“There are only two kinds of people. Those who believe that they are a victim of the world and those who understand that they are the world.” – Alan Watts
Most people are unaware of how powerful they truly are and even if they’re aware of the concept, they haven’t a clue on where to start or how to create the life they deserve. Too often we get stuck in repetitive thinking patterns. A cycle of negativity that has been wired into our brains; manifesting the idea that everything in the world is happening to us, rather than creating a world where everything happens for us.
Take miracles for example. It is easy to believe that when a miraculous or unexplained event occurs, that it is nothing more than a random act. This, because we are wired to respond to the external. Giving our power away, we react to an event as an external happening rather than taking responsibility for our own creative manifestation.
In a study conducted by Richard Davidson, a world-renowned Neuroscientist from the University of Wisconsin. His research found that our thoughts consistently have a direct impact on our every day situations, as we manifest the ideas we choose to visualize and hold our attention upon. Affirming the long known spiritual philosophy, that we are perpetual participants and co-creators, of our own everyday reality.
Davidson collaborated with Tibet’s Dalai Lama, who provided eight buddhist monks (some of his most accomplished meditators) to take part in EEG and fMRI brain scanning.
Throughout the testing, each monk was asked to concentrate on a specific subject such as compassion, joy or happiness. The results, were more than the scientists could ever imagine; confirming, that depending upon where you focus your attention, you will physically change the existence, the direction and the behaviour of the subatomic particles in our brain.
The EEG’s recorded extremely powerful gamma waves in the frontal lobe (the prefrontal cortex) leaving the scientists bewildered and amazed. Do our thoughts truely create our own reality? Dr. Joe Dispenza thinks so, he notes that the monks in the study were highly accomplished with a staggering 40,000 hours of focused meditation, concentrating on single-minded thought.“These monks had been meditating for 40 years. Each had mastered what has been dubbed as the art of observation or what science refers to simply as paying attention!”
Why is this so important?
You see, the average human being loses their attention span 6-10 times per minute and when we are lacking the skills of concentration, sub atomic particles don’t pay attention to our minds.
So essentially, the longer your attention span and focus, the more you increase your manifestation ability. All in all, in order to make the law of attraction work for us, we need to understand how our mind and body relate to each other and what exactly it is we need to do, so our thoughts can become the reality we choose. Here are the Doctor’s orders:
1. Start Making New Connections
We make new connections in our brains by knowledge gained through information, philosophy, and study. Each time we engage in learning, we create a new neurological connection. The memory sustains the connection and by repetition the neurons maintain the relationship.
