The Mandela Effect

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was born in Mvezo, South Africa on July 18, 1918. Showing himself to be a individual that lead by example, he was imprisoned for his beliefs in 1962 and held for the next 27 years of his life. Upon release, Nelson Mandela served as president of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. During his life, Nelson Mandela was an anti-apartheid revolutionary, political figure, and eventually passed away on December 5th, 2013 at the ripe old age of 95 in Gauteng, South Africa.


“Do not judge me by my success, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.” Nelson Mandela 

What is the Mandella Effect

The Mandela Effect is a term used to describe an issue where a group of people have a memory of events that occurred a certain way. However when observed more closely, history tells of the events occurring differently than the group of people had remembered them. This phenomena has been named after the man, Nelson Mandela because many people have the memory of him dying in prison during the 1980’s. Yet, when observed through the eyes of history we are told that was not the case. In 2010, Fiona Broome came up with the term “Mandela Effect” as she realized many others shared the same memory as her, that Mandela had never been released and in fact died in prison.

Mandela Effect: My Take

For me, the Mandela Effect is not so easily brushed off as a mere trick of the mind or a simple misremembering. I for one can recall a couple of the examples above as the way they were and not the way they currently are. As a child in elementary school, we received the scholastic book club newsletter on a monthly basis. One of the prominently featured books for sale was often the Barenstein Bears Collection. I intentionally use the spelling “Barenstein” with an “E” since as a child I saw them as Jewish bears because of their last name. Like the Jewish last names of Feldstein or Goldstein, I saw the Barenstein Bears as Jewish bears. Nothing wrong with this of course, I only bring it up to explain how I remembered them. There was never an “A” there from my recollection. My brother agrees with me as he also bought some of the Berenstein books during his time at the same school.

It is important to remember that with the ME, this is not a singular event that is occurring. Large groups of people are having the exact same memories that are clearly different from what occurred. And we’re not just talking about a select group of individuals. Instead of brushing it off as bad memory, we should seriously consider that if even one of these memories is in fact the way that we remember it and reality has changed, then we are on to something really big. All it takes is one ME to be wrong for us to realize something here is not quiet right.

Ultimately, no one can tell you what is right or wrong when it comes to your memory. I know memories can be prone to mistakes as everyone has their own perspective of an event that occurred including their added coloration of the events, but the ME is more than that. Sure, it’s easy to just shrug it off as a simple misremembering of past events, but it’s time we look a bit deeper. Something very interesting is occurring at this time on planet earth and it goes by the name of… The Mandela Effect!

The Great Cycle of Yugas

Before we begin it is important to note that in this reality, everything moves in cycles. The Sun and Moon bring us visual proof of the cycles of day and night. The four seasons provide us the cycle of a full years time through Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. As human beings we are born into this world and when it is our time to go, we eventually pass on. These are cycles every human being is aware of and lives through regardless of their age. Today I would like to discuss another cycle that you may not be aware of. The Great Cycle of Yugas!


“The Tapas and the other hard Yogas that were practiced in other Yugas do not work now. What is needed in this Yuga is giving, helping others.” Swami Vivekananda

What is the Great Cycle of Yugas

According to the Hindu religion there are many different ages going back all the way to the beginning of time, both large and small. The smallest of these cycles is called a Maha Yuga which is approximately 4,320,000 years. A single Kala consists of 4 Yugas or an epoch in time. The first Yuga is the Satya Yuga. Second is the Treta Yuga. Third is the Dvapara YugaSatya Yuga. Second is the Treta Yuga. Third is the Dvapara Yuga. And the fourth is the Kali Yuga. One complete cycle of the four yugas is approximately 4.32 million years. Each maha yuga is subdivided into four ages lengths with ratios of 4:3:2:1

Satya Yuga (Golden Age) approx. 4,800 years [Great Year Cycle] / 1,780,000 years [Cycle of Yugas] – Also known as “The Age of Truth” or “The Age of Unity” the Satya Yuga is a time where the absolute best ideals of humanity reign supreme. The highest of all the ages, this age represents divine consciousness. Space and time is seen for the illusion it is and human beings strive to be their best, living up to our maximum potential. There is no need for fighting or wars as we are all living at peace with one another. No one has to work or struggle to survive as thoughts are easily manifest. Living in complete harmony with nature, it is believed that death during this age only comes when one so desires. The Satya Yuga is 100% Light and 0% Dark.

Treta Yuga (Silver Age) approx. 3,600 years [GYC] / 1,296,000 years [COY] – Also known as “The Mental Age” is a period that consists of much more light than it does dark. We live in service to others as telepathy, intuition, clairvoyance and empathy are present and available to all that are willing to access it. During this period we become a bit more materialistic and slightly less spiritual than we were in the previous age. With an life expectancy of 10,000 years, the Tetra Yuga is 75% Light and 25% Dark.

Dvapara Yuga (Bronze Age) approx. 2,400 years [GYC] / 864,000 years [COY] – Also known as the “Age of Energy” or the “Electrical Age” is an age where spirituality and physicality are split between the two. With the loss of our higher facilities, machines are used to manipulate matter to our desires. Divine intellect is much more difficult to obtain, and we become pleasure seeking creatures. Because our connection is more severed during this age than previous ages, illness and disease come into play within our lives much more than before. With an life expectancy of 1,000 years, the Dvapara Yuga is equally 50% Light and 50% Dark.

Kali Yuga (Iron Age) approx. 1,200 years [GYC] / 432,000 years [COY] – Also known as the “Material Age” or the “Dark Age” the Kali Yuga is the lowest of all the ages as we become even more separate from our divine nature. During this period humanity sinks to the nethermost form of itself, allowing wickedness to be expressed in many ways previously unseen. The Immoral Age of Iron is the shortest and and darkest time of the Yugas. With a life expectancy of 100 to 120 years, the Kali Yuga is 25% Light and 75% Dark.


“Kali yuga is so much saturated with vicious habits that there is a great fight at the slightest of misunderstanding.” Radhanath Swami


Once this cycle is complete it begins again, however this time instead of going form top to bottom we now go from bottom to top. So rather than a decent into increased darkness from the Satya Yuga down to the Kali Yuga, we now move from the Kali Yuga up to the Satya Yuga in stages of increasing consciousness. Down from light to dark and then up from darkness to the light. Similar to a sine wave, going from highest to lowest energy then back from lowest energy to the highest. This coincides with the original point that everything moves in complete cycles. Always repeating itself, The Great Cycle of Yugas is no different.

What can we expect from The Great Cycle of Yugas?

You may notice the negative aspect of the yugas only consists of one third of the time within The Great Cycle of Yugas while the positive aspect consists of two thirds of the time. I believe the idea behind this is that darkness always loses eventually, but is never completely defeated. Winning a few battles along the way, but ultimately losing the war in due time.

The Great Cycle of Yugas is a continuous cycle descending from light into the darkness and then ascending up again from the darkness into the light. Polarity is one of the key factors in this reality we find ourselves engrossed in. It is our job live to the best of our abilities regardless of which age of polarity we may reside in. Like any belief system it is up to you to come to your own conclusions on The Cycle of Ages and how this knowledge will affect you personally. Wishing you all the best to you and yours on this journey of life family. Peace.

An Introduction to Binural Beats

Discovered by H. W. Dove in 1839, it wasn’t until 1973 that Robert Monroe and his team introduced binural tones as a way to influence human consciousness. Binural beats are a unique form of music that uses separate tones to create a desired effect. It works like this… Through a set of stereo headphones, a tone of lets say 50 Hz is played into the left ear only. In the right ear a separate tone of lets say 60 Hz will be played at the same time. When listening to these two separate tones in each ear, a 3rd wavering tone will be created inside of your head. This wavering tone is not coming from the speakers but is in fact being created by you. The 3rd wavering sound is the binural beat and in the example given above, would be a sound of 10Hz which is the difference between the two original tones. A binural tone is a standing wave that is produced by the brain and is only possible due to binural hearing. Even after listening to these binural tones, your brain can still maintain the standing wave over a period of time.


“The greatest illusion is that mankind has limitations.” Robert A. Monroe

Hemi-Sync vs Holosync

The Hemi-sync technology was created in 1975 by Robert Monroe founder of the Monroe Institute located in Faber Virginia. Hemi-Sync stands for Hemispheric Synchronization which simply means a synchronization of the brains two hemispheres, the left side and right side of the brain. The Hemi-Sync tech is a powerful sound technology that consists of different combinations of binural beats, musical instruments, sound effects and / or verbal instructions. Each has a different effect, based upon the different programs and the way they are used. With Hemi-Sync you have the option to focus your brain to peak performance through brain synchronization, relax into a deep meditation or simply get a good restful night sleep. Today there are hundreds of different Hemi-Sync programs available to help people obtain many different states of consciousness, all available through the Monroe Institute and the Hemi-Sync website.

After many years of testing through the years of 1985 to 1989 Bill Harris and West Wait brought Holosync to the public through the Centerpoint Research Institute. Very similar to Hemisync, in that it is about hemispheric synchronization, Holosync increases the connection and function between the two sides of your brain. Holosync achieves this by using different combinations of binural beats, musical instruments, sound effects and / or verbal instructions. Holosync is said to give your nervous system stimulus in the same way a workout would for your physical body. Using Holosync can increase your mental and emotional threshold as well as your intelligence and creativity. Your brain creates new neural pathways as it adapts to the Holosync tech. More information on this technology can be found on the Centerpoint website.

Brainwave States

Nerve cells in your brain generate electrical impulses that fluctuate in distinct patterns called brain wave patterns. These patterns include your thoughts, emotions, state of being, as well as bodily functions. There are 5 categories of brainwave patterns. Alpha, beta, delta, gamma and theta states.

Gamma (38 Hz – 42 Hz) Brainwaves are the quickest of all the brainwave states. Initially dismissed and extra brain noise, until it was discovered that Gamma waves are in fact active when in states of the higher consciousness like universal love. Gamma is above the frequency at which your neurons fire so how it is generated still remains a mystery to this day.

Beta (12 Hz – 32 Hz) Is seen as your normal waking state of consciousness, experienced during times of high mental and physical activity. Associated with concentration, arousal, alertness and engagement such as decision making and problem solving. While on the opposite end, the higher levels of beta can be associated with anxiety, disharmony, or unease.

Alpha (8 Hz – 12 Hz) As your brainwaves slow they enter an alpha state. Relaxed but alert, alpha is between the stages of being asleep and awake. The lower range of alpha is a state of deep relaxation, while the higher end of alpha is a more focused yet still a very relaxed state to be in. When you are calm but engaged, like watching a good movie at your local cinema, then you are probably in the alpha state. Alpha is most often associated with super learning.

Theta (3 Hz – 8 Hz) Waves are even slower than alpha. Trance, hypnosis, dreaming sleep and deep mediation are considered theta states. Associated with increased creativity, memory abilities, and forms of super learning. Those moments where a great idea or a flash of incite suddenly comes to you are theta states. the self sabotaging parts of the left brain are bypassed in the theta state. In the lower theta state the brain makes lots of relaxing endorphin’s that can bring mild visions or simply melt away any stress you may be experiencing.

Delta (.5 Hz – 3 Hz) The slowest brainwave pattern often associated with deep sleep. People are most often sleep while in this state but there is evidence that those highly skilled in meditation can obtain the delta state while staying awake. Healing and regeneration are stimulated in this state. And in certain delta frequencies the brain releases many highly beneficial substances, including human growth hormone which helps to fight age associated diseases and keep you younger.

As your brain slows from Beta to Alpha to Theta to Delta, the balance between the two hemispheres of your brain increases. This balanced state is called brain synchronization or hemispheric synchronization. Using your brain while in this state you begin to use whole brain thinking / functioning. This means you are now using both sides of your brain to think instead of just one side at a time as we normally do. It gives you increased creativity, learning abilities and enhances memory, helping you to become less self conscious and function on a more intuitive level. In some ways, even becoming the stuff of comic book legends. Somewhat of a super hero, with increased mental powers and abilities, tapping into remarkable potential that you never even knew existed.


“The depth of learning is in direct relation to the intensity of the experience.” Robert A. Monroe

How to Listen to Binural Beats

The most effective way to listen to Binaural Beats is through stereo headphones. Speakers work great as well if you are providing the binaural beats for a large group of people, but headphones are still the best option. This is because different sounds are sent through the left and right sides of the headphones, so with speakers there may be some overlap. Having separate speakers for each ear without interference is most beneficial and better facilitates hemispheric synchronization. If you are going to use speakers instead of headphones make sure to sit near the center of the speakers for the best results. And remember lower is usually better. You don’t need to blast the tones at full volume when you are trying to relax into different states of consciousness.

My Take on Binural Beats

Scientifically proven to work, binural beats are a fantastic option for self improvement and spiritual growth. Though they can be used anytime you prefer, I like to listen to them right after I wake up in the morning or right as I am going to sleep at night. This is because I am already in a relaxed state and more open to receive the max benefits from the program.

Remember to start slow and work your way up. Beta to alpha to theta to delta is the recommended way to go. Switching from beta to delta can be an uncomfortable experience as your brain may not be ready for that kind of leap. Much like riding a bike always start slow with the training wheels on and then work your way up. Allow your brain time it needs to build the new neural pathways you are creating. There is no need to rush as it is a process and the deeper states will be there when you are ready for them.


“Always know and remember that you are more than your physical body.” Robert A. Monroe


A final note… Even though we have discussed the many benefits of binural tones, one should be cautious when listening to and downloading these audio programs over the internet. You just don’t know how these sounds were mixed and they might even have an adverse affect on you. Unlike the Monroe Institute where all of their Hemi-Sync music has been tested and perfected over many years of trial and error. So please exercise caution when you are listening from unofficial sources.

Who is Alan Watts?

Alan Watts was born on January 6, 1915 in Chislehurst, England. Watts was a philosopher, author, poet, calligrapher, and a guide to different forms of spiritual understanding. During his lifetime Alan Watts wrote more than 25 books regarding psychology, philosophy and the many religions of the world. He became interested and began studying Buddhism at a young age. By 16 Watts became the secretary of the London Buddhist Association, created his first pamphlet by 17 and published his very first book by the age of 21.


“A Buddha would see you all as being exactly right; just where you are, all of you are Buddhas. Even for those of you who do not know it, it is right for you not to know it at this moment.” Alan Watts


One of the main contributors in bringing eastern philosophy to the America’s, his television and radio broadcasts helped to spark an interest in Zen Buddhism in the west to a level not seen before. Later, he became a Episcopalian priest and chaplain at Northwest University in Illinois where he conducted many spirited discussions with his students. In 1951, he would become the director of the American Academy of Asian Studies after moving San Fransisco. Alan Watts would stay in the San Fransisco Bay Area area until he passed away on November 16th 1973 at Mt. Tamalpais, California. His funeral was held at Green Gulch Farm.

Alan Watts: Mystical Philosopher

Everyone has their own particular views and belief systems when it comes to religion and spirituality. What one thing may be to some, can be completely different for another. However I viewed Alan Watts as an eloquent speaker and passionate poet. During his many well though out lectures Watts presented ancient traditions and spirituality in a very basic and straight forward manor that was easily digestible. He would give examples of the points he would convey through his parables, causing one to reflect deeply on the message being taught. Through these teachings I have personally seen people become freed from their ego’s, addictions, and lofty visions of self. Transforming from the former into a more open minded and compassionate human being.


“I do not even style myself a Zen Buddhist. For the aspect of Zen in which I am personally interested is nothing that can be organized, taught, transmitted, certified, or wrapped up in any kind of system. It can’t even be followed, for everyone has to find it for himself.” Alan Watts


It is my belief that Watts did not see Buddhism as a religion per se, but more of a way for people to dig deeper within and connect with a higher version of themselves. This understanding would ultimately give us the ability to not only heal on a personal level, but to view our reality from a very different perspective than we were use to. In fact, his perspective that our current world of technological advancement is a bit skewed, and that more of a balance between spirituality and technology could benefit us all is a belief I still hold to this day.


“This is the real secret of life—to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.” Alan Watts


A uniquely great teacher, Alan Watts brought the ideas of Zen to the West and changed the culture in many unforeseeable ways. A plethora of his books and lectures are still available online and can be found on sites like Youtube. Even today, his legacy continues to live on through a website that he and his son created which can be found at
