Throughout time people of all faiths, races, and nationalities have struggled to be happier, to feel better, and to experience that there is more to life than merely fighting for survival. Two breakthroughs in science now make those wishes more attainable. First, we now know that a part of the brain, called the Limbic System, is primarily responsible for most of life’s miseries. More important, its negative effects can be countered naturally with mind/body techniques. Second, Superstrings Physics has made Soul more than just a religious term by explaining that everything exists in a minimum of 10 or more dimensions. When you learn to how to rise above the Limbic Brain and tap those dimensions beyond, you can “Live Life AS a Soul,” with all the unlimited potentials that are your birthright.
Dr. Robert Heath, a former Dean of Tulane University Medical School discovered that a little known area of the brain called the Septum Pellucidum had direct neurosynaptic connections to a major mood-elevation center in the hypothalamus. When severely depressed patients had electrodes implanted in the septum pellucidum, they experienced relief from their depression and a feeling of well-being. My book Access Your Brain’s Joy Center (or Free Soul’s Instructors) can teach you how to rapidly self-trigger that area of the brain with mind/body techniques. This gives you the ability to “Feel Better Fast” without alcohol, drugs, nicotine, or overeating.
The latest in Superstrings Physics is called M-Theory. The M stands for membrane. Scientists probably just got tired of trying to draw 10 dimensional concepts on 2-dimensional textbook pages. What they now say is, “Think of this membrane (this slice), as our Universe. It is real, but it is not all there is. There are beyonds above, and beyonds below.”
The Soul-shift technique (see below) gives you an easy method for tapping into that beyond. It is also a first line of defense against the Limbic Brain. Why would you want to tap into that beyond? First, if you are a person of faith, because that beyond is where the divine is. Second, even if you are a complete atheist, tapping into that beyond is the key to enhancing your success and happiness.
Consider this example. Every land based telescope (Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Kit Peak in Tucson, Mt. Palomar in California, etc.) all pale in comparison to the Hubble Telescope, because the Hubble Telescope is in space above the distorting effects of the atmosphere. When you can do the Soul-shift, you can rise above the negative and limiting distorting effects of the 3-dimensional realm. When Einstein was asked, “How did you get this stuff?” he was quoted as saying, “I’ve learned to tap into the universal unconscious.” He had learned to get “Outside the Box” and into that beyond.
The distortions that dominate the 3-dimensional realm are the worries, angers, hurts, and fears created by the Limbic Brain. The Limbic Brain is actually what keeps people, regardless of their faith, from living more of their Soul potentials. When you know the Soul-shift technique, you can rise above the negative effects of the Limbic Brain and more effectively tap into that beyond for prayer, meditation, self-healing, creative thinking and happiness.
