The results are in from the most recent large-scale Intention Heals experiments made possible by Adam McLeod (B.Sc. First Class Honors in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry), author of DreamHealer.
The main purpose of these projects was to measure the effect of the group’s intention on one individual’s brain waves. Scientific research continues to show that your intentions can influence your health and the health of those around you.
The first Global Intention Heals Project on November 8th, 2009 focused on the EEG data obtained when a large number of people focused their intentions on one individual. This was a global project where more than 10,000 people focused their intentions using a specific DreamHealer visualization on one individual (Christine). Christine had no awareness as to when the participants would send their intentions. The results from this project were outstanding. A Quantitative EEG analysis easily identified a significant change in her brain wave patterns at the exact time the intentions were sent. Christine has noticed many improvements in her health since participating in this experiment.
With all the excitement from the first project, DreamHealer decided to setup a second project with tighter scientific controls in place. We got advice from several well-known scientists about how to refine this second project. Rather than having people around the world participating, it was felt that the data would be more meaningful if we could identify precise randomized intention intervals from one group. On May 30, 2010 this controlled experiment was carried out with 900 participants from an Intention Heals workshop in Vancouver. Two different 5-minute intention intervals were randomly selected for analysis in this double blind experiment.
Before any analysis of the data was done, Adam wrote notes about the experiment from his perspective. “The first interval was not as organized as I had hoped. The interval started on time (1:05 PM) but it likely took some time for the group to relax and focus after lunch.” With regards to the second interval he wrote, “The second interval was more precise and I feel that the group was much more focused here. (time 1:25 PM)”
The EEG data from the experiment mirrors these observations. Researchers were easily able to identify the second intention interval that took place at 1:25 PM. This is significant because even the scientists collecting and analyzing this data were unaware of the intention intervals, as this was a double blind study.
This data builds on the data from the first project, which shows that collectively intentions influence biology. The woman who was analyzed in this project has a renal disorder. Her well-being and renal markers have also improved since this project. We plan to use the data obtained from these experiments to publish a peer-reviewed study. It is one step closer towards building a coherent theory on how energy healing influences physiology.
Both the experimenters and the subject whose EEG was recorded, were blind to the commencement of two, five minute intention intervals offered some time in a total of forty-five minutes of continuous EEG recording. The timing of the two intention intervals was determined at a different location than the experimenters by random selection immediately prior to the commencement of the experiment.
“This is a very notable EEG finding in the context of an intention experiment and particularly one involving lightning imagery, given that: (1) Approximately 7.81 Hz corresponds with what is understood to be the rate of vibration of the electromagnetic field thrust upward from the earth.” – Dr. Sheldon Lewkis. This frequency and its harmonics are referred to as the Schumann resonances; the harmonics believed to be induced in the earth’s upper atmosphere by lightning strikes. (2) The Schumann resonances do not normally appear in the resting state EEG (i.e., the state of the subject in this study); the resting state EEG is normally non-harmonic. (3) Dominant activity at approximately 7.8 Hz has been reported to be associated with the EEG of psychically gifted individuals when engaged in activity of that nature. (4) Other EEG studies also inclusive of bi-spectral analysis have in the past revealed the Schumann resonances in association with remote healing and remote intention.
“This interesting change is the appearance of Schumann resonances-- a feature that is not normally considered to be an aspect of the resting state EEG (i.e., the state of the subject during recording in this study).” – Dr. Sheldon Lewkis. Previous studies point to some association of this feature or aspects of it with remote healing and the EEGs of individuals engaged in psychic activity. It is also associated with the earth’s own electromagnetic vibration signature, with lightning strikes playing a role in the generation of the harmonics. We did not identify any notable change in EEG features during one of the intention intervals offered by the participants, that being the first one. Prior to the analysis of data, Adam said he felt that the group was not ready or focused for the sending of intention during the first interval.
Both experiments clearly show that brainwaves of one person are altered by the intentions sent from another. Our physiology is affected not only by our own thoughts, but by others sending specific intentions to us.
The Intention Heals Project is unveiling a global community of healing, where the healers and the healees interact through the sending and receiving of intentions. The research from this project reinforces the scientific framework to maximize physical outcomes through the power of our own, harnessed focused intentions.
