In 2006 when I had my heart attack which led to the start of my spiritual journey I experienced a shift in my personal values. At that time I didn’t realize that there was an actual term for that shift in values that I had experienced.
Six months ago (August 2018) during the start of my education process to become a digital entrepreneur my new mentors suggested I watch a movie by Dr. Wayne Dyer titled “The Shift”.
At the beginning of the education process, my mentors believe that in order to truly become a successful digital entrepreneur one needs to have a good understanding of oneself and what their personal goals truly are.
I thought it was interesting that they also suggested that I watch the movie “The Secret” which had started me on my spiritual journey 12 years prior.
So what is the actual term?
You may have already guessed it! When a person experiences a major event in their life, such as my heart attack, and it causes a sudden shift in their values this is called a “quantum moment”.
There was a study done over a long period of time with a group of men and women on their personal values. At the beginning of the study, they were asked about their values.
For the men the top five values were:
- A sense of adventure
For the women the top five values were:
- Fitting in
When they concluded the study the people that had experienced some kind of major event triggering a quantum moment in their lives were asked again about their values. What they found was that the quantum moment had shifted their values.
For the men the top five values became:
- Personal peace
- Gods will (a sense of peace)
For the women the top five values became:
- My own personal growth
- A sense of self-esteem
So how did my values shift?
Looking back at the period in my life before I experienced my heart attack my top five values were pretty close to that of the men in the test group.
They were in order of importance to me:
- A sense of adventure
After my quantum moment my shift in values in order of importance was:
- Personal peace
Keep in mind that before and after my quantum moment I have always had all these values mentioned here, plus some, they’ve just shifted as far as importance is concerned. I’m a little embarrassed to admit that spirituality was way down on the list of importance.
Really if you remember me saying in my third post that I was under the assumption that spirituality and religion were one and the same. Then spirituality wouldn’t have even been on my list of values before my quantum moment. I would have to of listed that value as religious.
It wasn’t an instant change.
Now my values didn’t just shift overnight but it was a very short period of time.
I believe that when I had my quantum moment my conscientiousness began to tune into the Universe. Into that sea of pure potential thought that connects everything which Dr. Hagelin spoke of in his interview in my third post.
And it wasn’t by chance.
I don’t believe that it just happened by chance when I was staying with my sister and brother-in-law that I was introduced to the movie “The Secret”.
That even though at that time in my life when wealth was in the top five of my value system, that was not what the movie impressed upon me.
I was made aware that there was a difference between religion and spirituality and was driven to find out the questions that were coming to mind:
- Are we truly spirit?
- Are there different planes of existence?
- Was what I had been taught the truth?
- How did quantum fit in?
All we have to do is listen.
I believe that we have intuition in order to connect with the Universe. We need to learn to become more aware of those intuitive thoughts presented to us.
Since my quantum moment, I have started to listen to those intuitive thoughts that pop into my head and explore them with an open mind, an open heart and paying attention to the emotions they bring forth. Those little sparks of intuition are taking me on a progressive path towards what a lifestyle of true freedom means to me.
It’s not always an easy path, like any path in the woods there are hills and valleys, turns and detours. But that’s life.
I have faith that the Universe is leading me in the right direction. It is ever expanding, ever increasing, a Universe where everything is totally connected to everything else by energy of pure abstract thought. As Wallace D. Wattles put it “thinking stuff”.

Have you had a quantum moment? Do you believe that our intuition is a connection to that thinking stuff that penetrates and permeates everything in our Universe? I’d like to know.
