What If The Future Could Affect The Past?
What If The Future Could Affect The Past? Well, guess what? It does.
In the well-regarded and peer-reviewed Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Daryl Bem, a well-respected academic psychologist, showed that present time behaviors can be influenced by future events. His experiments were then replicated, independently, ninety times, in thirty-three laboratories, in fourteen different countries around the world.
That's not all. Hundreds of experiments on precognition, (afore-knowing,) have been successfully conducted, and have then had their results published, since 1935. Yet, interestingly enough, psychic ability and precognition is still considered taboo in the western mindset.
So, despite the impeccable science and ample replications, there are continual and persistent attempts at discrediting these findings. I've heard it said that too often we vehemently deny new ideas until suddenly they are overwhelmingly accepted.
This brings me to the point I'd like to make. It's a good idea for us to think fondly of our future selves, who are looking back at us today. To me, this is almost like calling on our angels. When we imagine our future selves being who we'd like to be and doing what we'd like to do, not only do we pave the path for those outcomes, as any good day dreamer knows, but we also open the doors for magic to happen in our lives. Real magic.
From his humble beginnings as a bell hop, Conrad Hilton knew that one day he would own and operate many hotels. Undoubtedly as an older man, he must have looked back upon his younger years of drive and conviction, with pride and fondness. The youthful daydreamer met the experienced and seasoned mentor in the etheric realms of creation as past and future came together in harmonic resonance.
Thoughts like this give me great hope and joy. Think of how effective we could become, if we all began to realize this synergistic creativity as our birthright, our very human nature.
We look upon our children with hope and pride, why not look upon ourselves this way too. We can start by looking back with fondness at how we were ten years ago, or twenty or thirty and seeing how far we've come. We can commend our younger selves and pat us on the back, or hold out a helping hand and imagine giving ourselves a leg up into the next phase of our life's growth and journey.
Then, as well, why not imagine ourselves ten, twenty or thirty years in the future, looking back at us now. Seeing the struggles we are in and knowing how they help us to grow. This is a pretty fun exercise to try. Why don't we all just tune in and try it right now. Even if only for thirty seconds. It's fun and the science indicates it's fruitful.
So, I'll leave you with that. Let yourself take a little vacation in your mind, right now, and visit yourself some decades ahead, looking back at you now and cheering you on to a glorious future, one that we can all celebrate together, one that we can be proud of.
