Then…“There is no shortage. And any attention to shortage of something wanted will always produce negative emotion within you because your guidance is letting you know that you have strayed from your broader basic understanding of abundance and Well-Being. Whether you are focused upon the shortage of money—or seeing yourself as having only so many years to live (and so each day that is expended is one day closer to the end of your years)—that feeling of decline is contrary to your broader understanding of the Eternal nature of your Being.” Abraham [Excerpted from Money and the Law of Attraction on 8/31/08]
Often as we speak with people who might have a challenge in the area of manifesting abundance in their lives we discover that, understandably, their major focus is upon that large and menacing black hole that is called lack along with all the other adjectives and synonyms that reinforce the “I don’t have” experience. Of course, when someone comes in to speak with us, it is necessary to set the stage as to why they are there with us. What we then discover, many times, is that what they tell us so as to set the stage for our time together, is the story that they tell over and over again. It is the story that is at the center of their experience. What is then happening is the vibrational energy that is intertwined within their story, the more it is told, becomes the all-encompassing magnetic energy that looks for reinforcement within their world of effects to reinforce the accuracy or truth behind their story. Abraham says that we can do the same thing with age. Once we understand the process behind how things move from cause to effect within our lives, we can begin to change the cause, meaning the story we tell or the focus we maintain. Not always easy especially if this is our first exposure to understanding the Law of Attraction or how things find their way in our lives, for the “have not” story for many is engrained in their words and thoughts from the moment they wake up to when they lay in bed and sleep. This has to change, for the definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting the outcome to change.
Suggest: Find someone who you can talk to who isn’t stuck in a “have not” space, and with them begin to verbalize a story of fulfillment and success, maybe beginning to speak and internalize something as basic and simple as “Things always work out for me!” Talk with them about the logic behind why this has to be true within a Universe that only holds abundance for everyone. Then, expand the affirmation to things that are specific to your moment. Don’t reach out too far, but become comfortable with telling this story rather than the “have not” story. What is happening is gradually a vibration base that is in alignment with your dream and desire is being formed and the Universe unerringly fulfills it. Start the process and make a commitment to being a corporative component to its Truth and Reality in your life. Start with a happy-serious commitment.
“When we say to you, make peace with where you are, we want you to make peace with where everyone is; we want you to make peace with the world events; we want you to make peace with where your friend is in relationship with where your friend wants to be. We want it to be all right with you where anybody is.” Abraham [Excerpted from Tarrytown, NY on 5/14/05]
Why? It is only from a consciousness of peace that our path can be fully receptive to all the greater good that is abundant, yet sometimes not seen. This does not mean that we disengage from actions as seem appropriate for us? Certainly not, but only generated from an inner place of peace, for it is only from this center that we can be part of the solution of greater good. Our Center is always poised and peaceful, and to mentally touch this Center gives us conscious awareness of the platform upon which our greater good can thrive. Even with “world events”? If in place of peace we feel anger or fear, then this becomes our inner platform for these negative energies to produce after their kind in our lives. Even here we can become a peaceful “first responder” and inwardly respond with love.
Is your Spiritual Journey a spectator “sport” or one of active and conscious involvement? We use the term center to circumference, and if this has meaning, then it can be used as a tool to enhance transformational moments within absolutely everything. It is a term that reminds us to never go into moments of discovery, decision, conversation and commitment without first consciously acknowledging our connectivity with Infinite Mind (God, Source). It has been likened by some to putting on a helmet prior to getting on a fast motorcycle as sometimes the journey of life within a physical body can seem fast, and on occasion treacherous. It is the practice of never going out in just the awareness of the often vulnerable human garment. A brief focus on our “center” doesn’t require a lengthy process if only to inwardly speak I am a spiritual being, living in a spiritual universe and governed by spiritual law that then results in a blessing upon our circumference moments that taps into even more wonderful things. Begin your day with this reminder and make a game out of how often it can be done; eventually it will be as natural and normal as fastening a seat belt.
“From the physical perspective, most of you believe that your beliefs are the right ones, and if you disagree with someone then they must be wrong. But from the Nonphysical standpoint, it is not seen as right and wrong.
It is seen as the powerful diversity that stimulates thought, and from the Nonphysical perspective, you enjoy that diversity.” Abraham [Excerpted from Orlando, FL on 2/15/97]
When we know that we are so very right, this is a challenging statement, yet it is a feeling of being right for us that we must remember, and not license to impose this rightness upon another no more than we would want another to dictate to us what is right for us.
“Since nothing matters to you other than your personal alignment with your individual goals or desires, then that is where our work is. We are not here to debate the rightness or the wrongness of what you, or anyone, chooses. We are not taking sides, for or against, anything. We are here to help you understand that your life can be as wonderful or as horrible as you allow it to be. It all depends upon the thoughts that you practice. And therein lies the basis of anyone’s success: How much do I practice thoughts that bring me joy, and how much do I practice thoughts that bring me pain?” Abraham [Excerpted from San Francisco, CA on 3/8/03]
We are the creators of our own reality – we may not like that as it is first seen on the radar screen of our understanding, or even long after it first appears, but it is nevertheless true, and we wouldn’t want it another way, for what is the alternative? Luck, accident and chance, and that doesn’t work no more than 1 plus 1 no longer equals 2…or sometimes and not another, and we never know when. Or, the nasty man in the red suit lurking out there, is another choice. Can’t be. As co-creator, what, then, is our input into this process? It is something we are doing all the time, and ignorance of the process doesn’t excuse how it works. It is thought, for thought forms the matrix or mold that then Spirit (God/Source) rushes in to fulfill. And, we are not without help along the way. All thought carries with it emotions which can be defined as positive or negative, and only we know the difference for us. If we find ourselves in a place of thought-focus that isn’t happy and positive, stay there and the request for more of a similar nature is asked for. Recognize what is happening and do anything to either imagine something happy, or choose something that returns positive feelings and do it quickly.
