You can mentally elevate your past thoughts and actions. You can look back at the past and use your present level of love for the Creator and love for other people, and think about the choices you would now make in those past situations. Using your present knowledge and wisdom, you can imagine yourself speaking and acting at your best and your wisest in those past situations.
Reviewing the past situations and encounters with your present wisdom can enlighten your soul right now. You are also filling your subconscious mind with your present knowledge and awareness. This gives you added inner resources for the future.
