Meditation and Prayer to Heal the World
Research compilation by Rev. Kat Carroll
While meditation is a simple and wonderful tool you can use to calm yourself. It also has a calming effect on those around you. Meditation causes positive changes within your body & mind, and aids in spiritual growth. Just 20 minutes a day is enough to create lasting inner change.
Meditation is a great tool for stress reduction and is now incorporated as a practice for law enforcement, health care workers and even the military. When mindfulness and meditation are used in school, students who practice were better able to concentrate which improved attendance, and, test scores and IQ increased! It’s being used on college campuses around the world.
Studies conducted by Michael Mitchel showed that meditation not only lowers blood pressure but also can improve your immune system by turning off the stress hormones, cortisol and adrenaline. This allows your entire nervous system to relax for better sleep and tissue repair. People who meditate perform better under stress and recover faster after stressful situations. This is important for front line workers and medical practitioners.
Group Meditation & Global Consciousness
The Maharishi Effect establishes the principle that individual consciousness affects collective consciousness (that’s all of us as a collective). Per Wikipedia, “Nearly 50 scientific research studies conducted over the past 25 years verify the unique effect and wide–ranging benefits to the nation produced by the Maharishi Effect.”
In 1974 it was discovered that when the number of people in meditation reached a certain percentage of the population, crime rates would fall, and the effect was lasting. This indicated a return to order and harmony in the city. A small number of people can have a large impact on society. The Square Root of 1% of the given population in meditation is all that is required to cause a positive effect. This phenomenon of rising coherence in the collective consciousness of society was dubbed “The Maharishi Effect” in honor of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. He predicted this effect as early as 1960. In 1978 his theory was tested in the Global Ideal Society Campaign demonstrating a drop in crime rates in 108 countries during mass meditation.
Princeton University observed that Group Consciousness has physical effects on the world during large–scale events.
For the first time in scientific history researchers discovered that group consciousness elicits changes in the physical world around us. Researchers from Princeton University’s PEAR Laboratory (Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research) discovered “The power of thought is not just ideological, it manifests physically. Cohesion between individuals ramps up this power,” writes the study’s authors.
Random Number Generators measure Global Consciousness on 9/11/01
Three hours before the 9/11 event, a computer called a Random Event Generator at Princeton University predicted a cataclysmic event was about to unfold. The studies conducted during and after the events of 9/11 suggest a certain amount of precognition exists in the population. Why would the readings increase before the planes left the ground and prior to the first plane striking a building?
Princeton’s Global Consciousness Projectand The Heart Math Institute Global Coherence Researchuse random number generators (RNGs) to measure changes in collective consciousness also known as Global Coherence. RNGs have been placed in locations around the world to measure these changes in world consciousness. The charts below show the change in the data as the news of highjacked planes used to attack key targets spread around the world on September 11.
Chart 1 shows the peak in activity as the news of the event was broadcast. (Charts are courtesy of Princeton’s Noosphere Global Consciousness Project.)
Equally important was the data shown in chart 2 from Sept. 14, after the world began silent prayer and meditation. The chart shows a return to coherency during the time of mass meditation and prayer. To quote a line from the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind, “This is important. This means something”!
Harnessing the power of prayer in this and other troubled times
Prayer works! There is scientific evidence to support the power of prayer. In 1944, Patten used prayer to turn the tide of WWII by praying for a change in the weather. Here is another of many stories about harnessing the power of prayer in a crisis. Power of Prayer – Apollo 13 story – April 1970
I experienced this phenomenon with a friend in New York as we developed a working psychic connection from nearly 3,000 miles apart. I had been teaching him about remote viewing (the practice of seeking impressions about a distant or unseen target, using extrasensory perception) and conducting psychic experiments. He was able to consistently pick up on what I was viewing with no hints or prompting. During that time, I began waking at 3 am or picking up my phone without knowing why just seconds before receiving a text or image from him (he often forgot the 3-hour time difference).
There is no doubt that we are all connected to a stream of consciousness, both giving and receiving subtle information. With that in mind, what you contribute to this stream of consciousness is important and I urge you to be mindful of your words and thoughts. Spend time in meditation each day to create feelings of love, gratitude, appreciation, and compassion so others will experience them too.
Can you imagine what might happen if a majority of humanity had the same goal of sending positive, loving thoughts to the world by feeling and visualizing health, peace, and prosperity during meditation? A wave of compassionate thinking could spark a change in global consciousness and shift the population toward a more positive and cooperative timeline.
Studies by Masaru Emoto showed how our words, thoughts and intentions have a profound effect on water (Our bodies are made mostly of water!). Science has proven the interconnectedness or quantum entanglement that happens between photons. Multiple studies conducted by Dean Radin of IONS, Rupert Sheldrake PhD Parapsychology, Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research(PEAR) and others have noted this with people, especially when they are focused on each other. A Princeton study observed that group consciousness has physical effects on the world During Large-Scale Events. This is a conscious field that exists and interacts with ALL things on Earth as was discovered by Dr. Cleve Backster. It also exists throughout the universe, and we are all intricately linked or entangled.
Now you know the many benefits of meditation and how powerful our words, thoughts and intentions are. You also understand that the thoughts we generate effect the world around us, especially when amplified by groups of people meditating or praying together for a specific cause. I hope you will use this knowledge to help shape the world you wish to live in. You are a co-creator in the manifestation of our reality. Let us use the technology of prayer and meditation as tools to change humanity’s destiny by working cooperatively and collectively to manifest a beautiful new world of peace, prosperity, health, and abundance – A new Golden Age of Gaia.
