If you could travel back in time and change anything, anything at all, what would you change?
OK, I know we cannot travel back in time - at least, not yet. But humour me please. Imagine that you could. For Doctor Who fans, imagine you are Doctor who and you have your own Tardis. Close your eyes, think about how things are now, then think about what you could do to change them if you could go back in time.
Pick something that really means a lot to you. Something that can get you emotional. Something you can invest with your emotions. Something that would make a real, important difference. A difference in your life or a difference in the lives of those around you, or both.
Now let me add two rules:
1 You cannot go back to before you were born.
2 The only magical power you have is the power to go back in time.
As a result of those rules, You can only change things by behaving differently. Not by playing superman. Not by going back to pre-war Germany and assassinating Hitler - unless you are at least 90!
Perhaps those rules mean you need a different objective. If so, change your objective.
Visualize that objective. Now visualize what you are going to do in order to change what happened. Remember, this has to be a realistic action, not something that is virtually impossible. See yourself making that change, and then visualize how things are now as a result of that change. How does that make you feel? Hold on to that good feeling. Bask in it.
Now choose something else. Again, something that would make a real difference. Something it would be possible for you to change if only you could go back in time. Visualize the things you did to change it, and the difference that made. Feel that difference strongly. Let the positive vibes from it change your state.
Do this a third time with yet something else. Maybe something completely different. Perhaps if the first two were mainly changes to your present lifestyle, then make this one something that will make things better for those around you - your family and friends, or even strangers if you wish. And vice versa.
How do you feel, now you have imagined those changes? Happy and fulfilled, I hope. Don't feel frustrated, thinking that there is nothing you can do now to change what has already happened. Just feel good about the changes you wanted to make.
This exercise alone will change things for you if you let it. You have sent a message to the Universe, and the Universe has heard and will respond.
But that is not the only reason I asked you to do it. Nor is it even the main reason.
Think for a moment about what you did. You knew that by doing things differently you could make a change for the better in the future. As I said, at the moment we do not have the ability to go back in time and change things, but we do have the ability to change things now, to make things better in the future by changing what we do now.
Time travel IS possible right now, just not in the way you may have thought. Not only is it possible, but it is happening. The future is not here yet, but it is coming. And changes in what you do now will change that future. What kind of future do you want? For yourself and for those around you? Think about that carefully, then start doing now the things that will change your future for the better! You are in your own private time machine and can change everything. You are Doctor Who and have your own Tardis. Choose wisely how you change it all!
