Life is all about choices.
And each of us meets certain junctures in our life where we realize our lives aren’t working as efficiently as they could. We don’t feel excited. Passionate. Hopeful. Alive.
When we’re up against this sometimes uncomfortable realization, what if you shifted your paradigm so that you could see the world from a new perspective?
All it takes is a willingness to see things differently.
For example, perhaps you never really thought about the causality of things in life. What makes things happen? What makes someone book a job while you constantly get passed over? What makes someone land a perfect agent while you continue to stay unrepresented? Why does everything happen to them, but not to me?
Well, let’s talk science.
Atoms are the basic building block of everything in the universe. And atoms are made up of 99.9 percet empty space.
If our bodies - and everything else in the universe - are made up entirely of atoms (which they are!) then you, me, our friends, lovers, moms, and dads are all 99.9 percent space.
Space is immeasurable. It’s infinite. It’s expansive.
Scientifically then, you are infinite.
We have a hard time connecting to that truth because we’re stuck on the physical form of matter. We look at ourselves and see things we don’t like. We’re too fat or too old or don’t look like Heidi Klum.
We look at our world and see things that aren’t happening for us. We see the lack of money or no boyfriend or a career that seems to be stalled.
If you continue to view your life only from the materialistic viewpoint, it’s very difficult to create change. Because, from a quantum perspective, the level of transformation we’re looking for doesn’t occur in the material world. It occurs at the quantum level.
So part of shifting our paradigms to create new experiences in our lives, requires that we make changes at the quantum level.
It’s not. Where electrons come together to convert possibility waves into particles is where you want to introduce the dreams you have for your life. That’s just fancy schmancy talk for doing visualizations that correspond with what it will feel like when you achieve the things you desire.
Happiness. Bliss. Excitement. Love. Fulfillment. Joy. Passion.
That’s what it feels like to live the things you’ve been envisioning for yourself.
You have to stay with the feeling. The feeling portion is part of what creates causality at the quantum level.
What do you have to lose in looking at your life from a new perspective?
Nothing. Except maybe letting go of all the things that seem to hold you back. And that doesn’t seem like a loss to me at all.
