glad you liked that 'toy' :) thanks for the link, I'll check it out.
In my words, in Abe terms:
Placebo effect = the being's perception/thought effect!
I really love this because science is finding out what we already knew all along.
And yes, exactly, the active agent is the being's perception/thought, not the placebo itself, I get that. The point is that they are finally getting it too, through 'discoveries' like this one. yay yay! :D
PS. if you have any material from Abe on the placebo effect that you can remember, please share it. Not asking that you look for it fro me, just if you have it and you remember it. I'm currently 'playing', sort of, with this topic. :) Thanks..
Hey sweet girl :D <3 I have a link for you, it's not Abe, but I feel Abe would agree with it completely. Just following my impulse to share with you. It's amazing, even to me, after all these years... 've known of the placebo effect for years, it's not new to me, probably not to you either 'cause you know so much :) you feel like an wise mature soul (haha, in a manner of speaking) I just love this subject. If you are not drawn to it, then just delete it, all is well :) Huggies and love, Pilar
(I was gonna send you an email instead, but this is more personal! haha, though no need to post it, I leave that to you, whatever you do is good by me.)
Note: This video has 4 parts, but they are all in the same video/link. But every time a part ends, the screen goes blank and you have to wait 1 minute (or advance it for 1 minute or so) for the next part to start

Feeling on purpose and continuing thinking based on feeling is really a nice lifestyle to be living. I still don't write as much as my wanting for personal control of my experience may mandate, but catching negative emotion and understanding what it means plus pre-paving my emotions by gridding is carrying my experience well and delivering to me a life that I feel is well worth living. Thank you Abe. I think I might be well balanced between attending my vibration moment by moment and over working at this discipline...with room to goose up my energy occassionally when I'm sure I'm focused forward smoothly. I really really like emotional gridding. I love how it demonstrates results so consistently, I love the momentum factor it also shows me very clearly.
Birds, they are the symbol of Freedom. They are the closest thing to absolute, pure freedom you can visually witness in your physical experience. They are so flexible and so mobile and so light and so free and so joyful! They represent the pure essence of your Being -- and that is why you are drawn to them.
Abraham-Hicks, February 8, 1991
The birds of your planet are often messengers or translators of Non-Physical Energy; all beasts are, to a certain extent. But the birds of your planet are used often in that way. Non-Physical Energy, wanting to express something to physical, often finds a bird as a very easy messenger, because the birds are mobile, they are everywhere, and they are willing. And they are vibrationally intuitive, sensitive to vibration more so than most beasts, and therefore pliable to the will, if you will, of the Energy.
Q: You've said that we come from source energy, some of us comes here and the rest of us stays. What is the rest of us doing?
Abe: Rooting for the part that came. And tending to the vibration of what you've set forth. And revelling in the evolution of all that is. And maintaining the vibrational attitude of the expanding universe.
Q: Does it do anything else? (much laughter)
Abe: Well, technical support is of value!
In other words, when you tune in to who you really are, when the physical part of you tunes to the non-physical, it is impossible to discern from which part of you the great ideas are flowing.
Were you wanting us to explain to you that we are eternally aware of you, whether you come to these gatherings or not? That when you set forth a vibration of asking, that we are aware of you? That we have watched you everyday of your experience? And as you are living life and becoming, we give our undivided attention to what you become? And what happens to you, matters to us? And we hold with vibrational integrity the vision on who you have become and never for a moment deviate from it, holding it endlessly?
... You are a powerful creator and you are [louder, powerfully] in your singularity, important to the expansion ...
