What happens when you don’t realize that your thoughts, expectations and emotions are creating your reality?
And, What happens when you already know that your thoughts, expectations and emotions are creating your reality – but you don’t realize that fear has crept in and taken over your life? Well, I’m pretty sure if you were to google it, my picture would pop up.
My point is this, most people don’t even realize how we create our experiences, and even those who do know how sometimes become blindsided by fears or beliefs that are hidden deep inside of them.
In my situation, (explained in Part 4) I didn’t recognize that I had been encased in a deep well of fear. Until I came to the realization that my life had been stealthily invaded by my fears – my fears were in the driver’s seat of my life experience.
Years before the event of my grand revelation of fear, I was introduced to Quantum Physics. I learned that there is an entire science, one of the most accurate and widely accepted sciences ever known on our planet, that fully supports the processes I had been using to purposefully create and manifest my reality. Low and behold there is a science that backed up what I had been doing!
Basically, everything you see, taste, touch, hear and smell is a vibration of energy. Everything that appears as solid, is not actually solid at all – it is a dense frequency (vibration) of energy. Even our thoughts are energy. When we think a thought it creates a vibration, a frequency of energy, that emanates from us. When we feel an emotion, we are sending out a frequency of energy.
When we send out a particular frequency of energy, the matching frequencies nearby will begin to also vibrate.
For example: Hold two tuning forks that are both calibrated to the same note (frequency), one in each hand. Then strike one of them to make it vibrate and sing, leaving the other untouched (other than holding it). Then hold the two forks about 6 inches to a foot apart and the untouched one will also begin to vibrate and sing.
This is why people of the same energy/life philosophies/interests eventually find each other. Positive thinkers will find each other and negative thinkers will find each other. Happy people find other happy people and sad people will find other sad people. And, just like the polar ends of magnets, opposing groups will repel their polar opposite. Someone who is a pessimist cannot stand to be around someone who is a perky optimist… and visa versa.
In the same manner that we are naturally attracted to people of our same energy, our thoughts, emotions and expectations attract for us our life experiences. This is exactly what I had started doing in the mid 1990’s – I changed my frequency (my thoughts, expectations and emotions) and my experience began to change to match that frequency.
“Everything is energy and thats all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”
“What a minute! Hold up – stop right there! I am a very positive thinking person, so why is it that I am not getting the results of what I really want?”
I had to ask myself this,
What is the strongest frequency coming from me?
In my case, the strongest frequency coming from me was something I didn’t realize I was sending out – fear, pure and simple.
My hopes and dreams did not match up with the fears and beliefs that I was holding in my core; and guess which one was giving off the greater vibration? My hopes and dreams didn’t have a chance.
Think about this, which do you think has a greater fighting chance:
- The thoughts in our head (hopes and dreams). The energy coming from this avenue can be sporadic at best. Even if we spend much of your day thinking and dreaming of something, compare it to this…
- The fears/beliefs/expectations we are holding in our core belief system. The energy coming from this avenue runs constantly, 24/7/365. This energy has been running constantly since we were a child and it has had time to build upon itself and grow stronger and stronger and stronger. It is so ingrained into the fiber of our being that we don’t even know it is there. This becomes our autopilot.
How can I compete with fears and beliefs that I don’t even know I am holding? And how in the world do I figure out what I am holding at my core?
Grab a pen and paper for this exercise – I promise it will be worth doing.
Write down every “life is…”quote, every world view, every opinion others had about you – positive or negative – that you can remember from your past. Go back as far as you can remember. Start with your parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, siblings, teachers, friends and enemies. Don’t analyze them, simply write down everything you can remember being told as a child – good or bad. Once you fill up a page or two you can stop.
I want you to now take a look back at your life and pull up the memories of things that didn’t go as you had hoped and dreamed. Now, does the outcome of your experiences look as if they could have been filtered through the ideas and opinions upon that page or two you just wrote down?
I have come to learn that many of my core beliefs/expectations/fears were passed down to me by those around me from the time I was a small child. I can still hear their voices as they said these things to me and around me. Some of them were good for my sense of self worth… and some of them were not. The words I had written on that page, in many cases, had became my core beliefs from a young age and they shaped me well into adulthood. I am thankful for some of those beliefs and others, well lets just say I was ready to let them go and create some new ones.
To be continued… Part 6
In Part 6 I explain how I began to let things go and take on my new set of core beliefs.
