The achievement of anything that you desire must be considered success, whether it is a trophy or money or relationships, or things. But if you will let your standard of success be your achievement of joy—everything else will fall easily into place. For in the finding of joy, you are finding vibrational alignment with the resources of the Universe.- Abraham

It appears that the idea of a Magic Creation Box resonated with many of you ( including my husband who joined me in making one!). I think there is something about the word magic and creation linked together, for the idea of struggling less and enjoying life more is attractive to us all. I loved all your comments and especially loved Hanlie’s amazing oriental wooden box- it made me look at my box made from a running shoe box and laugh!!

So what do we “do” now? My pictures of furniture, cars, travel destinations, homes, jewelery, ocean vistas, friends sitting around drinking wine, luxury hotels etc. are safely ensconced in their shoe box with the words in magic marker “Whatever is contained in this box- IS!” written on top. Here is Abraham on what to do now:

If you have little or no resistance-in other words, if you have no doubt that you can achieve these things, the experience will feel invigorating to you. The more you clip, the better you will feel, and you will begin to see evidence of these things moving closer and closer into your experience. Doors will begin to open to make it possible for many of these things to easily come in right now.

We want you to feel the fun and joy of the process. Often, when you get something that you have been wanting, your feeling of elation is short-lived, but this game will give you the opportunity to savor the things that you desire longer. And then, the thrill of the manifestation, even though short, will be all the sweeter. (from “Ask and It Is Given”- by Esther and Jerry Hicks, The Teachings of Abraham).

The movie and subsequent book called “The Secret” are primarily based on the teachings of Abraham as spoken and written by Esther Hicks who for twenty years have been teaching about the Law of Attraction: “That which is like unto itself is drawn.” To the Hicks, and to the group of non-physical teachers who call themselves Abraham, I am eternally grateful.

Every thought vibrates, every thought radiates a signal, and every thought attracts a matching signal back. So, as your experience causes you to launch vibrational rockets of desires, you must then find ways of holding yourself consistently in vibrational harmony with those desires in order to receive their manifestation.

I will post more over the next while on HOW to hold yourself in “vibrational harmony” so all those wonderful things in your Magic Creation Box will come to you.

    I love magazines- just ask my husband! We get delicious travel magazines sent to us by our travel agent, and I enjoy looking at all the 5 star hotels and the cruises to exotic locations. Pictures of people’s homes that overlook tropical oceans send me into daydreams of living there. And so when I came upon this idea from the book “Ask and it is Given” , I knew I had found something that would be fun for me to do. And so I am sharing it with you…..

    To begin the Creation Box process, find a nice-looking box, one that is pleasing to you when you see it. On the lid, in a conspicuous place that you will easily notice, write the words: Whatever is contained in this box-IS!

    Next, gather magazines, catalogues and brochures, and leisurely look through them for whatever you would like to include in your experience. Then clip out pictures of anything that exemplifies any desires that you hold: pictures of furniture, clothing, landscaping, buildings, travel destinations, vehicles; images of physical characteristics; photos of people interacting with one another…if it feels appealing to you in any way, clip it and drop it into your Creation Box. And say as you drop it in, “Whatever is contained in this box-IS!”

    The more things you find for your box, the more the Universe will deliver to you other ideas that match them. And the more you ideas you drop into your box, the more your desire will be focused. And the more your desire is focused, the more alive you will feel- for this Energy flowing through you is what life is.

    If you are usually a good-feeling person who has not established strong habits of feeling unhappy about not having the things you have put in your box, you will experience the immediate positive result of feeling more focused and more excited by life, and the things you have put in your Creation Box will begin to manifest in your experience right away.

    I am going to make my Creation Box today, and start clipping out those pictures from my many, many magazines and catalogues. And I would love you to join me! Please let me know, and I will post more tomorrow as well on this process.

A large part of my life over the last ten years has been to regain my freedom from a body that was well…fat! I would look in a mirror and not recognize myself carrying almost 50 extra pounds. Two years ago, I decided it was time to loose the weight and get fit. I joined Weight Watchers Core plan, started walking and spent hours reading online the success stories. And I started reading motivational books.

The one that best describes what I found to be the key to my sucess, is “The Astonishing Power of  Emotions” The Teachings of Abraham by Esther and Jerry Hicks. I have been sucessful- lost the 50 pounds, exercise daily, and, at age 55, get told that I look like a teenager (and sometimes now I feel like one !) What follows is my personal understanding of these teachings. At first, this may seem somewhat hard to understand, but try to read it over and over, because you actually know all this- you have just forgotten….

You are focused here on planet Earth while a part of you is still focused in the non-physical- the place Abraham calls Pure Positive Energy.

As a result, you have two points of view: your physical viewpoint and your non-physical viewpoint. And there is nothing that will ever be more important for either of these two wonderful perspectives than their relationship to each other.

And this non-physical part of you is part of the energy called Source, some call God. It responds immediately to your desires, your preferences, and, this is the important part…also immediately becomes them.

So, you are sick, and desire to be well, first the non-physical part of you becomes well. Say you are fat, and you desire to be slim, first the non-physical part of you becomes slim and fit. Amazing! Now this newly expanded you is waiting to be manifested on your physical plane.

Great! But the only way it will manifest on the physical level, so that you start feeling well and become the slim person you want to be, is if you vibrate at the same “vibrational”match. The way you can tell if you are vibrating in this way is through your emotions. So the highest emotional equivalents are:

Joy/Empowerment/ Freedom/ Love and Appreciation.

Passion

Happiness

Optimism

There are therefore, actually NO actions you have take. You just have to allow it to happen. You have to find ways and choose thoughts that will bring you into vibrational harmony such that you experience these positive emotions around it.

I sometimes see it as playing the piano. The part of you that is non-physical is playing in the key of C and all you truly want is to be in tune with it. And unless you vibrate to this key of C, (say you vibrate with the emotion of discouragement in the key of E flat) there is disharmony between the two. You feel it as a bad feeling.

THE BACKWARDS POWER OF NOT

We live in a wonderous universe. It will bring to us what we think about with emotion- the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction is “that which is like unto itself is drawn.”

We want to be slim- it will bring slimness to us as we feel excited and eager about its coming. We desire financial abundance- it will bring opportunities, surprises. But what if, instead, we say: “I do not want to be fat. I hate being fat. I want all this fat to be gone.” The Law of Attraction only hears the “fat” part and it will bring to you…..more fat! This is why when you say ‘not’ to something you actually get more of what you don’t want. Its therefore essential to focus on being the slim and healthy you.

And because the non-physical part of you actually knows that your desire is to be slim, that slim you is waiting in what Abraham calls “vibrational escrow”, waiting for you to become the vibrational match to slimness. But you have attracted more fat, and because you are not playing in the same key as the true you, all is in disharmony and then you feel worse.

Your emotions will ALWAYS tell you whether you are moving towards that which you have desired ( downstream) or away from it (upstream).

And the words you think and/or say will bring to you their physical equivalent. The NOT is “not” factored into your request.

I am a wealthy, healthy, fit, and wise person.

I am filled with enthusiasm for my life, excitement for what is to come, and appreciation for everyone and everything I come into contact with.

I am free to live my life exactly as I choose.

NOW! YOU ARE PLAYING IN THE KEY OF C….

…and so it is.

The achievement of anything that you desire must be considered success, whether it is a trophy or money or relationships, or things. But if you will let your standard of success be your achievement of joy—everything else will fall easily into place. For in the finding of joy, you are finding vibrational alignment with the resources of the Universe- Abraham


Remember that you are extensions of Source Energy; that you are blessed, loved Beings; and that you are come forth into this physical time-space-reality to joyously create.
It is our powerful desire that you be pleased with where you are right now, in this moment- no matter where you are. We understand how strange these words must sound to you if you are standing in a place that seems far from where you want it to be. But it is our absolute promise to you that when you understand the power of feeling good now, no matter what, you will hold the key to the achievement of any state of being, any state of health any, state of wealth , or any state of anything that you desire- Abraham

See yourself right where you are now, as the beneficiary of the powerful Stream of Well-Being. Try to imagine that you are basking in the flow of this powerful stream. Make an effort to feel yourself as the Leading-Edge beneficiary of the unlimited stream, and smile and try to accept that you are worthy of it-Abraham

May your day today be one where you love yourself a little bit more than ever before.

Your emotions…Abraham teaches us that our emotions are our continual guidance system. I understand it like this.

In relation to my analogy of having little magnets embedded within me, each magnet representing a desire that I have identified, my emotions are what gives the magnets their strength to attract their equivalent to me.

Here is a scale of possible emotions from 1-22:

1.Joy/Knowledge/Empowerment/Love/Appreciation/Freedom

2.Passion
3.Enthusiasm
4.Positive expectation
5.Optimism
6.Hopefulness
7.Contentment
8.Boredom
9.Pessimism
10.Frustration/ Impatience/Irritation
11.Overwhelment
12.Disappointment
13.Doubt
14.Worry
15.Blame
16.Discouragement
17.Anger
18.Revenge
19.Hatred/Rage
20.Jealousy
21.Insecurity/Guilt/Unworthiness
22.Fear/Grief/Depression/Despair/Powerlessness

On any topic, and at any given time, we will be somewhere on this scale. And the more we can be on the top half, the more we will attract all our heart’s desires. The more we can live our life in a state of love and appreciation, then we are clearly sailing downstream, life is essentially effortless, and all sorts of wonderful things will appear.

But this is not always possible at first- what we need to to is to stop and ask ourselves “How am I feeling right now? Angry? Jealous? ” Abraham teaches to not attempt to jump right then to love or appreciation- too big a jump. But to reach for a thought that would give you relief- even a thought that would move you up to blame is better than staying in anger. And then to reach up for another thought that may take you to disappointment.. and so on and so on.

It also seems that we have also been given an amazing tool called “sitting still for 15 minutes and breathing in and out.” Some call this meditating- for me, I call it plugging into Source and re-charging. I can be feeling anger or frustration, start this process, and within minutes, I can feel the anger lessening, and moving up towards hopefulness, then enthusiasm until finally I can reach a place of love and joy. And then I can re-enter the world in a much better mood, and those numbers start to line up again, those parking spots appear, co-incidences happen, and then I know that I have aligned myself with Source, and I am filled with enthusiasm and appreciation again.

The way you feel is a clear and accurate indication of your alignment or misalignment with your Source energy. In other words, your emotions let you know if you are allowing, or if you are in a current state of resistance to, your connection with Source.

I sometimes have this vision of myself with little magnets embedded deep within me. These magnets are drawing all sorts of things that I desire- some things I have desired for a long time, some were just a strong thought or statement. These little magnets draw people, events and things to me- and the funny thing is, sometimes the person who shows up says that they too were wanting what I was wanting. And somehow, a Universal Manager or something, lines us up to come together.

In one of the Abraham videos I recently was watching, Abraham mentions how numbers will line up for Esther, like waking up one night to the clock saying 11:11, and then 12:12, 1:11, 2:22, 3:33 and so one… An audience member wanted to know what that meant; Abraham stated that when things like that show up, it simply shows how aligned you are with Source. I laughed.

The next day I was driving and looked at my dashboard to check the time, and noticed that the speedometer read 22,222km……I felt a shiver go through my body. And then a feeling of laughter again came over me. And of course, the next day I checked the time on my microwave and it was…4:44.

How fun to play with the idea of the Law of Attraction. How fun to see who will show up in our lives; what I used to call “co-incidences” I now suspect are only my little “magnets” drawing to me that which matches my desires. And since I desired to start a blog about things that inspired me, and wanted the people who would best enjoy it, and also be inspired by it to come- you have been attracted to be here ! I REALLY appreciate your doing so…..

Appreciation and self-love are the most important aspects you could ever nurture. Appreciation of others and the appreciation of yourself are the closest vibrational matches to Source Energy of anything we have every witnessed anywhere in this Universe- Abraham
