Remembering Your Future Past

by Joe Vitale on January 26, 2011

Recently singer Daniel Barrett of the Austin band Porterdavis came to my home for my weekly pre-production session for my forthcoming album of original music. As he walked up the stairs into my recording studio area, I started congratulating him on something he hadn’t done yet.

“Dan, it was great to see your book on the New York Times bestseller list. I felt proud to know I was a part of that process. And I’m thrilled to see that you can still make time for our lessons with all the media requests and offers you’re getting since your book hit it big time. “

Dan stood at the top of my stairs and took in what I was saying. I was using his own process on him. He was letting it sink in. He knew he hadn’t written his book yet. But he also knew I was speaking from the future, and reporting back to him what had happened.

“The reviews say your book is a breakthrough in creativity and has implications for quantum realities. Your millions of readers are loving your new process. And I loved seeing you on national television talking about it all.”

Dan introduced me to his Remembering Process at a recent lesson. I was struggling with writing my first songs. Dan said, “It’s easier to remember than to create.”

“It’s easier to remember than to create.”

He invited me to start trying to remember what my first song was all about. How it sounded. The lyrics. The melody. The chords. He wasn’t asking me to create it; he was asking me to remember it.

I started to get high on this fun process. I told Dan it felt like an advanced form of Nevillizing. In my book The Attractor Factor I invited readers to “Nevillize” a goal by pretending it had already happened. It’s what Neville Goddard taught. It’s a powerful way to implant a goal into your being.

But Dan’s “remembering” process was as if you had gone way off into the future, way past the completion of the goal, and you were now trying to remember how you accomplished it.

The first time Dan taught me his method, I couldn’t stop doing it. Our entire conversation was around, “I remember that my first song had this cool guitar lick in it.”

I’d then play the guitar lick.

I’d then stop and wonder what was next in the song.

Dan would say, “What do you remember being next?”

Obviously, there was no actual song in that moment,* yet because I was trying to remember one from the future, it egged me to be creative in a playful, curious, fun way.

And yes, I did write that first song.

And yes, it has some catchy guitar licks and hypnotic lyrics.

And yes, I loved the process of creating by remembering.

Dan is writing a book about his method. He has to, since I saw it in his future and told him I remembered it being a bestseller.

Meanwhile, I asked him to explain The Remembering Process for you. Here’s what he emailed to me:

“This process is akin to visualization. The only drawback of visualization is that once you start connecting to universal time, visualizing can almost take something “out of” your field. Wanting it suggests that you might not get it. Remembering it affirms that somewhere in the time space continuum you have had this thing for years. Eons. Really, forever since those measurements are pretty arbitrary when placed next to the other model of time.”

I explained this process to singer Sarah Marie and then demonstrated it by saying, ” I remember hearing you received an advance of one million dollars for your next music CD.”

Being a quick study, Sarah smiled and said, “Actually, it was for 1.2 million dollars.”

This blog post is the very first public sharing of this new secret to attracting what you want. Dan gave me permission to share this with you.

I suggest you play with this.

Whatever your next goal or intention happens to be, imagine it’s done and you’re way past it in time.

What you do next is remember the thrill of accomplishing it.

And from there you can play with remembering how you accomplished it.

In another email, Dan added this thought to help explain the Remembering Process:

“They say that Michelangelo felt he ‘freed’ the David from the stone. Somewhere in the time/space continuum, that sculpture was complete and finished. He remembered the form, and allowed it to enter it’s new life.”

I remember how much you loved this process.

I remember that you used the process a lot, and bought Dan’s book when it came out, and loved it.


Ao Akua,


PS – Daniel is in the award-winning band Porterdavis. I remember you checked them out and loved their music, too.

Great creative process. Thanks for sharing it.


Debbie Symons January 26, 2011 at 9:05 am

Hey Joe,
I love your blogs, books, energy and joy of life…
this latest blog has to be clearest way of explaining the visualization process to me….I too had felt abit detached from it and struggled to make it real
WOW!!!! is all I can say – that is crazy and will do it that way starting NOW..
LOVE you!


Alvin-San January 26, 2011 at 1:22 pm

Hear – Hear!! —Absolutely DITTO.


Love this S**t.


PJ McClure January 26, 2011 at 9:10 am

Hi Joe,

Thanks for this post. I’ve worked with people for years on visualizing by writing the vision as a journal entry, after the day or event has already happened. They’re free to add all the fun little details you only get from a memory and is hugely helpful.

Until today though, I had never thought of it as ‘remembering.’ Brilliant!

I remember the first time I read Daniel’s book and how useful it was in helping millions of people.

Thanks again,


Nancy Landa January 26, 2011 at 9:10 am

This is great! I’ve been trying to “Nevillize” several areas in my life that I desire improvement, but would get stuck feeling like I was just “wishing” it were all true. This is a tremendous breakthrough that I will start TODAY utilizing. Thanks so much for sharing!



Anne January 26, 2011 at 9:42 am

Joe, this is so exciting! I got goosebumps when I read this post. I remember using this same technique when my book became #1 on the NYTimes bestseller list.


francy January 26, 2011 at 9:49 am

Thanks, Joe.
Yes I can remember that I was the greatest specialist on personal management of my country the Democratic Republic of Congo. And it was…Wonderful.

Thanks for the secret.


Wendy G Young January 26, 2011 at 9:52 am

I love this idea of remembering. I was just getting ready to write a script dated 1 year from today describing 2011 and how evolved in detail. Remembering adds a new dimension! Thanks!


marian January 26, 2011 at 10:00 am

Exellent! I will do it!

Thank you, Joe!



Attila January 26, 2011 at 10:01 am

Dear Joe,

The first thing I remembered when I read the title of this post was an old album of Moody Blues: Days of Future Passed .

The next: Rupert Sheldrake’s books on morphogenetic fields. The ideas are there from eternity. The more we remember them, the more people remember them, the more likely it will be manifested the way and form people remembered and resonated the most.

I remember you looked up Sheldrake in your library. :-)

Best wishes


Vicky January 26, 2011 at 10:03 am

I really loved this concept! I’ve already used it to diffuse a silly dispute and to spread some positivity this afternoon. Thank you Joe. :) PS. Remember when you came to host a very exclusive but life changing workshop for children at my beach retreat in Scotland? What an amazing weekend that was……


SecretDiary January 26, 2011 at 10:04 am

Joe, thank for the email.


Susan January 26, 2011 at 10:05 am

How cool is this! I am going to work on my memories!


Michael Smith January 26, 2011 at 10:16 am

I remember how cool it was when I first read this article! It reminded me of a word I made up – premember – as in to remember the future. I had read that Dr Stephen Hawkin said that in the physics equations there is no difference between forward time and backwards time – so why is it that we only think we remember the past but not the future? I think we *do* remember or premember the future – that is exactly what is happening when we do an attraction process. And like any muscle in the body it getting better with practice. :-)


Roy January 26, 2011 at 10:31 am

Thank You Joe! Great post and wonderful concept! :-)

I remember how my new book became international bestseller in September 2011.


Mary Madeline January 26, 2011 at 10:46 am

Dear Joe,

What a spectacular idea! Remembering the future – thank you Dan for letting Joe share. I remember reading your book, Dan, and it created amazing paradigm shifts. I remember my children book being published with a contract of 1 million dollars and it took off beyond my wildest dreams. Kids love it! =)

I love you,

Mary Madeline

Lynn Pierce January 26, 2011 at 11:12 am

When I read this it made me smile remembering (really) how I had taught a visualization process years ago where I had people look around their office and remember how it felt to create all the success they saw symbolized in the photos and awards. This process takes it to a whole other level. I love it! It gave me goose bumps as I read it. I’m going to use it right now!

Thank you for this gift.


Moe January 26, 2011 at 11:48 am

I Like It, I Love It, I Want Some MORE Of It !_! {*_*}
Oh yeah…I remember now…


charles January 26, 2011 at 11:48 am

Absolutely amazing method, you can truly create your on reality, remembering your successes,

Thanks to you and Daniel for sharing this post.



Vicki January 26, 2011 at 2:01 pm

Thank you for this gem. This process feels so right like I have been doing it forever! Thank you to both you and Dan.


Veronica, The Feng Shui Queen January 26, 2011 at 2:25 pm

WOW, Joe, you are the King of the best… ideas, thoughts and creation… keep up the good work… U D Best


Jo Ann Carey January 26, 2011 at 2:30 pm

Wow! I love the concept of remembering. I am “remembering” to use this to boost my visualizing skills. A mind blower! Thank you for sharing this. By the way, I also “remember” getting my 18 harmonicas out and reviving my friendship with them, taking them to new levels of musical pleasure.


fortune January 26, 2011 at 4:34 pm

It is an amazing revelation.


Lance January 26, 2011 at 4:43 pm

Hey!!! I remember the day I received my my new Solid-Silver Camaro 2SS!!! It was the greatest day I can remember!!! Since that day turning of my dreams into reality became a normal thing :)

Thanks a lot Joe!!!


Thomas Harless January 26, 2011 at 5:10 pm

This is a few (great) steps beyond visualization. ThanX Joe..


Caitlin Grace January 26, 2011 at 7:29 pm

I love prember! My friend and I often talk in “future truths” about events that have yet to happen. Love this blog. thanks Joe.


lorese January 26, 2011 at 9:38 pm

thanks for the memories!


JB January 26, 2011 at 10:17 pm

Wow. I remember that this blog post was the kick in the brain that I needed to finally make that shift into being a master at manifestation! I remember when I won the top tier lottery jackpot and became a multimillionaire overnight, back in early 2011. I remember when my first novel came out, sold millions of copies, and made the NY Times Bestsellers’ list. I remember returning to my recording project, finishing my songs, recording a few new ones I’d remembered along the way, and enjoying record numbers of downloads on iTunes. I remember when I suddenly came up with the innovative solution that sold the unsellable house. Ah, 2011, I remember it well.


Ram January 26, 2011 at 11:24 pm

Great way to work-out the visualizing muscle…Thx Joe


Erika L Soul January 27, 2011 at 6:39 am

I remember how much I have been really loved by people in my life . I remember the thrill of buying the home of our dreams. I remember all the countries I have travelled to attending great workshops and seminars I really loved and how much they enhanced my life. I remember seeing Braco for many live Gazing sessions and how much my life changed from these for the better, I remember the love in his Gaze and how it affected me forever.What wonderful memories are these I treasure now.


Amy January 27, 2011 at 11:49 am

Hello Joe,

This is soooo cool! You are like my all time favorite guitar player and song writer……..:)



Ahmed January 27, 2011 at 1:38 pm

Very creative process Joe…

I tend to write goals down as accomplish in a future dat, helps me stay focused.


Josh January 27, 2011 at 4:54 pm

Like when you climb a mountain. In your mind you have already climbed it. Thank You Joe!


Barb January 27, 2011 at 9:59 pm

Thank you :)

I can’t wait to play w/this!


Linda G. Cox@ Multiple Sclerosis January 28, 2011 at 7:51 am

I have been putting the Law into practice for quite a few years, yet this is a new take on it! Thank you for sharing! I love it! I have so many great memories….


Christina January 28, 2011 at 11:01 am

Oooh..I love this! What an amazing way to give that extra boost that is needed and everybody can do this. It is aslo a great way to be able to drop the ‘needy stress’ that often comes with reaching your goals. It brings the fun back when you are supposed to be enjoying the process. Thank you for this post.



Free Powerful Affirmations Audio - Claus D Jensen January 29, 2011 at 4:11 am

I just remembered how I went to your blog, Joe to read this post, and how it inspired me to remember even more great things and creations I have made! :-D

Love and hugs,


Peter January 29, 2011 at 4:17 am

I like to create new songs too, and I’ve had success with this method. You just see yourself performing it, and it’s always there.


Efrain January 29, 2011 at 5:47 am

The concept is not new. I read it for the first time in Dan Brown’s novel “Angels & Demons” some years ago. When Robert Langdon and Vittoria Vetra, the two protagonists, were held captive, Vittoria “remembered” their way out of their imprisonment.


Joe Vitale January 29, 2011 at 4:17 pm

Since we’re remembering it all, nothing can be new.


bric January 29, 2011 at 9:54 pm

Hi Joe. thank you for this inredible post.
however I really need your help on a question I’ve been struggling for since I started to use the LOA. some LOAs teachers say that, when you’re setting an intention you should include a date, a time frame to Visualize/Nevellize precisely, to be very specific. Others teach not to include a date because if you do that, you are trying to control things and your are not letting go and letting God. What do you teach?
I remember you gave me a very clear and lifechanging answer which help me understand one of my biggest question and help me manifest more easly my intentions. I was so excited and grateful. this was on Jan 30 at 1:09 pm lol (you see, I don’t know if it is a good idea to be so specific!!!)


Joe Vitale January 30, 2011 at 12:06 pm

Hi Bric. The short answer is you do whatever makes you feel best. My own approach these days is to be more open-ended. My ego might want a deadline, but the Divine may have something better in store for me. I’d rather be relaxed and enjoy each moment, trusting the intention (or something better) will manifest in its own sweet time. – joe


Sue January 30, 2011 at 9:19 pm

I’ve done something similar all my life – never knew what to call it or how to describe it – THANKS to both of you!!! (The foreign-language translations of book and album are exciting, no?!)

Observation: If one has a fairly well-developed sense of precognition, using this technique can be rather confusing… especially if you’re like me, and have an overly-developed analytical side.

For those who witness this – just go with it!!!

Does it really matter if it is “remembering” or “precognitive?”



Jillian Coleman Wheeler February 1, 2011 at 10:11 am

I love this “remembering” process. Thanks for sharing this.


Mike Robles February 1, 2011 at 7:18 pm

Great blog, Joe!

Thanks for sharing.

You were great on my television show, discussing all your books/cds/dvds! The laughter and the insights were a perfect mix!
I’m sending you a copy of the show!




Carole Ann Powell March 25, 2011 at 6:23 am

Yet again i having written my “revelational understanding” from decoding my childhood or remembering my future and using the guidance my future self gave me I then read that “technique” written by the experts! Just how much more confirmation do I need to trust my inner wisdom before i share this wisdom with as many people as want to live a life that they love ….instead of hiding this wisdom along with myself !!!!!

with love and gratitude for inspiring me to take action
Carole Ann
P.S. I’ll let you know when the book’s published
PPS oh and in the meantime … check out my blog …..its about to take flight :-)


Aim December 18, 2011 at 7:20 am

Thank you so much! I have been trying to remember reading this for a very long time and now I do. I also remember using this and it helping so much. Thank you again.


Marcio Oliveira March 8, 2012 at 9:19 pm

Hi Joe,
thanks for giving that January story for us. The subject is fascinating
and follows the thinking of Felini on tne music produceb by Nino Rota for his rxtraordinary movies as Dolce Vita and 8 1/2.
Thanks to Facebook to make this availabe to us.


Negative Ions July 30, 2012 at 2:33 am

Thank you, I’ve just been searching for info about this subject for a long time and yours is the best I have discovered till now. But, what concerning the conclusion? Are you sure in regards to the source?|What i don’t understood is in fact how you are now not actually much more smartly-favored than you might be right now. You are very intelligent.


AHMAD September 29, 2012 at 10:32 pm

Dearest JOE!
Love this process. It’s simple and mind-blowing too.
I would like to know that while running this process in our mind, it is advisable to write what we want to remember.

Pls comment.


Louis April 15, 2013 at 1:52 pm

Hi Joe,

The book was supposed to be released last February (2013),
do you have an idea when it could approximatively be released?
I’m eager to use that wonderful tool!

Louis Szabo (France)


Joe Vitale April 16, 2013 at 5:59 am

We’re hoping later this year.
