“It’s easier to remember than it is to create.”
Daniel Barrett told me that when I was struggling with writing my first songs.
I didn’t get it.
“Your future already contains the songs,” he explained. “All you need to do is remember them.”
It took me a while to grasp the fact that Daniel was on to something colossal.
As a result of working with his “Remembering Process,” I recorded my first album in record time, and six more albums after that.
Today I have seven albums for sale (seven!), and they all were more or less “remembered” into being.
Daniel and I also wrote a book to explain his process, which Hay House just published and is for sale today as a printed hardcover, Kindle ebook, or audio book.
It’s called, of course, The Remembering Process.
This elegant, mind stretching tool can help you leave boundaries and assumptions and tap into a greater source of creativity.
When I spoke about the process a few years ago, Jack Canfield, Gay Hendricks and other thought leaders and self-help authors stood and applauded.
It doesn’t matter what you need to solve, resolve, create or produce.
You can make life easier by remembering rather than creating.
I even used the method itself to write a song about the method.
It’s called “Remember” and it’s on my most recent album, Reflection.
It features a hypnotic poem, my voice, and a kundalini moving baritone saxophone.
Again, Daniel’s process is about letting go to something that already exists.
When I was in one of the many Bill Phillips fitness camps I attended, Bill asked me to describe the process to the group.
He knew that contemplating your “future self” as a person who has already accomplished what you presently struggle with, would be an easy way to tap into that future self’s answers.
You can use the future to solve the present.
Think about it.
That future you already knows the answers, because he/she already resolved the issues.
After all, he/she’s in your future, where your current issue has been resolved and is now your past.
You can do this for anything.
When Daniel and I sat in the studio and wondered what a CD cover would look like, we didn’t try to create one, we just played and wondered what it looked like from the future’s perspective.
We did our best to “remember” the cover.
I know this is a lot to grasp, and an entirely new concept to enjoy, but for more details, go get the book.
I remember you bought copies for friends, and shared it with many.
