[B]Definitions of Some Key Abraham Terms:
Abrahamsters A playful nickname for people who study and follow the Teachings of Abraham.

Contrast Abraham intend this word to simply mean "variety." It is often incorrectly used as shorthand for "unpleasant experience."

Croak Abraham's intentionally disrespectful term for our "death" experience.

Driftwood Evidence you are letting in a desire. Not an "official" word from Abraham but commonly used on the Forum.

Estherham Slang for the blended channeling of Abraham by Esther Hicks.

Feel better The essential message that Abraham teach. "Feel better" means "feel better than you have been feeling". Depending on where you at on the Scale, "better" might just mean "less crappy" and that counts! As you "feel better" (whatever that might mean to you from whatever you are), you will know you've achieved "better" by your feeling of Relief.

Fred In a famous clip, the HS spoke about the guy she was trying to "get." She said, "Let's call him Fred". Since then, the term "Fred" has come to refer to any not-yet-achieved desire that we really, really want.

Going General A strategy and a Process to slow down unwanted momentum. As we get more specific (with our words and our details), we add to our momentum. So, when we have unwanted momentum, it serves us to focus, to think and to talk about that topic in more general terms. The most general perspective we can take is to focus on the emotional basis of the topic. We can move our focus from Specifically Negative (fast unwanted momentum) to Generally Negative (slow unwanted momentum) to Generally Positive (slow wanted momentum) to Specifically Positive (fast wanted momentum) with just a little bit of determination and some focus.

Grid A new, evolving metaphor for the Vibrational Set-point or the Point of Attraction (POA). Also called Vibrational Atmosphere or Vibrational Climate (See "What is a Grid? (http://www.abeforum.com/showthread.php?37897-What-is-a-Grid)" for more details.)

"I Can Say it Better" A recent Process where you edit your statements (even the ones where the words are "pretty") so that you find your exact desired vibration. A game that Esther has taken to playing in her conversations and in her Focus Wheels.

Observing Taking in an experience with any or all of your physical senses.

Peanut Gallery Anyone who is outside of you. Typically used in the sense of using the guidance of the Peanut Gallery in place of your own personal emotional guidance.

Step 4 This new step to the original 3 Step Process of Creation describes the state when we practice Step 3 chronically and consistently in our lives.

Upstream/Downstream Introduced in APOE, this metaphor describes resistance in terms of whether we're flowing with the Stream of Well-Being (Downstream) or paddling against it (Upstream). "Nothing that you want is Upstream." --Abraham, APOE

Vibrational Atmosphere or Vibrational Climate Same as Point of Attraction. An expanded evolution of the idea of the Grid.

Vibrational Currency “You have a vibrational currency that you mean to spend. It is a vibrational currency. In other words, there are things that money can’t buy. There are things that action can’t accomplish. There are things that vibrational alignment and your focus can accomplish! That is a vibrational currency, and the nice thing about beginning to focus this vibrational currency is that you all have equal access to it." --Abraham, 9/28/13, Stamford, CT.

Vibrational Escrow You've asked for your desire, and Source created it and it exists. It is being held for you in "vibrational escrow" until such time that you line up with it vibrationally so that you can translate its vibration into your physical experience. Same as Vortex. (See AAIIG for more details.)

Vortex Same as Vibrational Escrow or Vibrational Reality. Also a book from Abraham-Hicks. The Vortex is where all clarity, appreciation, joy, and excitement reside. It's where everything you've determined that you prefer is.

Waking Up Process Abraham's newest way to start the day. You can find detailed instructions on how to do this simple Process here (http://www.abeforum.com/showthread.php?34077-who-is-doing-the-waking-up-process&p=828405#post828405).

What-is Abraham's term for the manifested reality the vibration of which we translate with our physical senses. This what-is reality is "old news."

Abe's Coinage & Sound-Bites
"Cleaning it up"
"HS: ...I decided, to clean this up...
Abe: And we would use the words: GENERAL it up." --Abraham, 4/28/12, Dallas, TX
