The Smoke Alarm Communicates

A few nights ago I was lying in bed reading when one of my smoke alarms beeped three times. Since it was about 11pm, I was only resigned instead of feeling aggravated – normally my smoke alarm batteries go bad between 2am and 4am, when it’s least convenient and most confusing. I hauled my buttContinue reading “The Smoke Alarm Communicates”

Imagination

During a Monroe Institute workshop that I attended earlier this year, the facilitator suggested that if we felt as if we weren’t getting anything during the meditations (visual images, messages, communication, whatever), that we prime the pump by imagining something, then following it. She paused for a moment, looking around the room with a smallContinue reading “Imagination”

New Math

I grew up in the Presbyterian church, in a family of engineers. Here’s what some of the prevailing assumptions were: There’s only one way to do things: the Right Way. The Right Way is hard work. You get what you earn. There’s no such thing as a free lunch. Money doesn’t grow on trees. Life is hard.Continue reading “New Math”

Declining to Participate in Fear-Based Economics

The current economic volatility is amusing if one is able to step aside into a place of neutrality. The markets tanked yesterday because of … an idea. No physical reality, present or past, actually took place. An idea was simply presented: the United States is now AA instead of AAA. In lieu of this idea,Continue reading “Declining to Participate in Fear-Based Economics”

Being Invisible, Space-Time Cloaks, & Consciousness

Physicists know how to make things invisible. When I was about five or six years old, my mom, dad, brother, sister and I played hide and seek at my grandmother’s house in a small town in South Dakota. During one round (the last round!), I hid under my grandmother’s bed, against the wall near theContinue reading “Being Invisible, Space-Time Cloaks, & Consciousness”

PSI Activities for Fun: Affirmations

Back in the dark ages of high school, we were a tight group of friends that met and hung out at church. Although that might imply a pious group, we spent as much time pushing boundaries as we did praying. We played poker in the church office before services (of course for money – what wouldContinue reading “PSI Activities for Fun: Affirmations”

Miracles

Two weeks ago I had a vivid reminder of how easy life can be. Months ago I began digging foundations for two culvert rainwater collection tanks. I’ll skip the whining about trying to dig in dirt as hard as concrete … I finally finished the digging, then had to figure out pvc pipe plumbing. That tookContinue reading “Miracles”

Remote Viewing for Flexibility

  A few weeks ago I got back to remote viewing (RV) targets generated at http://www.rvtargets.com/. The first few times that I tried remote viewing (a few years ago), I had spectacular results. This is no longer the case. My hit rate has plummeted. For those of you who aren’t familiar with RV, I wouldContinue reading “Remote Viewing for Flexibility”
