Call to Vibrational Action

I just opened an email from someone who I and many others consider to be a spiritual leader in our community
Her energy work with clients across the globe helps them elevate consciousness, become more aware of energy, and surpass physical and emotional limitations. 
(She changed my life!)
But this email was a shocker. 
I would paste it here, but can’t bring myself to. 
Let me summarize briefly instead. 
It was a forwarded call to action to “flood” Obama’s email (they don’t even the respect to say President Obama) with instructions to veto the bill the Senate just passed (assuming it gets through the House) to ensure illegal aliens don’t get access to social security benefits
I was speechless. 
For a minute. 
And then recovered access to all sorts of my favorite sailor words.
So I’ve taken a deep breath.  And rather than just let this go and forget about it (this isn’t the first note she’s sent like this), there are a few things I want to say.  To remind all of us of, myself included, of the truth.
We know better than this!
First of all, even if you really believe in limitation of resources, even if you really believe the government is in charge of those resources, and even if you really believe there are some people who don’t deserve certain resources, the last thing that’s going to work for you is to push against it.
If you really think we’re not all one, and that how we treat another is not what we’re calling forth upon ourselves, and you really think you need to command the government into protecting your vested interests – this isn’t how you successfully create change.
How you go about it is like this:
Well, wait a minute.  I’m not finding super helpful instruction to someone who buys into – what I consider – false premises.
Because the fact is:

  • we are all connected;
  • what we wish upon another is what we call forth upon ourselves;
  • there are no limitations unless we create them by believing in them; and
  • the best way to get what we want is to focus on that positive end result rather than fight its opposite.

And guys, it’s up to us to practice this. 
We know how things work.
We are the leaders.
This fearful scarcity crap thinking is so outdated, it just won’t fly any more.  We know too much!
We are in a prime position to be more aware and diligent about what we are creating vibrationally.
Believe in your abundance, know that no one can prevent you from it (but yourself, and even then only temporarily), and that we can all have what we want – our happy endings fit together perfectly.
This is a clarion call to everyone out there who understands that at the foundation of our world is the law of attraction.  If we don’t change old habits, who will?
Okay, our kids will. 
But let’s not wait!  Let’s show them the way.  Let’s set the example for powerful living! 
We know too much to do it otherwise.
And I’ll start …

  • by finding peace with those who do it different;
  • by embracing my brothers and sisters who believe other than I do;
  • by sending love to those who are discretionary about theirs;
  • by remembering that we’re all deliciously human, even the ones on pedestals;
  • by embracing the contrast and knowing it’s just taking us to even better places.

Now that feels better.  🙂

    I like the Abraham quote that Stephen posted so much, that I’m making a desktop wallpaper for myself out of it so I see it every day! 🙂

  • Jackie Gaston says:

    I try to concentrate on things that will help people prosper where they are rather than think of people as illegal. There are micro finance organizations such as Kiva ( that help people with business loans and other organizations such as Dream Change and Heifer International that support people in so called underdeveloped countries in other ways. Supporting these kinds of endeavors makes me feel much better than calling people illegal.

    BRAVO!! I couldn’t agree more and will be forwarding the verbiage in THIS blog post to anyone who has sent me (or sends me in the future) this exact or a similar (unfathomable and truly saddening) e-mail. Thank you for saying everything you say so wonderfully well. It often makes my life easier.

  • sara says:

    Ha! Just when I was starting to feel like I was the only one who felt like that – here’s a wonderful reminder that as always, we are never alone. AND – as I haven’t been on in awhile, its also a great reminder that actions are as important as thoughts…for taking the action to stop by has delivered a wonderful gift of nourishment to my soul.
    Thanks Jeannette!

  • Wendy says:

    Byron Katie said that defense is the first act of war.
    Katie explains that to the extent that any of us believe our thoughts, we suffer accordingly. When we learn to question our thoughts, we experience immediate release and freedom.
    No one can ever upset us (we only upset ourselves by the thoughts we choose to think)
    Thanks for all you do Jeannette, I for one enjoy all your posts and blogs and thoughts!

  • Nick Breen says:

    People need to just sit back relax and focus on creating their own futures and stop blaming outside circumstances for what is going on in their lives.
    I think as a society we are awakening to this but it will be probably 10-15 more years if not 100 years (if we make it that long) before everyone realizes this and practices it.
    The internet will be a major tool in making this happen,.

  • gemstone says:

    This may be my favorite post of yours (and that’s saying something). It hits so close to home for me because my parents are on the other side of the political divide from me, and the one thing I’ve had to learn is to let go, and let them live their lives as they see fit, not as I want them too. I now see their intense fear over the changes in our world as just that– fear, and so I’ve become more compassionate towards them as a result. It’s still a struggle when I see the shenanigans going on in Washington, or through the news, but it’s also a fantastic learning opportunity.
    Over the past few years, I’ve moved from frustration and resistance to a place of hope and engagement, and it’s made *all* the difference in my life. Through your inspiring posts (plus all the fabulous people you draw to this blog every week), I’ve learned that when I push back with might (because I had to be right), I hurt no one but myself.
    By focusing on what Kim mentions– the paradigm shifting– I feel more freedom and havingness than ever before. I know so much will be changing in the world (possibly in the order of the 1960s), and I’m actually looking forward to the immense possibilities surrounding us.
    Thank you again for bringing this to the forefront.

  • Stephen says:

    Choose what feels good to you and leave everybody else to choose what they want. Don’t spend any time saying, “They should choose differently and they’d feel better.” Instead say, “They’re choosing whatever they’re choosing; I’m choosing what I’m choosing, and I’m feeling good while I’m choosing it.” And let that be the end of it. Be certain that you are connected to your Source Energy, and let everybody else figure it out for themselves. Some of them will adore you, some of them will hate you — and none of it has anything to do with you.

  • Jeannette says:

    Thank you, Barb! For reading and for popping in to share the love.
    And Kim – I love that: “the paradigm is shifting”!
    WOO HOO!!

  • Kim Falconer says:

    Jeannette, I feel so uplifted by this post and everyone’s comments. The paradigm is shifting! I know it is, because of your words.

  • Barb says:

    This is why I love you. 😀

  • Iyabo Asani says:

    Interestingly enough, this was the ABEQUOTE I got today from the Abraham Hicks yahoo group!
    “A battle against anything is a battle against YOU.”
    ~San Rafael, CA, 08.02.09

  • Jeannette says:

    You’re bringing all the good stuff to this post, Iyabo!! lol
    Thanks for sharing that Abe quote – it’s perfect timing for this post!!

  • Jeannette says:

    Thanks for the support, Berta! It’s good to know I’m not the only one seeing things this way.
    We’ve got good company!! 🙂

  • Berta Bauer, Lighthouse Coaching and Retreats says:

    Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!
    Indeed, we are all one and pushing against any one of us is pushing against ourselves.
    Thank you for the courage to make this a blog post.

  • Jeannette says:

    Nicole, I think you’re asking the million dollar question.
    As someone who was very active in animal rights work before running across law of attraction material (and then understanding that what we resist persists), I’ve asked myself the same thing more than once.
    The group sounds like they’re already on the right track with a name like “Relay for Life.” The focus is in a more empowering place than if it were “Fight Against Cancer,” know what I mean?
    But even when everyone else is doing their “anti” thing, I think it’s still possible for us to bring a “pro” attitude.
    This probably isn’t the best example, but at the dog park the other day a local rescue group was collecting signatures for something. I don’t know what for, because I just signed it without reading. lol
    All I knew is that I wanted them to know I support the end result they’re working toward: a good world for our animals to live in. And I didn’t need to engage any potential “resistance” that might have been evident in whatever I signed.
    I’m still laughing that I did that.
    There’s likely a better what than that – and it might make a great blog post of its own to explore further!

  • Nicole says:

    This post brought up a good question for me. If we truly value and believe in a ’cause,’ how do we act as if it’s already been taken care of without seeming insensitive?
    A friend of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time, my aunt was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and a lifelong friend’s father was diagnosed with cancer for the second time. A few months ago, I joined a Relay for Life team at work to support our friend. But I’m on the fence about it – I want to support people who are dealing with cancer, but yet I want to ignore the resistance to dealing with cancer.
    How can we be supportive but at the same time do not ‘beat the drum’ against cancer, any other diseases or causes?

  • Jeannette says:

    Nice quote! Thanks for sharing it with us, Vanessa.
    I may be due for a re-read of Wally’s material myself.

  • Vanessa Vinos says:

    Hi Jeanette (from across the pond in Spain!)
    It’s really funny because only yesterday I was re-reading (for the umpteenth time!) Wally Wattles’ ‘The Science of Getting Rich’. I happened to read, “Do not rage against politicians, if it were not politicians we should fall into anarchy, and your opportunity would be greatly lessened”.
    How appropriate is that?
    It sounds that perhaps your friend needs to go back to basics.

  • Janette says:

    Ooh, Iyabo – that’s something I’ve been thinking about too! I think it’s like the emotional scale for individuals.
    As individuals if we are experiencing despair, we may have to move through anger (what a relief!) before we can get to hope and joy.
    Perhaps the political equivalent is when a people who are experiencing complete powerlessness must go through political resistance before they can move through to acceptance and making peace with what is?
    You’ve given me the key to making peace with the concept of political resistance, when it plays its part in that progress of a people from powerlessness (slavery comes to mind) to genuine participation.
    Perhaps when we see people acting out of political fear in the way Jeannette talks about, it’s just the same as being stuck in anger or fear.
    And that makes it much easier for me to feel nothing but compassion for them. Thanks Iyabo!

  • Jeannette says:

    Oh! We were thinking similar things, Janette, you just said it way better than I did. lol
    Thanks for this response – it’s very helpful!

  • Jeannette says:

    That’s interesting, Iyabo: “new African American museum flagship exhibit is ‘Let Your Motto Be Resistance!'”
    Maybe it’s possible for resistance to be an empowering vibe? lol I don’t know!
    As I think about it, that must be the case, right? Like on the vibrational scale, how anger and revenge can be better vibes than depression and grief, etc.?
    Interesting thought about resistance …

  • Iyabo Asani says:

    Such a good point Jeanette! This type of thing is one of the things that kicks me right out of the vortex. I get upset when we do not treat humans like humans and I literally have to start speaking out loud about allowing others to have their own truth.
    Your example is so enlightening and that is the way to do it.
    On a slightly different note, I slapped my head today when I saw that Smithsonian has a new African American museum and their flagship exhibit is “Let Your Motto Be Resistance!” Yeeeeesh!

  • linda c. thomas says:

    Dear Jeannette,
    What you did my dear is called walking your talk.
    I am grateful for your presence on the web.
    You go girl!

  • Thank you, Linda! I liked your “no one is at fault” line on your race vibes post.
    Sounds like you’re walking the talk, too.

  • Janette says:

    Bless you, bless you, bless you Jeannette for this post.
    I admit to having a sailor word moment at the thought there are people even remotely connected to my tribe who can still engage in actively spreading fear and disconnection.
    But, as usual, your grace and compassion lifted me higher than I had thought to go; up to a place where I could let that go. Your capacity to recognise and release resistance is powerful, and your energy is transcendent, my friend. The world is a much better place for having you in it.
    And so I pour torrents of blessings on your head for such a brilliant start to my day. Thank you.

  • I’m feelin’ the love, Janette!! Thanks for bringing it in abundance to this post.
    Your presence is always a pleasure. 🙂

  • Yes, Nicole, I’ve wondered that, too. Are we really paying attention or just doing what might be old habit?
    We’ve got to be aware of what we’re perpetuating, and I realize that with this post, which kind of feels like a little “rant,” I should follow my own advice.
    I appreciate your reminder to enjoy the contrast. Well said!
    Thanks for joining the discussion, my friend.

  • Ande says:

    Four hundred years old–I LOVE it! I’ll tell my husband. He’s an old soul with young memories. 🙂 Maybe once I tell him, he’ll stop teasing me about being his older woman (just turned 50–4 months ahead of him, and he’s milking that four months for all it’s worth). 🙂 But age, like everything else, isn’t a truth–it’s just a vibration, and we can choose the way we want to vibrate.

  • Nicole says:

    It surprises me too when someone I love and respect forwards me a ridiculous email and I always wonder if they really feel that way, or are they passively forwarding out of fear?
    A friend of mine was going on and on about the government, and how events in modern times mimic Nazi Germany, and how the New World Order is taking over, yada yada yada. I find it humorous because we all truly live in our own worlds and create what we want to see. I choose peace and abundance. The other horror stories people dwell on are their own choice, but thankfully I have my own.
    I am grateful for the people on this blog, and throughout the Internet, who are aligned with positive energy and good thoughts. The contrast is interesting though…without that email being sent to Jeanette, this awesome post wouldn’t exist!

  • I couldn’t agree more, Michaela, that it’s fear-based thinking. And I’m liking your question: “How can we create/manifest something that is for the benefit of *all* concerned?”
    Having an intention for that outcome is a fabulous start, and would be well-served by giving up thinking that it isn’t possible; that there are inevitable “winners” and “losers.”
    Indeed, not everyone sees things this way, but those of who DO … well, this is our time to walk the talk. 🙂
    Thanks for chiming in here, Michaela. Good to hear from you again!

  • Michaela says:

    Hi Jeannette! I wouldn’t at all agree with the call to action you’ve received in that e-mail you mentioned but I can somehow understand where it’s coming from – it’s probably the fear of becoming a victim of injustice, of having others taking away your “good”, of feeling powerless and helpless.
    I’m not from the US, so this particular case doesn’t concern me but we’re facing a situation in our neighborhood right now that is a little similar – what seems to be the advantage of some (a huge new playground) seems to take away from the “good” of others.
    I wonder: How can we create/manifest something that is for the benefit of *all* concerned? I like your suggestions that there are “no limitations” and we should rather focus on the “positive end result”. I might try it! 🙂

  • Jeannette says:

    Well said, Ande. (We choose our vibration.)
    Belated happy birthday to you!

  • Jeannette says:

    What a lovely and consistent reminder to live with, Ande! “Chill.”
    I was just wondering if I knew any four year olds who were good at not getting uptight about things, and then thought that your husband might be more like four HUNDRED years old, that’s ancient wisdom there.
    Thanks for reading and especially for writing, Ande.

  • Ande says:

    Bravo, Jeannette! As my husband says to anyone who gets worked up about what the government is or isn’t doing to the right or wrong (depending on who is complaining) people, “Chill. Why push against what the government is doing? Why not know that all is well, and we ALL have access to limitless abundance?” My husband had a head injury 4 years ago that wiped out 95 percent of his lifetime memories, including history, current events, politics, etc. My friends tease him and say he’s 4 years old (he’s almost 50). Well, his “4-year old” perspective is more right on than many so-called law of attraction teachers. And he (and I) agree with you wholeheartedly. We don’t get more for ourselves by begrudging what others receive.
