For anyone in the mood to choose an alternate unfolding of your past, here are a couple helpful hints.
This isn’t something I play with a lot, but each time I have, the results have been impressive. Which just goes to show our manifesting playground is probably bigger than we truly realize.
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!
Lynne McTaggart seems to think so.
And I have to say, based on personal experience, I do too.
(I played with the ability to alter what’s already done after reading The Intention Experiment, and had amazing results on a highly-charged prior event.)
Here’s an excerpt from a blog post by McTaggart well worth reading (I added the bold emphasis):
Recently researchers at Washington University in St Louis, Missouri, studied patients using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). In this study, people were asked to both recall and imagine common events, such as a birthday party or the experience of getting lost. To the surprise of the researchers, identical areas of the brain were activated whether the participants were recalling or imagining.
As was noted in a recent issue of New Scientist: Not only is our personal past and future tightly ‘linked’ in the brain, but both are handled by a ‘universal module for mental time travel’. Even more fascinating, when the brain is not focused on anything in particular, researchers have discovered that the very same mental time-travel ‘network’ is still operating.
These findings pose many interesting questions regarding time and our relationship with it.
If the brain is simply an antenna and transducer of quantum information and it doesn’t distinguish between past and future, imagination and recall may well be interchangeable. Imagination could be used to ‘fix’ those past events that are still unsettling you.
Experiment with some of the following ‘retro-intentions’ with your partner or loved one. But first, make sure to ‘power up’ before you begin these exercises.
* If you’ve had a large bust up or disagreement of some sort that was never resolved, try having the two of you cast your minds back to the point where the event started. Carry out an intention for it to resolve itself at that time. See if it now feels resolved for you both.
* If you are still not getting along with someone, have both of you cast your minds back to the point where you first had the disagreement, and send your intention to change it there. Remember to be very specific.
* If you and your children argue frequently, try casting your mind back to a specific time when you were getting along. Imagine the same event with them at the age they are now. Try this frequently and see if it stimulates you to get along with them better in the present.
* If you cannot get along with someone at your place of work, imagine future events in which you are both working together harmoniously. See if that helps to resolve past issues.
* If you and a parent have unresolved conflicts from your childhood, go back to a really difficult moment. Imagine the same event in the future, with you and the parent as you are now, but ending up harmoniously. See if this alters your negative memories.
Has anyone here worked with this concept? What are your thoughts about doing so?
Since it’s more than just theory, I think this is an important concept for deliberate creators to consider!
PS – if anyone here is familiar enough with the “power up” process to share it, please do. Thank you!
