    By ferreting out all the resistance,
    your attention to it only creates more.
    Rather than look for resistance,
    work on allowing the desires
    you have already created.
    Deactivate, untangle yourself from,
    find a way to detach yourself from resistance.

    Facing Fears?

    HS:
    I heard you say, “Go deep. We want you to go deep, and by deep we mean going general.” But then another spiritual teacher that I really love has talked about shadow work, where when you face your fears, and you look into them, and you dive deep, you shine the light of consciousness on them and transmute the energy. So I was wondering what Abraham had to say about those two things—like going general verse [sic] purposely trying to love yourself by facing your fears, and acknowledging them.

    Abraham:
    We have been talking a lot about the process of creation, and how knowing what you don’t want is the very beginning of the launching of the clarity, or the rockets of desire, or the vibrational stream of what you do want.

    So, it’s important to acknowledge that you were born into this leading edge time space reality with the intention of exploring the variety. That the contrast is something that you understand as a good thing. That all expansion is born from it. That without the ability to know what is not wanted, you couldn’t know what is wanted.

    Then, once you’ve launched that rocket—that’s what we’ve been talking about all morning here—your Source, or your Inner Being, or whatever you want to call that non-physical part of you, becomes a vibrational equivalent by focusing upon the outcome that you’re seeking, the results that you want, the desire that you hold.

    And because Source is not resistant in nature, and is not trying to prove worthiness, and is not living out here on the leading, bleeding edge, like you are, Source is able to hold steady that clear vision of what you are asking for, making it possible, even likely, for you to feel your way to that vibrational frequency, even though the contrast that you lived, you weren’t in that frequency, but it caused you to launch the rocket of what you do want, and now you have to find a way to find that vibrational equivalent.

    So, the way we’ve been teaching it is, once you know what you do want, now as you feel your way towards the thoughts that feel better, in time, you’ll become such a NATURAL, usual, often vibrational harmonizer with your desire—not with the absence of it but with your desire—that now the full manifestation of it happens.

    That’s how thoughts and desires become the see-it, hear-it, taste-it, touch-it reality that you all are seeking. So that’s step 1 & 2 of the process.

    Step 3 is holding steady to the vibration of what you’re wanting until—step 3 really is coming into sync with it, and allowing it to manifest.

    Recently, we’ve been talking about Step 4 which is really nothing more than mastery of that. It’s awareness of the way you feel; conscious awareness of the way you feel. And true desire to feel good. So much so that you’re willing to choose the thoughts that do feel the best. So that you become more of a blended being. More blended with that larger part of you. Not void of contrast but blended more of the time. In an expectant place of well being.

    And then step 5 just begun—identifying step 5—is where you no longer are mad at yourself when you’re standing in step 1.

    Step 5 is where you acknowledge the BENEFIT of contrast. And so, that’s what we think you’re talking about a bit there. But these are the very powerful things that we want to say in response to this important question that you’ve put forth here.
    Whatever you give your attention to, you are practicing the vibrational frequency of. And if you’re practicing the vibrational frequency of, you’re not going to leave it behind, you are going to cause it to be more. And momentum about whatever it is that you’re giving your attention to is going to become more.


    Now sometimes people believe, and we’re not denying that this can be the case, when you face your greatest fears, there’s a lot of stuff down in there that’s gonna cause a lot of rockets of desire to shoot out of it.

    In other words, that’s like deliberately standing in step 1, almost for the purpose of launching the rockets of desire.

    But people usually don’t survive
    an intense scrutiny of what is not wanted
    .

    That’s why every disease after it is diagnosed becomes more, at least for a while. Because your attention to the subjects holds you in a frequency that does not allow you to experience the difference from the reality that you are focused upon.

    So we certainly would not deny that contrast will launch rockets. We know that. We teach that. It’s a fact of universal life. And we certainly will never deny that once the rocket is launched that there is not expansion. Because there is. That rocket launching is expansion. You have become a more expanded being when that happens. But you’ve got to find a way to consistently line up with it.

    And so, all we would say in response to that is—if you feel like you need to go really deep, and really dark, into the shadows in order to fair it out—the stuff that’s wrong—in order to discover what’s right, then go for it. But almost everyone we’ve ever known got lost in the shadows along the way. Because the vibration frequency of that, that pattern of thoughts just holds them there.

    You cannot deny that what you think about matters. That’s why we were so strong this morning—in anticipation of you sitting here and presenting us with this.

    We want you to know that your thoughts. DO. MATTER. Every thought matters.

    Now that doesn’t mean that you couldn’t think a thought that is detrimental in one moment or in one day, and then begin thinking thoughts that are more beneficial in others. But the likelihood of moving from the thought that doesn’t feel good to the thought that feels better is not that likely because of the momentum of the thought. Law of Attraction and momentum are the same resource.

    (...) In other words, you just cannot give attention to something without it becoming part of your vibration. And if you do it over enough period of time, it becomes something that registers in your point of attraction.

    And so our encouragement is to do the light work. It’s more natural to you. Don’t go to the shadows. If you’ve lived something not wanted, and you’ve bounced from it, then focus upon what you’re bouncing up.

    But such a scrutiny of all of the details does not serve you very well. That’s why therapy lasts so long [said theatrically!]

    What is a bad thing anyway?
    A bad thing is something that is different,
    than what I want.
    Who gets to decide what the bad thing is?
    Jerry and Esther watched the mother bird lay her eggs in the nest,
    and then the neighbor's cat ate the baby bird.

    Esther said "bad cat!"

    And the cat said, "good bird!"

    There is not rightness or wrongness,
    there is alignment or not.
    There is allowing who you ARE to flow in this moment,
    or there’s pinching yourself off.
    There’s worthiness or lack of worthiness.
    There’s clarity or confusion.
    There’s being who you are, or not being who you are.

    (...) Do you know that every person, no matter how abhorred their
    behavior is in any moment of time—Source is loving them, and when you’re
    looking at their action instead of the part of them that Source is looking at,
    then you’re gonna disconnect from Source?

    And that’s why you feel bad.
    Not because they’re abhorrent or doing wrong.
    But because you’ve used them as your excuse to disconnect from Source,
    who never disconnects from Source.
    Isn’t that good to know?


    ~ Abraham-Hicks, Houston, March 19, 2016



    Reality?

    Everything that you activate in your vibration becomes a truth.
    You can make cancer true. You can make violence true.
    You can make clarity true. You can make poverty true.
    You can make abundance true. You can choose anything
    and give it your attention and make it truth.

    We say, a novel approach would be
    to pick things you like and make those true.
    But before you’re going to be able to do that,
    you’ve got to say, “It’s not about what’s true and untrue.
    It’s about what I choose to activate and turn into truth.


    —Abraham




    When you feel that something is wrong...


    When you feel that something is wrong,
    there isn’t anything to do about it other,
    than make yourself stop feeling that something is wrong.

    Now stay with us for just a little bit, because this is really important.
    You see, still with all that you are coming to know about Deliberate Creation,
    still what’s stuck in so many of your vibrational craws is:
    "I still need to control something.
    The circumstances need to be adjusted in order for things to go well for me."



    That is never, never, NEVER true!!!
    ALL you have to do is adjust your vibration.


    And so Esther would complain, and this is the deeper and deeper level.
    She would complain:
    "It’s hard to feel good when I see they are doing things wrong."
    And then she would take it deeper and say,
    "But it’s hard to feel good when I FEEL they are doing things wrong."
    Are you staying with us here?



    And what we are saying is:
    It might be hard to feel better when you are seeing things that are going wrong.
    And it might be hard to feel better when you feel things are going wrong.
    But get off the belief system that says,
    "I’ve got to fix what’s wrong before I can feel better,"
    and find a way of feeling better before anything’s fixed.



    And if you can find a way of feeling better before any of those things are fixed,
    Law of Attraction will fix those things.
    But UNTIL you can find a way of feeling better before any of those things are fixed,
    Law of Attraction cannot fix those things!



    And people who can’t buck your current will behave exactly in opposition
    to how you think they should behave.
    Not because they don’t like you and not because they are being bad to you,
    but because they are swept up on the current of your vibration
    and they are co-creating with you on a level that is not satisfactory to you.
    And that feeling in your gut is about your separation from who you really are
    and what you really want.



    It doesn’t have anything to do with them.
    It doesn’t have anything to do with the circumstances.
    Can you FEEL this??? It’s ALL about cleaning up your vibration. -Why?



    To make your bus right? No!
    To make people like you? NO!
    To make them do a better job? NO!!!
    Clean up your vibration because it’s the ONLY way
    you will EVER feel good.

    Clean it up because you want to feel good.
    We want you all to realize you’ve got to make your vibrational adjustment
    for one selfish, singular reason: The vibrational adjustment just FEELS better.



    [And then they told more of the story about them driving the bus away
    and discovering it still wasn't near right and asking them to come to fix it on the road,
    and they refused. And Jerry tried to encourage Esther to feel better and she said,
    "It's just TOO HARD."
    And then when Jerry was on the phone with them she heard Jerry say,]


    "We GIVE UP!"
    -And when Esther heard him say, "We give up" she said, "We give up!
    We give up! Uncle, Uncle, Uncle, Uncle, Uncle, Uncle, Uncle!’ You win! You win!!!
    We give up. We give up! We give up! We give up! We give up!"

    -What are you giving up? Are you giving up your desire?
    Can’t do that!

    Are you giving up what’s in your Vibrational Escrow?
    That’s not even possible, you put it there for all eternity!
    What are you giving up?

    "We are giving up our belief that we can get to where we want to be,
    by controlling YOU! We give up. We give up!

    Ooooooooooooo, it feels so good to give up! We’ll just drive this bus
    until it won’t move forward. We’ll just point it toward San Francisco,
    and we’ll just keep going…"

    -And then the indicator lights went off.
    And then the phone rang and the man said, "Where are you?
    We’ll meet you, where are you?" And Esther said,
    "Gee! We should have given up 3 weeks ago!
    We should have given up a long time ago."
    And we say, "Just give it up!"

    Distract yourself from the sickness, even though it hurts!


    (Source ONLY sees your wellness, and so...)
    ...you´ve gotta look over HERE, too.
    Look over HERE!

    You´ve gotta believe in this VIBRATIONAL reality,
    with such fervor, that you distract yourself from the sickness,
    even though it hurts!


    -That you distract yourself from the decline in your bank-account,
    even though that you´r afraid.
    You HAVE TO WANT SO MUCH to tune into the wholeness
    that you´ve become, that you are willing to IGNORE
    all of the reality-details, and all of the evidence,

    and all of the people from the peanut-gallery,
    that are pointing at you and are calling you,
    and all of the people that give you the diagnoses,
    and all of the people that are giving you your credit-reports,

    you HAVE TO IGNORE REALITY,
    if you will ever move into the direction of vibrational reality!
    Because you CAN NOT DO BOTH in the same time.

    About dealing with pain


    "The most significant thing
    that we want you to focus upon relative to pain,
    is
    that when you are feeling it and focusing upon it,
    it cannot go away.

    And if you
    would… A friend earlier offered a very good word that,
    as you apply it to this,

    we believe it can serve you very powerfully, and that is, as you
    surrender.

    Now,
    it's sort of like relaxing into the pain
    rather than pushing against it,
    rather
    than trying to figure it out or understand it or stop it.
    Just sort of relax and
    go with it.

    In other words, just sort of accept it. Don't tense against it.
    Just
    sort of accept it.
    In most cases it will soften right away as you try to relax
    into it a little bit."

    HS:
    asking about the good and the bad foods,
    talking about science´s different discoveries about it...

    Abe:

    "We want to interrupt you and say:
    Blablablablablablablabla.

    We want to say to you:
    None of that matters,
    None of that matters,
    None of that matters,
    None of that matters,
    None of that matters,
    None of that matters!!!

    None of that matters, none of that matters, none of that matters!
    None of that matters!

    None of that matters."

    Isn’t it sort of a cycle that you might want
    to consider breaking?


    "...I’m looking at the thing that I don’t want
    and I’m getting more of it,
    so I’m looking at it and getting more of it
    so I’m looking at it and getting more of it
    I’m looking at it and getting more of it..."

    ...Is there something missing in the explanation?????

    (Abe speaking from human perspective)
    “I see this thing I do not want and the more I look at it
    the more I get of it-
    so I think I will look at it some more.”

    I don´t CARE about the problem!
    I´M IN ALIGNMENT WITH THE SOLUTION.



    (Freedom) is NEVER CARING AGAIN about what anybody else
    thinks about what you´r doing!
    That´s the ONLY FREEDOM!

    Because, if you´r trying to jump through hoops, to please them,
    then you´r not gonna be lighthearted.
    And then you´r not gonna feel free, and you´ll come to resent them,
    so soon.

    And so we´r asking all of you (...) do you have the clarity,
    do you have the willingness, the GUMPTION, do you have the momentum-
    that´s even a better word, do you have the momentum
    to not care, what somebody else thinks, about what you´r doing?

    Ohh, if you could get there... if you just could get there!
    Practice these words with us!
    (Audience repeats all of Abe´s sentences)

    I don´t care!
    It´s just how I am.
    I like it this way!
    Life is SO FUN for me!
    I don´t care!
    I´m sorry you´r upset- but I don´t care.
    I want your world to be really good- but I don´t care!
    I would like everything to go really well for you,
    but I can´t fix it, and so- I don´t care!
    (laughter)

    "Well, I want a divorce then, when you don´t care."
    -I don´t care.
    "What do you mean, I don´t care??"
    -Well, I don´t mean I don´t care about anything,
    because there are a lot of things I do care for!

    I care about feeling good. And I care about clarity.
    I CARE about being in the receptive mode!
    I care about being an uplifter!
    I care about myself, in any moment of time!
    I care about being of value. I care about feeling good.

    I care about this magnificent environment!
    I care about what´s in my Vortex.
    I care about what´s in your Vortex!
    I care about everything that you desire!
    I care about all good things, coming to me and to you.

    I care about us all, living all happily ever after!
    But what I don´t care about, are conditions I cannot control.

    What I don´t care about, are things that take me out of my alignment.
    What I don´t care about- meaning, I have no momentum
    about it anymore, -I don´t CARE-, it´s no hook for me,
    it´s not a knee-jerk-response to me,
    I´ve trained myself to CARE about what infuses me,
    not what diffuses me!

    I care about what LIFTS me, not what lowers me.
    I care about what feels good, not about what doesn´t feel good.
    I care about alignment.
    I care about being an extension of source,
    I care about fulfilling my reason for being here.

    I care about being in this world,
    and not about necessarily only of this world!
    I care about the WHOLE of me, being present in this moment.
    I care about all, who have gone before me.
    And all that they´ve come to know, and all that they do now know,
    and all that they are presenting to me.

    I care about the revelation that´s coming constantly to me,
    and I care about being in the receptive mode of that.
    I care about being on the leading edge.
    I care about contributing in positive ways.
    I care about feeling good, and I care about others feeling good.

    But what I don´t care about is that, that I can´t control-
    and what I can´t control, is everything that is conditional,
    and what I CAN control, is everything that is unconditional.

    I CAN CONTROL the way that I feel: I have practiced it,
    and I can hold a steady vibration.
    I can stay in vibrational sync with who I am-
    I can present the whole of myself, in this time-space-reality,
    in any situation.

    I can walk into any situation that is raging in discomfort,
    and IF I HAVEN´T CARED ABOUT IT, I´m not HOOKED INTO IT!
    And because I´m not hooked into it,
    I´m in vibrational alignment of the solution they are all seeking!
    -They are all bound up in the problem.

    But I don´t CARE about the problem!
    I´M IN ALIGNMENT WITH THE SOLUTION.

    Sometimes people will say, "Well, isn't this just denial?"
    And we say, "We hope so!"

    We hope that you are denying the absence
    that you do not want.
    And we hope that you are embracing the presence of what you do.
    But somehow the idea of denial has become a dirty word to you;
    like it is virtuous to face the reality of the horror of your own lives.

    And we would be ignoring anything that did not please us.
    We would get our eyes on what feels good.


    --- Abraham
