Let’s talk about the Big Bang Theory for real this time.

These 3 Books Made Me Believe In God, From A Girl Who Used To Be An Atheist

I am writing this because I used to be an atheist. I was bred to love science and math. I learned how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide when I was 5 years old. My brain was wired to be as logical as possible.

Growing up, my life was all about biology, chemistry, physics, followed by test tubes, pipettes, and atoms.

This part of my educational journey, during which I was essentially taught to be an atheist, was also the chapter of life during which I was most inquisitive. I started questioning life and how light can be a particle, wave, and sometimes even both at the same time.

My questions only become more complex where I started to learn more about quantum physics.

Quantum physics is the study of light and its function in life. Trying to learn about it before I experienced a lot of life ended up being difficult, but then became easier as events in my life began to unfold in mysterious ways. I'm the most organized, detail-oriented person I know — at least, I feel that way.

I noticed that even when I planned things perfectly, the most unexpected things would come up and I would find myself scrambling to pick up the pieces.

Would you believe me if I told you I saw all the warning signs but ignored them because I felt my plan was so perfect?

Okay, but who put those warning signs out? Who has that kind of time? These are the questions I would ask myself. It wasn't until studying medicine when I realized I was lost and didn't know what was going on anymore.

Me, Miss Biology Major, having studied the science of life since I was a kid, had no idea how life performs itself.

Let's take my cardiology class, for example. It was anatomy day and I was feeling curious, so I raised my hand and asked the professor a question. “Where is our soul located?" and just as most any medical school professor would answer, the response was “we don't know yet.".

So, basically my world fell apart because there was one thing I believed in and that was souls.

Putting that much effort into schooling to finally attend a medical school and learn they don't know what they're talking about either was mind-blowing! Ask them about a pharmaceutical drug and they will share all of the side effects — because that's what we need more knowledge of, is drugs.

I stopped myself from expecting medical institutions to have answers and I started to dive deeper — and never come up for air.

I fully committed myself to learning about quantum physics, during which I got all the answers I was looking for.

Here are 3 books you can read to learn more about light and the ultimate source; God.

The following 3 books are written by New York Times bestselling author and scientist Gregg Braden. Every concept is explained through historical research-based experiments and scriptures. Enjoy the reckoning!

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
