Scientists Prove DNA Can Be Reprogrammed by Words and Frequencies

Russian scientific research directly or indirectly explains phenomena such as clairvoyance, intuition, spontaneous and remote acts of healing, self healing, affirmation techniques, unusual light/auras around people (namely spiritual masters), mind’s influence on weather patterns and much more. In addition, there is evidence for a whole new type of medicine in which DNA can be influenced and reprogrammed by words and frequencies WITHOUT cutting out and replacing single genes.

How to Eat Mindfully [Article]

Understanding our relationship to eating will cultivate a lot of insights and help us start living our highest potential. To help you within this journey of mindful eating we prepared for you: Brain and its Magic: Developing both Brain Hemisheres [Article] World Religions: Comparative Analysis. Nordic countries’ teaching methods reaping rewards.

Unesco statistics of tertiary education enrollment by country show that while 21.5 per cent of Maltese students successfully enrol into university each year, 70 per cent of the students in Nordic countries continuing their education after secondary school.

Nordic countries’ teaching methods reaping rewards

Nordic countries use techniques and tools that encourage collaboration - Nataša Pantovic Comparing the Nordic countries (Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland) with other EU countries, the difference clearly stands out. Steering towards a knowledge society for them meant higher education became a must. Shifting education goals. Education should teach children how to ask appropriate questions, how to analyse a problem, stimulate a desire to learn, and flexibility to consider different points of view.

Shifting education goals

One of the biggest problems of education today is that the ‘factory model’ of teaching: the top-down approach and the rewards-and-punishments ap­proach, limit students’ ability to contribute with their imagination and creativity. In the Finnish educational model, active learning is taken seriously. Schoolchildren do not sit at their desks memorising - Natasa Pantovic. Tapping the brain’s magic. With traditional educational methods – its curriculum and its focus on examinations – students quickly lose motivation and interest for science and its magic.

Tapping the brain’s magic

The human brain is truly extraordinary. A healthy brain has some 200 billion neurons. The conscious mind controls our brain for only five per cent of the day, whereas the subconscious mind has control of our thoughts 95 per cent of the time. Internet and privacy: Is a marketing Big Brother always watching? Online ads can build awareness and influence the decision-making process.

Internet and privacy: Is a marketing Big Brother always watching?

However, the online ads dig into once privacy much more than anyone could have ever imagined. When 124 most loyal customers of a Manhattan restaurant received a discount for a burger SMS offer, they must have loved the fact that they are recognised and appreciated by their favourite restaurant. Those 124 “loyalists” re-tweeted this offer to over 40,000 people in their social networks. Best practice for engaging the customers online. In an ideal world the marketing cycle will start with the customers’ needs analysis, is constantly influenced by customers and will change as fast as the customers change their mind-set.

Best practice for engaging the customers online

However, during the last decade we have become masters of the “creating the need” game, abandoning this important first step. Listening to customers is often replaced by a marketing effort to convince the consumers that they absolutely need the advertised product, service or offer. “My product or service is truly the best and truly unique” became a very difficult message to convey within the advertisement clutter we live in.

Forget pushy tactics on social media. Word of mouth is much more effective than hard selling on social media.

Forget pushy tactics on social media

A key element that makes social media trustworthy is that it represents someone’s sincere opinion. The authenticity of word-of-mouth is clearer and louder than any form of advertisement. Websites, blogs and twits that have many users, can nowadays sell their blog and tweet posts to the companies that realise the value of internet reaching a substantial audience. IZEA, in its social media sponsorship research published last August 2011, states that marketers worldwide nowadays put a monetary value on the different types of social media sponsorships. To keep their site mentioned on the web they offer an average of $150 per blog post or video posting and $70 per tweet or a Facebook update. Taking care of your online karma. Benjamin Franklin once said “It takes many good deeds to build a good reputation and only one bad one to lose it”.

Taking care of your online karma

He lived in the 18th century and could have had no idea that his quote would be used over and over again by the likes of internet reputation management consultants today, whose focus is to continually stress the importance of reputation management strategies. The communication exchange on the web is fast, every single contributor counts, and the internet can be the cruel broadcaster of a wrongly written word. The internet is full of stories of companies that lost their reputation online because of a simple mistake. The ‘Dell Hell’ saga several years ago is a well-known example of how careful a company has to be with the management of its online reputation. A Dell customer, Jeff Jarvis, wrote a blog detailing his problems with his new Dell computer, and the lack of support he received from Dell.

Passionate internet marketing. “Marketing is not an attitude, it is a mind-set”, I read somewhere recently.

Passionate internet marketing

An attitude changes with the change of experience, a mind-set implants itself within the mind and becomes a powerful incentive to adopt a particular behaviour over and over again. Marketing is used to identify the customer, to create, communicate, and deliver value to customers. Arts make students smart. When children are physically active and creative, they tend to focus better and work more enthusiastically with the rest of the curriculum.

Arts, sport, music and drama are often viewed as fun extra-curricular activities for children but are given less importance compared with core subjects such as English, science, or mathematics. The arts should be taken seriously as a source of inspiration, as a way of life - Nataša Pantović Nevertheless, numerous studies prove that practising arts, music and sport from an early age improves brain activity, self-confidence, and gives students an overall sense of well-being.

Education of the future. In a typical classroom in Finland, students work in small groups. The teacher nurtures independence and active learning, allowing them to develop skills to understand and solve problems. “You may give them your love but not your thoughts, for they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. Create freedom in the learning environment. Allow your child to cook, wash dishes, and take care of plants and animals. These activities are extremely interesting for children because they can act as grown-ups.

A child has a deep longing to discover that the world is based on truth. Respect that longing. In our attempt to help children grow into inspired adults, we wish them to carry the youthfulness of their souls and the wonders of childhood into their old age. Rudolf Steiner once said: “The need for imagination, a sense of truth and a feeling of responsibility – these are the three forces which are the very nerve of education.” Do rewards, punishment work? In an experiment, children’s brains reacted strongly to positive feedback and scarcely responded at all to negative feedback.

Our basic strategy for raising children or teaching students is a reward and punishment strategy. We are what we believe we are - C.S. Lewis. Will we learn from Finland? Finland’s no-national-exams policy goes against the trend of competition, standardisation, testing and control. One of the unfortunate limitations of test-oriented education is that if children pass their school tests, they are considered winners; otherwise, they are viewed as losers and this classification is engraved in their minds at a very young age. Finland has succeeded in creating a generation of inspired and outstanding students - Natasa Pantovic. Divergent thinking. Inspired or lost in the technology matrix? TRENDING.
