Your Thoughts Create Your Reality
A few weeks ago on a Sunday, I was flipping television channels when I stumbled upon an episode of Super Soul Sunday in which Oprah Winfrey was interviewing Dr. Eben Alexander, a neurosurgeon who had a near-death experience (NDE). Dr. Alexander was discussing how, prior to this event, he was not a particularly spiritual man and like other scientists, argued that NDEs were impossible and simply fantasies produced by brains under extreme stress. He went on to explain that his brain was attacked by a rare illness and that the part of the brain that controls thought and emotion – in essence what makes us human – shut down completely and for seven days he was in a coma. Just as his doctors contemplated stopping treatment, he awoke. He then spoke about what he experienced during those seven days – a journey that changed his life!
As I listened and watched this interview, I thought to myself, “Wow, this is really amazing, this man is going to be on my show!” I texted myself his name and the name of his book, Proof of Heaven, and I made a note to myself to send him an interview request. The next few days were extremely busy and I didn’t act on my intention, but I continually reminded myself that I was going to speak with him.
Four days after seeing the show, I had the opportunity to chat with Pam Grout, a number one New York Times bestselling author who has written 16 books including the E Squared and E Cubed series in which she teaches that our thoughts create our reality. She and I spoke at great length about manifesting and how we have tremendous power over what comes into our lives – both positive and negative. I mentioned Dr. Alexander to her and told her that I didn’t know why, but I was certain he would be on my show. She said, “Then he will.”
So, yesterday I finally got around to sending an interview invitation to Dr. Alexander. As I hit the “send” button I didn’t wonder if, I knew it was a when. In less than one hour, he responded that he “would be delighted to be a guest on the show” and we confirmed details.
Damn that law of attraction!
