Why Should I Try Quantum Jumping and What Is It?

Why Should I Try Quantum Jumping and What Is It?

Everything I Know About Quantum Jumping I Learned From My Mother (so far)

My Mom told me about quantum jumping last year and she said she has not been able to do it but she wants to.  What she explained it sounding like she

was talking about astral travel (out of body experience).  Today she was telling about it again after I explained what is going on with my relationships and my physical health issues.  She elaborated more and explained that we all have aspects of ourselves who are experts at a given topic

(e.g.: the me that is an expert healer, the great lover me, the excellent business-minded me, the great-with-children me, etc.), and the goal of qj is to make contact with one of these beings and ask them to give you the knowledge you need to perform a difficult task you don’t know how to accomplish.

The Matrix: Downloading Experience via Software vs Quantum Jumping

From one aspect, this concept is very “matrix-y” in the sense that it is similar to believing that there is a master data-set containing the entire canon of knowledge for a given topic that one simply transfers to one’s consciousness and thereby instantly attains the new desired techniques, skills, memories, and abilities.  So whereas quantum jumping may talk about accessing the super mind for information you receive from different expert versions of yourself, the matrix’s version is more computer-0riented and says that we can download any knowledge of a given topic (martial arts, cunnilingus, managing a roller coaster park, etc.) into

our brains and boom — now we are instant experts.  Note, though, that the Matrix movies offer no explanation or plausible suppositions as to how downloading those skills handle different people’s personal learn styles, speed of learning etc.  Instead, it essentially offers Hollywood’s standard story-line alternative when no plausible pseudo-science or futurism is available — the plot device of deus ex machina.

A Seance With Yourself ™

The concept of quantum jumping from her explanation of it makes more sense from a scientific and metaphysical standpoint.  If  she has explained it correctly, qj basically allows you to question yourself and to be answered back — not by some outside source that may not fully understand or care what you are trying to get out of this query session — but rather, in your own voice, using your own thought and speech patterns, and teaching you the new knowledge you are

A seance from the early 1900’s

seeking using the methods that you personally learn best with.  If my understanding is correct, this seems like something I will want to investigate further before trying it.  Essentially, my take on it is that (in a nutshell) it can be thought of in simplistic terms as a “seance with yourself”.

Tell Us About Your Experience With Quantum Jumping — Was It Good Or Bad? Would You Do It Again?

I do plan to try quantum jumping soon.  It seems like  it will be an amazing experience that will indeed, be life-changing and I eagerly await this mystical knowledge waypoint on my current journey.  Have you ever tried Quantum Jumping?  Have you trained under or worked with Burt Goldman in person?  Let me know in the comments below — I’d love to hear your story!

GNOSTIC, AGNOSTIC, & ATHEIST Definitions.

Posted by kristobaldude on October 7, 2009

(09/08/09) – 10:30PM – 12:47AM

gnostic pentagramOk, Great GRAB-A-BREW tonite! One of the questions that came up during discussion topics was what is the difference between GNOSTIC, AGNOSTIC, and ATHEIST. As, promised, here is what I found:

(It is useful to note that the understood meaning of these words have indeed changed through the millennia)

Although there are websites that delve into much greater detail on the epistemology, etymology, origins, and etiological, and CONTROVERSIAL aspects of these concepts, this is the “bumper sticker” version I was able to distill. 😉

GNOSTIC – A person who believes in God, but believes that salvation cannot be had without understanding of secret esoteric knowledge. The Jewish Quabala, Magickal Grimoires, The Bible Code, and the movie “PI” all come to mind, for a better understanding of what “esoteric” knowledge might refer to. The gnostic movement spanned many religions simultaneously and predates Christianity.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gnosticism)

(NOTE: The next two can be generally classified under the heading of “NONTHEIST”)

AGNOSTIC – My reading of this concept is thus: One who professes to be agnostic, is saying, where faith is believing in the existence of something for which you have not sufficient proof, the Agnostic will not claim belief in a supernatural being for which, in their experience, there is no proof, or not enough evidence to prove. The term has only been around since the 1860’s and it has permutated in many slight variations. Needless to say, one common meaning it has taken on today is essentially “I do not believe in God because there is not enough evidence” or “I do believe in God because I have experienced him/her empirically”, as opposed to just being taken as fact on the word of the preacher. Another common connotation is that an Agnostic believes either a) there is not enough evidence to prove the existence of a deity (though he may exist), or b) the existence of God cannot be proved or disproved, and therefore is inherently knowable.

ATHEIST – The semantics of this word have stirred a lot of controversy. Essentially, it is not believing in the existence of a God or Gods. However, there are nuances to the interpretation that have engendered ‘classifications’ of atheism. For instance, Buddhists who believe Gods don’t exist choose that belief. Whereas, newborn infants, or wildmen of the forest who are not exposed to society would also be considered atheists, as they have no concept of Gods, and thus no belief in them. Wikipedia says: “Writers disagree how best to define and classify atheism,[26] contesting what supernatural entities it applies to, whether it is an assertion in its own right or merely the absence of one, and whether it requires a conscious, explicit rejection. A variety of categories have been proposed to try to distinguish the different forms of atheism.”

The question of moral and atheists with good values was raised today. I think this term address that issue quite well:

Positive Atheist – “…entails such things as a being morally upright, showing an understanding that religious people have reasons to believe, not proselytising or lecturing others about atheism, and defending oneself with truthfulness instead of aiming to ‘win’ any confrontations with outspoken critics.”
(Sources:

[Here is an interesting variation on the theme:]
IRRELIGION: absence of religion, indifference to religion, and/or hostility to religion. This is not mutually exclusive with deism; many who are opposed to relgion, still believe in some form of deity.
