The way we look at things
The experiments done with sub atomic particles, such as an electron, have showed us that the very act of observation can alter physical and non-physical realities. Our intention can influence how we experience life through the expectations we create. When we create positive expectations for our desires or what we want in life, we feel more inspired to pursue them.
We just have to cultivate our awareness to stay in present time with our engagements while not losing sight of the bigger picture.
Our challenge is not to become sloppy with our thinking during the time interval between conception and manifestation.
There is always a timeframe from when a thought is conceived to when it manifests in the physical dimension. Because of this, it is easier to allow doubt into our minds. We can talk ourselves out of this doubt by talking ourselves into believing. Doubt and faith share the same wavelength but on opposite sides. The side we put our attention on is the one that gets activated.
We can’t make things go away in our minds, we can only allow something else to become more present.
Let’s further explore the wave particle duality. We have a physical body with a non-physical aspect. We are a bio-energetic structure, with a particle and a wave aspect, or wavicles. We are also conscious of ourselves and our environments, and can learn from the choices we make, making us a unique species.
I love this quote by physicist Max Planck with his perspective on the wave/particle duality:
“When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change.” -
I think this quote is beautiful and highly transformational. For example, do you see the glass half full or half empty? Either way, our intention and attention will influence the way we respond to what we are seeing. We can create a half full experience, which has more abundance in it, or a half empty one, which has more scarcity in it. It is our choice, depending on how we look at it.
This is so powerful as it shows how we can attach a meaning, or interpretation to each and every experience we have in life according to how we choose to see it, or intention.
By assigning meaning to our experiences we create a way to help us explain why things happen, so we can make sense of our behaviors and events, and justify our thoughts and actions.
On the other hand, it can also hold us back if we attach ourselves to interpretations that limit our growth and create a self image, or identity, based on the interpretations we have about ourselves.
Our brain physiology plays a huge role in this process as it creates neuroassociations to every meaning, or interpretation that we give to our experiences. It creates neuropathways which translate into thought patterns that influence the way we feel and act, or react.
We may assign meaning to a number, an animal or an object that represents bad or good luck and change our behavior accordingly. We may assign meaning to the position of the planets, to a passage from the Bible, to the mood of our boss, or even the time someone takes to return our phone call, text or email.
What is really important here is to know that we are the only ones who can give meaning to our experiences, although we can be hugely influenced by what others think and do.
The good news is that to transform our lives we can give new meaning to our experiences, including the ones from the past. So how do we do this?
Here is my version of Plank’s quote:
“When we change the way we see ourselves, we change!”
Powerful, right? Let’s put this perspective into a process. Let’s say that you want to create life transformations. If so, then the following questions may help.
. What kind of person would you like to become?
. What changes do you need to make to become the kind of person you want to be?
. What is the first thing you can do to become that person, what action can you take?
Take your time to answer these questions and refer to your coherence assessment. Your answers will help you craft your Core Intentions.
If you want to transform, start imagining yourself the way you want to be, and then do something about it because in order for us to change we have to transform patterns of behavior and thought.
We have to create new interpretations to replace the old ones. We have to let go of identities and habits that are not compatible with the new version of ourselves. We have to transform the flow and the interaction of our energy streams.
