The Power of Thought (2013)

Available worldwide

For many generations, researchers have been trying to unravel the nature of human thought.

“I think, therefore I am” – but, what are thoughts? Just some fleeting void? Or a huge and as yet scarcely researched secret of life? Plan, act, react – what lies behind the game of life? What animates and drives our thoughts, and what are the effects of thoughts?

Thoughts are invisible, but they have a great effect – evidently reaching beyond our own bodies. Through thought we influence our environment and are influenced by it. The latest research confirms what ancient wisdom told us: our responsibility also embraces the inner world. Through each decision we direct the course of our lives and decide our fate. The power of thought – the fire of the soul – makes us human.

Well done. A clear, concise presentation backed up with scientific evidence that our thoughts effect our bodies, our experiences and our surroundings. It's approaches like this that open peoples minds to our true potential. One day maybe we'll have schools that teach us how to use the power of our thoughts in a creative, constructive and productive way and we can collectively begin to recreate our planet and ourselves.

I think this is a good step and video to open people's minds to the fact that they can focus thought and direct it. There are always negatives if folks do not come from a place of love and higher thought. It is a great responsibility to have knowledge because people do not always have good intent. But it is knowledge thus requires focus, practice, loving intent and application as well as belief and patience. I would also ask for higher protection from a mighty loving force in order to gain protection against all those who come with ill intent.

I've given Gaia a fair assessment after watching many hours, on many days, of countless shows. And the more I watch the more I see an underline agenda that may be just as sinister, if not more sinister and devious as the very thing they pretend to warn us from. Icke, Wilcock, Greer, they're all part of a grander false-flag operation.

Now here they're presenting thought/mind reading like it's a benign science, when in reality they're seeking to develop a base-line for mind control and precognitive policing of the global society.

Run. Run far away from this shit and never look back.

Was there a subliminal withered message in this video?
It happened around Dr Gerald Huther explanation "39:05".
You may need headphones to hear it.
If those ARE subliminal messages. Please STOP. You're disturbing my viewing experience.

Maybe a person's perception is their realty if so we do need to be careful with our thoughts.

You are correct, but not entirely.
Think about a great tree. The tree is well but some of its branches are damaged due to a recent storm. Naturally, the trees defense system kicks in and repairs most of the damage. But before it completely does some of it turns to fungus and mold. The mold separates slowly and a few more branches begin to die and fall from the tree.
My question is, does the tree die because of this?
Is this not a natural course of cause and effect?
Even the lifeless branches become new life, with time..

What I'm saying is what you see is a reflection of yourself.
You are the "reality" that's before you.
We are fractals.
We are the mind of God. But yes.

Great power comes with great responsibility.
But in the end, its all apart of the expanding experience.
Doing without doing...Always becoming.

I apologize for my rant.

The Power of Thought would be very interesting if it played. How can the constant interruptions of loosing signal be stopped ?

reception is due to the quality of the signal and speed and bandwitch at Your computer - not from the website or video source.
maybe look into upgrading your service if you want a faster speed without pauses.

Intrusive thoughts, like those experienced by OCD sufferers, are not controllable or chosen by the sufferer. This is what causes the anxiety as the sufferer knows that the thoughts are "bad" but cannot control them. Where do these thoughts come from and why? Currently, the thinking is that it is a neurochemical problem that causes intrusive thoughts. Are we purely the sum of our chemicals?

I think the thoughts are manifested by anxiety, not the other way round. I could be wrong but it's what makes sense to me. Control the deep rooted fear to control the anxiety then perhaps the thoughts are easier controlled. Or maybe you control the anxiety by changing your thoughts first?...which is easier said than done though.

I am currently doing a master's degree in psychology and work hard to bridge my esoteric theories with those of mainstream academics. I am recommending this to our class. It has the potential for a great "aha" moment!

Just wanted to wish you the best on your integration, your making brave choices that others would not even consider.

Fascinating, particularly the point at which it is said that it is by reversing the spin of the electrons that our "consciousness" gains leverage on the physical aspect of our being through turning thoughts into actions. Having been watching David Wilcock's show, where he is intimating that electrons as currently perceived by mainstream science as particles do not exist, but instead are an emanation of an underlying harmonic geometry, I wonder if there is some direct linkage between the spiritual and the physical that they represent? Are they in fact the key as to how consciousness manifests and shapes the physical world, binds it into the atomic structures that define our time and space?

I always enjoy watching scientific experiments and their results to go along with the subject being explored. I do believe our thoughts influence everything down to our cells and am glad people don't give up trying to explore and test ideas.
I am interested in documentaries that show more telepathy and thought experiments across distances. Any suggestions of what to view surrounding that?

Denise, check out William Tiller and Suzy Miller re the work William is doing with autistic children. I don't have details, but you should be able to find things with a net search. I also believe that Regina Meredith interviewed Suzy, but I'm not sure about William. Jim Self has interviewed both Suzy and William in his "Conversations With..." radio show. What they are doing is amazing! I think you'll like it.... :)

Best to you,
L Olk
