What is reality?
Most of you would say ..that which is perceived through five senses…most people rely exclusively on their sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell to interpret their reality as these five senses allow us humans to interact with and experience the physical world.
But can you solely rely on your five senses to give you an absolute sense of reality?
What are your senses telling you about right now? That you are sitting still, motionless and reading this…whereas the fact is you and everything on the Earth are rotating at the speed of 110,000 kilometers per hour (110 million meters per hour) around the sun…isn’t it?
In Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series, Douglas Adam says,”The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.”…
Sounds weird…but its true…Similarly the age old example of a half filled glass which explains the coexistence of the reality of it being half filled and half empty also speaks of multitude of reality…Thus Reality is nothing but perception…perception which could easily extend beyond that prompted by the five senses…
All this should convince your rational and skeptic mind of the possibility of a world beyond the perception of your five senses to exist..With your rational mind on your side you would now be more open to the idea that in this wonder world beyond your senses…Through your thoughts...Life happens by you...Life doesn't happen to you...

Another question…Look at your belongings…Weren’t they real in your thoughts before they manifested in your reality?Wasn’t that smartphone real in your thoughts with colour and specifications before you actually bought it?Everything around you...in your experience is somehow a resultant of your thoughts...

The question that pops up in your mind now is…If thoughts really created reality wouldn’t we all just sit..think think think and boom!!! came our desired reality…Yes thoughts create reality but it isn’t as simple as it sounds and needs a paradigm shift in the belief system…Manifestation with your mind is a skill and like all other skill it needs a thorough understanding,proper mindset and practice to be acquired…The basic requirement to learn to manifest is to
Open your mind to the possibility of reality being beyond your five senses and that your dominant thoughts create your reality
Now that you have successfully opened your mind to the possibility of your thoughts creating your own reality…Let’s look at the new belief system needed to be instilled to learn manifesting
1.)Your Mind is a Universe itself
This means…everything in the physical realm has its origin in the Mind first..There is a single, intelligent Consciousness, all powerful, all knowing, all creative and omnipresent – the Universal Mind. Our Mind is an extension of this Universal Mind in our physical experiences on the earth…
Didn’t buy it? Look at it this way….Our physical bodies are made up of DNA from our parents…That’s what biology says…Similarly our Mind draws from the single source the Universe and is very much a part of it …says Quantum Physics…Your Mind isn't just a home to your mental chatter.It's a potent powerhouse of thoughts creating your reality Click To Tweet
Belief 1 – Your Mind is a dangerously powerful tool to manifest your reality with your thoughts.
2.)Universe speaks Energy
Everything is Energy…Humans, animals, plants, stars, galaxies..everything visible and invisible is energy…Whatever you see in your physical world is simply energy vibrating at varying frequencies that your five senses interpret as something solid or tangible…Similarly your thoughts are also energy…Positive thoughts vibrate at a higher frequency and negative ones at lower frequency…A positive thought creates positive experiences and negative thought creates negative experiences in your reality…Your thoughts aren't just the blabber in your mind...they are the source from which your reality is created Click To Tweet
Belief 2 – Your thoughts, positive or negative..are pure energy and the concentrated form of this energy i.e. your dominant thoughts create your reality based on the frequency they are vibrating…
3.) Emotions as pointers
An average human Mind thinks about 60,000- 80,000 thoughts per day…It is not possible to consciously filter each and every negative thought….Does that mean you’ll manifest mixed outcomes(from positive and negative thoughts) without having control over it? No…This is where emotions come into play…A thought focused on for a long time triggers an emotion…An emotion is pronounced enough to make you aware of it…Thus an emotion is sustained energy of a thought…A strong positive emotion indicates the dominant thought being positive and vice versa…Experts sayStaying in a particular emotional state for more than 17 seconds triggers manifestation of the dominant thought that led to the emotion Click To Tweet
Belief 3: An emotion is not only a state of mind but also a powerful indicator of what are your dominant thoughts and what kind of Reality are you creating…
1.) Mind is the powerhouse of thoughts
2.) Thoughts good or bad if focused repeatedly on become dominant thoughts and…create corresponding reality
3.)An average human mind thinks 60,000-80,000 thoughts per day…
4.) A dominant thought when focused on… triggers an emotion
5.) An emotion guides you if your dominant thought is positive or negative thereby indicating what kind of experiences will you manifest in your reality
This is the natural state of manifestation…This is obstructed by resistance, limiting beliefs, mental blocks, stuck energy etc.which exclusively will be discussed in the upcoming post
