February 2008

    I have worked extensively with the teachings of Eckhart Tolle over the last few years, and they were extremely helpful. He helped me to understand for the first time that there was a part of me that was separated from the True me, and that this “ego” did not want to be noticed. By entering stillness, I could calm down the incessant chatter in my head, and find the quiet of the True me, or Source.
    I am grateful for these teachings for they spurred me on to keep searching for….. my truth, my happiness, even to asking the question: “If EVERYBODY dies, and EVERYBODY who has ever lived has died, how come we do not know with certainty what happens??? And how come I have so many strong emotions that keep popping up?? And what about the never ending stream of negative thoughts? ” As much as Tolle’s writings had helped me, I still had unanswered questions.
    Now I know that my extreme desire brought me to the teachings of Abraham, and have answered my questions……. I now know that I am Source Energy, that part of me is still located in the non-physical, part of me here in this time-space reality, and that my emotions are not to be feared, but to be acknowledged – that they tell me at any given time whether I am allowing the Stream of Life to flow through me, or whether I am resisting. And that my life is mine to create and enjoy!!
    I am happy the Tolle and Oprah are starting their online class for hundreds of thousands of people. It is an important beginning and I am grateful for his writings and teachings. And I am grateful for the teachings of Abraham that have helped me to understand the reason we are here, and to understand that there is only life, and then more life, and that this life here on Earth is one that we were SO excited about returning to, and that when we allow the Stream of Life to flow through us……now that is living!

    Enlightenment means literally aligning to the Energy of my Source. And genius is only about focusing. Law of Attraction takes care of everything else.

    Physical humans often want to make enlightenment about finding some process and moving through the process that has been pre-described. But true enlightenment is moving to the rhythm of the internal inspiration that is coming in response to the individual desire.

    Enlightenment is about allowing my connection to the Source that is me for the fulfillment of the things that I have individually defined here in my time/space reality. That’s as good as it gets! — Abraham

I found this little book in my library the other day- I was appreciating how amazing our cells are, noticing how they are always feeling the contrast as we do, and that, given our allowing, working to regain equilibrium. Our being in alignment- looking for better feeling thoughts- allows our bodies to do their work. My work over the years with hundreds of birthing women confirms what Ian Watson says below. My own journey to wellness confirms these thoughts. May they comfort you as well….

    When we do something fully, one hundred percent, it is finished. A fruit that is fully ripened falls to the ground by itself.

    The best midwife does nothing but catch the baby when the mother’s body is ready to release it.

    The best homeopath does nothing but create the space within which a person remembers how to heal himself.

    Ultimately, there is no such thing as cure. There is simply a self- healing process that has completed itself.- From   “The Tao of Homeopathy” by Ian Watson

Your work is to go forth into this physical environment looking for things that are a vibrational match to joy, connecting to Source Energy, and then following with the inspired action.- Abraham

    Two years ago, I started walking every day on the nearby trails. Last March a gym opened near where I live, and I signed up as walking in the rain and snow in the winter is not much fun. As time went on, I started running and walking on the treadmill, and how amazing running is….even for a minute it was like being a child again.
    And yesterday, as signs of spring are appearing everywhere, I found myself walking on the trail in the forest nearby, and then running…and I ran and ran for almost half an hour. And the joy that I felt, the thrill of running again, brought up childhood memories of being free, so free…..

It is not your action that matters;
It is your vibration.
It is not your action that makes you fat (or wealthy or healthy );
It is your vibration.
It is not what you are doing that makes the difference;
It is how your are feeling about about what you are doing- Abraham

Finding thoughts that make you feel better will raise your vibration. Listening to music that makes you feel better will raise your vibration. Walking in nature, spending time with those you love will raise your vibration.

Raising your vibration means feeling relief from wherever you are right now- so if right now, you are feeling frustrated, then finding a thought that moves you up to, say,…. hopefulness, will bring you relief.

Abraham teaches us that the most important feeling in the world for each and every one of us is……RELIEF!

If I am feeling anger towards my husband about something he has done or said to me, then I need to think a thought that will bring me up to the feeling of perhaps…..disappointment- ” I am so disappointed that he did such and such again. I really thought things were getting better.” Going to love would be way too big a jump at that point. But disappointment or even frustration is a better feeling than anger. And I would have raised my vibration in the meantime, and start to feel better.

I could even start to think thoughts such as “Well, he is trying hard to understand these Abraham teachings. I am hopeful that in time he too will be happier and healthier.” This would then move my vibration up to the feeling level of hopefulness, which is way better feeling than the previous anger. And when I truly vibrate with the feelings of love and appreciation my thoughts about my husband are “Isn’t he an amazing person? I so much appreciate and love him and I am so fortunate to have him in my life!!!”

Now, here is an important distinction: Feelings are NOT-” I feel that if he changed I would be happier” or “I feel that he treated me badly. ” Those are thoughts disguised as feelings. Feelings are “I am worried about the future” or” I am jealous of her success” or ” I am angry at him for not calling me when he said he would”. For the complete scale of 22 possible emotions go to my post called Law of Attraction Part Three- Your Emotions. Are you beginning to understand this process?

Every moment of every day, we have an internal guidance system, our emotions, that can assist us to see where we are vibrationally speaking. And the closer we can spend the day feeling joy and appreciation, the more we are then truly connected to Source, and peace and wellbeing will permeate our beings, and we will experience the world through eyes of love

    I can look back now at conflicts or difficult events that have happened in my life with a new perspective. Those events have greatly contributed to making me the person I am today. Those great contrasts caused me to send out “rockets of desire” as Abraham calls them- as I clearly saw what I did not want, I began to formulate in my mind what I DID want.

    For example, I studied many years ago to become a Registered Nurse. I loved being in the hospital and learning about the human body and helping those who were suffering. But what I really loved most was being where the babies were being born; however, when I witnessed my first few deliveries, I was appalled! What a terrible way to give birth and for the infants to come into the world- what a sterile, cold, and noisy place the “delivery rooms” were- I am talking about the early 1970’s in North America.

    Five years later I had my first child in that environment as there were almost no other options available. Even though I brought my quilt and pillows from home to cozy things up a bit, it was still an “operating room” mentality, and with nurses and doctors I barely knew. Our health care system had outlawed midwives, and had successfully “medicalized” childbirth

    So I experienced the contrast now first hand. I ended up feeling very, very unhappy about the birth experience (not about my lovely firstborn!), and I must have put out quite the rockets of desire!!

    For within the year, I was invited to teach childbirth classes. And within the next 6 months, I was invited to join a fledgling group of parents who wanted to see midwives be allowed to assist birthing families. And within 4 years, I found myself apprenticing with an amazing “underground ” midwife, and for 5 years I studied and learned myself how to be a midwife. And within 9 more years, I was able to be part of, and witness, the legalization of midwives and see them be completely integrated into our health care system.

    Now along the way, I had joy and grief: one of my clients lost her baby during the labour- out of that very difficult experience for us all, came HUGE desires to really see midwives legally practicing. So added to my desire came the desire of these amazing parents who saw the “cracks” in the system we had.

    As a result of many people-midwives, parents, doctors- women can now have their babies at home or in a hospital with experienced midwives. Those babies are now arriving into loving hands, into a cozy environment, and my desires have now been manifested. I no longer have the privilege of attending births, but I eagerly anticipate my first- born daughter (or it may be her younger sister first!) having my first grandchild…….

    Good morning!

    I have been picking up more magazines for my and my husband’s Creation Boxes. He has decided that he wants to re-do our 15 year old kitchen! He loves to cook and this process has inspired him to dream about what he wants in this new kitchen.

    I, on the other hand, keep cutting out pictures of diamond jewelery! I have never before been so interested in diamonds…..but those are the pictures that keep making feel happy, and I even went into a jewelery store the other day to look around.

    And so I have this picture in my mind of my sitting on a lovely new stool in our new kitchen wearing my diamonds and sipping my wine, watching my husband cooking on his new stove top with his new cookware! How good is that!??

    Many say, “When the condition changes, I’ll feel better. When I have more money or move into a better house, or a better mate, then I’ll feel better.” We do not disagree that it does feel better to observe something that is pleasing than something that is not, but that is going about it in a very backwards way.

    Deliberate Creation is not about the condition changing and then your finding a better feeling in response to the changed condition. Deliberate Creation is about choosing a thought that feels good when you choose it, which then causes the condition to change.

    For example, unconditional love is really about wanting so much to remain in connection with your Source of love that you deliberately choose thoughts that allow your connection, no matter what manifestations may be happening nearby. And when you are able to control your point of attraction by deliberately choosing better-feeling thoughts, the conditions that surround you have to change.
    The Law of Attraction says that they must- Abraham

Thirsting for God

Expanses divine my soul craves.
Confine me not in cages,
Or substance or of spirit.
I am love-sick —
I thirst, I thirst for God,
as a deer for water brooks.
Alas, who can describe my pain,
Who will be a violin to express the songs of my grief,
I am bound to the world,

All creatures, all people are my friends,
Many parts of my soul
Are intertwined with them,
But how can I share with them my Light?

    Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook was a mystic and a philosopher born in the middle of the 19th century. Raised in Latvia, he served as the chief rabbi of Jaffa, Palestine until his election to the chief rabbinate of Jerusalem where he served the entire Jewish community of Palestine until his death in 1935. But his true passion was as a poet and writer of volumes- he saw ” the whole universe stirred by the pulsating energies emanating from the divine source of existence.”

    His most popular book is called ” The Lights of Penitence”. Penitence, an archaic word, is used in this context as remembering who we truly are: divinely connected at all times to Source/God.

    This form of penitence dawns on a person through the grace of some inner spiritual force, whose traces point to the depth of the mysterious.

    Day by day, inspired by this higher level of general penitence, his feeling becomes more firm, clearer more illumined by reason…..His manner becomes increasingly brightened, his anger recedes, a kindly light shines on him, he is filled with vigor, his eyes sparkle with a holy fire, his heart is bathed in rivers of delight and holiness and purity hover over him.
