How Far Do Thoughts Go?

The idea that every thought we have impacts our body, possibly in many different ways, is quite powerful. We tend to think that our mood has an impact on our thoughts. What actually happens is that our thoughts affect our mood through the endocrine system.

So thoughts actually create feelings. If our negative thoughts put us in a bad mood, that mood usually causes us to have more negative thoughts. It is easy to see how we can get into an emotional downward spiral of negative thoughts or negative fantasies. We can also get into a positive spiral with positive or optimistic thoughts or affirmations.

All of this is still within the body and the psyche, our thoughts impacting our own body and feelings. How can our thoughts possibly impact the world around us? On the simplest level, our mood affects those around us. Have you ever noticed that when you are in a bad mood everyone around you seems to be in a bad mood? And it works the other way too. Good moods create good moods as well.

But let’s go farther than that. Can our thoughts literally impact other people even if they’re not present? Certainly most of us have had experiences where we seem to know what someone else is thinking or vice-versa. Most of you have had premonitions about something that was going to happen, perhaps from a dream.

We have decades of studies suggesting that extrasensory perception (ESP) is possible as well as studies on psychokinesis and precognition, among others.1 There is strong evidence for distance healing and even prayer could be seen as a means of sending our thoughts over great distances.

Remote viewing, which seems to be something that ordinary people can perform successfully, involves being able to visualize a distant setting through the eyes of someone who is at that site. The military was very interested in this phenomenon and did its own research.

Spiritual teachings for thousands of years have been proclaiming the idea that everything is one. However you conceive of the divine, that divine is one and therefore the creation is also one with the divine and one with all of creation as well.

If we are one with all of our fellow humans (and perhaps all non-physical consciousnesses as well), are we not also in communication (or in communion) with all consciousnesses?

The work of lie detector expert Cleve Backster would suggest as much. Two books were written on his work by other authors: The Secret Life of Plants by Chris Bird and Peter Tompkins in 1973 and The Secret Life of Your Cells by Robert Stone in 1989. Mr. Backster wrote his own book on his experiences in 2003, Primary Perception: Biocommunication with Plants, Living Foods, and Human Cells by Cleve Backster.

My wife and I had the pleasure of hearing Mr. Backster talk about his work shortly after his book came out. Backster claims that plants, cells, and even pieces of steak from the freezer respond to human thought.

Are rocks, oceans, earth, and air also conscious? What do they think about? What do they think of us?

In my next blog I will offer one source’s understanding of the mechanism that turns thoughts into things.
