Mind to Matter: The Astonishing Science of How Your Brain Creates Material Reality
Every creation begins as a thought, from a symphony to a marriage to an ice cream cone to a rocket launch. When we have an intention, a complex chain of events begins in our brains.
Church traces the complex biology of thought, from electrical impulses flowing through our neural networks, to hormones and enzymes produced in our cells, to changes in our environment. When the electromagnetic activity of the brain is measured using MRI and EEG technology, it shows that in states of peak creativity, specific frequencies are produced. Brain scans of people in states of "flow," such as elite athletes, mystics, healers and peak performers, exhibit a unique electromagnetic signature. Those suffering from depression and anxiety have a completely different brain wave pattern.
While electromagnetic fields are invisible energy, they organize the matter around them in the same way that a bar magnet organizes metallic particles around it. Church is especially interested in research showing that certain frequencies generated by our brains regenerate tissue, from nerve cells to blood corpuscles stem cells. These frequencies are more pronounced in the brains of long-term meditators, healers, and peak performers.
Neural signaling pathways we use frequently grow and develop. This produces resilience if we cultivate positive emotions like compassion and love. If we habitually harbor emotions like fear and stress, it stimulates the development of opposing pathways. Over time, Church finds, "the software of mind becomes the hardware of brain." The frequencies of coherent brains in flow states actually organize the material environment around themselves.
The book uses over 150 illustrations, and draws from recent discoveries in epigenetics, neurobiology, electromagnetism, social psychology, cymatics, and quantum physics to trace each step in the process by which mind creates matter. The science in the book is personalized with many case histories of people who harnessed the power of their minds to create sudden and dramatic change in their lives. Some had spontaneous healings from diseases like terminal cancer and AIDS, while others found sudden wealth.
Church believes that most people are using only a small fraction of their creative abilities. As we learn the techniques that bring us into a state of flow, we shift our minds and bring the electromagnetic fields of our brains into coherence. He shows how with practice, we can change these neural information flows, our energy fields, and the world around us.
As Mind to Matter drops each piece of the scientific puzzle into place, it leaves us with a profound understanding of the enormous creative potential of our minds. It also gives us a road map to cultivating these coherent brain states in our daily lives.
