Abe's Blahg Bashing
Okay, after listening to Abraham make fun of blogs (August 2008 workshop in Los Angeles), of course I couldn’t help but blog about it!
(Good thing I’ve learned not to care so much what others think, or it might have hurt my feelings!)
The message was included in one of Abe’s rants about not letting reality be as important as we think it is. Or as Abe sometimes calls it: getting over “what is-itis.”
Abe implied our blogs (or blaaaahh-gs, to be exact) are just recaps of the very reality we don’t want – which by writing endlessly about, we reinforce.
That was actually a nice plug for the power of pray rain journaling (using the power of the written word to create your preferred reality). And it also inspired an idea for a “fantasy blog” where we write about life like we want it, rather than how it is. That’d be cool, huh?
At any rate, you Abe fans already know their point is that since we get what we’re focused on, by paying attention to “what is” (whether by writing, talking, or thinking about it), we can only create more of the same.
The challenge for most of us is that reality seems so .. well, REAL. Ignoring it is easier said than done.
But Abe reminds us that there are plenty of things that are “real” we can sink our teeth into that make us feel fabulous. (And how we feel is what matters most, after all.)
Their suggestion is to at least direct our attention to those fabulous-feeling realities if we’re going to ridiculously insist on paying attention to what’s “real.” But Abe also informs us there’s another reality many don’t see. That’s our “vibrational reality”: the things we create through experiencing what we don’t want (i.e. “contrast”).
Every time we experience something we don’t want, we immediately and automatically create the opposite of it. That creation exists in our “vibrational escrow” or “vortex.” That’s where all our financial abundance and perfect health and gorgeous bodies and true loves and brilliant successes hang out – till we line up with them.
Abe says just because you can’t “see” it yet doesn’t mean it isn’t “real.” It is. It’s real and it’s coming. That’s inevitable. And if we don’t get to enjoy it before we check out, no worries because someone else will (or maybe even we will on our next go-round.)
The important thing to know is that we can let ourselves in on that vibrational party now by feeling good. By getting happy.
And if we have to run away from home to get happy, or go to the beach every day to feel good, or whatever it takes to feel better, that’s what we must do in order to get in on the goods! (Seriously, that’s what Abe said.)
Pretty simple message, huh?
Yeah, I know.
We’ve got LOTS of excuses about why it’s not that easy! But that’s all they are – excuses. Habits. Reasons that don’t serve us.
What if we raised the standards on how we felt, and no longer tolerated anything that took a vibrational toll on us?
Oh my. Talk about upsetting the apple cart, huh?! (I’m liking the sounds of this!)
But the truth is I don’t think reality is as hard to enjoy as we sometimes think. Maybe that’s easy for me to say where I stand now. However, having changed many circumstances and people in my life just to find that the same challenges awaited on the other side – I’ve come to believe that feeling good and being happy is possible no matter what the situation.
At any rate, I’m glad this blog doesn’t keep us stuck in “reality,” but rather inspires us to step outside our old creations and live into our current dreams and desires. All of which happens as YOU bring this forum to life by creating thoughtful conversations and sharing important suggestions and helpful resources on the topic of deliberate creation with the law of attraction.
Thank you for being part of this leading edge community, and here’s to a blog that supports our highest growth and sweet success and biggest dreams come true!
