Premonitions – Knowing the Future Can Shape Our Lives

Thursday, July 16th, 2009

There’s nothing we want to know more than what’s going to happen next. You can know. And in fact, you already do. Open this book and find out how and why. Larry Dossey, the doctor – and bestselling author – who first demonstrated the healing effects of prayer, now offers an unprecedented look at the science of premonitions.

A dream prompts a mother to remove her baby from his crib an hour before a chandelier falls and smashes it. More than a dozen people are no-shows for choir practice for the first time ever at the moment their church explodes.

Ideas Are The Easy Part – What Do You Need For Innovation?

Saturday, June 14th, 2008

Ideas, including good ones, come naturally to human beings. As Robert Tucker said: “Anyone who has ever taken a shower has had a good idea.” But good ideas are only the starting point for innovation.

No less an authority than Joseph Schumpeter put it this way: “to carry any improvement into effect is a task entirely different from the inventing of it, and a task, moreover, requiring entirely different kinds of aptitudes.” In other words, it takes work to turn good ideas into something helpful and profitable.

Get Ideas from Everywhere
Human beings naturally have good ideas. They’ll share them with you if you let them. But if you shoot down or ridicule every new idea you hear, people will stop sharing ideas with you.

Limitless Potential – The Art and Science of Visualization

Friday, December 28th, 2007

People have been using meditation and visualization techniques for centuries, yet no one really knows exactly how or why the procedures work. But that’s all changing. The scientific reasons behind this metaphysical phenomenon are being revealed with our growing understanding of the subatomic world of quantum physics.

Infinitesimally smaller than the miniature world of atoms, subatomic entities like electrons, protons, and a multitude of other bodies in the quantum make up the essence of the physical universe.

While most of us would assume that tiny particles inside atoms are inanimate objects oblivious to our existence, a fundamental tenet of quantum physics is that we cannot observe the subatomic world without disturbing it. In other words, subatomic particles actually respond to the people watching them.
