I had mentioned in my first post that in 2006 I had started on a personal spiritual journey and I would like to expand on that now.
The start of my journey.
At the age of 50, I suffered a heart attack and was off work for around 6 months. At that point in my life, I went through some very dramatic changes.
I took a hard look at my life up to that point and the thoughts of what was to come had all sorts of questions swirling around in my head.
Would I be able to go back to work in construction? What if I couldn’t? What would my options be? Quite honestly I was pretty scared!
My sister and brother-in-law asked me to stay with them for a while and I took them up on the offer.
I came across “The Secret”.
That same year the movie “The Secret” which inspired the book “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne was released. My sister asked me to watch it.
Before then I was always under the assumption that religion and spirituality were one and the same. What a bad assumption!
The main theme in “The Secret” was the law of attraction and obtaining wealth and abundance. But that’s not what the movie impressed upon me at the time.
Yes, it would be great to be able to attract wealth and abundance into one’s life. That’s something I think every one of us wants.
But at the beginning of the movie Bob Proctor talked about us being spirit and that we exist on more than one plane.
Now that brought up all kinds of questions. I was raised to believe that we are all physical beings, that we were all separate from each other if we lived our lives according to the bible and what we ’re taught in church that God may have favor on us.
I was never taught that I was also a spirit and that there were other planes of existence other than the physical. If this were true, why wasn’t this taught to me?
Something else in the movie that caught my attention was the mention of quantum leaps. What was a quantum leap? Heck, what was quantum?
The quantum world.
I looked up quantum and the first thing mentioned was quantum physics. So I found a book on basic quantum physics and dove in. Even a basic book on the subject was not an easy read! But I got through the whole book.
Realizing that everything is energy that is just vibrating at different frequencies, and at the most basic of quantum levels everything is connected not just here but throughout the whole universe had my mind spinning.
Now this most basic of quantum levels is referred to as the “Unified Field” or the “Superstring Field” and the concept of this field is very hard to grasp. I could never explain the concept and do it justice, so I would like to share an interview with John Hagelin, Ph.D. on “Consciousness and Superstring Unified Field Theory”. Dr. Hagelin gives a most gracious explanation of how we are all connected by the “Unified Field”. It had me wondering just what are we truly capable of? Enjoy!
Wow! So now are you starting to wonder about who and what we really are? That we’re all truly connected! That this universe we live in is more alive than we thought it was? Is your mind starting to spin like mine was? I had to watch the interview twice the first time I saw it! And from time to time I watch it again as a reminder.
We are energetic, thinking beings living in a thought universe!
That was the start of my spiritual journey. Spurred on by the movie “The Secret” and the universe nudging me to seek out the question; What is quantum?
I believe that the universe is constantly trying to guide us. That everything happens for a reason but we can choose to intuitively listen or not. What if I would have chosen not to watch the movie “The Secret”? Or not have chosen to find out further information about what quantum was after watching the movie? What would my journey look like today?
I probably wouldn’t be writing these blogs hoping that I can help other “Baby Boomers” like you get more out of the life we all deserve!
Heck. Seven months ago I would have never even thought I would have the abilities to set up a website like this, or doing these blog posts and working towards a true lifestyle of freedom for myself and others. If I would have chosen not to listen to the universe when it nudged me towards pursuing the education to become a digital entrepreneur, where would I be today?
I invite you to go to my contact page and drop me a line or two with your thoughts, questions, and suggestions as my journey through attraction, self-awareness, and education continues. All by creation and not competition.
Through the movie “The Secret” my spiritual journey began from my first viewing and I hope if you haven’t watched it that you will and that you do so with an open mind and listen to what the universe is trying to impress upon you through the movie. If you have watched it, watch it again! I have watched it again and again because of the overwhelming amount of information presented. I’m not saying to binge watch it. Over the years I’ve watched it every so often and each time I do more is revealed for me to ponder on.
