You’ve Been “Channeling” All the Time and Didn’t Even Realize It

  Some of my first forays into learning to create my own reality was through reading “channeled” books by Esther Hicks.  I almost didn’t read Ask and It is Given, though, because Esther Hicks wrote that she was channeling a non-physical entity called Abraham.  Channeling sounded too “out there” for me and, to be honest, the only reason I read it was because Wayne Dyer wrote the forward and I admire Dr. Dyer very much.

I love Ask and It is Given and I’m glad I read it.  Of course, my own writing about creating a reality to better match your desires is inspired by quantum physics, but the Hicks and others who channel (like the Seth books, for example) are, in my experience, teaching accurate things.  At least from what I’ve read thus far.

I Don’t Call it Abraham, But I Access What I Believe to Be the Same Source of Inspiration

Since that time I have come to my own understanding of channeling and I’m here to tell you that I think the concept is something we can address and explain scientifically.  In fact, I believe we all channel every day; channeling is actually not some paranormal or mystical idea.

In my soon-to-be released new book, I specifically teach about fully engaging something psychologists have been writing about since the late 1960’s which I believe explains channeling.  It is called the precognitive moment and the precognitive moment is a measurable fraction of a second between the time we place our awareness on the quantum field of unformed sub-atomic particles and the time our neural patterns of habitual thought kick in and command the quantum field to form our material reality from the quantum field.

It is during this precognitive moment that we have true access to amazing freedom, abundant creativity, and unlimited possibilities because during this fraction of a second we actually have access to the quantum field of unformed particles (and those characteristics I just listed are all qualities of the quantum field).

Stephen King is a Channeler?

I now understand that the precognitive moment is where any creative process is found and it’s the source of all of our creative “juice”.  Artists, writers, thinkers, dreamers, etc. are all tapped into this resource, whether consciously or not.  And I firmly believe that a more practiced access to the quantum field is what is happening for people who “channel”.

In fact, when I am “in the zone” while writing, I often feel that my words are coming to me from a source other than my normal neural patterns of habitual thought – from the precognitive moment.  I get the sensation that my hands have become a conduit for the energy of unlimited potential of the quantum field.  Am I channeling?  I don’t call it that, but I believe I (like anyone else) am experiencing the same phenomenon that channelers are describing.

You Can Learn to Lose Yourself and Find Your Greatest Source of Creativity

And I know you experience this phenomenon too.  Any time you lose yourself in something you are doing, you, too, are fully engaged in the precognitive moment and are also doing what someone might call channeling.  You just probably don’t label it as such.

The best news is that access to the precognitive moment is something that you can strengthen with practice.  I teach you how to do that in Why Quantum Physicists Don’t Get Fat and, also, in my new, soon-to-be-released book.

How to Gain Freedom By Listening to Your Cut Finger

  You know that your beliefs create your expectations, which tell the quantum field what to form in your material reality.

Denial Isn’t a River in Egypt

But being in denial about your feelings and beliefs, pretending they’re something other than what they really are, can actually get you in a lot of trouble with the architecture paradigm.  Don’t ever pretend you feel better than you do or believe something more positive than you do; positive affirmations and statements, positive intentions, and desires for positive outcomes do not always equate with your true beliefs.

Since the quantum field is responding to your true beliefs (and not your surface-level desires) when it manifests your physical reality, you can often fool yourself into thinking you have positive beliefs about something when you really don’t.  So it is very important to acknowledge your feelings and beliefs, just where they are currently, as you also learn not to personalize them.

Practice Makes Perfect

Your beliefs, after all, are only your most practiced, habitual thoughts.  Certainly your beliefs feel 100% true to you; after all, your beliefs were not only bestowed to you by people and groups you trusted and/or allowed to influence you, but also you are intimately familiar with them since you have held them and invested yourself in them for such a long time.

And like your beliefs, your feelings, while very real to you, are not “facts”.  Your feelings are merely your physical responses to one simple criterion: how closely (or how far apart) your current beliefs are matched up with your dreams and desires.  Your feelings, like your beliefs, are true for you (and you alone) and, because of that, shouldn’t be discounted nor denied.  Yet it’s also very important to recognize that your feelings are simply emotional feedback for how closely your beliefs are currently aligning with your aspirations for yourself in this moment.

You are Not Your Cut Finger

As you practice objectifying your beliefs and feelings, by seeing them this way rather than personifying them as you have most likely spent your life doing, you will gain freedom from the power they currently have over your state of being.  And you will gain the freedom to examine them without so much emotional investment.  When you cut your finger, after all, you don’t say, “I am now a sliced, physically imperfect human being”, do you?  You simply say, “I currently have a cut on my finger (but my current state of having a cut is not who I am).”

Similarly, when you have a feeling, like sadness, you are not required to say, “I am sad”.  You can, instead, now say, “I am experiencing sadness in this moment (but sadness is not who I am).”  That second statement still acknowledges your feeling – you’re not in denial nor are you pretending you don’t feel sad.  However, the second statement makes it very clear that you are not your feelings; you are merely experiencing a feeling.  And that distinction, as you’ve learned, makes a world of difference.

How To Know if You Are Currently Being Held Hostage

  Neurologists and neuropsychologists tell us that traumatic events and near-death experiences can have the amazing effect of, essentially, wiping clean the brain’s neural pathways of habitual thought.  Someone who has died and been brought back or someone who has suffered deep emotional trauma (such as the death of an intimate loved one, bankruptcy, divorce, or estrangement from family) has actually been given a gift.  A gift, that is, of a fresh start, a clean slate, where she can now create neural pathways of her choosing instead of her old, practiced habits of thought.

The reason such a clean slate can be called a gift relates to how our neural pathways of habitual thought, which become our beliefs, are formed.  For 99% of us, our beliefs are given to us, or transferred to us, from parents, teachers, and the popular culture.  I don’t believe that anyone has intentionally bestowed self-limiting beliefs upon you, but I am certain about three things:

1.  Humans are inherently flawed and scarred creatures.  Adults were trying to protect you, keep you from being hurt (emotionally and physically), passing along what they have been taught.  Even if an adult is self-actualized, a person is going to make mistakes by passing along, consciously or unconsciously, her limiting beliefs to you.  I’ve done it inadvertently with my own children.

2.  Popular culture is always selling something.  Most dangerous is the predominant aspect of our popular culture which is selling not a hard good, but a belief system – such as the need to constantly consume or the need to fit in and be “cool” (by using their products, of course).  Since popular culture’s primary aim is to sell, it is ultimately unrealistic to expect it to be concerned with instilling uplifting beliefs to us, unless those beliefs happen to further its aim.

3.  Even self-actualized people who are truly interested in your personal growth and success are still limited by what they actually know.  And, until only recently, everyone “knew” that the old paradigms from the first Scientific Revolution were the “truth” and the best belief system we had.  Hence that is what they taught you.

Did You Know You Were Born With a Built-In Thermometer?

  I have explained, of course, in this blog that your beliefs create your expectations, and that your expectations create your physical experiences. Your beliefs are powerful and necessary things for the human experience; they are the internal “drivers” of your expectations that you will now learn to change and, when changed, will, literally, create a new universe for you to see. And your feelings are also powerful and necessary things for the human experience as well – they are actually tools that you can learn to use with great effectiveness.

Your feelings, once de-personalized, are amazing tools for you because they serve as the “thermometers” of your beliefs.  Thermometers are pretty handy tools for knowing whether your body has a fever or not, aren’t they? Your feelings are your built-in thermometers which tell you if your beliefs are currently serving your attainment of your dreams and desires, because they tell you if your beliefs are in congruence with your desires. What a great untapped asset!

In other words, your feelings tell you whether your current belief(s) match up with your desired outcomes. If you feel good about something that is your best sign that your current belief about that is a positive one and is aligned with your desired outcomes. And the opposite is also true. When you feel bad about something you can be pretty sure you hold a current belief about that is negative and/or not aligned with your desired outcomes. As you’ve learned, quantum physics teaches you that your beliefs create your expectations and your expectations create your reality. So paying attention to your feelings, yet taking away their power over your state of being by looking at them objectively, has amazing power! Your feelings are letting you know what your current beliefs are and, thus, give you an opportunity to change those beliefs when you find they are not serving your realization of your goals.

Have You Ever Felt This Way About Your Unrealized Goals?

  The following is a continuation of an excerpt from my upcoming book, to be released in late 2012 or early 2o13.

Eventually Splash recovers from her failure.  And, over the course of the next three years, she repeats this cycle eight times.  Each time, Splash feels a renewed enthusiasm and sense of commitment after finding yet another deep sea swimming instruction book or program.  And, again, each time, Splash wholeheartedly throws herself and all her energy into her efforts.  Each time, Splash unfortunately also finds that she has failed yet again.  And the time spent alone with chocolate ice cream increases with every failed program.

Adding to the very real fact that Splash has never been able to achieve her dream, with each subsequent failure she even begins to doubt her own abilities, her aptitude, and her resolve.  As the failures mount, any time Splash begins a new swimming program, she isn’t just trying to achieve her dreams, her self-worth is now on the line.  She is now also trying to prove to herself that she actually has capability and resourcefulness.  And, because of this, these cycles of defeat have the unfortunate side effect of creating a new, negative self-image for Splash.

After three-plus years of trying, and failing to reach her goal of being a deep-sea swimmer, Splash finally resigns herself to her fate.  But because that dream will never actually go away, her day-to-day life in her fish tank now lacks the same happiness and fulfillment it once did.  In order to not feel completely worthless, Splash is forced to adopt the following beliefs:

1. She will never stop wanting to be a deep-sea swimmer, but she isn’t worthy, on some level, of being one.  Deep-sea swimming must be reserved for the lucky fish who have wealthy parents, who have inside connections with the “right” fish, and are born with the right genes.

2. The books and programs promising to teach fish to be deep sea swimmers are all phony and nothing but alluring and hypnotically attractive lies, written to exploit the naïve dreams of little fish like her.  The only thing those books really accomplish is making these “snake-oil salesfish” authors rich.

3. Because she has desired to be a deep-sea swimmer so badly and worked so hard at it, her failure makes her incredibly angry.  It just isn’t fair that she can’t swim in the deep ocean like other fish do and she now has a bitterness toward life, and its lack of fairness, she’d never had in her younger days.

Have you ever felt the way Splash does?  Have you, too, ever had a dream for yourself – a goal or desire that you wanted more than anything else but have been unable to achieve?  If you’re like most people you have felt this way at some point in your life.

Stay tuned to this blog for more information about how to make those dreams a reality for you…

How Can A Fish Can Teach You About Changing Why You Do Things the Way You Do Them?

  The following is an excerpt from my new book, which I plan to publish in early 2013:

One way I’ve found helpful to envision a paradigm is as a fish tank.  And within this fish tank you are the fish.   Of course, an actual fish would not only have no cause to reflect on why she is in her particular fish tank, but she would also have no ability to do so.  Unless this fish was a character from the Disney movie, Finding Nemo.

But just as paradigms do for you, all the reasons why a fish does the things the way she does them is governed and dictated by the unique fish tank in which she lives.  Why does she swim in the particular routine she always does?  Why does she sleep where and when she does?  Why does she eat where and when she does?  The unique fish tank she inhabits is the reason.

The fish tank in our metaphor is the home to a little fish named Splash, who has a burning desire to become a powerful deep-ocean swimmer.  Given her dream, Splash investigates what she’ll need to do to reform herself and her swimming abilities to achieve her goals.  Splash finds a great book full of expert instruction, written by a champion tuna living in the Atlantic Ocean.  The tuna’s workout program provides Splash with step-by-step instructions which, when followed faithfully, promise to transform any fish into an open-ocean powerhouse.

After a restful night’s sleep, Splash jumps out of her bed because she is so excited to begin the program.  Already brimming with desire to achieve her dreams, Splash bubbles with anticipation because she not only has the willingness to work hard, but now she also has the expert instruction she needs to reach her goal.

But after following the tuna’s program for a month, Splash has only made minor progress toward her goal.  She has worked diligently every day, following all the instructions to the letter, and her intense desire to achieve her goal has never wavered.  Yet she has failed to reach her intended outcome; Splash is still the same little swimmer she was when she started.  In despair, Splash gives up and, with a tear, sadly declares to herself, “I guess I’m just not cut out to be a deep-sea swimmer.”

Splash tries to move on with her life, resigned to her fate.  But, as is usually the case with our deep desires, Splash is never really able to say goodbye to her dreams; no matter how much she tells herself that deep-sea swimming is not her “destiny”, that dream remains.  So when Splash happens across another program, written by a famous porpoise, a month later, she gets excited and rekindles her resolve to achieve her goal.  “I must have had the wrong book last time,” Splash enthusiastically tells herself after reading through the porpoise’s program.

Splash does exactly the same thing this time as the last; powered by her renewed excitement and feverish desire, she once again works diligently each day, follows every one of the porpoise’s instructions exactly, and never doubts that she will reach her goal.  Yet, once again, after a month and a half this time, Splash is forced to accept that she has failed again.  Notice that she now feels like a failure; she’s not just sad, she’s now blaming herself.  And she doesn’t just suffer tears this time.  Splash spends two days holed up in the corner of her fish tank soothing her wounded psyche with chocolate ice cream.

Why Using Quantum Physics Really is as Simple as it Sounds

  How could using quantum physics to lose unwanted weight sound so simple?  If it were truly so simple, wouldn’t more people be doing it?

Actually many are doing it intuitively.  While they might not articulate it, they are fortunate to innately understand and employ these new paradigms from quantum physics already.

But the main reason it sounds to simple is because it is so simple.  And there are three main reasons it is.

  • You’re already using quantum physics, just not to lose unwanted weight and have the body you desire.  You won’t be learning a completely new skill.
  • You’ve simply been using quantum physics in the “wrong direction”.  You’ve been employing these principles against you instead of to help you.
  • The way you use quantum physics to lose unwanted weight is exactly the same way you use it to manifest every other experience you have, every moment of every day.  Now you will simply be using quantum physics intentionally, rather than unconsciously.

When you learn to use quantum physics to lose unwanted weight, what you’re really doing is learning exactly how you’ve already been (and always will be) creating your physical reality.  All you’re going to learn is how you’ve been doing that and how to do it intentionally.  You will  now be in control of the creation of your physical reality, rather than feeling like you’re at the mercy of forces beyond your control.
