Prayer Gathering for Yellowstone Lake July 7, 2007

My friend John Cali has posted information about a prayer gathering for Yellowstone Lake, July 7, 2007. Here's John:

Yellowstone National Park is one of the USA's natural treasures. I'm blessed to be able to live at its doorstep. Although it's certainly not as pristine as it was years ago, it's still one of the most beautiful places on earth, in my (admittedly biased) opinion.

My good friend, Julie Sirovetz, plans to hold a prayer gathering in Yellowstone in July. Here's her invitation to all who'd like to attend:

On July 7, 2007 (7-7-07) a group will gather on the shores of Yellowstone Lake to honor and offer prayers for this magnificent body of water.

You may be aware that Yellowstone National Park is a Volcanic "Hot Spot" and that Yellowstone Lake has a massive pressure dome building underneath her waters.

I believe that the Earth is our Mother, and that we are co-creators with God. Therefore the power generated by our good intentions is not only felt within the earth but required in the ongoing process of our existence and elevation on this planet.

I invite anyone who feels a deep calling in your heart to take part in this important earth-work on this very powerful day to contact me for more information.

I send you many blessings of peace.

Julia in Montana, USA

Please email, or you may call (406) 222-4451 (Montana in the USA's mountain time zone)

Chief Joseph: Who you are

Chief Joseph

Most of you here today are on a conscious, deliberate path of personal and spiritual growth. You want your lives to matter. You want to be able to reach out and uplift others. You have undoubtedly asked yourselves who you are. And why you are here.

Your modern world seems crazy, chaotic, senseless much of the time. There is so much turmoil, disaster, destruction, and despair. And you often seen no purpose or sense in any of it.

But there is always a purpose to even the most senseless of human acts and experiences. And it will ultimately all make sense. Do you know why?

Because you are here. That’s why.

Even in this so-called "new age," there are relatively few humans who are really awake. Many more are waking up, and eventually all will awaken. But right now, you are a minority, albeit a growing and powerful one.

Whether you can see this clearly or not, there is a reason you are here -- there is a purpose to your physical presence on the planet at this time.

That reason, that purpose is because you are who you are. And because you are now remembering who you are.

Those of you who find yourselves often reaching for, yearning for the meaning of life are the very ones humanity has been waiting for over the eons.

You -- the reaching, yearning ones -- are the vanguard of what will be a truly new age. In your reaching, in your yearning, you are finally remembering who you are.

You are the gods and goddesses who have come to help your sisters and brothers, your planet -- and other planets -- to move forward on their paths. And to evolve into lives of higher vibration, lives of greater joy, lives of greater awareness of what it means to be God.

For you are all God/Goddess. God is always speaking and acting through you. And when you trust and know you are God, you will have come back home again.

You will hear the voice of God, always and in all ways, in the sound of your own voice.

Abraham-Hicks on how we influence others and my experience with a cord cutting technique

Nobody can get inside your head and make you think. Sometimes it feels like it, because they're clamoring in your face so loud with whatever they're saying. But you have the ability, if it is your desire, to feel good. You have the ability to withdraw from whatever thought is bothering you, get off to yourself, and reclaim your connection to Source Energy. And that is the freedom that you are looking for.

You have the ability to look here where there is not resistance. Jesus said, to turn the other cheek, and that's exactly what he was talking about. Resist not evil. Turn the other cheek -- and achieve vibrational harmony with that which feels better.

All of you have access to Source Energy! It is always within you, always radiating through you. Sometimes you are providing a shadow that doesn't let it shine, more than others, and sometimes you are letting it shine fully. But the more you are letting the fullness of who you are radiate through you, the better you feel about everything -- and the more you are contributing to the whole of things. However, in any case, you cannot get it wrong!

Abraham-Hicks, Phoenix, AZ -- 3/21/99 and Silver Springs, MD--4/11/99

I wrote about a physical decluttering I went through in April and it paved the way for a mental decluttering. I've been reading Abraham-Hicks for over three years now and have changed my thinking quite a bit. But what has come up for me in the last few weeks are old conversations from my childhood up to fairly recent times -- conversations that never were cleared, but just hung around like a 60's polyester dress in the back of the closet.

I would find myself having arguments in my own mind with the speakers, aware that it was more than slightly ridiculous to be having these conversations from years ago. At this point it's just me resisting me and didn't feel good. I attempted quite a few techniques to clear my thoughts, including talking to some of the people involved, and that didn't feel good either. I felt stuck. Ok, then. This morning I was just plain ready to let the memories and thoughts go. I'd had it. No working on them. Just get them out the door and on their way.

I was drawn to several things, including looking at a blog that was new to me, by David Wechsler. David's May 21st post described a cord cutting exercise to release negative feelings and it appealed to me. I had learned a similar technique in the 70's and 80's when I lived in Virginia Beach, but haven't used it for many years. This morning I changed from thinking my way to well-being and energetic techniques like EFT to moving my arms, visualizing, and speaking my intentions while in the shower. I used David's exercise this morning to cut the cords of my negative thinking about conversations and experiences that had happened with others in the past.

I appreciated the cord cutting exercise this morning because it was physically expressed and it can be powerful to change modalities. Give it a try by writing affirmations with your non-dominant hand or make a song and dance of them. Write a play of a dream and have friends act it out. What a difference that can make if you are in the "audience" watching your dream. Something new engages our attention and allows us to "turn the other cheek" to well-being.

My day has gotten better and better. Thank you, David, for the light that you are and for each of you who touch others lives in ways you may never know. Just know that you do.

I had three quotes that wanted to be included together in a post. I didn't intend to write anything myself, just post the quotes, but I discovered I had something to say. I started to delete the last two quotes because they didn't seem to fit with what I had written, but they insisted on being put back in this post. So, here they are. More wonderful, inspiring, loving words by Abraham-Hicks:

You are a very powerful influence. Any of you are. When you understand that well-being is the basis of your life and you begin looking for the positive aspects in everything you focus upon and you have people around you who are living life experiences and they become your object of attention and so you are observing them from your place of connection, from your place of positive expectation, they get swept up in some of that current of well-being. And unless they are really resistant to it which almost no one is really resistant to it, then they benefit from their exposure to you who knows this stuff. That's what upliftment really is. In other words, when you feel well being and nothing freaks you out, and you know that everything is all right no matter what and you see someone in trouble and you feel humorous about it, its much better for them than if you feel tragic about it. The better you feel, the better everyone around you benefits and the greater the benefit to those around you.


You are powerful beings in your influence as you are connected, and it is important to realize that -- you see, when you are praying on behalf of another, what you are really doing if you are in alignment with Source Energy is you are saying, "Source, I would like to use my vortex to focus well-being toward the fulfillment of what this being truly desires".

And so if this person has absolutely made a decision that they are no longer wanting to be in this physical experience, if their decision is they are wanting to make their transition, no amount of your focusing could alter that, because you can not step on their creative toes. So what you are doing is acting as a catalyst or adding focused energy towards the fulfillment of what they are wanting.

Purse blessing

I ran across a purse blessing from Unity, it's on a small card meant to be carried in a purse or billfold. I can remember similar sayings from many years ago not only blessing the supply and receiving for self, but blessing those that will receive abundance from me. I'm used to the more modern terminology of Abraham-Hicks and this blessing has a quaint quality that I like. And I like the reminder that money flows through us in a stream of well-being for others.

Purse Blessing

Divine love blesses this purse and keeps it abundantly filled. It is open both to give and to receive in perfect proportion and divine order.

The substance in this purse is blessed for its true use. The owner expresses wisdom, love, and good judgment in handling this money.

All those whose hands this money passes through are enriched and blessed with wisdom, love, and good judgment.

And I would add this Abraham-Hicks thought: All is well.

Abraham-Hicks: Appreciation about money

I'm doing very well in my life. I'm happy to be in this body. I'm glad I came. I like life on planet earth at this time. I'm appreciative of the environment in which I live. I like the abundance that surrounds me. I like the platform of well-being from which I get to choose. I'm sorting all of this out. I'm realizing that there’s not a rightness or a wrongness in having money or not having money, it’s just a preference that people are aligning with or not. And I like coming into vibrational alignment with my preferences about money.

What is it about having money that I like? I like the freedom that it allows me. I like the context of choices that it provides. I like the arenas that it opens to me. I like the feeling of expansiveness that it gives me. I like having all of those choices. And I adore the idea of having the flexibility to be and do and have more of those things.

I love this planet. I love the idea of exploring it. I love tasting the finest aspects of it and I love getting to choose what those are. I love this benevolent universe. I can feel that my source is calling me toward this abundance. And I can feel when I go, and I can feel when I don't. And all of that’s alright. It’s not wrong to have dollars or right to have dollars. It just feels one way to align with my own desires, and it feels another way not to align with my own desires. It’s only about that.

I'm not making a statement to the world about what they should do about dollars. I'm not condemning people who have them, or critizing people that don't have them. This is only about ME and my gap relative to this subject. And I can feel that my life has caused me to put some things in vibrational escrow that I've been holding myself apart from. But now I know what I'm doing. And things are coming in. And I'm getting the hang of this and I'm doing rather well at it. And I can feel the influx of energy. I can feel that my stream is calling and I can feel that I'm more willingly going with it. And I can feel that on many subjects I've let go of the oars. I can feel that I'm coming into alignment. I have seen the evidence of my improved vibration in many different aspects of my life. I have seen the improved vibration of my being in the aspect of money in my life. I know I'm understanding this. And I think I'm making too much of all of this. I'm happy that I understand it. I'm going to look for more reasons to feel good. And I'm going to enjoy watching the abundance flow to me.

I'm hoping to see more evidence of the abundance flowing, and I'm believing that I will. In fact I have already seen some of it. This is going to be fun. Nothing’s gone wrong here. Everything’s right on track. I'm doing just fine. I'm happy where I am. I'm pleased with what I know. I'm happy to apply what I know. I can't get it wrong. I never get it done. Isn't life fun?! Don't you love money?! Don't you love money flowing?! Isn't this a wonderful world?!

[Audience bursts into joyful, enthusiastic applause!]

Abraham-Hicks, San Francisco, CA, 2-24-07A

In this quote, Abraham is demonstrating how to think our way into the good feelings of alignment with money. They call it a rampage of appreciation. This technique can be used for anything that we desire or just for feeling good. Abraham has said that appreciation is the closest energy to Source.

Chief Joseph: Vibrations of God

John Cali

I clearly remember, as a young boy, being super-sensitive to other people and to situations. Often it caused me great pain and made me wonder what was "wrong" with me.

Many years ago, just as I was starting out on a conscious, deliberate spiritual path, I attended a "new age" seminar. The whole weekend, I was amazed by all the "secrets" I, as a little child, had suspected were true. But our Catholic faith forbid us to explore them. And my family, loving though they were, had no interest in talking about such matters.

So for many years, I was left to drift alone in a sea of doubts and fears. Finally I got the courage, as a young adult, to question the spiritual "truths" I’d been taught were "gospel" (literally). And I started a search for my truth -- a search which continues today, and will for as long as I choose to remain here.

One of the activities we did during the seminar was "muscle testing." I know this is familiar to many of you. And I also know it’s a controversial subject. If you do a search on Google, you’ll find about 280,000 links to the phrase "muscle testing."

For those of you not familiar with muscle testing, I’ll give you an example.

One form of muscle testing is taking something generally acknowledged as "bad" for you (e.g., alcohol or cigarettes) and holding it next to your heart. You extend your other arm out to your side, and have someone push down on the arm with only two fingers while you resist the downward pressure. Often, you are unable to resist the pressure and your arm will simply go down.

You can also do the opposite. Take something acknowledged as "good" for you. For example, an organic banana. Do the same test and you’ll often find you can resist the downward pressure.

The point of the exercise was everything has a unique vibration. Your body is sensitive to vibrations. Some vibrations weaken your body, and others strengthen it.

When I say "everything" has a vibration, I mean literally every thing vibrates in its own special way.

Your thoughts have a vibration. Your relationships have a vibration. Your physical bodies have a vibration. Your pets have a vibration. Your homes have a vibration. Your cars have a vibration. Your household plants have a vibration. Literally everything and everyone on the planet, and in the entire Universe, have a vibration.

Here’s Chief Joseph.

Chief Joseph

You live in a vibrational universe. Every thing that exists -- plant, animal, human, rock, etc. -- has its own unique vibration. Some of you, like John when he was younger (and like he still is), are particularly sensitive to vibrations.

Many more of you are now becoming so sensitive to the vibrations and energies coming into your planet today, you sometimes think you must be losing your minds. You may be wondering what’s wrong with you.

Friends, there is nothing wrong with you. Your increasing sensitivity is a very good thing. If you pay attention to it, you will find your powers of discernment increasing. You will more often find yourselves instinctively and instantly knowing all kinds of things you were never consciously aware of before.

Your tastes and preferences will change. And that applies to every aspect of your lives -- the food you eat, the clothes you wear, the relationships you have, the work you do, the places you live. And so on.

What’s happening here -- to repeat ourselves -- is a very good thing, even though you may sometimes feel frustrated and fearful.

A huge shift in the energy of your planet is happening right now. A similar shift is happening in every aspect of your lives, individually and collectively. These are shifts of historic proportions, like none other that have occurred in all of human history.

Consider these shifts great gifts from the Universe. As you become more sensitive to all the shifting vibrations -- and, more importantly, as you pay attention to how you feel -- you will find your lives becoming more joyful, more peaceful, more abundant. You will quickly know, when faced with changes and opportunities, what is good and right for you. And what is not.

Trust your feelings, your sensitivities. Remember everything has a vibration, as John said. Some vibrations will feel good to you. Some will not. Trust your own inner guidance, always and above all.

You live in exciting times. There has never been a better time to be physically alive on your planet. See these changing times as an exciting opportunity to fully remember who you are and why you are here.

Rejoice in the changes. Rejoice in yourselves. Appreciate yourselves more, as you come to the full realization of your divinity. You are God. A playful God. Your higher selves know that.

Have fun. Play more. Love more. Life is not serious. It’s supposed to be fun!

All the changes you’re experiencing are designed to bring you closer and closer to home, to the home within you. Back to your own heart. Back to where you came from -- to God.

Since 1992, John Cali has been communicating with a non-physical entity called Joseph. In one of his many physical lifetimes, this spirit was incarnated as the legendary Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce tribe in what is now the state of Oregon in the northwestern USA. These messages are a blend of information from Joseph, other spirits in the "Joseph group," and John.

Being in alignment is being who you truly are. And Abraham-Hicks on creating a joyful journey.

One time I woke up to see a non-physical being curled up right above me. I don't know if it was my Inner Being or some other non-physical friend or teacher, but I remember that positive, joy-filled, wise, aware look on it's face (as well as a moment of happy surprise to be looking into my eyes). Whenever I think of the energy I am wanting to align with, I remember that experience. I was thinking how I could offer it to you and I would say to look into the eyes of a very young and happy baby.

That open, trusting, eager self who looks back at you from that baby's eyes is who I think we really are. We are non-physical beings having a physical experience. So, when Abraham talks about vibration and alignment and getting happy, that is what I feel they mean: allowing myself to come home to that positive, open, wise, accepting part of me. Since it is the truth of who we all are, there is assistance and power that comes naturally from being our true selves because we are literally joining with the Energy that creates worlds! Those urges to act and passions and interests we all have is this wonderful Self wanting to express itself. The more we come into alignment with our true self, the more we are using our strength for us instead of going against it. That is flowing energy.

When you read the Abe quotes below, think of vibration and alignment as being your true self and see how the quotes sound to you. The Law of Attraction is a given, just like gravity is in our earth experience. We don't have to make ourselves stick to the floor, it happens naturally. We also don't have to reel in our desires or work at them, unless it gives us joy to do so. The Universe and the Law of Attraction takes care of bringing it to us. Being a hammock-on-the-beach type of reality creationist, I just love how much fun Abe encourages us to have with all of this. Enough of me though, here's Abe:

We will state the law of creation in simple terms here: want it, and allow it to be -- and it is. Perhaps even a better term than "want," would be, "intend," for in the intending, there is wanting, certainly, and also an expectation for the receiving. "Intend" is a broader, more inclusive word. We will restate the Law of creation: Intend it, and allow it -- and it is.

Abraham-Hicks, From the book: A New Beginning I

"Truth or Untruth, you say TRUTH.
Feel Good or Feel Bad, you say FEEL GOOD.
Feel Good or Truth, you say 'eechkiiiieeeeeaieiiiikkkkkkk...
I want to say FEEL GOOD but what I really mean is truth because I have been commanded & demanded & encouraged and programmed to face reality,' and we say *BUT YOU LEARNED TO FACE REALITY BEFORE YOU KNEW YOU WERE CREATING REALITY!*

"Now that's worth thinking about! You were taught to face reality before you knew you were creating reality and now you know you're creating reality -- You don't want to face reality unless it's a reality you want to create.

"And so, you say -- and we want to make that distinction between reality and virtual reality: Virtual Reality is the pure one. Reality is MANGLED with historical things that do not please you."

Abraham-Hicks, Albany, NY, 10/1/02

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

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

We want to speak about freedom: This is a Vibrational Universe. The only Source that flows is the Source of Well-Being. And, physical and Non-physical, we are all free to allow that Well-Being to flow to us and through us, or we can pinch it off. It is our call--every time...

Abraham-Hicks, 2/28/04-B

The more in vibrational sync you are with who you really are, then the more you are allowing only those things that you're wanting, and the less resistance there is. And the less resistance there is, then the less delay between the idea of the thought and the receiving of it.

Abraham-Hicks, 12/1/01

The only thing that makes the difference in the way you feel right now is the thought that you are thinking right now. It doesn't matter how much money you've got; there are joyful people with no money, and there are unhappy people with lots of money. How you feel is about how you are allowing the Source that is You to flow. So when we talk about the Art of Allowing, we're talking about the art of living; about the art of thriving; about the art of clarity. We're talking about the art of being who you really are.

Abraham-Hicks, 7/20/02

There is no reason to worry about your thoughts, for they are not like a loaded gun that wreak powerful and instantaneous destruction. For you have plenty of time - as soon as you become aware of negative feelings - to begin to choose other less-resistant thoughts and choose a more desired outcome.


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, 1-29-05

We want you to utilize the enormous Nonphysical staff more efficiently. We want you to recognize that it is there for you, and we want you to make your statements of desire, make your demands to the Universe, from a place of absolute knowing that you deserve it and that it is there for you. Most of you have not been making demands because in your humility you do not think you should. We’re not trying to guide you towards mansions or toward opulence. We’re not trying to guide you toward anything except knowledge that the Stream is there for you to do with it whatever you choose, you see.


You have been oriented that you must pay a price in order to get somewhere, and in the process, you've come to believe that getting there must be really important, therefore, it must be your purpose. And we say, but if you're not getting to joy, then you've gotten nowhere. Joy is really where you're going.

Abraham-Hicks, 12/13/03

People will say, "Well, I have to work on my goals," or, "I have to work on my visualization." And we want you to think more about holding the vision because it is pleasurable to hold the vision, not because you're trying to make the vision work in order to get to some place that you're not now standing. "How much should I work?" We would say, work in the sense of joyously moving forward.

Abraham-Hicks, 8/13/01

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

The more you find something to appreciate, the better it feels. The better it feels, the more you want to do it. The more you do it, the better it feels. The better it feels...the more you want to do it! The Law of Attraction assists with the powerful momentum of these positive thoughts and feelings until, with very little time and effort, you will find your heart singing in your joyous alignment with who you really are! And, in this wonderful-feeling vibration where no resistance exists, you will be in an exaggerated state of ALLOWING -- you will be in the vibrational state where the things that you desire can flow easily into your experience. The better it gets, the better it gets!

Abraham-Hicks, Ask and It Is Given, pp. 143-144

Daydream for the pleasure of doing it -- not to get whatever it is that you are wanting, but just for the deliciousness of watching how far your imagination can go, to what heights and joys you are capable of. Do this every day, in as many moments as you remember to do it, and you will be amazed at how quickly your life and your perceptions of your life will change. Dream for the deliciousness of dreaming.

Abraham-Hicks, Rye, NY, 1997

Once you envision something and the Universal forces come into play to help you in the creation of it, there's never again going to be enough action for you to keep up with it. You can't use the Energy that creates worlds to create a situation and then find the action to keep up with it. You have to keep envisioning. You have to keep imagining it better.

Abraham-Hicks, G-10/12/97, Rye, NY

Let the rockets soar! And let it not matter that there is a rocket born that I have not yet achieved because I cannot help but achieve it. If I can contemplate it, if I can imagine it, then the Universe surely can deliver it to me. I could not imagine something that could not be.

Let it be. Let me relax and let …it …be.

You summon with the clarity of desire. And, we say to you, just relax and trust. That if you can want it, the Universe has yielded it and now its time for you to just relax. Not watching for evidence but trusting that the evidence will show up everywhere you turn ... and it is our promise to you, that it will.

Abraham-Hicks, Boston, MA, 10/05/02

You have no responsibility to struggle. None whatsoever....

If tomorrow everybody could focus upon what makes them lock on to the signal, everything that they have ever wanted would flow to them without any justification.

And now we say to you the most important part of that: not one other has to figure that out in order for you to begin your thriving. Just you.

Abraham-Hicks, Boulder, CO, 6/2/01

There are endless paths that lead to Source. And it is the connection to Source that is ultimately sought after by all.


Let more of your moments be about things that interest you.
Let more of your moments be about things that feel good while you are focused on them.
Let more of your moments be about things that make your heart sing.
Or things that taste good, or things that look good, or things that smell good.

Just relax more of the time!

Be the selfishly oriented GENIUS that you were born to be and insist that you feel good more of the time.

And it is our promise to you that blessings beyond anything that you have lived will flow into your experience...AND FAST! There is great love here for you. We are complete.

Abraham-Hicks, Boston, 5/15/04

Movie Wisdom

We are who we are. Even if we sometimes forget.

K, Men in Black II

Saturday, May 12, 2007

Abraham-Hicks: We create by what we think, whether it's real or imagined.

Whenever I think something in the physical world is real or when I have thoughts about family, politicians, or what any other "they" might be thinking, I remind myself of this Abe quote:

The Universe does not know whether the vibration that you're offering is because of something you're observing or something you're remembering or something that you are imagining. It just receives the vibration and answers it with things that match it.

Abraham-Hicks, Napa, CA, 2/27/97

If I'm thinking something that doesn't feel good about myself, the world, or people, this quote is a really helpful reminder for me to change my thinking.

Abraham-Hicks speaking to the mother of a beautiful baby girl

GUEST: People here know that you have helped me create my beautiful baby girl who is the most joyful, sparkling thing I have ever seen in my life. Now if you could take it a step further and tell me everything you know about how to treat her at this stage in her life, or remind me of everything that I know.

ABRAHAM: Treat her as if she knows. Honor her ability to choose, and trust that, in time, she will learn how to choose. Teach her, through the clarity of your example, which means, you cannot teach her connection unless you are connected. Do your dominant interacting with her when you are feeling your very best, and any time you don't feel that good, make yourself scarce from her.

When she asks questions, applaud every one of them, and if you don't have the answer, still applaud her question. And let her know, early on, that the knowledge that she seeks, and the good that is natural to her, will come from all kinds of places, not only through you. Encourage her independence from you, as quickly as you can, so that she can discover the thrill of creating on her own.

Fill her with words of encouragement. If you find a moment of dissatisfaction with her, swallow it. Do not speak it. But let the desire that is born out of that, roll across your mind in the night. Develop it fully until you have visualized a full picture of what you know she is wanting, relative to any subject. And once you have come to feel familiar about that, then begin to express it to her.

When you speak to her, always speak what you feel. If you don't feel good, don't speak. If you are always speaking what you feel and you are only speaking when you feel good, what you are doing is always opening a vortex that connects with the Energy and always flooding it into the relationship that you are having.

If, as she grows, she finds something that displeases you, and you feel that it is your job to correct her, and you do, and you feel the negative emotion that is within you, know that, in this moment of teaching your child, your Inner Being is not there with you. Come to trust the way you feel, and express to your little one only in your times of connection. There is plenty of contrast out there for her. And in doing this, what you will teach her is what it is like to be with someone who is, for the most part, connected to Core Energy. You will give her an up close example of how well the Universe responds to someone who's in vibrational harmony with Source.

It is not your job to protect her or guard her from anything, because there is nothing to be protected from unless you make it part of your consciousness. As she grows and begins to interact with others, there will be plenty who will be offering that information to her, and when that begins to occur, do not push against it. Do not feel that her connection is fragile. It isn't. She can get back to it easily. Impart to her: Her connection, that she is living fully now, and that you are learning or relearning and living much of the time, is not a fragile thing. You don't have to protect anyone from anything. Mostly, just get happy and stay there.

GUEST: I'm so busy because I'm working full time and I'm a single parent, and everything's going very nicely. I used to take three or four hours before I'd get those 17 seconds going. But when I did it, it was great, and it obviously worked. Now I may have five minutes. She's crying. Or something's going on. I know that I can do this. I'm just not real snappy at it yet.

ABRAHAM: Well, you get better and better at it. But here's a very strong statement to chew on for a while: Your child would benefit more from your full schedule, where there are all kinds of things that you are focusing on, that are drawing Energy through you, than if you had long leisurely afternoons with not a thought in your head, only to bask and pamper yourself and her, because what she benefits most from is the Energy that flows. And so, the busier you are, the more things you have to think about, the more decisions you're making in every day, the more Life Force is flowing through you.

GUEST: So it's okay? I don't have to worry as long as I'm appreciating, because I feel like I need to create for two now, because she's such a little sweet thing.

ABRAHAM: Well, in truth, she is the more dominant Creator now, because in her freshness and newness, there is pure desire that flows through her. And so, you are sort of swept up into the vortex of that Well-being. The most important thing that we are wanting to impart to you is: Your child is not fragile, and it is not your job to protect her from anything. It is your job to appreciate her, to appreciate all things, to let life flow through you, to live your life and let her live hers. She is very little and it's hard to imagine it, at this point, but these are the things that she would want us to tell you. What she wants you to know is, it's going to be a great life, and it's going to be more fun all the time. And that, every day, nearly so, there will be a new experience and that there will be no ending to the unfolding of it. And for you to stand in your now and try to anticipate that would be utterly overwhelming.

GUEST: So, I don't have to plan?

ABRAHAM: You don't have to plan anything. All you're wanting to do is focus. Stand where you are in your fresh wanting, offer it to the Universe, and let the Universe respond. Give her an opportunity to see a Deliberate Creator fully involved in one's life. Your connection with her was set into motion by the intentions you put forth before her birth. She understands you. She understands all of this. She will not be a child that you will have a difficult time explaining these things to. She already understands. In fact, it will be second nature to her, and by the time she is ready to communicate, and by the time she is old enough that she's really wanting to get off on her own, you will have figured it out. And she's counting on that. The conversations we have with her go like, "Abraham, by the time I'm really ready to get out there and roll, is my mom going to understand that all is well, enough, that she's going to let me do it?"

The loving, positive truths of Abraham-Hicks and Unity

There are so many loving, positive people offering workshops, retreats and information about creating the reality we desire. It's getting better and better! I wanted to share information about some that I've had personal experience with.

I have always found the writings, services, and prayers of Unity church to be positive and loving and they have always fit right in with my concepts of reality creation, especially Abraham-Hicks.


You have your hand on the switch. You are the allower or the resister. And your emotions tell you which you're doing right now. It's easy once you understand the formula: When you feel good, you're allowing good. When you don't feel good, you are not allowing good. We didn't say, when you feel good you are allowing good, and when you feel bad you are allowing bad (although it may translate into your experience in that way). There is only a Source of Well-being---which you are allowing or not. Abraham-Hicks, 7/20/02

So as you are focused on something right now, an idea or something that you are looking right at, and you feel wonderful as you give it your attention, that means that right here and now you, and all of you, in other words, you and the Source that is you, is having this moment in time. You are literally the eyes and ears and nose and are literally the taste buds for that which you call God. You are Source Energy in physical embodiment and when you feel good you are allowing all that you believe is God to flow through you in your powerful now. Abraham-Hicks, Ashland, OR, 7/19/03

...Well, in the sense that Nonphysical Energy flows forth to all of you, and you are all part of that source of Nonphysical Energy that is flowing, and in the sense that as you are here as physical catalysts to inspire one another to appreciate, which connects you with that same Energy of which you all are -- you are all related in the sense that you are all one. Different perspectives and projections of one.... Abraham-Hicks, Houston, TX, 01-23-94

You cannot be separated from that which you are calling God...People hear us say, "Reach for the thought that feels the best." And they think, "Oh no, I need to listen to what God wants." But aren't we talking about the same thing? Abraham-Hicks, 9-18-04

You are the creator of all that occurs in all of your life experience.You create your physical life experience through your thoughts. Literally, every thought that you think gives birth to a creation. Abraham-Hicks, 2/12/94

Wikipedia lists the five basic principles of Unity:

1. God is the source and creator of all. There is no other enduring power. God is good and present everywhere.
2. We are spiritual beings, created in God’s image. The spirit of God lives within each person; therefore, all people are inherently good.
3. We create our life experiences through our way of thinking.
4. There is power in affirmative prayer, which we believe increases our connection to God.
5. Knowledge of these spiritual principles is not enough. We must live them.

As thinking is believed to affect our reality, positive thinking is another important tenet in Unity. "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours" (Mark 11:22-24) is interpreted to mean that what one believes is what one receives, and that if one holds a belief that is not what one wants, one is, in effect, praying for what one does not want.

Unity is discussing the Law of Attraction and The Secret on their website.

I have called the Unity prayer line many times over the years. The person answering asked how they may pray with me and when I told them, it has been an amazing experience. The person I spoke to seemed to know the exact words I needed to hear right then. As I said, it is always positive and affirmative. They put my name in their prayer room and pray for 30 days and I've always appreciated knowing that Light-filled support was coming into my life. The Silent Unity prayer line is 1-800-669-7729 in the United States. International callers can check the Silent Unity website for the number to use.

When I lived in Virginia Beach in the 1980's I was a member of the Glad Helpers Prayer Group at the Association for Research and Enlightenment. We did energetic healing for people who were there, but also prayed for those who requested it. And I've done Reiki and energetic healing at other times in my life. It is one of those delightful experiences that feels as good to give as to receive so I'm very open to it and Unity prayer line is a treasured resource for me.

Myrtle and Charles Fillmore began Unity in the late 1880's. Myrtle studied spiritual healing in 1886 and healed herself of tuberculosis. Charles became interested and they went on to study new thought and create the Unity church. This commitment to healing continues today at Unity Village, Missouri, 1,400 plus-acres of sacred space for retreats, meditation, and prayer, where they are planning a holistic healing center.

Retreats are scheduled on spiritual transformation, unleashing your inner beauty, expanding your consciousness, intuition-developing your inner wisdom, creating the life of your dreams, celebrating your essential self (a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender retreat) and more.

Chief Joseph: Trust your feelings

John Cali

How much do other people’s opinions of you matter? I have to occasionally remind myself there’s only one person’s opinion that matters. And that is my own.

The other day I saw a quote from Dale Carnegie I absolutely loved:

Did you ever see an unhappy horse? Did you ever see bird that had the blues? One reason why birds and horses are not unhappy is because they are not trying to impress other birds and horses.

Our wise and wonderful animal friends are often great role models for us, are they not?

Here’s Chief Joseph.

Chief Joseph

Animals certainly are great role models for you, as John said. They are also great teachers for you, especially if you observe them closely. They don’t know they are teachers, and they don’t care -- after all, your opinions of them do not matter. All that matters to them is that they live joyfully, uninhibitedly, doing what comes naturally.

They live out their lives’ purpose by simply following their instincts or, you might say, by following their hearts.

Most humans do not follow their hearts. They allow themselves to be guided by outer circumstances. In fact, many of you were taught, as little children, not to follow your hearts. Instead, you were told others’ opinions mattered more than your own.

And you carried that perspective with you from the innocence of childhood into the forgetfulness of adulthood.

As you grew in years and physical maturity, you forgot all the wisdom of your child self. And your "authority" became whatever other people’s opinions were. Those opinions were often embodied, and even formalized, in many different ways -- in your religions, governments, educational systems, and so on.

We are not saying religion, government, and schools are evil. We are saying, however, they generally do not encourage you to rely on and trust your only real authority -- you, your higher self.

You will never, ever find any higher or better or wiser guidance than your own inner voice.

The opinions of others do not matter. We are not saying you should never listen respectfully to others. But we are saying you should always take what they tell you with, as you say, "a grain of salt." Run their opinions through the "filter" of your own inner guidance.

Trust your feelings -- they are your clearest form of communication between you and your higher self, between you and God.

And then you will have released yourselves from the prison of other people’s opinions.
