6 Ways the Ego Disguises Resistance
The tough reality down here on Planet Blue is that what we think we want and getting to it can get sabotaged at Step 0 by our own resistances. Here are six of them and their cures.
1. Disempowering, low-level thinking. Thoughts like, I don't know how, I'm not ready yet, this is too much, this is too hard, who am I to do this?? Another trend way to describe this? "Imposter Syndrome". Imposter syndrome is a series of thoughts that have become a construct--I don't know enough, I'm a fraud, I'm not ready, they're gonna find out. The brutally simple truth is that imposter syndrome is only real if you make it real by your choice.
2. Confusion/Lack of Clarity. If you allow yourself to be clear, then you know how to move forward. So your brain is like, NOPE! You're confused! You don't have clarity. You don't know how. You don't understand enough to take action! Find a way to be "productive" by doing non-essential tasks, something fun, or call a friend. Clarity will return.
3. Overwhelm. Similar to confusion, but if you're overwhelmed you won't move forward. Visualize overwhelm like a net that falls over you and drags you to the floor. Step back and check any "people-pleasing" strategies you've got going. If you're committed to everyone else, you can feel very justified in your belief that you're too overwhelmed to do what you need to do. Re-evaluate responsibilities and prioritize them along the lines of what feels right and good.
4. Lack of motivation. I'm bored. I don't feel like doing this. I'm not interested. This form of resistance is cute because it'll make you think thoughts like, I'm too advanced/sophisticated for this strategy. Or, it probably won't work so I won't bother trying it. Recognize that if you're losing interest in something that brings you closer to the beautiful vision you're excited about, then it's resistance. Simply drop the boring thing and find something to do that keeps you excited.
5. Distraction or shiny object syndrome. Resistance will say, go change the laundry before you start on that big project. Or, read that article first. So you bang out tasks that are so familiar you could do them in your sleep, you wash the dishes, check your emails, take the dog for a walk. What's so sneaky about this is, it's not like you're binge-watching Netflix. You're doing practical tasks and chores! But ask yourself: are they the most valuable use of your time and energy right now?
6. Blank brain. I don't know what to do/say/think/write. Also known as "writer's block,". Blank brain is so widely accepted, you say you have writer's block and people nod sympathetically. But you're a creative, passionate, experienced person. How could you ever truly have a blank brain? Nope, this is resistance tricking you. If you breathe deeply, put your hand on your heart, let go of judgment, and give yourself patience, grace and playfulness, your ideas will rush towards you like a river.
QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: Stress can exacerbate resistance. Use Clean Sweep by misting yourself around head and heart, and watch the negative and resistant energies evaporate.
Raising Other People's Energy Vibrations
For evidence that the heartfelt intentions of one individual can raise the heart vibration of others, the HeartMath Institute cites studies it has conducted. You may be familiar with the study in which a dog's incoherent heart rhythms became coherently aligned with a boy's heart rhythms as he radiated intentional love and care to his dog.
Science tells us that human beings and all creatures radiate an electromagnetic field produced by the heartbeat. Our feelings broadcast like radio waves through this field. When you are in the presence of a group of friends, family or others, everyone's thoughts, feelings and attitudes are intermingling in your immediate area--which HeartMath calls the field environment.
In a study with 40 participants, HeartMath explored the effects of being in a coherent field environment. The participants were divided into 10 groups of four people who were seated around a table. They were all connected to equipment that simultaneously measured their level of heart rhythm coherence. Three of the participants had been previously trained in the "Heart Coherence" technique and were instructed to get into a coherent state at random times unknown by the fourth untrained person. Overall, as the coherent vibration of the three HeartMath-trained participants increased, the untrained person's coherence level also measurably increased from being in that more coherent field environment.
When poised in our higher vibration, we experience many benefits. Decisions and solutions flow more easily due to increased access to our heart's intuitive wisdom; our discernment becomes more inclusive and our choices become clearer and more effective; it gets much easier to deflect frustration, anxiety, impatience and other chronic stress producers that strain our critical thinking and reasoning.
Most all of us feel more self-secure when in our higher vibrational composure, yet it can be harder to maintain in the midst of challenges and ramped up stress. We can learn to lift our vibration to meet challenges by adding heart qualities of conscious care, kindness, gratitude or compassion in our interactions. As these qualities of love move through our system, it lifts our attitudes automatically for the highest way to deal with the situation at hand.
QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: The Schumann Resonance Crystal amplifies the heart-centered connection we all have to the Earth, bringing increased well-being, intelligence and harmony, that palpably radiates out to others.
Science Defines Higher Conscious States
New research has discovered verifiable evidence of a higher level of consciousness. Researchers used brain imaging equipment to analyze the small magnetic fields created in the brain and discovered that, across three psychedelic substances, one measure of conscious level--neural signal diversity--was consistently greater. Neural signal diversity is a measure of the complexity of brain activity — in persons under the influence of psychedelic substances as compared to when they were awake. The variety of brain impulses gives a mathematical indicator of awareness degree. People who are awake, for example, have more diversified brain activity than those who are asleep, according to this measure.
However, this is the first study to show that brain-signal diversity is more than baseline, that is, greater than in someone who is merely "awake and aware". Previous research has focused on decreased states of awareness, such as sleep, anesthesia, or the so-called vegetative state. More research utilizing complex and diverse models is required, according to the researchers, who are cautiously hopeful. Professor Anil Seth, Co-Director of the University of Sussex's Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science, stated:
This discovery demonstrates that the brain on psychedelics functions quite differently than usual. As evaluated by "global signal diversity," the electrical activity of the brain during the psychedelic experience is less predictable and less "integrated" than during regular conscious wakefulness. Since this measure has already shown its value as a measure of "conscious level", we can say that the psychedelic state appears as a higher "level" of consciousness than normal, but only with respect to this specific mathematical measure.For the study, Michael Schartner, Adam Barrett, and Professor Seth of the Sackler Centre reanalyzed data that had previously been collected by Imperial College London and the University of Cardiff in which healthy volunteers were given one of three drugs known to induce a psychedelic state: psilocybin, ketamine, and LSD.
Using brain imaging equipment, scientists examined the small magnetic fields created in the brain and discovered that, across all three medicines, this measure of conscious level (neural signal diversity) was consistently greater. The researchers emphasize that this does not imply that the psychedelic state is a "better" or "more desirable" state of consciousness; rather, it demonstrates that the psychedelic brain state is distinct and can be related to other global changes in conscious level (e.g., sleep, anesthesia) by using a simple mathematical measure of signal diversity.
"That identical improvement in signal diversity was discovered for all three medications, despite their rather distinct pharmacology, are both quite remarkable and also encouraging that the results are robust and reproducible," said Dr. Muthukumaraswamy, who was involved in all three original research.

Health & Healing Hack of the Week
Doc Childre, founder of the Hearth Math Institute, has done extensive research on the power of the heart to regulate the brain and the body. The heart emits an electromagnetic field many times more powerful than the brain's. Research has also shown that the brain responds to commands from the heart as its top priority, basically meaning that the heart runs things when it comes to the body. The Heart Math Institute came up with the concept of "Heart Coherence", meaning the heart is "coherent" or in step with the highest aspirations of the mind, and is creating a coherent, or single, vibration that can then be transmitted throughout the brain and body. You can easily create a state of coherence in about 60 seconds by releasing stress and stopping draining emotions such as frustration, irritation, anxiety and anger. When you are in a coherent state, your thoughts and emotions are balanced and you experience ease and inner harmony. (See "Quick Coherence Technique"). The first part of this exercise is moving the attention down from the head to the heart. This alone creates a certain degree of coherence because you are centering yourself where the main commands to the brain are coming from, thus you are more able to use the body's intelligence. -- From 25 No Cost Health & Healing Hacks by Boyd Martin)

AMAZING PRODUCT ALERT: Biophotons
The Biophotons mandala works on the energetic level to intensify and fortify the body's natural biophotonic field. In 1974, Fritz-Albert Popp discovered that the DNA of all living systems naturally absorb and emit photons (i.e., light). He also discovered that the intensity of this biophotonic field correlated with the health of the subject. In other words, healthy subjects had strong biophotonic fields, while subjects dealing with illness tended to have weak biophotonic fields. He found a similar correlation with agriculture. Food grown naturally in the wild had the strongest biophotonic field. Organically grown food was next in line for the strongest biophotonic field. And last, in terms of biophotonic strength, was commercially grown food. Biophotons have also been shown to be emitted from stimulated acupuncture points. This biophoton therapy signature is sourced directly from the quantum field and enhances the biophotonic field by reinforcing and intensifying it so that it does not dissipate and "leak" as much as it normally would.
