Your Vibrational Instructions
I laughed while listening to a recent workshop CD when Abraham says Esther begged her not to tell the bus story, which Abe says of course means they have to. (Gotta love Abe and the law of attraction!)
What I especially appreciated, though, was Esther’s insistence to Abe that she’d cleaned up her vibration on the bus repair people.
And YET, here she is, despite having done the vibrational work, having exactly the same unhappy experience at the repair shop.
As the story continues, Abraham brings Esther to the realization that she wasn’t vibrating what she THOUGHT she was vibrating.
Whereas Esther (at first) said she was excited to drop off the bus and expected things to go smoothly, when pressed by Abe she realizes she HOPED things would go better than before. She hadn’t really gotten to the core of the vibe that was driving her negative experience at the bus repair place.
Which is easy to do, isn’t it?
I hear it from my clients all the time: “I’m really expecting this date will go well.” or “I see my boss giving me the credit (and the raise) I deserve.”
As our conversation progresses I hear things like, “I mean, I didn’t want a repeat experience like LAST week’s date!” or “I KNEW he was going to have another lame excuse for not coming up with the money.”
The contrary vibrational instruction isn’t always that obvious, but that’s what makes it even more worthwhile to check in on the instructions we’re sending Universe.
Because when I say “gorgeous body, perfect health” and yet think things like “big hips, sore throat” … what do I expect Universe to do with that?
If we want to see more progress, we’ve got to be more consistent in sending our aligned vibrational instructions.
Which just means becoming more aware, getting more honest with ourselves, and learning to drop our addiction to past experiences and current realities. (Unless of course those past experiences and current realities are what we want more of.)
So Esther’s bus repair story has me curious … what are the vibrational instructions you’re sending?
I realize my instructions might sometimes seem a little bi-polar. When I’m specifically and consciously talking to Universe, they get pretty good directions from me. But when I think I’m talking to myself or the walls or the tv, … well, things can get a little spotty. Like …
- “Could we have one day without cat throwup?” Which Universe hears as “more feline vomit for Jeannette!”
- Or “You better not space that call in two hours” which Universe hears as “she’s spacing the call in two hours!”
- And of course “I hope last year’s shorts still fit” is just asking for trouble.
How about you? Do you see a hodgepodge of material you’re offering vibrationally? Or is it lined up pretty consistently?
What’s your first thought of the day? That’s a vibrational instruction.
What do you think about while eating breakfast? There’s another instruction.
How about when you answer the phone? Park the car? Shop for groceries? All are instructions that the Universe hears and responds to.
I’d love to hear from you, as usual! And thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts, since we all learn and grow from the exploration.
