Thread: Looking back over 2016

  1. #1

    Looking back over 2016

    So, I thought that I would make a "success story" post about all the "major" things that I manifested over this past year in 2016.

    A little background. Three years ago, I was living on the floor of my friend's tiny apartment & I had no job. During the day I would borrow his computer & go sit in the library & surf the internet.
    Then one day, somehow, I came across the Secret movie. The one with Abe in it. I loved the movie so much that I started to find out more about Abraham Hicks & immediately started to put things into action.
    I decided I wanted a few things after watching that movie. First, I wanted to get rid of $17,000 of debt. Second, I wanted to be able to have income that I didn't have to work for. Third, I wanted lots of cash in my saving account. That was 2014.
    Well within a few months, I did get a job, another side source of income (that I didn't have to work for), a truck, a place to live & was officially "back on my feet".


    Fast forward to 2016. Well, this year had a lot of "ups". First, I got inspired to take action on something that was going through my mind & immediately it became fruitful. I don't remember the exact numbers, but I began making so much money on this idea that I quit my job....however, after a few months, I decided that I wanted to go back to my job, but only part-time; trust me, it takes getting used to sitting at home all day because your friends are all at work. I just wasn't ready for that part of the manifestation, but now I am.

    Anyhow, in 2016, I achieved those 3 dreams that I've had (I still have a few more though). First, I got rid of $17,000 of debt within 4 months of finally getting focused on "acting" on the inspiration to take a few chances (before you ask, I'm still a far cry from being a millionaire...but it's on my list). Also, remember, I was homeless & jobless a few years ago when I had that dream. So, not only was it miraculous that someone could get rid of a mountain of debt in 4 months, but also to go from homeless/jobless to a position to pay off that debt within 3 years.

    Second, in 2016, I achieved 2 streams of income that I don't have to work for. It totals less than the obscene amount that I was making early in the year, however I've decided that I'm going to retire at the end of this month (my parents aren't even retirement age, btw) & focus on more spiritual endeavors. Really, why work for crazy amounts of money if you are happy with a normal amount of money? I rather take my happiness & leave the door open for winning at the casino...which back in 2011, I actually spent $20 at the casino & walked out with enough cash to buy my car at the time (although, I never correlated it to my happiness level until after I watched the Secret movie in 2014 when I was flat-broke & that car was long gone.)

    Third, for 2016, I achieved having a nice wad of cash in my savings account. I posted early about a few of the money manifestations, but overall, I made quite a bit of cash in 2016 which is going to stay in my savings account for now because I've learned that it's like the "go to the store with a $100 bill in the pocket" trick that Abe talks about; as long as I feel financially adequate/successful by having that money in the bank, then I attract more financial success....after all, I still want to become a millionaire & this is a tool that I'm using to allow it easier.

    Anyhow, I just wanted to post these 3 manifestations since they were 3 of the things that I dreamed up when I first saw Abe in the Secret movie. But I also had other manifestations in 2016, such as a newer car & such.

    Either way, I like writing down my success stories since I get so much inspiration from other people's success stories. It just feels really good to read success stories.

    ...also, I guess I should include some words of wisdom for others. Well, the best way that I found to follow Abe's teachings is by following what Abe says: "What I want is done on a vibrational level....I ask for it & it is done. It's done. It's done." In other words: it's done, now go do something that makes you feel happy.
    Really, 2 of the greatest things that I've found to learn are to have faith & to just be happy:

    1) Just have simple faith that it's going to happen; you don't need "faith to move mountains", you just need a simple faith that it's worked for others so it can also work for you. And occasionally remind yourself of that when you start to worry about your future. Don't overdo it with stressing yourself out by trying to make it happen. It's already done & it's already unfolding....and by the way, I also have faith that everything that happens (good or bad) is actually just the unfolding.

    2) I don't even strive for the ecstasy of "being in the vortex". I've found that small increases in my happiness work much better. For instance, if I feel bored, then all I do is just hum a song that makes me feel "less bored"...I don't even strive to feel "joy". I just inch myself up to "less bored"....by the way, I've found that it's better to just feel "a little happier" for most of your day, than struggling most of your day to get into the vortex. Yeah, you might achieve "vortexhood" in the end, but you wasted most of your day feeling stressed out & inadequate on your way there.

    Anyhow, I like reading long posts of other's success stories. So, I hope you all didn't mind reading this long post.

    this was a great read. i love your helpful words for others. its so true when you say its done now go do something you enjoy. once you appreciate the manifestation and feel it, you kind of release it out to the universe and it is just a matter of time before its given back universe style. no use in thinking about it any more!

    I just wanted to update this thread:

    I eventually moved to a foreign country & pursued spiritual goals all day long....however, it got really boring after a few months, lol.

    I decided I'm returning back to America & going to find a job that I like. Like I mentioned previously: passive income is good & fun, but sitting at home all day because everyone else is at work is boring as hell.

    Anyhow, someone mentioned that they got from Abe (not sure if it was paraphrased or verbatim, though) "And when you do GET WHAT YOU WANT? It will be orgasmic, but last only as long as an orgasm. The joy and pleasure do not last long, as all MANIFESTATIONS COME WITH CONTRAST." Not to mention that Abe also said that when you finally get a mansion, then you'll want to down-size to a smaller, comfy apartment.

    My point with all of this is that when you reach your goals, things don't magically just come to an end like in a movie. But rather, you get more goals & then when you reach them you get even more goals. It's a progression that keeps going throughout life. And that's what I'm learning, that all of life is a journey. That manifestations don't signal an end to the journey, but rather a beginning to a new, fresh journey.

    A wonderful journey, Rich King! And eternally evolving...
    Thanks for sharing, SUCH a good read.


    And here are some orgasmic quotes just for you


    Relaxed Expectation Orgasm


    In your enthusiasm for whatīs over there,
    you have exaggerated your relationship to being over there!

    Iow, when something SO WONDERFUL is over there,
    you canīt help but notice that youīr over here,
    and not over there, where it is.

    And so we want you to soften, or blur that distinction
    between where you are, and where you are going.

    As we visit with people about scripting,
    as we visit with them about seeing things as they want them to be-
    there is a fine line between beating the drum of how you want it to be-
    and having the backlash of just showing yourself,
    that youīr not over there, yet.

    You can TRUST,
    that everything that you lived has made a
    magnificent vibrational escrow.
    And you can TRUST, that LoA is calling you towards it.

    You are doing extremely well!
    And we are not wanting to put a damper on your enthusiasm for life AT ALL.
    But we DO want you to act less, and think more.
    And we do want you to think less, and feel more!
    And we do want you to try less, and allow more.

    We do want you to TRUST more.
    We want you to RELAX more,
    in the KNOWING of this magnificent stuff.

    And, we gotta tell you-
    that in relaxed expectation,

    there is much more powerful orgasm
    whether you are talking about the physical one,
    or whether you talk about the one that comes
    when all manifestation begins rendezvousing.

    All of this stuff is the same stuff!
    Iow, when points light up for you, and you see it and you see it and you see it- THATīs the way life is supposed to be!

    Itīs not a frenzy!
    Itīs this SUREFOOTED,
    earth-turning-in-itīs-orbit-WELLBEING ABOUNDING ALWAYS- FOR YOU- way, of going about it.



    transcript of the clip
    Abraham-Hicks - Relaxed Expectation Orgasm





    Itīs just
    triumphant, triumphant, triumphant!
    The orgasmic qualities of your life just build
    and build and build
    as you come together with the power and the creativity of the all-ness that is focussed with you, here and now.

    And THEN- your feeling of worthiness, your feeling of rightness, your feeling of goodness is just present all the time, and you just walk around
    radiating and glowing, and uplifting others-

    -and
    finding those,
    who are a vibrational match!

    Abraham, Asheville 2011


    YOU DONīT WANT IT TO END. The Joy is in the Journey!


    ON THE VERGE-NESS...
    On the verge-ness, on the verge-ness-
    is there anything better than that anticipation
    of something good, coming!?

    Now, now- stay with us! -You wanna say "Yeah, getting there!"
    But REALLY! If your always feeling that on-the verge-ness, on the verge-ness... friends, stuff has to get in!

    You canīt stay on the verge,
    without plenty of it, getting in.

    And plenty of it surprising you, and delighting you- and fulfilling you, and satisfying you- thatīs just the optimum place to be!
    On the verge of more good stuff. On the verge, now, now, now!
    On the verge, now, now, now- on the verge, now- something more....

    And EVERYTHING, EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK- there is something beautiful!
    There is something meaningful, there is someone
    saying something- EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK!

    There is not any place you could possibly look, when you got that on-the-vergeness-thing going on, that there isnīt a nugget. And another, and another, and another. Itīs just like grazing through that magnificent buffet.

    And you wanna make it last.

    You dont wanna eat it all at once.

    You just wanna nibble your way through!
    Because- you wanna stay there for hours, and hours and hours...


    ...and if you sit there and eat too much, being there wonīt be fun. So you wanna nibble. Just nibble. Here, and here, and here and here and here...
    And then, pretty soon- you get hold of something that you wanna go out with it,
    because itīs so good-
    you wanna eat more more more...

    Weīr talking about life, not food-
    but weīr talking about food- but you get the analogy...


    You wanna nibble your way through. On the verge of MORE. And when you feel on the verge... think of the emotional components of that- youīr on the verge- first: You KNOW itīs coming.

    And so, if youīr playing this right, there is no angst, about when it comes!
    Because, itīs coming! And when itīs coming- does it matter how long it takes to come? -There are things that we KNOW that you want to hold off.

    You donīt want them to come.

    There are things that you like to stay on the verge of as long as you can hold yourself on the verge of them- do you know what weīr talking about?

    There are things that you donīt want to go over the top of too soon- you want to stay on the verge of them, donīt you just love that delicious on-the-verge-feeling? (...) more, more, MORE. Thatīs the mantra of the Universe.

    And if you settle into this,
    EVERY moment is a delicious moment.
    Whether itīs a contented moment, or a passionate moment.
    They are ALL delicious moments.


    Orlando, March 2012.



    Life isn't about wanting it and getting it,
    wanting it and getting it,
    wanting it and getting it,
    wanting it and getting it,
    wanting it and getting it.

    It's about wanting it,
    and making your way
    to the receiving of it.
    Sort of like orgasms.
