The world needs your Light right now


Your natural state is that of Well-Being.

The only opinion, in all of the Universe, that is of true importance to you, is your own. And your own opinion of you, affects the entire Universe.

The creative life force, or energy of the Universe, flows through you and literally connects you to All-That-Is. Through your attention, or focus of thought, you draw the specifics unto you.

Example of Living Joyously

JERRY: I was lying on the beach today, or on a rock at the beach at the La Jolla Cove, and just in total ecstasy. Every breath was bringing in fragrances from the ocean and the seaweed, and all. It almost lifted me off the rock. And the sun touching my body was so spectacular and the breeze over my body, I just let it flow to no thoughts, only those marvelous, marvelous feelings. And then I thought, "Gee, I guess a person could stay here forever and do this." And then I thought... "But then I'm not doing any good." And then I thought... "Abraham, said that we're doing good by example more than we are by words." And then I thought... "Boy, being happy as I am, must be the best example." Then then I said... "But nobody knows I'm happy, 'cause I'm here by myself." 

[And on the rock Jerry thought about when he was a child and he decided he wanted to do work for God. He talked about going from church to church and not finding out what was God's work. And he decided maybe he could be an uplifter and help people feel better about themselves.]

But then I come back to you, and you say that we really don't have to do any work, that just to be joyous and happy is doing enough work for all of the ...all beings in the Universe. Would you clarify that little moment of confusion I had on the rock today?

ABRAHAM: You are a physical being, looking through physical eyes, still thinking that 'doing' is what makes the difference. Still believing that it is through your action that you accomplish, or offer, while we continue to want to guide you to the understanding that is through your thought and corresponding feeling that you create, you see....


As you think, you feel. Always. And as you feel, you ooze. You know that.... If you are mad at your child and you are still saying sweet words, your child still knows he's in trouble. All of you are receiving on levels far beyond your language. And so, as you think, you feel. As you feel, you radiate or influence, and that is what is making the difference. That is why when you lay on the rock and bask in the glory of beingness, oozing that fantastic positive Energy, you are uplifting All-That-Is. Everyone who seeks it, now has access to that which you are feeling....

Abraham quotes are from A New Beginning II by Jerry and Esther Hicks, p. 145, p. 154, p. 156 and pp. 218-220.

When I said the world needs your Light right now, I wanted to let you know how valuable your appreciation, your joy, and your happiness are. In big waves or brief, gentle moments, appreciation not only feels good to you, but it is extending Well-Being into the physical world and we all benefit. It is enough to feel good, but in addition, Abraham tells us the inspiration from those good feelings will inspire us to action that is even more pleasurable.

Thank you for the loving, Light that you are.

To change circumstances, tell a new story

Abraham tells us we create by our thoughts. A thought repeated over and over becomes a belief, or another way of looking at it, it becomes our story. If we want to manifest new circumstances then one way we can do that is tell a new story. This is from a section about physical health, but it applies to any circumstances.

You are the only one who creates in your experience -- no one else. Everything that comes to you comes by the power of your thought.

When you focus long enough that you feel passion, you harness more power and you achieve greater results. The other thoughts, while they are important and have creative potential, usually are only maintaining what you have already created. And so, many people continue to maintain unwanted physical experiences simply by offering consistent -- not powerful, and not accompanied by strong emotions -- thoughts. In other words, they merely continue telling the same stories about things that seem unfair, or unwanted things that they disagree with, and in doing so, they maintain unwanted conditions. The simple intention of telling better feeling stories about all subjects that you focus upon will have a great effect on your physical body. But since words do not teach, it is our suggestion that you try telling a different story for a while and observe for yourself what happens.

From Money and the Law of Attraction,, Esther and Jerry Hicks, p.102

I'll give you a tool that goes with telling a new story. This is a process from the book Busting Loose from the Money Game by Robert Scheinfeld. I read the book several years ago and just wrote down the process, not the page number. I may not even be quoting him exactly, but it will give you the idea. Some of his ideas felt right to me, some didn't. I took from it some very helpful processes though. I love this tool to reclaim reclaim our power, for that is what we are doing when we tell a new story. We may have given the old story power when we were too young or vulnerable to see that it didn't suit us. Now we can consciously choose the story of our life any way that pleases us. You may feel peace, relief, joy. You may or may not have an intense experience, but you are clearly telling a new story using this process. Change any words to those that feel right to you.

If you are having negative feelings, feel them to the peak of intensity and then say:

I am the Power and Presence of God creating this. It's not real. It's an illusion. It's completely made up. It's a creation of my consciousness.

I reclaim my power from this creation NOW! As I reclaim that power I feel it coming back to me. (Pause and feel the power, the relief of it returning). I feel it surging into me. (Pause and feel it surging, feel the joy and energy.)

As I feel the surge, I feel myself expanding more and more into who I really am, the Power and Presence of God. I feel myself expressing more and more of who I am in my human experience. I AM the Power and Presence of God. I am in infinite abundance (or health, well-being, etc) right here and now.

Now you know you created this and you reclaimed your power. Acknowledge your power and appreciate your creation from your old story.

How amazing I am to create this and convince myself it was real. How amazing the creation was and how well it served me.

I had a aunt that had a very large birthmark that covered the complete side of her face, but she was a beautiful, confident, attractive woman. She was talking about it one day and I said I didn't even see it, and I didn't. I just saw her. She told me that when she was a child my grandfather used to tell her every day that she was beautiful and a time came when she believed him.

It can be great fun and very freeing to tell a new story. It doesn't have to start from what you think is reality and go on from there. Start anywhere you want and have fun with it. I've told myself stories about time travel or going to other dimensions that were great fun. I let go of all of the "beliefs" of this world and created my own.

You are telling a story anyway, now tell yourself a story that pleases you.

Abraham-Hicks: Breaking free from addiction, 12 steps

I just listened to a couple of sections of the Beyond the 12 Steps DVD. Abraham is pointing out that addiction to substances are an attempt to regain control of our experience, when our true empowerment comes from realizing that we have the power to change our thoughts and feel better.

There were some soothing thoughts that I liked and wanted to share. Abraham describes what they would say to someone who was addicted and wanted to break free.

The first thing we would say to them is, you have greater control of your life than you know, but it’s all right if you don’t know it right now.

That seems like the perfect stance for any situation in which we feel overwhelmed or can't find the better feeling thoughts. I also liked the thought that the addiction is the desire to feel better in a world where the person doesn't feel in control.

If you could separate your body from this substance for as short as three days, the cellular calling would cease. No matter what it is, the cellular calling would cease. But we don’t think it’s the cellular craving that is at the heart of these addictions. It’s the vibrational imbalance and the insatiable desire to feel better in a world that you can’t find a way of feeling better because it feels like it’s in control of you. So you have to come back into your personal power, before, before you have control of what’s happening in your experience....

Do you know that when we address an audience like this it is very common to find these students and teachers of Abraham to also be in the classification of addicted to some sort of drug or alcohol. And the reason is that you came forth with such intensity of wanting to uplift. The knowing within you of who you really are is vibrating so powerfully within you that when something in your society or in your family or up close to you caused you to see life or see yourself as different than who you really are because your stream was flowing so powerfully you took it really, really hard. In other words, you’re sensitive and it’s painful and then you want to do something to mute the pain.

Abraham-Hicks, Beyond the 12 Steps: Breaking Free of Addiction DVD

There are as many paths to empowerment and alignment as there are people. Appreciation and loving self are lovely paths.

We wish every moment of your experience to be joyful like it is for us. We want you to look around your world and not worry, but to revel in its beauty. We want you to look around your own life and not worry, but to revel, in its magnificence. We want you to look at your own body and not nitpick about a wrinkle or an extra pound, or 20 or 30 or 40.

We want you to look at yourself and adore yourself. If you will make this small effort to appreciate you and what is yours now, you will soften, so quickly, any resistance that has been keeping you apart from the things you want. It is the magic formula that you’ve been looking for. It is the key to your blending. It is the key to your allowing. It is the key to you getting what you want. It is the key to your abundance, your clarity, and to your stamina. It is the key to your energy. It is the key to your vitality. It is the key to your flexibility. It is the key to your wellness. It is the key to all things that feel good to you.

Make some small effort, every chance you get, at looking at where you stand now and doing your best to soothe and appreciate you now, to soothe and appreciate your Now.

Intentions: The process of becoming and being

I've written many times about my favorite deliberate creating tool, intentions, and how powerful they are for me. I like to start my day by sitting down and just listening inside to what I would like to create each day. As I do this I write it down in a spiral notebook. When I'm doing this listening and writing I feel like I'm looking inside my body and summoning who I am into my conscious awareness. Vague desires about what I would like to be or have become much clearer to me.

When I first wrote intentions they were for things I wanted to get done during the day. I might have written that I wanted the energy and enthusiasm to clean the kitchen. I realized how powerful they were when I found that I walked into these creations during the day and all of a sudden I would find myself easily and energetically getting things done.

I became more interested in writing desires for states of being than for getting things done. As a matter of fact, I've been exploring the desire to merge with my extended self and live in a blended state of balance in this physical experience. I would ask myself what that would be like this moment, this day and listen for the answer. I was just looking through a notebook filled with daily intentions and realized my process for working with intentions has been the merging and blending I asked for. When I listen and pull forth the desires, they are my desires for "becoming." As I clarify, my extended self becomes my desire immediately. And during the day I have been walking into and "being" what it is I asked for. I've been feeling like I've been creating myself every day. It's like I've been writing a story of who I am and then living it. Very interesting!

I'm very excited about this new awareness and feel I can really begin to play with creating. I feel like anything is possible!
You have not come here to prove yourselves worthy. You've come here because you saw physical life experience as delicious and you wanted the experience. You wanted the environment, you wanted the data, you wanted the process, you wanted the sensualness, you wanted the physicalness of thought, you wanted the combination of that which you are from Inner Perspective and that which you are from physical perspective -- because the combination is so very, very good.

Trust your desires, they are good and they are who you really are

Abraham often uses the analogy of traveling from Phoenix to San Diego to explain the value of our feelings. Emotions are sign posts on whatever journey we are traveling in the same way the mile post signs point the way to San Diego. Our positive feelings on the subject tell us we are going in the direction of our desires. Source Energy and our Inner Being go immediately to our desires so our negative feelings give us the measure of the gap we think is there between us and our desires.

One journey I am on is turning around some thinking about my body that came from experiences when I was very young. The conflicting beliefs are those I heard or chose to think from my experiences.

I feel strongly about the direction I want to go, natural health and thinking my way to Well-Being. When we feel strongly about taking a certain path in spite of what others think or say, even doctors, it's important to see our desire as positive. It is ours. Our Inner Being IS our desires manifested in spirit. It is who we are.

And Source does lead us in the way we want to go. It’s a matter of listening to the emotional guideposts in that direction and following the impulses to take action. It may be supplements or eating a certain way. I have been guided to wonderful doctors and healers in my life.

I have been back around family for several years now and those old beliefs were activated. This area doesn't seem to be as rich in the open thinking and healing resources I had before. I felt conflict between what others (doctors and others) said and what I wanted to do. I realized that even here, the choice is to believe in my desires and all else will fall into place.

This post is meant to be an encouragement to you if you have a desire that doesn't seem to fit what you have been taught in the past or that others don't agree with now.
Faster than you can speak it, the Energy begins to flow and circumstances and events, in an orchestration that we cannot begin to describe, begin to take place in order to give you exactly what you want -- and if it were not for your resistance, it would come really fast, you see.

You don't have to keep telling the Universe what you want. You really only have to tell the Universe once. The advantage of continuing to talk about it is that you get clearer about it. In other words, usually you cannot speak everything that you want with your first statement, and so, the more you talk about it the more you fine-tune it.

But as you say, I want it, the Universe begins it, and then you say, I would like it to be this way, and the Universe modifies that, and then you say a little bit of this would be nice, and the Universe...you see what we're getting at? And once you are clear about what you want, once you have zeroed in on it and you know what you want -- it is on the way to you. It is done. The manifestation of it will probably follow later, because there is, most often, enough resistance so that you don't have it instantly.

The Universe will never fail you.

The Universe will always give you what you have asked for. The question is, how soon will you allow it?

Abraham-Hicks: What it means when we "read" another's vibration

In Abraham's Syracuse, NY workshop, October 1, 2003, the gentleman in the hot seat told Abraham that when he is interacting with others he's beginning to feel their vibration.

I'm paraphrasing Abraham here who answered that it’s like a reading about the person, but it's more about this man's relationship to where he wants to go. It gives him a reading about how that person's vibration is affecting him. As he focuses on another's vibration it becomes part of his vibration. In this way he can tell the people who are a good match for him.

Abraham was saying to be willing to read others, but don’t make it too important. You have already asked the Universe to match you. So if someone is before you who is not a good match, don’t delve too deeply into the reading because then you try to explain why you’re getting the reading. “I’m not making this up. I can really feel that they’re not going to do what I want them to do.” All that does is hold you in that vibration longer which makes that distance all the further apart. [end paraphrasing.]

I don't have the quote, but in another workshop Abraham said if we had a bad feeling it didn't mean something bad would happen, it was just a measure of the distance between our beliefs and where we were focusing our attention and where our extended self was focusing attention.

I have had intuitions since I was in high school and always thought of it as guidance from Spirit. I like this information. My feelings are not a prediction of something outside of myself that I have no control over, it's still a measure of the distance between my Inner Being and my focus and how I'm thinking -- that's something I have the power to change.

One thing I've always liked about Abraham's information is how empowering it is. We really do have control over our experience this way. We have control over how we feel and that's what it's all about.

Contrast helps you to identify desire. Desire is summoning. It's always flowing through you. You have the opportunity of opening to the harmony of the vibration of your desire or not. As the desires are being summoned through you, and you go with the flow, you thrive, but if you use things to be your excuse for not going with the flow, you are arguing for your limitations. We want to show you how to go with the flow. Which means nothing more than finding vibrational harmony with your own desire, and letting the Universal Energy that your desire is summoning to it flow to it through you. It is optimum creative experience.
