Specifically, what is the best meditation to build neurons or reduce anxiety but WON’T make you too relaxed and want to go to sleep. Links would be great. Sorry! I should have put stars around the word “Meditation”. I didn’t want anyone to think “medication”. Sorry about the confusion.
I notice a certain personality type falls into occult studies (normally people with mental/emotional/social disorders) and was wondering about the frequency. Also, what causes the mentally imbalanced to gravitate toward ideas like those presented by the occult? @Peacelove: this isn’t a question about myself. If you want to preach go to R&S. I’m asking a question regarding science, not faith. @Mythical: I’m not Christian, I’m a Scientific Pantheist.
in other cultures where shamanism is practiced altered states of consciousness is seen as a sort of gift where the person has a gift to unlock his unconscious, then eventually the collective conscious and even, in some cultures, alternate spiritual realms. Do you think this is all rubbish. It seems Western medicine does. I can hardly believe that we know everything there is to know about psychotic or trance-like or meditative states. It seems some of these so-called primitive cultures weren’t all that primitive after all.
