We’ll start here by making what may seem like a strange statement. The answer to this question “Do babies create their own reality?” is the same as the answer we gave to the previous question “Can a healer, heal you?” And it’s the same answer we would give to many of the questions you ask like “Is this going to be the year of great awakening?” or “Are children being born today inherently more aware of their connection?”, “Are they indigo children?”, “Are they ‘cable ready’?”. And it’s the same answer we give you when you ask us to predict your future, or the behavior of your pets, or about the “true purpose” of your life. The answer is “You’re the one writing this story, so you must tell us”.
One memory from what this one thinks of as his past, is that, as a young child, when on an outing with his family and with several other adults in the group, he asked the question. “What’s under the ground holding the earth up?” it caused quite a reaction, and although he persevered with the question, none of the answers offered made any sense to him. We bring that story to our discussion because it illustrates a point. Behind every question is a set of assumptions, and until all parties agree on what those assumptions are, the question cannot be answered.
Atheists and theists can spend all day in heated discussion without arriving at anything close to agreement, because the atheist has started from the assumption that if anything non-physical existed, there would be evidence of it that you could detect and verify in the physical world. In fact, that assumption to them is so self-evident, that they claim to make no assumptions. Theists of course believe in spiritual things, but most of them also make the assumption that the physical world is a shared external reality, and once again that seems so self-evident, that it rarely gets challenged.
These are not just assumptions made for the purpose of discussion, they’re really basic belief-choices, and if we’re going to move beyond Law Of Attraction 101 to a more complete understanding of the nature of your virtual reality, we really have to go a little deeper. Our intent is to get you simple clear answers to all your questions, and that’s not possible without an understanding of the true nature of things.
Of course it’s not a requirement that you explore things at this deeper level for you to have a happy creative life. It’s not a requirement that you know or do any particular thing. All you really need to know is two simple things – that you create your reality from what you choose to believe and expect, and that nothing is more important than feeling good because that tells you you’re heading in the direction of what you want. It’s just that when you start thinking about this space/time fantasy of yours, questions arise.
If there’s one subject that seems to trip many people up in their understanding of the Law Of Attraction, it’s the subject of very young children. “Do babies create their own reality, and if so, how do they get born into famine, or disaster, or into illness?” Well we could do what many spiritual philosophies attempt to do and begin a long and complex answer – that every consciousness chooses their own virtual reality (which is true), and that you cannot understand the “why” of other people’s choices (and that is also true). Some religions would say you cannot understand God’s choices. But for many of you, these answers are not very satisfying.
To get to a better answer, we have to start by understanding the nature of reality. We’ll begin once again with what’s Absolute and cannot be changed, and then we’ll get to babies and grownups and animals and plants and the price of eggs, and you’ll see how it all fits together. And somewhere in all of this we’ll talk some more about techniques you can use for stepping more and more powerfully into your role as a creator.
We’ll begin by make two declarations about that story of yours. Firstly, it’s unique to you, and that’s not so hard to believe because you know yourself as a unique individual. But here’s the not so obvious truth, and it’s the key to all of this. That world you’re in is also unique to you. It’s your very own version of so-called reality. We often describe it as a virtual reality because that’s literally what it is. If you continue to think of it as a one solid world you share with everybody else, then none of this – the Law Of Attraction, conscious creation, all of these things we talk about – makes any sense.
The truth of it might at first seem way out to you, but it’s actually elegantly simple. Despite appearances, there is not One World out there you all share. There is you (one of many versions) inhabiting the matching version of Your World (one of many versions) which by Law Of Attraction intersects with one matching version (one of many) of everyone else’s world. You have within you a complex tapestry of expectations about everything, and it sits mostly in the background beneath the level of your consciousness. It’s the story of Your Life On Earth.
Making changes to your world means rewriting parts of that story. It takes focus and commitment, and when you start down that path, it really helps you to stay the course if you have the confidence that comes from being able to make sense of it all. The good news is that you don’t have to take a leap of faith, and you don’t have to suspend logic, because it’s all logical and understandable.
Yes – we know your world looks like it’s one flowing, continuous, shared physical thing – that’s the miracle of this Space/Time virtual reality, and yes – those other versions of you and the world also exist simultaneously in a parallel universe. You are not be aware of those other versions because the shape of the consciousness you have chosen focuses on only one, but every time you make a new belief choice, you literally step into a different version of you and Your World. And in that new world, you intersect with the versions of everybody and everything that match your new tapestry of expectations.
What you’re certain about shows up. What you think is probable, mostly happens. What you know as possible but improbable will happen occasionally. What you know is impossible will never happen. All that is a part of your expectation tapestry. Your chosen beliefs determine which version of everything you encounter. So do babies create their own reality?
Well we would say that if by your chosen expectations, in Your World you are matching up and intersecting with other consciousnesses, then be they adults, or babies, or extraterrestrials, all will be creating their own reality. But the real answer to your question is that nothing exists as something “out there” that needs to be understood and explained. It’s all an inside job. The definition of everything is inside of you. That is why we call it Your World, because it is yours – unique to you, and you’re creating it second by second. Every time you catch yourself pondering why things are the way they are, the answer is that you have chosen them to be that way.
Can you see how this works? There is nothing and nobody but you making choices about Your World. In that tapestry of yours, do you believe that some children are born into disaster or illness? If no, then in Your World, there will be none of that. If yes, then in your world, such things will happen. Will they happen to you or someone close to you? That depends on where your vibrational set point is. If you are living in fear and uncertainty, then perhaps yes. Everything that intersects with you is a match to you. In Your World, babies and grownups and animals and plants and the price of eggs, will show up within the boundaries you have set by your expectations.
As this one likes to say, “Even as there is a Flat Earth Society for those that believe the world is flat, one day there will be a One World Society for those that still believe in one shared physical reality”, and with those words he’s declaring that there’s a version of reality in which that is true and he’s inviting you to join him in that version. This may at first sound like a radical concept, but we encourage you not to see it as too complex to understand. It’s elegantly simple. It’s just a new way of seeing things. If it seems tricky at first to imagine multiple versions of everything, just understand the concept. Then for the first time you will be playing the game while holding ALL the puzzle pieces, and you will start to see what a difference this can make!
So how do you change to a different version of you and Your World? Firstly, be aware, be as ongoingly aware as you can, of how you feel. Then whenever you feel negative, WHENEVER you feel negative, ask yourself what it is that you’re expecting that is not in line with what you want. You may have to dig a little to surface that piece of your tapestry, but with a little diligence and with a little practice, you can do it. Bring it into the light of day and see if for what it is – simply a choice you once made to believe things are a certain way. Then let it go. Let it fade. Let it die. Now step mentally and literally into a new version of the world – a world in which that lie does not exist.
Your beliefs are not based on what-is. What-is is formed from your beliefs, so there’s literally nothing you cannot be, do or have. You are not a human physical space-occupying entity in a time-based world. You’re a time-less and space-less consciousness creating all of this from within. Let’s see if we can challenge you to step a little outside the fixture you think of as time. Try this on for size. You can think of your life as starting from the point when you were born. That’s probably how you most easily think of it. Well that’s one version of your back story.
You can also think of your life as starting today when you woke up, which is to say when you stepped into this particular version of your consciousness this morning. That was your beginning, and all your history, your so-called “past”, is just something you made up and memorized before you began the game this morning. It’s like the words that appear at the start of some historical movies declaring that it’s the year such and such and the king is so and so, and the kingdom is in trouble .. and so on. IT’s the back-story. So now you’re in this day of your life which will end when you quit consciousness tonight. Perhaps you’ve played out this game out over a lifetime of “days”. Perhaps this “day” is the only “life” like this you’ll experience.
Think about the implications of these scenarios because here’s what’s interesting about all of them. From an infinite and time-less perspective, all are equally true. And lest you begin to think “Well Terah, that that might be true from your perspective”, let us also say that from a thinking-you here-and-now perspective, all those scenarios are still equally true. All are equally valid ways of describing you and everything about you. Can you see what that tells you? All of it, every single piece of it, is yours to choose. You can have it be any way you want it to be. What you choose to believe, becomes.
So what has become in this particular version of your game is a space/time world and in it you are a human being. What has become is that there are other conscious entities just like you, and you humans are the highest order of consciousness on the planet. There are also cats and dogs and many types of animals you’ve created as lesser conscious entities. You may be among those who believe that in the greater universe there are extraterrestrials that have evolved to higher orders of consciousness, and if so, those also exist. You may believe that some of them are now visiting Earth, and if so, they are and you may encounter them. All of this is as you’ve chosen to believe it is.
So do babies create their own reality? As a conscious entity, yes they do. That’s the Law Of Attraction at work, but by that same law, the versions of them that show up in Your World, unique to you, will be a match to your beliefs and expectations, even as the version of you that’s showing up in their world is a match to their creative choices. You could equally ask, do dogs create their own reality? Are you beginning to see that there’s not some absolute truth about the way babies and dogs show up in your world. There’s not some divine rule about how they think, or what they think. All of it is as you expect it to be.
If you don’t know about something, it doesn’t exist. You might believe there are many things about your world you’re yet to discover, and if so, from time to time you’ll discover new things about it. What that simply means is that within the possibility boundaries you have set up, new things will appear, and as you choose to believe in them, they begin to exist. If it’s not an Absolute fact of life, then it’s a part of your chosen story. Time is a part of your story. Space is a part of your story. The physical you is a part of your story. The co-called law of nature is a part of your story. Even where you are on the scale of higher or lower levels of consciousness is a part of your story. It’s your story and you can change any part of it.
This is the truth of who you are at your essence, and the choices you can make. So now let’s come back down to earth. You’re in this world as it is right now, and as a function of immersing yourself in it, you’ve stopped thinking about your divinity. Most of you are so intensively engaged in this adventure that you’ve forgotten who you are. As we always say, we are not in any way trying to talk you out of playing your game. It’s just that when you ask how to make things better, we advocate for some balance. We say, pause more often and know who you are. We say be more conscious of how you feel, and take action whenever your feelings turn negative. Know the truth and it will set you free.
