Quantum realities

Which reality are you choosing right now? What are you choosing to give your focus and attention to? You are the co-creator of your destiny and this is happening every moment of every day. Your destiny is simply the manifestation of your dominant vibration. That is, what you are thinking, feeling and saying to self and others.

You have the potential to tap into greater possibilities than you are currently experiencing. Every moment of every day is filled with limitless possibilities and infinite potential, yet we often allow ourselves to see ourselves as victims and blame everyone and everything else for our feelings, thoughts and actions as well as the predicaments we find ourselves facing.

The term "alternate realities" or "quantum realities" is often used in spiritual or metaphysical circles to describe realities that are we are living in parallel to our current expression in this time-space reality. Spiritual Response Therapy has taught me that clearing past lives, "future lives", "parallel lives" and "parallel life bleed" can dramatically alter one's experience of present day reality. The clearing works but the question remains to most of us, how do we know such things really exist?

The truth of the matter is really that we are constantly shifting between these different realities all the time, even if we are not conscious of it. Each time we make a decision, or fail to make a decision, we change our quantum path.

The science of quantum physics has demonstrated that two atoms can occupy the same point of space. Such an outcome is called a Bose-Einstein condensate, honouring the authors of the equations that predict such an occurrence. Jeffery Satinover reports that Bose-Einstein conditions have occurred with "condensates of up to 16 million merged beryllium atoms" formed in the laboratory in the late 1990s.

That is an incredible message to us all. The outcome of any situation is not set in stone. Every possible outcome exists at every moment of time and space and it is our conscious or unconscious intention that affects which outcome unfolds before us.

This, of course, is good news when you want the situation to change but perhaps unsettling when you want security.

However, when you perceive that things are not going right, you can lift yourself above the illusion and claim back your power by affirming that things will go well and that a happy, satisfying ending will occur. Remember that an affirmation is not an idle wish - there must be a conscious intention to link to your higher self/mind and recognition of your relationship to the Divine.

You already have a deep connection to Source/Spirit/God just by being you. Yet, having forgotten who we are, it is necessary to remind ourselves to listen to our internal sensing mechanism, that is to say our thoughts and feelings, to determine whether we are in the flow or are feeling resistance.

If we are feeling resistance, we are putting your attention, energy and focus on the opposite of what we truly desire. So, it makes good sense to practice letting go of negative habitual thinking to affect our quantum reality.

This was brought to my attention once again the other day when my wife and I decided to take a short break away together. Her company had already paid for her flight and accommodation to go to Morocco for business reasons and she felt it would be fun to get away together. Once there, her business itinerary was brief, so most of her time would be free to spend with me. All we needed to do was book a flight for me and we could have a beautiful holiday in a place that we always wanted to visit at hardly any cost to ourselves.

However, we happened to switch realities when her company decided at the last minute that it had to send her a couple of days later than envisaged. We felt a great amount of internal resistance to their decision and quickly realised that we both needed to align ourselves with what we wanted, rather than what we didn't.

Linking in to my High Self, I allowed myself to feel the possibility of my wife saying to me "yes, we're going on holiday together and my company is paying for the change of flights and extra nights' accommodation". I visualised her happy face and really got the feeling of it - then I let go of the outcome and left the "how" up to the universe.

Sure enough, this all happened, and we felt blessed by the outcome. If we had continued to hold thoughts of frustration and disappointment, then we would have seen a different reality unfold before us.

Quantum realities can be seen like going on a train journey. Quite often the train can change tracks and you can end up in a totally different place. If you end up somewhere you like then there is no need to change anything. However, it might take another (train) journey along a different path to get you back on track and finally to the destination you wanted.

The more we can practice being aware of our own thoughts, feelings and actions, the quicker we will free ourselves from the tapes of the past that bind us and create futures that serve us, rather than realities which we feel helpless to change.

Spiritual healing for Humanity and Mother Earth

Spiritual healing means drawing out the health that is already divinely inherent within each person and situation. Healing is blocked when we focus on a seeming problem and try to banish it because whatever we focus upon tends to increase.

Fear is misuse of creative energy. Focusing upon our problems engages our egos and lowers our emotional energies putting us into a state of fear, thereby attracting the very thing we want to avoid.

Jesus Christ showed us through his example that we heal by recognising the Divine perfection within everyone and every situation. Today, we are being called upon to rise up to present day challenges and do the same. Not only in our personal day-to-day challenges but also on a global scale.

The other day while watching the wonderful documentary "An Inconvenient Truth" by Al Gore, former Vice President of the USA, I was struck by his sense of urgency and purpose in bringing the very real message of global warming to the world, country by country, person by person. He reaches out to touch the hearts and minds of his viewers, very clearly explaining the causes of global warming and the highly visible, detrimental effects that it is having on our planet today. Funny and engaging, he exposes all of the myriad myths and misconceptions that surround it. (To learn more, please visit

The documentary is a sad reflection of humanity's greed (of those in power) and ignorance (of the general public) which has led us to where we are today. The world's scientists are in agreement that we have little time left to act together to avert a major catastrophe that could send Planet Earth, our home, into a tail-spin of destruction involving extreme weather, floods, droughts, epidemics and heat waves.

We can no longer afford to view global warming as a political issue - rather, it is the biggest moral challenge facing our global civilization and we must start to see each other as a global family to have any real chance of changing the course of history.

In contrast to the dire flooding and extreme weather patterns which would cause huge displacement of peoples all over the world (it is estimated that 100 million people could be affected), Gore clearly demonstrates that humanity has the power to dramatically change carbon dioxide levels to below what they were forty years ago, if only we can wake up and each do our individual bit.

It’s vital for us to take action such as recycling, reusing, and reducing energy expenditures but we must do so from a place of love instead of from fear. We can recycle because it’s a gift that we give to Mother Earth to honor her and it is also a gift that we give to ourselves. We can switch to eco-friendly cleaning supplies because it feels healthy to be free of chemical pollutants. Whatever we visualise is what we attract and experience, so we must see ourselves living in a clean, healthy planet with food and shelter for all.

Shifting consciousness is an important aspect of changing how we interact with our world, and with each other. True change comes when there is openness, love, and a lack of boundaries between us. We must always seek to see with the eyes of love and ask how we can be of greater service to each other.

When you look at the man, woman or child on the street, how do you perceive them? Do you acknowledge their inherent divinity, or do you only see the outer shell, their personality? Do you cast your beliefs, perceptions and judgements upon them, condemning them for not being as enlightened as you or do you smile inwardly and offer them compassion and non-judgement? Let us remember that a person is not their behaviours and that we all have the capacity to change and grow.

An uplifting thought to have which often helps me to stay centered in difficult situations is "that person is doing the best they can", and maybe they are!

Last but not least, let us all remember to love ourselves for we can only do the best we can each moment of each day. Being kind and loving to ourselves will allow us to naturally extend that behaviour to others and takes us into a higher flow, blessing us with insight and guidance.

Gaia, the sentient being that is Mother Earth, is willing to help us heal if only we are willing to listen. Let us open ourselves up to the wisdom that is within and all around us and be guided by our higher natures, not our lower ones.
