my belief -- one I hold strongly . . . is that consciousness is not housed "within the brain"
motor functions may be driven by activity within the brain
but consciousness is "non-local" . . . meaning that it is "around us" and is something we "tap into"
many people, understandably so, will say that everything we "think" is the result of "inserting" information in to the mind through some "absorption pattern": reading, seeing, listening . . . an "experience" that we capture and store
and, if this were true, then yes psychic ability should be impossible
but psychic ability exists . . . I do it all the time and I am, for sure, not the only one
I believe consciousness is something akin to a giant "energy grid" AROUND US
that we tap into much as we might tap into wi-fi at Starbucks
our "access code" to higher and higher "levels" within this grid is (I believe) something we "earn" through various channels
and psychic ability is, looked at from this angle, simply being given greater access codes to information, much like higher and higher levels of Security Clearance by the government
I keep "preaching" that stuff "happens" PRIMARILY because we are in "alignment" with a particular "state of being"
clear your mind of fear, as much as possible, and "allow" yourself to find greater and greater levels of clarity so as to be "in sync" with greater degrees of access to this consciousness "grid"
crazee idea to some -- but I believe more and more with each passing year
that this is "the truth"
