Abraham-Hicks: You have the choice to feel better in this moment

As deliberate creators we know that our emotional guidance system gives us feedback about our thoughts in the form of emotions. Negative emotions tell us we are looking at lack and positive emotions tell us we are aligned with our Inner Being. There is one easy thing we can remember that will always keep us facing in the direction of alignment:

Of course, there is a broad range of emotions--from those that feel very bad to those that feel very good--but in any moment in time, because of whatever you are focused upon, you actually only have two choices in emotion: a better-feeling one or a worse-feeling one.

Abraham-Hicks, Money and the Law of Attraction, p. 108.

It doesn't matter what happened before. It doesn't matter what thought we had that didn't feel good. It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks of us. It doesn't matter if we don't like what we created. It doesn't matter if we don't know how to do it differently. It doesn't matter if others are pointing fingers or even if they are ignoring us. Nothing matters but our feeling good in this beautiful moment in the eternal Now.

If we take this moment in time and choose a better feeling thought then that is the path we walk. In each moment we have that choice. And so what if something triggered a thought that doesn't feel good. Even if it's an old pattern and we run with the rut we have established for awhile. All we have to do is choose a better feeling thought and we are on a new path.

And each time we make that choice the old path fades a little more and the new one becomes our reality. Because we choose it. Because we are facing the Light. Because it feels good. Because we allow ourselves that delicious feeling of our true selves: our Inner Being.

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

You are an extension of Source Energy. You are one who loves, and you are one who loves to think, and you are one who loves to create, and you are one who loves to contemplate. You’re one who enjoys stimulation of thought. You’re one who enjoys choosing; you enjoy considering; you enjoy pondering; you enjoy fashioning. You enjoy putting things together. You enjoy figuring things out. You enjoy knowing. You enjoy not being sure and then becoming more sure. You enjoy the evolution of a thought. You enjoy the expansion of an idea. You enjoy the expansion of life experience. You enjoy the pleasure of being this genius focused in the most creative environment that has ever existed, for the fulfillment of things that satisfy you.

You are liquid love in physical bodies, wanting, more than life itself, because it is life itself, to adore the vessel that’s you through which this Source Energy flows. You are God. You are Source. You are creator.

You always feel good from your Source Energy perspective.

Abraham-Hicks -- look for the positive aspect

I'm reading Abraham's new book, Money and the Law of Attraction, with much appreciation. I love the timing of the book and even the way I was able to buy it. It was on sale on Amazon.com and I had some money left over on a gift certificate which paid for the book and shipping.

In my experience, it is valuable to read Abraham or listen to workshop CD's because I attune to Abe's lovely vibration. Even if I have a book and haven't read it, the vibration is in my experience and ready for me when the time is right. I had this book for awhile and one night I was getting ready for bed and had the thought that it was time for me to read it. The timing is perfect because of circumstances which are causing me to ask for new ways to think about them. I savor Abe's words and read a little bit almost every night before I go to bed. I say, "Ok, Abe. I'm ready for the next step in remembering deliberate creating." And then I read and find a great new technique or way of thinking that uplifts my spirits.

For example, Abraham advises us to look for the positive aspect in anything we are paying attention to -- especially if it is something we are not wanting and it's right in front of our face. If we focus on the positive aspect, conditions will improve.

I really enjoy turning my thinking around and Abraham offers many ways to find the gold gleaming in unwanted conditions. Here's one way that I use to see the positive in the midst of negative emotions:

When you feel negative emotions about anything, it always means that you have a desire that has been born from your personal life experience, that you are, right now, opposing with other thoughts. ~Abraham-Hicks, Money and the Law of Attraction, p. 73.

Here are the steps I go through in my thinking:

1. The gold for me is to remember that I'm having that negative feeling because I have a strong desire.

2. I remind myself that my desires are met instantly. They are real. They are answered.

3. I remind myself that the negative feelings are coming from a thought and it is only a thought. I chose it. I can change it.

4. Then I think about what it is I want at this point and ask for it. Usually the negative feeling comes from an old way of thinking that I can't have what I want. I know now that I can have it. Each time I make the new choice I change my point of attraction!

5. I usually feel relief from those steps because I've worked with these concepts enough that I know they are true. If I still feel negative feelings I use other tools to bring relief depending on what I feel would work best. Here are a few of them:

~keep repeating steps 1 to 4 -- each time I am changing the pattern.
~distract myself with books or DVDs
~use the Emotional Freedom Technique
~call Unity prayer line - very Abishlike, positive prayer. 1-800-669-7729.
~go outside to be with nature
~talk to Abe or my Inner Being and then listen. They always answer very quickly.
~use my version of the placemat process, giving my feelings, desires, and intentions to the Manager, Abraham, or my Inner Being
~ask my Inner Being how it would view the situation or ask what to do to feel better. The answer comes from within.
~write or think about things I appreciate

These tools and processes work to change my thinking. I feel better and that's the important thing. The other part is that it allows me to accept the good that's jumping up and down in it's desire to come into my life. Welcome to all that goodness!

99 percent of every creation is complete before there is any physical evidence.


It doesn't matter what thing you've done, it only matters what thing you do -- because you can't resist in the past tense, you can only resist in the powerful Now. You might have started a pattern before and you might be continuing a pattern, but it's the doing now not the 'have done' that matters.

Abraham-Hicks, Cincinnati, OH, 7/7/01


Q: And there are other times when I focus on something, raise my vibration, see it happening -- imaging -- and it doesn't come to me. And is that because I'm coming from not having it?

Abe: Well, when you see it and it comes instantly, it means what you see and how you feel and how you vibrate [are] already there. But when you are working to raise your vibration and it's still not coming, it means there's still something stuck in your craw. And what it always is, is a keener awareness of what is than of what's coming. And that's why -- we really want you all to hear this, it will soothe so much and bring so many things that you've been wanting for so long so quickly into your experience -- if you can find a way of tweaking your perception into loving where you are anyway. And people worry about that -- many of you are afraid that if you feel appreciation for your life as it is with missing pieces that then the Universe will say, "Well, she's happy, let's deal with someone more needy," and it isn't that way at all. You get yourself into vibrational sync and then all good things come to you.
