One of the core beliefs shared by most Care2 members is that everything and everyone is connected.  The impact a person or company has in one location, at some point impacts others on the other side of the world.  Global warming is a beautifully tragic example of this inter-connectedness.

But how connected are we really? 
Quantum physics explains we’re all literally connected through energy fields.  In fact, it’s essentially one big continuum of energy between you, the person next to you, the rocks, plants and animals.   But are there individuals that can actually harness that energy force, to say, move an object?  Mainstream science says that’s unproven, and I would have agreed, until I met Gerard Senehi.
Gerard Senehi
Gerard Senehi is a “mentalist” who uses his abilities to stretch people’s perceptions of reality.  I first met Gerard a little over a year ago at the “Alliance for a New Humanity” conference in Costa Rica. 

Watching Gerard is a mind altering experience. He can bend a key (which you give him) on your palm with a single finger, while you watch. You won’t be able to bend it back.  He can make forks or pencils jump off the table while his hand hovers 6 inches above. He can seemingly read people’s minds – I’ve seen him do this with friends of mine that I know aren’t shills.

I’m a pretty skeptical guy when it comes to stuff like this.  I’m analytical, love numbers, and trust the scientific method.  I’ve done my research and know how skeptics claim Uri Geller faked bending spoons.  Magicians use sleight of hand and tricks to fool the mind.  But I’ve stood less than two feet away watching Gerard seemingly bend a coin with his finger or make a wooden object jump from the table without touching it. It’s truly unlike anything I’ve ever seen, and I have absolutely no explanation other than he’s tapping into something metaphysical. 

Gerard won’t say whether it’s real or not.  His mission is not so much to entertain, but rather to stretch people’s vision of reality.  As he says, “I really enjoy challenging peoples' ideas about reality -- not just to convey that things may not be as they seem, but because I want to inspire deeper questions about truth and about reality. My goal is not to make people believe but to open a little door in the back of their mind and spark a renewed curiosity about the mysterious nature of life...” 

To that end, Gerard has been a supporter of EnlightenNext magazine for the past 20 years.  I encourage you to take a look if you’re interested in spiritual enlightenment and the evolution of consciousness.   If we’re to solve many of the world's toughest problems, we must expand our minds to see the world of possibilities – and EnlightenNext is an inspirational place to start that journey.

Gerard will also be appearing on the Today show this morning. (Monday, June 8, 2009)  Tune in around 9am EST or get your DVR’s ready and get ready for a mind expanding experience.   [Update: here's the online portion of the show]

You’ll also find more on Gerard, including videos of past performances at his new website GerardSenehi.com
