a covariance matrix of PCI major dimensions) for a treatment condition is significantly different from the pattern structure associated with a control or baseline condition, and (b) altered state of awareness scores are significantly higher for the treatment compared to control or baseline condition (Pekala & Kumar, 1986).
Analysis of the mediums' PCI responses after each condition revealed that scores in the reading condition were statistically significantly higher than those in the control condition with regard to the PCI major dimensions Negative Affect and Altered State of Awareness.
H3: The PCI major variables Negative Affect and Altered State of Awareness will positively correlate with the accuracy of readings for discarnates, after controlling for baseline.
Drivers who are using antidepressants, amphetamines or diet pills, cold or allergy medications, and any other medication that can lead to drowsiness or an altered state of awareness
should discuss their ability to drive with their doctor.
Hypnosis is an altered state of awareness
in which individuals withdraw their peripheral awareness and concentrate on a focal goal.
The tools selected to measure the variables consisted of the awareness subscale of Barrett's (1983) Power as Knowing Participation in Change Test [PKPCT: A] for awareness; the energy factor of the Activation-Deactivation Adjective Check List [AD-ACL: E]; Watson's (1993, 1999) Assessment of Dream Experience [ADE]; Altered Experience and Altered State of Awareness dimensions of the Phenomenology of Consciousness Inventory [modified PCI: AE&AA] for wakefulness; the Field Dynamics Index [FDI] for human field motion; and Cantril's Ladder for WellBeing [CLW-B] well-being.
Wakefulness was measured as a combination of Watson's (1993, 1999) Assessment of Dream Experience [ADE], the energy subscale of Thayer's (1978) AD-ACL, and the altered experience and altered state of awareness subscales of Pekala's (1991) Modified Phenomenology of Consciousness Inventory [PCI].
It includes listening to classical music in an altered state of awareness
, allowing the imagination to come to conscious awareness and sharing these awarenesses with a facilitator/guide.
