Mental Blocks ...

I watched a tv programme last night about different faiths around the world.

Indian believers in the Hindu faith were shown demonstrating their fire walking skills. Asked if they ever got burnt they replied 'No' because of their unwavering belief that they would not. But they said that those who did not truly believe did get burnt.

A Christian preacher was shown handled very venemous snakes. He said he trusted implicitly in Jesus that he would not be harmed, and he had never been harmed. The snakes will attack if they sense fear but he said he had no fear at all of the snakes.

It did not seem to matter what faith or religion,  the power was all in the strength of the belief.

I think the power of the mind is very very underestimated  ... ..

LouLou, do they talk to rice before or after they cook it?

Then do they eat it?

So many questions...

Doesn't everyone?

Placebos do work that I know for sure



Also I remember an evening where everyone got steadily more giggly and silly as they drank wine.



But the wine was non alcoholic .. they were quite disbelieving when I told them

There is no question that animals sense things outside of what they see, smell, taste, hear. There is much evidence about this.



Even to knowing when it is time for their masters to come home.



I am glad that my parents raised me to be open minded and explore possibilities! There are so many interesting things to contemplate in this world!!

We know that animals have many senses far keener than ours .. a sixth sense is hard to prove scientifically in animals or humans.



But I believe it exists and some people and animals are far more attuned than others

There are many fascinating books that explore this in both animals and humans. We have only scratched the surface in our understanding of the mind and it's capabilities.



Placebos work because of the power of belief. The drug may have been ineffective, but the effect is real!

Thank you datura . .. to me it seems obvious that there is a sixth sense .. just through my personal experience and my experiences with animals both wild and domestic.

I am very interested in the power of the mind and am sure most of us use just a fraction of it.

YEAH I HAVE READ......THE CHINESE ARE USING SNAKES TO PREDICT EARTHQUAKES SOME THING TO DO WITH MILD VIBRATIONS THAT THEY CAN PICK UP ON THE SURFACE THEY GO IN TO A PANIC AND THE CHINESE GET FORTY MINUTES ADDITIONAL WARNINGS.......PHYSIC DOGS WERE STUDIED IN RUSSIA WHERE THEY WERE QUITE POPULAR AND ALWAYS FOUND TO BE AN ELEBORATE HOAX ...THERE WERE A LOT OF FAMOUS CASES FROM THE SIXTYS AND SEVENTIES. THERE WAS EVEN PHYSIC HORSES AND PIGS..... ANIMALS ARE NOT STUPID AND I AM SURE YOUR DOG IS PICKING UP ON THINGS YOU ARE NOT EVEN AWARE OF.....MAYBE YOU WEAR BOOTS OR RUNNERS TO GO TO THE PARK MAYBE HE KNOWS THERE SCENT AND CAN WORK OUT THE REST.

Of course animals can sense fear, Tasmin. And there have been studies done and books written that show they can sense far more than that!



But, back to your original point, I also believe that the power of the mind is tremendous and will come to be realized more and more.

Oh tons .. I get the dog lead to take my dog to the vet and he's scarpered, get the lead to take him to the park and he's at the door all ready.



In the Tsunami far fewer animals died than expected.



There are many eye witness accounts stating that hours before the waves hit the shore both domestic and wild animals, that were able to do so, fled to higher ground.

EVIDENCE?

I definitely believe animals have a sixth sense .. and I believe we do too

YOU BELIEVE SNAKES ARE PHYSIC... ARE HAVE SOME KIND OF SIXTH SENSE?

I believe that the snake is much more likely to attack if it senses fear

SURE THE WORST THING YOU CAN DO IN FIRE WALKING IS HAVE DOUBT IT UP SETS THE RYTHEM OF THE WALK YOU HAVE TO BE QUICK AND STEADY..SNAKE HANDLING... NO THATS RUSSIAN ROULETT....ITS PURE CHANCE.....ALL THE POSITIVE THINKING IN THE WORLD WONT EFFECT THE SNAKE.

But isn't it still due to a positive state of mind .. ?

FIRE WALKING IS STRAIGHT FORWARD ENOUGH ANY ONE CAN LEARN TO DO IT. SNAKE HANDLING CHECK OUT THE NET HUNDREDS OF VIDEOS OF PREACHERS GETTING MULTIPLE STRIKES FROM SNAKES ITS SOME KIND OF HILLBILLY TEST OF FAITH I KNOW OF NO WHERE ELSE IN THE CHRISTIAN WORLD THIS IS DONE........BUT AMERICANS DO SEEM TO TAKE EVERY THING LITERALLY ESPECIALLY THE BIBLE
