“We’ve Got You” Abraham

Last night my sister sent me an Abraham snippet entitled “Until the path is blatantly obvious, there is nothing for you to do”. I thought that would be good to hear, so I tried playing it. Twice. All I heard was blah, blah, blah. You know like when you read and re-read a paragraph and then realize you have no idea what it said?
Yeah, like that.
This morning as I was redirecting my attention from an unwanted scenario I was finding it “sticky”, my mind kept slipping back to it. Even when I was actively considering something else, I could feel it hovering in the wings.

I remembered Abe saying not to be afraid of our thoughts, and that distracted me enough to leave the other behind. I thought, “If we are determining our vibration from what we focus upon, why shouldn’t certain thoughts naturally activate some fear?”

And then I thought about the scenario I had been contemplating and realized that there are billions of people in that circumstance (who wear glasses) and that thing almost never happens to any of us.

Suddenly I got an image of myself as a little speck upon a huge, well, it looked like a blob, lol, but it was an image of me compared to my higher self/inner being. I realized that both parts are affecting the LOA, pulling as it were, and the “blob” of my non-physical self is exerting so much more “pull” than I am, and ALL POSITIVE.

THAT is the river of well-being Abraham describes, the ocean, the universe, the eternity, the all-that-is-ness of well being. I saw myself sitting in the “hand of God” and really understood that if I did nothing, thought nothing, that I would be carried in that hand, by that river, towards everything that I desire.

But I don’t want to do nothing and think nothing. Few of us do. But if I understand that since the LOA is delivering all that I desire to my non-physical self (and therefore mostly in non-physical form) if I were to be looking at all times for the ways it is manifesting in my life (which will be in those places where I am not holding it away with my resistance to the flow) then I will begin to see it and make it manifest in greater abundance or real-ize it, as Abe says.

But even better, if I can just relax enough to stop struggling most of the time, the current will carry me along. And when I get better at relaxing and things are showing up for me, then I will feel like looking for all the good in my life and it won’t feel like “efforting”.

This is why and how it can be effortless.
Thanks Kath, your Abe snippet did the job without me even hearing it. smile emoticon

Trust Yourself

You and you alone are the best judge of what is right for you.  Pardon me,  I meant “Right”, because it also includes what is “True”.  For you.  My friend Coffee Lady and I have agreed to disagree about whether there actually is such a thing as ‘objective reality’, but each of us is convinced of the Truth of the matter :)  But that’s another post for another time.  This post is about how each of us, as a vibrational being, is perfectly suited to interpret the vibrations around us and choose the ones that are right for us.

To paraphrase Abraham (and to misquote Madonna at the same time!):

  “We are living in a vibrational world,

   and I am a Vibrational Girl”

We have eyes to interpret light waves, ears to interpret sound waves, taste and smell for volatile/excited food particles , etc.  We also have emotions which are the sense ‘organ’ for detecting how well we are in alignment with our larger selves.  This ability has gone largely uncredited, even scorned for the role it plays.  Growing up, did you ever have the temerity to tell your parents or teachers that you didn’t do what they expected of you because you didn’t feel like it? How many times  did you repeat that technique? :)

Over time, you learned to ignore as much as possible what your emotions were telling you, and to use standard, socially acceptable templates to choose what you could and could not “get away with”.  You probably learned how to feign illness (which after chronic success became real illness), how to disappear when chores awaited, how to sweet-talk or manipulate a delay or compromise, etc.   All the while, this valuable guidance system either earned less and less attention or had to become VERY LOUD in order for you to give it credit.

Ironically, people who felt very strongly that they should not get on that airplane that crashed are lauded as either psychic or “protected” by angels or such, when in fact it was their own emotional guidance system doing its job.  It should be noted, however, that someone who was really in touch with this emotional guidance would probably have gotten the message long before they got to the airport.

In the process of re-learning to follow our emotional guidance, it is important to take it in stages.  Very few people could tolerate the fear engendered by telling their boss that they are not inspired to come in to work today, or tolerate the rapid change in their employment status, either.   So, taking it stepwise is perfect.  Do what you “feel like” on your off time. Practice changing your feeling about going to work, although this is tricky, because you have to actually feel better, not just come up with words that sound good (a common issue).

It is also important to recognize the difference between “I want” and “I feel like”.  I discovered that I was saying, “I want to clean the house” when I absolutely didn’t feel like cleaning.  What I was feeling was, “I want this house clean because then it would be okay for me to take a nap” which is what I actually felt like.  If this sounds complicated, that is only because most of us have built up our resistance to pleasing ourselves in many ways over the years.  It takes some time to peel back the layers, bit by bit.  But you have the tool if you will only begin to learn how to use it.

So if you can trust your nose to tell you what is going to be delicious, your balance to keep you upright, your eyes to find your keys… you can trust your feelings to guide you in more esoteric ways.  Like the bumper sticker says, “If it feels good, do it!”.

I am changing, blog is changing…

In the 7 months since I began this blog I have undergone numerous changes of direction, but I always tried to keep the focus of the blog in the same ballpark.  That is, I was attempting to make LoA principles understandable from a mainstream perspective.

I have recently come to understand that what I really want is a place to record the inspirations that sheet through the universe and land in my brain.  Whether anyone gets it or not.  That’s not to say that I don’t want you to get it. I do.  But it is really more about getting it out of my brain and into form, and less about “teaching” anybody anything.  I expect that, the Law of Attraction being what it is, anyone who needs/wants  to hear what I say will be attracted to it in some miraculous or mundane fashion.

Just thought I’d say it.  :)

And I am sooo not done….
