I have always experienced that my personal mindset, actions, emotions, thoughts do seem to have an effect on those around me. The things people don't see about me, still have an effect.

How does this work?


Here are some more common examples I have seen:

My example: my brother and I grew up always fighting. I later moved across the country and got my life in a better place. My state of mind was more positive, clear, health, optimistic. My brother had no idea of this work I was doing on myself yet started to call and e-mail me more. Almost like my work for myself was benefiting him too even though he had no clue i was doing that....

An example in someone else life I have seen:
A parent tells his teenagers not to watch violence on TV. When they are around, he even only watches G rated TV himself.

When they are away he watches violence, sex, drugs, etc on TV. His children grow up only to watch the shows with drugs, sex, violence, etc, even though they never saw him watching such things.

We are always energy and are always vibrating at a certain frequency. When we begin to change our minds or work on self improvement we are raising our vibration and changing frequencies and thus are emitting energy from this improved place. So it doesn't matter if we are doing something in private or public the energy we emit will always affect those we interact with or are connected to, either in a positive or negative way - the great thing is that when you help yourself, you also help those you interact with.

This answer is a bit out there and doesn't answer the question why or how it is so. But I am sharing my understanding of what I have gathered mostly from trying to understand the Seth material.

Your experience of reality is your version of the universe as seen from where you stand. Everything that you participate in, experience, see, smell, touch, contemplate are all but one version of unlimited potential of reality as seen from your point of reference within the moment of NOW.

You can almost say that the reality around you reflects back to you your own expectations like a movie set where the props are all created with only the side that is going to end up on film. If you walk around to the other side of the movie set you see unfinished surfaces & construction scaffolding.

In reality the details within events that are not relevant to your preconceived expectations almost become invisible to your attention. Just like looking for a lost wallet that is sitting right in front of your face, but you don't see it because in your consciousness the idea that the wallet is lost is the most relevant version of your interaction with it.

To complicate things even further, apparently we create or branch off into many multiple and alternate versions of reality in real time, where portions of ourselves branch off into exploring the outcome of the many alternate possibilities of a given situation.

So according to this idea a version of you branched off to develop a relationship of similar behavior with a version of your brother, while another version of you continued on the previous path where you continued to have disagreements with him.

Don't ask me how that even works because I have no idea. I am only repeating an idea that I have been trying to comprehend. But there is no way to test this theory.

What I have been able to test has proven to be true. I have been able to change the behavior of others towards me by envisioning my expectations in interacting with others. When you put the effort it does work. My problem is that when you stop the effort (of focus) it goes back to favor whoever is in the naturally dominant position (of state of mind)

My understanding is that all this multiple versions of potential reality are not physically materialized. Only the point of reference where you are the observer is the Manifested physically available reality. Everything else is only available to your consciousness.

If you can get you head around this you can start to see how Burt Goldman's concepts of Quantum Jumping maybe possible.

However it's always good to find a way to test what interests you.

You had me until the whole "branching off" thing. But +1 anyway for your second, third and fourth paragraphs, which I believe fully explain the problem.

More positive things definitely seem to come into our lives, including relationships, when we are in the Vortex, and living a fun, positive life.

Did you ever experience feeling someone was looking at you from a distance and you looked up to see this someone looking directly at you? How did you know to look up at this same person that was looking at you from a distance?

Did you ever find your self starring at the back of the head of a person, and this same person turned around and looked directly at you, as if he knew that you were looking at him, although his face was turned away from you? How did he know you were looking at him?

My daughter got the same birthday card from both me, and her Dad. How did he know to buy the same card, or how did I know to buy the same card? There is an old saying: great minds think alike. But the truth is: we are all born with this same innate ability.

Back2Basics! When I read your question My first thought was the Law of Resonance at work. Here in Germany there is alot of writings base on the Law of Resonance. The application is always inconnection to Relationshipsone of the books I read is named Heart Magnet! I found a listing of the Universal Laws enjoy the reading.

The Law of Resonance states that all energy resonates at a specific frequency enabling only energy of a harmonious frequency to attach to it creating your physical results The Law of Resonance, like all other Universal Laws, once understood, will provide you with a greatly enhanced ability to begin "consciously", intentionally and consistently attracting and experiencing more of the desired outcomes that you desire to experience and envision for yourself. Once this conscious awareness of The Law of Resonance is attained, it will enable you to clearly understand the importance and necessity of consciously directing and maintaining the kind and quality of the energy that you project through your thoughts, emotions and beliefs which in turn will enable you to begin attracting and experiencing the desired "tangible physical results" that you may currently be "unconsciously attracting" and that so many "perceive" to be random acts of nature that fall outside of their ability to consciously control. Although a widely held belief...like many beliefs held today, as you'll discover, it is and can only continue to limit you if you choose to allow it to. The Law of Resonance will enable you to break free from the mindset as well as the limitations that the vast majority place on themselves and enable you to begin experiencing a kind and quality of life that the majority "unconsciously" choose not to. A deeper look into The Law Of Resonance will provide you with the "seemingly" hidden key of all the keys concerning the unwavering process of manifestation...meaning how each of the events, conditions and circumstances are drawn or attracted to you and created in every area of your life, whether physically, relationally, emotionally, financially or spiritually. In fact ALL physical (or seen) as well as the unseen events, conditions and circumstances which make up your personal life experience as well as those which are continually being created in the entire Universe, are only possible and happen as a result of the Law of Resonance. The Law of Resonance which is closely interconnected and works in harmony with the Law of Attraction is the Universal Law which determines precisely what it is that you will attract into your life based on the resonance or frequency of of the energy that you are projecting. Although many have become aware of the Law of Attraction recently, many believe that it's the Law Of Attraction that's solely responsible for determining what is drawn into their life experiences in the physical world. Although to an extent that's true, The Law of Attraction is merely the perfectly constructed, immutable and unwavering law which makes certain that "something" is attracted and created based on individual choices that are made by you. The Law of Resonance is the law which determines precisely WHAT IS attracted based on the resonance or the frequency of energy that is chosen by you through your emotional response system and as a result of that choice determines the kind and quality of the resonance or frequency projected which the Law of Attraction utilizes to determine precisely what IS attracted. The simplest way to put it would be to say that The Law of Resonance is the law that assures that all energy continuously vibrates at a given frequency and depending on the vibratory output of this emitted frequency is what the Law of Attraction uses to determine what additional energies are attracted to one another which join together, resulting in a transmutation of the energy from the unseen or spiritual realm, producing outcomes in physical form. To provide more clarity, the Law of Attraction will attract to you every event, condition and circumstance experienced in your life which is determined by the vibrational resonance created based on how you perceive what's going on around you. The Law of Attraction makes no judgments, distinctions or determinations between what you might perceive to be good or bad, right or wrong, etc. and is TOTALLY unbiased in what is attracted to you. It only serves and acts as the delivery system, delivering to you precisely what you are asking for based on your resonance. The Law of Resonance simply determines the vibrational intensity of what you choose to project which determines what you are asking for. The Law of Attraction operates precisely the same without bias for EVERY person in precisely the same manner. It is an individuals resonance, the energy which is projected outward which determines exactly what those events, conditions and circumstances in each persons life consist of.

The Law Of Vibration states that anything that exists in our universe, whether seen or unseen, broken down into and analyzed in it's purest and most basic form, consists of pure energy or light which resonates and exists as a vibratory frequency or pattern.

The Law Of Attraction The Law of Attraction is the Universal Law which ensures that whatever energy is broadcast out into the universe is joined by (or attracted to) energies that are of an equal or harmonious frequency, resonance or vibration.

The Law Of Cause And Effect states that any action produces or returns a result or outcome in exact proportion to the act or cause which initiated it. Also referred to as Sowing and Reaping or Karma.

The Law Of Resonance The Law of Resonance is the Universal Law which determines the various vibratory patterns or frequencies which are determined and projected based on various thoughts, beliefs and emotions and the resulting projected frequency which activates the Law of Attraction ensuring that this resonance or projected energy can only harmonize with energies that vibrate or resonate at a similar harmonious vibratory frequency which determine and create your physical results.

The Law Of Growth The Law of Growth is the Universal Law which is one of the simplest to comprehend. It simply exists to ensure that something always grows, that creation is constant and determined by the kind and quality of seed which is planted. In the case of Universal truth this seed is determined by the energy projected. Through it's immutable, unwavering and predictable operation you can become conscious and purposeful in what you project or plant which will determine what you will receive or harvest in each area of your life.

The Law Of Abundance The Law Of Abundance can best be understood by looking at the continual growth and unlimited resources available within our Universe. It is continuously producing and multiplying effortlessly through the power of the above Universal Laws, the abundance of which is determined only by the kind and quality of the seed or energy projected.

The Law Of Polarity Do you ever wonder why in a world of unfathomable Abundance why it is that we must sometimes go through events, conditions and circumstances that we perceive as unpleasant? Becoming aware of and developing a deeper understanding concerning the Law Of Polarity may provide the insight that you need. The Law Of Reciprocity The Law Of Reciprocity which is intricately connected and harmonizes perfectly with all Universal Law, initiates and creates an unwavering and unfailing process which “Reciprocates” meaning to give and take mutually or to return in kind or degree.

@G16: this is great. Is there a tool that we can use that measures our frequency in real time and tells us what type of things it could attract? (The law of growth, that has sparked a new question I will post.) thank you.

I don't know of any tool that measures our frequency other than our emotions which are indicators of our rise in vibration. Positive feelings brings us in alignment with our true self.
