last century. Psychology is a science that is still fairly young, with a extensive list of scientific laws yet to be discovered.

In fact, scientists realize that they know less aboutrepparttar 122207 human mind than they do aboutrepparttar 122208 galactic systems ofrepparttar 122209 Universe! What isrepparttar 122210 mind actually capable of? This is one question that remains unanswered, because new discoveries ofrepparttar 122211 mind's capabilities are constantly being made. How doesrepparttar 122212 mind work? Another unanswered question.

Coming from a different direction, religion has been another area which promises to give us more ofrepparttar 122213 things we want. We are taught in many religions that if we are good, and have faith that God will answer our prayers, then we will receiverepparttar 122214 thing asked for.

But each religion specifies a different set of criteria as to what it means to be 'good'. In some religions we must avoid eating certain types of food, or at least on certain days. In other religions we must acknowledgerepparttar 122215 creator in every action we perform or we have failed. In still other religions we must perform specific rituals and ceremonies, speak predetermined prayers, and live our lives according torepparttar 122216 'revealed wisdom' ofrepparttar 122217 holy leaders. And in some religions, we are allowed to do anything we want, as long as it doesn't hurt another human being.

Are You Psychic

Are You Psychic? by Alan Tutt

There have been many famous psychics. Edgar Cayce is probablyrepparttar most famous, but there were others. There was a Dr. David Hoy who was born in Evanston, Indiana around 1930. One ofrepparttar 122201 main differences between Cayce and Dr. Hoy was that Cayce went into a trance to access his psychic abilities, and Dr. Hoy had his abilities readily available at all times. These two psychics show us that psychic abilities can be extremely accurate and reliable, and that each person has a unique method of accessing them.

Here'srepparttar 122202 first question, why does this matter? What benefit can we gain from this information? A lot of people feel that anything psychic is too "out there" to be of any real use, thatrepparttar 122203 whole subject is one for those who are "a little off". But is it? Don't we all trust our "gut instinct" about certain matters? When we meet someone forrepparttar 122204 first time, don't we trust our "first impression"? What is a first impression, anyways? Science tells us thatrepparttar 122205 first impression isrepparttar 122206 subconscious reaction to a wide variety of subtle clues including a person's body posture, tone of voice, facial expressions, fluidity of motion, and factors such as how they wear their clothes.

What if there are other clues, even subtler? Have you ever met someone who seemed completely confident, well dressed, and in complete control ofrepparttar 122207 situation, yet had an uneasy feeling about him/her? Where did that feeling come from? And what aboutrepparttar 122208 feelings we get about things and places? Yes, it could be simply a resemblance to something in memory, which brings up forgotten feelings associated with whatever we are remembering onrepparttar 122209 subconscious level.

But here'srepparttar 122210 catch. The ability to know things totally unavailable to physical sense has been proven, scientifically. Whether we want to believe in psychic abilities or not, they have been proven to be real. Sorepparttar 122211 question comes back to what benefit can we get from this information?

In our information age (some are saying that we've pastrepparttar 122212 information age and enteredrepparttar 122213 communication age) we generally agree that more information gives us more choices, more power in a situation. If you know thatrepparttar 122214 confident person in front of you who's offering you a fabulous high-paying job will fail inrepparttar 122215 next year, then you can save yourselfrepparttar 122216 trouble and say no torepparttar 122217 job offer. If you know thatrepparttar 122218 business opportunity in your email inbox will make millions inrepparttar 122219 next several months, then you can jump on it before it's too late.
