‘Without birth and death, and without the perpetual transmutation of all forms of life, the world would be static, rhythm-less, undancing, mummified’. ~ Alan Watts
The Law of Perpetual Transmutation Of Energy states that energy is forever moving in and out of form. It is the cause and effect of itself and cannot be created nor destroyed. In order to illustrate this concept lets use water as an example. We all know that water’s chemical composition is H2O. This refers to the fact that water is made up of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom.
Energy Keeps Moving Into Different Forms
One molecule of H2O is the smallest amount of water you can have. Go smaller, and it’s not water anymore, but atoms of oxygen and hydrogen. What you might not know is that these atoms move at various speeds of vibration. Put differently water is energy at a certain rate of vibration. Water changes into ice when we slow down that rate of vibration. Conversely water changes into steam when we accelerate the rate of vibration. In any context the energy that makes up water is not being created nor destroyed it’s moving into different forms such as ice, liquid water or steam.
Thought Energy + Action = Results
So if we get the ‘idea’ to make some ice. That idea was formed in our conscious mind. We were motivated to create the ice because we projected into the future and imagined how refreshing it would be to have ice with our favorite drink. So we got emotionally involved in the process. In order to create ice we realized that we have to take action.
So we put water in a container and popped it into the freezer. We instinctively knew that water kept below a certain temperature would cause the energy in that water to transmute into a lower level of vibration. This created the ice we sought. So thought energy created the idea of ‘ice’ in our mind and by physical action we created the ice from formless substance into the physical manifestation we wanted.
So how does this relate to your success? Your thoughts are also nothing more than cosmic energy waves. They are forever moving in and out of form creating different types of ideas in your conscious mind. Through repeated reflection these ideas are impressed upon your sub conscious mind and stir your emotions. Your emotions are expressed too and through your body. Your body is moved into action, which produces results consistent with the thoughts that perpetuated that action.
You Become What You Think About
If you want to change your results, you must change your thinking. Thinking is the starting point in the process where thoughts become things. Your thought energy creates your life. Put differently the images you hold in your mind will materialize in your results. You become what you think about most of the time.
You need to view energy as the ‘raw material’ and your mind as the ‘factory’. The wonderful thing about energy is that it is infinite. You are never going to run out of this raw material. This energy is always flowing too and through you.
In effect your mind is the factory that processes energy into other forms. So with this energy you fashion an idea in your conscious mind. You are now aware that everything is created twice. Everything was a thought before it became a thing. That is why there is no such thing as an original painting. The artist created the original in their mind before taking action to produce a copy in the external world.
So that idea you fashioned in your conscious mind is a seedling. In order for it to transmute into physical form you need to impress it upon your subconscious mind. The only way to turn an idea over to your subconscious mind is repeated reflection. You need to focus your mind on the idea repeatedly. As Emerson said ‘the only thing that grows is the thing that you give energy to’.
Positive Thinking Creates Motivation
You can achieve this through repeated visualization and affirmations. The more you think about something the stronger it becomes. Focused thought energy on a specific idea will enable that idea to develop roots in your subconscious mind. You have to assume the feeling of the wish fulfilled. Really try to project yourself into the future and imagine what it would feel like to have taken your idea to fruition. The more you visualize your ideal outcome is the more excited and motivated you will become. This motivation acts as the ‘burning desire’ that compels you to take action. This action is essential in order to transmute thought energy into its physical form.
Current Results = Historic Thoughts
You need to realize that your current results are nothing more than the side effects of your historic thoughts. In order to change your results you must change the way you think. There is a direct correlation between the quality of your thinking and the quality of your results. Whatever thought you impress upon the sub conscious mind must move into physical form. It does not matter if this is a positive or negative thought. The sub conscious mind must accept whatever thought energy you impress upon it.
Ideas Are Seeds That Bear Like Fruit
As soon as this thought is passed over to your sub conscious mind, your sub conscious mind will vibrate at a level conducive to attracting that which you have planted. This is best described when you consider that ideas are spiritual seeds. Just like in the physical world seeds produce after their kind. You can’t set a carrot seed and expect a potato to grow. You will always get results based directly on the particular type of seed you have planted.
Negative Thought Seeds = Negative Results
If you forever dwell on lack or limitation then you are transmuting negative vibration into negative outcomes. In effect you are using your subconscious mind against yourself. You cannot generate positive results with negative thought seeds. So many people continue to curse their luck. They lack the awareness to realize there is no such thing as luck. The results you get have a causal relationship to the seeds you sow. To dwell on negative results is to invite more negative results into your life.
Focus On The Results You Seek
You need to develop the ability to create mental images of the results you seek, irrespective of your current results. Yes you realize your current results are there but you focus all your thought energy on the results you seek. This will change your vibration and make you feel optimistic. Optimism is a form of positive expectancy that gives you the motivation to take the actions consistent with the results you seek. This sets off a chain reaction that ultimately attracts the very outcome you seek.
Conversely if you focused on your current results you might get depressed. This is a form of negative energy, which drains your physical energy and demotivates you from taking action. This serves only to amplify your existing results.
So in order to summarize today’s lesson you need to realize that any thought held in mind must move into physical form. You have direct control over the thoughts you think therefore you have direct control over the results you get. Focus all your mental energy on the things you want to materialize in your life and they will materialize. However you need to guard your thoughts because any thing held in mind reproduces after its kind.
A typical example of this law in action is the fear that strikes people when they have to give a talk or presentation in front of a large group of people. Typically fear consumes the person and they spend the preceding days or weeks thinking about all the things that could go wrong. Inevitably when they stand before their peers their fears are realized because they can only reap the results based on the thoughts they have sown.
Conversely the aware person will spend the days before the presentation visualizing all the good that is going to happen. They will see themselves in their minds eye standing confidently before their peers. They will hear themselves deliver a perfect presentation, visualize strong body language and pitch perfect diction. They will feel the feeling of how happy they are afterwards with all their peers congratulating them on a wonderful presentation. As a result that positive energy is transmuted into physical form as a perfect presentation.
