It's All About Energy
Everything is Energy
In fifth grade, our class learned something I have never forgotten. Our teacher informed us that in our simplest form, we are all energy. On that day we learned everything is energy vibrating at a different frequency. Learning my desk and I were made of the same thing is a fact that never left my brain and made me curious to know more. Over the years, I learned of quantum physics and even though most of the material is over my head, one of the main theories I find compelling is the “observer effect.”
According to Wikipedia: In physics, the term observer effect refers to changes that the act of observation will make on the phenomenon being observed. If the observer effect is correct, then the way we think and feel about an observable occurrence will have an effect on its outcome, as thoughts and feelings are also forms of energy.
In many of his books, Dr. Deepak Chopra, speaks of intention(desire with a purpose). He feels it is a force in nature just as much as any other force, such as electromagnetism. According to Dr. Chopra, “Intention orchestrates its own fulfillment. If you want intention to work for you, you have to have clarity about your intended outcome. You must feel it, taste it, smell it, be it.” All of these educated observations point to the fact that we actually do create our own reality. If we focus our thoughts and feeling on what we don’t have, like not enough money or a lack of love in our lives, does this mean our thoughts are creating the very lack on which we focus? If we actually feel the relaxed and peaceful feeling of having financial security, will we create a new financial reality for ourselves?
“You are what your deepest desire is.
As your desire is, so is your intention.
As your intention is, so is your will.
As your will is, so is your deed.
As your deed is, so is your destiny.”
There are so many books about the power of a positive attitude. Maybe quantum physics proves why it actually works. I know optimists and pessimists, and in my observations, their lives go accordingly. Perhaps the pessimist expects things to go wrong because his attitude creates the negative reality he has come to expect.
It has become my routine to wake each morning in gratitude and focus on my blessings and the good things in my life. Admittedly, it is also my nature to see what I need and focus on it as well. It seems much more natural to think of what I don’t have and wish I had it than it does to envision having everything I need. As someone who buys into the observer effect, I work daily on retraining my way of thinking. If developing a positive attitude and focusing on the life we envision for ourselves is something that can actually change our life’s outcome, what do we have to lose if we give it a try?
