Do you struggle with an inability to change your experiences? Do you wish there was some way to make life just that little bit easier, where the same rotten stuff didn’t keep showing up?
If so, you’re not alone. Far too many of us live our life with the same type of experiences and conditions appearing far too regularly, breaking our hearts, crushing our dreams or wounding our spirit.
No more. Today I’m going to share with you the one spiritual tool that you can use to change your experiences. A tool that will support you to create a transformed future. Can you say ‘yes’ to that?
I have to tell you, I did, and it’s worked like a charm. Not all of the time, because there’s still a thing called operator error, and I can make errors along with the best of them!
Begin at the end
For some, your past has been a tough teacher, and will continue to be so if you can’t or won’t find ways to release it. Unless you can acknowledge it is done and forgive yourself or others the energy of the past remains engraved on your hearts.
And sadly it continues on into your future whilst the clock is ticking and days, weeks, years are passing you by. With brilliant possibilities decreasing and regrets continuing to mount.
All of which is such a shame when you truly can embody and manifest a most incredible life, if you would but stop letting past energies remain in charge of your future.
Change your experiences by the use of revision
Revision is a concept I learned many years ago…but one that I bet you’ve never heard of because hardly anyone knows of it or talks about it.
But what if I told you that you could awaken this mighty power of revision within you – a mighty power that you don’t need to seek because you already have it. A power that meant diminished stress, or worry, or struggle.
Buddhist monks and revision
I want to revisit something I’ve written about before.
Years ago I read that Buddhist monks would run through their entire day, just before going to sleep. I think it was something about putting the day to rest so as not to take it into their sleep…which makes sense when we know that it’s in sleep that we are programming our subconscious to do it’s manifesting work for us.
And then I learned about revision, which takes that idea to a brand new level. A way to live life that can change your experiences. I kid you not.
What does this mean for you?
Revision means, at the end of a day you never accept as final the facts of the day, no matter how factual they are. No matter how set in stone they seem to be. It doesn’t mean you deny facts happened. It doesn’t mean you’re literally changing past experiences, it means you’re altering the energy of them by seeing them differently.
In its simplest form, revision is the use of your imagination to see you, your circumstances or someone else and their circumstances, not as they currently are; but as you and they would wish them to be.
And the reason we would do this is because our energetic moments from the past, if not revised won’t stay in the past, they move forward into our future and we get to confront those experiences over and over again, even if we’d rather leave them behind.
Using the power of revision you repeal or reverse your past energies and by so doing you bring about corresponding changes in your outer world for your future.
Now that’s good news right?
Open hearts and minds
Okay I get that this is a challenging concept to accept and I for one was pretty skeptical at first hearing, but have a mind and heart open enough to hear it and you can do what I did and test it in your world.
Especially if you want some changes in your life, and if there are things in your past that you don’t want heading into your future. Remember the biggest obstacles in life are the limitations your mind creates.
And what do you have to lose by trying?
If the word revision is too strange right now, substitute the word edit. You are editing your past energetic frequencies and rewriting them with something that will make you feel happier and draw a greater future towards you.
The nitty gritty of revision
1. Start with revising or editing your day and try it for a week or so until you get comfortable with the idea. Only then should you get to your more distant past. Not for any weird reason, it’s just that once you get into the habit of reviewing your days it will make reviewing the past easier.
So getting down to the nitty gritty…review the day; don’t judge it, simply review it.
Look over the entire day, all the experiences, all the events, all the conversations, all the meetings, see it clearly in your mind’s eye, and mentally rewrite those elements that weren’t the way you wanted them to be until you feel good about them.
And if there’s nothing you would change…that’s wonderful…but you can do something else here, you can make the experiences doubly good.
Make your day conform to the ideal day you wish you’d experienced.
Take scene after scene and rewrite it in your mind, revise it, and having revised your day, then, in imagination, re-live that day, the revised day, and do it over and over in your imagination until this seeming imagined state begins to take on the feeling of reality.
Do it until it seems that it’s real, that you actually did experience it and I have found from experience that these revised days, if really lived in your imagination, will change your tomorrows.
For instance. Suppose today’s mail brought you disappointing news. You would take the letter and using your imagination you would read what you wanted the letter to say and how you wanted to feel. And you’d repeat it until you had a sense of its reality.
Or if you had a disagreement with a friend. Mentally replay the entire experience in your imagination having it feel pleasant and positive, and keep doing this until you feel that sense of reality. And yes the original experience did happen, but by seeing it differently you are working with universal energy and believe me, it changes the future of things.
2. Hold your attention upon the idea of the wish fulfilled until it fills the mind and crowds all other ideas out of the consciousness. This is your form of prayer. It isn’t a force of will it’s more a surrender. It means abandoning oneself to the feeling of the wish fulfilled. To the way you’d have liked your day to be.
3. Understanding revision as an act of forgiveness in its true sense, because you are identifying with the ideal you would wish to experience, is one way to understand revision as the powerful tool that it is.
And the great news is that we can do this not only for ourself but for others.
You might be startled to find that by a simple act of revision…you can change a life. Yours or another’s.
For instance your friend has lost their job. You imagine them happily doing what they would love to do, having the financial situation they would love to have. That’s revision on behalf of another, and I’ve done this, more than once for others. And I find it works pretty flipping well.
Or a relationship has gone sour…it’s broken, as is someone’s heart.
Use your imagination for happiness and joy for them…you don’t have to know how or why it happened.
Simply mentally persuade yourself how joyful they are. And no, I don’t mean you see them back together. That’s messing in the middle. Just envision happy, smiling faces and allow it to unfold in the best possible way for everyone.
And I’ve done this too for a family member. Totally ignoring their past history and what my senses would tell me was possible, and that worked out fantastically well for everyone concerned.
We don’t need consent or permission or even someone’s knowledge – all we’re doing is mentally lifting someone out of the state of unhappiness or misery that they currently live in. And the energy radiates into our world as well, so double win here.
This works because ultimately, spiritually speaking, we are all one.
4. So forgive your day, remove the hold that past wrong emotional reactions have upon you by reviewing the experiences and mentally changing them. Rewrite them in your mind, saying what you wish you’d said and doing what you wished you’d done.
5. Look toward tomorrow from the revised place you’ve just created.
6. Repeat every night.
I know revision isn’t the most normal concept in the world. And perhaps isn’t the easiest to grasp. And there are definitely naysayers who will dispute the possibilities of this but as Anthon St Maarten put it so well:
“…The vision of your true destiny does not reside within the blinkered outlook of the naysayers and the doom prophets…Friends and family who suffer the lack of abundance, joy, love, fulfillment and prosperity in their own lives really have no business imposing their self-limiting beliefs on your reality experience.”
It might make more sense if you could but see that as you revise your day you are diluting the energetic frequencies connected to past experiences.. Emotions, are vibrations of feelings and they are lingering chemical records of the past. If you continue with the same emotions they will continue to drive your thoughts which in turn influence the actions you take and the results you experience.
I do hope you’ll give this a try and perhaps you too will discover that you no longer find that past circumstances have the power to make your future.
Let us all stand together and say we are no longer willing to invest any circumstances with a power that in and of themselves they don’t have.
May your week ahead be filled with blessings as you change your experiences. And regardless of those who will tell you it can’t be done. Take charge of your future. Be different. Be relentless and don’t ever look backwards.
Encourage one another.
