In the January 2014 edition of The Magic Happens, I explored the idea that memeory is a fantasy and the further into the past it moves, the more fantasy it becomes.

At the time, I mentioned the idea of manipulating memories of the past inorder to change future outcomes. Iæve continued to consider the idea and now I want to quickly share my thoughts and perhaps get your input on the subject.
The thing that seems most important is to acknowledge that the alterations of memory that it takes to change the outcome of the future need only to be the tiniest of changes. The core of a memory must remember must remain as it is until it begins to liquify, so to speak.
A memory is not an event. It is only the perception of an event experienced from your unique perspective. Since we all hae a unique perspective of every event we are priveleged to partake in, it stands to reason that there are many perspectives of every event. Since there are many – they are not fixed – there is not a correct one and an incorrect one. Perspectives are made up of feelings, ideas and decisions or in other words, the filters we have created out of our many perspectives of our many experiences. Any one of these things can be changed a tiny bit to make a huge change in the future.
For example: Let’s imagine for a moment that I did something when I was 10 that has left me feeling deeply guilty. If I can change my perspective of whatever it was that I did, just 1 or 2 degrees now, I will be on a completely different course in just a couple of years.
When a boat is sailing the ocean, an accidental 2 degree course correction will have that boat 100 miles away from it’s intended destination in just 12 hours.
The longer you stay on the new tiny course adjustment, the further you will travel from where you were supposed to end up. Get it? Small adjustments – big change. Want more money, change how you think about money just a little bit, then wait for the time to pass that needs to pass to get somewhere new. Want more love? Change how you perceive love and wait. Want a slimmer body, change just a little and wait it out…
So go on now, experiment. Please come back and share your findings with us so we can all grow a little together.
