Can Virtual Reality (VR) technology be used to tap into your body´s innate healing abilities? Parker Howell is a revolutionary designer of VR technology who has helped a close mutual friend with stroke damage regain function in his right arm with VR-aided visualisation and movement. And more. Here we discuss using this technology to tap into your body´s own healing abilities. We reference the work of Dr Joe Dispenza and making healing, fun. This is fascinating!   Show Notes  2 mins - Parker´s intro to Virtual Reality. Dancing with the Stars. Jennifer Lopez, other celebs

17 - Working on healing and going into your body. Connecting with visual and audio stimuli, adding laters of code. Augmenting ability to heal. Putting it all together. 

18 - Hand tracking creation - enter Sean Entin, firing his naysayers, becoming the “Stroke Hacker”  

19 - “I’ve not looked at my hand in over a decade - can we get my mobility back?”

22 - Recreating non-working arm from working arm motion 

23 - Neural Linguistic Programming (NLP) - creating all of the senses - Cosmic Looking Glass - Neural Plasticity Trainer 

24 - Sean: “You’re never going to believe what happened.” Bench pressing from a paralysed arm! 

25 - Building from pre-existing tech. Correlation with Dr Joe Dispenza. 

26 - Visualising the spine recreating - Dr Joe Dispenza - teaching others to do the same. “Through visualisation we can heal ourselves.” 

27 - Recreating “the feeling is the prayer” - feeling it, believing it, knowing it is already done. 

28 - VR - What’s always the low hanging fruit? What´s the future of this tech? Not replacing healers - rather, extending their reach. 

29 - Metaverse can work alongside Nature
