WHO IS Abraham? Here is an Extract from the
book "New Beginning 1" by Abraham-Hicks publications 1988:
We are a group of non-physical beings who are currently
living in a dimension that is different from the physical dimension in which you are focused. We stress that we are living,
for we are not wanting you to assume that because we are not in physical form, that we are dead.WE ARE VERY MUCH ALIVE………….
AND WE ARE VERY MUCH INVOLVED WITH LIFE. There are many of us gathered together here. We are what you would term a ‘family’
although we are not a family in the physical sense that you would usually think of as a family. If you were able to see us
as separate beings, you would see us as approximately 100 beings. Some of us have experienced many physical life experiences,
and some of us have not. And while we are currently participating with you through this woman through whom we are speaking
[Esther Hicks], we are also participating in other life experiences at the same time. And like you we are working upon more
than one project. We are a family that has been drawn together through evolvement. Those of us who are gathered here are together
because we are of the same intention, and just as you hold many intentions within your heart in any given moment, we do as
well. And all of our intentions are compatible with the intentions of others who are gathered here. When we are interacting
with one another in our Non-physical dimension, we do so not with spoken or written word but with the transmission of our
thought or intent to one another. In our Non-physical dimension we do not call one another by name, for our recognition of
one another goes beyond that which a label or name offers.

we want versus what we DON'T want!

Law of Attraction
Guest: How can we not attract things we don't want?
Abe: Do not give thought to that which you do not want.
It is a law.
~ Abraham -- Special Subject Tape 2 - Law of Attraction
The Art of Allowing
... the natural order of this universe is a stream of pure positive
powerful penetrating always-flowing ever-present delicious love well-being. And when you're in vibrational sync with it, you
So, the art of allowing is about discovering, or rediscovering, remembering
who you really are. It's about remembering the pure positive energy being that is You.
It's about remembering that you cannot get it wrong
and you never get it done. And the reason you can't get it wrong is because you
never get it done.
~ Abraham -- 11/10/01, Dallas, TX
Why Come Forth into the Physical
in the First Place?
is about focusing. And so why would you come into these bodies to begin with? In other words, source energy is in a very blissful
place. Source energy is that heavenly place that you are all going to eventually croak and reemerge back to.
So what's the point of physical
experience! If it's perfect in the nonphysical, you come in the physical, and you suffer for a while and you create some stuff
and then you reemerge back into the perfect place. In other words, what's the point! Why not just stay in nonphysical where
there is no resistance, where it feels perfect all the time?
And we say, the reason that you
come forth is because there is so much excitement, and so much stimulation, in getting to mold the energy.
Have you ever sat, try it some time,
it will teach you everything you need to know about creation. Get some really bright, gooey, colorful clay, lots of different
colors and put them in clumps on a table and invite four or five or ten children in and then have them sit over there while
you play with the clay. (tons of laughter) And say to them "I don't want you to play. I want you to watch me play. (laughter)
I am the creator of this stuff, you just sit over there." And they will be antsy; they would gather together in force and
tie you up if they could! (laughter) Because they are wanting so much they cannot wait to get their hands in the clay!
And that's the way you felt as you
came forth into these physical experiences. You didn't say, "Oh, I'll go forth into a perfect environment." You said "I like
this contrast that's going to cause me to focus." And you understood that the way you create is through the focusing, through
So, it's through the choosing and
feeling, choosing and feeling, choosing and feeling [that you create.]
Abraham-Hicks -- Tape
Abe: Do you know that the only thing that can ever hold
you back is your own limiting beliefs?
Now, what is a limiting belief? A limiting belief is a belief
that contradicts your desire. That's it.
Well, how did you get those beliefs? You just picked them up
along your physical trail, and now you drag them everywhere you go.
Do you do it deliberately? Do you say, "I think I will carry limiting
beliefs around with me, to keep me from thriving, to keep me from being clear minded, to keep me from being safe, to keep
me from being well, to keep me from being prosperous. I think I will just pick through the rubble of physical human experience,
and I will just gather up a whole parcel of things that don't serve me well. And I'll carry them around and pass them on from
generation to generation, and I'll make my life miserable with them and, hopefully, I'll pass them on to my children who will
do the same."?
It's not like that at all, is it? Not one of your limiting beliefs
did you pick up deliberately intending to do yourself or someone else harm. You did not do any of this in a deliberate way,
you did it in an indeliberate way, because you did not understand the power of your emotions. You did not believe that feeling
good meant that it was good for you.
It does not matter how you picked up these limiting beliefs.
The only thing that matters is that you recognize that the negative emotion is pointing them out to you.
Negative emotion is saying to you: 'You're holding a belief
that is thwarting your light from shining. It's thwarting the God Force or Creative Life Force that is naturally being drawn

Growth Through Joyous Experience
"To say, "I want growth," is a good thing.
However, to say, "I want growth through joyous experience,"
gives you more deliberate control."
All That Is and Angels
Guest: I'd like to ask you to speak a little bit about guardian
angels. Its just such a curious thing and I feel like I've had a good friend with me for a long time and it just seems like
another wonderful gateway.
Abe: Well it is more than just a good friend that you
have with you, it is Source energy. And have you noticed that, once you make a conscious acknowledgement of your connection,
then you get more of it.
In other words the more you experience it, the more you vibrate
it... the more you vibrate it, the more you experience it. It is your Source energy it is the stream of consciousness from
which you come forth.
It is not easy, as we are speaking to those of you who are physically
focused, for you to articulate or interpret the block of thought that we offer. You see we are visiting with you here, we
are not speaking these words into Esther's ear and she is repeating them to you.
Instead we are offering knowing and Esther is receiving this
knowing sort of like a radio signal. And she is translating it into the physical word equivalent. So a word like angel is
a very brief and not nearly complete enough word to describe the non-physical Source energy that is always aware of you, who
knows that all is well, always offering to you to assist you in achieving vibrational harmony with it, so that you can live
the all-is-wellness that is natural to you, you see.
Whether you call it a guardian angel, or an inner being. Whether
you call it God, whether you call it non-physical energy, the label does not matter.
The key is to recognise what it feels like and then to do your
best as much as you can to be a vibrational match to that feeling. As you are feeling for it, then it has to be your experience.
~Abraham-Hicks -- Tape G 12..6.95.
Abe: Before you go further - we will hear you further,
but we just want to say one thing to you. There are all kinds of things that many people believe, like cancer, that you don't
necessarily want to hold in your consciousness and activate within yourself. And so we really do not see a lot of value in
trying to pin the Universe down to "truths." Because the truth of what anyone lives is just the by-product of how they hold
their thought. You see?
Abe: So we'll go here with you, but we want you
to understand that what is, is what someone has held in their consciousness long enough to manifest.
Abe: Yes. So there are a lot of "truths" that are
Q: For that person.
Abe: For whoever is holding them as a vibrational
Q: Okay, so here's my question: before we came into
physical form, was it true or is it true that we had our life plan already directed for us and therefore we have no free will?
Abe: It is true in the sense that you are Source
Energy coming into a fantastic environment, knowing that you are a deliberate creator, and knowing that the potential for
[either] ecstasy or agony [is] there. In other words, you knew that you were a creator and you knew that the environment would
inspire your moment-to-moment creation, and you knew that you were worthy, and you knew that it would be a really good time,
and you knew that you are eternal beings, and you knew that you would be focused here only momentarily, and you knew that
no matter what happened you would re-emerge into the pure, positive energy. So in that sense you had your life planned out
because you knew it would be a valuable, exciting, delicious time of adventure on the leading edge of thought.
It is not true that every thought about what this life would
be was thought before you came. If that were true, you would not have come. You came forth to let the contrast inspire the
new thought because this is a universe that is attraction-based. So until there is an asking, there is no answering, you see.
So you said, from your nonphysical God state, "I will go forth into this environment, and I - the perspective that is me -
will be inspired to new desire that will call forth new life experience." So of course that statement [that we had our life
plan already directed for us] is ridiculous. We have never heard anything further from the reality of how it is established.
But anyone who wants to believe that will be powerless in their own experience, and they will make it their truth.
Q: Good. And that's how I was feeling, but I was
really rejecting this, and yet....
Abe: Well, rejecting it only activates something
within you [that] you don't want.
Abe: In other words, pushing against an idea that
does not please you keeps it active within you. The thing that is tricky, you see, talking about beliefs that are dominant
- this happens to physical folks because you have come to this place where you don't understand what's happening in your life
experience because you have not been trained to pay attention to the way you feel. You've been trained to disregard the way
you feel, to keep a stiff upper lip, that life isn't supposed to be fun, and that through your struggle and hard work you
justify your existence. So what happens is you look out into environments and you see things not wanted and you shout NO at
them, never realizing that every time you shout no at them you activate them -- and you about it -- and you hold it into your
And so then over time, as you feel no control over your experience,
then you start trying to explain why you've got no control in your experience, and you assign it to someone else. So you give
God all of the credit for what's happening or not happening. That's why God is such a schizophrenic in man's eyes (laughter
from audience) - God punishes and God rewards and God blesses and God damns and God curses. In other words, you don't want
to get crossways of God cause God could zap you with lightning, with a bolt of something and finish you off right away.
In other words, you've created this image of God as your puny
excuse to explain why your life today is not going better. And we say, the only reason your life today is not going better
is because you don't control of your own vibrations. You're flowing vibrations all over the place. You're observing stuff
you don't want, you're observing stuff you want, you're observing stuff you don't want, you're observing stuff you want. And
you're looking all over the place, activating it all over the place. You're like a cork on a raging sea, and you say, "I don't
have any control over my life. Somebody else must have control of my life. And the fact that my life sucks or the fact that
my life is going well must be that somebody had a plan for me, and I can't do anything about it. I'll just live my life. (Laughter
And we say, you've come here to be creators. You are creators,
that's why you're here. Let the God that is within you shine through you, but you have to feel the shining out. In other words,
you cannot allow it to come while you're grumbling about what is.
Religion is such an interesting thing because you have fashioned
it in order to explain where you are. When what you are about is coming forth to *be* who you are and to *allow* who you are,
~ Abe -- Cincinnati, OH, 9/23/02
So, You've Been Diagnosed as "Terminal"?
If we were in a physical body, and we found ourselves sick, which
means we've pinched off enough Well-being long enough, through our attention to what we do not want, that we have a sort of
habit of that going on, even though intellectually we would know that in the next moment we could step into a place and allow
the Energy to flow, and that the illness, that had been with us even for a long time, would leave us in the moment of doing
that... the approach we would take is: We would make a new decision to literally pamper ourselves, adore ourselves, coddle
ourselves, soothe ourselves in any possible way that we could figure out how to do it, back into Well-being. We would not
try to regret ourselves into it. We would not punish ourselves for what we've done wrong. And we would not frighten ourselves
by going for constant diagnosis.
We would say, "Alright, so that's the way it is. You say my
illness is terminal, then never mind. I'm going to take a different approach." And we would try to soothe ourselves back into
Well-being, by doing all of our favorite things. We would spend more time soaking in the bathtub if we like it, and more time
with our feet in the sand if we like that, and more time with this friend if we like it, and more time watching this movie
if we like it, and more time eating this food if we like it... We would pet our cat, right back into Well-being. All that's
required is distraction from whatever it is that's causing it.
Often, just by getting away, sometimes just by going to a beautiful
place and kicking back ( and you don't need a lot of money to do that) you can just withdraw from things that have been aggravating
you, and bask more in the Well-being that is, or can be, around you, until you regain your footing. That's what we would do.
We would put some distance between us and any thought, word
or action that brought forth negative emotion. If it is pleasing to you to have some well meaning person say, "You're croaking,"
then visit him every day. But if those words do not feel good when you hear them, then put yourself in a place where you do
not hear them.
~ Abe -- Virginia Beach, VA -- G-10/24/00
You could stand here sick with ten illnesses today, and tomorrow
have no evidence of any of them. Your body has the ability to replenish itself that fast. But most of you do not have the
ability to change your thoughts that fast. So the amount of time that it takes between sickness and wellness is only the amount
of time that it takes for me to figure out how to let it in -- for me to figure out how to feel good, when I'm looking at
something that makes me feel bad.
~ Abe -- Atlanta, GA -- G-11/4/00
There's nothing tiny or insignificant. Everything is significant.
And everything flows on the same basis of Laws. Whether you are looking at world events or something that's happening in your
kitchen drawer, broad and important, or narrow and seemingly insignificant, there's potential for connection or disconnection
in either case. And it is only the connection or the disconnection that is of really any importance.
~ Abe -- San Antonio, TX -- G-11/25/00
If you can hold a thought, just a simple thought, for 17 seconds,
without contradicting it, another thought like it same shape, same size, same vibration, same tone, by law of attraction another
thought like it will come to it. And at precisely the 17 second point, these two thoughts will join one another, they coalesce
and when they do that there is an energy that is expended, it is like a combustion point. And when these two thoughts join
and combust, you can feel a measure of enthusiasm or interest bubbling within you. And in that moment of 17 seconds, these
two thoughts that were same become one bigger,more evolved, faster vibrating thought. Now, if you can stay focused on this
subject that you have chosen for another 17 seconds, at the moment that you cross the 34 second mark that is just two times
17 this now more evolved thought will attract unto it and - in other words, the thoughts attract each other.
Your thought draws another and the other thought draws it, thoughts
that are same in nature come together. And at the 34 second mark these two more evolved thoughts do the same thing, they coalesce
and there is another combustion point.
At that point, these two thoughts become one, higher and faster
in vibration. If you can maintain you attention to that now more evolved thought, at the 51 second mark which is just 3 times
17 there is another coaleascing, another joining of thought and another combustion point. If you can hold that more evolved
thought for another 17 seconds, the same thing happens and when you cross the 68 second mark, you have a combustion big enough
to affect physical manifestation.
Just to get your attention we want to give you some physical
comparison; 17 seconds of pure thought is equivalent to 2000 hours of action. If you are working a regular 40 hour a week
job, that is about what you work in a year. 17 seconds equals 2000 action hours. If you can cross the 34 second mark, you
can multiply your action by ten, 20.000 action hours. If you can cross the 51 second mark 3 times 17 you can multiply by ten
again, a 200.000 action hour equivalent. If you can cross the 68 second mark - now that is just over a minute of pure con-contradicted,
non-diluted thought it is equivalent to over 2 million action hours.
Esther said: "Abraham, I believe you, but it sounds proposterous.
I cannot fathom that kind of leverage". And then Jerry and Esther purchased some commercial property over on the interstate,
interstate 10, close to where they live in Texas. And there had been a high rise building built on that, partially constructed
and the company went bankrupt and the building was demolished. And when Jerry and Esther purchased the land, it was a big
pile of rubble. And the big trucks and the roadgraders came, and in two days time, carried this mountainous rubble of debris
And as Esther stood watching it, she said to Jerry: "How long
would that take Carlos to do?" Carlos is the lovely man who cleared their residential property with wheelbarrow and a shovel.
And Jerry said: "In his lifetime, he could not make a dent in that".
And Esther said: I understand THAT leverage. This is what Abraham
is talking about. When you align your energies with the energies that create worlds, when you are no longer contradicting
at your CORE, amazing things happen. Now 17 seconds doesnīt sound like much, but as we watch you we see that most of you at
about 8 begin your contradictory vibrations. Most of you do not make it through a whole sentence without contradicting the
vibration of your desire. People will say to us: "Abraham,I want more money, I am so tired of the struggle", that was about
1 second. "Abraham, I want so much to be well, I am frightened of this illness".
You have been trained to be so objective that you keep shooting
yourselves in the foot. It is a little bit like someone saying: "I want a cup of hot tea" and so they turn the fire on under
their pot, and just before it boils they turn it off, and then they turn it on again, and just before it boils, they turn
it off and then they turn it on again and then just before it boils they turn it off and then they say: "For 15 years, I have
been trying to get some hot tea!" And we say: "Just leave it on, just leave it on a little longer".
If you could just resist the opposite knee jerk reaction, just
a little longer, you will begin to get the sense of what we are talking about.
The reason that it is difficult for you not to offer the contradictory
thought so quickly, is because you have been trained to be objective, you have been trained to weigh the pros and the cons,
the pluses and the minuses. You have been taught that this is balanced or even minded. And we say: You take it to an extreme,
because contrast will prod you into your greater clarity of desire, that is really the reason of this physical format, we
will talk about that in greater detail as it moves forward. Contrast is essential to decision, but once the decision is made,
if you will turn your full attention to your decision and do your best to achieve a vibrational match with that decision in
very short order, the Universe will go to work in helping you to achieve whatever it is that you are wanting.
We were talking with a woman on the telephone the other day
about pure thought and she couldnīt really understand what we were talking about. These are difficult concepts when you are
accustomed to just thinking about whatever is flashed before you. In other words, most of you as you watch the television,
it is much easier just to just observe what someone is offering to you rather than it is to close your eyes and offer your
own projection of thought.
And so we were wanting to assist her in holding 17 seconds of
pure thought. She had three very important issues that were troubling her; financial issue and a health issue and a relationship
issue. And we said to her; "Leave those issues aside for a while, because those issues you have practiced your negative thought
about them so much, that as you now try to practice positive thought it is still a watered down sort of process.
We said to her: "Lets take three subjects that you do not already
have a habit of negative thought about". Well, she couldnīt think of any. We said: "Just three subjects, they do not have
to be life changing subjects, just three subjects that are of interest, but you do not have a negative habit about". Well,
she still couldnīt think of anything so we said: "Lets talk about the subject of blue glass". She said: "What?!?" And we said:
"Blue glass. You know, some of it is clear and you can see through it. Some of it is muted or frosted and you canīt see through
it. Sometimes it is made into beautiful chandeliers or beautiful windows, or beautiful vases. All kinds are made from this
beautiful clear or frosted blue glass". And then we talked about feathers for 17 seconds and butterflies for 17 seconds.
And then the telephone call came to an end and Jerry and Esther
were in California, they were in San Diego and so they went to La Hoya for lunch. And when they got out of the car, Jerry
is walking down the street toward Georgeīs and Esther is walking into a shop and Jerry could not understand why she was taking
a detour and Esther did not really understand it either, she just said: "Lets look in here". And so they went in and deep
in the shop, Esther found a wall of the most amazing blue glass she had ever seen in her life. Shelf after shelf after shelf
of amazing sculptures made of blue glass. Jerry did not understand why Esther was captivated by it because he had not heard
the call and Esther did not make the correlation either. And they didnīt buy anything, it wasnīt appropriate for their house,
it was just AMAZING blue glass!
They had lunch and went to the park and as they were entering
the park, they were surrounded by a flurry of butterflies. Esther still did not make the correlation. And as they were leaving
about 15 minutes later, a little boy, an oriental boy, looked to be about two or three years old, had found a little pigeons
feather on the ground - and he was holding it at his full extension of his arm running toward Esther to show it to her. And
it was not until then, that Esther realized that in less than one hour of our spending 17 seconds together on those three
subjects, that the Universe had managed to deliver in DRAMATIC FASHION all three subjects.
We encourage you to play this game AND we encourage you to play
the game in threes. Because if you play it in one or two, you might be as Esther did and miss it altogether. If you will play
this game just a little bit by taking subjects that are of slight interest, but most importantly, subjects that are pure because
you have no contradictory thought about them the Universe will proof to you in two or three days time that it is utterly and
absolutely and ALWAYS responsive to your vibration.
But the reason you do not KNOW that the Universe is responsive
to your vibration is because you are saying: "I want a new red car, but it is to expensive" and as the Universe is responding
to both vibrations, you end up with no change what so ever.
You are getting the sense of what we are talking about? When you
begin to offer your vibration purely, and you begin to see the Universe responding to it.
In other words, if you will just play this game for two or three
days, two wonderful things will happen to you: The first is; you will show yourself you have the ability to hold your mind
on something for 17 seconds. And if you can do it for the first 17, you can do it for the second and the third and the fourth.
And the other thing that will happen is; you will give the opportunity to the Universe to show you that it is utterly responsive
to your vibration. You are going to learn that you really are a beaming energy that is being responded to. And it is going
to give you a sense of control, it is going to give you a sense of being the deliberate creator that you really are.
Friends, that is why you are here! You are creators! But let
us put that into very clear terms for you; you are creators MEANING you are focusers of ENERGY. If you do not have the ability
to hold a thought, you cannot be a creator. You are not regurgitators, you did not come forth to just observe all over the
place and vibrate all over the place. You came forth to direct energy! And by directing energy, you must HOLD the thought!
Now, how do you know how you are doing, in other words, how
do you know whether you are holding a thought or not? Well, you have to get sensitive to the way that you are feeling because
you can actually feel the fluctuations of the vibrations within you. Your emotional guidance system, in other words, the way
you FEEL is the way you know how you are doing!
Imagine a room fan, one of those well made, heavy, expensive,
heavy duty room fans. And it is blowing air in your direction. And it is so well made that even though you can feel the stream
of air blowing toward you, you canīt hear it, is is barely making any sound at all.
Now stick your pencil in the fan. Would cause quite a ruckus
wouldnīt it? Well that pencil in the fan, that is exactly what negative emotion is. When you introduce a lower, slower vibration
into a higher faster vibration, you can feel the fluctuation of the energy. A pencil in the fan is an extreme example of a
fluctuation of energy, but that is exactly what negative emotion is!
When you have a desire, when you have thought about something
and you have brought yourself to a place of desire and then you conclude; I canīt have that when you introduce that "I canīt
have it" thought to the higher faster frequency of desire, that disappointment or negative emotion is your pencil in the fan.
It is you introducing a lower, slower vibration into a higher, faster frequency. You get the sense of what we are talking
about? As you begin to play with this have you ever noticed, have you ever known someone where as the longer you talked to
them, the better you felt? It was just this friend, that when you got together, you always got feeling good. You got silly,
you had fun have you ever been with anyone, usually it is when you are very young, usually about teenage years is when this
all stops, you get together with that group of people and they are all in that happy vibration and you just play and play
and play and play, until you just parlade into an higher and higher vibration, until you feel that there is nothing that you
That is the feeling that we want you to reconnect with, we want
you to understand that if you could just hold a thought, any thought, for 17 seconds, it is going to COMBUST and give you
that energy sensation! And as you do this, as you begin to do it deliberately, and then you see the Universe responding, you
become creative things, you begin to then step into the shoes that you intended when you decided to come forth! You said:
" I will go forth into this sea of contrast, this blessed contrast and out of this contrast, it will be easy for me to come
to a conclusion! And once I reach a conclusion, then all I have to do is hold my thought in a similar vibration to my conclusion
and as I do that I will achieve a vibration outpouring that the Universe will match! I am creator, you said.
Abraham -- From the "Only 17 seconds from your
desires!" Tape Album
Most physical beings do not have any real sense of how their life
unfolds and what vibrational creative control each hold. Most do not understand that everything is about vibration. And the
reason that you don't understand that everything is about vibration is that you have come to rely on only your five physical
Because you have come to rely on only your five physical senses,
most do not understand that everything is about vibration.
The vibration that you interpret as vision, the vibration that
you interpret as sound, or the vibrations that you interpret as smell or taste or touch, these are all vibrations that you
have learned to translate through your five physical senses. But there are other vibrations that you cannot decipher through
And so, you must use another sense. Some call it your sixth sense;
we are calling it your emotional center, that feeling that you get in your solar plexus. Those emotions that you feel are
also interpreters of vibration.

Abraham on Action/Creating
When we talk about molding Energy, what we're really talking about
is getting out there and thinking. Think, and feel how that thought FEELS. Think. Use your Guidance System.
Don't come to a seminar and try to get somebody to tell you
what to do, don't go to books or dig up books that have been buried 2,000 years ago and try to figure out how to live your
life. Get out there and live, and any moment that you're off the track you'll feel it. Every moment that you have stepped
away from the Energy, you'll feel it.
So what you begin to notice is that there is a pattern:
When you are appreciating, you're full of this Energy; when you're blaming, it's not there. When you are applauding and finding
value and seeing positive aspects, it is pouring through you. If you're finding lack and finding fault and seeing criticism,
it's not there. So, as you begin to just think and feel, think and feel, you can teach yourself, in a matter of a few days,
how to get back into connection with that Energy.
Everybody's running around trying to find somebody to love them,
when what all of you really want, is an object of attention that pulls pure Energy through you.
Unless you are able to bring yourself to a place of feeling good
about it, don't take action. So what are we concluding here? Your work is to first find the feeling place, then take the inspired
So are we trying to guide you away from action? Not at all.
Action is delicious. Act as much as you have physical time, energy, and inclination to act. But always take your point of
action from a place of feeling good.
When you believe that it is through your effort that you make it
happen, and you apply effort and you get tired, then you disconnect from what really makes it happen.
~ G 2/28/93
Nothing is more exhilarating than to get your action in harmony
with your thought and desire. That is the flow that you're talking about. That is life of ecstasy; that is a life that flows;
that is a life of doors opening everywhere; that is a life of being able to do what you could not otherwise have done if you
were ten people, one hundred people, one thousand people.
~ G 10/3/92
You see, the day that Esther laid in her bed and launched the intention
to be in the first class seats, there were MANY 'co-creators' involved. The people at the airport, the people on the airplane,
the flight attendant, the person in the other city who took an earlier flight and left another seat open. In other words,
there were 100s of other co-creators involved in that scenario that Jerry and Esther never did see. In other words, they could
not physically, in an action sense, see it. So, when you are talking about co-creating, realize that this co-creation is not
just you and your co-creating partner. It is you and a whole host of physical and nonphysical beings.
Expanding Time... Or Anything Else
So how would one go about expanding time? By acknowledging leverage.
Imagine a big heavy box. You want to pick it up. So instead of trying to pick it up, you take a pole and a fulcrum and you
stick it under and then you push on the other end of the pole. Leverage. Use the leverage of the Energy that creates worlds...
When you get into the flow with the Energy that creates worlds, you will have leverage beyond your wildest dreams. Seventeen
seconds of focus that is not contradicted is equivalent to over 2,000 action hours. Only twice that -- 34 seconds of non contradicted
thought -- is equivalent to 20,000 action hours. Add another 17 seconds to it and you can multiply by ten again. 68 seconds
of non contradicted thought is equivalent to more action hours than you could work in ten life times.
Esther said, "Why don't I know that? If I have access to this
kind of leverage, why don't I know that?" And we said: You rarely hold yourselves on a subject for 17 seconds, long enough
to allow that thought to combust into a more specific, and therefore more powerful, thought. "You are like most people," we
said to Esther. "You are so caught up in the reality of what you are living, that the vibration that you offer is mostly only
about what you are living."
So whenever you say, "I don't have enough time," that's the
vibration that you offer, and you don't have access to exercises or thoughts or ideas or people that you could delegate to.
You don't have access to the way the world works without so much action.
Haven't you been mystified when you see people who seem to not
work very hard at all that have so much wonderful stuff coming to them? And then, you see those that are working the hardest
-- and they seem to be getting the least. Haven't you ever wondered what was wrong with that? They just haven't learned the
leverage of aligning Energy. They are going about it the hard way. They are trying to use their action to create -- rather
than their alignment of Energy.
~ Abraham, Excerpted from Workshop at Tarrytown, NY --
Allow Others to Experience Their Choices
*As you understand that through your powerful thoughts you have
the power to control that which you experience, then you will no longer fear others, you will no longer resent others, and
you will then be more willing to ALLOW others to be as they are.*
**It is important that you recognize their right
to create that which they are choosing, just as you recognize your right to create that which you are choosing.**
you were not living in an environment where there were many others, you would not have an opportunity to come to understand
so clearly. But as you are interacting with others, understanding and applying the *Creative Process*, you will be delighted
to experience your individual freedom to create whatever it is that you are wanting -- at the same time that you are allowing
all others to do the same.
[Emphasis Abraham's] -- Calendar, p607
Abe: What we're getting at is, the more connected to Source
you become, the more stable you are, the more able you're able to roll with things and the more what others are doing or thinking
or feeling becomes a non-issue to you. And then you are able to be the uplifter that you have come here to be.
That's what bugs most of you about not feeling good -- you know
at the very core of your being that you are an uplifter, and when somebody has made you not feel good it is doubly terrible
to you because not only were you not intending to come forth and be dependent on them to make you feel good, you planned on
making them feel better. But it is so hard to make somebody feel better when they have just made you feel bad. (Laughter.)
In other words, when you're out of that stability the last thing
you want to do is uplift who's making you feel bad. So we say don't work too hard at this - we make too much of all of this.
In other words, we have to justify all the money you've spent and all the miles you've driven to be here. We talk on and on
and on where really all you ever needed to know is: 'If I would look for something to appreciate and make that my dominant
vibration, I would live happily ever after and fulfill my reason for being.'
We should have one minute seminars from now on. (Laughter.)
Everyone can gather from far and wide -- double the price, it
will make them appreciate it more (more laughter) -- and everyone will gather, and we will say:
The Secret to Life is this:
'Look for something to appreciate and practice it until it becomes
easy, and you will live happily ever after! There-is-great-love-here-for-you-we-are-complete.'
