What if…?

(Includes 4 new poster designs)
A running theme of this blog is the exploration of “the creative process” which usually refers to birthing new and original works and ideas, or re-combining old ones in new ways. But what if we also create the very circumstances of our lives?

One prerequisite to harnessing this power might be having what the psychological literature calls an internal locus of control: the belief that we are in the driver’s seat in our lives. Another might be knowing that each of us is part of an intelligent field of energy that science is only beginning to understand.

Quantum physicists are consistently observing phenomena at the sub-atomic level that defy our current “laws” of physics. We are made of the same stuff as those particles and waves and, at its most basic level, all matter is energy. What if we humans, by aligning our energy with our desires, can also create in ways that that defy our current understanding of how things work? What if the most challenging part is getting out of our own way?

What if our thoughts, feelings and beliefs are the language through which we communicate with this creative field of energy? What if we get what we expect in life and attract the very things we think about and believe to be true? Would we let our minds run on their default programming, simply accepting the conditions and conditioning of the world around us?  Or might we intentionally focus our energies (consciousness) on choosing and imagining the things we want in our lives, and releasing our limiting beliefs?

“Reality” is obviously not static, but constantly changing. What if “what is” is simply the result of our (individual and collective) thoughts, feelings and beliefs from the past? What if today’s thoughts, feelings and points of focus are creating our future realities?

This line of inquiry has led me into the thick of the happiness and positivity research, which in turn has inspired previous blog posts and poster projects.

Sages throughout history have tapped into the power of thought as a force of creation. Now quantum science is beginning to explore a realm that mystics and poets have embraced all along: a force that connects everything and gives us the power to influence how matter behaves.
