Our thoughts and feelings change the world around us, whether we’re aware of it or not. We get lots of little clues this is happening when we pay attention; we’ve all had days when we can’t find our car keys because they aren’t where we know we put them, or we discover one sock is missing from our load of clothing that just came out of the dryer. At times like these, it can feel like “Shift Happens! #@$! “
The good news is that we don’t need to suffer from discordant thoughts and feelings! We can learn how to minimize the frustrating reality shifts, and learn to make our favorite dreams come true.
1. Pay Attention
The world seems full of whatever we focus our attention on. When you’re thinking of buying a new car, you see the kind of car you’re thinking of almost everywhere you go. Be sure to start looking for evidence that indicates your wishes and prayers are being answered. Seeing the world with a Zen “beginner’s mind” is the key to paying attention properly in this present moment, right here, right now. Meditating daily helps you make time each day to quiet inner self talk and become increasingly mindful and attentive.
Being grateful for what we have is the best way to receive more of what we most enjoy. Expressing appreciation and thanks feels good and helps us continue to pay attention to what we most love, allowing more good experiences to come our way. When making a few moments each day to review what you’re grateful for, be sure to truly feel thankful as an emotion that builds and increases inside you with every breath you take.
3. Review the Scientific Studies
Reproducible, double-blind scientific studies conducted by doctors in real-life hospital situations are now proving that distant healing through prayer and meditation improves the health of those being prayed for. The wishes and prayers have come from people with a wide range of beliefs, indicating that we are all non-locally connected and can influence physical reality from great distances.
4. Revise Your Assumptions
The old assumptions that we can be objective observers without influencing what we’re watching or having any long-distance effects have been scientifically disproved with recent quantum physics experiments. We now know that we can only make predictions in terms of probabilities, and that we can’t disregard consciousness or spirit simply because we can’t measure those things. Many of our views of who we are and how we ought to live can change in very positive ways as we take time for reflection, meditation, and reviewing what we believe to be true about ourselves and the multiverse we live in.
5. Energize Yourself
Take a few minutes to reverse the damage stress causes to your body every day. Breathe love in, feeling it in your heart, and recall some of your favorite memories. These feelings of Love will energize you tremendously, which increases the probability that you will experience enjoyable reality shifts. You can dowse your energy field and the energy fields around others to see how energized people are using dowsing rods, metal coat hangers, or even your hands.
6. Reverse Negative Self-Talk
Our inner self-talk is a running dialogue with the universe. When self-talk consists of put-downs and negativity, it directly interferes with anything good we wish to observe. We can minimize negative self-talk by first quieting the mind in order to hear what kinds of self talk are going on, and then “flipping” each negative statement we notice around, making positive affirmations out of reversed statements. Posting these affirmations and reading them every day is a powerful way to remove the destructive interference with personalized affirmations.
7. Feel Non-Locally Interconnected
Just as quantum particles are found to be intimately interconnected with twin particles located great distances away, we also are non-locally interconnected with everything and everyone we love. Though you may sometimes feel lonely, the truth is that you are never alone, isolated, or cut off from everyone. You are connected with everyone and everything else in the multiverse that you affect All That Is.
8. Visualize What You Desire
Visualize what you most desire to experience in your life–all your favorite, wildest dreams–with the idea in mind that we actually create reality as we observe it. As we think and feel, so we become. One of the best ways to see wishes come true is to visualize and feel them clearly with all your heart, and then let them go, much as Jane and Michael Banks, the children in the movie “Mary Poppins,” do after singing a poem about what they wish for in a nanny.
9. Let Go of Wishes
The best way to make our favorite dreams come true after we’ve visualized them is to release them. This gives them the degrees of freedom required to exist unobserved as pure energy waves, before our observation collapses the wave functions and one possibility materializes. Returning to the example of making wishes from the movie, “Mary Poppins,” Jane and Michael Banks’ father throws their wish list of qualities into the fireplace, representing the necessary step of letting go–which floats up the chimney to the clouds where Mary Poppins finds and responds to it.
10. Choose Your Attitude
The most important thing to remember when you face challenges or seemingly impossible situations is to remember that reality can shift! You can choose to replace your feelings of stress, fear, or anger and breathe Love. Choose to let the wise, timeless part of you do the thinking… from your heart. The more you practice this meditation of “thinking with your heart,” the easier it will be, and the more wonderful reality shifts you’ll experience!
