Chief Joseph: Nothing is predestined

May 30, 2006

Chief Joseph

You’ve heard us say this many times over the years: Nothing is predestined. Nothing!

Predestination -- fate -- whatever you wish to label it -- has no role in this Universe you inhabit. This Universe is one of free-flowing energy, where one moment slips easily into the next, and the next, and the next . . . .

If you could see the utterly perfect and perfectly coordinated energy flow that courses through your bodies, your lives, your planet, you would never again question whether all is well or not. All is well -- always and forever.

If you could see that, you would find yourselves feeling more and more peaceful and powerful each day of your lives. You would come to a deep knowing, within your hearts, that you are loved, you are valuable, you are worthy.

You would never again doubt yourselves, the power within you, or the Universe’s absolute and perfect flow.

You would know nothing is preordained -- whether "it runs in the family" or not.

Friends, you are not doomed to experience (fill in here whatever disaster you like). You are not doomed to repeat whatever experiences your family, or any others, have had.

Your "genetics" -- your bodies -- do not condemn you to poverty, to illness, to death. Or whatever.

The only thing that "condemns" you is your own thoughts. And those thoughts, which you are totally free to choose, determine the way you flow energy through your bodies, through your relationships, through your lives.

All is well, friends. You live in a Universe of absolute abundance, of well-being. And if you experience anything other than abundance and well-being, it has nothing to do with it running in your family. It has everything to do with whether you accept and allow all the goodness the Universe has to bestow upon you.

You are loved, you are worthy, you are cared for. You are eternal. And that eternal energy of goodness and abundance flows through you every moment of your lives.

All you have to do is simply go with that flow. And that surely means you must ignore the experiences others have chosen to create. They create their experiences, and your create yours.

You have a choice here -- focus on what you want or focus on what you do not want.

It is your choice, and only yours. Why not create what you truly want?

The emotional journey and the action journey begin to dance together

You're always on your way somewhere. The key is: find a way to be happy wherever you now are on your way to where you really want to be. (We're speaking of the state of being you want.) It does not matter where you are; where you are is shifting constantly—-but you must turn your attention to where you want to go. And that's the difference between making the best of something and making the worst of something.

Abraham-Hicks, workshop 9/27/03

Well, here it is again. I read something that I've read before and now it means something different to me. We really are always "on our way" in our emotional journey. Yesterday, I felt great. This morning there are some worry thoughts so I'm on my way to better feelings.

So, this morning I'm having some thoughts that don't feel as good. I've been asking the Manager to bring me better feeling thoughts and I know they will come. I appreciate that choosing better feeling thoughts in the midst of contrast is really getting my hands in the clay as Abe says.

What doesn't feel good are some worry thoughts, so what would feel better is to trust. I can do that. There's change in my life and probably very quickly, so I'll just keep going forward in the way that feels good. I have asked that this time the change will be easy for me and I will have support. As I wrote that I thought of asking a good friend to help me to pack.

This change that is happening to me now. How do I describe it? I'm more present with what is going on whereas in the past I would have been responding to circumstances -- management by crisis. And this time I feel like I am keeping up with the change. When I feel uncomfortable, I ask the Manager for better feeling thoughts. I get those thoughts and also what I asked for. So, it's more like I'm experiencing how the Universe is supporting me right here and a now. And I'm experiencing my part it more clearly. It's very interactive. I wrote that I wanted to have support then thought about asking a friend if she could help one day. It would be so much fun to be with her.

I'm sorting through things in my home. When I touch it, if I don't feel attraction to it or really use it, I want to let it go. That's the plan. I did inner child work with a Japanese woman in Virginia and she lived in a Zen retreat. They had a few big colorful pillows on the floor, a beautiful plant or two and that was it. They had a low table with pillows on the floor to sit on for dining. The walls were colorful pastels and it was in a beautiful wooded setting. I was very impressed with how peaceful it was. I'm not going to just end up with a few pillows on the floor, but definitely less than I have now.

Gonna take a shower and get ready for work. Have a beauty of a day!

Life is a peach!

I woke up this morning with the idea that what I desire is simply to feel good. Any feelings I have of misery, unhappiness, frustration or anything I would call "bad" feelings have an element of powerlessness and disconnection. I feel abandoned here in this earth experience. And the only reason I feel abandoned is that at that time, I am looking at something that I don't like and feeling stuck or trapped in it or unhappy without whatever I desire because of it.

I've worked with Abraham's concepts for about three years now I think. I wanted prosperity and health especially, but like everyone, was shooting off rockets of desire every day about many things. I walked parallel paths. On one hand I was studying Abe's ideas and applying them. And on the other hand having experiences in the physical world (contrast) that I didn't like. I was on an emotional roller coaster ride because I had an intense desire to understand how to stay connected and feel good while I also had all those beliefs about "reality" that I had grown up with, beliefs that didn't lead to a happy existence. I did the work on my thinking that Abe suggested to feel better, but also, in the back of mind I was doing the work to feel better for a reason -- to get what I desired. That's the real carrot and stick, because we want something because we think we will feel better when we have it. If we don't understand that we control our feelings, things don't control them, then we will never have what we really, really want. And what we really want is to feel good which we have under our control!

I've come to the understanding now that what I truly want is to feel good. At the moment, my desires for something specific are dissolving. If I think about something I want in July, it feels like the future. All I need to do is ask for what I want. I don't feel the yearning for it that I was feeling, the lack of it, that feeling that it was just out of my grasp.

I feel so focused in the present. The way it is working is this: I experience contrast and have a desire. What I really want is the essence of that desire, I want the feeling that I will have when I have that desire. And more specifically, I want the feeling of connection I will have when I have what I desire. And I can have that NOW! Because I am in control of my thinking and my feelings come from my thoughts. My feelings are information from my Inner Being about whether my thoughts are of connection or not. When I'm resisting feeling connection, I don't feel good.

So the way it works for me is this: I look around me and have thoughts. When I see contrast and don't feel good. I then present myself with a desire that I think will make me feel better. But here's the really neat part -- I DON'T HAVE TO HAVE WHAT I DESIRE TO FEEL BETTER. I am in control of it. I can have the essence of what I want right here and Now. I can have those good feelings of connection and joy and happiness and freedom and every conceivable good feeling right here and right Now!!! I don't have to wait for anything what so ever. There is absolutely nothing better than that!! It's like the contrast and desire are here to give me the opportunity to work into that feeling of connection.

So, going full circle from my first sentence -- I woke up understanding that for me to feel well-being and connection is to be who I really am. The world will adjust to my new perspective and I will be fully and delightfully provided for. We are provided for in whatever way we choose to be, even when we think something is unpleasant contrast, we are actually being provided for because it is in answer to our disconnection. I think we only really enjoy our experiences when they come from our connection with who we really are. We experience that which truly delights us because it is a reflection of our connection to who we are.

One time when I was in high school, my family was camping at a woods with a fairly large creek flowing through it. My cousins and I explored up river and that experience is the essence of how I really enjoy leading my life. We waded through the shallow parts and walked the banks when water was deep. Every bend in the creek was a new experience. Water under a fallen tree carved a deep spot with big fish in it. We came around a bend and there was a large deep, still pool of water that was a red muddy color. A steep bank of gouged reddish clay rose up on the other side. It was like a new world at every turn.

It was in that same woods, maybe at that same trip, that I had a profound spiritual experience. The trees were tall and the woods deep. I was by myself, standing in a clearing with light rays shining through these huge trees and I felt like I was in a cathedral. I had a very deep experience of the God Force. I absolutely love trees and the steady life force that they radiate. They are the sentinels.

Although I've been to college and have a masters degree, I've never been a collector of information. I'm not interested in collecting things, although I enjoy what I have. It's never interested me to have a certain career path for prestige -- I was never ambitious in that way. What I really love is the experience. I love the experience of writing and communicating and contemplating ideas and touching others and connecting with like-minded souls. I love entertaining myself and others with ideas and stories and images. I love exploring the natural world. I love experiencing a fresh breath of air after a rain storm, seeing the clouds blowing across the sky, hearing and seeing birds, squirrels, ducks, rabbits, geese, cats. How playful they are, how they are individuals with their own desires, how loving they are. I love exploring the non-physical world and communicating with those loving beings. And I love the interesting friends I've had in this lifetime and experiences I've had with them.

This is who I am. This is the way I want to live my life. I send off my desire for money and home and whatever else I need and trust that it will be there. Those things are not the point of my life although I do enjoy them. I trust that I am guided exactly where I need to go and when and that I am provided for very lovingly.

I have come full circle to a way of understanding I had when I was a child. It has literally been 40 years in the wilderness, wandering around in the physical world and trying to fit in to way of thinking that didn't fit. I explored metaphysical ideas all that time and had all kinds of experiences, but it wasn't until I found Abraham's concepts that I was able to consciously understand that I have control over how I experience my life -- and that control over what I think and feel is what I have been desiring.

I've always been fairly unconventional even in conventional settings. My last job in Virginia I did corporate collections, going after 2 million dollars a month from important clients that I had to keep happy while getting them to pay their bills -- resolving legal problems, problems with our own managers or anything else that was delaying payment. The company I worked for was global in presence and very professional, but they accepted it when I used less than "professional" terms, such as saying that I looked for the harmony in the situation. Although I loved the people I worked with, I felt pain at trying to fit into that world and still be myself.

But now I have it the right way around. I am this experiencer, this explorer. This is who I really am. I'm trusting God to bring me good feeling thoughts and the experiences that I will enjoy. I'm trusting that my desires are fulfilled in more delicious ways than I could even imagine. God lays out a buffet of delight for me each day. There is plenty for everyone. The world fits to me!

I understand that when I see contrast and don't feel good, it's an opportunity for me to feel better. And the way that I will feel better is to change my thoughts and to get that delicious feeling of connection again. I love that feeling of connection -- that is the feeling of well-being.

And there is more. I can tell there is so much more to explore! I'm understanding how I control how I feel by choosing my thoughts. Now to explore the world with that understanding. Oh, the fine tuning, the opportunities to try this out with relationships, my body, money, travel, buying things, choosing what I wear, how I look, writing, success, sex. There's lots of experiences to explore.

Life is a peach waiting for me to take a big bite!

I love peaches :) :) :) :) :)

...love to you.

Abraham-Hicks: We looked forward to the contrast when we intended this life experience

I ran across an interesting Abe quote, not an official Abe quote, but one transcribed by Lois Payne. I'll include the URL of the post below. I'd like to read the complete transcript, so I'll keep looking for that.

What I'm struck by is that Abe is apparently saying that we asked for this contrast, the same contrast that we want to get rid of. Something that happened to me this morning was a relaxing into "what is." I'm at the place now where I'm saying, ok, I know something will work out somehow. I'm just going with the ideas that are coming to me and if one doesn't work, another idea pops up. I'm also affirming that the energy or assistance will be there to help me take care of everything.

I like knowing that we didn't intend to get stuck in the contrast and the reminder that Source Energy gives us unlimited and loving support. Sometimes just a change in words or perspective gives such a big "aha!" Here's the quote as posted:

Echo snips from: LOCKED ON in LIVONIA - Abraham-Hicks 6.30.01 (part 6), transcribed by Lois Payne:

[Lois explains about the Questioner: ... although she likes the idea of the "we are all part of this one big ocean of God"....now she feels that her identity of who she feels she is --- is insignificant... that she can't feel a relationship between herself and this big 'ocean' like she could between herself and her Godly man image of God that she used to have.]


ABE says: You make the transition into non-physical saying----OH YES NOW I SEE, OH NOW I UNDERSTAND, OH NOW I SEE THE BROADER PROSPECTIVE, OH NOW I GET IT.... and you are so excited and eager to go and DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN!!!


You never get it done and you can't get it wrong!!! Each new desire that you can vibrate in tune with will give birth to yet another bigger greater more powerful desire. your physical focus on the leading edge is far beyond your ability to comprehend the importance of your coming forth to expand All That Is -- this stream of well-being --this God Force---this Energy that creates worlds. You just cannot imagine the unconditionally loving non-physical appreciation and support for your willingness to have this physical focus that you are experiencing here.




OH, YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW EAGER AND EXCITED YOU ARE TO COME FORTH FROM NON-PHYSICAL ----- YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MAGNIFICENT YOU TRULY ARE. You have no idea of the perfection of the alignment of circumstances and events that are allowing you the perfect opportunity to experience EXACTLY what YOU intended to experience in this physical realm. It's the same contrast that you think you would like to rid yourself of... but folks----believe us when we say that YOU DID NOT INTEND FROM NON-PHYSICAL TO COME HERE AND GET STUCK IN THE CONTRAST AND STAY THERE.



And you can always just look around your life 'reality' to see exactly what you are vibrating. Whatever you see in your life is ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS a perfect match to your vibration. The LAW OF ATTRACTION RULES ALL THAT IS------THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE BOTH PHYSICAL AND NON-PHYSICAL. That which is like unto itself is drawn. What you think about and what you get are always a match.

As the one you call Jesus said again and again -------"have I not told you that ye too are gods?" You are NOT separate from that which you call God..... you are SAME. ohhhhhhhhhhhh folks...if you only knew....


......we are complete.

Staying Connected...what a wonderful feeling

I used the placemat process this morning, giving my resistant feelings to the Manager and asking for good feeling thoughts about the upcoming months. I played Solitaire on my computer and quickly got answers. I had insight to just be present with the way things are right now. "What is" is the contrast that ignites my desire.

The message seems to be not to get hung up on the contrast. It feels like a relief to stop pushing against it and to relax. I feel energy to do other things today when I relax. I feel the energy to take care of things that I want taken care of. I feel hopeful.

I truly have changed the way I think tremendously and it is happening so quickly and easily. I saw a niece yesterday that I haven't seen in about four weeks and we talked about the upcoming months. She commented on how much I had changed. The way I am approaching this situation this morning is a big difference from last night when I talked to her even. It is getting easier and easier to float my cork.

I played a little more Solitaire and got a feeling of trust. This is what trust is: To be in the midst of the contrast that has seemed so real to me in the past. To hold to my connection in spite of it. And to feel the connection. To really feel the connection and stay focused on it at the same time I'm perceiving the contrast which appears to be "reality." I heard Abe's voice saying, "Now you've really got your fingers in the clay." To be aware of "what is" and standing in it calmly and experiencing it and at the same time being relaxed and knowing who I really am, staying connected. This is a powerful feeling. The words "Be here now" are coming to mind also.

I love that feeling of connection. I love writing to the Manager and having the answer given to me so quickly, quickly, quickly and easily. I feel joyful. I am so thankful that this Loving Universe is the truth.
The Manager:

Think of this random Universe where everything is possible. The organizational skills belong to Law of Attraction. If you will relax and allow Law of Attraction to do the organization, the managing, then you can spend your time doing the things that please you.

Abraham-Hicks, 9/21/02

When I write a request, it may just be to the Manager, but sometimes I inlude any other non-physical presence I desire connecting with: Jesus, God Goddess All That Is, Abe, Mother Father God, my guides and teachers, my Inner Being or others. I just write my request in the way that is comforting to me and feels good.

Our non-physical Self is the Energy flowing through us

I've been thinking lately, how does manifestation work? And I've been getting answers. I just looked at an Abe quote that I have seen several times and have a new insight.

You are physically focused beings with Non-physical Energy flowing through you. And it is impossible to separate one from the other. So act - act as much as you have physical time or energy or breath within you to act. Action is a delicious way to spend life experience. Action is one of the predominant reasons you have decided to come forth and be in a physical body.

Yes, act all that you want - after you have flowed Energy towards the outcome that you seek. Let your action be inspired action, not motivated action. Motivated action is doing it because there is a lack if you don't. Motivated action is trying to overcome something. Motivated action is very often trying to perform action that someone else wants you to perform. Let all of your action be inspired action.

So how do you do that? You do that by talking about what you want and why you want it. That will bring you to the vibrational connection with who you are, and from that place you will be inspired to the how, and the who, and when, and where."


This is such a typical Abe quote and I've seen variations since I found Abe, but I feel like I've just connected the dots on this picture!

I see now why we are to flow energy first toward what we want. It's because that's how we create. We are non-physical beings expressing and focusing in the physicalness of this world. That is our life force, that is the Energy of who we are. That Energy is what creates worlds.

I have such a feeling of relief now. I really have created what I desired. I've asked and it's given to me because I flowed energy to it -- that's how it works. I don't have to be concerned at all about when I see it or how. It is mine and that's all I need to know.

And the interesting thing is it seems to me that's what I wanted to know. I wanted to remember and experience that I am connected to Source Energy and to my Inner Being. The purpose of all this creating and desiring seems to be to experience who I am flowing through me -- to experience my non-physical self flowing through me.

The things that I desired seem very unimportant compared to that connection. I feel like I would just like to float in a bubble of timeless bliss and connection. Abe says they want us to have intense desires and flow energy. I just feel like floating, Abe!

The thing is, I think I can float in bliss AND enjoy this physical experience. I suspect that is the ultimate for me -- to be centered in peace and to be in love with the sunshine and birds and squirrels and fresh air and kitties and rainbows and mustard fields and friends and movies and good books and all the good stuff.

You are an extension of Source Energy. You are one who loves, and you are one who loves to think, and you are one who loves to create, and you are one who loves to contemplate. You’re one who enjoys stimulation of thought. You’re one who enjoys choosing; you enjoy considering; you enjoy pondering; you enjoy fashioning. You enjoy putting things together. You enjoy figuring things out. You enjoy knowing. You enjoy not being sure and then becoming more sure. You enjoy the evolution of a thought. You enjoy the expansion of an idea. You enjoy the expansion of life experience. You enjoy the pleasure of being this genius focused in the most creative environment that has ever existed, for the fulfillment of things that satisfy you.

You are liquid love in physical bodies, wanting, more than life itself, because it is life itself, to adore the vessel that’s you through which this Source Energy flows. You are God. You are Source. You are creator.

You always feel good from your Source Energy perspective.

Abraham-Hicks: You came forth to create -- being on the leading edge

Never a crowd on the leading edge, is there?

Talk about the minority on the leading edge… why do you think there is never a crowd on the leading edge?

When the universe will yield to you anything that you can conjure, isn't it fun to say, "well, what can I uniquely conjure? What can I do or be or have or feel that is even better than what anybody else has ever experienced?" That`s why there's not a crowd on the leading edge ­ it's because you are always… we are all always reaching outward. We are supported by everything that has come before, and everything that is happening now is giving birth to the new desire, which is pulling us forward into that which is new. And there are so many people who are looking at what-is, that it makes them stand in the present state of being longer.

We really want to say this: that the only place that you will ever be satisfied is out there on the leading edge. You will never be happy tromping around in the "reality" that everyone agrees upon and just regurgitating it. You didn't come forth as a historian, you came forth as a creator of that which is new. And that's where all satisfaction and fulfillment is.

Abraham-Hicks on your Inner Being and the Leading Edge of Thought

You are much more than you see in these physical bodies. And that is not always easy for you to see, as you are using only your physical senses to make the valuation. But there is another part of you -- a greater, broader, and older -- that exists, right now, in the Non-physical dimension. That is a surprise to most of you. While many of you accept that you have lived before this, that there was something before this physical experience, and while many of you want to believe -- you are hoping -- that there is something beyond this physical experience, very few acknowledge that, right now, while you are physical, that there is another part of you, a greater part of you that remains in Non-physical dimension. And we are wanting you to know that, so that you may reconnect, consciously and deliberately, with that inner you. We call it your Inner Being. Some of you call it your Higher Self or your Soul. It matters not what you call it, but it is of great value for you to acknowledge that it exists, for there is wondrous guidance that is available to you through this inner you.

Abraham-Hicks, From the Abraham-Hicks Planning Calendar

You have an Inner Being within you, that has been walking with you all the days of this experience, who is aware of all that you want, and all that you are. We are wanting you to find a very real connection with that which you are -- with your broader Non-physical counterpart -- with your God-force -- with All That Is -- with your Higher Self -- with your Soul or Inner Being or whatever label you are wanting to assign it, so that you can be and do and have that which you've come forth to be, do and have.

Abraham-Hicks, 5/2/92 B

Can you feel the perpetual evolution of that which you are? In other words, you envisioned you. Now you are you. Now you summon you back through you, and extend it further. That is the reason for physical experience. You are not here to prove worthiness. You are here to extend the creation, creator, creating that you are.

Abraham-Hicks, 2/26/94

This physical experience is the leading edge of creativity. This physicalness is the application of thought to matter -- it is the fine-tuning of creation and it is essential to growth -- even from Non-physical perspective. You are providing a very valuable service to your broader Inner Being!

Abraham-Hicks, G 2/8/91

You deliberately chose these short snatches into the physical so that you could keep bringing fresh perspective into it.

Abraham-Hicks, G 10/26/91

You acknowledge that your Inner Being exists? And we say to you that your Inner Being is very old, it has lived thousands of Life experiences. Your Inner Being sits now as the culmination of all that you have lived -- very decided, very sure and very happy -- in a place that by your standards, you would say is pure ecstasy. Your role, your work is to harmonize with you, which means -- think thoughts that make you feel good -- Speak words that make you feel good.

Abraham-Hicks, 7/4/91

All-That-Is, or God, is not finished and waiting for you to catch up. You are the leading edge of thought, here seeking more: more of all that feels good to you, more of that which is fresh and gloriously uplifting. (You are, in essence, bringing heaven to earth.)

Thoughts about manifestation

I have been thinking about the nature of reality and manifesting. I keep thinking about what Bashar said about everything being here Now. Abraham says we align or attune ourselves to the vibration of what we desire. It seems to me that the way it works is that I don't bring something into manifestation or even attract it. It seems to me that I allow myself to see what I am wanting. It literally is all right here, right Now. There is only the Now. That's the idea I'm playing with now.

As Abraham says, everything that I want is because I think I will feel better in having it. The more I experience that this is true, the more I am willing to take the emotional journey to feel better each day. And as I take that journey I feel more in the present than I did when I had goals and things I was working toward "in the future." The more I pay attention to the emotional journey, the better I feel.

Abe says that when we feel good, what we desire comes to us, that the essence of our desire comes to us. So, if three people wanted the same one thing, the Universe can supply the essence of the desire to all three. And I've been thinking about that term "essence of our desire." The essence seems to me to be the feeling that I think I will have when I have the thing I desire. I'm noticing how I feel when I sit and daydream about something pleasant. The feeling of the day dream is really staying with me. I feel like I'm living it!

Say I want money because I want to feel free. And yet, there are those that have money that don't feel free and those that don't have money that feel free. The emotional journey is to change my thinking so I realize I am in control of this feeling of freedom. Freedom is truly to realize that I am in control of my experience of life...that I am in control of my thoughts and feelings.

So back to my original thought: what we desire is right here all the time. You've probably experienced it, too. Some man or woman come to your attention, someone you hadn't considered as a mate and, yet, they were there all the time. Or you thought you would never meet anyone and you meet in line getting your driver's license. Or a solution to a problem appears that was right under your nose all the time. I think all we need to do is change our thinking and we allow ourselves to see it.

What is becoming useful to me is to think of what I see, my world, as a reflection of my thoughts. Like a conjurer, I change my thoughts and what I desire appears. "We see what we want to see."

I'm thinking that we literally create our own world. There is no separation from Source. We are not here in physical and others are there in non-physical. There is only Here and Now.

And the process of creating our world is viewing contrast, what Abe calls the buffet of life. We see things we like and appreciate them. I've realized that when I see something and don't like it, I've just had an alert that I can certainly change my focus, but I can also choose better feeling thoughts. When I see the contrast, I have a desire, Source answers, and I allow myself to see the answer. To allow, I use my thinking to change my focus or I change the belief that didn't feel good when I saw the contrast. It's cumbersome to write it out, but the more I do it, the easier it becomes. I really enjoy experiencing I am in control of how I feel.

I'll end with the Abe quote for today. It seems so appropriate for my thoughts on manifestation.

It is as easy to create a castle as a button. It's just a matter of whether you're focused on a castle or a button.

Abraham-Hicks on feeling good

The most unimpressive of actions can be as fulfilling as the most impressive because Source does not feel better in one endeavor than another. It's not what you're doing, it's how you are allowing the Energy to flow through while you are doing it that makes the difference in life. That's why there are joyful gardeners and joyful surgeons, and joyful postal workers.

Abraham-Hicks, 11/23/02

You say, "May I have..." or, "I would really like to have..." or, "What I really want is..." and you can name anything under the sun that you can conjure, and the Universe calmly says, "Here it is," because it is known by All-That-Is that anything that you desire -- can be. So, "Yes, here it is."

Abraham-Hicks, 9-15-04-B

You just have to be who you are. The best you can do is be certain that you are connected to your Source Energy, and let everybody else figure it out for themselves. Some of them will adore you, some of them will hate you and none of it has anything to do with you. Choose what feels good to you and leave everybody else to choose what they want. Don't spend any time saying, "They should choose differently and they'd feel better." Instead say, "They're choosing whatever they're choosing; I'm choosing what I'm choosing, and I'm feeling good while I'm choosing it." And let that be the end of it.

Abraham-Hicks, 5/8/01-B

How do you ever get the truth to be more the way you want it to be? You've just got to start beating the drums of truth the way you want it to be -- and when you do, you will immediately feel good. And there are those who might say, "Oh, you're not facing the fact." And we say, we would never face any fact that was taking us to a place we don't want to be. There are those who believe that the world is getting more and more desperate. We are here to tell you that the world is getting better and better, and better, and that every experience you have causes you to launch rockets of desires, and Source comes in response to those rockets. And the best thing about your birth and death is that the resistant ones die and the allowing ones are born. And with this combination of contrast that keeps you launching new and new desires, it's no wonder that the Universe is expanding in this marvelous way and that life is getting better, in every day -- and in this moment -- for everyone who insists on focusing there.

Abraham-Hicks, 7/12/03-B

You are the creator of your own experience. Be easy about all of this. Life is supposed to be fun. Lighten up. Play more. Laugh more. Make more fun of more things. Hang around with people who make you laugh. Go to places that make you feel good. Make the best of every situation. Look for the positive aspects of where you live. Look for things to do. Keep your mind busy. Focus upon things that feel good. Bring many people into your life. Make more decisions in every day. Have fun with all of this. Life is supposed to be fun. You are the directors of Energy -- and your thought is the process by which you direct. There is so much love here for you. We are complete.

Abraham-Hicks, 11/2/02-B

We would like to leave you with this very clear knowing that we hold: You are just a few laughs away from letting a whole lot of good stuff in. You are just a few kisses away from letting a whole lot of good stuff in. You are just a little bit of relief away from letting a whole lot of good stuff in.

Abraham-Hicks, G-3-5-05

Abraham-Hicks: No need to justify ourselves through struggle...relax, be easy...all is well

Most people have a hard time delegating, or even wanting to delegate, because you have been justifying your existence through your hard work, and you equate success with struggle; you equate results with struggle. And so, you sort of wear your struggle like a badge of honor. And all of that is opposite of allowing the Well-being. The only thing that ever matters in success or achievement is your achieving the things that you want to achieve. So if you are setting standards and you're feeling uncomfortable about the standards that you've set, tweak the standards back a little bit. Ratchet it back a notch. Give yourself a break. Give yourself the benefit of the doubt. Lighten up. Be easier. Go slower. Take it easy. Have more fun. Love yourself more. Laugh more. Appreciate more. All is well. You can't get it wrong. You never get it done.

Abraham-Hicks, 4/20/02

I have Abraham-Hicks quotes as my home page and it always seems like the quote for the day is perfect for me. Even if I've seen them before, I've changed my perspective so I see something new each time.

The quote above is today's quote and I was just noticing how it really fits what is happening to me now. The more I change my thinking and feel better, the less "to do's" I seem to do or want. I get the basics done, but there are old things to be taken care of and I'm really not interested in spending my time on it. Like three boxes of old papers I found when I cleaned out my storage unit. I'd like to just shred them all or burn them or toss them all, but also want to make sure I pull anything that might be useful. I'd like a shredder for sure! I worked on it some this morning, but just didn't want to do it so decided to leave it for now.

I also notice I have a real desire to pare down what I own again. I've moved four times in the last three years and may move again in a month or so. How much stuff do I really need? I've thought it would be interesting to really pare down what I own to things I absolutely use or really love. I mean waaaay down.

There's a pile of stuff I have in the living room to sell on eBay. Haven't wanted to take the time to do that either. I've given away a lot of my stuff in the past each time I moved and this time wanted to sell it. I'll give this to the Manager* to take care of. I want things done, but would rather spend my time in other, more enjoyable ways.

My ex-husband and I moved from Virginia Beach to Pittsburgh in the early 70's with everything we owned in a VW Beetle, except for a box of books which we shipped on a Greyhound Bus. If it wouldn't fit in the VW, it didn't go with us. There was a nice freedom about that.

I think one thing is that I have the desire to move someplace beautiful and new. I've always wanted to go to Taos, NM..Sante Fe...that area.

Change is in the air...and it's all good.

Update 8:19 PM. Well, how quickly things manifest! I have a NotePad file that I use to make my requests to the Manager*. I have the shortcut on my desktop and any time there is something I want taken care of, I just type it out and ask the Manager to take care of it for me. So, after I wrote this blog, I told the Manager I had this stuff I wanted to get out of my living room, that I wanted money, and that I didn't really want to take the time to sell it myself. Please take care of that for me, Manager. I putzed around a little, then cleaned out the bottom drawer in my desk where I stash things to do. There was a little newspaper with an add for a store that sells items on eBay for you. I knew about them, but wanted to get all of the money when I sold something. It was clear to me after the blog and letter to the Manager that I want to do more creative things and not to spend the time it would take to get up to speed right now to sell on eBay. This store will take professional photographs, will already have an established reputation as a seller, professional templates for their pages, take care of contacting the buyer and shipping and handling. That's worth it to me. If I really want to get into eBay I can do it later. I've checked their website and it looks good, now I'll talk to them. I feel better already!

*The Manager: Think of this random Universe where everything is possible. The organizational skills belong to Law of Attraction. If you will relax and allow Law of Attraction to do the organization, the managing, then you can spend your time doing the things that please you.

Abraham-Hicks: How much of my day am I in harmony with my desires?

The things that we would be asking ourselves is, "What proportion of my day am I in vibrational harmony with my desires, which means, how much of my day am I happy, glad, eager, fulfilled, satisfied, complimentary? And what percentage of my day am I ornery, irritated, frustrated, or blaming?" And you don't have to do 100%, you don't have to do 90%, you don't have to do 80%. If you could even get around 55% feeling better, than not feeling so good -- you'd have significant movement in what begins to happen in your experience.

Abraham-Hicks, 8/11/01

"What proportion of my day am I in vibrational harmony with my desires, which means, how much of my day am I happy, glad, eager, fulfilled, satisfied, complimentary?

Boy, that part of the quote really struck me when I read it. I hadn't thought of it that way, and again, this is another reminder to me that what we are about in life is how we think and feel, not what is going on in the "outside" world.

What I mean is, I have been thinking that I wasn't feeling good because of what I was thinking or because I was focusing on something and not liking it. And that is a way to think of it in reality creation terms. But this quote gives me a different perspective and I like it. I just hadn't thought of being grumpy or complaining as choosing to not be in harmony with my desires. Of course I want what I want! I love feeling good! I love having the stuff that I want!! I enjoy the heck out of it.

So, I have a choice. I can choose to enjoy what I have now and what I know is coming to me (because we ask and Source Energy answers immediately) or I can dicker around being grumpy or out of sorts about something I'm doing or seeing and keep away the good feelings and delightful things and experiences that I want.

It puts everything in perspective for me. I'd much rather have fun. I don't really care about the things that bother me and now I've learned that if I want something different I can give my request to the Universe and let it be taken care of.

I relax, trust God, and allow God's good to come to me.

...Sounds like a plan.

Have a beauty of a day!

Rainbows, Mustard Fields, and Choosing to Feel Happy

I've just been thinking about several things today. There are conditions in the work project right now that I could certainly feel unhappy about, but the thing is, I want to feel happy no matter what. This year I've had the experience of working myself out of really intense negative feelings in less than a day. It's a very empowering feeling. In some ways I just want the good feelings to take me along for a ride and I am reminded daily that what I think and therefore what I feel is my choice!

Example: I'm sitting in a cubicle with a low wall and the fellow sitting on my right side has breath that is not pleasant to say the least. The woman on the left side of me, Susan, is a lot of fun and becoming a friend. The fellow's breath was wafting around me so I asked the Law of Attraction Manager (the LOA Manager) for help. It was so unpleasant that I didn't want to take a breath so I got some Big Red gum and offered her a piece and then him. He didn't want it.

So, I chewed a piece and then put the gum on a wrapper on my desk hoping it would smell plesant. Not enough. So then I picked up the wrapper with the chewed gum and waved it around a bit and told Susan the situation. We were laughing and talking about sending it in as a tip for Hints from Heloise. It did smell good so I stuck it to my badge which was pinned on my blouse right under my chin. I could smell it and as I focused on the smell, I didn't smell his breath any more.

Then he started humming tunelessly. I put on headphones that we use for training to block the sound and told Susan what was happening. I told her that if I go up on the roof of the building and start shooting to tell the police it was justifiable homicide. We were laughing so hard! (Yes, I could have asked him to stop humming, but it wouldn't have been nearly as funny. It doesn't usually bother me, but it was near the end of the day and I felt tired.)

I've noticed that happening there. Someone has a really irritating habit and I ask the LOA Manager for help and then I move or they do. As I experience fatigue I remind myself that it's resistance to well-being and ask for good feeling thoughts. I'm reminded to relax and that everything is going well.

I prepave the night before saying I will be alert the next day, that this is easy for me, that I am good at this, that God has (insert desire here) ready for me now. I remember Bashar's information that all is here right Now - everything. It isn't created when we desire it, our desire just focuses us on it. Bashar says when they say God is infinite, they're not kidding!

And even if I get angry or upset about something, I ask the Manager for good feeling thoughts and they come. What is happening now is I am feeling so much delicious trust. "I relax, let go and let God's good come to me." What a wonderful feeling. God, the Universe, All That Is seems like a friend and partner to me. Abraham seems like a friend to me. I have an Abraham tape in my machine, have listened to it once, and have been playing parts of it as I feel guided to do so. This morning I was guided and was in tears at how absolutely perfect the section was that was cued up to play.

And coming home from work I was saying good feeling thoughts about appreciation. The earth and sky became absolutely beautiful. We had just had a storm and I was driving into a sky of deep bluish gray clouds. Behind me the sun had come out and was illuminating the lush trees and fields. In Indiana we have fields of mustard that are the most beautiful, deep golden yellow. They shine no matter how cloudy the day and I was driving past them seeing the contrast of the intense, golden yellow, the navy blue clouds and green trees. Could there be anything else? Yes! A huge rainbow stretched over the highway! I saw this all the way home wishing I had my camera with me so I could post it for you. Oh, and I love birds and saw many geese and ducks enjoying the boggy places from the rain as I drove past.

As I drove home I was thinking about how God, Source, All That Is, loves us right here and now, just as we are. When I work to change my thoughts, it's not because I have to please God or anyone else, it's because I want to feel good.

When I found out about Abraham I wanted to feel good, but I was also still in the mindset of wanting things, too. Now, I'm understanding more and more that what I want is to feel good. And the part that goes with that is trusting that what I desire comes to me when I feel good. I don't do this work to change my thinking to get what I want, or not nearly as much now anymore. I'm learning to trust that what I need and want really is provided. It's beginning to become fun to see what each day will bring.

I've been having a day dream that I really love and today had this feeling of the essence of it. Abe says that we get the essence of what we desire and I had that feeling. And that's the thing. In these day dreams that I have, there is indeed a feeling that is the essence. How we feel really is what we want and the most important thing.

Can it really be this easy? Is all I have to do is enjoy life--be happy?!! Yes, I think it is. I do want to do work, but I don't think I have to. I have a desire to take care of myself and be successful at the things that I want to do. Success being that I do things I desire (like write) and publish so others can read it (because I have the desire to offer well-being to others with my words). I really do feel that someone could win a million dollars and live on some little island just enjoying each day. The only one we have to please is ourself.

What you are really wanting to do, as you try to empower yourself, or as you are trying to find that passion, is to just stay focused more of the time on things that make you happy — truly, that is the key!

Abraham-Hicks: The future is Now

New desire is what summons the Source and carries what is now into the future experience. But the thing that's tricky about the future experience is that the future never gets here, because the moment that it approaches -- it becomes now. Tomorrow never comes because when it gets here, it's today.

Abraham-Hicks, 10/2/04

Think about something that you want. Now think about how long you think it will take to have it.

That's how long it will take before you will allow yourself to have it.

And that's fine. There's a quote in the Abundance post below reminding us that we don't want or need everything to come to us all at once. But, if you would like it to come sooner, then just lazily look at the beliefs that indicate how long it will take. And then just kind of sneakily think about them and then just kind of adjust them a little bit at a time. It's all here right now. It's just a kind of lazy, sidling up to what you want and sitting down next to it, and holding it's hand and smiling and getting comfortable with it.

I relax, trust God, and let God's good come to me.

Open the floodgates, abundance is here Now!!

The Universe has the ability to orchestrate on your behalf. But you have got to practice being the one who receives that, you see. You can't say ~ well, it happens to them and it happens to them but it doesn't happen to me because then it won't happen to you.

You have to say ~ it happens to me. It happens to me. The best of them come to me. It happens to me.

What happens to you?

Good stuff happens to me. Good stuff happens to ME.

What do you mean?

Dollars flow to me, parking places flow to me, lovers flow to me, everything that I've ever wanted flows to ME. It happens to me and it happens on a steady basis.

Oh, you mean it all comes at once?

NO,I couldn't enjoy it, if it all came at once. I don't want to eat ALL the food for the rest of my life TODAY. I don't want to enjoy all of the lovers that will ever come to me today. I don't want all of the parking places today. I only want it to come as I am wanting it. In and out. In and out. In and out. It all comes to me, you see.

You are doing extremely well.

Abraham-Hicks, North Los Angeles, March 2003

If you were standing at Niagara Falls and someone explained to you that this is your source of abundance. Wellness flows in this amazing flow. Wellness, clarity, dollars, is all flowing to you in this Niagara Falls, and these falls are yours and yours alone to use in whatever way you are wanting in this lifetime. Oh wait, there is one other... see way over there in the distant bank, and you look way over there and you see a tiny little figure of a thing there in the mist and you are told that other one person and you share all this abundance and energy and you say "Oh! There is more than enough than either of the two of us could ever use." You would not find yourself worrying about what he did with it. You can barely see him anyway. You would not worry about what he would do with it or what he wouldn't do with it because the abundance is so enormous. Instead you would get focused on how you would utilize it, and you would begin to understand that even if you gave it every waking moment in this physical experience, you could not even begin to make the slightest difference in this stream... so finally when you get it, that the stream is enormous and eternal and ever present and always flowing, finally once you get that, then you stop worrying about what anyone else is doing with it or about it and you just develop your relationship with the stream.

Abraham-Hicks, 3/4/98

People, all the time, are saying to us, "Abraham, I want to win the lottery." Well, we know why they want to win the lottery. That is logical. We want you to win the lottery! We would like you to allow the abundance that is natural to you to flow to you. We know that money is synonymous with freedom, and that the more freedom you feel, the more your valve is open and the more of it you spread around to others, you see.

But there's not one in a million of you who has opened enough outlets for that money to flow! You say, "I want ten kajillion dollars to come to me." And we say, "What would you do with it?" And you can only tell us what you would do with a few thousand. "Oh, I'd get out of debt," you say limply. "I'd buy a new car," you say limply.

We say, "You're asking for millions and you're [only] spewing ten thousand to the borders of the universe!" In other words, there's a tremendous imbalance! You've got to BLAST those Energy dollars out there. "I'd do this. I'd do this. I'd do this! I'd do this! I'd do this! I'd do this! - I'D DO THIS!!"

And, in the identifying of what you would do, you open valves. You create Energy vortexes. You create a funnelling sensation that literally sucks, from the boundaries of the universe, circumstances and events that will satisfy your desire.

This is what creation is!

Abraham-Hicks, Phoenix, AZ - 04-26-94

open the floodgates...

It's time for you to start enjoying life.
It's time for you to start feeling about you and your life in the way we feel about you and about your life.
It's time for you to begin to reap the benefit of what your life experience and its contrast have yielded for you.
It's time for you to open the floodgates and let what's piled up right outside your door in vibrational escrow in.

And then next month, we will meet with you again and have a meeting about demanifestation!

Because so many things that you want will begin flowing in such abundance into your experience that you will find yourself wanting to be more and more defining about what you put your attention to.

Abraham-Hicks, San Francisco, 2/11/06

Each of us gets to have our own perspective from which we desire or prefer, and Source Energy answers every single one of us. There's no shortage of Source; there's no shortage of answers; there's no shortage of substance. There's no shortage of all of the stuff or non-stuff that any of us wants -- there's no shortage of it. It expands proportionately to our ability to desire it.

Abraham-Hicks, From the workshop recording 5/3/04

May you be financially blessed today. May the Universe open up and pour out a blessing, that you will not have room enough...to receive it all. May you be blessed exceedingly... abundantly...above all you could ever hope for. May you be blessed in such a way, that you will walk in a financial overflow for the rest of your days. And may you be blessed with the Divine Guidance to use this abundance for the highest good. In the name of all that is Good. Amen...So Be It... And So It Is

Being in my right mind means being in the Now

Just ran across an interesting note I made on April 30 that perhaps being in my right mind means being in the Now. It all has to do with this control thing. As long as I felt I had to control conditions or people outside of me or was responsible for others in any way, I would have some kind of worry or fear thoughts no matter what level. It might be low grade or intense, but there.

As I realize my thoughts generate my feelings and that they are under my control, I don't feel the need to control conditions or other people. I also don't feel responsible for how they feel either. I become more honest and more direct as a result. It's easier for me to make a choice about what I want to say or don't want to say.

I think the most interesting thing is that I start noticing new things that were there all the time. Now I allow myself to see them. It's like I was holding people and places frozen to match my beliefs. For example, having lived in Virginia for over 20 years and coming back to Indiana, it seems very backward in comparision. I like the peace here, but the people seemed stuck. Good people, but stuck in habit.

I'm changing my stuck views and lo and behold Indiana shows up to me in a new way. I love the earth and animals and last week read about a bio-inititive project in Reynolds, Indiana. It's a small town of 500 people and is a centerpiece of a two-year experiment to make a rural Hoosier town completely self-sufficient in energy use. In the same day I saw an article about a 63-year old man, Vic Cook, who built his own home in Pendleton, Indiana from the woods and products available on his property. Vic is cool looking, energetic man of 63 who built his home for $3,500 out of natural materials, to celebrate his love of nature. The same week, I was put on projects at work that involved scoring earth science tests. All of these things reflecting and reminding me of my love of nature, animals and the earth.

We start eternally new right now. Even if I did something I didn't like a second ago, it doesn't matter. All I have to do is decide what I want Now and go there.

I have the desire to start another blog exploring the magical, mystical earth. Look for it soon!
Vic Cook's home is called "Giant" and can be toured by reservation May 1 through mid-October in Pendleton, Indiana. (765) 778-2757 www.giantearthship.com

Feeling strange? Let yourself out of the box.

At work a few days ago I "felt strange", that vague feeling that something is different. I realized the feeling was a signal of a shift. I think in the past I would have thought something was wrong and taken some action to feel more comfortable, to get "back in the box" so to speak. Since learning and practicing principles of reality creation, I know now that every shift is a coming into alignment with and allowing that which we desire. So shifts are safe.

When I felt the discomfort and realized it was signaling a shift, the discomfort turned into excitement and a quickening of my energy. I loved knowing that something I wanted was coming and that I had a signal of it.

So, what happened? I had been asking the Universe for more money. At work, I had been shifted and shifted on projects and I got shifted and trained around noon on another project. At 4 pm they told us we could work as late as we wanted until 10:30 that night! This overtime was only offered to the 10 people that were on the project that I was put on that afternoon. I'd been up since 5 am, but this was easy for me, we stood around a lot while they moved us, had breaks, they were very kind and easy going at night...very appreciative of us staying. In other words, the U moved me right into a place where I could take advantage of what I had been asking for...the money to flow!!! Out of about 1,500 people working that day, I was one of the few on a project that had overtime right then. What fun! I felt like God was answering me directly. I felt energized by the experience, hopeful!

I've moved so much, not only changing houses, but often states since I was a baby. I've had a desire for stability because of that. Part of me is very comfortable with change. I'm used to finding a place to live, a new job, doctors, new friends, grocery stores, banks, etc. But I had certain things set up in my life to provide a kind of emotional comfort and stability that I desired. Now I'm learning I don't have to do that. It's very freeing to learn I'm in control of how I feel by changing my thinking. Before change for me was more like going from a smaller box to a much, much bigger box. I wanted plenty of room, but wanted to control what was around me. Now it's more like being in a big rubber raft in a river, the change flows through me and around me and I don't have to control it by building boxes.

May you have a beauty of a day!

The "problem" and solution exist at the same time

Notes from a few days ago: I realized that this situation is a reflection and if the hurt to be released is a reflection, so is the support. It is reflecting all the awareness and work that I've done.

Believing in realty creation, I know I am responsible for what comes to me. It's not something I've done wrong (the condition I don't like) and then I work on it and then get something I like because I've changed my vibration. It's not one or the other flopping back and forth.

The old is only showing up because I've kept it in isolation. It seemed to be from beliefs and ideas before my current time of awareness. I realize now that everything is all together at the same time. Everything that can be exists in the Universe right here and Now. Before this, I didn't realize I could choose. I felt stuck -- it was the way I thought, the way my family thought, the way I had been raised, the way "society" thinks. But now I see the problem and the solution exist at the same time and realize I have the power to choose.

As I write this I feel such strength! And feel this new life is here and now.

I relax and trust God and let God's good come to me.

Abraham-Hicks: Your power is Now

Whatever you are giving your attention to activates the same vibration within you. It becomes your point of attraction; it becomes your point of allowing. It might be a good idea for you to decide what you want to make active within your vibration.

Abraham-Hicks, 11/23/02

Everything that has ever been lived, everything that has ever been written down or documented, has been vibration first. Everything has been conjured in vibration first before it manifests. So if something has manifested and you continue to give it your attention, the fact that it is true should really hold no weight with you. The question that we would ask is not, is it true, or is it undeniable? The question that we would ask is, how does it make me feel when I focus upon it? And if the answer to the question is, it doesn't make me feel very good when I focus upon it, then we would say, true or not, it does not serve you. And if you will activate a different part of your vibration-- the "truth" will shift.

Abraham-Hicks, 3/28/02

The biggest factor is the belief factor. So, if we were standing in your physical shoes, we would decide what we want, and then we would work every day to bring ourselves into vibrational alignment with it. Find someone who's living an aspect of life that you would like, and observe them more than whatever you've been observing. And your life will shift to what you are observing, because what you are observing, in this case, is dominating your vibrational patterns. Pick the best from everything and use it as your role model, and use it as your reason to offer a vibration, and watch your life be transformed into all of that.

Abraham-Hicks, 9/24/03

You attract by your vibration. Everything in the Universe is experiencing the powerful Law of attraction...And when you are vibrating in pain, you cannot attract joy. The vibration of pain attracts only pain. The vibration of joy attracts joy, the vibration of illness attracts illness...The Law IS, and the wonderful thing is that once you understand the Law, and you are sensitive enough to feel how you are vibrating, then you have control of your experience.

Abraham-Hicks, 6/6/92-B

Your Inner Being vibrates powerfully and pointedly and, when and if you harmonize with that vibration it is like a rocket going off...your vibration raises to the point where you can have connection with who you really are. That's when you feel uplifted, that's when you feel inspired, that's when you feel elated, that's when you feel those goosebumps come, that's when it happens...things really begin to happen quickly within your experience...Your work is to more of the time deliberately think thoughts that will lead to thoughts that will lead to thoughts that will lead to that fuller connectedness with who you really are.

Abraham-Hicks, G 7/4/91

Every time you praise something, every time you appreciate something, every time you feel good about something, you are telling the Universe, "More of this, please. More of this, please." You need never again make another verbal statement of this intent, and if you were allowing your cork to float---all good things would flow to you.

Abraham-Hicks, 4/19/97

All possible "versions" of your reality already exist. In fact, they are all here - right under your nose - right Here, right Now. However, most of these "versions" are invisible to us, and they become "visible" only when we "tune" ourselves (via our beliefs), to be compatible and resonant with the frequencies of any one particular "version".

All possible version of reality already all exist! (When they say God is Infinite, they're not kidding.)

Enjoying contrast

Woke up this morning at 3 am, washed some dishes and did a few things around the house. I was thinking about the job I'm going in to in a few hours, wanting to feel better and was guided to listen to a new Abe tape I have again. The important part for me was in that first message that Abe gives. Abe talks about the process of contrast and how we focus our desires by the contrast. This is an unending process and Abe asks if we are enjoying the contrast and our unfulfilled desires, even if we don't have any idea of how they might manifest. I would usually have said "no", but this time I really heard it and had a series of understandings, one right after another.

I think the most importantant awareness is that it really is about my thinking. Even when I think it is outside of me -- job, money, even health and body -- it's really about my thinking.

Abe talked about the action journey and the emotional journey. The example they gave was of speaking to a woman with arthritis in her hips. The woman was uncomfortable in most positions and Abe told her that was her action journey. But there is an emotional journey going on right beside it. She can either feel hopeful along with her arthritis or fearful. And if she feels hopeful, she will feel better which is one benefit, and it will also get better.

I thought about many things this morning, but one was about some almost subliminal thinking I have had about myself and work (money, taking care of myself, worthiness). I can feel it, but not hear what the words are. It seems like I have always thought it so it has to be something from high school or before that I repeated or heard many times. There is a familiar feeling attached to it and it was the vibration I was sending out along with other things I thought about money, self, jobs.

So, this subliminal thinking is really the "Now" of my vibration about work and money. The action journey of the work I'm going in to today is the contrast that is focusing my desire. I wasn't enjoying it. I woke up early, asked for help, and got this reminder from Abe that the purpose of this job is for me to focus on what I want. And by following that guidance I realized I had this subliminal message that underlies my thinking about work that has been holding me in a stuck place.

I don't need to hear the words of the subliminal message, I've gotten aware of parts of it. But I certainly feel the emotions that come from the thought. It's a real "gut" feeling so it affects the solar plexus. I know enough to know that I want to change it to something that feels better! And I know that because I have asked, I will receive the answer. :) :) :)

The other part of this is that there are things in the world that seem to need to be resolved by action: if I want a different job, send out resumes. But Abe is saying, and I am coming to understand this more and more, that our journey is an emotional one. Do the work on our thinking first and the rest will follow naturally. I really feel that this is true.

This way, by doing the work on my thinking and emotions first, I feel that work that comes now will be something new that I wouldn't have thought of before. I wouldn't have thought I could do it or I wouldn't have thought it existed. I wouldn't have seen it!

I have been changing my thinking, especially the last few months and I am already experiencing the new awareness. I love the earth and animals and I just found out last weekend about some exciting bio-initiatives the state of Indiana is taking. Also, the work I'm going in to shortly has been scoring 10th grade science tests and it reminds me how much I love science. I love reading about astronomy, the earth and animals. I just like learning about it and seeing it. These are signs that what I have asked for is coming to me -- it is beginning to manifest and I am allowing myself to see it.

I have a gathering feeling of my world filling in with things I want to do rather than things I have to do and making time afterwards for things that interest me. Even though I enjoyed science and was in a biochemistry program at one time, I wasn't interested in working in a lab or teaching. I'm interested in experiences and learning. I like expanding my thinking. How exciting to think of work that would be that way for me.

This awareness this morning has given me another important acceptance of the process of creating reality: to become comfortable with contrast and to see the value of it is to let me focus more clearly on what I want. When I trust that what I ask for is given to me, then contrast is not unpleasant, it becomes a game almost. Oh boy! Let me see what new good thing I'm going to find here!!

I feel so much better now than at 3 am. Each time this happens it is powerful to experience that by changing my thinking, I change my feelings and my experience of life. I remember I have control over my experience of life and I see myself and life in a new way, right Now.

Abe says whatever we want, we want it because we think we will feel better when we have it. What a relief it is to have this reminder that how I feel isn't tied to anything in the physical world. I can enjoy what comes to me, but I don't have to have it to feel good.

Now to get ready for work and see what interesting and wonderful things this new day will bring!
