Shrinking and Expanding Time ©2014 Joan M. Newcomb
What is time? Is it something that measures our days, or is it an imaginary creation by Consciousness?
I had an experience this morning waiting for a client call. Watching the time on my laptop, it was 8:59am for what seems like several minutes. I glanced away for just a second and when I looked back it was 9:01am. What happened?
After life threatening experiences, people shift their experience with time. Some will slow down, to experience and savor every moment.
Some will speed up, to make sure they don't miss anything available to them in the physical realm.
The thing is, when you are in the present moment, it can feel timeless, expansive, and yet not take a lot of time.
Sometimes people slow down because they're actually scared or resistant. Sometimes people speed up because they're in pain.
If you fully center inside yourself, in Presence, fear and pain disappear.
And use of time seems entwined with abundance. Chronic underearners will be vague about time. They don't value their time.
I became very disciplined about time when my sessions became more expensive. An infinite amount of transformation can be achieved in 30 minutes. And change continues to happen days, weeks, months afterwards as well.
A simple technique for playing with time is to imagine silly putty (it can be any color, I prefer mine to be sparkly purple). If you need more time to do something, imagine stretching it out. If you need something to go by (or occur) more quickly, then squeeze it small.
If you do this from a space of fun and joy, this can have miraculous results.
Try this whenever you're feeling playful this week, and see what happens!
