Our knowledge of ancient cultures invariably includes stories of how they organised their lives based on a Spiritual belief in a higher power, which they called upon to achieve their goals, needs and desires. Some cultures still in existence today have carried on with the same ancient traditions of prayer, ritual and creation.
Gregg Braden, a space engineer, was led to question our spiritual past and left his job to begin a quest to travel the world finding surviving ancient cultures to study, including monks in the Himalayas. The monks taught him the missing original knowledge of how to pray – in addition to using your words and imagination to describe what you want, it is essential to invoke the associated feelings and emotions, as if you have it already. One elder showed him the original versions of the bible including unknown books containing this hidden secret. Another culture invited Gregg to a rain dance ritual , a highly intense positive focus event, which was followed by the needed downpour. They had no proof of their beliefs other than their own validating experiences.
Today, modern societies have lost this powerful knowledge passed down through the generations in our surviving ancient cultures. However, religious and spiritual beliefs are still based on faith, which means “trusting in something you cannot explicitly prove.” I am told that it says somewhere in the bible that humanity should not seek to prove the existence of God as attempts would always fail, simply because humankind did not have the mental capacity to understand the answer. But do we have the intellectual capacity today to understand these goal achievement, creation techniques used by ancient cultures?
In our scientific age, lack of proof has meant that practical, analytical, evidenced based thinkers have considered Spirituality to be at odds with their scientific beliefs, being little more than wishful thinking. However, in recent times, a new science called Quantum Physics has closed that gap. Science now both explains Spiritual beliefs, and also agrees with them. Spiritual beliefs have become science that we simply didn’t understand.
At the turn of the 20th century scientists assumed they had uncovered all the basic fundamental laws and rules that governed our existence. Then physicists like Heisenberg, Max Planck, Niels Bohr and Albert Einstein began to study particles using newer technologies, and they discovered a sub-atomic world of physics that involved very small, mysterious units of matter and energy. This new discovery called Quantum Physics left them bewildered and unable to fully explain the phenomena they witnessed before their eyes. So much so that Einstein called it “spooky science.”
The more that is learned about quantum physics, the more we discover its findings validate many positive empowering ancient spiritual and religious teachings, and give scientific support for the existence of an all pervading organised intelligence compatible with the concept of god or creator. We now have some scientific explanations for our true creative abilities, consciousness, ‘God’, and the existence of our spiritual reality.
World-renowned quantum physicist Michio Kaku, announced to the world recently that he now believes in the existence of God because the universe shows evidence that it was designed by an intelligent creator.
Quantum Physics is the study of the behavior of matter and energy at the molecular, atomic, nuclear, and even smaller microscopic levels. Scientists discovered that the laws of Classical Physics governing macroscopic (large) objects do not function the same in such small realms. Where Classical Physics describes the movement of sufficiently big particles, everything is deterministic (predictable), but we can only determine ‘probabilities’ for the movement of the very small particles studied in Quantum Physics.
Quarks, the smallest of all known particles, are mathematically theorized to contain a near empty void of vibrating waves of light energy. It is now understood that the frequency (or vibration) of these waves of energy will determine the particular material objects that we observe from our physical (three-dimensional) perspective.
The Observer Effect
In traditional physics, specific objects exist in a specific place at a specific time. But in the mysterious quantum realm, objects instead exist as a wave in the realm of probability. It is now mathematically proven that the probability for the state and location of matter at the sub-atomic level is affected by the perspective of the observer.
In Quantum Physics for the past one hundred years, it’s been famously proven that, depending on the presence or absence of an observing human mind, subatomic entities like electrons and photons behave either as physical particles, or as waves. When we attempt to observe their behavior using measuring instruments, they appear as particles. But when such instruments are removed, they behave like waves, meaning they don’t seem to be located in any specific point in space at any given moment. Unobserved, they are theorized to exist in a “superposition,” the range of all locations that it will be possible for them to appear in when they are observed. Until they are observed, they do not exist in space or time. They are literally dependent on the presence of the mind to attain a position in 3-dimensional reality.
It is interesting that the bible constantly refers to the importance of having faith or belief. This is supported by Quantum Physics which shows that the belief of the observer effects reality. Jesus often refers to this same principle for example when He says in Mark 9:23: ” All things are possible for one who believes.”
The famous double slit experiment and the observer effect
This video explains the double slit experiment with visuals, which make it much easier to follow. Simply put, every thing in our world is made of vibrating waves of energy. Energy is made of small subatomic units such as electrons. These electrons can exist as either waves or particles. In this double slit experiment, electrons of light are fired at a screen with two slits in it, so that a light pattern is created by the light passing through the slits onto the wall on the other side. The interesting phenomena is that when the experiment is not observed, the electrons act like waves and create a pattern of multiple lines on the wall as the waves interfere with and bounce off each other. However, when the experiment is observed, the electrons become physical particles, and create two lines on the wall. This replicable experiment demonstrates that the expectations of human consciousness create our reality.
Quantum Physics accounts for the ‘Law of Attraction’ which says that like attracts like; what you think about comes about. It confirms the understanding that we create (or co-create with Universal Energy/Source/Creator) our experiences through our thoughts, beliefs, emotions and feelings. It is an internal process. We have much more power than we think we do to circumvent external forces, fate, or bad luck.
We each must accept responsibility for our own experiences and our powerful ability to direct our lives in the direction we want to go in. Quantum Physics and its many findings explains and validates the success of prayer, positive focus, affirmations, meditation on desired outcomes, hypnotic suggestion, optimism, self-healing, spiritual healing and even distance healing. It turns on its head the statement “Seeing is Believing. The truth is that “Believing is Seeing”. You are quite literally the creator of your reality!!
Quantum Physics has proved that YOUR THOUGHTS, BELIEFS and EMOTIONS concerning any and every event, condition or circumstance determine how your life experience will unfold in the physical world.
The science of Quantum Physics is a huge subject and I have only touched briefly on one aspect here. You probably already knew about focussing on your goals for success, but maybe you doubted because it seemed too good to be true. Now that you know the science behind it, and the secret that makes it work, can you let go of those limiting doubts that held you back? If you can conceive and totally believe in the materialization of your BIGGEST hopes , dreams and desires, they already exist as a wave in the quantum field as a probability of existence, only awaiting YOU to make them real.
