Do Consciousness and Thought Create and Change Reality?

by PL Chang


To understand how reality works at the fundamental levels, we must study the relationship between the physical and metaphysical realm and understand how they work. We also need to study energy mechanics because it is the mechanics behind energy that organize energy into codes, patterns, and structures, allowing energy to manifest itself into material things. Before I discuss some scientific studies that show how consciousness and thought create and change reality, let us explore what consciousness and thought are.

Defining the exact nature of consciousness is very hard to do for the reason that language has limitations. For example, when we experience something so amazing that it takes our breath away, trying to find the right words to explain it to someone is nearly impossible to do. Even though language can’t explain what consciousness truly is, we can still use it to understand consciousness to a large degree.

What is consciousness?

Consciousness can be expressed in many ways. However, at its core it is basically energy that is self aware and intelligent. Furthermore, consciousness is an intelligent and information field of infinite possibility and creativity. One important thing you need to understand about consciousness is that it exists in many different stages. The current state of human consciousness is still in its infancy stage, which is why we don’t feel like we have infinite potential.

A spiritual truth seeker who does a good job of explaining consciousness in a way that most people can understand is Mark Passio. He stated that consciousness is “the ability of a being to recognize patterns and meaning with respect to events taking place, both within oneself and in the realm in which the self exists and operates.” Another important thing you should know about consciousness is that everything that exists in the material realm has some levels of consciousness within it, including minerals, rocks, water and even the air you breathe. In other words, everything is alive but lives in different states of consciousness.

What is thought?

Thought is subtle energy that is conscious of itself. The pure form of thought is extremely powerful for the reason that it has infinite potentiality. Thought is used by nature to focus everything into existence and to achieve intelligence. The fundamental definition of intelligence is nothing more than thought thinking within itself and observing itself. Contrary to what we have been told, it is thought that give us the ability to think, not the brain.

One of the reasons why most conventional scientists believe that thinking occurs in the brain is because they don’t understand how the brain truly works. The human brain operates like a biological quantum computer. For this reason, when the brain processes information, it can trick us into believing that it is the one doing the thinking. If an organism needs a brain to think, then jellyfishes, starfishes and bacteria wouldn’t be able to survive since they don’t have a brain to tell them what to do.

Do consciousness and thought create and change reality?

Since you have a general idea of what consciousness and thought are, let us explore how consciousness and thought affect reality. One scientific experiment that shows how thought and consciousness affect reality is the famous “double slit” experiment created by theoretical physicist Richard Feynman.

As described at

“In some strange way an electron or a photon [or any other elementary particle] seems to ‘know’ about changes in the environment and appears to respond accordingly,” says physicist Danah Zohar.

A group at the Weizmann Institute in Israel has done a variation of the famous “double-slit” experiment. They used electrons, instead of photons, and observed how the resultant interference pattern (which indicates wave-like properties of the particle) dissipated the longer you watched the electrons go through the slits. As a wave the electron passes through both slits simultaneously but if, according to E Buks, it “senses” that it is being watched, the electron (as a particle) goes through only one path, diminishing the interference pattern.

The double slit experiment shows evidence that particles have a certain degree of “intelligence” and awareness of their surrounding. In addition, it shows that our thoughts can affect how particles behave. Since matter is made of particles and atoms, our thought and consciousness can affect the structures of matter to a certain degree.

The relationship between reality and thought

The new discoveries in quantum mechanics and spiritual science are pointing toward the view that reality is thought construction. Since thought, energy and consciousness are closely related, then they do play major roles in creating reality. Below is an excerpt from an article published by Nature Publishing Group about the relationship between reality and thought.

… Physicists are being forced to admit that the universe is a “mental” construction. Pioneering physicist Sir James Jeans wrote: “The stream of knowledge is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter, we ought rather hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter. Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual.”

How thoughts and emotions change the properties of water

For the past few decades, many experiments have been done to show evidence that thoughts and emotions can affect the properties of water. One of these experiments was done by Dr. Masaru Emoto and his research team. Other researchers have also found evidence that thoughts and emotions can change the structures of water. This evidence can be found when examining ice crystals formed from samples of water that are energized with thoughts and emotions before being frozen. Researchers discovered that water exposed to positive thoughts and emotions produces symmetric and beautiful crystal structures. On the other hand, water exposed to negative thoughts and emotions produces asymmetric and unattractive crystals.

If you understand that your body is made of nearly 70 percent water, you should start to see how your thoughts and emotions could affect the structures of water in your body.
