How does classical physics affect our lives, our physical body and personality? Author Veerle De Bock explores how it gives us access to our greater potential.
In the first article of this series we explored Quantum Physics and how the Universe is a field of endless possibilities that surrounds and permeates all matter and all living beings. We also discussed the Quantum Hologram that stores all the information that exists within this field allowing many different realities to be available to us in any given moment. Finally, we looked at how all of this is organised to create our reality in this very moment – right now.
In this article we will explore how classical physics relates to how we live our lives, how we make decisions, how we act and react and, how we see our reality. We will look at how the magic of gravity and Newtonian Mechanics influence our physical body and the fascinating way that Electromagnetism shapes our reality.
Classical Physics and Our Physical Body
Our physical body is the vehicle that transports us through our life’s journey. It is with us through all our life-stories and helps us keep track of those stories along the way. Let’s look at what classical physics can teach us about how our bodies pack the stories away. In particular let’s look at the roles played by gravity and the laws of Newtonian mechanics.
As we all learned at school, gravity is what allows us to stay on the ground and not fly through the sky as helpless objects.
Here is an example of how gravity can help store a story in your body.
When I was 30 weeks pregnant with my son, I started having premature contractions. My son also experienced these contractions from inside my womb.
He was a tiny baby, too young to be born but, nevertheless, something around him was contracting – we can imagine that, for him, it felt as if something was pushing him out of the safety of my womb. It must have been terrifying; it must have felt really unsafe! His whole system would have retracted trying to stay enveloped in water and completely weightless – he wasn’t ready to experience gravity.
Later, as an adult, his body still contains this story of unsafety. He is skinny and does not allow gravity to have much effect on him; it seems as if he floats through his life rather than actually grounding himself anywhere.
Newtonian Mechanics, on the other hand, concerns the relationship between force and motion. Electricity is a good example of a force that follows Newtonian Mechanics. Our nervous system transmits messages through our bodies using electrical impulses. An example of how this affects the body is the way in which our nervous and muscular systems work closely together. Electrical currents from specific areas of our brain send messages to our muscles telling some to contract and others to relax. This harmonious interaction allows us to reach out, walk, dance, stand still and engage with others. All our muscles work through the laws of Newtonian Mechanics, applying force and evoking motion in many different ways.
Another story, this time about my eldest daughter, shows the connection between Newton’s Mechanics and our physical body.
As a child, my daughter felt like a princess, she was the first child, and perceived herself as the centre of the world. And when she was 18 months old, something changed her world drastically – a little boy was born. She was confused, she didn’t like it and it made her feel a bit tense. The electrical messages from her brain towards her muscles were more in favour of contraction. When she was 4 years old another brother came along. She no longer knew how to make sense of who she was, so she contained herself a bit more and her muscles got even tenser. When she was 7 years old she got a little sister as well. At this age, she began to define herself in relation to her siblings. She felt so responsible for them that her muscles tensed still further in order to give her a strong container in which to hold all the duties related to that huge responsibility. As an adult she looks well-shaped and demonstrates an ability to hold herself together and take care of the many expectations of the outside world.
For all of us, there is this ongoing interplay between our physical body and our personality. Our personality is composed of everything that we experience, feel and think. These experiences, feelings and thoughts are vibrations that follow the laws of electromagnetism.
How Electromagnetism Shapes Our Reality
If you break the word down into its two component parts it is clear that electro-magnetism is the combination of electricity and magnetism. So, an electromagnetic field is created when an electrical current engages with a conductor that has magnetizing properties.
To put this in terms of the human body, electrical currents move through our spinal cord and nervous system, through our heart and our brain and through each of our cells while our body acts as a huge conductor which generates an electromagnetic (or energy) field around us. This electro-magnetic field is tightly connected with our physical body and cannot exist without it. In spiritual literature this field is called an ‘aura’ – not everyone can see it, but the laws of electromagnetism tell us that it is definitely there.
Research into electromagnetism and the body has so far been limited to brainwaves (or electromagnetic activity in the brain). Scientists have discovered, by measuring this electromagnetic activity that brainwaves are affected by aspects of consciousness such as peace, anxiety, thoughts and higher states of consciousness.
So, how can we extend this knowledge to our whole energy field?
As we have seen, our energy field is located around and inside our whole body, our brainwaves contribute to it, as do the electromagnetic fields generated by our heart, spinal cord and each of our cells.
When we experience feelings and emotions our attention is drawn to the front of our body and energy field. Think for a moment about how we express our feelings and emotions: we say “my heart is broken” when we are very sad and we have a “gut feeling” when something feels right. The heart and the gut are both situated at the front of the body.
On the other hand, trying to figure out how something makes sense to us brings our attention to our head. Concepts and beliefs about how the world is, are mostly perceived in the upper area of our energy field.
Actions bring our attention to the back of the body and energy field. When we experience stress and busy-ness, we perceive tension in our neck and shoulders.
Finally, higher states of consciousness bring our attention to the whole of our being. A blissful state we often feel in our whole body.
Our personality is a complex whole of all our beliefs, concepts, thoughts, feelings, emotions, our will and our higher states of being. All of which are present in our energy field as electromagnetic vibrations.
Our energy field does exactly what it is meant to do and offers us a way to interpret reality. This interpretation is based on the stories that have happened to us and around us and is coloured by the collective cultural and social beliefs that surround us (you can read more about this here).
To illustrate how this works, let me tell you another story. One day I was giving a lecture and was inviting a lot of comments from the audience. In order to really capture all the contributions, I needed to slow the process down, so I started to listen reflectively, repeating each comment back before writing it down on the flipchart. The interaction felt truly alive and I experienced pleasure in my body, my heart was open and I felt joyful. My thoughts confirmed that I had a right to exist, that what I was doing was meaningful.
Then, all of a sudden, one of the students got really upset and accused me of not listening to her. In that moment, I experienced a tension around my heart. I felt sad. My thoughts were trying to make sense of what was happening. I blamed myself for not being careful enough. I was no longer in control of the situation and felt powerless. I believed that I had to be perfect in order to regain control of the situation.
Classical physics reveals a great deal about who we are and how our actions and reactions unfold and it is through these revelations that we discover how the electromagnetic (or energy) field inside and around us can only exist through our physical body.
Gravity, Newtonian Mechanics and Electromagnetism have much more to offer us than simply storing our stories and offering us a limited reality but in order for them to reveal their magic we need to understand their interplay with Quantum Physics.
The key part is the awareness that we need in order to be able to change any of our actions and/or reactions.
Everything is connected through an amazing field of endless possibilities and we can choose between a variety of possible realities that can organize our day-to-day life.
Our souls obey the laws of Quantum Physics and have access to this astonishing field of endless possibilities.
In my book Becoming What is Changing: Exposition you can explore more about the extraordinary possibilities to shape our energy field and our personality.
The third article of this series will reveal how to play with our astonishing human potential, bringing all the laws of Classical and Quantum Physics into our daily reality.
All your comments are amazing energy vibrations and very welcome.

VEERLE DE BOCK is a physician, healer, facilitator, trainer, coach and author of the trilogy, Becoming What is Changing. She spent nearly three decades of her life as a physician specializing in geriatric care, including a 21-year career as department head in an Antwerp regional hospital. In 2003, she began her study as an energetic healer, teacher, process facilitator and supervisor at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing and, since 2007 has helped many trainees to master these same skills. In 2010 she was trained in the practice of Dynamic Facilitation by Jim Rough, which she now incorporates into her workshops and training sessions. In 2012 she decided to devote her work exclusively to writing, facilitation and coaching. That same year, she devised a new integrative practice of facilitation she calls ‘Guest House Facilitation’ that helps teams learn how to listen and utilise both the inner and outer processes within their organisation, to see it as a dynamic and living organism, and to reconnect to its intrinsic purpose and intention. Her book, Becoming What is Changing: Exposition, is the first part of a trilogy aimed at managers, team leaders and responsible employees who wish to bring this kind of transformation into the workplace, so they can create an environment where people are happy, satisfied and continuously growing.

Thank you for this latest instalment – I am very curious where this little series will lead! I feel like I am being given building blocks for an even greater insight 🙂
I am curious about the interaction you had with the student who accused you of not listening to her. You say that you immediately felt a tension around your heart (physical reaction), you felt sad (emotional reaction), and then your thoughts tried to catch up with what was going on.
As everything is interrelated and this wondrous electromagnetism phenomenon is going on, do you think that the state of being of the student got somehow picked up by your own system, and then it triggered the cascade of feelings and thoughts that followed for you? It makes me think of mirror neurones… Your body somehow started to mirror the sensations in the student’s, and then you had to bring it into the context of your own reality? I am very curious about all this, and how we use this same phenomenon in healing when we track our clients with “Higher Sense Perception” (which may also be electromagnetism related?!)
Thank you again for all that you share!
Thank you for this inspiring comment.
Our mirror neurons help us to translate all what we perceive through normal and high sense perception into our electromagnetic field, into our energy field…. And when we have it in our energy field we are able to connect it with experiences, with the stories we have stored, with emotions, feelings, thoughts, beliefs.
High sense perception uses quantum physics to work and normal sense perception uses classical physics.
High sense perception can be vision, inner knowing, hearing, kinaesthetic sense, smell, taste, intuition, feeling.
With love and gratitude
