Forgetting and Remembering
When You Forget: A Remember Plan
Remembering Who You Are can sometimes be affected by circumstances, people whom you are keeping company, and life events. It is a natural cycle to remember and forget the larger aspect of self.
I experience consciousness as a spectrum that enlarges and contracts. This expansion and contraction can be affected by life events. When you move, start a new job, get seriously ill, receive the dream job of a lifetime, you shift gears inside. When we contract we forget whole sections of self. When we remember we expand to include much more of self.
We each have a place of habit where we customarily reside a “set point.” It might be our habitual state of consciousness. We have a state that we contract to when we experience stress or fall into limited or survival thinking. We also have a more expansive place where we can see more clearly, hear our inner wisdom, and exult in being alive. That place can be accessed by doing such things as prayer, meditation, contemplation, breath work for example. In that place we thrive.
“Remembering and Forgetting.
That is the game we play.
We jump so far that we forget who we really are.”
Having a spiritual practice of daily meditation or prayer is one way to help oneself remember on an ongoing way to reach to access the more expansive self.
When we forget, the trouble often is that we forget that we even have access to a more expansive self. We forget to meditate, we forget to pray. We shrink to the circumstances through which we are navigating. We forget about being optimistic. We forget about having gratitude. We forget about our dreams. We forget about our joy. We may remember about the Law of Attraction, but only think of it as a way to explain how we are responsible for making ourselves miserable.
It is a guarantee that we will forget. So what? We will remember again. The small still voice is there always waiting and tickling the extremities of our awareness.
You can help yourself to remember by putting a remember plan in place for the Forgetting Zone.
One such remember plan might be to set up a folder on your desktop called “When I forget.” Place in it articles, quotes, pictures, links that will help you remember.
We expand and contract on a scale. The emotional scale that Abraham lists is very powerful. It is one of my methods of remembering. When I get angry after being very depressed, it is a good thing, because I am having movement. I am expanding. I am moving up the emotional scale. I am remembering.

• Positive Expectation/Belief
This scale is from Ask and It Is Given, By Abraham-Hicks. You can find it on page 119 and 297.
