Just those words together maybe sound intimidating. Physics and in and of itself is a complex topic that shines light on how things work on Earth and in our Universe. This type of physics is actually Newtonian physics. Now that there are other schools of thought it is important to differentiate. Newtonian physics brought us a long way; it held our understanding of how things work. Some even still salute this old school info as the only physics. I am in no way saying it is obsolete, it explains some things quite well. There are also some major gaps.
Quantum mechanics begins to open up a whole new understanding of how things work on a whole other level, quite literally. I love quantum physics because it is scientific proof that shows how interconnected we are to every. single. other. human. and every single other loving thing on this planet!
This includes our mama Earth herself. Someone with half a brain can see that we are in need of some major changes around how we approach our daily lives. Taking our Earth for granted has gotten us to a disgraceful place of what is happening in the world today. Living thing–all interconnected–struggling to survive, living in a constant survival mode. Interesting how our Earth is in a grave state and humanity is following suit.
The quantum connection between us humans and the state of our planet-being is well understood. You’ve known this, you’ve seen it in movies–it is looked at as a finite resource. You may have even heard something like, “when the earth runs out of resources we can go find a new planet”. Well, that’s laughable at best. Mama Earths intelligence outweighs our smartest humans all combined. Her wisdom–which is ever present in each of our human bodies as well–is far superior to any of our sciencey solutions.
This isn’t about convincing you why quantum physics is relevant–nor about me explaining what it is. It is a complex yet simple subject that allows a “new” reality to exist from the current paradigm of thinking. It allows the expansion of our consciousness, connectedness and beingness.
Did you know that there are many smaller particles–teeny tinier than even the proton–which is still taught in our archaic educational system to be the smallest particle? There is hard evidence of this. There is hard evidence that time and space have no bearing on a proton activity. They can be miles apart and as one particle is jiggled–there is not even a fraction of a microsecond of difference–they are absolutely connected through the vast lattice that we call space (not outer space).
Ever think of someone you care about and within a short period of time they text or call you, or you run into them on the street? This is a living example example of quantum physics in your life.
If you are able to keep your mind open to possibilities, that information is ever evolving, that science is not God. That often, science is grossly wrong and we end up having to massively backtrack to take to make up for things we thought were ultimately true by science–yet are so freaking far from one ounce of truth.
This phenomenon may come down to one thing: our ability to admit when we’re wrong.
How easy is it for you to admit when you made a mistake? Some may find it easier and for some, especially those who teach or are in the public eye, this can be extremely difficult. It is actually a skill that needs practice and intention. Consider observing this in your self.
You can ask yourself, “do I get tense in my body somewhere upon the thought of being wrong about something?”
Of course you do, it is human nature. Throughout our evolution, being wrong likely meant the difference between living or dying – i.e. neurological survival mechanism.
These days we have a zillion more tools available making that robust mechanism more useful in a few scenarios while possibly hindering us with what I’m talking about here. It is still there, nonetheless. You can give yourself the ultimate opportunity for growth by leaning into this! Try it with something small, “I’m going to make it through the next green light” or better yet “the light will change to yellow, then it will be too late for me to get through.”
You’ve made it through, not even a crease of yellow yet. This example is interesting because even though this is something to feel relieved about – – it may make you feel some kind of way for being “wrong”. (what I mean is literally feel some feelings in your body) What are the sensations that are telling your physiology you were wrong? To practice this, your task is to notice these feelings, where do they show up – chest, thighs, shoulders…? Now – find a way to admit you were wrong – what happens now to that tension? The answers are for you, in your practice.
This is a super small example but our bodies are so intelligent! The good thing is we learn fast, we just have to try be open and remind ourselves we are safe, OK and doing our best (link social Vagus). Practicing being wrong and small ways will elevate your ability to think for yourself and to think more critically–which the world desperately needs.
