Seth: Differentiate Between Primary and Secondary Experience

Seth, The Nature of the Psyche, Session 799

Seth: Now, Physically your body has a stance in space and time.

I will speak of primary and secondary experience. Let us call primary experience that which exists immediately in sense terms in your moment of time--the contact of body with environment.

I am creating certain divisions here to make our discussion---or (with a smile) monologue-easier. Therefore, I will call secondary experience that information that comes to you through, say, reading, television, discussion with others, letters, and so forth.

The secondary kind of experience is largely symbolic. This should be clear.

Reading about a war in the middle of a quiet sunny afternoon is not the same thing as being in the war, however vivid the description.

Reading about the energy shortage is not the same as sitting in a cold house.

Reading about the possible annihilation of mankind through nuclear destruction or other stupidities, while you are sitting calmly enough in your living room, is obviously far divorced from the actuality described in an article.

At the levels with which we are concerned, the body must primarily react to present, immediate, primary existence in space and time.

At other levels it is equipped to handle many kinds of data, in that I have mentioned before the precognition of cells. But the body depends on the conscious mind to give it a clear assessment of precise conditions of the space and time it occupies. It depends upon that knowledge.

If you are safely ensconced in a comfortable room, in no present danger, your senses should accurately convey that information.

Your conscious mind should assimilate it. It should be an easy enough accomplishment to look around you and see that you are in no danger.

Your conscious mind is meant to give your body an assessment of what I will call cultural conditions, for there are sophistications and specifications that in your terms consciousness alone can assess.

If, under conditions naturally safe in the terms of primary experience, you become overwhelmed by unsafe signals from secondary experience - that is, from your reading or whatever-you show a lack of discrimination.

You are not able to differentiate between the physically safe present situation, and the imagined, which is perhaps unsafe, calling forth the alarms of danger.

The body mechanisms become highly disoriented. The signals to the body are very contradictory, so that after a while, if such conditions continue, you can no longer tell whether you are in actual danger or imagined danger.

Your mind then forces your body to be in a state of constant alert- but more unfortunately, you train yourself to ignore your direct, sensual feedback in the present moment.

Your body then might say you are safe, and your senses show you that no danger is present-yet you have begun to rely so upon secondary experience that you do not trust your creature reactions.

Because of man's great gift of imagination, however, the alarm signals not only invade a safe present moment, but go jangling into the next one and the one following, and are endlessly projected into the future.

To whatever extent, and in whatever fashion, each individual is therefore robbed of his or her belief in the personal ability to act meaningfully or with purpose in the present.

The body cannot act tomorrow, today.

Its sense data must be clear. This resulting feeling of powerlessness to act leads to a state of hopelessness of varying degrees-and that mood does not tie itself to specific details, but pervades emotional life if it is allowed to.

Abe Classic: Releasing Resistance

Abraham-Hicks, Fairfax, VA 4/29/95

Imagine this situation: A car is driving down the street at 100 mph, and it runs into a tree which is standing right in the middle of the road. Big problem. Two factors are involved - one is the velocity of the car and the other is the tree standing there. If the car were only going 5 mph, even if it hit the tree, it would not be a big problem. Or it could easily avoid the tree at 5 mph. Or, if the tree were not there at all, the car could be going 200 mph and it would not be a problem.

Every now and again, somebody will say to us, "Abraham, is it normal for all hell to break loose in one's life when they begin doing Abraham work?" And we say, "Yes, in the beginning." Because the first thing we encourage you to do is identify and clarify your desire. Desire is synonymous with the velocity of the car. When you identify and clarify your desire, your car goes faster, which means you're likely to run into those trees; trees which were there, in most cases, for many years, but you were not noticing at a slower speed. Now that your energy is moving faster because of your desire, your resistance is more apparent. Are you getting a sense of what we're talking about?

Most people, when they get in that situation, slow the car down. They slow the wanting down. And that gives them a temporary feeling of well-being. But it doesn't do anything about the resistance. So you can go through years, with this resistance getting a little more and your car going slower and slower. That's why people decline as they move through time. They want less, which means they summon less energy - because in wanting something that they cannot have, they were frustrated and banging into trees, so they slow their wanting down and let their resistance get greater and greater.

And that's the state of affairs that you see in most people around you. Well, what we're wanting to teach you is to get your car going so fast that those trees become very obvious and now you know what to do with the trees. In other words, you stop and just talk about it until you feel better and, in time, there are no more trees. In 30 days of applying this, you can release 95% of them. And then now and again, an old ugly tree that has been with you a long time will rear its ugly head and give you a run for your money, but when that happens, at least now you know what to do about it.

Recreate Healthy Body Cells Part 3

Continued from Part I and Part 2.

Abraham: So a healer who is really helpful is one who helps soothe his client into a place of allowing the answering to what the cells have been asking for. The very best healing words, if you are wanting to find a phrase that would be beneficial to everyone whether they could really hear it and believe it, and understand it or not would be:

Well Being should be yours. And your cells know exactly how to ask and what to do, and if you could completely get out of the way and trust, you would become well again because the cells know what they need and they are asking from their direct source of life. And if you're not in the way of that, that cell is going to find it's recovery; and if that cell does the other cells can; and if enough of them do, you're going to feel really good.

That's powerful.

So the trick is how do I do that when I hurt? How do I do that when somebody's given me a label that frightens me? And we say, you've got to separate the two journeys. You can have the illness and feel hopeful or you can have the illness and be afraid. You've just got to soothe yourself.

Words like "Faith" and "Trust" are really irritating, we know, but there is a vibration within those words "Faith" and "Trust"; the vibration that is really at the heart of those words is a non-resistant place of expecting well-being even before I have any reason to given the evidence that I have.

And so what people usually say is give me a reason to have hope, and I'll have hope. Or give me a reason to have faith, and I'll have faith. And so that's the reason that so many methodologies, so many different medicines, and so many different processes have come about because people-they're almost frantic for hope, you see. And anybody that can give it to them is a powerful healer. If you can find a way to convey hope, and trust, and faith, then you have helped them with their emotional journey. And when you do that the natural resources will take care of everything else.

And everything else is a dog and pony show. Everything else is just jumping through hoops for some other reason. It has nothing to do with what really happens. So the surgery? Just an afterthought. The medicine maybe gives you reason to believe. All that stuff is just serendipitous, but not at the heart of the remedy.

So what did we just say? We said here you are in a place you don't want to be: you're sick, your body hurts. And out of that contrasting experience is born a louder and clearer desire than has ever been emanated by you before. It went out sharp and clear and source heard it and answered it; and so help was on the way immediately.

And then a surgeon said, Let's do this, it will help. And those words soothed you into allowing the remedy that you were seeking. Or someone said, "Here's an herb." and your belief in them caused you to allow, and so you did. In other words, Alignment; we don't care how you get it. Anyway you can get it is just fine.

We're not trying to guide you away from surgery, or away from herbs, or away from medicines, or away from methodology, or away from sound machines, or away from anything. We're not trying to guide you away from action. We're just guiding you to attending to your emotional journey first, and the action will come so much easier.

Guest: Thank you.

Abraham: Yes, indeed.

Recreate Healthy Body Cells Part 2

Continued from Part I.

Abraham: So now what was your question again?

Guest: So since this process is going on, and what I want to do is get younger, or I want to heal a part of my body. I have a scar and I know that all the cells aer going to change out in that piece of skin in a short period of time, vibrationally I want to be able to instruct the cells, not instruct the cells, but ... uh ... gosh ... vibrationally, I want to allow the healing to take place.

Abraham: Better words. Better words because... hear the difference because you caught yourself in a very wise way. Hear the difference between taking it upon myself in a sort of action journey way to instruct the cells, and taking the emotional journey - which means just find something to feel good about, get out of the way, and allow the cells to receive what they've been asking for.

And that really is the key to healing. The key to healing is starting with the premise - that is accurate - that well-being is the basic nature of the body. And then doing whatever it takes to keep yourself from interrupting, or keeping that from happening.

And then the next step in that progression is understanding that if you are interrupting or inhibiting the well-being you are feeling negative emotion at the same time. Negative Emotion is the indicator that you're doing that. So do your best to feel as good as you can feel emotionally, and you take care of everything, you see.

Guest: But can that be directed at a specific part of the body?

Abraham: Yes, but you don't need to be the one that does it. By your directing it to a specific part of the body usually causes you to focus on what's wrong, so your efforts are counterproductive.

Guest: Mm-Hmm. Okay that makes sense.

So very often a healer will see someone in need of some repair, and their attitude is "well I will shine my healing light upon that," which is understandable why they would think that, but it compounds the problem. Because the problem is not for lack of asking - that's already been taking place - it's lack of letting the answer in. And just giving more answer - as in funneling healing energy towards a problem - doesn't help any. It usually causes a greater contradiction in the energy.

When you apply more Pure Positive Source Energy to an area where resistance is already in existence, more discomfort happens. That's why often people will say, "Is it normal for all hell to break loose in my life when I begin doing mediation?" And we say yes because when you begin meditating the energy starts flowing which makes any resistance you got going on show up more - especially at first, you see.

Recreate Healthy Body Cells

Guest: I have heard from several sources that all the cells in the human body are replaced within about a year's time. One person I know has diabetes and her pancreas has not worked for decades. Another has a nerve injury that prevents her hand from working. How can we vibrationally create the perfect cells to regenerate the body part that is not functioning properly?

Abraham: Well, let's look at a physical body and all of its cells, many of them, trillions, hard to count. Imagine a very small community, and you've been watching them from a distance and you notice that they have some very destructive beliefs.

And some wise person says to you, "Well, don't worry about this village because in time all of these people who are now here practicing these not-beneficial beliefs will be dead, and they'll be replaced with a whole new village."

And you say, "Well, that does give me hope. " And then you say, "Will they all die at the same time? And will they all be replaced at the same time?"

And then someone wise says to you, "No, some of them will go, and more of them will come; and some of them will go, and more of them will come."

And then you say, "Well then, it's going take a while for these undesirable beliefs to be watered or filtered out because the ones who are still there that still have the beliefs are going to teach them to the new ones who are coming on."

So, you get the gist of our story. It's sort of what happens with your body and your cellular communities. Once the cells in a particular area of your body begin behaving in the way that they do, they have the same power of influence that anyone does to anything that is near.

The difference between the analogy of the people in the town that it would be nice if they'd all die in the same moment, for the purpose of our story, and the cells in your body, is that the cells in your body are all Pure Positive Energy cells, iow, they are actively, instinctively working for their own personal survival. Something that we've been trying to get all of you to do, at least in these hours that we've been discussing here today. We want you to more selfishly approach your own experience.

So the cells of your body, do you know that they are the first point of the summoning of the life force? Do you know that it is the cellular summoning of Source or the cellular asking that is the reason that the doctors pronounce you alive or dead, iow, it's that cellular summoning that is that difference.

So the cells are summoning, and Source is answering. And if that were all that was to this cellular community...these cells that know how to be well, if they somehow found themselves teetering on a little bit of imbalance, they would just make the correction automatically, they always do; and Source would answer the corrected request, and the cell would right itself within the body; and a body of very well cells is a very well body.

But there is another factor that effects the way the cells are able to receive what they are asking for, and that is the influence of the mind, or the vibrational patterning, or the attitude, or the mood of the human that is inhabiting the clump or cells.

Abe on Communication Breakdown

Abraham-Hicks, Washington, D.C.

So if you find yourself having a hard time communicating with someone say to them, "I'm not being clear." And before they protest say, "And I don't mean I'm not being clear with my words. I mean this conversation has got me thinking in opposite places." And then say to them, "Thank you, because in this contrast I'm getting clearer about what I'm reaching for."

And then end the conversation. Never proceed with a conversation that is off on the wrong foot. That's what we were saying to the very first person we were talking to today. When you take action before you've lined up energy, there's not enough action in the world to make the difference. You can't find the words. But when you're tuned in, tapped in, turned on, you're inspired to the perfect words.

And you know, a teacher is only as effective as his ability to understand where his student is. So a communicator is only as effective as her ability to understand where the person is that you're trying to communicate with. If you're over here with all the knowledge in the world and you're trying to talk to somebody who is nowhere near it, and you're talking over here, and they're over here; they're not hearing you anyway. IOW, that's like 630 AM and 98.7 FM. The frequencies aren't matching up. Nobody's getting anything about it.

And so, you must understand where you student is, or where the person you're communicating (with) is, and then you get closer to them so that you can call them closer to where you want to be.

But then you don't want to do _that_ often because then you say, "Well, here I am over here in my clarity. And here they are over there in their confusion. So I'll just go over here. So I'll just go over here...Oh, now I'm confused."

And we say should have stayed over there in your clarity.

You say, "Yeah, but they couldn't hear me. So I thought I'd just go get them!"

And we say looks like they got you!

So the most important thing to remember is stay tuned in, tapped in, turned on. It's not your job to teach anybody else anything. Life will teach them. Teach through the clarity of your example. If you're having a hard time communicating with someone, don't communicate with them. It's a waste of words anyway.

Just stay over here and if they catch up with you they'll come over and you'll have a nice conversation and if they don't, they'll go away. And somebody who is up to speed with you will come over and you'll have a nice conversation. But stop trying to convince people against their will. It is vibrationally impossible.

Simultaneous Time: It's Not What You Think

Abraham-Hicks tape 5/8/93

Simultaneous time is something that from Non-physical we acknowledge because we know that whatever we can give our attention to, we are there in that moment. Simultaneous time does not mean what you think it means. It does not mean that everything you have ever lived is right here in the now. It means that you have access to anything that has ever been because you have the ability to vibrate with it, and therefore bring it to you.

Simultaneous time has been misunderstood by almost every physical being who has ever used the word because what you think it means is that your past present and future is all right here... where what it means is all of your power is in your NOW. The only thing that you have any [control over] is where you are vibrating right here and now.

As you are physically focused you do have the ability to connect with non-physical energy that has broader perspective; and this non-physical broader perspective of you does have the ability to look back into the 14th century, the 13th century , the 18th century. But let us tell you something about your Inner Being: Your Inner Being, even in looking back, will never address the Holocaust, because your Inner Being is pure positive energy, so when you do the only thing that you have to notice is you are disconnected from who you are. The source of that which you are you see.

Visualization as Entertainment

Abraham-Hicks, St. Louis, MO, 7/18/00

You go to a movie to be entertained and uplifted, to be distracted, inspired. You go because you think it will be fun, and that's the reason why we want you to visualize. We want you to visualize for the fun of visualizing, to make visualization satisfying to you as much as going to the movies.

Practice your visualization for the pleasure of the vision rather than because its an exercise that'll get you from one place to another. Because when you say, "Here is where I'm standing -- I would like to be over there, and I'm going to do an exercise to get from here to there," what happens when you do that is you are including both vibrations in your mix, but when you say, "I'm gonna visualize this, because it's fun to visualize this, because its uplifting to think about," now you leave that part of the vibration out of the vibration. That's really, really big!

The Universe has the ability to yield to you in ways most of you are not ready to accept or understand. So that's what visualization is all about: it's bringing yourself to a joyful vantage point. It's like painting the most pleasurable picture so that you become a vibrational match to something that you're wanting -- dreaming it into place.

And when you meet those in your environment that have mastered anything -- whether they are a scientist, actor, teacher, singer or parent -- those who are successful and are thrilled and joyful will tell you, "I've dreamed this since i was little -- I imagined it, I pretended
it...," because in that fresh, pure, pure, pure -- you'll keep hearing that word from us -- purity of your vibration comes the alignment of energy. Purity is the alignment of energy.

It doesn't matter what anyone thinks about anything. It only matters what you think about it. Dream your dream for the dream's sake, and never mind about reality or probabilities. That's what's tripping you up, because in the dream you can make it pure, and when you make it pure in your dreams the universe will answer it.

So it boils down to you're dreaming it for the THRILL of dreaming it, not because you're trying to create with it, NOT BECAUSE YOU'RE TRYING TO CREATE WITH IT! That is the fly in the ointment. That is what's keeping most of you from letting your vibration really be pure.

You are all so practical-minded. You say, "Shouldn't I be doing something? Shouldn't I be suffering a little more? I'm taking pleasure from the visualization, but what good is that doing?"You have been taught all of your life to get your head out of the clouds, get your feet on the ground and face reality -- and we say NEVER DO THAT unless reality is really, really, really pleasing to you. Otherwise, take the best parts from the buffet table called Reality -- your life -- and fill in the gaps with your vision.

Abraham Vid: No Gain No Pain

Hate Men? Or Women...but still want a relationship? Good Luck.

Excerpt from Abraham's latest book "The Vortex"- p. 91

She Wants Someone, But Not That One

Jerry: Okay, so what would you say about a woman who seems to feel good about herself, who continues to express her desire for a mate, but who disqualifies them, one by one, as the parade of men moves through her experience?

Abraham: Her desire for a mate keeps the men coming, but her belief in bad relationships causes her to push them away. And her attention to unwanted characteristics makes it impossible for the characteristics that she desires to come her way.

If she is continually focusing upon what she does not like in the men coming to her, her chronic attention to the lack in others is keeping her from being in alignment with Who She Really Is, and under those conditions, she cannot be feeling good about herself or about anyone.

Finding lack in others is not the path to liking what you see in yourself.

If you are a person who has trained yourself to look for positive aspects, you will find them in yourself as well as in others. If you are a person who has trained yourself to look for negative aspects, you will find them in yourself as well as in others. Therefore, it is always accurate to say that no one who is critical of others really likes themselves. It defies Law. Whenever you see those who are very critical of others, you are actually seeing people who do not like themselves.
