Have you heard about the brilliant documentary What the bleep do we know? If not congratulations to have found this article. Understanding the principles of quantum physics explained in this film will empower you massively. Because everything in the universe is connected anything becomes possible.
Yesterday’s post was about trusting life and your capacity to overcome any challenge there might be. Trusting means opening up and accepting what is. About the fact that there is beauty everywhere. Or as Henry David Thoreau said, “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”
I watched the film ‘What the bleep do we know’ again yesterday while cooking (because I recommended it to a client). I saw it for the first time when it came out in 2004 or maybe a year later (we can’t always trust our memories!). The film combines documentary-style interviews, computer-animated graphics, and a narrative that posits a spiritual connection between quantum physics, neuroscience and consciousness. If you haven’t seen it yet, schedule some time now to watch it – I promise it will change the way you look at certain things forever.
Everything is connected
Even if I have studied and embodied most of what is said by several eminent scientific researchers in What the bleep do we know before, I still believe that its fundamental message is mind-blowing! In a nutshell, quantum physics shows us: what we see and the way we interpret ‘outer facts’ is (1) conditioned and (2) an illusion.
The truth is, there is no ‘out there’ separate from ‘inside me’. An infinite amount of possibilities – that’s all there is.
I was not very astonished to ‘learn’ about these findings in this brilliant documentary. Another way of putting it is… ‘all is full of love’. If you embrace love, you embrace life. If you understand, that everything in the universe is connected anything becomes possible.
Life seems like being on a roller coaster sometimes. It’s not always a smooth ride. That’s why I love to quote the saying: “You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.” It’s up to you to see and find beauty, the positive and even the blessing and lesson in every hardship you encounter.
If you are a Highly Sensitive Person or an Extra Intelligent and Intensive Person – and did not know this ‘fact’ about yourself – you may have felt like alien many times in your life. Not seen, not heard, not understood – even rejected. You wondered if there could ever be a place where you felt that you belong.
I have some good news for you: once you understand this aspect about yourself you’ll also understand that there are many other creative multifaceted and multitalented ‘aliens’ like you living on planet Earth. All it takes is to acknowledge that and how you are uncommon and learn to spot them. Here’s how.
Are you playing big or small?
There is another important insight you can gain from What the bleep do we know and quantum physics: what you think, speak and do matters. Your mind has an impact on your body. Your thoughts can influence ‘things outside’. Your thoughts and words have an impact on the world! Always. They influence the way you ‘see’ and interpret things – but they also have an impact that goes beyond.
You certainly have heard of chaos theory and the butterfly effect.
After getting this it’s up to you to decide how big or small you want to play. There is no right or wrong!
I coached an entrepreneur the other day who wants to play bigger – she wants to step out of the shadow and touch millions. I was impressed! Truly. Before this conversation, I thought I was bold – and several persons told me so – to say I want to touch a 1000 women’s lives with my work and my message before I’m 50.
The important piece here is not the number! The important thing is figuring out what you really care about, why you care and what motivates you.
Anything is possible
This exchange of words has created a shift in me. Suddenly there was a voice inside me saying, “why not?” I truly believe that you can achieve anything you want.
Just before, while I was writing this article, full of zest and energy, I made a typo mistake. I wrote 10’000 instead of 1000. And now I think: why not! I can do that! And more, if I like. It’s fun to be bold. And empowering, too.
PS: fast forward several years after I wrote the last paragraph… I’ll turn 49 soon and my focus has shifted again. These days I’m not tracking numbers anymore. I focus mainly on having a positive impact on (at least) one person a day – somehow. It’s all about the process and about living in Einstein Time.
Your turn now
Ask yourself the following questions and write the answers in your favourite notebook:
- What limiting belief is keeping me stuck?
- What if I was bold and gave way to my deep hidden ambitions and how I would love to contribute to make this world a better place?
- What are my purpose and my mission?
- Do I want to play big or small?
