The Human Identity

The Human Identity

  What are you? Are you your brain? Are you your body? Are you a combination of the two? When most people use the word “I” they tend to mean it in reference a whole person, made up of many different pieces. “I” usually refers to the personality, the body and the brain. That is deceiving though, because one could still be called “I” even after losing most of the above and if we are made up of only our personality, body and brain, why is it we can observe our own emotions, our own thoughts? What is doing the observing? Seasoned meditators have learned to clear their mind and watch as their thoughts flow by as a psychotherapist would observe a patient. What is watching your thoughts?

Hyper-Suggestibility

Hyper-Suggestibility

Hyper-Suggestibility is a term used to describe a drowsy, child-like state where information is rapidly absorbed into the subconscious; bypassing the usual mental filters that information is put through. In this state of extreme receptivity, images and verbal suggestions are more likely to be accepted and acted upon. (ref: Budzynski, Ph.D.) It is common knowledge that children learn faster than adults. Researchers believe that one of the reasons for this is that young children spend most of their time with the dominant brainwave being Theta or Delta. But children don’t just learn words and arithmetic; they learn how to survive, indeed, how to think. They are, in effect, building up a subconscious that will support them later in life. For example, in the first years of childhood subconscious mechanisms need to be built to handle […]

Epigenetics has challenged the orthodox view of molecular information transference

Click here to read a great article published by mercola.comBy Dr. Mercola Extract – How much control do you really have over your own life in general, and your health in particular? These questions have puzzled many since the beginning of time. Now, the emerging science of epigenetics is offering some answers that put true control within your reach. According to some scientists, changing your health may be as “simple” as changing your thoughts and beliefs. “Contrary to what many people are being led to believe, a lot of emphasis placed on genes determining human behavior is nothing but theory and doctrine,” writes Konstantin Erikseni . “We are free to make decisions that impact our lives and those of others. … Our beliefs can change our biology. We have the power to heal ourselves, increase […]

Royal Society of Medicine says the NHS could save money and serve patients better by treating some serious conditions with hypnosis.

Hypnosis as an effective tool has been recognised by the RSM to be of use in many areas of treatment within the NHS. This is very welcome news as it reduces our reliance on pharmaceutical interventions (and the ensuing costs), but also gives patients a new understanding of how to take control of their well being in a more holistic way.  Dr Peter Naish, president of the RSM’s hypnosis section, and Dr Clare Gerada, chair of the Royal College of GPs, discuss why it is “now being used across the board.” http://news.bbc.co.uk/today/hi/today/newsid_9505000/9505458.stm
