Manifest the Future By Changing Your Past

Did you ever wish for a do-over?

Maybe a big moment that fell flat or a life-changing decision you wished you’d made differently? Or maybe there was a big fight or a traumatic accident you’d like to re-write.

Some folks might struggle with this concept, but conscious creators know we can gift ourselves with a different past when it serves.

Why might we do such a thing?

Perhaps we choose a different past because we can feel the lingering effects of it on present day life. Or we might choose a different past to set ourselves up for better success in manifesting what we want today.

I’m not talking about simply changing the way you think about or perceive what actually happened, although that practice in itself is valuable.

What I mean here is actually choosing a different past … which leads to a different reality in present day.

How is this possible?

Thomas Hertog said, “Quantum mechanics forbids a single history.”

In a multiverse where everything that could happen is happening (on some level that’s hard for me to grasp), and that it’s all happening right now (since linear time is an illusion), that gives us access to events that might otherwise be considered “already done.” We just plug into a different past in order to create a different present and future.

Science has been proving the malleable quality of the “past” for some time now, with a variety of mind-blowing experiments where past results are altered by present day participants.

MacGregor Campbell wrote, “According to quantum physics, there may be no consistent reality. Not only do we change the outcome of experiments by what we choose to measure, but we can alter those results after they’ve already happened.”

They’re doing it in the labs, and we can do it at home ourselves.

In fact, Cynthia Sue Larson says we’re already doing it, even though we might not realize it: “Each and every one of us can and does change the past, though we are seldom aware this is what is going on.”

William Allen concurs by writing that, “The past is always changing whether you notice it or not.”

So maybe it’s time to add this manifesting skill to our conscious creation repertoire?

We’re discussing this very topic today at Good Vibe University. (You don’t have to be a member to join the live calls!)

But for those who’d like a quick tutorial on how to choose an alternate past, here’s the skinny:

Simply choose the event you’d like to change, and re-imagine it differently.

Spend a few minutes each day experiencing this different event in your mind’s eye, and that’s it.

This works best when you are not attached to outcome or flowing strong negative emotion on the subject.

I’ve done it before with great success after just envisioning an alternate past one time only. (I just held a light and easy revision in mind and then let it go.) Within days I saw dramatic results on an entrenched five-year situation. (I’ll share on today’s call.)

In the meantime, if you’ve got stories or tips to share about changing your past, please do!

  • For me, this idea of altering the past to change the here/now breaks down when you consider that time is a mental construct we use to make sense and order our experiences. In fact, everything exists here and now. That means that anything you are experiencing, like say $100,000 in the bank, is a vibration that has in this here/now a past, present, and future on your illusory time line.
    It’s not that you can’t alter the past to move to a new vibration, you can.
    Like in the example above, if you want to shift from $100,000 to $1 Million in the bank, you can look at where you made 10 $10,000 sales in the past, and change it to 10 $100,000 and you have successfully shifted your here/now to a vibration of having a million dollars. However, a more direct route would be to shift you vibration in the here/now.
    So to me, changing the past is adding a level of complexity. If you are that wrapped up in the time line, you still have to deal with all the usual suspects–worthiness, evils of money, who you will become, perceived difficulty– but now you are adding trying to suspend disbelief in manipulating time.
    And the best way to do that is to see that time is a construct and everything exists in the here/now.
    So I guess what I’m saying is that past manipulation is simply unnecessary mental gymnastics.

    This was a teaching of Neville Goddard. He called it revision.

  • Alex says:

    Manifestation concept really surprises me sometimes. The concept that we can achieve everything we want with part in how it works with actual science is fascinating. Great blog post.

  • Elle says:

    Ah, yes, one of the topics that led me to LOA!!!!!!
    If anyone on the forum would please mention how to change the future, that would be great! to elaborate, I am speaking in the context of an exam I already took. I read here and also heard many times before that the result can be changed even after taking the exam. Any input will be deeply appreciated, as always. I am already appreciating and looking back on my preparation for the exam with extreme fondness and wonderful memories, so I feel and know I am on the right track and the future will be bright!
    Good vibes to everybody!

    • Jeannette says:

      I could have sworn I had a post on re-paving (as opposed to the traditional pre-paving discussed often in LOA circles), but I’m not finding it now.
      Basically, just focusing on what you want (rocked that exam!) rather than letting your mind drift off to what you don’t want is how you choose the reality where you rocked it vs didn’t rock it. I’m still looking for that article, though! 🙂

      • Sweety says:

        So that means if after taking the exam.. i re-write the answers (correct answers) in my mind.. Visualising that i am writing the correct answers in my exam.. This will help me change the outcome of the exam..!
        So do you mean that we can actually correct our mistakes and clear the exam..!!
        Plz do reply..
        Thank you for the wonderful posts.. It’s really motivating.. 🙂
        Lots of love..

  • Amanda says:

    I also love this. Am sure I’ve changed my “past”, but only because my siblings and friends can’t believe my perception/memories. Because if we do indeed change the “past” we wouldn’t remember from what we changed it, right? Our choice would seem to be the only “past” there was.
    Would love to really incorporate the concept of non-linear time into my daily life, and these conversations are so helpful!
    Thanks, Jeanette:-)

    • Jeannette says:

      Good point, Amanda! And yes, that commitment to the new chosen past is part of our success in manipulating it. I think that’s why it’s wise to not keep telling the story of the different one.
      Here’s to having more fun with non-linear time! 🙂

  • Quilly says:

    This happened about a week ago: Arriving for an appt, I was upset to find there were no parking places near the front (it was pouring rain). I began to grumble, but then I said to myself, “Don’t be silly — you live in Easy World.” So I swung around and there was suddenly an empty slot, right by the entrance. No cars had exited the parking lot; I’d simply slipped into a Universe with ample parking!

    • Steffy says:

      I have an excellent relationship with the Parking Gods. I ALWAYS get the perfect space, quickly and easily. Once I started believing that, it became real and for years I’ve gotten great spaces. And I live in a town where street parking is generally believed to be difficult.
      So this is inspiring me to replicate with the Love Gods, Prosperity Gods, etc.

    • Jeannette says:

      Nice one, Quilly! 🙂

  • Jen C. says:

    Oh, I love this topic and have had some success in my past letting go of a lot of negative parenting…I started remembering and imagining that God/Source was really my first parent anyhow, and that this parent is far more important than the ones I call Mom and Dad, and just kept imagining all the things I’d feel if I “knew” God was my parent…so that is a lot of really powerful emotions! It did change a lot for me, and I was able to release my own parents of their imperfections and really love them for who they were/are…forgiveness was way easier with this in mind.
    And, I just did this a few times, and the burdens were lifted. Much lighter energy afterwards. Anyhow, parenting is such a loaded topic, and this thread seems to have a lot of people that need to replay past events, so definitely jump in and try to feel an alternative past. It works wonders for me.

    • Jeannette says:

      What a wonderful thing to play with, Jen! Love your approach to it. Thanks for sharing that here, as I’m sure many would benefit from how they remember their parenting past, as well. 🙂

  • Susann says:

    I absolutely love book or movie story lines about time-travel. The various iterations of Star Trek had dozens over the years; there were times I’d get so confused about who was when I’d lose the plot entirely. Sometimes when I visualize Easy World I visualize it as all these parallel times running alongside one another like moving sidewalks, infinite in number stretching off to either side of me, each of them with a version of “me” on it, & I “practice” stepping from one to another. I tease myself with the possibility that I’ll really do it one of these times — and then think: maybe I already have! LOL! I have to play with this and can hardly wait to hear from anyone who’d successfully “changed” their own past in some way. I think this is one reason I find LOA so appealing — just the sheer infinite vastness of what *might* be possible takes my breath away!

  • Sandeep says:

    Hi Jeannette,
    To me past was an incident that had occurred; so whether it was good or bad; whether we liked it or not, we must accept that past.
    We can change future depending on our actions done in the present time. Future follows presents, and present follows past; so time is linear though in our imagination, we often correlate past, present, and future in a nonlinear manner.
    Focusing on the goodness of present for a better future is all we can do, I suppose.
    Regards and love

  • C. says:

    This is making me go wow because I woke up this morning thinking about my past choices and how if I could go back in time and change some things, I would.
    Oh boy, synchronicity has gotten me again!
    Nothing is impossible and everything is possible!
    Thanks Jeannette!

  • rex says:

    Great concept. This has been around for sometime. In Neuro Linguistic Programming there are many approaches and methods used for the past 40 or more years. Change History, Time Line Work and more. One can change or alter the meaning, significance and effect or affect of the past. There are methods for reducing and eliminating many things, over coming phobias and PTSD. I left a website in the website area where one can learn more.
    I love your work and enthusiasm Jeanette. Rock on!

    • Jeannette says:

      Thanks for chiming in here, Rex. Do you have any personal experience with changing the past? It sounds like you’re familiar with the concept, and we’d love to hear a real world example if you’ve got one you can share.
      On the call I made the distinction between changing one’s perception or “story” of a past event, versus changing the actual unfolding of events. Are we talking about the same thing?

  • Yvonne says:

    I just got out of my meditation and saw this (and exactly what I was looking for) but missed the call. Do you record those and publish? Really like your blog by the way.

    • Jeannette says:

      Yay for our subject synchronicity, Yvonne!
      Yes, we do record these calls – all GVU members have access to the archived library. (You can join on the three week $1 trial and download whatever you like.) 🙂

  • Jaime Chambers says:

    Wow, that is the most amazing concept. Oh, Bless and Thank You, dear heart, for bringing us hope, bringing us peace, bringing us a better way. I had a really rough child hood and have forgiven most of it but in the sub-con, it remains, and it does struggle to do damage, intentional or not, in my current state. This is just the most obvious yet profound activities that can really incorporate a CHANGE…
    Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU… A whole new me. Imagine that.
    Don’t mind if I do.
    ((THANK YOU))

    • Jeannette says:

      So glad you enjoyed the post, Jaime. I think you’ll enjoy the practice even more!
      You may want to check out Neville Goddard’s work on this subject, since his instruction is particularly compelling.
      Thanks for reading and happy manifesting, my friend! 🙂
