How Beliefs Create Our Human Reality

Updated on April 4, 2018
Nadine May profile image

Nadine’s research for her futuristic novel series about discovering the truth or lies, has led her to insights she shares in her articles.

Reaching Higher States of Consciousness

Which of the two voices is the most dominant manifester of our human reality?

  • How did we, on a global scale, manifest the growing stress, depression, and global problems that are rife in our today’s reality?
  • Are there any solutions to these problems?
  • How do we awaken to our true reality; a world that is born from a new desire that will lead us to unlimited, everlasting fulfillment?
  • Is there a test method to discover the higher states of consciousness for ourselves?
  • How can humanity reach a higher state of consciousness and created a better world for everyone?

Those are the questions I've been exploring for the last forty years through using a storytelling platform what can be read as a visionary or predictive tale, that could become real for the readers.

What is the Nature of Reality?

Since we can never access reality, each individual belief influences the way we see the world and other people. The truths of the humanities come to awareness in dialogues through creative writing.

When I'm looking for dialog for my visionary fiction writing I ask the following questions written about in this article.

  • What are Walk-ins from a parallel universe?

Many authors who write fantasy or science fiction novels must have pondered on these ideas like Ive done. When we type into Google: Walk-ins from a Parallel Universe, there are many articles we can read on this topic, but what would speak to us personally?

From a scientific perception, our human bodies are remarkable and unique collection of subatomic particles. We are a universe of possibilities waiting to be explored – we are quantum energetic beings.

A Walk-in
Some say that A Walk-in is a person whose original soul has departed his or her body and been replaced with a new soul. (The walk-in theory should not be confused with a person being possessed in any way.)
In the original host body, the new walk-in soul usually retains no memory that such an event has just taken place, but it is possible for them to recover fragmented memories of their previous existence or current purpose for incarnating.
Most walk-ins occur during adulthood, but when an earlier exchange does take place it is usually because the walk-in soul needs the experience of childhood for various reasons.

Parallel Universe

People more often experience walking into parallel worlds that are near -- but not quite entirely -- identical to the one they came from.
The most effective weight loss programs will work by telling people to lose weight by imagining themselves in an alternate reality in which they are already thin.

( What we can imagine we can make real)
A door or building may appear where one had never been before, or you might notice something as simple as what happened in my own case. I had lost my golden ring band and thought it must have slipped off my finger while in the shower. ... at least a year later I put on my gardening gloves ( which I have used many times before) when I felt something at the end of one finger. There was my ring...with no apparent explanation.

We each have our own individual window into our world

Everyone Wants to Believe in Something

Our thoughts, Beliefs and Emotions Shape our World. Beliefs come in many shapes and sizes and not all of them can be described as religious. ALL things in our physical world, whether they are events, conditions, and circumstances as well as everything in the entire Universe, all stem from the beliefs we have about them. Many of our beliefs were established in childhood. Body image, whether negative or positive, is shaped by a variety of factors and others come from our perceptions.

What Is the Abstract Nature of Belief?

All beliefs are elusive and intangible. We cannot “touch” a belief but it certainly has a way of touching us. Our beliefs modify the way we think, how we act and feel. Spirituality, our thoughts, emotions, and success or lack of success in life are all closely intertwined and interconnected.

It was during the late seventies – after a very profound experience of a personal nature – that I began my search for the deeper meaning of life. I was seeking answers to some complex and unanswerable questions pertaining to life in general. I first began that search in structured religion, but then after a time I discovered Quantum Physics & Spirituality.

My spiritual mind sought the truth and so I spend many, many lonely nights pondering and wondering.

Quantum Physics & Quantum Mechanics

How it is that Quantum Physics more specifically Quantum Mechanics determines the outcomes in our life, the world around us as well as things we can't even see yet? (through mind over matter)

Quantum Physics is the study of how, what and why everything that makes up the universe as well as everything in it, both the seen as well as the unseen, is derived and how everything in the tangible world comes into existence. Quantum Physics analyzes things that are experienced in life in various forms and traces them back to where they originated and were derived from. It reveals the simplicity of our conscious as well as our unconscious and unintentional Manifestations.(through mind over matter)

Quantum Mechanics is an in depth study of the building blocks of the ENTIRE Universe, the SEEN and the UNSEEN.

The Science of Pure Energy or Light

We’ve all been conditioned into “believing” that we’re just a tiny speck in the macrocosm not so?

New science today accepts that the universe, including us, is made up of pure energy, separate from matter, and that the universe is also made of pure energy and that atoms are continuously giving off, and absorbing, light and energy, all the time.

Scientists have long been able to convert matter to energy; the most spectacular example is a nuclear explosion. Now physicists have succeeded in doing the opposite; converting energy in the form of light into matter – in this experiment, electrons and their anti-matter equivalent, positrons.

Why Is Our Reality a Matter Universe?

An extraordinary theory that has been getting credit lately is one that suggests our own universe is actually a hologram. If this is true, then that means that the universe as we know it may be the result of processes happening on some other surface or plane. Who knows? The following great quotes confirm for me that there is a logical explanation for this belief phenomenon, or is it some kind of secret cosmic mystery?

  • Whatever your mind can conceive and can believe, it can achieve. ~ Napoleon Hill
  • Whatever we think about and think about we bring about. ~ John Demartini
  • Whether you think you can or can’t either way you are right. ~ Henry Ford

Everything that exists whether in nature, or sounds, colors, oxygen, the wind, thoughts, emotions we experience. The chair we are sitting in, our house, car, our physical body, the stars, our ability to see, hear, smell, etc. all exist only as a result of this very same energy.

The Copenhagen Interpretation revealed that energy is waves and when ATTENTION is placed on it, all other probabilities collapse (wave forms) and a "particle" (matter) is formed.

The energy being studied took form immediately based on the thoughts and beliefs of the scientist who was observing it!

Is Having a Personal Experience Enough for Us to Awaken?

I feel that Music is perhaps the last conduit for elevating the masses into a higher consciousness.

John Lennon In his song - “God is a concept by which we measure our pain.” mentions many ideologies and icons he doesn’t “believe” in

“I just believe in me... and that reality.” These are profoundly insightful words from someone who clearly understood the illusions that blind and bind us.

Kathy's Song was written by Paul Simon and performed by Simon and Garfunkel “I stand alone without beliefs— the only truth I know is you.”

At the Deepest Level We Are All Free Spirits

We are entitled to believe in what we want, but we should understand that beliefs are not the same as truth. Beliefs are malleable and can change over time. Truth is universal and will withstand the ages. Once surrendered to an external belief system, we’re honor-bound to serve it.

Religion for me is like all faiths, they preach peace and love as they march their children to war. There is such hypocrisy and deceit behind the velvet pulpits of shame that I would rather call myself an atheist.

Spirituality is also a belief system albeit a personal one. It does not suggest our belief is the right one or the only one. We can separate our self from the spectacle that surrounds us externally. That is called living with an inner-knowing and an inner-peace.

Today much beyond that is a real reach in my world, as the author I now understand that what we call belief is merely a presumption, opinion or an understanding.

Thanks for reading my ramblings

      Bobby I must have missed this comment from you. Yes the IAM that I AM is a true statement. We are truly living in existing times while having a human experience. For many these times are very difficult, so its my intent to stir sleeping souls as much as I can.

      Many thanks for your comment and suggestions. I do not follow anyone like Lord Metatron and Archangel Michael but yes indeed I have heard about these channels. They have been around for many years but I've learned to rather follow my own inner guidance. Many of us are already moving into a "new earth reality" but due to the shaking and turmoil on several vibrational levels, most light workers their job is to stay "awake" and grounded through at all.

      Nadine, re: your conversation with Lady G., why are we not waking up from this hologram? We are, it is called the Ascension and it occurred in December 2012 with our entry into the Aquarian Age. Those who know a lot more about it than I do say it will take about 300 years for humanity to fully wake up and get with the program. For more information, I suggest these for reliable references: Earth-Keeper Chronicles, Lightworker.org, and any others who keep with the teachings of Lord Metatron and Archangel Michael.

      Hologram is right Nadine. I am writing my book on my life and well the next couple o chapters I am about to start on really makes it look like we are in some hologram and when we do pass, we are the ones who do wake up from this dream. Now I am beginning to ask why did I choose these things or did someone really get into the mix just to have some fun with my program. See my last hub chapter 12

      Lady Guinevere your re-incarnation belief, might very well also be a program. I do for now go along with it, since it makes mentally sense, but lately so much has come up for me that I even start to question things like: If there is no such thing as time, or if our world is a hologram, a program, then..why are we not waking up from this dream like state? Glad you had more success on Bubblews with your article. At least you got paid for it a lot faster!

      I am glad that you found it Nadine. It is a thought rendering show.

      I have the book by Caroline Myss about Sacred Contracts. Though some of it I could not comprehend it was interesting. I think more of re-incarnations and the learning process of the specific lives that we choose to learn them from. I also had a NDE about all of live and why we are here and there and in other planes and the people that we are with almost all of the time. I am beginning to understand about the programming of us and of this whole planet. As in my hub that I wrote about it, we are all programmed for natural things, like sex and reproduction...even down to the plants and insects here. Now in my NDE those who repeatedly failed at their lessons they were to learn or became overly dark (such as serial-killers and people like that) they were taken to another part of the building that we all gather back into to get re-acquainted with home. They were re-programmed. I had that article on here but got such negativity that I put it on Bubblews, which got some views and no negativity there.

      I feel that most people know if they have not yet followed or worked on their sacred contracts as you called them. When a person comes to me with that fear, I asked them what makes them truly happy. My intent would be to help the person removing their fear of not being good enough. Again any belief system can hinder a person's growth.

      somethingblue, I don't disagree with you on your concept of sacred contracts as the way you live your life because I think that is an important part of it. Maybe the example I used was not a good one. Let's say that you had a sacred contract for anything, doctor, teacher, even a good housewife and mother, but you didn't do it because you chose to party your life away and never accomplished what you came here for. That would definitely call for a redo.

      Caroline Myss has some good thoughts on sacred contracts, especially on the establishment of this country, i.e. she says that George Washington had a sacred contract to lead the colonial army to victory. If he had not fulfilled that contract , he would have paid dearly for it as a soul later.

      Great reply Daniel. It took me forty years to follow my dream, my passion, which was to paint stories with words. I think that our Soul will always find a way to make us follow our Soul Purpose by creating a "passion" for something, no matter what obstacles we have to encounter. The lessons we learned make us what we are today.

      Dear Kevin thanks for reading my hub. When I do research for my novels I always need to intellectualize my questions. This is so I can write the dialog between my characters. While writing fiction its important for me to, at the same time, set the scene so to speak. Music was therefore an important aspect, so I can incorporate the feelings that comes up during any kind of debate. As I mentioned: the last conduit for elevating the masses into a higher consciousness is through music.

      Many thanks for that explanation. I pondered over that. My parents discouraged me to follow any career to do with writing, because - being a dyslexic_ they ( when I was a teenager and young adult) ) knew it would just hurt me and stimulate my already lack of self esteem. It took me forty years to follow my dream, which was to paint a story with words.

      Your first paragraph brought to mind a show that was on a few or many years ago called Sliders. Have you ever seen that one? It is about a couple of people that got together and they opened a portal to many other parallel Universes. They got stuck going to many ones trying to find their way back to the one that they came from. It was very interesting and I loved watching the show. It opened your mind to other possibilities.

      I think that I visited a parallel universe once. It lasted about 10 minutes and it was really strange to have experienced it.

      Interesting Mizbeabbers, as I too accept the contract but see it more in spiritual terms rather than life choices. For instance whether you become a doctor, lawyer of school teacher matters not at all, what my conception of the contract is the way you live your life.

      The contract to me is if you learn the lesson in your life, whether it is paying off a past Karmic debt, learning to love unconditionally, accepting God into your life experience, becoming tolerant of others sexual choices, becoming a father or mother and raising children or things of that type of nature.

      I don't think the contract can be broken, unless you commit suicide, which to me is not an option no matter how bad life gets. Having been to the bottom and climbed back to the top I can tell you, from experience that life teaches you lesson everyday, the point is if you're paying attention to them.

      To The Examiner-1 speaking of paying attention the songs are how the rules of music are a spiritual tool designed to awaken your soul to the infinite song of the Universe.

      I endorse your statement that "beliefs modify the way we think, how we act and feel." I've spent the last week with a relative's teenager who has completely different values than I do and thus processes the world very differently. Where I see opportunity for openness and tolerance, his upbringing has unfortunately taught him to turn away, shame those who are different, and hate the unknown. Religion plays so much a part of our value systems and can be either a negative or positive filter in how we process the world.

      Doris James-MizBejabbers

      Oh, sure, somethingblue, I'll be glad to. It is a matter of karma. My spiritual belief system says that before we are born, our soul makes a sacred contract with God to live a certain life path. If you break a sacred contract, you will have to do it all over again. Some people who do not believe in reincarnation or karma still believe in "what goes around comes around."

      An example of breaking a sacred contract would be allowing a parent to talk you into becoming a doctor because doctors make a lot of money and have status. Instead you had made a contract to be an elementary school teacher, but you became a doctor instead.

      I realize that some religions don't believe in this, so if it is not in your belief system, just ignore it. (For the record, I still believe in Christ, but not in the fundamentalist Christian way.)

      I think we lost "living in the mind of God" in Atlantis and we are working our way back. The Ascension is real to some of us, but others are oblivious to its happening. While there is the potential for us to create greater things by thinking greater thoughts, two things may stand in our way (1) the dweller on the threshold, who is the naysayer and prevents our thoughts from coming into being and (2) our sacred contract. In the case of number (2), our subconscious works to tell our conscious mind that isn't the path we should take. We can override the sacred contract and get what we want now anyway, but it is a "buy now, pay later" deal for us. This is another great hub, Nadine. namaste! Voted up and shared.

      Of course we are living in the mind of God, what other answer could be true?

      Music is the first conduit to elevating mankind to the consciousness of God.

      In the book The Infinite Harmony written by Michael Hayes (subsequently banned in America), published in 1994 he describes how music theory is the bridge between science and religion.

      He shows beyond a reasonable doubt that the rules that govern music also proportionally define particle physics and molecular biology (our DNA).

      Sun Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun

      Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do

      1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8/1

      Coincidence, hardly!

      Consider that God sang the Universe into existence and all the laws of the Universe use music as its basic theory and you begin to comprehend how the rules of music are inter-woven into the fabric of space and time.

      Then consider how musicians all seem to gain a spiritual insight the rest of us lack and you will then begin to recognize why it is such a powerful spiritual tool.

      Another great article . . . keep on trucking, girl!
