My past is factual. My past isunchangeable,” but those beliefs are illusory. New research in psychology shows thatwe don’t remember anything correctly. There have been many stories of people havingphantom memories that, when investigated, are discovered never to have taken place.Maybe the person saw a movie, or had a dream, and remembered it as real. Maybetheir brain manufactured it altogether. In any event, we don’t remember facts orspecifics with any degree of accuracy. Certainly, we don’t see our past accurately. Wesee it through the lens of today—our perceptions, our paradigm, our mind-set, ourbeliefs. When people look back and say, “I had a terrible childhood,” that is a judgmentand a belief and a perception about what took place.Leo Buscaglia, the late author and inspirational teacher, was a wonderful,endearing, spiritual warrior of the light. Decades ago, I got to meet him. I stood in linefor two hours. Why did it take two hours? Because he took forever with each person. Hesat with each person and talked to them. I read an interview with Leo in which he saidhis childhood was wonderful. Then they interviewed his brother, who said, “I don’t knowwhat he’s talking about. Our childhood was miserable. We struggled, we starved, weREPORT 4: The Seventh Clearing Technique: Rewriting Your Story1

were unhappy.” The brother looked at the same situation, the same set of facts, and hesaid, “Man, that was bad.” Leo looks at the same situation, the same background, thesame family, and he says, “It was heaven. It was so great.” Which was true? They wereboth true. As I’ve already said, life is an optical illusion. You see what you believe, sowe have to stop and ask whether we’re looking at our past in a way that serves us. Is ithelping us get the results we want or not? Many people are still coming from thevictimhood stage, especially when they look at their family and upbringing.We all look for the moment like the one in the movie Back to the Future, wherethe father goes back in time and relives a moment. This time, instead of being bullied bythe bully, he hits the bully, which creates a whole new future timeline for him. Hebecomes a strong and successful family man and science-fiction author, all because hispast was changed.I love this movie because it illustrates this clearing technique. We look at our pastand say, “I can understand that it might have taken place that way, which may or maynot be factual. How would I prefer it to be?”We sit down and write a new story. We write a new script. I remember doing thisfor the first time in my life. I was still struggling, I was still unpublished, I was stillunknown, but I was working on myself, and I was scrambling to learn clearingtechniques so I could get more results. I wanted to be an author.I blamed many of my current struggles on my past. I would say to myself, “If myfather had taught me about prosperity, or if he had encouraged my writing, or if mymother had encouraged me to be an author early on, or if they didn’t have all thesehang-ups about deserving wealth and success, I wouldn’t have my hang-ups.” I blamedmy parents—which is victimhood—and then I thought, “I keep hearing about writinganother story. How can I reinterpret the past? How can I go back and pretend it actuallyhappened a different way?”So, I sat down, took a pen and paper, and wrote, “I was born in a happy family.My father had a great attitude about wealth: he did work hard for a living, and he earnedhis money honestly, but he also understood there was more than enough to go around.He had an abundance mind-set. My mother read books to me when I was a child”—which in fact she did— “but she also encouraged me to write my own books early on. Istarted to write when I was just a child. I would go in the bedroom I’d close the door,and I’d start to write a short story. When I came out and shared it with my folks, theywould encourage me. They would applaud it. They would find the good in it.”I’m making up all of this.I’m rewriting the story of my past. Since I’m not remembering the past accurately,anyway, let me create it the way I would like to remember it. How you view things is howyou create things. How I view my past is influencing my present and my future. If Icreate a new, more empowered story, I can create a new, empowered moment; out ofthat, I can create a new result in the future.REPORT 4: The Seventh Clearing Technique: Rewriting Your Story2

Byron Katie, one of my favorite spiritual leaders, often asks, “Who would you bewithout your story?” Your story is the story you’re telling yourself right now, and you canrewrite it. There are people who blame their genes. “I have weight genes,” or, “I havebad personality genes. I have anxiety genes.” Stephen Covey, author of The SevenHabits of Highly Successful People, would say, “Your genes may influence you, butthey don’t have to determine you.”How you view your past is influencing your present and yourfuture.The same is true with your past. Circumstances influence you, but you are biggerthan your circumstances. Bruce Lipton’s book The Biology of Belief discussesscientific evidence that your genes can be turned on and turned off by your thoughts,beliefs, and emotions. Lipton says your genes are almost suggestions: you fuel themwith your own attention, belief, emotion, and energy. Somebody who is pessimistictends to turn off the life force. An optimistic person tends to turn on the life force.This idea is so empowering, so freeing. You can look at your past and say, “Itmay not have been ideal, but I am bigger than those circumstances.”Let me digress here to make an important point. Sometimes people readinspirational books, go to seminars, and so on, but they don’t make the changes theywant. This is for one key reason: they return to their environment and fall into their oldways of being, thinking, and doing, because their environment—what’s around them—reminds them of their old selves.What can you do to anchor this change, to really make it happen? Change theenvironment in your home or office. Move the desk. Move the furniture. Put up apainting. Paint the walls. Move if you need to, but do something that signifies, “I havemade a change.” This is a missing secret to lasting change that most people don’t talkabout. At the end of a long presentation, I will tell people, “You’ve been fed inspiration,you’ve been fed information, but when you go home, you will tend to fall into your oldhabits and routines unless you do one thing: change your environment.”In short, rewrite your story and anchor the change by changing something in yourenvironment to remind you of that transformation. Your story is a narrative, andeveryone has a narrative that they tell. Like any great novel, you can write that narrativeas a happy tale with a happy ending. Others have chosen to write the narrative of theirlives as a tragedy: “I was born on the wrong side of the tracks etc.”REPORT 4: The Seventh Clearing Technique: Rewriting Your Story3

Rewrite your story and anchor the change by changingsomething in your environment to remind you of thattransformation.You can change the nature of your story right now. Maybe up to this moment, it’s beena story of struggle, of wrestling with life. But now you know how to set new goals and newresults. Now it’s becoming the hero’s journey.Write a new story. Write it out the way you would like it to be, flesh out thefeelings, the emotions, the characters. Realize that the story you’ve been telling yourselfcan be rewritten, and the story you tell about your future can be retold right now. Ofcourse, you can rewrite your past, but your future is unscripted and unwritten. You cansit here and write out how you would like it to be.You can find out more about Dr. Joe Vitale at FROM LEE:Take the good advice from Dr. Joe Vitale and use these tips for rewriting your own story: You are writing for yourself; it’s personal and you don’t have to share it.Mistakes, misspellings, and fragmented sentences are OK—you aren’tgoing to be graded on this!Think of your writing instrument like a personal magic wand to create your futureand bring it into reality.Write it to a person you have never met.Write a story of your desired future—talk about the way you wanted it to go andhow it did go.
