Many people can sense something different in the air but can not quite put their finger on what it is. Many of us feel as though we are living in extraordinary times, yet we are unsure of what is about to unfold. What we can tell from past history is that when we feel like this, a door is about to open.

So, how can this feeling be measured?
Global consciousness (sometimes called “field consciousness”) is the notion that when groups of people focus their minds on the same thing, they influence “the world at large” (Radin 1997: ch. 10).
Roger Nelson heads the Global Consciousness Project, which is an organization that collects data from around the world in its effort to prove that global consciousness exists. Nelson published a study called “Wishing for Good Weather,” which appeared in The Journal for Scientific Exploration (1997, Vol. 11, No. 1). The following is an excerpt from the abstract:
Reunion and commencement activities at Princeton University, involving thousands of alumni, graduates, family and others, are held outdoors, and it is often remarked that they are almost always blessed with good weather. A comparison of the recorded rainfall in Princeton vs. nearby communities shows that there is significantly less rain, less often, in Princeton on those days with major outdoor activities.
Nelson’s research results suggested that focused intention in Princeton kept the rain away.
An amazing facet of this research found that our thoughts can sometime be precognitive. For example, testing results were dramatically amplified before September 11, 2001, as if many people knew something big was about to happen, but could not specifically put their finger on what was about to occur.
