    “Now your work is to play on the beach.
    Your work is to release resistance.
    Your work is to appreciate and bask
    and find clarity
    and look for delicious ease and flow.

    In other words,
    your work is
    to look for feelings that feel good.
    Your work is non-work.
    Your work is to relax and release.
    Relax and Release, relax and release.

    And it is our promise to you
    that you will find all of those answers.
    They are all queued up.
    You just gotta get in the vortex!”

    "You couldnīt POSSIBLY work enough to earn all what you deserve.
    You just canīt possibly do it.
    There arenīt enough hours in the day and nobody will pay you so much money.
    IOW- you HAVE, you HAVE to trust the universe!
    You have to allow the Vortex, to yield it to you, to yourself.
    Or, the Vortex to cue it up for you,
    and you to yield it to yourself,
    by feeling the fear and recognicing how bogus it is.

    And by acknowledging what it is:
    "Itīs me, thinking an opposite thought of what the knowledge of my Vortex holds."
    And if you do that and do that and do that and do that-
    the Vortex will cue up things for you.

    We would never do anything that didn't make our heart sing!...
    And so you say, "But that choice doesn't seem to be there.
    There's this choice that doesn't make my heart sing,
    or sort of staying where I am. So what should I do?"

    And we say, we'd hang around and wait for something
    that makes our heart sing
    —and then, we'd jump in with all four feet.

    About "not doing the work" and not being organized.


    Q: Okay, my question is: I’ve been really struggling with being very disorganized.
    I have a business and on my desk I’ve got a stack of business cards
    that should be entered into my database….


    Abe: Why?


    Q: So that I can keep track of these people and…


    Abe: Why?


    Q: …and market them….
    (Brief pause.) Why are they still there?


    Abe: Why do you need to do something different with them than you are doing?


    Q: Because I’m not reaching out to this group of people
    to stay in front of them, to keep myself marketed to them….


    Abe: Do you have plenty to do already?


    Q: Yes.


    Abe: Then why do you need more?
    (Laughter from audience.)


    Q: Well, I want to continue growing my business. And it’s not just that,
    I mean, you know, I’ve got papers piled up here and there,
    and I feel like the fact that I’m disorganized is holding me back.


    Abe: We agree with that, but when you hate organizing, then organizing will hold you back, too.


    Q: Uh-huh. Yes, I hate it.
    (Laughter.)


    Abe: And the Universe has a way of yielding to you irrespective of your organizational skills.
    In other words, the Universe doesn’t say, “When you get organized, we’ll yield to you.”
    (Laughter.)
    The Universe doesn’t say, “A clean desk is required before you get the good stuff.”
    The Universe says to you, “When you want it, we yield it to you,
    and if you’re in this place of allowing it, then you’re gonna let it in.”

    And so there are different styles -- there are those who need to be organized in order to stand it.
    In other words, clutter just makes them crazy.
    Well, we would encourage them to get organized because they need it for alignment.
    But if organizing is as frustrating as you say it is, and if you’re making that stack work,
    it is our suspicion that you could get your hands pretty quickly on anything on your desk
    if it really mattered to you.

    If it really mattered, you could find it reasonably quickly.
    In other words, we think it is more of a time saver to just find it when you need it —
    the Universe will help you -
    than for you to spend all that time trying to get organized and maintain a lifestyle
    that you have not produced or that has never been important to you.


    Q: Mmm. Wow, that’s awesome. That’s powerful.
    (Laughter.)


    Abe: The only thing that is sticking for you is
    that you are beating up on yourself for not being organized,
    which is what is causing the resistance.
    But if you will say, “Ah, I’m like a mad scientist,” or,
    “I’m like a creative genius where the energy just flows through me,”
    -because you are that!

    You don’t have to be like someone else is in order to have your success.
    You’re having your success. And more is coming.


    Q: Okay. I was wondering if that might be tied in,
    ’cause I was also dealing with some financial issues, and my bank accounts are disorganized -
    - my personal account, my business account, money’s going back and forth between those two;
    my personal and business credit cards, you know, it’s like wherever I need the money from
    it’s being pulled here to go there and being pulled here to go there.

    Is that related to this -- I mean, is disorganization in this area causing me financial distress
    or are those just still not...


    Abe: Well, we think the disorganization that you have been practicing
    is sort of evident there, but we do not think one is the cause of the other.
    We think that the way you feel about organizing is the cause of all of them.
    But here is the thing that we really want you to hear: are you making it work?
    In other words, do you have a sense of where the money is?


    Q: I... not in a way that I could explain to the IRS.
    (Laughter.)
    But, yeah, I know where money is and which bank account has some in it
    at that moment and which one might need it later.


    Abe: Well, if you ever needed to explain it, all of the records are there.
    In other words, money in and money out is not a difficult thing to explain.
    Even when you spend something on your credit card, there is a record of it.
    And so at any point that any reconciliation is necessary, it is there for you.

    The reason that we’re playing with you here a little bit
    is because we want to soothe you into this place where you are no longer beating up on yourself
    for your organizational style.
    And we would call it a style, because it’s sort of the way that you are moving,
    and the reason that we are not wanting you to all of a sudden
    begin to try to tighten up on yourself and shape up and do things
    in a more regimented way, in the way that would please someone else,
    is because creative juices very often are inhibited.

    In other words, sometimes there is a greater sacrifice to creative flow
    when you get all organized, than when you just allow things to flow.

    So the question that we are putting to you is: do your organizational skills,
    particularly the ones that are relating to money, cause you trauma?
    In other words, are you bouncing checks? Are you getting late notices?
    Are you financially behind things as a result of what some would call "irresponsibility"?
    Or are you managing in your style?


    Q: Yes to both. I mean, it has caused me to end up bouncing a check
    or getting a late fee and things like that.
    And yeah, I think I’ve gotten to the point where that doesn’t bother me.


    Abe: Well, you see, this is hard for many to hear
    but when you get into this creative flow where you’re asking
    and the Universe is yielding, you reach this place where you don’t sweat the small stuff.
    And keeping track of what you did is a little bit of sweating the small stuff.

    Now, we know your government requires it of you to a certain degree,
    we know that there are records and reconciliations that are required,
    but we have to say to you: far, far, far more importance is put upon that
    than we would if we were standing in your physical shoes-
    because you spend your time doing things you do not want to do,
    get yourself out of sync with the flow -
    - when you get in the flow, so much avalanches in that,
    it becomes unimportant how it is managed.


    It’s sort of like saying, “I have more money than I have any sensible use for,
    so now I don’t have to keep such a close eye on my bank account.”
    So -- oh, there is so much disagreement in this room. It is great fun. (Laughter.)

    Esther balances her checkbook to the penny.
    She cannot bear it if it does not balance.
    She will stay up all night to find it if it is out of balance.
    And she feels uncomfortable while she is doing it, because she knows
    -with every fibre of her being, that it is a waste of her precious life experience.

    And yet she has this thing that says, “I must be able to account for all of this.”
    And what we would say to her is:
    if you will relax and allow, everything falls into place.


    Jerry read an article to her.
    A woman keeping her checking account for 16 years rounded everything up
    or down to the nearest dollar. If she wrote a check for $10.75, she entered $11.00.
    It was easier for her to add it in her head. And after 16 years of doing this,
    her husband found out about it and was appalled.
    And spent 6 months reconciling the accounts.
    And it was 72 cents difference.
    (Laughter.)


    And so what we are really saying to you is:
    find the place of ease and let your creative juices flow,
    and let everything else take care of itself.


    Q: I don’t even balance my, I don’t even keep track of my check book.
    I just have some sort of a guesstimate of what I think is available.


    Abe: The bank is keeping track.
    (Laughter.)


    Q: Right. That’s what I figure.


    Abe: And you can call them any time you want, and ask them how you’re doing.


    Q: Yes. Right.


    Abe: And you have an awareness of approximately what’s outstanding since you last called.
    We think you can figure it out close enough.


    Q: And that should be okay. And that’s not causing any problems,
    then, as far as money and things flowing to me? It’s just two different things.


    Abe: Your guilt about it causes problems. The situation itself doesn’t matter.


    Q: Okay.


    Abe: In other words, as you say, “I’m a bad person because I don’t make my bed,”
    then you better make your bed or get over thinking that you’re a bad person-
    because you don’t.


    Q:
    (Laughing, amazed) How did you know?
    (Laughter.)


    Abe: In other words, either make it or say it’s all right that you don’t,
    but don’t keep yourself in that tension place, you see. Yes.

    What we would do, if we were standing in your physical shoes,
    we would look for our own positive aspects. We would say,
    “I’m alive, I’m energetic, I’m enthusiastic about life. There is so much that I want to do.
    There are so many things that do attract me, there are so many things I’m interested in.
    And I’m taking a big bite out of life, and the things that matter do get my attention.
    Everything’s percolating along just right, and I’m becoming more and more expansive.

    And at any time that I want, if it’s really important,
    I can hire someone to deal with all of that stuff.” And just relax.


    Q: Awesome.


    Abe: There are those who get out and live life, and there are those
    who stay home and clean their house.
    (Laughter.)
    And there are those that call one virtuous and one whimsical and irresponsible.
    And there are those like us that call it your choice in the way you live your life.
    You get to choose. Nobody else.

    The only thing that matters is your alignment between you and You.
    That’s all, you see. So ease your own mind and bring yourself into alignment.

    If you really, really, really want things to be tidy,
    if you really, really want things to be reconciled and organized,
    then you’ve been launching rockets of desire and the Universe has been hearing that.
    And as you chill out and stop beating up on yourself
    and noticing how ‘irresponsible’ and disorganized you are,
    which is holding you in a pattern that is not letting the Universe yield to you
    what you need to get organized -

    - in other words, as long as you’re frustrated about not being organized,
    that means that frustration itself is the indicator that you’re holding yourself in a place
    where even though the Universe is trying to yield the solution to you,
    you can’t get it, you see.

    So that’s why we’re saying make it a non-issue. Say it doesn’t matter.
    De-activate that and everything that you need or want,
    if you really want it, will flow easily to you.

    So later on, after you’ve really chilled out about this,
    and you have someone keeping your house and
    you have someone keeping your books, then you can say to us,
    “Well, Abraham, I guess it did matter because
    when I relaxed all of that came to me.”

    But if -- five years from now, after you’ve chilled out
    and you’re happier than you’ve ever been, and you still don’t have anyone
    keeping your house and keeping your books —
    then you can say, “Well, I guess I really didn’t want that because it didn’t happen.”

    Because if you want it and you relax, it will happen. That’s big.
    No matter what it is -- if you really want it and if you get out of the way of it, it will happen.
    It must be. It is law. It can be no other way.
    It’s the way this Universe is established, you see.

    We did not find you confusing. We found you easy to read.
    We found the question within you clear. Do you feel the power of our answer?
    We’re coming forth in response to the clarity of your desire.
    You’re clear.
    (Laughter.)
    You’re just confused, because you think you’re supposed to want
    what others want you to want.

    They say, “Cleanliness is next to godliness.”
    (Laughter.) And we say,
    think of this random Universe where everything is possible,
    and understand that the organizational skills belong to Law of Attraction.
    And if you will relax and allow LOA to do the organization, the managing,
    then you can spend your time doing the things that please you
    and that make things happen for you. Yes.


    So next time someone asks you, how you’re doing on your checkbook,
    say, “Law of Attraction is managing my financial affairs.”
    (Laughter.)
    “I have a financial manager.” “Oh, really! Is he good?”
    “The best. God-like.”
    (Laughter.)

    "When wild horses couldnīt keep you away from doing it"



    "when youīv learned to manage your vibration,
    to sort of settle in for the sake of comfort of it...
    ...there is something SO MUCH BETTER than comfort.
    do you know what it is? EXHILARATION.

    But because comfort is much better than tension, there is a tendency
    to find a comfortable space and just sort of maintain that comfort.
    Which means, explore less contrast,
    because you wanna take fewer risks,
    because you donīt wanna go back to that uncomfortable place
    that you remember from before.

    So, our message is to you- you canīt go back.
    There is no going back.
    No worry about EVER going back to a less comfortable place.

    You are where you are, and moving FORWARDS,
    and there is so much MORE exhilarating experience ahead of you.

    And we donīt think that exploring contrast
    should even be categorized as risk-taking!

    Because, when you know who you are,
    when you know about the vibrational reality,
    when you know about your emotions (...)


    then THERE IS NO RISK, EVER!
    The potential for soaring in ecstasy
    is SO MUCH BIGGER AND BETTER!

    (...) here is our powerful message to you:
    Get into the Vortex,
    and then do everything you have time for."



    from the clip "Abraham Hicks ~ Are some stuck between physical and non-physical?"

    You WANT to do!


    Guest:
    So, I'd like to continue some other stuff that we talked about this morning
    and particularly interested in prosperity, receptivity and doing.
    I have a tendency, I think, to go into the doing-aspect.

    Abraham:
    Yeah you do ... it’s alright, you wanna do!
    Doing is really fun, and doing in the flow is way more fun though,
    than doing not in the flow; and doing because you can't stop yourself from doing it
    because the momentum is such, is way more fun,
    and way more productive than doing it because it needs to be done,
    but of course you want action.

    Action is this manifested point out here on the leading edge,
    action is way fun, you just wanna do it from a vibrational aligned standpoint,
    not from a vibrational mis-aligned standpoint. That's all.

    Action from the path of least resistance,
    not action from the path of more resistance.

    full transcript, including the outtake, above


    "Guest:
    So, I'd like to continue some other stuff that we talked about this morning
    and particularly interested in prosperity, receptivity and doing.
    I have a tendency, I think, to go into the doing-aspect.

    Abraham:

    Action from the path of least resistance,
    not action from the path of more resistance.

    Guest:
    We talk a little bit about prosperity ...
    I understand working for money,
    on rare occasions I have found money in the street...

    Abraham:
    Now, we're just gonna interrupt you here for just a moment
    because you've laid out the perfect place for us to say this.

    Guest: Okay ...

    Abraham:
    Working for money is like motivation as compared to inspiration.
    Working for money is the action part and,
    certainly there's always action involved
    in the allowing the money into your experience,
    we're not trying to guide you away from action,
    but the emphasis is on the energy work,
    the alignment work, wobble free work
    and then the inspired action;
    then that's a whole different thing than working for money.

    Guest:
    So in terms of ways that money can come to you, prosperity,
    so there's working for money, or even inspired working for money.

    Abraham:
    We like the way this conversation is going,
    already we want to head it off, we like it so much...
    because before we go there with you- we will go there with you if you want to-
    there's nothing wrong with going where you think you wanna go, really;

    but what we're talking about is this movement from the Vortex,
    where it`s the unseen into the bank account where it is seen,
    in other words this transfer from vibration into material.
    So this is what we're really talking about.

    So when you say, you started to lay out the ways that that can happen
    and we want you to understand there is an infinite of ways
    that you are not even considering, that you couldn't even possibly consider.
    The best you can make out of that bulky general list,
    but ohhh... when you get tuned into this,
    and the ideas start flowing, the flow of energy and the flow the economics,
    of love, prosperity... unlimited… unlimited resources.

    Look even at your economics of today and think about
    how robust it is in comparison to a hundred years ago;
    and a hundred years ago no one could have conceived of the avenues
    through which the abundance flows or the height to which
    the abundance has swollen, or the degree to which the abundance
    affects the details of your life experience,

    so let's not make a puny little list,
    let's just call it unlimited and open ourselves to the ideas
    that are ripe for the plucking now.

    Guest:
    I guess my question is, in other word, I was going down a list of things
    that sort of fit inside my rational mind in my ability to conceive.

    Abraham:
    Because you can equate the action with the receiving.

    Guest:
    Right, so I'm asking about how to open myself up more,
    be more receptive to unseen and...

    Abraham:
    by saying things like:
    "there are way more ways than I can think of,
    right now and putting myself in a corner, where I lay out five things as limiting,
    I'm not going to do that anymore,
    I'm going to accept the unlimitedness of it,
    I'm going to accept the rightness of ideas that I am about to receive."

    -It’s hard for a doer, isn't it?

    Guest: Yes.

    Abraham:
    Hard for somebody who's used to just getting in and doing it,
    it's annoying when you do and others don't do,
    but those who are really doing aren't doing,
    those that are really receiving, have got this vibrational flow going.

    Now just answer this as you believe it to be.
    There's only a slight trap here for you, but answer this is as you believe it to be ...
    Do you believe that currently your prosperity,
    and we're talking about financial prosperity,
    you believe right now that your financial prosperity is tied to your action?

    Well, you know the right answer and everybody else was just quiet,
    because most of you would say: well this is how I earn my living,
    I exchange this action for this income and so,
    let us lay the trap a little tighter for you.

    If you stop doing today what you've been doing,
    will your money flow tomorrow the way it's been flowing?
    -Is there anybody out there?
    -If you didn't go to work tomorrow will your money flow?
    -And if you didn't go to work tomorrow for those of you,
    who if you don't go to work tomorrow and don't do what you usually do
    and your money doesn't flow... then what? then what?

    In other words, does your money feel dependent on your action?

    Audience: Yes.

    Abraham:
    So, thank you for being honest.
    Well for most that is normal in your economy of today.
    Isn't that you have trained yourself or been hired to to do something
    in exchange or you have positioned yourself to do something in exchange.
    Economics is about that, isn't it?
    It’s about providing service for one another;
    aren’t your economics all about your interaction with each other?
    Here's another question for you...

    -If there was no one else on the planet,
    would your business or means of making money be necessary-
    and if there were no one else to participate with you in any way,
    goods or services, would there be any reason for you to provide them?

    -Can you step back far enough to acknowledge,
    that your interaction with one another is what the basis that economics is all about?
    Can you step far enough back to acknowledge that economy rests on,
    rides on, depends on, at the bases of is serving one another in some way?

    Audience: Yes.

    Abraham:
    Do you believe that the ways to serve one another have all been figured out?

    Audience: No.

    Abraham:
    Do you believe that there are desires in the ethers, on the minds,
    on the lips, the hopes and dreams of the masses
    that are still to be discovered?

    Audience: Yes.

    Abraham:
    Do you believe that you have the ability to position yourself
    as you choose to, to be the beneficiary of the satisfaction of serving others?
    We tricked you, didn't we?

    Because what we want you to embrace first,
    is that your economics and how they flow to you
    are about the energy that you are flowing outward to others,

    in other words, it's what you are offering,
    what you're receiving and what you're offering are the same.

    They are vibrationally equivalent, and if you can think in terms of the service
    that you're offering, now we offer that word carefully,
    because you misunderstand it every time someone uses the word,
    but in this conversation we're having, where we've agreed
    that economics is all about serving one another, in other words,
    it's what it all is, then as you acknowledge that your contribution,
    what you are offering to this mix, is a value to others...
    once you go there, now you are understanding economics
    is a whole new place that can serve you in a whole new way.


    So now, we'll ask you, are you there yet?
    Do you acknowledge that it is your service to others?
    So now, in what ways do you serve?
    You were going to make a short list a little while ago,
    but in what ways do you serve others?

    You serve others by getting energy flowing.
    You serve others by tapping into the stream of the infinite intelligence,
    you serve others by tuning in, tapping in to the frequency,
    this high power frequency, you serve others by understanding the path of least resistance,
    you serve others by being wobble free,
    you serve others by tapping in, not just infinite intelligence,
    but to infinite prosperity, to infinite abundance of energy, to infinite ideas.

    If you're serving others,
    then isn't the idea that really is at the basis of most service, you see?

    When you loosen up these cobwebs and you start acknowledging
    that you could be in the right place at the right time in more conversations,
    in more opportunities to uplift, if you would put your attention upon the energy
    that you are receiving, which then you will be flowing...
    but here's the most interesting thing about economics,
    we already said it to you, but we're gonna say it to you again...

    you don't get it until you give it.

    Because it is the asking for it, that summons it.
    So when you get into an attitude of service,
    which is asking for it on the behalf of others,
    now you open a really big portal, really big Vortex of abundance.

    And that's really the place that you wanna start with all of this:
    In what ways can I be a value to others?
    Now lets start generally... Are you of more value to others
    when you are ornery or happy?

    Well that's not the difficult thing to understand,
    and yet it's usually not a question that you ask in relationship to economics, is it?
    Because you're thinking in terms of your action, not in terms of your attitude,
    but your attitude, your mood, your vibration is everything
    in terms of what you receive and in terms of what you give.

    So, if you're thinking in terms of being the portal through which all of this flows,
    you acknowledge that the world is out there asking.
    Do you acknowledge that their life experiences are what are causing them
    to identify what the next economic booms will be?

    You know that there are economic booms in the Vortex right now
    that haven't even been discovered by those who will feel the inspiration
    to provide the response to the boom that has been asked for?

    So does it overwhelm you to think about being the creative genius,
    that is inspired to that? We're not asking all of you to be the next Bill Gates...
    but why not?
    We're not asking you to be the next innovator of the next big invention...
    but why not?

    But what we are asking you to do is acknowledge that there's infinite energy
    flowing and enough abundance will flow, to serve you
    in the way that you are wanting to be served,
    once you get into the flow of economics.
    It’s all about energy!"

    Donīt "move forwards in fear"!

    There are those that say, if you do the uncomfortable thing long enough,
    it will become comfortable.
    But we are really not encouragers of that.
    We are encouragers of coming into alignment, and then taking the action.

    We are encouragers always of getting rid of the fear;
    we would never want you to keep doing things that you feel fearful about.
    And maybe the path of least resistance is just not get on the horse.
    Maybe the path of least resistance is to get on a different horse—

    but we would never move forward in fear.
