“Your future is whatever you make it, so make it a good one.” – Doc Brown, Back To The Future
Welcome! Today we are going to create our past.
Good luck with that, you say? I know what you’re thinking. That horse already left the barn.
Or did it?
Maybe. Maybe not.
Did you know that in this very moment, your cells are excitedly working overtime, organizing themselves, to create your future Self?
Did you also know that our brain doesn’t know the difference between reality and imagined reality – or reality created from our imagination?
What does our past and our imagination have to do with our future Self?
I’m a dreamer, a Day Dream Believer!
Sometimes, I feel as if I live in my imagination.
Fortunately, over the past couple of decades, science is proving that time spent in imagination and visualization – dreaming and scheming – is time well spent.
I’m sure, by now, you’ve heard of the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction operates on the premise that like attracts like.
Many people around the world are using the Law of Attraction at this very moment to attract things they desire into their lives – everything from material things like a bigger house or more money, to a new relationship or better friendships – and just about everything in between.
Most of you know that I like to think outside the box … or, OUTSIDE THE MOX!
Have you ever thought about using this universal law along with some creative ingenuity to not only attract but to create your Future Self?
Back to “Back to the Future” …
What if I told you that you could use your past to create a very different future?
What if I also told you that it doesn’t matter if your past is really your past?
Stay with me …
Remember when I told you that our brains don’t know the difference between imagination and reality. Our brain cells and neural pathways fire up in an identical way when you think of a situation that really happened or you imagine a situation as though it happened.
In this day and age, everyone talks about “hacks.” In this fast paced digital world we live in, we want instant results. We hack aging and longevity. We hack ways to read faster. We find ways to hack our productivity. We hack just about anything we can. Heck, we even try to find ways to hack hacks!
Did you know there is a “hack” or a shortcut to creating that future Self you’ve always desired – the one that lives in your heart – the one you’ve been aching to make a reality but have fallen short, up until now (remember the power of ‘up until now?’ – another ‘hack?’)
How about using those imagination skills, you know the ones you used every single day as a young child, to create a new past – one in which the Future Self you’ve been trying so hard to create – has already happened?
How on earth does that work?
Well, first of all, it doesn’t really happen on earth.
It happens through the world of the unseen. It happens through energy – invisible, pulsating molecules of energy that ultimately morph into your Future Self.
Let’s pretend that I’ve always wanted to be a top inspirational speaker.
Now, let’s pretend that I’ve also dreamed of being on a Ted Stage, giving one of the greatest Ted Talks of all time – like, Brene Brown BIG!
Now, let’s pretend those things have already happened.
How do we do that?
By using an imagination technique called, “Remember When?”
It goes like this:
Remember When I was on that Ted Stage and I gave that talk about Mastering Modern Midlife? Remember When the audience started laughing and cheering. Remember When the audience gave me a standing ovation? Remember When my Ted Talk went viral? Remember When Oprah called to ask me to be a guest on Super Soul Sunday? Remember When I was sitting next to Oprah under those big oak trees in Montecito?
You get the picture (pun very much intended!)
Now, if you really want to speed things up, you know “hack the process” a bit further and attract that imagined reality as quickly as possible … what do you do?
You throw a party! You call up some close friends, Forever Fierce Sisters, of course. You plan a Zoom Call with a group of sisters, ideally 8 total (8 is the number of infinity – a powerful number in group energy and manifestation) and play the “Remember When” game. You invite your friends to join in and add to your imagined future reality. Together, you create your future by pretending your future has already happened. It helps to stir up a lot of positive energy and emotion, to envision every single colorful detail of your future Self along with your new reality.
You’ll be amazed watching your friends begin to dream bigger for you than you could ever dream alone.
See, you really can go “Back to the Future.”
Cheers Beauties, don’t you Remember When?
