If Your Thoughts & Intentions Can Do This to an Apple, Imagine What They Can Do to Your Body

(Alanna KetlerWe’ve heard it before: our thoughts are powerful. Maybe we’ve even heard that our thoughts are actually creating our reality. But it’s one thing to hear or learn this concept and a completely other to fully grasp what it means and apply it to our lives. Our thoughts create our reality? How so?

This concept was first introduced to me in a documentary, What The Bleep Do We Know? This film explores how matter is not really solid in the way we have been led to believe and our perception of it actually has the ability to change it. The infamous “Secret Life Of Water,” experiment and book by Masaru Emoto is referenced, as well as a powerful reminder of what our thoughts are truly capable of. Essentially, this experiment involved focussing intention into different containers of water. For example, one was “love,” another was “thank you,” “harmony,” while on the other spectrum, “I hate you I wish you were dead.”

The water molecules from each category were then observed under a microscope. The molecules that were infused with the loving, positive intentions had beautiful, geometric patters, similar to snowflakes. The other molecules, that were infused with the more negative thoughts and intentions, showed up as chaotic looking, and not in alignment like the others. This experiment served as a powerful reminder that if thoughts can do this to water, what are they doing to us? Take a look at a clip from the film below, and if you get the chance I highly recommend checking out the whole documentary!

The following Facebook post is a similar experiment that was conducted on two halves of the same apple. The same amount of time has elapsed, the only difference between each half was that one was in the presence of art, creativity, meditation, love and gratitude and the other was exposed to blame, judgment hatred, heavy metal music and mainstream news, and thus fear. The experiment was done by someone who was just curious and gave it a try, anyone can do this at home and see for themselves that this is real — these results are remarkable, and the experiment speaks for itself, have a look.

Apple Experiment

What Can We Learn From This?

Everything that you are saying, thinking, and doing will have an effect on not only your reality, but on your physical body and experience as well. How do you talk to yourself, what thoughts are you thinking? Are you practicing gratitude in your life or are you playing the part of the victim, speaking unkind words to yourself, assuming you’ll never find success in your life, etc.? You see, these thoughts make a huge difference! And, as we can see via the experiment above, it is a lot more than just your thoughts that play a role here. We can clearly see that practices such as meditation, dancing and creative expression kept the apple healthy, while on the contrary, actions such as watching the news and being consumed by fear were contributing factors to the rotting process of the apple. So, if thoughts and actions can do this to an apple, what are they doing to you?

The Power Of Prayer

I don’t know about you, but this experiment also makes me realize how important it is to bless our food and demonstrate gratitude before we consume it. Much of the world’s population is eating meat and animal products from animals who are living in a constant state of fear, being abused, pumped full or hormones and antibiotics, and no doubt this energy is being stored in their bodies that many of us are then consuming. Even for those eating a plant-based diet, much of our food is travelling long distances, being radiated, and not necessarily being shown a lot of love… perhaps this is why home cooked meals tend to taste so good — because this love, care, and attention is going into the process. If we are eating something that we know is bad for us and we are judging ourselves for doing it, do you think this item will have a more positive or negative effect? Sending love and blessings to our food can go a long way.

It’s All Perception

I find myself saying this a lot lately, because this notion is becoming extremely apparent in my life. We can actually choose what each day will look like and what we will create for ourselves. Instead of dreading that co-worker that always seems to know how to push your buttons, you can turn that way of thinking around by thinking, I wonder what opportunities for growth I will receive today. Instead of expecting the worst and creating a story that your partner isn’t going to give you any attention, you can think everything is as it should be and I allow the space for my partner to show me affection. It’s kind of like learning to appreciate the rain, because without it we wouldn’t have green grass, flowers and beautiful big trees. You have a decision everyday, what choice will you make? Will you be like this cat?

The Science Via Related CE Articles

It’s important to mention that there is a tremendous amount of science behind the mind body attention, and action at a distance, which is our ability to influence physical systems at a distance. In 1999, a statistics professor at UC Irvine published a paper showing that parapsychological (telepathy, distance healing, remote viewing etc) experiments have produced much stronger results than those showing a daily dose of aspirin helps prevent a heart attack. She also showed that these results are much stronger than the research behind various drugs like antiplatelets, for example.

This type of science is also actively studies, and has been studies at the highest levels of government with extremely significant statistical results.

Question -- What is the goal of this website? Why do we share different sources of information that sometimes conflicts or might even be considered disinformation? 
Answer -- The primary goal of Stillness in the Storm is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.
