I took the time to put this together to help others see how powerful their mind is:
Are Ghosts real? - Yes...
The only ones that made themselves known publicly are the famous luminous orb U.F.O.'s being uploaded onto YouTube.
They can shift between the visible and invisible spectrum of light.
They can create crop circles using some type of electromagnetic force that they emit, they are possibly sigils.
They've been around since the dawn of time, there are even records of them in egyptian pyramids, and in ancient biblical texts.
People have anthropomorphised these luminous beings.
But... All they are, Are ghosts of dead creatures.
These luminous beings can probably manipulate you through your stomach which is associated with your unconscious mind.
Anyways - Here is how tricky our unconscious can be when it utilizes our subconscious;
Neuroplasticity refers to the potential that the brain has to reorganize by creating new neural pathways to adapt, as it needs. Think of the neurological changes being made in the brain as the brain's way of tuning itself to meet your needs.
Let's say you're mother dies, and you loved her so much that you cannot bare to know she's gone.
Your unconscious mind will not allow you to feel pain if you miss your dead mother so much, it will put on a mask that represents her.
Your unconscious mind will utilize what you know about her behaviour and simulate that by accessing your subconscious mind and then augmenting her personality through you or through a dream.
Same goes for missing your ex, your unconscious mind will pretend to be her by accessing your subconscious mind.
And that's a percentage of what neuroplasticity is, your brain cannot handle loss - so it replaces it the best it can.
Your Brain is God: Religion in the 21st Century
What's the Latest Development?
Oliver Sacks, the popular author and professor of neuroscience at NYU, claims that the brain alone is sufficient to provide for the kinds of religious experience that have convinced several neuroscientists, presumably skeptical of metaphysical forces, that God and heaven do exist. The dark tunnel often described by people who have near-death experiences can be explained by the constriction of the visual field due to compromised blood pressure in the eyes. And the bright light at the end of the tunnel represents a flow of visual excitation from the brainstem to the visual cortext.
What's the Big Idea?
Sacks does not deny that the experience of higher realms of existence can play a part in spiritual life or even have great meaning for an individual, but the roots of the experience, he insists, remain terrestrial: "The tendency to spiritual feeling and religious belief lies deep in human nature and seems to have its own neurological basis, though it may be very strong in some people and less developed in others. ... [H]allucinations cannot provide evidence for the existence of any metaphysical beings or places. --- They provide evidence only of the brain's power to create them. ---"
The need for someone to be there to take care of us, our unconscious mind will create multiple personalities from our subconscious mind and trick us into believing that we are contacting God or its Angels, e.t.c.
In a kind of spooky experiment, scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences reveal that our decisions are made seconds before we become aware of them.
In the study, participants could freely decide if they wanted to press a button with their right or left hand.
The only condition was that they had to remember when they made the decision to either use their right hand or left hand.
Using fMRI, researchers would scan the brains of the participants while all of this was going on in order to find out if they could in fact predict which hand the participants would use BEFORE they were consciously aware of the decision.
By monitoring the micro patterns of activity in the frontopolar cortex, the researchers could predict which hand the participant would choose 6-7 SECONDS before the participant was aware of the decision.
“Your decisions are strongly prepared by brain activity. By the time consciousness kicks in, most of the work has already been done,” said study co-author John-Dylan Haynes, a Max Planck Institute neuroscientist.
I don’t even know where to begin here! I know from the hypnosis research that the unconscious pretty much controls everything and that consciousness is extremely limited.
But, I do find it a bit disconcerting that decisions are made by unconscious me 7 seconds before conscious me…
I am not the only one.
Watch Marcus Du Sautoy (Professor of Mathematics at the University of Oxford) go through the study himself. The 7 second delay is in full effect.
Marcus is really disturbed here and brings up the subject of free will. Does this mean we really do NOT have free will?
This is how we get tricked by our unconscious mind that utilizes our subconscious mind.
It already knows what you want (6-7) seconds before you're consciously aware of your desire.
It will not make you do something you don't want to experience... But it can if you have some type of neurological disorder.
Hall and Amy Tanner, who observed some of the trances, explained the phenomena in terms of the subconscious mind harboring various personalities that pretended to be spirits or controls. In their view, Piper had subconsciously absorbed information that she later regurgitated as messages from "spirits" in her trances.
I recently came to light about this particular information from Desecrated's thread.
We all can do this on accident, regurgitate messages we perceive are coming from an external spirit.
Tulpa is a concept in mysticism of a being or object which is created through sheer spiritual or mental discipline alone.
Nikola Tesla had the ability to augment his visualizations into his perceived reality as though it were actually there, but instead of being crazy seeing monsters and what not - he instead saw his ideas come to life before him and then actually made them real.
He knew how electricity and magnetism and chemicals worked, which became beliefs in his subconscious mind from which his unconscious mind projected them before his eyes and ears allowing him to be potentially unstoppable if he were to be a villain which he wasn't, he became our hero.
To this day religious people pray to a God when they are alone and receive some type of emotional stimulation of energy within their body, being a pressure or electrical buzzing. This happens after so many prayers go unanswered, the unconscious mind acts like a puppet by picking up the slack of a God that isn't answering prayers. I know this because I was going through a tough time with a religious person who abused their comfort in God by being thuggish thinking that all they have to do is pray to God for forgiveness. So I created a mask for my unconscious mind by choosing to believe in a God Of Darkness And Death. I prayed to her and at the end of the prayer I felt something enter my forhead and flow down into my heart and expand itself throughout my body making me feel like my etheric body or spirit somehow became bigger.
Egregore (also egregor) is an occult concept representing a "thoughtform" or "collective group mind", an autonomous psychic entity made up of, and influencing, the thoughts of a group of people.
This is the same thing as a Tulpa except that a group of people are perceiving the same thought form which makes it very powerful, because it is almost like a man and a women making love to create a baby, the two become one, so obviously two people perceiving the same tulpa is creating an actual spirit that can do things for them both, the only difference between this astral spirit is that it doesn't have a physical body nor is it at a young age mentally.
It then makes sense why so many people believe in an interactive God that answers prayers every now and then.
Also this is the reason why most witches wait at: "3:00 A.M.", To perform magick, because prayers cease at that time, leaving wiggle room for magick to work.
It's really hard to tell the difference between your unconscious mind acting out your subconscious beliefs - from the activity of an external spirit.
So here is my two cents on how spirits behave according to my own personal experience.
1.) Spirits tend to be in corners.
2.) Spirits tend to give us visions through dreams.
3.) They can tell you what's in the next room.
4.) Their true form when you're not on drugs and are awake and not dreaming - are luminous orbs and sometimes they can be invisible, and ARE ... Usually.
Your unconscious mind itself can utilize a belief via your subconscious mind to manipualte your brain in order to perform telekinesis - but it is highly improbable, it's more likely to be a spirit.
Hope this helps. ~
