When I interviewed Gregg for my book, Sixty Seconds: One Moment Changes Everything, he told me a powerful story about the mechanics of prayer. It deepened my understanding of universal laws and transformed the way I prayed.

In this hour-long video, Gregg expounds on the dynamics of prayer and offers breathtaking scientific evidence that human beings are connected beyond space and time to the very stuff the universe is made of. This discovery has enormous implications for peace and healing not only in our own lives but in the world at large.

Watch this video and you may never again look at life the same way.

You want more insight from Gregg? You got it! In the following interview, Gregg expounds on what current planetary energetic changes mean for our own lives we well as for our prospects of consciously co-creating a better world.


Spiritual Tradition and Western Science

I’ve had the opportunity to travel throughout the world. I have been on every continent except Antarctica. I have been in some of the most pristine, highest mountains in the world, remote villages in the Himalayas and the Andes, as well as along the rivers near the cradles of civilization.

And one of the most interesting things that I’ve found is that it is only here in the West that we feel this need for logic-based explanations — like the concept of the Unified Field, or the Consciousness Grid — for how everything works: the need for proof every step of the way.

And I think this is because in other parts of the world, as in many ancient traditions, people do not perceive the need to engineer the forces of Nature. Rather, they accept the relationships as they are, and then apply them in their lives.

So when we go into the Dead Sea Scrolls, for example, or some of the Gnostic traditions, or the old Egyptian or Native traditions, we find that they were not actually trying to figure out how things worked. They just accepted things as they were, and then asked, “How do we apply this in our lives? How do we create miraculous healings in our bodies? How do we invite the forces of Nature to create rain for our crops so that we can survive?”

In the West, we want to know why and how because we choose to engineer our world. We choose to engineer the forces of Nature, and to do so, we have to understand how Nature functions.

I’m not saying that there’s a right, wrong, good, or bad in these different perspectives, but I am saying that the ancient traditions seem to contribute the most intact records of who we are in the Cosmos and how we relate to Creation. It’s just that in our world of science, technology, and engineering, the ancient texts have not been well received or given much credence because they do not explain the why or the how of Nature.

But these texts do tell us how to deal with the relationships that already exist.

Our scientific concept of the Unified Field and the Consciousness Grids is reflected in these texts as Oneness or Unity. We are are not simply a part of the Earth, these texts tell us. We are the Earth. We are not simply a part of the Force that governs all Creation. We are that Force.

Further, in my travels I have had the opportunity to correlate the relationships between the measurable physical changes that are going on in our world with the predictions made in some of the most cherished traditions of our time: the Hindu, Buddhist, Egyptian, Mayan, Native North American, South American, ancient Hebrew, pre-Christian, and Christian traditions.

And I have found that all of them, as different as they may appear on the surface, refer to this current time in history as one of great change on the Earth.

And many of the traditions that remain intact take us one step further. They say that this isn’t a change we can sit back and watch. Instead, this change is actually a catalyst that invites us, as individuals and collectively, also to make changes within ourselves. We are being called upon to reconcile the meaning of this great change in our lives — day in and day out — in our careers, our relationships, our health, our bodies, and in the peace or lack of peace between nations.

Reconciling these things within our own bodies actually prepares us to acclimate to the changes that Earth is undergoing.

This need for change within ourselves is the piece I saw that was missing from scientific and technological traditions.

Oneness and the Unified Field

Almost universally, ancient texts and traditions say to us, in the language of their time, that we are part of all that we see, that we are related through a Force to the events of our world, to one another, to the processes within our bodies and the Cosmos and beyond. In our most sacred traditions, this Force is described as all-powerful, something that permeates all of Creation. It’s not “out there” somewhere. It is a part of ourselves as well as a part of all that we perceive.

Now Western science, beginning in about 1993, through accredited academic and scientific institutions, has performed experiments with unexpected — and in some cases very surprising — results, experiments demonstrating that the ancient tenets appear to be true. In these experiments, the only way that the curious and bizarre behavior of nature and particles in the subatomic world, the quantum world, could be explained was if those particles were all connected through a previouisly unrecognized Force.

So what’s happening right now, in the early years of the 21st Century, is that Western science is moving toward accepting the ancient idea of this unity field that links all of Creation.

Some scientists are calling this field Nature’s Mind. Some scientists are calling it the Mind of God (a famous name given to it by Stephen Hawking in his book A Brief History of Time.) Many researchers now are calling it the Quantum Hologram

This unity field, this Quantum Hologram, responds to the things that we do and the way we think and feel. It allows us as individuals to participate in the events of our lives rather than feeling hopeless as we stand by and watch the world teeter on the brink of war, or watch our loved ones succumb to illness and diseases that we really don’t understand.

Western scientists now not only identify this field, but they give it characteristics. They say that this field appears to be everywhere, all the time, a form of energy that’s already present rather than being generated in one place and transmitted somewhere else.

It’s everywhere all the time and appears to have been with us since Creation began, what physicists called the “Big Bang.”

So it’s always been here, it’s everywhere all the time, and it also appears to have what Western scientists are now calling “intelligence.” It appears to be an intelligent field in that it responds to the language of coherent human emotion.

Except for the language, this field sounds very similar to what the ancients called God.

The Language of God?

The language the Unified Field seems to speak is that of coherent emotion.

What’s incoherent emotion? It’s the kind of emotion we experience when we are feeling one way, thinking another way, and expressing something different from either our thoughts or our feelings.

Let’s say for example we come to work on a Monday morning and we just had a terrible weekend with our family, and we’ve lost a loved one. Life has not gone very well, and we’re feeling all that on one level. And a co-worker asks us how our weekend was, and we answer, “Oh, it was fine.”

Because we don’t want to talk about it, we end up blocking ourselves from having a coherent feeling and a coherent emotion. We’re not being honest, so we do not have our emotions aligned with our thoughts, feelings, and expression.

Coherent emotion happens when what we are thinking, feeling, and expressing are all in alignment. When we have coherent emotion, it can be measured and documented that there also are effects that extend beyond our bodies.

For example, if we prayed for our loved one to be healed, but we were thinking it probably wasn’t going to happen, and feeling fear of loss, then that prayer would not be speaking the “language” of the Quantum Hologram.

But in the same example, if we feel and think that our loved one is already healed — or in the example of praying for peace, that peace already exists in our world — that triggers a series of processes in our bodies.

First, it creates a chemical shift, a shift in the pH levels, i.e., the alkalinity and the acidity in our bloodstream. And it changes the hormonal levels of our body. The life-affirming hormone precursor DHEA, for example, increases over 100 percent in our bodies in the space of only six hours in the presence of coherent emotions of appreciation and gratitude.

By contrast, the life-depleting hormones like cortisol, the stress hormone, decrease over 23 percent in that same six hours in the presence of incoherent emotion.

So we know that emotion is triggering processes within our bodies. And now we know that those processes have quantum effects that extend beyond our bodies into our families, into our communities, into the societies that surround us.

So it is through coherent emotion that we affect the Unified Field, or the Consciousness Grids, in a purposeful way.

The Need for Personal Change

If we are the Earth, if we are the Force, it follows that when Earth goes through changes — for example, when the magnetics of the Earth change, or if we have a polar reversal — our bodies are going to change, as well.

In other words, these kinds of changes are having direct effects upon our perceptions of space and time, upon our relationships, our romances, our careers, our sleep patterns, and how we view ourselves in relation to one another. All of those things are affected by changes in the Earth.

And I think most of my readers will agree that each of us is experiencing, at least to some degree, changes in our personal lives, right now, that are reflecting the kinds of changes that are going on in the Earth at large.

And further, in the language of the ancients and our most cherished spiritual traditions, faith moves us into a “space,” where we can affect the forces of Nature around us and bring about the kinds of changes in our world that we call miracles.

Or as Western science would put it, coherent human emotion produces a chemical change in our bodies, and that chemical change has quantum effects that extend beyond our bodies and bring about changes in our physical world (and now it’s no longer a “miracle”).

But if we were going to make a flow chart of these two ways of describing what happens, the flow chart would be the same for the scientific and the traditional world view.

In the Essene texts and in the Hebrew and the Christian texts, the way that this is described is that when thought, feeling, and emotion become one — in other words, when they are all aligned — then we say to the mountain, “Move!” and the mountain moves.

In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• How do you reconcile the “free will vs. Divine Will” conundrum?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?

Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.

sixty-seconds-coverPhil is also the author of Sixty Seconds: One Moment Changes Everything, a collection of 45 inspiring, life-changing stories from prominent authors and thought leaders he interviewed. The roster of storytellers includes Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, Caroline Myss, Larry Dossey, Rachel Naomi Remen, Bernie Siegel, Dean Ornish, and Christiane Northrup. Sixty Seconds has been translated into four languages: Italian, German, Spanish, and Portuguese. Reading this book is like spending a few minutes face to face with each of the contributors and listening to their personal stories.
