Note: This is one of those posts that’s probably more for me than for you. Consider it “Advanced LOA”. Some of you will adore it, while many others will find it hard to read. You’ll notice that I answered Awesome Dudette’s question and then took the whole thing to a WHOLE OTHER LEVEL. Why? Because I was inspired to. Because this is the stuff that goes through my mind. Because I find it so damn interesting and I think some of you will, too. If you don’t, don’t worry about it. It’s not meant for everyone. We’ll resume our regularly scheduled programming on Monday. Promise. 🙂
Awesome Dudette’s Burning Question: “Melody what is your take on the concept of parallel lives? I heard that the soul wants every experience possible, which is the reason for parallel lives of an incarnation. I have always wondered that after I die, I would love to reincarnate into this same life again and see what it’s like had I made some different choices. What do you think?”
Dear Awesome Dudette,
You’re absolutely right. Our Soul, or Who We Really Are wants to experience every possibility, every nuance, every facet of every possible decision that it could ever make. That’s essentially what we’re here for – to experience ourselves from every angle.
What’s a little bit screwy (no offense) about your question is the assumption that all of this has to happen linearly, i.e. one life after another.
The Multiverse theory
Even though you, as you currently know yourself, are only aware of this one life right now, that doesn’t mean that that’s all there is. As quantum physicists are figuring out (ok, right now it’s just a theory, but they’re on the right track), there’s more than one Universe. There are many, many (alright, it’s an infinite number) parallel Universes out there. In fact, every time you make even the tiniest decision, you create two new Universes – one in which you made decision A, and one in which you made decision B. In that moment, a new version of you is also created, one that made the decision you didn’t, and the outcome of which you’re not aware of. The Big YOU, your soul, if you will, is aware of both versions. But, in order for you to fully experience your reality, you can only be aware of your own.
Given the number of decisions you’ve made, both conscious and unconscious, it stands to reason that there are quite a few versions of you bopping about in the Multiverse. And you don’t have to go back and relive any one version after you “die” (put in sarcastic quotes, because there is no real death). You are living all these lives simultaneously. Once you transition, you have full access to these lives. In other words, you get a much larger perspective.
Your parallel lives
But it doesn’t stop there. You’re not just experiencing every possible iteration of your current life. You can be (and are) living completely different lives, in different countries, cultures and yes, timelines. So, there could be a version of you in ancient Egypt, or the middle ages, or 100 years ago, with all the possible iterations of THAT life. And even though to you, in your limited (by design) perspective, think that those lives happened ages ago, they didn’t. It’s all happening NOW, at the same time. So, when you tap into a “past” life, you’re really just tapping into another one of your avatars, another one of your Soul’s versions.
You see, your soul has different levels of awareness. Consider you, Awesome Dudette, to be at Level 0. You have a very limited and therefore specific focus. You can only see one perspective at a time, but can therefore experience and explore it fully. When you go up a level (what most people consider their soul, or who they become when they die), you have your non-physical self, Level 1. You do not become this person when you transition, you already are her. She doesn’t cease to exist when you’re “born”, any less than the player of a video game ceases to exist when they start a new game and create a new character. You exist simultaneously.
Your Level 1 self has the ability to perceive multiple perspectives at one time, but will focus on them in less detail than a Level 0 character. Whereas you (Level 0) might freak out about being late for work, your Level 1 persona knows that ultimately, it doesn’t matter, because you’re going to be quitting your job and moving towards your passion soon anyways. The stress you feel is just another indicator that you’re not doing what you want to be doing, and is actually serving you. Your Level 1 self therefore doesn’t worry about the lateness and doesn’t join you in your stress. In other words, your Level 1 self is much more Zen and chilled out than you are.
So, let’s say that your Level 1 self can see and experience all the iterations of your current life, all the possible decisions you’ve made and how they played out.
But, your Level 1 self is simply just another avatar. Go up a rung and you’ll find Level 2. Your Level 2 self has the ability to perceive and experience not just all your Level 0 lives, but also all of your Level 1 lives. This is where I may begin to lose a few of you, so let me offer…
…One of my super-duper analogies:
Let’s say that your current Level 0 life is Barbara, who lives in New York City, in 2013. Barbara is 40, has 2 kids, a wonderful husband and a blah job as an attorney. Barbara’s Level 1 self would be able to see not only this iteration of Barbara, but every iteration – the one that didn’t go to law school, the one that ran off with some dreamy musician when she was 18, the one that chose to go to dance classes and pursue her passion, the one whose parents are still alive, the one never had kids, the one who didn’t battle anorexia in her teens, the one who had the courage to kiss the high school quarterback that time under the bleachers in High School, etc. Every version of Barbara starts in the same place – 40 years ago, in New York, born to the same parents, in the same house. But from that point on, each decision that was made created a new version of Barbara, a new Universe in which that decision played out. Barbara’s Level 1 self can see all of these versions.
But then, there’s more than one Level 1 version of Barbara. Others might include a woman in the 1800’s, who worked on a farm. Again, there will be different versions of this woman, all starting at the same point, and then diverging based on all the different decisions made.
Barbara’s Level 2 self will be aware of all of these versions or lives. From HER perspective, all of these iterations are happening at the same time, and she has the capacity and ability to absorb, understand and enjoy all that information. She will stress even less about the details than her Level 1 selves, and will have an even larger perspective of the universe and how it works.
Follow me down the rabbit hole…
Do you think it stops there? Nope, it keeps going up and up and up, until eventually, you get to the highest level, where ALL is known, seen, experienced and understood. This is what most people will want to call God. But really, it’s just Barbara. Or Bob. Or YOU. Or ME. It’s all of us. You see, it’s like we’re all connected to this giant family tree, all related to each other in real time, all feeding into the same consciousness. And it’s all happening at the same time.
But, if we didn’t split off our awareness and delve into each Level 0 experience fully, reveling in the details and being much less aware of our simultaneous lives, we wouldn’t have nearly as much fun. It comes down to the degree to which you can be engaged.
Let’s say you’re watching a football (soccer) game. You can watch the whole field, seeing the entire game unfold. You’ll see every goal, and every big play. But, you’ll miss a lot of the details. You might become aware of a penalty or injury only after it happened. You’ll have to wait for the replay to see the details. You won’t be aware of what every single player is doing in every single moment.
Now, let’s say that you decide to focus on just one player for the entire game. You see him running, faking left and going right, blocking, hawking a loogie (spitting) on the field, and feigning an injury or two. When the ref calls a foul, you know that your player was at fault. You watched him kick the other player. You don’t miss a single detail of what this one player does. But you do miss what every other player is doing, including any goals not scored by “your” player, unless he was directly involved or very close to the action. You miss all the other fouls, all the other maneuvers and when someone asks you about the game the next day, you’ll have a lot of details about this one player, but may not even know the score of the game. You were focused very narrowly, and therefore couldn’t perceive the big picture at the same time.
Your Level 0 experience is like watching that one player run around the field. Your Level 1 self watches and experiences the whole game. Your Level 2 self is flipping through channels and is aware of all the scores of all the games, and so on. A Level 1 avatar isn’t aware of as many details as the Level 0 one, but CAN delve into them at will. So, if you want to know how a particular player got injured, you just watch the replay. You temporarily dip into a more limited perspective (one or two players), and then dip out again.
Sidebar: How does awareness of past lives figure into all of this?
Well, considering that there are not “past” lives, only many, many concurrent lives, your awareness of another life is really just another way for the Universe to bring you information. It’s a manifestation, like any other. Whether you receive a memory from your current iteration, or from one that happened 100 years ago, it still has to match whatever is going on in your vibration NOW.
So, if you’ve “discovered” that you were murdered in a past life, ask yourself why you would remember that NOW. What’s going on in your current vibration that would make you a match to this feeling? What’s being mirrored back to you? The experience of the past life cannot affect your current life (this is a very limiting belief; that you’re condemned to continue the struggle of your past lives, or that some trauma from your past lives could cause you to have fears in your current one), but it can certainly mirror back what’s going on in your energy today. If you’re feeling unsafe, for example, you may have the horrific memory of being stabbed to death in a former life. This manifestation would then alert you to the fact that your current fears are not serving you, without you necessarily needing to manifest a stabbing right now.
Back to the main point: How can you use this information today?
Alright, alright, so up until this point, we’ve been talking mostly philosophy. This Multiverse and Multiple You theory is all fine and good, but how can we use it practically in order to enhance our lives?
#1 – Access and make use of the higher perspective of the next level up
If you’re at Level 0, Level 1 isn’t like some bureaucrat that you don’t have access to. You don’t have to live cut off from that knowledge and wisdom. You can access it any time you like. When you access your “guides” or channel, you’re really just talking to a bunch of Level 1 folks – your higher self, and anyone else interested in what’s going on, including other people’s Level 1’s. If you go high enough, you can even talk to some Level 2’s (just for the record, it’s not really this clearly demarcated. I’m attempting to give structure to something that’s actually quite fluid, wrapping my little Level 0 consciousness around something our brains aren’t designed to completely comprehend, and this is the closest I can come at this time).
The wisdom and knowledge and yes, information that’s being fed to the Level 1 and up avatars is available for us to download anytime we like. All we have to do is give ourselves permission, by truly believing that we can. We give ourselves such permission when we study something (“I have studied it, therefore I know it and can recall it”), but that’s not actually necessary. We’ve simply been taught to believe that it is. There have been many examples of people accessing information they had no way of knowing throughout history. THIS is how they gained that knowledge.
#2 – Change your NOW by shifting to a new version of yourself. Completely.
Ok, this one’s going to be a little more complicated (I know… but I did warn you), and it’s really the whole point of this post.
If you know that:
- you, as you know yourself, are not the only version of you that exists
- new realities with new iterations of you are being created constantly
- you can shift into a different reality anytime you like by changing your point of focus and therefore your vibration
you can begin to understand that when you shift realities, you are actually shifting into a different version of yourself. You are actually becoming a different person. You do not just have the power to shift into a reality that’s brand new to the Universe (by making Decision A or Decision B), but into ANY reality and version of yourself that you like (and which you can believe).
However, in order to do so, and in order to make any kind of significant shift, you have to be willing to completely let go of the old identity. You have to be willing to tell completely different stories. You have to be willing to think and feel and react as that new version of yourself. And you have to be willing to let go of that old version’s past, because the new person you’re becoming didn’t have that past. That woman without commitment issues didn’t have the experiences that caused her to be afraid of love. She didn’t overcome her pain, she never had it.
When you change who you ARE now, you actually, literally change who you WERE.
This, I’ve come to understand, is SUCH a huge key to making significant shifts in your current reality. If you’re willing to let go of your past completely, if you can stop needing to punish anyone, if you can stop needing to be the victim, to be validated, to be approved of, or to be healed, then you can actually let go of who those stories and needs caused you to become. And if you can completely let go of all the limiting definitions of self that you’re currently carrying around, you can actually leapfrog into not just a version of you that’s only slightly different from the one you came from, but someone significantly different. This is how you accelerate change exponentially. This is how you make quantum leaps (which I don’t generally recommend, but if you’ve read this far and understand this post, then you’re probably the kind of person that won’t let me stop you anyway…). I, for one, find that freaking awesome. But then, that’s just the version of Melody that I choose to be.
The theory of parallel universes implies the possible future theory. For every tiny decision – as you correctly said – we create a parallel universe, therefore in our timeline we create a possible future for ourselves. This means that this future may happen or may not and this is included into the multi-universe theory. So for every move we make and according to our decisions, our future can shift and if we can see forward, we have the power to change that future because of that awareness. It is true that it is not that easy to grasp such concepts but I am glad that you presented them in such a way that can be understood by most people.
It is such a pleasure connecting with you today! Wishing you all the best!
I remember reading this once I first stumbled upon Melody’s blog, but only on the second read it occured to me that would this maybe explain the freaky awareness shifts I’ve been experiencing ever since I started with LOA? I get deja vus that can last from fifteen minutes to half an hour (my conscious mind is going OMGWTF during that whole time) sometimes I see different surroundings. I might be in a room but then the room disappears and changes into a different one for a split second. Or I go on for weeks feeling like I’m in two places at the same time. Like when I was living in another country, and I had solid plans to move back to my home country, suddenly the sensations and surroundings felt so close somehow that I wasn’t really sure where I was. My body was in place A but my mind was in place B. These things seem to happen periodically, mostly when I’m able to get to a very high vibration and have set out a clear intention. When I come down from there, my reality is like the Matrix glitching. Could this be because I somehow connect to parallel lives for a period of time? Could this be somehow used to further benefit from the momentum, or is it just what it is; an indication that energy is moving in the right direction?
Can’t answer your questions but can tell you I’ve had a similar (but nowhere near as intense or as physical) sensation, where I felt like I was still living and working in Los Angeles even years after I left. Even then I had the thought that maybe I was somehow connected to the version of me that chose to stay. I had flashes, not physical ones, more like a feeling or a knowing that I was still there in current time. Not a memory. Another me. I don’t know…but very cool to hear that someone else had similar experiences. I’ve never told anyone this before!
Thank you so much for sharing your story, Jeannie! It’s comforting to know that others have had similar experiences. At first I questioned the flashes and sensations because nothing was happening on the outside, but it was a year later when I moved back to my home country. So basically they were signs that the energy was building, I guess. It’s interesting that you would be so connected to the energy to the you in Los Angeles, I always thought that it’s the intention that creates the connection. Were you entertaining the thought of moving back to Los Angeles or did the sensations just come randomly, without a clear cause?
I love how you can take complex subjects and break them down into manageable chucks. Easy to understand AND fun too! Sharing! 🙂
Making that quantum leap into a different version of me — is it my consciousness or my body (both?) that flips into a different reality?
Would the change show up as something happening in what I perceive to be this reality, incrementally, just my life changing as I make choices based on a new vibration and then one day I realize hey my life is totally different than it was last year…..I brought in abundance and love and adventure and so on….
Or, is it that my awareness would shift. To a version of me with a totally different past, doesn’t that mean it’s a different body? Different past, different memories? I’d guess 99.99999999% of people wouldn’t be able to handle this (including me).
I watch too much sci fi.
My opinion, if you don’t mind me inserting it here.
Your body is just a projection of consciousness. There is no difference between “body” and consciousness.
So when you jump universes, consciousness shifts. You jump to a different version of reality, with all things basically the same except for one or two things related to your goal, for example.
It’s not as big or scary as it sounds. You jump universes countless times every day. Every time you make a decision, you’ve entered a universe where you made the decision you did. There is another universe where you made that decision differently. There’s a universe where I didn’t leave this comment, and one where I left this comment. And probably a whole bunch of others where I wrote it differently than I did. it really boggles the mind when you think about it long enough.
Hi Brandon, I don’t mind at all, in fact welcome the discussion!
I’m all good with the idea of all the different versions of me out there in other dimensions or universes or whatever, with this choice and that choice creating different realities and another me in each one.
I’m just trying to reconcile this idea – Melody quote: “in order to make any kind of significant shift, … you have to be willing to let go of that old version’s past, because the new person you’re becoming didn’t have that past. That woman without commitment issues didn’t have the experiences that caused her to be afraid of love. She didn’t overcome her pain, she never had it.”
That’s where my question comes in — we would have to let go so much of our current identity that in order to step into the version of ourselves that has the life we want (wealthy, in love, traveling and having adventures, all things I’m not doing now for various reasons), we would even have completely different memories/life experiences?
How would that work? Wouldn’t I be a different me, not this one who jumped into a different universe? Or my consciousness would meld with that one so that the universe I’m in now would cease to exist? Or this old version of me would still be here living this same small lonely life but I’d become aware of the other one, the one I want, since I would then identify with that one since I matched my vibration to it. They are all me, but “I” am only currently aware of and embodying this one. I’d rather be aware of and embodying that one (wealthy, in love, traveling and having adventures…..)! But having a completely different backstory….how would I still be “me”? Then again would I really want to be….aaaaaarrrrghhhhhh
Mind boggling is right, endless questions. I deleted a ton. Not that I over-analyse anything ever.
This topic fascinates me, and as I mentioned before I’m a big sci-fi fan and have seen/read countless interpretations of this and I’m open to all of it, but my brain wants to understand it better.
Thanks for your comments!
And, I just started my very first blog a couple weeks ago (huge step for me!) so if everyone else is posting theirs……
Ah I get what you’re saying now.
I disagree that you can get a completely different backstory. Well I think that version of you is out there, but that’d take a massive shift to get to that version. I’ve heard of similar things happening, but it’s really drastic and you don’t need all that in order to create what you want.
What’s more likely is to shift into a version where you have healed from those past issues. They are still in your memory, but aren’t so weighty and emotional.
It’s easiest to shift into a parallel universe that is almost identical to our own, except with a few minor changes. But, when you repeatedly do that, those few minor changes get bigger and bigger, until you are exactly where you want to be. 🙂
Hells bells this is complicated,I wish you could pop over to the isle of man for a G & T and a very long chat, but i do have an appointment booked with you in February and am looking forward to it…. Susan
Oo I remember this post, and love it just as much now. It’s funn because I just read a book on parallel worlds, which covers exactly the same sorts of topics.
I completely agree with the premise, and think it can definitely be used for manifesting, by tuning in to the parallel universe we’d rather be a part of.
I could start by saying that it is what I think about other dimensions, but I won’t. Instead I will state that I am sure about this, it is not only what I think, something deep inside me just tells me this is the way it really happens. It will be a little inconvenient, because it takes a lot of details to describe, so also a lot of space to write about it, but I will try my best to keep it all as short as possible. What I will write are not stories heard from other people, but experienced by myself. So, here we go:
The immense majority of our dreams are versions of other dimensions, of other worlds we are living in, but also of this world that we consider ours, but in different places or different time. First of all I will try to use an example to make myself better understood, example which is very closely connected to one of my experiences
A truck is driving along some road.
Situation nr.1 – a man is crossing that road, being a little inattentive and also a little hazardous, so the truck driver has to slow down for no accident to happen, which results in wasting a few seconds by reducing the speed, then he reaches at a rail crossing and stopping there.
Situation nr.2 – the man decides not to cross the road, so the truck driver does not have to waste any time by reducing the speed, reaching at the rail crossing a few seconds earlier.
In such a case, there is some kind of a splitting, where two different universes follow each their own history starting from that specific moment (when the man decides or not to cross the road).
This I witnessed myself. I was one of the passengers on the train I mentioned, as that train briefly stopped at a very small station where only local trains stop, station situated just near the rail crossing where all the vehicles on the road had to wait until the train was gone. The weird thing that happened was a series of repeated jumps from one of the mentioned universes to the other, maybe 5 or 6, all within less than 3 or 4 seconds. While sitting on the window seat in the train, I simply could see in a switching order, the truck being right at the crossing, then being approximately 20 meters away from the crossing, again and again, for a few times.
I did not feel any fear or any panic, I just felt amazed by that very strange spectacle which I can not even explain in words.
The weirdest thing that bothers me a lot since then is that I have no idea in which of those two universes I ended up after those few jumps and also what became to the other me that remained in the other universe. I am also upset because I do not remember in the slightest way if that man did or did not cross the road, as that happened a few seconds before the train reached the crossing and I paid no attention to this aspect at that time.
Well, that was a very short experience, but probably not the only one about moving from one world to another. There were probably much more of them, but with no certain things to observe it is difficult to say. Anyway, it was the only one where I could observe some difference (the truck position).
Another thing that stronger makes me a believer (although I believed in such things since I can even remember) is about a few dreams that I had while still being in high school (round 1982). I dreamt with astonishing precision of details some places that I could see with my own eyes only many years later (in January 2007). One of them is the access to one of Moscow subway stations, another one is the musical theatre in the Russian city of Cheboksary and another one is in the same city, just near the river Volga. It is worth mentioning that I was on a trip to Russia only one single time in my life (from 29 December 2006 until 29 January 2007), many years after those dreams.
Another dream I had also a long time ago (more than 10 years, I think), is about the rail station right here in the city where I live now, rail station that was completely renovated last year (2013). The same thing strikes me about this one too – the accuracy of details I dreamt so many years ago.
A huge amount of my dreams are about places I have not seen yet in this reality, but I am 100 percent convinced that most of them are from different alternative worlds, as they are about places and people I already know, but look totally different, such as some building missing on a specific street, or some buildings that are new to me.
I also know that many of our dreams just tell us the place of portals through which one can go from one world to another. Most of such places are really weird positioned, as for example in many of my dreams they are placed somehow inside a wall or in a most inaccessible location such as the lower corner of the room which would actually lead to the neighbor living below and beside, or in a lower basement corner which would lead to nothing else than to the soil beneath it.
I do not want to bother by excessively writing, so I will stop here.
I would be very interested to talk on this subject, so I will provide my e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s like coming across gold. THANK YOU. THANK ME. Thanks to all of us for dreaming up all this awesomeness.
Great post Melody, thanks.
Its amazing, I’ve had this post in my inbox for weeks but only read it today(30/12/2013). Its given me the clarification, I required, on some studies I began couple of days ago.
Thanks again !
Love and Blessings.
I got to sleep every night and wake up feeling like I have lived in another reality. What is more, the lines on my left palm when I wake up are distinctly different than the ones I have when I go to sleep. I watch the change happen during the day to those lines…. it is as if another reality wants to manifest in my current world. To be honest I desperately want it. I am so glad to took the chance to discuss this topic.
Very interesting topic. If we decide to actually switch over to one of our other selves…do we lose all of the information we have gained from just reading this post or anything we have read? By going back to a specific choice we are therefore going back to a place before we’ve read this, or possibly even learned about the Law of Attraction. I guess its possible that my Self 3 (maybe even yours as well…they’re having a beer and laughing at me typing this right now) would know that even if I went back to one of my other Self 0s that I am meant to know the Law of Attraction, and all of this about the Multiverse…….I’m not even sure if I’m making sense at all. Just a thought/question/self made conundrum 🙂 Thanks for this post.
Fabulous Melody, just fabulous.
Super-stimulating for me, too, and you make it all so readily comprehensible by our limited brains/consciousness.
Yes I fully get it and want to make a quantum leap. I’m developing stronger confidence and I’m getting there, with your help of course! Thanks for showing up 🙂
Wow! Great post Melody! Very well put and thoughtfully explained! I read about these ideas a few years ago in the Oversoul Seven Trilogy book that was written by Seth (channeled by Jane Roberts). It may not be for everyone, but it could be a fit to a few of the posters that are looking to get an in depth explanation of this topic in story format. It’s a lengthy book, but I thought it was fascinating. Just thought I would share that with the others who are nudging you for more on this topic!! As always, thanks for sharing Melody!
You are right it is difficult to get my head around this concept and the possibility of this existence
I am very curious and interested about what you have said here. It brings a question to mind for me. Regarding your last paragraph, IF one should leap to another self in a parallel universe….what happens to the self in this particular universe? Does the body/vessel die or continue on without our memory of the life we leap from?
This is fantastically awesome!! A question popped up in my head after I read it. If the above is so (and I’m not implying it’s not), what is the understanding behind the term or concept of “old souls”?
The post gave me a different perspective on my life right now. Trying to see myself in a different light and as a different person remains difficult to do.
That’s really interesting. Wow, really, really interesting… Actually, if you take time out of the equation, if time is something we perceive only while we are on this playground called physical reality, all our existences occur simultaneously in this eternal now.
Not only our past incarnations, but also our future incarnations, because in reality there isn’t something like the past and the future, there is only NOW.
Gosh reading this article gave me such an euphoria. Reading it made my speed increase and it was awsome the senstation I felt. Even, not having English as my first languange I had to read out loud and I could not quite control my mouth such speed… Brilliant!!!
The sensation of that somehow I knew it, I always knew it was incredible overwhelming.
I am in ecstasy still. Thanks Melody. xxx
Love this post and you have explained it so well!!
Letting go of our stories and the need to be validated is so important.
awesome post 🙂
And yet again Melody posts at the exact right time. Just a few hours ago I was discussing this with a friend.
What I don’t get is this: While I can even accept the theory of parallel live / universes and that you can change your current situation by “hopping onto another plane / another version of yourself”, what of the people in your life? How do they fit into all of this?
What if Barbara did kiss the high school quarterback – which led onto her getting married to HIM? Then the life of her current husband and the kids would what? Just not be? For her it may very well not be – but what of the husband and kids? This is what I don’t get, because for hubby his life with Barbara is real – so if she changed her life (by doing the hop) it obviously affects the people around her too.
This just blew my mind. At one point of this article I started breathing so heavily (out of excitement) that I started choking hahaha.
A truly incredible big-picture perspective doubling as a “don’t sweat the small stuff” for the spiritual-minded. To feel like everything is so much bigger than you, yet at the same time know you’re infinitely powerful is true perfection.
I love this!! for years I have looked back on my past and wonder how I got from there to here. My life has taken many turns and I feel I have lived many lives in this one life and wondered how this could be possible and now I see how it is possible, the only thing is I was doing this unconsciously and now I want to do it consciously I know its possible and I want to that quantum leap and I will….. 🙂 cause now I know that what I have felt most of life is “real” for a lack of better words. Yippy!!! thank you
I love this sort of mental gymnastics, and having my mind blown! I totally agree that we assume things have to happen linearly. It is the only way for us to understand things if we compartmentalise and put everything into a time frame. Ultimately that is just an experience In itself! I don’t think in our current experience we can ultimately know what is going on, for the sole reason that not knowing is the experience we are having. In another parallel universe we may be having the experience that we do know what is going on. I hope that all makes sense!
Thank you for this fascinating post, I’ve heard about parallel universes and considered them as much as I can currently understand. I think I’m understanding the greater part, but I need a little clarity on something.
In the perception I have of my life now, I had to take piano lessons from age 7 through age 12; hating every moment. So there is a version of me who took piano lessons, loved every moment, and went on to become a concert pianist, moved to New York and never met the father of my children? Or does that version of me have my children and grandchildren, or does accessing that version change everything in my current perception? Can I be an awesome pianist and keep my family? The post says you need to be willing to give up your past… even the awesome, loving, joyful stuff?
Or can I just have every experience I want in my current perception? (I think I just answered my question, but I’d still like to hear what you all think. Thanks!)
Thanks to anyone who can clear that up for me.
You ask good question Judy.
I want to know this as well.
You certainly did answer your question Judy 😉
Trying to merge your story of being a pianist without a family with your current reality is pushing you to come up with ‘how’ it will happen & currently, you may only have access to a vision where you feel you have to sacrifice. You never have to sacrifice anything, but you do have to believe that you can be that awesome pianist and still enjoy your family.
It’s about tapping into the feeling & vision of being that pianist you want to be & focusing on that now, while trusting the Universe to take care of the how 🙂
Thanks Mike! I was over-thinking again. I appreciate your help.
I came to the same multiverse conclusion a while ago.
It’s fun to think that there are so many copies of me out there, going about their own business and experiencing life.
I was taking a shower this morning, wondering to myself.
“wouldn’t be cool if I can somehow switch to an alternate version of myself in another reality…”
and voila! I saw this blog.
It made my day!
Thank you Melody
Its unusual for me to make any comments on the blog posts – although I read everyone of them (more than once)! but I’m about to make my 3rd one on this one?? A friend who is very new to LOA made a comment to me last night that got me thinking. She started asking me questions about LOA about a month ago and last night she asked me, why she was getting the impression only teachers of LOA seemed to truly believe in it and everyone else seemed to struggle. Well, it must of triggered me, which surprised me somewhat. So I typed in Google, ‘Famous people who believed in LOA’. What I found within seconds is what Jim Carrey does to make his life a success. Very interesting and Inspiring and it blows it out of the water that only teachers of LOA can make it work for them. Also, a famous actor, who I won’t name, popped up and this actor is the actor I often think about when getting my head around people with very little talent who have become a massive star and gone on to be very successful in different field as well. I told my friend about it and she has gone away to think about this one now!!
nice post. this is sooooo in line with what neville goddard teaches, right? about abandoning ur past totally and seeking to be the new person you want to be, and ‘reacting’ as the person you want to be would??!!
This is fantastic! Thank you for writing this! Since reading your blog, I feel that I’ve been lead on a path where I’m manifesting things EXPONENTIALLY faster. All of your posts are great, but this may be one of my favorites.
Wow!!!!! This was absolutely awesome! I was thinking about this before i checked in with the blog and here it was! Thank you Universe for leading me here. Thank you Mel for explaining it to a degree we can understand with our brain and perspective.
I hope there will be more such topics discussed in the near future because this is the crux of it all. I know we need to deal with our perspective here, but actually delving into the way things really are sure helps! I really got this, it made me feel great, even less afraid, and it is pure awesomeness!
I would only note that ‘past lives’ and ‘future lives’ are used to give some framework to those on the ‘zero’ level: as in: ‘Oh, that set of experiences were in the section known as the 1800s by the current calendar because of the reference (not in the ‘3rd Tun-era as known in the Mayan Calendar’, or ‘the 15th year of the Emperor/Empress ….’) by which we would compare the perceived sequence. It keeps the confusion to a manageable level…. 🙂
Many of us feel that Time is a straight line.
what if there is more to it than that?
what if Time is 3 dimensional just like the physical world that we are living in.
Lets just pretend that this theory is true for a minute, then the idea of having multiple version of yourself at different physical spaces the same time is not so crazy anymore. In fact it’s easy.
It is also possible to have multiple versions of yourself at different time lines but at the same space.
Great post! I really, really enjoyed it and hope you introduce more topics like this. I’m really excited to know and become aware of this. Your post reminded me of Quantum Jumping. Are you familiar with it?
Isn’t it amazing that at any moment, I can create a new me just by identifying with new beliefs about who I am??? I particularly liked the part where you said that to become a new person, you have to let go of your current self’s past because the new self (living in a different reality – until you access her) did not have that past! Nice!! Loved that part!
I’m a fairly talented person, I’m pretty good at most things I try my hand at. So, I’ve had this theory that “Talents” are actually Knowledge &/or Expertise from my past/other lives leaking through to this one. (I.E.: I was/may have been an Artist in one or more of my past lives, which could be why I’m good at drawing, painting, & other art-stuff now.)
Thought on this theory? ^_^

Great great post!
I loved this line too ‘ when you change who you are now you change who you were’. this I have partly done through some NLP disassociation work, which was really effective and ties in with that I can see now. just earlier today I was talking to a friend about ‘ our stories’ and was realising that some of those really need to be rewritten! Then this email popped up , love love how that happens.Loving these trips down the rabbit hole magical! Thank you b x
Great post, see I have this problem with rememebering certain things about the past too well. Most of the time these are not positive things. Recently I’ve been reading a lot about the art of letting go. I am still working on it :).
All my life I had this strong belief about certain things that are supposed to happen in my life. I always knew what I wanted. 90 per cent of my ideas came true, only at some point I lost this great version of me and everything started to fall apart. If letting go and forgetting some negative past experiences is an answer to this, I would like to give it a try 🙂
Melody, can I please just take a moment to thank you? Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I am sending you so much love right now, I’m busting at the seams. This blog totally made sense to me and actually gave me major relief. I feel as if I just released tons of guilt from decisions past, relationships past and my past selves. I see now that we truly can indeed change our perspective the minute we are open to doing so. Please never stop what your doing, I’m sure you know this, but you are helping so many people regardless if they buy into the “law” or not… I don’t know a soul who couldn’t benefit from stopping by your page to get a new fresh perspective. I love you, and I am so grateful for my “Source” leading me to your blog. Truly amazing. Incredible! Bravo!!!
Lot’s of love and success to you my dear friend 🙂
“When you change who you ARE now, you actually, literally change who you WERE.” – This can’t be said enough Melody, in fact come to think of it, it’s hardly ever said. Neville Goddard wrote about it – When you revise a memory that is fixed you have repealed it and it moves forward into your future as a new past.
Love it! I have believed this for years, but could never express it quite so comprehensively. Thanks for doing it so well!
Just a thought – if there’s a version of me out there who is currently on a luxury boat being worshiped by Johnny Depp I WANT to line up with her NOW!!!!!
Lorraine you do not have that space because he is with me right now ha ha ha ha
LOL! Or maybe you two could share? Johnny boy has many versions of himself too 🙂
lol – however the thought certainly opened up my happy happy vibration so I can aligned myself more with what I working on. So, when in doubt think of JD!!!! XX
Hey maybe we could take 5 of our different selves with 5 different Johnny’s whooooo hooooo
I’m wanting to figure out how to add to the knowledge base of something new because everything I want has already been accomplished. Therefore I would not be contributing with new stuff, maybe I will figure it out one day, wait there is only NOW 🙂
This type of blog posts are my favourite one’s. Just when I think I understand it all, you send out a posting that allows me to dig deeper. Guess I just want to keep learning and digging – the work’s never done!! and AMEN to that!!
I love this post! You say it so clearly, these things which are so hard to put into words.
It is posts like this one that keep me coming to your blog.
Did you see John Cali’s blog this morning? There was an article by a guest about there being different truths on different levels. I also loved that very much because that is true.
I have often noticed that what is true for you, for what you learn when you are in higher spheres as it were, is not necessarily true for somewhat who is completely limited to this material world. You cannot say that one or the other is not true, but only that something is true for you or not (and that only in that phase where you are at).
I will be perusing this awesome blog post along with so many others again. It’s so awesome. Many thanks Melody! You are a GODDESS. xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
Indeed Mel, kudos on the post, especially the last section. The mind is a dangerous thing, it can create heaven or hell (not biblically of course), always, always choices. You have given the keys for those who have eyes to see.
