The Synthesis Effect: Your Direct Path To Personal Power and Transformation by Dr.John Mc Grail is a wonderful book which explains the mind from birth together with strategies to live life fully devoid of avoidable pain, suffering and the negations of stress.

According to Dr.McGrail, the seven deadly memes of class consciousness are an obsession with lack or denial, the crave for control, personal and societal isolation, empiricism or the need to prove everything, the separation of the spiritual and physical realms, conditional love and falsely derived self esteem.

Dr.McGrail explains how the mind works starting with birth. The Id is the set of uncoordinated instinctual trends which operate at birth. The model includes consciousness, the upper subconscious mind and super subconsciousness which houses unconditional love, self-esteem, the spirit, source energy and inner vision. The bottom level is the primal mind which houses the fight or flight phenomenon, fear of falling, fear of loud noises and other irrational fears which people possess either consciously or unconsciously.

Dr.McGrail explains how the process of living is a constant exchange and interchange between quantum energies which represent the product of consciousness interacting with the environment. The resultant is internal energy or thought. The energies of thought produce feelings reflected by emotions. This interplay between thoughts, feelings and emotions produces contrast which lies at the heart of human existence according to the author.

At some point, our thoughts, feelings and emotions give rise to powerful energies we call beliefs. Beliefs are the essential bedrock of our behavior. Once a belief is in place, it frames the perception of truth which governs our individual perception of reality. The law of attraction flows from our belief systems. The energy each of us projects outward is received, amplified and reflected back to us according to the author.

McGrail explains how the mind becomes more flexible and receptive while in a trance. Hypnosis bypasses homeostasis and the normal filtering processes of the mind. With the critical filters out of the way, our mind becomes more child-like and receptive to unlearning the unwanted and re-aligning energies to more constructive endeavors.

Clarifying what readers should take away after reading the book, Dr.McGrail help us erase self doubt so that we can be empowered to act unencumbered by too many restraints. A related concept is to master the art of allowance which is to let other people be the way they are while taking full responsibility for ourselves. Practical enlightenment is the highest state. Individuals in this state transcend the 7 deadly memes to become empowered human beings living in a state of energetic balance and full integration.

The Synthesis Effect explains how to shed life’s deadly negations in favor of energy balance, enlightenment and the full integration of our inner being. A more difficult challenge would be to apply the concepts outlined in this book to group behavior
and dynamics.
