If I start rewriting some events in my past that I shared with someone with my thoughts and if this person is not as deliberate in how she interpreted those events, will he/she naturally start picking up on my chosen version of these same events?
In other words, are the thoughts that naturally occur (without deliberately choosing them) in relation to an event I shared with other people connected to those people's thoughts about said events? And are those thoughts that do 'take hold' usually the product of the minds of whoever is more deliberate about them, or keeps thinking about them with more intensity and intention?
I'm specifically thinking about a video from the teacher Bentinho Massaro in which he talks about choosing your past, choosing YOUR version of events and as that takes root, you have changed into a parallel reality and reality has no choice but to reflect this new timeline you generated based on the 'altered' past. I am just confused about how that would imapact other people's interpretation of the events. Also, he says that as you change into this parallel reality, there will be parallel versions of people that reflect this new configuration but it is hard at this point to wrap my head around how this all cliks. If interpretation is subjective, then there wouldn't be the need for 'parallel versions' of others to reflect my new perspective since each person creates their own reality anyway. Sorry if this sounded confusing but I tried to express it the best I can :)
In a virtual retreat I purchased from Bentinho Massaro, a woman asks him if we can "change the memory of others", which is similar to what you're asking here. He told her that since other people reflect you, if you forget about the event, they will too. They'll stop referencing it. And if you change enough to change your past, others will not associate you with the old past anymore. So, I think that if you rewrite a past event and really believe that is the way it happened, other people who shared it with you will remember it that way, as well. But, they will still interpret - or will still have interpreted - it in the way they want to.
Also, here is a transcript from someone's conversation with Bashar:
Transcript: 13th step creates new memories
X: "I have a couple of different questions."
B: "Oh, alright, we would assume that they would be different, otherwise they would be the same questions."
X: "I have a couple of the same questions actually. You said that when any(thing) changes the total changes, when you change the present you change the past. How can you go then remember the different past in such a way that other people remember it with you?
B: "Many times you'll find that when you change yourself sufficiently... do you not sometimes... or have you not heard of the experience of someone coming up to you and go: "I don
Hope this helps.

Yes, they are absolutely connected because you are the creator of other people (including their thoughts) in your specific parallel reality.
Even if other people's own perspectives appear to be "their own" perspectives, they actually are really just your perspective. For example, think about an event in which you think a particular person thinks about you in a particular way.
Really come up with a specific situation with a specific person...
Who is thinking this thought about HOW they are thinking it right now? Is it really them right now or is it you thinking it and interpreting it through your lens right now in front of a device that is connected to the internet?
Could it be possible that it is your interpretation only right now?
Here is an insight that almost shocked me when I really realized it.
What you think what other people think of you... is actually really what you are thinking about yourself right now.
Because if you weren't thinking it yourself first, you wouldn't shift into that particular parallel reality in which you were now able to think that thought and have a positive or negative reaction to it.
As Bashar says, we all shift into new parallel realities all the time. And since there are infinite parallel realities you could choose from, you could shift into any parallel reality with a different past. It's your choice.
But he also says that often on that level, you wouldn't even notice it. You would just know that you had a different past and people would reflect that back to you perfectly. There would be no "aha moment" because you wouldn't remember a different past than that. He says we do it all the time. Sometimes we do it individually and sometimes we do it collectively.
For example, Bashar gives this example that after the year of 1996 of our time we shifted to a parallel reality in which John F. Kennedy died in the year of 1963... as we know it to be today. Before 1996 we collectively lived in a reality in which John F. Kennedy died in the year of 1984.
So we are shifting all the time anyway. And why not shift into a parallel reality that you would like to experience right now? :)
Answer: Sort of. The LOA isn't about thoughts; it's about how those thoughts make you feel. You attracted that particular group of people to you, so yes, in that sense you all are connected because everyone's feelings matched that event.
Don't worry about the effect on other people because you cannot think and feel exactly as they do; therefore, you cannot fully understand or control what their perception is. Others reflect back to you your feelings. If you are generally in a good mood, you'll notice that those around you are equally as content, and vice versa.
So, let's say that you were very timid as a child. At some point, either as a teen or adult, you decided that you wanted to be more extroverted and did this "rewrite the past" exercise. If, after doing this exercise and mastering the vibration of outgoing-ness, you ran into a childhood friend, he or she might recount a time where you were extroverted in a school play or something. You may not have remembered that event that way or even at all, because you did not have access to it from the perspective of timidness. Does that make sense? I hope I've answered your question.
