As discussed in the previous post the world you see around you and everyone in it is a direct reflection of the inner (real) you..Your thoughts either conscious or unconciously have directly resulted in the experiences you are having in this lifetime.
This concept is not new. It is a long held belief in many metaphysical circles that we are here on earth with free will, and the power to co-create.
The popularity of “The Law of Attraction” and success of books such as “The Secret” has proven how widespread these ideas have become.
The core of these beliefs is that your thoughts create your reality, and by controlling and focusing what you think, you can shape circumstances and events in your life.
You are what you think!
Now like me you’re probably asking yourself why, if I have free will and the power to create anything, would I create a world around me full of hate, violence, and fear?
Why would I put myself in hardship, in poverty, in ill health?
The simple answer to that is because you didn’t do it deliberately. In the absence of a captain your ship has been sailing itself.
You have been running on auto pilot, relying on your ego, intellect, and subconscious to formulate your reality.
The majority of our decisions and actions in our daily lives are based on past experiences and old memories replaying.
What happened the last time I did this? What was the result?
It is widely accepted that past traumatic events in a person’s life can cause significant reactions and major personality changes for many years after the event.
Memories that we have repressed play an even bigger role in shaping our lives. Mainstream therapy is focused on recalling these memories and facing up to them as a form of resolution.
It is not difficult to see how these past experiences help shape and form our lives and attitudes today. How you remember the past can dictate your present day view of the world.
That is undeniable…
But can these memories shape our very reality?
