Thanks to a P.I. friend for this:
Here is a bit of a fun question. Do you know what Abe says about things like: "Can people bend objects with their mind? Can people levitate? Can they create an object out of thin air? Can they bilocate?"
I have never heard what Abe has to say on these types of "miracles" and was curious about their take on it.
Do you know anything on… Continue

If you've encountered and perused a wide variety of spiritual teachings with differing perspectives, you might be feeling confused and overwhelmed. I got that distinct impression from a question that was recently submitted to my blog. Well, I've been there, done that, and got the spiritual confusion t-shirt. It was pea-green, and I chucked it.
The Abraham-Hicks perspective overlaps with many teachings and yet is unique in various ways. It contains more depth and clarity than anything… Continue

Here's a thought-provoking question from a reader of my blog:
"I, too, have been studying Abraham's teachings. Have you ever heard them comment on Empaths or Highly Sensitive People and overwhelm? Well being abounds for all, but what if you are feeling stuff that isn't yours? Do you have any thoughts about that? Am searching for some guidance for empaths
I love this question because I, too, am an empath. My sensitivity doesn't necessarily concern other people,… Continue

I appreciate some excellent comments in response to yesterday's blog post about despair.
I'd like to go over some of the suggestions that were shared:
--When feeling out of sorts, take some time to sit and write -- possibly with paper and pen -- what you've been thinking about until you notice thoughts that were likely bringing you down. Once you've identified those thoughts, then reach for thoughts that feel somewhat better -- and better -- and better yet on that… Continue

Thanks to a reader for this question:
"Despair: the feeling that everything is wrong and nothing will turn out well.
Do you experience this? We've all heard of cell phone 'dead zones.' Sometimes I enter a personal dead zone. Here's how it works...
I'm going about my day, doing the next thing, perhaps even walking in the present reality of God's kingdom and mindful of the fullness of life and spiritual abundance within me...and then suddenly the dead zone...a… Continue

Thanks to a reader for this question:
"Of late there are many tensions at my work place due to some very inhumanistic proposals on work hours, leave and pay structures by the management. This makes me feel disheartened and uncomfortable. As this is a management decision, there is little I can do. I have been trying to keep away from discussions and presentations made on the subject, but find myself worried and often drawn into it. I am looking forward to attracting a wonderful job… Continue

"My wife just recently lost her eyesight — completely blind at age 65. Why would anyone want to CREATE THAT handicap? We are dealing with it best we can. Any suggestions are appreciated."
I'm eager to reply to this question received from a friend, for I think many people hold the idea that we somehow deliberately create problems and trouble for ourselves at times. Why on earth would we do that?
Well, the answer is that we do not do that — we do not deliberately hurt… Continue

Mark and I have been attending Orlando Magic basketball games for quite a while now, and we've been season ticket holders for the past three years. Above is a picture Mark snapped of me in 2004, where Rich DeVos, owner of the Magic and co-founder of the Amway Corporation, can be seen in the suit and tie at the top of my head.
More than 20 years ago, the DeVos family came to Florida looking to buy a major league baseball team. When an… Continue

At our recent Abraham-Hicks discussion group, we talked for a while about competition. Is it beneficial? Is it harmful? Does it foster an "us vs. them" mentality or is it simply all in good fun?
At the moment I would have to say that competition, in sports at least, is utterly counter-productive and should be immediately outlawed. But since our Orlando Magic basketball team just lost Games #1 and #2 of the NBA finals to the L.A. Lakers, I am perhaps momentarily viewing the issue with… Continue

Mark and I had a heckuva good time on our recent trip to Washington, D.C., for an annual convention we attended for his work. I hadn't been in that town since I marched in protest of the Vietnam War in 1970. Our Quaker college in Indiana had bused us to the Capitol, where we encountered thousands upon thousands of other young people jostling for a spot somewhere amongst the cherry trees and statues. I had hoped to do a little sight-seeing on that trip, but the tear gas got in my… Continue

Thanks to a friend for this question:
Am I to understand that a person should never feel a sad emotion? Like say if your loved one is dying or in the hospital? If so, I don't agree with that. We are all human and feeling a lower vibration of emotion at times like that is only normal. I wouldn't want to be a zombie who never felt soulful emotions.
I don't think letting your guard down and having a period of mourning or sadness is going to hurt your manifesting… Continue

Today's question from a reader concerns work:
"Why did I pick a job in which I am a cog in the wheel? (The obvious answer is the economy, but there were other jobs out there). I am having 12 hour days with driving and I can barely get up in the morning. The main supervisor is disliked by all in the office and only cares about numbers and maintaining the bureaucracy, even though this is supposedly a people-helping business.
"I needed the health Insurance, but what is the… Continue

This just in from my Facebook pal, Alison:
I understand the potency of our thoughts and the energies and situations they evoke. But what about feelings...they too have energy bodies, they too are very real, and they are also vibrating within us. And I am sure they too are manifesting "something." And what is the relationship between our thoughts, our feelings, and unfulfilled desires?
What if, for example, one's thoughts don't match with one's feelings? What if one's… Continue

Thanks to a reader for this question:
I must write in about an incident which has left my friend in a shocked state. Her little six year old boy, along with two of his friends aged 5 and 4, walked out of the apartment complex on to the crowded street and were only stopped by a security guard when they were over a mile away from home and brought back. In the meantime, the parents and others were frantically looking for the boys. After the little drama, the little boy says he knows… Continue

The process for reaching your ideal weight is the same one required to manifest any desire.
1) Make peace with where you are right now.
Find things to appreciate. Become as happy and content with where you are as you can possibly be, even to the point of (almost) saying, "If nothing changes, it's still OK." It's so important to know that we can't move from Point A to Point B while harboring dislike for Point A.
To many people, of course, this concept is unknown, and… Continue

I think of that old saying, "It's not about what you eat. It's about what's eating you." I must say that I thoroughly concur with that simple pronouncement these days.
But I certainly didn't always. I used to believe that there were good foods and there were bad foods. Living for years in Ashland, Oregon, I became strongly aware of all sorts of toxins and other problems with our food. I thus ate organic as much as possible and adhered strictly to vegetarianism. I grew Kombucha… Continue

One of my favorite inspirational books pre-Abraham was Emmet Fox's Power Through Constructive Thinking
. I highly recommend this insightful compilation of essays written from 1932-1940. Fox was a scientist, philosopher, and spiritual teacher who lectured widely about the power of the mind.
In Fox's own words: "This book shows that your destiny is really in your own hands, because it is impossible to think one thing and produce another, and that by selection of correct thought a… Continue

I met her when we were both single moms in Ashland, Oregon. I'll call her Shelly here.
Shelly's husband of many years had left her suddenly as they were about to move from Colorado to Oregon.
"Uh...I won't be going with you," he informed her out of the blue as she was packing. "I've found someone else."
Despite reeling from the shock, Shelly, trooper that she was, moved to Ashland anyhow, along with her two teenage children. She'd make a new life for herself.… Continue

Before we get started, let's clarify what we should NOT have for Easter dinner: AbraHAM.
OK, you can stop groaning any minute now.
Let's get down to brass tacks. (Ouch, sounds painful.) Many of us have a love/hate relationship with food, and that causes us trouble.
Many of us LOVE to eat -- we love the taste of food, the variety of foods that are available, and the sense of having a full tummy after eating. However, the HATE part comes in because we hate what… Continue
