A study published in September 2009 by scientists at Deakin University in Melbourne, Australia, reported on the experiences of 25 obese women who took a 12-week course in yoga. Throughout the course, the women kept a personal journal where they reported on their thoughts and feelings about food, how much they ate, what they ate, the quality of their eating experiences, how they felt on an emotional level, and of course their experiences of the yoga.
A Harvard University study published in 2008 found the first compelling evidence that the Relaxation Response (RR) – the physiological response to meditation, yoga, tai chi, Qi Gong or repetitive prayer – affects our genes. Nineteen adults were long-term daily practitioners of various RR techniques, 20 were trained in RR eliciting techniques (breathing, mantra and mindfulness meditation) for 8 weeks, and 19 served as controls.
Your brain cannot tell the difference between something that’s real and whether you are just imagining it. Neuroscientists at Harvard taught a simple 5-fingered combination of piano notes to a group of people – thumb, index finger, middle finger, ring finger, little finger – which they played over and over again for 2 hours a day. They did this for 5 consecutive days.

Recently I have returned from the most beautiful and surreal experience that transpired within our group Guardian planetary grid project that we participated with over the last month. Our group had the opportunity to witness the frequency of the New Open Architecture that supports “Unity Source Code” geometry - penetrate and anchor into the physical elemental planes collapsing potentially destructive timelines into other positive potential timelines for humanity’s access.
The following is the 3rd message that we received in Egypt. We are sharing this message here with you just as we received it, in present time, with very little editing. We do this for a very important reason. We know the messages that we receive are not just for our groups, but are for humanity. So as you read this, just imagine that you were there with us . . .
The wisdom of the Universe is contained within each of you. All knowledge and knowing, all truths and understandings are held within your consciousness. If you already know everything then what is the purpose of your journey? Why do you have to experience karma, lessons, pain, fear and suffering and the knowledge you gain from them if you already know everything they have to teach you? But your knowing is in the higher planes and vibrations and without awareness you cannot bring it to your third dimensional experience.
Much has been said about Terra Nova – the idea of a New Earth where all beings live in Peace while Nature thrives. It is obvious the old ways are passing and a new way of being in the world is in the process of being created. The Earth is perfectly aligned for a Spontaneous Evolution in consciousness.
Hopefully you are one of the souls upon mother Gaia who are "gliding along" this week and tapping into the deeper layers of the ever present NOW by communing with the Here-ness and Is-ness of each divine moment. Lately I have grown increasingly aware of "the multi-layers of reality" going on within any given moment of an experience. Perhaps the same is occurring for you too.
The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity. Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun/Moon/Mercury/Venus/Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus/Neptune/Pluto). And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social plane
