Watch this space!

Why does neurological injury sometimes precipitate a psychic opening?  Can this tie-in be used to help both neurological healing and psychic development?

What is the neurological substrate of psychic ability?  Are there parts of the brain that are especially important to psychic ability?  What is the relationship of brain waves (beta, alpha, theta, delta, gamma, etc.) to psi?

What is the relationship between psi and  neurological disorders such as epilepsy?  To the extent that psychological disorders are also neurological disorders, how do they correlate with psi? 

To what extent are Kundalini awakening and shamanic initiatory illness neurological re-wirings?  Are most illnesses an attempt to realign to one’s true self, which naturally entails becoming more psychic and more spiritually mature?  Do most illnesses have more of a neurological element than we have realized?

Do neurological illnesses respond more slowly than other illnesses to energy healing (aka psychic healing, faith healing, consciousness / information healing, intention, prayer)?  If so, does this provide a clue to the relationship between neurobiology and psi?

Is the brain already operating psychically all the time, but a psychic opening is a leap in efficiency and capacity?  Is the putative unused capacity of the brain already being used for psi, just unconsciously?  Are human infants wired normally for great psychic ability, and culture shuts it down?

Is memory, in fact, retrocognition?  In other words, are we transcending space-time and visiting the co-extant past more literally than we have realized?

What does it mean that there is more brain injury being caused and survived than ever before – traumatic brain injury as the signature injury of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars; sports concussions, “chemo brain” caused by cancer drugs, “protracted withdrawal syndrome” caused by psychotropic medication, etc.?

These are the questions I would like to explore in this blog.  Stay tuned!


  1. What a great combination of interests. Congratulations on your new blog! Can’t wait to hear more.

  2. very interesting to read


  3. Hi Sheila, just came across your blog, you may want to go to my website and have a look to see if you are interested in chatting further on this matter. I also had a stroke in May 2011 which has opened up area's in my mind which i never thought possible. Would love to chat - Thanks Johan

    1. Thanks for commenting. I'm so sorry to hear of the stroke and very glad to hear that you are not only recovering but opening up in unanticipated ways. If you feel like emailing it to me, I would be interested in collecting for my research your experience of the connections between the neurological incident and psi opening. Wishing you continued healing and adventure, Sheila
