(In5D.com) Many believe that conscious awareness originates in the brain alone. Recent scientific research suggests that consciousness actually emerges from the brain and body acting together. A growing body of evidence suggests that the heart plays a particularly significant role in this process. Far more than a simple pump, as was once believed, the heart is now recognized by scientists as a highly complex system with its own functional “brain.”

(AwakenedVibrations.com) It seems that the connection between thought, emotions, space and time is far greater than understood before. Here is a short introduction to the idea that thoughts can manipulate physical reality, and emotions can render the concept of time:
One of the secrets to “hack” your biology to improve creativity and thinking skills is to learn how to relax your body and mind using breathing techniques. A great breathing technique that creates coherence between the heart, brain, body and mind involves breathing through the heart. Breathing through the heart has been scientifically proven to improve energy flow, creativity, performance and thinking skills.

I am almost certain that all of you have heard of the saying “trust your intuition” or “follow your intuition.” But before you can follow your intuition, you need to know what intuition means.
(Collective-Evolution.com) While people have been practicing meditation for thousands of years, it has recently been gaining increasing popularity in the mainstream as science continues to shed light in its many health benefits. From decreasing stress and anxiety to rebuilding the brain, it truly is a panacea for mental and physical well-being.
(WakingTimes.com) There are countless descriptions of the powers of the pineal to transport us into other realms, but perhaps no other explanation is as clear and concise as that offered by Jaggi Vasudev, commonly known as Sadhguru, the Indian yogi, and mystic. This wise teacher tells us that the mysteries of the pineal are found beyond its physical location in the body. He explains that we can believe in peace, but true ecstatic union with the Divine can only happen through the pathless path – that is a transcendence of the physical reality which we currently are experiencing.
Most of us have been conditioned by the mainstream science community to think that we can only use 10 percent of our brains. This is designed to condition us to think that we are weak and powerless. The fact is that we can access 100 percent of our brains but can only use a certain percentage of our brains in the present moment. However, the more we learn how to balance the left and right hemispheres of our brains and educate our minds with knowledge of empowerment, the more we can use more of our brains in the present moment.
(PreventDisease.com) There are various states of consciousness, however meditation is one of the most important of them. It increases cardiovascular quality, lowers blood pressure, decreases anxiety and among quantum physicists is considered the fourth state of consciousness in which the entire brain is engaged.

(Collective-Evolution.com) It’s fascinating to consider just how many ancient teachings tell us that humans have the capacity to gain extraordinary powers through various techniques. Some of these techniques, known as siddhis in the yoga tradition (from the Sanskrit, meaning “perfection”), include meditation, static dancing, drumming, praying, fasting, psychedelics, and more.
(TheSpiritScience.net) Many studies have been done to diagnose the physiological changes in humans during meditation. None have been this comprehensive or had detailed information about a before and after. Sara Lazar, senior author at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Psychiatric Neuroimaging Research Program and instructor of psychology at Harvard Medical School, has done studies on meditation before. They found that first time practitioner’s cerebral cortex’s thickened in the areas associated with attention and emotional integration. Those studies were not sufficient to say the changes were from meditations.
