THIS IS A "GAME THREAD", USEFUL FOR PRACTICING WITHIN....
In the same way that there is not an instant wanted thing manifesting in your experience, there is not instant unwanted thing happening in your experience. It takes some adapting to vibrations. If you've managed to hold anything, wanted or unwanted, for 17 seconds — there is a coalescing of thought that takes you a little closer to the vibration of whatever you are turning your attention to. Those 17 second increments, are not discernable. And that's why, when you get into that place, it feels like instant manifestation. Just like when you get into that negative place, it feels like instant manifestation. It's like, "Where did that come from? Seemed like it just sort of snuck up on me," instead of snuck up over a long time.
Excerpted from the workshop: Tallahassee, FL on December 01, 2001
If you can hold a thought, just a simple thought, for 17 seconds,
without contradicting it, another thought like it same shape, same
size, same vibration, same tone, by law of attraction another thought
like it will come to it. And at precisely the 17 second point, these
two thoughts will join one another, they coalesce and when they do
that there is an energy that is expended, it is like a combustion
point. And when these two thoughts join and combust, you can feel a
measure of enthusiasm or interest bubbling within you. And in that
moment of 17 seconds, these two thoughts that were same become one
bigger,more evolved, faster vibrating thought. Now, if you can stay
focused on this subject that you have chosen for another 17 seconds,
at the moment that you cross the 34 second mark that is just two
times 17 this now more evolved thought will attract unto it and - in
other words, the thoughts attract each other.
Your thought draws another and the other thought draws it, thoughts
that are same in nature come together. And at the 34 second mark
these two more evolved thoughts do the same thing, they coalesce and
there is another combustion point.
At that point, these two thoughts become one, higher and faster in
vibration. If you can maintain you attention to that now more evolved
thought, at the 51 second mark which is just 3 times 17 there is
another coaleascing, another joining of thought and another
combustion point. If you can hold that more evolved thought for
another 17 seconds, the same thing happens and when you cross the 68
second mark, you have a combustion big enough to affect physical
Just to get your attention we want to give you some physical
comparison; 17 seconds of pure thought is equivalent to 2000 hours of
action. If you are working a regular 40 hour a week job, that is
about what you work in a year. 17 seconds equals 2000 action hours.
If you can cross the 34 second mark, you can multiply your action by
ten, 20.000 action hours. If you can cross the 51 second mark 3 times
17 you can multiply by ten again, a 200.000 action hour equivalent.
If you can cross the 68 second mark - now that is just over a minute
of pure con-contradicted, non-diluted thought it is equivalent to
over 2 million action hours.
Esther said: "Abraham, I believe you, but it sounds proposterous.
cannot fathom that kind of leverage". And then Jerry and Esther
purchased some commercial property over on the interstate, interstate
10, close to where they live in Texas. And there had been a high rise
building built on that, partially constructed and the company went
bankrupt and the building was demolished. And when Jerry and Esther
purchased the land, it was a big pile of rubble. And the big trucks
and the road-graders came, and in two days time, carried this
mountainous rubble of debris away.
And as Esther stood watching it, she said to Jerry: "How long
would that take Carlos to do?" Carlos is the lovely man who cleared
their residential property with wheelbarrow and a shovel. And Jerry
said: "In his lifetime, he could not make a dent in that".
And Esther said: I understand THAT leverage. This is what Abraham is talking
about. When you align your energies with the energies that create
worlds, when you are no longer contradicting at your CORE, amazing
things happen. Now 17 seconds doesn´t sound like much, but as we
watch you we see that most of you at about 8 begin your contradictory
vibrations. Most of you do not make it through a whole sentence
without contradicting the vibration of your desire. People will say
to us: "Abraham,I want more money, I am so tired of the
struggle", that was about 1 second. "Abraham, I want so much to be well, I
am frightened of this illness". You have been trained to be so
objective that you keep shooting yourselves in the foot. It is a little bit
like someone saying: "I want a cup of hot tea" and so they
turn the fire on under their pot, and just before it boils they turn it off,
and then they turn it on again, and just before it boils, they turn
it off and then they turn it on again and then just before it boils
they turn it off and then they say: "For 15 years, I have been
trying to get some hot tea!" And we say: "Just leave it on, just
leave it on a little longer".
If you could just resist the opposite knee jerk reaction, just a
little longer, you will begin to get the sense of what we are talking
The reason that it is difficult for you not to offer the
contradictory thought so quickly, is because you have been trained to
be objective, you have been trained to weigh the pros and the cons,
the pluses and the minuses. You have been taught that this is
balanced or even minded. And we say: You take it to an extreme,
because contrast will prod you into your greater clarity of desire,
that is really the reason of this physical format, we will talk about
that in greater detail as it moves forward. Contrast is essential to
decision, but once the decision is made, if you will turn your full
attention to your decision and do your best to achieve a vibrational
match with that decision in very short order, the Universe will go to
work in helping you to achieve whatever it is that you are wanting.
We were talking with a woman on the telephone the other day about
pure thought and she couldn´t really understand what we were
talking about. These are difficult concepts when you are accustomed to just
thinking about whatever is flashed before you. In other words, most
of you as you watch the television, it is much easier just to just
observe what someone is offering to you rather than it is to close
your eyes and offer your own projection of thought.
And so we were wanting to assist her in holding 17 seconds of pure
thought. She had three very important issues that were troubling her;
financial issue and a health issue and a relationship issue. And we
said to her; "Leave those issues aside for a while, because those
issues you have practiced your negative thought about them so much,
that as you now try to practice positive thought it is still a
watered down sort of process. We said to her: "Lets take three
subjects that you do not already have a habit of negative thought
about". Well, she couldn´t think of any. We said: "Just three
subjects, they do not have to be life changing subjects, just three
subjects that are of interest, but you do not have a negative habit
about". Well, she still couldn´t think of anything so we said:
"Lets talk about the subject of blue glass". She said: "What?!?"
And we said: "Blue glass. You know, some of it is clear and you
can see through it. Some of it is muted or frosted and you can´t see
through it. Sometimes it is made into beautiful chandeliers or
beautiful windows, or beautiful vases. All kinds are made from this
beautiful clear or frosted blue glass". And then we talked about
feathers for 17 seconds and butterflies for 17 seconds.
And then the telephone call came to an end and Jerry and Esther were
in California, they were in San Diego and so they went to La Hoya for
lunch. And when they got out of the car, Jerry is walking down the
street toward George´s and Esther is walking into a shop and Jerry
could not understand why she was taking a detour and Esther did not
really understand it either, she just said: "Lets look in here". And
so they went in and deep in the shop, Esther found a wall of the most
amazing blue glass she had ever seen in her life. Shelf after shelf
after shelf of amazing sculptures made of blue glass. Jerry did not
understand why Esther was captivated by it because he had not heard
the call and Esther did not make the correlation either. And they
didn´t buy anything, it wasn´t appropriate for their house, it
was just AMAZING blue glass!
They had lunch and went to the park and as they were entering the
park, they were surrounded by a flurry of butterflies. Esther still
did not make the correlation. And as they were leaving about 15
minutes later, a little boy, an oriental boy, looked to be about two
or three years old, had found a little pigeons feather on the ground -
and he was holding it at his full extension of his arm running
toward Esther to show it to her. And it was not until then, that
Esther realized that in less than one hour of ours spending 17
seconds together on those three subjects, that the Universe had
managed to deliver in DRAMATIC FASHION all three subjects.
We encourage you to play this game AND we encourage you to play the
game in threes. Because if you play it in one or two, you might be as
Esther did and miss it altogether. If you will play this game just a
little bit by taking subjects that are of slight interest, but most
importantly, subjects that are pure because you have no contradictory
thought about them the Universe will proof to you in two or three
days time that it is utterly and absolutely and ALWAYS responsive to
your vibration. But the reason you do not KNOW that the Universe is
responsive to your vibration is because you are saying: "I want a
new red car, but it is to expensive" and as the Universe is
responding to both vibrations, you end up with no change what so ever. You are
getting the sense of what we are talking about? When you begin to
offer your vibration purely, and you begin to see the Universe
responding to it in other words, if you will just play this game for
two or three days, two wonderful things will happen to you: The first
is; you will show yourself you have the ability to hold your mind on
something for 17 seconds. And if you can do it for the first 17, you
can do it for the second and the third and the fourth. And the other
thing that will happen is; you will give the opportunity to the
Universe to show you that it is utterly responsive to your vibration.
You are going to learn that you really are a beaming energy that is
being responded to. And it is going to give you a sense of control,
it is going to give you a sense of being the deliberate creator that
you really are.
Friends, that is why you are here! You are creators! But let us put
that into very clear terms for you; you are creators MEANING you are
focusers of ENERGY. If you do not have the ability to hold a thought,
you cannot be a creator. You are not regurgitators, you did not come
forth to just observe all over the place and vibrate all over the
place. You came forth to direct energy! And by directing energy, you
must HOLD the thought! Now, how do you know how you are doing, in
other words, how do you know whether you are holding a thought or
not? Well, you have to get sensitive to the way that you are feeling
because you can actually feel the fluctuations of the vibrations
within you. Your emotional guidance system, in other words, the way
you FEEL is the way you know how you are doing!
Imagine a room fan, one of those well made, heavy, expensive, heavy
duty room fans. And it is blowing air in your direction. And it is so
well made that even though you can feel the stream of air blowing
toward you, you can´t hear it, is is barely making any sound at
Now stick your pencil in the fan. Would cause quite a ruckus
wouldn´t it? Well that pencil in the fan, that is exactly what negative
emotion is. When you introduce a lower, slower vibration into a
higher faster vibration, you can feel the fluctuation of the energy.
A pencil in the fan is an extreme example of a fluctuation of energy,
but that is exactly what negative emotion is!
When you have a desire, when you have thought about something and you
have brought yourself to a place of desire and then you conclude; I
can´t have that when you introduce that "I can´t have
it" thought to the higher faster frequency of desire, that disappointment or
negative emotion is your pencil in the fan. It is you introducing a
lower, slower vibration into a higher, faster frequency. You get the
sense of what we are talking about? As you begin to play with this
have you ever noticed, have you ever known someone where as the
longer you talked to them, the better you felt? It was just this
friend, that when you got together, you always got feeling good. You
got silly, you had fun have you ever been with anyone, usually it is
when you are very young, usually about teenage years is when this all
stops, you get together with that group of people and they are all in
that happy vibration and you just play and play and play and play,
until you just parlade into an higher and higher vibration, until you
feel that there is nothing that you cannot do?
That is the feeling that we want you to reconnect with, we want you
to understand that if you could just hold a thought, any thought, for
17 seconds, it is going to COMBUST and give you that energy
sensation! And as you do this, as you begin to do it deliberately,
and then you see the Universe responding, you become creative things,
you begin to then step into the shoes that you intended when you
decided to come forth! You said: " I will go forth into this sea
of contrast, this blessed contrast and out of this contrast, it will be
easy for me to come to a conclusion! And once I reach a conclusion,
then all I have to do is hold my thought in a similar vibration to my
conclusion and as I do that I will achieve a vibration outpouring
that the Universe will match! I am creator, you said.

17 seconds on some things that are feeling really good to me already right now. Just milking :))
overwhelment takes me to irritation where i am not who i prefer to be....
i'm in the house with my kids, a neighbor is over playing, the phone has someone on it wanting something and my agenda is baths and dinner and bedtime in a timely manner having fun all the way...but i'm not happy while i'm functioning and
i realize it
and feel the tension and
notice the tension and
notice the tension some more and feel the tension relinquishing
because i'm more general now in my noticing....
oooo, i noticed i was overwhelmed and was vibrating to irriation and i let that energy continue without me while i got general and felt the relief. i love to notice my emotions and know what to do with them, to know what they mean. i love the feeling of freedom and infinite potential to be satisfied and pleased because i know the game of or the language of emotion, i know the laws that govern all the universe including me. i know how to rendezvous, i know how to be in synch, i know where to put my faith, i know where to rely on for the goodness that i want for me.
i am momentum savvy, i am free. i feel happy to be me. i love to feel ease, i love to feel relaxed and engaged and warm hearted and pleased. i love living my life attentioning my energy and letting life be good for me, to feel good for me, to be a wonderful experience eternally unfolding through me. i love to feel good and i love to know that i am free to feel good and to relax into ease and well being perpetually as life is moving through me.
i love noticing my emotions and then-ing with my emotions...
i love as i'm in my day and i notice i feel good and all around me everything is lovely and i realize as i'm realizing that this is an important moment, this is big because i am attentioning how i feel in reaction to what i've been saturated in...my environment lulled me into happy or my thoughts did and i realized it and i'm noticing and i'm attentioning...hey look at me i'm happy. i like this and want to stretch this feeling out....ahhhhhhh i feel good and like to feel good and what were the things that made me feel that way? what was i thinking as i noticed i was blended with my inner being: I was noticing pleasure in my being. just simple pleasure as i be-ed. i like to be. i like to stretch out good feelings and simply be. i like to notice that i'm feeling lovely and take the time to just relax and notice that i feel lovely. to softly gently carefully glance about and let things be reasons to tell myself i am happy even though i know that what really happened is i caught myself being happy and i'm milking...i'm yesing to the feeling by playing along and coaxing it to stay with me like a kitty that i'm tempting with a string. i love my life of setting my tone and letting the universe demonstrate my tone setting. i love when my tone is being set by me. i love when i am out ahead of my momentum and am guiding in deliberately and noticing how it is going and guiding it deliberately and enjoying the fruits of living thusly and in the continuum doing it over and over again because this is what i do...this is living. i am a process of focusing energy and feeling how that energy feels being focused through me. i am an opinion that is constantly evaluating how that opinion is working out for me :)) i am love and energy and fun and momentum that is aware of the momentum that i be and free to mold that momentum any way that feels good to me. i love that i am free, i love that i am aware of momentum and how i feel and what all of that means to me. and i love to be loving something. loving the laws that govern me will do, loving the moments of invincible freedom no matter what as i'm engaged and living in my body will do...it is something to love and boy do i love loving and loving my freedom and emotional intelligence is a power move because it is shining a spotlight of more and better on this skill that i am relishing in the process of living.
17 seconds or more of knowing my freedom and relishing it, knowing it and expressing it through me.
And if you can accomplish the emotion, you've created the grid. And if you've
created the grid and can maintain the emotion, the details will fill in.Atlanta GA October 1, 2011

Wonderful!! Thank you!!
I love to feel worthy loved and blessed. I feel noticed and catered to by the universe, by something that sustains me, by something that obviously fuels ITSELF by my emotional reacting. I notice very clearly in a recent circumstance that specific nuances that are particularly pleasing to me me me are avalanched into my experience almost hilariously obviously. The trick it seems is to remember asking. I love when I remember asking as things are popping for me. Worthy loved and blessed. Worthy loved and blessed. The many particulars that are in my reality newly are excellent evidences to point at and milk....attention feeling worthy loved and blessed. It is impossible not to recognize and correlate and therefore acknowledge that I am loved and blessed and that I am worthy because expansion is set up to happen like this. Worthy loved and blessed because the universe is set up to expand through me, by my reacting to contrast and so the deal is this: life is supposed to feel good to me and be good for me and I am noticing that it is and I feel worthy loved and blessed and normal and satisfied and at ease with this. I like feeling at ease with feeling worthy loved and blessed. I love feeling ease about feeling worthy loved and blessed. I love feeling ease. I love feeling worthy loved and blessed. I love feeling good generally. I love to feel good indeed.
Very general end of the spectrum for the 17 second game. Reminder to self this same game can be"aimed" much more specifically as " the happy thought "...another hilariously, delightedly and most powerful tool indeed.
