What if we could go back in time to heal an illness at an earlier, less-advanced stage? Or go back even further to the moment right before an illness took hold in our bodies? A number of researchers, Helmut Schmidt being one of the earliest, have studied the phenomenon of time displacement—that is, influencing the past—with significant positive results. Robert Jahn and Brenda Dunne found similar results. These two have produced masses of data showing that intention irrefutably can have an effect on inanimate objects. While they have (at the time of this writing) conducted only a relatively small number of trials to see whether intention can work backward in time, they found these time-displaced experiments to have an even greater effect.
Research: Human Intention & Healing
Psychologist William Braud, who has amassed the largest body of research demonstrating that human intention can affect not just inanimate objects but other living organisms, suggests that there might exist “seed” moments, perhaps at the onset of a condition, when the past is more readily changed.
So, if you’re willing, here’s a little experiment with time, consciousness, and healing. Before reading further, take a moment to identify an area of dis-ease in your life—a physical or emotional condition that you would like to “ease.”
Experiment: A Healing Meditation
Now, relax your body and quiet your thoughts with some deep, slow breaths…. Let your sense of identification shift from the solidness and limitation of matter to the bright, beautiful energy underlying the physical universe, the energy physicists call the Zero Point Field. Feel your cells vibrating in light and well-being. All the particles that make up your body are becoming less dense, with the molecules, the atoms, the subatomic particles spreading out, so they can be easily reconfigured. As you leave the density of matter behind, you enter a realm of limitless possibilities where time and space have no bearing.
Proceed a little further into the experiment by imagining that you’re not alone as you read. Change your mind about the normally solitary experience of reading so that you are now, simply through your intention to do so, linking with every other mind who is reading these words. All consciousness is connected. To quote one of the pioneers of modern physics, Erwin Schrödinger, on the nature of consciousness, “The overall number of minds is just one.”
And because time is a more fluid thing than we realize, imagine that your mind is transcending the fluid boundaries of time as well as space to connect with every mind that has in the past and will in the future experience these words. This is happening automatically simply because you’re thinking it. (You don’t even need to believe it; just imagine what it would feel like if you did.)
Picture this joined consciousness as clear, beautiful, and only positive. As we join minds, we leave behind the clutter of small, weak thoughts that so often cloud our attention and we rise into a Higher Mind that is wise and wonderful. In this Higher Mind, we amplify each other’s power for good and automatically repel harm. You may already feel a difference. Your senses may be a little sharper; you might feel warmth or tingling or gooseflesh. Perhaps you’re a little more awake. You may notice that your body is relaxing and you’re breathing more deeply. You may feel nothing at all, the real magic happening outside of your conscious awareness. It doesn’t matter what you perceive. Just imagine what it would be like if you felt certain, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that miracles are normal and starting to unfold in your life.
Now hold the deepest, most heartfelt intention that every reader of these words—past present, and future—manifest perfect health and wholeness. For a moment, let these unseen, unknown others matter to you. Feel your heart open in compassion for their struggles and pain. With all your heart, send the pure, clear energy of our joined consciousness back through the timelines of each of our personal histories to where it’s most needed. Feel the immense relief and joy as healing is received…. Hold this thought lightly and with wonder, like you would a butterfly that just alit in your hand. Hold it gently… no need to strain… and let it go.
Healing Sent Back Through Time
Just as anonymous prayer has been shown to have a definite healing effect, even when the recipients are unaware that prayer is being offered on their behalf, even when healing is sent back through time, just this easily, a powerful prayer has now been set in motion on your behalf. Take in the gift of all these prayers. Don’t try to understand how this works, or when it works, or if it works. Just let it go and put your mind to other things.
And now you’ve become more than a passive reader—you’ve become part of this experiment, reshaping matter and calling forth miracles for yourself and countless others whom you will never know.
