Don’t Let the Skeptics Influence You
If you were a sceptic and you wanted to create doubt in people’s mind’s, what would you do?
We would write negative comments and reviews on social media. If somebody is new to the Law of Attraction and just learning about it and they read a negative comment, it will likely put doubt in their mind. In fact, reading negative comments may even put doubt in the minds of some people who are not new to the Law of Attraction.
That tiny bit of doubt can then grow into a negative belief which hinders your success.
Our message to you is this: Don’t listen to the sceptics and naysayers! There are people out there who instantly dismiss anything to do with the metaphysical or paranormal without even looking at the evidence or testing it out in their own lives first. They dismiss these concepts simply because it goes against their belief in what they call established science.
The fact is that whenever somebody comes along and questions existing scientific dogma, they are often ridiculed and their ideas vehemently rejected. The current scientific dogma is that the universe is mechanical and consciousness is simply something that is produced by the brain.
However, many new ideas and beliefs which were at first ridiculed were later proven to be true. Here’s a few examples:
In 1905 when Albert Einstein proposed that light behaved like a particle (quanta) as well as a wave, the idea was deemed as crazy. At the time it was believed that light was only a wave. However, Einstein was eventually proven to be correct and this ground-breaking discovery propelled him to develop his theory of relativity and he became one of the most instrumental physicists of all time.
Neils Bohr (1885-1962) was a Danish physicist whose contributions to quantum mechanics were fundamental to its progress. Following the first double slit experiments in the 1920’s, Bohr believed that electrons were a wave of possibilities until they are measured. The electrons behave like they’re everywhere at the same time and it is impossible to determine where an electron is until you measure it. Bohr was saying that only by looking do we conjure their position into existence.
Bohr’s interpretation means that things only become real when we look at them. This became known as the Copenhagen Interpretation.
“Everything we call real is made of things we cannot call real” – Neils Bohr
Many people at the time couldn’t accept this idea and called it outlandish. In fact, the most well established scientist of all, Albert Einstein, hated this interpretation and many physicists from all around the world sided with Einstein. Einstein was quoted as saying “I can’t accept quantum mechanics because I like to think the moon is there even when I’m not looking at it.”
For decades, there was a scientific battle between Einstein and Bohr. Einstein thought he’d won the argument when he discovered entanglement. Particles that are entangled are linked no matter how far apart. It’s as if the particles are communicating instantly. Nothing can travel faster that light according to Einstein’s theory of relativity and so Einstein believed there was an alternative explanation for how two particles, no matter how far apart, can communicate information to each other instantly.
Einstein proposed that the behaviour of a particle was already decided before we observe it. This would mean there is an objective reality independent of observation. Nothing could be proven though, and so the battle between the two of them went on.
Then, John Bell (1928-1990) devised a mathematical equation that ultimately showed Bohr was right. But at the time the entire physics community ignored him. In 1972, however, a small group of physicists came up with an experiment to test Bell’s equation. This was the first genuine test in quantum mechanics and the results from this experiment were conclusive. The experiment showed that Bohr was right and Einstein was wrong.
“The atoms or elementary particles themselves are not real; they form a world of potentialities or possibilities rather than one of things or facts.”
– Werner Heisenberg (German theoretical physicist and one of the key pioneers of quantum mechanics, 1901-1976)
“The doctrine that the world is made up of objects whose existence is independent of human consciousness turns out to be in conflict with quantum mechanics and with facts established by experiment.
– Bernard d’Espagnat (French theoretical physicist, 1921-2015)
In the 1920’s, an English theoretical physicist called Paul Dirac (1902-1984) developed an equation that revealed the existence of anti-matter. Most physicists were sceptical of Dirac’s equation and the idea of anti-matter was considered preposterous. In 1952, however, the existence of anti-matter was confirmed and Dirac had been right all along.
Another theoretical physicist called Richard Feynman (1918-1988) developed the theory of quantum electrodynamics (QED), which says that empty space is not actually empty at all, but rather it is filled with energetic activity and matter is life residue from this activity.
Other physicists at the time were horrified by Feynman’s ideas because the general consensus was that the QED project was a disaster and that the equations were inexplicable and nonsensical.
So Feynman developed simplistic diagrams to explain QED and chose to present his diagrams at a conference in front of the world’s most respected scientists at the time. There was uproar because Feynman used diagrams instead of complex mathematics. The other physicists were disgusted because they believed atomic particles could not be visualised and so Feynman’s illustrations went against everything to which they had devoted their lives.
Feynman was called an idiot and told that he knew nothing about quantum mechanics. However, since the 1950’s Feynman’s theory that empty space is not empty has been observed time and time again.
A fierce rival of Feynman’s was a physicist called Murray Gell-Mann. Through his equations, Gell-Mann discovered that protons and neutrons were made up of smaller particles called Quarks. At the time it was believed that protons and neutrons were absolutely fundamental. Since Gell-Mann couldn’t prove that Quarks existed, he said nothing about them because he feared being ridiculed.
However, years later it was proven that protons and neutrons has a structure and were comprised of smaller particles – Quarks. Thus, the belief that protons and neutrons were indivisible was proven wrong.
As you can see, most great ideas and theories that have advanced our knowledge and understanding of the universe and our role in it were at first ridiculed and rejected, but later proven to be true.
You may encounter resistance from people when you begin thinking in a new way that allows you to create your reality on a conscious level, but don’t listen to the sceptics. In fact, it’s a good idea to keep your goals and desires to yourself until they manifest in your reality. Then you can tell people how you did it.
Many people will mock the notion that consciousness creates the universe because it’s so far-fetched to them and it contradicts everything we have been taught about the nature of reality. The truth is that they mock out of ignorance.
Today, more and more people are waking up to the fact that our universe is a constructed mentally rather than mechanically, and they’re getting extraordinary results.
“Every truth passes through three stages before it is recognised. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is opposed. Third, it is regarded as self-evident.”
– Arthur Schopenhauer (German Philosopher, 1788-1860)
“A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die.”
– Max Planck (Theoretical Physicist and Nobel Prize winner, 1858-1947)
