Just watch the movie: Back to the Future, and you see the character played by Michael J. Fox physically did stuff and that changed the future that he traveled back to. It changed the people, their income level, their behavior, their social status.
But what if our limited thinking is not the only way to look at this phenomenon?
Let me tell you something that I had first hand experience with.
Some 20 years ago, in a Landmark Seminar, the Leadership Seminar, (for those of you that care,) we needed to do a group project to practice leadership.
My group decided to create a self help group, somewhat based on the 12-step principles of non-coaching.
The name of the group was "Playground: It is never too late to have a happy childhood."
We had 12 topics, ranging from money to sex, and we cycled through them, one topic per week.
All we did is retold our life from the particular perspective of the week, but made sure we separated fact from fiction: i.e. what happened and what we said it meant.
The group ran for two years in living rooms of the participants, and we all experienced major results that were totally unpredictable. Weight loss of a hundred pounds, regaining one's potency as a man, creating loving, mutually supportive relationships, a loser of a realtor suddenly making a lot of cash, and for me, creating a business that was both profitable and enjoyable.
What happened in those Monday night sessions is time travel. We managed to go back and change the past. NOT what actually happened, but its significance, its meaning, its "bearing" on the future.
I must have given up being a martyr on the cross, because finally I was able to have it all without any suffering.
I wish I could form a group like this today to help me reevaluate some of my past, so that I can increase my sense of my own value and increase my ability to accept abundance in my life.
Anyone interested in teaming up with me? We could do it on the phone!
