Hello from Jerry & Esther with our enthusiastic Workshop guests, came together to cocreate a delightfully memorable event. (We do appreciate each person who added to that joyfully fulfilling experience.) ...We are continually aware of your generosity as is evidenced by the large numbers of you who gift your loved ones with the Abraham-Hicks materials. (I never cease to feel appreciation for the degree of this life enhancing information that you are gifting to others.) ...The sets of 5 Workshop tapes (as is) are now available to the workshop participants for $20 when ordered while at the event — or available at $50 to anyone who orders later. (We may clean some of the glitches, etc. — time permitting.) ...A number of our books are in the process of being published by international publishers. Contracts are signed, or pending, for Korean, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Dutch, Spanish... (Sara I is now available in the Netherlands.) ...We are always open to ideas and talent to expand the availability, facilitation and value of our Web site. All of our past Quarterly Journals have now been posted. (What’s up with our Search Engine? What would you — or could you — do to enhance it?) ...An increasing number of publications utilize the Abraham-Hicks materials, but their bibliographies, footnotes, references, etc., don’t always clearly direct the readers to the source material. (If you make us aware of such conditions, we will be pleased to send suggested guidelines to the author or publisher to consider inserting in any future printings or publications. ...We have currently scheduled 50 workshops for 2001 (leaving more hours open for inspired action) and we are most eager to drive into another year of thought provoking interaction with the thousands of you who will be cocreating with us throughout this life experience. (Relationships are forever.) Happy Trails to All of Us! Our love,
... Wow! What a wonderful year this has been! December 16, on this fabulous Kaanapali beach on Maui, Hawaii, marked our 60th Abraham-Hicks Workshop presentation for the year 2000/ (This has been a year of pleasantly adventurous experiences.) ...Our “Monster Bus”, as Abraham calls our 40 foot long American Eagle Motor Coach, has, as was intended, faithfully carried us to within 200 miles of 95% of the population of the USA (It was a joy to visit with so many thousands of you in person.) ...On Continental’s In-Flight magazine’s improvement suggestions card I wrote: “Gordon, we are ‘Platinum Elite’ members, and have never experienced a more perfect trip: From Allen, at the San Antonio curbside checkin, through boarding, seating, departure, flight personnel, meal service, baggage handling, etc. and including, especially, Troy, our flight attendant... You must be proud to have a man of is demeanor representing your airlines.” (It feels so good to genuinely point out positive aspects.) ...We will do the exceptionally delicious Orchid Hotel, again, (in 2002) on the Kona coast of Hawaii — In combination with our dear friends, there, that event was a highlight of this lifetime. (Esther still notes that she has never seen me happier.) ...Appreciation Day and the San Antonio Fall Event, too, was a blast! Our building contractor, Mike, and his crew, our landscape contractor, Floyd, and his crew, the staff of food caterers from Pappasitos, the Kerrville Bus Company driver, Karl, the elegant Westin Hotel and our San Antonio staff, in concert

You, the Visionary Law of Attraction, the Manager Are you knowing that you are the creator of your experience? Is that a good thing? Have you noticed that there is a continual new desire within you? Are you beginning to understand that the desire that is focused within you is the most natural thing in all of the Universe? Are you beginning to understand that the desire that continually focuses within you is the natural consequence of the contrast in which you are so dramatically, emphatically, and precisely focused? You are focusing mechanisms and your ability to perceive within the framework of the variety that is around you causes continual focus, or desire, to be born within you. The entire Universe is established to help you — a creator out here on this leading edge of thought — assume your new stance or conclusion or determination or decision or idea, or desire. Desires are born within you, constantly, whether you verbalize them, or not. You are focusing mechanisms creators out here on the leading edge of thought, in this natural environment where you synthesize data and conclude. We are here to assist you, if it is your desire, in helping you to find vibrational harmony with the desire that is flowing
through you. And, it is your work to allow the desire that has been concluded by your process. We have been calling this gathering, “The Science of Deliberate Creation,” for it is a wonderful thing when you are standing in a place of deliberate focus. But we think a very important subtitle for this gathering would be “The Art of Allowing.” Because unless you have learned how to bring yourself into vibrational harmony with the Energy that you are pulling through you, (under the title of “desire”) then you stand in a place of resistance. Desire is a natural thing. When desire is born within you, and you are blocking or resisting or not allowing the desire that is flowing through you — that is what resistance is. When you learn to allow the Energy, that is being summoned through you by the power of your desire, to flow in a non-resisted manner — that is creation at its best. That is fulfilling your reason for being. That is living, as the extension of Nonphysical Energy that is you, out here on this leading edge of thought — allowing the Energy that creates worlds to flow through you. What confuses most people about this is that you have not learned to be dis-
DESIRE is natural. The Unvierse is established to help you give birth to Desire.
unto itself is drawn) says you can’t. The harder you push against something, the more you vibrate in harmony with it, and the more you vibrate in harmony with it, the more Law of Attraction yields it to you. Not because you’re bad, but because you are vibrating mechanisms that are saying “yes” to things you do not want. Your work as an allower, is to get happy and stay there. The Universe knows exactly what you want. And because you are blessed, worthy beings, this benevolent Universe is yielding to you, constantly, all this good stuff.
criminating in that which you are giving your attention to. When you see something that you want, and you say, “Yes yes, more of that,” what’s actually happening, not by your yessing but by your attention to it, you are including that vibration in your mix, which means, when Law of Attraction acts upon that — you are going to get more of this that you are saying “yes” to. But when you see those things that you do not want and you shout “no” at them — because this is a Universe that is based upon attraction, and there’s no such thing as exclusion — when you say “no” to something it’s really the same as saying “yes” to it. Yes means yes, and no means yes. Whatever you give your attention to means yes.
Your Mission: Get Happy and Stay There
Well-Being is Natural to You You are magnificent beings in this perfect time/space reality, and we are wanting to assist you in finding fewer and fewer excuses to disallow the Well-being that would be there otherwise. We are wanting you to realize that Well-being is your legacy. Well-being was your plan. Well-being is what is natural to you. And anything less than absolute Well-being, which means anything less than passion, anything less than clarity, anything less than eagerness, anything less than exhilaration, anything less than perfect vitality and physical Well-being, anything less than abundance and prosperity relative to all things that you desire, anything less than that means only one thing: you’ve picked up some habits of thought — that you are holding as beliefs — that are pinching off the Well-being that would be there otherwise.
Don’t Put It On Your Plate What we are wanting you to begin to recognize is that there are differenct ways to evaluate contrast. There is that light way of making choices, like you do at a smorgasbord of food: “I will have some of that, and I will have some of this, and I will have some of this,” where you don’t get all upset about the stuff you don’t want on your plate — you just accept that you don’t have to put it on your plate. But in the smorgasbord of life, most of you get all bent out of shape about those things you don’t want in your life, and so you offer a vibration of resistance, as if, if you could shout “no” loud enough, or push hard enough, you could keep those things out of your experience. And Law of Attraction (that which is like

ABRAHAM’S GREATEST HITS Our diverse group of guests, at this Philadelphia, PA workshop, presented Abraham with a series of provocative leading edge questions and observations that evoked form Abraham this latest mind-expanding edition of “Abraham’s Greatest Hits!” Wrapped around the concept of a “World Council Buffet of Personal Preferences” the perspectives of the issues dialogued, here, will take you on a cork-raising emotional roller coaster ride. And Esther and I are honored to be able to make this album available to you.

Considering World Council Buffet of Personal Preferences. To know when you’re letting it in. Ask: “Which of these thoughts feels better?” Is her boss wanting motion, or results? Cultural crabs in a “no win” barrel.? The vibrational range between pleasure and pain. No permanent, long term solution to physical problems.
• • • • • • •
To be selfish and not experience guilt? Have the Jews been “chosen for murder”? “God’s role” in our freedom to choose? She attempts to compare diverse religious philosophies. What if our dreams are really reality? Choose employer thoughts that feel the best. How can he deal with his road rage?
• • • • • • •
Anger is Guidance, therefore Anger is Good. When trying to be fair to everyone. To revive love affair with his wife? Your mate’s not responsible for your joy? Starved for loving sex with his wife. How can surviving child avoid “wheelchair at 20”? Wants to meditate to “float his cork”.

We want you to be able to recognize, from now on, when you are in the place of disallowing the natural Well-being. Because when you get that, then you become one who is looking for rampages of appreciation. You become one who is looking for positive aspects. And it’s a gradual thing, friends. Don’t beat up on yourself if you cannot go instantly from aggravation to joy. Or from a place of depression to exhilaration. Or from a place of confusion to clarity. Don’t ask yourself to do something that defies Law. We want to show you how to switch your vibration, little by little by little — by reaching for the thought that feels better from right where you now stand. You may be in the middle of something that has your attention, that has caused you to regurgitate feelings from a long time ago. And the vibration within you may be very far from the eagerness and clarity and abundance and Well-being that you want. In other words, you feel pretty rotten, right now, let’s say, and so, as you’re feeling really, really rotten, and some bright-eyed, shiny person comes in and says, “You know, you are the creator of your own reality,” you sort of want to just punch their lights out. You wish they would just go away, because you are vibrationally very different from where they are, and that’s the last thing that you can, or want to hear.
that I want, for heavens sakes! because I have decided to use this nitpicking thing as my excuse to hold myself in vibrational disharmony with all things that I consider to be good. I’m out of harmony with clarity. I’m out of harmony with good. I’m out of harmony with abundance. I’m out of harmony with wellness. I’m out of harmony with eagerness. I’m out of harmony with all things that I want. I’m in harmony with feeling rotten, and I hate it. But here I am.” That’s what you’re saying when you’re standing in that rotten feeling place. So, what do you do about it? Well, you can’t reach for a joyful thought because you do not have vibrational access to a joyful thought. It is as if there has never been a joyful thought in your head. That bright-eyed shiny person would like to get you to think a happy thought. They’re dangling them in front of you like carrots. To you they look like scum. In other words, you can’t see, through those eyes, in the way that they would like you to.
Look for Postive Aspects. And go on Rampages of Appreciation.
Moving Up Your Vibrational Range So, what does one do? Well, you stand right where you are, in this rotten feeling place, and you say, “Which thought feels best?” And in this rotten feeling place, you have a range of choices. And as you choose the first thought that feels best, not much will happen. You might not even realize that you feel that much better. But just by making the effort of choosing — from all these rotten choices — the thought that feels a little better than the other, just by
In Harmony With Disharmony When you feel rotten, you’re saying to the Universe, “Don’t yield me anything that I deserve, and don’t give me anything

! W E N G-SERIES TAPES — SUMMER, 2000
Law of Attraction, the Manager When you understand Law of Attraction, and you understand this extraordinary Manager, and you understand all the other players that are willing and capable of playing with you, and you accept that you are the Visionary, you are the one that lines it all up, then you understand that you’re the architect, you’re not the mason, you’re not the carpenter, you’re not the plumber. You are the architect. You are the designer. And so, as you design it, mentally, and you allow the Universe to bring all of the other players, who play their important roles, into the whole of the co-creational mix, then the Energy flows through you. But when you try to play a role that is not consistent with who you are, then things sort of get out of whack a little bit. You could play any role, as long as you’re having fun while you play it. It does not matter what role you play, as long as you’re having fun while you play it. But when you try to play all the roles, you get overwhelmed. There is extraordinary leverage in Energy. A ten minute visualization will do so much more for you than thousands of hours of effort and work. But you have to practice that, in order to help yourself remember that that is true. (Excerpted from Abraham-Hicks Workshop — St. Louis, MO — 7/18/00)
G-5/20/00 — Your work: get happy and stay there. Reluctant boss seeks feelings of freedom. Went from terrifying dreams to refreshing mornings. Will these best friends meet after death?

He has concerns about nature of abundance. Your world is awash in abundance. Flowing with the current of Universal Currency. She wants to croak, asleep and healthy. Can onlookers positively influence deathbed transition? Your vibrational card gives access to what?
G-series tapes SUMMER, 2000 G-5/30/00 — “Stamp Out Cancer” posters disturb her equanimity. Child’s natural selfishness is a good thing. Should we not be disturbed by unwanted? Does the Nonphysical enjoy our physical humor? Enjoying self, “but what is getting done?” Concerned about her teen daughter’s driving disability. Is addiction as destructive as the label? G-6/10/00 — Helping them rediscover their natural Well-being. Will my freedom create chaos for others? Can you believe in the law of gravity? It’s time to love your worthy Self. You only want anything because it feels good. What are Jerry and Esther’s Abraham intentions? Is your being busy inspired, or motivated? G-7/1/00 — What takes place when computer is learned? She negatively judges her “forgiveness work”. Would GOD forgive a parking space thief? Her delightful spiritual son is “hearing voices”. Your body, your weight and your perceptions. Is eternal life possible in physical body? Is there a life partner for all? G-7/5/00 — Her mate’s fidgeting fingers are disturbing her. Why can taking revenge feel so good? Does the corn kernel envision progeny ears? Discussing the “Survival of the Fittest” concept. Nonphysical realm’s relationship to the physical? Considering hierarchal and graduational aspects of reincarnation. Why would she choose her negative family? G-7/8/00 — Allowing one’s desires while “allowing God’s will”? Debt, earning, timing, action and financial abundance? Will the meek actually “inherit the earth”? To regain optimistic feeling of her youth? The significance of being born a twin?

Love ❥ Appreciation ❥ Love She Can’t Get Enough
I get really excited when the Quarterly Journal arrives in the mail. I read and reread it for days and days. It provides so much inspiration and motivation. Although I have been involved in the New Thought philosophy for over 20 years, it is my contact with the Abraham materials that gets me really excited and clarifies my intention. I have quite a few of the tapes and attended your workshop in San Antonio. AND, each time I receive the new Quarterly Journal it seems to “jump-start” the process and get me going on the path again. Thank you, and many BLESSINGS for the wonderful work you are doing. PLB — TX
A friend and I visited your Dallas meeting, Nov. 11, 2000. We had a great time and met some incredible people. I sit like a puppy waiting for a biscuit every week for my tape. I can’t get enough of the wonderful relationship you share with each other and Abraham. BM — LA
Journal Is A Jumpstart
After all these years, we still enjoy every one of the tapes we receive from you. There is always something on them appropriate to our lives at that moment. When my mother died last year, the tapes that followed had wonderful and reassuring dialogs about transition. These tapes, more than anything else, helped me to regain my balance. Thank you for reminding me of who I really am! BU — WI
More Joy Every Day
Hi — Just wanted to report... feeling more and more JOY every day!!! I gave away the Oct, Nov, Dec, 2000 Quarterly Journal 14 I just received. Would you please send me one — maybe two more? Its excellent. Thanks, OM — CA
I’ve listened to the Introductory tape, the Law of Allowing and Inner Guidance. I am touched by the love and caring between Jerry and Esther which is evident on the tapes, and the great wisdom of Abraham (which is evidence of a different kind of love) I have written and been intending deliberate intentions for about 3 weeks, and the results are remarkable. Thanks You, JJ — NY
A Different Kind of Love
A Friend From Romania
Thank you so much for what you are doing. I find no words to express my joy that Abraham and you came into my life. So much newness, fullness, joy and understanding I experience. You are such wonderful, humorous and enlightening examples. I start my day with you and I end my day with you. I am looking forward to seeing you in the New Year — maybe even with a friend whom I intend to bring to you from Romania. Lots of love and gratitude HK — NY
My husband and I enjoyed your recent seminar in Atlanta. I also wanted you to know how much my 11 years old daughter, Hannah, enjoyed Sara, and the Foreverness of Friends of a Feather which I bought for her on tape. She insisted I buy her the book, too (which I did). Hannah just polished off the sequel, too (without me). Thank you for all of the work you are doing, and I have to tell you that I was so tickled when Esther “turned up” her energy and I could see it!!!! Both my hus-
Their Hanna Loves Sara
Love ❥ Appreciation ❥ Love band and I saw it and we got very excited (it doesn’t take much!) Anyway, we hope to see you again soon in Atlanta. Have a blessed Thanksgiving!!! SR — GA
am living in the south west of France. Life is wonderful! Lots of love, KP — France I know that whatever tape I listen to at any given time is infinitely collated to be the best tape for me at the time, and I cannot thank you enough for the work and service. The three of you provide the boost to human consciousness that we need to evolve into all that we are. I sense a holy trinity is at work with you three; and I am grateful that you are in my world. I am — Very Sincerely Yours, HH — CA
A Boost to Consciousness
The first book I read was A New Beginning II. It was..... it was... well I am without words. Nothing I could say could convey to you what Abraham’s message meant to me. May I please tell Abraham “Thank You so very much for your wisdom, care, gentleness, and patience. Your words will make such a life changing difference for anyone who reads them. If everyone, who understands and incorporates what you teach, becomes like you in temperament and heart, may the world know you!!” To Esther and Jerry. How can we thank you two for being the “tools” for this work? Abraham is phenomenal, as are you two. May it continue and spread so that eventually everyone understands what they teach!!! Love to you all, RH — Internet
I have been exploring your website and really like what I see. The trouble is going to be what to order first because I am attracted to all that you offer. I am very excited to start my adventure with the Abraham material and especially to read the Sara books with my children. Great website, and thanks for sharing this. I am looking forward to my personal deliberate creation. Also, I have just started a new business, and I can see how this will help immensely. I am so grateful for how the spiritual realm is constantly helping us. Joy to you, BC — WI
A Great Website
Thank you for your outreach and generosity that you have extended to our family. It’s so very refreshing to meet and interact with people as loving and caring as yourselves. All of us have been deeply moved and affected by you — truly, our lives won’t ever be quite the same now that we’ve been attracted into your lives and your teachings. Thanks again, CR — TX
Won’t Be The Same
During the time that I have been listening to Abraham tapes and attending workshops, I have grown in joy and abundance and in the feeling of Well-being. Each time I receive my Monthly Tape I am filled with joyful anticipation and have never been disappointed. The tapes seem to build on what has been said before, and I am developing in new understanding. It really is too difficult to convey in words how very much I appreciate you and this work that I have discovered. I know that those who are ready to receive are being attracted. Thank you sooooo much for all you are and do. Love, R&JC — TX

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

The Book on Tape — Sara and Seth, Solomon’s Fine Featherless Friends
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.

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.

A Twelve Point Synopsis of Abraham-Hicks’ Teachings
You Are a Physical Extension of That Which is Nonphysical.
You Are Here in This Body Because You Chose to Be Here.
The Basis of Your Life is Freedom; the Purpose of Your Life is Joy.
You Are a Creator; You Create With Your Every Thought.
Anything That You Can Imagine is Yours to Be or Do or Have.
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.)
The Universe Adores You for it Knows Your Broadest Intentions.
Relax into Your Natural Well-being. All is Well. (Really It Is!)
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, and creating, your reality. As you find more things to appreciate, your state of appreciation opens more channels that allow more for which to feel appreciation. (As you think, you vibrate. As you vibrate, you attract.)
No one can create in your experience, for no one can direct or 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.)
Actions to Be Taken and Possessions to Be Exchanged Are By-products of Your Focus on Joy.
You May Appropriately Depart Your Body Without Illness or Pain.
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.)
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)

AB-3 LAW OF DELIBERATE CREATION * — Discover the ecstasy of understanding universal Laws which are absolute — no matter what the circumstances.

The rules of the game of life are clearly offered here. 20

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

choosing this thought that feels best out here on the edge of your range, and by holding it for as little as 17 seconds, you have shifted. Now your vibrational range has shifted. That thought that was on the edge of your range now becomes the center of your range. You can’t go back, in this moment, to that further negative edge of your range. But you now have more available that feels even better. It takes a selfish person: You have to want to feel good, and if you are selfish enough to reach for the thought that feels better, the same thing happens again. And if you maintain it for just a little bit, 17 seconds is really enough, that becomes the center of your range. And now, in less than a minute, you don’t even have access to the really wretched thought that was touching you a moment ago. And you now have access to range of much better feeling thoughts than you did before. Try it another couple of times, and you might be back in range with your bright and shiny friend. Maybe not. But one thing is always true: When you make the effort and you shift, even slightly, the entire Universe yields to you differently. Which means, you now have opened to a whole new range of thoughts. A whole different set of memories is now to accessible by you. A whole different pod of traffic is accessible to you. A whole new range of ideas... That with which you will rendezvous, physically, mentally, through memory, reaching into the future, or right here in your moment, has shifted because
of this very minor effort that you have made. You reach the place where you easily get to this really good place of feeling wonderful. But that’s does not mean that you cannot go all the way back to where you started in 17 seconds. We are not asking you to look at something awful, and call it good. What we are encouraging you to do is develop such a propensity for vibrating up here, that before long you have established a medium of vibration that no longer yields you access to the rotten feeling stuff like that. So, your life just gets better and better. The better it feels, the better it feels, the better it feels, because, as you offer the vibration, the Universe yields it, because it is always true: “What I’m thinking and feeling and what I’m manifesting are always a vibrational match. So now, as I’m manifesting this good feeling stuff, now I’m standing in an easier and easier place to anticipate more good stuff.”
Be selfish enough to reach for the thought that feels better.
Should I Take Action? What we see, so often, is, you stand in a place where you don’t want to be. And you say, “I really don’t want to be here, I really don’t want to be here, I really don’t want to be here, I want to be over there. Okay, I think I’ll take this action to get over there.” And we say, before you take the action to get over there, take another step first: Imagine being over there. Imagine the finished place of being over there. Imagine the thrill of being over there. Get excited about being over there. Feel like you’re over there more than like you’re over here.
watching a movie. You’re good at watching someone else’s visualization. Most of you have not guided your own visualization that much.
Do the Energy work first, and then take the inspired action. Because when you take an action to try to correct something that is wrong, all the action does is amplify what is wrong... There’s not enough action in the world to compensate for your vibration.
Wouldn’t It Be Nice If? Here is the key to guiding your own visualization: Here’s a nice way to do it: Play the Wouldn’t It Be Nice If? game. The reason the Wouldn’t It Be Nice If? game is so important, and so powerful, is because when you say, Wouldn’t It Be Nice If?... you’re choosing something that you want, and in your Wouldn’t It Be Nice If? you’re soft and easy about it. It’s not the end of the world. It’s a much softer vibration. “Wouldn’t it be nice if I stumbled on something that really worked for me? Wouldn’t it be nice if the desires that I’ve been holding for a long time sort of came to a peak like a guiding light? Wouldn’t it be nice if I could meet someone who had just run across something that really worked for them, that would light a fire in me? Wouldn’t it be nice if I could reclaim the body weight that I had when I was such and such an age? Wouldn’t it be nice if?...” Your logic may tell you: “Hey, I’ve been at this for a long time. If I knew how to do it, or if I was good at it, I’d have already gotten it done. So there’s something screwed up in this.” And so, you hold yourself in that vibration. Where, when you’re playing the Wouldn’t It Be Nice If? game, much of that vibration will be diffused.
Guide Your Own Visualization Just find something fresh in your now that you’re excited about, and turn your attention to it. You see, there’s a whole world out there with all kinds of different vibrations. And you could choose all around it. But the tendency is to believe that I have to clean all of that up before I can feel better. And so, you say, “Well that’s ridiculous. I could never get that done. I don’t have enough time in this lifetime.” Instead, say, “Where I stand is a very good place, because where I stand is the culmination of a whole lot of things that I’ve been wanting. And I don’t have to go back and figure out all the steps along the way. All I have to do is figure out, from where I am, what do I now want? I don’t have to explain or figure out how I got here. All I have to do is figure out, from where I stand, where do I want to be?” And envisioning that gets easier and easier. Someone said, “I’m not very good at visualizing.” And we say, most of you haven’t practiced visualizing. You’re good at turning on the television, or you’re good at reading a book, or you’re good at
Play the “Wouldn’t It Be Nice If.....” Game.

Quarterly Quotes from Abraham-Hicks The confusion that humans feel is that they think that they are asking with their words, or even with their action, and sometimes you are, but the Universe is not responding to your words or your action. The Universe is responding to your vibrational calling.
hat is it all about? To get things done? No! Because you do them, and you undo them, and you do them, and you undo them, and you do them, and you undo them... What is the point in all of it? It is the thrill of the process along the way. Physical human minds keeps thinking, We have to be going towards some end. And you kill each other by the millions trying to decide what is the appropriate end that you are all going toward. And we say, well, there’s your flawed premise. Because there is no end that you’re going toward. We are all on a perpetual cycle of joyous becoming. We will never get it done, ever, ever, ever, ever.

You are deserving of this Well-being.

aw of Attraction says, “That which is like unto itself is drawn.” Which means vibrations are always matched. So as you experience the contrast which inspires the new idea within you, this new idea, this desire, whether it is a strong one or a soft one, is summoning unto itself proportionately. And as it summons, it is always answered. It is the basis of our Universe: When it is asked, it is always given.

here is a Stream that expands to meet the demand or desires of the Creators. If you have the ability to conceive it, to let it be born within you, and then to find vibrational harmony with it — the Universe has the resources to deliver it, every single time. Cincinnati, OH — 7/15/00

here is not a stream of badness and a stream of goodness, or sickness or wellness. There is only a Stream of Wellbeing. The question that you’re wanting to ask yourself is, “In this moment, am I letting it in or not? Am I allowing it or am I not?”

ppreciation and self-love are the most important tools that you could ever nurture. Appreciation of others, and the appreciation of yourself is the closest vibrational match to your Source Energy of anything that we’ve ever witnessed anywhere in the Universe.

he most important thing that you can teach your children is that Well-being abounds. And that Well-being is naturally flowing to them. And that if they will relax and reach for thoughts that feel good, and do their best to appreciate, then they will be less likely to keep the Wellbeing away, and more likely to allow it to flow into their experience. Teach them the art of allowing.

hose that are succeeding and are thrilled and joyful in the unfolding will often tell you, “I’ve dreamed this since I was little. I imagined it, I pretended it, I used to practice with the hairbrush pretending it was a microphone.” Purity is the alignment of energy. Doesn’t matter what anybody else thinks about anything. It only matters what you think about it.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS “The world is awash in money!” And as Esther heard him say that, she knew he knew that. And she thought, “I know that, too. He knows it so clearly, that now I know it.” It was something about the intensity with which he spoke it, that, in that moment, Esther knew it. And then, for the next month, she must have said that to Jerry 5,000 times. “The world is awash in money.” It was a titillating thought to her, because she, like you, had seen where so many people had pinched themselves off from Well-being, that she’d come to believe that the world was not awash in money. She had come to believe that only a few had it, and they had it stashed back there somewhere where others could not get it. She thought that there was a lopsided thing... The world is awash in money! Do you hear what that means? It is awash in money. It is flowing for everyone. It is like Niagara Falls. And most of you are showing up with your teaspoons. Your economy has always been about, the exchange of human energy: As contrast produces a new idea within any human consciousness, the Nonphysical Energy to supply it flows forth. The economy expands proportionate to the idea. There is no shortage of anything. Those who believe there is shortage, hold themselves over in this place where they disallow the Energy from flowing to them. And so, in their resistance, they have it not. And then they say, “I am proof that there is shortage. And that man over there that is awash in money is the reason I don’t have any.” He has nothing to do with your shortage. He is evidence that there is an abundance.
Flowing With the Current of Universal Currency Question: Is my scarcity caused by my feeling a resistance to receiving abundance? Abraham: If it feels like discouragement, fear, uneasiness, frustration, if it feels like anger — thats what it means. That scarcity feeling has all those feelings wrapped through it. They are all indicators of some resistance within you. What those feelings are actually saying is, “Ah, as I’m feeling this thing that I’m calling scarcity, I’m a vibrational mismatch to the abundance that I want. I want abundance, but I’m not vibrating there. So as I reach for the thought that feels better, reach for the thought that feels better... so that those negative emotions subside, now I’m no longer resisting. I’m allowing. I’ve lined up the Energy within me.” Once the manifestations start coming in response, it gets easier and easier and easier. Now it’s easier to hold yourself in that good feeling place because you have more things of an appreciative nature surrounding you. Your second million will come much faster than your first, because as you get comfortable with the feeling of the first, the second is natural. And the third and fourth. Esther heard a very wealthy man, Ted Turner, saying, “The world is awash in money.” And he knew it as he spoke it. It is his experience, everywhere he turns. He gave a billion dollars to the United Nations. Money is flowing to him and through him, more than he could ever, in this lifetime and a hundred others, figure out what to do with on a personal basis.

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 BEST THING THAT YOU CAN DO FOR OTHERS,
is to hold to your ideas in a pure (joyous) way, and demonstrate how the Universe will yield — so that everyone can understand that if they can choose it, they can have it. The only time anyone would ever not go along with something that you want, is if they think that your getting it would deprive them of something they want. And, in time, you can offer an example that lets people know that there is no deprivation. There is nobody being kept from getting what they want. It’s all self-inflicted. If somebody else doesn’t get something, it’s not because you or anyone kept them from it. It’s because they are holding themselves in a vibration that is disallowing it.
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-

Great Love Here For You
We received the second Syracuse tape, and I felt such an overwhelming appreciation for the two of you, I just had to stop what I was doing to let you know. Your generosity over the years — the many times you’ve included a full seminar, for example, because it was all too good to edit further — has been so appreciated. You and Abraham have been a daily part of our lives for many years now (I’ve lost track of how many) and life is so good because of it. Thank you, thank you! Looking forward to seeing you at a workshop”somewhere” in 2001. Much love for you here, AS — OH
Thanks for coming to Dallas. We all love and cherish you immensely. Abraham and Esther’s combination of words, insights and humor are beginning to sink in after about six or seven years of hearing you say — “You all make too much of all of this!!” Much, much love and appreciation MM — TX
It’s Finally Sinking In
I want to thank you from the depths of my Being for all the joy you have brought to me and others. You have answered so many questions I have had for years. Plus you have answered questions I have felt but had not yet formulated into words. And you have stimulated more questions! Growth, freedom and joy have grown so much within me! Thank you, thank you, thank you! SLW — TX
Joy, Growth and Freedom
I Laugh and I Cry
My heartfelt appreciation and love for you! This week, I received “The Best of Abraham”, and my heart is full. Each week as I receive the tapes, I laugh and cry and “take thought beyond” with Abraham. My life is joy filled, and I truly know that the better it gets — the better it gets! Thank You! CAL — FL
Love ❥ Appreciation ❥ Love ing our movie sets. We all are constantly pausing the tapes, jumping out of our chairs, running back and forth, sharing something just heard and what it means to us and working hard not to get into too lengthy a discussion at the time. In addition the tapes have created such a noticeable pile on our desk, it has drawn the attention of many, from the cleaning lady to famous actors, directors and producers. My, how L.O.A. (as we here call Law of Attraction) works its magic ha?... Please feel my HUGE appreciation for your involvement in all of this. It is a rare and incredible thing to experience something so profound that is rooted and continuously involves people (you guys) that are not even consciously aware of their direct contribution. So with this letter, let it be known now!!! Maybe the best words are — THANK YOU ONE ZILLION TIMES OVER AND THAT SAME THANKS REPEATS ITSELF EACH AND EVERY DAY. Dramatic, I know, but true from the heart and only appropriate coming from a movie maker. Happy Holidays and all the days after, EMS — CA
“Tis the season and we just wanted to tell you how much we appreciate having such special friends. Ones who truly live the “joyous life” throughout the year. You are both wonderful teachers, by the example you set. We’re very happy to hear about the two new books on the way and the new center and all the experiences you encounter, almost daily. We’re excited for you. We think about you always and love you both a lot. Lovingly, L&K — IL
Living The Joyous Life
I just wanted to thank you all for a wonderful weekend in San Antonio. This was my first workshop, and suddenly all the Abraham tapes I have in my collection, are “real and living” messages especially for me. Although I had been listening to them on a daily basis — it was hearing Abraham’s message in real life that made such an impact for me! It was definitely an experience of enlightenment for me, and I am truly motivated to move on and become the best I can. Thank you for making your home and business open for us to visit on Sunday. I really appreciated your hospitality. I met so many wonderful people and saw such a glow of contentment and enthusiasm around the group! It was fantastic! NC — TX
Weekend In San Antonio

The CEOs of Bliss
I can’t begin to tell you the profound impact Abraham’s message has had on my life. Not only from my perspective of becoming a passionate deliberate creator, but also due to the countless experiences I have had, sharing the information with others. For example: a group of fellow Set Designers that I work side by side with, subscribe to the Weekly Tape Program and listen intently, day after day, with headsets while draw-

Without overstating it, the three tapes I received as the 12/15/00 Weekly Tape Series, will be my very best gift this year. Make yourself a great holiday season this year. I know 01 is going to be the biggest and best yet for all who I know. Thank You Very Much!! LSH — TX

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Reluctant Boss Seeks Feelings of Freedom Question: I’ve been a very effective linear creator. And I’ve discovered the possibility, through our last discussion, of what, in my imagination, is holographic harmony between all of my desires. And I’d like to allow that. Abraham: When you speak about these desires, and you think about the linear process that you have been applying, do you think that you’ve been thinking that the creation, or the allowance of your desire is about your action? Is that why you have to line them up and only deal with them one at a time, because you can only do one thing at a time? You are launching desires, constantly, and then if you are holding yourself in a place of feeling good, why not allow them all to be simultaneously manifested? Why hold yourself in a linear fashion? Guest: Well, that’s exactly what my new idea is: … Freedom being a quality I value very highly, I feel I can only have freedom if I maintain a sense of invisibility in the world. My pattern of thought has brought lots of wonderful opportunities into my life that I’ve attracted because I want them. And then I’ve turned them down because I believed they would impinge on my sense of freedom. Abraham: You can let a desire for freedom be one of the dominant vibra-
tions within you, and the Universe has to yield that to you at the same time that it is yielding all the other things that you desire. Put freedom in the equation, and hold yourself in vibrational harmony with it, and the Universe will find a way to give you everything that you want within the feeling of freedom that you also want. You have come from the place that many people have come from, or are still standing, where there is this action-oriented approach to most things that says, “I only have so many hours in the day, and so, I can’t bite off more than I can chew.” But when you step back from the action — and you begin to realize that these rockets of desire, and the Energy that is produced within them, is many times more powerful than any action that you could offer and that your work is about visualizing and allowing, it’s not about finding yourself in some sort of action — then you begin to recognize that you could simultaneously do hundreds, if not thousands, of things, because it doesn’t take much time to focus. But the trick is focusing purely. What makes physical beings think that it takes more time, or that they can only do one thing at a time, is because, very often, they have an idea of what they want, but then they notice that it hasn’t happened. And so, they hold themselves in vibrational discord, and so, that’s why it does not come about. And so, what you’re talking about, here, is discovering a way of holding a pure thought about many things simultaneously. Continued on page 43

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.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Continued from page 40
they may begin to vibrate as you do. Which means they may, very soon, not be a vibrational match to the role that they first came to. In which case, you joyously release them to whatever the Universe has then provided for them through Law of Attraction — while the Universe brings to you yet more who are a vibrational match. The Universe is going to work it out, Law of Attraction will work it out, and you do not have to hold yourself responsible — your work is, constantly, to just say, “These things I want. These things I want. These things I want.” When you are beginning to work in a team involvement, even if it’s a relationship with one other, what very often happens is: you have this plan of that which you want. You have launched this dream. And you usually send up a strong enough rocket that the Universe yields to you very good matches, especially in the beginning. But then, because you were not pure in your vision, or because you are, like most people, offering your vibration more about what you’re observing than anything else, you observe the conditions of your staff, or you observe what’s happening there. And as you observe it, and what you are observing does not match your vision, because it’s in your face, and because you have a greater habit, most of you, of observing than you do of visualizing — you begin to achieve vibrational harmony with the very discord that you despise. So you hold around you people that keep making mistakes, or people
Guest: I am a reluctant boss because I sense that the responsibility for others around me will impinge on my freedom. At the same time, I love being a leader, and I’m very effective as a leader. I want to hold and sustain a vibration where I enjoy and delight in the clarity and capability that I share — and also do what I want, when I want, and how I want. Abraham: When you have been beating the drum of freedom for as long as you have, and we beat it, too, what happens is, if you are a leader or a boss, where there are others who are following you, sometimes there is this feeling within you of hypocrisy, because you’re saying, “I demand freedom for myself, but you all need to do this certain list of duties that I’ve given you.” And so, sometimes it feels that they are not free within the limits that you are offering. Understand that Law of Attraction is the great sifter. Law of Attraction is sorting everything out, and it’s not your job to be the sorter. It’s your job to say, “Universe, these things I desire. Please bring to me those beings, those thoughts, those circumstances, and those events that are a vibrational match to this.” So then, the Universe reaches out and finds those people that are a vibrational match to those things, and brings them to you. You are not keeping them from their freedom, Law of Attraction is bringing them to that which is a vibrational match to where they are. Now, it’s possible, as they begin to get a sense of who you are, and as they begin to watch the way you live, that
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS vision, but they are sensitive to what is happening. And as they are sensitive to what is happening, they hold vibrational harmony with what is happening — so that nobody is a vibrational match to their vision. If people say, “What’s your role here? you say, “I am the creator. I am the visionary. And if they say, “What’s my role here?” you say, “Your role is whatever you choose it to be. It’s not my job to decide your role. I’ve done such a good job of deciding my role, that Law of Attraction is working everything else out. Maybe you’ll fit in here and maybe you won’t, that’s not my job. I’m not managing this. I’m not orchestrating this — I am envisioning this. All I’m doing is holding my vibration pure. The Universe will take care of everything else. I need no managers. And if I did, the Law of Attraction would find them, and they would just be down here managing each other. I’m going to, once and for all, let the “giant manager in the sky” manage in the way that it always does. It manages to perfection.” Now, that doesn’t mean that you will not feel inspired to get into some action — because action is delicious. When you’re feeling free, you get inspired to all kinds of action. There is nothing more exhilarating than to be involved in the action when it is inspired from the Stream of pure desire. It’s great fun to be involved in action under those conditions.
that keep not being happy in their work, or people that are not very creative, or people who don’t feel free and are moaning about it. And it is being surrounded by that, that makes you make these decisions: “I don’t want to be a boss.” We don’t want you to be a “boss”, either. We want you to be a visionary. We want you to be a visionary that’s a vibrational match to your own vision. We would like you to hire, at the most reasonable rate that you will ever imagine, an incredible Manager called Law of Attraction. Law of Attraction will do all of the managing. Law of Attraction will do the inspiring, the reprimanding, (There won’t be any, but sometimes it feels so to you ) and so, the Law of Attraction will do all of anything that you would need a manager to do — if you will finally, once and for all, assume the role of visionary. When you hold yourself in the place of visionary, then Law of Attraction takes care of everything else. And there will be a steady stream of anything that you need, making its way, powerfully, into your experience to provide for you all of the details that are necessary in the actualization of your vision. You are always going to be surrounded by people who are making their way through this. And if you get very sensitive to where they are, you just end up where they are. And so, just keep maintaining your vision, and let them rise to it or not. If you maintain your vision, they must rise to it — or they will vibrate out of your experience. Most people do not maintain their vision: They have a

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS To Be Ageless Forever with Diabetes Diagnosis?
waltzing into your life, on a regular basis, to facilitate anything that you have envisioned. Think about it: You have this really good manager in place... who delegates really effectively to other managers, who delegate really effectively to other managers... and the whole thing runs like a well-oiled machine. All you have to do is occasionally point it in a direction here or there, through the power of your thought, and you have absolute confidence in those abilities of all of those managers and sub managers and sub managers, everybody playing the role that they play... Now, in the same way, once you get that worked out in your mind — where you are trusting that the Law of Attraction will orchestrate all of that, relative to that — then you can start applying that same process to your body. Actually, it’s easier relative to your body than it is relative to others, because the cells of your body are actually operating in much greater cooperative fashion than the people in most organizations. But it is the same process.
Question: There are two areas. One is, I want to be ageless forever! The other is, I have insulin dependent diabetes. And I’ve been applying your suggestion that I take that “Stick” about how well I’m doing, measuring my blood sugars... and just put it away. And, indeed, I’m now in a whole new place: I have succeeded, I’ve accomplished that. I have more vitality. I’m physically active, dancing, and riding horses, I’m a happy girl. And I was really fascinated when you said that a person is 24 hours away from regenerating the tissue in their pancreas. And I’d like to know how to do that. Abraham: We were talking about your not wanting to be the boss? And how that’s not your job, anyway? That your job is the visionary, and Law of Attraction is the Manager? Well, Law of Attraction is the manager that will orchestrate all of that, too. There’s a tendency to get too actively involved, even in the visualization process. And so, you’re better off envisioning the outcome than you are envisioning the regeneration of the tissue, because it’s not something that you can see. That’s the problem with medicine in your culture. There is so much examination over what’s gone wrong that they hold themselves in the vibration of resistance that does not allow the cure, or does not allow the healing. And so, keep dancing. Keep being the happy girl. That’s the answer. Keep trusting this huge, effective manager that is
Question: So, I delegate to my manager that, in addition to my desires, and I have a multitude of desires. I delegate all of them, basically, and I say, “I’d like to generate insulin inside my body?” Abraham: We wouldn’t even go that far. We would say, “Manager, you know what to do. You know what this body needs. The cells are giving you the indicators on a regular basis. Go to it. And I’ll do my role, which is to hold myself in this light, fluffy, good feeling, rampage of appreciation, place, so that you can do your work in a non-restricted manner.” Have you ever known managers who over-managed to the point that the people who knew what to do couldn’t get it
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS done? [yes] Where, if they’d just been left to their own devices, they would have figured it out? So worried about things not happening, that they sort of over-managed — until they created an environment that did not allow the work to be done? Well, that’s the sort of thing that happens relative to your physical body when you get too consciously involved in trying to orchestrate. You don’t need to tell your body that it needs to produce insulin, but you think you do, because you’re taking it externally. And so, you’re saying to yourself, “Well, since my body doesn’t produce this, and since I’m now utilizing it in order to bring myself into balance…” And we say, that is too involved. That is too much management. Instead, what you’re wanting to say is, “I’m doing this, in the meantime, but my body knows what to do. The cells of my body know what to do.” If you knew then what you know now, this diabetes would have never begun, and certainly would not have been able to be perpetuated. But you didn’t know then what you know now, and so, in your Energy misalignment, that’s what got started. That was a crack of least resistance. And then, once it has manifested, now, what has manifested has your attention. And that’s the only reason it’s remaining. The Energy of your Being would not produce it today. So if the Energy of your Being would not produce it today, why is it remaining today? For one simple reason: It exists because you coontinue to observe it. That’s the only hook. “Because it has manifested, and now I see it, or now I experience the repercussions of having it — now that holds me in vibrational harmony with it.” And so, that’s why we say... “The more things you can do to distract yourself from it, the better.”
Question: And let go of the time reference, as well? 24 hours is immaterial? Abraham: It doesn’t matter at all. You’re an eternal being. Why not let this be the opportunity of feeling the ecstasy of bringing yourself into alignment? Why not experience the thrill of getting an idea, and holding it purely in your mind, and watching the cells of your body? Why not let that be an adventure, or a journey, that is delicious for you?
Can I Get Over There From Here? As you stand here and you say “I’d rather be over there,” what you’re actually saying is, “I want to go from here to over here.” And we say, that’s not very likely, is it? There is some distance to travel from here to there. “I don’t want to have to get over there. I want to be over there.” And we say, “Well, the way you be over there is by getting there in your mind.” And so, how do I get from here to over there, without that feeling of having to traverse the distance? And we say, by feeling that you are already over there. When you are very clear that you are here, and equally clear that you would like to be over there, there is a tendency to sort of be in both places at the same time. In other words, “Here I am, I want to be there. Here I am, I want to be there. Here I am, I want to be there. And so, the consensus of your vibration is not making much movement. Where, if you could stop feeling so profoundly where you are, and start feeling more about where you’re wanting to be, then your vibration is purer about this.
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Now, that’s not an easy thing to do when it has something to do with your physical body or your physical experience, or the stuff you see around you. In other words, “Here is where I am. How can I not recognize that I am here?” We’re not asking you to stop recognizing that you are here. We’re just asking you to spend more time thinking about where you want to be than you do about where you are. You just have to make where you are going feel more familiar than where you are. And we think that if it really, really mattered, if you were really in a place of strong discomfort, that you might spend more time doing that. We think that we would make it a non-issue. We would start saying, “I’m happy where I am. I’m happy where I’m going. I’m happy along the way. I’m happy eternally. I’m not trying to get from here to there because I’m not happy here — I’m just going from here to there because that’s the natural process.”
We want to find ways to convince you that the Well-being that you’ve been asking for is being answered. Your wish is granted. Now it’s time for you to start accepting that it is done. In other words, “The financial institution has granted my request for a home loan. The school I have chosen for my child is fantastic. My body feels great. The money is flowing. My mate truly adores me. I have creations within me that are expanding. There is beauty before me. Every day of my life will be delicious. My future is bright. There is no such thing as decline. I am a vessel continually infused with powerful Energy. Well-being truly abounds. The earth spins in its orbit. The tomatoes continue to grow. My cells know what to do. My breathing mechanism is perfect. My metabolism is perfect. My elimination system is perfect. My blood knows what to do...” In the same way that you don’t put the sun coming up on your To Do list, don’t put creating insulin on your To Do list. Just appreciate yourself into the Well-being that is natural to you.
Diffusing any sense of lack of Well-being You’re wanting to diffuse any sense of lack within your experience. “I would like my body to produce insulin, but it’s not a big deal, because I have plenty of insulin available to me. And so, my body is maintaining its balance. And whether I’m getting it this way or that way, I’m already where I’m wanting to be.” For example, if it’s relative to dollars, Certainly I’m wanting more dollars, but I’m not wanting more dollars because I’m in a place of lack, or of not enough dollars. There are plenty of dollars coming.” Your dominant work is to diffuse any feeling of lack, or any feeling of pushing against anything. That’s the way you hold yourself in this place of greater allowance.
Guest: I’ve had a really long To Do list, haven’t I? Abraham: Yes, because you’ve been trying to justify your worthiness through it. And nobody’s watching. That’s the important thing. All that worthiness you’ve been striving for is misguided. Guest: Well, every statement you’ve made, I fully feel and agree with. And I’ll just enjoy myself. (Excerpted from Abraham-Hicks Workshop — Porland, OR — 5/20/00)
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS corn, intention. The difference between you and the clam, or you and the corn, is that once you get into this body, your consciousness is fully functioning and continuing the discerning. You have the ability to know, by the emotion that you feel, whether you are summoning and how much, and whether you are allowing and how much. Every consciousness perceives where it stands. Whether it is the clam, or whether it is the human, it has a perception of where it be’s. And in its perception, it knows preference, and in its preference, it is asking, and in its asking — it is answered. The big question here is, which beings are practicing the Art of Allowing? The corn does. The human sometimes doesn’t.
Does A Corn Kernel Envision Progeny Ears? Jerry: Does a grain of corn envision itself as a pollinating, reproducing, grain bearing, ever-living being, or are only humans able to envision? Abraham: No, the corn does not envision all of that, because all of that was set into motion from the Nonphysical Perspective. But the being that is the corn does not disallow it, either. The corn is different from the fully functioning human, because it is not here deciphering contrast and giving birth to desire in the powerful way that you, the human, are. It is more in the state of allowing the intentions that were set forth from Broader Nonphysical Perspective. Every particle of the Universe, no matter whether it is a cell in your body, or whether it is a cell in a kernel of corn, has the ability to perceive. And where it is perceiving, it can feel, “This is preferred to this.” All consciousness, no matter how fantastically focused, or how it, by human standards, is insignificantly focused, has the ability to perceive and discern preference. And the preference is an “asking” that is answered by the Universe. The difference in the kernel of corn, or the clam (which we’ve discussed is always happy, really is happy) is that that being is not finding things to focus upon that are causing it to disallow the Energy that is flowing. From Broader, Nonphysical Perspective, you set forth, as did the
Jerry: Esther and I got a handful of chickens a few years ago. They came to us as baby chicks right out of an incubator. They’d never known a mother or a father. And yet, when the little chicks were outside, and a butterfly flew over, I heard the little rooster chick go “.....” a little sound like they make when they’re big roosters. And all the little hen chicks, (still only days old) went scurrying for cover. Just like grown hens would do. It gave me the impression that somehow they had learned, perhaps in a previous life, that when a hawk flew by, and when the rooster did this, all the hens should take cover, as the rooster had a better chance of defending the hens against the hawk, perhaps… At any rate, somehow they knew, in this next life that… they had somehow learned and then carried that learning.
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Abraham: That is not the way it was at all. The chick is not recalling from past life. The chick is connected to Source Energy in the now, and being guided, as to his experience, now. Jerry: What do we learn in this life that we don’t have to learn all over again the next time we live in physical? Abraham: Nothing. This is the reason that you don’t all come and go at the same time. The environment that is around you is knowing, and then, when you come forth into the environment — you are guided to information. Every now and again we get this question. Someone will say, “Abraham, I’ve banged around in this physical experience for a very long time, and now I understand about Nonphysical, and I understand about Inner Being, and I understand about emotions, and I know how to hold myself in a place of allowing. And now, my life is so wonderful... When I croak and I’m reborn, do you mean I have to go through all of that again?” And we say, to differing degrees you are resistant to allowing this knowing that comes forth, but you are, every time, every one, born with a Guidance System. And if you are selfish enough to listen to the way you feel, you always can feel when you are on your path. The better you feel, the more you are in concert with the Source Energy. The worse you feel, the more you’ve pinched it off. It has always been true. Have you noticed that as you are coming forth as a human species, you are coming with a greater and greater sensitivity and intent to be selfishly driven? And this is a magnificent thing.
People keep telling you it is not good to be selfish. And those people who are telling you it is not good to be selfish, are those people that want you not to satisfy your selfish desires — but instead, to answer their selfish desires. They say, “Don’t be selfish and do what you want. Be unselfish and do what I want.” And so, the selfishness that is coming forth, it is about individual beings coming to recognize the guidance that is coming forth from within. Because we do not know any of you who want anything, whether it is a material object, a relationship, a state of being, whether it is a physical condition... There is nothing that you want that is for any reason other than that you believe that you would feel better in the having of it. And so, as these little beings are coming forth, they are driven with this desire to feel good. And they are, more and more, finding themselves unwilling to participate in those things that you’ve decided are perfect for them that don’t feel good to them. And so, what is at the heart of your coming into fuller, faster connection to Source Energy, is this selfish drive to feel good. When you are willing to follow your bliss, you are in the place of allowing who you really are to flow through. You see, the little chick follows his bliss. He goes where the next bug leads him. He does not feel guilty about not making sales calls. He does not feel angry about somebody taking his parking place. He does not feel unhappy that a future employer does not understand his true talents. He just be’s who he is, and follows his bliss. And in his less complicated vibration — he allows Well-being to flow. (Excerpted from Abraham-Hicks Workshop — Milwaukee, MI — 7/5/00)
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS words, it is a structure that is in a state of becoming. Even that creature that is standing there, let us say it is the rooster that you are talking about that ultimately is determined to be the one that is the fittest of all of them. As that rooster is standing there evaluating the contrast, and summoning, the Nonphysical Energy is pouring through. And as for the rooster who ultimately becomes the looser in this situation, he is doing the same thing. The contrast is causing him to summon the Nonphysical Energy.
Discussing the “Survival of the Fittest” Concept Jerry: What is it about a rooster that he’s not willing to share his hens with another rooster? When we have two roosters, we have to separate them, or the one that has all the hens just runs the other rooster off. And they’ll just fight ‘til one of ‘em’s almost dead over those hens. Abraham: Do they fight ‘til one is dead? Or do they fight until one is acknowledged to be the fittest?
Jerry: ‘Cause I’ve always felt really sorry for all the bulls and the roosters that aren’t allowed in on the herd. And this I’ve been wanting to understand for a long time. Another thing: Are we going against nature when we try to protect that which isn’t surviving? When the fittest try to help the less fittest survive, are they going against the nature of the whole thing?
Jerry: I’ve never seen them fight ‘til one’s dead, one usually ends up the fittest. Abraham: And so, then the rooster that is the strongest is the one that perpetuates the herd of birds? Jerry: That’s the survival of the fittest theory, isn’t it? But it’s not a selfish thing on the part of the rooster?
Abraham: Yes. What does your chicken do?
Abraham: It is a selfish thing on his part, and a selfish thing on the part of the other. So here you are, physically focused, and you have this a combining of the physical environment and the Nonphysical environment that make up your physical experience. And so, as the Nonphysical Energy is pouring forth, it is pouring forth into that which is physical. And the structure that is physical is the structure that is actually evolving. In other
Jerry: It pecks on the weak chicken. It takes the weak chicken’s parking place, that’s what it does. Abraham: The reason we ask is because you’re really onto something that is important. You see, the thing, that humans often forget, that the beasts of your planet are fully aware of, is that there is no competition. The beasts of your planet understand that all is well. 50
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Very often, physical beings think of themselves as this clump of physical flesh, and there is, by their logic then, a clump of Nonphysical Energy that is pouring through them. That’s why you think in terms of being dead or alive. You think in terms of a soul that pours itself into physical body. It is not a clump that is assigned to a clump, it is a Stream of Consciousness. The Stream of Consciousness, while it is certainly expressing itself individually, it is a Stream of Consciousness that is expressing itself multidimensionally. And so, the Consciousness that is projecting through the beast or through the chicken, is same Consciousness. In other words, there is this Consciousness that is rooting for the survival of all of that. With something like the chicken, it is coming forth, certainly, intending to have a lovely life, and wanting the best experience. But it is coming forth with a different set of intentions than you, the physical human, come forth with. And so, as it comes forth, it is not pushing against the idea of being someone’s lunch... It is not feeling any competition. It is focused powerfully in the now. It is letting the contrast produce desire. It is allowing the Nonphysical Energy to pour through in a very powerful way. And even though — by your standards, you might disagree — it truly is living happily ever after. And so, getting back to your roosters fighting: the chicken that is battling and winning its feeling of dominance, is not leaving the other
chicken feeling broken and defeated. That’s a human characteristic that you are laying over the top of it. In other words, the chicken is as a species rooting for its survival first and foremost. Jerry: It’s the survival of the species, is that it? As opposed to the individual? Abraham: Yes. And so, the way that you might look at it, is that it is Nonphysical Energy that is projecting itself into both chickens. Or into all chickens. And the competition is about a bigger game than this individual moment in time that you are thinking about. In other words, the Energy that is pouring through you is talking about the bigger game. The Nonphysical Energy that is flooding through you is not worrying about the parking places that you are scrapping over. The Nonphysical Energy that is pouring through you, is about Life Force itself. If we were standing in your physical shoes, whether they were physical chicken shoes or physical human shoes, there would be nothing that would be important enough for us to lose our connection to Source Energy. And, eventually, even the chicken figures that out and goes off and lives happily ever after. Even though he did not turn out to be the dominant chicken, he does not worry his life away over it.

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

You, the Visionary; Law of Attraction, the Manager Imagine that you are the owner of a huge corporation. There are a hundred thousand people who work at various stages and places in this corporation, and you are the one who created it. You imagined it. You saw the need for it. You dreamed it. You found vibrational harmony with your dream. And now it’s yours. And there are a thousands who don’t know how to use their computers, they don’t know how to file very well, they are learning at different stages, it’s a constant turnover of people, they’re in and out, they’re squabbling over parking places, some have windows, some don’t. It’s an immense organization. And you have a manager that is just incredible. Because this manager takes care of all of this, you don’t have to deal with anything. You get an idea, and you express it softly. And the manager says, “Consider it done.” You get another idea and you envision it, and your manager says, “Consider it done.” You have such an extraordinary manager that you are free. You’re not dealing with the nitty gritty in the parking lot, not dealing with raises or vacations, you’re not worried about any of this stuff. You are the visionary. And you have a manager that deals with it effectively and perfectly. And you count your lucky stars, every day, that you found this manager. And now, we’re saying to you, you have such a manager — and it’s called Law of Attraction. But most of you do not know that you have that manager. And so, you keep thinking that you need to step into those many roles, and be the facilitator. And then you get bogged down in all that nitpicking, nitty gritty stuff that doesn’t have anything to do with who you really are or with your vision. Our message to you is: You are a visionary. And of course it is lovely to be an actionary too. But if you will let your vision be real and full and you find full alignment with it before you take action — then the effort that you offer is always joyful, fulfilling, satisfying effort. And so, keep telling the “manager” what you want. Not because the manager (called Law of Attraction) needs to hear it, but because every time you talk about it, and every time you come into vibrational harmony with your own desire — you open your vortex of allowing so that the Universe can yield to you a little bit more of what it already knows you want. You are all working much too hard at all of this. It goes like this: You are wonderful beings. You are blessed beings. You are deserving of Well-being. Well-being is on its way to you. Chill out and let it in. Play more. Do the Hokey Pokey. Someone gave Jerry and Esther a little note: “Wouldn’t it be funny if it turned out that the Hokey Pokey is what it’s all about?” It turns out, it is. It is! There is great love here for you. We are complete. (excerpted from Abraham-Hicks Workshops, 5/20/00, 7/8/00, 7/11/00)
