Once Connected, Always Connected Proven Scientifically

The more that science, particularly Quantum Physics, investigates life, matter, and our place in the universe, the more it begins to sound--gulp!!!--right down mystical.

Chief among these mystical findings is proof that we are all connected, forever and always. But these paradigm shattering, mind bending findings simply confirm what religious and spiritual traditions have been telling us from the dawn of civilization.

We are not individuals but part of the whole. (And when I say part of the whole, I mean part of every person, part of every animal, part of tree, etc.)

Experiment in Quantum Physics

I’ll spare you all of the scientific details--besides, I don’t really understand scientific language myself--so I’ll cut to the chase.

In 1997, the University of Geneva in Switzerland launched an experiment with mind-boggling implications. The scientists split a photon in half, creating twins. Then they shot the photon off in separate directions. Eventually, 14 miles separated the twin photons.

During this trip in opposite directions, whenever these twin photons needed to choose one course over another, they both chose the same course--every time. They acted as if they were still connected, even though 14 miles separated them.

Nothing in traditional scientific thought accounts for these results. We live in a mechanized world, and universe, where nothing--according to scientific thought--is connected to anything else. Yet, here were photons (the building blocks of matter) that were instantly responding to each other as if they were still connected.

Once Joined, Always Joined 

In his book, The Divine Matric, Gregg Braden says that, before the “big bang,” the universe was nothing more than a small ball that was roughly the size of a green pea. Because there was no space within this ball, all of the photons and the particles were tightly compressed--connected, in other words.

Then the “big bang” blew it all apart, creating an ever-expanding, gigantic universe that is--nevertheless--still a part of us. Once joined, always joined…remember?

What does this Mean--for YOU?

It means that a change in one incident or person changes the whole fabric of our existence. It means that, truly, when you hurt another person or thing you are hurting yourself. It means that you are a part of all that is and all that every will be.

But the most exciting thing, for me, is this--

Whatever you want to achiever in life is within your grasp. You are already a part of it and it is a part of you. All you have to do is reach out for it and believe that it is already yours. Yes, it’s true. Wealth, health, and happiness is already yours. All you have to do is take it.

Love: The Ultimate Power

In her book, The Greatest Manifestation Principle in the World, Carnelian Sage says this about love:

“Love is the catalyst by which all good things happen. The effortless way to achieve your heart’s desire is to let go of your attachment to results, and focus on love instead. Bring the power of love to your pursuits and to all the people, relationships, resources and events associated with your pursuits. The outcome you get may be different from what you had in mind, but it will be infinitely better than that which you desire.”

Why is love so powerful? Quite simply, love is the highest vibration possible. As such, love is highly creative and magnetic. When you feel love, you attract abundance into your life--effortlessly.

The saying “do what you love and the money will follow” applies here. If you truly want to attract abundance into your life, start bringing love into all of your endeavors. Don’t think of your boring job as a means to your weakly paycheck. Think of it as a labor of love. Don’t think of caring for your semi-invalid mother as a thankless chore. Think of it as a labor of love. Don’t think of tithing to your church as a money wasting--but required--part of being a Christian. Think of it as a gift of love.

Start bringing love into all of your endeavors and watch the abundance start flowing into your life.

Miracles are Natural—and YOU Create Them

Image by Marcos Santos

Most of us think of miracles as something that God give us..

- That if we’re REAL good, God will give us something good

- That if we just pray hard enough, and bug him enough, he will give us the subject of our prayers

- That if we just submit to his will, he will give us our dreams.

Well, that’s not exactly the way it works. God (or the Universe, or “the Force”) is not outside of you. It is inside of you. It is a part of you. As such you create—or co-create—the miracles in your life. If you give up the awesome power that you have as the co-creator of your miracles, you will have very few miracles in your life. Sorry :(

This idea that God is outside of us—“up there,” standing in judgment of us, deciding who gets the candy and who gets the coal—was invented by humans who created God by human standards. In our human experience, a leader metes out rewards and punishments. Therefore, God (the ultimate leader) must rule by the same standards.

But God is inside of us. We are divinity and co-rulers of the natural world.

Remember…when the disciples asked Jesus where God’s kingdom was, Jesus said, “The Kingdom of God is within you.” (KJV Luke 17:21)

Jesus also said:

“I shall give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” (KJV Matt. 16:18-19)

It is time that we all recognize how powerful we really are. We are divinity. We are co-creators. We are miracle workers.

We, and our heavenly father, are ONE.

Attitude of Gratitude

Gratitude is a very important aspect of manifesting our desires, an aspect that is neglected by most of us. That’s unfortunate, because maintaining a never ending attitude of gratitude will ensure that a never ending supply of abundance will pour into your life.

All spiritual traditions speak of the power of gratitude to transform our lives.

The Holy Bible (King James Version)

- Colossians 4:2 -- Continue steadfastly in prayer, watching therein with thanksgiving.

- I Thesallonians 5:18 -- In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus toward you.


- Good men and bad men differ radically. Bad men never appreciate kindness shown them, but wise men appreciate and are grateful. Wise men try to express their appreciation and gratitude by some return of kindness, not only to their benefactor, but to everyone else."

- Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful".

Zen Buddhism

- Heaven in the ordinary, on the screen, in gratefulness.

Why Gratitude?

It’s important to be grateful in everything because gratitude works by the principle of “energy flows where attention goes.” If you are not grateful for what you have right now--today--and are always looking for more, your attention will be focused on what you lack. This inevitably causes lack to manifest in your life rather than the abundance that you desire.

Be grateful in everything that you have, no matter how small, and watch the abundance flow into your life.

If you are wondering how to practice gratitude, follow this advice from the Dalai Lama:

“Everyday, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can".

"Our enemies provide us with a precious opportunity to practice patience and love. We should have gratitude toward them".

Two Secrets to Manifesting that The Secret Failed to Mention

The Secret movie was a phenomenal hit that inspired people from coast to coast. It dramatized the true power of our minds, beliefs, and emotions. It told us that if we held tight to our goals, that if we visualized achieving those goals, and that if we got emotional about our goals, we could have whatever we wanted.

Like almost everyone else who watched The Secret, I was inspired by the movie. But I quickly realized that this inspirational movie left out two major secrets that are crucial to success. These two missing secrets are undoubtedly responsible for the millions of people who tried the methods given them by The Secret, yet failed to manifest their desires.

Here are the two missing secrets of The Secret.

1. Take Action Toward your Dreams. You can dream, visualize, get emotional, and have unshakeable faith all you want, bur if you take no concrete action toward your dreams, you will likely fail to achieve any of them. The spirit works by presenting you with opportunities. It opens the door, but it is up to you to walk through the door.

In other words, if you want to find the perfect job, you need to start sending out resumes. If you want to be a bestselling author, you need to start writing your book. If you want to meet the perfect romantic partner, you need to go to the places where your perfect romantic partner would hang out.

2. Think of Others. If your goals are selfish ones, designed only for your benefit, you will likely fail. If you really want to achieve your dreams, you must pursue those dreams that will also benefit others. This is not as hard as it sounds because almost everything we do affects other people on some level. For instance:

- If you want to manifest a new car, visualize your excitement at owning this new car, yes, but also visualize the number of people who have jobs in the manufacturing plant because of your purchase.

- If you want to manifest a new house, visualize yourself in your comfortable new home and visualize how your purchase added to the real estate agent’s wealth. .

- If you want…

…well, you get the idea. Always think of how achieving your dream can also benefit others.

Have you had any positive results by using the principles given in The Secret? Do you think that these two missing secrets would have helped you to achieve your dream?

“So Hum” Meditation

The most difficult aspect of meditation is stifling the thoughts that run rampant through your mind. It is not until you try to meditate, in fact, that you realize just how noisy your mind is.

But there are many ways to still those pesky thoughts. My favorite such method is one that I learned from a book by Deepak Chopra. It’s called the “So Hum” mediation. Follow these instructions and you will soon be meditating like a pro, your mind relatively silent.

Step 1: Go to a quiet place where you will not be disturbed for 20 minutes.

Step 2: Close the curtains or the blinds.

Step 3: Sit in a comfortable chair. Make sure that your spine is straight and your feet are flat on the floor.

Step 4: Close your eyes and begin breathing slowly and deeply.

Step 5: Concentrate on each breath as you inhale and exhale. With each exhale, feel the tension leave your body. Relax your muscles.

Step 6: As you slowly inhale, say the word “So” silently to yourself.

Step 7: As you exhale, say the word “Hum” silently to yourself.

Step 8: Continue breathing like this for 20 minutes, saying “So,” on the inhale and “Hum” on the exhale.

Step 9: If your thoughts wander (and they will) gently bring your attention back to your breath and to your repetition of “So” and then “Hum.”

The “So Hum” meditation calms your soul and quiets your mind. Try it and start meditating--for real.

The Secret of Attracting Money

Do you want to know what the secret of attracting money really is? Okay, here goes--


That’s right. Give it away. According to Jesus, Buddha, Joe Vitale, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra and many others, giving your money away is the only way to attract money back to yourself.

Although this secret of attracting money is foreign to most of us who have been raised to believe that the only way to make money is to work hard, conserve your cash outflow, deposit a certain percentage of your income to a savings account, diversify your investment portfolio, etc., etc., etc., giving your money away is the real secret of attracting wealth.

AND it’s far easier than working hard, using coupons for every purchase you make, and watching the stock market. But there are a few rules for giving your money away in order to make money.

How to Give Money to Receive Money

The secret to giving money so that you will attract money is quite simple. Follow these tips and watch the money start rolling in!

1. Give ten percent. Give at least 10 percent of your income to those people, places, and organizations that give you spiritual or inspirational nourishment. This concept, of course, is the familiar Biblical injunction of tithing. But you don’t have to put all--or even any--of this money into the offering plate at church each week.

In his eBook, Attract Money Now, Joe Vitale explains that your source of inspiration “can come from anywhere. Perhaps it’s a waitress working two jobs to go back to school or maybe it’s a performer with awe- inspiriting talent. It could be the cab driver offering an uplifting story, or the woman at church who always thinks of others. It can be anybody.”

2. Give generously. Any amount of money that you give away will come back to you multiplied many times over--guaranteed. But if you give just a little amount when you could have given much more, your return will be much less as well. So give generously.

3. Do not expect anything back. When you give your money to those people, places, and organizations that inspire you, do not expect anything in return--especially from the recipient(s) of your gift. Your only motive in giving should be the pure joy of helping others.

4. Give Joyously. Just giving money--by rote--is not enough to attract money back to you. Rather, your attitude is all important here. Put emotion into your giving. Allow yourself to feel the pinpricks of excitement as you imagine your gift helping that person or organization. Get excited by your ability to help a fellow spirit that is, like you, having a human experience.

The Bible Says it Best

The Holy Bible says it best (as usual). Here are two of my favorite bible verses that refer to the spiritual law whereby you may attract money by giving money.

Luke 6:38 (King James Version) - Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

Malachi 3:10 (King James Version) - Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

Good luck and let me know about your experiences with this secret of attracting money.
