I listened to a Coast to Coast segment with Lynn McTaggart this morning regarding human connections. I found her content very interesting, not to mention timely, considering our discussions on like-minded communities. It seems we are much healthier when we are part of communities and groups. The most at-risk segments of society have nothing to do with money, and much more to do with fitting into the larger whole. I did a review of her book The Intention Experiment here.
We act and think differently when we realize we are part of a whole - it includes a whole new paradigm, in a much larger context, contrary to the way most of us have grown up - which is all about competition and survival of the fittest. We actually thrive when we work together. In other words we are "wired to care, share, and be fair."
However, she also talks about negative intention. It also has effects! It works really well. One example, from a caller, was the power of thought on celebrities - such as Farah Faucett - could all those not so nice thoughts from men regarding sexual fantasies, or negative thoughts from jealous women, have had an effect on her health? She says the way to protect yourself from negative intentions is to go into your "homing thought." That is the place that has to do with why you were put on this planet. Not your job, but that place that has to do with your mission. She says that gives you immunity to negative thoughts.
I downloaded her new book, The Bond, and will certainly let you know what I learn since this is such an important topic not only from an individual point of view, but also from a societal and world view. If interested you may want to catch this segment on Coast to Coast.
