Abraham-Hicks: The peanut butter cookies are not going to take over the counter

You understand the game of inclusion relative to some things.

Pretend that you’re standing in front of a cookie counter, and there are many kinds of cookies there -- just about every kind you’ve ever heard of is represented in this magnificent bakery.

When you stand there, inclusion comes natural to you doesn’t it. You say, ‘Well I’d like one of those and I’d like one of those.’ You don’t say, ‘Oh, look at those icky peanut butter cookies.’ You don’t say, ‘I worry that those peanut butter cookies are going to take over the counter.’ You don’t say, ‘We’d better get rid of those peanut butter cookies because you know how they spread. If we don’t nip it in the bud, they will take over.’

In other words, you don’t play the game of exclusion when you’re talking about cookies, and what we would like you to understand is it’s all about cookies.

You live in a land of contrast because contrast is essential to decision. But if you will become includers of what you do want rather than excluders of what you don’t want, you’ll purify [not contradict] your Energy. And when you begin to line up your Energy, you will be amazed at how fast the Universe responds to you.

Instant manifestations will become a daily occurrence for you when you, yourself, are not contradicting your own vibrational desires.

Abraham-Hicks, G 6-6-96

Abraham-Hicks: The way to become familiar with joy

We're asking you to trust in the well-being. In optimism there is magic. In pessimism there is nothing. In positive expectation there is thrill and success. In pessimism or awareness of what is not wanted, there is nothing.

What you're wanting to do is redefine your relationship with the Stream. We do not ask you to look at something that is black and call it white. We do not ask you to see something that is not as you want it to be and pretend that it is.

What we ask you to do is practice moving your gaze. Practice changing your perspective. Practice talking to different people. Practice going to new places. Practice sifting through the data for the things that feel like you want to feel and using those things to cause you to feel a familiar place.

In other words, we want you to feel familiar in your joy. Familiar in your positive expectation, familiar in your knowing that all is well, because this Universe will knock itself out giving you evidence of that well-being once you find that place.

Abraham-Hicks: Source is always responding. Appreciation lets it in.

... the Universe got it piece by piece by piece and you can't comprehend all of the preferences that you have honed all at once. None of you can do that. None of you could stand right here and know yourselves and express yourselves to us as clearly as we know you.

In other words, not one of you could put it into words. Source Energy KNOWS who you are. And is offering response to it at all times. You just have to find a way to let it in.

And working too hard doesn't do it. And fretting over it doesn't do it. And jumping through hoops doesn't do it. And feeling unworthy and trying to achieve worthiness doesn't do it.

What does it is anything and everything that makes you feel good when you do it. Anything and everything that feels good while you do it.

Happy memories do it. Pleasant imageries do it. Noticing lovely things where you stand do it. Taking in the splendor of one of these magnificent chandeliers and acknowledging the spectacle. The current that flows through it... and the glass that is formed...and the abundance of the glass... and someone's creative design... and someone's willingness and ability to put it there.

In other words, there's so much to behold and appreciate just on something as insignificant in the scope of your life as that chandelier.

And yet nothing could put you in a better place of allowing your lover or allowing your perfect body weight or allowing anything that you want than beholding and achieving the feeling of appreciation in doing it, you see.

Abraham-Hicks: The power of the way we flow energy

...Most of you have a very difficult time understanding the power of the way you flow energy so we are going to give you a sort of rough sketchy but very valid picture of how this works.

Have you ever played with an electrical train set, where there were lots of components to it? As you pushed your switches it sent an electrical current through the tracks which allowed the train to run. As you flipped your switches, the current would go from track to track. so that the train would follow the direction of your guidance.

This is similar ….it is rough and sketchy…… but as you flow your energy towards something you literally send energy to the tracks upon which circumstances and events will run in order to help you achieve your outcome.

The other night Esther's luggage had not arrived and she was lying in her bed stewing!! For a little while she was offering blame to the airline. They had only allowed a 45 minute connection in Newark, to transfer from one airline to another airline, and the airlines were not even in the same terminal building. So Jerry and Esther barely made it running from one plane to the other, and their baggage did not make it. When AirCanada did not have their baggage and they looked at their ticket they said, "Well there was not enough time for this baggage to be transferred. We need at least 1hour and 15 minutes to do that"

So now Esther is feeling blame towards the booking agent for not knowing that. She is blaming the airline, she is blaming the booking agent, she is blaming the people for not being efficient.

But what is really happening is, in all Esther's blaming, she has got her circuits turned to a place where nothing is aligned. So if you were watching an aerial view, you would see one truck arrive with Jerry and Esther's baggage just as the truck that needed it was leaving. You would see one man coming to look for the baggage tags and leaving right out the door just as the luggage came back into the room!!! In other words millions of near misses happening because Esther was flowing her energy in a way that was not aligning circumstances and events.

In the moment that Esther started feeling appreciation for all of those people that were out there in the middle of the night working to find ……. It was like all of the energy went back into sequence, and instead of near misses, now things were starting to fall into place. A person received a call who had just seen the bags. And he was able to call and stop the …….you see what we are getting at?

The entire Universe is responding to you based upon the way you are flowing your energy. And NOTHING is affecting your experience other than the way you are spewing your energy. It is not someone else, it is not outside circumstances, it is nothing but the way you are flowing your energy.

Abraham-Hicks, 7/24/93

I had an experience of this yesterday. I have an online course to take and felt some mild doubt and resistance. I was delaying it by trying to register online for something else, but wasn't really enthused about the new software they were using for the registration. I couldn't get it to work at all. I was surprised at the level of frustration that had built up by this time and recognized why I felt it so I worked on the feelings a bit and decided to drive to the office where they could help me register. The woman there was very nice and it turned out it was much better that I had gone in person. Some of the questions I had to answer were cryptic and I would not have made the correct choices. I left in a great mood feeling I had accomplished something that I really wanted. As I drove home I was looking at the snow still left on the ground, sparkling white in the clear, cold air. Really enjoying the moment.

The way home is past the cemetery where my mother and some other relatives are buried. I rarely even pay attention to it, but felt an impulse and turned in to say hello. I couldn't find her grave at first, but ended up driving by the headstone of a friend I had gone to school with. He had died in Vietnam and I didn't know he was buried there even though his stone was very close to the road and I must have driven past it several times before. I was so drawn to his stone and ended up going past it again after I found my mother's site. I could feel that he was the purpose of my visit. Even though it was cold, I had my window down and could hear the wind rustling the trees, the sounds of birds, and slushy snow and water sounds from my car tires. Graveyards are so peaceful to me and I've often appreciated how the earth has a chance to rest and be at peace in these places. He died in 1968 and they just had the year of his birth and death listed, not the month and day, but I was wondering if he was born or died on this date and that's why I had been drawn to be there. Someone in my class will know so I'm going to find out. I stopped where I could see his stone and spent some time listening to nature, experiencing the peacefulness, and thinking about him and appreciating him in my life. I used to live near Washington, DC and visited the Vietnam Memorial -- a powerful place. A volunteer showed me where his name was on the wall and I honored him then. And today was another experience. I'm not sure why I have been drawn to such a connection with him, but today it was part of the increasing joy I felt and was a very loving and Now experience. There was a timelessness when I was appreciating him and the peacefulness of the cemetery that was so different from the ordinary busyness of the day.

When I left I drove by a thrift store a block from the cemetery and just pulled in on a whim. They are open irregularly and I don't know their hours, but I had about 20 minutes before they closed. They were having a sale -- 50% off everything in the store. I've had the desire to do crafts and they had some small bead, needlework, and wire craft kits that I got for 25 cents each. I've been using paper towel to rest my cooking spoons on and bought an attractive, odd-shaped little dish with rose buds on it to use for a spoon rest. A little over $2 for everything, but the experience was part of the increasing feeling of well-being.

Throughout the day I'd had an increasing feeling of connection, companionship, love, and joy and that is what makes this so special to me. What is accomplished or what happens isn't the focus, it's that feeling that I desire and the experience comes out of it. It is like the feeling and the experiences are one and the same. I don't think I would even say the experience was a reflection of the feeling. It's more like it is an expression of the feeling, like the experience extruded from the feeling. I think that's why it felt like Oneness, because what I was doing felt like part of the love I was feeling.

The feeling I had was loving the Presence that I was aware of and being loved back. And through the afternoon I worked up into a feeling of adoration for that Holy Presence.

As a counselor I had been taught that children need dolls, teddy bears, or blankets because they need something to love. It is that feeling of loving that nourishes them. And I love the feeling of being loved, but also it's a time when I can just love that Holy Presence with no restrictions. I know I am accepted as I am. I know I am taken care of. I know that Presence is always there for me. I appreciate and am so grateful for all of that. But yesterday especially I could feel how free I felt to just love this Presence -- it was like I was opening to something vast and yet it is filled with awareness and life.

And that Presence is everything I see and every person I see. What ecstasy it must be to really see that as I walk around. To not even see the prickly parts of people or situations, or maybe see them, but love them anyway. To feel that same Oneness I felt yesterday as if every person and thing is an expression of the love that comes through me. I'm crying even to think about it because I know now that it is possible. And if it is possible and I desire it, it will be.

I was in college in the 60's and the loving concepts that were expressed then were ones that I had always felt. I've spent my life since I can remember looking for a way to live in that loving world that I desired and now I see that it is possible!

There's more to be said. More that is possible. We must love ourselves first and then we have that to give to others. And it seems to me now that it is more than just giving it to others, we also experience the joy of seeing that love in every person and experience we meet.

The adventure continues!

Abraham-Hicks: Enlightenment

Enlightenment means literally aligning to the Energy of my Source. And genius is only about focusing. Law of Attraction takes care of everything else. Physical humans often want to make enlightenment about finding some process and moving through the process that has been pre-described. But true enlightenment is moving to the rhythm of the internal inspiration that is coming in response to the individual desire. Enlightenment is about allowing my Connection to the Source that is me for the fulfillment of the things that I have individually defined here in my time-space-reality. That's as good as it gets!

Going with the flow

Anything that you are wanting: don't stand in the lack of it and lament that it isn't there and expect it to come to you. It cannot. Find a little piece of it, a little string of it, a little trail of it, a little clue of it - look for something about it, and focus upon that little piece, and by Law of Attraction, watch it grow!

Abraham-Hicks - 02/16/91

At the heart of every condition is a vibrational pattern -- a rather minor tweaking of vibrational patterning (sort of like the hub of a wheel) can affect tremendously out there on the peripheral of this big wheel... A little bit of tweaking on the emotion can make big differences in the way the physical manifestation occurs.

Abraham-Hicks, From the workshop G-1-29-05

We're not wanting you to ever feel bad about feeling bad. Because we know that feeling bad is always a temporary state of being. Good is ultimately all that is. You say, "Why did I ever let it feel bad?" And we say, we've been wondering the same thing.

Abraham-Hicks, workshop 11/23/02

"Every time you turn and go with the flow, you thrive a little. And this is the part that we want you to take away more than all other things put together: the moment of relief is when you drop the oars and let the stream turn you. There is a moment of relief there every single time. So if you are reaching for the relief factor, what you will begin to notice is you're dropping the oars, you're dropping the oars, you're turning in the stream, you're beginning to allow yourself to be carried to where you want to be. And we want you to know that there are delicious aspects of life, everywhere in the stream ..."

And this is the thing that we want to say to any of you who are feeling frustration or sadness, or desperation, or any negative emotion about some unfulfilled desire. We want to say, 'We thought you wanted a ride on the river'. And then you would say, 'We wanted a shorter ride on the river'. [Audience laughter.] And we would say, 'No, you want an eternal ride on the river'. And then you would say, 'But I really wanted it to not take so long from when I want something, and I float into the experience of it'. And we say, 'Then drop the oars'. Because the only time you need oars is when you're paddling against the current."

And when you're not paddling against the current, the current will carry you. And when the current carries you, it will carry you into all of the circumstances and events and experiences that you've been asking for."


And the key to relaxing and allowing well-being is to trust that the Universe is indeed loving and has my best interests at heart. To trust that all is well. To trust that not only does another door open, but it opens into a grander, more lovely answer to my desires than I could even imagine. To trust so that I don't even have a thought of holding onto the door that closed, but step out in anticipation of the new more loving experience of life that is within me and is reflected everywhere.

Abraham-Hicks: All that you desire appears in perfect timing

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, 9/27/03

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

The Universe is not responding to your reality. The Universe is responding to your perception of your reality and so when you deliberately take an emotional journey you offer a vibration that causes Law Of Attraction to respond to you differently. See how it works? It is our desire to help you to identify how you are doing emotionally or vibrationally because if you can improve the way you feel just a little bit your whole point of attraction shifts.

Abraham-Hicks, Kansas City, KS, 9/14/05

Someone has said, "the Universe has imagined it even better than you have." And we like to add to that: The Universe got all of its information about what you like from you, and it has remembered every piece of it and has put it together in perfect formation. And so, the things that are on their way to you are so much better than you even know that you want. And as you allow them, the essence all of these things that the Universe knows that you are wanting make their way to you and appear in perfect timing for you.

Chief Joseph: You are all heroes

John Cali

Last week I was reading an article about three young, successful businessmen, all multi-millionaires. Names you might recognize. The article talked about their flight in a plush private jet to Robert Redford’s Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah….

The article focused on the three young businessmen, and rightly so. But no mention was made of the pilots who flew the plane safely to Salt Lake City, and there was only a brief word about the flight attendant who catered to the passengers’ needs.

There are many public figures who capture people’s attention for various reasons. But there are also many unsung heroes behind the scenes who form the foundation without which none of us, public figures or not, could live the lives we live.

Here's Chief Joseph.

Chief Joseph

In our view, from these dimensions of Spirit, you are all heroes, whether sung or unsung. We know the great courage it took for each one of you to incarnate on your planet at this particular time. And we applaud you.

As John said, you are all connected, intertwined. You often forget that. But then a reminder will drift into your awareness, just as the Washington Post article drifted into John’s awareness.

You could not operate in your physical bodies, in your current physical lifetimes, were it not for the connectedness you all have with one another.

We are not saying you are not powerful in your own right, standing alone. You are powerful as individuals on your planet. As we’ve said many times, one of you, standing alone in isolation but fully aligned with your higher self, is far more powerful than all the confused, misdirected masses who ever marched through the pages of human history.

But, at the same time, you are all connected with each other and with us in the world of Spirit. That connection, that bond has endured through the eons, and can never be broken.

Some of you, in your current incarnations, are -- as John said -- "public figures." Most of you are not. But, public figure or not, you all rely on the being, if you will, of all that is -- of all your sisters and brothers who are physically with you now, and all who have ever existed all through eternity.

You can never know how powerfully your lives have been touched, and even transformed, by those beings who shall perhaps remain forever unknown to you. You are truly and deeply connected, one with all, all with one.

You are all heroes, whether sung or unsung.

The loving words of Chief Joseph are channeled by John Cali. Visit John's web site for more articles, information about readings, or to sign up for his newsletter, Sentinels of the Sky at

Dipping my toes in the Unity of physical and non-physical

I've had some altered state experiences the last few days that are intriguing. One of them was that I wrote a note to myself Friday about a realization about trusting that the Universe would supply my financial resources. As I wrote it I experienced an inner me writing a reminder to the outer me that was writing the note. They both felt like me.

I just had the thought that perhaps I'm getting enough in alignment with my Inner Being that I'm living from the inside out. That's been a desire of mine and I like that thought.

I channel and experience the loving presence of our non-physical friends so I'm familiar with how alive they are. And after all, we are non-physical beings expressing in this body.

It just begins to seem that the non-physical is becoming very real or close. As if whatever was blocking it isn't needed as much and I've been getting flashes of it being here and now.

I feel trust is the key. By appreciating the love and beauty that is all around, I become more comfortable with the loving non-physical world. Then it won't seem so strange or unusual to experience it.

I am here in this body and while I am I do want to explore, play, and enjoy the physical world while feeling the peaceful, loving connection of my true Self.

Maybe in the past the choices were to experience one or the other: to be in the world and enjoy it or to be a saint or nun and renounce the world. This is the time of Unity though and I think we can enjoy both. I don't want to be a nun unless it's a lot of fun and I can go skinny dipping!!!! LOL.

The process of reality creation and work

My parents and the wisdom when I grew up was that a person found a stable company to work for and stayed there until retirement. That concept has been changing rapidly for several decades and people often switch jobs many times in their life. I've been in a new job for a few weeks and already have the desire for something better. I feel I can have it, too.

The reality creation process worked in getting this job: I asked for something close to home and it's about five blocks from where I live. I wanted it to be something that I could do and I can. I wanted the owners to be pleasant people and they are. I wanted to make money to pay my bills and have extra and I do. I received what I had asked for.

Abe says that we shoot off a rocket of desire from the current platform we are standing on. So, I've been in the job a few weeks and definitely have a rocket of desire for new and better conditions.

My job is being a tax preparer...something that I would never have thought of myself doing. It not only provides money, it has been an opportunity to acquire confidence in a new way. This is the support the Universe has given me in fulfilling a deeper desire for work that I really do want to do and that is closer to my heart.

I felt a little insecure thinking about changing jobs and then I realized that if I trusted that the Universe had the next financial resource for me, then I wouldn't care what my manager thought and the job itself wouldn't be important. Being in the flow of well-being is the only thing that is important -- my flow of well-being.

It's not about whether I change jobs or stay there. It's about staying in my flow of well-being. The rest will take care of itself.

It's just interesting to experience this process in a situation that has always appeared to be in someone else's hands -- the owner or manager of the business. And where I used to feel dependent on the situation for the money to pay bills and live on.

It's actually no different than any other desire that is fulfilled for me or anyone else. It is a gift from Father Mother God and there is another gift and another and another without end. Getting a new job or however money is coming to me is no different than getting a library book that I wanted or the fulfillment of any other desire. There is no order of magnitude in the fulfilling -- Source Energy supplies them all with love.

I feel so relaxed and at peace that it feels like a glow is coming through my skin and out of my body. I have more energy and it's easier and easier to think positive thoughts. I have a card I made and lay on my keyboard where I glance at it often. It really sums it up for me:

Trust. All is well.

Abraham-Hicks: Creation is more about loving yourself

So, creation really is more about loving yourself; it’s more about feeling your worthiness; it’s more about appreciating a friend; it’s more about enjoying the sunset; it’s more about enjoying the beautiful flowers. It’s more about finding reasons to relax into Well-Being, rather than gather up your strength and valiantly go forth to achieve your tasks, and serve your cause… because your “cause” is, to be the receiver and radiator of the love and Well-Being that is You.

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.

A very fabulous day

Yesterday was a fabulous day. I was guided to fulfillment of some simple desires I had, but it was the happiness of companionship I felt in the flow and I knew I was being guided to good things -- that made it so rich. There were several things that happened and I can describe a simple one, but it's the feelings that were important -- that I could experience such appreciation and abundance in such simple things. Wonderful! And living in that kind of feeling is what I am looking for.

One example: I have been wanting to see some older comedy TV shows: the old Newhart show where he ran the inn in Vermont and a series called Wings. We can request that the library buy books or DVDs and I've been waiting until my favorite librarian was at the reference desk to request them. One of my last errands was at the library and I had a feeling she would be there. She was as well as another woman who has ordered things for me. I was giving my request to these women when the woman who actually does the purchasing came over and sat down and I've never even seen her at the library at all. We were all laughing and talking about our favorite scenes with Frasier and Newhart, she mentioned an audio book by Newhart she bought for the library that I would like. I felt treasured by their helpfulness and they were also having fun and so was I. It might sound like a small thing, but it was an abundance of fulfillment of the desire I had to see Newhart and Wings. It was a really rich experience of happiness for several people for what might seem like a small desire. That's what I feel that Abe is talking about when they say the fairies of the Universe go to work when we have a desire -- to bring us what we ask for in an abundance of ways. My whole day had been like that, one rich experience of fairly simple things one right after the other.

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, From the workshop 9-15=04-B

Today I woke up and felt a little grumpy, not wanting to be pushed. Yesterday had felt so fabulous that I wanted to repeat it so I used Abraham's placemat process and gave the grumpy feelings to the Law of Attraction Manager. After I did that I realized that today was different and to go with the flow meant following what I wanted to do Now. When I did that I relaxed and today has been very enjoyable.

In the past I've worked myself from some fairly intense unpleasant feelings to feeling pretty good. Sometimes I've done it overnight, sometimes in a matter of days. There's always movement, always change. And what I've discovered is that practicing the processes that Abe has given me makes each day lovely in it's own way. We don't get the same presents every Christmas, and the Universe brings us our desires in new and unexpected ways in this incredibly creative experience of Now we have each day.

We would begin saying, "I'm not ever going to get it done. I'm an eternally expanding Being, and I'm doing great where I am, and I'm so eager about what's coming." That's the essence of the vibration that keeps adventurous things coming, keeps you feeling always excited, stable and secure, keeps you feeling in love with life. All day, every day, count your blessings! All day, every day, make your lists of things you appreciate. And as you keep activating what is working in your life, then more pleasing things on all subjects will flow to you.

Abraham-Hicks, From the workshop 3/6/04-A

Falling in love with life...I like that phrase because that's what it feels like to me. I get that expanding feeling in my heart like I do when I feel in love. I feel such gratitude and appreciation, so safe and secure and taken care of.

And there is more!! There will always be more.

Pre-paving -- creating future experiences

As you give thought to your future--your future that may be 10 years; your future that may be 5 years; or your future that is 60 days away--you literally begin pre-paving. And then, as you move into those pre-paved moments, and as that future becomes your present, you fine-tune it by saying, This, is what I now want. And all those thoughts that you have put forth about your future, right down to this moment when you are now intending what action you want to take, will all fit together to bring you precisely that which you now want to live.

Abraham-Hicks, The Science of Deliberate Creation, A Quarterly Journal & Catalog Addendum, p. 13.

I just read this quote and I really liked it. I have this feeling of all the delightful things I have been daydreaming about coming into my experience in joyful ways. I actually pre-pave for any future time -- the next day and also when I wake up in the morning I pre-pave for the day. I can pre-pave for a meeting or for my next experience. I say what I want in a positive way and I do have the feeling I have given it to the Universe and it is taken care of. It's an especially pleasant way to begin the day.

A morning pre-paving might go something like this: It's a beautiful day. The customers that I can assist come to me in a way that gives me plenty of time to do the work. Any support I need is readily and pleasantly provided. I feel good all the way.

I can ask for anything that I want....and I do!!

It's snowing here and there is a pure, white blanket of dry, soft snow covering everything. The world is resting and so am I.

May you walk in beauty for this day and always.

Local Harvest: a resource for locally grown organic and naturally raised foods

I found a great resource for locally grown organic and naturally raised foods, Local Harvest at

They have a catalog with seeds, fibers, foods, and Community Supported Subscriptions (CSAs). The CSAs are farms that offer produce subscriptions, where buyers receive a weekly or monthly basket of produce, flowers, fruits, eggs, milk, coffee, or any sort of different farm products.

There are search engines for many features so that you can find farmers' markets, family farms, and other sources of sustainably grown food in your area, where you can buy produce, grass-fed meats, and many other goodies.

I live in a small town in the midwest and found a source in my town that I didn't know about. What a great resource!

Big companies are getting involved as more people are interested in organic and naturally raised foods. This often means a change from the small farms that have traditionally produced these foods to big farm methods. If you are interested in reading about the change in standards and how to choose the small farm ethics read Dr. Mercola's article here.

I am transformed by my willingness to allow the Oneness I desire

My experience of how reality creation works is changing in a most delightful way. I took on the challenge of tax preparation beginning in January 2007. I had the training in the fall of 2006, but the IRS rules felt overwhelming to remember. Actually doing the returns has been a wonderful learning experience: I've stepped up to confidence and opened to trust with the Universe in a new way (well, it didn't always feel wonderful going through it! I appreciate being in a much better place.)

I've used the processes I've described in my posts to work to better feelings from the fears and insecurities I experienced about whether I could handle it or whether I would know enough to do the job. It's not the type of work I would ever have thought of doing and it's been a leap of faith the whole way.

I've also been continuing my spiritual discoveries and walking my path to well-being on my free time. Last week I received two books at the same time that I had requested through interlibrary loan: The Secret of the Beloved Disciple by James Twyman and No Attachments No Aversions by Lester Levenson. They differ in the way it happened, but both books describe the journey of the authors in allowing the Oneness that is our true nature. I could hardly put them down and read them quickly. This Oneness is something I desire and yet something I have resisted because I felt I would have to sacrifice, be a nun, and I wouldn't be able to fully enjoy this life. Well, I haven't fully enjoyed this life anyway and I do want to experience the Oneness so I used a technique of being willing. To allow myself to be willing, I go back as far as I need to: For example, I am willing to be willing to be willing to allow Oneness. I say whatever I need to say to be in the place of allowing. I said I was willing after reading these books and my life has changed again. The transformation is so, so gentle, warm, and comforting.

This is what I did after being willing: When I lay down at night or whenever I feel troubled, I give whatever feelings and desires I have to God. Then I rest in an experience of being gently present with the Presence. Most of the time I feel an instant release of unpleasant feelings and often have an insight right then or shortly after. Sunday I had the desire to be at peace about this job at home and at work, and to just trust that the Universe will bring the information and support I desire to take care of the return I'm preparing. I also had the desire to really feel that God will prosper me whether I continued with the job the next day or not. I want to feel free.

After that visit with God I described I had the insight of why I felt worried about knowing everything. I felt peace and trust. For a week or more I have asked the Universe to bring me customers with returns that I know how to do and that has happened in an amazing way. Two people will walk through the door one right after the other. I get the first one which is one I know how to do and the other one is more complicated and is taken by someone else who can handle it. I've asked that I be guided to read about tax rules or practice problems that have situations I will need that day and that has happened. As a matter of fact, I had practiced something that I needed for a customer today which the manager didn't know about. He later emailed it as a tax tip to the other preparers. That is wonderful, but what I appreciate the most is feeling peaceful and calm while I'm in a situation where I am "flying by the seat of my pants" so to speak.

I truly do want this wonderful feeling of connection, peace, and joy that Abraham has been talking about. Now I can feel how it works. It is a matter of trusting that All Is Well and enjoying the change that God gives when a desire is fulfilled. Today I experienced a conversation with Source Energy where I ask, I trust, then I notice that it is given. It really is like a smooth flow through the day. I appreciate this much happier experience of my life and look forward to enjoying the journey even more.

I get a short course on how it works AGAIN from Abe (by George I think she's got it!)

I was listening to an Abe workshop CD and several things stood out for me:

Abe is saying that Source goes right to what we desire and the vibration beckons us. And what does that vibration feel like? Appreciation, gratitude.

In another place Abe says the reason we feel bad is because we are looking at the absence of what we want.

If we don't want to feel bad, Abe says to look someplace else. We say it's easier to look there and Abe says of course it is easier because the Law of Attraction (LOA) brings us other thoughts like that. It takes more effort to selectively sift (look for what feels good).

So, to feel better, notice the things we appreciate and feel gratitude for what we have asked for and have been given. When we feel bad and focus on it, LOA brings us more thoughts and situations like that so we are probably also accumulating experiences to reinforce the unpleasant feelings. It just takes a little effort to look at things that make us feel good. When we do though, the Law of Attraction brings us more of the good feeling stuff!

I think it is well worth noting that unpleasant feelings are based on the perceptions of the person experiencing it. One person could feel something unpleasant and think, "aha! This is great. This is telling me I'm off track so now I'll just adjust." And another person could feel the unpleasant feeling and think, "oh, great. I got off on the wrong side of the bed this morning." The feelings are just information. We are the interpreters of that energy of the feelings just like our eyes interpret the energy of light waves into color and form.

It's practicing this process that makes our life more fun.

Great Backyard Bird Count - Feb. 16-19

The 10th annual Great Backyard Bird Count is coming up February 16-19. Help create a mid-winter snapshot of where the birds are by counting birds at any location for at least 15 minutes on one or more of the count days.Last year, participants recorded more than 7.5 million birds of 622 species across the United States and Canada.It's a fun family thing to do and you really do make a difference for the birds - "your" birds do count and you make a difference for them when you submit their visits to your site.Get more info at
