I time travel a lot. That’s a pretty unbelievable sentence, right? Well, it’s true, and you all can do it too. Most of you have done it or will do it at some point in your life because this is something we ALL can do. You know that whole astral projection thing? You know, where you leave your body while asleep and go traveling around everywhere? It’s a lot like that. Sometimes I travel through time in my dreams. In fact, I do that a lot and don’t even realize it, and many people do it without realizing it. Here’s a fun fact: we have all astral projected at least once in our life. It’s just a natural ability we have because remember that you are not a human being having a spiritual experience. You are a spiritual being having a human experience. In this post, I will share my experience I had last night and also teach you how to do this yourself.
I deal with a lot of insecurities, and I sometimes worry about my relationship with my boyfriend. I worry from time to time about us breaking up, which is a fear I’ve never had before in a relationship. I often times get annoyed with myself because of this, but it is something I’m working on. Don’t we all have our inner demons we’re trying to vanquish? I’ve gotten much better about it over the years, and open communication with my boyfriend has helped a lot. Anyway, so I wanted to see my future with my boyfriend. I wanted to know what would become of us. Where would we live? Would we have children? Are we happy?
I started out with meditating. Always, always, always start with a meditation. I use meditation to relax, clear my mind, and let go of expectation. I take three big breaths, and with each breath, I set an intention. The first breath, I set the intention of clearing my mind. The second breath, I set the intention to let of expectation and doubt, and the third breath, I set the intention to relax and let go. Sometimes I do need to sit there and continue to do breathing exercises for a few more seconds until I feel ready enough, but when I do feel relaxed and mellowed out, I imagine a long white hallway. This hallway is like a tunnel, and at the end of it is a big wooden door with a gold handle. As I walk down this hallway, I’m hearing my footsteps echo. I set the intention that I’m either going far into the future or the past. With each step, I’m getting farther and farther from the present time. Then as I stand inches from the door, I set the intent one last time that when I open this door and step through, I will either be in the present or the past. I take a moment to take a few breaths to relax myself and let go more before turning the gold knob and opening the door. I usually see blackness behind the open door, and when I step through, The blackness disappears and I start to see people and the place I’m in.
Last night, I did exactly that exercise and found myself outside. When you are starting to see images or even start feeling emotions or hearing things, it’s important to not let your doubt block you. Just let go of having to be right or wrong because there truly is no right or wrong. Let go of your disbelief and just go with it. Let the images, sounds, feelings, etc. flood through you and then decide later after your meditation whether or not it was real because only YOU can decide what is reality. Because you make your own reality every day. Who is to say what is real and what isn’t? Only you can decide that for yourself.
Anyway, back to my story. I was outside, and the sky was a beautiful blue. There were some clouds out, but I only saw a couple of them. I was in an orchard somewhere, and I saw a little boy running. He looked to be around 3 or 4 years old, and he had curly brown hair, a cute little nose (it looked just like my boyfriend’s nose), and had tanned skin. He honestly looked like the miniature version of my boyfriend. He was wearing jeans with a red striped T-shirt. There was another child, she looked to be around eleven or twelve, and she was chasing after this boy. She had long straight hair, and big eyes. I think they were brown eyes. She said to the boy, “come on, we’re not supposed to be out here! You know what mom said. She’ll be so mad. We’re not supposed to be this far out.” The boy stopped and stared at me. He started to point at me and said, “look! It’s mom!” The girl panicked for a second and said, “where!? Where is she? We’re in so much trouble if she sees us.”
The boy shook his head and kept pointing at me. “No. She’s standing right there. She looks different. She is young. She’s younger than mommy.”
The girl picked up the boy and said, “come on. We should go.” The girl kept looking around, but couldn’t see me. “You’re freaking me out.” She carried the boy through the orchards, and I saw orange, lemon, and walnut trees. Once we got out of the trees, I saw a house to my left. It had a large porch that looked to be an add-on to the original house. The entire house itself looked to be renovated with added on rooms. A woman that looked like me but older, stepped out from the front door. She had on a dress and an apron. She said, “Kids! Get inside. Lunch is almost ready.” Then she saw me and put her hands on her hips. “Look what the cat dragged in. It’s my younger self coming to spy on her future.” The girl walked past my future self and said, “yeah. He was seeing her earlier, and it freaked me out.” The girl went into the house with the boy, and I looked at my future self more closely. I was a tad bigger than I am now. I made a comment to her about my weight and she said, “well what do you expect to happen after having 3 kids and aging? You don’t keep your figure forever. Come inside.”
She opened the screen door for me, and the first thing I saw were the stairs that led up to the second floor. To the right of the staircase was the living room with lots of windows that really opened up the room. The entire floor throughout the kitchen and living room was wooden. There was a round kitchen table to the left next to the kitchen. The kitchen also had a lot of above where the counter top was against the left wall. My future self took a seat at the kitchen table, and said, “what is it you need to know? What’s going on right now where you’re at?”
Me: Well I’m 22, almost about to be 23. I’ll be graduating college in February. (then I went on with more detail about where I’m at with my relationship with my boyfriend that I want to keep private).
Future self: Okay, I see, I see. You’re at that point. (my future self thought for a moment). Okay, what is it that you need to know? What’s troubling you?
Me: My relationship. What will become of us?
My Future self laughs: Oh deary, you worry way too much. Everything will work out just fine. You both will be happy.
Me: Is Erik and Voltaire still part of you life?
Future self: Erik is still very much part of your life. He never goes away and never will. My relationship with Voltaire has dwindled down a bit. He’s not as involved since I had the kids, but he’s still there.
Me: Can I see Josh? Is he happy?
Future self: Oh yeah! Come with me!
We get up and go to a door that leads to the back part of the house, and I see Josh chopping wood with an ax. I start to cry because he looked so happy with his life. We walked down and Josh put down his ax to kiss my future self on the lips. He had a big smile on his face when he saw her. “Watchya need, baby,” he asked. “Lunch almost ready?” He groped my future self a bit, which made me feel happy that he still found me attractive after having 3 kids.
My future self said to him, “my past self is here. She wanted to see if you were happy.”
He threw his ax on a tree stump and then sat down on another stump. He wiped the sweat off his face and said, “oh yeah? What does she have to say?” He couldn’t see me at all. My future self had to translate everything I was asking. I asked him if he was happy, and he smiled and said, “very much so, yes.”
Me: Ask him if there is any advice that he’d like to give his past self.
My future self asked him, and he said, “well that depends. Where are we at in this time?” I explained the year, month, and what was going on in our relationship. He said, “Oh yeah. I remember those times. I was a lot more scared that I had let on. Tell my past self that everything is going to be okay. You’ll be happy, and to not worry so much. Don’t be so scared to make a decision. Yeah, leading up to making the decision can be scary and you don’t want to make the wrong one, but you’ll know whether or not it’s right. Once you make the decision, you’ll feel it right here.” He put a fist to his chest. “You’ll feel it right here if it was the right choice or not. It’s just the leading up to it that gets to ya. You’ll be fine, so don’t worry.” I nodded and thanked them both.
My future self escorted me back to the house, and said, “if you ever need help with anything, if you ever feel insecure about anything, you are always welcome back here. Was there anything else you wanted to ask me? Anything else on your mind?” We were standing on the back porch, and I asked, “yes. What about my future career? What will happen?” ” Lots of things will happen,” she said laughing. “A lot will happen in 2017. So much will happen that it’ll make your head spin, but keep writing!” She pointed her finger at me. “You better keep writing and finish that book soon because you will publish it next year, but you must have it done soon. You hear me?” I nodded my head, and she said, “okay good. Anything else?” I shook my head and she said, “okay. Take care of yourself.” And then I shot back from my meditative state, and immediately left out of the room to tell my boyfriend what happened.
I highly suggest everyone do this. It’s always an amazing experience. Then share your experience! I’d love to hear how it works 🙂 I love you guys. Don’t forget to laugh today <3
