The following piece is an excerpt from my book, “Word, From Your Mother,” a daily guidance journal written for my children, Liv and Pierce-Gabriel.

Excerpt #61

We only have the present moment. The here and now is our most significant point of power to change our thoughts and beliefs. Many people, myself included, have turned to the past, searching for information or reliving experiences through memories to understand or find the root of our problems. Maybe we think if we go back there, we’ll find the key-the missing link to why we continue to do the same things over and over, reaping the same results.

I admit to visiting a past life regressionist to see if I could go back to my past lives to understand why I do the things I do and why I find it so difficult in this human body to correct the mishaps in this lifetime. Also, I’ve meditated on Akashic records in an attempt to figure this stuff out. When I experimented with both of these avenues of figuring stuff out, I had a deep knowing that I shouldn’t. I had an intuitive feeling that revisiting, in this case, most of the negatively charged experiences in my life were not to my advantage in this present moment. The more vital message I received: It’s a moot point to “go back there.”

It was not until recently that I received validation of this feeling. In one of the Seth books titled, “The Nature of Person Reality,” Seth, the entity who speaks through Jane Roberts (the medium) eloquently, and in straightforward terms, explains why revisiting our past to figure out or resolve our “now” does not serve us. He explained that when one revisits their past through whatever means (e.g., meditation, thought, etc.), it dredges negative experiences seeking a solution. This doesn’t work because we focus on “lack,” which is damaging and attracts that negativity back into our lives. It is almost as though we are hypnotizing ourselves to remain in the state of negativity to solve negativity!

On the contrary, if you revisit the past, focusing on the positive experiences you’ve had and concentrate on those experiences’ associated feelings, you are attracting that energy into your life instead. Therefore, desire and belief will align, drawing solutions, goodness, and joy to you.

Remember, we create our reality; thus, we can recreate anything we don’t desire from the vantage point of “now,” present moment awareness. We can rewrite the story that doesn’t satisfy us. We only have to imagine the happily-ever-after, and it will manifest.
