“Your joy factor will remain constant as you are continually refining your ideas of what you want, and that’s why it is so important for you to get everybody else out of the equation. They’ve got their own game going on; they don’t understand your game. Give them a break; stop asking them what they think. Start paying attention to how you feel. Joy will be yours immediately, and everything else that you have ever thought would make you happy, will start flowing, seemingly effortlessly, into your experience.” Abraham [Excerpted from Asheville, NC on 10/25/03]
How many people are you seeking to please? And, equally important, are you seeking to inject your feelings of approval or disapproval into another’s life? Certainly, if asked, a response is in order, but not a response that manipulates or controls another so as to please something in you that just knows what is best for him or her. If asked by another what you think about a choice they are seeking to make, suggest your response to be “Thinking about it, does it feel good…does it bring feelings of happy anticipation? Then you have your answer.” And, then get back to the scenario (game) that is playing called “my life” and apply the same principle. There is always something at the core of your being that is all Wisdom and all-knowing…you don’t need the approval of anyone to unfold what feels good and joy-filled. Certainly, if employed, there might very well be an approval factor, but what Abraham is talking about are the personal choices we all make as we interact with person, place, event or thing. The analogy of another’s journey being like a movie that has its beginning back so far it can’t be counted and will continue on into infinity is a very good analogy. And another if asked, or even if intruding unasked, cannot successfully step in and make decisions for you for they don’t understand the “movie” Abraham calls your game of life, nor do you understand another’s–you are only seeing a brief frame of their game of life that only they alone can measure. “Thinking about it, does it feel good? Is the only answer to a question that is asked. And, if not asked, stay out of another’s life with your brand of wisdom that just knows what is best for them…you don’t.
“A belief is nothing more than a chronic pattern of thought, and you have the ability—if you try even a little bit—to begin a new pattern, to tell a new story, to achieve a different vibration, to change your point of attraction. The Law of Attraction is responding to your vibration, and you can easily change your vibrational point of attraction by visualizing the lifestyle you desire and holding your attention upon those images until you begin to feel relief, which will indicate that a true vibrational shift has occurred.” Excerpted from Money and the Law of Attraction on 8/31/08 [Our Love Esther (Abraham and Jerry)]
Slightly rephrased, the above quote could have been almost directly lifted from Psycho Cybernetics. Said another way, our present life is a manifestation of what we might call beliefs held – hence we can change that and hence change our life. Perhaps not everything at once, but we can start the process by consciously starting to tell our story based on what we want our life to do and be…we know this, yet we need to begin for if we don’t do it consciously, past traditions of thought will take over. What do you want to manifest in life? Begin to infuse it as vividly as possible until it becomes a belief. Use tools. Use a treasure map. Keep a journal. Write and daily add to a list of things to appreciate.
You cannot look at that which you do not want and not join and perpetuate that vibration. Take your attention from that which is not in harmony with who you are, and in taking your attention from it, your “now vibration” will adjust to who you really are, and then you can uplift others. Abraham [Excerpted from Portland, OR on 6/10/97]
How easy it is to get sucked into things, events, and conversations that concentrate on what is wrong, bad, evil (I use that word just as an attention getter) and similar without realizing that in this vibration based Universe we are vectoring that vibrational frequency into consciousness and the one Law does its perfect work as it gives us more of what we have called wrong and bad. We are learning to consciously use the one Law to our benefit and advantage as we #1, understand how it works, and then #2 placing our attention on what we want to be, do and have. We learn to tell the story of not necessarily what is, but of what we want everything to be and to stay with that energy package until it responds with an emotional chill that feels good. Find a good friend who is on the path and practice telling the story of what and how you want things to be and to then speak supportive words back to him/er. A treasure map is a great exercise as the images and words reinforce how this process works. If we have had a habit of dwelling on the bad and wrong, and telling our organ recitals then it will take a little time to round the corner toward our goals, desires and plans, but it must happen, for it is Law.

Any beliefs that are no longer serving you, yet are held only to surface at the most inopportune time? “If you go outside with wet hair, you’ll catch a cold” might be one, but a fairly harmless belief. Some beliefs are not that harmless if they are based on unworthiness and a God that is anything other than omnipresent Love. Explore this…if there is anything in our lives that is not fulfilling our goals, dreams, desires and plans, then somewhere held in consciousness there is a untrue belief that isn’t being forthrightly challenged as it occasionally nudges itself into your awareness. It is okay to do this; it won’t make the Truth of you less in the Kingdom. However, if it provides a direction for energy other than for fulfilling things, then it isn’t serving you. Life is supposed to be fulfilling and good for such is the nature of God, hence it is your nature as well and will manifest unless you (we) have other plans. This is why things like Treasure Maps are very helpful. This is why positive visualizing is a powerful tool. The true story is told of Catherine Ponder (prolific writer on prosperity principles), she went to the Rolls-Royce dealership in Palm Springs and asked permission to often sit in one of the cars on the showroom floor…to just periodically sit for a period of time. “Mrs. Ponder, don’t you want to sit in the driver’s seat?” “No, that’s where my chauffeur will be sitting” Ponder was said to have replied. What was she doing? Creative visualizing. She knows the power of visualizing the lifestyle she wanted. The Rolls? In her garage. Consider spending time doing something that feels fulfilling and soon this vibrational shift in consciousness will have to be made manifest…it is Law.
