Sometimes it feels like we are losing it. Our memory is going on vacation or we are getting confused. Lately my issue has been projecting myself into the future, and sometimes not willingly. Have you ever had those days when you think it is Friday, but it is a Tuesday?
If not, lucky you, I have been experiencing those moments quit often lately. It can be confusing thinking it is Friday when it is not that day. Imagine for a minute you are projecting yourself a month ahead. You have the knowledge of what you have not experienced yet.
This happened to me a few years ago while I was skyping my older sister and the “Little One” about my mother who was still in intensive care. It was the first of February and we were speaking about how to handle her care and anticipating any issues. I was looking as well to see who was mistreating her while the caregivers where doing their job. As I was speaking with them, I was giving the description of people around her. Who needed to be watched etc.
My older sister was letting us know they were changing the rotation for the nurses and caregiver’s personnel. I suddenly projected myself to the beginning of March. The conversation got interesting, while my older sister was preparing to go back to the hospital to speak with the head nurse and watch closely the caregivers. I was letting her know she was safe and made it successfully in her recovery in February. She was out of the woods with the caregivers and had been transferred to the Neurology Unit. This conversation lasted about 10 minutes then suddenly, my older sister started to get confused telling me she could not be transferred because she had not made the progress the doctors were expecting her to do before they could downgrade her from the intensive care to the Neurology Unit. At that moment I asked my sister what day it was. She responded to me the 1st of February at that moment I came back to February.
I started to laugh, I had to tell them I was one month ahead of them into the future. It was good for me to be able to do that. It helped us navigate February and stopped the mistreatment she was getting from some of the nurses and caregivers. I also did see her being transferred in March to Neuro. In March she was indeed transferred to Neurology with the help of my sister who is a healer. We were able to accelerate her healing.
It was interesting to be able to travel into the future for a moment. It gave me some perspective, even though it was confusing.
I have done that a few times, it can be confusing when you are telling someone during the world cup their team won that year especially when they have not played the final nor the quarter-final yet.
