Many of us have heard the phrase, “That which you focus on expands.” In other words, “thoughts become things.”
But how many of us actually understand how and why this is true?
Enter quantum physics.
For most of my life, I was caught between science and spirituality. I wanted to believe what the great spiritual teachers were preaching — it felt so right and natural, and it made perfect sense to me. But just when I was on the verge of becoming a believer, my scientific intuition would kick in and make me want to prove it.
Luckily for me, I was raised by a self-proclaimed quantum psychics fanatic for a father.
If you aren’t familiar with quantum mechanics, let me explain. For centuries, scientists believed that the atom was the smallest unit of measure. They believed that all physical matter was made of these atomic particles. But it turns out, there is nothing really physical about anything at all.
Using particle accelerators, physicists have been able to break down the atom into subatomic particles. What they have discovered is that subatomic particles are impulses of information and energy. But what makes them fascinating is they can behave like both a wave and a particle at the same time.
Moreover, subatomic particles have the ability to be in more than one place at the same time, and that’s not all. This impulse, or vibration, of quantum energy becomes either a wave or a particle the moment it is observed by the human mind, and then attracts other impulses of energy that vibrate at the same frequency.
This literally means that we create something and it expands by attracting other things that are similar to it. Pretty astonishing when you think about it, huh?
And, when I realized this, my two worlds of science and spirituality came dancing beautifully together. Suddenly, I understood what the phrase “thoughts become things” actually meant–and why it is so.
We can use the same principles that science uses to create physical reality out of non-physical essence and use it to have, do or be anything we want and experience happiness and fulfillment to any degree we choose.
This knowledge is truly a gift for anyone who recognizes and knows how to apply it to their daily lives. With this knowledge, you can use your thoughts to become the deliberate creator of your own life experiences rather than leaving your life to mere chance, and know why it works.
As quantum physicist Niel Bohr has said, “Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real. If quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet.”
