What Is the Grid?
If you’ve been wondering what Abraham means by doing “grid work,” you’re not alone.
This guest post comes from GVU faculty member Gregory Gibbs, who shares thoughts on what the grid is and how to use it to your manifesting success:
Lately, Abraham has been suggesting we work with emotional grids as a means to manifest our desires. They believe it’s easier for people to understand and apply, more so than some of their previous processes.
Yet, in its simplicity, some of us are scratching our heads wondering what the heck is this grid?! Do we write it out? What does it look like? How does it work?
We sometimes complicate things, especially those who have habits of working hard! But here’s my simple take on Abraham’s grid:
It’s one of the simplest means of creating vibrational focus. Firstly, to feel good or better in any given moment on any topic, and secondly, to increase focus on what is wanted: feelings and manifestations without getting hung up on how it’s going to manifest and what it’s going to look like.
What is a Grid?
A grid is simply a point of attraction, a point of vibration signaling to Universe. Thinking of it as a grid is an easy way to create stronger focus and better manage your vibrational point of attraction.
There are many ways you can use the grid to get creative with your manifesting. I recommend something that really lights you up, but not so complicated that you lose sight of what a grid’s purpose is: Vibrational focus.
In working with the grid, it helps to visualize something grid-like – perhaps a wire frame, a building structure, or even a skeleton. Something where you create the foundation for your desired manifestation to grow from.
Think sci-fi and animation movies where characters, objects, landscapes, etc., start as wire frame ideas, and then are filled in with textures, colors, shading, lighting, etc. to bring them to life.
Or how about a supporting structure for houses, buildings, cars, boats, etc.?
For quantum physics freaks and geeks, you could think of a grid as your own area in the quantum or unified field.
You could go 3D and think of empty Rubik’s cube or even a transmission tower. (Thank you Jacqui and Nicole for those ideas!)
A grid might even be a space in your brain, heart, or body.
You can draw or write something out on paper to get you started, but I think it’s easiest to create a grid in your mind. Be playful and fun and don’t make it a big deal. Keep it simple at the beginning, as it’s only a focus point.
Seeding the Grid
Emotions are the seeds for your grid. Find an emotion or two that represent how you will feel when a manifestation unfolds. Abraham has been telling us this for years, and it’s that simple.
We simply reach for and maintain the feelings of how we think we will feel when the manifestation comes. When we consistently feel the emotions first, then the manifestation must come. It is Law. (I love that, It is Law – you can’t get this wrong!)
Feeding the Grid
Feelings are the fuel of your grid. You can imagine that your grid lights up a bit or pulses a little with the energy of the emotions that you want to start feeling. Allow the emotions to just float out onto your grid.
You can then start amping up your grid by feeling the emotion any number of ways.
Whatever grid you are creating, if you can easily feel an emotion from another source, do that. For example, if thinking of your lover puts you in state of joy, use him or her. If thinking of your pet puts in you in state of bliss, use that. The feeling is the most important thing, not so much where it comes from. If you can feel an emotion from the get-go, that also works!
Fill in your grid with some recent examples of manifestations to milk the feelings to bring you more of the same. I love this example from Jeannette: she specifically seeded her “helpful people grid” with recent examples of experiencing delightful, helpful, customer service folks.
As you feel an emotion, stay with it for a bit. (17-68 seconds would be great!) Imagine that the more you are feeling the emotion authentically, the more that your grid begins to light up, vibrate, pulse, and broadcast your signal. As you feed the grid with your feelings, the more strength the signal has, the more you empower Universal attraction.
Filling in the Grid
This is the easiest part. Universe does ALL of this through manifestation. How fabulously wonderful is that? The first manifestations are likely emotional ones, where you’ll notice it’s easier to feel better. Then you’ll get new ideas, insights or inspirations, or you might come across useful information.
In general, your entire vibration will be at a higher level, sending a more aligned signal to Universe. You are becoming a more powerful vibrational match to many things that are in your vortex – you are becoming a cooperative component!
Why The Grid Is So Powerful
By feeling the emotions, all else drops away and in that powerful moment, you send a very strong signal to Universe to bring more feelings and more things. Your now is where your power is.
By focusing on feeling the emotions, you get out of worrying about or trying to figure out the how’s, who’s, and when’s.
By focusing on feeling the emotions, you are less likely to entertain limiting beliefs and more likely to suspend the need to believe that the manifestation is possible for you.
You can be as general as you like and stay there. If getting specific lights you up, go for that. If it feels awkward or forced or that you are pushing to feel specific, cut yourself some slack and stay general.
The construct of the grid is a great manifesting tool and I think is the easiest process Abraham has offered thus far. What I have presented here is my interpretation with some insight and experience from others. I invite you to share your thoughts below, have fun playing with the grid, and keep it simple.
