According to many teachers, we change the past all the time.

What I am wondering is, has anyone tried to change what happened by changing their memory of an experience and been successful with it?

If so, how detailed did you have to get with the new memory? Does it matter if you don't imagine specifics?

I have attempted to change a memory that is many years old. I cannot remember details, just the general gist of what happened. In this, I have been imagining the new memory the same way, details omitted, but with what actually happened being different. I can believe that the new memory actually happened instead, so it's not an issue of the new event being believable, I'm just beginning to doubt over whether or not it's being done correctly. Very frustrating!

In Seth's exercise for changing the past, he says you must imagine the new memory very vividly several times. However, I've read about an experience someone had where they only imagined a new memory once for 5 minutes and saw profound changes. Now I can't find that info anymore! Any feedback or help you can give is appreciated. :)

From a psychology paradigm, yes, you certainly can do what you have been describing of doing. By changing the memories you allow yourself to think and your interpretation of those memories, you alter your self narrative.

I am not saying this lightly- google search 'narratology' and you can find explicit ways of changing your interpretation of memories/events that can change your self perception.

No need for spiritual woo woo- this stuff is real and provable.

That's a good question. I have used Faster EFT for 3 years along with Z Point Process and other modalities. Faster EFT is a much faster version of EFT which is a technique that neutralize negative emotions within minutes. With Faster EFT you eliminate the emotions surrounding a past memory and then you reimprint the memory and the memory changes. It's much easier to change a memory after you neutralize all of the negative emotions surrounding the memory. When you change a past memory, you also change a limiting belief that that memory used to support. That is the short version; In faster eft there is a technique called the Super Power Tap which can neutralize piles and piles of negative emotions in seconds. There is a similar technique in the Z Point Process called Erase The Tape. I hope this helps. If you have any questions, let me know.

I recently used Reiki to heal a past traumatic event concerning one of my children. He sent me a victim impact letter spelling out an abusive situation involving him as the victim with a neighborhood bully. When I read the letter I felt devastated but I quickly remembered my Reiki teacher telling us we could heal the past. So I sent healing intention to the past event only picturing my son smiling and happy. I did that for several nights until I felt a release to stop. This was several weeks ago and today he seems less emotional, calmer, happier and more positive about the future. His whole demeanor has changed. I won't allow the graphic description of the event to even enter my mind. Any time that thought rises up, I see my son smiling innocent and happy. I feel in my spirit that I have changed the past event and the evidence in the present seems to support it.

the only profit you could get is correcting your error from the past. things that you did not see or understand. this will change your future. you see the problem is not outside of you only. everything you see outside of you will pass away. the living one inside the immortal part of you that is passing by in this world is not subject to the same rule. like energy is not matter. many do not know the living one inside of them they have darkness on and in the water and it hide and veil the reflection of the living one when he look at him self in the water. since their is this division conflict and darkness in between he is divided in himself.

Truly, truly, I say to you, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
