Can my thoughts change the universe?
The Oxford Dictionary on-line defines universe as the following:
Universe |ˈyo͞onəˌvərs| noun (the universe)
- All existing matter and space considered as a whole; the cosmos. The universe is believed to be at least 10 billion light years in diameter and contains a vast number of galaxies; it has been expanding since its creation in the Big Bang about 13 billion years ago.
- A particular sphere of activity, interest, or experience: the front parlor was the hub of her universe.
Take the second definition and change the ‘front parlor as the hub’, to the ‘frontal lobe as our hub’ of the universe. Then yes, change the way you think about something and your whole universe is changed.
If you change the way you think, then different neural pathways in your brain are activated resulting in physiological changes. Neurogenesis occurs as you continue to use your new thoughts. Let’s revisit the first definition of the Universe, ‘All existing matter and space considered as a whole…’ Yes, you are a part of the ‘All existing matter and space’ in the universe. By changing the way you think, then you have changed the all-encompassing universe as well.
Love it!!! And that is why I love coaching! Because, when we change the way we look at something, we change the way we think. When we change the way we think, we also are changing the universe. That’s a marvel!
I would love to hear from you i.e. leave a comment below or send me an email me to set up a time to experience a coaching call (freebie)… maybe your universe will change.
