I first discovered this concept when I learned TM back in 2014.
The unified field is the source of everything thought. There's a collective shared unconsciousness that is the source of everything. It answer the question 'where do thoughts come from?'
David Lynch talks a lot about 'The ocean of vibrant consciousness' - the source of all matter. When you dive in TM, you 'experience an ocean of pure consciousness' which is the unified field. He expand on this in the video below.
I'm currently reading Playing the Quantum Field by Brenda Anderson and it provides some practical ways we can tap the power of the field.
Whatever you put into the field resonates back. The greater the emotion, the greater the impact. So if I wake up feeling stressed out that I have too much to do, the field amplifies that effect.
If you tell yourself 'I want to be financially free,' the field will give you just that - the feeling that you WANT to be financially free.
It amplifies back exactly what you ask. So the distinction to grasp is that you must be specific with the outcome, not the desire for the outcome. Thinking instead 'I am financially free' will get you there, not thinking 'I want...'.
If you are feeling stressed out and overwhelmed, guess what? The field will amplify that back to you.
The solution is so easy, but runs counter to our conditioning.
When you find yourself in a whole, stop digging.
Stop. Breathe. Begin to think 'I've got everything under control. True, I have lots to do, but I have all the time I need as well. People will wait. And if they don't, that's not my problem...'
Almost instantly, I'm noticing a sense of calmness rush over me and I crack a smile. I dug the whole into this, but I can also easily step out of the whole I dug. I just forgot that the field amplifies what I am experiencing. Instead of throwing myself up against the wall, I can give myself a gentle back rub.
