I remembered there was an occasion when time had split and doubled briefly – I’d come out into one place, bringing flowers for a friend and 15 minutes later while still visiting there, I’d come to visit a different friend in hospital, bringing the same flowers and visited there. When I’d left and walked home, time had somehow snapped back into one stream and continued from there – my walk back home from both separate places had arrived back at my door into the one life stream again.
So I wanted to lucid dream / astral time travel back to this time split to explore both streams and find out (if possible):
a) how it had occurred
b) how I could make use of these possibilities
c) whether there were any more far-reaching consequences to this. I.e. would it be advisable to leave this alone, or could I do it again?
What I discovered is that I could go back, the consequences of which was that a third ‘me’ witnessed and viewed both ‘time branches’, which is how I’d known this had happened in the first place and had remembered both streams.
I thought (lucidly) about the possibilities while ‘there’ in both streams and was able to ‘pause’ or slow the events to have long enough to think it through and not miss anything.
I didn’t manage to find out how my time line split or re-emerged – these parts went hazy/blurred, dream-like? But it seemed to me that this was possibly a good thing (maybe a self protection not to know), so I’ve left it alone for now and will ponder some more in the waking (daytime) state before doing anything further.
