Time and Forgetfulness Sequel by John Cali

posted in: Blog, channeling, Uncategorized | 13

Back in January we did a newsletter article called Time and Forgetfulness. The article was based on a conversation between Barbara Clark (whom I did not identify in the article) and one of my spirit guides. Barbara asked the guide why she forgets their conversations when she and he talk.

Since we published that article Barbara created a video of the conversation. So we wanted to share that with you today. Here it is.

    I find that when I have received a reading, I must listen to the recording and take notes, else I only recall the essence of it. Overall, I have found that when I read spiritual materials, meditate, partake in workshops, etc. that I am not able to recall many specific details. Rather, I absorb, and it becomes integrated into my being. This is quite the opposite of the other areas of my life! Reading books and being in workshops are not outside of this time element, so I not quite sure if Chief Joseph’s response entirely applies to my situation. Unless, of course, I have unconsciously moved into another state of being in those moments.

    Dear Barbara,

    dear John,

    thank you very much for this contribution. It’s reassuring to know that I’m not the only person with partial amnesia. 😉

    I always wondered why I instantly forget about the wisdom and clarity I just received from a spiritual book or your blog or from an inspiring Abraham-Clip on youtube.

    What Joseph says makes a lot of sense. However, as I believe I’m not actually receiving knowledge from spiritual source but get the chance to remember a deeper wisdom I do already know – shouldn’t the knowledge stick to me a little bit more consistantly?

    Why has our own inner truth (which should be the most natural state for us to be in) become such a mysterious secret that it seems to need years of meditation and a lot of seminars, books and retreats to obtain just a glimpse of it? Did we create it this way, tangled up in the illusion, or is it Gods ruse to maintain the game of life we all play together?

    I know I had a really genious answer to that question somewhere. But I’m afraid I forgot. 😉

    Greetings from Germany,

      Hi Annette,

      Thanks very much for your comments.

      Don’t be too hard on yourself about not remembering. We all forget, at least occasionally — because we are, after all, in human bodies. But, through our spirits, or spirit guides, we have access to all we know from our broader perspective. It’s always available to us.

      It doesn’t have to take years of meditation, lots of seminars, etc. to remember who we are. But that is the experience of many of us (including me). It’s all part of the game of life we’ve chosen to play. And, as Chief Joseph has always said, games are supposed to be fun. 🙂

        Dear Barbara,
        dear John,

        thank you very much for your kind words!

        I really appreciate your work and your effort to nudge us gently from our sleep and help us create joy-filled lucid dreams in the future. 😉

        You are right, John, I shouln’t take it too seriously. So I looked out for joy instead and found this inspiring and funny video from Moojiji on the internet:


        Warm regards,


        P.S.: Would love to listen to Chief Joseph more often. It was wonderful. Thank you.

      Thank you for your generous and humourous comment Annette. There was much laughter at the end of that but I edited it out by accident. Chief Joseph has a great sense of humour.
