The running of future incidents is an interesting part of incident
clearing. They can be run in a very similar fashion as past incidents,
but with some typical differences.
First of all, time is just a dimension, an artificial, imaginary
of experiences. Experiences aren't necessarily really separate, but
dimensions make them separate, and generally speaking that is very
practical. That is in part what makes game playing possible, that
we can separate things from each other, put them in different places.
So, we don't really want to get rid of dimensions.
Time is a dimension that has some built-in fixed ideas, particularly
on this planet at this time. There is general agreement about time
being a sort of stream that moves in a certain direction. But most
advanced races have realized that there are many probable time
all in some state of existence. And they have realized that time is
a dimension one can move around in and manifest in different places.
Some of them do this with technology, others just spiritually.
The idea that each person is just one person with one time track
a linearly ordered sequence of events from the far past up till the
present, is rather limiting. It works fairly well for doing
incident clearing. Most people would accept the idea of a time track
fairly easily, and the other stuff about probable events and
dimensions and so forth would be too weird anyway. However, sooner
or later the over- simplified perception of time will break up and
more stuff will become available.
One possible expansion to the traditional time track ideas is that
there are future incidents. Actually I wouldn't try to convince
that there is a future track, but I might bring up the idea that there
could be future stuck incidents.
What is typically the scenario is that people will keep unconfrontable
events in their future. Stuff that they don't want to happen and that
they are resisting. They don't want it, but since they can't quite
confront it, it sticks.
Many of the same principles apply as with a past traumatic incident
that is stuck. The future incident is stuck because its contents
been fully processed and evaluated. It can cause emotional responses
and aberrated reactions in the present. By running it we can clear
out any negative effects it has.
Let me give an example. A new client of mine mentioned last week that
she was fearful of things that could happen, she worried about the
future. When I asked for something specific, she mentioned that she
is afraid of the big trucks at her work. Every day part of her job
is to wave in delivery trucks to the loading dock. She has to walk
behind them to get back into the office, and she worried all the time
about the truck suddenly backing up and squashing her.
Now, I could of course have asked her to specify the somatic of fear
that she had, and I could have looked for a chain of past incidents.
However, that would be very likely to go to past lives and she wasn't
quite up to accepting that idea. It was a lot easier to explain that
she was putting something in the future that she might want to change.
That puts her at cause, and it doesn't require that she believes that
something like that DID happen; it is agreed that it is just a mock
But there is an incident there alright. I asked her what it is that
would happen. Once she looks at it it becomes clear that there is
a complete incident already there. She is not making it up, she is
just looking at what is there in her future. She has an incident of
being crushed to death by a semi truck in great detail. She runs
the first part with ease, but when she gets close to the traumatic
part she can't get any further. We change to seeing it from a
and she is surprised to find that she does have a viewpoint seeing
it from a distance. She can see more of it when she isn't experiencing
it from inside. She can see the body lying on the ground, she sees
people coming out, she can look through the office windows and see
and hear somebody calling an ambulance, etc. Gradually she experiences
enough of it to become comfortable with the whole thing. After running
through it a few times the plot changes. She no longer gets crushed.
She gets past the truck and gets into the office, and happily
her work. The added perspective of seeing things from a distance made
the probable event change, so that the probabilities are now stacked
up differently and she isn't afraid of it anymore. She feels very
light. She is exterior, as a matter of fact, and it takes a little
while to get her grounded again afterwards. The exterior perspective
and the lightness from the incident stayed with her and she was very
fascinated by it.
What is happening?
One thing that appears to work differently from a past incident is
the way the incident changes. It doesn't necessarily just disappear,
it turns into something else. When it turns into what you would want
to have there, then the running is complete.
I would say that for any kind of incident, the end result is that
something changes. You add or take out something about the incident
which frees it up and causes it to no longer be stuck and give
reactions. For a past incident what we typically do is that we add
the perspective and evaluation of the person today. The incident
without sufficient consciousness there to evaluate it, so now we go
back and add the conscious evaluation and the incident is then no
longer a problem.
Typically one wouldn't change the past event itself. One would allow
it to be whatever it was, and just understand it better, but change
one's mind about it into that it happened for a good reason by one's
own causation. One could also change the event deliberately,
but that is a different technique, not the typical incident running
So, typically, we let the past be whatever it was. We just make sure
that we get the most out of it. But there is much more reason to
the future. The common agreement is that the future is what you will
be doing later on, so you damn well better be sure that it is
you want to do, not something you would hate doing. So, when running
a future incident it is usually not enough to just change one's mind
about it so that the event is now OK. Just accepting one's fate. No,
while we are at it we might just as well make it into something else.
We make the future
Consider that the future is the co-created reality of everybody
in it. It basically is what people agree that it is. That is no
from the past; the only difference is that we agree that the future
is the part that "hasn't happened yet". But now what if a bunch of
people agree that there is a lot of bad things that will happen in
the future. Well, if they make it real enough and agree well enough,
then they are right. It doesn't mean that they were good at predicting
things. It just means that the future is what you make it.
There is nothing that IS the future. It is whatever you are making
it now, and if you change your mind about it, the future changes.
If a group changes its mind, even better, the future might be greatly
It is not that the future doesn't exist. We might for simplicity's
sake say that it hasn't happened yet. But actually it is very real.
It is just that you change it quite easily, by changing your
about what it will be. It might be most comfortable to keep pretending
that it is ONLY a mock-up and hasn't happened yet. Otherwise people
might start taking the future too seriously, just like they are taking
the past too seriously.
Effect of handling
I've had several people run out large catastrophes they had in their
future. Nuclear holocaust, earthquakes, etc. If enough people do that
the future will necessarily change for the better. Particularly the
events that there is wide agreement about, like prophesies from
or the Bible, would be a prime target of incidents to run out.
It would be reasonable to say that one person who is running out a
future group incident is to some degree doing it for everybody. That
is, if 100 million people have a nuclear armageddon incident located
in 1999, they don't all have to run it out. If enough people run out
the incident, the 100th monkey effect will set in. The incident will
change for everybody.
How to do it
As with most stuck, traumatic incidents, the best way of getting
to them is through a somatic. That is usually also the reason we would
want to handle them in the first place. There is some undesirable
feeling or reaction in present time. The theory says that this is
because a frozen incident is being carried forward in present time,
instead of just being an event in its own proper time and space. The
incident has a mass, a charge to it, which is basically the unfinished
but unconfrontable business in it. There is an unfinished cycle of
action, a flow that hasn't been delivered.
The future incident works much the same as the past incident. Its
charge is being carried forward in present time as an anxiety of some
sort. We might not choose to call it an unfinished cycle of action,
but in a way it is. It is a cycle of action the person wouldn't be
able to confront or allow to complete. It is the kind of event that,
if it happens, he would go partially unconscious and get an engram
about it. He is just now doing it in advance.
Where do they come from?
Ideally speaking one would be able to allow anything whatsoever to
happen, but would choose only that which one prefers. If there is
something that the person can not allow to happen, and he has some
stuck attention on it, it might form a future traumatic incident.
I guess it could also form other troublesome constructs, but at least
in certain cases it becomes a specific future incident with a date
and time and location and everything.
One way this can happen is if one somehow gets attention on the
that a certain traumatic event might happen, but one can't bear to
think the possibility completely through. It could be that somebody
would die for example. If just once one realizes that Uncle Joe might
die, but then one blanks out and becomes unable to think it through.
It creates a frozen half done incident somewhere in the future. One
wouldn't do it unless one already has some sort of limitation or
The future incident probably doesn't get created before one starts
thinking about it, has an adverse reaction to it, and then leaves
the frozen incident there.
I realized that I had an incident of my wife dying in a car accident.
The incident had a specific future date and time and location, I could
date/locate it very precisely. I ran through it with all its gory
details, from all viewpoints I could find, including the time
for me and the kids, and so forth. I realized how that could be a
useful experience, what we could all learn from it and so forth. After
running it through a few times the incident changed. The truck didn't
hit her car after all and she made it to her destination without
And then I didn't have the anxiety I had earlier.
Probably the most key thing to include is finding out which lessons
one can learn from the incidents. What would you need such an incident
for? The only reason an incident would really happen to you would
be that it is the best way for you to learn a certain lesson. Now,
lessons can be learned without anything traumatic happening, and that
is usually more fun. But, if you aren't quite getting it, you aren't
quite listening to your own signals, then the gradient gradually gets
stepped up. If you are missing some major points in your life, then
you might need a major jolt to wake you up. We can avoid the really
unpleasant wake-up calls by getting the point in advance.
When you run a future incident you can get the point that you would
learn from the incident. You can learn it and change your life
right now, and you don't have to go through the actual incident. For
example, if you run a future incident of somebody dying, you might
realize that "I should have told her I love her", or "We should have
had more fun together". Now, if you take responsibility for that and
act on it, you change the future. You learned the lesson, you don't
need a violent reminder anymore. We are not talking just a cognition,
one would have to really GET IT and act on it.
It would probably be a good idea to run out deaths and accidents for
all of one's close family members if one is at all concerned about
it. Don't mock it up if it isn't there, but if there is the slightest
anxiety, there is probably something to run. Run the incidents until
you realize what you would learn from them and until they change to
There is no reason to take future incidents too seriously. Just
one has a little anxiety about a possible future incident doesn't
mean that it will happen. There are many other factors, and if you
generally have positive intentions for your life, they are likely
to prevail. A future incident is just a probable event. It competes
with many other probable events to become your reality. But you might
just as well stack the odds in the direction of a future you would
prefer to live.
If your future is open and fluid, without fixed negative events, and
you have positive intentions and flexibility enough to deal with what
comes up, then you are sure to have a bright one.
