I have a curious relationship with time. As a past life regressionist, I know that it is easy to tap into the past and sometimes my clients visit the future as well. Knowing that time is like a stream flowing past, with the molecules of every moment flowing and accessible with just the dip of our net, I was drawn to The Remembering Process by Daniel Barrett. The book lays out a process to remember the future whenever we want our creative process to springboard past now to a place where it has already been completed.
Mr. Barrett is appears to be a driven creative. He has excelled as a musician, a music producer, and a software technical writer. He has collaborated with singer-songwriter Joe Vitale in The Remembering Process to illustrate a way to remember things that have not yet occurred in linear time. Impossible? Maybe. Useful technique? Perhaps so. To use this process, you have to be willing to be playful with your imagination. You must be willing to set aside your attachment to what you KNOW and consider what could be.
Mr. Barrett provides loose directions for two levels of ability. For the novice, he provides the remembering process as a useful way to employ your imagination to conceive of different possibilities. For experienced metaphysicist or one who can connect with his quantum self, he proposes a way to pull information from the future to the now to infuse the creative process with possibilities. Mr. Vitale has used this process to write several musical albums and swears by its effectiveness.
I admit that I haven’t knowingly tried this process, so I can’t report its effectiveness at either level. But I am thinking about it, and wondering when and how to give it a try. I’m a risk taker and don’t see a downside here. Whether I’m drawing from the future, my imagination, or something else, if it leads me to new and novel ideas that help me in my creative endeavors, then who cares where it came from?

This was an interesting read, and it dovetailed nicely with Quantum Creativity.
