Be sure you have plenty of time to watch this U tube video.This 20 minute Brain Scientists Story will move you. Jill Bolte Taylor , following a stroke experienced her brain functions slip away one by one, speech , movement and understanding. You will want to recognize from this story how powerful the mind actually is. Recognize that she created a condition. She was so entirely focused passionately on wanting and needing to know how the brain functioned, so outside of the normal desire to know that she created a condition of the brain ( the tumour ) that allowed her to fully experience something she could not have otherwise experienced. This is certainly not how she intended to gain knowledge but she did indeed ask to receive and in keeping with what she asked for the Universe provided. When I mentioned it my personal spiritual guide Marlene had also had the exact same response of " KNOWING " without a doubt that this was manifested and not a random case of stroke that just happened to a neuroanatomist aware enough to experience it and come back from it and lecture on the experience.
