Science and spirituality are not mutually exclusive, Dr. Morse explains. Discover how neuroscience supports rather than refutes the reality of the NDE.
Join Melvin and learn about the science of NDEs and what it teaches us about about our vast creative and intuitive potential.
Spiritual neuroscience is the scientific study of the brain as a spiritual tool to help our consciousness learn lessons of love. For example, we know that our right brain processes billions of bits of information every second.
Our left brain, our internal narrator, our chattering monkey within, only uses 10,000 bits of information per second to create this reality. Yet we think that what we see and hear is all there is to life! Our brain serves as a reducing valve to filter the otherwise overwhelming billions of bits of information.
Our ego is in fact our "little" brain.
Of course we need an ego to interact and function within this reality. We must be able to analyze and use judgment in order to learn our lessons of love.
We can also to learn to use our spiritual brain to access the billions of bits of information that we directly access from the "mind of God." This vast informational field inspires and increases greater creativity, insight, and intuition.
You can learn to use your brain to facilitate your spiritual gifts, just as a great musician learns to play a musical instrument.
