“What’s the use of old and frozen thought?”—Rumi
If you’ve shown up at the party of this blog, you already know I’m a superfan of social media. Since I dove in 10 months ago, I have heard so many AMAZING stories, greatly expanded what I believe is possible and am flooded now (in a good way) with lots of new friends.
Last week, in one of those “coincidences” that show up in my life as consistently as the postman, I got an email from Greg Kuhn.
Like me, he’s an author, loves quantum physics and practices the “law of attraction.” We all do, of course (practice the law of attraction, we can’t NOT practice it), but once you do it in a deliberate and conscious way, your entire life jets into a whole new cosmosphere.
The reason I was blown away to hear from him is that just that very morning, I had “discovered him” and was reading his wonderful blog. He’s brilliant, hilarious and completely in tune with the song I like to sing.
I very consciously thought to myself, “I’d love to get this quantum genius to write a guest post on my blog.”
Well, guess what?
He’s here today and his post (why am I surprised?) is about superheroes which is exactly what I’m heading out to “be” this weekend. For those who hadn’t heard, here’s an old post about the Superhero Bike ride that starts in two days.
But enough about me.
With no further adieu, here’s that guest post from my new pal, Greg Kuhn. Enjoy!
How You Can Use Quantum Physics to Become a Real-Life Superhero
Ever play a game where you get to choose one super power?
Super speed, super strength, x-ray vision, and indestructibility are always popular options. I always choose having the ability to fly, because I’d never be stuck in traffic again.
But what if you really could have a super power – in real life? What if you could have the super power of consistently getting more of what you want out of life? Not because of “luck”, but intentionally? Manifesting your desires, or at least coming very close to hitting your personal bull’s-eye, most of the time.
To acquire this wonderful super power you only need to do one thing: make it your primary purpose, just for today, to be grateful as often as humanly possible. More about that in a moment…
Does that, by the way, sound too simple? I can understand your reaction, but the instructions for acquiring this amazing super power are actually rooted in the very real and reliable science of quantum physics.
In our universe, material reality is subjective. Quantum physics tells us that each observer sees her own unique universe (and that is meant to be taken literally, not figuratively).
We now know that your observations collapse the “quantum possibility wave” into definitive, material objects. It works like this: all sub-atomic particles exist in a state of pure, unrealized potential (we call this the quantum field) until they are observed. Once observed, a system of coherence is created between the energy of the observer (you) and the energy of the observed (the quantum field). It is this system of coherence that forms material objects, or your material reality.
Thus, it is correct to call the creation of the material world a co-mingling of your energy with other, like-energy. Whereas we used to think that the material world existed independently of our observation, awaiting our discovery in a pre-determined state, we now understand that this is not true at all. Remember the old metaphysical question: “If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is there, does it make a sound?” Quantum physics teaches us that if no one is there, there is no forest!
Quantum physics goes on to show us that you create your unique material reality not just through your observations, but, more importantly, through your expectations. Your expectations convey your energy (your state of being) to the quantum field; your expectations are the medium through which your energy becomes coherent with the quantum field.
Your expectations come, unconsciously, from your beliefs. And your beliefs are nothing more than habitual thoughts, so they are open to change and improvement. Thus, if you raise your beliefs to match, or align with, your desires, you will find that your expectations automatically and naturally rise as well. Like a rising tide lifting every boat in the water, you don’t need to micromanage your expectations – you simply need to raise your beliefs if you wish to experience a much more pleasing material reality.
This is not a “feel-good philosophy”. What I just described is based upon the incredibly precise and unerringly accurate science of quantum physics. A science that has finally revealed for us exactly how most of our universe operates in very concrete and definitive terms.
And here’s where gratitude helps you acquire your quantum super power today. Find reasons to be truly grateful for as many things as you can – even the things you usually take for granted, like breathing, your ability to drive a car, your sense of humor, your beating heart, your wonderful mind, etc. And especially the things you commonly label “unwanted” experiences – by looking for the hidden gifts and opportunities inherent in them (hint…they are there if you’re willing to look for them and are open to seeing them).
Yes, it takes practice. But the investment is worth it because the more you focus on gratitude the more you build beliefs which favor and foster gratitude. And with those beliefs will automatically come uplifted expectations about gratitude. Thus you will become coherent with the energy of gratitude – and create more and more things and experiences for which you’ll feel grateful.
By making a concerted effort to feel gratitude, you will be raising your beliefs in a very positive direction. Over time, by practicing feeling gratitude for everything (or as many things as you possibly can), you will change your beliefs. And, as quantum physics teaches us, when you change your beliefs, you will, literally, change your universe.
