How to contact your future self

Many years ago I was sitting in deep meditation. My mind was clear and my body was relaxed as it would be during any good meditation session. As I sat there slowly breathing in and out, I heard a voice. The voice proceeded to give me details of a project I needed to work on, but it informed me I had to stop what I was doing presently to finish it. Then it ended the odd internal dialogue with,

“You need to meditate at a future date to tell your past self what I just told you.”

Six months go by and I had finished my project as according to “plan”. I begin my meditation session and start calling out in my mind to my past self. I then relay the same message that was given to me six months prior. I have since utilized this technique many times to contact both my past and future self.

The concept of having a dialogue with one’s future or past self is a bit perplexing to say the least. However, it can be done and can be used to great benefit of your own self. Before I begin this technique one must have a strong grasp and practice of different meditation techniques. If you do not then you may want to start here to learn the basics of meditation.

Seat yourself in the lotus position
If you cannot sit in the lotus position then you may sit with legs underneath you or simply cross-legged. Ensure that your spine is straight. If during deep meditation you have a tendency to slouch then support your back using a nearby wall.

Place your right hand over your left
Make a fist with your left hand and cover it with the right. Tilt your hands forward and open your left hand. If you have done this correctly you should now have the palms of your hands facing upward resting in your lap.

Begin your meditative breaths
Breathe in slowly through your nose and as you exhale imagine a dark heavy weight leaving your body. Continue to do this until you are relaxed and can no longer feel your body. At this point you mays see a rainbow of colors passing over your eyes. It is different for each person.

Ask to speak to your future self
This part is the most challenging. In order to have success in this area, one must be committed to contact your past self at a future date. If there is even an iota of disbelief that you will do this then talking to your future self will not work.

When the intent is there after calling out to future self you should be able to begin your dialogue. You may ask it whatever you want but remember the success of it depends upon your sincerity to speak to yourself in the past in the future. Don’t get discouraged if you do not speak to the future on your first attempt. There are any number of variables that may prevent. Just have patience and keep trying. Eventually when your future half has something important to say it will.

Contacting your future self is not always easy in fact I have done this exercise many times with no response. On others I just cant get my self to shut up. Now every time I have spoken to my future self I have at a later date contacted my past self. The reality is though there is no way to prove if you are contacting your future self or just a manifestation of your subconscious. Either way though the technique can be very beneficial to you.


  1. Thanks for sharing this technique. I’ve reached back to my past self before and it was quite an experience. I had a conversation with me at 8 years of age after a difficult experience. I could feel the ripples of love coming up from the past and I knew a shift had occurred in my younger self. This is really beneficial. I’ll now try to contact my future self and see what happens. Thanks again!

    Hey im kinda having trouble with this im not sure if I get my hands in the right way is there an easier way to place your hands like on your knees or some way cause it is dificult to know if I have them in the right position please let me know

    • You can have your hands tucked into your side with them cupped upward. This will help keep your back straight. If you can’t do that then having them rest on your knees is fine as well.

    The only reason this is possible is because there is no past or future.Everything exists simultaneously on different timelines.In the NOW.

      I love your comment/answer. It makes total sense, in a spiritual & scientific point of view. Even though in most cases those to subjects are always clashing & budding heads. But as we, the human race as a collective are slowly awakening the lines between the sciences & the spiritual are slowly being blurred.

  6. Not only have I done this but I’ve also managed to send songs from the future back to myself and had them in my possession twenty years before they were released. One song referred to the spirit of Ronald Reagan and yet he didn’t die until several years later. That song wasn’t released until 2015. I used to joke to my friends about sending it back to myself because the band didn’t even exist back then yet it wasn’t until this year that I discovered that I really did send it back to myself. So bizarre and yet so true, I have been experiencing many time anomalies.

    Hey, I’d like to know if this really works 100% because I’d like to go back 2 months into the past and talk to myself. Warn myself of something bad that may happen. Keep myself from making a huge mistake. It’s pretty much either that or I kill myself.

    How I see the future is the past gone, the future s forever determined by our actions in the present. That’s how I see it and believe me I do wish that everything exists on the same time line. The past, the present, and the future but it just doesn’t. I’m sorry but that was just your subconscious. There is no way that you can actually change the past. It’s set in stone my dears. There is no way and if there was then I’d love to check it out though and maybe communicate with my past self. No that can’t happen. I can’t say anything to my past self because my past self is in the past. Nobody can change that. Not one person can time travel through meditation.

    I’ve been doing this all my life growing up as a kid, speaking to my future 23 and 24 year old selves, and I had lost all memory of having done this until I turned 23 and began living out my interactions with my younger selves in real time. It was like living in constant Déjà vu! At 23 I had vague memories of what was going to happen and how conversations with my younger selves went word for word and it was crazy. When I was 6 I remember taking time just about everyday for an entire summer to lay down, close my eyes, and reach out to my 23 year old self and I would be sent there to her to speak with her. I even have strong memories of my appearance, and lo and behold I looked exactly the same way as I remembered at 6. The same thing would happen to me at age 15, except in this situation both my 15 and 23 year old selves were fully awake and conscious and somehow seeing mental images of one another and speaking effortlessly without even trying, and once again, I looked exactly how I remembered at 15 down to the shoes, coat , and haircut I was sporting. While it hasn’t happened for several months now, I still like to reflect on my experiences and try to make sense of them. Up until now I thought I was crazy for having these experiences, but it’s good to know that other people do this regularly as well! Will try your method and will let you know if I manage to succeed! Thanks a lot!

    Ok I’m lost I thought that you couldn’t do anything like this because you would alter your future and also you can’t go back to your past self because it wouldn’t be you can someone please explain? I want to know.

  12. I don’t believe you can consciously decide to change the past rite now. But if you do it, you are taking part in something that always happened, so you always were going to go back and have the conversation with yourself, therefore it is possible. It will lead you to the present. You cannot go back and change the present, everything you have done has lead you here already, including any time traveling. The reason is, time travel, lies outside of a timeline, therefore it did, does and always will have an effect. It is just another experience that got you to where you are now and where you will be tomorrow.

    I had the chance to *touch*this part of experience 1 month ago. It was unusable and I couldn’t understand how did this happen. I need a white teacher to guide me safely.

    Everything is now, yet ‘time travel’ is a reality. It’s simply movement on a spiral ‘time stream’ at a different speed than normal for the consciousness involved and can be physical or mental. Mental time travel(analogous to remote viewing) is easier and safer. One can also travel farther, easier on a time stream, mentally. When one contacts a ‘past’ or ‘future’ self, what does that actually mean? In my view, it either means that you are contacting a different consciousness than yourself on the past or future part of your time stream, living the same lifetime, that you have lived or likely will live, OR you are contacting a ‘null zone’, within the time stream, in which a consciousness is not currently passing through, but you are activating it by your presence. For Earth, I suggest that the interval between planes of consciousness moving forward on the spiral time stream may be 20 years, as suggested by the Philadelphia experiment, in which one man jumped overboard and landed 20 years in the ‘future’, whereas two men jumped off together and landed 40 years in the ‘future’. The structure of spiral galaxies and spiral atomic structure indicates the shape of time streams. Movement toward the black hole in the center of such a galaxy would be towards the past, I believe.
