What Do Filing Taxes and Creating Your Own Reality Have in Common?

taxes  Inevitability.  Things that cannot be avoided.  No-choice-in-the-matter.  “Must-do’s”

  1. Death
  2. Taxes
  3. Breathing
  4. Creating your own reality

Okay…one of those four doesn’t really belong there.  After all, I’m told that not everyone pays their taxes.

But creating your own reality?  That’s unavoidable.  Your only choice in the matter is this:

Do it unintentionally

or

Do it intentionally

You’ve Always Been a Creator and Always Will Be (Whether You Read This Blog or Not)

Why do I write that?

Because quantum physics tells us that subatomic particles (the “legos” with which all physical matter are constructed) are not actually particles at all.  They are merely potential – until they are observed.

Your expectations command the potential of the quantum field of unformed particles to take a definitive, concrete form (called a “time-space event”). (Click that link to Tweet it)

And, since your beliefs create your expectations, it is accurate to say that your beliefs are creating your material reality.  And this has happened (and will happen) every single second you have been alive.  That is how human beings experience life on Earth.

What’s 3 Hours Out of 696,000 (Give or Take)?

So, given that you’re already creating your reality every moment of your life, why would you not choose to spend a few of the 696,000 (or so) hours you’ll have on Earth learning to create your reality more intentionally? (Click on that link to Tweet it)

All you need do is take control of your beliefs and you’ll be amazed at how much influence you have over the material reality you experience. (Click that link to Tweet it) There’s nothing “magic” or “new age” about it; that’s how the universe works.

How to Solve The Number One Reason You’re Often Disappointed By Your Material Reality

Mirror_baby  Is your material reality a perfect mirror of what’s inside you?  Are your physical manifestations, your life experiences, a reflection of your insides?

Yes.

I know there is good reason to doubt that statement.  Yet, allow me to elaborate.

  1. The quantum field of unformed particles (which are not particles at all, but mere potential until they are observed) has the potential to become, literally, anything.
  2. The quantum field of unformed particles responds to your expectations and forms what you expect.
  3. Your beliefs are the wellspring for all your expectations.
  4. Thus, all of your life experiences are mirror images of your beliefs.  Thus, they are mirror images of what’s  inside you.

“Just the Facts, Ma’am”

I believe I know the number one obstacle to embracing these facts.  And I do use the term “facts” intentionally because quantum physics shows this all to us very plainly.  And quantum physics is the most reliable, accurate body of science ever created.

The obstacle?  For me, the main obstacle stems from all of the unwanted things I experience in my daily life.  Doesn’t embracing these facts mean, then, that I am creating all that unwanted stuff?  That I am “responsible” for all the things that I don’t like?

But I counter that there is no reason to be so hard on ourselves.  Who among us has beliefs which are perfectly aligned with our desires?

While You May Not Believe These Things, Specifically, Don’t They Sound (and Feel) Familiar?

For example, haven’t you (like me) been shown and taught, throughout your life that:

  • To be desirable, you must look like those (airbrushed) models on magazine covers?
  • Money is the root of all evil and it’s greedy and wrong to want (and have) more than you need?
  • You are unacceptably imperfect on many levels, thus how could anyone really accept you on a deep level (and how would you even be worth such acceptance)?
  • Making mistakes is wrong and often means you’re a failure?

Any of those beliefs sound familiar to you?  Need I go on?

Don’t Be Discouraged; Those Facts Hold Your Ticket to Freedom (Rather a Reason to Beat Yourself Up)

Of course we all hold beliefs similar to those.  And they were taught, or imparted, to us by well-intentioned authority figures.  Often not explicitly, but through their actions and attitudes.

So, knowing the facts about how your material world is created, is it any wonder that you (like me) have plenty of life experiences that don’t measure up with your desires? (Click that link to Tweet it) Given the facts, how could we expect anything different?

Yet the good news is that these facts don’t need to lead us to self-incrimination, self-blame, or beating ourselves up.  No – these facts can allow us to focus on the one true solution to achieving our desires.

Which is:

Taking control of our beliefs; raising our beliefs to match our desires.  Changing our beliefs so that they are beliefs of our choosing, which serve  the attainment of our desires.  Because you (and I) have the freedom to do just that – starting right now!

How My Newborn Son’s Near-Death Taught Me that We Can Always Choose Gratitude

baby boy   Seventeen years ago this morning, my (then) wife gave birth to our first son.  He was six weeks premature.

I caught a glimpse of him as the nurse whisked him to the delivery room table where the team gets babies breathing.  My wife and I waited, anxious to hold him.

But we heard no cries from our baby.

More nurses began to gather around the table and assist the doctor.  The team’s activity became more frantic; we could hear the concern in their voices.  Minutes passed, seeming like hours, but still we heard no sounds from our baby.

“What’s wrong?”, we began to imploringly ask.  Tears of fear streaming down our faces.

The delivery team was too occupied with working on our son to answer our questions.  Within moments our baby was rushed out of the delivery room and a nurse explained to us that they were unable to get him breathing and were rushing him to the children’s hospital downtown.

We never got to hold him on his birthday.  Let alone see him.

Wipe Your Eyes (I Just Did) and Keep Reading

My son is seventeen years old today.

He spent over a month in that infant intensive care unit.  I aged a year in that month.  And I’m happy to say (given the alternative) that my son has given me plenty more opportunities to prematurely age since March 27th, 1996. 😉

I’m really proud of the thoughtful, open-minded, curious, intelligent, and mature young man my first-born son has grown into.  I’m grateful I’ve had the opportunity to be his father and mentor him.  He’ll always hold a special place in my heart because he is my first child; he made me a father.

It’s been wonderful to have the perspective of what “might have been”, had things turned out differently during my son’s first month of life.  Especially when he does something that gives me a few more gray hairs.  Yet I’m also grateful that I don’t need something so obvious, to feel grateful for, to find gratitude.

(Finding gratitude for being grateful is a very powerful Mobius band, by the way.  I highly recommend it!) (Click that link to Tweet it)

Did You Know You Have a Super-Power?

Yet my gratitude for my son on his birthday reminds me just how powerful gratitude is.  In a universe where our beliefs create our expectations and our expectations create our material reality, building beliefs powered by gratitude forms extraordinary life experiences. (Click that link to Tweet it)

In fact, as I’ve written in an earlier post, gratitude is so effective it’s like a secret super-power.

Is there any life experience where you can’t uncover some inherent gratitude?  I haven’t found one yet. (Click that Link to Tweet it)

Oh, I’ll be the first to admit that I have plenty of life experiences that are undesirable or unwanted.  Things that would be different were I, literally, writing a script.  But even the worst hold kernels of gratitude; in fact, sometimes the worst of them hold the most powerful seeds of gratitude. (Click that link to Tweet it)

Even if only in retrospect.

A Commitment and Willingness to Try is All it Takes

If I’m committed to finding gratitude in all my life’s circumstances, I’ve found that I can eventually find gratitude in even the really undesirable ones.  Because of my previous experiences with finding it there.

As in, I can tell myself this story:

“Although this event is very frightening, feels bad, and is extremely unwanted, I can believe that I’ll be okay, things happen like they’re supposed to, and, in the long run, I will most likely find hidden blessings in these events.  Even if that takes a while, for now I can choose to feel my feelings, resolve to face my fears, and trust that things will be okay.”

Allow Me to Be Presumptuous for a Moment

Am I presumptuous to tell you that you can always choose to tell yourself a story like that one?  What if you’re dealing with the death of a loved one, learning about a frightening diagnosis, or losing your marriage?

No, I am not being presumptuous; I have faced those events myself and told that story.  Things have not always turned out exactly as I wanted, but that story has always proven prophetic  – I have always been okay in the long run and, also in the long run, I have always found hidden blessings in those undesirable events.

Because, over time and with enough telling, that story has become one of my beliefs.

Given the Choice, Why Wouldn’t You Choose Gratitude Over the Alternative?

The stories you tell are, and will always be, your choice.  Even when the events are horribly unwanted.  Google the names of “Viktor Frankl” and “Louie Zamperini” if you want to learn more about people who used this technique under the most wretched situations imaginable and survived (even thrived) – especially as time passed.

Today, as I feel grateful for the gift of seventeen years spent with my son, I hope you, too, find many things to be grateful for.  And I also hope you join me in my commitment to telling stories about all life’s circumstances that allow you to feel gratitude.

You’ll love the material reality those beliefs you build will create.

And Happy Birthday, son!

How to Fool the Quantum Field and Put Your Desires on the Fast Track

FakeOut  Do you ever  find yourself frustrated because you seem to be missing the mark in an area of your life? (Click that link to Tweet it) Unable to achieve a desired outcome?

One important tip you can remember is that the “thing” or outcome you desire is not what you actually want.  What you actually desire is the feeling that “thing” or outcome will give you.

New Beliefs Equal New Manifestations

You know from my Why Quantum Physicists… series that telling yourself the best-feeling, believable story about your life experiences builds new beliefs for you.  And the quantum field responds to your beliefs when it manifests into your material reality.

Telling yourself the best-feeling, believable stories about all your life’s circumstances, over time, builds and cements new, improved beliefs.  It reforms your habitual neural network of thought.  And since the quantum field is responding to your beliefs (and, more importantly, the expectations those beliefs elicit) to create your physical reality, improving your beliefs will always be your key, long-term, to more fully realizing your dreams and goals. (Click that link to Tweet it)

How To Manifest Even Before Your Beliefs Have Grown to Be Aligned with Your Desires

In the meantime, however, you can “fool” the quantum field and kick-start your alignment with your desires.  What if you, for example, removed the “middle man”?  What if you remove the necessity to have the outcome which will give you the feelings you desire? (Click that link to Tweet it)

What would happen if you decided to feel those desired feelings right now, regardless of whether that “thing” or outcome was actually in your possession at this moment?

I’ll tell you what would happen.  You’d have that “thing” or outcome (whether or not you currently possess it).  Because you’ll have those feelings!

When you “fool” the quantum field in this manner, you always win.

So practice this shortcut today, while you’re also building your new beliefs through the better-feeling, believable stories you’re telling.  You’ll love the results.

Why Creating Your Own Reality is Like Driving a Stick-Shift

Gearshift  We recently got a manual transmission car.  It’s the first one I’ve owned since 1993, although I drove nothing but stick-shifts during my first decade as a driver.

I’ve been reminded, thus, about how much conscious effort it can take to drive a stick-shift (as opposed to driving an automatic transmission).  At first, that is.  And then, with repeated driving, it becomes as automatic as…well, driving an automatic.

Telling New Stories Takes Concerted Effort For a While

Changing your beliefs works the same way.  For a while, telling new, better-feeling stories about all of your life experiences takes a real, conscious effort.  It’s a radical departure, after all, from your old, “auto-pilot” habit of simply accepting conventional wisdom and labeling so much of your life as “bad”.

As you probably know, when you begin driving a clutch (or reacquaint yourself with doing so), you have to pay close attention to your speed and the revving of the engine to ensure you’re shifting at appropriate times.  It’s work.  But, over the course of time, your ears become so accustomed to the engine’s whine that you begin to shift gears without having to consciously think about it.

Taken one step further, the familiar routes you drive (to the grocery store or to work, for example) become so habitual that your muscle memory gets trained to shift subconsciously at certain points along the drive (not accounting for varied traffic density, of course).

You’re Now Driving Your Stick-Shift on Auto-Pilot

You’ve practiced enough, you see, that your gear shifting is now being done unconsciously.  What once took your conscious concentration is now occurring within your subconscious and now takes no more effort than driving your automatic transmission.

You’re Soon Be Creating Your Improved Reality on Auto-Pilot Too

Creating new beliefs and relying on those new beliefs to create a material reality more closely aligned with your desires works the same way.  At first it does take your conscious effort and focus to tell new, better feeling stories which build new beliefs for you.  But…  With practice, your new stories and attending perspectives start to become second-nature – they happen unconsciously after enough practice.  (Click that link to Tweet it)

Your spiritual and mental “muscle memory” has been trained.

See What a Difference Your Perspective Can Make…

man woman  Here’s an interesting exercise in just how important your perspective can be.

Provide punctuation to the following sentence:

“Woman without her man is nothing.”

Our beliefs govern our perspectives.  Or put another way, beliefs govern our expectations.  And, as a follower of this blog and a reader of my books, you know that our expectations command the quantum field to form a material reality that displays the physical embodiment of our beliefs.

So beliefs are vitally important.  And, as you’re learning to do here, reforming your beliefs is the most important thing you will ever do to improve your life and achieve any goal you desire. (Click that link to Tweet it)

How did you punctuate that sentence?

Did you write, “Woman, without her man, is nothing.”?

Or did you write, “Woman: without her, man is nothing.”

Two completely different meanings…from the same set of words.

Why Is He Miserable? Here is the Answer

  Do you know someone miserable?  I do.

He is occasionally short-tempered, often acts arrogantly, and sometimes speaks condescendingly.  He complains a lot; something is almost always wrong and it’s usually someone else’s fault.  By all appearances he is incredibly unhappy.

Can you imagine what it’s like to live inside his head?  What horrid and bad-feeling stories has he told himself for so long that they’ve become his beliefs?  He’s at the bottom of a deep well, buried in negative beliefs, and sees no way out.

In his mind, the only way he can escape his prison of unhappiness is for things outside of himself to conform to his plans.  “If only things would go the way I want them to, I would be okay” or “If only people would treat me the way I want them to, I would be happy”, he constantly thinks.  He is a victim in the truest sense of the word.

He doesn’t have a clue that his beliefs create his material reality – his life.  And he has no idea that he has created his beliefs through his habitual thoughts.  His overriding belief that he needs things outside himself to change (to be happy) is a result of a total lack of understanding about how each of us creates our world.

He could be free of his self-made prison today by taking responsibility for forming new beliefs.  He could form new beliefs by learning to tell himself better stories, which, over time, will form new neural pathways of habitual thought and, thus, create a new universe for him.  Instead he continues to plow the same old ground and, until he makes these changes, will always see the same repetitive, negative, displeasing, “out-of-order” universe.

Like the movie, Groundhog Day, this person is in a rut.  And the only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth of the hole.

Yes, I know this person very well.  Years ago, I used to see him in the mirror each morning.

Do you know this person too?  If you do, do yourself a favor and set yourself free.  The prison was self-created and has only been in your mind.  And if you do know this person, stay tuned to this blog for your parole papers!
