The Field – by Lynne McTaggert

The tag line “The Quest for The Secret Force of the Universe” says it all.

Some have called it the Causal plane, the Monadic plane, Adi, or Buddhic Plane,  but Lynne discusses it as The Field, from the quantum physicists Zero Point Field.

Read it with a sense of journey and wonderful possibilities.  Written for the logical part of the brain, it’s a great little path on your own adventures of thought.

The Field, 4lawofattractionLynne discusses topics such as The Zero Point Field, Coherence, Psychokinesis, and the connections between Consciousness and Healing, and Intention.  The Field connects research from such scientists as James Clerk Maxwell,  Fritz-Albert Popp, Michael Faraday, Jacques Benveniste, Max Planck, Karl Pribram, David Bohm, Russel Targ, Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, and Rupert Sheldrake.

Here’s a few thoughts from The Field that really poked at the hot coals in my own brain.

  • By tapping into the Field, Consciousness has been shown to affect plant growth, bacteria growth, rodent behavior, cats and dogs, enzyme activity, crime rates and even Healing in strangers.
  • How this Zero Point Energy Field could explain why “when closely packed together, atoms and molecules exhibit a collective behavior, forming what scientists have termed ‘coherent domains’.”  This collective behavior can also be seen in crowd mentalities, or the beauty of schools of fish or flocks of birds as they instantly all change direction as one entity.
  • Seeds, or the water used for those plants, when held (or thought about) by depressed people repeatedly showed suppressed growth.  Contrary,  holding or thinking of the seeds or water in a positive manner – showed a statistical  difference in growth.
  • Molecules can respond to the Vibration of another molecule in the same way AS IF it had actually touched the original molecule.  Yes, biological chain reactions were initiated when just the sound Frequency was relayed.  This  explains how on average, some 100,000 chemical reactions per second in each cell in your body, could happen, rather than “blindly bumping into each other” like little solid billiard balls.)

The Field can help orchestrate some New Momentum in our thinking, which is what life is all about, right?

Get Turned On!

Simple enough – Remember the 2nd law of thermodynamics?

Concentrated Energy disperses to less concentrated. Entropy Happens! – It just never caught on as a catchy bumper sticker, that’s all.  OK, so an electrical hot wire warms the toaster which warms the toasts which safely warms my lips.

Energy and all its offerings automatically FLOW if it wasn’t for it’s Arch Enemy –  Resistance – (cue the sinister background music here).

In the later part of the 19th Century, when Telegraph wires were strung across the U.S., scientists  found that differently made cables affected the ability to receive the signals sent through them. Steel and long wires, for example, just didn’t carry the signal as clearly as short, copper wires. The Resistance to Flow had to be examined in order to receive better signals.

(For the youngest of you that may be asking “What’s a wire?” – just ask someone old, like someone who’s over 20.)

Today in the 21rst Century we also understand how Resistance to Flow, measured in Viscosity, is also seen in liquid form. From good traffic, to land masses, to motor oil to your blood pressure, FLOW is what keeps all of our favorites working well. Let the oil gunk up in your car and see what happens to its performance. Let plaque clog up your arteries and see how it affects your VERY favorite machine.

From our planet down to our phones down to phlebotomy, Flow is needed and a natural part in every system.

In fact, OUR very Essence of  “Who I Am” depends upon clear Flow from Source Energy – (please insert whatever Label you feel comfortable with as far as your Inner Energy). The only gunk, or “mental plaque” that can slow the Flow, and create Resistance, is our own thoughts.

If we can can determine the Resistance to find why something is NOT in the flow, then we have a greater chance of seeing it perform better.

Of course the On/Off button is the biggest resistance to allow energy to the toaster. If the toaster still doesn’t work, aka conduct energy with the button ON, then we could measure the electrical resistance with an Ohmmeter, since an electrical unit of resistance is called an Ohm. Then we could adjust the resistance to the flow and correct the toaster to accept the energy’s momentum, and make yummy toast again.

So, I just have to ask you… Don’t you find it ironic that the sound that some people exhale while meditating to calm their minds is the “OHM” sound?….

……Perhaps they are letting all their Resistance go as they allow the flow of energy?
