Many of you have asked about an experiment I shared with you during our Week Long Advanced Retreat in Marco Island, Florida, a couple of months ago.
To briefly recap, our team of researchers wanted to advance our ongoing studies on meditators’ ability to influence the outcome of random events – virtual “coin tosses,” if you will – by combining a clear intention and elevated emotion; both functions of brain and heart coherence.
Until Marco Island, we’d used mechanical random-event generators, or REGs, to conduct these experiments – and our initial results had indicated we can alter outcomes in our 3-D world, making such events less random and more intentional.
In Florida, we evolved the study, moving from a mechanistic model – those REGs – to a biological model – cloned bacteria whose plasmids had been programmed to produce either a green or red fluorescent protein. Just as in that virtual “coin toss” generated by the mechanical REG, there’s a 50-50 chance the plasmids would produce either color – green or red.
Without telling Marco Island retreat attendees, we placed the cloned bacteria in the room while teachings, meditations, and Coherence Healing™ sessions took place throughout the week. And, as expected, the plasmids – without any energetic or other interference – produced red and green in about equal measure, resulting in a sort of blended, pinkish-brown color in the samples.
But on the last day of the retreat, I told community members in attendance about the experiment. We’d seen, in earlier studies, what had happened when we focused our energies on the programmed, mechanical REGs – how meditators could influence the outcome of a seemingly random event. Now, with those living bacterial samples in the room, we wanted to find out if we could generate similar results – this time, with a biological model.
It’s simple, I told our attendees. With clear intention, and elevated emotion, I want you to tune into the plasmids on those bacteria. And I want you to focus your highly ordered, coherent energy on this outcome: green.
In other words, at the end of the event, I asked the community of about 1,500 people to move their consciousness – with coherent brains and hearts – beyond space and time and connect to the quantum field. Since the unified field is what creates matter, and all things are connected by thought in this realm, could they fall in love with the color green – and collectively change the field … and change matter?
Now, weeks after that powerful meditation, we have some findings.
What the data is telling us
One thing we could assume – before even reading the results – was this: with an experiment of this nature, the placebo effect could immediately be ruled out. When we’re experimenting with our own species, the influence of conditioning, expectation, and intention is always present. Our tendency to be swayed by our memory of the past and our anticipation of the future – through mind and body – is going to affect the results in some way.
But with bacteria – with mere cells – there’s no subjective mind. There’s no body. So, if the data shows a change in their gene expression – if the random, 50-50, red-green outcome becomes less random – we know the results are free of the influence of the placebo effect.
That’s why, following the experiment in Marco Island, it was exciting to read the first sentence of an email from Dr. Peter Melcher, Professor of Biology at Ithaca College – the researcher who programmed the bacteria and approached us about this experiment. “The scientific team has preliminary evidence to suggest that intention is able to impact a living random event system,” it read.
Dr. Melcher continued: “The preliminary findings show that throughout the week, the bacteria were largely brown/pink; however, a few hours following the intention on the last day, there was a dramatic shift to increase GREEN at the Marco Island site.”
After running some more samples, he added: “The picture is very clear that the green intention led by Dr Joe resulted in more green fluorescent protein in the meditation room.” And concluded with this statement: “Human intention altered gene expression in another species.”
Read that again. “Human intention altered gene expression in another species.”
This is the primary reason we wanted to evolve the experiment from a mechanistic to a biological model. As I’ve said before: if we can see an external influence on an otherwise random event, nonlocally, it builds a model much closer to our own biology. So, if we can influence the genetics in another species – can we, with the same formula, be genetic healers in our own species?
The early indications are: yes, we can. And for those of us who have been in this work for a long time, this isn’t a surprise – as much as it’s a confirmation of what we’re already living. We already have evidence – in the form of thousands of testimonials from others and ourselves. This could explain why countless numbers of people who have received remote – as well as in-person – Coherence Healing sessions have reported significant changes in their health.
What makes this experiment – and so many others we’re conducting – important is: now, it isn’t just we who are saying it’s true. The data is saying it.
And the data is helping us shape and refine our studies – so our experiments will continue to evolve. At our upcoming Week Long Advanced Retreat in San Diego next month, we’ll be conducting a similar experiment as the one in Marco Island – but we’ll be able to measure the results in real time. This means we should be able to fine-tune the impact on the plasmids at the exact moment our attendees tune into them during meditation.
We’ll also be furthering our studies on quantum entanglement – the concept that, once two particles are linked, they always will be bonded together beyond space and time. And so: anything done to one will be done to the other – even if they’re spatially separated. Because the bacteria we’re working with – the ones with the programmed plasmids – were all cloned from the same bacteria, they are, in essence, linked particles.
Our next frontier is to study twins and observe – through real-time, quantitative, electroencephalogram and heart-rate variability measurements – how one twin’s mind and emotions may be affecting the other’s.
Through the experiments we’ve conducted thus far, we already have some early findings suggesting energetic entanglement; we hope to find out more in San Diego. Stay tuned.
Co-creating in Community
A fundamental concept at the heart of these experiments is this: reality is determined by collective networks of observers (that’s you, me, and everyone else in our community). And, as we’ve demonstrated in previous events, it isn’t about the greatest number of observers – or about the intensity of emotion generated by them. It’s about their brain and heart coherence – the order of their energy.
When our event attendees tuned into the plasmids on those bacteria, I’d never seen so many people fall so deeply in love with the color green. The coherence in the room was palpable. Everyone was so present; so connected. Many had tears in their eyes. And here’s why: for them, this wasn’t about red or green plasmids. This was about collectively creating a new future.
The bacterial plasmids had been programmed to produce a color: red or green. With hyper-coherence, our community – as a collective network of observers – influenced the result: green. They overrode the programming. They co-created a new outcome in the 3-D world.
Think about what this means for all of us as we continue in this work. How have we been programmed – through conditioning; through routines and habits; through media; through unconscious thought and action? And how can we override this programming – and overcome ourselves?
If we can, through clear intention and elevated emotion, remotely influence the outcome of an otherwise random event in another species – as our data shows is possible – what else can we collectively influence? What can we repair? What can we heal? What can we build?
How can we, as a community, co-create greater outcomes for the world – together?
