Jerry: So how can we give our attention to, or have a thought about, something that's negative and not have a negative emotional response to it?
Abraham: You cannot. And we would suggest that you try. In other words, to say never have negative emotion would be the same as saying, "Do not have a Guidance System. Pay no attention to your Emotional Guidance System." And that is the opposite of what we are saying. We want you to be aware of your emotions and then guide your thoughts until you feel relief.
As you are focused upon a little (negative) thought, you will feel a little (unwanted) emotion. And if you are sensitive to the way you feel and want to feel better, you will change the thought. It is easy to change it when it is a small thought and a small emotion. It is much harder to change when it is a big thought and therefore a big emotion. The emotion will be proportionate, in intensity, to the
The first question requires me to describe a physical condition that I have, which is the result of a traumatic incident in my life 3 years ago. I was struck by an automobile and it was painful and difficult and I realise now or very shortly after the accident that I had chosen this on some level...
Vibrationally you choose everything, whether you want it or not.
Hear this - oh, you're gonna like this, and whether you do or not, WE do. In the same way that it wasn't thinking about cancer that made you sick. It was worrying about this and this and this and this and this and this and this and this and this in a stream that's moving really fast, that made you sick. So it's not thinking about money money money money money money money that's gonna bring you money.
Do you like taking thought beyond that which it has been before? Do you want to set aside everything that you have come to know and believe, all at once, and just jump into a whole new understanding? Well, if that is your desire, you are really going about it the hard way. And it also implies that what you have is not working— when it is.
A very nice quick message from Abraham!
Guest: ...If I want something, so very much, like...say, a beautiful home, and I don't see it within my means to buy a new home but, I still want it, and can feel excited about it...am I still creating it?
Abraham: In the moment that you are excited about it, you are! In the moment that you are worried about it and thinking you cannot afford it, you are pushing it away. And that is the way most of your creations are: they are floating around in limbo out here somewhere! Created, just not coming into you experience because you attract them and push them, attract them and push them, attract them and push them.
The key is to monitor the way you feel and, whenever you feel negative emotion, stop doing whatever you are doing. Stop thinking , speaking, acting. Stop doing whatever it is that has brought forth that negative emotion.
Question: I know I have many questions but I find that I often disavow my own knowing by asking someone who I put on a platform. And so I came to sit in the chair because I wanted to have the experience of feeling you with me, and so I could feel our commonality rather than to feel our difference, because I tend to make the difference the factor so that I diminish myself.
Abraham: And we want to help you to achieve that by acknowledging to you that we would not be here expressing at all if it were not for the summoning by that which is you.
So..something happens, you observe it, you take the hit, it doesn't feel good. And then you are embarrassed because you have negative emotion. Do you feel embarrassment when your gas tank indicator tells you that you are on empty? Or do you just go get some more gas?
Are you feeling the life-giving quality of a desire formulated within you? And even though sometimes the desire is not manifesting as quickly as you would like it to, do you still understand and appreciate fully the value of the desire, even in its unfulfilled form? When you get there, you have it all figured out.
You wanted to come forth into an environment of contrast and variety so that you, a specific individual perceiver, or experiencer, could actually give birth to your own desire or preference. You knew that the moment that that pulsing, vibrating preference happens (whether you talk about it or not; it happens vibrationally) it is the summoning of Source Energy itself.
Jerry: Abraham, why do you feel that so many of us, in physical form, seem to have a need to justify the good that comes to us?
Abraham: Part of the reason is that humans incorrectly believe in the limitation of resources, so they feel they must explain to others why they should receive it instead of them. Belief in "unworthiness" is another factor. There is a very powerful thought here in your physical dimension that says, "You are not worthy, so you are here to prove yourselves as worthy."
You are not here to prove your worthiness. You are worthy! You are here for the experience of joyful expansion. It was by the power of your desire, and by the power of your allowing - indeed, by your application of the very Law [of Attraction] that we are discussing here - that you have emerged into this time-space reality. And so, your physical existence here is proof of your worthiness, or deservedness, to be, do, or have whatever you desire, you see.
Co-creating with another person can be fabulous. Two or more people
thinking a little differently — can add balance and breadth, and depth,
to one another’s desires. Two people, master minding, can add power to
