Good day. Today I’m glad to introduce to you a new contributor to this site. I’m proud to introduce to you drew hempel (drew insists on writing his name all lowercase). drew has experience in qigong and healing and has experienced telekinesis, telepathy and precognition, as he wrote me in his email.
<p>drew's articles are thorough, sophisticated, full of references to books and researches. I hope you take his writing seriously as it deserves. My hope is that drew will write more articles for mind-energy.net and share his experience and knowledge with us. </p>
Today, let me present his article titled ‘The Secret of Psychic Music Healing’. I hope you enjoy it a much as I did. It’s longer than my usual articles, so set aside some time to read it undisturbed.
The Secret of Psychic Music Healing
by drew hempel, MA
Psychic music as a topic of parapsychology was the focus of amazing research by D. Scott Rogo. His books have been recently reissued by
href="http://www.anomalistbooks.com/">http://www.anomalistbooks.com/. D. Scott Rogo discovered that most psychic music experiences were of vocal music (not instrumental) and more recently psychic music is less common. This decline in psychic music is because in the West we have a very limited concept of music while in nonwestern cultures music is used for psychic healing. What is missing from the West is this: sound resonates into ultrasonics which resonates with chemicals to produce electromagnetic energy and light as information — sonoluminesence.
Vitus B. Droscher details in his book The Magic of the Senses (1971) that humans can hear ultrasonics — but only within our heads. The highest tone or pitch that humans hear in their head actually covers several octaves of frequency going into ultrasonics. The ultrasonics then combines with
our body chemistry, forming cavitation bubbles which collapse with great heat and produce light. Biophysicists like Dr. Mae-Wan Ho and Dr. Fritz Alfred Popp have proven that when the body has too much energy or trapped light then disease arises while healthy people actually give off light. In fact it’s been proven that dolphins regularly use this ultrasonic light healing: http://www.aquathought.com/idatra/symposium/95/cole.html
Yesterday a visitor of the site, who identified himself as L K Tucker wrote me a message through the site’s Contact Form. He supports and possible even develops the idea that a vision phenomena related to peripheral vision can lead to psychosis. In his opinion, many paranormal events, including the benefits if Qi Gong and yoga can be explained by the same phenomena. I’d like to quote his message verbatim and then my quick reply to its content:
I have a bit of odd information for you that might bear on parapsychology investigations.
In the 1960’s designers and engineers discovered a previously unknown problem with the physiology of sight. Office workers using newly designed close-spaced workstations began to have mental breaks. The cubicle was created to solve this problem. Cubicles are designed to block side or peripheral vision for a concentrating worker.
But this is a problem that follows a behavior. Unprotected office workspace is only one way to cause this problem.
It would be pointless to investigate events believed to be caused by paranormal sources until this problem has been eliminated as the cause.
Qi Gong and Kundalini Yoga are two more sources of exposure. When users engage eyes-open concentration to correctly perform the exercise they can subliminally detect movement of others exercising near them. That’s what causes the exercised to appear to be able to improve health. Users are being exposed to accidental subliminal operant conditioning.
My site is a collection of research notes about this problem. It is the only source of this information on the Internet.
The bottom line is that too-small single-room ethnic or traditional cultural housing also creates the “special conditions” for exposure when someone works in those spaces while others move in peripheral vision. Culture Bound Syndromes are the result. These mental events are believed to be caused by stresses of each culture.
This phenomenon has the potential to explain many mysterious events thought to be caused by paranormal energies.
First of all, I don’t want to argue about the existence of the phenomenon that he describes. I guess that it’s possible that people encountered some psychological problems because there were no cubicles.
I’ve finished listening to an audio version of this great book by Gary Zukav. Gary Zukav is a spirituality teacher and is author of several books, most known of which is “The Seat of the Soul” (Gary Zukav) from 1989. What I’ve read is an earlier books of his called “Dancing Wu Li Masters: An Overview of the New Physics. This was a really great experience.
The Dancing Wu Li Masters book explains the difficult matters of modern physics such as quantum mechanics and the relativity theories of Albert Einstein in plain english, for non-scientist. I actually could grasp more of the history and implications of quantum physics and relativity theory than in my modern physics classes at university.
Dr. Rupert Sheldrake is one of the leading parapsychology researches living today. He’s a biologist, living in UK, born in 1942. He’s author of many controversial books describing his research and theory. His primary contribution into the world of parapsychology is his theory of morphogenetic fields. The short explanation of morphogenetic fields is (from Wikipedia article) a little hard to understand:
A morphogenetic field (a subset of morphic field) is a hypothetical biological (and potentially social) field that contains the information necessary to shape the exact form of a living thing, as part of its epigenetics, and may also shape its behaviour and coordination with other beings.
Sheldrake also performed lots of different experiments trying to verify the existence of various parapsychology phenomena like telepathy, the sense of being stared at and other. These tests, among other work, help him to verify his theory of the morphogenetic fields. The experiments about the sense of being stared were described more than 20 years ago and there’s a very long running experiment in the Amsterdam Science Museum. This experiment runs since 1985:
Since 1985, the Amsterdam Science Museum has allowed visitors to participate in the am-I-being-stared-at experiment, based on Sheldrake’s work, with one subject and one starer doing 30 trials before vacating their seats for the next couple.
By 2002, more than 18,700 couples had taken part and the results were a staggering 10 to the power of 376 against them being produced by chance. It’s an on-going experiment and the number of subjects who have participated is now over 20,000, making this the largest and longest-running paranormal research project ever conducted.
I’m planning to design several on-line experiments for the testing of some psi abilities. I’m going to build a new part to the mind-energy.net site that will be the engine for this activity.
These will not be interactive experiment or games like some other sites have but they will rather be missions to the visitors of the site, like remote reviewing, remote sensing and similar stuff. The experiments will run for a month, for example, during which time people will submit their results (intuitive guess, so to speak). After the month ends, I will post statistics of the experiment’s results.
I’ve already got some ideas for tests but if you have ideas of your own for a good experiment setup, please write so in the comments, I’ll be glad to incorporate any good idea you have.
Yesterday I went to the Qi Gong lesson for the second time. I’ve missed a week since I was ill last week. The flu got to me as well. If you haven’t read about my first experience with Qi Gong, read it in the post: My first Qi Gong lesson.
This time I think I’ve had some progress. I found that I could control my body better. Since the movements in Qi Gong are done slowly, it is difficult to do them with precision. You have all the time to control the spice, the bottom, the hands and the legs. There’s also some imagination of intentions going on (like head pulling up and the bottom wants to get low),
Update: Now at about two months since the start of the problem here’s a little update:
I have much less painful episodes and when they occur they are not as painful now and usually not long at all but more of a one-time shocks. They are also now somewhat more connected to how I move the leg and I usually experience these one-time shocks now only when putting the leg awkwardly. But otherwise I’m much much better.
I still do the TCM sessions since I believe they are the ones that help me most in the long run. My friend now puts much more attention to the lower back. I’ve also went to a neurologist and she confirmed that Chinese medicine is good. It’s also possible to do physiotherapy instead or some other form of complementary medicine. She also prescribed me Vitamins from group B since they help the healing process of nerve endings. She confirmed that the problem is in the lower spine and she assured me that it will soon pass. But I need to pay more attention to lifting weights. I also started getting more to the gym, mostly to swim, since it should really strengthen my back muscles. It’s very essential to future prevention of this problem.
End of update.
For about 5 weeks now I’ve been having a periodic pain inside the calf of my right leg. At first days I thought it were muscle cramps but after I noticed that the calf muscle was soft at the time of pain I understood it was something else.
It was very painful at first and quite often. My first success in reducing the pain was a treatment by a friend of mine who does Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). I think, the Tui Na (pronounced tweena) massage was the most helping part. But the pain persisted and came back and my family doctor could not find its source. So he prescribed Vitamin E, without explaining much. Later, when I asked he told me that Vitamin helps nerve endings. Since he didn’t know the reason for the pain he sent me to see a blood vessel surgeon. But I had almost 4 weeks before my appointment with him took place. Now, to the more interesting part of the story…
Hello, the following article is published from the permission of Gary Craig, who wrote it.
There’s something scary about drugs that concerns a growing number of physicians and should wobble the knees of every patient on the planet. It’s obvious to any mathematician but somehow has escaped the general scrutiny of the health industry.
It has to do with combining meds.
Ever since I can remember I have been fed the perception that drugs are governmentally evaluated and thus are safe if taken under the guidance of competent physicians. However, even if we accept the presumed safety for the ingestion of one drug, we must ask ourselves how might that safety change if we take multiple drugs?
For safety assurances, proper testing should be done for every drug combination we are advised to take. If we take Prozac and Tylenol, for example, we should be presented with all the possible benefits and consequences before allowing these two foreign substances to mix with the chemicals our bodies already create. Same thing goes for combining Paxil with Viagra or Interferon with Lipitor.
The list of possible problems here is monstrously long because there are a b’zillion drugs and mega b’zillions of combinations. Nonetheless, I’ve never seen or heard of any studies that test any of these combinations … have you?
Thus, if you take two drugs, the odds of their combination having been adequately tested for safety are skimpy at best. But if you take 3 or more drugs the danger possibilities multiply even faster.
Here’s how the mathematics work: If you take 3 drugs then adequate safety testing of the various combinations require 7 separate tests. If you take 4 drugs the combinations require 25 separate tests. If you take 5 drugs it amounts to 121 tests. If you take 10 drugs the number of required safety tests total 362,881.
The conclusion here should be obvious. Namely, there is questionable safety testing if you take 2 drugs and nominal, if any, safety testing if you take 3. Beyond that you are clearly into the land of, “I have no idea what these combinations of drugs will do.”
To me, this tosses our dedicated docs into a tenuous position. They have patients with problems who aren’t willing to exercise, eat right, do EFT for emotional issues or much of anything else to help their own health. Instead, the patients hope the physicians will produce a magic pill (or pills) to make their problems go away.
I have met many patients who are on several drugs and take some drugs to counteract the effects of other drugs. As a non-physician I look at this with a shudder. These folks are being fed chemical cocktails with little or no safety testing behind the combinations. Maybe I need some help with my perceptions here but, to me, they are playing drug roulette.
I don’t know if lawyers have picked up on the simple, but compelling, math here. But I do know that I wouldn’t want to be a doctor in court facing these clear facts.
In the 15+ years I have been involved in the health field, I have had the good fortune to count many physicians as my personal friends. With few exceptions, they agree that it is our lifestyles, diets and emotional stresses that cause most of our health problems … and … the vast majority of these problems would vanish if people would live common sense lives. Yet patients repeatedly abuse their bodies and ask for more and more “miracle drugs” as the convenient solution. I don’t envy the docs at all as I often hear them complain that this is a highway to NobodyWinsVille.
Maybe what we really need are good salespeople to persuade folks to take care of themselves. I suspect that, if truly persuasive, they would do more good than the ocean of drugs at our disposal.

You must have heard about the benefits of Omega-3 fat. If not, here’s a short introduction:
A Purdue University study has showed that kids low in Omega-3 essential fatty acids are significantly more likely to be hyperactive, have learning disorders, and to display behavioral problems. Omega-3 deficiencies have also been tied to many conditions, including the following: dyslexia, violence, depression, memory problems, weight gain, cancer, heart disease, eczema, allergies, inflammatory diseases, arthritis, diabetes.
Over 2,000 scientific studies have demonstrated the wide range of problems associated with Omega-3 deficiencies. The American diet is almost devoid of Omega 3’s, except for certain types of fish. In fact, researchers believe that about 60% of Americans are deficient in Omega-3 fatty acids, and about 20% have so little that test methods cannot even detect any in their blood. 74-9)
So, it seems that almost anyone who doesn’t take a close look at his diet needs to consider getting more omega-3 into his body. It is possible to get omega-3 through food supplements.
One such source is Omax3, a product of Cenestra Health. Omax3™ was specially developed by physicians and scientists from the Yale University School of Medicine to provide an ultra-pure and optimally balanced Omega-3 supplement.
Omax3 is 100% natural and provides an optimal balance of EPA and DHA (the two key health-promoting Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids). The development of Omax3 comes from the rapidly growing evidence showing the overall health benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids, and more specifically, the importance of achieving an optimal balance of EPA and DHA in the diet.
The pricing of Omax3 is competitive with prices per bottle for orders in the amount of 1 to 6 bottles of about $35 or about $32 for orders of more than bottles. Each box of Omax3 contains a full month supply of 60 Softgels, delivering a total of 1500mg of Omega-3 per serving. International orders are accepted.

It has been some time now that I wanted to start learning Qi Gong. Fortunately, two friends of mind were already going to a Qi Gong group, so I decided to join them. I’m not sure how much can be deducted from one lesson but here how it went and some of my impressions:
The lesson was divided into 4 parts:
1. Warm up. Some warm up and stretching exercises.
2. Biggest part of the lesson was doing some standing positions and more motions. Generally, the standing positions are used to gather energy. They are also the hardest part of Qi Gong since the longer you stand, the better. It’s also important to stay correctly, and the instructor was correcting us. Of course, there’s more than just standing correctly in order to see the benefits. The motions were very slow and required concentration on moving the body without strain. They are not difficult physically, but they are hard to do correctly and without strain. The real benefit of the motions should be the control over the movement of the Chi in the body but that takes lots of practice. In the beginning I need to concentrate more on the psyshical aspect of the movements.
3. Another large part of the lesson was devoted solely to standing positions. This time however, the group was divided into 2 parts: beginners and the more advanced. As beginners we stood less time in each position (only about 5 monutes per position, I guess). The more advanced part of the class was standing in each position about 10 or more minutes. I understood that sometimes they stand for 20 minutes. I’ve heard that ultimately one should be able to stand in one position about 45 minutes.
Standing is difficult in two aspects: physical and mental. It’s hard physically since, until you know to how to them properly, it strains both the legs (since the positions are done a little like “sitting” in the air – with legs bent). The positions are also difficult to the hands since you nede to hold them in the air in some position. Standing positions can also raise a mental difficulty since you need to cope both with your thoughts, the physical pain and possible some other things. Somehow, I didn’t feel any mental pressure as I was expected, by my friends and by the instructor, who inquired about it after the class. Perhaps it’s because I’m accustomed to doing some meditation so I’m not stressed while doing “nothing”, so to speak.
4. Relaxation. The last past was some relaxation and stretching to let the body and mind to relax and the energy to gather and to flow.
