    As many of our Forum friends already know, I really like that word, soothing, because it really captures for me the idea that Abraham are trying to get across to us. I find it's often helpful to explain "soothing" by stepping outside of ourselves for a minute. Usually, I explain soothing by asking the person wanting to know about soothing to imagine what they would tell a dear friend, who came to them with the same situation and with the same issues and hot buttons, to help that dear friend feel better. (This is where that "still seems true" piece really comes into play because they can smell, from a mile away, when you're offering platitudes, statements which don't seem true to them.) You see, you already "soothe" a lot. You know how to do it. Sometimes, you just need to step outside of yourself in order to be able to do it for yourself. (And it'll be great practice for you as a soon-to-be mom, where soothing can be such an important skill for any mom.)

    Give it a shot here, if you'd like.

    Your welcome.

    Also remember, that there is no "good" or "bad" regarding any way that you are feeling. It is simply guidance. The key really is awareness of how you ARE feeling, what ever it is. Because THEN, you have the choice.

    I would recommend the unconditional process to you, that is a really good one for getting into alignment easily and quickly.
    It is the one where you simply write down words, emotional words on paper, over and over again, what ever words feel good to you. and as you do so, more words are inspired.

    Also, remember your inner being knows what to do. And let go of "trying to figure it out" yourself. Instead of doing that, make it about getting into alignment with YOU. It can be easy to get into our "heads|" at times like these, but really this is the time you want to be out of your head and in your Heart.

    Going general will be your friend there.

    General about where you are.
    General in general.

    Remember wellbeing abounds.
    And things are always working out, however they may seem at the moment.
    Things are always working out.

    Maybe find a general statement that resonates with you, and use it like a mantra...

    All is well.

    Your health is the most valuable of valuables! And you have got that, and so has your little one.
    Everything else is extra.....and will follow....in proportion to your alignment with your Self.

    TRUST
    And make how you feel what matters most.

    I love this old thing abe used to say, and was reminded of it today when I bumped into an old friend:

    Get a handle on your vibration.....and if you still don't feel good.....get a handle on your vibration.
    Get a HANDLE on your vibration

    Hello lovely people,

    I have just two weeks until my bundle of joy arrives on this planet and i'm so super excited to meet her - My pregnancy has been an absolute joy, and for the most part I took the advice from this page and have had it in my mind that I cannot afford to feel bad.. that's been a wonder on keeping me on track.

    I ran out of my savings at the end of 2017, and made a ''deal'' that I would borrow money from my husband, since he felt bad lending me money and I feel bad receiving money from him - at the time it made the most sense. However, now I seem to be in a bit of a funk about the situation as it seems like he was not as supportive of me leaving my job to focus on my passions as he initially said he was.

    I want nothing more than to be financially independent with my own money and I hate having to rely on him, but also know for the next few months whilst I'm getting used to new mum life iI should be focusing on that... this evening i'm feeling quite resentful that he's tallying up things, and I'm still paying my way for everything.

    How can I best ease into this situation and get back into alignment?

    By withdrawing your attention from what he's doing or from what he might be thinking, which really are none of your business and which are interfering with your alignment. After all, isn't your intention that "I cannot afford to feel bad"?

    This is where Abraham's story of the hot stove comes in handy. You know that when you touch a hot stove, you feel pain. So, you have learned that removing your hand from that hot stove will reduce your pain. When you focus on what he's doing or what you think he's thinking, you feel bad. So, drawing from the hot stove analogy, when you remove your attention from what he's doing or what he might thinking and focus instead on some other topic which is easy for you to feel good about will fulfill your intention.

    yay, the little one is almost here

    yep, keep up the good work on focusing on what you want no matter what others are trying to make you feel . [even hubbys are part of the peanut gallery.... your child will also be that ]

    you can only feel guilty or what ever if you let yourself....... bless the person and know in your heart what you want. be thankful to source energy for providing for you [even from a so called "reluctant" giver - that is their journey].

    my sis had to give me part of an inheritance one year, then spent the next few years trying to make me feel guilty about it-and sadly I did till one day I figured it out... . it was up to me to feel that I matter and that it was only the universe that gave that to me thru her........ she couldn't help how she felt about it I guess, so her next best thing was to try to control how I felt

    thankfully we have tools to create how we want to feel about our gift from the universe, no matter who it comes from.

    you know that there are good things for you in your future nows , this money thing is only temporary

    congrats and enjoy

    Thank you Wellbeing and Lemon-up

    I took your advice and withdrew the attention from what he was supposedly thinking and got back on to getting excited about impending motherhood and enjoying this special time - and yesterday he said to me that he doesn't think it's right that he loans me money, as it doesn't feel good to him, also that when the baby arrives he will cover everything

    What a big relief , this gives me time to enjoy, relax and allow money to come to me - i'm excited to get back into alignment with my business and enjoy this new chapter !

    So happy for the positive advice here

    You just showed yourself what Abraham mean when they say, "it will come and it will come fast."
