These People are Going into Syria on Feb 1st to Meditate for Global Peace*
By Rajie Kabli
This isn’t the first time James Twyman has been called to participate in peace dealings. It has been his life’s work for over 20 years; he has sponsored prayer vigils and even played in Iraq in 1998, when asked by Saddam Hussain to do a peace concert with over a million people.
I spoke to him while he was in Assisi, Italy, and he told me that 30 years ago, leaders from 12 major religions came together to pray their peace prayers from their respective religions. James received these prayers in 1994 from a friend, learned them, and put them to music. He soon realized what it was his calling to share them with the world.
Years later, he still sees the immense value in people coming together in a harmonized way for peaceful outcomes. This mission feels especially important to him right now because of the very tangible fear people have surrounding terrorism and ISIS. It all started when he was contacted by a group based out of Jerusalem called the Abrahamic Reunion. They represent leaders from Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. Together they will be going to a Syrian village on the border of Israel which overlooks three villages under ISIS control. For safety reasons the location will not be revealed until the day before the meditation, but essentially, they are coming together to show solidarity and make a statement against extremism is all religions. They will be singing prayers/hymns from each religion at the exact moment millions around the world will be in meditation.
They are not looking to connect with anyone in ISIS, nor is James walking into a village with a guitar on his back. He does not have a death wish nor is he looking to be a martyr. The idea is to get as close as possible while being as safe as possible. There is a certain amount of risk involved, of course, but the group would really like to demonstrate the power of synchronized meditation and give others around the world a chance to join in on a peaceful action. They feel taking this risk will make more of a forceful statement than if they were to organize somewhere in North America or Europe
James has seen the power of synchronized meditation work, and says that thus far, the political and military ‘solutions’ of global leaders have been ineffective at best, and counterproductive at worst. He feels a different approach is worth trying. At the very least, this event will give people the opportunity to actively contribute to peace efforts (and reap the many benefits of meditation at the same time).
Join millions of other people in this powerful moment on February 1st at www.worldpeacepulse.com. Bringing in feelings of peace to yourself and then releasing or extending those feelings out to the rest of the world is really all you have to do. Let’s see what happens!
The Science of Intention
In 1984 a study took place at three different gatherings of over 7000 people who did meditation each morning and evening for three consecutive weeks. The study took place in Fairfield, Iowa (December 17, 1983-January 6, 1984), The Hague, Holland (December 21, 1984-January 13, 1985) and Washington, DC (July 1-July 10, 1985). The results were quite eye-opening. ‘Time series’ analysis was used in this study to rule out possibilities that the reduction in global terrorism was caused by pre-existing trends, drifts in data or cycles.
Some Scientists believe this is due to a coherent resonance being created in the Unified Quantum Field by those meditating.
The 7,000 people meditating created a Field Effect of harmonious coherence that spread throughout the collective–which, it is believed, helped to reduce acts of terrorism.
This effect is called the “Maharishi Effect”, and has over 600 scientific studies conducted in 33 countries and in over 250 independent research institutions. The evidence overwhelmingly correlates synchronized group prayer and meditation having social, political and economic benefits to the world. Positive correlations for numerous health benefits to the individual were also observed and confirmed.
Today this type of energy is being calculated by the Global Consciousness Project (GCP), whose home is at the Institute of Noetic Sciences. This initiative has been collecting data for over 15 years, with up to 70 host sites worldwide, using random number generators. The evidence suggests there is a unifying field of consciousness described by sages in almost all cultures, it’s quite fascinating and you can read more about it in some of the articles linked below.
Major world events, such as the 9/11 attack (2001), Nepal’s earthquake (2015), worldwide meditations (2015), and more, have been recorded by the GCP and has shown that the synchronization of RNG’s has occurred when thoughts, emotions and intentions of many people from around the world get synchronized.
There are several examples that have yielded statistically significant results when it comes to measuring the effects of human intention on our physical material world, and we’ve written about this in depth in various articles.
