I have read posts on here about stepping into an alternate reality, like this one. So what if we went to another reality in which someone we know and love, like a child, did not exist because we never met their father to have that child? Or what if a friend was never born because her parents never met?

Here is another postlink text talking abou this.

fairy princes, there may be another story to that human condition, it will be your experience at your next reincarnation, what your actions and thoughts bring into it. your 'chararcter' will define you. for it may be you who makes the choice of your next parents, as has brought you a birth into this realm, now.

I don't mean reincarnations in a different time in a different body. I mean parallel realities right now.

I think the important thing to remember Fairy Princess is that we always have a choice.If that child or friend plays such an important part in our life, I don't think we'd choose to step into a reality where they don't exist.

The post that you reference as an example is not quite the same thing.

When breaking an addiction, it can be helpful to see yourself as a non-addicted person. Addiction is a pattern of behavior, and one way to break that pattern is to act, not only as if you were not addicted, but as if you were never addicted. That's a change in the state of one's mind, not a leap to another universe.

It is intriguing to speculate about things like alternate universes. But surely if you have the power to jump into a universe that doesn't have your children, then you must also surely have the power to jump back into the universe where your children exist.

Part of the reason we live together on this planet is because it provides a stable platform where there are physical laws that (in most cases) cannot be broken. These laws give our reality the stability and assurance that enables us to accomplish things, and to interact with each other using mutually agreed-upon principles and ideas.

As my programmer friends might say, "That's not a bug, it's a feature!" Think about how difficult the simplest things would be, if your cereal bowl could just float off the table any time it wanted to. Or the table itself could suddenly disappear without warning.

I agree with Michaela, changing your timeline would have to be a choice of yours. If you CHOSE to go to another Timeline where a loved one did not exist could be exciting. Like anything else in time and space, YOU choose the perspective you want.

Maybe going to another timeline without a loved one could be great! As long as you are not attached to them or the idea of them, then maybe you can do some alternate exploring of yourself in a time and place where you are not influenced by these other entities. Remember this choice would solely be yours to make.

I don't even know how to choose alternate realities or timelines.

Timelines are easier than realities (to me) Look at it like this...A friend asks you to go to a concert, you then see yourself going and all that, and you also see yourself not going. At that point both timelines are created. The you that goes and the you that does not is put into action...then you choose one. Every moment we are given opportunities to pick a timeline. The you that did not go in the 3d universe DID GO in the other reality.
