So much has been written about the Law of Attraction, especially since the publishing of “The Secret” in 2006. Basically, the Law of Attraction is the belief that there is power in what you say and think. So if you think negative thoughts, you will attract negative energy, and conversely positive thoughts will attract positive energy. There really is nothing new, or new age about the concept. Many books have been published in the last 100 years extolling the power of positive thinking but knowledge of this power started long before the 20th century.
Ask and ye shall receive. Jesus
What you think, you become. Buddha
In my last post I asked you to write a positive affirmation and carry it with you, and repeat it to yourself frequently. Did you do it? Or are your negative thoughts influencing you?
- What’s the point?
- I’ve done this before
- Nothing is going to come of it
For now I want you to consider this. What if reality and how we perceive reality are actually two different things. What if there was real proof that the law of attraction, the power of thought, actually works?
Well science, in the form of quantum physics, is finally catching up with what the ancient mystics have always known, that reality is a projection of the mind. There is something in quantum physics called String Theory and the Uncertainty Principal (or Heisenberg Principal). I won’t dare try to explain it in scientific terms, there’s lots of information on the Internet that would do that much better than I ever could. But essentially Heisenberg discovered that the observation of a system in quantum mechanics disturbs the system enough that you can’t know everything about the system. The more precisely you measure the position of a particle, for example, the less it’s possible to precisely measure the particle’s momentum. What???
How does that play out in the law of attraction, you’re wondering? Heisenberg proved that by simply observing something (thinking about it) you effect the outcome.
Watch this video and see what I’m talking about. It’s only about 11 minutes but if you want to zero in specifically on the Uncertainty Principal zip the video to 4:44 minutes and wait to have your mind blown.
That should set you scrambling to get your sticky pad and start cranking out those affirmations I describe in my last post. Just by writing an affirmation and thinking about it, you are creating the energy that effects it.
What are you waiting for?
