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. Thoughts travel as electrical impulses along neural pathways. When neurons fire together they wire together, creating electromagnetic fields. These fields are invisible energy, yet they influence the molecules of matter around us the way a magnet organizes iron filings.

We're told that 'thoughts become things', and, although this is true for some things, it is manifestly untrue for others: some of us will never be professional astronauts, for example, no matter how earnestly we think about it. Between the possible and the impossible there is a wide middle ground.
New research and new discoveries in epigenetics, neuroscience, electromagnetism, psychology, public health and quantum physics are demonstrating that thoughts can indeed be profoundly creative. In Mind to Matter , award-winning author Dawson Church examines the scientific facts behind the popular concept of 'manifesting' and reviews its possibilities and its limits.
As we discover how the universe operates synchronistically, we come to understand that while we have individual local minds, we also participate in a universal nonlocal mind. Mind to Matter shows us that as we take charge of our individual power to create, we have the potential, as a species, to catalyze a transformation of our whole world.
