Part Two of Spiraling Chaos and The Quantum Field

Here are a few quotes to start this week’s blog:

The only constant in this world is change;

When a door closes, somewhere a window opens; and finally,

When the student is ready, the teacher appears.

To continue the vein of last week’s blog, the spiraling chaos we are experiencing here in the US is our teacher.  Let me explain.

Last week I wrote about how the spiraling chaos is a reflection of the out-of-balance nature of our government and our society:  the self-serving Legislative and Executive branches of government.  I also pointed to racial tensions in our country (and around the world) and the protests and counter-protests that have taken place as a result.  I closed the blog by talking about how searching for truth can help with clarity and self-confidence as one discerns how best to navigate these chaotic times.

The Next Step.  Searching for Truth is just the first step.  The next step that will bring even more confidence and add momentum to your current journey is recognizing that this massive change we are experiencing – this chaos – is a very positive sign.

Which student learns more when building a birdhouse:  the one who is given a clear design with step-by-step instructions and pre-cut pieces of wood; or the student who is given is given one large piece of wood and a pencil and paper with which to create a design?  The latter, of course.

Think back on your own life.  Did you experience great success when you had a cushy job that required very little of you?  Or did you achieve success after facing and overcoming challenges?

Yes, the Field achieves maximum expansion when there is balance, but it is also aware that great growth (expansion) can occur when one is challenged.  When there is significant change in our lives.  Change is simply the next step in your path to greater expansion and greater success.

Our Collective Assignment.  I could have added “Change is opportunity,” to the list of quotes above, but besides being an overused cliché, the reality is a more concrete concept.  When we intentionally align our efforts with the goals of the Field – that is, when we focus on expansion and balance – the Field recognizes that we are ready for greater growth, and it will collaborate to present high-growth situations.  In other words, it presents us with change.  This could be a positive change, or it could be a challenge or an obstacle – likely something that will help us develop a skill that will ultimately be useful in getting to that next level of success.

The spiraling chaos we are experiencing is indeed a sign that things are way out of balance, but it is also a sign that we are ready to face that chaos.  That we are ready to learn, to take the next step, and to grow into a better and stronger country.  We simply need to recognize the collective assignment that has been placed before us, then we can each take our own small steps to create a new solution.  When the student is ready, the teacher appears.

Wishing you an invigorating journey as you take your next steps!

Spiraling Chaos and The Quantum Field (part 1 of 2)

© Satori13 – Dreamstime.com

Here in the United States, our current reality seems bent on spiraling into more and more chaos.  Whether it’s attacks on our voting system, the media bullying the president to the exclusion of almost everything else, or leaders actively working to undermine the rule of law upon which our nation is based, ever increasing chaos seems to be our path at the moment.

 

How do we live through such times?  And what role is the Field playing in all this?  (the Field defined) Both questions are important, but today I’ll just touch on the latter and dive deep into the former.

The Field’s core dynamics are Expansion and Balance.  [Click here for more on expansion and balance.]  Maximum expansion occurs when there is an ideal state of balance.  When our society and our government/politics are in a healthy state of balance, we have a stable foundation as we strive for maximum growth, maximum expansion.  With COVID-19, an economy that has stumbled to just a crawl, and a political and media system focused more on beating each other up rather than working for the good of the country, there is clearly not much expansion going on right now.

Out of Balance.  Balance is the driving force in today’s reality.  More to the point, out of balance conditions are driving the spiraling chaos.  Our government is not serving the people.  The House, the Senate, and the Presidency are more concerned with self-promotion and self-preservation rather than helping the people they represent.  As a result, our three branches of government have strayed from their original “checks and balances” nature:  The Congress (House and Senate) have over decades ceded their leadership to the Executive branch; the Judicial branch has become politicized and is increasingly motivated by political parties rather than a passion for proper application of the law; and the Executive branch has far more power than was originally designed by our country’s founders.

The Black Lives Matter movement, the videos of police brutality, and the protests and counter-protests are all stark indicators of just how out of balance our current society is.

So where do we start?  In what ways can we use the Field to help us navigate a country in such chaos?  In the NBA Finals this week, coaches will design plays that favor the strengths of their players, as well as draw up defensive schemes that mitigate their weaknesses.  To be effective in making such decisions, coaches must rely on the facts.  Who is shooting well right now?  Who is moving a little slower today?  We must do the same.  In order to succeed in the “NBA Finals” of life, we must face harsh truth.

We must be brutally honest with ourselves about the opinions we hold, in order to navigate through this time to a greater state of balance.  Opinions and beliefs based on hearsay or out-of-context quotes is like a house without a foundation:  they will not stand the test of time.

If you’re uncertain about the truth of a particular issue, google both sides of the story.  Its SOOO easy today via the internet.  Try it.  Don’t have the time?  Then harness the harsh light of truth by asking yourself this question:  Which side of the issue will lead to greater balance as a country and to higher levels of success (expansion) for as many people as possible?

Truth.  Shining the harsh light of truth on your opinions and beliefs will not only lead to greater confidence in who you are, it will also reveal the path through this chaotic time in our country.

Remember, the Field expands when you expand.  Thus, it will support you in your desire to find balance, to search for the truth, to grow and expand, and to be successful.  And “you” means everyone.  Why?  Because if everyone achieves maximum expansion, then the Field does too.

Wishing you growth and clarity as you discern the Truth.

Puzzles, Society and Racism

Happy Thursday!!  This latest blog is one of my longer ones, so grab a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy.

I am a fan of Disney animation films, of challenging puzzles, and I‘ve been a long-time fan of Thomas Kinkade paintings.  During the pandemic, I have had the great fortune of being able to pass the time working on a collection of puzzles based on paintings by Kinkade. To be more specific, these four paintings are based on beautiful scenes from the Disney films The Lion KingPeter PanThe Jungle Book, and – my favorite puzzle – The Princess and the Frog.

Now these are 500-piece puzzles, so they don’t take long to do, and yet they’re still a good challenge for any puzzle fan.  These aren’t your average puzzles:  these are high quality products.

The pieces are very unique – not like some of the cheap puzzles you buy with only four different puzzle shapes that repeat over and over.  These Disney puzzle pieces are not only unique, but they also fit together really well.  Not so snug that you can’t fit them together, but not so loose that they slip apart from each other.  You can easily pick up a completed puzzle and move it to another table without worrying about it falling apart.

In short, these puzzles are top quality puzzles.

So, when it comes time to put the puzzle away – when it’s time to separate all those little pieces – that part is not as easy as one might think.  You have to start undoing the puzzle by bending over a small section of one corner, gently coaxing it away from the rest of the puzzle, and then breaking down this one small section carefully between your fingers.  Then you can move on and break away the next small section of puzzle, gently pulling the pieces apart.

It takes time.  You actually have to pay attention to what you’re doing!  Your awareness has to be high because if you try to rush or force the pieces apart, you could damage one or even multiple pieces.

A few weeks ago, as I was breaking down my favorite puzzle, it dawned on me that that delicate and deliberate process just might be what our society is going through right now.

Our society works.  It not only works, but it is one of the best societies in the world.  I understand that that is a pretty brash statement, but I’ve lived in 4 different countries overseas:  three were benevolent dictatorships (Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the Kingdom of Jordan), and one was the European democracy of Switzerland.

Based my life experiences in the Middle East and in Switzerland, I think I understand one of the main reasons why many want to immigrate here:  The corner stone of our society is based on freedom.  The freedom of expression and the ability to fully be who we want to be, these are the liberties of our society that make the United States so attractive.  In short, our society works really well…like the pieces of a high-quality puzzle.

Racism.  What about racism?  Where does racism show up in this picture, in this highly desirable society?  Aside from recent months, our society has largely hushed racism, swept it under the rug, and ignored it.  If our society is like a well-made puzzle, then racism is like the fine cardboard dust in between the pieces.  Over these last months, all that fine dust has surfaced and turned into a silky mud, marring what we had thought was a beautiful, well-made puzzle.  Marring what we thought was a desirable society.  Not a comfortable feeling, but a truth that can’t be denied.

Having said that, I am encouraged.  This time the unrest and the protests are not dying down.  People are uncomfortable.  They don’t like what they are seeing and they want it to change.  Not a change to soothe our disrupted lives back to “normalcy”.  No, people want change that is for good…and for the good of all.

Maybe we have to go through the pain of pulling apart pieces of our society, but such an effort will help to uncover and heal this deep scar on our nation’s soul.

The Quantum Field Angle.  Where concepts from my book Leverage the Field for Success are concerned, I have two things to say.  First, oppression, suppression, and repression are at cross purposes with the #1 priority of the Field, expansion.  Remember, when you expand, the Field expands.  And “you” means every person, every animal, every thing on the planet.  The Field’s ideal would be for all of us to help each other grow and expand, reaching the full potential of our lives here on Earth.  And that means Black Lives, too.

The second thing I’d say – in Field-verbiage – is that when we find ourselves presented with such situations from the Field, we know that even in the midst of despair, there is reason for great hope.  Why?  Because to pull ourselves through such challenge and conflict takes great growth and expansion.  We reach a better state of balance.  How will we do it?  How long will it take?  I don’t know.  What I do know is that as long as we keep pulling the pieces apart and asking questions about the mud that bubbles to the surface, eventually we will create a puzzle that far exceeds the beauty of our current society.

May we each have the heart, the patience, and the persistence to raise our awareness as we delicately pull the pieces apart, and creativity and compassionately discern how best to move forward.  Black Lives – and All Lives – will flourish as a result.

A Confession Regarding “News”

I have a few confessions and updates for you.  Well, more than a few, but I’ll start with this first one:  I’m not watching the news.  I’m not reading the news.  I’m not even watching YouTube clips of comedians making fun of the news.  *big sigh*  Sorry, everyone, but the situation has become so bad that it just disgusts me.  I mean it.  It literally makes my stomach feel upset.  Not the ulcer kind of upset, more like motion-sickness nausea.  Yuck.

Why?  President Trump does what he does – spouts hyperbole and self-contradictions – and the media then does what it does:  pounces relentlessly on his every misstep.  Catching Trump making a mistake is kind of like shooting fish in a barrel…it’s just not that fair.  And if you’re a half-decent fisherman, it’s a waste of your time and talent.

But we all know why the media plays the game:  ratings.  People may argue that the media is being a good watchdog, keeping Trump in check.  But if they really wanted to keep him in check, then they would all-but-ignore his mistakes and spend their airtime on the medical experts.  But medical experts are scientists, and you don’t find many scientists with their own talk shows (Neil deGrasse Tyson being a notable exception).  They aren’t good for ratings.

Well, my body has finally tired with all the hateful attacks and counter-attacks.  Roughly three-to-four weeks ago, my body made it quite clear:  You watch this vitriolic negativity, and you will be sick.

Another word for “sick” is “disease”, and I am choosing to focus on the second half of that word:  Ease.  I am choosing to spend my time looking for a job I’ll enjoy (yes, I’ve decided to re-join the corporate workforce…more details in the next blog), and I’m focusing on other activities that feel good and productive to me.  That might mean working on a project in the yard, or taking a 30-minute walk in the nearby park, or simply taking extra time sharing a coffee with Monique as we watch the sunrise from our back porch.

If we are indeed all connected via this thing called “the quantum energy field”, then in which mode am I better serving that Field:  as an upset person who is aggravated and depressed by the daily “news”, as a person focused on the positives in my future and who feels good going about their daily activities?  I’m going with the latter.  First, it just feels better, and second, the Field is all about Expansion.  If I want the Field – with its connection to all resources on the planet – to support me in my job search and in my life, then I would want to choose the path that is expansive, that is growth-filled, that is about lifting up…not tearing down.  Not the path that contracts one’s gut into knots, but the path that expands one’s chest with joy.

I suppose I’m not being completely honest.  I have taken to watching SGN lately.  They give some great examples of being creatively wonderful during these trying times.  This is my favorite episode so far:  SGN  (if pressed for time, go to mark 8:27 in the video).  Wishing you joy and courage on your path!!

Gratitude as a Tool in 2020

Many of us focused our gratitude on “fun highlights” as we closed out 2019. But if we articulate and are grateful for our professional accomplishments — including career obstacles that we faced and overcame — we can boost our confidence as we move into 2020.  Further, gratitude can be a powerful tool to gauge whether or not you are in sync with the Field, helping you maximize your success potential in 2020.

How?  See the Toolbox below excerpted from my book, Leverage the Field for Success.


Toolbox: Success Milestones and Gratitude

Would you like one sure fire sign that you are in sync with the Field? Raise your awareness of success milestones, as well as your acknowledgement of those milestones. Doing this will naturally produce a feeling of gratitude, and when you have that feeling of gratitude, that is a sure sign that you are in sync with the Field. Think of the experience of gratitude as a juncture of three currents in the Field: your own desires, the desires of others who wanted the result that your success produced, and the desires of the Field. In tactical terms, your success milestone produced a result that was both the desire of others who needed the result to aid in their own path to success, and a result that addressed the primary goal of the Field itself:  expansion.

Studies suggest that the experience of gratitude acts as a kind of “momentum boost” or “success accelerator” in the Field. Many articles and books expound on the power of gratitude on a personal level. Here, however, we will touch on just a few key impacts that are relevant to the corporate work environment (as cited in a 2014 Forbes article(14)):

Improves physical and psychological health
A 2012 study showed that grateful people experience fewer aches and pains, were more likely to make regular check-ups with their doctors, and were also more likely to exercise.(15)  Further, multiple studies have shown that gratitude reduces a myriad of toxic emotions – including depression – while at the same time increasing happiness.(16)  And feeling physically and emotionally balanced and healthy enables you to perform at optimal levels.

Improves sleep and self-esteem
Writing down a few items for which you are grateful before going to sleep has been shown to enhance both the quality and length of sleep.(17)  A 2014 study found that gratitude increases the self-esteem among athletes and leads directly to optimal performance on the field.(18)

Broadens your network
Thanking a new acquaintance makes them more likely to seek an ongoing relationship. Thus, acknowledging contributions from others in the workplace can lead to new opportunities.(19)

Increases mental strength 
For years, research has shown that gratitude can play a major role in overcoming trauma. Recognizing all you have to be thankful for – even during the worst times of your life – fosters resilience.(20)

So raise your awareness of success milestones in order to acknowledge the success and be grateful for it. In doing so, your confidence that you are in sync with the Field will increase (remember the three juncture discussion), and the act of gratitude will further boost or accelerate your positive momentum in the Field.

Natural Connection: What Science Does — and Does Not — Tell Us

Have you ever been sick when someone says to you, “Hey, maybe try going outside for a few minutes to get some fresh air?” Or, “Why don’t you sit in your backyard for just a few minutes? The sun will feel good on your face.”

Or have you ever said to a friend or a loved one who is depressed, “Why I don’t I come over and we can take a short walk in the park?”

Well as you all know, I finished and published my first book, Leverage the Field for Success, last year. The book starts by defining and showing scientific evidence of the energetic field (“the Field”) that connects everything in the universe. The rest of the book then focuses on how we can use that Field to our advantage in the workplace.

As you might imagine, since writing the book I’ve wondered about what scientific evidence exists of the connection between our bodies and our planet. Specifically, I’ve wondered whether there is scientific evidence of the connection between our health and being outdoors.

It turns out there is LOTS of research that conclusively shows the health benefits of being in Nature:

    • The Biomedical and Environment Sciences Journal published a study conducted in China focused on short-term effects of “forest bathing”. A group of healthy men were split into two groups: one group spent two nights and two days in a city, and the other group spent two nights and two days in a forest. The results were clear: The forest group showed reduced oxidative stress and pro-inflammatory levels; cortisol levels were also lower than the urban group, indicating that stress response mechanisms of the forest group were healthier / less active; and, scores for vigor were higher for the forest group.
    • Back in 2012, Psychological Science published a study conducted by Stanford University focused on “the benefits of awe” one experiences in nature. The study concluded that awe expands people’s perception of time, enhances well-being, and causes people to behave more altruistically and less materialistically.
    • Studies also show that spending time in nature is restorative to the brain when a person is experiencing “mental fatigue”, the condition one feels when it seems as if our brain is slowing to a crawl.
    • For those with anxiety or depression challenges, one study found that walks in the forest were associated with decreased levels of anxiety and bad moods.

But what is it about connecting with nature that helps us feel better? Each of these studies tells us that being in nature improves our health and our physical performance levels, but science does not yet know WHAT the connection is.

And this got me thinking about being sick, and what helps us feel better when we are ill. Whether it’s a mother, a sibling, or a spouse, when that person simply enters the room, we feel a little better. For these folks the connection to us is clear: they are compassionate, caring, nurturing, and empathetic.

So let’s switch gears and talk about what makes atheists feel better…well, one atheist anyway. Ricky Gervais is an actor, writer, and producer who writes funny, terribly cynical shows like The Office. He was once asked in an interview, “If God doesn’t give you comfort, what does?” Ricky thought for three or four seconds and then answered, “Dogs”. Ricky went on to say that a dog won’t judge you if you don’t love it back. It’s still going to love you no matter what.

And isn’t that true of just about any pet? Dogs, cats, birds, ferrets, squirrels or even lions (can you tell I’ve been watching pet reunions on YouTube?), these pets love us no matter what. And the health benefits from this affection is now so accepted in main stream society, that Service Dogs / Pets are becoming commonplace.

And all this brings me back to wondering about our connection with Nature, with the Planet:  If the feeling of care and compassion from our relationships – a parent, a spouse or a pet – literally improves our health, what does that say about Earth’s connection with us? A parent or a spouse’s love and care for us improves our health. The unconditional love from a pet improves our health. Given that our health improves when being in Nature, what does this say about Earth’s relationship with us?

Enjoy those outdoors!

 

Blog Re-launch and Journey Update

Hello Everyone.

This is a brief note to let you know that I am re-launching my blog. I had originally intended the blog to be a mix of personal experiences on my journey as an author, interesting scientific developments related to the Field, and tips and tricks for using the Field to one’s advantage in the workplace. However, I fell into a kind of obligatory rut, feeling like I had to write about something that demonstrated clear value or ROI (return on investment) for each reader. In short, the blog felt more like writing professionally polished articles than writing a blog.

With that, let me give you an update regarding my journey as an author and speaker. In the spring I focused on a variety of online promotion efforts to generate sales for Leverage the Field for Success. While those efforts did create spikes in sales, none generated more sales than the promotional cost. In other words, they were money-losing efforts that did not lead to sustained sales.

In early summer, I switched to focusing on writing articles and blogs. This effort seemed more promising as my blog “email-open-rates” were significantly higher than national averages. Things also looked promising on the article front. An article I wrote for Recruiter.com titled, The Quantum Reality Approach to Job Searching: Using ‘the Field’ to Land the Right Offer had over 25,000 views in just five days, the highest number of views of five articles published at the same time on Recruiter.com. But despite publishing four articles and achieving high blog-read rates, book sales remained flat.

So, in late summer I decided to shift gears and focus on launching my speaking career. I had always intended to become a paid speaker to support sales of my book, but it now looked like speaking gigs would need to generate initial sales of the book. Using a version of an hour-long talk I gave in back in May, I cut down my hour long talk down to 20 – 25 minutes. Over a period of 10 days in September, I gave the talk four times (for free) to various civic clubs, each time re-working my slides and the speech based on interactions and questions from the audience. I created whole new slides and content, deleted much of the science-based content, and eventually arrived at a 17-18 minute talk.

Why change the talk so much? I had assumed that audiences would need thorough proof of the quantum field and its accessibility. It turns out they easily accepted the reality of the Field, and they were instead quite keen to hear how one uses mechanisms of the Field in the workplace. And this is what my talk now delivers. After delivering the fourth iteration of the talk, I sold more books than the three previous talks combined!

I have six talks lined up over the next few months and am not only looking forward to interacting with audiences, but also to an increasing trend in book sales!

Next Blog: The subject of my next blog will be based on a speech I gave at Toastmasters here in Quincy. The focus will be on the scientific proof that being in nature improves one’s health, but the blog will close with a question that science does not yet address.  Look for ‘Natural Connection’ next week, and wishing you great days till then!    jjm

The Quantum Field: Trump, The Squad, and Courage

The quantum field – or simply “the Field” – is an unbiased structure that underpins all reality.  It does not champion good people or bad people.  It simply exists in the same way gravity exists:  it just is.  The Field does, however, have two core attributes:  expansion and balance.  So based on these attributes, who might the Field lend more support in the Trump vs. The Squad controversy, which revolves around immigration and race?  To find the answer, let’s first review a basic definition of the Field and its top priorities.

The Field Defined and Its Core Attributes.  The quantum field is a scientifically measured reality.  It is not theory.  Consider the following facts as proven via scientific experiments and measurable observations:  i) at the base of all physical matter are tiny electromagnetic energy waves, ii) as two electromagnetic waves intersect, they exchange data, and iii) communication in the Field is instantaneous.  This reality means that all living and innate matter in our world are connected all the time.  Whether or not we realize it, we are interacting with the Field every…single…instant.  How might this web of energy impact the political fight between Trump and The Squad?  To understand how the Field works and, thus, to which argument it might facilitate more support, we need to consider the goals of the Field.

What are the top two priorities of the Field?  Expansion and Balance.  Everything in the universe has a drive to expand – humans, animals, plants, bacteria, even the universe itself.  And optimal expansion springs from ideal balance.  In the Trump-Squad controversy we see an interplay of the balance and expansion principles.  Let’s simplify the positions of Trump and The Squad, then we will apply the Field’s principles.

Three Arguments and Courage.  The essence of Trump’s argument is for a stable, uniform society.  Put simply, with his immigration ban on Muslim countries, his hardline stance on a border wall with Mexico, and his recent effort to expand the sweep of ICE’s deportation efforts, Trump believes that a whiter America will lead to a more prosperous America.  The Squad, on the other hand, points to progressive civil rights principles – liberty and freedom for all people – in their stance that the US should respect the self-expression and religious beliefs of all immigrants and races (assuming they meet the standard immigration requirements that have been in place since 2012).

If the argument of the Field could be summed up in a simple expression it would be this:  Expansion = Balance + Contrasts.  While maximum expansion indeed springs from ideal balance, the reality is that growth results when facing and dealing with challenges / contrasts.  Through addressing and learning from challenges, higher states of balance (increased prosperity) can be reached.  It takes courage to face challenge, and arguments can be made both ways in this controversy.  Trump can argue that he is being courageous in speaking what he believes most Americans think, and The Squad can argue that they are being courageous in standing up for the inalienable rights captured in constitutional law.

Courage and the Expansive Path.  The Field supports those with courageous hearts as such individuals and institutions will likely experience great growth (expansion) from the challenges they face, navigate, and learn from.  Why?  Because as the individual expands, the Field expands as well; thus, its number one goal (expansion) is achieved.  Trump’s courageous fight is for short term turmoil followed by long term stability (reduce number of immigrants for a more stable white society).  The Squad’s position is that immigrants and non-white races may be challenging for the country in the short term and the long term, but the resulting diversity will ultimately make the country stronger.  On the face value of these simplified statements and given its connectedness to all resources on the planet, the Field will ultimately facilitate more support to The Squad.  Put another way, a society that welcomes and faces change will lead to more expansion, while a society bent on not changing will experience less expansion.

Who will adjust?  Remember that the courageous path is the expansive path.  Trump and The Squad are both being courageous, and both will have ample opportunity to listen, to adapt their arguments, and to learn and grow from their experience.  The Field will be aware of their ability to grow (expand) and will support those who are open to greater personal growth.  So will Trump adjust his trajectory based on valid constitutional points made by The Squad?  Will The Squad have the courage to explore why 40% of the country feels anger toward immigrants?

Understanding the Field’s propensities of expansion and balance, what will be your courageous position?

The Field & New Study: Humans Have Magnetic Receptor

   It’s been long known that animals have some way of tapping into the magnetic poles, aiding in their migration patterns.  Migrating birds or ocean-crossing sea turtles are perhaps the best illustrations of “animal magnetic navigation”, but as a data analyst, I find the red fox to be a compelling example.

   During winter in the northern most region of the US, the red fox hunts for mice under the deep snow.  The fox listens intently, cocking its head one way and then another until it finally jumps high in the air, diving nose first into the snow.  The vast majority of the time the fox comes up empty handed.  However, when the fox is facing north, he is successful 75% of the time.  This has led to the theory that somehow the fox uses the magnetic north pole to triangulate the exact position of the mouse – or rather, the magnetic signature of the mouse.  Hence, its 75% catch rate when facing north.

   Examples such as the red fox, migrating birds, and ocean faring sea turtles have led researchers to wonder whether humans might also have some magnetic-interfacing capability.  We’ve known for some time that while the brain has the second strongest magnetic wave in the human body, the magnetic wave of the heart is 5,000 times stronger than that of the brain, measuring as much as 10 feet outside the human body.  So, if we are projecting such strong magnetic energy, isn’t it possible we have a way of receiving or reading magnetic waves from other sources?

   Just two months ago, a study was published providing conclusive evidence for such a human capability.  To measure the magnetic reception ability, participants in the study were hooked up an electroencephalogram (EEG) machine while they sat in a dark room surrounded by sets of large square coils.  The coils were then charged with electricity to simulate the magnetic field of the earth.  The orientation of the magnetic field was then shifted in various directions.  For some of the participants, the EEG captured clear signals as their brains responded to a change in direction from northeast to northwest, while the EEG showed others responding to changes in the incline or angle of the magnetic field.  It is suspected that tiny magnetic particles scattered throughout the brain enable this magnetic-reception capability, but much is still unknown.  For example, many in the study did not respond at all.  Further, those that responded to a change from northeast to northwest, had no response when the change was from northwest to northeast. 

    While there is still much to learn about our magnetic capabilities, future research seems certain to uncover the exact mechanics of how we send and receive magnetic information.  This will, in turn, help us better understand how we can interact with the electromagnetic structure upon which the universe is based, the Field.

A Human-on-Globe Example. You can read more about the impact of human magnetic energy on the global magnetic field in my examination of the geostationary operational environmental satellites (GOES) measurements during the attacks on September 11, 2001, in my book, Leverage the Field for Success — Using Quantum Reality to Succeed in the Corporate World
