Welcome to the WHOLISTIC LIVING PODCAST: Episode 44
Aligning Body, Mind, and Soul with Elena Bensonoff



When you fully immerse yourself in the present moment and observe the nature of your being, you may notice an extraordinary sense of vastness, stillness, and peace. 

This gentle experience is an awareness of your consciousness.

Your consciousness connects you to the infinite universe, space, and time. It is the true *you.* (Discover more foundational consciousness knowledge in my Wholistic Guide To Consciousness!)

Non-local consciousness is the idea that consciousness is not limited to individual brains or bodies but is instead a field of energy that is interconnected and shared by all beings.

Scientific evidence of non-local consciousness is a major breakthrough because it confirms that we are all connected to each other on a deep level. Proof that our thoughts and actions can have an impact on others, even if we are not physically interacting, can help the world become more compassionate and unified in love.

In this blog, you’ll discover:

  • A fascinating summary of scientific research supporting the existence of non-local consciousness
  • 10 examples of non-local consciousness (there’s a good chance you’ve experienced at least 1!)
  • How you can join a flourishing community of consciousness explorers



Scientific Summary Of Non-Local Consciousness

There is no scientific consensus on whether or not non-local consciousness exists, but there is some compelling evidence to support the idea.

To understand non-local consciousness, we must first address the concept of non-locality. In the world of quantum theory, non-locality is when nearby electrodes share electrical signals with the ability to affect far-away electrodes. (1) This idea connects to a bigger concept in quantum theory where objects seem to instantly know about each other's conditions, even if they're really far apart. It's like the universe plans how particles should be arranged, even across huge distances like billions of light-years. (2)

The concept of non-locality transcends disciplinary boundaries, showing up in diverse fields including physics, biology, and neuroscience. Scientists have published studies in respected science and medical journals that together suggest something interesting: consciousness might not be limited to a physical body and doesn’t cease to exist upon physical death. (3)

A study out of the University of California was just published last month showing that when electrical signals passed between neighboring electrodes, they also affected non-neighboring electrodes. This is evidence of non-locality – an important step in creating new devices that can mimic brain function. (1)

There are parallels between the concept of non-local consciousness and quantum entanglement in physics. Entanglement means that the quantum states of particles aren’t independent but part of a system. However, many neuroscientists remain unconvinced by the connection between quantum theory and the brain.

Scientists with a materialistic worldview would argue that the conscious 'you,' the one experiencing things, is simply a side effect of the brain – a result of the brain producing consciousness similar to the way endocrine glands produce hormones. The physicalist theory suggests that the brain is doing its job and when the brain no longer functions – consciousness ends. (4)

One of the most illuminating scientific resources out there with abundant discussion on nonlocality is this 2018 review paper published in the American Psychologist by Etzel Cardeña. Some highlights include: (5)

  • Physicist Bernard d’Espagnat (1979-2006) concluded that the world is not made of separate “material” objects embedded in space-time, but of a nonseparable, indivisible field, a “veiled reality” that consciousness interacts with.
  • Princeton physics philosopher Hans Halvorson (2015) concluded that a form of superentanglement links every aspect of everything in the universe.
  • Scientific American journalist George Musser (2015) supported a nonlocal interpretation of quantum mechanics and considered space “a doomed concept.”

The implications of non-local consciousness include that we are all part of something much larger than ourselves and that our actions have a ripple effect that can be felt by others. This can be a powerful motivator to live life to the fullest, stay heart-centered, and look out for the wellbeing of the collective.

The scientific study of consciousness is still in its early stages, and we are only beginning to understand the right questions to ask. It will be interesting to see what new studies come out in the next 5 years or so as more researchers gain the resources and funding to explore non-local consciousness further. (6)



10 Examples Of Non-Local Consciousness 

In many ways, non-local consciousness is an alternative framework to explain the unexplainable. There are countless remarkable instances where consciousness seems to extend beyond the physical brain and body across space and time.

Here are 10 examples of non-local consciousness. Perhaps you’ve experienced at least one!

  1. Telepathy: Telepathy involves sending thoughts or feelings directly from one person's mind to another's, without using words or senses. In non-local consciousness, telepathy could indicate that our minds can connect and share information beyond what we can see or hear.
  2. Precognition: Precognition is like seeing the future before it happens. With non-local consciousness, it's as if our minds can reach into time and gather information about what's coming from an all-knowing oracle before an event actually occurs.
  3. Remote Viewing: Imagine being able to "see" things that are far away, even if you're not physically there. This is remote viewing. Non-local consciousness suggests that our minds might be able to stretch out and "see" things beyond the reach of our senses.
  4. Near-Death Experiences (NDEs): During near-death experiences, people sometimes report leaving their body and can accurately report details about their physical environment even though they were unconscious (like the lights in an operating room). Non-local consciousness proposes it is possible to experience things beyond what our physical senses can detect. There are already 13 million recorded NDEs and the number will rapidly increase thanks to more sophisticated medical resuscitation resources. (7)
  5. Quantum Entanglement: Quantum entanglement is when tiny particles become connected in a way that their actions depend on each other, no matter how far apart they are. Non-local consciousness hints that our minds can have a similar connection, allowing us to instantly "know" things beyond what our regular senses tell us.
  6. Meditative Experiences: Meditation can bring a feeling of being connected to everything around us. Non-local consciousness suggests that this feeling might come from our minds expanding beyond our individual selves, letting us experience a greater sense of unity with the collective consciousness.
  7. Shared Dreams and Experiences: Imagine having the same dreams as someone else, or experiencing the same thing at the same time as a friend or loved one, even when you're far apart. Non-local consciousness suggests that our minds might be linked in a way that lets us share experiences or visions beyond the limits of space.
  8. Innate Knowledge: Innate knowledge is like knowing something without being taught. Non-local consciousness proposes that our minds can access information beyond what we've learned, allowing us to suddenly understand things we never studied before – like a foreign language. For example, in 400 BC, Plato mentions priestesses on the Island of Delos who spoke “in tongues.” (6)
  9. Perceiving Distant Information: With non-local consciousness, it's like having a mental "radar" that can pick up information from far away, even if it's not something we can see or hear with our regular senses. This concept was even used in a secret government program for gathering information. Multiple meta-analyses of public domain and declassified experiments of this type have been conducted, and the results showed highly positive evidence in favor of a genuine phenomenon. (6)
  10. Animal and Plant Consciousness: Non-local consciousness isn't limited to humans. Animals and plants have consciousness that goes beyond their physical bodies or organisms, allowing them to connect and communicate in ways that we're still trying to understand. If you have ever lost a dear family pet, I’m sure you will agree they can send you signs or dreams from beyond the physical realm.

Have you personally experienced any of these phenomena? Occurrences like these continue to spark curiosity and debate in the field of consciousness studies. The matrices for these experiences could not be contained in the brain, so must be stored in some kind of immaterial field or in the field of non-local consciousness. (8)

Even if we can’t definitively prove that consciousness is non-local, if we can learn more about the non-local aspects of consciousness, it would have a transformative impact on our world.
