Thanks very much for your kind post.
I didn't want to overburden the original post with too much, so here's the 2nd part.
It is said you can't change the past and I've heard a quote that 'not even god can change the past'. I disagree.
I believe there are gaps in a lot of things that happen and become past events. When we send out to make something happen (a spell, a prayer) if it suits, these gaps can be filled, because of the existence of 'now'. Thus it is not changing the past, rather it is changing the present as it was and still is.
In my whole life, I believe I have witnessed this on only 3 occasions; there may have been more that I didn't notice. And that is the point. Folk don't notice which is why, on first impressions, this sounds so absurd.
I named this the greylight. On each occasion there were no adverse effects and in fact everyone involved seemed to benefit in some way, but without realising the gaps in the 'past' had changed.
Very difficult to give examples, but I'll try.
Someone I knew quite well had contemplated asking for a transfer and talked himself out of it. I didn't want to see him go. A week later and his requested transfer had come through. In front of me was the returned and accepted application which I know he hadn't completed, together with my signature of authorisation, which I knew I hadn't signed.
One could argue this was an aberration on my part. Maybe, in which case I shouldn't have been doing that job. That's what I had to put it down to, particularly as he was adamant he had filled in the form.
But then I noticed another couple of events, completely unrelated where the same sort of innoccuous thing seems to have taken place. Both times I just knew something earlier had to be done to make them happen, which hadn't taken place and yet there was the end result.
It was as though somebody had filled in the gaps in the past, and nobody but me had noticed.
Because I genuinely believe this (either that or I'm totally mad), I would be interested to hear from anyone else who may have experienced this pehenomenon.
