I’ve never really been that big on meditation. If you ask me to shut my eyes and focus on the way each breath escapes my body, it will most likely leave me feeling like I can’t breathe at all. No matter how many Headspace sessions I put myself through, I just can’t seem to keep my mind focused and relaxed. 

Multiple failed attempts led me to conclude that maybe meditation just wasn’t my thing. That is, until I found one that promised to make me rich and successful. 

“Quantum Jumping,” apart from a concept you probably studied in physics, has emerged as an online subculture that claims you can find a more fulfilling existence by “shifting timelines.” With the topic “quantumjumping” gaining more than 90 million views on TikTok, the trend involves Gen Z creators using a “portal” to access an alternate dimension through visualisations and manifestations. 

Based on the belief that at any given point, we exist in multiple dimensions, this technique emphasises vivid visualisations of these different dimensions to help us hack into an ideal version of our own. The idea is that by visualising our most powerful and productive versions, we unlock a better understanding of what it takes to find success. And a shit load of money. Kinda like a mix of The Secret – the idea that you can “attract” what you want out of life – and the Marvel Multiverse.

When I heard about this meditation method on a mystical YouTube binge-watching session, I knew I had to find out more. So, I reached out to Teja Priyadarshini, a hypnotherapist and past life regressionist, who offers a module called “Quantum Jumping To Blissful Success,” and had previously hypnotised me into a different lifetime to combat my anxiety. 

“This technique allows us to access information we may already have, but that our conscious mind pushes aside,” Priyadarshini told me. She explained that this technique, when done repeatedly and consistently, comes with the powerful promise of offering wisdom to hack our way into becoming our most creative and productive selves, often through advice we usually tend to ignore. 

“Our mind often gives us these intuitive hits, but sometimes we brush them aside because we feel they are not important,” she said. “This technique revalidates what your intuition tells you, by allowing your subconscious mind to confirm that the information is valid.” 

According to Priyadarshini, the more times you’ve “jumped” or delved into this technique, the more your visualisations could manifest reality. Basically, this kind of meditation is a way more hectic version of the manifestations trend doing the rounds on TikTok and Reels.
