Quantum physics explains how your thoughts affect reality. You may not think this has anything to do with you at first. After all, quantum physics may not be in your educational wheelhouse. However, this idea offers some hope for those who want better lives.
Thankfully, anyone can understand the basic connection between quantum physics and the Law of Attraction. Quantum physics may be a highly specialized field, but its main ideas are fairly easy to grasp. So, don’t be discouraged.
What is Quantum Physics?
Quantum physics is a branch of physics that studies the nature and properties of atoms and their constituents. Quantum physics has been around since 1900 when Max Planck developed his quantum theory.
In 1927, Erwin Schrödinger officially published what we now know as Schrödinger’s equation . This was followed by Werner Heisenberg publishing The Physical Principles in 1935, which both clarified and expanded upon the concept of quantum mechanics.
The central idea behind quantum mechanics explains that energy exists not just as waves or particles but simultaneously as both. At any given time, an electron has some probability distribution over its allowed states. The wave function for each state of the electron evolves over time and space.
When we measure where something is, or what energy it has, then that’s when one of its states collapses into a specific value. The probability distribution for all other values of position and energy disappears instantly everywhere in the universe except for where there was just a measurement made (the place you did your observation).
This is because when you measure something’s position it creates a photon particle in your eye. That photon then carries information about the thing being observed. This information is then sent to your brain where it becomes a visual object.
What is the Law of Attraction?
The Law of Attraction is a non-scientific belief that “like attracts like” and has been popularized in the self-help movement.
The Law of Attraction was brought about by the New Thought spiritual movement, which began at the start of the 19th century with Phineas Quimby’s self-help book Disease Disproving and Mary Baker Eddy’s later writings on Christian Science in the 1870s.
They believed that diseases had spiritual causes and were the result of bad thinking. This idea was later picked up by authors like Napoleon Hill in his book Think and Grow Rich! (1937) and Rhonda Byrne in her book The Secret (2006).
It’s important to note that the Law of Attraction is not a scientific law. The topic has been studied by many scientists, but the results were inconclusive at best.
How Quantum Physics Explains the Law of Attraction
The idea behind quantum physics explains that we are all connected. What affects one person will likely affect everyone else in some way.
Since we are all made up of atoms that have been connected from the beginning of time, these particles know what your thoughts and feelings are even before you think them. In a sense, we’re living in a giant web with every atom being linked to one another.
So, if someone else’s atoms are disrupted, then yours will be as well. This is why you can feel another person’s pain even if it has nothing to do with you.
The Law of Attraction works the same way. Whatever thought patterns and beliefs that someone else may have, they become your own through this web-like connection. When people post images on social media of money, fame, and success, it can affect your subconscious mind.
You might not realize it at first, but you’re also affected by what others post regarding their bad days, such as work or family problems. Since all atoms share a connection, you can end up “sharing” the emotions of the person experiencing a hard time.
However, the Law of Attraction doesn’t work perfectly all the time as interconnectedness is a two-way street. If someone else has negative thoughts and feelings, then you will take on those emotions as well.
Quantum physics shows us that everything in our universe is made up of energy, but these particles can change into other types of energy and back again. So, the Law of Attraction only works if it’s all balanced out over time.
Perception is a Determining Factor
We all have different perceptions of what is real or true. Quantum physics shows that our thoughts affect reality in unique ways. This is largely due to the brain not always making sense of everything you perceive through your senses.
For example, if a person looks at something red, they might also be able to hear an annoying sound that does not correlate with the color red. This could be because the person’s brain did not make sense of what they were seeing and hearing.
The same thing happens if someone sees a person or place that they don’t like. Even though the person may not be able to see anything wrong, quantum physics states that their brain is trying to make sense of what they are seeing.
In order to change your life, you need to make sense of what is happening around you and focus on the good things in your life. The Law of Attraction states that if you think positive thoughts, then your brain will make sense out of what is happening around you. You can then attract better things into your life.
This also means that your thoughts can affect what you see and hear because they are in separate parts of your brain. When one becomes active it affects the other areas even if there is no actual correlation between them.
You do not need to be a quantum physicist for this idea to make you feel better. Life gets tough, and sometimes we get caught up in negative thoughts like “What’s the point?” or “I’ll never find happiness.”
But if you think about how your mind affects reality at such an elemental level, there is hope that things will change. Life may not always go your way, but it can still work out in the end. In fact, it may even turn out to be better than expected.
