Alternative Medicine Goes Mainstream

A story at Yahoo mentions that alternative medicines are finding acceptance by doctors, insurers, and hospitals. I think it has slowly been moving that way for quite sometime. I remember a nurse learning Reiki that intended to use it at work. It does mention Reiki, crystal singing bowls (as a quartz bowl), herbal remedies, and more. It's definitely nice to see a merging of eastern and western medicine.

Testing remote viewing with Twitter

An experiment will have people tweet their remote viewing impressions based on a random spot chosen by the researchers.

This is an interesting idea, but I think there is too much of an unknown factor for whomever ends up participating in this, since it looks like they are allowing the general public to participate. How will they be able to distinguish those people that are actually working with remote viewing versus those who are randomly guessing or using some other method to determine the spot? And instead of just having people vote on the photograph that matches what they come up with, they should be gathering information on what the viewers come up with (such as drawings).

7 Ways to Better Recall Your Dreams

A Reader's Digest article titled 7 Ways to Better Recall Your Dreams has some good ideas, though I am not sure that all of them really help with recall.

Incubating an idea is better for guiding dream content than remembering the dream.

Connecting the dots, as stated in the article, is better for interpreting dreams, but I usually find that having hunches about a dream's meaning work better than trying to analyze them or looking them up in a dream dictionary.

And finally, changing the outcome is better suited for trying to have a lucid dream.

I have used the other tips for dream recall. I don't really write them down immediately after waking up, as I am better at holding the dream in my head (and sometimes I will remember it later in the day), but I think meditation has helped with dream recall.

Interesting experience with Holosync

I started Purification Level 4 the other week and I have experienced a couple of times, particularly last night, a sensation go through my body. I don't know how else to possibly describe it except to say it felt like a vibration and only lasted a second or so. It felt pretty strong last night, though I don't know what it is or why it is happening. But I'm okay with that.
