Healers heal themselves, they don’t heal others. We can share our work with others though so they can be about taking care of themselves also. Healers are authentic, living examples of how you can step out of your subconscious imprinting from parents, family, and provincial upbringing to create your conscious mind and live a truly free life of your choosing. We also know how to access the information in our unconscious mind through the dream state. The unconscious mind transcends intellect, brings forward intuition and allows it to MANIFEST in physical! The information in the dream state, where there is no thinking, is available to everyone.
I couldn’t believe I found this when I was googling the history of Intuition in the Scientific Method about two weeks ago. The paper was typewritten in 1963, so that’s what I had to work from. I loved Dr. Smith’s physics and philosophy thought process on this taboo subject. But it’s not that taboo anymore, at least not in psychology.
Intuition is still talked about in hushed tones by hardcore, axiomatic, scientific method types. It’s a little soft right? No, it’s not and Dr. Smith came to that conclusion. I’m hoping the information here and on this website will broaden the approach and attitudes toward cooperation between Axiomatics, the Scientific Method, and Axiology. It’s all science and should all be considered! It’s time for a holistic scientific method that’s just as rational or more rational than what science has given us so far. Let’s face it, how rational was the building and use of an atomic bomb? Has that helped the world? Why did sixty million people have to die in WWII for us to realize that war is counter-intuitive? All militarism is counter-intuitive, so let’s apply some INTUITION!
Dr.Smith worked on the Manhattan Project with James Van Allen, the man who discovered the radiation belts surrounding the earth. He was a heavyweight. The Van Allen probes are still active and I will be posting some of that information on here as well. It’s fascinating stuff. You never knew astrophysics could hold your attention until you follow the radiation belts and learn about them! Personally, I’m a space junky.
The conclusion in this booklet is groundbreaking. Dr. Smith wrote this paper for an Army conference so he probably thought no one would see it or read it. I did. And I hope you will too.
I’ve included a glossary of terms to help you through it.
Don’t those look yummy! I have mine with a really good espresso or strong dark coffee. Here’s my Grandma’s recipe.
1 cup of “Oleo” (It’s margarine but she called it butter. I use real butter)
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 bag of chocolate chips.
Baking and cooking are chemistry, so women have been navigating science in the home for as long as the species has been around. Almost everything we’ve done in keeping the nest is science and multitasking. Nor did we need a 3D printer or AI (Artificial Intelligence) to pretend like we could copy life. We make life automatically in our bodies. We really do need to take credit for how we kick it in so many ways.
Speaking for myself, as a young, fertile, horny woman, the main reason I didn’t take credit, is that I knew that if I was a threat to a man, better at something or smarter than him, I’d never have sex again. If you’re too competent, too articulate, too assertive, and have too high of an IQ and are cute, you won’t have much sex because you’re too hard to please. Last I checked, guys hate that the most. I can’t tell you how many women and gay men warned me about that. Women want sex (and babies) more than anything in the world and that’s what the men are for. Let’s admit it.
Why wouldn’t we admit that? Slut-shaming? Meaning the assumption is that a woman who admits that her body is on automatic pilot for sex is also a slut. That’s absolutely not true. Not if she picks a partner she is compatible with and has at it instead of with a hundred men which was the situation in matriarchy.
During matriarchy, women, and children lived together and the men just came in for a conjugal visit and left. Thus, they are hardwired to be with as many, and as much of a variety of women as possible following their old brain. There is nothing new about the hook-up. That’s how the dominant women wanted it! That era is over and was bad for everybody; women, children, and especially men. The children never knew their fathers! That’s matriarchy’s theme. It’s still hanging around in some cultures today.
Thus, the ascendancy of patriarchy so the men could live with a woman and gain very valuable human communication skills and learn how to love through having his own child. That benefits the child as well and helps the human brain form in a different way. Children need to know their father. We’re still working on that and it’s coming along.
Back to the cookies, men have picked up all of women’s natural science skills too and gained on it! Many men are creative chefs, are in the kitchen and love to cook and bake. I’m happy about that as I really don’t enjoy being in the kitchen anymore. And for ambitious, impatient women, sometimes the male partner makes a better parent. He’s more entertaining and more patient with his child while mom goes out and leads. That’s pretty common now too, even though her pay is 25% less than a male who does the same job, just because she’s a woman. Sexism is alive and well when it comes to money.
But it isn’t all just Mom baking cookies anymore and that’s a good thing.
Why do we want to be right all the time?
Why do I want to be right most of the time?
Why do I glee over saying, “See, I was right!”
Because we doubt ourselves too much so we are reassuring ourselves by saying it.
Because others who doubt themselves doubt us and say it!
Because others project their experience of being shunned for being or doing something that was wrong, onto us.
Because “if you make a mistake, you are forgiven”, isn’t widely practiced.
So, now I try to catch myself and say, “Lisa, do what you feel, study what you feel, write what you feel and use the best skill you’ve got. That’s all you can do.” I’ve got a lot of skill and I’ve paid the piper so I have no reason to doubt myself. Whether anyone will listen and understand, I don’t know.
And now, when someone criticizes me harshly when I meant absolutely no harm and never do, I know that they have not forgiven themselves for being wrong or someone else has not forgiven them for being wrong or vice versa.
It closes the heart.
Wow, the feeling of being around someone with a closed heart and lots of conditions, or an open heart and few conditions, is night and day.

New research sheds light on how and why we remember dreams–and what purpose they are likely to serve- By Sander van der Linden on July 26, 2011
- “One prominent neurobiological theory of dreaming is the “activation-synthesis hypothesis,” which states that dreams don’t actually mean anything: they are merely electrical brain impulses that pull random thoughts and imagery from our memories.”
I bet this explanation is popular in a cynical, the-universe-is-only-a-computer kind of way. I’m not hanging with this one simply because it hasn’t been my experience. My dreams, throughout my life, have LITERALLY given me archetypes or specific information regarding where to look, who to go to, or what was going to happen. My dreams have literally been A MAP to what appears to be dense on this world. The analogy could be, earth as Disneyland and my dreams are the maps they give you so you don’t get lost in the carnival. Don’t leave home without it.
2. “…evolutionary psychologists have theorized that dreaming really does serve a purpose. In particular, the “threat simulation theory” suggests that dreaming should be seen as an ancient biological defense mechanism that provided an evolutionary advantage because of its capacity to repeatedly simulate potential threatening events – enhancing the neuro-cognitive mechanisms required for efficient threat perception and avoidance.”
Here is another fun one. Defense, fear, threat enhances your brain function. Negativity…enhances your brain function? Not. I’m fairly sure there is a big study on Buddhist Monks in meditation, perfectly happy and peaceful that proved their higher brain waves and parts of the brain left lying there were awakened by being calm, content, and happy. So, positivity and being kind to others enhances your brain function. That’s why haters are always nuts. No love.
3. “Those participants who exhibited more low-frequency theta waves in the frontal lobes were also more likely to remember their dreams. This finding is interesting because the increased frontal theta activity the researchers observed looks just like the successful encoding and retrieval of autobiographical memories seen while we are awake. That is, it is the same electrical oscillations in the frontal cortex that make the recollection of episodic memories (e.g., things that happened to you) possible. Thus, these findings suggest that the neurophysiological mechanisms that we employ while dreaming (and recalling dreams) are the same as when we construct and retrieve memories while we are awake.
Well, your memory is your memory, whether awake or asleep. You store memories in the same place. That’s not too earthshattering. Memories are real. It doesn’t matter when or where they take place. Ask anyone. They will tell you that they had a dream that they’ll remember forever, just like they’ll remember the feeling at their wedding, the birth of their baby, or their first kiss. My dreams are no less real, and maybe more real than my waking life.
If you look at the summation at the end of this article, I find it erroneous as it talks about stripping away emotions. None of my dreams have done that. They’ve deepened or exposed my emotions to use as information and I encourage you to do that as well. Here is an example of needing the other half of the scientific method; introspection and intuitional controls.
Neuroscience tends to objectify the mind by examining the brain. The brain and the mind are two different levels of manifestation. There can be no argument about the true significance of dreams once you start retrieving information from them that can be used with people and events in your daily life because those same people and events are shown to you in a different way in your dream, shining a bright light from the universe on them. The bridge that is built is axiomatic. You just have to listen.
The definition of an axiom is a self-evident truth that requires no proof. When someone says to you, “the sky is blue, the grass is green and there is light from the sun every day,” that is axiomatic. Speaking for myself, as a female, that is most of what I see and experience in my life. It’s common sense that comes through the body’s senses. I still love it and find mysterious levels but I have no desire to take an axiomatic or empirical truth and put it in a lab. It usually turns out to be synchronicity, but that is another intuitive subject.
It is first classified as instinct through the ancient subconscious mind and climbs the ladder to intuition from the unconscious mind that comes through in dreams. That has happened to me all of my life. An experience I’ve had has gone from instinct to intuition because of a dream or dreams I’ve had. It’s like breathing for me.
I hope it does for you too. It makes life more enjoyable and understandable.
“The unconscious mind is not some black hole of unacceptable impulses waiting to trip you up, but it can be the source of hidden beliefs, fears, and attitudes that interfere with everyday life.”
It is also the source of vast wisdom that can aid you in expanding your conscious mind and help bridge the world of sleep and awake time if you can train yourself to remember your dreams. I will be posting videos on that. I’ve been doing it for years.
I believe that, even though women have a biological brain preponderance of intuition, plenty of men do too. Plenty of women are naturally good at STEM;(science, technology, engineering, math). I loved my chemistry set when I was eight. Most men are not as naturally tuned into their bodies as women are. Again, this is not to disparage, it’s evolution.
I want peace, not gender war.
My wish is simple; that women do not expect men to be like women and that men do not expect women to be like men. We are who we are and sometimes it’s a benefit for us to partner and live together, given enough space…sometimes.
It’s Biology, Not Socialization
“At the time, it seemed clear to me that any between-sex differences in thinking abilities were due to socialization practices, artifacts and mistakes in the research, and bias and prejudice. … After reviewing a pile of journal articles that stood several feet high and numerous books and book chapters that dwarfed the stack of journal articles … I changed my mind.”
Why? There was too much data pointing to the biological basis of sex-based cognitive differences to ignore, Halpern says.”
“Halpern and others have cataloged plenty of human behavioral differences. “These findings have all been replicated,” she says. Women excel in several measures of verbal ability — pretty much all of them, except for verbal analogies. Women’s reading comprehension and writing ability consistently exceed that of men, on average. They outperform men in tests of fine-motor coordination and perceptual speed. They’re more adept at retrieving information from long-term memory.”
I am a female and all of that is the case for me. Is it for you? In this area particularly, we need to be patient with each other as men and women. Men are seriously behind us in communication and verbalization skills which women need SO much with a partner. We need to be able to talk to each other. Men can’t take it after awhile. They just need our bodies, is what I’ve noticed. That can be hard on women who need talking, bonding, and emotion to be turned on. Men only need that some. Some don’t need it at all which is a real problem. But curiously, I’ve heard more men say, when looking for a partner, “I just need to be able to talk to her.” That’s a good thing.
“Men, on average, can more easily juggle items in working memory. They have superior visual-spatial skills: They’re better at visualizing what happens when a complicated two- or three-dimensional shape is rotated in space, at correctly determining angles from the horizontal, at tracking moving objects and at aiming projectiles.
Well, of course, they’re better at aiming projectiles, come on!
Navigation studies in both humans and rats show that females of both species tend to rely on landmarks, while males more typically rely on “dead reckoning”: calculating one’s position by estimating the direction and distance traveled rather than using landmarks.”
It’s Important for Women to NOT Expect Men to Be Like Women. It’s Important for Men to NOT Expect Women to Be Like Men.
“New technologies have generated a growing pile of evidence that there are inherent differences in how men’s and women’s brains are wired and how they work.”
So, here’s to peace and bonding.
This is a spider web spun in the bush by my front porch. Look at the geometry of the web. Did the spider use its natural instinct, an ancient type of intuition on automatic pilot to spin it, or did he have to learn it in school and analyze the means of making the web using science?
