Michael: You mentioned timelines. What do you mean by that? What are they?
Theresa: Timelines are highways of creation. From a multi-dimensional perspective, you might call that 5d reality, beyond our current human awareness. Part of playing in this human world, as you know, is that we have the boundaries of what we call our time, space, reality.
Michael: And Einstein said you can never solve a problem on the level in which it was created.
Michael: So Einstein was practicing the principles of Science of Mind.
Theresa: Yes, he knew about quantum physics.
Michael: And metaphysics. Think of our New Thought teachers such as Emma Curtis Hopkins and Thomas Troward.
Theresa: We will come back to them another time. Now I want to talk about timelines because it explains how we create our own reality through the power of choice, even if those choices are from another lifetime! It is all about consciousness. What if we make hundreds of decisions or choices each day; they could be tiny choices such as what do we eat? How long do we exercise? Do I brush my teeth before or after I have a shower? These choices are so insignificant in any given time period that we don’t think of them as impacting our lives. But the concept of timelines suggest that because we are pure consciousness or a “soul having a human experience”, and knowing that our essence or soul is not defined by time and space, that every time we make a choice which takes us on a new path such as moving home, beginning a new job or getting married, we effectively create a new timeline. So then you have that concept of a road not traveled.
Michael: Yes. That road not traveled becomes a static highway.
Theresa: The imprint is there but we have not placed our conscious intent on that grid.
Michael: So it remains inactive or dormant?
Theresa: Exactly. From the point of view of our conscious, self-referencing, who we think we are human self, that road was not taken. But from a perspective of expanded multi-dimensional consciousness, all bets are off.
Theresa: Well, the best way to describe this is to give you an illustration. This also explains the way in which our current reality can be transformed through what we call past-lives. And you don’t have to be a believer for this to work.
Michael: I don’t have to be a card-carrying member of reincarnation therapy?
Theresa: No. Regression therapy or past-life therapy are usually synonymous terms. Although, of course, one can regress to an earlier time in this life, and uncover a buried or hidden memory, which can help heal an issue. Regression doesn’t have to be to a past-life. But we are largely discussing the nature of our soul, which is multidimensional.
Michael: And what is the interface between the soul and the human?
Theresa: Human beings are structured with a hard drive which creates a series of belief systems. Many of these are imprinted during the early childhood years.
Michael: There is that famous saying: Give me a child ‘til the age of seven, and I will make him mine for life.
Theresa: That’s right. That quote references the plasticity or ease in which belief systems are formed in the early years. But whether or not someone beliefs in, oh, for example, a natural law such as the cycle of day and night, this natural law still exists.
Michael: Science of Mind discusses the objective and subjective and natural laws. As you know, I see it as a philosophy not a religion as you don’t have to believe in a doctrine.
Theresa: Yes. That’s why Science of Mind is such a good philosophy. If you take a slice of time at 2:00pm in the afternoon, in that moment it is light. And someone questioning a natural law might say: Oh, I don’t see the night sky. It is not present right here and right now. Therefore, I don’t believe the sky will become dark. This is a very basic example of a natural law taken in a certain context, as a slice of time, as defined in that moment. But we know, from our experience that as surely as ‘night follows day’, to quote Shakespeare, that the moment of night will come.
And you don’t have to believe. It just is.
This is the same way in which consciousness works. There are beliefs that are hard-wired into us, as I mentioned above. This gives us our view of the world and our self-identity. But just because we have these beliefs, it doesn’t stop the larger universal or natural cycles taking place. And this is how I see this concept of timelines.
Michael: In essence, as we shift our perspective, (inside), our outer world changes. Most of us in these new thought circles know about this, or have heard about this. Science of Mind is a practical way to learn how to harness our consciousness, be definite and deliberate creators through Treatments or affirmative prayers. So how does this relate to timelines?
Theresa: I’ll tell you. In my opinion, it’s partly about those parts of us that are unconscious. Remember, we mentioned those dormant timelines.
Theresa: I think we’ll take a break here and pick it up next time. Are you okay with that?
Michael: Okay. Keep us in suspense. Until next time…
