Some people (including me) study the power of the mind. You might have been told we humans only use 10% of our mind – so what does the rest of it do? When I wrote the book “Directed Dreaming, Success From the Subconscious,” I had just figured out how to use my mind while I was asleep to solve problems and give me answers to things I couldn’t figure out when I was awake. I still use these methods on a daily basis.
Actually, the truth is that the 10% mind thing is a big MYTH! And in fact, Neurologist Barry Gordon at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore says it’s so wrong it’s laughable! We probably are only using the 10% when we are just resting and thinking,”
According to Gordon:
“It turns out though, that we use virtually every part of the brain, and that [most of] the brain is active almost all the time,” Gordon adds. “Let’s put it this way: the brain represents three percent of the body’s weight and uses 20 percent of the body’s energy.”
So there you have it!
Now, there are tricks people can play on the mind, like magicians do when they perform their optical illusions. Magicians are very entertaining to watch as they perform magic tricks that are so real they’re unbelievable. But these are just tricks and sleight of hand movements and really have nothing to do with getting INTO your mind.
Then there are those who are able to access their minds in a subconscious or conscious way to control their destiny. This is the process that is more up my alley! Some people think that only certain people have the ability to access minds and they have labeled this type of thing “magick.”
But this type of magick is basically “the science and art of using the subconscious mind to make powerful changes in the material world. In more specific terms, magick is using conscious stimulation (i.e. rituals, symbols, gestures, chanting, lighting, incense, etc.) to harness latent powers within the subconscious mind (i.e. gods, genii, intelligences, angels, daemons, etc.) to make changes in our bodies, our minds, and the world around us.”
I realize that’s quite a mouthful and I try not to do that to you, but basically, because it uses objects and smells for conscious stimulation many people are afraid to even think about this type of awareness. Not to mention the fact that it has been given a bad rap by witches! There are good witches too you know. But I digress and I think that now I may be rambling.
