Carol, I'm pretty sure it was HeartMath research that Lipton was talking about but don't remember if they duplicated it. Their website might have more info. A LOT of research is cited in the documentary, a lot of teachers interviewed. And my memory is faulty. Anyway, because of my interest in EFT I've heard of Eden's book. Though having written that, I realize that maybe EFT tapping could be considered a bit of a bridge between energy work and acupuncture which has a longer tradition.
I have 20 notebooks from having been in a women's writing group for periods of time. I had begun transferring them to my computer. But the temptation to edit comes up and so they remain in paper form for now. And yes, it is wonderful to read some of the previous writing. Thanks, I really like the Audubon quote and how you'd change it. You got me thinking about what it means to experience something. So many levels of experiencing can be present in a moment: the sensory for sure, but also any memories the sensory might be evoking on either the mental or energetic level. See my PS below for an example of this. For sure it's a gift to be human. PS to Steve and Carol: for some reason your comments about Indian ball brought to mind cricket a game which I've only seen in movies: Becoming Jane and Bend It Like Beckham. I've heard that one game of cricket can go on for hours and hours! ________________________________ From: Carol <jchwe...@gmail.com> To: FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com Sent: Friday, April 12, 2013 9:26 AM Subject: [FairfieldLife] Re: NCAA Men's Basketball Championship Tonight! Seventhray...it is "Indian Ball." I don't recall ever learning about that. Thank you. Share...fascinating about cellular memory/response and the skin cells. Do you know if this experiment was duplicated? I wonder if any responses are dependent on other factors such as individual's constitution or how much time the cells are detached from the body. This brings to mind Donna Eden's book on "Energy Medicine" and one of her accounts regarding an amputated finger. I'd have to look up the details now, but it seems their was communication between the finger and the hand from which it was amputated. I know energy medicine is controversial and some (most?) scientists tout it as pseudo science. One day maybe we will have the mechanisms for more reliable hard data. Regardless, once a person experiences something, it's difficult for one to deny that experience and remain stable. I mean, to deny it can produce a cognitive dissonance which can eventually be detrimental to one's well being. I think of one of Audubon's quotes: When the bird and the book disagree, always believe the bird. [But I'd take out the word "always". ;) ] I posted in another FFL thread about Paul Pearsall. I think I posted about his interviews with organ transplant patients and the cellular memory transferred to the patient. Patients (at least at the time the book was written) could not know who their donors were for one year; yet, the patients had picked up words and/or memories and/or certain behaviors and tastes that the patient didn't have previous to receiving their new organ. Come to learn a year later, that those changes coincided with their donors' memories/tastes/words/etc. Life sure is complex and rich. I was updating my poetry archive last night. It was fun reading through poems I've penned in the last 4 years. One piece reminded me of how so much life surrounds us every moment of every day; life is everywhere. And the seeds of life...such an abundance of seeds. ************ --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, "seventhray27" <steve.sundur@...> wrote: > > I think it's what we used to call "Indian Ball" > > http://www.stlmag.com/St-Louis-Magazine/July-2008/What-the-Is-Indian-Ball/ > > > --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, Share Long <sharelong60@> wrote: > > > > Hi Carol, I always played slow pitch so I doubt I could even hit one of > > those fast pitches!Â I don't know what a rollie bat is but my Grandad > > played sandlot baseball so I guess it's in my genes.Â Speaking of which, > > the name of the Bruce Lipton movie is also Biology of Belief.Â The public > > library showed it here a few years ago.Â I remember some research about > > putting a few skin cells from a person in a petrie dish.Â When that person > > heard their spouse say I love you, even in the next room, their skin cells > > changed.Â Very cool stuff.Â Anyway, here's a question:Â if we were to > > find some cells of Copernicus, could we say I love you to them and would > > that benefit Copernicus?Â Another kind of time travel maybe.Â > > > > > > > > > > ________________________________ > > From: Carol <jchwelch@> > > To: FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com > > Sent: Thursday, April 11, 2013 9:14 PM > > Subject: [FairfieldLife] Re: NCAA Men's Basketball Championship Tonight! > > > > > > > > Â > > Women's softball pitchers are fun to watch. > > > > I never played softball much except in a few sandlot games.
