hen you feel good, you are in the state of allowing all that is good. When you feel bad, you are not in a state of allowing that which is bad, you are in the state of disallowing that which is good. There is only a Source of Well-being. — G-3/18/00 Abraham-Hicks Publications P.O. Box 690070, San Antonio, TX 78269 Tel.

Hello from Jerry & Esther fish lake at the amazing Biltmore Estates. The “Art of Allowing” (third book in “The New Beginning” series) is nearly finished. New, fresh, up-to-data Abraham, filled with processes and stories to help us all live even more happily ever after. A fantastic cassette duplication company in California is now recording and labeling large portions of our cassette tapes. We have two wonderful new staff members, Gina and Joanie, in our office in San Antonio. The foundation has been poured on our new Abraham-Hicks (I can’t remember how many square foot) Center. (But it’s really big.) Our new schedule for year 2001 is now finished and printed here for you on page 5. We are having such a grand time in our monster bus experience that we are now making our list for our new 2002 model to pick up next July. Ed & Marie Hume are planning to meet us in several upcoming cities driving their beautiful new motorcoach, to assist Jana with meeting functions. Every day we are thankful for our wonderful lives. For our bright daughter, Tracy who does a million things (darn near) to keep things flowing at our office, interfacing constantly with us, making it possible for us to stay out on the road more than we are at home. For Jana, who interfaces with the hotels, along with so many other things, and then travels tirelessly to so many cities to help us with our workshops. For Barbara who kept saying, “Everthing is just great” when two staff members relocated to Houston leaving us short 1/3 of our staff while she figured out and managed to accomplish most of what they had been doing. To Gina and Joanie the two newest members of our team who happily do whatever is asked of them, fitting in as if they had always been there. There is even more “new” happening, but I’m fast running out of space here. Hmmmm, I think I’ll go call my dad. We love you,

“So what’s new?” My Dad has asked that, for years, whenever I would call to say, “Hello.” I remember always sort of stumbling through the answer because through so many of those years there wasn’t that much that was new. So, usually, my answer would be, “Oh, not much, how about you?” Today, I love the way that “So, what’s new?” feels, because there is such a powerful, steady stream of NEW flowing to us in every aspect of our lives. So, pretend that you’ve just said, “Hi Jerry & Esther, what’s new?” We are so glad you asked. A new set of Abraham videos filmed at our Bay area workshops are now being edited by Mike & Karen Sherlock. They should be ready for you by the next Quarterly Journal. Sharon Gleason and her son, Sam, met with us and demonstrated the process of recording our workshops right into our Macintosh computer! So cool! Then, Robert and Zan Dixon spent a couple of days with us actually using the editing program, launching us into a whole new approach for creating our tape program cassettes. A big time savings for Jerry. Jackie Grace gathered data, faxed quotes and information, phoned us, lovingly prodded, inspired and facilitated all of the above. Helene Pimsler and Judy Royer have (and this is amazing) completed the transcription of our vast library of over 500 cassettes. We are now readying them for our website. Our third Sara book is nearly finished. We may very well finish it, like the two before it, during our upcoming glorious week in Asheville, North Carolina, overlooking the

An Introduction to The Art of Allowing We’ve been calling this gathering The Science of Deliberate Creation, and surely it is that. But we are wanting to give it a new and emphatic subtitle. (a subtitle that you place even more importance upon than the title) We are calling this workshop The Art of Allowing. Because when you discover how to achieve vibrational harmony with your Source and with your desire, then you are in the vibrational state of allowing the things that you want. And it’s not a difficult thing to do once you understand the way your Guidance System works, and that Law of Attraction is always consistent. Law of Attraction says — that which is like unto itself is drawn. And everything is managed or organized by Law of Attraction. Law of Attraction is gloriously, blessedly, lovingly consistent. It never plays favorites. It never behaves differently for one than another. It is always what it is. It’s like the law of gravity—you can count on it.

Your Emotions are Your Guidance System Your emotions tell you everything that you need to know about your state of allowing or of not allowing. In other words, when you feel positive emotion it means you are in vibrational harmony with your Source, and you are allowing the good things that you are wanting to come to you. It is that simple. When you feel that which you call positive emotion, such as joy or appreciation, or a feeling of love or well-being... those feelings that make your heart sing, those exhilarating feelings, those feelings, whether it ranges from contentment to passion, those feelings that you would call good feelings, those feelings that you would wish for all people that you love, (and if you are very wise you would wish them for all people that you don’t even know and maybe not love) as you are in that place of feeling good — you are in the place of allowing. You are in the place of allowing what? Allowing Source Energy. Allowing connection with who you are.

As You Are in a Place of Feeling Good, You are in a Place of Allowing “Good”.

so that your Guidance System is sort of numb. It feels normal for many of you to feel a little ornery, or a little aggravated. In other words, you have become so accustomed to the feeling of resistance that you don’t understand the Guidance System when it is there within you. And because most of you have not been made aware of the process of Energy flowing, and how it feels as it flows through you, most of you have lost your place in your Creative Universe in terms of flowing Energy. You have become those, almost without exception, human beings who are charting the results of how you and others have flowed Energy. You have become post Energy studiers. You are looking at the manifestation, which is the result of how the Energy has been flowed, instead of being aware of how you’re flowing in the moment.

Allowing wellness. Allowing clarity. Allowing abundance of all things desired. When you feel negative emotion, such as anger or fear or frustration or rage, even anxiety, those feelings of depression... when you feel that which you call negative emotion, what that always means is, for some reason, right now, you are not in the state of allowing. Allowing what? Allowing Source Energy, allowing clarity, allowing all that is good. You are, instead, in the state of resisting. You are in a vibrational state where, for whatever reason, you have found some reason to focus in a way that disallows the Pure, Positive Energy, the Source Energy, the Energy that creates worlds from flowing to you and through you in the way that you’ve intended it. What a magnificent Guidance System, your emotions. Not something that has to be translated by another. Not something that has to be written in a book and studied for years to be understood. It is right there within you in the moment.

You Live in a Sea of Well-Being

Your Power is All In The Now The only thing that matters is how you’re flowing in the moment. Right now is where all of your power is. Right now you are either open and allowing your Life Force to flow or not — and you can tell by the way you feel whether you are allowing or not. You are receivers of Well-being in extraordinary fashion. You live in a sea, or an arena, of grace. Well-being is the sea that surrounds you. But

Why Aren’t More Using Their Guidance System? So why aren’t more people utilizing their Guidance System to hold themselves more often in a state of allowing the things that they want? Because you have become accustomed to the feeling of resistance, so much

Love ❥ Appreciation ❥ Love Filled with Excitement

I am filled with so much excitement. About two weeks ago I found your site and started reading your newsletters. They reach into my depths and concur with everything that I believe about God and life. Thank you for sharing your message. Over the past two days I have been practicing what you describe as a perfect day, and boy, have I been having fun. I just had to write and say thank you. I feel as if I have finally come home. The phrase that stays with me all the time is: “Feel the freshness of your eternal now.” I feel as if a well of joy has been opened up inside of me. C — South Africa

others. I wish you all continued joy, happiness and success in all that you intend for yourselves. There is great love for you here. MD — NY When I was about 22, I started on my path to find out who I am and why I am here. At 65 years old, I have studied virtually all the world’s philosophies. I have learned techniques and hopefully they provided key understandings of who I was... and what skills and concerns I have now. I had a very good idea of the answers. I had a huge “philosophical” library, but after reading your material, I gave most everything away. I have not only purchased your books and tapes for me but have subsequently purchased books for others who I know have the same questions and concerns that I had. Prof. RA —CA

World Philosophies

I was one of many who attended your gathering yesterday in Syracuse, NY. What a wonderful and empowering day! My wife and I have both been experiencing tremendous Spiritual growth in the past year, greatly due to the teachings you have made available to us. My wife, a polished Psychic and Medium incorporates your lessons in every session she holds. Her clients are amazed and thrilled when they incorporate the lessons and then realize IT WORKS! I too share your lessons with my clients. It is such a wonderful and joyous feeling when I am able to influence another and help them to find joy and happiness for themselves. All in all, my experience with you yesterday was incredible. As I spoke to Abraham directly I was nervous, excited and honored. When I looked into your eyes, Esther, I was not sure what to expect, but what I saw and felt was knowledge. An incredible experience! We will continue to learn and enjoy through your tapes and teachings. I will also continue to share what I have learned with

An Incredible Experience

A great thing about returning from an extended travel is coming home to several weekly tape packages waiting to be opened and popped into the car tape player — and drive around the countryside with fresh Abraham. I Love It! CH — CT

Coming Home

Thank you and God Bless you both for doing this important work! Your tapes consistently launch me into a greater state of vibration. From you, I am choosing the better thought and choosing the better thought... I was sent a tape recently and am so moved by it that I would like to buy five copies for friends and family. It is dated May 27, 2000. Thank you both. And again, bless you both. Please give my love to Abraham, RP — CA

Great Vibrations

Love ❥ Appreciation ❥ Love seminars to purchase the tapes of the seminar they attend. It is truly amazing what all we miss in the message. I also purchased the Albany, NY tapes. They are awesome! Thanks for all that you do. See you in Dallas, and to the Universe I cast my hopes for San Antonio. CJ — TX

Questions Answered

I definitely will be attending the open house at Jerry & Esther’s. Wild horses couldn’t keep me away!!! I am coming up with some really good questions for Abraham — but I keep getting the answers on each new tape I listen to. Boy! Am I Powerful or What? Love to you all, MC — TX

Many is the time when listening to your tapes I have wanted to thank you both for being who you are and getting these ideas out to those ready to hear you. I know from my own near death experience that we don’t die, our awareness, who we are is, just is, and Ising continues to be. And while I tell those with whom I come into contact with, I’m not putting myself out there like you two are. I feel we, as a collective, will move beyond the need to learn through pain and illness, and your participation is part of the catalyst for that. I have many hundreds of books on tape that I share with others, but your materials make it practical and applicable, today, to change our lives, for it is truly perceptual. I wanted this to just express my thanks to you for all that you are and your openness to share your world with others moving along similar thought patterns. You are truly a gift to me. Love, DH — CA

Practical & Applicable

Since I subscribed to your weekly tape program, I get high every time I listen to you, and the effect lasts until the next tape arrives. It is a great feeling, and the ups and downs of everyday don’t seem to affect me that much any more. Things are going better all the time. I feel so blessed, so grateful for all of life, for each person I come in contact with, for the loving of my beautiful dog, my husband, my work and really for everything. There are no words to describe this ever increasing joy. And all that has shifted is my attitude, thanks to Abraham. Best regards and lots of love to both of you and Abraham. EL — TX

A Shifted Attitude

Thank you for delivering Abraham’s loving, uplifting message to me and all who have been asking for greater understanding and power. The value is beyond description. I appreciate every word and every concept, as my knowledge and joy expand day after day through the months and years. FH — CA

An Uplifting Message

In my book, there is no faster, more stimulating, better way to activate ANY spiritual path than listening to Abraham audio tapes. Go to http://www.abraham-hicks.com and order their free tape, and if you like it, get on their weekly or monthly tape subscription series. We have been listening to these tapes for 10 years now, and they compliment ALL of the spiritual paths we explore! FW — ID

No Faster, Better Way

A short message to let you know how much I enjoyed the Albuquerque gathering. It is amazing how our vibrations change, and then we hear other messages relayed in these sessions. I want to encourage everyone attending these

Tapes Are Awesome

! W E N G-SERIES TAPES — SPRING, 2000

Introducing the Art of Allowing The Laws of the Universe are never complicated. It is the details of your life that tend to complicate them. But it is also the details of your life, in their complication, that tend to take thought beyond that which it has been before. As we see your physical platform, we see it as the perfect environment in which to be. There is no place that any of us would rather be than here, focused in the perfection of your contrasting experience — feeling the power of the desires that come forth within you. If there is anything that we, from our Nonphysical perspective, are wanting you to know, it is that everything is right as it is. In other words, there are not injustices. There are not things that should not be, because the Law of Attraction is always very even-handed. It is always very fair minded. If you, no matter where you stand, are to ever be empowered by your own knowledge, then Law of Attraction must be consistent. And it is. What you’re thinking and feeling and what you’re getting are always a vibrational match. And if you don’t like what you’re getting, then you must try to think and feel differently. And so, we encourage you to practice the Art of Allowing. Reach for the thought that feels best. And watch the most extraordinary things transform overnight. We have enjoyed this interaction immensely. There is enormous love here for you. We are complete. (Excerpted from Abraham-Hicks Workshop — G-5/6/00 — Albany, NY)

G-2/15/00 — When fanning both ends of Vibrational Stick. Prosperity, vitamins, exercise and health? When a co-creator’s different desires are involved? Ouija Boards, Thought Forms and Focal Points? To know if it’s a “worthy” thought? Should they conceive a child or not? The relationship between “forgiveness” and unconditional love. G-2/19/00 — Does her divorce attitude affect current relationships? Scientist questions the evolution of earth’s animals. Positive aspects of the Internal Revenue Service. Are we authentically “wired to be selfish”? To not put family at financial risk? Lovable Cat demonstrates Laws of Universe. Teen daughter is leading the sexual revolution.”

G-series tapes SPRING, 2000 G-2/26/00 — Learning to Allow Life-giving Energy to Flow. Why is student healer experiencing illness? Why Esther leaves the answering to Abraham. Treat that cancer “Stick” like a hot potato. Can he miraculously recover, financially and physically? Lawyer feels a limitation of desired time. Why is Alzheimer’s disease taking so long? G-3/7/00 —How did historical Moses receive his information? Pesticides, sun damage, thoughts and feelings? Could man not live on dirt alone? Prominent actress’ answering machine is bogging down. Maintain passion for relationship and business too? Your nation’s politicians really do mean well. Is joy the purpose of “have-nots” too? G-3/11/00 — Which way is your endless loop looping? She has everything except a loving relationship. He is wrestling with his abundance allowance. She’s “working on” creating her ignored vision. What is the actual process of death? Does Abraham’s teachings justify self-centered behavior? Considering his concern for wildlife habitat loss. G-3/14/00 — How to get from motivation to inspiration? Using doctors, lawyers and ministers as facilitators. What national political system would Abraham endorse? Stopping irritating habits between husbands and wives?

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS are distorting. But it is our promise to you that when that time is there for you, that the transition is very quick. The problem with most people is that they worry about death. They’re pushing very hard against it. Death is not seen by most of you as the natural thing, or as the glorious, good transitioning thing that it is. Instead, it is seen as a bad thing, something so bad that you give it to those people that you hate most. You give them the “death penalty.” Think about it. You’re not giving them the reward of death. You’re not giving them the relief of death, or the release of death. You have figured that it’s about the worst thing that could ever happen to any of you, and then you save it as punishment to wield in the worst possible way. It’s no wonder that you worry about it, because all of you know that it’s coming to you. And so, we can understand how you would be a little confused about how you would feel about it. But we have to say to you, you live in this Universe that is always yielding good things to you, and that the transition into Nonphysical is like, in one fell swoop, leaving behind all worry and fear. But what happens is, you see it as something not wanted, and so you push against it. Most people are pushing so hard against this death thing that they are not allowing themselves to truly live. So,

Death: What is the Actual Process? Guest: I’ve heard you talk an a lot about death in the last year that... [We thought we were talking about life.] The thing that I’m still not complete with, is the actual process of the transition itself. I can think about after the transition and be very comfortable with that, but if I think about drowning or falling out of an airplane or some other horrible way of dying, I don’t feel real comfortable with that. Abraham: Do you ever have a bad dream? [Yes] And do you ever wake up right in the middle of it? [Yes] That’s what death is like in those “horrible” situations you just described. In other words, right in the middle of something that you feel would be abhorrent or intolerable, you wake up into the reality of who you really are — And it is like a distant dream that is not in your now. Guest: So I wake up before it’s so horrible that I can’t stand it any more? Abraham: Always, every single time, without exception. Anytime you try to superimpose how you would feel in a given situation, you 12


QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS there are few of you that are really living in the free, good feeling, of this moment, that you could if you were releasing your fear of death. If we were standing in your physical shoes we would begin saying, on a regular basis, “I love this physical experience. And as long as there are things that are drawing my attention, and as long as I am able to allow the Energy to flow through me, I want to run rambunctiously in this physical body. I want a long, healthy, happy physical experience. And when there are no longer things that are calling me, I will make my transition quickly.” In this physical time/space reality, it’s pretty easy for you to utilize the contrast. You are becoming a global consciousness. You have lots of experiences, early in life experience. There is always more for you, but often you find yourself not able to find something more that you are wanting. But your Inner Being is never in that position. And in the moment that you spend time saying, “Well, I’m really not interested in that, and I’m really not interested in that,” and you are not able to muster something that is summoning life through you, your Inner Being always says, “Well, there’s plenty going on here, come on with us.” So there is a withdrawal of your consciousness from here — just like getting up and walking out of a movie that’s no longer pleasing you, or leaving a conversation that doesn’t

feel good any more. But your consciousness does not miss a beat. And so, the only question that we really want to talk about, relative to the death process, is not about the moment of death, that’s a piece of cake. What we want to talk to you about is how much you are willing to endure not being fully connected to Source Energy before you make that decision. We would far rather that all of you walk out and get run over by a truck, in the moment that you leave this building, than that you spend long lingering years worrying about one thing and another, and pinching the Life Force off, little by little. It is much more effective to just get it over with, reemerge into Nonphysical — and then make another run at something that will summon more Energy through you. That’s what the beasts of your planet do. They come and go very easily because they’re not worried about death. They know they’re eternal beings. They are always fully focused in life. And they come to their full maturity faster and easier in life experience, and so they come in, they become mature, they experience the deliciousness of life, they make their transition — and they come again, and again, and again and again. And you are the same. From Abraham-Hicks Workshop G-3/11/00 — Burlingame, CA

A Review of the Book: Sara

and the Foreverness of Friends of a Feather,

...My whole family read this book and we haven’t been the same since. My husband, perhaps, was the most moved by it. He actually said that it had such a tremendous impact on him that he looks at life with new eyes. It’s like being nearsighted your whole life and then finally getting glasses. Everything becomes crystal clear. I cannot say enough good things about this life-transforming book. If there is only one book you ever buy, make sure it is this one. You won’t regret it! (all ages) by Denise Tarsitano in the “Rising Star Series.

Excerpted from phenomeNEWS “Mixed Reviews” 9/9/98 ...Sara and the Foreverness of Friends of a Feather is a novel about a young girl, Sara, who learns about life through a wise owl named Solomon. Readers will understand how they, too, can become the magnificent creators they were born to be and that all really is in divine order ... all really is well. When Sara comes to this knowing, she asks her wise mentor, “Solomon, how ever will I ever explain this to anybody? How will I ever make them understand?” And Solomon speaks to all of us as he answers, “Sara that is not your work. It is enough, Sweet Girl, that you understand.” Sara is also available on audio cassette tapes. Jerry Hicks brings his show business background to a delightfully orchestrated version of the book as he breathes joy and vitality into each character. For children of all ages, from 5 to 105. Sara and the Foreverness of Friends of a Feather is a wonderful gift to give yourself or anyone who wants a greater understanding of life. We highly recommend the book, and the Book on Tape — and all of the Abraham-Hicks material. Reviewed by Cindy Saul (and I helped, too! — Gerri Magee) And Abraham says, “This book will help you to remember that you are an eternal being... and it will help you to discover the everlasting bond that connects joyous loved ones to one another.” Order the book: SARA I — Sara and the Foreverness of Friends of a Feather $15.00 (plus S/H) Softcover.— ISBN 0-9621219-4-0

S

ara and Seth, Solomon’s Fine Featherless Friends is now available as an unabridged book on tape. Containing three audio-cassettes, this album offers over four hours of inspiring, uplifting and adventurous listening. Whether at the wheel of your vehicle or doing mundane chores or simply relaxing with closed eyes, you can now comfortably absorb the pleasure of this extraordinary magical relationship between Sara and her new friend of a feather, Seth... plus, her ethereal owl friend, Solomon, makes his welcome reappearance, adding his wise perspective to their/our learning experiences. To order: S3SARAII — Sara II, The Book on Tape $30 plus S/H (Order by phone 830 755-2299, or mail, fax, or on-line — page 29)

special offer: For a limited time, when you order your Book on Tape album of Sara II for the regular price of $30 you may also receive a complimentary companion copy of the Book, Sara and Seth, Solomon’s Fine Featherless Friends. Both included in your album price of $30 (plus S/H). Ask for “FREE SARA II” soft cover book when you order the Book on Tape. (See order form on page 29.) An experience with Sara and Seth, Solomon’s Fine Featherless Friends would benefit anyone, of any age, wanting to understand how they can change their lives, because, as Abraham says, the broader message is “wedged between the cracks” of this seemingly simple storyline. And the message is strong and clear: You are living what you are vibrating. As Solomon says in the early part of the book, Law of Attraction (that which is like unto itself is drawn) is really behind everything that comes to you, or happens to you. And so, if you are a vibrational match to good things, then only good things can come to you... If you carefully observe the way you are feeling, and then you notice that what comes to you matches that feeling, you then begin to understand how Law of Attraction works. Then you understand that by changing the way you feel — you can change how things turn out.” Come, drink in Solomon’s wisdom and feel the resonance inside as this wise bird rings your bells of self-discovery. The door to a joyous life experience awaits you.

A Review of the Book Sara and Seth, Solomon’s Fine Featherless Friends ...My family had read the first Sara book and were captivated by its wisdom and clarity. I knew we were in for a treat with this new story, “Sara and Seth”, but I had no idea just how much of an impact it would have on all of us. Seth is the new boy in Sara’s mountain town... an “intense seeker” of answers to life’s puzzling questions... Seth and Sara are drawn together (Law of Attraction) and embark on a wild, fun-filled, roller-coaster of a ride toward enlightenment and self-discovery. Sara introduces Seth to Solomon (the wise old owl from the first Sara book) who, in turn, answers the questions that have plagued Seth... And as we are seeing Seth and Sara’s growth and joy and understanding unfold under Solomon’s tutelage, we the readers are also absorbing and processing the practical and spiritually uplifting information. This book is truly a gift! It’s like a gold-encrusted treasure chest laden with precious jewels. The only thing you have to do is pluck the pearls of wisdom that are strewn throughout the story and clutch them to your heart. One such pearl for me was when Sara asked Solomon if he was mad or disappointed in her. The answer Solomon gave to her is one that I have committed to memory, for I know I will be using it with my own loved ones forever. I had tears of happiness and gratitude streaming down my face when I finished this book, for it accomplished a profoundly difficult task — that of presenting the way the Universe (life) works in a profoundly simple, joyful and graceful way. The sheer brilliance of this unassuming little book with its powerful message (of Well-being) Order: SARA II — Sara & Seth, Solomon’s Fine Featherless Friends! $15 plus S/H — ISBN 0-9621219-7-5 ORDER BY PHONE (830) 755-2299 (OR BY MAIL, FAX OR ON-LINE — PAGE 29)

A Twelve Point Synopsis of Abraham-Hicks’ Teachings

1

You Are a Physical Extension of That Which is Nonphysical.

2

You Are Here in This Body Because You Chose to Be Here.

3

The Basis of Your Life is Freedom; the Purpose of Your Life is Joy.

4

You Are a Creator; You Create With Your Every Thought.

5

Anything That You Can Imagine is Yours to Be or Do or Have.

6

As You Are Choosing Your Thoughts, Your Emotions Are Guiding You.

All-That-Is, or that which you call God, is not finished and waiting for you to catch up. You are the leading edge of thought, here seeking more: more of all that feels good to you, more of that which is fresh and gloriously uplifting. (You are, in essence, bringing heaven to earth.)

You chose the opportunity to experience this delicious contrast in time and space, and with great anticipation you came to co-create with other joy-seeking beings, to fine-tune the process of deliberate thought. (What, where, when and with whom you create are your choices, too.)

You are free to choose to discover new avenues for your joy. In your joy you will grow, and in your joyous growth you will add to the growth experience of All-That-Is. (However, you are also free to choose bondage or pain.)

By the Universal Law of Attraction, you are attracting the essence of whatever you are choosing to give your attention to — whether wanted or unwanted. And so, you often create by default. But you can know by how your emotion feels if what you are attracting (creating) is what you are wanting or if it is not what you are wanting. (Where is your attention focused?)

As you ask yourself why you want it, the essence of your desire is activated, and the Universe begins to bring it to you. The more intense your positive feelings, the faster it is coming to you. (It is as easy to create a castle as a button.)

Your loving Inner Being offers guidance in the form of emotion. Entertain a wanted or unwanted thought, and you feel a wanted or unwanted emotion. Choose to change the thought and you have changed the emotion — and you have changed the creation. (Make more choices in every day.)

18


7

The Universe Adores You for it Knows Your Broadest Intentions.

8

Relax into Your Natural Well-being. All is Well. (Really It Is!)

9

You Are a Creator of Thoughtways on Your Unique Path of Joy.

You have chosen to come to earth with great intentions, and the Universe constantly guides you on your chosen path. When you are feeling good, you are, in that moment, allowing more of that which you have intended from your broader perspective. (You are Spirit Incarnate.) The essence of all that you appreciate is constantly flowing into your reality. As you find more things to appreciate, your state of appreciation opens more avenues to more for which to feel appreciation. (As you think, you vibrate. As you vibrate, you attract.)

No one can limit where you can direct your thought. There are no limits to your joyous journeys to experience. On the path to your happiness you will discover all that you want to be or do or have. (Allowing others their experiences allows you yours.)

10

Actions to Be Taken and Possessions to Be Exchanged Are By-products of Your Focus on Joy.

11

You May Appropriately Depart Your Body Without Illness or Pain.

12

You Can Not Die; You Are Everlasting Life.

On your deliberately joyous journey your actions will be inspired, your resources will be abundant, and you will know by the way you feel that you are fulfilling your reason for life. (Most have this one backwards, therefore most feel little joy in their actions or their possessions.) You need not attract illness or pain as an excuse to leave your body. Your natural state — coming, remaining or leaving — is that of health and Well-being. (You are free to choose otherwise.) In grace, you may choose to relax and allow your gentle transition back into your Nonphysical state of pure, positive Energy. Your natural state is that of Foreverness. (Have fun with all of this! You can’t get it wrong, and you’ll never get it done.)

PS

It is not necessary for even one other person to understand the Laws of the Universe or the processes that we are offering here in order for you to have a wonderful, happy, productive Life Experience — for you are the attractor of your experience. Just you! Jerry & Esther Hicks — 11/95 (www.abraham-hicks.com)

Specific processes are offered here to help you learn how to harness this Law — to get what you want. AB-3 LAW OF DELIBERATE CREATION * — Discover the ecstasy of understanding universal Laws which are absolute — no matter what the circumstances. Without an understanding of this universal Law, it is as if you are playing in a game where the rules are not understood, so it is not only impossible to know if what you are doing is appropriate, but you do not know how to win the game. The rules of the game of life are clearly offered here. 20


SPECIAL SUBJECT TAPES — VOL I AB-4 LAW OF ALLOWING * — Of all things that you will come to understand through this physical life experience, nothing is more important than to become an allower.

Follow this step-by-step process for awakening. AB-7 RELATIONSHIPS, AGREEMENTS — We are all creators as we individually think and plan, but we are also often co-creators as we interact with others.

AB-9 CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS — While it can be satisfying to read and remember the teachings of the great ones who have gone before us, it is ever more joyous to discover the power of that knowledge within our own being. Learn the process to go within — as Christ encouraged — to experience the blissful oneness with Christ. AB-10 ADDICTIONS — Habits, or compulsions, or addictions can range from annoying to destroying. Often, long after they are no longer wanted, they can bind and control your life. As you listen to this recording — you will for the first time understand exactly what the addiction is, and the simple process offered here will free you from it. AB-11 JOYOUS SURVIVAL — While there are seemingly earth shattering events occurring in greater frequency upon your planet, you need not be affected by them. Discover how to create and control your experience in this seemingly unstable environment. 21


QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Jerry and Esther have a new cat they kidnapped when they were in Louisiana. The cat really kidnapped them. And now this cat, Lovable Cat is her name, they call her LC, lives at the office. And Jerry wanted her to have freedom, and so, in the beautiful new office building, the carpenters cut a door for LC to come in and out. They put it in the wall and built a chute. At first L.C. did not like the idea of the door, Jerry said it was like trying to put the toothpaste back in the tube. And then he watched her first emergence. Here’s she’s standing in the break room, a very beautiful room inside. And then she leaps up onto her shelf and she pokes herself through the tube, and then out into the bright sunlight. Well, death is sort of like that. It’s not a bigger transition than that. It is going from one perspective to another. There is no sense of having left behind something. Instead, there is the exhilaration about what is on the other side. What we’re wanting you to understand is that once L.C. goes outside, she is equally free to come back in. So she’s in and out, and in and out... And that is the way it is from the Nonphysical perspective. The question is, why have those of you who are still remaining in the break room limited yourself only to that experience? And that really is what these workshops are about. We’re wanting to help you to consciously reconnect with that Broader Self that you know you are. And once you gain that awareness of the wholeness of who you are, then you’re like the cat that’s back and forth and back and forth, not feeling any big deal about it, having a glorious experience — no matter where your consciousness is focused.

Death, As Compared to L.C.’s Cat Door Guest: My brother-in-law passed away at 39 years old. And it was just a shock to everybody. My in-laws are really struggling. Is there anything that I can do to make a difference for them. Abraham: There are so many things that we’re wanting to give you around this subject because we think you’re ready for it. The reason someone this young and this vital does something like that, is to assist all of you in understanding that there is not death. Physical beings have treated the subject of death as something not wanted and something inappropriate for so long, and yet you have yourselves in an impossible thing: Death is something every single one of you are going to experience. How do you stand pushing so hard against something that is so inevitable? Do you feel the absurdity of that? If this Universe has at its basis only Well-being, how could something as abhorrent as what you think death is, even exist in that Energy? You are eternal beings. You walk into this room, you all come willingly, and yet you have not committed your life to being in this room. In a few hours you’re going to get up and you’re going to walk out of here. And everybody’s going to say, that’s just fine. And yet, when somebody makes their transition which is no different than that, they just withdraw their attention from one room and give their attention to another room — you all act like it’s the end of the room. You act like it’s the end of the world.

22


QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Physical beings feel so earth bound. You think you only can stay in the break room. You don’t know you have access to all of that other stuff. And we know that even as we speak about death, that the worry that you are feeling is for those that feel as if they’ve been left behind. And we want you to understand that you are not left behind. But you have to accept the fullness of who you are, in order to understand that. The death experience of someone like this is usually the catalyst that causes others to open and expand themselves to the awareness that you are not limited only to this brief physical experience. But you see, there is really not much value if someone dies and you suffer deeply. And then as you move through time, and as you just get more distance between the tragedy of their death and where you now stand, you feel better. Because the next time you turn around, somebody else is going to die, and you have to go through the same horrible experience all over again. The only remedy to this is the acceptance that there is not death. Every living thing, animal or human or tree, experiences that which is called death, with no exception. Now that’s not a hard one to grasp, you’ve all accepted that one a long time ago. Spirit, which is who we really are, or Source, is Eternal. So what death must be is a changing of the perspective of that Eternal Spirit. If I am standing in my physical body and am consciously connected to that Eternal Spirit, then I’m Eternal in nature. And I need not ever again fear any endedness, because from that perspective, I understand that there is not

any of that. Because there is no such thing as death. If there is anything for you to fear, it would be the resistance which pinches that off. You take, as humans, this nonexistent subject of death and use it as your excuse to pinch off the Life Force. That is the true tragedy. And so, you’re trying to help these dear parents restore themselves to the vivacious, loving, happy, joyous beings that they are capable of being. We know it is not so easy when your son lies dead, but when you turn your attention to something else that lives, Life Force must return. It really is that simple. So how do you make someone understand something that you understand? You can’t. All you can do is understand it. So your greatest gift to them is just know what you know about death, know that it is nonexistent, know that this man, this being, exists eternally, know that he can come through the cat door either way, know that he is constantly, consistently focused here, know that he has awareness about what all of you are doing, know that his interest in what you are doing has not changed at all. Know that you have the ability to interact with him. Know that he has the ability to interact with you. And make that a real experience for yourself. And then talk about it as if it is a normal experience. Let it be the normal experience that it really is. And let’s bring this subject of death out into the light where it belongs, and see it for what it really is. Abraham-Hicks Workshop G-5/6/00 — Albany, NY

Quarterly Quotes from Abraham-Hicks

T

T

he content of your vibration equals how you feel right now. And whether you’re thinking about the past, the present or the future, how you feel right now — as you think about the past, the present or the future — is your life. And it’s a precious, fabulous, creative life that you are not wanting to squander in a place of resistance. Your life is right now. San Francisco, CA — G-3/11/00

he Universe does not know if the vibration you are offering is because of what you are imagining, or because of what you are observing. In either case, it is responding. Where the emotion comes in, is that emotion is your guidance or your response to your vibration. Your emotion does not create. Emotion is your indicator of what you are already creating. As you think, you vibrate. And it is your vibrational offering that equals your point of attraction. So it’s always a match. What you are thinking and what is coming back to you is always a vibrational match. The emotion (your Guidance System) is telling you what’s coming. North Los Angeles, CA — G-3/7/00

A

n activated thought means a thought that when I think it, I have a feeling response. If you’re not having a feeling response to something, a feeling that feels good or a feeling that feels bad — the thought is not that powerful, and it is probably not a big player in your vibrational mix. Monterey, CA — G-3/14/00

T

he Universe is not discriminating about the rightness or the wrongness of your request. It is here to accommodate all requests. All you have to do is be a Vibrational Match to your request, and the Universe will yield it to you. Sacramento, CA — G-5/13/00

W

hen you reach for the thought that feels better, the Universe is now responding differently to you because of that effort. And so, the things that follow you get better and better, too. So it gets easier to reach for the thought that feels better, because you are on ever-increasing, improving platforms that feel better. San Francisco, CA — G-3/11/00

S

ay yes to whatever it is. Because if you say yes to it and then you get in the middle of it, and you say, “Uh oh, this isn’t really turning out the way I wanted it to,” then out of that is born another desire. And as you say yes to that, then it turns out. And you say, “Well, it’s still not quite right.” So you have another desire... ‘Til eventually you get it exactly right. You cannot get it wrong. No creation is ever complete. Just do it. Tucson, AZ — G-2/15/00

O

nce you start deliberately offering thought, then you can never offer enough action to keep up with the thought. Once you access the Energy that creates worlds, a huge vortex comes into place, and there’s just not enough action for you to keep up with that. And so, what you have to do is visualize every step of the way, envision you happy in the process. Envision things in place, envision people catching on. Just envision it working.

Quarterly Quotes from Abraham-Hicks

T

T

hink about that little smear that starts out as the human body, and then there’s a nose and a liver and a gizzard, oh, not a gizzard... All that stuff that is present and knows how to become this. There’s so much knowledge within the human body. You’re wanting to free the human body’s knowledge to be well from the resistance that has been picked up along this physical trail. The very best approach to medicine is,”Well, I see your physical body is sick, what’s been bothering you? What are you worried about? What are you angry about? What are you frustrated about?” Because that is what is at the root of all of this. And then say, “Let it go, let it go, let it go.” That’s the message, and if they could hear you and do that, then they would all be well right away. Ashland, OR — G-5/16/00

he buffer of time gives you the opportunity to get it right before it manifests, to take pleasure from the vision and from the molding it into place… Can you imagine if everything was manifesting instantly? You would manifest this, and then you would manifest it away. And then you’d manifest that, and then… It would be a difficult thing if you were instantly manifesting every whim or every misaligned thought. It’s so much better that you have this buffer of time where you can feel it into perfection before it manifests into your experience. Ashland, OR — G-5/16/00

N

othing needs to be fixed. Everything is unfolding perfectly. So when you stand in your now accepting that all is well, then from that vibration, you become surrounded by more and more evidence that all is well. But when you’re convinced that things are broken, that there is pollution, or that things have gone wrong, or that the government is doing conspiracies... then what happens is you get caught up in that vibration, and you begin to manifest that kind of stuff, and then you say, “See, I told you that things were going wrong.” North Los Angeles, CA — G-3/7/00

R

elationships are forever. They are eternal. Not just permanent in this lifetime. Once you establish a relationship, it is an eternal relationship. What holds bad things in your life is always your attention to those bad things, always. Sacramento, CA — G-5/13/00

E

very living thing, animal or human, or tree experiences that which is called death, with no exception. You’ve all accepted that one a long time ago. Spirit, which is who we really are, or Source, is eternal. So what death must be is a changing of the perspective of that Eternal Spirit. If I am standing in my physical body and am consciously connected to that Eternal Spirit, then I’m Eternal in nature and I need not ever again fear any endedness, because, from that perspective I understand that there is not any of that. Albany, NY — G-5/6/00

T

he question is, “Well, what about the little ones? What about the (unhealthy) babies?” And we say, they’ve been exposed to a vibration, even in the womb, that caused them to disallow the Well-being that would have been there otherwise. But once they are born, no matter what their disability, if they could be encouraged to the thought that would allow it, then, even after the body is fully formed, it could be regenerated into something that is well. Ashland, OR — G-5/16/00

Prior to the workshop I had listened to the tapes and read some of the books and had found this very helpful to me.

Much love. — Illinois TO RESERVE OR SUBSCRIBE, CALL OUR OFFICE AT 830 755-2299

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS But most of you are accustomed to responding to the reality that you are living — and so, you are having knee-jerk responses to what already is. You said, “often I find it’s better to just clear the deck.” So it’s sort of like wiping away your launching pad. It is often more beneficial to stand right where you are, even if it’s in a place that you don’t want to be, so much, and let the contrast net you a really good rocket of desire. Any subject that you take, if you will run with it long enough, it will do one of two things: It will either produce more clarity of what is wanted, or more clarity of what is not wanted. It will stir something up. And in either way you win, because all genius is, is attention to a subject. So if you get hold of something, and you really focus on it, the Universe is going to give you more information about it. What often happens, though, is that you’re sort of running in two directions with it. You’re going with it because you don’t know what else to do, but you’re not enjoying it fully. And so, you’re fanning both ends of that “Stick,” which gives you the feeling that you’re standing still, until finally it just becomes unpleasant, and then you just put the “Stick” down. Don’t spend much time doing anything that isn’t feeling really, really good. If it doesn’t get to feeling good, pretty darn fast, then leave it and reach for another.

Should We Persist In Wanting Our Wants? Guest: I’m looking for tools to have better clarity quicker. Often, because I know that it’s better to have nothing in my life in a certain area than to be doing something that I’m not interested in, I’ll clear the decks and I’ll see a Stick (subject) and it’ll interest me. I’ll pick it up and I’ll run with it for awhile, and then it’s no longer interesting to me. It’s no longer bringing me positive thoughts. So I’ll drop it. Then I’ll go on and pick the next Stick up. And so, would it be in my better interest to stick with that one Stick (subject) and work with letting go of negative thoughts?

“Clearing the Deck” Eliminates Your Launching Pad Abraham: Maybe, or to carry more sticks at the same time. In other words, a very fun and effective tool is, let’s say you are feeling unfulfilled about something, and so you imagine doing something different. And even though the idea of it isn’t a very strong idea, you still go with it just to see what it will give you. You just play it out: Pretend it either way. Pretend that you are doing it, and then pretend that you don’t do it. And often, out of that will be born another idea, or another idea, or another idea.

SPECIAL SUBJECTS TAPES — VOL II ...I AM A MEDICAL DOCTOR and have not, before, run across material that has this much potential to create health...Have enjoyed Abraham’s books and tapes beyond any expectations I had when my mother originally sent them. I would like to subscribe to your “Weekly Tape Program”. Thank You. CHRISTIANE NORTHRUP, MD.— ME

AB-12 PIVOTING & POSITIVE ASPECTS * — If I am the "Creator of my own experience", why don't I have more of what I want? Fostered by an action oriented world, most of you do not understand your true nature of attraction, thus the confusion in why you are getting what you are getting. These processes of pivoting and the book of positive aspects will assist you in the self-discovery of what is important to you, and will put you in the strong, clear place of well-being, so that you can allow what you want into your experience. AB-13 SEXUALITY — Love, sensuality and the perfect sexual experience — pleasure vs. shame. This misunderstood issue lies at the heart of more disruption in the lives of physical beings than any other issue. Discover the true nature of your being, and release yourself from the negative turmoil that surrounds the subject of sexuality. AB-14 DEATH — Aging, deterioration and the perfect death experience — choices vs. chances. The gathering of years is a natural experience. However, deterioration of your physical body is neither natural nor necessary. Be healthy and productive and active and happy until the very day of your chosen re-emergence into the Nonphysical. AB-15 DOLLARS — Abundance, in perfect flow — gaining the freedom that dollars can bring vs. losing your freedom while gaining your dollars. As there is an abundance of the air you breathe, so there is an abundance of the dollars you seek. Listen and learn how to relax and breathe in the fresh air of freedom offered to you through the abundant flow of dollars. AB-16 HEALTH, WEIGHT & MIND — The perfect states of weight, health and mind — how can I get there and stay there? Diet plans abound and research continues and yet the number of those unsuccessful at maintenance of satisfactory bodily and mental conditions increases. Understand how your body functions and why you are as you are — and then begin your swift and steady progress toward that which you desire. AB-17 MATING — The perfect mate: getting, being, evoking one — Attracting vs. attacking. While it is your natural endeavor to co-create with others, there are few who have discovered the bliss of magnificent relationships. Find out how you can experience the joy of a perfect union. 32


SPECIAL SUBJECT TAPES — VOL II AB-18 PARENTING — Perfect harmony between my children and me — and me and my parents. Harmonizing vs. traumatizing. While often disconnected from parents, either by death or by distance, your parent/child relationships often have great influence in your experience with your children or with your current life experience. Learn how to perceive what has been in a way that is beneficial to your now rather than destructive. Let that which you have lived be of value. AB-19 CAREER — The perfect career. What, where and when is it — and what can I do about it now? With so many exterior standards or rules regarding the appropriateness of your behavior or choices — in most cases more confusion than clarity abounds. Use this process to discover and attract that which is perfect for you. Stop the futile backwards approach — and begin creating from the inside out. AB-20 SELF APPRECIATION — If I am so "Perfect as I am" — then why don't I feel better about me than I do? Selfishness vs. selflessness. Your awareness of your perfection was intact as you emerged into this physical body, but it was soon sabotaged by the critical, comparing, judgmental world that surrounded you. Rediscover your true sense of value and wellbeing and perfection. AB-21 INNER GUIDANCE — Tell me more about my Inner Voice? Because you have thought in terms of being dead or alive, you forget that you are, simultaneously, physically focused while another part of you remains focused from Nonphysical perspective. Once remembering that the inner you exists, you may begin to listen to what your Inner Voice is offering. Here is the process for re-establishing that important conscious connection.

Free 90 Minute Introduction To Abraham Tape A stimulating overview of Abraham’s basic message: How to consciously harmonize and interact with your pure, positive Inner Being...How to realize who you are and why you have chosen to be physical in this time...How to joyously and deliberately utilize the Laws of the Universe to Attract all that you are wanting to be or have or do....Also, Jerry & Esther summarize the process of their introduction to Abraham. This cassette is a comfortable means to share Abraham with those who seek a new way of realizing a successful life experience. (Order AB-1. * Include $5.00 Minimum S/H) ...Since receiving ABRAHAM’S Free Introductory Tape, I’ve listened to it 3 or 4 times. It is concise and very recreatable both in my life and in my work as a consultant...I wanted to thank you for so much value in this one small tape. I am impressed and moved...Enclosed is my first “real” order.—Texas 33


book: a new beginning I THIS EXTRAORDINARY BOOK is powerfully offered by a group of teachers who call themselves Abraham. They express clearly and simply the laws of the universe, explaining in detail how we can deliberately flow with these laws for the joyful creation of whatever we desire. Abraham describes this as the time of awakening, explaining that each of us chose, with very deliberate intent, this specific time of great change to participate in this physical experience. This is an empowering, life-changing book that will assist you in seeing your personal life experience as you have never seen it before. ...The breakthrough book that started a worldwide interest in Abraham. Now in it’s eighth printing, A New Beginning I explains in simple terms the eyeopening fundamentals of living a life of health, wealth and happiness. — Texas COMMENTS: • Thank you for a delightful book—A NEW BEGINNING I—a life changing book...a joyous do-it-yourself book...I have always known this was an “inside job”, but I’ve not known, before, how to communicate well with the “inside.” — Germany • We are thrilled with the data. Everyone we have sent the book to thinks it is the best book they have ever read. — California • The feedback I’ve gotten on the many ABRAHAM books that I have distributed has been phenomenal and it has come from all over the world. — California • The first edition of A NEW BEGINNING I sold out because readers love the practical ideas of Abraham. In the tradition of Jane Roberts, this refreshing new book reveals a unique blend of new-age thought with the Western desire for “more.” An inspiring self-help classic that gets results. Softcover. $15.00. 218 pages. ISBN 0-9621219-3-2. (To order, see page 29, or call 830 755-2299). 34


book: a new beginning II THIS IS AN UPLIFTING BOOK that strikes a chord with the very core of your being. Written by Abraham to assist you in understanding the absolute connection between your physical self and your inner self, Abraham puts this physical life experience into perspective as they explain and define who we really are and why we have come forth as physical beings. This book is filled with processes and examples to assist you in making a deliberate conscious connection with your own Inner Being, that you might find the awesome satisfaction with this physical life experience that can only come once this connection is made. ...Now in it’s seventh printing, A New Beginning II contains uplifting new material from Abraham including Law of Attraction, Law of Allowing, and the effective use of your Guidance System. Includes questions and answers from live workshops, affirmations, and powerful processes for increasing your ability to intentionally create WHATEVER you want. Incredible! A must read! — Texas COMMENTS: • Your book, A NEW BEGINNING II, has been my constant companion, now marked and circled on page after page...So—UP with the “Fairies of the Universe” and beautiful music and laughter! — France • ..I hugged the book; I couldn’t put it down for two days....You should see my metaphysical library—and of every book I have, this is the clearest! — Germany • Thank you so much for the book—it is the best yet. I like to open it at random and see what the good word is for the day. — California • Like the book before it, A NEW BEGINNING II is clear, practical, inspiring and empowering with more focus on how to realign with your Inner Being. The bottom line for Abraham-Hicks is to choose to feel good in every moment. From that base of joy you will naturally and easily create what you want for yourself and the world.

WORDS OF WISDOM FROM THE BROADER PERSPECTIVE THE MEASURE OF SUCCESS — “What is the criteria to measure my success in this physical realm? Is it the marks on the chart, the measure of money, or the one who dies with the most toys...? Who decides the measure of success?” And we say, the amount of joy you have allowed yourself to experience is the greatest indicator of your allowance of Energy and success. Whenever you selfishly want to feel good, you are the most extraordinary contributor to your time/space reality. Most think that if you were allowed to selfishly choose what you are wanting, that then you may choose things that would be detrimental to another. But, when you are so selfish that you reach only for what feels best to you — which means you hold yourself in concert with your Source Energy — you can only add to in a very powerful and positive way. When you are feeling the Energy of Source flowing through you, when you are demanding that you Set your own Tone and that you hold yourself always in allowance of Source Energy — Phoenix, AZ — 2/19/00 you are an enormous (successful) contributor.

PRESENTING A POWERFUL 365 DAY COURSE IN SPIRITUAL PRACTICALITY ments of my life — I simply carried, daily, a fresh, updated sheet of paper in my pocket. This works! The first sides of the pages are compilations from the best of the Abraham teachings. The second sides of the pages are designed to accommodate your daily list of things to do. But as the course progresses, you will discover that the pages will be offering processes and techniques to fit the advancing stages of your progression within these materials. Your only power to create your life is in this moment, and the Abraham-Hicks Planning Calendar is designed to focus the purest of your intentions to your todays, the time in which you have your creative power. In our estimation, this Abraham-Hicks Planning Calendar/Workbook is the most effective tool available for the practical application of “The Science of Deliberate Creation.” Utilize it to create and to teach others to create, the perfect (by your ever changing standards) adventure in living.

Habits are usually created slowly. And since a major aspect of the value to you of using this material will be the changing — often slowly — from unwanted habits of thought to habits of thought that are more appropriate to your current conscious desires — the most common use of this calendar will be as a joyous 365 day journey into a new world of leading edge thought and experience. Begin experiencing the power of this calendar at any time. You don’t have to wait until the first of next year. However, in order to get into time sequence with the calendar — it is best to start at a month’s beginning. Let the first day of your first month be day one (page three) of this calendar. After over 30 years of studying, teaching and enjoying the art of personal fulfillment, I have long understood the power of clarifying and writing out my decisions in appointment books, journals, organizers, etc. But as the years passed, I became aware that at the most joyous and highly productive seg-

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS things put together. As you try to legislate something that is so innate and so natural, all you do is get crossways of the inherent nature of your being. Now, we’re going to offer this delicately, but we also want to offer it bluntly: In the same way that you do not try to legislate sex among your beasts — we would not try to legislate it among your teenagers. They are as wild as beasts, and more powerful in their wanting.

Teen Daughter Is Leading the Sexual Revolution Guest: On one of your tapes, you mention that we’re headed into a sexual revolution. And I have a 13year old stepdaughter who is leading the pack. But I’m glad I heard you say that, because it gave me a whole new perspective. Instead of having all these fears and telling her, “You’re going to get AIDS and you’re going to get…” But I don’t understand. I want a new perspective on how I can best be with her in an accepting, supportive and non-judging way. Because it really does hit a few triggers, because I’m kind of practiced in a certain thought.

Guest: I think what I hear you saying is to just hold the notion, “All is well,” and I don’t know if that means ignore that, but just be in allowing state? It’s not so easy sometimes. Abraham: Well, we can give you something that will help you to release some of those former beliefs and concerns, and connect with one that comes forth deeper from within you. We’ve been talking about being extensions of Nonphysical Energy. And we say to you that the contrast, or the experience of your physical lifetime, is what puts the impulse within you that summons the Life Force. And can you not hear that more purely around the subject of sexuality than any other subject? Here you come forth into these environments that are established to produce within you desire, and then

Abraham: Well, the most important thing that we would say to you about that, is, do not try to be the arbitrator of something that is coming forth naturally from her. Don’t try to legislate something that is innate. It’s like trying to orchestrate breath. It’s like saying to people, “You are only allowed to have this many breaths a day, so don’t exercise or don’t move your body in any way.” It’s bigger than any legislation. It’s bigger than any manipulation that can come forth on a physical front, and it has been the basis of more consternation than almost all other 38


QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS you are saying, “Well, that desire, even though it is within me, must be set aside.” Physical beings have been working very hard to deprive themselves of the feeling of desire. There are many who ascribe to the philosophy that desire is the root of all evil. That if I want something, then I am uncontrollable. And so, there are many people that, in many different ways, are trying to get you to control, to control, to control. There is a better way: Rather than trying to control the desire by trying to pull the desire down — it is much better to get into vibrational alignment with the fullness of it. And so, think about the subject of rampant sexuality; (aside from the moral issues that the religions are offering about it being an inappropriate thing to do, when the entire basis of the Universe speaks to the contrary of that) let’s pick up the “Stick” that says “sexually transmitted disease,” and feel the discomfort of that. And then ask yourself, is that the only subject around sexuality? When I pick up that specific “Stick,” of course I would vibrate in a place of not wanting. But are not there many other aspects relative to the subject of sexuality that cause me to vibrate in a better feeling place? You, personally, must come into vibrational harmony with the idea of Well-being around the subject.

And so, out here in this sea of contrast — where all things are possible — if you want to get into that place of guardedness, there are unlimited things that you can worry about. There are many people who make their living and their livelihood by finding things that you might be guarded about and getting you all worried about them so that they can help you soothe them.

The Sexual Drive Is A Spiritual Desire But the truth of it is: Well-being is the order of the day. And the rampant sexuality that is the basis of your physical universe is a very good thing. It is the survival of your species. It is the ongoing of the species. It’s what keeps providing the environment of contrast that keeps taking thought beyond that which it has been before. It is difficult for us to understand how you ever got so crossways of this natural inherent sexual desire that is born within you. It is a spiritual desire that comes forth. You can legislate it, you can orchestrate it, you can make all kinds of rules and laws about it, and the desire will still triumph. And all your population will do is find greater and greater ways to be deceptive — as they are satisfying this one very inherent desire that is within them. And so, we’re not great encouragers, you are discovering, of repressing any desire. Your desires are very natural. We are encouraging you to find 39


QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS that. And even if you did stand a chance, and could find a way of orchestrating their behavior so that you could deprive them of their natural desires, you would not want to. What you are wanting to do is be a catalyst to assist the young ones in recognizing their own Guidance System. You’re wanting to help them recognize that Well-being is the order of their life experience. As you look at anyone and you anticipate wonderful things for them, and as you pick up the “Stick” that makes you feel fearful about them, and you put it down and reach for another, and reach for another, and reach for another, until you are solid on the ground of knowing the absolute Well-being of this one, and you hold them as your object of attention, and you know that all is well for them, and you let them know that you trust them, that you trust their Guidance System, that you know that they have the ability to guide their life in a way that would surprise and delight them and please them — and bring them success on all levels — then you have given them a true gift of connection. Your powerful life is in your now. Right now. And the way you feel now is everything. There is great love here for you. Now. We are complete.

ways to find vibrational alignment with the desire. So we would be talking in terms of Well-being. We would be talking in terms of a Guidance System that is alive and well. You cannot feel a desire and be in vibrational harmony with it and at the same time be doing yourself in. But, sometimes, what happens, the teenagers, or anyone, for that matter, who doesn’t know about Energy flow, they don’t know about emotions, they don’t know what their emotions are telling them, they’re out there holding themselves in vibrational harmony with things that don’t feel good. So they’re pinching off their Life Force until they can hardly breathe. And then they’re taking drugs and doing all kinds of things so that they can numb themselves out so that they cannot feel the discomfort of being disconnected from their Source Energy. And in that place of disconnection, in that place of separation from their Guidance System, of course all kinds of things are going to happen… that they do not want but that they are in vibrational harmony with. As a mother, or a mentor, or as a teacher, you are not wanting to orchestrate the things that they choose as desires. For heavens sakes, you can’t orchestrate something that is a desire that is a born wanting. You don’t stand a chance in any of

ABRAHAM’S GREATEST HITS It seems that at the end of every Abraham Seminar we all agree: “That was the best one yet!” This Burlingame, CA (San Francisco) group seemed to evoke extraordinary wisdom and clarity from Abraham. Abraham commented that this was truly co-creation at its very best. We are so appreciative of the wonderful people who bring to these seminars the details of what they are living and assist Abraham in taking thought beyond that which it has been before.

sometimes, without meaning to, you can get focused upon a piece of something that somebody has manifested in their “art of resistance,” and as you focus upon it, and as you achieve vibrational harmony with it, you include it in your vibration, as well, and now you, too, are practicing resistance. How is that so? Because everything is about attraction.

those things not wanted?” That’s right. You have to be able to see things not wanted. How would you know what is wanted without your awareness of what is not wanted?

Every Stick Has Two Opposite Ends Every subject is two subjects. It’s like a stick with two ends on it. On one end is what is wanted and on the other end is that which is not wanted. So when you pick up the stick that says wellness, you’re also picking up the stick that says lack of wellness. When you pick up the stick that says abundance, you’re also picking up the stick that says lack of abundance. Every possibility has two ends. “So how do I be in the place of allowing, when I pick up the stick that says abundance? How do I keep from picking up the other end of it that says, not enough?” And we say, that’s where your Guidance System comes in. You can tell by the way you feel whether your propensity for vibration on a topic is one of resistance or one of allowing. When you pick up the stick that says abundance, do you feel confident? Do you feel free? Do you feel glorious? Do you feel exhilarated? Or when you pick up the stick that says money, do you feel restriction? Do you feel shortage? Do you feel worried? Do you feel fear? Do you feel anger? What is the feeling that you

Your Attention To It Includes It When you look at something that you want and you give your attention to it — by your attention to it you include it in your vibration. As you say yes to it, you include this thing that you want in your vibration. But when you see something that you do not want, and you shout no at it — by your attention to it you include it in your vibration. In this Vibrational Universe, there is no such thing as no. Everything is yes. So when you see something wanted, it is yes. When you see something not wanted, it is yes. It is by your very objective nature, as you weigh the pros and the cons and the pluses and the minuses, that you keep including things that you don’t want in your experience. “But Abraham, isn’t that a logical thing? I thought you said that I’m here to examine the content of the Universe, and that out of this sea of contrast will be born rockets of desire? So how can I help but see

naturally are. Now take hold of that cork and hold it under the water. That’s what negative emotion is. But, as soon as you let go of the cork, it floats right back to the surface. And so, we’re not here to teach you to raise your vibration, because your vibration is naturally raised. We’re here to help distract you from the lower vibration. Jesus said, turn the other cheek, and that’s exactly what he was talking about. Turn your attention from what holds your vibration in a lower place, and your vibration will naturally raise.

Are You Selfish Enough To Feel Good? With much less effort than you have ever thought before, you can learn to bring yourself into vibrational harmony with Well-being at all times. But there’s one thing that you have to decide before any of it will begin to make sense, or before anything that we are going to teach you here today will be able to be applied by you: You must be selfish enough that you are willing to feel good. You have to reach the place where you say, “Nothing matters more to me than that I feel good.” Because until you are willing to actively work at feeling good, you’re not going to know when you don’t. Until you deliberately reach for the conscious feeling of the higher vibration, you won’t be able to recognize the lower vibration.

Nothing Matters More than that I Feel Good

Meditation, the Practice of Allowing Well-Being Many teachers, we are among them, teach meditation, because meditation, when you achieve it effectively, means you distract yourself from the physical stuff. It’s like a withdrawal of consciousness when you are still awake. When you are asleep you withdraw consciousness too. But when you slumber and withdraw consciousness, your consciousness is not consciously aware of what it feels like to be in that higher vibration. But when you are awake and in a state of meditation, now you are consciously aware of what it feels like to be in that higher vibration. Which means, you will be more aware when your vibration dips.

You and the Cork are Naturally Buoyant Imagine a cork bobbing up here on the surface of the water. On the surface of the water is where your natural vibration is: high, fast, pure. It all means the same. High, because there’s no resistance, fast, because there’s no resistance, pure, because there’s no resistance. That’s who you

it is bright. We would close our eyes. We would put ourselves in a place where there is not much sound. We really would not even play music. Some people play music, but even that can be distracting in nature. Something like the ticking of a clock, or the dripping of a faucet, or the trickling of a waterfall, something of that nature can be very soothing. And some music falls into that same category. But it must be something that does not stimulate thought. And we would focus inward, even on our breathing. We would be consciously aware of air in, and we would be consciously aware of air out. We would concentrate on long breaths in, and we would concentrate on long breaths out. We would breathe air in, and when we thought it was all our lungs would hold, we would bring still more in. And when we think it is still all our lungs could hold we would breathe more air in. And then, at a place of full expansion of lungs, we would take a long, slow, delicious time to let the air out. And our intention would be nothing more than being in this moment, and being consciously aware of breathing. We would let it be our fullest responsibility. Not fixing breakfast, not combing hair, not wondering how someone is doing, not thinking about yesterday, not worrying about tomorrow, not focusing on anything in this moment except air in, and air out.

Sometimes people say, “Abraham, is it normal for all hell to break loose in someone’s life when they begin the meditation process?” And we say, yes, because what happens is you are bringing yourself to a place of heightened sensitivity, so that formerly achieved patterns of lower vibration are less comfortable to you. There are other ways than meditation: Appreciation, a rampage of appreciation raises vibration. Listening to music that makes your heart sing raises vibration. Petting your cat raises vibration, or sitting and watching the river go by... Often you are in your highest states of connection to Source Energy while you are driving. It is the reason that there are fewer traffic accidents, because you are, as a mass consciousness, often more connected when you are driving. Something about the rhythm of the road, or the lack of something to focus upon. Here is the process of meditation that if we were in your physical places we would utilize: Every day for 10 or 15 minutes, and not for much more than that, we would sit quietly by ourselves somewhere. Maybe under a tree, maybe in our car, maybe in the bathroom, someplace where we would not be interrupted. We would do our best to shut down our physical senses. In other words, we would draw the curtains if

You’ll feel better in the moment. You’ll feel more energized when you come out of it. You may spend 14 minutes before you achieve any state of detachment. You might not ever be consciously aware that you’ve achieved any state of detachment. It doesn’t matter, you are making enormous progress as you allow yourself to be. A big benefit that you’ll notice, right away, is that things that you’ve been wanting will begin showing up. “Now, why is this? Abraham, I didn’t sit and intend. I didn’t sit and set goals. I didn’t sit and clarify what I want. I didn’t tell the Universe what I wanted. How come 15 minutes of just being will set those kinds of things in motion?” Because it has always been, ask and it is given. It has never been “ask and do something right and it is given”. It has never been “ask and get worthy”. It is ask and allow. Ask and allow. And so, every day, you’ve been asking. You’ve been launching all kinds of intentions. You cannot live in your physical body, you cannot be part of this physical environment without endless desires being born within you. And as these desires are being born within you, the Universe is answering

Now, during this process, within 2 or 3 days of doing it, you’re going to begin to feel a detachment from your physical experience. A very common thing that you will feel is a sort of numbing sensation. Some describe that they cannot tell their toe from their nose. Some, if their eyes are closed, and we recommend that, may begin to see movement of light around under their eyelids, or even flashes of color. There is no right or wrong in this process of meditation. There is nothing that you should be reaching for. This is a state of allowing. This is a state where, for just a few moments, you stop running the show. You stop trying to make anything happen. This is your time of allowing. This is your time when you are saying unto your maker, unto your Source Energy, unto your Inner Being, unto your God... whatever you’re wanting to call it, this is your time of saying, “Here I be, in a state of allowing.” And what am I allowing? I’m allowing Source Energy to flow purely through me. 15 minutes a day of that effort will change your life. Because it will put you in the state of allowing the Energy that is natural to you to flow.

“Ask and it is given.” Not, ask and get worthy... It is Ask and it is given. Ask and Allow

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Continued from page 31

And now, Esther is thinking, I’m going to take this little cat to Texas, if all goes well. And then they take a walk and the little cat follows them, and they spend time with the cat. Then they close the door and get ready for bed. About that time, someone knocks on the door, and it is the same woman, now holding the cat. She is saying to them, “I really wish you would take this cat.” And Esther is thinking, I don’t know how this is going to work out. And she says, “We’ll let you know in the morning, we need to talk about it.” Now Esther does not want to talk about it, because she does not want to get the no answer too soon. She is enjoying the fantasy of this. And so, she goes to bed, and she cannot sleep. And then she plays the game: We have taken the cat to Texas. And then she plays the game: We have not taken the cat to Texas. And it doesn’t seem to matter which way she goes. She cannot find her place within it, because she is not wanting to displease Jerry. It’s not that important to her. And the she stumbled across the thought, I have met hundreds of cats and I’ve never met a cat like this.She could feel herself really wanting the cat. And so, in the middle of the night she awakened, and Jerry was awake, struggling with the same dilemma about the cat. Because it is not a cat they will travel with in the motor coach, it really is a cat they will just take back for their staff to tend to.

How Jerry & Esther Attracted Lovable Cat The other day Jerry and Esther were in Louisiana. It was the last night that they would be on the road before they would be back in their bed in Texas. And Esther looked out the motor coach window as Jerry was checking the air in the tires, and there was a little cat rubbing up against his legs, and Esther could hear Jerry talking to the little cat. And Esther could hear a new relationship already developing. And then Esther looked out of the door and saw this adorable little cat, it has no tail, it was born with no tail. It was so alive and eager and in love with life — and Esther, immediately, before she even touched it, fell in love with it. And so, then Esther said what she has said many, many times about many, many beasts: “Would you like to come to Texas and live with me?” At which point Jerry always says, “Oh, no, you know what our agreement is.” But this time, Jerry did not say, “Oh, no!” And so, Esther got her foot in that door really, really fast. And then, Esther saw Jerry going off to the office of the RV park, and she followed him in and heard him asking the woman, there, who the little cat belonged to. And the woman said, “I don’t know, it showed up with someone, it has been here for awhile. There’s another one sort of like it...” She said, “I wish you would take this cat home with you.” And Jerry laughed saying nothing more. 47


QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS And so, Esther said, “Well, what do you think about this?: If we wake up in the morning and the little cat is nowhere around, we will leave it, and that will be the end of it. But if we wake up in the morning and the little cat is on our doorstep, then we will take it as a sign that the little cat wants to go, and that the Universe has orchestrated it, and we’ll take the little cat.” And with that, Esther slept like a baby. Now, this didn’t come easily. This was over a period of many hours of considering and contemplating. The desire wasn’t that great in the beginning, it was sort of a game. But the more Esther thought about it, the more Jerry thought about it — the stronger the intentions got. The intention of the cat is in on it, too. There are lots of dynamics, from far before they met the cat, that are all in motion around this. So, in the morning they awakened and there’s no cat anywhere. And Esther said, “I think I will go (Here Kitty, Kitty) take the garbage out, (Here Kitty, Kitty)” teasing with Jerry. And Jerry is laughing, saying, “Now remember, that is not our deal.” And Esther said, “I would not do that, I was just kidding.” And so, Jerry was out pulling in the hoses, and unplugging things, and Esther was, in her mind, saying “Here Kitty, Kitty,” and there was no cat anywhere to be seen, even though there’d been many cats around the day before. Not a cat anywhere in sight.

And so, now they are ready to go, and Esther was in the driver’s seat, and she buckled her seat belt, and she said, “Well, I guess that is that.” And she started the engine. And as the engine was roaring, across the grass came bounding the little cat. Here she was, coming right to their motor home! Jerry opened the door and said, “Well, little cat, it looks like you’re going to San Antonio.” And the little cat said, “Yes I am,” as she bounded inside. Any thought that you begin with is only what it is. But the more attention you give to it, and the more you play it against other things... this is the way you hone an idea. This is the pleasure of creating. Now this seemed like a very fast manifestation, but you would have to understand the whole of this story. This was a very long creation in the making. This was a very specific cat that came in response to a very specific vibration. And both Jerry and Esther recognized that it was something out of the ordinary as it was unfolding. Enough so that neither one of them were willing to just close the door on it and say “no,” even though that had been the pattern. There was something there worth sniffing out. And the more they sniffed, the bigger it got. And the bigger it got, the more they sniffed, and the more they sniffed, the bigger it got, the bigger it got, and the better it felt. And the better it felt, the better it felt, the better it felt — until the manifestation was powerful and exhilarating. 48


QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS subject called cat. And then, over time, they just learn never to pick that Stick up — because it’s not good for their relationship. But Esther didn’t push it. Actually, she attracted the cat into her life in the same way that she attracted Jerry into her life. She just sort of kidded him in. She sang songs to him like, “I’d be surprisingly good for you...” until he caught onto the melody. Just start somewhere, wherever you are, and reach for the thought that feels good, and reach for the thought that feels good, and reach for the thought that feels good, until, before you know it, you’re surrounded by delicious thoughts that you are constantly molding together. That’s what this individual or even collective creating is about. Once you get the hang of it, you take the thought and then you hold the thought for the pleasure of the thought. And the thought will expand. We promise you, it will expand. It cannot not. If you hold a thought for as little as 17 seconds, it must become more. Law of attraction says it must become more. If you get really positive about something, it will grow into something that you are wanting. If you get really negative about it, it will grow into something you really don’t want — which will give a rocket of desire of what you do what.

When Your Partner is Wanting Something Different? Guest: I have a question around when there’s a partner involved who may want something different...? Abraham: That’s what this story was about for you. In other words, Jerry has made decisions long ago, no pets. They don’t fit. Can’t take them with you, you can’t leave them home. He has had beloved beasts in his life, before, that made their transition and broke his heart. He had strong determination about that. Esther loves the beasts, but not more than loving Jerry’s satisfaction with how things are. And so, it never was very important to Esther. Esther was sort of setting her desire aside, not painfully. There’s always a big dilemma. If I want this and you want that, how do we come together? And we say, hold the idea, softly, with no resistance — until the Universe delivers the circumstances and events that make it compatible for all. Through these years, Esther and Jerry have attracted two adorable cats now. Party Cat was born in their garage, and then just sort of started showing up at parties, and then became Permanent Cat. But if Esther had, every day, said, “Well if you really love me, you would let me have a cat,” which would cause Jerry to remind her of what the agreement was, then they would just be these two resistant beings that are having a pretty good life except relative to the

them. And now, because of your 15 minutes of allowing, whether you were petting the cat, or practicing your breathing, whether you were listening to a waterfall or listening to happy music, or whether you were on a rampage of appreciation... what happened, for that time of allowing, is, you set up within your vibrational auric field a vibration that, for the time, was not in the state of resisting the things that you’ve been asking for. And progress is made in that time.

again so that you will be aware, probably for the first time in your life, of what you’re doing with Energy. And that means everything. What you’re doing with Energy is what you do. You do everything with Energy. You are Energy flowing beings. Everything that happens to you and everything that happens to everyone you know, happens because of the Energy that you are summoning and allowing, or not allowing. Everything is about that relationship with Energy. Everyone you know who is having every experience that you know is having it because of the focused desire that their life has brought to them, and the state of allowing or resistance that they are in at any moment.

Everything that happens to you is created by the Energy you are Summoning and Allowing (or not).

Bring Your Guidance System Alive Again “Well, Abraham, if I’ve been really negative for 50 years, is it going to take me 50 years to turn it around?” 15 minutes ought to do it. “In 15 minutes I can undo all of the disallowing that I’ve learned to do?” In 15 minutes you can allow, you don’t have to undo anything. “Well, what if I’ve really developed habits of negativity? Is 15 minutes going to change that?” Probably not. But the next time you go to one of those negative thoughts, you’re going to be more aware of it. Your Guidance System is going to say, “Hey!” You’re going to feel your state of resistance in a keener way. Your Guidance System is going to be brought alive

You Could Release any Deadly Disease, Now You could have every deadly disease known to man, and some they haven’t even figured out yet, you could have them all in your body right now — and tomorrow they could all be gone, if from one day to the next you learned how to allow the Energy to flow.

that you’ve been wanting. They’re just leaning on the door, just waiting for you to open it. They’ve been there from the first moment you asked for them: Your lovers, your perfect mates, your perfect bodies, your perfect bodily conditions, all of the money that you could ever imagine ... all things that you’ve ever wanted. Things little and big. Things that you would call extraordinary and significant, and things that you would call not very significant. Everything that you have ever identified that you wanted is lined up right outside that door. And in the moment that you open the door, all things wanted flow to you. And, then we will hold a seminar on how to deal with the manifestations, with all this stuff that is flowing in. One of the most significant things that we are wanting you to realize is that you are not here about the manifestations. You are here about the feeling of Energy flowing through you. You are here to give birth to the desire. It is the desire that is alive within you that is everything. It is the desire that is alive within you that we are all about. But the manifestations are fun, too, aren’t they?

that I feel good. And I’m going to find ways today. 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’m going to look for opportunities to appreciate, so that all day long I’ll bring myself back into Source Energy. “If there’s an opportunity to praise, I’m going to praise. If there’s 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 ‘til that feeling goes away.” Within 30 days of mild effort, you can go from 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 at the amount of manifestations that begin to occur in your physical experience.

G-1/8/00 — Here’s how your cycle of creation works. About the “other 99%” of her brain? Did she cocreate in her dog’s death? He lives unwanted circular patterns of relationships.

Every death experience is a perfect one. Aerial view of good stuff, bad stuff. G-1/15/00 — Would worldwide unity bring heaven on earth? Many, in battle, are feeling heaven, too. Answers seemed to magically appear to him. Our deliberate effect on the cultural consciousness? Co-creating her great house without his cooperation?

Her one year child is “having shakes”. If sculptor manifested only one specific desire? How much of this lifetime was preordained? G-7/31/99 — Your point of power is right now. You are creating from the inside out. Writing a will to protect her child. Digging up and evaluating unwanted childhood experiences. After 20 years of attracting unavailable men. She fears going back to not knowing. What did her clutter control class accomplish? G-8/15/99 — Is it God’s will or free will? How can she trust her metaphysical thoughts?

Co-Creation ❥ Co-Creation to the world that I did it! That I had made my $5,000 in time! And I got deliriously excited about it. I visualized and felt how joyous I would be when I actually had the $5,000 invested by the deadline. The “belief” was NOT there. The “wanting” WAS there. Within the next two weeks I got a job based on commission and I succeeded in getting the $5,000 in time for the investment. This may not seem very extraordinary to a lot of people. To me, at the time, and still, it was one of the most extraordinary things I had ever done. I did exactly what Abraham said for me to do. I got terrifically excited about getting something I really and truly wanted to have and visualized distinctly and clearly getting it. And it worked. Not only did I get what I wanted... I also could clearly see how my previous habits of thinking and emotions had gotten me into my position of poverty. I’ve never before experienced any teaching so simply powerful as these. They sing to my heart. They are the most powerful tool I have ever grasped. Thank you so much Esther for the awesome power I felt in your voice that night in the van... thank you so much Jerry and Abraham... I’ve never felt so much confidence and control in my life... Thank you. SK — NV

My Story With Abraham Eighteen months ago, half asleep in a van in the wee hours of the morning someone in the front seat put in a tape, and I heard this woman’s voice. I was instantly connected. I knew nothing of her. All I knew was that the words she was saying and the way she was saying them gave me the knowing that she knew what she was talking about... I had never heard so much unequivocal power in a voice... one of absolute authority and power. What she was saying was in pure alignment with my inner convictions, and she was articulating them so surely and powerfully. At the tape’s end I went immediately forward and inquired about the tape and made arrangements for a copy of “The Law of Attraction.” I was without a job and had no income of any kind. And I wanted, almost desperately, to come up with $5,000 in the next three months for an investment opportunity. My friend gave me two tapes, “The Law of Attraction” and “Dollars and Prosperity”. After a week of immersing my mind into these tapes I did what they told me to do. I got in my car and parked in the outskirts of a parking lot and did a workshop in my car. I envisioned myself hiking up my favorite mountainside and shouting 54


ABOUT THE AUTHORS EXCITED ABOUT THE CLARITY and practicality of the translated word from ABRAHAM, Jerry and Esther Hicks began, in 1986, disclosing their ABRAHAM experience to a handful of close business associates. Then, recognizing the practical results being received by those persons who began plying ABRAHAM with meaningful personal questions regarding their finances, bodily conditions, and relaEsther & Jerry Hicks tionships...the Hickses made a conscious decision to allow ABRAHAM’S teachings to become available to an ever widening circle of seekers. And that circle continues to expand — even as you read this page. Jerry and Esther have now published more than 500 Abraham-Hicks books, cassettes and videos, and have been presenting open group interactive workshops in about 50 cities a year to those who gather to participate in this progressive stream of thought. Although worldwide attention has been given by leading edge thinkers to this Science of Deliberate Creation who, in turn, incorporate many of ABRAHAM’S concepts into their books, lectures, sermons, screenplays and scripts, the primary spread of this material has been from person to person — as individuals begin to discover the value of these materials in their practical, personal experience. ABRAHAM, a group of obviously evolved teachers, speak their broader Nonphysical perspective through the physical apparatus of Esther. Speaking to our level of comprehension, from their present moment to our now, through a series of loving, allowing, brilliant yet comprehensively simple, recordings in print and in sound — they guide us to a clear connection with our Inner Being — they guide us to self-upliftment from our total self. COMMENTS FROM READERS & LISTENERS: ...It’s hard to believe that life could be so simple and so joyous and that it could take me so many years to find out how to do it...So, thank you, so much, for making an already good life even better! (With lots of good feelings) SC — PA ...I’ve been a “searcher,” “seeker,” “sharer” since I was a teen. My middle name was purported to be “Why?” The information from Abraham is so down-to-earth, useful, compelling, exciting, sensible, practical, empowering, clear, usable. I’m a marvelous deliberate creator now. Thanks for putting the “fun” back into physical life. JS — AZ ...Am so delighted to be reading your books, listening to your tapes, attending your seminars and talking to each of you on the phone. I am so happy and getting happier and clearer every day. My life has been leading to this point, and it feels like the icing on the cake. I know everything will just get better, although it’s hard to know how. What a powerful gift you’ve given us — the recognition of our ability to create the life we want, and the tools to carry out the plan. Thank you for sharing. — CA

Your Powerful, Important Now You didn’t come forth to get things done that are undone. You came forth for the opportunity to allow Pure Positive Energy to flow through you. If there is anything that we have wanted to convey to you, it is that you never get it done — and that where you stand is a wonderful place. Sometimes it doesn’t feel so wonderful to you when you’re in that part of the contrast that is still giving birth to the desire. But if you could quickly give your attention to the desire that has been born — and then relax and feel appreciation for the circumstances that have given birth to this nugget of desire — your resistance would fall away in this moment. And the Energy that creates worlds would pour through you. You would feel as dynamic and passionate and eager as you did when you first made the decision to come forth into this physical body. You are Energy flowing beings, and yes, we know you like the experience of the exposure to the physical stuff of this time/space reality. And so, just for the next thirty days, whenever you are in a moment of perceiving, let your dominant intent be to find the thought that feels best. Say to yourself, again and again, “Today, no matter where I am, no matter where I am going, no matter who I am with, no matter what I am doing — it is my dominant intent to look for that which I am wanting to see. To look for that that which feels good. I’m wanting to find reason to allow the Energy that creates worlds to flow through me, now. Right now. I’m allowing or disallowing, right now. “All of my power is right now. What visions am I using that are allowing the Energy flow? What visions don’t let it flow? What memories are allowing it flow? What memories are not letting it flow? What conversations, what topics don’t let it flow for me, and what topics do let it flow for me? “I have this powerful moment of selective sifting, where if I choose the thought that lets the Energy flow, then all things that I’ve told the Universe that I want — from my moment of stepping forth into this body — I am now allowing to flow. Oh, what a powerful and important moment this is!” You are fulfilling your reason for coming, as the contrast gives birth to desire. We are appreciating the contrast that you chew on and the new ideas that you give birth to, and we take great pleasure in exploring each of your new ideas with (or without) you. Your pleasure is our pleasure. We never go with you in your pain. We think that it is time for you to begin allowing yourself the pleasure of your own creation. All-That-Is benefits. We want you to realize the benefit, in your now, of consciously experiencing the process of creation. Excerpted from Abraham-Hicks Workshop — G-3/14/00 — Monterey, CA
