Creation of Reality
How you create your own reality
Physical matter consists of coarse, dense forms of energy with slow vibrations and a strong resistance towards change. On the contrary, thoughts represent a fast vibrating, easily changeable form of energy which responds quickly to stimulation. Everything we create, we first create in the form of thought. Therefore, it is very important what we think (see also 'Conscious Thinking').
When we want to create something, we start out with a thought, an idea or an image of what we want. This idea works as a blue print for the final creation. The blue print attracts and directs the energy, so the goal or creation finally manifests on the physical level. This means that you attract the things and situations you most believe in. Your belief systems and expectations are reflected by the physical world as your personal reality. Thus, the physical world acts as a mirror for your thoughts and expectations. You attract the things and situations you most believe in. If you believe the world is a bad place, that's what you will experience. Negative thinking, uncertainty and anxiety attract the situations and the persons you try to avoid. On the other hand, if your attitude is basically positive, you attract the people and events which correspond to your positive expectations. That means, that if you basically believe that the world is a wonderful place, you will attract wonderful people and events.
In principle, you have built an inner living dimension of the world in yourself - a miniature psychological form of your outer conditions. Thus, your experience of the outer world is a reflexion of your inner, mental condition. Actually, the whole world is inside of you and depends entirely on your belief systems.
Modern brain research indicate that these inner models of reality are controlled by the frontal lobes and especially by the prefrontal cortex. US professor in neurology, Elkhonon Goldberg, says that in a broad sense, the frontal lobes posess the mechanism which can liberate the organism from the past and project itself into the future. The frontal lobes equip the organism with the ability to create neural models of something that does not exist yet but something which you want to exist. These inner models can then be projected by the frontal lobes into the future where they are going to materialize in the outer, physical world as your reality.
Elkhonon Goldberg talks about the Brain Projector Metaphor (see above figure). This model depicts the brain as an overhead projector. The light source is located in the brain stem which is sort of a power supply for the brain. Some of our oldest belief systems (consisting of childhood conditions and habits) are stored in the limbic system and in the right hemisphere. Everything we experience passes through this filter of childhood conditionings and beliefs which act as overhead transparents determining the reality we experience.
Now, in order to remove some of these old useless and often inappropriate belief systems one should meditate. During the meditation you gradually become aware of your unconscious belief systems which you can then chose to drop. However, in order to drop them you have to see them first, and you can best do that when you are in deep meditation. The next step is to replace the old belief systems with new more appropriate ones. In order to do that you have to involve the frontal lobes and use their ability to create models and project them into the future as your new reality.
The posterior, sensory cortex in the model constitutes the 'projection screen'. This is where your new beliefs are projected and experienced as your personal reality.
The prefrontal cortex is the neurological basis of visualization. First you must create the reality you want in your mind. You do this by combining intention, imagination and belief into a clear and vivid mental picture. In order to do that you must have a strong intention (frontal lobes), a vivid image of what you want (sensory cortex) and a firm belief that it is going to happen (limbic system).
