It’s hard to believe until we experience it consciously, but every person we meet is a “ghost”. Each person is an in-the-moment creation of ours. As there is no objective reality, this should make total sense.
We each create versions of people we meet moment by moment. And each version we create reflects back to us what we think about that person. This explains why people we get to know very well remain consistently the same in our experience. We’re constantly recreating such people in the image of our dominant beliefs about them.
It also explains why sometimes we act one way in the company of one person, and totally another way around someone else. We “collapse” into expectations people have about us. That is unless our self image is strong enough to overcome their expectation.
Knowing this offers tremendous opportunity. If we’re creating versions of people we meet, through beliefs we hold about such people, that means we can create any versions of anyone we want.
Think about that.
If we’re having difficulty with a partner, for example, it’s only because we’re focusing into our experience that version of them which aligns with what we’re dominantly expecting from them. If that is true, then we can change our expectations of that person and that person will change. Without us even needing to involve them in the process!
I’ve had clients dramatically change versions of ex wives and boyfriends through this process. It’s not magic. It’s how the Universe is set up. Still, becoming proficient at this takes practice. Not because it’s a new skill – we’re doing this all the time, of course – but because we’ve trained ourselves into believing we’re not doing what we’re doing. So we must first unlearn our self-imposed limitations. Only then can we experience power inherent in us. The power to ongoingly, deliberately create people we meet. Including lovers.
Of course, this ability we all possess includes creating total strangers. I know this works because in experience after experience I created versions of strangers reflecting my expectation of people. I do the same with clients. My most recent experiences offer great examples of what I’m describing here.
Jedi mind “tricks” are real
Both experiences involve purchases I made at two different stores. In the first example, I bought a product for my bike. Two days later, I wanted to return it. I had the receipt, but not the original packaging. I knew the store likely wouldn’t refund my money without that packaging. But I also knew I create my reality, including other people.
So I stilled my mind. Then I imagined the store refunding my money. I felt, in that moment, how it would feel after the clerk returned my money. Then I went to the store.
I explained to the clerk who greeted me that I wanted to return the product. The clerk was hesitant so he called someone else. It turned out this other person was the store owner. For a split second I lost my focus on my expectation, but quickly regained it. He asked why I wanted to return it. I told him calmly, then he explained that it would be hard for them to resell the item without its original packaging.
I said nothing. Instead, I held to my vision of the store refunding my money. I could tell he was spinning his wheels thinking what to do.
Finally, he said he’d refund my money. It was an awesome demonstration and felt so easy!
The next day, the exact same thing happened with another item from a different store! I set my intention, then I went to the store. The cashier looked over the item. It had a little bit of wear on it and, even though he looked right at that, he agreed to take it back!
The impossible, possible
The same experience happens with my clients. Before when clients told me things that disappointed them about their lives, I used to focus on those specific disappointments. What I noticed over time was the more I focused on those things, clients would return the next session with even more trouble! But when I focused on seeing clients’ lives getting better, that’s just what I experienced: versions of clients whose lives got better!
Of course my clients have agency in their lives. It’s not like I’m overriding their intentions or their lives. What happens when we create better versions of people is we connect with such people’s Broader Perspective, which is always holding the best version of those people. In doing that, we kind of call forth that aspect from those people. Then those people, as cooperative components, are more susceptible to hearing impulses from that Broader Perspective guidance. Guidance which always leads them to their best lives.
I know this sounds impossible, incredible even. But as I wrote above, personal experience cannot be denied. Once you’ve had enough experiences like those I’ve enjoyed, you must agree something extraordinary, or extrasensory, is happening.
The thing is, something extrasensory IS happening. We all are gods in human form. We’re expanding our capabilities through earthly experience. Earth is not our home. It’s a sand box in which we learn how to expand our consciousnesses.
Most people don’t understand this for various reasons. That’s why most people think what I’m describing here is impossible. But it’s totally possible. Again, we do what I’m describing here all day every day. Not availing ourselves deliberate control of such abilities leaves us feeling out of control and alone.
Regaining who we are and our power
There, in loneliness and lack of control, it’s easy to blame others for what we see in the world. Long ago I experienced disconnection and lack of power. These days, though, I’ve regained what I once lost. That’s why I experience growing abilities like what I described above. It’s why I know the world I experience springs from beliefs I hold about it. About it and about the people in it. The more I do that, the more empowered I feel. Because I AM more empowered. Empowered as THE creator of my reality.
Developing abilities like these is part of regaining knowledge of who and what we really are. Extrasensory Perception or ESP, for example, is real. So is traveling outside of one’s body and creating people as we want them to be. All of these are every-moment, real experiences. Most of us aren’t aware we’re having such experiences though because we don’t believe they’re possible.
Nearly all religions allude to expanded consciousness as life’s purpose. That purpose becomes realized through stilling one’s mind. Then turning that stilled mind to focus on the life we’d prefer. Not the one our eyes show us. That process is the basis of a Positively Focused practice.
Most people haven’t tried stilling their minds. Not seriously. Nor have they done so under guidance from an expert. Many others start, but then give up. Only diligent, daily practice, usually under someone who’s gone before, yields expanded consciousness.
Once consciousness expands, extraordinary powers become available. But most people think stilling themselves isn’t worth their time. They’re too plugged into the Matrix. They complain about their lives and their world. Rather than doing the one thing that improves life: Becoming internally what they wish to see in the world.
There are exceptions though. Are you one?
