New LSD Study Provides Insight into Higher States of Consciousness

2017-02-06T19:03:35+00:00

There are four states of consciousness that contemporary science is aware of. The two that we typically operate in are wakefulness and sleeping. The third area of consciousness is dreaming, which most people don’t pay much attention to, and the fourth state—the one which we know the least about—is the transcendental state. This is the state of mind where mystical experiences or lucid phenomena occur that transcends space and time. Objectively inexplicable, the transcendental state transcends categories, is an experience that takes us beyond linear time and three-dimensional space, gives us insight into ourselves, and produces feelings of oneness with [...]

I want to invite you all to a simple challenge that I think could have a big impact. As we all know, to produce a change or accomplish something new in our life takes time. Why?

How do you motivate motivation?

2017-02-06T19:03:35+00:00

It’s no great secret that thinking about motivation doesn’t actually produce motivation. This was recently illustrated in a study published in the journal Neuron. In the study, researchers placed 73 people into an fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imagery). Unlike older EEG technology (electroencephalography) used to detect electrical activity, fMRIs can actually pinpoint parts of the brain that are activated in specific tasks; in this case they focused on the ventral tegmental area—the part of the brain responsible for motivation. Once placed in the fMRI, researchers asked participants to motivate themselves. If successful, the fMRI would light up the corresponding area [...]
