It may sound like an incredibly bold statement, however, Dr. Bergman will discuss exactly how 97% of diseases can be prevented and cured. The belief system of the medical allopathic model of healthcare is beginning to shift to a vitalistic approach to healing that supports the body’s natural systems. It’s time to change the world and it begins now.
If you are anything like me, you may have thought to yourself over the years, Man, I really wish I would have learned another language in high school, or wondered, Why didn’t my mother put me in guitar lessons?Now I’ll never be able to learn how to play. You can’t teach an old dog new tricks, right?
This common misconception couldn’t be further from the truth, and older minds are still very much capable of learning and mastering new skills.
Emerging studies in psychology and neuroscience are now proving this very fact. They are also showing that continuing to learn and experience new things may actually help you to maintain good mental health and cognitive functioning as you age. It’s time to reconsider any previously held beliefs that we are simply incapable of learning new things after a certain age.
Where Did This Assumption Come From?
This pessimistic view of the ageing mind can perhaps be traced back to the ancient Greeks. In his treatise De Memoria et Reminiscentia, Aristotle compared our memories to a wax tablet; at birth the wax is hot and pliable and can take on whatever shape you give it, but as it begins to slowly cool down, it becomes tough and brittle, making it difficult to mould or imprint upon.
Enter the Exciting Realm of Neuroplasticity
Neuroplasticity refers to “the brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life. Neuroplasticity allows the neurons (nerve cells) in the brain to compensate for injury and disease and to adjust their activities in response to new situations or to changes in their environment.”
This essentially means that the brain is capable of regenerating new cells, a process once thought to be impossible. The concept of neuroplasticity is not new, but the ability to observe it in action is, thanks to functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) technology, which has allowed us to confirm the incredible morphing ability of the brain.
Even though your brain may become a bit more plastic as you age, certain practices can trigger neuroplasticity and regenerate brain cells.
How to Encourage Neuroplasticity
Change happens when you make the effort and are motivated to learn. This conscious effort causes the brain to release the neurochemicals necessary to facilitate change. In other words, you have to have interest in what you are doing; it has to be something that you truly want and desire for yourself. The harder you try and the more motivated and the more alert you are, the greater that change will be.
Every single instance of learning strengthens and stabilizes the brain. So, every time your brain strengthens a connection to the mastery of a skill, it will also weaken connections to neurons that weren’t being used at that moment. This helps to change or erase some irrelevant or interfering activity within the brain.
It is important to remember that neuroplasticity is a two-way street. While you can wasily create positive changes, you can also create negative ones just as easily. This is important to keep in mind every time negative self-talk comes up or you tell yourself that you can’t do something. You are just convincing yourself that you can’t and your brain takes note of that, which means you’ll have to reprogram that belief system first in order to accomplish whatever you thought was impossible for yourself.
Amazing Example of the Capacity of an Older Mind
In 1993, John Basinger decided to memorize the 12 books, 10,565 lines, and 60,000 words that comprise the second edition of John Milton’s Paradise Lost. Nine years later, he achieved his goal, performing the poem from memory over a three-day period.
We want life to make sense, and so we invent reasons why things happen. We pretend to know what we don’t know to avoid living with uncertainty.
But by not admitting to our lack of understanding we miss an opportunity to tap into a far greater intelligence. We walk right past an unlocked door to freedom – freedom from the limited sphere of thought.
Evaluating life with thought is like evaluating a Rodin with a tape measure. Life is not to be understood. It is to be experienced.
To evaluate life is to stand apart from it, to size it up as if it were some strange beast. Thought creates this gap, this illusory “me and it” environment. Thought manufactures a reasoner searching for reasons, one concept chasing after another.
But when thought is still, the gap disappears. We arethe life we had been pondering. We are one with it the way our skin is one with a gentle breeze.
Put away your measuring tools. Admit your ignorance. Say “I don’t know” and experience life without the need to understand it. Lay down your thoughts and with them will lie your uncertainties.
One with life, reasons become unnecessary because there is no one left to ask questions.
Everyone seems to be talking about the magic number 432 Hz. This tone is rumored to be a natural frequency of the universe.
The 432 Hz tone is also said to have cosmic healing powers, which attracts a massive audience to the sound of its music. If we tune our music down to a semitone under our norm A=440Hz, we are guaranteed access to the treasures hidden with the universe.
Here are a few facts about the 432 Hz tone:
1. Hz and Cycles per Second
Hertz is a term presented in 1930. Before then, it was called “Cycles per Second.” In 1834, “Cycles Per Second” was accurately measured when two instruments were created: the altered version of the Savart Wheel made by Felix Savart, and the Tonometer created by Johann Scheiber.
Furthermore, in the 16th century, the measurement of Seconds had only begun.
No one before could ever have tuned their musical instruments to measure 432 Hz because quite frankly, the scale just did not exist at this time. To my knowledge, there is no single valid piece of evidence that ancient flutes or bowls were possibly tuned to 432 Hz.
2. Pythagoras’ System
Pythagoras’ system of tuning is considered ratio based. Therefore, the system is not based on an absolute pitch but on relations to an arbitrary reference pitch. Pythagoras had no way of knowing what a second was, therefore, he couldn’t possibly know what Hz means. 432 is a ratio multiplied between C and A. C is considered 1 and A is 27/16. This is the same as 432/256. The count towards any base frequency and generally has no link to a specific Hz.
His system revolved around cycling perfect fifths. This, however, never got you to a complete circle unless one of the fifths is done away with. The Pythagorean scale must be tuned down slightly each octave to maintain consistency. The reason it was abandoned is that this makes the temperament unbalanced and sound off when playing music with advanced harmonies.
3. Giuseppe Verdi
Alexander John Ellis, a musicologist, has documented, measured, and searched tuning forks and ancient pipe organs. What he found was that 432 Hz was brought to attention in Italy in 1880 by Giuseppe Verdi. This was done not for spiritual reason but practical ones. Before tuning became standardized, the pitch of A ranged from 400 Hz to 460 Hz.
There are many indications that present cymatic imagery as proof for the 432 Hz theory. Cymatics is the scientific realm that remains unexplored. The images are made by bodies of water or metal which are tuned to show at different frequencies.
Just like guitar strings, bodies of water and metal plates are tuned to show at 440 Hz.
5. The diversity of music frequencies
The aesthetics of music is highly flexible. People who orchestrate music aren’t obligated to use the base frequencies of 440 Hz. Orchestras globally use varied pitches, according to the music they are playing.
In general, baroque music is played at 415 Hz. Early Romantic eras and classical music are based around 425 Hz and later ones were measured at 440 Hz and above.
A groundbreaking new study shows that magic mushrooms may actually be an effective treatment for people with depression. Researchers from Imperial College London found that patients taking psilocybin, the psychoactive compound that occurs naturally in magic mushrooms, showed reduced symptoms weeks after treatment following a “reset” of their brains.
In the clinical trials, patients with treatment-resistant depression received two doses of psilocybin — 10 mg followed by 25 mg, one-week apart — while researchers focused on changes in brain function before and after treatment with the drug. The findings showed that the treatment produced “rapid and sustained antidepressant effects.”
Brain scans show a reset of brain connectivity and blood flow.
Comparisons of images of patients’ brains before and after treatment with psilocybin showed reduced blood flow in areas of the brain responsible for processing emotional responses like stress and fear. Researchers found increased stability in another brain network that has been previously linked to psilocybin’s immediate effects, as well as to depression itself.
The small study of 19 people was led by Head of Psychedelic Research at Imperial College London Dr. Robin Carhart-Harris, who said:
“We have shown for the first time clear changes in brain activity in depressed people treated with psilocybin after failing to respond to conventional treatments.
“Several of our patients described feeling ‘reset’ after the treatment and often used computer analogies. For example, one said he felt like his brain had been ‘defragged’ like a computer hard drive, and another said he felt ‘rebooted.’
“Psilocybin may be giving these individuals the temporary ‘kick start’ they need to break out of their depressive states and these imaging results do tentatively support a ‘reset’ analogy. Similar brain effects to these have been seen with electroconvulsive therapy.”
In addition, the trials revealed that patients scoring highest on “peak” or “mystical” experience showed a more significant change. This is consistent with findings from previous studies that have shown that such experiences can lead to long-term changes in the behaviors, attitudes, and values of patients treated with psilocybin.
“In 1915, 100 years ago this month, Sigmund Freud published a paper in which he described what he had discovered in his psychoanalytic patients: that there is an aspect of the human psyche of which individuals are typically profoundly unaware, namely the unconscious. His explorations set in motion a broad and fascinating path of investigation that gripped other key 20th century figures such as Carl Jung, and with which we are still engaged today. In this Science Set Free podcast, Rupert Sheldrake and Mark Vernon discuss this dynamic aspect of human life and how the unconscious relates to ideas from the soul to morphic fields.”
It’s clear the mainstream of humanity is becoming increasingly dissatisfied, and dis-eased as the seeming relentless struggle to control life and the planet’s dwindling resources rolls on. Fortunately, a growing group of people are turning away from this mechanised madness by finding love, peace and fulfilment within. It’s all about recgonising oneself as part of the greater whole and flowing with that, inside yourself. Understanding how the microcosym of your life fits within the greater macrocosym leads to a sublime way of being. You find the mystical ‘nirvana’, inside yourself. Here’s how…
Infinite Creative Potential Exists Inside You
I put it to you, that the universe exploded into being and unleashed flows of consciousness, like ripples on a pond (which people call the ‘big-bang). It was done without intention – or else who had the intention and where did the ‘creator’ come from? It just happened. And that creative potential still exists inside of you. It is who you are.
When you let go of the need to control life, the release steadily unwinds you, taking you on a Journey of Enlightenment where ultimately you become the One, inside of yourself; you lose attachment to identity, it feels like no one is here. The divine paradox is, that in touching this void of nothingness, you simultaneously realise the infinite potential of the One – the unlimited creative possibility that caused the bigbang. Your soul then writes a story – a flow – which is uniquely yours.
The Journey of Enlightenment
This ‘Enlightenment’ is not the end of the story. It is only the beginning of the authentic one. You then begin to recognise sense of purpose, unveiled as divine service to the whole.
It is only when you let go the life you thought you were creating, the real work and the real service comes gloriously into view.
So how do you live that here and now? How do unfold your real life-story? It helps to recognise the bigger universal flow, how it’s moving, and to become an active part in that.
You are a Divine Paradox
In this big explosion of consciousness – the bigbang – you have essentially two contrasting flows creating relativity: one outwards forming the multiplicity of separation consciousness, and the other inwards, reconnecting with the source – like the undertow on a pond. These relativistic flows, create the miraculous awareness of life experience. However, in many places, unity consciousness gets stuck within the separation consciousness creating eddy currents. It’s where the universe becomes convoluted and distorted. The Law of Attraction draws streams of Unity Consciousness – as souls – into these convolutions.
You are a divine paradox: the infinite potential of the One, and at the same time, a streaming experience of the One – a unique soul.
The Universal Torus
Science and spirituality are now beginning to converge on a working model of the universe called “The Torus”. Essentially the bigbang is now drawing into a form of interrelating flows of consciousness – a good depiction of which is contained in the video below. Consider the blue light as Unity Consciousness and the golden as Separation Consciousness.
One ways to appreciate the Torus in it’s outer form, would be as a continually vibrating and pulsing apple – a “Big Apple”! This Torus possesses the Void of the One – infinite potential running down through the core. Rotating torsional force flows into the Void.
