Thread: Question about ignoring your desire

    Question about ignoring your desire

    There is something that I have great desire for, but also have a lot of resistance towards because it means that much to me. Abe says that if we take our attention off of what we want, that will release the resistance and it will manifest. I'm worried that if I take my attention off of what I want that it will be self-sabotaging somehow. Ignoring it will stop the attention to it, so will the universe think I don't want it anymore? Would love some clarification on this topic. Thank you!

    How well has keeping your attention on the subject worked? Presumably not so well. If keeping your attention on your desire isn't helpful because you have a lot of resistance active (which is already "self-sabatoging," as you put it), then how can taking your attention off of your desire possibly be any worse than what you're doing now?

    That never, ever happens. Once you put a desire into your Vortex, your IB is ALWAYS going to call you forward to that desire. It's inevitable that you'll realize your desire, it's simply a matter of when you let go of your resistance.

    Let's review Abraham's original 3 Steps of the Creative Process:
    Step 1 - You Ask. This is done as you come to each of your preferences. You launch your RoDs in Step 1.
    Step 2 - It is Given. In the very instant that you launch your RoDs, the universe responds and your request is added to your Vortex.
    Step 3 - You Allow. This is the part that Abraham talk most to us about. You line up your vibration so that you can allow what you had created in Step 1 to manifest into your physical experience.

    A lot of people misunderstand these 3 steps. They confuse the alignment "work" of Step 3 with the creating of Step 1. They, like you, think that it's by reminding the universe (or affirming or whatever) that they are creating their desire. But their desire--your desire--is already done. You did the work. You did it in Step 1 with your Asking.

    Once you've put something in your Vortex, it's done. You will have it. (Most people will wait until they croak before they will Allow themselves to have it, but they will have it.) No one can ever take away from you anything that you've put in your Vortex. In fact, one of Abraham's original names for The Vortex was "Vibrational Escrow," to remind us that it is done, it is given, it can't be lost, it won't be forgotten by your IB or the universe and no one can take it away from you.

    How do you know this to be true? Because when you think "Ignoring it will stop the attention to it, so will the universe think I don't want it anymore," you don't feel "good," right? That's your guidance, letting you know that your IB has a different opinion than that thought.

    Wow, your words almost brought tears to my eyes with relief. The fact that it's guaranteed somehow, someway... no matter what... that reassurance brings me great relief. I love my desire and I love that I desire it and I am so happy that it is mine. I feel as though I can breathe a little easier now.

    I think I was getting caught up on the timing factor as well. But it's ok because anytime is the perfect time because all timing is perfect. I do know all this from the recordings, but I really felt it with your words. Thank you for this clarification. Bookmarking this post as a reminder if I need one.

    I think, this quote might even deepen your understanding of how this all works...


    Your CALLING


    HS:
    Could you speak of the interplay between choice and destiny?

    Abe:
    ALL that you call destiny IS CHOICE.

    What feels like destiny are the incremental choices, that you made
    by knowing what you do want and knowing what you donīt want.
    And throwing them, indicidually, into your Vortex.

    (...) When you get a whiff of your Vortex, it feels like destiny!
    Itīs calling you in SUCH a strong way. But the "destiny" in this
    conversation was made up of individual choices, that you were
    making. And than, we must speak to choices that you have made,
    even before you came into this physical experience, that donīt
    vary at ALL from what you vibrationally are determining now!

    But it feels to you as a "calling",
    and thatīs why you call it destiny.

    (...) Sometimes there is a feeling that is just SO STRONG, and it
    CAN NOT be denied, and if you feel it- and you turn away from it, to
    do something else instead, sometimes you start sort of feeling
    paralization- iow, you CAN NOT NOT GO into the direction of this
    powerful calling, and be satisfied!

    But that requires a little trust!
    Thatīs why we explain it to you, in this way: You were nonphysical
    energy, before you came into this physical body. YES!
    And here you are, in this physical body. YAY!!
    And the nonphysical part of you is still nonphysically focused- and
    flowing to you, and through you, all the time- but, nonphysically focused!

    So, here you are, with your physical perspective, sifting and sorting,
    knowing what you donīt want and knowing what you do want, and
    asking CONTINUALLY for this and that.

    And so, this rockets of desires are going forth, into this vibrational
    reality that we have named the Vortex. Because, we wanted you to
    feel the REALITY of it, even though you cannot yet see it or hear it
    or taste it or smell it or touch it.

    Itīs THE VIBRATIONAL VERSION of all that you have become.
    And your IB stands there, STRONG and benefitted by the choices
    that youīve been making as youīve been sifting and sorting!
    So, this nonphysical part of you is standing there, in all of that
    clarity, and all of that knowing- AND NO DOUBT, no lackful anything-
    ALL things wanted, because:
    YOU SIFTED IT OUT, one experience at a time.

    And now, your IB is there- and, most important, because LoA
    is responding to this entity called "you", and your nonphysical inner
    being, and ALL that youīve asked for -as LoA is responding to that,
    cooperative components are called to that.

    And you- who has the most vibrational... weīll call it "DNA", itīs
    wrong terminology, but the most vibrational hooking to it, because
    -you CREATED IT!- there is NOTHING in all of the Universe, that
    this cooperative... you are THE most desired component!!
    Letīs call it this way!

    Your IB is MOST DESIROUS of you, being a
    cooperative component to your own creation!!

    And thatīs why it feels like such a
    powerful CALLING.

    And thatīs why you feel such satisfaction, when youīr having
    any thought thatīs moving towards it. And thatīs why youīr
    feeling an uneasy tugging, when youīr having a thought that
    takes you from it.

    (...) When you go contrary to ANY of the
    KNOWLEDGE that you have COME TO -through all
    that you have lived!- then you arenīt moving in
    the direction of your DESTINY!


    And the reason that the word destiny is a good word is, can you feel
    the INEVITABILITY of it? The ABSOLUTENESS of it?
    Iow, THIS IS DESTINY!
    THIS IS CERTAIN!
    THIS IS WHO YOU ARE!!


    We just donīt think you should have to croak, to get there!
    We think you have the ability to pay attention to how you feel- and
    to, thought by thought, allow yourself to be called by this powerful
    LoA that is calling you, and all of the cooperative components there!

    How many what you call synchronistic things, or maybe even
    coincidental things happen and you marvel at the oddness of that
    coincidence, when we revel
    in the sureness of the attraction!


    (...) In time you will understand, that your destiny

    GOT you! Your destiny HAS you!
    Your destiny, made up of individual choices. But youīve got to make
    the choice to wanna FEEL GOOD, to be anywhere near it.

    Is "Destiny" a word like "God", that we can never speak to you again?
    Donīt mess up the idea of destiny.

    Let it be your longterm-intentionality that you are adding to, every day
    of choices. Destiny couldnīt exist, if it where not for choices.
    And destiny couldnīt be discovered, or you couldnīt find your way
    to it, if it wherenīt for the CHOICE of wanting to feel good.

    There is no destiny, where you have to think those thoughts.
    You have free choices, free will in every thought you think!
    But ultimately, youīll end up in a really goodfeeling place
    -for a minute, for a little while, because youīll jump right back
    with both feet, into MORE choosing.

    Because, choosing is whatīs necessary for eternity.

    ^ That's perfect, thank you!

    There is something so exciting in knowing that you can't 'escape' your desire or lose it or erase it, no matter what you do. I don't have to chase it, it's chasing me. That's a wonderful feeling.

    Just RELAX into it, every time the fear comes up, again.
