Increase Your Luck with Revision

Revision is a technique taught by Neville Goddard in chapter three of his book, "The Law and the Promise".

"To revise the past is to re-construct it with new content. Man should daily relive the day as he wished he had lived it, revising the scenes to make them conform to his ideals. For instance, suppose today's mail brought disappointing news.  Revise the letter.  Mentally rewrite it and make it conform to the news you wish you had received.  Then, in imagination, read the revised letter over and over again and this will arouse the feeling of naturalness; and imaginal acts become facts as soon as we feel natural in the act. This is the essence of revision and revision results in repeal."

Here is how it worked for me.

About four weeks ago, I sold an item on one of the online auction websites for $99.  A week later, after receiving the item, the buyer filed a claim with the auction site stating the item was 'not as described', and demanding his money be refunded.

Knowing the item was in perfect condition when mailed, I suggested filing a damage claim with the postal service since the item was insured.  I also offered to send a brand new replacement.  The buyer refused both offers and demanded the refund.

A few days later I received an email from the auction site stating they had refunded the buyers money and had closed the case.  I was to immediately reimburse them the $99.

At this point I was feeling like a victim, angry and upset.  Definitely not what I wanted.  So, what did I want?  I grabbed a pen and wrote it down.

"I love that even though the auction co. refunded the buyer's money, I got to keep my money too! I love that the buyer is happy and I am happy.  I love that the auction co. let me keep my money. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

That felt good to me, exactly what I wanted.

I decided to do as Neville suggested and revise it. 

For the next 6 days I continued to receive emails from the auction co. demanding reimbursement of the $99.  Each day I mentally revised their letter and imagined reading an email saying we have reversed our decision and have decided in your favor, you get to keep your money.  That felt good.

I decided to reimburse the auction co. in good faith, but continued to imagine the results I wanted every time I thought of the incident.

Even though I reimbursed the $99, I continued to receive emails almost daily, threatening to turn me over to a collection agency.  

On the 12th day, I decided to call the auction co. just to make sure they knew I had already reimbursed them so they would stop threatening me.

After a nearly two hour wait on hold, their agent came on the phone and said, "Sorry for the long wait, but I've been reviewing your case and I am reversing our decision in your favor.  We are going to let the buyer keep his money and we are returning your $99.  Thank you for your business."

They promptly sent me an email just as I had been imagining and returned my $99.

Revision works!

The next time you get disappointing news, Increase Your luck with Revision! 

Until next time,
Love and Luck to you.
