Shaping Your Reality with Quantum Physics
In order to understand the reality, we must first at least have the basic understanding of quantum physics.
What is Quantum Physics?
Quantum physics is the studies of the basic building block of the universe; to be more precise, it is the science that studies the tiny little thing known as quanta.
'The Secret' movie that hit the world back in 2006 has done a pretty good job in explaining the reality with quantum physics. In the movie, it is suggested that reality is not 'really' out there; it is somehow the way the mind see things that constantly shapes the world, along with the workings of the law of attraction- the force that governs the whole universe. Everything that exists in this world vibrates, and through the vibration (frequency) things that alike come together. It explains the phrase "birds of a feather flock together".
The physical world that you experience right now is always in-aligned with what you have in mind. It is the exact print out of your mind. Everything and person that you encounter are first created in your mind through the working of your imagination faculty. You imprint it first on your mind.
Now back to quantum physics. Quantum physics has discovered that everything in this universe is made up of atoms and atoms in turn are made up of sub-atomic particles, which also known as quanta. These sub-atomic particles are nothing but concentration of energy. Note that sub-atomic is not made up of energy, they are energy.
It has become clear that everything in this universe is made up of energy. So when we step into the world of quantum, we could only see big chunks of energy floating around here and there. The only difference is the information that held by each chunk of energy, thus causing each chunk to vibrate at a different frequency. Subsequently, you can feel the difference between this thing and that thing as a different thing.
Quanta (plural for quantum) are packets of subatomic energy that grouped together and one of the weird but interesting facts about quanta is its dualistic nature; they are waves and particles, mass and non-mass, matter and non-matter, all at the same space and time. Nevertheless, everything is interconnected.
Physical and The Quantum World
The dualistic nature of quanta makes it possible that it only appears when being observed or it literally stands out when you look at it. Yes, by just focusing on it. The act of observation brings it into life from emptiness into form. I know this is weird but do you aware that the space that you are living now is not quite empty as it appears.
If you can see through a quantum lenses, you will notice that it is almost completely filled up with waves and energy, which your senses fail to detect. Quanta are literally there and not there both at the same time. Quanta are waves and particles all at the same space and time and your observation somehow determined what it already is.
An observer must exist in order for quanta to become matter because human consciousness (mind) has the power to collapse the pure potential (quanta) into matter. Theoretically, your consciousness is the place or moment where you and the quantum world meet. You step into the quantum world with your consciousness because the mind is always in tune with the energy side of quanta (the mind is at the border for both world).
Eastern mysticism has said that the physical world is a pure illusion and to be free, one must know the truth. Eastern mysticism is quite right on this because the actual world is really the quantum (energy) world.
You see the reality as real because your brain that functions as a 'high speed quantum machine' creates your world through your five basic senses and interprets it much like a hologram where you can navigate in the 3-Dimensional effect. While your brain continues to keep you in the 3D world, your mind is always in contact with the quantum world, simultaneously. Well, that is exactly the working of your subconscious mind power, you can manipulate things that happen within your mind and have it manifested in the real world (or better term, "the illusion-ed plane").
In other words, you are stepping into two worlds at the same time; the physical and the energy or quantum world that always synchronizes with each other. And to be aware of living in two worlds all the time is enlightenment. You break yourself free from illusion!
"Body is nothing more than emptiness, emptiness is nothing more than body. The body is exactly empty, and emptiness is exactly body. The other four aspects of human existence - feeling, thought, will and consciousness - are likewise nothing more than emptiness, and emptiness is nothing more than they are. All things are empty. Nothing is born, nothing dies, nothing is pure, nothing is stained, nothing increases and nothing decreases." ~ Heart Sutra
Changing The Reality
Now, can the mind change or influence the arrangement of quanta before it is collapsed into physical form?
The answer is yes. Physical world is always the effect that you get out of what happens in the energy world, the cause. Change the cause and you change the effect. Change your observation (change your mind) and you change your world. Your mind communicates directly with quanta and the quanta responds precisely and entirely without reluctance or delay to the instructions of your mind.
Observation is the key to defining the wave-particle as a single entity and consciousness alone is responsible for the collapses of the wave-particle. As unbelievable as it might sound, without consciousness, everything would exist only as undefined, potential packets of energy or pure potential. The more consciousness you have the more potential you have to create.
Spiritual Teachers have always said that the world that we live in is just merely an illusion and now science has proven that with the studies of quantum physics. Knowing the truth will set you free.
"The universe is just a concept." - Buddha
"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one." - Albert Einstein
Now it is even clear that things do not just happen accidentally. Everything that happens in your life must bear a reason behind it and the reason is always found within; as within, as without. It is our own thought that create the reality that we are experiencing right now. Note that 'are having' because they change as you change your mind. There is no coincidence and there is also no miracle and if they are any, you are the source of the coincidence and miracles. You attract thing with your thoughts.

I was always frustrated. For everything that troubled me for even how little it could be, I would find my whole world collapsed. So what was wrong with me? How could my world changed in merely a flip of a coin?
