This is going to sound like science fiction, or at least some New Age feel good story. But it is not. This is not only a true story, it is one which has been duplicated a number of times.
We all hear the New Age guru’s telling us we can manifest our life, right? So get a load of this study. In 2001, a Professor Leibovici took a stack of hospital case histories and divided them into two random piles. All of them had been admitted to the hospital for blood poisoning. The names in stack A were prayed for, while the group in stack B were not.
As to be expected, Group A was found to have a reduced rate of fevers, shorter hospital stays and a lower mortality rate.
So far, no unexpected results. We all know that prayer can make a huge difference. So get ready for the good part of this study.
Are you ready? Here goes. All of the patients in the study had been discharged from the hospital ten years earlier! Oh man oh man! What does that mean?
It seems to show that the power of intention doesn’t care about time lines. Isn’t that cool?
