Ever since I was in my teens, I have pondered death and dying. I read many mystical books to find out what happened to us after we died. I experienced the death of a friend first hand when I was 19, and even more pondered where he had gone, could I still contact him somehow. And then when I worked as a pediatric nurse and midwife, I found myself having to comfort parents who lost children- some had strong religious beliefs and some none. Gradually, I came to a personal understanding. And when I started studying with Abraham, and came upon this teaching, I knew its truth for me and now want to share it with you:

You may appropriately depart your body without illness or pain.

You need not attract illness or pain as an excuse to leave. Your natural state coming, remaining or leaving is that of health and of Well-being. (You are free to choose otherwise.)

You can not die; you are Everlasting Life.

In grace, you may choose to relax and allow your gentle transition back into your Non-physical state of pure, positive Energy. Your natural state is that of Foreverness. (Have fun with all of this. Lighten up! You can’t get it wrong.)

I was reminded after reading this what my sixteen-year- old self wrote in my graduation high school annual for my Life’s Ambition:

To die happy and content

and so it is and will be…..

I was recently asked to explain how I understood this Universal Law. With help from the teachings of “Abraham”, this was my response:

Every thought vibrates, every thought radiates a signal, and every thought attracts a matching signal back- this is called the Law of Attraction.

It states: “That which is like unto itself is drawn.”

By this law, you draw to you the essence of whatever you are predominately thinking about.
So if you are predominately thinking about the things that you desire, your life experiences reflects those things. And, in the same way, if you are predominately thinking about what you do not want, your life experience reflects those things.

Whatever you are thinking about is like planning a future event. When you are appreciating, you are planning. When you are worrying, you are planning. Worrying is using your imagination to create something you do not want.

Nothing can occur in your life experience without your invitation of it through your thought.

This is the same for illness, poverty, any lack- for when you focus your thoughts upon the lack rather than what you really desire, it is the lack that is your dominant thought.

Your emotions are your guide as to whether you are moving towards that which you truly desire, or away from it. The closer you are to feeling joy, love and appreciation you are going in the right direction, the more fear, grief, anger or despair you feel you are moving away.

Did you know that you could have every deadly disease known to man in your body right now, and tomorrow they could be all gone if from one day to the next you leaned how to allow the Energy to flow? How do you get this Energy to flow? Little by little, saying to yourself things like “Nothing is more important than that I feel good. And I’m going to find ways to do so today. I am going to begin my day by meditating and then move through the day finding opportunities to appreciate, to praise,not criticize…etc etc etc.” As you move through the next many days, you will become less and less resistant, and all the things you have been wanting will begin to manifest: good health, lovers,ideal jobs, and wealth.
