Location: I live in the present moment
I have to say that I believe the Seth version about probable selves with regard to altering the past.
The best analogy I could use to describe this would be the movie "Back to the Future". After going into the past and encouraging his father to take action against the school bully, Marty's (Michael J. Fox) life is completely altered upon returning to the present. You all know this movie.
By activating a probable past event (exercising assertiveness versus passivity in a crisis moment), a different path was charted for the father. This had profound effects on the entire family's future.
In the same vein, "The Family Man" with Nicolas Cage (a great holiday-time movie if you haven't seen it) profiles a rich but single New York investment broker (Cage), who falls into a probable past and experiences what his life would have been like had he married and had a family at an earlier point in his life.
In either example, the you in the present now has changed the past and are experiencing one of the probable courses that change may have engendered in the present moment. There is no past event to erase, as you have not experienced it or have literally altered it and removed the undesirable elements/choices. The only difference here is that in the movies mentioned, the present moment personality remains aware of the changes made to the past, and can then appreciate the effects in the present moment. In reality, changing the past happens ALL THE TIME, and you can allow yourself to become more aware of it by focusing on some of the differences in remembered events between yourself and others.
This can become very apparent in meetings with people you have not seen in a long time, when you discuss the past, and find that their memory of past events is quite different from yours. The past HAS LITERALLY CHANGED for both of you.
I believe that much of what is being discussed here is more or less releasing the energy or letting go of the lingering negative impact of a past event, as opposed to actually altering the past.

Neville Goddard constantly talked about this. He called it "Revision". It is the forgiveness of sins. One example he gave was of an old woman who had lived her whole life with back pain due to a childhood injury. She used his technique to relive the moment without the accident. The pain went away.
I'm currently testing this technique to change my height. I remember a time in my late teens when I was measured and I insert the height I want into the memory.
Neville's explanation is that man is a four dimensional being. That is, his past and future exist at once. His future is pre-determined by this. Man can alter his future or past by the time travelling mechanism known as "imagination", in which he changes himself to transform the pre-determined future or past. He teaches people how to focus away from the senses and into the imagination to focus its power. Neville is a billion times clearer, more practical and more inspiring than Seth. Try him.

Manifesting A Different Unconscious Mind = Manifesting a Different Past.
One way to manifest a different past is to manifest a different unconscious mind. We've heard it said that people change from the inside, out, when changing their belief structures. This is so very true. Pick any method that works for you: visualization, affirmations, hypnosis, meditation, prayer, chanting--anything to change your habituated, unconscious mind. When you do this, you become a different person, literally. In this regard, you access a different past self, through the mechanism of consciousness, which is truly an inter-dimensional, "time machine."
Example: a woman chooses to change her habituated unconscious beliefs that chained her to a reality where she felt compelled to obtain the approval of others, perhaps, in order to believe she was worthy of self-love. This woman consistently applies the "rewrite" method of her choice, say, meditation combined with a steady diet of affirmations and visualization, which, in only four weeks time, completely rewrites her habituated unconscious thoughts on this subject matter.
She starts to notice that she is less "clingy" to other people, she "lingers" less in their presence, she no longer feels the need to worry about what others might be thinking about her, she finds herself not picking up the phone when certain people call because she no longer has the need for their approval. What this woman has done is merged with a probable past self, a version of herself that she has never "been" before, and a version she long ago chose not to become. This other version of herself is a much more "together" version; a version that is more confident and self-loving.
Though I am a man, that woman in the example, in many ways is me. I have seen remarkable results in little time, by changing unconscious, habituated beliefs. R-e-m-a-r-k-a-b-l-e. Scary remarkable. I truly shake my head in amazement and wonder what the future holds for me, now that I have stumbled onto this awesome power, the power to change one's habituated, unconscious mind to become "anyone" I want to become.
Metaphysically, what has occurred is that I have, indeed, merged with a probable self of "mine" that I never knew before, from the dimension of the "probable past." People, this happens all the time. Manifesting a different past is a quick and long-lasting method of becoming whom you want to be. Want the power of the future? Then get some power from the past! Like a spacecraft, one can "slingshot" out of his or her current orbit, by whipping backward to the past, then forward to the future! "Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads!"
