Hello, I figured this would be a good point of discussion. Anyone not familiar with comics might not recognize the name of Grant Morrison, a well known comic writer.
Anyway, he's also an occultist and described creating Sigils. More importantly, he described a series of events he wrote into his comics, with a character based on himself... The events that happened in his story eventually seemed to mirror events that happened to him in real life.
I was curious, does anyone else have any similar experiences or explanations for this? How might one go about writing such things into reality on purpose?
I haven't experienced anything like that but to me it's a true explanation of creating personal reality like how shamans have been saying that it all depends on how you tell your story, if you aren't happy with your story you can rewrite it anytime.
In the book Mutants and Mystics by Jeffrey J. Kripal, the author mentions an incident in the introduction about an author who was writing a scene for his book - a burglar breaks into the main character's home and threatens the main character's wife and it really happened simultaneously in the author's home. I think such incidents are quite possible because you are so intensely involved in that moment and my guess is before arriving at that moment (eg., writing about the burglary scene) you would be playing it in your head many times and put the forces around you in action. So the stage is set up for the event to play out in the real world.
Forgot to mention earlier, but I put that book on my Wish List, thanks the for the recommendation. That said, it sounds a lot like Future Selection to me when I thought about it long enough. Have you ever heard of the term?
