42112. Backtracking Identities
When talking about identities or valences, many listeners associate this topic with 'multiple personalities disorder' or schizophrenic behavior in general.
However, these much ridiculized forms of identity-switching are just extreme versions of what 'normal' persons of the un-cleared kind are doing many times during the course of a 'normal' day without being aware of it.
What stands out in the extreme form is the switching of entire _sets_ of identities; sets, that seem to contradict each other in a dramatic way, manifesting without apparent external motivation and in a very short time. It is this extremeness that is drawing the attention and the puzzlement of the observer.
On a smaller scale, however, a person that is being pulled over by a cop for speeding, is typically switching its identity sets nearly as fast as a 'schizophrenic' person.
And, on an even smaller scale, persons use different identities all the time when they talk to their boss at work, to their spouse at home, to a stranger they meet on the street, when speaking in front of a small group of persons, or when speaking to a large group of persons.
Moreover, most personalities are not experiencing emotions in a self-determined way. They are 'being carried away' by identities that are stuck on exactly that emotional level which is then being experienced by the person.
As with everything in this Universe, 'identities' have been created at some time and in some place. They have been created by the Being itself and can therefore be addressed via processes executed by the very Being that created it.
Since there are chains of identities, working through such sequences of identities can be called 'backtracking identities'.
There was originally no intention of presenting detailed instructions or descriptions of processes as such in this 'Little Purple Notebook Of How To Escape From This Universe' since there are already large collections of processes readily available in the public domain, notably on the Internet.
Exceptions are being
made only for processes that the author cannot find anywhere else
and for those processes that exist but which are not always recognized
as such, as it is the case with the 'Nirvana Process', for example.
In general, processes do not 'run' when the person is not ready for them. Someone reading about entity handling without having awareness of entities is not likely to restimulate case by reading about processes for handling entities.
'Backtracking identities' could potentially be run by anybody - with or without experience in running processes.
For this reason, it should be pointed out that 'processing' should be learned step-by-step, starting with easy examples that are not prone to stir up heavy stuff. The processor should be familiar with the most important remedies for problems that may occur. Just as an example, the processor should have already worked out his or her most effective 'havingness process'.
Even with experience in training as presented by the 'Transformational Processing' series of F.A. Funch or by the 'Self-Clearing Handbook' of 'The Pilot', it is a very good
idea to be sure to have access to a professional processor _before_ engaging in any adventures with exotic processes that are presented isolated from comprehensive and premeditated 'programmes' (sometimes called 'bridges').
With this in mind, here is a look at the birth of an identity:
when life is going along just fine, there is usually noThe typical case is that of a significant loss such as the death of a close friend or the failure in providing the means for livelihood, such as the loss of a job or larger amounts of money.
reason to change anything. However, if there is a dramatic
change of events, the person may be prompted to change
its approach to life in an equally dramatic way.
This repetition can
be likened to a rotating wheel: every point on the wheel will eventually
touch ground again - every identity will be manifested in this Universe
unless the circle is broken.
Since the Being loses power with every turn of the circular arrangement of identities, a better picture than the wheel would be a 'dwindling spiral'. If the power threatens to vanish completely, the Being may break out of the wheel altogether, and will then typically enter just yet another circular arrangement in a completely different paradigm.
The act of 'Escaping From This Universe' could be also formulated as 'breaking out of the wheels of existences in a self-determined and conscious way'.
In many cases, the pattern of identity shifts during a life-time _mirrors_ the shifts over lifetimes - the 'line plot'. This is a 'fractal' phenomenon in which the larger picture repeats itself in a smaller scale.
Therefore, backtracking identities (or perhaps better: identity shifts) can give important clues about the 'big picture'.
The process itself looks innocent enough:
- feel the identity currently assumed and ask for the identity that _preceded_ the current identity.
However, the previous
identity had been abandoned because of an overwhelm and may not be
strong enough to confront the specifics of the situation even now
- years or eons later.
Before examining switches, the identity prior to the previous identity should be recovered first by the same process.
But again, the switching itself is not asked for in the backtracking process itself and is better addressed as a much later step in a 'mini-programme' that covers not only the switching but also the prompting situations and, very importantly, the opposing identities that are catalyzing the synthesis of the 'brand-new' identity.
'Backtracking identities' can lead to incredible experiences in a very short of time. In especially, it will not only bring up 'past lives' in just a few iterations but it can also break through 'dwindling spirals' themselves.
Therefore, a couple of words about 'past lives' and 'evolution' seems in order.
If one looks at a point a wheel, there is an upward movement towards the top and a downwards movement towards the ground.
If the current life is on the 'upswing' part, looking back to 'past lives' would yield an 'improving' picture.
This is the illusion of evolution.
It does not consider the downswing (which is extremely difficult to confront) and it does not look at _prior_ turns of the wheel.
From this viewpoint, it is impossible to perceive _preceding_ wheels that occured within completely different paradigms.
Therefore, even persons who are able to look back to their past lives, either with a natural ability or with the help of modern 'processes', are often unable to perceive the wheels within other lifeforms.
From that perspective, life _appears_ as an evolutionary process and lifeforms as animals, for example, are not perceived as even being possible.
Ironically, many persons who are able to perceive past lives are then making the very same mistake that persons make who don't perceive any past lives at all: just because _they_ cannot perceive them, they declare them impossible altogether.
The problem of 'past life recall' is compounded by the circumstance that time itself is an illusion and a very individual and subjective perception.
A 'random' past life recall can yield a host of contradictionary information for the following reasons:
