The point between an experience and the associated perception you develop is called the inception of your perception: How this affects you every day is the topic of many psychological studies. Sometimes the way you see things doesn’t mirror true events, but perception is so powerful that it doesn’t matter.
From your vantage, perception is the only reality that does matter. This bias colors everything you do, feel, and experience. It even alters the way you see others. Let’s take a closer look at what happens at the intersection of inception and how this affects you every day.
This point, the intersection, is where you form your version of the event and the outcome. It is a version based on how and what you were feeling at the moment of impact.
Are you struggling to see how your perception can change your experience of an event? Here’s an example to clear things up. Imagine rain pouring from the sky. Is rain good or bad?
This depends entirely on your perspective. If you are planning an outdoor event, such as a wedding or family picnic, then maybe seeing that rain is making you upset. However, perhaps there is a farmer on the other side of town. His crops are withering in the drought and he is desperate for relief. To him the same rain storm that you cursed is seen as a blessing. Sometimes there are events that occur outside our control, and we have the choice to see the good or get caught up in anger and frustration.
“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.”
― Wayne W. Dyer
There are simple, mundane moments that only seem magical when we are in the right state of mind. Let’s look at one more example that doesn’t spoil your plans or alter your day. Imagine the night sky when the moon is new, just a sliver in the sky.
Keep in mind that when you are feeling upbeat, happy, and content, the inception (moments) of perception will occur more positively. This is also when you are more likely to See Things How They Are. In this scenario, you appreciate the new moon. What’s more, you marvel at the brightness of the stars and smile your thanks to the Universe.
Remember, like attracts like. If you greet the world with positivity, you will attract and perceive good; it truly affects your experience every day.
Of course, there is a flip side to every coin. If you are feeling challenged, fearful, weak, overly tired, or sick, etc., then the inception of perception will be biased less positively. At a weaken state, we sometimes allow a heavy energy to lay over the event, which clouds how we react to a situation. Unfortunately, that energy tends to stick around, affecting future experiences with the people or activities involved. It can also affect the end result. Instead of marveling at the stars, you’re irritated and disappointed with the absence of light from the moon.
