Name 10 Good Things

Abraham shared a game-changing practice Esther uses when she’s knee-deep in contrast …

She names ten good things about the situation.

That’s it.

Just a quick mental tally of ten ways this isn’t so bad.

Ten signs things are working out. Ten things to celebrate about it.

That’s all it takes to get the vibe back on good track.

You might be able to do it on the spot. (Kudos if you can!)

Or it might be best engaged when you’re not in the red hot heat of the moment.

Practice it for yourself and you’ll see what a vibe-shifter it is.

I did it for a couple contrasty things recently …

When one of my beloved computers decided to take an extended break:

  • A chance to re-think how much time I spend on the computer.
  • A reminder of how much I appreciate this particular business asset.
  • An opportunity to re-evaluate my work schedule.
  • A potential excuse to play with newer technology.
  • I can still access what I need; nothing’s lost.
  • Maybe she’s setting a good example about taking a break.
  • Perhaps a new tax write-off is in the works. Gotta love deductible expenses!
  • The cats appreciate the freed up lap space.
  • From what others tell me, she’s had a good long life in computer years.
  • I learned just how tough a computer can be.

Just making the list takes the sting out of something that could have been really bothersome otherwise. It helps me suspend negative judgment on what’s happened and we all know that makes me a better match to something good happening next!

By the time I got to #10, I was already feeling lighter.

I had another chance to practice it when the neighborhood cat (who I call mine, but obviously isn’t) didn’t come “home” for a week:

  • This is good practice to release attachment.
  • And a good chance to trust all is well even when I can’t see it with my own eyes.
  • More lap time and love for the other felines. (They don’t miss him.)
  • Maybe he’s found a place he likes better.
  • Maybe he has a girlfriend! (He’s neutered, but still!)
  • It’s good weather to be out.
  • I can still love him even if he’s not “here.”
  • This neighborhood is filled with cat-friendly people.
  • He’s microchipped to me.
  • He’s done this before, and always comes back.

(And sure enough, he returned again.)

Can you feel how this exercise trains you to see what’s going right?

Since we get whatever we look for, that’s a powerful perspective to habituate ourselves to.

We don’t do it necessarily to change what’s manifested, but just as a helpful vibration management technique. So we don’t get caught up in contrast and thus attract more crappy stuff.

It keeps us flowing a more positive point of attraction, even when we’re not loving what is.

Give it a try next time you’re fretting about something that doesn’t feel fabulous.

The more you practice it, the better you get at it and the easier it is for Universe to reveal something good next. 🙂

    And what about doing the same about GOOD situations?!

  • Deirdre says:

    Oh my gosh! That actually worked like a charm! 😀 I feel so much better about my summer jib now! Thank you because I was really disgruntled today!

  • Mindy J says:

    I like it!! Going to implement this!!

  • Omigosh, this was so helpful. Thank you!

  • Elle says:

    Splendid! I was just thinking last night that all the pain and torture I put myself through in the past was self-induced. I put my poor self through hell. There was nothing wrong with any of it. Thus, I can assume that there is nothing wrong with the now either and I should just chill. Everything is going as it should. The Univere always re-calibrates.

    Sounds like a good practice Jeannette!
    I have a question: is it necessary to focus on your desire all the time with laser like focus for it to manifest? I’m specifically asking in regards to a career/passion manifestation. The idea of focusing on it all my waking hours feels forced…but isn’t this what all successful people do? If you’re passionate don’t you only focus on one thing exclusively?
    And, can we manifest two or more desires at once, or by focusing on several desires is our focus diffused? I’ve heard that it doesn’t matter what you focus on as long as you feel good. But I’m doubting this idea and thinking that specific focus is necessary.

      Hi anonymous!
      You will receive many good answers here, but I would like to add my 2 cents from experience. If the focus feels forced, then ease up on things. Loosen the choker, so to speak. you want to be more in flow than anything else. The best things that would describe this, for me, is being in love with life itself. This is what Abe call being in the vortex, but teachers have their own terminology for it. If you feel you are not getting anywhere, by all means drop it altogether and do something else. I have done this many times and the former thing manifested later. Like trying to get back with an ex, for example. I would try, then saw nothing was happening, so I stopped completely and after some time, he’d return. This is just an example from the off top of my head. Even if you drop it, the Universe never forgets so do not be surprised if years later (in human time) it manifests! The Universe really has “no time”, per se.
      As for your second question, we can definitely manifest more than one thing at once. You just need to ease up on stuff and not stamp your feet and ask where the heck is it, or why is in not happening? At least I do that. Been there, done that. When I relaxed, stopped comparing myself to others, accepted where I am and said all is well, then I’d get back into flow again.
      I hope this helped, but even if it did not, this is a great review for me with great reminders, so helping someone is really self-help!

    I can think of a few things I can do this on right now! Thank you for the reminder ????

  • Marquina says:

    Hmm. Looks like trying to add an emoji leaves question marks instead. That’s pretty funny!

  • Marquina says:

    Thanks for giving us another way to look at tough or undesirable situations! Listing what’s good helps us take a look at the entire “forest”, which is so beautiful, even when a couple of “trees” are not so good. And it’s only a couple of trees. ????

  • Dana says:

    Perfect timing, as usual. I laughed out loud when you proposed the “lost” cat may have found a new boyfriend!!! That one just cracked me up! Any excuse to laugh is always appreciated. ????
