Reality and your Belief System
Mary Sutherland 2010
A scientist who has studied the OBE Phenomena is Dr. Charles Tar-University of California, who states:
“Thousands, if not millions, of people alive today have had the experience of existing outside the space of their physical bodies for a brief period and experiencing this separated state as real, not as a dream or imaginary experience. A typical consequence of such an out-of-body experience is on the order of ‘I no longer believe that I have a soul, or that some part of me will survive death, I know it!” (Rogo, 1983)
Our universe is operating on a certain wavelength. A phased shift operating on a slightly different wavelength may reveal whole new worlds that are beyond our sensory constructs. Interference between these wavelengths has been postulated as one answer for ghosts and other paranormal activity
Since the middle of the last century a great deal of research has been carried out in paranormal and spiritualistic phenomena. A whole new branch of science — parapsychology — has sprung up, giving us plenty of evidence that the astral realms and entities living in these realms do exist.
The Cultures of the East and West are very different in their views concerning reality. Where the East believes that ‘everything’ we see is an illusion, the West firmly believes that what is real can be seen and that which cannot be seen is an illusion – simply non-existent.
What I have come to realize is ‘your’ reality is based on ‘your’ belief system. Whatever you believe in will manifest in your reality and whatever you ‘don’t believe in, will not. And that is the primary reason why people who do not believe in UFOs will never see them. With that in mind, know that if you plan on hunting for the paranormal, the mysteries or UFOs it is a MUST to ’keep an open mind to all the possibilities’. If you can not do so, you are better off just staying at home, popping some popcorn and watching a good movie.
Sometimes in order to understand what is ‘out there’ you must first understand ‘ how’ you ’see’ your reality. With that in mind, let me explain it to you… as I understand it.
1.) It all starts with the brain and how it is ‘ programmed’ to create your reality. From birth, your brain is programmed as what to believe and how to respond to conditions based on those beliefs. The programming comes via many ways, parents, teachers, religion, peers, books, television, etc.
2.) Your senses send information to your brain, which then ‘filters’ it in accordance to what it is programmed to believe is necessary for your survival. (Much like spam mail filters) Material coming in that is not part of your belief structure is booted out into the trash. After it has booted out what it thinks is trash, it then takes the remaining information and processes it into your reality.
3.) Your nervous system works like a two way highway – receiving and sending information. The nerve cells of the body (neurons) talk to each other – passing information from one sensory neuron to another until it gets to the central nervous system. When the brain again receives the signal it processes it and sends it back to the body telling it what action to take.
Just like a computer, the brain needs to be programmed in order to process data. Although your spouse may be a sight for sore eyes at the end of a long day, you wouldn’t even recognize him or her if the brain had not been programmed properly. Pepperoni pizza may be delicious - without the brain, your taste buds wouldn’t be able to tell if you were eating pizza or the box it came in. None of your senses would be useful without the processing that occurs in the brain. – BUT…what a waste of a good brain if it is processing everything according to ‘disinformation’ programmed into it since birth. And unfortunately, that has happened to all of us.
For some of you, the information you have, that the brain uses for processing, is adequate. But for those of you that want more – that want the magic back in your life, you need to start re-programming your brain, think ‘outside’ the box and allow more information to filter in. How you go about doing this is quite simple. You simply say to yourself “I want to belief in ……” Like Christ said, “Ask and you shall receive”. Such a simply little phrase with oh so much power. …
