What role does karma play in timeline shifts? And how can we sometimes remember things so very differently, when there is little or no supporting physical evidence?
I received a fascinating email question this past month:
“Isn’t shifting to a new timeline simply changing direction, like a ship changing course? For example a ship’s captain can decide to alter course and go in a completely new direction, but the captain cannot change where the ship has been. So in the same way, a person cannot alter their past or Karma, which is actually good because we create good karma also. For example, let’s say in a person’s past they had a huge argument with another individual, you may have healed it within yourself but the other person has free will to choose how the deal with it. It is impossible to jump to a timeline where the incident didn’t take place because of the law of karma. So aren’t we just really adjusting our current reality in order or adjust our future reality? There is no jumping to a parallel timeline outside of karma.
With the karma question, let’s use a little more of an intense situation. Let’s say a 19 year old individual did something really dumb, was drunk driving and caused someone to lose their life. They paid their debt to society, and years later got their life more in order and became a spiritually aware human and began living as a new person. Are you saying that they could manifest out of a timeline reality where their drunk driving never happened? Not only did they create karma with the people and families involved in the accident, but also their family and friends went through this event with them. And sometimes the negative things that happen are major growing points in life, so by jumping out of karma, we lose those lessons?
I replied that some of us notice that apparently, our official histories have actually changed. For me, sometimes that means more money is now in my bank account, or my body is slightly different physically. For others, sometimes long-standing ‘permanent’ physical disabilities are gone, as if they never existed. Our memories are quite real, and certainly this is where karma comes in, since many of us clearly remember events that ‘never were.’ Yet, we know they were true.
I have sometimes seen in my own life, and in the lives of those close to me, that the past can change quite radically from what we remember. I’ve shared some truly astonishing reality shifts in my books, such as the time my friend, Susan, was talking with me on the phone about how she’d recently broken her leg, and during our conversation noticed that her leg was feeling itchy–and soon after, she returned to the same doctors who’d examined and X-rayed her leg, to discover her leg was not broken. Not only was it now never broken (thus never needing a cast), but it never had been broken. This created a bit of a confusing situation for all involved at that time, if attempting to make sense of what had just transpired.
Such radical changes seem to happen not so much through someone intensely wishing for and intending such changes to their personal past, but as larger parts of a greater spiritual awakening and development. The lessons are seldom lost when they are felt deeply on an emotional and energetic level, and thus are real to memory and Mind, despite not being part of any current physical historical records, in some cases.
Quantum Mind, Classical Brain
I was recently talking with a physicist friend of mine, who’d just experienced a wild reality shift, involving reality being completely different from what he knew to be true, and what he clearly remembered. Though we’d often discussed how reality shifts can occur, this had been more of a philosophical conversation for him, until one day this year when he experienced a shocking reality shift in his own personal life that he knew for sure was real. He and his wife both shared memories involving certain medications being kept in a certain location in their home–yet these medications that had been prescribed were now gone. The pharmacist and the doctor had no records to suggest that the prescription was still current, and they were not open to hearing a theory regarding quantum physics, consciousness, and observation to explain what to them was not a mystery at all.
My physicist friend sincerely longed to know how is it possible for someone to have memories that no longer match confirmation and corroboration from current external physical reality? Because, as my physicist friend put it, our brain might be expected to match with and correspond to all other aspects and details of this reality, so we could be expected to not even notice anything had changed. Yet many of us are noticing some changes have occurred.
My go-to explanation for this seeming discrepancy that provides some of us with the ability to remember a different reality–a different reality–can be credited to the way that German philosopher, mathematician and scientist Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz defines consciousness. Leibniz describes that consciousness arises thanks to levels of perception. Leibniz is one of two famous inventors of Calculus (the other being Sir Isaac Newton), and I adore his brilliant way of showing that we have consciousness of something when we have a second order apperception of a first order original sensory perception. For example, Leibniz writes in Principles of Nature and Grace:
“it is good to distinguish between perception, which is the internal state of the monad representing external things, and apperception, which is consciousness, or the reflective knowledge of this internal state, something not given to all souls, nor at all times to a given soul.”
From this view of levels of perception, we can envision how our memory can be thought of as residing in consciousness in our MIND, while the physical historical records and details, along with our brain can stay attuned with a given physical reality. In this way, memory and the mind form a kind of collaboration capable of operating outside of everyday experiences of space and time–suggesting that sometimes we can experience such things as: premonitions, deja vu, intuitive insights, and retrocausality. With a quantum mind accessing various levels of memories, we can flex our sentient ‘muscles’ and gain increased levels of experience with and comfort in shifting reality, quantum jumping, and collectively experiencing Mandela Effects together.
We may begin to notice that what we consider to be karma might be also viewed as higher levels of our consciousness collaboratively co-creating with higher levels of others. These higher levels can be viewed as converging at the very highest levels, at which point we can envision a convergence at a point where there is zero entropy. This looks a lot like what Leibniz posited as being the “perennial philosophy.” In about 1710, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz wrote a letter in response to someone asking him what philosophical school he followed; Leibniz replied that he follows the school of the perennial philosophy, “Philosophia Perennis.”
Optimizing Quantum Mind and Memory
When we acknowledge that we are not manifesting in a bubble, but rather are collaboratively co-creating, we can begin to better appreciate the value of the Mandela Effect. Thanks to the Mandela Effect, we can witness the return of some long-extinct plants and animals, or so-called “Lazarus species.” Thanks to the Mandela Effect, we can witness some instantaneous upgrades to our physical bodies, such as our hearts now being situated in the center of our chest, and our kidneys now being located farther from risk of possible injury from “kidney strikes” to the relative safety under our rib cages. Our collective memory can sometimes remember that things were different–and sometimes, we can remember things more than one way.
For best results, I recommend that we remind one another and ourselves to initiate and maintain positive onward-and-upward intentional guidance by asking, “How good can it get?” every day and in every situation.
