Seth on Assassination and Murder

Seth: The Personal Sessions,  aka The Deleted Sessions  9/20/78

Rob: Do you want to say something about my dream, in which I get shot? 

Seth: It was, as I believe Ruburt has mentioned, a result of deep contemplation on your part about the bookstore murder, but in a larger context, involving probabilities, murderers, victims, and the beliefs involved.

The men were all united--that is, they agreed to the circumstances. No one was trying to run away, and in a way the murderer was performing a service. Any violence or hatred serves a purpose beyond itself so that man in a way often performs services of which he is not consciously aware.

I am not saying that man is being manipulated, but that in a larger framework, even his seemingly evil acts have constructive meaning. A man who kills with hatred will have his hatred to contend with, but he is not able to kill anyone who has not decided to die--and to die in a particular manner; that is, someone who wants his death blamed on another, who would not commit suicide, who would not choose a long illness--someone who is ready to die but does not want to deal with the circumstances, and wants indeed to be surprised by death.

Now: in those terms, and in the terms of this discussion, specifically, all assassins are paid assassins hired by the victims. Again, in the terms of this discussion, many murderers are overwhelmed by a sense of guilt, and the murderous act pinpoints the reason for the guilt--so the victim pays the murderer by giving a clear-cut, unassailable reason for a monstrous guilt that was before formless, and even more frightening, since it seemed to have no particular base, but an overwhelming vitality.

Now all of those issues, in one way or another appeared in your dream, where became the victim. You then discovered that you were still 'alive'..."

Whose fault, the infidelity Part 2

Abraham, Boulder, CO  6/5/2005

Continued from Part 1.

Guest (rambling a bit): It's just baffling. I'm trying to get clarity here in that you say, on the one hand, how someone treats you is about you so much more than it is about them. So, maybe he wasn't violent with anyone else, that was my fault. (Snort). And yet, our wedding vows are to be "we'll see how it goes, good feels good, bad feels bad, un, we'll just see how it goes." But then if we focus on one thing out of 6000 that is good, 6000 things that aren't good, then all the other thing will drop away.

Abe: So are you telling us that you met someone who had one good quality in 6000 bad qualities and you developed a relationship with this person?

Guest: Okay, I'm being dramatic.  I tried to focus on the good. But that went away when we got him sober, quite frankly, this chemistry, and earth shattering sex, and yadda yadda yadda. There was more than that. It was an adventure. It was thrilling. It was all these things, and... (exasperated sigh).

Abe: So why are you heartbroken?

Guest: Because I've feel I've let myself down.

Abe: But why are you heartbroken? When you use the word "heartbroken" it's particularly pointed, what's it pointed at?

Guest: Because I want this love that I dream. And I couldn't give it to him, unconditionally; I couldn't love him through it.

Abe: But hear what you're saying. What you're saying is over time I've created what I consider to be the perfect relationship and it's out here being held for me in vibrational escrow. And I so wanted this person to be that, and he wasn't. So we want to say to you in very logical terms, so he's only one in a few million who aren't it, but that doesn't mean that it cannot still come to be.  So why the self-torture about him not matching your dream?

Guest: Because we create it all and I was very arrogant before I met him. I thought I'm with Abraham. I understand this that and the other. I've got it going on. And yet, I called this in? Hello? Sigh. Where do I go from here?

Abe: Well, It's just part of that post-manifestational awareness that we were talking about. IOW, sometimes you have to have an experience to clarify. Do you think that through the experience that what's being held for you in Vibrational Escrow is even shaper and clearer than it was before? Did you do any amending during this experience? So don't you think that now your future reality has even more potential to please you than it did before because of this experience?

IOW, this is what we were talking about earlier, and you are the quintessential example of the reason that we say it. We want so much for you to make peace with where you are. And instead of making peace with where you are, you are beating up on who you are. You're saying, "I did something wrong. I should have known better."

And we say how do you figure anything out if it is not through the exposure to the experience? And so all that happened in this episode of your life is that you you wanted your dream relationship so much that you made a decision based on action without really taking the emotional journey in a full way. And there's no problem with doing that because all that happened as it unfolded was that it showed to you  that this wasn't a perfect match.

That would be like Jerry and Esther from Phoenix on their way to San Diego and taking a wrong turn and heading off into the desert, and then being so mad at themselves that they headed off into the desert that they don't feel worthy of correcting their course and ever getting back to San Diego - just spinning around out in the desert endlessly and saying, "We're so bad. We should have known better. How did we do this stupid thing?"

And we would say instead of beating up on yourself and running around in circles 'til you run out of gas or water, why not get hold of the map? Why not figure out what it is that you want? Why not get headed back in the direction of what you want?

And that's where making peace with yourself comes in. What you want to begin saying is, "Hey, I did the best that I knew how to do then. And I was so eager. He did sort of trick me. He did pretend to be the person that I really wanted him to be. And I let my head lead me, rather than my gut lead me. I let what I wanted be stronger than what I knew.  I felt reservations. I felt plenty of reservations, but I so wanted this to be the one that I disregarded my reservations, and I went along with it only to discover that when you disregard reservations, and there's really a reason for the reservation, the reason for the reservations gets bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger."

Because when there is vibrational variance between who I am and what I say I want and what and what I am allowing myself to have or be or do in this moment, my guidance system is always telling me that, so we can understand how you might be saying to us, I am a little upset that I didn't follow my guidance better. And we say how do you think anyone figures how to follow their guidance? You watch a baby walk and fall down you don't say "get up you little dummy." (laughter). You appreciate the effort and you know that he'll gain his balance. In time, he'll be running and having a good time.

And so when you don't go exactly the way you want to go, you gotta stop saying, "You stupid, little dummy." You gotta start saying, "Hey, that was interesting. Hmmm. Now I understand more clearly what those feelings were about and once it manifested,  I can see the vibrational matches and I just wanted so much to be a deliberate creator and I want so much to get it right and I wanted I wanted so much to get this one thing right that I've wanted for so long."

And we say, you never get it done, and you cannot get it wrong. So you had some experiences that were uncomfortable. We understand that and we do not wish uncomfortable experiences on you. But what we do know is that you've gotta give yourself a break and say, "Hey, I attracted that to me because it was active in my vibration in some way  and now I got the full dose of what was active in my vibration. I think I'm going to do a little cleaning up of my vibration before I let the next one in, you see.

Abraham: Whose fault, Infidelity? Part 1

Abraham, Boulder, CO  6/5/2005

Guest: Last we spoke on the Mexican Cruise, you said, you know, if I continue knee-jerk responding then I'd continue to have the same outcome.

So I return from the cruise with my fiancĂ©, turn on the printer one afternoon, and it was already in queue, and this really adorable young lady's profile from popped out, and I moved out. And I kneejerk reacted, yes. And this is what's really hard for me. Because I still can't wrap my brain, my feelings around that the way ppl treat you is more about you, than it is about them; so my girlfriends, who are psychologists, are really angry with you because they think that you are keeping women, or anybody, but it's like a Battered Woman's Syndrome: well, your created it, you created it, you created it.  It's your fault. And that's why the tears now.

Abraham: They are right to be mad at us because we will not tell you something different than we know. IOW, on the one hand you could say that by us saying to you that you are the creator of your own reality could be blame-pointing, or you could say it is empowering. When you're not getting something that you want, and you feel mad at yourself because you're not getting something you want, we can see how uncomfortable that would be,  but how much more uncomfortable is it to believe that it is someone else's creation, and you can't control what they do?

What was it that you were so angry with him about?

Guest: Well, you know, I did want him to be different. There was drug addiction; there was volatility and abuse, and the gambling, and all this stuff. In the beginning...

Abraham: So was this person a match to the perfect relationship that through time that you have launched into your vibrational escrow?

Guest: I focused on the good in the beginning. And then I...

Abraham: And what happened when you were focused upon the good?

Guest: It felt great.

Abe: And beyond how it felt what happened to the relationship?

Guest: Well...

Abraham: IOW, here's where we're getting at. Sometimes people will say to us, "Abraham, I want a partner, and I want a partner now."  And we say, is that...Stay with us, we're really going to get to where you want to go. We can feel you tuning away, because you think we're dragging you away from where you want to go... But we are just preparing the basis to drag you to where you don't want to go. (audience laughter.)

Some people will say, "But Abraham, I want my partner and I want my partner now." And we say well,  if the now factor is the most important thing to you, and you really emphasize that in your vibration, the Universe is going to match you up quickly, but it will match you up quickly with what's active in your vibration right now. So if you've had past hurts, or past things that you don't like that are still active in your vibration, and you insist that the relationship come now now now now now, when it gets there while you might be thrilled that it came now, as you begin to sort through it, it may not be exactly what you are looking for.

So then we say, as you approach or evaluate some partner, they are multi-faceted, many components. You could become so pure in your vibration of expecting to get from this person what you've been telling the Universe all along that you want,  that if the universe has delivered this person to you, and if your vibration is really in alignment with what you want, this person must be a vibrational match to what you want.

Now people say, "Well, where does free will come in? What if that person doesn't want to be like that?" We say then the Universe would not have brought you together. But what happens is, most of you have got your vibration going all over the place, so it's sort of like a  grab bag of potential experiences that you can have with most people. And so there are things that you love about relationships, and things you hate about relationships,  but we would not have moved out for this reason: we want to say to you in this powerful, powerful way, that if there was so much there that you were feeling satisfied with, and if you could have trained your own vibration into alignment with the parts of that relationship that you like the most,  you could have this wonderful relationship with those parts of this person, but where it gets screwy is...

It's sort of like coming to Boulder and having a wonderful meal at this restaurant next door, and having a good time at a seminar, or wherever, and then being angry with the City of Boulder that every aspect of it could not meet your expectations. And we say, well, the City of Boulder is a diverse place, and so why not just find the parts of it that you do resonate with and live in those parts? But relative to a city you never say, "No, the rest of the city of needs to clean up its act, so that it all pleases me."

We know where you are going with this and we know where your psychologist friends are going with it, and we know where most of the female population, and a small part of the male population on the planet, is going with this, and that is "I should own this person. He should not have thoughts that are other than me. He should not have interests that are outside of me. He should make a commitment only to me."

It is illogical to expect any other human to come wholly to you, and if you could just be thrilled with the parts that are coming to you, larger and larger parts would come to you, but it's defying the Laws of the Universe to want to completely own anyone.

Guest: I so don't feel that I wanted to own him. And..

Abe: Then why did it upset you when a piece of paper came out of a printer that showed...

Guest: It was a culmination of, as I mentioned drug addiction, and abuse, and gambling.  I wanted to look anywhere else...(sic)

Abe: So where are you at here with this?

Guest: I'm heartbroken. I know that I failed myself. I failed him.

Abe: Heartbroken because... I fell in love with parts of a person who had other parts I couldn't fall in love with. You hear that? He needed to be different for me to fall in love with all of the parts of him. Well, how disempowering is that?

Seth Classic: Practicing Idealist

Seth, The Individual and the Nature of Mass Events, Session 873, p. 301,  08/15/79

Seth: In a manner of speaking, you must be a practicing idealist if you are to remain a true idealist for long. You must take small practical steps, often when you would prefer to take giant ones — but you must move in the direction of your ideals through action. Otherwise you will feel disillusioned, or powerless, or sure, again, that only drastic, highly unideal methods will ever bring about the achievement of a given ideal state or situation.

Life at all levels of activity is propelled to seek ideals, whether of a biological or mental nature. That pursuit automatically gives life its zest and natural sense of excitement and drama. Developing your own abilities, whatever they may be, exploring and expanding your experience of selfhood, gives life a sense of purpose, meaning, and creative excitement — and also adds to the understanding and development of the society and the species.

It is not enough to meditate, or to imagine in your mind some desired goal being accomplished, if you are afraid to act upon the very impulses to which your meditations and imaginings give rise. When you do not take any steps toward an ideal position, then your life does lack excitement. You become depressed. You might become an idealist in reverse, so that you find a certain excitement in contemplating the occurrence of natural disasters, such as earthquakes.

You may begin to concentrate your attention on such activities. You may contemplate the end of the world instead, but in either case you are propelled by a sense of personal frustration, and perhaps by some degree of vengeance, seeing in your mind the destruction of a world that fell so far beneath your idealized expectations.

None of the unfortunate situations discussed in this book have any power over you, however, if you understand that events do not exist by themselves. All events and situations exist first within the mind. At the deepest levels of communication no news is secret, whether or not you receive it by way of your technological gadgets.

Your thoughts and beliefs and desires form the events that you view on television. If you want to change your world, you must first change your thoughts, expectations, and beliefs. If every reader of this book changed his or her attitudes, even though not one law was rewritten, tomorrow the world would have changed for the better. The new laws would follow.

Any new law always follows the change in belief. It is not the other way around.

There is no civilization, no system of science, art, or philosophy, that did not originate in the mind. When you give lip service to ideas with which you do not agree, you are betraying your own ideals, harming yourself to some extent, and society as well, insofar as you are denying yourself and society the benefit of your own understanding. Each person is an idealist. I simply want to help you practice your idealism in the acts of your daily life.

Each person alive helps paint the living picture of civilization as it exists at any given time, in your terms. Be your own best artist. Your thoughts, feelings and expectations are like the living brush strokes with which you paint your corner of life's landscape. If you do your best in your own life, then you are indeed helping to improve the quality of all life. Your thoughts are as real as snowflakes or raindrops or clouds. They mix and merge with the thoughts of others, to form man's livingscape, providing the vast mental elements from which physical events will be formed.

The Visualization Process Is Your Purpose in Life

Abraham-Hicks Quarterly Journal Jul/Aug/Sep 1996

Abraham: What your purpose in life is, is the visualization process. To look around and see it like it is and then imagine it better. Look around and see it like it is and then imagine it better. The visualization process is your purpose of life. The Universe will match it with the physical equivalent.

The tricky thing is to not keep getting swept up in the physical equivalent so much that you lose sight of your ability to visualize. Can you hear it? The temptation is to then start observing. The temptation is to just start observing, to let what's happening around you to dominate your every thought. Your work is to keep pulling yourself back.

You go to the gym to work your muscles. We want you to go the Creation Box to work your mind. We want you to work at visualization. It's not going to come easy in the beginning. It's going to be hard. Other things are going to call you off. You're going to find your mind wandering all over the place. You are going to have to work at maintaining a focus. To maintain a focus and feel good can take a strong deliberate intent because it's easier to follow those knee-jerk reactions. Those old habits are very well entrenched.

Your purpose in the physical experience is to use the data that abounds to collect the bits and pieces of it to create a scenario that rocks your world--and when you do that, the Universe will respond with a vibrational equivalent. But we want so much for you to hear that the vibrational equivalent--the physical manifestation--is not what it's about. It's the power of the vision.

Head in the Clouds/Pollyanna vs Dynamic Living

Abraham, Mexican Cruise, 01/23/10:

Guest: I find myself, okay, majority of the time in a really happy place. I don't really look at reality, I just try to be in a place where I feel really good. And so I'm looking for a feeling...

Abraham: Now, we want to just ask you a question, all of you:

So did we make it sound to you like we want you to ignore reality, and just find the feeling place, and then just feel your way around, or did you understand us to say ignore reality because it's easier then to feel your way into the Vortex, then you tune into the whole of Who You Are, and then you give your undivided attention to Life?

That's quite a different subject, isn't it? And some of you aren't quite making the jump. You've got the ignoring the reality part down, and you've got the feeling for something..that's why they call you Pollyanna, but you're sort of, you've got your head in the clouds because you're not really focusing. In other words, we want you to do it all.

We want you to ignore reality long enough to get into the Vortex, knowing that once you are in the Vortex that your undivided attention will cause you then to devour Life.

In other words, when you are conversing with someone who is tuned in and passionate about something, they're not ever accused of being Pollyanna. They're talking about future worlds; they're talking about dynamic things; they're talking about new technology; they're talking about new inventions; they're talking philosophy; they're talking about the best of life; they're talking about how Life is good to them in this way and this way and this way and this way.

We're not suggesting that you go to the Vortex and you sit over dinner and then someone says, "Hi how are you?"

And you say, "Flow and Ease."

And they say, "Did you move into your new house?"

And you say, "Appreciation. Clarity. Blissful."

That's not what we're encouraging. We want you to use the tools to tune in, so that you can give them the real response when someone says, "How are you doing?" and you say, "I have never been better. It's as if everything that I've ever lived is all queued up for this moment." You'll give them a hair blowing back experience, but they won't call you Pollyanna.

Guest: Maybe that was the wrong choice.

Abraham: "I never felt better in my life. Everything is going my way. Abundance is flowing. Ideas are flowing. Books are flowing through me. People are coming everywhere. Anything I want I can be or do or have."

"How are you?"

"Check," they'll say, "Check," but they won't call you 'Pollyanna'.

Dead or Alive: There is No Separation Between the Vortex and You

Abraham answers a question about what happens to dead people in Sydney, Australia on 12/13/09

Abraham: And everything that you hear us do through the words that we express through Esther, or the books that we express through Esther, every effort that we make to help you understand... is to help you understand the wholeness of you: that we are all in this together,  that there is not a separation between that which you call Physical and that which you call Non-Physical, but for your lackful vibration that deprives you of it.

Now think about what we just said to you. So in this Vortex where all of the aspects of everything that you're asking for are, and where your Inner Being is, where the larger part of you is,  where the solutions to all things that you want are - it is from that vantage point that all new energies come forth -  this Vortex is this vibrational place that you can tune yourself to, and when you tune yourself to it...

And here's the reason that we love this question more than we can convey to you, and the answer even more than we can convey to you  is because when you get into the Vortex, you get to see what Source sees. You'll be the Lover that Source is, you see, and yet you want to make what Source sees entirely different than what you see when you're happy, or than what you see when your elated.

But think about those masters of your society, the Masters of Sport, of the Masters of Music, or the Masters of Art,  or the Masters...those that you revere, those that you see who have tuned themselves to the creative energies and have expressed themselves in the most fantastic ways: What are they painting about, what are they singing about, what are they writing about?  They're writing about what Source sees out here on this Leading Edge It's time to accept the bigness, and the wholeness and the goodness of this Physical World that is an extension of Source, and stop trying to hold out for this "Heaven" that man has conjured that he separates himself from every time he condemns himself for not being good. (applause)

When you get in the Vortex and those things occur to you, those thoughts that are occurring to you are the thoughts of Source. IOW, That's what we were talking about earlier as you choose the feeling and you tune yourself to it. You can tune yourself right in and you can answer for yourself exactly how Source sees and what Source sees, and no words that you'll ever hear from anyone else will ever be anything close to satisfying once you've gotten into the Vortex and you've taken a look and a whiff and listen and a feel and a sniff to what Source sees and hears and smells, you see.

How to Leave Childhood Insecurities Behind

Guest: I've done a lot of belief work and I've found the beliefs that when I get very up, when I get very excited, enthusiastic there are certain beliefs I've found that bring me down.  And of course, I activate them, but I've discovered the beliefs are basically "I'm not worthy", "I'm not good enough", basically garden variety beliefs. And I've worked hard...

Abraham: And what is a belief other than a thought you keep thinking. The word 'belief' makes it sound power and important doesn't it. A thought that you keep thinking just makes it sound like a thought that you keep thinking. So we want to play with you a little bit and say, why do you keep thinking a thought that doesn't feel good and you say, "Well, because it's a belief!" We say, Yes, but why would you continue to beat the drum of something that doesn't feel good when you beat the drum of it, you see. Do you have an answer?

Guest: I was taught it very forcefully when I was young and that's my guess.

Abraham: Because you were wanting to please someone else?

Guest: Sure. I was wanting to believe the person that taught me these things. Because they were important to me, their respect was important to me.

Abraham: Yes.

Guest. And now it's hard to shake, isn't it? These beliefs don't make sense, and yet they still arise under certain scenarios.

Abraham: Do you think the person that taught then to you...what do you think their greatest motive was? In other words, when someone teaches you something what do you think their motive is for imparting this information to you?

Guest: I could think of ... my brother gave me a lot of these messages. He wanted to make me tough. He he wanted me to be a tough little brother, so he said means things to me to make me strong, I guess, that was his....

Abraham: But do you think his true motive was?

Guest: To make himself feel better? I don't know.

Abraham: But related to you, in other words, if you are guiding someone and giving them what you consider to be your best information, what's your motive? Why do you guide someone? Why do you teach them to be tough? Because you believe they will be better off if they are tough. Why do you teach them the things that you do? IOW, there are few exceptions to the reason being you believe that it is the best for them. IOW most people that are guiding you in most ways, are doing so...

It's like our friend said earlier, his sister is trying to save him. She's not trying to send him to Hell. She's trying to send him to Heaven. She's trying to save him from what she sees are problems. And most people who are guiding you in most ways, really, really mean well, you see.

And so when you say, What do I do now about shaking those beliefs that no longer serve me?  We say get to the bottom of the reason that somebody tried to impart them to you to begin with and accept that that reason was that they wanted you to thrive and they wanted things to go well for you, and then just fast forward to things going well for you, and then thank them for their part in it.

That's a really fast way to shift those beliefs because when you say to someone, "You taught me things that don't serve me. You taught me things that I hate. You taught me things that are wrong." All they do is puff up and try to teach you more of them.

But when you say, "Thank you, for your part, in helping me to be the joyous person that I am" it is our promise for you that in the majority of cases they were wanting your success, and when you emmanate your thriving, many of them they are soothed and then they press less hard about the details that they are trying to teach you.

Guest: And that's what's happening now in my relationship with my brother, but those beliefs still arise.

Abraham: You see what happens, when you're little, or when you're not little, but when you are feeling insecure, and you express your insecurity to someone else,  they want to help you. They want to teach you something.

And so what happens to a lot of you is you felt insecure, you ask others to help you feel more secure,  and then they started giving you their opinion which now you resent. And we say, in the majority of cases they wouldn't have been trying to help you if you weren't feeling vulnerable and asking for something from them, you see.

And so now what's happening and we hear this, you know this, but what happens is... So you were insecure, and from your insecure place, you attracted somebody who tried to tell you what to do. And now you're not insecure anymore, you want them to go away.  And we want to say to you they wouldn't even be there if there wasn't still some of that vibration of insecurity within you, you see.

And that's why your question was worded so perfectly when you say, "I guess I've got these beliefs."  And that's why we said, "And what's a belief. It's a thougth you keep thinking. So, are you feeling how full circle we've come?

You don't have to go back and unlearn those things. You don't have to back and stop believing those things. You just have to believe so clearly, which means practice so clearly, the thoughts that feel good to you when you practice them now,  and only things that match what you're offering now vibrationally can come to you, you see. You can attract the best of your now brother to you now, but you got to stop beating the drum of who he was or who you were, or how what he said affected you then, or how what he said affects you now. Yes?

Abraham on Divorce and Being a Happy Family Living Apart

Guest: Hi. I have a situation with my former husband I thought that would get better as a result of the divorce, but it seems to be getting increasingly worse, and I have a very hard time overcoming these resentment feelings that I have towards him - though we have made lots of alterations so that we don't even have to see each other. Nonetheless...

Abraham: Well, how do you feel, in general terms, about the idea of a divorce, not necessarily yours, but anyone's? How does the idea of divorce hit you when you first think about it?

Guest: I have mixed feelings. I think that it's painful, but that it could be an extremely positive thing in that it enables people to move on into happiness that could not be reached within the marriage.

Abraham: Most people still feel, even in your evolved and moving forward society, that it is better not to divorce than to divorce. In other words, most people equate divorce with some sort of a failure, as some sort of a breaching of a promise that was made.

In other words, they don't say, I'm going to the market and I'm going to get gas, and I'm going to get a divorce. They don't put it into that sort of category. They call it one of those life altering things that I prayed about, and I suffered about, and I got counseling about, and they make it a very big thing.

And what we notice with most people, not all, but most, is that when they are contemplating a divorce, or a separation of a relationship, or after they have done it, because part of them feels that they should not have done it, then they spend quite a big amount of time justifying the reasons for having done it. So they don't get on with that better life that they hoped for, instead, they hold themselves in vibrational bondage, so to speak, by continuing to activate their reasons of justification about leaving.

So even though they want to feel better, they keep justifying or defending why they left which holds them in a sort of vibrational quagmire. Again, it's that same sort of chaotic vibration that you have to clean up before you can start feeling better. When you said, I have mixed feelings about it, we want to say, "Alright, pick one, and make it the right feeling."

IOW are you noticing a pattern here? I have mixed feelings about this, on the one hand I think it was a good thing that I did it, and on the other hand, it was upsetting to my family and for me, it was probably the best thing, but my mate is having a hard time moving on, or whatever, and so just pick: I've made the decision and I've done this and it was a good thing for me to do for these reasons. And as you look for the positive aspects of what you have done, instead of for the defending reasons of why you've done it... what happens is your vibration clears up and then it gets better and better and better.

Guest: This has to do with our children. This is the only reason why we have to stay in contact with each other. And there is huge disagreements (sic) about the children.

Abraham: Well, we want to give you something that you may not have considered. Every relationship, whether you like it or not, or whether you know it or not, every relationship is eternal. And so just like that stuff that we were talking about that has a vibration, all of these people -- even your children, your children have the activated vibration of both of their parents within them. In other words, their relationship with each of you is always active, and so for you to think that you can put enough distance, or enough time, between you and someone you've been with in that way, you cannot ever, you just have to accept that it is an eternal relationship, and stop trying to sever it the way that you tried to sever it by divorce.

IOW, that's the thing that goes so wrong with with most people who attempt divorce is they attempt the impossible. They say, we'll get legal documents, we'll get the judge to declare us separated. And we say you can't get separated from somebody like that. You're not really separated from the person you met in the elevator for a while, there's vibrational merging that has taken place, you see, so stop trying to accomplish the impossible,

Instead say, "Alright, we have this relationship. Not we had a relationship,  not we had a marriage, but we have a relationship, and now I am going to approach this relationship in the way that serves me best which means I'm going to think the thoughts that feel best to me about this relationship.

Can you feel the difference? We want to teach you to soothe your energy because we know, we have an aerial view, we see all the stuff you want; we see it all lined up outside your door, and we know all we need to do is help you to soothe yourself, and the stuff you want will come in.

We're not trying to soothe you so that you'll get back together with him, we're trying to soothe you so you can get back together with you. IOW, you can't think mean thoughts about somebody -- no matter how justified they are -- without separating you from Who You Are because that's not Who You Are. You're a lover even if they don't deserve it. You're an unconditional lover even if they don't deserve it, you see.

Almost all of you are offering your thoughts, and your words, and your actions, because you're still trying to defend the action that you took which you are still trying to justify. And we want to say to you, you don't have to justify it. You made the right decision. It's alright that this divorce has happened, now just get back together with you, and you're going to discover, maybe not right away, but eventually, that it's a lot easier on you to love this person, and it will be a lot easier on your children for you to love this person.

We were visiting with a woman recently who had an upheaval with her brother. And to hear her tell it, it was all his fault. But the longer she talked, the longer you could see, he shoved her a little, and she shoved him, and he shoved her, and she shoved him. And before long neither one of them were even close to Who They Are and they both blamed each other for how they were feeling.

You just gotta bring yourself back into vibrational alignment and when you do, not that your family will come back together, in the way it did physically, but you will back into alignment with yourselves individually, and then you'll be a happy family that no longer lives together.

What you really want is to live happily apart, not just to "Be Apart" and live however that turns out. You want to be happy first, and apart. Or happy first, and together, but happy is what matters you see.

And you've got control about that, really, you do.

Guest: Thank you.

Abraham: Yes, indeed.

False Choice Between Your Church's Agenda and Call of Source

Guest: I was raised in a very strict, oppressive religion; I was raised specifically in the Morman Church. And as I follow my guidance system, and as I learn this, it feels so good. And where this initially came from was the day I was so frustrated: I said everyone has an agenda. My mom's agenda is to get me to go to this church. And the Church's agenda is to get me to go here. And my friends just want me to go out and get drunk... 

I just want some guidance. (snip) I'm having such a hard time because this feels so good, but there are some aspects of it that conflict with my beliefs and what I was raised (with)...that are so core, it feels like that's me, and that's Source, and how can i leave that religion behind without feeling that I'm disconnecting from Source and from God?

Abraham: Well, we think the thing that is most bothersome about this is it feels to you like you have to choose this, and by choosing this, whatever it is,  push against that. In other words it's like saying I say "Yes" to you, and I say "No" to you. And what we want you to understand is that in the same way that there are aspects of what you are hearing here that are appealing to you - some will resonate with what they hear from Abraham, some will resonate (with) what they hear from someone else.  Don't ask anything to be the right thing for everyone, just pick from it what is right for you where you are and let it be the next logical step for you. 

So when you look at your church and you say it served me so well and still serves me so well in this aspect, and this aspect, and this aspect. You don't have to close the door on something. And what may be troubling you is that church is like almost every other church, it wants you to close the door on everything else.  It wants to say to you, everything that you are looking for is here.

And the reason that that flies in the face of the eternal expanding universe of which you are intuitively a part is because you know that something that has been created cannot stand still. IOW, everything has to continue to expand. And so you in your life experience are becoming more than what your understanding of what that particular chuch is allowing you to become. And so you are feeling sort of bound by it, and then you feel guilty as you try to move beyond it.

And we say the True Essence of that church, and every other, would say to you that you are an Eternal Being, would say to you that the The Source that you are reaching for you have access to. So don't say "No" to it, just say "Yes" to the aspects of Life that are calling you and you will discover that the connection to Source that you at one time looked for there, can be in many different places that it doesn't reside within A Religion it doesn't reside within the walls of a building, it resides in the Universal Forces and  it is a vibration that you tune into and you and you have access to it you see.

And then don't go running around, as most in most churches do, and  proclaim that you found something so much better, just live your alignment and when you live your alignment you find value everywhere you look you see.

Seth on Botox. (Sort of.)

Seth,  03/02/76

Seth: Now: it may seem to most people that an exuberant, always-vital, energetic, healthy body would indeed be one of the greatest gifts of all--a body that never worried or showed signs of any disorder, a body that went ahead on its own, so to speak, propelled by feelings of strength and vigor.

This certainly sounds like a fine ideal. Yet I tell you that in such a body you would finally feel like a prisoner, for your moods and reflections, your feelings and your thoughts, would find no responsive mirror in your flesh.

You would wear a constant smile, and your blooming cheeks would often deny the heart's hard-earned knowledge.

It is natural and HEALTHY to yearn for a comfortable body if you are in health difficulties. The body, however, is NOT an assumed facade, but the physical materialization in your world of your inner being. All of nature is responsive, pliant, changing, each part connected with each other part.

It is quite natural, then, that during a lifetime you experience various assorted periods of temporary illness.

These will be caused by your beliefs and your feelings, but they will not be necessarily negative at all, but a demonstration of the body's responsiveness. It is not realistic to expect a life of unending, exuberant health, with no momentary lapses of any kind.

Such momentary lapses follow personal and cultural patterns. Some generations fall heir to certain fashionable diseases, for example. The body copes with inner and exterior reality, and performs a marvelous job of maintaining multitudinous balances.

Ideally, the body would always right itself after such lapses from exuberant health--but even those lapses often exercise that resiliency. Maintaining that resiliency, then, is the important issue. Many such lapses are exaggerated because of your beliefs, so that they are experienced in a more drastic form than necessary. GENERALLY drugs impede that resiliency.

Often your medical beliefs as a culture stabilize conditions that, left alone, would right themselves. As you know, this can apply for example to children being given eyeglasses. IN THE SITUATION IN WHICH YOU FIND YOURSELVES, however, eyeglasses become a more practical alternative because you do not possess the proper mental methods to offset the current belief system.

The mind may want to react. The individual may realize that his or her pace has been too fast, and so natural feelings bring about a lethargy of body, or a slight fever, or an indisposition--all quite natural, resilient activities. I do not want this ever to be interpreted to mean, a priori, and in conventional terms, that "suffering is good for the soul". A reliance and faith in the natural self, however, would be large enough to accept certain indispositions without fear, panic, or doubt.

With the best of intent most public health announcements shout the symptoms of critical diseases to the skies, so that the smallest of indispositions become the trigger for personal fear on the part of millions. Such announcements actually teach people to fear what might be happening within the body. There is a stress upon disease rather than health.

When such beliefs are shared by an entire society, then the slightest indisposition is instantly suspect.

He Wants A Million Dollars But He Doesn't Want To Go Work For It Part 3

Part One here, and Part Two here.

Guest: I was wondering if I was creating too big, if I was trying to make something too big, and the gap between what I wanted and where I am was too big and that was causing some of the grief.

Abraham: Well surely a million dollars is not too big from where you stand. That's just not too big.

Guest: It's actually wasn't even a million dollars, it's $150,000.  The million was just something I made up. (Laughs.)

Abraham: Esther was listening to Donald Trump, and she was listening to the words he chose. And he uses words like "Oh, it's a juggernaut. Oh, it's a sure success. Oh, it's the most sensational building that has ever been built. We're building the most beautiful building in Chicago that has ever been built. Oh, it's magnificent. Oh that person is a friend of mine."

And as she listened, she began to realize that he's figured it out. Now he annoys most of the world, but you know what? He doesn't care. He has developed a relationship between what he wants and where he is even when what he wanted and where he was were not in the same place, you would not know it to hear him. In other words, he continued to tell the story the way he wanted it to be, and so the Universe continues to yield to him. Now there are all kind of people that say, "Oh he's a braggart. Oh, of course he can talk like that, he's a billionaire." And we say he wasn't always, he was talking like that and then he became that you see.

And so, you don't have to follow his lifestyle or his personality, but you do have to follow the success principals that he's found. You gotta talk about what you want. You gotta tell it like you want it to be. You can't face reality and have reality change in any way. You've gotta face the parts of reality that you love, and fill in the gaps with things that you get from your imagination or from your expectation. 

And before you know it, you see... And so here you are and you've got a lot of good things in your life which you accentuate and talk about and appreciate and make lists of. So you make lists of positive aspects and you get on rampages of appreciation, and you look for good wherever you see it, and you feel good as much as you can.

And then you have goals that you don't know how you're going to achieve. So then, you fill those in with imagination and visualization and pretending. And then as you start doing that you'll have a dream about it that makes it feel more real. Or you'll meet somebody that's really living that way. Or you'll turn on the television and somebody will be talking just like you've been imagining. Or you'll pick up a book. Or you'll hear another interview. In other words, the Universe will help you to rendezvous with whatever the vibration is that you've finally achieved.

And little by little, you just work yourself in to where you've filled in the gaps that you're not now living with your vibration as you've used your imagination. The Universe does not know the difference between someone who has a million dollars and someone who just feels like they have a million dollars.

And when you feel like you have it, your vibration is such that Law of Attraction must line you up with things like that. And that's true whether you're talking about relationships; whether you're talking about the building of empires; whether you're talking about attracting people to help you with your business, It doesn't matter what it is, you've got to find the vibration of it, and you've got to practice the vibration of it until the vibration of your desire, supersedes the Vibration of your Doubt. And when the vibration of desire supersedes your Vibration of Doubt, Bam. It happens.

He Wants A Million Dollars But He Doesn't Want To Go Work For It Part 2

Part One here.

Guest: It seems like the resistance is so subtle; it's like its somewhere in the background of the drama you don't even recognize it.

Abraham: We wouldn't call it "subtle", well, maybe that's a good word for it, but we would use a more blunt word, and that is "I've practiced contradictory thoughts so long, that they feel natural."

And so when you start imagining having a million dollars, and we're going to play here with you for just a little bit, but when you start imagining what that means, and we don't want you to just get a million dollars and stop, you're going to want a million dollars always at your disposal. You're going to want to spend that and have another on its heels, because we promise you once you get used to millions of dollars moving through your experience, a million dollars won't last you very long.  Because you begin to live in a way...and... your property taxes go way up.

So what is it that we are wanting you to trust in? The fact that you can be or do or have anything.  How is that we want you to approach it? Slowly and gently. We want you to be happy with where you are. You have to make peace with where you are. 

So you can't say, "Oh my life is miserable, and I have to do all these things I don't want to do and boy if I had a million dollars then I wouldn't do any of these things because... can you feel how jumbled the energy is?

What you're saying is "Universe, I'm miserable and unhappy where I stand, please give me something that will make it better." And the Universe says, "Sorry, we can only give you more things that will make you miserable," because that's the vibe you're offering.

And you say, well how do I offer something other than...I want to be over there and I'm over here.

And we say well, talk about what's over there. And most people have a very difficult time talking about what's over there because they've been talking so long and hard with such detail about what's over here that that's what is active in their vibration. And that's why we're talking about these emotional journey. You've got to talk yourself into a different vibe and then different things will come to you.

Part 3 here.

He Wants A Million Dollars But He Doesn't Want To Go Work For It Part 1

Guest: I want to go create million dollars, but I don't want to go to work for it.

Abraham: Well, your statement is really telling and really important because what you're saying is " I want a million dollars, and I believe that there are ways to get a million dollars that I don't want to do." So what you're doing is saying, "I want this, but I don't want this," and that's not a very powerful state of being because you're setting  contradiction up right away.

So you soften that by saying, "I want a million dollars and I want to find a way that is compatible with me to receive it." Now there's less resistance in that. You say, "I want a million dollars, and I know that there are a lot of people who have a million dollars, who got it in a way that would be not be uncomfortable to me."

But when you say, "I want a million dollars, but there is no one  I'm going to inherit it from; or I want a million dollars, but nobody that I know is going to die and leave it to me... IOW, you've got to stop the contradiction.

When you talk about what you want, and why you want it, there is usually less resistance within you than when you talk about what you want and how you're going to get it because when you pose questions that you don't have answers for like how, where, when,who, then it sets up a contradiction vibration within you that slows everything down.

Statements such as "There must surely be many people on this planet today, who have a million dollars, and in excess of it, who at one time were standing right where I am, just wanting it, and having no idea how it was going to come. Feel how resistance-free that statement is.

Words like "Faith" and "Trust" are so annoying on some levels, but we want to explain to you the value of them because even though you don't know how, or where, or when, or who, if you know what, and you've talked about why you want it, and you've practiced the thought of it until it's starting to feel very familiar to you, what begins to happen is things that couldn't happen to you now, begin happening, and ideas that wouldn't even occur to you now,  begin to occur to you, and rendezvous with people that you don't have access to now, begin to happen, and when your million and many more come to you, you will wonder where it always was.

Reality is Old News

Abraham, Phoenix AZ, 12/5/09

You want to say, "Reality is OLD NEWS!"

Even what's manifested right now, it's old news, it's past tense. The money in my bank account right now is past tense. My physical bodily conditions right now are past tense.

They're past tense because there is a vibrational reality that's new and vivid and current, and it's who I really am, and it's based on that (which) all of my emotions ARE.

Who is God? Your Spiritual Guide.

Abraham, Sydney, Australia 12/13/09

Abraham: You have to know that since we are vibrationally projecting, since we are all vibration, that it isn't possible for this creation of you to be standing there singularly. You are vibrationally a cooperative component with so much more,  and it is that cadre of vibration that man sometimes calls "God" that is your Spiritual Guide, you see. It doesn't matter what label you give it.

Someone said to us, "Abraham I have come from religion and I don't hear you speak much of God," and we said we don't talk about anything else. But we don't talk about it in the way you've been hearing it because you talk about God from outside the Vortex and we talk about God from inside the Vortex. You talk about God as if you are not God, and we know that you are that which you call God.You talk about God as if you are separated from God, and we talk about God with the intention of bringing you into alignment and Oneness with that which you call God. And mostly, we don't use the word God because it takes you out of the Vortex.

You talk about God as One Who Punishes.  You've made God petty, and immature, and irrational, and arbitrary, and we know nothing like that in this Vortex of Creation. There is only consistent, eternal, always-offered Unconditional Love that is God, you see. And when you find something other than that, you've tuned into something different from that, you see. And so if we were standing in your physical shoes, that is the Spiritual Guide we would be reaching for and your emotions will take you right to it.

You will find it through Love and you will find it through Passion. You will find it through Eagerness, and through Happiness and through Joy. You will find it through Trust. You will find it through Worthiness. You will find it through  Satisfaction. You will find it through reaching for Ease and Flow, Ease and Flow. In other words, it's a feeling. It's an emotion. It is a State of Being which is represented to you by the way you feel.

So when someone says, " Who is God"

You say, "It is Love."

And they say, "No, not what does it feel like, Who is It?"

"It is Love."

"Well, have you seen God?"

I know God. I feel God. It is Knowledge. It is Certainty. It is Sureness. It is Stability. It is Wellness. It is Friskiness.

What is it with Baldness / Hair Loss Anyway?

Abraham, Asheville, NC 05/31/09

Guest: What is it with male pattern baldness. Why is it we lose our hair? And most people in the same spot?

Abraham: Don't look over there! (Abraham and guest look at Jerry – crowd laughs) Well it's expectation. It isn't only that you inherit the propensity which is expectation also, but after you inherit the propensity, you inherit the expectation. You just get what you expect. That's why there are much more significant issues on the same subject.. like why do we decline as we move through time? The answer is your manifestations follow the pattern of your thought. Your thought creates resistance.

Guest: Can we bring it back?

Abraham: If you are willing to get in the vortex about it, your body will respond. You have the wherewithal to get any physical condition you are asking for. Could you get taller? Yes. Could you get stronger? Yes. Could you feel more vital? Yes. Can you change the nature of your physical body? Yes. But what if my hormones or my chemistry has changed? Well, your body has changed in response to your expectations.

Let's go deeper. Let's talk about cellular expectations. Do I have the ability to focus my mind in such a way to influence the behavior of those cells? Absolutely! Most people don't believe they can, so they don't bother trying. In other words, most people just accept what is, and complain about it. Almost every behavior you see when people are wanting to reduce, or change their bodies in some way, almost all of that behavior is out-of-the-vortex behavior, where if they work hard, and struggle hard enough then they believe they will get results and they get the results to the degree that they expect them.

But oh, wouldn't it be wonderful to get in the vortex, to line up with who you really are, and from inside the vortex utilize the energy that creates worlds to flow towards something that you want. If a healer can influence wellness in another who is sick, surely that same healer can shift the cells in his own body!

Guest: Wouldn't it be better to just get in the vortex and try to get comfortable about not having the hair now?

Abraham: Well, that's the starting place. If you get in the vortex and then focus on that subject then the vortex will spit you out. So the first step in staying in the vortex on that subject is to make peace with what-is. You've been hearing us talking about making peace with what-is. Making peace with it means not pushing against it. And not pushing against it is like meditation. When you make peace with it, there is no longer resistance, and now the vortex takes you right in.

Guest: And then you ask for it?

Abraham: You've already asked for it. Now you line up with what you've asked for. Just get your mind off it. If we were standing in your physical shoes, no matter what issue we were trying to find improvement on, we would just use any excuse we could find all day long to get in the vortex. We'd just get in no matter what! Why? To improve your life? Sure. To get stuff you want? Of course. But the REASON we'd get in the vortex is it just feels so good! Clarity feels so good! Surefootedness feels so good! Worthiness feels so good! Certainty in who I am and my well-being feels so good.

We'd get in the vortex because it feels good, not because getting in there will give me the goodies. All the goodies you want, you want because you want to feel good. So when you get in there and feel good they've all gotta come. Just don't be worried about the vortex spitting you out. Now you know how to get right back in. You do. You know how to get back in. You've ust gotta want to be in. Gotta find thoughts that help you in. And don't start with the hard stuff.

Abraham (Kind Of Sort Of) Admits That Change Can Be Hard

Abraham, San Rafael, CA 8/2/09

Focus is effort because Law of Attraction will hold you to your dominant
vibration. Thinking about having more money is not as easy as noticing you don't have enough money.

It takes more effort to imagine beyond what is. It's easy to turn on the television and watch what they are offering. It's more difficult to think your own thought. It's easy to just hear what someone is saying to you. It's more difficult to guide the conversation in a more positive direction.

It's easy to observe. It's more difficult to focus. And yet there is so much more reward [in focusing] than there is in just observing.
