“A sizable body of research exploring the nature of consciousness, carried on for more than thirty years in prestigious scientific institutions around the world, shows that thoughts are capable of affecting everything from the simplest machines to the most complex living beings. This evidence suggests that human thoughts and intentions are an actual physical “something” with astonishing power to change our world. Every thought we have is tangible energy with the power to transform. A thought is not only a thing; a thought is a thing that influences other things.”
It has been well documented that directed thoughts can affect one’s own body in numerous ways. Thoughts have also been shown to alter some biological processes in another person including gross motor movements, and those of the heart, eye, brain and respiratory system. A number of researchers have demonstrated that human intention can affect a variety of other living systems such as bacteria, mice, cats and dogs. It has even been demonstrated that human thought can affect the direction in which fish swim.
Quantum physics has recently shown that living things are constant transmitters and receivers of measurable energy. Thoughts are bundles of electromagnetic energy. New models of consciousness depict it as being able to move beyond physical boundaries. “Intention appears to be something akin to a tuning fork, causing the tuning forks of other things in the universe to resonate at the same frequency” McTaggart writes.
Wild, I know. It goes against the definition of reality that most of us grew up with. But….what if it IS true?
This is at the basis for some belief systems made popular by such things as The Law of Attraction (LOA) and The Secret. All too often, this concept has been exploited promising anybody can get rich and famous, find the person of their dreams, or get skinny instantly and effortlessly just by thinking the right thoughts. All you have to do is think it, and *POOF*. I recently read an analogy I liked where this philosophy was compared to a universal vending machine. Not quite that simple or direct.
However, let’s assume for a minute that there is some truth to this. If you are constantly thinking about how you do not have enough money and about all the bills that just keep piling up, how do you think these thoughts are going to influence your reality if they indeed do even a little bit? If you worry unrelentingly about getting cancer and freak out at every little sign, what kind of energy are these thoughts emitting and subjecting your body to, ya think? Conversely, if the money is tight, but you focus on your competence and trust in yourself to handle the situation and the abundance that is present in your life otherwise, how is this going to influence your reality?
It is part of our culture and seen as being responsible and mature to worry. I know, in my own experience, not worrying felt so foreign to me at first I felt like I was sticking my head in the sand and irresponsibly just deluding myself. I am not advocating anyone carelessly throw caution to the wind and totally ignore possible consequences…just do not dwell on and feed the negative ones. Give your thoughts and energy to the positive. It is just as easy. Why not? Besides possibly affecting the outcome, it makes the experience so much more pleasant as you move through it.
