The following is excerpted from Active Consciousness: Awakening the Power Within, by Amy L. Lansky, PhD, published by R.L.Ranch Press.
At each moment of time — the Now — you stand at the gateway to an infinite number of possible futures in higher dimensional space. This gateway is the Choice Point.
Some of these futures are more likely to occur than others. If you do nothing, one of these probable futures will play itself out in a fairly predictable, even mechanistic way.
But as a conscious being, you also have the ability to affect how the future unfolds. Your experience of this ability is the sensation of free will.
One of the ways you can exert a force upon this unfolding is to use explicit action. Another way is through the subtle force of Active Consciousness, which allows you to enable unlikely unfoldings to occur.
According to the Columbia Encyclopedia, a field is a ?region throughout which a force may be exerted.? Back in the 1800s, chemist and physicist Michael Faraday developed this concept in order to explain the mysterious properties of magnets. People at the time were perplexed by the way magnets could exert instantaneous forces upon metal objects when nothing seemed to be transmitted between them. Faraday hypothesized that magnets are always emanating an influence or force; we just can?t see it. And because a magnet?s sphere of influence?its magnetic field?is ever-present, it seems to exert a force instantaneously, without any form of physical contact or obvious mode of transmission.
