I haven’t been posting in a while as I have been very involved on The Abe Forum.

A group of us decided to try meditating for 30 days, and yesterday was the completion. We had a powerful global meditation to mark the end of this journey. I am now meditating twice a day, and some amazing things are happening. I was searching the internet for some explanation and found this article by Owen Waters. Please enjoy reading it.

The Power of Your Inner Being
By Owen Waters

There is a power within you which very few suspect. While your “outer self” – your daily waking consciousness – is focused upon the external world, your inner being encompasses all aspects of your consciousness. Your inner being includes your outer self, your subconscious mind, and all the other, so-called “unconscious” parts of your mind that psychologists have tried to identify.

Your inner being is your complete consciousness. It is all of the “separate” parts of your consciousness in one unified package. Your inner being is also your soul – the real you, the complete you. It has also been referred to as your “higher self” because, compared to the consciousness of the outside world, most of your inner being operates at a higher frequency of consciousness. It manages many essential functions for you while your outer self focuses upon the experience of life in the external world through your five senses.

As members of the human race, we are spiritual adventurers who have projected ourselves into a physical realm in order to experience an intense focus of consciousness. Our purpose in the physical realm of consciousness is to gain a sharply-defined sense of identity and then to expand our awareness into heart-centered consciousness and beyond.

These stages of consciousness are reflected in the human chakra system, which is a set of gateways of consciousness between you and the outside world. The main portion of Western society today functions at the level of the solar plexus chakra, which emphasizes intellectual and technical development. Then, there is an ever-increasing body of people who function at the level of the heart chakra. These leading-edge people spend much of their time functioning through this holistic and integrative chakra. Here they learn how to be heartfelt and then – the next stage – heart-powered in their consciousness.

Through meditation, spiritual pioneers go further still and activate the throat chakra, which is the center of powerful creativity. It is also the level of consciousness where your soul or inner being is based. This higher frequency of consciousness carries with it an enormous power to create any reality that you need in order to realize your potential in life.

While the consciousness of the heart chakra is more expanded than that of the solar plexus chakra, the throat chakra is even more expanded still. Your inner being’s field of perception and influence reaches out to include many functions and abilities which are mostly dormant in the daily consciousness of the outer self. These include:

* An intuitive awareness of situations, one which sees deeply beneath any surface appearances.

* Spiritual connection. Your inner being is your personal connection to Infinite Being.

* Connection to the universe as a whole. Your inner self has the capability to be aware of anything that happens anywhere in the universe. It can also reach out to communicate with the inner being of anyone who has the answer to something which you seek to solve. It then feeds that information into your outer self’s focused segment of consciousness through intuition and dreams.

* The inner senses. These are inner versions of the outer senses. Inner sight is the sense that sees the subtle energy effects produced by fields of consciousness, such as, for example, human auras. Inner hearing provides empathic and telepathic communication with others as needed. Inner touch reveals the past history and associations of physical objects. Inner taste and smell provide an awareness of the subtle energies emanating from substances.

Imagine having access to all of these abilities! With them, you could sail through life, experiencing true joy, continually discovering and expressing more of your true potential in life.

These inner abilities do not have to be developed within your daily consciousness. You already possess them at the level of your inner being. You need only practice regular communication with your inner being in order to gain from this unlimited source of wisdom, insight and creativity. Tune into your inner being through regular, daily meditation, and by being receptive to the “still, small voice within” of your intuition. The more you pay attention to your intuitive insights, the more you realize how profoundly correct they are.

When you align with your inner self, your true potential begins to manifest and miracles begin to happen in your life!

I work at home in a ground floor office. Last week it was warm and I had all the doors open. I was working at my desk, looked up to my left when I heard a rustle, and there was a horse walking right into my office- no- not a horse. a dog, a VERY big dog, and he came right up to me and put his head in my lap……..before I could register what was happening, ANOTHER horse, no dog, followed him right over to me.

Black giant dog with head in lap drooled over me, I started laughing, stood up, and reached into my memory banks that BIG DOGS ARE GENTLE…and quietly told them to follow me outside. Dog #2 decided that the stairs leading to my comfy couches in the living room was a much better option- I had to coax him down the stairs, and led them both outside into my front yard.

I stood there wondering what to do. Were they lost, and who the heck owned them? My biggest fear at that point was that they would “poop” in my yard- I did NOT want to have to clean that up!

Well, they wandered off, and I called our Dog Catcher who never showed up. That was that.

Friday, I looked outside, and there was my friend again- Dog #1. I went outside, because now I was concerned that he was really lost and scared- I grabbed my portable phone with the Dog Catcher’s phone number. He came up to me wagging his giant tail, I sat on my bench on the porch, he settled down making sure his backside was on my foot, and we meditated together…….he eventually wandered off before DC came. When she did arrive, I had seen him go up my street, she went up and found out that my new neighbours who are currently just coming over the renovate the cabin, were their owners and would now keep them nearby.

I still laugh when I think of their strolling into my office- here is a picture of another person’s close encounter! And when I attract, I attract BIG these days!!!

I was reading some Abraham material yesterday, and felt inspired to offer this 30 day plan. I actually started doing this early last week, and it has been lovely, sweet, and energizing.

From Abraham: “Within 30 days of mild effort, you can go from being one of the most resistant people on the planet to one of the least resistant people on the planet- and then, those who are watching you will be amazed by the number of manifestations that begin to occur in your physical experience.”

And here is the affirmation from Abraham as well:

” I’m going to begin my day by meditating and bringing myself into alignment with my Source Energy. And as I move through the day, I am going to look for opportunities to appreciate, so that all day long I’ll bring myself back into Source Energy. If there is an opportunity to praise, I’m going to praise; if there is an opportunity to criticize, I’m going to keep my mouth shut and try to meditate. If I feel like criticizing, I’ll say, ‘ Here kitty, kitty,’ and I’ll pet my cat until that feeling goes away.”

There it is!

Care to join me? Fifteen minutes in the morning before starting our day, and then another meditation around 4 pm or whatever works for you- even just once a day is sufficient. How to do it? Just find a comfortable chair to sit in, and start to breathe- in and out, in and out- when you catch yourself thinking about stuff, just bring your thoughts back to your breathing. As time goes on, you will start to feel a lightness, a clarity, and you will just be in a timeless place, breathing and allowing.

When your heart is singing, you are allowing Well-being. When you are appreciating, you are allowing Well-being. When you are yelling at somebody, you’re not. When you’re feeling insecure, you’re not. When you’re frustrated, you’re not-Abraham

Excerpted from an Abraham-Hicks workshop in St. Louis, MO on Tuesday, July 18th, 2000

What a lovely day…fall is well upon us here in the Salish Sea. I can now really feel Well-being flow through me when I am appreciating, and the gloom that descends upon me when I am not.

Entering fifteen minutes of quiet meditation in the morning has been a way of allowing……playing piano….writing in my journal about all the things that I do appreciate is another. Life flows effortlessly and joyously along when I am allowing.

Learning that my feelings are good, valid and simply indicators has been liberating- when I feel “bad”, I now know to determine what it is that I am focusing on that I do not want, and then to determine what it is that I do want. Oh so simple…….and oh so powerful.

It was only minutes before they were passing over the crinkled blue of the Bristol Channel, and almost at once Combe Island lay beneath them, as unexpectedly as if it had risen from the waves, multicoloured and as sharply defined as a coloured photograph, its silver granite cliffs towering from the white boiling of foam. Dalgliesh reflected that it was impossible to view an offshore island from the air without a quickening of spirit. Bathed in autumnal sunshine there stretched a sea-estranged other world, deceptively calm but rekindling boyhood memories of fictional mystery, excitement and danger. Every island to a child is a treasure island. Even to an adult mind Combe, like every small island, sent out a paradoxical message: the contrast between its calm isolation and the latent power of the sea, which both protected and threatened its self-contained alluring peace.

-from “The Lighthouse” by P.D. James

I moved to my Island in the Salish Sea sixteen years ago, and when I read this last week I understood why….

When I travel, I seem to love taking pictures of doors…..Dublin was spectacular with the brightly painted Gerogian doorways. These doors are all from one street, directly across from the Irish Parliament buildings.

defenestrate \dee-FEN-uh-strayt\, transitive verb:

To throw out of a window.

Some of his apparent chums . . . would still happily defenestrate him if they caught him near a window.
— Andrew Marr, “No option bar the radical one”, Independent, July 5, 1994

I defenestrated a clock to see if time flies!
— Lane Smith, quoted in “Who’s News”, Time for Kids, September 25, 1998

From my high school French, I know that “fenetre” means “window” so this word now makes sense. But honestly, did you know that this word even existed in English? Hmmm…I have to mull over whether I have ever defenestrated (or wanted to) something……..perhaps an annoying alarm clock? A importunate infant (see April 8)???

At Sixth and Howard in San Francisco “Defenestration”:

Are you enjoying an expanded desire that has not yet manifested?-Abraham- Hicks

While listening to the most recent CD from an Abraham workshop last week, this statement caught my attention? At the time, I was NOT enjoying the wait for something to manifest- in fact, I was doing my darndest to not be cranky and impatient. I paused and considered this statement.

Firstly, what was meant by “expanded desire”? Why not just the word “desire”? The more I pondered, I got a glimpse of the word “expanded” in this context- I expand when I desire something- be it an improvement, better relationships, more money…Abraham does teach over and over again that our desires serve to “expand” the universe, but me? I started to get the feeling of my expanding outward, larger, fuller, greater, than where I had been BEFORE I had the desire, any desire.

So, I have a desire. For sake of this discussion, let’s say it is for a larger income. I have expanded my thinking about what is possible. I have thrown out a “rocket of desire” so to speak. And now, what I started to understand, I need to move into that “expanded” space with enjoyment. Enjoying the wait for Source to bring me what I have now requested. I mulled over the idea of a pregnant woman:

There are two things going on – the growing of the baby in utero, and the expectation of the baby once born. Both co-exist…..and getting impatient for the baby to come while being pregnant takes away from the whole experience of the…well…waiting. And of course, there is an optimum time for the baby to be born- not too early and not too late. And so someone who is pregnant KNOWS that their cherished baby will emerge at the end, and also finds a way to enjoy the wait.

A wise friend wrote me that there is only the now…the past was the now, and the future will be the now. My point of power is the now-“…your own point of VIBRATIONAL energy vortex is in the NOW MOMENT…”

And so, while waiting for an expanded desire to manifest, I found that walking on the beach, listening to music, enjoying my kids, cuddling with my husband, and just twirling around in the living room was the best way to enjoy the journey.

What do all these have in common? At first glance, not much.

Actually, they were all lovely thoughts in my mind a while ago- I had some friends leave for Tahiti last week, and I was mulling over while driving whether that was someplace I would ever go to- so romantic yet so far away. Ireland? Well, I had thought about Ireland last fall as someplace else I would like to go one day. The Cotswalds in England- a lovely place that also sounded so romantic and lovely. Las Vegas? My husband loves the heat in August there, and we love to leave the kids at home and spend some adult time seeing shows and eating at all the fantastic restaurants there. And Greece was the first vacation place my husband and I went to over 20 years ago.

So…what do they have now in common? Well, it looks like I am now going to all these places within the next year! Talk about Deliberate Creation- and truly, I only gave each of these places very light thoughts, and then between email invitations, co-incidences and some action on my part, all of these trips have manifested- some at no cost to me, some where we will even earn an income and some just because!

I cannot thank Esther and Jerry Hicks enough for bringing the Teachings of Abraham into the world- those teachings have transformed my life.

There are those moments in life when an all pervasive peace prevails. It is much like when Yahweh, on the seventh day, looked over all of creation and said ” It is Good, Tov!” And then rested.

I woke up this morning feeling that goodness… I looked around me and said ” It is good, and I am happy.”

Why?

I planted my small flower plots on my deck yesterday- that deck was just a vision in my mind’s eye last May, and this May it is now built and I can sit out an enjoy the surrounding trees.

I paid off my credit card bill yesterday, and there is still money left in my checking account. A month ago, my financial reality was looking grim, but again, in my mind I knew prosperity was to come. And an investment grew to the point where I could draw some money out yesterday to pay those pressing bills.

When I was a child, I played piano non-stop. When we moved at age 10, I stopped lessons. Yesterday, I took my first piano lesson in 45 years, and loved it. I am back to sitting in those quiet moments and playing music.

Our cold, rainy spring will change today- already I can see the sun starting to come up and the forecast is for sunny and hot. Not only that, we are starting a long-weekend here where I live. Can you imagine that??

My dear friend is coming to spend time with me this weekend and we are off to the spa this afternoon for some pampering, and then off to a dinner at another friend’s home to watch the sunset and welcome the Sabbath.

My children are all well, my husband is off in a foreign land with our oldest son exploring and enjoying life, and…. It is good and I am happy.
