Thank you, Master Octagon. The switch, though small, feels quite ceremonial in a good way.

May the Force guide us all.

His name keeps coming up this year, so today I went and picked up "The Wim Hof Method" at Barnes & Noble. :)

Here's an example of someone using the Force to heal.

Wim Hof Has The Cure To All Diseases
“I do not fear death, I fear not to live fully. If I live fully I am not into death.” -- Wim Hof

Wim Hof, a man from the Netherlands, has recently brought to light a meditation technique that he claims gives humans control over normally autonomous systems in the body. Some of Hof’s accomplishments include: climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in his shorts in two days, climbing to 6.7 kilometers altitude at Mount Everest wearing nothing but shorts and shoes, running a marathon in the arctic circle in Finland wearing nothing but shorts, and holding the world record for being completely submerged in an ice bath while maintaining a constant core body temperature. He accredits all of his accomplishment to his style of meditation, breathing techniques, and training.

Legends have spoken about people who have been able to do miracles such as these since biblical times, so why is Hof so special? Hof is unique because he has brought his methods to doctors and researchers asking them to study him and he teaches people to accomplish what he can. Hof claims that anyone can accomplish what he has with the right training. So how has he proved his methods?

Hof went to a hospital and claimed that, after being injected with a short term neurotoxin, he could pass the toxin through his system without experiencing any symptoms. A person without his training and knowledge would experience terrible fever, sweats, aches, and several flu like symptoms, however Hof passed the toxin with none. He then trained several followers of his for one month and had them go through the same test to make sure that he was not anything special and they passed in the same manner. Hof and his disciples fended off the disease without prompting an excessive immune response by secreting an extremely high amount of adrenaline into their bloodstream, otherwise known as the fight or flight response. Hof proved that a system previously thought to be autonomous can be controlled by the human mind. Hof and his disciples have control over their heart rate and certain hormone secretion to the point where they can suppress an immune response. Doctors claimed that Hof’s adrenaline levels were higher than a person who goes sky-diving for the first time.

Hof’s methods are proprietary and sold in a variety of packages, but as a whole they are very simple. Contrast showers to stimulate your circulatory systems, special breathing techniques that force the body to hyperventilate, and extreme concentration lead to ultimate fitness. Hof also claims that believing in what you are doing is the only way to achieve it.

The "take home" message from Wim Hof is that the human body is capable of much more than we give it credit for. If we can teach ourselves to control our immune response systems then we can prevent disease, swelling, and several other health concerns. Also, Wim teaches that we should never set limits on ourselves, but always explore new things that we can be potentially be great at. If you ever find yourself plateauing in a sport, school, job, or anything in life, try to switch your routine up. Maybe meditate, maybe exercise, or maybe hike Mt. Everest in your shorts like Wim Hof did.

"It is already 2 years that have passed since Itigelov’s exhumation. His body is now kept open air, without any temperature or humidity regimes, in contact with other people. Nobody can explain how it is possible that Itigelov´s body resist to external side effects."

I can explain it. It is possible for ones body, mind, and spirit to be filled with the Living Force to such a degree that it's energies continue to vibrate life and healing to ones body even after the spirit has moved on.

Such abilities are available to all who would take the time to believe and practice them. I've read other articles of people, mostly monks, who's bodies did not decay after they crossed over.

The body of Hambo Lama Itigelov was exhumated on September 10 th, 2002 on the territory of cemetery not far away from the city of Ulan Ude (Russian Federation). After he died his body was buried in 1927. Exhumation was performed in presence of relatives, officials, and experts”.

This info appeared in Russian mass media as regards buried Buryat Lama who was exhumed from the ground in the beginning of the 21 st century. The grave consisted of wooden box and Buddhist lama was sitting inside of it in ‘lotus’ pose. His body looked like it was mummified, however the opposite is true. His muscles and skin was soft, folding joints. Hambo Lama was clad in silk clothes and wrapped in fabric of same material.

Hambo Lama Itigelov is a real person who is well known in Russian history. He was studying in Anninsky Datsan – Buddhist University in Buryatia, now a days we could find just ruins there. He gained degrees in medicine and philosophy (on the nature of emptiness), plus he is regarded as an author of an encyclopedia of pharmacology.

Itigelov became a Hambo Lama (the head of Buddhist church in Russia) in 1911. From 1913 till 1917 he participated in social events of the Tsar. On 19 th of March 1917 he was invited to 300-year anniversary of Romanov’s house, opened the first Buddhist temple in St. Petersburg. During this special occasion Nikolai II gave him St. Stanislav award.

Itigelov created the organization called “Buryat brothers” during the First World War. In that hard time of war he tried help the army with money, meals, clothes, medicaments, etc. He got many awards, concrete St. Anna award for built a set of hospitals, where was lama doctors helping wounded soldiers.

Despite the fact that Itigelov never let Russia he advised the Buddhist monks to leave Russia in 1926. The reason was ‘the red teaching was coming’. When he felt ready to die, he told lamas to begin meditation. However the Lamas refused to perform this meditation because Itigelov was still alive. When Itigelov began to meditate by himself, lamas joined. Then he died. It happened in 1927, when he was 75 years old.

The reason why they buried him in the cedar box in traditional cemetery in “lotus” position was his testament. He also requested other monks to exhume him after a few years. (Which means that he knew his body would be preserved). So, Buddhist monks done it in 1955 and in 1973 again, but they were too scared of communist regime, which refused any religion in society, to tell anybody. Therefore, the body was finally exhumed and transferred to Ivolginsky Datsan in 2002. Here, in a residence of today’s Hambo Lama, his body was closely examined by monks, scientists and pathologists. In official statement the experts agreed that body is very well preserved, without any signs of decay. Whole muscles and inner tissue, soft joints and skin stayed same. They couldn’t find any explanation how is possible that the body is preserved even if body wasn’t mummified or embalmed.

It is already 2 years that have passed since Itigelov’s exhumation. His body is now kept open air, without any temperature or humidity regimes, in contact with other people. Nobody can explain how it is possible that Itigelov´s body resist to external side effects.

This is the ONLY KNOWN AND CONFIRMED CASE OF IMPERISHABLE BODY worldwide. Embalming and mummifying is well known in total different parts of the world – Chile (Chinchorro), Egypt mummies, Christian Saints, communist leaders and others. Some bodies were found in permafrost, however when they contacted with oxygen atmosphere they perished in next a few hours.

We can find descriptions of such things in Buddhist texts, otherwise there are no confirmed cases. Well, till now.

For 2 years after the exhumation of Itigilov’s body there is no change on it. Still not perish nor decay, no fungus. Before Itigelov died he said that he left a message to all peoples on Earth. This message is without any word, despite of it now it´s our turn to understand it.

3 Nearly Effortless Ways to Improve Your Memory and Recall, Backed by Neuroscience -Article-

3 Nearly Effortless Ways to Improve Your Memory and Recall, Backed by NeuroscienceWant to almost instantly improve your short term memory and recall? Of course you do.

You have an idea. A great idea. A brilliant idea. A potentially business- or life-changing idea. But then, by the time you get the chance to write it down... you've forgotten it.

Even though it's unlikely that something you can't remember for more than a few hours is that important, still: We've all had things we wanted to remember, but couldn't.

And that's a problem, because where success is concerned, what you know, and what you actually do with that knowledge, can make all the difference.

So what can you do if you need to remember something important? Most memory-improvement techniques -- like mnemonics, chunking, and building memory palaces -- involve a fair amount of effort.

Science to the rescue: Check out these simple ways to increase your short-term memory and recall.

Predict whether you will actually remember what you want to remember.
Sounds odd, I know. But this 2011 study published in Canadian Journal of Experimental Psychology shows the simple act of asking yourself whether you will remember something significantly improves the odds that you will remember, in some cases by as much as 50 percent.

That's especially true for remembering things you want to do, like prospective memories. Prospective memories are a form of memory that involve remembering to perform a planned action, or recall a planned intention, at some point in the future.

Like remembering to praise an employee, email a customer, or implement a schedule change.

Why this works is somewhat unclear. Maybe the act of predicting is a little like testing yourself; research shows that quizzing yourself is an extremely effective way to speed up the learning process. What is clear is that the act helps your hippocampus better form and index those episodic memories for later access.

So if you want to remember to do something in the future, take a second and predict whether you will remember.

Science says that act alone makes it more likely you will.

Say it out loud.
We've all been around people who repeat things they're learning out loud. Or just mouth the words. They look a little odd: Smart people just file knowledge away. They don't have to talk to themselves.

Actually, smart people do talk to themselves.

A 2010 study published in the aforementioned Journal of Experimental Psychology found that saying words out loud -- or just mouthing them -- makes them more distinctive. Separates them from all the other words you're thinking. Makes them different.

All of which makes them more memorable.

So go ahead. When you need to remember something, say it aloud. Or mouth it to yourself.

Your cerebral cortex will thank you for it.

Rehearse for 40 seconds.
Memory consolidation is the process where temporary memories are transformed into more stable, long-lasting memories. Even though the process of memory consolidation can be sped up, still: Storing a memory in a lasting way takes time.

One way to increase the odds is to rehearse whatever you want to remember for 40 seconds. A 2015 study published in the Journal of Neuroscience found that a brief period of rehearsal -- like replaying an event in your mind, going over what someone said in a meeting, or mentally mapping out a series of steps -- makes it significantly more likely that you will remember what you rehearsed .

As the researchers write, that "brief period of rehearsal has a huge effect on our ability to remember complex, lifelike events over periods of one to two weeks. We have also linked this rehearsal effect to processing in a particular part of the brain -- the posterior cingulate."

Which should be long enough for you to actually do something with whatever you hope to remember.
