Kelly Niven: How We Create Our Experience

Kelly Niven | Life is Now

I would like to explain to you how we are creating everything that is happening to us.  I will also explain how our mind and body are connected.  When you really get this you will hopefully have a light bulb moment and it will become clearer for you to see your way forward.

Everything (the process of creation) originates in our mind with our thoughts.  The effect that our thoughts and perception has on our physical reality has been proven extensively by quantum physicists.  The thoughts that we have then spark an emotion in us which creates the urge to speak or act.  We basically attract situations, events or people to us that reflect our thoughts.  It is called the Law of Attraction.

Thoughts          Emotions                  Speak/Act

The Hall of One Thousand Mirrors (Cosmic Ordering Service, Barbel Mohr)

This story is a perfect illustration of this concept.

“Somewhere, in a land far away, there was a temple that housed a hall of one thousand mirrors.  One day it so happened that a dog got lost in the temple and arrived at this hall.  Suddenly confronted with one thousand of his mirror images, he growled and barked at these presumed enemies.  These, however, returned his growling and teeth flashing a thousand times over.  The dog in turn got even more aggressive.  And as the situation got more and more heated, the dog got more and more out of control, and finally reached such an extreme state of aggression and exertion that he dropped dead.

Some time passed, and along came another dog, who also got lost in the temple and arrived at the same hall of one thousand mirrors.  This dog, too, saw that he was surrounded by one thousand dogs of his kind.  He then started to wag his tail with joy at these other dogs and, in return, one thousand dogs happily wagged their tails back at him.  Happy and encouraged, the dog found a way out of the temple.”

Life is mirror of our thoughts.  Which way are you living?

Mind, Body and Spirit

Our emotions not only affect what we experience in our lives but also what happens in our physical body.  This is not to say any experience, illness or disease is all “in your mind”, only that it originated in your mind, with your thoughts.

This concept might be a little difficult to grasp initially but once we understand it, the concept can be incredibly liberating.  You see we are not powerless physical beings with little control over what happens to us in our lives. There is not some unexplainable reason or biological defect as to why we experience any physical discomfort.  We are in fact powerful beings with the ability to create illness, but we also have great healing power, to heal ourselves and prevent future illness and disease.

Basically, our mind, body and spirit are all connected with everything originating in our minds. Once we understand the importance that our thoughts have on our physical well-being then we can take steps to change our thought processes and repair our physical body.

You see if we focused only on repairing the physical body without changing our thought processes or working on our spirit/soul, then we may heal our physical body only for the experience/aches/pains/illness/disease to return again.  We must start somewhere but aim to heal all areas of life to be free from illness and disease.  This might not be the quick fix you are looking for but is a longer-term commitment to your personal health, happiness and well-being.

The Science

Neuroscientist, Dr Candice Pert’s life work has led her to the conclusion that the mind/body is connected and gives full details in her book, Molecules of Emotion.  The book clarifies that the immune system, endocrine system, nervous system, brain (all the main systems of the body) are in communication with each other through neuropeptides and their receptors, thus linking brain, body and behaviour.

Dr. Candice Pert concludes that the neuropeptides are molecules of emotion.  They are produced primarily in the brain and are the brain chemicals of mood and behaviour which communicate with all of the bodily systems. This theory and its conclusions are readily received within the mind/body field and supports the Law of Attraction and the belief that everything originates with our thoughts.  This in turn creates the emotion that influences our physiological response, our physical reality.

It highlights the importance of viewing the body as a whole and not separate.  This is evident in the book, whereby the real progressions in science have been made when the “separate” areas of science began to work together in cohesion with each other (immunologists, pharmacologists, endocrinologists, neuroscientists).

Dr. Pert explains that there are nodal points in our body that are dense with neuropeptides.  These nodal points of electrical and chemical activity receive, process and distribute information to and from the rest of the body.  It is these which are referred to as the molecules of emotion.  The nodal points run down the centre of your body as does your endocrine system and your nerve plexus.  The endocrine system consists of seven glands which produce hormones in to the blood stream which are carried to organs and tissues in the body.  The seven nerve plexuses are responsible for transmitting nerve impulses.

Chakras

Interestingly these nodal points identified fit perfectly with the chakra/meridian energy system which is an eastern philosophy used by many energy healing practitioners.  Chakra is a Sanskrit word and it means “wheel” or “vortex” because that is what it looks like.

Chakras are not physical, they are aspects of consciousness, solid balls of energy interpenetrating the physical body.  The seven chakra energy centres that form part of the energy body run along the spine, located at the major points of the endocrine glands and human nervous system.  It could be said that this is where spirit meets matter.

Many eastern, spiritual traditions use the chakras as part of their philosophy to increase consciousness.  Part of the practices use balancing the energy/chakra systems as part of the teachings including yoga, acupuncture, and tai chi, and there are many therapies and treatments that use the energy through the chakra system aromatherapy, reiki, hands on healing, crystal therapy and many more.
