Questioning SuccessHave you ever asked yourself how out thoughts affect our outcomes in life? Do you want to know how our thoughts are not only affecting our outcomes in life. In fact, it goes beyond our outcomes to reach as well the life and outcomes of those who are around us. And for sure, our thoughts and state of mind travel easily and in no time to our kids. That is why, if you are a parent, you have to watch your thoughts carefully.

Before going to details with this issue. I would like to share with you two amazing studies from the past that will shock you as they shocked me.

The First Study – Cleve Backster experience

 

Back to Cleve Backster experience and the plant experience in the 60’s. Cleve Backster is the country’s leading expert in the field of polygraph testing or lie detectors. At that time, the lie detector test consisted of electrodes that would attach to various parts of the body like the finger and then the other end would control a readout. It would be a little marker on a piece of paper and if the person was telling the truth. The marker would draw a relatively straight line and if the person was lying or in a state of stress, the marker would draw an exaggerated line.

One night he was at his office bored and he was thinking what may happen if he attached the machine to one of his plants. So for fun, he just tried the experience but the findings were breathtaking.

He started to attach the machine to one of the plants and he started to water the plant and watched the machine as the pen on the machine drew a relatively boring straight line.

Then he thought to himself what may happen if he would take a match and put the flame under one of its leaves, and to his surprise, the marker registered off the charts. The line drawn squiggled wildly . . . and the most surprising and amazing thing was that he never actually grabbed the match and lit the leaf. The plant’s polygraph output reacted as though it was in a state of panic. But Backster had only THOUGHT about putting the match to the leaf. It appeared that the plant was reading his mind, or to put it clearer; “The plant responded to his thoughts”. This experience set off a lifetime of experiments by Backster

He decided later to extend his experiment and take it to a completely new level. He decided to introduce people to the experience and asked them to destroy one of the plants in their minds from a separate room and surprisingly, the person found always that the plant he thought about was resulting exaggerated line.

The Second Study – William Tiller experiment 

 

Another interesting study in the late 1990’s by William Tiller. Who proved thoughts are separate things. He proved that we can isolate thoughts in a box and use it later to affect a physical process.

He had been working on a product that would help eliminate electromagnetic pollution. This product was a little black box and it had a crystal operating it. Crystals are used in many of our everyday products for storing information. You’ve probably heard about “quartz watches” and so on. The box had very low energy . . . just a microwatt’s worth of power when it was turned on and it had a “read only” memory component.

So Tiller wanted to try a test with these little boxes. He thought, if thoughts are just energy, then shouldn’t it be possible to focus an intention onto the crystal in the box, seal the box, and send it somewhere else to affect some type of physical process? Well, that’s what he did. He tried a number of experiments with this box. One of them was to affect the growth and development of fruit flies. Tiller, being a scientist, had very specific instructions.

Another experience by William Tiller was on the fruit fly larvae, he got experienced meditators and asked them to send their positive thoughts to the fruit fly larvae, and after experiments for over 8 months, he found that the fruit fly larvae developed15% faster than normal and once they reached their adult stages they were healthier than normal . . . and so were their descendants. Intentional thoughts seemed to permanently affect the genealogical line.

 

What can we learn from the above two experiments?

It really seems somehow strange. But can really the thoughts have a dramatic effect on our lives like this? Through the above two experiences, it seems to have.

Now let us translate this to our own lives; how do we really have thoughts about ourselves? How do we perceive ourselves? And what is the outcome because of these thoughts.

So if you are sending yourself messages of love, you will have love as an outcome in your life, you will be able to love others and be loved by others.

The same will go with your partner, your colleagues at work and everyone you meet in your life.

The same can be experienced with your family members and kids. I want to focus here on the impact of your thoughts on your kids because this is a crucial subject in our life. One of my friends works as a doctor and his specialization is in infants, once told me that “The kids of a happy family have a better immune system and rarely become ill”. During this time, I was in preparation for my Doctorate Degree research and was studying Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) as well. And I liked a lot the idea of the state of mind and state of excellence in the NLP.

Connecting in my brain what I have heard from my friend and the above two experiences with the importance of our state of excellence. Ended up with a very strong believe that our thought not only affects us. It affects everyone around us especially our kids.

What else makes me believe in the effect of thoughts on others. During my Doctorate degree, I used to conduct interviews with many leaders and employees. I found that happy productive employees are the result of a happy productive leader and vice versa.

Case Study:

 

I was in the shopping mall with my wife and 2-year-old daughter, walking side to my wife and pushing the car of my daughter. Giving my daughter some fun by pushing her quickly and giving my wife and myself fun by exchanging jokes and eating killing unhealthy ice cream.

During this enjoyable time, two kids passed by us, they were not watching their steps. They seemed to be not happy at all. My poor mind start wondering and looking for a reason, why these kids are not happy, my wife asked me to let go my thoughts, the NLP studying urged me to look for the root cause, and I followed the sound of my heart. I changed our direction, following them on a hope to see their parents and analyze the state of excellence of their parents.

Thanks God, mission completed. I saw an upset father and a misery mother. What in hell makes people so upset and affecting the mental and physical health of their kids? The man was talking on the phone, shouting to a business partner, the mother not happy at all, shouting to the kids, as if all the fire back of the worries and doubts they have ended up on the heads of the two poor kids.

 Visualizing unhappy family’s life: 

eye_800_wht_16288

Using my creative faculties, just tried to imagine the normal day of this family, as unhappy kids are never the result of just a temporary situation, this must be a lifestyle. How about an angry mother, waking up her kids with no smile on face, and a worried father asking them to get the best marks or they will experience the undesired punishment. Trying to put off his anger and worries off on someone else. The poor misery mother, who is must probably feel depressed, not willing to meet anyone, staying at the house, preparing the food with unhappy thoughts, cleaning the house, with a worried mind. Transferring all the negative emotions to the small family palace, for the kids to come back and receive the negativity. Days go and come, and the unhappy family will stay unhappy and the unhappy kids will grow up unhappy youths and in the future unhappy citizens and parents.

Most interestingly, at the end of the day, the father and mother will complain that their kids are not happy, not doing well at school and always in poor health. Not recognizing that they are the root cause of all the evil in their kids and the source of change are laying within the parents.

Conclusion:

So, to summarize it up. Everything starts with the thoughts. It is a sender and receiver, it sends what you have within your soul to the outside subject and the outside subject receives it giving back you the outcome you thought of.

thoughts-and-outcomes

The above image demonstrates the whole cycle as follows:

1

A thought gets out from someone’s head

2

It travels to the subject

3

The subject receives it and processes according to the thought

4

The subject sends back same thought to the thought owner

5

The person sees the same outcome he sent at the very beginning

It is the right time now to analyze your thoughts, where did it come from? Why do you hold on it? How to get rid of it?
